The Second Year

Last week, Matt and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary.
I think it goes without saying that it's been a wonderful two years!
On our first anniversary, I surprised Matt with a little video slideshow of our first year of marriage. I kept the tradition going this year and it was crazy to look back and see everything that we've done over the past 12 months! Without further adieu, The Second Year:
As for the anniversary celebration, our Europe vacation in March was technically our anniversary/babymoon trip, so we kept it low-key at home on the actual day. (We are going to celebrate at Disneyland tomorrow, though!) I woke up that morning to find a giant "I love you" post-it message on our bathroom mirror with a dozen roses on the counter. As I went through my usual morning routine, I found more and more sweet little post-it notes that Matt had strategically placed throughout the house. He makes me smile.
That night, I made a fancy little dinner as well as mini Oreo cheesecakes. We indulged a bit and then cuddled up on the couch to watch our own movie marathon -- our growing up and dating slideshows, our wedding videos, The First Year, and then The Second Year. It was so fun reliving all the memories we've made together over the years!
Matt then provided me with my own request line on his guitar. That man sure can sing. Have I told you that before? I'm pretty sure the baby loves it, because he always kicks up a storm when he hears his daddy playing and singing -- not anyone else, just Matt. (The little guy also has kicking parties while his daddy is sleeping and therefore keeps his mom up for half the night these days. But that's a whole 'nother story.) Anyway, our anniversary was simply perfect and we're both so excited to embark on another year of adventures -- including the arrival of our baby boy!
Speaking of the little munchkin, by request, here is my most recent belly picture. It was taken on our anniversary -- just one day shy of 26 weeks. The bump is finally growing and the countdown has officially begun! There are less than 100 days until our baby boy's due date and we are in full-blown preparation mode here in sunny Southern California.

  1. Ummmm...WHERE'S the bump???? You look great! You guys are a beautiful couple! Baby boy is SURE to be super handsome!!
    (Random questions: how tall are you? You must be pretty tall to hide the bump so well!)
    Congratulations!

  3. Cindy- Thanks! I think he'll be pretty handsome, too, if he's anything like his daddy. :) I'm just shy of 5'9" -- although my height is mostly in my legs (I wear a 36" inseam) and I have a normal-sized torso, so I have no idea where the little guy is hiding these days! His growth is right on target, though, so I'm sure I'll start ballooning any minute now haha.
