The date is wrong on this picture (if you haven't guessed). This picture was taken the first time Nate and I went out as a couple to one of his friend's birthdays.

In this picture we were probably dating for about 6-7 months. Little did we know what was in store for us...

Happy anniversary!!! You are absolutely amazing and I feel blessed to have you in my life. From the moment I met you, there was something that drew me to you...whether that be your smile, kindness, or just plain old charm I knew that together we would become something great. Not every couple could make it through the struggles and hard times we have gone through. Thank you for loving me, as well as Kaden, angel Ava and this new baby so much!!!

Do you remember in all those lovey dovey notes we use to write, both of us would put "God chose us to be together for a reason," well I think He knew that we would be each other's strength and hold each other up through all the difficult times in our lives. He knew that you and I would make the best parents for the special babies He created and give them the unconditional love that they deserve. I am thankful that God chose you to be their daddy. You are an amazing, amazing daddy. I am sure you know that when you are around Kaden and he can not get enough of you, the squeals that come out of him when you get home from work, and the cuddles you get when he is sleepy. And Ava, how she would follow you with her eyes when you were in her hospital room. She felt your love and continues to feel it. She definitely had you wrapped around her finger, and is the definition of a "daddy's girl." I can not wait to see this new little boy's admiration for you. I know you are going to have another buddy to follow you around.

I am excited to see what else is in store for us and to be able to experience it with you. I know that there are great things to come (there has to be!!!). However, I know whatever it is, you will be there for me, I will be there for you, and we will be there for our babies. I love you baby, more then words can say. Happy Anniversary!!! XOXOXOXOXOXO

Love Always and Forever,

Funny, I was thinking of your anniversary this morning. I can seem to remember it so easily, as it was the day after my dad's funeral. Kinda like the movie, A wedding and a Funeral, or whatever it is. Anyway, hope all is going well with you. Hope you get to do at least some thing little that is a special reminder of the love you have for each other. Happy Anniversary.
