SO MANY EXCITING HAPPENINGS THAT I MUST TELL YOU ABOUT! RESISTING THE URGE TO DO THIS ENTIRE POST IN CAPS LOCK! MUST CALM DOWN! MUST CALM DOWN!
Okay, don't worry, I'm exited, but I'm not THAT excited. I'll stick to one caps word per SENTENCE. Ha.
ONE: Yesterday, Thursday, February 23, 2012, Henry told me he loved me, UNPROMPTED, for the first time ever. It is now, officially, All Worth It.
TWO: A few hours later, also on Thursday, February 23, 2012, my brother Justin & his wife Lauren brought an absolutely beautiful little boy into the world. Baby Whit is, like, THE CUTEST LITTLE BUTTERBALL YOU HAVE EVER LAID EYES ON, AND I CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON HIM AND KISS HIS BABY FACE ALL OVER, ALL OVER, ALL OVERRRRRRRRR. (I know, I promised one caps per sentence, but I can't be trusted.) Pictures to come. Just you wait. He is so cute. He is so cute. HE IS SO CUTE.
THREE: Today, Friday, February 24, 2012, is David's & mine FIFTH anniversary. Five years! Holla! We celebrated by taking both kids to the pediatrician this morning for shots & checkups! And then going back to work for half a day! Just kidding. I mean, not kidding that we did that, but kidding that it was our celebration. We're going out for a fancy pants dinner tomorrow night at McCormick & Shmick's (gift card courtesy of my parents) and then maybe out for coffee & dessert (courtesy of a check from David's parents) and leaving the kiddos with some dear friends who offered to babysit for us. Clearly, the universe wants us to be alone together. (And by universe, I do mean, our parents and close friends. Wait, there are other people in the universe?) I am super excited, and I plan to do all sorts of crazy things to celebrate date night, such as shaving my legs and wearing a dress that is not conducive to nursing in. THAT'S RIGHT, I'M WILD.
It's shaping up to be quite the memorable week. I'll let you know if anything else caps-worthy happens to us. STAY TUNED.
