Today is Hubby’s birthday.

Happy birthday, hubby!

I’m a terrible gift giver.  Lucky for me, Hubby and I aren’t huge on gifts.  I think we’ve gone through many occasions in the many years we’ve been together that we don’t give each other anything.

And it’s ok.

However, I don’t want M or K to grow up being a bad gift giver.  I want my girls to grow up thoughtful and good gift givers.

Last year, I let M decide what to give her daddy.

Last year, she decided to give him a set of socks.

I asked her why.  She told me that daddy needed new socks because he was using his socks to wipe off the white board on her easel and that the socks are now too dirty for him to use.  What she didn’t realize were that those socks were old and had holes in them so he really didn’t want to wear them.

It was a very sweet gesture and a very thoughtful gift.

When Hubby heard the explanation, he was very happy to receive his socks.

This year has been a little hectic, she seems at a loss at what to give him.

(I write these blog posts a few days ahead of time, and at the time of writing, we still haven’t gotten him a present yet.  We’ll be going to Target soon, so I’m sure we’ll find something!)

Happy birthday, Hubby.  You are the greatest dad and husband we could ask for.  You work so hard for us and we really appreciate all you do!  Thank you for all you do!  We pray for continued blessings and many years to come!

We love you!!!

M is growing up to be quite an affectionate little person.

She loves to hug, cuddle and kiss. 

She’ll hug me and give me a little pat-pat on my back, similar to how I hug and pat her.

She’ll lean over and just hug my arm and give it a little squeeze or rub with her hands, similar to the way I give her a little squeeze too..

It’s the cutest thing.

M is so loved that I’m sure she’s learned all these behaviors from us, and her extended family.  I’m so happy that M is surrounded by so much love and affection.

I will cherish these moments because I know as she gets older, the hugs and kisses will start coming too few and far between.

I really hope that it doesn’t change too fast, too soon.

Cry baby.

That’s pretty much what Little M is all about lately.. she cries when she wakes up.. she cries when she is hungry and asleep.. she cries when she doesn’t see me.. she cries when she wants to go down and crawl.. she cries when I don’t let her pound on my laptop’s keyboard.. she cries when I take away something she’s playing with.. she just cries..

Yesterday she cried because she wanted Hubby and I in the same room so she can see us both!

Some days she cries because it’s dark and wants to fall asleep with some light.. then there are days when she cries because it’s too bright and wants to fall asleep in the dark..

Ok.. let me clarify.. she isn’t always bawling with huge tears streaming down her cheek.. she’s more like.. angry, whiny babbling for most of it.. it almost sounds like she’s trying to tell me why she’s upset in her own little baby babble language..

There are occasions where she does cry with the big tear drops.. but that’s really rare.. and it’s not that annoying cry that makes you just want to tear your hair out.. or maybe that’s because she’s my daughter and my patience level is just so unusually up there.. especially for me..

I know she’s learning to express herself.. she’s learning how to communicate what she wants, likes, doesn’t like.. etc..

And I know that she’s at that age where she’s experiencing stranger/separation anxiety..

But this will pass right?

I’ll get my little happy, content daughter back, right?

Hubby:  What date is it today?
Me: April 26th, why?
Hubby:  Nothing.. just wondering..

After a few minutes, I finally realize what he was trying to tell me this morning..

Today is the 3 year anniversary of our first date. 

I think I got through this every year on this date.. so I won’t elaborate much anymore..

Let’s just say that I’m really blessed that we had that opportunity to meet.. and now to build our future together. 

Marriage.. and starting a family.. I really couldn’t ask for anyone better to do this all with..

So.. I know you read this.. happy 3yrs date-iversary! 

Hey hun, why is the seat wet?!

Hubby is the best.. I truly think I have the best hubby.. EVER..

I’m so spoiled.

Yesterday I totally forgot to get gas on my way home from work.  I was going to tell the hubby to go with me after he got home so we can go get gas, but he came home too late and I was sooo tired that I forgot to tell him until this morning..

So what does hubby do?

The first thing he does when he gets up this morning is to get dressed and go out and fill up my car.. AND in the process.. buy me a breakfast souffle at Panera Bread!  All this while I’m getting ready for work..

I have to remember all the great things he does for me when I’m feeling grouchy about him.. because he truly is a great guy.. I’m lucky to be his wifey..

I just got back from a very fun “boyfriend weekend” in the city that he lives in.

It was a fun weekend, and whenever I spend time with him, it makes it so much harder to leave.. or to watch him leave..

It’s especially hard when you know that you may not see each other for a whole month due to both of your busy schedules..

We both knew what we were going to get into when we first met.. and we both decided to continue dating.  I’ve always figured our distance was a good thing.  The distance prevented us from really getting tired of each other too soon.  The distance really allowed our relationship a healthy slow pace.  With us both being burned by our past relationships.. it’s nice to be able to take it a little slower than what we (especially me) are usually used to.

The distance was also good because it gave us a better appreciation of each other and the relationship.  We make the most of our time together and we know not to take each other for granted.  Every weekend we get to have together is special and we know that if God allows us to be together, that we will not take our relationship for granted because we know what we had gone through in the beginning.

Absence DOES make the heart grow fonder..

As good as the distance is.. there are also the bad parts..

Missing him is hard at times.. sometimes.. all I want is a nice comforting hug from him at the end of a hard day.. and it’s just not there..”Scheduling” time to spend with him is hard when you see every other couple easily going out or hanging out.. If we want to do something or go somewhere.. we have to “make a weekend” for it.. we can’t just go when ever we please..It’s getting harder and harder to say goodbye whenever the weekends are over..

I know that if God permits.. we will take the hard experiences we’ve had over this time.. and cherish it.. if we can survive this distance.. I’m sure we can survive a lot more..

By the way.. today (April 26) is the one-year anniversary of our first date.. we went to Disneyland..
