365 x 2 + leap day = 731 days of happiness

Wow! I can't believe today is our 2 year anniversary.

I know it's clique to say, but the day we got married, was truly a 'top 2' happiest day of my life. I can honestly say that I married my best friend.

Dear Bret-
Thank you for being you! I love everything about you. Marrying you, was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Thank you for always sticking by my side, and supporting me each day. I thank God for you daily, and I am so proud of the life that we have built together.
Thank you for being the best daddy to Dane. He is so lucky to have you!
Thank you for always doing what's right, and what's best for our family. I don't awknowledge your hard work enough!
You are my husband, and best friend.... the perfect combination. I look forward to many more laughs, memories, vacations, movies, and holidays with you.
Dane and I are so lucky to have you as a husband and daddy!
I love you, and happy 2 year anniversary!! Time really does fly when you are THIS happy!
With love,

... and they lived....

Crib Time!

Dane has been sleeping in our room in a bassinet since he was born. I liked him next to us, and really didn't see the rush into moving him into his own room. I think it's a bit strange that in our culture we have our babies in their own room. I mean, we watch them like hawks all day long, and then at night, when they are most vulerable, we put them by themselves in the dark.
So, I have been putting off moving him into his own room.

Well... the time has come, and I told myself that when I was on Spring Break from work I would move him into his room officially! I anticipated some sleepless nights, on both of our parts. :)

So, really I had nothing to worry about! He loves it, and has been sleeping atleast 9 hours straight each night! I hope it's not beginners luck! I really think that he likes the extra room to move, wiggle and adjust in the night!

Being a new mom is tough, you don't know what's the right thing to do! There's so many different opinions out there! I just have to do what I think is best for our little family and Dane.
So far, I don't think we're too bad! :)
