true love

Adilyn's first love is her daddy. Lucky for her and me Orion is a great guy to love. I am happy to share Orion with our little lady. They have such a special bond. She always wants to see what dad is doing and help whenever she can. Sometimes I just stand back a d watch. They melt my heart.

Adilyn loves her little pool and pretty much lives in her bathing suit. Even when dad is bbqing Adilyn is in her bathing suit.

On days that I need to make dinner without Adilyn helping Orion plays games with her. She likes to watch him play Cut The Rope. Her favorite place to lay down is on Orion's chest. It is so cute to watch them snuggle.

Playing together is their favorite past time. It is so nice to watch them play together. Orion comes up with things to do that I never would. What a good dad to have.

Adilyn is constantly asking to be up! I think she wishes she was taller. Good thing her daddy is happy to carry her around on his shoulders. I am lucky to have these two in my life. They keep me entertained and most importantly keep each other company.

Sometimes I forget how long I have been married. It seems like Orion and I have always been together. It is hard to remember what life was like before being married. Over four years ago I said yes to my sweet man. I still remember how nervous I was the day I got married. I knew that Orion was the man for me but this was the rest of my life and it was a lot of pressure.

I am so grateful that I made that decision four years ago. It was the biggest and best decision. I am more in love with Orion today than four years ago. Neither of us are the same person we were that day and I am so grateful for that.
We had a friend watch Adilyn and went out to lunch to celebrate four great years of marriage. After sushi, only the cooked stuff for this pregnant lady, we drove up highway 1. Have I mentioned how amazing it is to live on the central coast again? It was so nice to have a nice relaxing afternoon to celebrate us. Of course we talked about kids a lot of the time but we also talked about how lucky we are to be together. 

The girl Orion married four years ago was niave about what it means to be a wife and no idea how to be a mom. I would like to think I am a woman who knows how to be a good wife and mother. Of course I have a lot more to learn, but I like to think I am doing a good job so far.

A thoughtful present

For our anniversary this year I told Orion he had to do something romantic. I love my husband but he is not that romantic. I made sure to give him a month warning and weekly reminders. If he did not so something romantic than he would be in trouble. Turns out he came up with this idea the day before! I swear that man is so frustrating sometimes.

He went out and bought a super cute basket and filled it with things I like. When I am pregnant I have to snack throughout the day or else I feel sick. Orion got the idea to make me a snack basket when I was commenting about needing more snacks.
He is such a thoughtful guy when he needs to be. I almost cried when I came down stairs and saw this basket. He also made me some personal coupons. They were really sweet.

Our second anniversary and our fourth anniversary I was pregnant. At this rate I should be pregnant on our six and maybe our eighth.
