5 Years Yesterday


David and I celebrated our five year anniversary last night. Gina and Thomas watched Erin for us so we could go out to dinner. It was a great night. It felt good just to relax and talk. We haven't seen much of each other for the last week and a half. We were trading shifts at the hospital so we could work and sleep, so it was nice to just have him all to myself for a few hours.
I love this man so much. I knew from the moment I met him that I would love him for the rest of my life. He'd do anything to make me happy. I learned a lot about him this past week as I watched him sleep on a bed that was way to small for him so he could stay with Erin. He sat on her bedside and stroked her hair. He colored with her. This all seems so normal when a man has a child, but he did not have her. The love he has for her comes from the love he has for me. He didn't have to say yes to adopting her, but he loved me and that loved spilled over to her. It's an amazing thing to see.
Here's to five years that have gone by fast and slow all at the same time. Here's to another five years, and another, and another, and another.
