Just a happy vent. And good news!

When Lucas and I started dating he always had either General Conference talks or Mat Kearney playing in his Jeep. I had never heard of Mat Kearney before that and so now he comes on the radio and, of course, I am back in the Jeep first starting to fall in love with Lucas.

Well I was just sitting here and clicked on my itunes and put on Mat Kearney and of course got to thinking about my husband. Here are my thoughts.

I am amazed that I can deserve someone as wonderful as Lucas. He has everything I ever dreamed my husband would have and more. I miss him after not seeing him for just a few minutes. I wouldn't say it is just a newlywed obsession, I just genuinely LIKE him. I love his laugh, and his sense of humor and the way he looks at me the same when I'm angry, happy, ugly, pretty, silly, or a tad annoying. He just looks at me and loves me. I look up to him. He is the only person I have ever met who never ever forgets to keep trying. His testimony shows as clearly as the shirt on his back, and I feel SAFE with him. I'm so insanely in love.

(Dont worry, this Mat Kearney playlist is only on song 2.)

This Saturday will be our 1 year anniversary. ALREADY! I can't believe it. If I didn't know we were married for eternity I would be sad about it. To think that a year can go by so quickly means that the few lifetime years we have together is such a limitation. To get anything short of forever with him would be not enough.

I'm sorry to so publicly proclaim how much I love my husband, and you dont have to continue reading if you don't want to. I just sometimes get so overwhelmed with feeling blessed to have him in my life. I have just layed next to him in bed, and just started crying because of him. Because I never thought it was possible to be this completely Happy!

Being married is the most wonderful and amazing blessing in the world. Having found the exact right man at the exact right time is even better. And you want to know what adds to my luck? I'm having a baby with this man! And most likely many more after this one! Will my kids understand how blessed they are to have Lucas as a Dad? I will remind them often, though I know Lucas has a way of showing love by just BEING. He's wonderful.

Speaking of wonderful, we got some fantastic news today. We are going to be having a darling little GIRL!!!!!!
(picture from under her, there is definately no boy part between those cute baby legs.)

Her cute little hand :)

Can't wait to meet her! We're already so in love with her :) 20 weeks to go!

I'm so glad you were able to find out you are having a girl! When I was pregnant with my first baby, she was positioned with her legs crossed and hands in the way during the ultrasound. We didn't know if she was a boy or girl until 3 weeks before she was born!

I don't think you could stand the suspense! Congrats!

Also congrats on your one year mark! It really does go by so fast but I love what you said about being together forever...I too would be sad if i knew I only got Josh for a few short & fast years on this earth!!!

I think it's funny that our blog baby tickers...show us that we are EXACTLY 7 days apart. CRAZY. I'm happy there is a little lady inside you.
