one month and two years
on monday, river celebrated his first month birthday. he partied it up by eating, pooping and sleeping the day away. he also smiled at me 10 times and enjoyed a decent amount of tummy time. his one month appointment was today and little riv is weighing in at 10 pounds. he's feeling mighty strong and capable these days. he even crawled up my chest and headbutted my chin to prove his strength. to which i said: show-off!
he smiled again.
on monday, hank and i celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary. we partied it up by going out to a fancy italian dinner on saturday. it was filled with delicious pastas, cheeses and wine. i had two whole glasses and yes, i was mildly intoxicated. it felt grand. river's gigi offered to watch him overnight that day. overnight, people! of course i did have to get up twice to pump because river's eating machines were about to explode without their best customer in the house. but man, it was a quiet, peaceful sleep we had. and even still...7am couldn't have come any sooner to go over and hold our little man. but back to wedding anniversaries. i am married to my most perfect partner. there is not a day that passes that i am not entirely grateful, happy, lucky, amazed, and fulfilled by this man. this hank. 2 years and about 100 more to go. i love you hanklin. big time.
