10 Years

Nick and I started dating ten years ago today. We don't do anything to celebrate, but I still thought it was worth mentioning. I mean, a decade together is pretty impressive! When we first started the IVF journey our due date was going to be right around here and I thought it would be so neat to have the baby on May 8th. Just because. Then we got pushed back a month and the idea of a May baby was gone. We had moved on to June. Looks like we were all wrong either way!

Nick is off work today to get stuff done around the house before the BIG DAY. We both have lists. Things that are must do's before next Thursday. Of course, Nick's list is much more substantial than mine. I have things on my (mental) list like wash all the baby's clothes (check!!) send out thank you notes from showers (check!!) get work in order before I go (ahhh hahahaha). Nick's (actually written) list includes things like cut hole in crawl space for additions plumbing and sand and paint chair rail in nursery. His list is long. His list is broken down into what is done each day. My list is constantly changing in my head and may or may not include "look into how to breastfeed" and "look up info on getting a baby on a schedule" ( what? I still have time to figure those things out, right??). This is one small example of how different Nick and I are...and how sometimes opposites really do attract! Ten years and we are still crazy about each other and about to start our family. Can't beat that!

Still, we have come a long way in ten years. From this...
and this..
To this! Yeah, a lot can happen in ten years.
