Saturday we had the family together. It was the first time that my mom and Greg met most of your family. It was light and fun and went very well. Your family always makes me feel so welcomed and like they are genuinely glad that I’m now a part of them. I really do love them. Sunday night after kissing me like you always do before we turn over and drift off to sleep you said, “Good night, my beautiful wife.” I hope you never stop saying things like that to me. You have a way of making me feel so special with the little things you say and do. You may not know just how much it means to me to hear you compliment me or do something nice for me, but it means a lot. It’s one of those things that has kept the bubbly feelings continuing into week two. A few things I’ve been thinking about this week: You are growing more and more every day into the man that I know you are at your very core. You have changed so much since we first got together nearly seven months ago and it’s all for the better. Your anxiety seems to be lessening as you’re around people more. You carry yourself differently, more confidently. I can’t wait to see you grow even further, push yourself even harder, and live up to your full potential. I fully believe that you can and will do great things. I wish that I could give you for yourself all of the confidence I have in you.
I love the sound of your voice and the sound of your laugh. They get me every time.
Something else I’ve been thinking about: This week you told me that you want to have a kid with me. I really want to do that with you. You would be an amazing father. I’m excited that we are to the point that we can really talk about it. I’m so ready to begin the journey of planning our family with you. It makes me anxious and happy at the same time.
This week has been a good one. J
