A post to show appreciation to my person. The one who always has my back; the one who loves me even when I am at my lowest. The one who I miss the most.
My dearest Joan,
We have not found our rhythm and place amongst all the chaos as new parents and things are about to change big time.
We decided, despite all doubts and fears, our back and forth conversations, to have a second child, which happened quite suddenly; and so, we are about to go back to sleepless nights, countless nappy changes, and getting to know a new human being.
I know we are just beginning to get over all the fogginess that comes with the fourth trimester, a fourth trimester that has lasted a few years longer than expected because of our beautiful high-needs daughter. As a couple, we have not had much time together, and yet we are about to add a new member to the family.
I am glad we now have a better idea of what is about to happen. I am glad that I can tell you that I will be hormonal and touched out and to see in your eyes an understanding that was not there during those early days as new parents. I am glad I can share my fears with you and that, no matter what happens, I will always have your support.
We are a stronger team now. This time around, we are better prepared to handle the new challenges parenthood will bring.
Despite all the craziness, I know that we will be able to find those little moments to enjoy ourselves as a couple. I need to know we will be okay because I miss you more than ever.
It has been eleven years since we started dating. It has been nearly seven years of marriage. We have lived in four different countries and three continents. And here we are about to become parents of two kids. Crazy huh?
No matter how many challenges we face. No matter how many times we may disagree with each other or get on each other’s nerves. Without a doubt, there is no one in the world with whom I would rather share this exciting journey.
I love you more than words can express.
Always & Forever
