and how very spot-on :)

Esther said...

Wow, you really know your man! That was fun reading the things your love about him :) You two are a perfect match!!

It sounds like you are a pretty lucky girl, you have a good, strong man by your side. What I love most is that he is your strength but can be soft and gentle at the same time-that takes someone special. He is a lucky man are an amazing woman, an incredible mother and such a selfless person. you continue to inspire goodness, as does your sweet girl, in all of us.

Kenzie day #2 looked like a lot of fun! I have no doubt she was smiling down, laughing at all the funny antics you were getting up to!

I am glad you were able to get out for V-day and share that time together. It is so important to focus on one another, to grieve with one another and to 'live' with one another. To do those fun things together, to share laughs and tears and you two seem to be doing such a great job of this, together! I am so impressed by your love, for one another and your sweet baby girl.

Thanks again for sharing with all of 'us'! Hugs, Em
(oh, and the helium tank was an awesome idea!)

What a beautiful day you had. I wanted you to know that Tessa and I also sent balloons to Kenzie on Saturday. We sang her a couple of songs of Tessa's choice. The ABC song is a real favorite. I am sure little Kenzie knows her entire alphabet from the number of times Tessa sang it to her. Everyday at Tessa's school they start the morning asking if you are happy today. After we sent the balloons, Tessa said "now Baby Kenzie is happy." And with a Mom and Dad like you, we know she is very happy.

I am really looking forward to seeing you in April. You are always in my heart.

Love Aunt Joyce

I am so relieved to know that my husband isn't the only one who makes fart noises when we pass someone in the grocery store. Whew!

I love this post. I love the details. It really shows how its the little stuff that makes our husbands who they really are. Its why we love them. :) You can feel your love for Ryan in you're writing.

-I do want to put a little correction in there, that you ARE (and always will be) a great mom. -not 'was'-.-

Love you!

Tristan said...

Sounds like you found yourself a winner! What a sweetheart!

It makes me happy to know that my little boy has grown up to be a really good man, a wonderful father and a fabulous husband. By the way, I did not teach him to make those noises or give him the idea that camo is a fashion statement. But I hope that I did teach him to love. By the way, you have played a big part in who he has become. Thank you for loving my son. Knowing that helps me worry a little less about him. He is being taken care of by a good woman, wonderful mother and fabulous wife. XOXOXO

What a sweet Valentine you have! And he's pretty blessed too. I'm so glad you and Ryan have pulled together during this difficult time. In a lot of cases, these hard times either bring couples closer together or break them apart. I've seen it happen both ways so I'm so glad you two have each other to hold on to. Happy Valentine's Day. :)

Nana said...

Hmmm. Bubble baths and Camo Chaps interesting.

Jessica and Reece said...

I love this post. I can't get over how beautiful Kenzie is, and how touched I am by your complete adoration for her. I'm so glad you have such an amazing husband to pull you through this terrible time. You guys are amazing parents! Thanks for being such a great example, and know I've been holding Lola a little tighter every day since I first read your blog.
