Happy birthday, Ric!
I hope you have an awesome day.
We started it early, with a baby feeding at 2:20 a.m.
I know it feels different than last year…because our minds are elsewhere.
We are parents.
Of the sweetest baby girl.
I’m sorry we won’t be able to enjoy the special dinner out that we had planned.
I’m also sorry that I didn’t get you a card. Did you know I looked for a week for the perfect one? But nothing was right. Nothing could express how I’m feeling right now.
And I wasn’t sure if we’d be a family of two or three.
(I guess Rooney really wanted to be here for your big day.)
So we’ll spend the day at home together, get some BBQ takeout and enjoy our new little gift.
You are the most important person in my life.
I am so lucky that I get to live with you, and hear all your ideas, and know if you’re having a good day or a bad day.
That I get to kiss you any time.
And be the mother of your child.
I respect you so, so much.
