A year ago today I met my bonus kids- it was exciting but also a lil nerve wracking. But after the initial butterflies went away and the park broke the ice, we were off and running. It was an exciting day- I knew it was going to be the start of a new adventure, but I had no idea the joy that would come with it.
I knew my life was changed forever the night I met these great kiddos- they were so fun and full of giggles. And they both had jokes and lots of sass, it was obvious we’d have our hands full- but their Daddy and I make a great team!
I had my first insight into the workings of Micah’s thought process that night. We were sitting down to eat and Micah asked to say the blessing for the meal. He bowed his head, tightly closed his eyes and hands, and started his solemn prayer. “Thank you God for our family and friends and for letting us have fun. I hope Mommy’s head feels better. And thank you for bringing us Kate, because we really love her and thank you for Kate. Oh! And thank you for our food!”
I turned to him giving him a hug and said, “I really love you, too, Micah!” “You do?!” I say “Yes, I love you!” Micah then asks, “Do you love Abby?” “Of course, I love Abby!”
He then gave me a truly Micah face- the raised eyebrow and very serious look- and asked, “Do you love my Daddy?” Out of the mouths of babes. “Yes, Micah, I love your Daddy.”
His face lit up and a huge grin came across his face as he said, “Good! So… are you going to get married in 110 Weeks?!”
And that my friends, is the way we picked our wedding date of June 2nd, 2018.
58 weeks and 406 days to go 🙂
