Words can't explain how much my heart overflows with love for you. You have spoiled me rotten in your words of endearment, loving gestures, and acts of service pointed in my direction. Last night, in my exhaustion, I looked around the house and all I could see was chaos...and yet, I needed to go to bed.
After tucking me into bed, with the sweetest of kisses, you went downstairs to perform your magic.
Un-loading the dishwasher
Loading the dishwasher
Tidying the rooms
Organizing Mia's toys
You are my hero! I definitely don't deserve you and I am a better woman because you chose to walk through life with me. Thank you for asking me to be your wife. It's been the best time of my life.

Casey: (rocking back and forth in the chair) "Mia's waking up again. Poor girl."
Erin: (ironing intently) "I know. Will you go get her? I'll go get her bottle and see if she's hungry."
*Casey enters stage left, carrying baby Mia, sits in the rocking chair trying to keep and already alert baby calmed down*
*Erin enters stage left, carrying a 6 ounce bottle of formula and burp cloth*
Casey: "Here you go mommy. (stands up to relinquish the rocker, and hand Mia over to mommy)"
Erin: (to Mia) "Hi sweetheart. Why are you awake again? Are you hungry?" (look over at laundry pile, back toward the clock, back at the laundry pile and sigh)
*rock, rock, rock*
*Casey picks up iron and starts ironing the clothes pile*
Erin: "What are you doing!?"
Erin: "Thanks, my love! I don't even believe it."
Casey: "I do it because I love you. Oh, by the way, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so enjoy!"
Erin: "Stay there. I'm going to get the camera."
Erin: "Um, so I can brag on my blog."
Casey: "No way. They don't want to see my ugly face."
Erin: "Whatever! Please? Please? Please?"
Casey: "No way. You can just write about it. Tell them I wouldn't allow you to use the camera!"

Then came the spotted leopord. I apologize for the blurry picture, but it kept pacing back and forth. Mommy held Mia up to look at the pretty leopord. It stopped. Looked in our direction. And sniffed the air as if to say "yum. Baby!" Daddy, being the protective man that he is, stepped over and growled in the direction of the leopord.
It was a fun trip! We already talked about next summer and how fun it will be to take Mia back when she can walk around and point in excitement at all the fun animals. We can't wait to go again!

P.S. Mia is wearing her favorite outfit - nothing but a diaper! Oh the good o'l days!
