I'm not too much for being overly cheesy, so bear with me on this post. I think the pregnancy hormones have made me a little more sentimental than usual, which is interesting since they've also made me a lot more mean too... I think it'd be fun to tell a little of our history for the blog readers who don't know how this twosome came to be!

We met in 1998 when I was 17 and you were 18. You had no interest in me, and I decided that you were worth chasing. Mainly because you ignored me. You were about to head off to OSU and I was staying home to attend the "fancy" community college. But after visiting you in Stillwater for the year, I decided I had to follow! It was the best idea I've ever had.

And after 5 years together, you finally decided to give in and propose. Problem was, I kinda acted like a turd on the night you planned to do it. Should have taught you a lesson. But you tried again the next day with me in my sweats and my "morning-after-a-party" hair.

And in June of 2004, we got hitched!!! It was without a doubt the most exciting day of my life. (And the best wedding ever!)You graduated from vet school and we bought our house in OKC. Soon after, I graduated from PA school. Seemed like everything had been smooth sailing for us. We thought, hey, let's just have us a baby! Little did we know...

I love this picture of you after running the half-marathon last year! And I could have included the picture of you in the bubble bath once we got home, but I'm a good wife...

Giving quite the show in Vegas! Pretty sure if veterinary medicine falls through, we've got a back-up plan for you! I've never seen anyone work a pole like that...

You've stood beside me through it all... the doctor's visits, the surgeries, the heartache, the tears. You've celebrated beside me during the good times. You've never let me down. I love you more than ever before and I can't wait to have this little baby of ours. You'll be the best "baby-daddy" ever! Thanks a ton for all of the support you've given me. I couldn't have survived the past 2 years without you by my side.
Hope you have a HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY!!!
P.S. Don't go expecting a gift this year. Baby Gil is all the gift you need...
