Today was our second anniversary. Yes second, that’s it. It feels like it’s been close to five years but nope, just two. In these two years we have certainly had our trials and tribulations. Forget the past two years, just this past year has been troubling, exciting, ah, every emotion you can possibly think of.
Here is a look at the Year that was the 2nd Year of Kevy and Lisy as written by me to Lis :
Our first anniversary! You’re already knocked up! Even though the sex is odd cause you have a body growing inside you, things are still going great! Oh yah, your 27th birthday at Red Robin baby!
It’s a boy! Things are getting better!
A nice trip to San Francisco and that long walk up Hyde Street– twice. I’m so dumb!
A new house, the baby shower and lots of gifts.
Your growing belly gets even bigger.
My 27th birthday! Who cares our baby is on its way! The infamous camping trip with my parents and the dogs that ends up as one of the wackiest labor stories anyone will ever tell.
Thirteen hours of labor ends when the nurses finally believe you’re in labor. You’re awesome!
We cry tears of disappointment finding out that you won’t be able to deliver naturally due to our new favorite phrase “low-platelet count” a phrase that will again comeback to haunt us.
The couple becomes a family when a beautiful son named Lukas is born. We also settle on a middle name – your family name – Stevanato.
Lukas is a month and life is great, except for the lack of sleep.
Lukas turns two months and it’s off to Brazil for National Lampoon’s Johnson Vacation.
A close call on the drive to the airport, waiting for my passport to be accepted, the lost baggages and an ear infection highlight the much anticipated vacation.
A New Year! You return from Brazil, why did we ever allow you to stay two extra weeks without me?
Lukas laughs and my has he grown into that forehead.
Back-to-work you go.
Bruises and spots appear, should we go to the doctors? Nah, let’s wait and see…
The worst month of both of our lives – I can’t imagine you’ve had a better one.
Let’s not repeat what happened, but let’s relive the positives – Lukas is amazing and quickly becomes the hero of Floor 7. He also proves to everyone why he’s one of the reasons his Mom is going to kick this cancer-things @$$.
Also, after deciding to go back to church and renew my faith in God, he throws this at us days later and gives me the greatest test of faith I have ever had. I think I did all right.
Daddy grows closer to Lukas and Lukas becomes Daddy’s hero.
And we realize that life can throw you a curve at anytime, you’ve got to be willing to adjust for the next pitch (I love baseball cliches) and drill the next one out of the park.
Now we embark on a Season 3 of Kevy and Lisy. What will this year bring us? Who knows, I certainly wouldn’t have placed bets on what happened this past season. I love writing about it like it’s a sitcom on NBC. Hmmm…maybe we can make it a sitcom on NBC, they need help now.
Even though the second year of our life together has been less-than boring, it certainly has built our character and strength as a couple. We can’t be beaten. Lis is too strong and I’ve definitely gained some strength in the bumps we have come across. I can only hope that Year 3 gets better and that things can kind of get back to “normal” which is no longer the “normal” we were accustomed to.
For our anniversary I bought her a nice bouquet of flowers and a card and we chatted about what she wanted to do now that she’s been given a second life – sort of. She just wants to spend more time as a family. Sounds good to me! I enjoy having her around. It was a nice simple anniversary, we’re not the richest people around ya know?
Well, Sogra is trying to sleep and all she can hear is the pitter-patter of my flying fingers on the keyboard. So goodnight!
To all you readers out there…thanks for stopping by. I hope to personally reply to most of you that have written and thank you for the support. When I find the time you’ll hear from me.
