On June 6th, 2008 Will and I jet-setted off to New York City for a weekend away with family and it was an amazing trip. The first night in town (6/6/2008) my Will and I headed to Central Park to dine at the infamous Tavern on the Green while everyone else in our party went to see “The Little Mermaid” on Broadway.
The restaurant was beautiful and more than I’d ever imagined. Will and I sat in a garden room with floor to ceiling windows and beautiful chandlers that sparkled in the moonlight. During dinner we spoke about how much in love we were and how neither one of us could imagine life without the other. We talked about kids, marriage and growing old together and before we knew it the time for dessert had come.
All of a sudden our waiter popped up from nowhere and placed a cake in front of me with the words “Will You Marry Me”. I looked at Will stunned as he held a ring in his hand and a smile on his face. He got me and he knew it. I tearfully said “yes” and politely grabbed the ring, shoved it on my finger and jumped up to wrap my arms around my soon to be husband. We were engaged!
Well…fast-forward three years and another monumental occasion has occurred. Last night, June 6, 2011 while watching the Apple Developer Press Conference (yes, I know…we know how to have a good time! LOL) I felt a little heart beating in my tummy. I called Will over to take a feel, and he felt it too. So, to make sure he was feeling the baby and not me he checked my heart rate and the same time. I will never forget the look of amazement on his face when he backed up and said “Whoa”.
A few minutes later I was trying to find our little one’s heartbeat again, and felt a kick instead. I’ve been feeling her move from the inside for a while now, but never from the outside. So, I called Will over again this time to feel our little girl kick. Within seconds of his hand on my tummy he felt a few good kicks and smiled in awe.
We feel so blessed to have such a miracle in our lives and can’t wait to meet our little girl. As each day passes we get more and more excited and are ready for our lives and family to change. Before we went to sleep we laid down and prayed to keep our little girl healthy and safe and thanked God for all the blessing in our life.
June 6th is a good day!
