Jacob's 3rd Birthday

Well our little man is 3 now, it seems so unreal. Braylee is almost 3 months as well. Gosh, they grow way too fast. We had his party yesterday, it was bittersweet because Aaron was not here, he was flying to California for more pre-deployment training. We missed him so much. I got to hang out with a lot of great friends and that helped me keep my mind off of a lot of things. I just wish this was all over and he was home with us. All the kids enjoyed themselves at the party, it was a lot of food & fun :) Next step with Jacob is potty training, he has been about a month without his pacifier, which is amazing for him. [[63%]]

Not ready for this...

  Well Aaron found out when they are going to California, and I guess it just really hit hard. CA is there last stop before going overseas :( Time is going by so fast, which is good and bad. I feel so much more relieved at calm knowing he is stateside, I am not sure how to react when he goes overseas. I am trying to save my worrying for when he is over there, but it is getting so close and getting a lot harder now. Gosh, I just wish he could come home and all of this be over with. We get to go see him this weekend, but when we say "see you later" this time it will be extremely hard because we wont see him again until he comes home from CA and is getting ready to go "over there".

   The kids are SO excited to go see daddy this weekend :) it is so nice to see the looks on their faces when they talk about it. They miss him terribly, just as I do. I can't wait til our family is back together, how it belongs. <3

Back at it....

Well it has been awhile since I have wrote on here, but plan to come back and keep at it. I am hoping this will help while he is gone, and give him something to read when he can. We had the best weekend possible this past weekend together, but of course it went by way too fast. I am looking forward to taking the kids down there to see him again this weekend. It seems crazy that in the past 16 months he has only been home for about 7 of them. Braylee is getting so big, hard to believe she is ten weeks old now. Abby is sick now, it looks like our family just got hit hard by all this crud :( I am hoping we all get better by this weekend to go see Aaron. I looked at my DOM yesterday and it is nice to see it at over 50% but I kind of cheated when I made mine, I did it to his R&R in May then I will change it to the end of the deployment. It makes it look so much more "doable" when it is not such a long stretch at home. I pray every night that God brings Aaron home safely to us. I really do not know what I would do without this boy, he is my once in a life time.

26 more days...

Well I am new to this, but figured I would try it. I am a mother to 3 wonderful children ages 8,3, and 21 months =) and the hardest part of my life, I am married to my wonderful husband..who is a Marine. He wont be home for Christmas, as he wasn't home for Thanksgiving either. He will be home on leave for 10 days in Jan then leave again and miss so much more. I support him and stand proud to say he is my husband, but it's hard. I wait by the phone and wait in line at the post office so much it is crazy. It seems nothing goes right when he is gone and sometimes I wonder why I do it, but I know it's because I love him more than anyone else in the world. Distance means so little when someone means so much. We have been married for 3 years and together forever it seems sometimes, ha ha. Life is hectic and without him around sometimes it feels like everything is crashing down, but it makes me proud to say my husband has your back. I know he loves us dearly, but he is also a strong man who wants to do everything he can. He comes home in 26 days =) We are counting it down, it is so close but sooooo far away!
