The play house rules

Mommy isn't allowed inside..because Emerson has learned the glorious new word.. MINE! And while we are on the subject of new words I should also mention Em's first sentence (besides "what's that?") a few weeks ago she said "more juice mama!" as her chubby little Vienna sausage fingers passed me her sippy cup!! I mopped myself up off the floor and squeezed my little nugget.. Ahem..correction, my BIG GIRL till her head popped off!

4th if July (better late than never!)

Our daughters second 4th. Cutest kid ever! She loved the fireworks but did get a little scared at the once that made noises...hilarious to watch. Such an entertaining age now.. she gives me smiles for days.

Who knew?!

Chicken scratch melts my heart.

The day has come and gone

I am just getting a chance to come to terms with all the emotions and the ability to write about it. It has been more challenging than I expected it to be..The next time I see him he will be all the things heroes are made of...a soldier in the United States Army. The pride I feel outshines the loneliness that has settled in. The highlight of my life has now become the daily walk to my mailbox..needless to say Sundays are hard. Any day I can open a letter that he has sealed and read about his days always bring a much needed smile. Any time I can have a piece of him is a good day.
Sept. 28th can't come soon enough for us. I'm so proud of my husband for his sacrifices and will be counting down the days until we can see him again.
