3 days.....

Three days. Three glorious days until I get my husband back!!! Oh, I am so darn excited, I can't even put it into words! In three days, my husband will be living life with us, instead of watching us live our life through pictures sent through email.

I am going to hang on to my guy tight, but I have a feeling I am going to have battle the kids for hugs. I have no problem tripping a child if it gets me some love from my man.

Kidding.

There is such relief in having another work-up wrapping to a close. I am so proud of Jeremiah, of what he does and the sacrifices he makes, but I. want. him. HOME.

If all goes as planned, he'll make it in time for Halloween, but just miss Jack's birthday by a day. No worry. We're going to celebrate our little guy with Daddy, and that is all the birthday excitement Jack wants. He's ALL about his Daddy. I totally get it. I am, too. 


So, if I'm 'absent' for a couple days, that's why. Pretty soon my husband will get to see how our kiddos have grown with his own eyes, instead of through pictures. How wonderful is that??? 


When he left, Evie was 2 months old, just starting to smile and pretty much sleeping all the time. Now, she smiles often, laughs a beautiful little laugh, sits in a Bumbo, finds me amusing (oh, God, thank you so much for that), and 'talks' a lot! And she's gotten adorably chubby! See for yourself.....


.....our little Evie, when Jeremiah left....



..and here she is now...





And Jack...well, in the past 2 months, he has been learning and saying a lot of new words, and has started stringing 3 and 4 words together to make little sentences. It amazes me. But other than, still the same happy, energetic, mischief-making little boy....






Kaiti has started taking tumbling classes since her Daddy left. She loves it! And she continues to come out of her shell more and more everyday.....we were out doing errands today, and she ran into friends from school at Wal Greens, the pumpkin patch, and Michael's. And instead of being shy and barely lifting her head, she ran over and started talking to them. Love my sweet girl!!





And then there is my little man! Since Daddy left, Tyler has traded his obsession with sharks for an obsession with dinosaurs. He has lost another tooth and talks about wanting to go fishing with his Dad more often. He is the man of the house when Daddy is gone, and he does a great job in his role!







I can't wait to have my handsome husband with us, being a part of our moments, making memories with us once again!! Happy Tuesday all!

----oh, one more quick thing. Amy, from The Idea Room, has been so sweet to feature 4 of her readers on her website! And yours truly happens to be one of those readers featured. So HOP ON OVER HERE and check her out......and while you're there, you can see 'the story of us' listed in the left hand column! There are a ton of great projects over there-- like her cinnamon swirl pancakes....I am making those bad boys for my hubby this weekend!!
