We miss you, Daddy.

I wanted to share with you-I have been a bit preoccupied lately. . .Some of you may already know this, but I am guessing most of you do not.

My husband left April 30th, for Iraq. He is not enlisted, but is working with an Army unit to catch bad guys. I am not going to go into alot of detail-I know that this isn’t primarily a personal blog. He is going to be gone for 1 year, with two brief visits (hopefully at home) during that time. If you think of it, maybe you can say a prayer for his safe return?

I wanted you to understand when I refer to him as being gone, or talk about missing him occasionally.

Like right now.

Besides, it is Father’s Day! I have to talk about Daddy :) And look at our babies, too, while I am oversharing! Aren’t they the sweetest ever!

Avery just turned one! Doesn’t it seem like I just had her yesterday?!?!

Okay, so maybe a little earlier than yesterday. . .but still!

Happy Father’s Day to all the Daddies out there. . .For those who know someone who has a Daddy overseas, give them a hug today.

Gosh - I can't even imagine how hard it must be to have your hubby gone, with little ones at home - best wishes for his safe return. Your girls are adorable - where did you get their dresses? too cute!!

Thank you for the sacrifices your family is making to help make this world a better place.

I can't believe your baby is one! It DOES seem like yesterday that I kept checking and checking and checking for a new blog post after she was born. LOL!

I will pray for you while your hubby is gone.

Awww...I can't imagin, the missing part and the worry. I am sure he will be home safe before you know it.
My nephew is due to go to Afghanistan in January with the Canadian Troops and he has a new hard.

You should be proud of the miracles you brought into this world.
