I'm doing my best to adjust now that Johnathon has left, but I guess it will always be a work in progress. I don't think anyone could ever like having their husband away for so long, but I have somehow learned to accept it. It is our life and this is how it must me. I am needed here and as hard as it is, I couldn't live with myself if I wasn't here at this moment. My light at the end of the tunnel is knowing that as soon as this deployment is over we will be a family again.
Madelynn had a rough time falling asleep last night. On my last attempt to lay her down, I quietly gave her a kiss and shut the door. A few minutes later I decided I should crack the door and check on her...now that she knows how to climb out of her crib. That when I heard the snoring as the door wouldn't open more than an inch. My baby had climbed out of her crib and fallen asleep in front of the door. I tried to snooze a little on the couch, but at 2am I woke her up and took her to bed with me. Getting her back on track will be a challenge, but nothing I can't handle.
It was a fabulous 8:30am wake-up this morning. I loved it!! We had breakfast and even got to visit with Aunt Becka and Uncle Josh before they headed home.
I work in an hour and the girls are headed to my mom's house for the afternoon. They really look forward to that and their time with their cousins!!
I know, I'm a total slacker with taking pictures lately. It is what it is. :)
