Some Thoughts

I've almost given up all interest in blogging. I don't know why, because I love to write. But I do feel like every ounce if creativity left me in December when my better half boarded the plane for deployment. Now? I feel like I have to scrape my brain for blogging topics.

Oh well. I'll soldier on.

Ad seems to get "easier" with each passing day. I love it. She now eats baby food, "plays" with me, and is (maybe?) making the transition a from 4 naps to 3 naps per day. Which means an earlier bed time! 730 is now when we hit the hay. Yes. WE. We still bedshare and I love it more than ever. I'm completely unaware of how often she eats at night, but she most definitely eats multiple times still. Fine by me, because I don't really wake up to notice! So once she drifts off to sleep, it's Mommy Time:

(cue transition)

Which brings me to now! I'm blogging on our new iPad. We aren't the type to run out and get the latest technology. But this? SO AMAZING! we got it to Skype with Mark, and it has proven to be a very special tool for us. Now, he can travel with us to the table to watch her eat; the nursery to watch her play; outside to watch her swing. I love it.

We are almost to the 2-month mark. I feel like it will never end, though a small bit of my optimistic side is hopeful that these last 9 weeks will go quicker. I can't imaagine him coming home. Seriously, WHAT is it like to have a partner in parenting?!? It's been so long since I've had a hug or a cuddle or a hand to hold. But it's been even harder for my husband. I know he would give anything to kiss Adsalyn just once.

Did I mention thaf we now have a home? No? Well, oops! We do! I've faxed lots and lots of papers and already have our address. I am extremely Excited for us to live together again. Holy crap I want to wash my husband's underwear, cook him spaghetti, and pick up his green military socks. I am beyond thrilled to resume my duties as his Queen Bee!!!

I'm reading through the book of Exodus now on this nifty little iPad app of mine. Too cool.

I think that's all for today.


  1. I quit blogging when Chris was in BMT, and practically for a LONG time after that. I never ever thought I'd get back into it, but I have! Yay! Sooo I hope your inspiration comes back when Mark does. :) I can't wait to hear about all your adventures as a family again! AND YOU HAVE A HOME??!!! Ohhh, give me details, pretty pretty please!!

  2. Yay about the new house! On base or no?
