Could it really be happening?

Has it really been almost 6 months? Have we really gotten past Holidays, Birthdays, weekends, etc? It is amazing how certain nights or days just drag on and I just go through the motions, and other weeks seem to fly by!

I am so excited to see my family whole again, to see the boys laugh and smile in ways that haven't been heard or barely remembered. I can't wait to feel those strong arms around my waist and brush them off me while I am cooking dinner (just kidding:-). I can't wait for 3 or 5 o-clock to roll around and have some excitement about my husband coming home from work instead of sorrow knowing I have to face the evening myself.

There is lots to do! Now we do still have plenty of time, still counting weeks and not just days, but so much to do! Making the lists and crossing things off (even the smallest things). Gotta make my welcome home sign/banner and think about outfits for the boys. I already got my homecoming dress...nothing like a 9 month pregnant momma welcoming home a sexy sailor! HEHEHE. Anyways, just loving those thoughts of hope and anticipation on my mind and thought I would share them with you all!

Took these photos of the boys the other day and just love how wonderful they look, so soft yet so manly, such "out there/spacey" expressions, but so young and fresh. Love these two young "mikes" that keep me smiling!

SUCH wonderful news! i hope you enjoy the lead-up and anticipation for your man to come back...

Beautiful photographs of two gorgeous little men. I can't imagine what it must feel like waiting and anticipating your husband's return. I pray that the time flies by until then. I read your “our Faith” page of your blog, I love that you made that, it has inspired me to work on one too. You are such a beautiful person. All the best to you and yours and also on your pregnancy and delivery. God bless.
