50 Days...

I just realized that my husband will be home in 50 Days!
This has been such a bittersweet year. When all is said and done, it will have been the longest and hardest 365 days of my life- but over the past year were some of the happiest days I'll ever know. The only thing that could have made those moments sweeter would have been having my husband by my side to watch our son grow and change. He has missed SO much- Elliot's first smile, laugh, tooth... and many, many more things. When he left, Elliot was a sickly, helpless newborn who demanded to be held 24/7, had a constantly upset tummy, and cried... A LOT. Now, he is a smiley, giggly, playful, active, happy little boy who hardly cries at all. He has also DOUBLED in weight since Aaron held him last.
Oh, my husband is in for quite the surprise!


  1. This post makes me happy. I can't imagine being separated so long, and not being able to share the first few months together. You guys are seriously my heros.

  2. yay!! so awesome! i'm happy taht you will have your man soon! :)

    i totally know what you mean about him missing things... i know that everything will be good soon keep your chin up!

  3. Awww.... your son is beautiful. You are such a strong woman, because I don't know how i would be if my husband was gone for that long. I mean, he leaves on business trips for a few days at a time, but that's just about all I could handle. I truly admire women like you.

    When you have a chance, please come join us at voiceBoks - The Voice of Motherhood where you can enter your site's info in the various categories of our directory along with a chance to meet a great group of women who truly WILL follow you back and keep revisiting.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  4. How exciting for your husband to come home and see his family - especially to see how much Elliot has changed since he was home last!! :)
    (p.s. I wanted to ask you what kind of camera you used by the way since you mentioned the light scoop on my blog - which is the best thing ever - can't wait to get it!!!)
