Elliot woke up from his morning nap yesterday to a pleasant surprise- Daddy had come home for lunch!
... and he was taking a nap, too!!
So he decided to cuddle up on the couch with him for awhile.
But soon it was time for him to go back to work.
Where did he go?
The thought that he might do this, look and wait and wonder where Daddy went and when he's coming back, breaks my heart into a million pieces. Before, when Aaron deployed, I only had to worry about myself. Now, I'm not the only one getting left behind.
... and let's not forget about THIS little guy, either. He won't even meet his father until he is probably 6+ months old!
You know what I'll miss the most? The simple things. Watching Aaron and Elliot cuddle and play and laugh together. Doing things as a family. Just being together, even if we aren't doing anything at all. Nothing makes me happier.
All the more reason to enjoy our last weeks, days, and minutes together! :)
