Patrick has officially been gone for 8 weeks. It has been a very long two months. I am so ready to see him and give him a great big hug. I can't believe we have 33 days left to go. Charles and Meredith start a count down tomorrow until we go get daddy. I can't wait to post a picture of them tearing up the count down footprints. Please continue to pray for Patrick and all the men and women recruits. This week is team week for Patrick.
Today is our sweet little girl's first birthday. It is so hard to believe it has been a year since she came into our family. Her smile just melts your heart. She has learned so many things recently. She pulls up on her own, can say hey, hi, mama, daddy, thanks, and uh oh. No one can make her laugh like her big brother. We just love her so much and are so happy that God picked us to be her mommy and daddy. This past Saturday we had a very tiny birthday party for our little princess.
I hope you all have a very happy day! My heart day I spent loving on my babies. My son was so proud of the gifts he picked out for me: A card, Dove chocolates, and flowers. It will be about 6 more weeks until I see my sweetie. He appreciates all your letters and prayers.
