10 days and counting..

Well, I cannot believe we are under two weeks until Weston is home. WOOHOO! I cannot wait. Wyatt has no idea what is coming, but he does know who Daddy is. Last week we were on post, and a soldier in a uniform passed us, and Wyatt followed him with his eyes. Today, while we were playing he asked to get up on my lap. I picked him up and he saw Weston's picture on the computer, and said, "Dada". Next weekend will be amazing.

I am also amazed at the promises of God in my life. He doesn't promise it will be easy, but he does promise he will be right there with us. That he did. Without my God, I never would have gotten through this, nor come out a better woman. Because of this I am a better woman, wife, and mother. It can be hard to choose to do it God's way, but it is beyond incredible when we do.

We are slowing gettin ready for Weston to be back. I have so much to do, and can't wait until next week when I can actually start preparing. I want to have some small things done for him for when he gets here.

My friend Amanda and her husband Brian welcomed their first baby boy this week. Jackson is here, and Wyatt finally has a little friend, and I have baby fever...oh, wait..I always have baby fever. I am thankful God blessed me with such wonderful friends.

Continue to pray for my Grampa Sis. He has been having some seizures and they aren't sure why. He is an amazing man and I know he is on this earth for something special. But, prayers are never wasted.

We love you all, and I will catch up with more tomorrow~
