Welcome To The World Macie Lynn

My friend/employer had her forth, yes forth, child on Tuesday at 5:55 a.m. This baby was "extra" special because after having three boys, they were really hoping for that girl, which they got! How exciting! Macie Lynn weight was 8lbs. 2oz. and I got to go up and see my first newborn, and it was a trip! It was just crazy to me to see such a small thing and hard to believe this baby was in her stomach...I don't know, but it just makes you amazed at the human body and birth in general. Anyways, both mom and baby are doing great and I can't wait to get back to work and experience this new journey of newborns. I hear they are pretty easy though, sleep, poop, sleep. So we will see! Congratulations!

Today is the day Lucas gets back from training in Las Vegas...not sure what time as they had to do some training on the way home. I'm going stir crazy since I have had the week off, and it being rainy and not much to will be a nice change again. =)

Another "Holiday" Spent Apart

Although yesterday was JUST Valentine's day, it is sad to think that we missed another "holiday" together...seems like we are getting pretty good at spending our days apart! =( He will be home Thursday and have a four day weekend, so we will make up for lost time and spend Valentines Day a little late. Even though it has been a week, I feel the same emotions felt during his deployment...hard to imagine we have to go through one more before he gets out and that is if he does. Spending time apart is getting harder for me as I feel I have given up enough time away from him...don't mean to sound selfish, just bitter maybe?!
Any who, it gives me something to look forward to during the week, Thursday his homecoming. Can't wait for him to be home for a while before heading off for a month in March. I'm just trying to enjoy the time I am allowed. =)

Gone Again?!

Lucas will be leaving for a week in a half of training on Monday. It is hard thinking about him being gone when it has only been just a short amount of time he has been home. And it only gets worse (well not THAT bad), but he leaves for over a month the first week in March...(sigh)! This is becoming harder and harder than expected...I just keep saying I've done 7 months, whats another month? No biggie right? I don't know...just sucks that he hasn't been home for that long and they are already taking him away from me! =( That's the life in the military though, no complaining, just need to suck it up and deal with the things you can't change.
