deployment: 5 1/2 weeks down

over a month in! i feel surprisingly awesome! i feel like i can sort of give my heart a rest from the up and down, the in and out, the constant roller coaster. yes my husband is gone and yes i miss him, all day every day. but we're in a routine now. we're counting down to an exciting day; the light at the end of the tunnel grows closer and closer. i miss him, but i feel ok.

avery misses her dad a lot. she talks about him every day, and gets disappointed if she doesn't get to talk to him/skype him. she reminisces, and talks about things she wants to do with him when he gets home. sometimes she has trouble sleeping, i think this is deployment-related. she'll wake up for no apparent reason, or not want to go to bed. but i think she's happy. she's enjoying visiting with our family and getting some extra attention.

brooklynn is getting big! she's braver now, i think she'll be walking any day. she reminds me so much of her daddy, such a little snuggle bug.

justin is doing well. he misses us, but he's staying busy with his own routine as well. for now things are pretty quiet, so that makes me feel good.

so we're just staying busy! enjoying our family and looking forward to the day my sweetheart comes back to me.
