Finally! Zach got home around 3am on Friday morning. He will be home for 10 days before he has to go back to Kentucky for a few days, but that’s nothing compared to the 10 months he’s been gone. He got to meet Irelyn around 3:30am on Friday – we checked on her while she was sleeping and she woke up. She spent an hour awake after that and was all smiles. 🙂 When Kaden woke up Friday morning I told him there was a surprise in my room for him…he came running out with a huge smile on his face when he saw that Zach was his surprise! Here are a few pictures of the three of them.
Of course, the kids had to have special outfits to wear. I had planned on that being a surprise for Zach at the airport, but since plans changed and he came home in the middle of the night, we just had a photo shoot in the living room [it only took Irelyn 10 minutes of wearing the onesie to spit up all over it anyway]. I ordered Irelyn’s skirt & bow on etsy and I made the shirts they’re wearing.
We’ve been pretty busy the past few days with visiting family, church and transitioning Irelyn to her crib (that was one huge failure from my 28 day challenge…). The first night she slept in her crib, we were up every two hours – but last night she only woke up one extra time! The past couple of days have been amazing and has made the past 10 months worth the wait. Tonight’s post is going to be short, but we’re taking the kids to the park in the morning and we’ll be doing Irelyn’s 4 month picture tomorrow, so I’ll post those soon!
Here are a few more pictures from today 🙂
