It’s pretty obvious that I recently lost all motivation to post. Zach left Afghanistan a couple of weeks ago and since I’ve been able to talk to him more often, I haven’t spent much time organizing/thinking of things to post. As far as my 28 day challenge goes, I did start and finish organizing the master closet (which I’m sure Zach will appreciate once he’s home) and I’m halfway done cleaning both of our cars. With the 90+ degree weather we’ve had, we haven’t been spending much time outside.
Now, for the exciting news of the
day week year Zach will be HOME within the next 2 weeks!!!! He’s not having surgery and is in Kentucky right now, waiting to fly home. 🙂 He has internet access there, so we’ve been able to skype (and see each other clearly for the first time in 6 months!). Irelyn was confused & happy to see him clearly for the first time on skype yesterday. I hope this helps these last 2 weeks pass quickly…although now that we’ve made it through 9 months of this deployment, 2 weeks seems like nothing.
The three of us went to the park this morning (at 7:30am!) and took some fun pictures this afternoon.
Irelyn loved riding in the stroller and Kaden had so much fun playing at the park. Irelyn ended up needing an outfit change after spitting up all over her clothes and needing her dirty diaper changed on the picnic table five minutes after we got there. We managed to make it home before it got to 80 degrees though!
We decided to have a mini photo shoot in our living room today – of course with a red, white & blue theme! Irelyn had fun trying to eat the streamers and Kaden tried rolling them into the flowers I made a few weeks ago. I’m pretty happy with the pictures we did get. 🙂
And here are a few pictures of the past week (plus one of the hubby 🙂 ). I came across an $80 Baby Einstein jumper I liked for Irelyn and was able to find the exact one at a garage sale for $15! She’s loved sitting in that and her bumbo while watching Kaden play. Kaden has been learning so many new things lately and he’s so excited for Zach to come home in a couple weeks (I’ll probably have an entire post of pictures once he’s here!).
That’s all for tonight. I’ll work harder on posting regularly again… at least until Zach is home. 🙂
