Daddy's Home!

After 8 LONG months, he's home! My husband, best friend, love of my life! Ahh I can finally breathe again!

Mason is adjusting so well to having him home. Of course we were worried Mason wouldn't know who his Daddy was, but he seemed to know him the moment we ran up to him. Homecoming wasn't quite what I expected. We were at another squadron's hangar with a few other wives and families. It was very hot and very windy. When we saw the plane coming, everyone ran out to see it. As they began to walk off the plane we moved in closer. I darted my eyes back and forth looking for him. Finally I found him and Mason and I walked fast towards him. Josh squatted down and met Mason with a big hug. My heart filled with joy and relief. He's home! Our family is complete!

I'm back!! I think....

I had so many good intentions for the blog and honestly I'm not sure why I haven't kept up with it. I've been living in Charlotte, NC since my husband left for deployment and now it is time to go back to Cali. I officially only have days left in Charlotte. It is a very bittersweet feeling. Being with my family has helped me through all this more than I ever thought. The bond that has grown between Mason and his grandparents and uncles makes me smile everyday. I have always known the power and love of having a great family around and I am so grateful Mason has gotten to experience it even if it is for just a little while.

Soon begins the journey back to California. In a car, with a baby, and two dogs. Luckily my mother-in-law and brother-in-law are riding along to help me.

We're back!
