Getting Close

I am starting to get really excited about Chris coming home!! All I keep thinking about is how AMAZING it is going to be to see him for the first time. As of today, Chris has been gone for 24 1/2 weeks, 170.85 days, 4,100 hours, 246,020 minutes, and 14,761,212 seconds (but who's counting really)?! So, today.....as I was trying to contain my excitement, I decided to reminisce and look back at the pictures from when he got home the last time from Iraq. I thought I would share those with you ..... I keep thinking how awesome this time around is going to be, too, b/c not only will Chris be coming home and seeing me, but......



he will also get to see this precious, little face. I mean, Jake WAS only 2 months old when Chris left and was just starting to smile ....now, Jake is cutting 2 bottom teeth, is scooting all over the place, blows raspberries with the best of them.....and says DADA constantly :-) So, I'm really looking forward to seeing Chris myself, and am also SO EXCITED for Chris and Jake to see each other, too!! :-) I wish I could go to bed tonight and wake up.....a few weeks from now ;-)
