Closing In

Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Finally, the end is near. Justin is closing in on his time at recruiting school and I couldn't be more excited to get my love back. In all honesty, the past month has gone by so incredibly fast. Having an infant and a toddler has definitely assisted with how quickly the time has gone by. I mean, some days, we wake up + then before I know it... I'm getting the girls ready for bed. We spend most of our days doing activities for both kids. Ava gets playdates, learning time, outdoor play, etc. Olivia gets bumbo seat time, floor mat time, and fresh air when we go for walks. Assisting in their growth is so much fun for me. I love being able to witness both of my children doing something new or learning something for the very first time. I think that's the part of leaving that is hardest for Justin. He has never been away from our babies this small (I've mentioned this before) and although facetime is a nice alternative, it's just not the same thing.

Olivia is growing so rapidly. I mean it. The months didn't go by nearly as quickly when Ava was in her infancy. She is nothing short of an amazing baby and we can't get enough of her. One thing is for sure, I am so looking forward to parting ways with these long military departures for a good while. I really am focused on all the positives that this new recruiting detail is going to provide us with.
