Sorry I didn't call you at 3:30am like I had wanted. I feel really bad but I turned off the alarm and immediately fell back asleep :(. Don't worry, I kicked myself for it hard in the morning. I woke up super tired though thanks to your wonderful son! (You know he's yours when he is frustrating me!) He hasn't fallen asleep before 1am since you left. He is definitely a Daddy's boy! He wants Daddy to tuck him in, Daddy to turn off the lights, Daddy to get him juice... I think so far he's adjusting well though, we've got us a strong little boy!
I also wanted to let you know that I barf at the slightest thought of you! :) No, not anything bad, only because I guess it's hard to stomach the thought of not seeing you for so long! Geeze babe! You're not even here to "dutch oven" me yet you still make me sick to my stomach!!
Ok, enough joking... I love you Honey and always will! You're forever my favorite!
The ceremony started about 1:45pm and only lasted about 4 minutes but I was glad to be there. After the ceremony we had another 20 minutes or so to visit, get our hugs and kisses in and say our "goodbyes". I didn't cry until I left again, I want him to see that I can be strong for him the same way he's being strong for Nathyn and I. Here's the pictures!

Nathyn laid down tonight and we went back and forth with the "Ni-night Bubba", "Ni-night Mommy". After he was done with me he said, "Ni-night Daddy, I Love You". We'll say goodnight to you every night. And always remember... You're my favorite. Goodnight baby.

I figured out recently that after 8 weeks he'll have his graduation from Basic. I thought that was all the way at the end of the 14 weeks but I was wrong. After the graduation he should get leave for the day to spend with his family, so for that I'm excited! I've never been to Missouri before! :)
Anyways, as far as this weekend goes!
- Saturday: We're having a family & friend get-together potluck for Terry's going-away 'slash' Nathyn's birthday party at Gibson Ranch. Terry wanted to do Nathyn's birthday early this year so that he's able to be there. We'll BBQ hotdogs and maybe even have a water balloon fight!
- Sunday: Raging Waters!! Oh my goodness, I haven't been in YEARS and definitely not since the remodel and turning into Raging Waters (it used to be Water World). Nathyn should have LOADS of fun here!
- Monday: I'm HOPING to find a babysitter (any volunteers? haha) because we have a little rafting trip planned. I know we are CRAZY for getting on the river on Memorial Day but no worries, we are NOT drinking and are VERY careful and responsible on the water.
Monday will be the last day I get to spend with Terry... Tuesday morning I get up and go to work, and by the time I get off he will have already left. Then I have Wednesday off so that I can go to his little "swearing-in" ceremony thing. I have NO idea what that's all about yet, I guess I'll figure it out on Wednesday. Then I go home, and he stays there again. He leaves at 3am Thursday morning.... I pray these last three days go very sloooowwlly....

For the first 10 months of his life, he stayed home with me every day while Daddy went to work. Then when I got my full-time job Terry adjusted his schedule and worked nights so he could be home with him all day, and Nathyn would be with me in the evenings. Now his Daddy is going away and he won't get to see him until September. And I'm supposed to drop him off at 7:30 in the morning, pick him up at 5:30 in the evening, take him home, feed him, bathe him, read a story or two and get him in bed by 8? That's only two and a half hours a day he'll get to spend with me, and there won't be his Daddy around until I get home. That's not fair! I mean, already when Terry drops me off in the morning he whines and says "No Mommy, stay here!". I feel like I'm not being the best Mom I can be.
This is the face I get when I get dropped off.. I want to be home with my baby...
