about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

It's Friday!!

I now feel comfortable saying that Maggie is over her sickness! I would describe her current condition as mostly lethargic, but with a side of hyper. She has absolutely no appetite and little energy. She has been able to go to preschool and we went to Awana with no trouble, but she was very tired after the activity and has been taking a daily nap. Cousin Callie had the same bug last week and it has taken her quite a while to get back to normal too. As for the hyper part, Maggie has periods of extreme energy! I'll be thankful when she is back to her normal self.

Ellie is having trouble with teething and a little cold. Teething + Cold = Fussy and Snotty Ellie. Ellie has quite a surprise for her Daddy! Not only did she turn 18 months old (on December 6) while he was gone, but her vocabulary has grown quite a bit. It has been hard to tell Big Daddy about the new things that she's saying and doing. They really do change so much at this age.

Both girls (or is that all of us girls?) are missing Big Daddy...a lot. He should be home very early Saturday morning. I'd appreciate your prayers for his safe travel. He hasn't been in Georgia this week, so he'll be on the road a really long time Friday and into Saturday. The 12 days away from him have gone much better than I could have anticipated. Both girls have handled things well. Maggie had a hard time after that first Skype, but other than that she's only said, "but I just miss my Daddy so much" a few times a day. She has also said "Georgia is just too far away" and "I just think I need to go to Georgia" quite a bit. Since she was away from her Daddy for 13 days when he was in Italy, I have reminded her that she's been away from him longer than 12 days before. Because she has. Why yes, Georgia is on our minds!

And on the oh-it's-so-hard-to-be-away-from-each-other side of things. Please pray that we won't have to do this for too long. Please. Pretty please.
