Adam's Homecoming!!



Adam came home November 25th at 7am. That was as amazing as when Bayley was born!!! He got to fly off on a helo so we didn't have to sit and wait for the ship to come in. We were home napping by the time it docked : ) It was such a wonderful day. My Mom, Bayley and I woke up at 445am and headed off to Coronado. It was perfect timing, we got to the hanger bays and saw the helos fly over in formation, it was such a beautiful sight to see ( I knew he was in one of them)!!! They landed, taxied over and all 7 lined up. It seemed like it took forever for them to open the doors, but when they did we all went running out to our loved ones. I spotted him and with Bayley in my arms practically sprinted to him trying hard not to cry but tears welling up anyways. I thought I was dreaming, what an amazing kiss and embrace after 6 months!!! I was shaking I was so nervous/excited!!! We walked inside and I handed over Bayley to Adam. She was so good and actually slept thru the helicopters landing and everything. She did wake up for Daddy though, and all smiles. It was so cute, she just looked at him with the cutest little expression like "where have you been all this time?" She was so content and just stared at him the whole ride home. She was smiling and laughing for him too!!! She was so happy to see him even being so exhausted from me waking her up so early. My Mom drove us home and we took a nap, another nap, and then another nap. We were all so tired. I am so grateful he is home safe and sound, Bayley and Adam are like 2 peas in a pod. He is such an amazing Daddy/Husband. 6 months without the love of your life really puts things in perspective. I don't know how the 3 of us did it, but we made it through; stronger, wiser, even more in love than ever and grateful for every second together.

Yay!!!

Adam called me yesterday morning as the Reagan was pulling out of Hawaii, next stop SAN DIEGO!!!!! I was surprised to get a call from him because we had talked non stop the past 2 days and we said goodbye and SEE YOU SOON : ) He called because he found out that he was promoted to 2nd class!!!! He works SOOOO very hard and is so deserving!!! Good job sweetheart, we are so proud of you!!!!! I feel like a 6 year old waiting for Santa Claus, I'm so excited to see him!! 4 days OMG!!!! I will post lots of pics!!!

Merry-go-round


My Mom used to take me on this same carousel when I was little. She took us today and it was so fun!! We didn't remember it being such a long ride and I thought it felt faster. I think Bayley liked it though, she just looked around and didn't cry. When Daddy comes home we will all ride the choo choo train!!!

So precious!!


Today we went to Balboa park and we rode the merry go round and took some pictures in her pretty little dress Grandma got her. Luckily we are having a heat wave!! It has been 90 degrees the past couple days. I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving, it sure doesn't feel like it! Bayley was tired and teething but she was such a good girl, like always : )

5 Months old today!!

Happy 5 Months today Bayley, we love you SOOOOO much!!!! Bayley is about 14lbs, grabbing everything in sight, and teething like crazy!! She loves to play with her little toys, loves books and magazines, and loves watching Mommy eat. Solid foods in a month, I bet she's excited!!! She is the sweetest most perfect little baby and we are so grateful for her. She is learning new sounds and making some loud yells. She babbles before she goes to sleep and gets pretty feisty when she's hungry. Even being greatly sleep deprived, waking up and seeing her smile makes it all worth while and more. We are so excited to see Daddy, 10 days!!!!

Smile for the camera Bayley



I wish it was easier to capture this beautiful baby's smile on camera. She smiles all day long it seems like, but once I break out the camera she just stares at it like it's some alien going to snatch her up. I really have to distract her from looking at it, but once she sees the flash I usually end up with a disgruntled squinty face. These are the best ones lately. I am still working on tricks. If I don't use the flash, it's quite blurry. I guess I will have to take some outside in partial shade. Her smile is contagious and stronger than any amount of prozac a doctor could prescribe. One dose of Bayley and I'm cured of anything!!! She is such a sweetheart, we love her so much!!! I can't believe how fast she is growing!!! Can you see her dimple on her right cheek?? Just like her Daddy's

Teething??


I think little Bayley is teething. She has been knawing on her hands like crazy or anything else she can put in her mouth. She also is drooling so much I have to keep a bib on her or change her shirt every hour. I haven't felt any teeth yet but I have a feeling one is gonna pop up soon!!!

Uncle Aaron came to visit


It was so nice to finally meet Adam's brother, I hadn't met him and Adam and Aaron haven't seen each other in over 3 years!!! Adam and I will be going to Michigan for Christmas this year so they will get to see each other then. I was so glad he got to see Bayley and we got to hang out. Thanks for visiting us Uncle Aaron!!!

Bayley's first Halloween

Bayley was a pumpkin for Halloween 2008. Chara and my Mom came over and we carved pumpkins and made tacos and ice cream sundaes. It was a fun night and we even got to see Daddy on the computer!!! He got to see Bayley too, that was the highlight of our day for sure. He's almost home!!!! He is in Singapore right now and the next stop is the U.S.!!!! The pumpkin with the glasses is one I carved and it's supposed to be him lol. The other one is a mouse that Auntie chara carved, so cute!!
