Well another flew by, woohoo! We're about half(ish) ways done with this deployment! Things are going pretty well. Brady has now started telling me daily that he misses his daddy and asks when he'll be home, so that's tough, but otherwise things are going alright. The time is going by quickly, we are staying very busy, and we're trying to stay as positive as possible. There is a chance that Brian may have to deploy again a little over 2 months after he gets home again for about 100 days, so that's disheartening, but we're just going to try and take it one deployment at a time. (If you can hear that, that's me shaking my head, pouring a glass of wine.) But anyways, here's what we've been up to this week:
1. Playdates, playdates, playdates. And not just only for the kids, I've done some too! Craft and wine night with a friend counts as a playdate, right?! :)
Our MOPs table group had a playdate at the Omaha zoo where we got a little penguin lesson and got to watch them feed the penguins!
It was pretty cool!
I guess seeing all the fish the penguins ate made Brady hungry??
The best picture out of 20, sigh.
Playing with friends at Bounce U
Can you guess which gift is for who?? :)
3. Preparing for Winter. Blah! It's starting to get colder here and darker earlier and earlier. I had to go through their winter things and make sure we had heavy coats, boots, mittens, and hats. I know the first snowfall is just around the corner but I am so not ready for it.
Trying on their boots, pants optional.
4. Trying to get healthy. We've been alternating between sick and healthy for about the past 3 weeks. Right now I'm the only one that's sick and I hope it stays that way! I just can't seem to kick this bug. Staying up until 1 am watching Lifetime movies probably doesn't help it, no?
Getting a rare snuggle session in with my teething miss.
Don't worry, we're still doing that.
We drove 20 minutes to get Caribou, Mommy's favorite coffee, at the only location in Omaha, 20 minutes away. It was worth the cupcake mess, I think.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
