Dear Daddy

If you haven't noticed, there has been a drastic decline of dear daddy posts, mostly because daddy, mommy, and baby are all together now...one big happy family. 

Okay, so not a big family, and not always a happy family...but definitely a family.  The three of us are fluctuating between loving and driving each other crazy, baby is growing up way to fast before our eyes, mommy started a full time job, and all the while still in a FOREIGN country. 

If you couldn’t tell by the caps, I still am not fond of this place.  In fact, I quite detest it.  But such is the life of an Army wife, moving and living where the Army says.  So I got a job to stay busy and bring in a little extra cash.  I miss baby every second of the day I’m away from her, but you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

As for baby, she is now five months old.  We still haven’t migrated to any foods other than her usual milkies, but that will happen as soon as she can sit up on her own.  Baby has started to crawl, rolls over the second we put her down on the floor, is making all kinds of vocal sounds, and sometimes sleeps through the night.  She is in-between three and nine month clothing.  

I’m staying focused on enjoying every minute with Baby and spending quality time with Hubby. 

Travel – blah. 

Work is just something to do, although I go to work and then have to find things to pass the time there. 

Family – I miss!

Cooking – sort of.

Exercise – it’s too cold outside.

Sewing – I’d rather spend the time with Baby or Hubby.

And there you have it folks.  The “glorious” life of this Army wife.

Dear Daddy

A whole bunch of new things have happened since I last wrote. First of all, I miss you sooo much and talking to you on FaceTime is my favorite part of the day.

But back to my latest developments. I found my feet just a few days before we all left Philly, then that Sunday I rolled over for the first time, although Mommy missed it. The very next day when Mommy and I were with Nana and everyone else making cookies, I started rolling over, but this time I did it more than once and everybody saw and was cheering me on. Now I'm a rolling champ. I do it whenever I laying down.

I've also started teething. Nobody believed Mommy when she said I've been my clingy than usual, and instead of just sucking on my thumb, I'm chewing on both my fists and soaking my onesies with drool. Both Nana and Great Granny agreed that I'm teething. You and Mommy are going to have fun with this phase!!!

Mommy and I finally got my Visa application completed. Talk about a huge ordeal! The Airforce guy was pretty stupid and it was Mommy that kept having to tell him what to do. Hopefully the guy's stupidity doesn't mess anything up and cause my Visa to be held up. I want to be with you so bad!

Love you Daddy. Sending you lots of hugs and milky kisses.

Dear Daddy

On the scale of binkies, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the best...spending time with you this past week definitely rates at 10 binks!  I can't help but smile every time I see you and having you feed me and hold me, makes me the happiest baby girl in the world.

Seriously, who could have it any better than me! I get Mommy all to myself during the day, I get to see you at lunch time, and then I get attention from both of you in the evening. Not to mention, having you around to feed me in the middle of the night is awesome. When it's just Mommy, she gets pretty sleepy and doesn't talk to me and entertain me like you do.

Plus, you are quickly becoming an Allstar at knowing how I like things and how to keep me happy. Way to go Daddy!

I can't wait to spend even more time with you. I love you.

Dear Daddy

I've gained a whole half a pound! Plus I'm wearing my very first 6 month onesie. It's a little big, but at least my legs and feet aren't squished.

Right now I'm talking to fast for Mommy to type everything I'm saying, so I giver her a break every few minutes my stopping and eating my hands.

Now I have the hiccups. I ALWAYS seem to get the hiccups and it makes me mad.

Whenever I'm drinking my milkies and Mommy makes me stop to burp me, I squeal like a little piggy. I'm not a fan of being burped, unless I have something to watch.

Can't wait to see you soon!!!! Love you lots and lots.

Dear Daddy

Mommy and I "celebrated" my turning 3 months old today by going out and applying for my very own passport! Mommy says it was anything but a celebration for her, but I had a blast because at Mommy's 2nd attempt to submit my application, Nana came along. I got to eat milkies and then promptly filled my diaper with stinks while entertaining Mommy and Nana will my faces. Of course I got bored after that and Nana took me out to the car while Mommy finished up.

I'm not suppose to tell you, but I'm sleeping in my swing again tonight. Mommy says she'll put me jn my cosleeper tomorrow night.

So far I still weight 12 lbs, although I'm starting to grow out of the smaller 3 month clothes. It's mostly onesies with small footies. I don't like having my toes all scrunched up.

Love you Daddy. So excited to see you soon!

Dear Daddy

I wore myself out from all the excitement Thanksgiving day that I slept 7 straight hours in my swing!
After sleeping that long, Mommy was sure that I was going to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for the rest of the night/morning. But I drank half of my usual amount of milk, and fell asleep for another 3 hours.

Mommy and I joined Nana and Aunt M while they did some black Friday shopping. I promptly got tired of all the lights and noise, but feel asleep after crying for only a minute or two. Mommy was terrified that she was going to have a Thanksgiving day screaming episode on her hands once again, but I was cool as a cucumber after I had that short nap in her arms while shopping.

Following shopping, we went to visit Uncle C's family and I put on the charm.

I fell asleep when we went to Aunt M and Uncle C's house to help put up Christmas decorations. I slept in Uncle C's office the whole time Mommy, Nana and Aunt M were decorating. Mommy had a blast. She was soooo happy that I did so well while we were out. But then again, Aunt M and Nana know me and what I like.

I love you Daddy. It won't be to long before I can see you again!!! Hugs and milky kisses.

Dear Daddy

Mommy and I have been feeling a little blah. I have a yucky cold and Mommy is trying to deal with pain, vomiting, and asthma. We are quite a pitiful pair! But we also make for perfect sleeping buddies. We sleep a lot...day and night.

Despite my cold, I'm eating like a champ. Anywhere from 4-6 ounces.

Development wise, there is nothing really new that I've been doing lately besides continuing to grow big and strong!

Love you Daddy. We miss you soooooo much.
