"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground."
We are running out of time..
Now that we have baby Adalyn, time flies by. The last month has pretty much all ran together. Not only am I sad that my baby girl is growing up so fast, but that just means that deployment is coming just as fast..
I have pretty much been ignoring the fact that my husband is getting deployed. up until about a week ago that is. It’s starting to become reality and it scares me more than anything.
Now that we are actually talking about deployment and what comes with it, it’s so hard to not break down every time it’s mentioned.
In September, I won’t have my husband and best friend. If that isn’t hard enough, my baby girl won’t have her daddy. Quite honestly, that part scares me the most.. The fact that he will miss her first Halloween, Christmas, and birthday kills me. He will miss her first steps, and miss her first words.. It breaks my heart even thinking about it..
I know that those 9 months that he is deployed will be hard for me. No doubt about that. I will be raising out daughter alone for a while.. But as hard as it will be for me, it will be even harder for him. I will at least have our girl, and family to help. He won’t have that..
This is going to be the hardest year of our life together so far. Im honestly not looking forward to it. But we will get through it. With how much Adalyn and I love him, we can get through anything. I just know it.
It’s crazy to think that just 9 months ago, my only concern was myself. I had only myself to think about, and only myself to make decisions for. But now 9 months later, I am married and am going to have a baby girl any day. It’s almost unreal. These past months I have grown up so much, and learned more than I could even imagine. I can’t wait to see what else I learn in the years to come. I am so happy with how everything is turning out for my little family. I am even more happy that I ended up falling in love with such a terrific man. My husband takes such good care of us and that makes me so much more excited for us to have our baby girl. I just know that he will be such an amazing dad. I can’t wait to start this next chapter of life with him and our baby!
