He's Home!!!

Well, for 2 weeks that is.

I spent the days before Caleb's leave "nesting."  I cleaned like crazy!!!  Even though I know Caleb wouldn't really notice or care, it makes me feel like I don't have things I need to do while he is here.  I'm glad I did.  

He was supposed to arrive at 4:30, but I got a message around noon saying he would be here in two hours.  "Crap!" I though!  I hadn't showered and Emmy had not napped yet, but I did what army wives do best and went with the flow.  

We walked through the doors of the airport about 5 minutes before he showed up.  All morning I had been telling Emmy that we were going to see daddy today, but don't know if she really understood.  Well, as soon as she spotted Caleb, she started running toward him and I just let her go....  Right through the security check point.  However, before she got to him, sirens and lights started going off and she got scared, turned around, and ran back to me.  Poor girl!  

She didn't stay scared long.  I was so nervous about how the first few moments would be when she saw him, but she went right to him and didn't let go!  

Now, we have a lot of catching up to do!!!


  1. I'm a new follower from Ashley's blog. I saw that you are a military wife, and I'm also a military wife :)

    YAY for your man being home! That has to be the greatest feeling.

  2. celebrating with you all! i can't image how hard it's been and how sweet the reunion was! enjoy your time together! we're praying for you (esp. when those 2 weeks are over!)

  3. I just teared up- Emma's immediate reaction to go running to him just got me. You never know what toddlers will do, especially when it's someone they haven't seen in a while... but she knew her daddy. Hope you have a wonderful two weeks soaking each other up!

  4. Stupid auto-correct... *Emmy's

  5. So happy for your time with your husband! I tried so hard to keep the tears back while reading this at work. What a blessing!

  6. I just cried reading this. I am so happy for you guys and can't wait until he's home for good!! That picture of Emmy holding on to her Daddy is adorable!! Enjoy your two weeks!!!!

  7. I have literallly spent the better half of my week staring at these pictures on facebook. I have thought of you guys every day and all the fun stuff you must be doing. So happy for you and that Caleb's finally home for a little bit. Hope you're having an awesome weekend with your WHOLE family! love you lots!!!
