Our last week together has been bitter sweet.  Getting to spend time together is such a blessing, but with the thought of the eminent "good bye" coming, it was hard not to think about.  However, now that we've said "good bye" one last time, we only have 10 weeks until we are together as a family again (at least for another 3 or 4 years!).

The recap:

On Saturday we went to see our high school wrestle for the state championship.  When we walked into the gym the sound was undeniably loud and it scared Emmy at first.  Caleb was holding her and she immediately grabbed his jacket and hid under it.

Once she got use to the sound, she wanted to see what all the commotion was about.  Eventually, she got into the cheering and clapping.

She had once proud daddy that night even though our team lost the championship.  BOO!

On Valentine's Day, I woke up to a breakfast made for a queen!  Caleb made strawberry pancakes, cheesy eggs and bacon!  We had a great time eating our feast as a family.  
For lunch we met my mother in law at Chipotle (one of my favorite places).  We talked and laughed at how silly Emmy was acting.  Finally, we headed home for nap time.

Love my girl in pigtails and LOVE her big brown eyes!

On Wednesday, we dropped Emmy off with Ama to play outside...

And dance, so we could got to the Melting Pot for a kid free dinner.  

We have kind of started a Valentine's Day tradition of going to the Melting Pot.  It is something we both look forward to and get to spend time talking about anything we want without interruption.  

We spent the rest of our time saying good bye to family and friends and spending as much time together as possible.  I was truly spoiled having Caleb home for two weeks.  My back didn't hurt once since he was the one holding her 90% of the time and I got use to having another body heat source laying next to me in bed.  

I cannot wait for these 10 weeks to fly by so we can be together without doom of separation looming in the near future.  Until then, I'll be keeping myself busy with photography, nursing, working out, and being a mom!
