Ryan deployed.  Aidan was just a baby then.  I cannot believe how much she’s grown and changed since then.  When he left she was wearing 24 month clothes and size 3 shoes.  Now she’s wearing 3T & some 4Ts and size 6.5 and 7 shoes.  She was still using a paci (she called him “Baboo”) and no where near ready to potty train.  She was a baby when he left and he’ll come home to a little girl.

The barracks behind him are finished now and the building to their right is gone, new barracks have taken their place.

Who knows where the heck that sippy cup is now?

A few stolen moments, just minutes before Daddy left.

Mid-tour leave, November 2007

Yesterday as she turned 34 months old…


So much has changed and yet stayed the same.

We just got word on OCS classdates.  WOO HOO!  He starts in late summer (we know the date but I won’t be publishing it here).  We’re very excited for him to be starting on that path!
