A long awaited reunion

After a long 4 months Andrew has made it home safe and sound from his deployment. He arrived home on Saturday night and we greeted him at the airport along with about 12 of his coworkers and their families. It is wonderful having him home again. Abby was a bit shy with him the first night. This may have been due to the fact that he was gone for so long, or that he had shaved his head and it was past her bedtime. Probably a combination of it all. The shyness did not last very long. She has been attached to Daddy's hip ever since, she has even told me to go away! Its wonderful seeing her bond with her Daddy but I can't help but feel a little jealous. After all, I am the one who has been taking care of her for the past 4 months. Andrew has 2 weeks off before he has to go back to work and we are enjoying time as a family. We thought about going on a little mini-vacation but opted to stay home instead. Its nice being able to be home and just enjoy the day to day and this way Andrew is able to get a glimpse of what our life is like while he is at work! Thank you to everyone who helped us out, kept us company, and prayed for us while he was gone!
