Our 2 weeks with Daddy

Daddy finally came home for a long awaited visit. I can not tell you how wonderful it was to have him here. I felt complete again and was the happiest I've been in almost a year. We really didn't do too much. Just enjoyed each others company, went out to eat at all of Greg's favorite places, visited family and snuggled a lot. Now as you look through these pic's you need to play this song "All American Girl." Every time I hear it I think of Greg with his 3 little girls.

Here is Greg holding baby Julia for the very first time.

and he pretty much didn't stop holding her the whole time he was home.

Of course he also couldn't help but spend as much time as possible with all his little girls. Yes Julia is snuggled right into his side just sleeping away.

Greg pushing Layla on her big wheel.

He even taught Eva to ride her bike without training wheels. We are so proud of her.

Layla was sad about something and Greg was sympathising with her.

We also blessed Julia while Greg was home. Because of the short time that he was going to be here we decided to do it on a Saturday at our home with just family. It was such a nice relaxing day. Looking back I wish I would have done all my girls blessings this way.

And here is Julia giving Greg one of her big smiles.

The 2 weeks flew by and now Greg is on his way back to Iraq. But he is almost done. September is right around the corner and then My hubby will be back for good and our family will be whole again. I love him so much and I'm so thankful that even after all this time apart we are still just as close as ever. He truly is my best friend and the most wonderful Daddy.
