jayne with a sun screen greased mohawk ready to go swimming
we've been home in maryland the past week and a half sans steve. steve is in denmark for tryouts and we're hoping he'll make a team out there by the end of the summer. if he makes a team, jayne and i will join him at the end of August. we are keeping our fingers crossed. but whatever the outcome, we'll be happy to just be with him again. we sure miss him.
home has brought us some fun and not so fun events.
daily swimming at the pool. jayne can now swim alone with her floaties and loves to be chucked high and far (and i mean HIGH and faaaar) in the pool after which she'll pop up kicking and smiling back over to me. love it.
hanging out with family. jayne loves being around her aunts and uncles and papa and gigi. she goes crazy for elyse and we all realized that jayne would have loved an older sister. too bad thats not possible.
videochatting with daddy. we've been lucky enough to get to do this one to two times a day. although jayne's attention span is rather short, its still fun for dad to see his little girl (and a wifey to see her #1 man)
a night out with my sister and best friend to go see Inception. great movie just like everyone and their mom and dog said on facebook. although long i think i would see it again.
evening walk with jordan and jayne in the red wagon. jordan warming up to his little girl cousin (when we first got here he admitted to her being "scary")
not so fun---
a 5 min. (no exaggeration) thunderstorm resulting in a three day power outage. it wouldn't have been that bad if it wasn't a bagillion degrees in these parts. this actually ended up being a good thing though because we ended up sleeping over at my best friend ash's house who lives in the neighborhood and got to spend some quality time with her before she left to NH with her family (not to mention enjoy her completely generator-powered home)
missing steve. ok i know i've babbled and whined about this already. but any wife will admit its not fun nor easy being away from husband especially with a little one year old baby. i know others have it worse, but i feel i have the right to whine every once in a while, alright?
missing steve's family in utah (crystal, we miss you too but we get to see you in a week!). we have grown so close to steve's family and often see them on a day to day basis. i know they are missing jayne like crazy. we miss them too- A LOT.
and of course a rear view... how cute is that suit?
we leave for deep creek lake on saturday and will be there for three whole weeks. i can't wait to take jayne out on the boat and do all the fun things the lake has to offer. it will be especially fun to see all of my siblings and nephews at one point or another during that time. i think there is a week we will ALL be there. can't wait.
it is good to be home. but we sure miss home too. you know what i mean?
