I actually have a couple free minutes tonight. Ryan went to bed a little early and I was able to get a shower and fix my hair (which, by the way, I love having to take a shower and fix my hair at 9 p.m. so that in the morning it's all screwed up again). Ryan's 6 month appt is tomorrow. I'm very curious to find out how much my little guy is weighing these days and how long he is. He's already as tall as my brother's SIL's baby who is 6 weeks older than him and taller than my friend's baby who is 2 months older. His daddy is fairly tall though and there's tall genes on both sides of the family (Eric had a great uncle that was 7 ft). My dad was 6'2" and so the potential is there. I can't believe how quickly he's developing either. He is starting to scoot himself, he sits like a champ and today I was playing with him on the floor and he used my leg and pulled himself to his feet.

I'm so irritated. You would think that technology today would be a little more durable, but no. We were leaving my mom's this morning and I was carrying out the camcorder/camera bag. Well it wasn't closed, they fell out. I get home and find that the camcorder deleted everything off the disc that's in there. I had recorded everything Ryan's been doing since Eric left on there. I had also recorded Eric reading a bedtime story to Ryan that I've been playing for him. All gone now. It's so frustrating. However, since I can't do anything about it, I've been re-recording the things for Eric. Here's Ryan's 6 month picture and a picture of Ryan with his Uncle Matt.

I went into a Christian everything store yesterday with my sister to pick out my mom a birthday present (her birthday is the 31st) and the lady in there is the nicest lady I've ever met. I've known her forever and she used to work with my brother and adores him. I had Ryan and she held him while we looked around just adoring him. She told him he could stay and couldn't believe how laid back he was. Anyways, when we got up to the register she asked how my mom was doing and whatnot and then asked if Ryan had an uncle to spoil him. It breaks my heart cause you know most people ask if they have a grandpa to do the spoiling but she knew so rephrased the question. I sure miss my daddy. Well I guess I can quit rambling now. Keep a girl from the computer long enough and this is what happens lol. Sorry if I bored you.

Well I have to make this fast. Ryan's down for a nap and his naps don't last long, usually 15 mins tops and I've already spent about 10 of them. I'm tired, exhausted actually. We have 17 days left til we see Eric again. My sister, Ryan and I are going to fly out and see him graduate. I'm excited/nervous. I don't know about flying with a baby but it'll be ok. We've spent some time with my family but came home today. I don't want to get on their nerves ya know? Of course my mom just can't get enough of her little baby boy. He's getting so big. He'll be 6 months this coming week. Where has it gone? Well, speaking of the little guy, he's up. So, I'm off.

Sleep, please give me some sleep!

A lady I used to work with always quoted this verse when I was having a bad day: "This too shall pass". I've been saying that a lot this past week lol. One week down, 4 to go.

Eric's gone. He left yesterday morning. Ryan is already keeping me occupied. Although time's going by extremely slow. It's only been a day but it feels like a month already lol. Oh geez. Sometimes the life of a military wife just isn't all it's cracked up to be. That's alright though, Eric's definitely worth it :) I was planning on going to my mom's house but Ryan's in a terrible mood today (thank God for naps) so figured it best to stay home and deal with it here instead of there. With Eric gone the house is so super quiet. I'm kinda worried that Ryan will get scared of people lol. Of course I take him around people but at the house there's nobody but him and me. I taped Eric reading a bedtime story to Ryan so that I can play it for him so he doesn't forget his voice. Last night he woke up and wouldn't go back to sleep so I played it for him and his eyes got really wide and he smiled real big and started looking around for his daddy. It was so cute. He loves his daddy. Boy do I hope this time goes quickly.

Today is also six months since my daddy passed away. Half a year without the strongest most wonderful man I've ever met. Just doesn't seem possible. I don't want it to be possible. I still find myself waiting on him to come back or looking for him every time we go to mom's. I miss him terribly.

Eric, my sister, her bf, brother, sil and I went to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert on the 4th. It was awesome. I sure wish my dad would have been able to be there with us. He seen the originals 3 times when he was younger. Afterwards they had the most beautiful fireworks display I've ever seen. It was awesome. I'm definitely glad that we were able to go and that my wonderful mom offered to babysit for us so that we could. I'm very thankful for my family. My sister and mom left this morning. Eric, Ryan and I have 2 more full days together before he leaves for a month. I'm not looking forward to this, not one little bit.
And just because I'm in love with this little boy...
