12 Weeks, but who is counting???

I was thinking yesterday that it really isn't that long before Harrison and I leave from Spain. It's so bitter sweet. I can't wait to go to Alabama. I miss so many people from there and I can't wait until I can go home, relax, and Harrison can meet more people. It's sad, but there are so many important people in my life that Harrison has never met. At the same time, we are leaving behind Ben who will be here for another month and a half after we leave. Harrison will definitely miss his dada!!! Also, we are leaving Harrison's birthplace and so many great people we have met while living here. It's sad to think many of these people we will never see again, but I'm sure some we will! I can't wait to see what the next 3 years in Virginia brings a job (hopefully, but not looking promising), MAYBE another baby, deployment (which won't be fun), and hopefully more great friends and definitely many many more memories! Love to all!

Harrison walking

I know I have a lot to catch up on. It's been a while since I've posted anything on here. Thanksgiving was eventful! Ben was put in the hospital the night before. He had an abcess on his tonsil that caused major infection. Harrison had to have his first sleepover and he did great. He spent the night with the little guy that I keep during the day. So thankful for friends here that we can rely on just like family! Ben finally got out of the hospital the Monday after Thanksgiving. His antibiotics finally kicked in after 36 hours. It was a long couple of days! Those of you that live close to your mommas just don't realize how good you have it! Don't ever take your momma for granted!!! Ben's parents were here for the month of December. We had a good time with them. They were here for Harrison's birthday and then for Christmas too! Yes, my baby is 1 now. So hard to believe. He is a toddler now instead of a baby :(! He is so much like Ben. He is walking now, which there's a video of him walking. Now it is 2010 already. There is so much change that will take place in our family this year including moving back to the states. We are so ready! I've found us a house in Yorktown and now I just have to find a job. Looks like it's not the best time to be looking for a job, but hopefully I'll find something! Hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2010 and I can't wait to be closer to everyone. I miss everyone so much! Love to all!
