Bella ran toward him then turned around and ran to me. I picked her up and went toward John...she was pretty shy the first few minutes. Unsure of what to do with this guy and his funny hair...but she quickly warmed up to him.
I, of course had to get in my kisses too.
He slept most of that first day. It had something to do with that up for 56 hours thing.
I call our second day the "adjustment day..." Where we worked out expectations and planned some of his RnR time.
We also went to the PX... He's been showing off his muscles all day.
Not to be outdone by her dad...Actually...this little girl has been shadowing him in every sense of the word. What dad does...she does.
Bella, of course...our "brilliant child." Love her.
Maddie brought home some cooties from school the week before an unfortunately they are making the rounds...So, she was sick when he arrived...Bella caught it on day 2 and I caught it on day 3. So far he's been spared the snotty nosed chest coughing...but seriously...of all the stinky luck - we manage to not get sick for 8 full months and then on the 2 weeks that he's here we get this..
Regardless...as I was telling some friends...I'm happy to pick up his dirty socks and hang up his towels and clean up around him. I've just missed having him around. Its been wonderful to hear his voice...listen to him sleeping next to me...watch the girls climb all over him begging for the tickle game.
Nothing like having daddy home.
