Time Away

This is the longest I have been away from the Baby since she's been born. I was lucky enough for her to come visit while I was in St Louis for a month but since there is direct flight to Ames, Iowa, I have been relegated to phone calls and FaceTime.

I called the other day to say hi to the Baby and it sounded like I was talking to a little girl - not a 2 and half year old. Her words are more pronounced and she answers questions with well thought out responses. It made me sad. Every day that I am away from her, I am missing every moment that she is growing up.

Maybe by the time I get back she will want to sleep in her own bed. I would be happy if she did but I have no complaints when she cuddles extremely close in the middle of the night. Anyways, the Baby is having a blast with her Nana which makes things a lot easier. She really is the Baby's best friend. Every time I talk to her she has to announce to me that she is at Nana's house. They were supposed to go to Florida this weekend to finally visit her great aunt - unfortunately Hurricane Issac wanted to change their plans. But we'll be in Florida soon.

I have another week in training and I finally get to come back. And then we'll be taking the Baby to her first camping trip. I don't know if she will love it or hate it; Bugs, dirt, and leaves - I think she will love it.
