Why does time fly when you don't want it to? Two weeks is not a very long time in the grand scheme of things, is it? Most of Nathan's time home was spent doing this:
Holding Emma. Who can blame him?
She is very holdable.
He delivered a package for a friend who is in Iraq. It's for the young man's girlfriend. I bet she was surprised! (Her dad answered the door. I'm sure he was wondering why someone was standing at the gate taking photos.)
He opened Christmas presents, giving a "thumbs up" to Aunt Gayle's superb taste in t-shirts. He also got a booboo on his forehead. Don't ask. It really shows up with his "I have to go back to the Army" hair cut.
But mostly he just loved this baby, giving her all of the kisses and hugs he could fit in in a short period of time.
And she loved every minute of it.
Nine months. That's how long we will wait for him to come back. It had better fly.
