2 Years

I can't believe it has been 2 years since we made the move to Polk. I remember the day at Bliss when we found out that Kyle's unit would be shutting down, we knew we didn't want to stay there so it was a mad dash to figure out our next move. Thankfully, Kyle was given an opportunity by a former boss and that put Polk in our future. We sold our house in El Paso and 30 days later we were on the road to Louisiana. Of course the thought of having my family only 7 hours away made the decision that much sweeter.

I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. Had Kyle's unit not shut down we would not have moved to Louisiana. Had we not moved to Louisiana Kyle would have likely not been given the referral to the fertility doctor in San Antonio. Had he not gone there and had surgery we would not have our daughter right now. 

I couldn't imagine not having this sweet little face to look at everyday.


Even when she is angry at me for making her sit up lol.


Every now and then the Army does something right! :) This was definitely one of this times.

  2. Ahhhh the Army. There's always a silver lining to 99% of the stuff they put us through, I've decided. And that little girl? She's a diamond lining :)

  6. How cruel of you to make poor Emmy sit up ;) I am a total control freak so I'm not sure how I'd cope with army life to be honest, but you do it with grace and it looks like things have definitely worked out well for you.
