Magic Moments


Whenever I need a “pick me up”, I look through all the old photos I’ve put up on my Facebook page, usually ones of Abbie when she was younger.

Last night I was going through one of my old albums and came across this photo.  I took it right after Abbie walked to Mark by herself for the first time, and I just love Mark’s expression in this photo.  He’s such a proud dad and you can practically see the love he has for his little girl pouring through his eyes.  I’m so glad he was around and able to be there the day she started walking by herself, and not deployed or on a TDY.  We lucked out.

And just for fun, here’s another one.  Mark was making a monkey noise and Abbie obviously thought he was hilarious.  This photo captures their relationship perfectly.

I can’t wait for him to get his butt home so I can capture more memories on film.  (And no, he doesn’t live in his flight suit.  Well I guess technically right now he does, and he wears it 90% of the time normally anyway since he’s always at work, or getting home from work, or leaving for work.  But he does have normal clothes too.  I promise.)
