Another long time in between posts. I'm going 200 mph, and don't know where I'm going. Parker keeps me busy from the time I get home until the time I leave to take him to his grandmother's or his aunt. I guess this week has been especially rough. I began training my replacement at work, had military duty this weekend, took care of the yard yesterday evening (6:00 p.m. til 9:00 p.m.), and now I'm starting over again.
The worst thing of all that could have happened may happen after all. I found out this weekend that I will probably be deployed in December or January. I was stunned at first, then felt a great loss knowing that I may miss my son's first Christmas, and first B-day. Then I began to worry about how my wife and child would be able to make it with me being gone. Who will make sure that the bills are paid, how will she be able to work and care for Parker, what will happen to our house, among the many other things. I thought about it very hard and realized that God blessed us with Parker and anything like this is more of a challenge just to see how much I appreciate what he did for me. What I'm trying to say is that I must have faith that everything will be just fine.
Parker is doing fantastic. Without having a scale, I would have to say that he is easily over the 7 lb. mark. He has started to enjoy his baths, just doesn't like the getting out part.[:D] We increased his 11 p.m. feeding and he slept through the 2 a.m. feeding for the 1st time last night. I know that I have been promising everyone to post some new pics on his web page, but things have been a little crazy lately. I will get them on there before the weekend gets here. More updates soon.
