I left for deployment when my wife, Ashley, was about 8 and half weeks into her pregnancy. It’s been tough but we’ve held on and finally together again. She was full term as of January 11th and our baby is due February 1st. At this point, even if our baby, Leala, decides to come early she’d be fully developed. I can’t wait to meet her!
Let me show you some pictures!
Here’s her at 8 and half weeks when I left:
And here’s her last week at 36 weeks (2 weeks after I got back):
My baby girl is get’n big! It’s crazy feeling and seeing her kick my hand or just try to push out. I’m a new dad and I hope to join the many great fathers out there.
So how many guns do you guys buy when you had a girl? I’m thinking of having 2 pistols, 3 shot guns, 1 bow-and-arrow (with 50 arrows), GPS tracking devices, security system, 2 swords, 25 Chinese stars, 2 staffs and a deck of metal “playing” cards.
Why the metal “playing” cards? Well, I can shed blood with *regular* playing cards so you can only imagine what I could do if they were metal…. mwahahahahahahaha!
Jokes aside, I hope to be a good father and provide the things she needs and maybe wants. I know she’ll be able to kick the boys butts when she has to!
