The days and weeks are long when J is gone away on deployment. I miss him and his help around the house, and he misses seeing Soëlie everyday. So, when he is posted someplace that has Internet service, I send him daily updates, in photos, so he doesn't miss the sprout sprouting. A couple of examples:

 
Soëlie has company:




Hungry Moose:
 
 

Yes, I probably spend too much time playing with Photoshop when I ought to be sewing, knitting, cleaning; but Photoshopping is possible with a baby on the lap.  The other things, not so much.

Oh those are adorable! (As is Soëlie. She has such a great range of expressions.)

Yeah, with the gamut of expressions, I can never stop at one photo, hence the strips when trying to decide which one to send to J. :P

Those things are crying out to be preserved for eventual publication...if nothing else, to frighten the boys when she begins dating. *g*

Her expression in the last one is so perfect!

And she does look worried in the one where he's eaten her hat!

Thanks. and I love your icon. Do you know that Soëlie's middle name is in honor of Anne of Green Gables? My in-laws said: "Oh, Ann is such a pretty name. Wewish you would spell it without the E."

Ha! "Nope," I replied, thinking of Anne saucily adding the E to her name when she gets in trouble in school. :P

Soooo adorable. And I bet J appreciates getting them while he's away on deployment. How long is he gone this time?

And, seriously? You *oughtn't* be doing anything other than enjoying your new baby and being a Mom. So I'd say you're succeeding :)

It does tickle him to get his daily dose. :P

This time was two weeks, but he got to place two of his days off back-to-back and come home last weekend.

And seriously? I *LOVE* your philosophy. :D

YEP, and he's even more thrilled to be back at the house with us now! (And we are thrilled, too! I got to go back to sleep at 6:30 a.m. while J took her upstairs.)

Yay for Papa being home!

Mom, btw, loved those "comics" and she loved the Glamour Baby with sunglasses picture so much it's going up on the photo wall.

Soëlie's made the photo wall! Woot. Tell your mom she has impeccable taste. :D
