My Military Child


April is the "month of the military child". But right now, Millie's far too young to realize that she is one, or to even know the difference between daddy going to work and daddy leaving for duty.

Someday, she'll understand more. She'll have quite a few pictures to look back on, too.











The two of us have made it through weekends away from him, several weeks in a row, and it's likely we'll go through a deployment, too. She's a strong girl, and I know that we'll get through it all just fine. 

I also know she'll grow to be just as proud of her father as I am.

She'll always have these pictures to look back on. It's really special that you document a lot through photography.
And those cheeks! I can't say enough how cute she is :)

Dude, did I mention how Maddow did a whole sidebar in her talk about why the Guard and Reserves have to be called up for all wars now, and therefore are overseas way, way more than they used to be and should be respected as soldiers? I was thinking of you and some of the issues you've talked about.
