i'm haveing a little boy his name is going to be Aiden. but yeah i live with my parents right now they can be a help and a pain at the same time lol i love them to death though i just miss having my own place.so where is alex going to a school? are u going to move with him?
wow you know thats pretty cool to know that there is someone out there going through the exact same thing at the same time.that helps me keep faith that i can do this. thank you.
your little boy is so cute! whats his name? are you going to get to go to alexs graduation? i'm not its to close to the due date.but if not u should be able to vist soon so he can see the baby. We've just got to stay positive :)
Me neither! I think I am going shopping tomorrow to try and find something that is dressy, but yet not too much. I think I am wearing heels, but being prepared as I usually am, I'm going to bring flats or something too! I hope its not freezing in Chicago that week!
That awesome that it went so well! My sister had her first child when her husband was in Iraq, so he missed it too. Its hard but when you seem them together, all will be good again :) And what Alex is doing is probably the best for you guys ( thats Brendon's excuse anyway) and everything will work out for the better!
I think its just because my boyfriend left on the same day, and they are in the same division and whatnot, and i felt like i was the only one who was in the situation, not having a baby while he is gone but just being without them. The part that gave me goosebumps is that you sound so strong and optimistic about it all! Having your baby without him is a huge deal, and you sound so hopeful! :)
hey do you know if your boyfriend has gotten any letters cause devin told me that he hasnt gotten any and i have been writing him since the 10. i dont know if its cause of the address change or what .so i was just wondering.
