First of all, I am so sorry I have been so neglectful of this blog. I quickly re-did it so it is still under some bit of construction. If you or if you know of anybody who is willing to help me make this blog look amazing, please let me know!
Second of all, I have not written in forever. I kind of just fell out of it. That being said, I am sorry if this is a horribly written piece of work – uninteresting, jumbled, and all over the place.
Either way, I hope you enjoy reading this much anticipated update.
Most of you all know that Justin and I got back together about 5 months ago. Since then we have moved in together and things are going great! I will post some apartment photos later! We are also about to take our second trip to go see Callie together in a few days, which brings me to the main topic of this entry.
Justin met Callie for the first time. It was amazing seeing them together. She instantly clanged to him and didn’t even notice his tattoos. ; ) We spent a wonderful Easter with her and Kenny and Lisa. Kenny even took some awesome photos of us three. She is so beautiful, energetic, and full of life. Callie also has the biggest sense of humor that I have ever seen.
As soon as Justin saw her, you could tell his face lit up. Whenever he talks about it, he says that it didn’t actually click in until he saw her in person. He says he just saw her walking around the corner, in her cute little yellow dress, and that was it. He was instantly in love. Who couldn’t be?
Let me also tell you such a cute story about this photo. Callie and I were outside playing with chalk, while Justin was inside. I drew the little girl in the middle with the dress, and I said, “Who’s that?” Then Callie goes, “Me!” So I drew myself to the right and I asked her who it was and she goes, “Mama!” Now, you guys might be wondering what she refers to Justin as. Well, for now, she calls him Justin, until she can form her own opinion. Anyway, just as I was about to draw Justin, she points to the left of her and says, “Draw udtin (justin) here!” It was so adorable.
Now, as you can see, she obviously loves him already. Every time we Skype she asks for him. I just think, “geez, what about me?!” Just kidding. I am happy they click so well. But, there was a time when they were on the trampoline that she didn’t want me. Kenny and Lisa have a beautiful deck outside and we were barefoot on it since we had been on the trampoline previously. To get to the trampoline, you have to walk through the grass, so she asked Justin to carry her to the trampoline. I got up to come, and she says, “No mama! No! No!!” She didn’t want me! I thought she was kidding, so I try to crawl into the net to get into the trampoline, and she continued to say that she just wanted Justin! I couldn’t believe it. I was a little bit sad, but I guess it was okay. It was kind of bittersweet. I’ll just keep telling myself that it is because Justin can do flips and spin her way faster than I can. ; )
We did get to go visit the beach when Callie was napping and had a nice lunch / walk together! <3
Saying goodbye was pretty hard for us. It seemed like Justin was going to even cry. Honestly, I feel like he might have a little bit. I don’t know. But I do know that he was sad. Of course, I did. I always do when I have to leave her behind. I felt bad. When we were upstairs with her she told us, “No bye-bye.” Then said “Bye, bye” in the saddest way. Of course, that is how all babies are when they don’t want people to leave. I probably just felt it more. These are some of the last photos of the visit that we took with her. I am honestly just so thankful to God for letting this work out the way it did. Callie will get to know both of us, and I have never been so happy. Justin is doing so great, and I am so glad to see it.
Now, I cannot wait to squeeze that widdle bewwy again!
Lastly, check out these beautiful photos of them together.
Until next time . . .
