Daddy's Home

Well, Eric has been home a little over a week now has. been. WONDERFUL!
It's now hard to even remember what it was like without him here. Jo has taken to him fairly easily. She was a little shy the first day, but she's over that now. She loves her Daddy! Rye is so excited to have him home too. She loves playing video games with him and reading in the evenings. She's even done really well with accepting discipline from him, which was something we struggled with last deployment. I'm not sure when he'll have to leave again. We've heard anywhere from May to August of next year. We're going to enjoy our time together while we can and make it count. I know most of you have seen the homecoming pics. For those that haven't, as soon as I get the cd of them, I'll post them. Here are some great pictures we've taken in the last week.
Our baby is getting so big... The girls playing with Daddy.
Rye being used as a pillow
Yep, she's standing by herself. It doesn't happen very often or for very long, but it's a start.

His second morning home we just hung out in bed. It was great for the girls. Sorry, the strap of my camera got in front of the flash and blacked out Rye.

Eric with crazy eyes after I told him to open his eyes cuz he looked high in all the pictures. Hehe.
Eric absolutely LOVES when Jo lays down on him and she loves doing it. Whether it's to fall asleep or just to cuddle. It's so great to see them bonding.
Her eyes are open. She's just woken up from a nap. We couldn't tell is she was freaked out or not. I think she was just chillin'.
A baby girl after her Daddy's own heart. Jo loved playing with Eric's empty Monster can. He had me take some pictures for his buddy, Danny who is a serious Monster addict.
