a mix of happy and sad.

i'm excited because today is my little girl's four-month birthday. can you believe that? a post will come later today with quite a few pictures, and, for delana's sole benefit, an attempt to post a video.

also today kylah comes!!!!!!!!!! yea!!!!!! my beautiful sister will be here for a whole week. i don't remember the last time we've ever had a week to just hang out. maybe we never have.

but those two great things are lessened by the fact that my husband is leaving at noon today to go to nicaragua for 10 days.

he'll miss his first father's day.

that makes my heart hurt.

i know he's going to get to do and see some awesome stuff. the trip is a medical missions trip, and God is going to heal some people big-time, i just know it.

i've been assured that where they're going it isn't dangerous, but i've still been ceaselessly praying for safety. the plane ride is an hour to houston, and then just three hours to managua. doesn't seem that far away, but it is. literally, worlds. might as well be nigeria for as accessible as he will be to me.

so anyway. i'm up now to finish a little work and then pack for landon.

i really wanted to go to bed last night, and i wanted to landon to come with me. i convinced him by promising to get up early to pack his stuff. it worked.

i was gonna be up anyway. i just got done nursing ellie.

poor thing has a super stuffy nose so it's hard to eat. we'll see what the doctor says about that today.

my favorite part of the doctor is seeing how much weight she's gained.

least favorite: shots.

so...happy and sad today.

say a prayer for landon, won't you?

i'm gonna miss him desperately.
