Last Friday of Freedom

Well the last Friday of freedom has arrived. We moved out all the big stuff yesterday and into storage. We still have some items and our attic stuff left to move. We are staying in the barracks. It's not to shabby. Actually better than base housing :). The flights to Iraq are ranging from the first week in Aug to the second week of Sept. We should know next week who goes when. We had a long night and are very tired, including everyone who helped us. The guys from work were great. It was 95 degrees yesterday and 100% humidity, felt like 110 degrees. Everyone helped though and it worked great. We still have a long weekend ahead of us. On a lighter note, Cody walked about 50 steps in a row yesterday. He took a whole tour of the barracks - walking! He holds his hands in the air when he walks for balance, looks kind of funny :) !!

It's steph--Cool! I can still hardly believe he is walking. We look at Josiah now and this is where we remember Cody being. We'll have to see how he masters that step that goes into the playroom, all our kids have problems with that. Oh, here's an update for you. Josiah is killing me! He is 3 mths 2 weeks old and is about 26" long and 15 lbs. He's HUGE! I got called to possibly do another surrogacy, so keep your fingers crossed!
