I was finally able to hear my husbands voice!!! It was so good to talk to him. For the past three weeks it has seemed like he's going to be gone forever - now that I've been able to talk to him it feels like he's on a short business trip. We are planning a trip for me to come for a 24 hour visit in two weeks. So exciting! He's doing well (minus a cold that EVERYONE has). He really appreciates all of the letters and encouragement he has received - keep it coming! Here is a picture of my marine:
The more exciting news I have to share with the internet world is that we are expecting our first child in September! We are very excited to meet our little jelly bean (that's what we've named him/her for the time being). Zach's convinced that it's a boy and my father is convinced it's a girl - we'll see!
