Michael was amazed at the changes in Hailey. She's now potty trained and communicating so much better. She wouldn't let him out of her sight. She wanted him to take her out of her car seat, read her bedtime story, etc. It was hard getting her to go to sleep because she kept crying for him.
As you can see by this picture, even our old wiener dog, Oscar, was happy to see Michael. As for me, these absences always make me appreciate what Michael means to our family even more. He contributes not only to our physical needs, but emotionally as well. Our marriage isn't perfect. We have our struggles just like anybody else, but this I know. God gave me a wonderful gift when he chose Michael to be my husband. He knew exactly what I needed.
