Month Of the Military Child ♥ Honoring Our Military Children~ Week Two

On 1 April I asked friends on my Blog Facebook Page that are Military & Veteran Families to share pictures and/or stories of their Military Children throughout the Month of April to Celebrate Month of the Military Child. I am Honored to share each of them here for all to see how much our little ones endure and how sweet and brave they truly are. 

Demoney ♥ This is Jade and her Daddy ♥ Baby Brother will be here soon!
Riley ♥ This is my youngest son Jason. He's endured three moves, a deployment, and recruiting duty in his short 6 years. He's such a trooper and a big helper to me even though his daddy had been gone more than he's been home.
Aubrie Skye♥
Pugh Raylan Beau (8 months) and Reagan Bristol ( 21 months) Easter 2013.

Blair Just wanted to share the pic of my little guys :) jayden is 4, korbyn is 3, jaxsyn is 20 months and kaycen is 3 weeks. Jaxsyn was our pre deployment baby (i was 12 weeks when my husband deployed) and kaycen is our post deployment surprise (we said we were done after jaxsyn) my little guys can be a handful at times but their strength and the way they handled their daddy being away and how they always knew what to say or do to put a smile back on my face when i struggled still surprises me a year later.

Hall These are our beautiful babies! Braden is 3 and Blakeleigh is 4! Sometimes we lie and just call them twins lol they are truly the best kids I could have ever imagined! They are perfect!!!!!!
Weatherholt My babies, Rilee (6) and Owen (3). Daddy is a corporal in 1st Battalion 24th Marines...a reserve unit out of Selfridge ANGB in Mt Clemens, MI. Though a reservist, daddy is away more than he's home. My babies are so awesome at "understanding" this craziness! In 2011, after nearly a year of pre-deployment training and attempting to prepare our family for 9 months of dad being somewhere other than 29 Palms, the deployment was cancelled. Hallelujah! But talk about confusing for two little ones! Rilee was so great about getting Owen used to dad being home more often, and helped him through the moments when he had to leave unexpectedly. My kids roll with the punches pretty well. With a dad who's schedule is insanity and a mom who also works full time, these kids are my heroes!!!! They have been MY rock when all I wanna do is sit, eat raw cookie dough out of a tube, and cruise QVC in my nightgown. :) My military brats are what keeps us smiling and laughing each day..."normal" day or not!

  1. This is a beautiful, beautiful tribute to the military children, and their parents, Jenni. It made me cry. I'm so proud of the men and women who serve our country. They sacrifice everything to keep us safe and free. And I'm so grateful to the spouses and children who hold things together at home while they're gone. I'm going to share this link on my FB page. Thank you for doing this. God bless you and all our military families.
