Tommys Graduation

My amazing husband graduated from the academy on Tuesday, making him Officer Thomas Robertson, Cook County Sheriff! I am bursting with pride and cant type this without a goofy grin.

His graduation was at the college he has been training at. My parents and I picked a spot in the back, not knowing how Trevor would sit during the hour long ceremony. Trevor did great! He had a few snacks, was passed to my Mom so I could take pics, babbled, and only had to be taken out to walk around a few times. I was so glad my Mom was willing to chase him around so I could focus on Tom.

Lined up to march, he is 4th

Walking in
Being sworn in, look at that cute smirk
Can we take a moment to take in the awesome shirt? I nearly died when I found it at Old Navy!

I could barely contain my excitement for the hour. I couldn't wait to get my arms around my man! I am SO proud of him. We have been talking about this day for years and let me tell you, it feels perfect!

After the ceremony, Tom introduced me to a bunch of the classmates. It was nice to meet the people that have spent so much time with him for the past 4 months!

We went home and had celebratory sex. The only reason I mention this is if we were normal people, we probably would have made a baby today. And referred to the baby as Graduation baby. If only..Also, I'm not sure if we will be on restriction after the transfer, so this may be it for a while.

A bit later, we went to dinner to celebrate with some family and friends. This time, Trevor was not liking being confined! I haven't mentioned it yet, but he is walking almost exclusively. He missed his nap this afternoon, was held a lot and had to sit still. We pretty much had to pass him back and forth and let him roam the restaurant a bit. I made sure Tom was able to enjoy his steak.

My brother ended up treating everyone, which was so generous. Tom and I are going out Friday night for his "badge party"..arranged by the class to get drunk and celebrate being cops. ;)
Evan arrives tonight at about 7pm. I plan on treating her to some Giordano's deep dish pizza, if shes hungry. We will get everything set for tomorrow and try to call it an early night. Tomorrow morning we have to drop Trev by my sister and be downtown at 8:30am. Were supposed to get a few inches of snow tonight, so I want to leave a little bit earlier. Plus, Ive never been to this building before, and I don't want to be stressing!
I'm nervous about how our babies will thaw. I wont know anything until we arrive tomorrow. The transfer will be done at 9am. If you could say a prayer around that time, I would be forever grateful. We had hundreds of people praying for Trevor and I know it played a big part in his life. :)
I really cant believe we are here again. Tom expressed his fear of it not working the other day. He said, "It just seems too easy." I agree. But, isn't it about time something was easy for us?
