Dear Gabe,

I forgot to ask you when the baby is due.  I'm so excited.  The girls and I will be going out tomorrow to look for some more apartment brochures in the area.  Becca says the Widefield apartments are really nice now (new management), and hey... they're just down the way!  Far enough for Kim to have her space, close enough for us to help her out any time she needs it.

Miss Val, Nicole, Conan (remember him?) the baby and JT moved down the block.  I'm so excited to have them so close.  Becca is going to be their back-up baby sitter.  Little Andrew is such a sweet heart.  Morla's ex (I know you remember Mark) leaves for the east coast tomorrow.  I'm still mad at him for what he did to Morla, but I hope he doesn't go back to Iraq because it is so hard on the little ones.

As for you going back to Iraq, my reasons are purely selfish.  Its so hard on me...  I'm really not ready this time.  But I promise you this, if you can get Kim out here, I will make sure she is well taken care of, her and all of the boys, until you can come back and resume your duties.

Anyhow, I just wanted you to know how much I love you son.  Always, forever,
