Mijkij, thank you so much, and also to those of you a bit away from town. I'm so excited to begin our new adventure! It all starts in the next week or two w/ the return of dh from deployment, then 2 weeks leave, then only 4 or 5 weeks to get everything in order! That IS an adventure!
Mijkij, where will you be giving birth? I had my youngest (6 months today, boy time flies!) at home, and I'm certain I could never go back to the hospital. We are planning on one more (and, considering dh's long-time absence and my fertile tendancies despite exclusive BF, one might be able to predict the timing, lol)
So please, ladies, tell me a bit about yourselves! What branch are you all associated with, how long have you been military, where else have you lived/been stationed? What do you and/or your husband do?
As I said, we're Air Force, and my husband is a fire fighter, which he enjoys imensely. We're currently in Cheyenne, WY, and this is our first base. I am kinda a military brat - my dad was Army when I was young (in fact, I was born in Landstuhl!), but seperated when I was 6 or 7. We then lived in NC for 7 years while he went back to school, after which he got a job in Ohio, where I went to high school and college (ohio university) and met my husband (who went to Urbana University, which was very near my parent's home).
Most people might be intimidated by the whirlwind of activity that is about to descend on our household, with the return of dh and nearly immediate move overseas, but our life in general has been a veritable whirlwind. We met in 02, got engaged (and bought a dog!) in 03, married in 04. near the end of 04 he enlisted, at the end of 04 we got pg. DD was born in 05, ODS in 06, we... bought a new minivan?... in 07 (lol), and YDS was born in 08. Obviously, 09 will bring about an overseas move, and if all goes according to plan 10 will bring a 4th and final baby. phew, it'll make your head spin!
