Some of you may remember...so I thought I'd update ya...<br>
My dh just returned from a 6mo deployment--where he missed the birth of our son...(thank God for a homebirth where my attendants had him on yahoo IM and webcam!)<br>
He is really 'into' the baby--I was surprised...considering he couldn't even hold dd for the first few months since she was so little and delicate <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
He got in at 9pm, it's now 11pm and he is in the shower so I thought I'd take this time to say HE'S HOME and I can finally feel 'whole' again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks to all of you who gave me support and well wishes through out these months...especially to the dear women in my ddc (Nov). Countless COUNTLESS nights were spent enjoying your company when I was basically alone and pregnant raising a 4yr old!<br>
I'M SO THANKFUL to have MDC..........<br><br>
That is all...now back to our regularly scheduled programing...........

YEAH! I know my DH was totally differnet w/ the kids after he got back from down range. I think he appreciated them more after missing them. Best of luck. don't forget , reintegration can be hard too...but it's worth it.

I'm glad he is home safely to meet his new baby. I can not begin to imagine what it was like to have him away and missing the birth of his son - for you, him, your DD, or your DS. You are a very strong family to have made it through. I am thankful for the sacrifices your family made (as they were for all of us).<br><br>
Welcome home to your DH. I hope he is home for a very long time.

Thank you guys!<br><br>
We're all having a great time 'readjusting' to our roles...yep, reintegration will be a challenge--but I will keep my head up and try and see the positives...within 6mo we will be back to normal, then it will be time for him to go back again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> hahaha I HOPE NOT!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh Yaaaaaaay!!!!! I have been reading lots of your posts while on the nov. DDC because we were due on the same day so I always remember you saying he was gone (my DP is gone as well but only for weeks at a time not months) It is so hard to adjust when they are gone and to adjust when they are home as well!!! I am happy for the relief you must feel because when my DP is finally home I feel a lot of stress off of my shoulders!!!! You guys must be loving this time together and enjoying every minute with your new enlarged family!!!! May the time pass by slowly!!!!

I should be sleeping, but just had to say that your news brought tears to my eyes. I cannot even begin to imagine what it is like to give birth without him there and have been continually impressed by your tremendous strength.<br>
Well, DD just woke up (my 3yo), so I have to run!
