Hi ladies, sorry I have been MIA

I have been lurking the past few days trying to figure out how to use the new board.

My DH left today. I just cannot even say how sad I was to see him go, I have been trying to be tough and not cry but it's hard. I hope the 9 weeks go by fast. I just keep looking at the door waiting for him to walk thru it. I'm trying not to let myself get too upset about it because I dont want the baby to sense that something's wrong with mommy and start crying.

Braden is doing well, growing like a little weed. He's up to 7 lbs 13 oz and 20 inches. He's just a doll. He actually slept thru the night last night! It was so nice to get some sleep. Being that he's just 2 weeks old I have a feeling that it's just a fluke thing but I'll take what I can get! I just feel so bad for Dane every time I look at the baby, he is going to look so different when Dane sees him again. Oh well. SUch is the life of the military family, right?

Anyway I am going to attempt to catch up on the board here...still trying to figure out how to post replies but I'll get the hang of this.

Miss you all and hugs to each of you.

Hi Jami! Aren't these new boards crazy!? I'm sorry that Dane had to leave so soon after Braden's birth. I'm glad he was there for the birth though.

You're in good company. I've been thinking how different Lance will be when Scott gets back. Heck, Lance will have teeth, be walking, and goodness knows what else. :(

Having children sure does make you realize how time marches on, huh? It stinks! (But it's so great at the same time. LOL, I'm so conflicted!)

Big hugs to you, Jami.

:) Melissa

Huge Hugs Jami!

I remember the first time Steve left after I had Chelsea. It seemed so much harder than any other time he had left me. Take lots of pictures, he'll be able to call as well so that should help as well.

I hope you get to sleep again for a full night!

Hugs to you and Braden! Thinking of you!

Jami, it is perfectly reasonable to be MIA. Just know that we care about you and post whenever you can.

Hugs and kleenex coming your way,

Big hugs, Jami. I'm glad that you've come out of lurkdom, and I am truly sorry that you had to say good-bye to your honey today. And thanks for the update on Braden, he sounds like a doll.
