To all the new members plus an update...

First to all the new members...I'm SOOO sorry I haven't posted to each of you. I do read all of your welcome wagons and introductory posts, but things have been so crazy that I haven't had a chance to post to each of you...So I'll introduce myself...I've been on the board a little over a year.

My name is Mandie, DH is Daniel we've been together 6 years, married 2.5. We have a new baby boy, Dawson :) and he's our life. We also have 3 dogs...Henry and Abby and Simon. So we have a full house! Dh is a paid and a volley. He's been with his current dept for 4 years and his volley dept 4.5.

The updates:

Daniel has been unofficially offered the city job! It's contingent upon the physical...of course he'll pass with flying colors..he's the most fit guy I know! He's thrilled, and the funny part is he found out through his current chief...who wasn't upset at all. He doesn't want to lose Daniel but wants him to be happy and be able to move in the direction Daniel wants to move in.

Also Daniel was elected as Capt. at his volley dept last night. He's excited about it, even though he won't say so :)

Dawson is growing, growing, growing...and I love him more than life itself...I now understand that motherly love you hear takes being a mom to know it.

Life has been busy, and wonderful...and tiring, and amazing. I've never been so happy.

Mandie that is great that he got the city job contingent upon his physical. It is great to hear that Dawson is growing and doing good. I remember how it was never understand just what motherly love was until I had my DD.
