Where to start...? I feel like I need to re- introduce myself all over again! So much has changed in our lives! Hi! I'm Susie, I'm married to my high school sweet heart ( been together for 6 1/2 yrs married for almost 2 yrs!) now a stay at home mama to my sweet boy Noah and the fur ball Cosby. Ah, there we go. ;) The most I've had a chance to post on is my Abbie's monthly updates, in reality it should be daily updates because he is growing and changing every single day! He just began his 6 th month and let me tell you, it's a tough one. Hello teething! Goodbye sleep! ( I'm typing this at 1 in the morning..) There's so much I haven't gotten to blog about and one of those main or HUGE life changes I haven't been able to blog about is that of us becoming a military family. We are currently in the process of David joining the Air Force . Papers are not done being signed, background checks are still happening but we have been in the process for about 3 months now and it's almost set in stone that he is in. To help the process we have also decided to move in with David's father and step mom. Honestly speaking I haven't told too many people that because I was afraid of the judgment that would follow if people knew we moved back in with our parents.not everyone is in agreement with our decision but we are doing what is best for our little family. It's not a great feeling to go backwards , but knowing that a step back will eventually put us a few steps ahead in life is a good feeling! We need to save so that Noah and I will be more than okay while David is away for Bootcamp and training. So that being said, life is treating us good so far. I've gotten to know David's dad and step mom so much better and I've gained a great love and connection with them. We are two hours away from most of our family and about 4 hours away from my dad now. :( it's different but we are doing so much better and able to now get organized financially. We got married and did it all on our own, lived on our own and now it's great knowing we are being helped out a bit. I'm excited that : 1.) David will be doing something he enjoys now. 2.) Move somewhere new 3.) We will have a house with military housing!!! 4.) Besides Bootcamp , training and deployment, I will have my husband home every single night and ill have someone to cuddle with in bed! ( right now he works 24 hour shifts so every other night he's home but than wakes up at 3:30 am to go to his EMT job) I'm Nervous: 1.) I don't know what to expect. 2.) what if he doesn't get in or join after all, and we've already adjusted and made so many new changes?! 3.) nervous to pretty much parent on my own without David 4.) ahhhh!!!! I don't know if any of you military wives or mamas ever felt like this but input would so be appreciated! Prayer is what I am relying on because I really want us to be following Gods will not our own and so far it seems like this is the direction that he wants us to go. There's a lot to life right now and it's all happening so quickly . I'm ready to face the future with embracing arms and an open heart. This weekend ( tomorrow ) my brother comes home so it should be a good two weeks ahead!
