Well because of the deployment situation it's different all together...

We got married and he "inherited" Derrick. They got along ok the first eyar and better each year until 2008 when things hit rock bottom. They are still trying to mend their relationship but that is hard when dh is thousands of miles away.

With Xavier dh was gone until he was 3 months old. Then he was only home for r&r(2 weeks) and he helped a lot. When he got home for good Xavier was a little over 6 months old. He helped a ton, infact I just kind of relaxed the first 6 months or so.

With Peyton he was home for the hard part - the first 2 months. He held me when I cried, held Peyton when she cried...etc. Now that he is gone he offers words of support but that is about all he can give now. We will see him in July when Peyton is about 9mos old for 2 weeks then he won't be home until after her 1st birthday...so we are the "exception"...in a way I'm a single mother - but I still depend on my husband for emotional and verbal support.
