    Smile Busy, busy, busy.......

    I thought I'd let all my friends know that if oyu don't see me around on here as much it's because I have so much going on now. Between running 5 billets in the Marine Corps, 2 college courses, and volunteering at Havelock my time is pretty much eaten up, haha. Oh, and I just found out the misses is pregnant with our third child (we were trying). So all is good, just busy. I'll miss the discussions, but I'll be in every so often to chat it up with you folks. Stay safe, and keep on savin' lives everybody. Hope you all are having a geat new year, I know I am.

    Thanks box, the Marine Corps has been a good ride, but I'm ready to be a career firefighter again. Times sure were more simple then, haha.

    Thanks brother. HAHA, we were trying, then we both got really sick for a bit. After we got better, we weren't really trying, and BAM, go figure right. What do you do now? I'm hoping to get back on with a career fire department.

    If you want to lose your mind from time to time, just give me a call Brother and I'll send EJ down to play and you can have a go.

    HAHA, if the trend continues the way it has, it won't matter if this is a boy or a girl it'll be a little hellion. We thought our oldest was bad when she was smaller, but now we know just how sweet she was. Our little three year od is mean as hell, always has been. I hope she grows out of it, and I pray to God the new one isn't like that, haha.

    It gets easier my friend. I remember driving home with our first one, I was scared to drive fast or hit any bumps. I was afraid she'd break, haha. After two, this should be familiar ground for me, though I was in Iraq for most of my youngest daughter's second year on this earth, I got home just in time for her second birthday.

    He'll be here mid to late Spetember. We're naming him Aiden. That's a good, strong Irish name, haha. Also of note, Aiden means little fire, I figure it would fit especially if he's a red head like me and my girls.

    Congrats!

    When we went for the ultrasound for our second (first was a girl), the doctor was doing the test and I knew he was a boy before she said it... amazing feeling, because my brother had all girls and this was the first and only boy on our side of the family in that generation.

    Best wishes to you and your family!
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    Thanks Chief, I did the same thing. After having two girls already I knew exactly what we were looking at as soon as the tech brought it up on the big screen. I was so excited, but I didn't say anything until she said, "I've got good news....." And I blurted out, "I know, it's a boy!"
