My husband is returning from a year long deployment. In that time frame I moved my daughter and I back to my hometown to be closer to family. I am needing some ideas to help him feel like home is home. He came home on leave and stated that things felt so different so I am wanting some ideas to help him transition easier.Answer Question

My husband's last deployment was 18 months long and when he left I was 6 weeks prego. He came home to a new baby, a new house and a neighborhood (we moved off base while he was deployed)..There is really nothing that will make him feel COMPLETELY at home but there ARE some things that you can do to make it easier. You could cook his favorite meal for dinner that night or go to his favorite restaraunt. You could have his favorite beverage stocked in the fridge. You COULD invite his family over but it could be a bit overwhelming for him with a lot of people over. I say just stay home and spend the whole day just relaxing at home as a family and letting him get used to the new environment. The first few hours at home are VERY special.

He actually MET our daughter for the first time when she was 10 months old (almost a year old!). Just think of how shocked and saddened he must've been. My husband just held her for the first week. He even slept with her in our bed for a day or two and he refused to let me change or feed her.
