If you are going to come come now before your baby gets older! The GPs will always hop on a plane or get in their car and head west! Now with that said yes you will miss family terribly!!! We live half way across the country from both sets of ours. Our boys are old enough now that they now the distance is hard. They ask to move to Ga all the time so they can see their GPs everyday or at least more often. One set we see twice a year and the other we see abt 5. I suggest that you make sure both sets have a way to video chat with ya. This helps a great deal especially when baby is growing so fast! When the boys were younger we would chat everyday with the GPs. Now that they are older and have more interests it is once to twice a week though my 6 yr old will walk around the house and talk to his Nana on the phone for hours which she has been known to let him do!
We both grew up in Ga and moved out here in 01. It was tough but we looked at it as new opportunity and we were young with no children. We now call Houston home and hated being away for two years. My hubby has a stable job...knocking on wood... that has been good to us but yes, if he could find a job with the same stability and salary we would love to move back to Ga but that just ain't gonna happen. We get homesick this time of year after visiting and wish we could provide the boys the opportunity to be with their GPs and cousins but in the end you get use to life and just go on with the everyday.
If your wife is on board and you already have a great job lined up I say go for it then. It will be one of the scariest things you ever do but it could also be one of the best! I would say bring your wife out for a visit first though!! See what she thinks of the area and maybe already have the area you want to live in pinpointed and visit there as well! If the wife ain't happy nobody is happy! We lived in Baton Rouge for 2 years and though we miss certain things abt it we HATED moving there and counted the days till we moved back to Houston. Given the choice we would not be moving there again. Trust me a trip out here will be well worth the cost in the end with helping y'all make your decision! Good lucj and Happy Holidays!

Hello Sunblock, I was born in Charlotte and moved to Houston a while back. A lot of my family still lives back in NC. Great state and beautiful place. NC is much prettier than Houston and at first you will get tired of the concrete and the oppressive heat and humidity, but after a while you should get used to it. ( I did). Now I love Houston and feel it's pretty underrated in the grand scheme of things.

Make the move Sunblock. The more I think about it, the more I say to you that you should go for it.

Good luck on your decision. From the 2nd post - I can see why a move would be good.
