I'm new. My name is Jennifer and I had my first baby, a boy named Ethan, on January 23rd of this year, at the ripe old age of 39! There have been moments, over the past few months, when I've thought "why did I think this was a good idea?! I'm too OLD for this!" But seriously, it has been an amazing experience.
My fiancee and I (we got engaged in April of 2008 and then discovered we were pregnant in June--ooops--had too much going on all at once so decided to postpone the wedding--we'll get around to it one of these days :-) live near San Jose, Ca. We have a chocolate lab and I have a 24 year old horse that I used to ride in dressage. My fiancee works in high tech, I work in the early care and education field (it was good practice!).
I've recently returned to work full time (a month ago) and am adjusting to the whole work and family life thing. Ethan is in full time childcare. I wish I could have stayed at home with him longer but it's just not an option right now. Especially in the current economy.
Anyway, I've probably said too much.
I look forward to getting to know many if not all of you better and hope to learn and share!
