Hi everyone,

Welcome to the March 2009 Babies community, where we chat about our March 2009 children and whatever else is on our minds!

To get things started, I thought it would be nice if we all introduced ourselves in this thread, which will be pinned to the community home page. Whether you're a Circle of Moms veteran or you're new to the site, let us know who you are, what you’re interested in, and what your lovely March 2009 child is up to right now, developmentally speaking!

Hi, Im Tracy and I have 6 children, yes I said 6! My oldest just turned 18yrs in January and of course my youngest was born in March 2009. March 31 to be exact so we just made it in to this group! His name is Matthew and he is such a sweetie! He is so good- natured and happy almost all the time! Thank You God! He has just recently decided that he is done breastfeeding, which was much harder on me than him! He is drinking formula now. He loves every food that I have offered him, and now we are moving to more table foods and thinks that is great! He has 7 teeth, 4 on top and 3 on bottom. He has been crawling since 7 mos and now he is trying really hard to walk. He pulls himself up on whatever is there and cruises everywhere. He will let go and take 2-3 steps to grab on to something else but he still falls down a lot! He can climb stairs readily, so baby gates are up and closed at all times!! He is a great sleeper too! (Wow, just writing this makes me appreciate him even more!) The only problem I really have with him is that he hates his baths! everytime is a battle and he cries, screams and arches his back. I rush through as quickly as possible just to get it over with! I have even tried putting him in the bath with his 3yr old sister (who loves her bath!) so he could see it is fun, but no dice! His screams and cries just upset her, then I have 2 crying instead! So any advice on making bathtime easier would be well received! Thanks! I look forward to reading these many posts on here and getting to know you all better!

Hi, my name is Tina and I'm 27 and a mum to a beautiful daughter Annabelle. We are from QLD Australia. We have just sighted 2 top teeth which explains her mood swings but apart from the teeth, she is a well contented bub who loves her food ;-)

My name is Dani Lynn, Im 22, and Im a first time mom to a baby boy named Kaleb. Kaleb was born on the 1st, he was actually born on his due date because I got induced. He was 8 lbs 7oz 21in and he was born at 11:48pm. He was coming into the world while we were having a snow storm that night. I am from New Jersey, and I am married. My husband and I were trying to get pregnant for 8 months, then one night we got drunk and I got pregnant.

My name is Kelly. I am new to Circle Of Moms.... I have 2 daughters. Lauren just turned 3 and Rachel is 10.5 months. Rachel is very independant! I think that because she is the second child and sees her big sister doing everything on her own, she wants to do everything on her own too. She walks, feeds herself, plays rough.... She's a little brute! When I drop off my oldest at daycare, the baby tries to take toys/food from the other kids! She doesn't care that they are twice her size. She's working on tooth number 4 right now...it's pretty rough...as was #3. Everyone is sleep deprived right now. I don't suppose it helps that she's a very light sleeper.... I think that she's only slept through the night once since she's been born! I think she doesn't want to give up that middle of the night feeding! I hope to one day get more than 4 hours of sleep in a row again. :-)

Hi, I am Leanne and my daughter Hayden was born on March 19th. She is our first. I am interested in what food others are feeding their 10mth old now. I would love to find people close by to set up playdates once or twice a month. I am a scrapbooker who is finding it hard to find the time to do my hobby since I love being with my little one and I work fulltime. Hayden is crawling and thinking about taking her first steps...

Hello. I'm Dawn. I have 3 beautiful girls, my youngest was born on 20th March. She is deaf in her left ear, she has no ear canal, the hole is completely closed. She is however developing perfectly. She can hear, but if you call her she cannot locate where you are calling from and has to look around for you. She is otherwise crawling and has been for 2 months, she cruises the furniture and cruises around behind her walker cart thing. She babbles away and is such a happy little baby, only niggles if tired or hungry. Has however been battling to go to sleep at night lately and sometimes waking the last 2 weeks, any ideas on how to get around that, she may be my 3rd, but honestly cannot remember if and how I delt with the other two... mummu brain!!!!

Hi Kate for USA and all the other Mommy's from around the world! Isn't this amazing that so many people from so many different and diverse place and communicate and help one another with what is the biggest and most difficult job in the world - being a mom. My name is Natacia and I"m from beautiful Cape Town South Africa, my son Jacob was born on the 23rd of March, he's been crawling for almost 2 months now and is trying desperatley to walk. He's the apple of my eye and makes lots of baby sounds including saying mama so far. I make his food for him. Get yourself a steamer and steam veggetables like, baby marrow (courgette), butternut, green beans, broccollie, cauliflower - at first try them on 1 veggie at a time for at least 5 days to make sure they don't have an allergic reaction to any of them and you'll find they don't like the tast of some of them. I tend to mix a whole lot of veggies together now and once steamed i then quickly add some veggie spice which is free of msg and salt. It gives the veggies a nice flavour. I stir fry chicken fillets an also add msg free chicken spice. Always use Olive Oil - its healthier. I then chop up the chicken into fine pieces or if little one is too small - blend it till it's very soft. I also do steamed broccolli and smash cream cheese into it - which is delicous and makes him eat broccolli which most children hate. If you need any more ideas - let me know.

Hi all,

I'm Sarah. I am 32 yrs old working and part time student mom. I have 2 lovely daughters; the eldest is Sharifah age 12 and Syazwani age 10 months. Baby Syazwani was born on the 10th March 2009. Before I had Baby Syazwani, I totaly forgotten how it feels like having a baby again. It has been an exciting and fantastic experience. Now my baby loves to talk and very very active....getting hold on everything and anything she can and put in her mouth..funnily enough she loves to do that just to tease us so that we would sit with her..clever girl:) She eats everything we gave her and she couldn't even sit still for one minute and the same goes for her mother. She's able to walk a step or two but loves to crawl most of the time...and a really smart baby..i look forward to hear and learn a lot from you..so many things to learn and experiences..

Hi! Im Heather and am 32 years old, I am the mother of Trent, born March 14, 2009. His latest milestone is crawling, and he crawls everywhere. He started crawling December 26th. He loves food, and isnt picky at all. He especially loves his peas, carrots and green beans. I am so happy about that because my sisters kids are so in love with sweets and she cannot get them to eat the healthy stuff without a fight.

[deleted account]

Wow there sure are a lot of moms on here! Nice to see such a big community with babies born last March.



Hi! I am Amy and am a SAHM to 4 children and we live in Alberta, Canada. Spencer is 11, Joey is 9, Jayna is 7, and Arabella is our March baby, born on the 18th. We call her Bella. So two boys and two girls, how lucky am I?! As you see my first three are all two years apart and then there is a big gap. No other reason for the gap other than my husband and I changed our minds years later about being done having kids. So yes, our little girl was planned. But with having four rough pregnancies, we are definitely finished this time around! It is truly wonderful having a little baby with three older children who can help. And they do! (At one time in my life I had a 4 yr old, a 2 yr old, and a newborn all at once and it about did me in! LOL)



Bella was actually due on April 16th, I had a C-section date planned for April 8th, but my water broke on March 18, a whole four weeks earlier than her due date! So she was delivered by C-section that day instead! It was a good thing she didn't "cook" any longer because she was found to have the cord wrapped around her neck twice, wrapped around one arm and then tied in a perfect knot. The OB said that it would have been very dangerous for her to have born even two weeks later. But she was a good weight for being 4 weeks early, she was 6 lbs 15 oz and very healthy.



Bella is a happy little girl, always smiling, and laughs easily. Not crawling yet, even at 10 months, but then all my children were very late crawlers and even later walkers. Must be genetic or something, but I don't sweat it. She is trying to crawl now though so it won't be long. I like it when they stay put - hehe.

hi every one, my name is cindy, I am 28 and live in perth, western australia

I am mum to 3 gorgeous little men- Jesse Graham 9, Izak Jonothon 4 1/2 and Ayden William who was born on the 1st of march 09

Ayden is a character, he loves to laugh and pulls faces at his older brothers! he 'comando crawled' for ages and decided that on christmas day 09 he would put a show on for the family and crawl on his hands and knees!!! his favourite way to get around at the moment is on his hands and feet... like a little puppy!!!

Ayden can pull himself up on furniture and 'cruises along' and has just realised that he can step away (to try to walk away with out holding something) but has not successfully walked yet!

ayden loves his solid food, he refused to eat baby food after two weeks so eats meals with the family (just chopped smaller)

Ayden has 10 teeth, all 4 front on to and bottom, plus bottom first mollars on both sides have just come through!) that he loves to use to bight anything or any one that gets close enough ( at a loss 4 how to stop the bighting, was told to bight him back but have found he is just to young to understand that yet!)



cant wait to get toknow you all better!!!

Hey, I'm Anna. I live in Japan with my husband and son but we are moving back to San Diego in June so I just put that as my home town.

Jack was born March 5th, 2009 and it's hard to believe it was almost one year ago.



Developmentally speaking my son thinks that he's a puppy. This is probably because he spends much of his time with the dogs.... Our housing community has, maybe, 5 children around his age so there aren't too many play dates. For this reason I've enrolled him in daycare so he can get the social interaction that he needs.



He crawls, climbs, gets down off of the couch/bed/wherever, walks around holding things (the edge of a couch or he'll hold onto his walker and push it around), he barks, growls and chews on the dogs' ears. He eats most solid foods with no problems. Refuses to give up his bottle, has a blanky, loves to cuddle. Climbs the stairs, waves "hi baby" at the mirror and mimics words that I say (only with the tone of his voice, he doesn't say the words yet).

Hello all.



I'm Sara, 26y/o & mother to a handsome little guy. Aidan William is almost 10 months now (b-day = 3.19.09) & is my world! I was always the one saying I'd never have kids... and look at me now! I wouldn't trade it for the world! Yes, it's hard... but I think we all know how incredibly rewarding it is! Aidan is currently "GI Joe" crawling all over the place... he can't seem to understand how to get those knees up & working just yet. He tries, but always goes back to his comfort position... and he does just fine getting around - can't believe how fast he can go! He's a joy & I'm so excited to be able to watch him grow!
