Hi everyone,

Welcome to the May 2009 Babies community, where we chat about our May 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 May 2009 child is up to right now, developmentally speaking!

hi my names caroline 39 and im a proud mum of 2 boys fabien16 harry-charles11 and now an even prouder mum of my only little girl sara born 6th may this year, she was very nearly a home birth,

all 3 pregnanceys have been good no complicaitions bar a few stitches that is bar this last time that she was born so quick my best firend was the one that caught her befor she went right off the end of the bed lol lol

she was born at 258am 5lb 14oz and i was over the moon in finally getting to meet her.

the daughter id always wished for, there never a day goes by that i dont pinch myself and natrally im enjoying her she started to ammaze me from only just 3 hrs old when she from nowhere started to hold her own head at 14 days she ammazed me again that it became clear shed a very strong lower back, and now well it be easyer to say of what shes not doing just yet cus shes since four mths achived so much that prety soon ill have to have eyes in the back of my head, but i wish shed just slow down and not be in such a rush to doing it all she more into wanting to walk than crawl and started pulling herself up to a standing at just about 4mths just under 6 mths she actually took her first steps aided only now getting confadant to try and letting go but her balacne ant there quite yet. yes she can roll from back to front and vica get on her knees and ands but not learnt how to move all four in cordination so moves her legs bit but not her arms so flops on to her hands but shes learnt in doing that it dose mover her forards a little to grap at a near by toy in failing that shell grap the blanket n pull it to her lol lol

shes on solids has two protuding bottom teeth and in the proccess of gaining a further 4 top ones so is suffering abit right now with them so am feeling for her right now too cus they really are hurting her ,

she now weighs around 13lb 15oz was a breast fed baby up till 4mths too she loves fiffi hannas help line pepper pig and the wot wots spoty wot n dotty wot is it?

baths mmmmm i think she thinks shes in training for the 2012 olimpics

on one hand im in ore of how much she has achived in what is a relativly short time but on the othere i wish she wasnt in a rush to lose her babyness and yet with all she can do the harder things she has no interest to hold her own bottle but wants what ever is going in my mouth togo in hers ,,,,my days are never dull and just like someone els said i do stop to think of how great god is for choosing me to be her mum i never forget to thank him for such a lovely gift he clearly must think im the right person for to have her for to finally make my dreams come true though i love my boys every bit as much as i did the day they came too but with my bio clock ticking away she has compleated me and my family as for the dads well there loss for they will never know just what gifts of wander they all are and could of been part of

fabien is at collage doing public services with the hopes of joining the raf, harry charles hes no sence of fear out going energetic and no doubts will want to work out doors,,,, has all the girls round him and has a diff gf from one week to the next lol lol and now sara mmmm i think shell be the thoughtfull one and very girly but also be one of the boys up to a point too. shes two tattoos already though inviserble to the naked eye but one on each little finger that says mum lolololol but you know what she being my only little girl id not have it any other way the meaning of sara is princess and thats exactly what she is to me .... and angel too

Hi..My name is Natashia. I'm 25 year old Aussie mum and had my first child on the 15th May. His name is Castiel Baelian and he was 7lb 3oz at 11:58am. I woke up at 2am to go to toliet and my partner took one look at me and said and I quote " Are you ok?" of course I said yes then I had a contraction. Then he said "F#$k off you are get in the bloody car." As we live 30 min drive away from hopstial. All he was worried about was my waters breaking in the car. So it only took him about 10mins to get to hopstial.(men and their cars) My partner was in the labour ward with me right up until midwife said you can start pushing then he ran away leaving me there with my mum. As hes an only child he has had a lot of ajusting to do. But we are both coping very well with castiel. I have asked him if we will ever have and more children and he said I dont want to out you through the pain of labour ever again. I think its sweet he cares so much about me, but I still want more. My partner is so good with castiel maybe with time he will change his mind.

Hello all,

My name is Michelle and I'm a mom to two little boys. Morgan Alexander, my 2nd, was born May 7th, weighing 6lbs 6oz, and 19in long. Two weeks later he gained 2lbs. Now at 6 months he weighs 19lbs and is 27 1/4 in long. He is growing like a weed! He loves to watch his brother and to get any attention from his brother. Morgan is sitting up on his own, trying his best to crawl, is in the process of getting both bottom front teeth, and is just a joy!

I'm new to Circle of Moms and am looking forward to chatting more and checking the site out more.

Congrats and best of luck to all the moms!

Michelle

Hey! My name is Kayla. My Beautiful Daughter Kenley Madisyn was born on May 24th at 1:08 pm. she weighed 7 lbs 14 oz, and 19 3/4 long.



I call her my Super baby bc she started developing rather fast. At 3 months she was supporting herself on her hands and knees and started the basics of crawling. At 5 months, she has now mastered Crawling and its pulling herself up to Stand. She began to sleep through the night, then a few weeks later she started waking up again. We have used the cry it out method lately, and she has been sleeping from 9 to 730!



This little girl and her daddy are my world!

Hello, I am Bishakha, living in Bangladesh. I am a working mom. I leave my baby with my mom. I have recently started feeding him semi-solid foods. My little one can now sit with a little help, but he seems to prefer to lie down or be carried around. I would like suggestions about how to make my baby more receptive about food and how to make his sleep last longer.

Regards

Emily is our first child, so everything is new to us. She was sleeping though the night at 6 weeks...what a God-send that was. Having just moved house, dealing with her first cold and signs of teething...she isn't sleeping too well at night . She loves her Jolly Jumper and standing up. She started rolling from front to back pretty early...as she hates being on her front!! We start our first swimming lesson this Saturday...so excited!! :)

It surprises me that my 2 boys are so different but look so much alike. Jordan is cutting his 2 bottom teeth already and hasn't been fussy at all (surprising to me). He loves to laugh and smile and bounce up and down in his Johnny Jumper!!!

Spencer is a good baby, he sleeps from 8pm till 6am. He has just cut his first tooth after having a cold for 2 weeks. The cold is now back 2 weeks after the tooth came through so we think the next one is on the way.

Hi, I'm Maria & my daughter Sydney Arianna was born on May 8 @ 3:27pm..Labour went fast and didn't have an epidural (not by choice, just didn't have time to administer it)..Thinking back, I'd probably do it again the same way! It was great being able to get up & move around after the delivery. Sydney has a great appetite, started eating cereal at 5 months, and she's still breastfeeding. She is also sleeping through the night (typically going to bed 9:30-10pm, and waking up around 8-9am). So blessed to have her..Couldn't ask for a better baby!

Hello, my name is Carol, I am 30 years old and a first time momma. Our son, Bennett, was born on May 2, 2009 @ 12:05 p.m. (6lbs9oz & 19.5 inches long). We have been blessed with a healthy, happy baby. He has just started to eat solid foods as we continue strong with breast feeding. Bennett just turned 6 months old and he is incredible! He loves playing in his jolly jumper, babbling non stop, he can roll from his tummy to his back (refuses to try the other way), almost able to sit up on his own. We just started him in swimming lessons (Splashers) and he LOVES it.

Hi Everyone! I'm Miriam, a first time mom at 31 years old to Hudson Lawrence. He arrived on Memorial Day, May 25th at 11:27am after 20 hours of back labor & no drugs! He weighed in at 8 lbs 6.4 oz. He is the most beautiful little boy with the sweetest personality and disposition.



My only wish is that he would start sleeping through the night again. He's teething and he refuses to stay asleep. But this should even out soon enough... I hope.



I'm new to Circle of Moms and I know this will be a great source for help.
