Hi everyone,

Welcome to the November 2008 Babies community, where we chat about our November 2008 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 November 2008 child is up to right now, developmentally speaking!

Hi everyone,

My name is Sthembile i'm a full time working 26 year old mom, my baby girl just loves bieng beautiful, she asks me to buy her a wedge, eye shadows, sun glasses, and she reminds me everymonth to take her to the salon. but what i don't like, she always make up stories and the way she tells it you would think its true is that normal? when you tell her that she's lying she'll convince you that its true and after some time she'll say she's joking

Hi! My name is Valerie, and Mathias was born on november 20th 2008. he loves cars, trucks, dragons, playing soccer and Dora the Explorer :) He's fully potty trained since early november but still wears a diaper at night. We're about to move from France to Texas so we'll see if this big move and change in life and life style creates any change! By the way, if any one of you lives in the Austin or Houston (to be confirmed on our side because of work), i'm looking for littles buddies for my little prince!

Hi, I'm Jody, I have two beautiful boys, Jase was born November 23, 2008. My second son Jesse was born January 9th, 2011. Jase is fully potty trained, the last month or so he has been waking up in the night (he used to sleep so good). Hoping it's just a phase.

Hi, I am not sure if I already introduced my self, but heck why not do it again? I am Angela, American who lives with her Dutch husband in The Netherlands. My youngest is Claire she is my November 2008 baby. I also have 2 older daughters and a son.
Claire is bi lingual, she can speak Dutch and English. She can say her abc's but lmnop sometimes gets mumbled! she can count to 15 but after that she mixes it up a bit. Claire loves puzzles, her dolls, Teletubbies, Micky Mouse and friends. drawing, arts and crafts. Singing and music are fun too.
I really enjoy gardening with my Claire, she has her own plants and loves to help me in my garden. In addition she loves to go to garden centers!
We are almost potty trained. At home during the day she wears her panties but we have not done night yet. She also wears pull ups when we go out. But she does not like other people/places toilets! So that is a challenge we are working on at the moment.
I look forward to more time with you all!

Hello, My name is alison my I have two daughters, my toddler was born the 5th of november 2008, my baby 19th of november 2010. The baby is a little mover crawling standing jumping. the toddler very talkative and tries to help look after her baby sister, if i leave hem alone for more than a second my toddler is usually trying to change the babies nappy or is trying to lift the baby to her toy pram so they can go to the park. I am concerned though on how to discipline the toddler, as she can play too rough with the baby and i think the girls learning to play alongside each other is important,
I would be really grateful for some advice on disciplining my two and 3/4 year old.

My name is Rachael and I am married to my best friend, James. We have 3 beautiful daughters. Irish triplets in fact. Our first, Scarlett was born November 2008. She is such a joy, she is fully potty trained and talks ALL the time, and thanks to Your Baby Can Read, she can actually read ME a bed time story!

Our second, Melody Olivia (affectionately called MO) was born in November 2009. She is a total tom boy who loves to climb and swim in the pool. She just started talking and is working on new words everyday.

My third, Hannah, was born November 2010. She is perfect! We have mastered rolling and now we are working on sitting up and eating baby food.

My first birth was a c-section, my second was a VBAC in a hospital with pitocin and an epidural, and my third and easiest birth was at home with my wonderful husband. We are still breastfeeding our 6 month old (no formula) and making our own organic baby food.

There have been many challenges to having Irish triplets but with great challenge comes great reward. I wouldn't change a thing :)

Hi. I am Jen. My son Noah was born November 11th 2008. I am a divorced single mom, just trying to raise my son with good manners and respect for others. Just this morning we started wearing big boy underwear. He has shown interest in going potty, so I figured we would give it a go. Also a few other of his friends at "school" (daycare) started today in big kid underwear. So I figured since they are at the age of wanting to be like their friends this might be the incentive he needs. I am new to this site so please bear with me.

Benjamin is very placid pretty well behaved boy. Timothy is so so so different, i guess he's just a typical 2 yr old but man he is hard work! The boys have very little speech but can talk to each other in their own language!

Hi. I'm new to Circle of Moms. I am a mother of 3 boys (9, 7, and 2[my nov 08 baby]) and step-mom to 2 boys (25 and 22). I need help with discipline!! Being a "veteran mom" you'd think I'd know it all by now, but ALAS I do not. The other boys had the stages of terrible twos and all, but our little one takes the cake. That boy is BULL HEADED to the extreme. He's been through some very tough medical problems the past year and I think because of that he's had a little too much leniency on our part. Now he thinks he's king and won't take no for an answer! Anyone else dealt with this? I've not yet met a child that just REFUSES to surrender like him! lol I've read all the books and tried all the techniques and nothing seems to get through to him. Any suggestions are appreciated at this point - it's nearly impossible to take him out to a restaurant anymore. Thanks~

Hello.... My name is Mary and I am a mother of 2. Nolan who will be 3 on 11/02 and Mason who will be 2 on 11/11 . Nolan is a little behind on learning to talk. He is going to start preschool in November. Nolan plays well with Mason but throws things and hits people when he doesn't get his way. Mason just kind of ignores him and goes on. Nolan had hearing problems when he was 16 months old and had to have tubes put it to drain the built up fluid. and he was a little after 2 years old before he could actually hear again. Mason is learning everything and starting to talk before Nolan. Will it help Nolan with Mason talking?

@ amber that is so amazing for your son to be doing so good his birthday is a day before my 4 year old nephews birthday! good luck with your "ahead of time baby boy!!"

[deleted account]

Hi I'm Amber and I'm new here. I'm married to a military man and have a son named Tim. He turns two on the 21st. He was born at 29 weeks weighing 3lbs 2oz, needless to say I'm a NICU mom! Right now Tim is working with First Steps doing in-home therapy for some delayed areas of development but I dont like to think about 'corrected age' or being 'delayed', no no no my son was born early, therefore he was AHEAD of his time =) You would never know any of that now! He's crazy and the most funniest person in the world. So full of energy. He's learning one step directions and working on vocabulary. Next week he starts with a nutritionist for his sencory issues.

Hi my name Elizabeth, I have two amaizing kids and a wonderful husband. On top of being a full time mom I also work a full time job.

Alexandria who is 6 going on 16 is my "step" daughter I am her mommy, and she is my little princess, she has been with me and my husband since she was a year and a half.

My son Andre was born on November 21, 2008 and wighed 7lbs 11 oz. he was 21in long, he is just a little ball of energy. He loves football he even runs with the ball tucked in his arm like the pros do, he would rather watch that then cartoons. One of his first clear words other than the usual(mommy,daddy, sissy, doggie) was spongebob. Andre says a few comple sentences, loves to brush his teeth, he can also tell you all of his body parts. He also says a couple of words in spanish. Andre also is using a hard sippy no bottles or soft nipples. The only problem we are having with him is sleeping in his own room, Even if I let him fall asleep with us and put him in his own room he will wake up in the middle night and run in the room. We have not started to potty train him yet that will come soon. He is also sill using his "bobo".

Hi Everyone, my name is Jennifer and i am a proud mom of a very energtic 22 month old. His name is Teagan. I also have 2 step childre ages 9 and 6, so you can say I have my hands full. Teagan has been the light of my life since the day I had him, a week and a half late. He learned to sit up by himself at 4 and half months was crawling by 5 months, walking at 7 and running by 9 months. He has had his share of bumps and bruises and it has never stopped him. He is fearless and outgoing and has a wonderful personality. He is very talkative and most people think he is 3 and not almost 2. He keeps me on my toes and is the only thing that can cheer me up when I have had a tough day.

Hi everyone.
I'm Shree and have a little 'princess' - Shannon born on 7th Nov 2008, on my 16th month wedding anniversary.Hubby and I used to celebrate monthly anniversary but since 'her highness's arrival - it's been her monthly birthday! I'm a stay at home mom by choice and currently trying to complete my postgraduate thesis with no help from my princess who recently decided to nickname herself 'pappi'. I came accross circle of moms while taking some timeout from my thesis and I'm so glad i did.
I'd like to get to know you all better and hopefully find other moms with bubs born on the same day as mine. So that we can compare notes and I know I've not neglected her too much :) Cheers.

Hi, My name is Pat (Nigerian) married mom of 2. my daughter is 4 and my son David was born Nov 7, 2008.

David is 1 yr and 10 months now and is quite independent but with limited speech (mama and fine). Have always been with him since birth cos i took some time off work to go bk to sch and have him well i just went back to work and he could not be bothered if i was not there or not( maybe cos he has an aunt that has taken care of him and his sis since they were born) but still unsettling though. h will be starting sch in sept so good for me/him.
