Introductions All Around

[deleted account] ( 146 moms have responded )

Hi everyone,



Welcome to the October 2007 Babies community, where we chat about our October 2007 children and whatever else is on our minds!



I just took over the reins as the community administrator… So, I thought it would be nice if we all introduced ourselves in this thread, which will be pinned to the community home page. [This is going to be sort of a repeat for those of that you that have already posted to the thread that the previous administrator (Lisa) posted.] 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 October 2007 child is up to right now, developmentally speaking!

Hey there everyone!! My name is Holly and I have three little girls - with the middle one being my October 2007 baby! Her name is Nadia (my other two are Sasha, who is 7, and Elena, who is 8.5 months, she'll be 1 in February).



Nadia just turned 2 on the 18th and got all new toys for her babies (aka her dolls), including a new one! She's a little mommy and loves feeding, changing, rocking and singing to her babies. She loves singing and actually responds to the type of song that's on! If we play blues she makes her sad face and wimpers (she's got the lower lip wiggle and the sad eyes down like a pro!), if we play rock she sings/yells at the top of her voice and does head banging, if we play anything upbeat (i.e. dance music) she dances all around while singing along (in her own words of course!). She has a very advanced vocabulary and can count to 4 without any help. We are working on colors and she has blue, pink, purple, orange and yellow down pat! She also loves making animal and train sounds! She points out trees, cars, trucks, birds, rain, and the list goes on ("Look Mommy! A truck!!!" is one of her favorite things to say when we're driving, and sure enough, she is always pointing to a truck when she says it!). She loves the park (which is right around the corner from us) and the highest slide is her favorite! Her favorite activity is being with her big sissy at all times and being just like her! It is so cute to see them together and I can't wait for my youngest to get to this age and play along too!



She is more independent than most kids, and would rather play by herself next to everyone than actually play with them, but she is very happy to do that and loves being around her friends at daycare (which is at my MIL's house). We are getting her a play stove and kitchen set for Chirstmas since she loves playing with the one at daycare so much - she makes "food" for everyone and we all have to "eat" it for her! :)



As for me, I am a full time college student and my hubby is a self-employed painter while he goes to school too. I am getting my degree in Human Services in May and he is getting his in Art in December (if it all goes to plan...). After I graduate, I am going to work for my state government and my hubby wants to continue school to get his Master's in Art so he can teach at the college level.



That's it for me, I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and being able to share our stories of our beautiful children! :)

[deleted account]

I'm Abi, and my son Aiden just turned 2 yesterday (on the 29th)...he is my only child and I am a single mom so we are very close.... he's a mama's boy w/o all the bad connotations of the stereotypical 36 yr old “geek” still living in his mother basement... :-) haha... anyways... we live in the suburbs of Chicago and I am a full time college student.... He loves to read, and developmentally we just learned to count successfully to 3 and we are working on our alphabet andnumbers! Hopefully I will get to know a lot of you... this group has already allowed me to connect with another Oct. 2007 mom (Sheila) and her daughter (Zoe) whom Aiden and I just exchanged birthday cards with!!! Always willing to lend advice.. if I have any good stuff to give!!! :-)

Hello all my name is Elisha! I am the mom of 2 wondeful children. My 4 yr old Son, Damion who was born on 10/28/07, and my beautiful daughter Karma who is 18 months. Damion has had some speech problems that had me worried that he may have other developmental delays, but ever since he started talking (about 6 months ago) he has proven to be such an intellegent lil man.

Hello everyone. My name is Lyana and I am a SAHM to S.R. who is 3 now (Oct baby) and F.A. who is 6 (Sept baby).
We just moved from TX to AR, so dealing with some stress issues, but have been able to potty train successfully. Only thing not done yet is separate beds, but that is because of the move (no space).
I hope to connect with other moms (maybe even some in AR) for help and support.
Have a great day everyone!

Happy Fall! Latrice speaking and I'm not a SAHM :) I'm a worker bee mommy with a soon to be 3 year old on Oct. 20th and a soon to be 2 year old on Jan. 14, 2011 and a soon to be 29 year old husband next year. Busy busy busy having 3 kids :) LOL! My big girl (Kennedie Grace) is already reading...thank God for the "My Baby Can Read" program and she just blew me away 2 weeks ago when she started counting from 1-10 in Espanol! Bear (Keri Elle), the baby girl is learning everything from her big sister and is the sweetest thing :) I believe my husband and I may prayerfully plan for another 1 or 2...but for now we're happy :)

Take care!

Hello my name is Juli and I'm a stay at home mom of my almost 3 year old (on the 29th) daughter Makenzie and also a 4 month old Leah. Makenzie is a great little girl so much fun and very happy. She loves her baby sister and is very helpful with her. She counts to 12 and loves to sing Twinkle Twinkle. She's into tons of things, farm animals, wow wow wubbzy, elmo, Land Before Time, dolls, playing dress up, helping me is the biggest thing right now. She's not in Preschool due to my timing mistake with applying so we are trying to make the most of it by adding more crafts and projects for her to do also going to the park a lot more getting her out and able with other kids. I love my kids and staying home with them is the best thing ever. I look forward to getting more involved in this site and meeting new ppl.

Hi! My name is Betsy. I have one son, Cale, who is turning 3 tomorrow! I can't believe it! One month after my son's 2 year birthday, our house burned to the ground. We have just recently moved into another house after a long battle with our insurance company. My husband and I have been trying to encourage our son to potty train, but he refulses. He will go at daycare, but refuses at home. I would love any suggestions from all you other moms out there to help make this a little easier.

Hello fellow October 2007 mommies! My husband Rodney and I were blessed with Abigail on Oct. 25th, 2007. She is coming in to the "terrible 3's" with a vengeance. Everyone tells me "this too will pass." "She is expressing anger and defiance as she tries to control her surroundings." In our fast-paced world, I am finding it VERY difficult to allow her the time to argue about breakfast, what she will wear for the day and why her new doggie can't go to school with her, etc... I was blessed with her at 43. So now at 46, the hormones and nerves are starting to kick in. Do they have a serenity prayer for late in life motherhood? LOL! Anyway, ...nice to meet all of you!

What a difference a year makes! My son Brody went in on August 24, 2009 for open heart surgery. They repaired a hole in his heart and installed a pacemaker. Within three weeks of his surgery, our oldest girls started school and our youngest daughter was born! Phew! Brody is an amazing little boy. He is our only boy so he keeps me on my toes! We are working on his letters now. He knows his shapes, colors and can count to 20. He loves when I (or his oldest sister) reads to him. We are full on in the Toy Story phase!! I am so thankful for my little man!

My name is Alva and I am a 46 year old mom of three kids. James will be 10 in December, Erica will be 7 in January and Gillian will be 3 in October. Gillian was a preemie but you would never know it to see her. She is my chunky monkey. My husband is a chef but don't think that means he cooks alot here at home. That's what I had visions of but the reality is cooking all day at work means when he gets home, he doesn't want to cook. C'est la vie. What's your story?

My other boys are 11 and 5. So right now we are getting ready for kindergarten, middle school, oh and I just finished nursing school. We have a very busy life right now!

Hi everyone! I'm just starting to try and figure out this circle of moms thing! I'm Mo, my son, Liam is going to be 3 in 3 months!! He was born October 5th! I also have another son, Aiden, born August 23rd. Right now Liam is always going, talking pretty clearly, knows his whole alphabet (not the song, but can recognize the letters and is starting to actually teach himself to read words, which is pretty amazing to me) and can count almost to 20. He's been potty trained since just before he turned 2. He's super interested in electronics, computers and machinery and how things works. He's constantly surprising me with how detail oriented he is and how much he picks up by just watching my husband and me. He's a great big brother, though he doesn't really appreciate his little brother messing with his trains!



I'm a SAHM, a bit on the crunchy side. I'm working toward getting my certification to be a doula. I'm also a babywearing, extended breastfeeding, cloth diapering, homebirthing mama!

I am hoping to have her color's and numbers down next but am finding her need for learning is slowly fading I got lucky with the pacifier she threw it away at 8 months so that was easy as well now if only the rest could be as easy lol

Hello,
My name is Tara and Im the proud momma of two little girls who are both October babies. Ada is my 2007 baby and Nora is 2009.
Ada is such a shining star. I forget at time that she is only 2.5 yrs because she potty trained herself for the most part about 3 months ago. Her vocabulary grows more and more everyday and her imagination has definitely taken flight!

HI I'm Rachel i have a daughter that was born on the 27th. Her name is Daisie and i also have a 6 year old boy. My daughter is very smart for her age she knows her numbers 1-10 in english and in spanish. She also knows some of her letters havent got them down to well. She loves to play outside and with any type of animals not afraid of any. We go out to the farm where my mom and my son lives. I was only 16 when i had him so my mom takes care of him. They have a very good brother sister relationship with each other and know they have the same mom. I am 23 and live with my daughters dad we have been together for 5 years and plan on taking Daisie to Mexico at the end of the year so she can meet the rest of her family. Right now we are going through the stage where she wants to cry about everything when she doesn't get her way, any helpful hints on how to avoid that would be great.
