Hi everyone,

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

Hi. My name is Shauna and I'm a first time mom to Kinsley, born on the 28th. I also have two wonderful step children ages 6 and 8. We have them for about 2 months in the summer and e/o holiday. I was recently laid off of work so as of right now i'm a stay at home mom and enjoying every moment I have with my daughter. She is very active and loves to laugh. She skipped crawling and went straight to walking at about 8 1/2 mo old. Now at 14mo she's running all over the place. Her favorite thing to say is WOW. My absolute favorite time with her is bed time, when she's curled up in the rocking chair with me and i'm reading her a bedtime story.

Hi,

I'm Laurie and I'm a first time mommy to my amazing triplets born Oct. 1st, 2008. Megan, Abby and Will. I'm a SAHM and I'm enjoying watching them grow. Will is walking everywhere, Abby has just recently started walking as well, Megan is cruising along furniture and should take off walking any day now. They all eat table foods and even started using spoons on their own (messy, but at least they get the spoon in their mouth! haha). They are also teething! All of their gums look so swollen in the back. They are all waving and pointing and mimicking mommy and daddy every day.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!!

Hi I'm Susie. I'm a mother of one to Mallory Jayne born October 27th 2008. I'm currently going to school full-time as well as work part-time and trying to be able to fit in every bit of free time into quality time with my daughter. She's an extremely stubborn, sweet little angel. She does what she wants when she wants. And will throw a gigantic fit if you try and get in the way. I'm trying to break her of this, but its tough. Shes 14mo and just barely took her first few steps yesterday on new years day! Hasnt walked again since!

Hi, i'm Renee, mum to Braidyn born 24/10/08. He was delivered via ceasarean finally after being induced 9 days over, head was too big and not move down far enough. He is an absolute cutie, very cheeky smile and knows when he is doing something wrong, even when doing it and shaking head "no"at us. He is very strong and strong willed. Takes up to 12 steps at a time now, although sometimes he will crawl cos it's faster. I work 3 days a week and my mum watches him two of those and my husband the other. Not much fuss when i get home but very excited when daddy does. Won't sleep in cot after 5.30am by himself but sleeps all night so thats great. All cupboards are locked and always moving furniture around so there are gaps he can't climb across!!!

Hi, my name is Kelly and my tots name is Joshua. He is my 1st child. I had him when I was 39 years old. I didn't think I was the mothering type and I thought I would not be a good mother, so I waited....and waited and then one day I just woke up and decided that there must be something about this baby thing everyone talks about. I've traveled the world, eaten good food in fantastic places and realized something was missing...Duh. Well now I know what all the fuss is about! To love someone so unconditionally is just amazing. Now that he is 14 months old, I am starting to hear a little whisper in my ear..a baby whisper. Oh no! We shall see...

Hello, everyone. My name is Crystal. I am a mother of four loving children. My youngest just turned 14 months on Monday, he was born on 10/14/08 and was the smallest of my children. I have a two year old daughter, a five year old daughter, and an eleven year old son. They keep me busy. I just started working Monday thru Friday last month instead of working three days out of the week since my husband lost his job last month. I am also taking two on-line classes in psychology so I can do what I have always wanted which is to help abused children overcome their abuse. I love children and have worked in Day Care since I was sixteen and still working at a Day Care today. My youngest child keeps me on my feet more than my other children and is into everything. He loves to say whats this, what, and now can say whats up. I don't know what it is with the word what but he likes saying it and seems to be his favorite word. He still hasn't gotten all his teeth in, and he is walking really good. Just learned yesterday how to climb on the rocking chair. So far that is the only new thing he has learned.

Hi. My name is Vanessa. I am a SAHM to two kids. My oldest daughter will be four in March and my little boy will be 14 months old tomorroll. He was born October 13 via unexpected c-section. Two weeks before he was born during a check up my doctor said he was head down so he didn't bother to check his position the next week because he was sure he was still head down. Well surprise, surprise I went into labor and the attending doctor checked my cervix, said she couldn't feel the head, gave me an ultrasound and baby was breech: ( so ended up with a c-section after having had a vaginal birth with my daughter. Was disappointed but truly didn't matter because I have a healthy little boy. Very happy little boy, not walking yet but did take two steps without support the other day. His molars are coming in though and hasn't been my happy little boy lately. :(

Hi! :) My name is Diana I am a first time mommy :) and I am SAHM, my October baby was born on 10/08/08 and we wanted to be surprised on the gender.....we had a baby boy; named him Gage and was 6lbs 12 oz. He is now walking all over and getting into EVERYTHING!!! I originally went back to work at 13 weeks and later resigned from my job when he was 9 months old. I couldn't stand having to pick him up from the sitters and she was the one who was enjoying some of his firsts, and I just missed him too much. Gage now has 4 teeth and I am still nursing him, he does eat table food, his fav is cheese puff and if he likes the food, he GRUNTS for more :) LOL

Hi, my name's Julie, I'm a single SAHM to 3. My 3rd and last baby is Daisy, she was born 5th Oct 08. She's hard work, but its so rewarding. She's not yet walking, but cruising well around the furniture. She's into everything, opening cupboards, drawers, takes all my books off the bookcases etc..Slowly learning the word No! She understands more than what she can actually say, although does say Ta now. She has an older brother and sister, and looks forward to when they get home from school, they are very good with her too. Daisy loves books and watching Peppa Pig, also dancing to music.

Jaylah is a very social, loveable 14 month old. She points to herself when you say her name, she furniture walks, attempts to walk on her own, babbles not stop.
She definetly lets you know when your attention is needed lol. She lights up my life. I love watching her smile a great big smile at me with her eight little chiclet teeth, or the many kisses I get from her.

Hello everyone, my name is Deanna and my Daughter, Madison was born on October 15, 2008, via c-section at 39.4 weeks. After trying for years to have a baby, we were finally Blessed and what a Miracle she is. We love her to pieces! She is my little social butterfly who LOVES to interract with everyone and anyone. If you happen to be at the grocery store and walking by, she'll wave and say "Hi!" to you. :) She just started walking a few days shy of turning 13 months and she absolutely loves the independance she gets from it. She talks up a storm and has quite a vocabulary and what a lover she is. The way she strokes my cheek, when she gives me kisses, when she hugs me...lets me know what a good job I'm doing. I love being a Mom!

Hello, my name is Ericka. I am a first time mother and got blessed with twins, my beautiful sons, Miles & Mason, who were born on the 11th. They both had to stay in the NICU for 5 weeks but didn't have any real complications that we weren't already aware of. Miles got dealt the lesser hand having to have Bilateral Hernia repair and a Right Nephrectomy (Kidney removal), but he is so much happier now that he has had the surgery and healthy as a horse! Mason has been good to go except for the small complication of a 104 fever last Sunday. Mason learned to walk at 8 1/2 months and Miles just mastered his due to the complication of the kidney.. Thank you for inviting us and would love to get to know everyone on here, so feel free to drop a post. :)

WOW that was sooo neat to read all the posts and see how varied each baby is and how different they all are as far as development and milestones, so neat.



Well I'm Rita, a WAHM which is the hardest thing to do, with a little one I never want to work =) I love photography, scrapbooking, reading and watching my baby grow. My baby is Marina Joy she was born on Oct 6th @ 32 weeks & was in the NICU for 10 days due to her size (4.5lbs), but overall healthy and beautiful. She struggled with reflux most of her 1st year and we weaned her off all meds finally at 12 months! She is the happiest baby ever and a true joy to everyone she meets.

Hi my name is Nikita and my baby girl's name is Paige, born on the 27th. shes walking and saying some words like dad, mum, fish, dog, and heaps of babbling. She is my world. she loves to eat pretty much anything! I'm so lucky! i do have problems trying to keep her hat or headbands, and shoes on. She has 7 teeth and just cutting the 8th, although i cant complain, shes not too bothered about it (touch wood!) I dont know many mums and bubs so hopefully this can help me out.

Hi everyone! My name is Misty, I'm 36 and a mother to 2. My October 2008 baby is Zoe Elizabeth and she was born on the 15th. I also have a 7 year old son, Parker, who is in 1st grade. Zoe has 8 teeth and currently working on 2 more. She has been walking since she was 8 months old. She talks up a storm and will tell you thank you when you give her something. She LOVES to follow her brother around and help him play with his tractors, even when he doesn't need it. Recently she has decided that she no longer needs to take a bath, she needs to take a shower. I guess she has decided it's time to be a big girl! Now if getting her off the bottle was that easy!

Hi Mommies!



I'm Kelly, first time mom to Cale Joseph who joined our family on my 27th birthday October 14th! I am currently staying at home and providing care for other children while I finish my bachelors degree. We are on all table food and would LOVE suggestions on how to get him to eat vegetables and working on tranistioning from bubbas to sippy cups. He loves to walk, read, climb and be chased. He has 6 teeth and has been sleeping through the night (10-12 hrs!) since about 8 wks. I love spending time with him and experiencing everything for the first time again with him!

Hi, I am Kristi, and I am a first time mommy to a beautiful son Christopher (who just turned a year on the 29th of Oct.) Christopher right now has two bottom teeth, but the two top ones have broken through, just not came all the way down yet. He walks, and gets into everything, waves bye-bye and gives kisses! Although he does not directly say words to anyone yet, he does babble a lot and his most used word is da-da. Christopher is 30" long and 22.6 pounds! =) Looking forward to chatting with all of you October 08' Mommy's as well!

Hey everyone!

My name is Keenan. The proud mommy to a beautiful baby boy who was born on the 31st of Oct. Yes, I am a first time mommy! And I love it. Definetly a new experience and can be challenging at times. But I am definetly up for advice and suggestions from other parents. I am new to the site. But im getting better aquainted with it. My lovebug is such a joy. Very active! He now stands on his own with no assistance. Feeds himself finger foods. Walks along holding onto furniture. Into everything at the moment! You name it..he is into it! He only has his two bottom teeth. He got them in at ten months. Now im just awaiting the arrival of the others. He loves to eat..and I think his weight proves it. Twenty five pounds! But I guess thats it. Cant wait to chit chat with mommys just like me!

Hi I'm Amanda and my little guy is Alex. He was born on the 12th. He is running around everywhere and giggles at everything. He loves cars and his new wagon. I swear he thinks he is a puppy since when he gives kisses he licks your face and he puts everything in his mouth. He loves books and learning how things work. He has been trying to talk up a storm lately and points at things he wants to get or know more about. He is getting so big it is so amazing that one year ago he was so tiny!

Hi, I'm Courtney. I am a first time mommy to Kaden Derek who's birthday is on the 9th. I work full time days, and my husband works full-time nights, so someone is pretty much always home with him. He is definitely his daddy's little side kick. He tries to copy everything he does. He's still not walking yet, but he's very close. He is, however, climbing on anything and everything.

Hi everyone, my name is Stephanie and I am a mother of two boys. The Oct. '08 baby is Sebastien and he was born on the 28th, by induction. He was like his older brother, just didn't wanna come out. LOL. I work part time and I go to school full time. My 3 1/2 yr old is in MMA classes and my soon-to-be 1 year old just rather be held then walk. He wants the comfortable life. It's amazing how they have these personalities and they are so little.



I love my babies and I would like more. Let's see.

Hi...My October 2008 baby is Lundyn, she was born 10 days early on October 28 at 9lbs 14oz...She is complete opposite of her big sister Ansley. Lundyn has her own fun personality & surprises me everyday. We were going to have her birthday party tomorrow but big sister who is 3 going on 30 is sick with a fever so I didnt want all the little ones around her. So we are just postponing the party a couple of weeks. I do work full time & take care of both my kids while my husband is out saving the world.
