Hi everyone,

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

I'm Rebecca and I had my first son, Nate on August 21. He was a surprise since we were told we couldn't get pregnant without medical intervention. ;) I didn't even find out I was pregnant until the middle of January.



He seems to be surprising all of our friends and family by the things he can do! He has been able to hold up his head since the minute he was born (two weeks early, and face-up, the little booger), and can roll over back-to-tummy and tummy-to-back on occasion. He tries to stand whenever he gets the chance, and tries to walk if you hold his hands and keep his balance for him. He hasn't figured out crawling yet, though he sure does try!



Our biggest challenge by far is getting him to sleep. He seems worried he's going to miss something and throws a holy fit when he's tired because he doesn't want to go to sleep.



Besides taking care of Nate, I read, knit, crochet, and enjoy doing graphic work on the computer. Of course, all of these things are "when I get the rare chance"!

Hi everyone!

My name is Paula and I had my second daughter, Kristin, on the 5th August - right on her due date! She weighed 9lb 6oz and was 54cm long. It was a rocky start as she did not breathe on her own when she was born and needed to be resuscitated. She also had low blood sugar levels and an infection from my waters being absent some time before I went into labour (didn't know this!)

She started smiling at 4 weeks and 1 day and has been really good at holding her head up from birth.

Look forward to hearing all about you all and your gorgeous babies!

Hi, I'm Edith. I have four kids, 3 boys and 1 girl. Born between 2006 and 2011. My August 2009 child is my third 😊. His name is Joachim. He's the only blond one of the bunch. He is doing very well, despite needing supplumental growth hormone (daily injection) and having a (non-related) 2 1/2 inch cyste in his head. He is very active and loves roleplaying. Would love to learn more about all of you!

Hi, My name is Holly Stonebraker. I have 4 boys...Yes, I'm serious lol. My 4th baby-Alex was born on August 27, 2009 and he has proven to be the most fearless of the four with his first set of stitches just about 3 weeks ago. I reluctantly admit I did want a girl really bad, but quickly realized I was built for boys (they keep things simple) and my Alex is the biggest cuddle bug. I couldn't imagine life without him or any of them for that matter.

Hello, all!



My name is Terrah, and I had my first child, Miles, on August 30, 2009.



For 9 months, we were told that Miles was a girl, and we planned to name him Lucy. I had a ladybug-themed nursery ready to go, all the pink clothes were washed, and then ... TA-DA! The doctor said, "I see a testicle. You have a boy."



Our lives have never been the same, and we wouldn't change a thing!

Hi, I am Nicole and my daughter Brailyn was born on August 31st 2009. She has always been such a good baby and made being a mom so easy which is probably why I love being a mom so much. I just had a 2nd daughter in September and want to try for a boy in a couple of years. I love taking her outside and playing with her. She loves to dance, has the best smile and we love her so so much!

Hi my name is Berjoh, I am 27 , married, and have a stepson 7 and my first child 1. I love being a mom, I love shopping, going out to eat, catching a movie, and lounges. Right now my little one is going through the phase of wanting to do a lot with her hands. She loves to draw. She also sings, its so funny, you can't understand the words but you know shes singing. She loves to dance too. She has so much more rhythm than mommy.

Hi, My name is Danita.
Our first child, Maelynn Ray was born 8/12/09. She came 3 wks early but she was healthy at 4lbs 13oz and 18in long.

She is a joy in my husband and my life. We had a hard time getting pregnant and we definitely wouldn't change a thing about the miracle God has given us!

Her challenges so far was gaining weight, she is one pediasure and she has had fun at every meal throwing most of her food if not all onto the floor. I do get lucky sometimes on occasion when she feels like eatting everything. 15 months and she is only 20lbs.

She is enjoying walking and running around and her new thing is giving Kisses!

Grace McKenna was born 8/19/09 and she is our 1st girl, but our 3rd and final child!

She's always up to no good or bossing the boys around. She's a chatterbox (much different than her brothers!)! She's a healthy eater, but I may have just jinxed myself!

She is our little princess!

Hi my name is Jo and i had my daughter Ella on 14 August 2009. Ella is a very determined and independent little girl. She has been pushing the boundaries on what she can get away with for the last 6 months. We are walking (almost running), talking (a few important words) and making really strange noises. The thing that gets me the most is the fact that she grinds her 5 teeth already. I can't stand it.
