~Getting to Know Our MayFlower Mommies~

MayFlower Mommies, please feel free to reply to this thread with a post telling something about yourself. If you'd like, also include a picture of yourself in the post. (We'd done this when we were pregnant, but we've a number of ladies join us since then. Also, our lives have definitely changed since then!)

Thanks,

Tommi

MY PHOTO:

Name: Nicole
Age: 27
SO/DH Name: Shawn
Age: 33
Children(s) Names & Ages: Allan Michael who is 7 (11.20.99) and Avryal Nycole who is 4 (5.6.03).

A little about ME:
I was born Phoenix Arizona but was raised in Grand Rapids Michigan from the age of 8 until I turned 20, when I then decided to move back to Phoenix to be closer to my sister and make up for the years we missed as kids (18yrs) and with my real father (13yrs). Been back in Arizona since 2001.
I am engaged to Shawn and have been for almost 5yrs , we got engaged the day we found out we were expecting Avryal September 13th, 2002. We were only together a month when we concieved her and she was planned we started everything very fast.
I enjoy webdesign and graphics (DUH! LOL) and I am a SAHM (stay at home mother) which I feel is the best thing for both my children right now as they both have health conditions that really need my attention.
I have been a member here at Pregnancy.org for almost 5 years, I joined September 18th, 2002. I am also the Signature & Graphics Assitant here at Pregnancy.org (AKA Siggy Police lol).

If you wanna know more about me feel free to PM me and I will include it here :).

My name is Kathleen (Kat) and my hubby is Michael. Mike is a programmer working for Aol broadband. I'm a stay at home mom, but I foster kitties (and have a few of my own). I enjoy photography and painting but I also love art in most forms. We were blessed with our first child, Jakob Ethan, on April 30, 2004 after 2 months of bedrest for preterm labor. I'm not here very often due to dh's wacky work hours, but I do try to keep up by reading at least. I always love to hear from anyone on AIM/Msn etc., though! I love my family, friends, and of course my kitties (I'm always seeming to find lil' strays).

Hi, my name is Tommi. My DH Brad and I have been married since October 2001. We're both 36. Both Brad and I have always lived in Pennsylvania. We feel very blessed, indeed, to have added a son to our family. To our surprise, Drew Wesley arrived three weeks early on April 17, 2003. Two days later, we returned home as a family of three. Our little guy has been the joy of our lives and is now the prince of the family!

On Valentine's Day 2005 we found out I was pregnant again. On October 25, our darling daughter Nora Elizabeth was born! We were then a happy family of four!

August 2006 ~ Much to our surprise, we found out we were working on #3 who was due on DS's birthday! However DD #2 decided she wanted her own birthday, and Lydia Hope decided to enter the world two weeks early on April 3.

We are now a very happy family of five!

Hey! I am Jailynn (28) married to Jamie (35) since April 21, 2001.

Our Mayflower Kylee Rayne arrived on her due date May 16, 2003 and is a sweet & strong willed baby doll! Kylee had a heart condition PFO which has closed on its own (although, it didn't close completely it is a small enough hole to not be of concern so she still has the murmur but doesn't have to take any precautions for the rest of her life.)

Our August Love Bug Kyrstin Renay was born a day after her due date August 31, 2005 and is as sweet and loving as her big sister. Kyrstin appears to be free and clear of any heart issues.

I'm now a SAHM which is a little weird for me but I love it!!! I don't think I could be any more blessed than I already am! Oh yea, we are in CA too Smile

Here's us Wink

Hello! My name is Pamela and I will be 32 in June. I got married on October 13, 2002 to Ian, who will be 33 :shock: in August! We have 3 kids: Sabreena Rose (born August 5, 2000), Madilynn Eve (born May 23, 2003), and Zackkery Scott (born October 11, 2005). Sabreena was from a previous relationship, but Ian has been 'daddy' to her since she was barely one years old. We live in Vancouver, WA...where we moved to in August 2004. I was born and raised in California (The San Fernando Valley...just North of Los Angeles) and we still visit there at least twice a year. I graduated from California State University, Northridge in June 2004...with a BA in Child & Family Development.

Ian is a Special Education Resource Teacher at a nearby school district and I am a SAHM. We were *surprised* to find out that I am pregnant again, due 7/27/07. Even though it was totally unplanned (I was on the pill), I believe that everything happens for a reason and I am beyond thrilled now. Besides my family, I love to take pictures, scrapbook, go to sporting events, drive long distances, and relax on the computer. My family is my life though! Biggrin

Thanks for letting me share!

My name is Christen, I'm 27. I'm married to Brad who is also 27. I'm originally from San Diego. My family moved to Mississippi when I was in 12th grade. After graduation I moved back to San Diego for a few years then got bored so I moved to Phoenix. I had my first child Amber while I was living there and I also met my first husband. After phoenix I moved to Eugene, OR then to Madison, WI (I've moved alot!!). While in Wisconsin I became a hairdresser. After a few years there I got a divorce and got back in touch with Brad. SO I packed up Amber and we moved back here to Mississippi. Brad and I got married June 15,2002 (also my birthday) and we now have Ally and I'm a stay at home mom but still do hair out of my house.
Kinda funny because Brad and I were together in highschool and when I gave him the whole "if you love me let me go"speech. We were eachothers first love! We eventually lost touch and didn't talk for almost 7 yrs!! A week after I filed my divorce papers from my first husband I got an email from Brad!! I knew it was meant to be after that!

Sorry if this all jumps around, I'm not to good at writing things! Biggrin

My info...

Hi all, my name is Jennifer and I am 30 years old. My husband's name is Leon (31). We have been married since September 7, 2002. Our son Aiden Alfred (after DH's great-grandfather) was born May 16, 2003 (his due date was June 2nd). He was a honeymoon baby! I have been part of Pregnancy.org since I was about 3 months pregnant. I do not post much because we have not had a computer at home for a little over a year. We finally got one so now I can keep up again! I have been lurking occasionally so I can keep up on how everyone is doing. I cannot believe that our children are almost all a year old, boy the time sure does fly! Hopefully I can get to know each of you a little better now that I have access to a computer at home!

Jennifer

My name is Michelle (Mattie) and I am 34, married to Andrew who is 32, since October 6, 2001. I am a nurse in a hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I also have a degree in social work and am a certified social worker. DH is a stage hypnotist who travels around the entire country quite a bit, going to colleges to do shows. He has a psychology degree and is also licensed to teach social studies in middle and high school. He is currently looking for a teaching job, but right now works full time teaching unemployed adults how to use computers and how to write resumes. He's sort of a computer teacher/unemployment counselor and he loves it. We have 2 beautiful boys and aren't planning to have any more of our own. We may adopt a needy child in the future if God happens to lead one to us. I can't find a picture of me that I like, so I'm just not going to include one yet. If I ever find one, I'll post it.

My name is Nicole I am 24. I am from Louisiana (still live here too) and I have three almost four children. I got engaged to John during my senior year and then we got pregnant a short time after that so we moved up the wedding and I got married before I graduated high school (big mistake but that's a different story). I had Jude in Sept of 1998 and then I had Jake in Sept of 2000. After alot of misery I finally left John the day after Christmas in 2001. I met Andrew (my husband now) in Jan of 2002 and after our first date I knew that he was the one I had been looking for all of my life. He proposed to me the day my divorce was final on May 23 and we were married on Aug 10 of 2002. Alexzander was born on May 21 of 2003 and now we are expecting #4 sometime in October of 2004. I am a SAHM and my dh is a Ag pilot.

We were a little slow on the getting hitched thing...LOL We have beautiful baby girl named Pamela Olivia. She was born May 8, 2003. We are going to start trying for another baby pretty soon...WOOHOO. I like the trying part better than the labor part. Oops was I supposed to say that. Oh well. I am a fun loving easy going person. I always speak my mind. Well I look forward to getting to know everyone a little better.

Well finally getting around to doing this so here goes:

I'm Michelle (Mish), I'm a 36 yr old (31 on Nov. 2nd) single mother of two boys. I'm currently living in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my handsome little men. Dylan was born 2/7/01 and is now almost 9 yrs of age. He was diagnosed with autism, apraxia (verbal and oral) and sensory processing disorder as well as epilepsy. He is now talking a blue streak and is quite obsessed about video games and is doing well in school. He recently had an eye exam and found out he has issues with astigmatism and needs glasses. Smile Brendon was born 5/21/03 and is 6 1/2 years of age. We are still waiting on appts. to the development clinic as Brendon has been followed by the infant sibling study since he was 6 months old and has traits of Asperger's Syndrome. Being on the Autism Spectrum seems the normal for my whole family. Smile Both boys are also asthmatic.

Pictures of the boys can be seen at this site as well (outdated as lost password):
http://img61.photobucket.com/albums/v186/MishLuvsHer2Boys/

As far as Pregnancy.org is concerned, I've been a member since Dec. 5th 2001 (since Dylan was 10 months old), I used to be co-host of the Autistic Spectrum Disorders board, Speech Delays and Disorders board and Parents of Kids born in 2001 board. I have hosted several others in the past.

I've been with this board since not long after getting pregnant with Brendon and love all the ladies on here, they are a great group for support and friendship. Smile

Hey! I haven't been here in a while...I finally got a new computer around Feb. after my old one died (my reason for not being around!). We're doing pretty good.
For those of you who don't know me, I joined pg.org when I was about 3 months pg, I'm 19 yo, I'm married to Chris, I'm now working full time as a nurses aide, and I'm trying to work towards becoming a nurse! I'm not going to school right now, but I'm going to start school again online hopefully within the next few weeks, work on an associates degree in psychology, and then transfer later to my old school, and finish nursing. Chris is doing well, he still works at an oil change place, not much to tell! Jason's doing good, too. We're getting ready for da-da's birthday in about a week.
This is Jason's Valentines day pic, the last pic of me that wasn't a side shot (Halloween '03), and sleepy Chris (I guess it is true, they look sweet when they're sleeping Blum 3 )
