I'm a Lisa too! And I'll be 40 in October 07. I have 4 children- Grier (14), Taliesin (11), Trey (8 and 1/2), and Wyatt(1)- 2 girls and 2 boys. My husband is a corrections officer (I used to be also- that's how we met). My last job was as an executive director of a program that worked with parolees...the program moved and I wasn't willing to commute when I had a 6month old baby at home- so I became a WAHM :) I'm happy to meet you all!
I'm Sabrina, just turned 28 this past Wed. I've been married to my great DH Jeff for almost 10 years. We are high school sweethearts as well. :D We have 5 amazing kiddos, pretty sure we're done but haven't done anything perm. just yet. Kids are~
Taylor~ We call him our little "Michael Keaton"(remember the show Family Ties? LOL) He's a major perfectionist and quite hard headed (no clue where he gets that from...LOL). He always finds the good in things and is amazing at building things. He's 9, will be 10 in Jan.
Riley~ He's my sports kid. He loves any kind of rough play, tends to be the instigater in the fights between the boys. He has an amazing love for the outdoors and amazes me how he proves you can have brains and muscles... I see him one day being on the football team getting straight A's. He's 5 will be 6 in April. He started kindergarten a few weeks ago.
Landen~ He's our miracle baby. We nearly lost him at 8 weeks old after fighting for 3 weeks with our old family dr. telling him something was wrong. I finally won the battle and he got an upper GI done, then was rushed for emergency surgery an hour later due to a malrotation of the bowels with 2 obstructions and stragulation of the bowels. He's such a lover. If I'm upset, he'll be the first one at my side with his arms wide open. He loves to be praised...oh lord he just lights up when he knows he's please mom or dad, even for something as little as throwing something away. Every day I look at him, and thank god for our miracle...I know he'll be involved in someone else's miracle someday. He's 3 will be 4 in Feb.
Abby~ Oy! First girl after 3 boys...and she loves to make known that fact...she has the attitude of a 13 year old, with the physical capabilities of a 2 year old. She's fisty....but she's gentle. Not shy in the least bit. A stranger walks in and says hello to her and the first thing she does is open her arms and demand a hug! LOL She loves her brothers and sometimes I swear she thinks she's a boy. She'll be 2 on Sept. 23rd.
Julia~ She's just our over all sweetheart. Of course she's only 2 months old so she's at that point that you swear they could never do anything wrong! LOL I'm enjoying her as much as I can since she most likely will be my last. It's sad, but happy at the same time. We have so many plans for our kids in the future...I look into her eyes and know she's our last. She just started really smiling within the last week or so, and oh I forgot how much it just melts your heart to have this human being that knows your face, and that smile lets you know that they know you are everything to them.
Sorry I'm so late in putting this here...I ummm actually didn't notice it before. I get in such a hurry to post in my "free" time that I get ahead of myself. I found this board about a year ago, didn't become a real active poster until recently. :D
HI I am Kati, I know some of you from other boards so "HI" again. I have 4 kids, 3 in the past year:
Britanie Anastasia- 5
Hailey Grace-14 months
Avery Taylor-14 months
Savannah Mackenzie- almost 3 months
We live in Utah, but are about to move to North Dakota. I am 25, and think I am done having kids. Dh is 35, and he says he is VERY done having kids unless we will 110% have a boy. 4 girls is enough for this macho man. I have pics that you can see on my dropshots. http://www.dropshots.com/katifarmer
I come from a family of 7 kids and DH mark comes from a family of 6 kids. Its a lot of fun, but a lot of work! I love it!
Good to meet all of you!

Hi! I'm Kara, 28 married to the best DH in the world, Jeff, 34. We have the his, hers, and ours going on. Combined we have 4 kids. My DSS, Tim, 14, DSD, Shelbie, 12, DD Emily, 8, DSD Elayna, 7. We also have one on the way. Tim and Emily live with us full time, and Shelbie and Elayna come over every other weekend.
I currently am a paralegal at large defensive firm. Not my dream job for sure. My dream & goal, like Kristina, is to become a doula, and be a L&D nurse.
Hi, my name is Jan and I am a mother of 4 beautiful children- Adam (May/98, Nicole (Jan/00), Josh (Jan/04) and Char(Nov/06).
I have been married to Rich for 10 years and live in Manitoba, Canada. I love having a large family as my dh has no brothers or sisters that we know of (he was adopted), and I have one brother who has no children (and won't), so we are it!! Although sometimes it is crazy, it makes for better Christmases, birthdays, and trips and I wouldn't have it any other way!
My name is Kris and I am a SAHM to 3 boys. My littlest is only 6 weeks but DH an I are already talking about TTC #4 in 5 months or so. A little girl would be nice. My boys are William age 6, AJ age 2, and Donovan is 6 weeks. DH is Hector and he is the love of my life. Looking forward to getting to know you all.
WOW- An update after all this time. I am now the mommy of 4 little boys. Seriously thinking about #5 soon. Still think a little girl would be nice. We shall see.
