Hello to all you with BIG families!

I tried joining a year or so ago....there was not much going on over here. I am back now though!

My name is Shelly, and DH is Shawn. We have been married for 18 years. We have eight children and one on the way. So a big total of nine come May. Two girls and six boys.

Hope to get to know you well!

Shelly

Mom to 8 and counting....

Welcome Shelly! How old are all your kiddos?

I am Rachel, married to my dh for almost 11yrs and mom to 4, not that large of a family, but still above the average, I guess. lol

Hi and Welcome!! I am Janae, married to Dh for 14 years. We have six boys and know that there is another baby for our family...just trying to talk myself into it (feeling very overwhelmed with it all right now), but would rather be done sooner than later.

Look forward to getting to know you!

I met you on June I think...but so neat to be sharing space with another expecting #9!! What was your break down again? I have 4 of each...this will be the tie breaker!!! I might make it exciting and not find out sex! Do you find out?

Shhh...I think Weston is my favorite of my kids first names Wink But I do love all their names as they all have special meaning to us. As of right now, baby is named Enchilada Wink My 3yo Weston named him. ROFL But other than that, we don't have any names. The only one that keeps popping up is Oakley, dh's grandpas middle name (but he went by it pretty exclusively) But not sure yet. And Thomas for a middle, after dh's dad and my paternal grandpa's middle name, since my dad made me promise to never name a kid after either of his names. But we are still going through name lists as we can't decide--lots of reasons we may not go with Oakley.

Our break down is 2 girls to 6 boys. I am thinking it will end up being boy #7 for us:0) We will see.....running out of good boy names though:confused:

4 and 4 huh? I can not imagine. How fun!
