  • Wedding: September 2013

I already have an 8 month old (I was married in september 2013) but I just want to say that for us, having our son was so incredible. You have so so much to look forward to! It’s not easy and sometimes I feel like I’ve never been this tired in my life (I’m a SAHM) but it is so incredible to see the joy and wonder in your child’s face. The smiles, the milestones, the excitement. Plus, in a way you get to relive your childhood! I say this as I put away Elmo and Pooh in the toy chest. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: October 2014

Daizy914:  We won’t be TTC for awhile, but I am also looking forward to starting the next chapter with Darling Husband and I. We just got married in October, and although I am enjoying our newlywed time – I am definitely itching to expand our family. Darling Husband is on another page, and until we’re in agreement… that is where it will stay. But, I am at a point in my life where I am ready to start a family, and have that be my focus. We’re both in our mid-30’s, so time is ticking!

I am looking forward tp his interactions with our child, whether it be a boy or a girl. He is so great with his nephews (4 under the age of 6), so I know he’ll be just as great with his own child. And then, just seeing the interaction with my parents. DH’s parents have the 4 boys, so if we end up having a girl – she will definitely be spoiled by each side of the family!

This is #2 for us. I can’t wait for little snuggles again. It’s also going to be fun to go back through all the milestones too.

  • Wedding: July 2014

We aren’t TTC yet, but are planning on starting this fall after a cross country move.  I think I’m most looking forward to being a family:  raising a child with my husband, family outings, and building our own family traditions.

Mine is 6 years old already so I don’t really fit in here. Just wanted to say that although I had an eventful and successful life before my son was born, once he came into my life I realized how meaningless it all seemed before him. Every single thing you do, whether it’s folding laundry or waking up for work, etc.. once you have a tiny little person depending on you, those things start to have a purpose. I can’t imagine my life without him. Every singe second of it is so much better now. I loves him and I still tear up about it lol <3

Darling Husband and I are both looking forward to this next chapter together… We were friends for 6 years first, and have been together for 10 years this June, so our July baby has cute (if accidental) timing as a slightly late 10-years-together anniversary gift ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m really excited to help and watch our little one learn and experience the world, and to take her on adventures with us.  As a librarian, one of my favorite things is helping people be excited about things and finding new information–so I’m looking forward to doing that on a new level as a SAHM!  

Darling Husband and I are also both excited about being kids again, and about sharing all our old favorites with our daughter. Hopefully she doesn’t hate everything we loved, haha!

  • Wedding: October 2015

Daizy914:  I don’t have any kids and won’t for a while. Husband and I just got married last month and are moving out from my parents in October. But we know we want them someday.

I’m most excited about supporting thier interests. I’m also going to enjoy family time and celebrating milestones (dinners and cooking together, birthday parties, good report cards, vacations – especially Disney!, etc).

The smaller things I am excited about is baby clothes (I saw this really cute girl outfit the other day with gray cat print pants and a pink top with a gray cat wearing glasses that said “Best Dressed” it was so cute! And a boy striped onsie with a stegasaurus on it awww), making my own baby food and seeing what they like and don’t like, and taking baby pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

Daizy914:  We have a cat who could have cared less about my son when we came. But when my niece was born, you would have thought the dog was her mother. The dog was so protective of her and used to lay down next to her and growl any time the doorbell rang. If she was in the pack n play or in her room he would get as close as possible and wouldn’t leave her even when called. It was so cute.

Daizy914:  To be honest, I’m really torn about the Stay-At-Home Mom business–but my job was long hours and a crazy commute and a toxic environment, and daycares around us are so expensive that my salary would only cover the cost of daycare plus my commute…so it didn’t make much sense for me to stay. It’s really difficult for me to think about giving up that professional part of myself AND finances are going to be super tight. I really wish it made sense for me to keep working.  I’m planning to look for part-time evening/weekend work so I can help financially, and also to keep my hand in professionally (and my brain functioning!).  I am trying to psych myself up to be positive about it, so I keep talking it up to myself, though. My mom was a Stay-At-Home Mom with me and my brother and I really feel like she helped foster our love of learning, so I’m hoping I can do that for our daughter.

Daizy914:  I have an 8 month old and we are expecting our second child. I am so excited to finally see what my complete family looks like (we aren’t having any more after this). I know that seems weird but years ago, I decided that I wanted to get married and have kids and I’m excited to see what my kids will look like! I have a beautiful daughter and I’m excited to see how she interacts with her sibling. I’m an only child so this sibling thing will be new to me and I’m excited to see how they get along, what they fight over, what they help each other get through…things like that.

I’m also excited to teach them things like morals, values, life lessons, ethics. I’m excited to watch them grow and develop. The one thing I will do differently with this baby that I didn’t do with my daughter is videotape the early weeks. We didn’t do that. We just took pictures but I wish we had more video.
