    I've seen quite a few new names on here lately, so just for fun...

    1.  Your kids names? Ages?  Connor, will be 4 next month. Expecting #2 in Feb.

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  I am a 2nd grade teacher

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? Seeing DS learn new things and just enjoy life.

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing? Behavior issues! We have a very stubborn, hot-headed kid who will go into full meltdown mode over the smallest things sometimes.

    5.  Part of town you live in? Spring/Woodlands

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) He just says the funniest things and has his own rationalization for everything. Today his thumb hurt because I wouldn't let him play on the computer. :)  His daycare teacher told me he was one of the 2 brightest kids in the class, even though he's one of the younger ones.

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself. Before I became a teacher, I worked in tv programming for the local PBS station.

    Not a lurker, but I'll play too!1.  Your kids names? Ages?  Amelia - 3.5 years, Juliet - 11 months2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  Both, I SAH with my kids and own my own business
    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? knowing that my children know they're loved and cherished...that's even better than being loved back.4.  Least favorite or most trying thing? tantrums 5.  Part of town you live in? NW (Spring)6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) My kids are super smart (no, I'm not just biased) and Amelia amazes me with her creativity and the things she comes up with.  7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself.  I have a crazy insane fear of....cotton balls.  They make me cringe, it's awful.

    1.  Your kids names? Ages? Cooper, 17 months today.

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  I'm a historian, I work for a publications project at a university but I'm not a professor.  I don't teach, just research and write.  Occasionally I guest lecture but I kind of hate it, I'm working on making myself do it more and hate it less.  Big Smile

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom?  Watching him learn.  It's amazing how quickly he is picking up new words now, I guess it's time to clean up my language!  I also just love seeing what he's interested in, and seeing his personality develop, see who he is becoming. 

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing?  Oh that's a tie between the lack of sleep and the tantrums. 

    5.  Part of town you live in?  Spring Branch, near Memorial City Mall

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever)  He says 30 some-odd words now, one of his favorites is "cool" he says it when you give him something he wants, makes me laugh every time.   He's obsessed with books and signs "book" and "read" while shouting "Eeeed!"  And if you don't stop what you're doing and read to him he smacks you with the book.  That cracks me up too.  He's just a funny kid. 

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself.  Before I was a historian I was an archaeologist, I switched fields because I didn't really like living in a tent.  Now I kind of miss it.   I used to get stopped by the border patrol all the time though when I worked out in W. Texas, I guess young women w/ a truck full of shovels and a week's supply of water is a little unusual.  Stick out tongue

    1.  Your kids names? Ages? 
    Dylan - 18 months,  Braylon - 4 months

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do? 
    I work 30 hours a week as a programmer

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom?
    The love for my kids.  Watching them grow up and enjoying life.  Watching my two kids interact with each other and my older son enjoying being with his baby brother.  I can only imagine this will only get better (and worse in some ways when they fight).

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing?
    Right now, it's lack of sleep/lots of crying with the infant and temper tantrums with the toddler. 

    5.  Part of town you live in?
    Clear Lake

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever)
    Dylan is so smart and sweet.  He loves to be held and cuddled, loves to read books and learning what things are (he goes around and points - "what's that?"), he's learning new words every day it seems.  He loves his baby brother and likes to sit next to him and hold his hand and just generally loves life.  He's usually very well behaved too and listens well.  Braylon loves watching Dylan and everything going on around him.  Seeing him smile and Dylan and their interactions are the best.

    After 2 years and 6 IUIs, we did it with IVF w/ ICSI!
    BFP with no treatment!

    1.  Your kids names? Ages? Bri (11), Kairi (8), Charis and Jocelyn (7&7), and Xander (4)

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  I am a WAHM. I am a birth doula, childbirth educator, author, and mw apprentice

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? watching them grow into able-bodied, confident, competent young mini-adults.

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing?  They always seem to have more energy than me! :)

    5.  Part of town you live in? south of Houston

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) my 11 year old? She sings Sarah Brightman and Pavarotti, reads at a 10th grade level, loves placentas and childbirth, and wants to be a midwife.

    My 8 year old is amazingly intuitive, a deep thinker, soft spoken, and one of the most empathetic people you will ever meet.

    Charis is our dramatic dreamer. She wants to open a restaurant and 'take care of people' by cooking for them. She is always asking to work in the kitchen and has an amazingly adult palate.

    Jocelyn can do anything athletic the first time. 4 years old? Hops on a bicycle for the first time with no training wheels, never falls. We tell her how to do a back hand-spring. She nails it the firs time. Fearlessly able-bodied.

    And little Xander, a lover, not a fighter. He is a protector through and through. Would rather snuggle than wrestle, but defended his sister against a boy twice his age at the playground.

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself. I am a wonder-bread hippy. I have tattoos, piercings, wear stilettos and ripped jeans, like a nice cabernet and bri en croute... but I also strive for organic, holistic, conscious AP living, semi-raw lifestyle with vegetarian inclinations, have been to the doctor once in the last 6 years, and am an extroverted pacifist.

    I'm not a lurker, but oh well :) 

    I've seen quite a few new names on here lately, so just for fun...

    1.  Your kids names? Ages?  Charlotte, 3 years old

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  SAHM part-time (two days a week); the other three days I run my home organizing business and am a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts.  These days, my business is on hiatus while I help my mom with my dad's estate.

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom?  The affection I get from Charlotte.  She's so sweet (well, when she wants to be).

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing?  The three year old attitude/tantrums.  Oh, the tantrums...

    5.  Part of town you live in?  Just moved over to Memorial area. 

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) She's freaking smart and says things that I don't know how she knows.  She also speaks on the level of a 5 or 6 year old kid, so she's really easy to communicate with and has been since she started talking.  

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself.  I'm a huge fan of hip hop music and dance, and it's my favorite style of dance (ie, I do not dance like a stereotypical "white girl").  People are usually shocked when they find out I'm a hip hop dancer. I used to be a dancer on the Planet Funk team, and used to take classes there religiously b/c it's the only true hip hop studio I've been able to find in Houston.  I've always dreamt of being a dancer in a hip hop music video...I miss dancing :(

    1.  Your kids names? Ages? Truitt, 4 and Mathis, 2

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  Technically I am a SAHM but more like a mom who doesn't work since my kids are both in school from 8:30-3:30

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? Watching them grow and learn new things. Seeing how they are like or unlike me and DH. Watching them grow as siblings and friends has really been special.

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing? Lack of me time. This is why they are in school. I am not really cut out to be a SAHM but it's also what's best for us with no family here as back up or relief. I have always been the kind of person who needs a good chunk of me time to decompress or I am miserable to be around!

    5.  Part of town you live in? The Heights

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever)

    Truitt is an amazing big brother. He is about as kind and loving as a 4yo can get. The best is how much he loves to teach his brother, explaining new concepts and helping him to learn.

     Mathis is too cute for words. The blue eyes, the dimples. He is f.u.n.n.y. and such a mama's boy. I can't wait for the major development that happens in this 3rd year of life. 

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself.

    As much as I like my time away from my kids, I can't wait for us to spend 3 weeks together in my hometown. It's going to be an awesome time (and I think we'll all be ready for them to go back to summer session when we return). I'm also a Sagittarius.

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  SAHM. In my former life I was a bookkeeper.

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? Hugs and kisses from my kids (well kid, one of them just lays there like a lump for now lol). Seeing him do something that I taught him, without my prompting. He says please and thank you and yes sir/no sir and it makes me so so proud!

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing? Potty training. Knowing that I'm not going to sleep through the night again for at least another 18 years.

    5.  Part of town you live in? Southwest

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) B is such a snuggly, smooshy, adorable hunk of love I can't stand it. And G loves his Momma more than anyone else and I could just kiss his face off. And they're both crazy cute.

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself. I can play a mean game of Just Dance on the Wii. Ask Harmony =)

    1.  Your kids names? Ages? Elena, 15 months.

    2.  Are you a SAHM or if you work what do you do?  PhD candidate at UH. Although I don't work DD goes to daycare so that I can finish my dissertation (sigh) 

    3.  Favorite thing about being a mom? Seeing DD achieve little milestones, and how things that I can do without thinking twice are in fact very complex. When I see the whole process of learning to move, to roll, to crawl, to walk, I feel in awe at the complexity and wonder of the human body.

    4.  Least favorite or most trying thing? She still wakes up around 1:30 or 2:00 am and only a bottle of warm whole milk would do. 2%, 1%, or fat free milk do not work, and she'll scream her lungs out if we try to dilute the whole milk with water.

    5.  Part of town you live in? East downtown

    6.  #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) Elena is a natural ballerina. When she moves, it is a thing of beauty. She rolls, crawls, walks with a lot of grace.  People at daycare, and friends, and family also have noticed this.

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself. We are from Colombia, lived in England for a few years, and moved here because of DHs work. I'm originally a biologist and now I'm getting a doctorate in management.

    Finley,  Almost 3 weeks old.

    Right now I SAH but will be going back 2 days a week...short ones.

    I love everything about being her Mom right now.

    Can't say that there is anything trying right now in my eyes. I am just so grateful to have a healthy baby. My pregnancy was very hard and we did not know if she would make it at one point.

    We live in the south east side of town.

    I'm not on my computes so I have no picture. She is in my siggy though :)

    I've always wanted to be a SAHM and am pretty excited that I pretty much get to have my cake and eat it too since I also love my job. We have worked it out that she won't have to go to daycare on those two days I will work.

    6. #1 reason your kid is awesome (go ahead and brag, post a picture, whatever) He is so smart and clever. He asks to touch things and holds out 1 finger. He is a little mimic and tries to repeat most things we say. Like last night after he threw some food he said, "not nice."

    7. Tell us something interesting about yourself. I hate shopping for clothes and shoes. I guess that is a good thing for our budget, but I also never seem to have things to wear.  :-)

    7.  Tell us something interesting about yourself. I've been with DH for almost 7 years. I'm a college student but I took a break this spring semester off because I had my daughter two weeks early before my EDD and I decided to take the summer semester off because I'm still trying to balance everything out. I'm hoping to be done with community college and get my Associates of Arts in Education by next year and then transferring to UH to get my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies so I can be a teacher. It will be a few years till then but I'm hoping to knock it out soon because I've been in school on and off since 2004.

    I'm really late to this but thought I'd start joining in on posting more.

    1.  Mia 2.5 years, Audrey 9 months.

    2.  I'm a SAHM

    3.  Getting to spend so much time with my kids and seeing them grow up.

    4.  There are no breaks/days off/vacations from this job :P

    5.  Energy Cooridor

    6.  Mia is awesome because she is a mini version of me (so I have been told) and thinks she knows it all, yet is so loving and cuddly.  She knows when you are sad and comes over and asks if you are okay and gives hugs.  Audrey is awesome because she  is the sweetest, most easygoing baby.  Mia was never easygoing and people will forget Audrey is in the room because of how Mia keeps the attention on herself.

    7.  I moved here from Seattle but I'm originally from NY.  I'm a huge Arizona Wildcats fan (my alma mater) and love the Yankees, Giants (football) and no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get into the Houston pro teams.
