Welcome to the August 2012 Due Date Club! Right now, it's the end of November 2011, so there probably aren't a lot of people who know yet if they're pregnant with an August '12 baby, but here's to hoping that picks up soon!
Anyway, my name is Aimee, and I am mama to Cecilia, who was born in April of 2010. She'll be about 27-28 months when the newb comes next summer. I can't wait for her to be a big sister!! I got my BFP on my 33rd birthday (November 23), and I couldn't be more excited!!
As for us, we're a happy little family living in the desert (that part isn't what makes us happy, though). We're surrounded by lots of family on both sides, and we feel so lucky that our kids get to grow up with their cousins! We are pretty natural-minded folks in many ways, though I would put us in the middle of the "crunchy spectrum." We practice co-sleeping, extended rear-facing, extended breastfeeding (still going now, though some days I want to crawl out of my skin. It feels like nails on a chalkboard!), natural family planning, eating locally and organically grown food, minimizing processed stuff (Trader Joe's frozen foods are about the most processed stuff we eat), and respecting the environment.
My husband works for a major software company as a data analyst, which sounds dreadfully boring to me, but he loves his job. He's good with numbers! I used to work for the same company, but I left to stay home with Cecilia. I love being home with her! Currently I also nanny part-time for my 4 month old niece.
Anyway, that's good enough for now, I imagine! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone in here!!!
