Hi everyone,

I'm Clare, breastfeeding, cosleeping, babywearing Mum to Georgia who is just 2.
I just moved to Goodyear, Arizona from England and I'll be here for five months.
I would really love to meet likeminded parents from nearby if there are any here as we're feeling pretty lonely right now.
My husband is out here with me training to be a pilot so he's busy and we've just got to get on and build a life for this time.
If anyone has any suggestions of places to go or things to do round here that would be wonderful too. Goodyear is on the west side of Phoenix.
Thanks so much and looking forwards to getting to know you all on the forums as well,
Clare and Georgia

Oh wow, what a time of year to move to AZ! We are doing the same thing though. We are in Alaska moving down to Tempe next week! We lived there for about a year and our DD was born there. I had a great midwife and she will deliver our little bean arriving in March, as well. We are going to be there for 2 years, as i start nursing school this fall and wont' be done for 2 years. Welcome and I hope the heat doesn't bother you too much!

CPST & mom

Welcome to MDC! I'm sure you're going to love it here!

I used to live in Phoenix and I know there are plenty of wonderful mama's around... I'm sure you'll love your time there (if you don't melt from the heat first)!

Welcome to AZ! Check out the yahoo group "azmamas" if you want to make local connections.
