Hello!

I am new to MDC and just wanted to get to know all of the other LDS momma's on this board. I am also a member of DS and of a yahoo LDS group for natural mama's.

Tell me about yourself!!

Okay, so here is me.

I am 25 and have been married to my husband for 4 years. We have one daughter together named Camden and she just turned 2 on Christmas Eve. I also have a step-daughter named Mikayla who will turn 7 in February. We recently moved to the Tri-Cities in Eastern Washington and am still trying to get to know the area and people.

I joined the Church in 2002 after investigating it for a little over a year. All of my husbands family is LDS and I am the only member in my family. My husband was inactive until recently and he is just now trying to reactivate himself though he is struggling in some areas.

I am still nursing my daughter and I don't know if she will be ready to wean anytime soon. No one else in the family has nurse this long so we choose not to bring it up whenever possible. I use cloth diapers. I am an AP momma. We co-slept until she was about 20 months and now she sleeps in her own room but I still lay down with her until she falls asleep.

Hmmmmm. I can't think of anything else...

I hope it works for you soon . I am LDS in Missouri and I teach a CTR-8 class . *waves* . Which reminds me, I haven't kept up with the offical LDS thread. I could open it though, so maybe it was a server glitch?

I'm brand new to the board today, and I'm LDS as well. I can't open that other thread either.

How nice that your DH's grandfather is Joseph Wirthlin (and I'm sure we all know his middle initial, too!). He seems like such a gentle man.

I'm currently Gospel Doctrine teacher, graduated from BYU (in 02, if anyone was there about that time) and sorta missing the west coast as of now. Glad to meet you all.

I'm a new LDS member. I was baptized in Feb 2006. My DH's entire family is LDS, but I am the only member in my family.

We have been married 4 years and are expecting our first child Jan 20th.

Nice to see y'all.

That's weird, but I guess it just means I'll have to start typing away! Off to find something to respond to...

Things are hopping on this thread. And sometimes it takes a day or so before your member status "takes." Looking forward to hearing from you!

Well, I found out you also have to be a member for 60 days. That's what is holding me up.

I'm a 22 year old SAHM to Magnus (2) and Cambria (6 months). DH and I got married in the Oakland Temple and we've been married for just over 3 years. We just moved to new Jersey and we really like it here. We don't like the cold though (we're both from CA) so I think we'll probably end up back there at some point. We both went to BYU, but I had a baby and we had to move before I could finish, so I'm looking at finishing out here when Cambria is a little older. I look forward to hearing more from all of you!

Kristen, we actually had to go get our birth certificate back because at 3 days old I just couldn't stick with "Noah James"! Luckily it hadn't gotten processed yet.

It seems like all the LDS mommies moved recently. I am not yet to 50 posts or 60 days, so I will just say hi here. Married 4 1/2 years, have 1yo DD, now in Colorado.
