Yeah, it is my turn!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Yes, you remebered my name right. Thank you.<br><br>
do you like to cook? what are some of your favourite things to make?<br>
I am an avid cook. I actually was a trained chef before ds came around and I enjoy just cooking for fun now. I love to make cakes, but usually don't because I have no stop button when it comes to eating unfortunately.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: . So my favorite is baking, I find it very meditating. Cookingwise, I try to cook something different for dinner every night. Yesterday we have Indian dahl, before that we had Peruvian Quinoa Stew. My favorite cuisine is French, that is what I learned and know the most about. Yummy!!<br>
See, don't get me started on food<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
any pets?<br>
We have 4 cats, Bosse, Aidin, Louise and Zoe and two dogs, a giant German Shepherd named Tobey and an all mix named Luna. She is my first baby. i got her when she was only a day old and bottle fed her and her two siblings. The same with two of our cats. I was a foster parent for a shelter, but we stopped when ds came around, that was enough feedings around the clock<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
what are some of the thing you are most looking forward to about this baby/doing with this baby?<br>
Just to meet a whole new person. To see and learn the differences and similarities with her/his brother. To cuddle and love a newborn again that can't run away, yet<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> To enjoy breastfeeding again. It has gotten very difficult since I have become pregnant. To see my dh develop another wonderful relationship with a his child. Just to be, I guess!!!

I love to see my ds grow into his own little person. How he learns things and forms his own opinions, likes and dislikes. How he becomes more and more independant through these processes. I love to be hugged and kissed by him and how he snuggles up on me and to feel how much I am loved by this little guy.<br><br>
What are you greatest challenges as a mama?<br>
To be up when ds is up, no sleeping in and if he gets up in the middle of the night, i will be up, too. This is hard for me. To have lost my independence. I traveled and moved a lot, was out a lot, I don't even miss that so much, i just miss that I couldn't, even if I want to (makes sense?). To deal with ds's modd swings.

How did you and your dh meet? How long have you been together? What's your favorite memory with him?<br><br>
We met at a Lacrosse Party in Berlin, Germany. He was stationed over there. We had a long distance relationship while he was in Germany, even after we got married for two month. Then we moved in together in the States, BUT he was already deployed when I arrived<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. So we were already married for over a year when we fianlly lived in the same place. We met in the beginning of 2000 and have been marrried for almost 6 years now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br>
I have so many favorite memories with dh. How he looked at me when I walked down the aisle, when I picked him up after his first deployment, but I think the one that stands out the most is after ds was born and the midwives had left, we lied in bed, trying to sleep, but couldn't stop looking at ds who was sleeping in between us. And our eyes met over ds every now and then and there was so much love in the room, it was unbelievable!!!

Sounds good to me! Seriously, my dream is to go to culinary school some day. DH thinks I'm nuts, after all the years I spent in graduate school that I would even consider going to MORE SCHOOL. But it would be just for me, for fun, you know? Seriously, though, I think being really trained in how to cook is a huge gift.<br><br>
When you say you and DH met at a lacrosse party, do you mean lacrosse the sport? My DH played lacrosse--he was in season when I met him at the end of our senior year of college. He was such a gentle person in normal life--I remember standing on the sidelines of one of his games watching him beat on other people with a 6-foot long metal stick--I was so horrified. I was like, "Do I really want to be in a relationship with this man?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
OK, here's my question: What are you most confident about and most worried about in being a second-time mom?

Yeah, it was a lacrosse party for the sport. Dh still plays and also palyed over there. I still don't get all the rules, but it can get pretty brutal. I agree. Ds already has a little stick, something every 18 month old needs I guess<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> . So as soon as he hits five, he can try it. Hopefully he likes it, otherwise dh might be a little sad. It is the only sport, dh likes.<br><br>

I learned how to trust myself, even though everybody says do CIO, you can't do it otherwise. i know now it is possible. hard, but possible. And yes, one can carry a baby in the sling exclusively. You get the picture. I am confident we will get into a routine somehow and everything will work out.<br>
I am most worried about my time with each of the kids. Will I be able to give each of them what they need. i am really scared. Ds needs me a lot and right now he wants to be carried a lot again and I have no idea how to do that with another babe.

o, school is so much fun. i loved it in school. it is just horribly expensive unfortunately, but what you learn is amazing. I am sad that I have been losing some of my knowledge<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. I should really brush up on it sometimes.

This was supposed to be my first daughter's name, picked out years ago. When I was 7 months pregnant, we changed our mind to the name we still would be using if this is a girl. I suddenly just wasn't so excited about it any longer. So now it is my mdc identity<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I wondered because...I couldn't get the name out of my head the other day. I'm in girl baby name searching mode (although I think dh and I have settled), but I just could not get out of my head how beautiful the name Chiara Rose was. It stuck with me the whole day so I had to ask you why that was your mdc name since it clearly was not your name or a dd's name. Thanks for explaining! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
