@Bao: Thanks! And thanks for posting a closer photo of your LO - I love her cheeky little smile! She's just darling!
@travelgirl1: Love all that hair! DD had that much hair as a newborn as well and I couldn't keep my hands off it! It was just so silky and soft... it was bliss to run my hands through it. Now that she's 5 months, it's still super soft, but it's lost the newborn silkiness, so enjoy it whilst you can!

I have been on HB for a while (since in beta I think), and was semi-active on the pregnancy boards on WB before that. I am 27, DH and I just celebrated our first anniversary on Monday, and we have a super sweet almost 7 month old daughter! I am a SAHM for now, with hopes to teach when DD is school aged. We live on beautiful Cape Cod where we both grew up. Here's a picture of our sweet girl, Penny!

Hi! I'm Heather, formerly Heatherloveskenny on WB and here. I changed my name recently though. I was on the WB for about two years until I fully switched over here.
I have a 3 year old son and a 6 month old daughter and I stay at home with them while my husband works crazy hours.
Ahh my picture didn't show up, one more try!
@HLK208: Oh my goodness, the cuteness of your kids is killing me! Your DS has the sweetest face, I bet he is a great big brother, and E is just so darn cute! Look at all of her blond hair - love it!

love this thread!! It's good to have an updated one every now and then.
I am Mrs. Pen - formerly Coco Bee. Been on Hellobee since Cobi was born at the end of February..
I'm a SAHM and DH is a math professor. We live in Minnesota, though DH grew up in New York and that's where we met. I want to go back to school soon and try to get into the nursing program and hopefully finish and work for a little while before TTC #2.
We eat paleo style - no refined sugar and hardly any grains. I am a pretty "crunchy" or natural mama.
I LOVE being a blogger, seriously I've wanted to do it for awhile and I'm SO excited. I love to write and always have.
Here's my little family

Hi everyone! I've been a member for a year, but took a long break as I was far from trying to get pregnant. I am very active on WB (hostess) but am feeling more suited for this website now. DH and I are feeling comfortable and ready to take the next step - I'm back. I am currently facing some infertility issues, but hope to be getting it resolved sooner than later.
DH is 29 and I'm 24. DH feels like he's getting old (his clock must be ticking =P) and is ready to start a family as soon as possible. I currently work full time at a hospital and he is a plumber. We're on opposite schedules at this time, but making it work somehow!
I've always dreamed about being a SAHM and hope that it's possible when our family is finally started.
Love putting faces with names and seeing such gorgeous babies. =)
@Mrs. Pen: You are so pretty! Adorable family too.
@HLK208: oh my gosh look at those kiddos! too cute
@Bao: you are so sweet! Thank you!
Oh and we're the same age I am 23 as well.

I love these threads. I'm a 27 year old mom of one beautiful little 8.5 month old girl DH and I have been together for 9 years, and just celebrated our second wedding anniversary last weekend. We live in the southern most part of Canada in the bottom of Ontario in the sleepy little town where I grew up. We have 2 crazy boxers who are alomst as needy as our baby girl. I'm currently in the last stretch of my maternity leave and have recently been thinking about when we should start trying for #2.
@Pumpkinspice: I was wondering where you went!! guess you just changed you UN on us
@prettylizy: Your daughter is beautiful!

I'm a 24 year old 2nd grade teacher and my husband is a 24 year old grad student getting his PhD in History. We are high school sweethearts and got married in July. We live in Texas and have two dogs but no babies. Currently we are not TTC because he's in school but I'm hoping within the next year or two to start trying. I was a member of WB before I signed up here about a year ago. I'm a lurker and only started posting here recently. My goal is to be more active on here even though we aren't TTC!
@Boopers: Yay, welcome! Hopefully we see more of you around

I've been a lurker but thought I should introduce myself. I also came over from WB. We've been married for 2.5 years and we'll begin TTC in the spring. I wish it could be sooner. I can't wait!
@Bao: Thanks I think we'll keep her lol!!
@hazelnut: I'm glad you introduced yourself, welcome!

Hi! I've been on HB for about 6 months and don't think I ever introduced myself. I'm 29 and DH is 32. We are high school sweethearts and will have been together for 14 years (married for 5) when we have our first baby (a boy!) in the next few weeks. I work in hotel sales and DH is in the journalism field. I am very involved in dog rescue, am a self-proclaimed coupon-crazy-lady, and a serious homebody. Here's a pic of DH and I at our shower last month. Can't wait to finally be able to share a pic with our LO in it too very soon!

I'm a 28 year old, mom of 1. My LO, Baylen, was born back in August and is just shy of being 4 months old (so crazy how quickly it flies by!!).
My DH and I have been married for 3 years now, and have known each other since my freshman year in college (I was dating one of his best friends before I met him...oops!).
I'm currently a SAHM, but I have my Master's in Environmental Science and would love to have a "dream job" someday...but staying home with my baby is also pretty perfect.
We live in NH, where unfortunately we have no family and I don't have many close friends, but that's ok for the most part as we love the area. We also have 3 cats and a dog (which most days now drives me nuts!).
Here's a pic of DH, LO, and me from a month or so ago!

I'm jumping in! I'm not sure I have done a formal introduction either. I am 27 & DH is 28. I am a community support professional & provide habilitative services to individuals with special needs. DH works in the operations department for a company that owns several restaurants. He helps track and analyze their data & inventory. He is a numbers guy!
We have been married for just over two years and have been together for almost four. We have three fur babies, a 9yr old poodle/wire haired terrier named Fiona, 3 yr old mini schnauzer named Tebow & 6yr old cat his named Jasper (sh*t bag cat according to DH).
Random info about me. I use to be big into cross fit and was enrolled to become an instructor when I injured my shoulder & developed arthritis. At one point I had lost over half of my body weight & 3/5 of my body fat. This was a huge part of my life and I can't wait to get back to it. I am a storm chaser & I love taking photos of friends, family and nature. I enjoy baking & wish to open my own bakery one day in addition to a salon/mini spa.
Here is a photo of DH & I on our wedding day and our fur babies

@anonysquire: you look so different without your beard.
by the way, everyone is beautiful! :))
I am 27 and DH is 31. We've been married since August, but we've been together for just about 5 years. No kiddos yet but we're working on it. We live on a farm in Iowa with our 3 kitties (Lily and Gracie are inside and Hank is outside) and 2 dogs (Baby is a pekingese who is inside and Lucky who is outside). I am a HUGE animal lover and have adopted and saved all 5 animals. I love cooking and baking and Pinterest has become my best friend because of this. I love taking pictures and can't wait to take pictures of our LOs. I work as a pediatric nurse which I absolutely love! I also do some work in our nicu.
Here's my profile pic enlarged of me and DH from our wedding:

@Bao: Thanks for starting this thread!
I've been on HB for awhile now (since beta, I think) but only became active after we got our BFP this past summer. I'm now 21 weeks pregnant with our first baby. We could not be happier!
I'm 30 and DH is 34. We live in Ontario, Canada, where we were both born and raised. I spent five years living in Montreal (did my undergrad and then worked there for a year) before moving back to Ontario 7.5 years ago for grad school. I met DH seven years ago and we've been married for just over two years. I work in higher ed and I love my job! DH works in the private sector, but will be starting a new job in the new year on the same campus as me doing in-house work (yay for shorter hours and more family time!).
We're both homebodies who love to cook, drink wine (when I'm not pregnant, obviously!) and entertain our friends and family. We share our home with our fat cat Peter Mansbridge, who is grumpy 99.95% of the time.
@twodoghouse: I'm originally from central illinois!! :))

@Ash: Aw, fun! I'm glad there's at least one other Midwesterner here!
@hergreenapples: I love that your cat is named Peter Mansbridge!!!! I love watching the National at night, although I was shocked when we got HD how old he looks these days

Great thread Bao, I love this!
Hi, y'all! I'm Kati -the baby of the group! I'm 19 and DH is 23. We both work for the same construction company in North Carolina, where I am the purchasing agent and DH is a fireplace + shower door installer. We've been married for 8 months now, and were dating for ~3 years before that! We got engaged, married and bought a house in less than a year. We are TTC our first child and we have an unbelievably spoiled 1.5 year old Siberian Husky to tide us over until then
I am a huuge homebody and am so thankful that DH is, too! I love to "flip" things, we totally renovated our house and I cannot resist the urge to buy furniture on Craigslist and refinish it. I am a quilt hoarder, a scrapbooker, a reader, a crafter and a movie buff. DH loves to be in the woods with the dog, on the lake, or just out in the yard.
Here is a picture of DH and I at our wedding, and Maya.

Hello! I'm new-ish to HB. I found it through one of the many blogs I read. So many sweet babies and pretty wedding photos. I don't really have any photos from our wedding!
I'm 31 and DH is 32. We live in Durham, NC but I'm originally from Houston (hey fellow Texans!). We have a son who will be 2 in February and I'm newly pregnant. I work at a baby boutique that awesomely allows my son to come along with me to work. I also have my own (currently neglected) blog and I do some other blog writing for work.
I have a degree in Journalism and Spanish, but I've spent most of my career as an elementary school teacher! Now, I'm just having fun with a part-time work schedule. DH is a PhD student who should be finished by next Spring.
Here's a photo of DH and DS at the beach in NC and another of DS cooling off in the 105-degree Austin, TX heat.

oh my gosh I love this thread just for the cute baby pictures!
I'm a 26 yr old SAHM to Leo, who is 6 weeks old. Before he was born, I was a mental health counselor in a substance abuse outpatient program. DH is 27 and works in finance. We live in Brooklyn, and we sadly have no pets (DH is allergic). And now some pic s:)

Hi Everyone! I joined HB a few months ago so it's nice to "meet" all of you.
I'm 33 and my DH is 34. DH and I met in 2nd year undergrad when I was 19 and he was 20. We got married 10 years later and live just north of Toronto, Ontario with our 7.5 month little boy. I'm currently on mat leave for a year and will be returning to work as an in-house lawyer in April 2013.
I'm a nerdy homebody who loves to curl up with a good fantasy novel to escape the realities of life. Although since the baby arrived I have to admit that I have not had time to read anything for leisure, except for lurking on hellobee when I'm not entertaining my little monkey or getting stuff done around the house.

Hey y'all! I'm 24 and DH is 28. We're parents to a beautiful baby girl, Miss A. She's almost 7 months old, and it is a joy to be her mommy. I'm a SAHM, DH is an electrical engineer, and we live right outside of DC. I enjoy traveling, reading, watching college football (War Eagle!), being involved in our church and hanging out with friends and family.
And I'll probably change my username soon.
Here's a pic of LO earlier this week.
@hergreenapples: Congrats on the pregnancy, and cute grumpy cat
@c.sassy: She has beautiful eyes!
@NerdBee: I call our LO little monkey too! I hear ya on the no time for reading thing!
@MrsTiz: Ahh I want your dog!
@Crumbs: lol I've heard that a few times ;), such a cute DD!
@hilsy85: such a sweet baby!
@glimmersnaps: aww what a cutie!

Hi everyone! I've been reading HB for quite some time but for some reason, didn't post often, but now I feel like coming out from the shadows!
Both DH and I are 34 and we have a 3.5 month old daughter who was born in August. We were married in October 2011 and met when we were sophomores in college, but didn't start dating until 10 years later. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and my hobbies include reading, knitting, and cooking/baking. We love to travel, go hiking and backpacking, and are already thinking of how we can take our LO backpacking next summer!
I'm still on maternity leave but go back to work in January. Eek! LO is lined up for a wonderful day care and we are working on her bottle issues (she's not a fan). We're big fans of cloth diapers. I've gotten lots of advice from the blog and posts here, so thanks much!
Here's our LO's three month photo.
