Just saying hi!!

Hello, I thought I'd hang out here a bit to keep me in line for waiting to try. I'm Patty (23) and I have a daughter named Becca who is 15 months , born Oct 22, 2008. My boyfriend Luke and I have been together for almost a month now, but we've known each other since 2004 when I started college. We pretty much know we want to spend the rest of our lives together, and I want to have another baby really bad, but I know I should wait until we are married, especially since his family is super religious and they already don't think hightly of me since I have a child already. So I'm hoping to have a wedding in spring or summer of next year and start trying to have a baby right away after that, so I still have a good while. I hope to start getting to know everyone soon!!!

That's awesome, Patty. My twins use sign language too. Did you use the Baby Signing Time DVDs?

She only does a few now, but when she was younger she did more. She does Cookie, Milk, Sleep, and play, she used to do thank you, mom and I love you as well. And eat. LOL. It's pretty neat, especially when you spend your time repeating th word over and over, and then when they do it at first without your help you think "oh, that must be a fluke" and then they keep doing it and when you give them what they ask for they stop and it's like "wow, I taught them that." She didnt start doing it until she was about 9 or 10 months though, when she should have been starting to say more words anyways, so I was more concerned about getting her to say the word while signing.

Hi Patty, welcome to the board! My husband and I felt like that when we started dating too, so I know how you feel! I'm Becki, 24, and my DH Paul (26) and I have been married over two years and we're waiting to try for our first late this year or next year.

In your siggy I saw that your baby signs, that's awesome! I want to use baby sign too - how well did it work for you?



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

Welcome to the board Patty! I'm Jay, 25, engaged to DF (26) -- we'll be getting married this coming summer, and then trying for our first no earlier than our one-year anniversary in 2011. Looking forward to getting to know you while we wait! There's a buddy group down below for those of you waiting until 2011-2012, so feel free to join in ! (I think it's been bumped down to the next page, but you're free to refresh it!)
