So I just wanted to say hello here in this Playroom as I have been lurking nearly every day since March 09 or so. I think it is really helpful to read the forums here. My LO 's name is Jasmin, born on October 15th 2009. The delivery took 9.5 hours, so I am kind of glad, that the delivery didn`t last longer and this is my first child. She was born at 6 lbs 5 oz at 19 inches or so. It is so amazing how my LO has grown in the last 6 months.
And I hope all the babies here are growing and developing well!

Welcome! I love this board! It has been great to have such an amazing group of mommies to go to whenever I have questions. Tegan was also my first, she was born Oct. 2nd and was 6lbs, 15oz. She is now a chunky monkey at 18lbs!

Welcome! JM is great, I have been a devoted member since Jan '05. My name is Nicole and my Oct. baby is my 3rd, my first daughter Bailey. She was born on the 2nd. I also have two sons, Thomas (4) and Collin (2)

How is Jasmin doing? Do you FF or BF? How much/often is she eating? Does she roll over/sit up/crawl? Are you feeding solids yet? What is your favorite part about being a mother?

Please jump right in and post away! We cannot wait to get to know you and your baby girl

Jasmin has a little cyst at her finger, but probably nothing serious as long as it isn`t infected. She has a little cough sometimes, but doctor said she sounds fine ( I was worried about allergies and asthma ) I do BF and Jasmin eats rather often ( every 2 -4 hours, mostly every 2 hours in the afternoon) and she likes to BF to fall asleep - I don`t know how it will be when I wean her. She likes to roll over both ways, she rolls through the room sometimes, but often she starts complaining when on the tummy. She`s not sittung up unsupported, she would fall over after some seconds. We introduced rice cereal 2 weeks ago and she did try banana yesterday. In the birth class we got some stuff to read and one was titled `the Gift of Motherhood`and I guess one mainly understands what it means when one has a child.
I am a little concerned as she stopped talking when she started grasping at 3 months, now shes making sounds, but not a lot of consonants, maybe sometimes `n`, she only said `ole` `oyeah` and `ja`a few weeks ago. I often try to talk like a waterfall to her now

thanks @all and yes, I will try to post an image of Jasmin soon...So now that I am registered here, II wanted to mention that today I signed a petition for kids against toxic chemicals ( I came to that as I did worry about some lipstick that I had on and passing of chemicals of it into breastmilk, so I found "Skin Deep" a cosmetics database ) here`s the link for the petition if anyone is interested
edit
I just received a message I need 10 posts before I can post a link, but if you search for "Environmental Working Group Petition " you`ll find the URL for the petition, too.
The found BPA and so on in umbilical blood , they tested 10 babies

edit 2
someone of you might consider maybe making an own thread with the actual link for the petition out of it?
just a thought

I was often close to registering here , but also only reading was also very helpful
In case of doubt or worries, I`ll usually google for prolonged time, and then I try not to be overwhelmed by the worst case scenario found by google
