We've been married 5.5 years. I actually met Mark while he was stationed here for school then assigned to a sub so we are near my family. Mark wants a boy so we may try for one more but I don't really want more than 2 kids. Nicole is enough for me right now LOL.

How did you and your DF meet? What do you do for fun? Are you planning on having more kids? Where do you want to go for your dream vacation?

Justin and I actually meet in a yahoo chat room when he was deployed in Iraq...he would call me, we would exchange pics, we would IM with webcams just about everyday for about 8mos....so his mom flew me and my oldest son up to IA for his homecoming to surprise him.....i know that sounds crazy....lol...but here we are 4.5yrs later.

well my two boys keep me pretty busy....so when i have free time to have "fun" but i LOVE to take pics and scrapbook....it helps me relax.

Justin and I are actually TTC right now and have been for almost 2yrs. now, i had a miscarriage a little over a yr. ago...which only fueled my babyfever... we would really love to have a little girl...i have always wanted to have a large family.....maybe 6-8 kids....but Justin and I have agreed on 4....but we shall see who wins in the end....lol.

I have always wanted to travel Europe. It would be awesome if when DF goes AD was to get stationed in Germany! Since we plan on getting married within the next month, since he is going AD.

if you could pick anywhere in the world to live where would it be and why? what is your favorite color? how would you describe yourself in 10 words or less? what do you feel your biggest accomplishment is?

hey jen just thought i would get on here and see how you are doing. How was your weekend? We have spent the whole weekend down in Fort Worth, TX. We took the boys to the Zoo yesterday, and are going to the Dallas Museum and mall today, and then whatever else we can find to do. Well I hope you had a great weekend and hope to hear from you soon.

I hope your feeling better...we really dont have plans for this weekend....we went to Dallas and Ft. Worth for most of last week to the zoo, museum, etc. so we are just going to stay at home and relax this weekend lol. I have to go tomarrow to enroll my oldest son in school he will be in first grade this year. He starts school the last day of this month....i never thought i would say it....but I can't wait for school to start...lol! I am going to do a little "home school" stuff with my 3yr. old...since he wants to go to school soooo bad.....so i bought a little booklet to work with him here at home this year. He is sooo excited, he had to get a color box, backpack, folder, etc. just to be here at home...lol.

thats so cute that he wants to go to school too! Nicole is already so smart. She knows where her ears, eyes, mouth, nose, hands and feet are. Her pedi thought she was 2 by how much she was talking and saying last time we went in. She loves to 'read' too. She already has so many books, she's probably going to be like me (I love to read).
I can't believe summer is already almost over!

your little one sounds like my oldest son who is now 6 1/2yrs old, he was like that at 10mos old he had the vocab. of a 24mo. old....his dr. was sooo surprised.....especially since he was 6wks premature. my youngest and him are soooo different....my oldest is more into the whole book kind of learning, my youngest is more into the mechanical side of things, my youngest learned to walk, climb, and get into things earlier, where my oldest learned to sign, talk, abcs, 123s, read and write much earlier. but what is really funny is that my youngest Zayne can tell you the names of most of the bones in the body (he is totally fascinated with the human body) but can bearly count to 6 and refuses to say his abcs and he is 4yrs old, but Tristan has known his abcs and 123s, colors, basic body parts by time he was 10mos old. I love to see how different they are. I truly believe the being a mother gives us a chance to be a kid again, just through their eyes, and with having more then one its really fun and crazy all at the same time.
