Well since Leah (babydahl) called me out in her intro last night I figured I'd give you all a quick intro. I've been lurking here for awhile. We have a 2yr old and 1 yr old boys and are expecting #3 in Nov. I realize we're not a large family yet but we pray that God will bless our family with many children. I would love to have at least 7-10 kids. I'm already 31 so I'm not sure how many we'll end up with but that is in God's hands.

I am the oldest of 7 kids and loved growing up in a big family (at least most of the time) Being the oldest I helped out a lot with the younger kids and while I thought it was a pain at times I look back and love the experience now and aside from my husband my siblings are my closest friends.

I guess that's about it. Just figured I'd come out of lurking and introduce myself. I know several of you from other boards and I have really enjoyed reading about all of your kiddos.

eta: I thought you all might like to see a picture of my siblings and me. This was taken at Christmas. Two of us are married and have kids so 2 of the little kids are mine 3 are my brothers. I am in the middle with the white shirt and my DH is the tall one behind me and my SIL is in the red striped shirt but everyone else are my siblings. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers

Thanks for welcoming me I added a picture of my siblings to the first post as I thought you all would enjoy seeing us. After this year my two youngest sisters will be the only ones left at home.

LOVE that picture Ruth! I love seeing big families all grown up. One of my good friends has 4 siblings and 3 of the daughters all have babies within a year of the same age, I LOVE seeing their family get together pictures!

Family get togethers are a lot of fun. My brother's oldest boy and my oldest are 6 months apart and then our younger boys are 9 months apart so there are 4 boys age 2 and under right now which is fun. My niece would really like us to have a girl so she has a girl cousin to play with
