Welcome Home Pippa!
I am 25 years old, married, and I already have 4 children. My oldest, Aurelia Suki, is 8 now and I had her when I was only 17. Rhoswen Esme came next, when I was 20, she's 5 now and I finally have both her and Aurelia in school. Ceron Raed, my only son, came third. He's 2 now, I had him at 23, and he's simply a ball of energy that never seems to burn out.
Philippa Mahal, Pippa, is brand new. She is 8 days old and she is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. She has gold hair and amazing green eyes and she's huge, 10 pounds. I can't take my eyes off her.
All my kids have the same dad. We were better off waiting until Aurelia grew a bit and then we started dating, got engaged and out came Rhoswen! We are married now and we couldn't be happier!
Tons of love to all mommys,
Tom, Diana, Aura, Rhosy, Cero, and Pippa! Good Luck!
For Tessa GiselleI was having a great time in my teenage years. I had good grades, I did sports, and I went to cool parties. I was really into rock climbing and dancing. I even went to a special school that was known worldwide for the ballerinas that trained there. I wanted to be one of them. There was this one guy, Rushil, who worked at the same place as me and was also majoring in ballet at my school of the arts. We became fast friends and soon we were partners in dance class. When I was 18, a senior, and he was 19 and a semester ahead of me, I watched him graduate. He went off to tour and I stayed back and studied. I really missed him but when I graduated he came back to watch. We went out together that night. I was already in love with him, just before he was like a best friend or a brother and it was easy to love him like a boyfriend. We went on tour that summer and he proposed at Christmas, giving me his grandmothers engagement ring.
1 year later we got married and 2 years after that our contract for touring was up. We bought a house and 6 months later I was pregnant. 8 months later I was in labour. Reya Hija came out mostly by repetitively punching her moms insides until she was breathing. She was huge, 10 pounds 5 oz. and 22 inches long. I was amazed I didn't tear. I hadn't gained much weight, only 30 pounds, while pregnant so within 2 months I was toned again. Reya was the sweetest thing, so big but so fragile and tiny! We wanted to wait but I got offered a teaching job that would start in 3 years, the current teacher had given advance notice, and I was going to be the next teacher. I accepted and in the 3 years I had of freedom I had 3 babies. Mischa Nieve and Mikhail Neron came first, quickly followed by Vera Esperanza. When Vera was 15 months I went to work and took her with me. Whe Vera turned 3 I stopped taking her with me and put her in school with her siblings. I had an unexpected pregnancy not long after. Tessa Giselle is a beautiful baby girl, our last, and she has deep green eyes and my blond hair. She has rosy skin and big red lips. In one word, she is gorgeous. I can't stop staring at her and I love her so much!

Everything I need and moreMost of the stories here, if not all, have been told by mothers. Mine is a little different, because its told from the point of view of me, a father of three.
We already had a lovely three year old daughter Zoe when my wife Sarah fell pregnant. 9 months later on the 17th November, our twin sons Thomas and Oliver was born and my world was complete.
Within a week of the boys birth, Sarah began acting strangely. She flinched whenever I passed over Ollie or Tommy for her to hold, insisted on feeding them from formula (which she had never used with Zoe) and made excuses to leave the house as often as possible. Of course I jumped to the worst conclusion and thought she had Post-Natal. She strongly denied it.
After three weeks of walking around on egg shells, she said she wanted a word. It was 10 o'clock and the kids were asleep. She told me that she wanted to come out with the truth, that she couldn't hide it any longer. She had been having an affair with another man for the past 9 months. I was stunned into disbelief. And then the worst came. A far-off fling I could just about have taken, but she then went on to say that she loved him. She wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.
And me? Anything she felt for me had died a long, long time ago. Arrogant as I was I thought it was some warped wind-up. We had been solid for six years, I'd never so much as looked at another woman, we didn't argue, and although our marital life was hardly outlandish it wasn't stale. She told me he made her feel young and in love again. He made her feel wanted and special and beautiful. He was six years her junior, and I guess she was flattered by the fact that even after three kids a handsome 21 year old fancied the socks off her.
That night she left for her sister's. She didn't return. At first I tried to trace her, to plea her to come back and nearly got a restraining order. Strangely enough it was her sister, Carla, who got me back on track. She told me that I had to stop living in the past, going through all the "what if I had"s and "what did I do wrong"s otherwise the bitterness and guilt would devour me.
After three months I pulled myself together, for the sake of the boys. And I admit during those dark months after Sarah left, Tommy and Ollie and Zoe were what kept me going. They gave me something to live for. Ever smile showed me that I was still needed somewhere, by somebody, that I wasnít a complete failure. They gave me the willpower to keep going, keep trying, keep hoping.
The boys are 18 months now. And although part of me is still waiting for Sarah to return, they are everything I will ever need and more.
Layla Elizabeth Grace already has my heartLayla Elizabeth Grace came out kicking and screaming. Her big brother Oliver, who is 3, loved to talk to her when she was in my belly and now he is always overjoyed to see her - even if she wakes him up at 2 AM. Layla has shocking deep green eyes and wavy honey colored hair. She already laughs and she cries louder than I screamed in labour with her.
She is tiny, weighing only 5 pounds 12 oz. even though she was born at 46 weeks gestation. She is the first girl in my husband's family in 3 generations so we want to try for another girl to keep her company. She is only 14 days old but I am already bonded for life with her. I can't wait for her to reach her milestones but I want these precious short days to last forever.
Samantha Grace made me complete!Hi everybody! I just had my first baby, a girl, Samantha Grace, exactly 3 weeks ago and though I am extremely sleep deprived right now I could not be happier! I am almost loving the midnight feedings and changings and her fluff of red hair and her deep blue eyes.
I absolutely love holding her all the time and when she looks up at me I know that even though I thought that my pregnancy was the best time of my life, I was giggling and energetic like a 5 year old, and my labour was long and hard, this was totally worth it.
Congratulations to all you new mothers and mothers to be!
