Talking Baby is here and I'm back and ready!!

Hi all! It's been a long year away from the board, but I am officially back and so excited to get back in shape. I had a baby boy on December 12, we named him Erik and he was 7lbs 5oz and 19in. Now that Christmas is over and I'm almost recovered from the c-section, I am really looking forward to 2007. I'm on Mat leave the entire year and for the first time ever, I can focus solely on myself and my family without having to divide my time up with a 40-hr/wk job. I gained 19 lbs during the pregnancy, so I am essentially starting back where I was before I got pregnant.

I see lots of familiar faces here, I can't wait to catch up with everyone and meet all the new people too.

And of course, here is my new baby boy:
