Summer is almost here!
I hope that you have fun & stay safe.
Our CD Krystal stepped down last month
We are sad to see her go. In her absence, I have become the Comm. Director. If you need anything let me know, and if I don't have the answer, I will find someone that does.
Also I will be looking for someone to help me out around here, if you are interested, please let me know.
I am also looking for hosts on several of the boards. Look around & if you think it's something you would like to try, please let me know. I would like to see the boards revived!!!
Please help me
a few new hosts
Hanna * hanna's halos, Lacey * lacenicole17 & Kaelyn * reekae06
They are the new hosts over at Due in Dec 2011
If you would like to nominate someone please send me the info no later than the 15th of the month prior (i.e June 15th for July newsletter)
Everything Pregnancy is sad to see our new moms leave but so HAPPY that their babies are here and healthy. Due In May 2011 is now Born in May 2011 and has a new home on the SK Parenting forums. Here's a link to their new home Born in May 2011
Congratulations to all the new May Mommas!
And with our new babies being born, we are ever expanding our due-in boards all the time. There are some new members to our Due in February 2011 board. Welcome all Mamas-to-be. We wish you all a happy and healthy nine months here. If you would like to host on your due-in board, there will be applications taken when your board gets busier and more members join.
Our get-to-know-you question this month is: what is your one favorite thing about being pregnant. Why don't you tell us what makes you happy about the coming event.

Here it is!! It's amazing.
mammRoo baby bouncer
The bouncy seat is the number one recommended baby item – how else do you expect to get a shower? The mamaRoo moves like a parent, not a typical baby bouncy seat, so your baby will feel extra cozy and soothed.
