Mom & baby groups?

I am looking for mom and baby (under 2) groups in the Lakewood, Wheat Ridge, or Arvada areas. Anyone have any info on them? It's becoming apparent that my 8 month old son loves interacting with other kids and I don't really know of anyone in the area with a young baby who is available during the week (I work on the weekends).

Thanks in advance!

I'm new!

Hey everybody! I'm new the group! I'm Krysti!!!!! 21 years old! Married to Jeremiah! I have a daughter, Kaelyn Jo, born May 31, 2006!!!! We own a pug, Wedgie!!!! I'm a SAHM! And Jeremiah works at Avis Rental Car!!!

Poll on First Language Acquisition

I'm working on a project for my linguistics class, and I'm wondering if anybody out there would be willing to help me out. If you have children that have already learned how to talk, can you follow the links over to my journal to take a poll?

The first poll is for parents who have taught their children spoken English only.

The second poll is for parents who have taught their children spoken English and baby sign language

[At this point, I'm looking for more people to fill out the first poll on parents who have taught they're children spoken English only. If you have experience teaching your child baby sign language, than feel free to fill out the second poll.]

I sincerely appreciate your help with this.

Don't know if anyone has seen this yet:

Last week in response to news that a ticket agent forced a mother off a Freedom Air flight run by Delta Air Lines for breastfeeding on-board, MomsRising put up a petition. In less than a week the petition gathered over 20,000 signatures telling Delta Air Lines that breastfeeding mothers should be supported, as well as supporting the Breastfeeding Promotion Act before Congress
DELTA AIRLINES STATEMENT: "Delta Air Lines supports a mother’s right to breastfeed her baby onboard our aircraft. We regret the decision to remove the passenger from Flight 6160 as it was not in keeping with Delta's high service standards, and we are coordinating with Freedom Airlines to ensure that they deliver the level of service we expect for all of our customers."

NEXT STEPS: Right now, Delta Airlines is contemplating officially supporting the Breastfeeding Promotion Act which is currently before Congress. So please give Delta a call to thank them for taking a strong stand on behalf of breastfeeding mothers, and encourage Delta to actively support the Breastfeeding Promotion Act. Getting more signatures on the petition helps let our leaders know that citizen support is strong.

*To sign the petition (and ask friends to sign on), go to:

MomsRising is committed to making it possible for all mothers who want to breastfeed their children to be able to do so. In an effort to build a country that's truly family-friendly, MomsRising supports policies and programs that allow mothers to make that choice—including policies like paid family leave and flexible work options.

Together we’re building a more family-friendly America. Thank you! – The MomsRising Team

Hi everyone, i joined live journal recentley and am new at this. Just wanted to say hi. I am a mother of a 3 year old gorgeous baby girl. I have been married for 2 years. I have been with him for 6. Just wanted to say hi and tell u a little about myself.


I just joined this community in an attempt to make a friend or two... My name is Ashley and i'm a 21 year old new mama to a 9 week old baby boy named Colin. I'm a stay at home mom in Colorado Springs looking to work from home once I find something legit. I lost all but 2 of my "friends" once my pregnancy became known and I get out of the house maybe 2 times a week, and that's just to run a quick errand or two. I'm wicked bored and lonely most of the time and thought maybe this community could help with that!

Colorado Mom of one

Hi all, wow, a colorado mom community on Lj! I was actually thinking of making one myself cause I wasn't sure, but I'm glad I fond one here.

I'm 27 years old, a mother of one who is 4 years old and married. I live in Colorado, and fact is, I'm in desperate need of friends. lol I literally have no friends in the Lakewood/Golden area and my daughter has no friends outside of her preschool time. So we stay home together all the time...I cook, clean, take care of the bills, run the errands and tend to my little one. Not a bad deal right? Wrong...she has as speech delay which makes for very stressful and frustrating days usually. She really is over all a good kid, sweet and loving, but because of her inablity to talk and communicate and understand what I am saying, it tends to cause tantrums between me and her. I think alot of it has to do with that she's only had me for the last four years.

Needless to say, my husband, bless him for what he does, works 6 days a week and is hardly ever home. I just want to make friends with good parents, I used to be friends with a couple (friends of my husbands really) till I tried watchin their oldest who is 8 and she got WAAAAAY out of hand with my daughter...I told her her parents about it and they basically told me to loose their number. try to protect your kid and you get treated like trash! Oh now I absolutely no friends and my daughter doesn't go to play with their kids (they have two btw, one 8 and one a month older than my daughter). I can I when the oldest leaves a bruse on her arm? yeah...I'm in need of friends...of a life...I'm craving it actually, which is probably why I am feelin depressed about it all and why I am just NOW looking for some way to meet new people!

I can act like a kid at times, so I would like to meet people who like to have fun, joke around, get crazy once in a while (just not to crazy lol I have my limits! LOL) who likes some of the same things I do and just enjoy being away from the kids once in a while. Even help each other out when it comes to it! So yeah that's me, I'm a stay at home mom and if I can find a way I take college classes when I can. My name is Kelly, but I go by Star online! So that's it! That's me!
