1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My wife and I were both 31 (just a few weeks from 32) when our daughter was born.

    I had kids when I was 32 and 34. Seems pretty good to me. We're financially stable but young enough to chase them around!

    nice screenname!

    24 for me. That was mindbendingly tough. But now so many years down the line kid is full grown and I only remember the happy moments. Certainly at the time I did NOT have my finances together.
    Raised the kid as a single father, for the most part.

    Fellas who have kids in your later years - you have hopefully had time to put your finances together, but you now lack youth to chase those little rug rats around.

    It's not fair either way.

    I think it is harder than ever to raise kids in today's world. Costs are out of control and the world is such a (more) dangerous place, now.

    Ready for another. My father had me in his mid 40s.

    My wife is not so keen...

    37 wife was 40 this was after three miscarriages so decided not worth the risk with downs to try again.

    First starting trying in earnest at 33.

    On the whole: Excellent! He seems happy, smiles a lot. He sleeps between the hours of 11:30 PM and 7:30 AM (and other times). He is called very alert by the professionals that come into contact with him and does little things that make me and his mother proud. Best thing besides his smiles is the arm he puts over my shoulder when I hold him. Wouldn't want to miss him.

    The last couple of days he has had a cold with some rise in temperature. Nothing major, only it aches a parent's heart.:)

    Thank you for asking. I read you have your own proud moment this of last morning. Very nice!

    Congrats, See-Deef! But I'm a little disappointed to learn that you actually have a life outside of StyleForum… I feel so betrayed! :cry:

    Yeah same age for me. I did have a job, but not a grown-up one. Was a manager at a record store (remember those). I finished college about 4 days before she was born. Can't recommend doing it the way I did, because it was a struggle and it almost didn't turn out ok about 100 times, but I can't imagine things being any different now.

    If you love them -- like "put their needs above yours" love them -- it always turns out OK.
