Congrats... It's great to read these stories to keep us motivated.
I am where you were in 6/98, and I have my first kid arriving next month. My goal is to also have $1,000,000 when my kid turns 5 in 7/2010. It is a bit aggressive, but I hope possible.
I also include house equity, as it is a sizable chunk, and we plan to leave the bay area eventually so we will see the equity sooner rather than later. Tax free as well.
I don't think you mentioned your investing style. How much in mutual funds, versus stock picking? How did your investing style change over the years?
