GOsh I just havent made it in here in time sad.gif

A big happy birthday smooch to the gorgeous Miss J! She is just so so cute in that tutu wub.gif The party sounded great and I am impressed at all your baking!

LOL Kisma at not wanting to share your bday with Master I smile.gif how perfect was the timing of the onset of labour then!

I will be back for more personals etc but just wanted to post something for now laugh.gif

Elka and Bronte's party was fantastic smile.gif hoping to get some pics up on facebook soon... I stupidly didnt realise having the combined party would mean two times presents - we have SO much new stuff, the kids are in heaven!

I have moved Bronte off day bottles of formula now - she just has a morning and evening bottle and now has a sippy cup of cows milk in the middle of the day. Finding it hard to believe she is that big!

GW - heading to the coast sounds lovely... So exciting about your scan!!! Can't wait to hear all about it! Have you decided about finding out the sex?

We are off to our beach house for the weekend for a friends vow renewal on the beach wub.gif They are paying for a swanky three course dinner for us all and the kids are invited - perfect!

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes for Miss J.

Kisma - I worry about J drinking because I give it too her too, but if she doesn't want it she will push it away.

Vetty - I was really glad when J started walking just before her birthday just for the tutu! so vain aren't I laugh.gif

Penny I'm glad the girls had a lovely birthday party - can't wait to hear all about it when you've got a chance. Have a lovely time at the beach this weekend.

We had our scan today - all went well - and here is the little one.

The sonographer has a 'don't ask don't tell' policy - so since we didn't ask about the gender, he didn't even look around. So we didn't find out (and whilst they're both being polite about it - secretly I think Mum and MIL wanted me to find out - too bad). All of my MG also want me to find out, so they're going to be disappointed too laugh.gif

OMG Greenwich - what a gorgeous pic wub.gif I think that bub looks like another cutie pie girl wub.gif Thanks for sharing and so glad all went well!

Happy Birthday to Master I!!!! Hope he had a great day wub.gif

Bronte's bday was yesterday and we took the day off work and my parents were staying so it was lovely. we took the girls to their favourite play centre and they just played and played smile.gif and had a yummy lunch so I think Bronte had fun. She also got her second ever piece of chocolate cake and just loved it yet again. She got a fold out lounge like Elka has and was so pleased with herself, she sits up on in like a big girl. And she got a walker/push car with the balls in the clear bubble that pop when she pushes it,that is also a winner when she can get it off her sister rolleyes.gif

She is taking lots and lots of steps now, SO close to officially walking smile.gif and says a lot more words, very cute!

Can you believe that we have to move our thread out of this section now!? Gosh can't believe they arent babies anymore!

Happy (belated) Birthday Bronte. So glad the girls had a great time at their party. And Bronte's actual birthdday day sounded lovely. And I can see why she loved her presents. How exciting B is so close to walking, its an exciting time. I hope your weekend away is great and the vow renewal was gorgeous.

GW how cute is little bubba 2? wub.gif So glad everything is going well and I have been wondering if you were going to end up finding out the sex laugh.gif How are you going with the one day sleep? Ive given up lol, its two again. Enjoy your weekend away

Vetty I hope your little family are feeling better. You are amazing dealing with all of the sickness AND assignments at the same time. I would have cracked by now and quit lol.

AFU: My bday was good, I can see for years to come I am going to be spending it getting ready for Ds's party lol. But oh well it was lots of fun, and so glad I had my mum there too help me. Im pretty sure I would have stuffed the cake up well and truly. Ds's party was good, we ended up having it in the morning as half of the guestes were going to a funeral which was at midday. So it was short but that ended up being good as the little man was well and truly ready for bed. He had a fun time tearing into the cake and then eating it, it was a banana cake - and he has had a piece a day since and he cant get enough of it. So they are rather large pieces I give him. We also went out for dinner and we were sat next to the singer/guitarist (Spanish restaurant). Originally I was sitting next to him but had to lean forward because DS kept pushing me forward with his arm so he could watch the guy playing laugh.gif In the end I swapped our seats. It was bliss he was entertained all night between that and food. He was even offering his food the the singer laugh.gif The singer then sang happy birthday too him. So far the miraccas and bubble stick I bought DS are his fave presents. He isn't remotely interested in the bubbles being blown instead he likes to carry it around chomping on it all the time lol.

Like Bronte we are getting so much talking, about four days ago he started talking and pretty much hasnt stopped. If only I could figure out what he was trying to say laugh.gif, I catch words but can never put them into context. And he is definately trying to speak to us as he will repeat something word/babble perfect three or more times, clearly trying to get us to understand.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and all the little bubs with birthdays next week have a great day.

I can't believe its been a whole year since I was reading the birth announcements of these little ones.

A big happy birthday to Bronte, Isaac and Kisma for last week, and to Oliver, William and Miss E for this week. I hope you all had/have lovely birthdays.

Kisma glad I enjoyed his birthday cake and his pressies. Going out for dinner/lunch is always heaps easier when there's a clucky waitress or entertainment for the little ones!

Vetty I hope you guys feel better soon - and good luck for your exams. I can't wait to see Miss K's cake.

Penny sounds like you guys had a lovely day on Bronte's birthday, and a wonderful birthday party for the girls. I hope you enjoyed your weekend away.

As for us, we're persevering with operation one day sleep. She's had 1 sleep of 1.5 hours and 1 of 1.75 hours (when grandma was babysitting while I was at my scan - thanks darling), and the rest are about an hour wacko.gif I'm convinced it not enough sleep but she copes with it and does 12 overnight so we're gonig to keep going for a bit and see what happens.

We've also dropped the after lunch bottle. Doesn't drink much milk, but still loves other dairy sources so I'm not concerned about calcium intake. Her appetite has exploded since we dropped that bottle, and on the weekend we went out for brunch and she refused her after breakfast bottle while we were there (too much to look at) and she ate heaps for the rest of the day, and still slept through the night, so the after breakfast one is going next week. She was even eating things she'd previously refused, I think just because she was hungry.

She has been having a ball with all the new birthday pressies. She got given a plastic fantastic numerical keyboard thing as a birthday pressie and it plays songs when you hit its keys, and she groves away to it wub.gif so freakin' cute wub.gif

Oh, and CamAli - we need an update in here missy! particularly about some wonderful news I have spotted in your sig wub.gif - Kisma and I are right there with you in the small age gap club laugh.gif

ohmy.gif Wow congratulations Ali wub.gif

Awww J sounds cute playing with her pressies.

So glad you mentioned dropping the morning bottle GW, I have been contemplating dropping the BF here (still not sure im ready to completely stop though, then other times I cant wait) because it seems like there isnt much point. I missed it the other day and didnt even notice until around 6ish when I started getting uncomfy. Before it would have been two hours max and I would have noticed. Im even contemplating getting rid of the bed bottle as about the last three nights he has been lucky to drink 80mls. Seems almost pointless. He hasnt had a day bottle here for about 5 days, not sure if I should send one too daycare tomorrow or not. I might just in case as he doesnt get fed as much as he does here. Is anyone else amazed at the amount of food they can eat? laugh.gif

I borrowed a book from the library the other day on Baby Signs and in it they were talking about toilet training younger babies (ie younger than 2yrs). Apparently until disposables were invented it wasnt unusual for babies to be trained by 18months. So I figure I may as well try now while I have more time, and hopefully DS will be completely trained by the time the next bub gets here............I HOPE haha. I figure if it doesnt work at least he has a semi idea about it all.

Toilet training? *sticks fingers in ears* lalalala I can't hear you!

Seriously though - i know in our parents day bubs were trained sooner, but I'm not sure how to go about it with the limited communication we have - although its amazing how much they understand at the moment. MIL tells me she had DH trained by the time she went to hospital to have BIL (so about 18 months) and when her mother looked after DH when MIL was in hospital she put him back in nappies and undid all her hard work.

Kisma how is the bottle dropping going? We've had one week of no after lunch bottle. I offer a sippy cup with milk for all meals, sometimes she drinks it sometimes she doesn't rolleyes.gif . I also realised when out doing the groceries today that I forgot to give her her after breakfast bottle this morning, so she's only had one today (before bed). I can't believe I forgot! No wonder she ate 2 morning tea's!! I was going to drop it in the next week or so, so I think I'll just start now.

Also a big happy birthday to our birthday babies next week. Miss E for today, Kirrily and Eleanor for next week. Vetty I can't wait to see Kirrily's cake!

As for us, we're doing well - J has been SUPER clingy the last few days, as in I can't leave her sight. Its so draining. However, when we're out or someone is over, she's a perfect angel. Needless to say we've had a busy week!

She's also started doing what DH calls her Zombie walk whenever she spots the cat. Giggles, arms straight out as she chases after him. Cat is not as impressed with the zombie walk as we are laugh.gif

I hope everyone is doing well.

GW - Bronte is really good at that clingy at home-perfect out thing. So annoying as other Mummy rfriends look at you like you are crazy when you complain!

laugh.gif laugh.gif


Kisma - Elka toilet trained at 15-18 months and then regressed, which is apparently quite common. Good luck wtih your plan, I like the sound of it! cool.gif

Bronte is walking - well and truly - she just got up on monday and started walking non stop! Very cute, especially her super proud face laugh.gif
She got her 12 months needles today and she was feral tonight - screaming until she was purple in the face and arched back and stiff and hitting out at everything. Poor chicken, eventually calmed her down and got her to bed - she doesn't have a temp or anything so far but its obviously giving her body a hard work out regardless..
She had her check up too - can;t remember anything besides that she is 75cm tall laugh.gif poor second child!

On the whole dropping feeds thing - I have accidently forgotten to give Bronte a few feeds recently ph34r.gif so she is often only on two milk feeds a day. She is now purely on cows milk.
She is no where near ready for one day sleep though - daycare tries it every now and then adnd she is so tired in the evenings she can't eat dinner etc. I think Bronte gets extra tired though as Elka gets out of bed at 6am and wakes her up (or I do on work days!)..

I am back at work 4 days a week and loving it - the week was less stressful as I got through so much at work..

Hope everyone has great long weekends - I sold one of my horses and doubled what I paid for him so I am all cashed up and going to go shopping (for horse stuff and clothes - best of both worlds wink.gif)

MIL tells me she had DH trained by the time she went to hospital to have BIL (so about 18 months) and when her mother looked after DH when MIL was in hospital she put him back in nappies and undid all her hard work.

ohmy.gif huh.gif That would infuriate me. And it makes me a bit nervous as Im not sure who will be looking after DS when I go into hospital. I was going to start yesterday as then I have until he goes to daycare on Tuesday to see how it goes. However he was teething really bad and so quiet and unhappy all day and hasnt perked up much today, so it will have to wait until next Friday now. Alot of reading that I have done have people saying their kids were showing signs of readiness around 18months, so not keen on the fact that DS will be around 18months when the next bub is born so thought id try early. I must say though, im reserving the right to give up whenever I want haha laugh.gif ph34r.gif

Awww J's zombie walk sounds so funny. And poor cat lol. Have you videoed it? Hear you on them being perfect when people are around.

We are down to just a night bottle and still a morning BF although thats getting shorter and shorter. We had Ds's 12mth check up, and its proven what I know and everyone else points out - that he is tiny laugh.gif We have been weighing him on our scales at home (saying approx 10-11kg) but when I had my first appointment the other day with the obs I realised they are way out (werent level on the floor so I discovered). I am over 10kg lighter than what the home scales say (im actually lighter than pre DS weight wacko.gif dropping BFing clearly is a a good weight loss ). And DS is a whopping 8kg. His head circumfrence is still tracking along, but his weight is way off track. He was around 8kg a few months back. The MCHN says its probably because he is active, and I would have to agree. He is far from malnourished. And 73.5cm.

I left a little baffled and irritated from the check up, the MCHN is so by the book, which is what I realised when we had the 6mth check up. She asked me if he makes animal noises and I said no and we dont do a heap of noises with him, mainly just dog, chicken and duck as thats what we have at home. So she asked if he said any words, and I rattled off a heap he says, including 'Theres Isaac', 'Whats this' and 'Whats outside' and she told me that was fantastic and he was doing well to say more than one word at a time amongst babble for his age. Then proceeded to tell me to I should start making animal noises with him as that is how he will learn to imitate sounds and words huh.gif wacko.gif So clearly until he makes animal noises he's way behind and wont learn how to talk!!!???!!! Then she asked if he was still having any bottles and I said yes a night one until I finish the tin of formula. Well she wasnt happy about that she told me to cut it out straight away and put him on cows milk (for morning and afternoon tea as well as night apparently) and toddler formulas is just a marketing ploy. So I asked why they need to have cows milk and what it provides apart from calcium that he wont get in food (genuine question, im not convinced it wasnt just good marketing by dairy farmers) and she looked at me like I was stupid then pulled out a food list saying he needed three serves of dairy a day and that should include milk. Then showed me another food list that said to feed him either rice bubbles or weetbix for breaky, but told me to get some weeties (apparently some little weetbix balls with fruit in them) and to give him a few at a time on his tray so he can learn to feed himself as he will most likely start refusing the spoon. I explained he has always fed himself from the get go and she then kept telling me about how I should try these weeties as they are great for them to start learning to feed themselves, and will give a different texture to spoon food because its normal to refuse to be fed by a spoon and all part of development. wacko.gif Im was so happy to get out of there and glad there isnt another check up for 6 more months.

I have my morph scan booked in for two weeks time. And I can't wait. Im so keen to find out what this bubs is, and too see if my strong hunch is right wink.gif

Have fun shopping Amy, I hope you are ok when your horse is picked up. I bet you will miss him heaps but enjoy the free time. How cute does B's walking sound and I hope she recovers from her needles ok. Poor little poppet. And enjoy your fourth day. Do you plan on going to five or are you enjoying just doing part time at the moment?

Happy Birthday to Miss E for yesterday, Miss K for tomorrow and Miss E for next week too.

Enjoy the long weekend everyone.

heheheheh.... i am just so busy and slack that i never get time to post, but i still stalk you all ph34r.gif

Yes, we are very excited and a little shocked ph34r.gif Thankfully, this pregnancy has thus far been much better than E's. I have been very pro-active with ensuring i don't get to sick ! Working full time and not having time to be sick has also helped.

We are due early December and so it will be approx 17months gap .... scary stuff. I have no idea how i am going to cope, i also agreed to go back to work part time in Mid Feb. So bub will only be 10 weeks old blink.gif
