I've been thinking of you guys Nic, I'm sorry I haven't been on earlier to say a huge happy birthday, we have been away this weekend. How was it? Did you have a party for her?

Thanks Rosy!! Hard to believe she is one already sad.gif

We did have a big party on Saturday. It went really well. I was worried how she would go with all the people as she is normally quite shy, but aside from a couple of minor whinges she was really happy and loved being the centre of attention. She also ate pretty much everything!!! We have had constant visitors since Friday though so lots of attention and running around and presents has meant today it's feral town sad.gif We were going to go out to the library this morning but instead I'm trying to get her to catch up on sleep.

Later I have to sort out all the new toys and books she got. Very spoilt bubba!! How are you and Eli going? Any birthday plans?

Excellent to hear, I'm pleased it went so well! Haha I hear you about feral town, lol. it does tend to get like that after a busy few days.

Woohoo on the first steps! Have you noticed a new world of danger opening up now she is just that bit taller and can reach up to things? I have. More baby-proofing to do.

We're going well. He has been sleeping through consistently for about a month but now I'm thinking about cutting out the dreamfeed and I'm too scared because I think he will start waking again. And his walking is really coming along in leaps and bounds. He had pulled himself up maybe twice only and then in the last few days he has exploded, he is standing really well and taking a few tiny steps along the couch and walking very well when we hold his hands to balance him. Our childcare arrangements might fall through so I'm thinking he might have to go to childcare soon but we will cross that bridge if and when we come to it.

He is down to 2 feeds a day plus DF as of about 2 days ago, the end of BFing is definitely nigh which makes me a bit sad but oh well, hopefully we can stretch it out to 12 months at least.

Yep, making plans for a birthday party the weekend after his birthday. On his actual birthday we both have the day off work and we are going to the zoo and will have a cake for him, but we're having a big party later. I'm actually buying food colouring off ebay right now for his cake. I'm seriously excited, ridiculously so!

Yeah she is into pretty much everything. although more so from the fact that she power crawls and pulls up on everything. That has been going on for a couple of months, she is just getting faster now. She also opens every drawer and cupboard and climbs all the stairs. We have some drawer locks but I need to get more. The stairs are harder to deal with. We only have one set gated as the others are not easy to gate.

For awhile we managed to keep her happy in her play pen for short periods (with toys) but now that doesn't even work and she just screams. Our kitchen/family room is not babyproofed so I have to watch her constantly, and it makes it difficult. Oh well. These things happen when you have a very child unfriendly house dry.gif

Her walking is getting better every day. She is consistently doing 2-3 steps now. She is also standing on her own a lot and her balance is really good. It's really just her getting the confidence up.

Yay, for Eli getting better with his walking!! Very exciting. His b'day plans sound lovely. It's hard to believe it's been a year (and 2 years since we were in the TTC threads) dry.gif

Oh, I don't have you on my FB (feel free to add me if you are on there, I'm Scully and friends with April and lots of other I-doers). Here are some pics of her party: Party part 1 and part two

Oh my, she is too cute for words! Look at those eyes! And I love the pic of her blowing on the glass, hahahahaha.

The party looks like lots of work but really fun too. biggrin.gif

I'll look for you on FB, I am Aquari Yum which is my business, I don't have a personal page although for a while people were tagging me as Aquari Yum so there are some photos of Eli on there!

Rosy, Eli is a cutie (I found the photos on FB!) smile.gif

Yep, the party was a lot of work but in reality it wasn't too bad. We often do big dinners/parties so it wasn't too hard. I enjoyed getting to do kiddie things!! Not sure she will get that kind of effort every year but it was lovely to celebrate her getting to one and us surviving the first year of parenthood unscathed laugh.gif

Astrid does have pretty cool eyes. Makes it easy to take a good photo of her. She also has the most ridiculously long eyelashes. Everyone comments on them. Still not sure how something so gorgeous came from my genes tongue.gif

Oh and in exciting news, she is walking properly now. Over the weekend she started just walking 7-8 steps at a time and and can now go half way across a room no probs. She is stil crawling a lot of the time but loves walking to me for cuddles wub.gif
