    Yeah Jacci, its funny how some do things much earlier or later than the avg. A boy in mum's group is 3wks older than Holly & Jordy & started crawling right on 7mths & has been walking behind one of those push along things for about 3wks now.

    WTG Charlie on the tooth. Hope he's not too upset Sush.

    My older brother had 4 teeth at 5mths (Holly 7.5mths), didn't crawl (Holly's very close to), first word 5mths (Holly 7mths), walked 9mths (Holly no sign yet). A work colleague's bub just started crawling tonight, she's 7mths older than Holly.

    Hi everyone,

    Wow new thread already, we are getting a bit more chatty.

    It is funny how different babies can be, but how everyone seems to expect them to be the same. I have heaps of people telling me how Abbey should have teeth by now, and should be doing this and that. All in good time I say!

    Saying that though Abbey has one tooth just popping out, top left eye tooth, to be very different lol. It's just through a tiny bit and so far she hasn't been too grizzly, she did wake every two hours last night though

    She is still crusing along with her crawling, a bit slow still but has been showing off to people. She hasn't got into anything too much yet which is good, I still have lots of baby proofing to go. She has started to sit on her knees from crawling, so instead of sitting on her bum she sits on her knees and plays. She falls over a bit though, but it isn't worrying her.

    Tried pumpkin yesterday, which she liked but not as much as the apple.

    Well enough about us..

    Sush...yay charlie for cutting a tooth, hope it doesn't hurt him too much.

    Theresa... So good to hear the girls are both well, how's em going with the feeding tube? Abbey is only on a little bit of solids atm, if G isn't interested, I wouldn't be giving her any either. Are you worried she will have the same problems as Em?

    Abs... we haven't turned Abbeys seat around yet either... she is quite happy the way she is, and I have one of those mirrors too. Interesting reading in that article though. Abbey isn't 8kg yet anyway, so I don't think we will turn her for a while. I remember hearing about the USA having them rear facing till 12months when Britney Spears got caught with her baby facing forward before then lol

    Nickers... have a good weekend away!

    I am off to bed! Hopefully for more sleep then last night!

    Well we went to our first kids christmas party yestersday. Is going to be soo much fun next year when charlie is old enough to run around, and it was really hot outside so i was always worryingif he was too hot or not and getting sunburt and stuff.

    Becky - thats great that Declan is crawling. Is he still being a grump?

    Abs - I remember you telling me that Jordy would turn his mobile on and off in his cot - charlie has just learnt to do that. i was lying in bed this morning and all we could here was thius mobile comeing on then off and on again. Gav and i thought we were going crazy for a minute.

    Rockers - Charlie loves his rocker - he sits in it every morning to watch the cartoons - but now he has started sitting straight up in it trying to reach for the toys in front - he has taught himself if he rolls sidewards in it he'll land on his chest on the ground and then he can get going. it looks so cute.

    Funny little traits - does anyone baby do one thing that you just love making them do? If you snort at carlie and make your face like a bulldog ( all scrunched up) he does at back t you - gav can do it to him for hours and they both love it.

    Shazz - how did Ryans christening go??

    AManda - I have everyone telling me charlie should have teeth too - i was at the dentist the other day and was saying to him about it and he said the later the better
    (less time for them to decay)

    Theresa - How are Em and G going? are they better? Have fun with the IL's

    Crawling - I'm hoping Charlie doesn't crawl for a little while longer - i love him being a little baby still! people keep telling me that once they start crawling it is never ending!! eeeehhhhh

    Home made rusks - Yesterday i made home made rusks for charlie - they worked out great and are really easy to make. He normally gets sick of the normal rusks after a while - but he loved chewing on the home made ones.

    Its a lovely day here in Portland ( which is amazing coz its always crap weather!) and i'm off to get ready for Racketball - talk to you all later.

    abs Guest

    Okay jac, don't leave us in suspenders... how do you make the home made rusks ????

    As for his teeth & the decay part, hmm, what difference does 2 or 3 months make ?

    Jordy hasn't done anything with his mobile re turning it on and off for ages now. He still loves playing with other parts of it though - 2 that are a barrel and a ball with a metal rod through em so they spin. And he has a ummm, whatya call those things you hang that make notes in the wind... wind chime, but padded on the other side of his cot. So yeah, we get both those sounds

    He can now roll in his sleeping bag too - hmm, not thats a new one - grrr

    Traits: Hmm, theres probably a few but I can't think of any. We do have a fairly new game that I dont think I've mentioned. When he is on the change table after being bathed or showered, we'll have a towel over his chest to keep him warmish whilst drying him with another. He'll pull the towel up over his face, we say (well more me, coz if its a bath, its her in the water and me washing him) "where's Jordy gone?" He then pulls the towel down, I say "Peekaboo" and we both giggle til he does it again

    I must get that on video, maybe this arvo

    We have a xmas party this Sunday - so that might be interesting

    Jordy goes to the Daycare centre for a couple of hours this week to see how he (or is that how Jen goes). He then goes in twice a week from next week :eek:

    Better get back to doing what I should be doing, pretending to work - hope you all had a good weekend and a great day today. We're looking at about 30 here (29 in Sydney, 31 I think in Parramatta, and we're half way in between)

    Melb - where my coolness isn't seen as wierdness

    Morning all!

    Turns out it's not C's top tooth coming through, but his left lateral incisor. The top teeth and other incisor are just below the surface though so we may avoid the lopsided smile. Lol!

    C's funniest trait is how attached he is to his Cookie Monster. Or Cookie Monsters more like. He's got one for the house and a smaller one in the car. He just adores them! He cuddles them every chance he gets, and you only have to say 'cookie monster' for him to break out the biggest smile. It all started with a book DH always reads him called 'Cookie's Colour Caper'. He'd go mental everytime the book came out.

    We, like most parents, wanted him to like Elmo, but the boy has his own mind. DH suspects that he'd much preferred a TMX Cookie Monster than a TMX Elmo!

    Abs - I actually got the Rusks recipe of this website - I can't remember which moderators recipe it was but its very easy you just get wholemal bread and then cut the edges of them and put vegemite - or nothing on it then you roll it up so it gets that doughy feeling and put it in the microwave for a minute and then just leave it to cool - they set really hard. Charlie loves it - i started him on just the plain bread ones then i added the tiniest bit of greated cheese on them and he loves those ones too.

    ta for that Jac - doesnt get much simpler than that I guess

    Edit: Found it here in case anyone else is also curious - though doesn't mention rolling it up

    I was starting to wonder that our group had quitened down again cause I hadn't had an email saying there were new posting. So thought I'd investigate and low and behold its cause I missed the start of the new thread again. GRRR. Do any of you get an email notice telling you the new thread has been started?

    Finally starting to feel like my normal self. After checking in last week I went downhill GRR. Ended up with a throat infection & chest infection (it hasn't been my year with illness).

    Declan is trying to crawl now (he's getting up on his hands and knees and rocking backwards and fowards). It looks quite cute when he's doing it. Another thing he loves is pulling himself up to a stand up position.

    Opps better run I can hear my little man.

    Bl$$dy dog has ran away AGAIN!!!

    Abs - I rolled it up so it would be in the shape of the normal rusks.

    AMy - I don't get a notification that a new thread has happened. I think the rocking looks so cute too. Charlie can only do it a few times then he tries to put an arm forward and then he falls over.
