    Hi Girls,

    We have a bike seat and helmet on layby for Sarah's birthday. think we might do an afternoon tea on anzac day for her coz dh will be playing football on her birthday.

    She is now sleeping on a mattress on the floor in her room and we have not had visits during the night, but we do have a safety gate in front of her bedroom door so if she does open it she can't have run of the house when we are asleep.

    Hey guys

    Just a fly by to say hi before heading to bed.

    We have got a swing set on layby for Declan's bday atm still thinking of what else to get.

    He has been in a toddler bed for the last 1.5months (since we moved into the new house) and he is all settled into now, actually climbs into bed when he's tired and wants sleep which is cute.

    Hope everyone is keeping well.

    Chat soon xxoo

    guys i just realised it took us 6 whole months to go through one thread last one.....

    things are going well on our end.
    Tyron is such a good baby, he just cut his first 2 teeth last week at 4.5months! he's been a little unsettled but handled it pretty well.
    Nixon has cut 2 of the 4 2yr old molars, he didnt handle them too well and i think the top ones are on their way.

    I was thinking by age 2 Nixon's speach would have improved a bit more than what it has, it seems like since about 16months he has been speaking this way, im sure if has gone better over time, how quickly we forget everything once they have passed!

    we have the hills swing set that was at MIL but had no room for it when she moved. i have asked my mum to buy the slide part that attaches to it cause Nixon just loves going down slides! he takes himself down the biggest ones at parks etc!

    going to try and make him a "builders" cake which is like a construction type thing. def have to trial it first though

    hope to hear from everyone soon.

    Just popping in to say a quick hi and see how everyone is.

    Where has everyone disappeared to these days?

    Have my next appt with the Ob on Thurs so looking forward to that. Been listening to bubs heartbeat with my doppler at home but will be interesting to hear how fast its actually going, trying to work the courage up to actually request an u/s as I know the doppler can pick up the pulse of the umbilical cord but picking up the heartbeat in the middle of my belly and beating on the left side of my belly and also the right so now i'm curious lol.

    We are doing a party for Declan's birthday so really should pull my finger out and organise it lol. He's getting a swing set from us and maybe a few smaller things but dunno what else yet lol.

    What is everyone elses plans?

    hello nice to meet you!
    a few of us have 2 under 2!
    well now they are actually 2, My first son Nixon was born on the 17th April (7weeks early) and my second son Tyron was born in October and is 7months old.
    how are you finding it with the two of them?

    Hi Nic

    I am finding it pretty easy with 2 of them but that is just because DS is the EASIEST baby ever. He has been sleeping through since he was 2/3 weeks old from 9pm til around 7.30ish so that helps ALOT.

    DD is a bit of a pain at the moment as she has some nights where she will wake up and scream for hours and hours and she will be kicking and wriggling all around. We are putting it down to a combination of teeth, growing and maybe night terrors. Who knows but it has got to the point where i dread night time

    How are you coping with two?

    cant offer advise but eager to hear the advise as i want to get rid of Nixon's aswell.

    he only has it at bed time and does not get out of his bed with it, Tyron doesnt have one so that makes it a little easier, but even last night he woke and cried until i found a dummy and gave it to him.....

    yeah the first 2 months were pretty much a blur with the two of them, i had a lot of feeding difficulties, but llike your baby my second is such an easy going boy he really does make things easier!

    Do those with Dummy's have another comforter, like a blankie or favourite toy? we took the dummy away in one night, yes she whinged more but i knew it was only a tanty and the balnkie was there for her. she took about an hour to settle from memory. I ignored her and then after a week i tried offering her the dummy back and she was not interested.

    Hi guys

    Haven't checked in for a little while. Good to see the thread is starting to come back to life a bit more.

    Welcome to the thread M2U2. Look forward to getting to know you.

    Jes - Wish I knew some hints on getting rid of the dummy. If you find any let me know.

    Nic - How's things going with you guys. How are your handsome little men. How is the moving & packing going?

    Ali - How are your princesses? Won't be long and the new year will be here before you know it lol. I see you'll be TTC #3 then.

    Mitch - I hope things with Miss Lexi ease up soon for you. How long do they think it will be until Jeff is back up on his feet?

    Well for an update on me I am 25 weeks on Monday & don't know where the time is going at all. We had our scan at the begining of this month & found out we are expecting a little princess so we will have the pigeon pair.

    I need to update my sig. We are bringing TTC forward to August/September.

    DH is going full time in the army so he might be OS in January. we will be moving to either Brisbane Townsville or Darwin. we have put in a preference for Brisbane! Life is changing so much for us ATM.

    My girls are both on ABs, Em has had a chest infection, and Sarah has conjunctivitis but overall they are well. Em has her dairy challenge this weekend which should be 'interesting'. So glad we dont have to deal with dietary needs for Sarah too!
