    Isn't it nice when you get up before the kids? So nice to have a cuppa in peace!

    Wow, it's been quiet around here...
    Must admit, I'm rarely up before Natalie - I'm so lazy, I'll stay in bed for as long as I can, LOL. I do like to have my time though - think I'd go nuts without it.
    We're having a day at home today. I've been dragging my poor girl around with me here and there and she's not getting much day-sleep. (10mins here and there in the car ) I hadn't been looking forward to today, but incredibly, she's having a nice long nap now, so I don't feel as guilty anymore Plus, now I get to spend time on the puter! Everyone's a winner here.

    It's nice to have those days at home sometimes isn't it!! I rarely get up b4 Issy either. We are good, contemplating started solids..don't know why I'm hesitant maybe I'm trying to hold on to the baby stage with all my might!! Don't want to believe she's growing up so quick?
    Is anyone thinking about another bub?? I loved being pregnant and can't wait !!

    Shez we are think of another bub going to start trying at the end of the year. That way if it happens straight away it not a problem ... it two years the first time with a little help from the doctor. But hoping will be easier this time as my body knows what it is doing.

    I agree with the solid I have given Charly some Farex when she seems to be hungry and my supply is low but think we need to start her as she is starting to want everything we eat or drink. I have been trying to hold off until six months but don't think I will make it. I am going to get a book out of the library because still not sure I am prepared. Just want the question like how much to give her, when, what are the reactions. Such I big step just want to know everything, don't get the same answers from health nurses or I forget to ask.

    Charly is now sitting up for a few minutes by herself, still don't feel comfortable leaving her ever though she seems to save herself before she falls.

    Well went in to do work on Friday, they are happy for me to go back part time when ever I want.... think they were happy because they have lost a few people lately to other areas of the organisation... could probably get a promotion into one of there job if I wanted to go back full time LOL to bad it didn't happen earlier... So look like I will go back in October.

    LOL girls - I'm still coming to terms with having a baby - sometimes I can't believe she's really mine... that I'm really a mum! I haven't thought about another one just yet - I think we're going to wait a while.
    Shez - there's no hurry to start solids, hey. Your milk is the best thing for Issy for the first year of her life. I totally understand your not being quite ready yet. I was talking to a friend on the weekend who's baby just turned one. She's really sad because her daughter is weaning herself and in her words, doesn't need her in the same way. Its sad for us when they grow up!
    Charly'smum - great news about your work. I'm glad everything worked out well for you.

    Well I caved and started the farex tonight. She loved it kept grabbing my hand and pulling the spoon to her mouth!!
    As my signature says Issy is an IVF bub so I haven't bothered using any protection as anytime of falling pg naturally is a blessing for us. I have 1 embryo frozen and can't decide when to use it as I have to stop bf to do so.

    Wow, that's a tough call Shez. Do you have a limited amount of time in which to use the frozen embryo? Great that Issy enjoyed the farex. I guess that helps you for when you want to go out, given that she doesn't like the bottle - at least you know her carer can get something into her if you're out!
    Hi again Lindsay. How exciting that you are TTC - all the best, I hope it happens for you soon. I'm glad Laila is doing so well. Just visited her photosite - she's a real cutie.

    Oo, posted at the same time, Jo. Sorry the kids are sick. Mate, I'd choose the sleep over the housework any day
    Take care.

    Lindsay Charly is the same with the roll over has been doing it for a few weeks, it like 'ok mum I can do it, now leave me alone I hate being on my tummy' but she loves to sit up or stand up holding on to something usually me. Good luck with TTC

    Shez I start Charly on farex again last night she wolfed it down and tried to lick the plate, could have been using it as a teething ring LOL. Going to stick with it this time as she is trying to take my food and drinks even when she is feeding.

    Jo hope they are better soon.

    Not mad Jo, brave!!!
    Amy I don't have any restriction on time to use the embryo, it's there as long I we keep paying for it's storage. I just don't want a huge gap b/t Issy and #2 and it took us 2 years (18mnths of which was assisted) to fall with Issy so I guess I'm keen to get started. I have decided though that I will bf til Issy is at least 12months unless she decides otherwise..
    Farex is still going well although Issy was awake from 1pm til 645 tonight so I skipped it today!!
    Love to all

    Understand about the age-gap, Shez. I guess that's why its a tough decision to have to make. Golly, if Natalie were awake for that long she'd go bananas... total meltdown.
    Today at my folks place I tried to put her to bed once I'd figured out she was tired and I'd already missed the window - she was inconsolable. Didn't want to be held, didn't want to be put down, didn't want to be wrapped or unwrapped... In the end, I whipped the booby out to calm the situation down. Phew.

    Jo I'm with you wil be looking at TTC at the end of this year as it took 2 years with 1 year being assisted to have Charly. At least I know to go to this specialist sooner the GP had no idea there was a problem said everything was fine.

    I am terrible at finding that window for Charly I am lucky if she sleeps for an hour during the day. Which is probably way I use the BF to get her some sleep. But she has been sleeping a lot in the morning if I don't go in straight away she puts herself back to sleep. Still asleep now had a 3 o'clock feed and still sleeping at 9am. Think I just heard her.

    Lindsay, it must be tough not having much time to yourself during the day - does Laila play happily on her own, or does she seem tired? Does she sleep alright at night?
    Natalie has two, sometimes three sleeps in the day of varying length - makes it hard to plan for going out and stuff! But she still wakes at least once a night, these days its usually twice, three on a bad night. I have to keep telling myself, 'it won't be forever! There's more important things to parenting than sleep' etc, LOL.
    No teeth here yet. (Thank goodness - her bite is already bad enough )

    Angel usually has 2 big 3/4hr sleeps during the day & then sleeps 12 hrs at night.But lately she's been sleeping for 5/6 hours at a time, I guess she is using it to recover, & she's hardly having any milk at all, good thing she's a fatty. She's got plenty of weight to fall back on he he he.
    Linds, Angels tooth came through, it actually split the gum & then disappeared!! Haven't seen it since. I did think it was way too early too, I must have scared it away LOL.
