    Hi! Nice to meet late December 2010 people! (Hope no-one minds that I'm actually a November 2010 person who stayed with her Belly Buddies group!!)

    Millie said "Please" (actually more "pease") today - I melted She wanted more apple! She's had a terrible case of the runs since Friday afternoon - she's still eating a bit and drinking enough, but sheesh, poor kid. She will say "bum" or "poo" when she needs to be changed, not like we can't smell it anyway

    Hope you're all well!

    We have MAMA! Wahoooooooo! It's her 15th word, about bloody time!

    Also, if you ask her who should be the next mayor (election on soon) she says "Mum"!

    Hello everyone!!

    PP - Millie is so clever!! Please is so sweet!! Such beautiful manners

    MadB - Hows the gorgeous little Miri doing?

    Audax - Hahaha, well then, may I wish you good luck in the upcoming election Yay for Mama!! Well worth the wait I'm sure

    Things have been hectic around here, Jacob has been cutting eye teeth and molars (I have no idea how many teeth he has now, I have lost count!) and then he got sick. I had the ambulance here twice in a matter of a week... if I didn't live so far away from the hospital I would have just taken him to emergency but DH was at work so I had the ambo come here and examine him. He seems to be somewhat better now thankfully! He's hilarious, he LOVES the wiggles, he actually brings me the tv remote and says "wiggle wiggle wiggle".....something tells me we do too much driving (every time we go on a trip he has the wiggles on his dvd player). It's very cute though, I'm so addicted to his little voice It's taught him a lot of dance moves, including how to spin around, the 'emu' and the moves to 'one finger one thumb' Oh and he also loves to draw now! How clever are our little babies

    Hope everyone else is well xox

    Wow Jules! is he ok? Are you ok?

    Miri loves drawing... usually on herself. And dancing. On her knees, as she still can't walk, though. She's talking lots too. It's amazing - very different to DS.

    Audax - now all you'll hear is maaaaaaaam. MAAAAAAAAM. MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMM.

    Too much is relative Jules - it's a necessity where you guys live! Hope Jacob Jive Bunny is OK.

    MB - How funny that Miri dances on her knees!

    Someone discovered where the chocky bickies are today, and sat at the foot of the pantry yelling and grunting in the hopes that one would materialise. She eventually settled for some croutons from the bottom shelf. She got a toy pram while the ILs were here - normally I hate that sort of thing but she was just so pleased with herself when she found it in Myer. She takes it to the supermarket and puts things in the basket. Random things, like tissue boxes (she's never seen a tissue in her life) and mushrooms and cans of asparagus.

    Thanks for the concern girls, we are both ok, just really tired. Sleep has never been great but it hasn't been at its version of best in a while. He was running temps of 39.2. Threw up a few times, had a cough etc. had his antibiotics and then the repeat and still wasn't better.. He a lot healthier now, just a runny nose. Wakes up crying still but I think that's teeth again...

    MadB - how cute are dancing babies to drawing on herself... She's the artist AND the model that's great she's talking so much! Most girls this age I know are real little chatterboxes!! Very cute.

    Audax - to your little shopper!! I bet the other shoppers LOVED it! Haha. She's such a character

    Hey Other-December-People (even tho no-one 'new' has popped in yet)

    Gah, never moving again. I'm over it and I'm finding more and more boxes!! I've lost alot of things, hoping they are just buried under other boxes.
    Hannah's room is all done, so that's a miracle.
    She's been really hard lately. Eye tooth, molar, and a bottom pointy tooth. So many teeth.
    No new words lately, just alot of talking on the phone "Yeah.... Yeah.... Who is it? Yeah... Oh yeah, baby"... No idea who she is talking to, but it's hilarious. If she can't find her phone she'll just use her hand.
    I only ever get 'mum' if she smells. So sad. She'll just start yelling "Mum mum mum mum'. "Do you stink Hannah?" "Yeah. Sing-sy" (stinky)

    Thinking of which, she's sitting on her couch saying "sing-sy'' now. Dammit.

    I'm very impressed that she can say Stinky

    Went to physio today and she reckons Miri might be walking by 18 months She's making lots of progress anyway

    Hello all!

    MadB, great news on Miri's progress!

    Char, at "sing-sy" Millie just says "poooooo".

    Jules, way better to be safe than sorry as far as ambos go. Glad to hear from you!

    Cathie, hi

    Audax, how'd you go in the election?

    All good here, knock on wood but Millie has been really well since that gastro a couple of weeks ago, not a sniffle in sight (knocking on wood so hard right now) and she seems to be coping with the change in the weather really well, lung-wise. I'm giving her a couple more weeks on 2 puffs of flixotide a day, then I'll drop the morning dose and see how she goes. She's pretty good about taking it, although the assortment of stuffed animals sometimes have to have it too... then they all have to have a drink of water before she does as well...

    Words are just tumbling out of her now, bubbles, plane, moon, star etc. She says please without being prompted sometimes, and is stringing things together, like "up please" and "Mummy finished".

    Hope you're all well xox

    PP: Sounds like Millie's words are awesome!! Trying to get Hannah to say 'please' but it just doesn't happen. She'd rather just groan.

    Hannah came into the lounge last night and flopped on her little couch and sighed. DH and I were discussing that it was bedtime for her and when she just sat on her couch I asked her "Are you tired, Hannah?" And got told "Yes." "Would you like to go nigh-nighs?" "Yes" and she stood up and followed me into the bedroom.
    It was so clever, but then I felt so guilty. How long had she been wanting to go to bed??
    She only slept til 1am and then was wide awake til 2.30. Not fun.
    Her new thing when someone, or her, sneezes she says "At-tyoo". It's very cute.

    Hi all!

    Cathie, great news about no GD and an end date for you! Dreams are funny, I had such a vivid boy dream the other night that I would be genuinely surprised (but not at all disappointed!) if we had a little girl this time. Sorry to hear Charlie is turning into a night time party animal on you - is it the weather? Millie was waking but we realised she was cold so have made sure she's warmer at night. Still parties at times though

    Char, it is awesome when they start to communicate like that

    I jinxed myself a little with my last post - Millie has had a horrible runny nose since about Thursday, but so have I, and (again, knock on wood) that is as far as it has gone. She had a bit of a feral day yesterday, which I'm clocking up to teeth, but was back to her sunny self today. She pointed to my iPod and rocked out for a bit when I put it on - she loves to dance

    I just asked DH to make me a hot lemon and honey drink - I had to give very specific instructions, but he brought it out with a little slice of lemon floating in it. What a gem! I was so touched and he was sooooooo proud of himself

    Hope you're all well!

    Hi

    Great news cathie - you're so close now! It seems to have flown by for all of you.

    Great work mr pixie!

    Miri's 4th molar popped through last week. thought we might get a break... but no... then today realised, that yup, there's her first eye tooth bulging. sigh. At one-month per tooth (if I'm lucky) then same again for the 2 year old molars, maybe we'll be done by the time she's 2....? (probably overly optimistic)

    Go Mr Pixie! He should be proud of himself.

    Welll, it's 3.03am. DH is playing the playstation, Hannah is watching and I'm doing... stuff. Poor munchkin slept 12 hours, then basically all day, and she's been up from just after 1am. She's been burning hot all day, barely ate but had a few bottles.
    She's still hot and layed in our bed from 1.30 to 2.20 and cried and sweated in my arms. Sounds weird, but she smelt like wet cat.... She ended up getting so upset (DH and I couldn't calm her down) that she vomitted.
    But it's OK... It was only on me

    Gave her a small bottle to settle her and she wouldn't go back to sleep so we decided to get up. I was hungry anyway (surprise, surprise) and we were wide awake.
    I made Hannah a weetbix (as I was making myself some) she happily ate most of it before vomitting it all back up again.

    Then, in a huge cuteness moment, she vomitted just a bit more and said "Done".
    How can I be mad at that??

    So, it's party time in the Charlotte91 household.
    Off to make myself a hot drink. Gonna be a LONG night.
