Thread: Babies Born in July 2005 #10

    I hear ya Bel on being a bit sad about the first birthday coming up. I read somewhere that some mums get the "blues" around the first birthday as the realisation starts to set in that they are no longer a little baby totally dependant on you, but moving rapidly into being an independant toddler (if they aren't already!). So sad, but good all the same.



    Talking of bubs doing funny things (and the stories so far have been soooooo cute), Pup gets on our floorboards or cork tiles and when he gets really excited, he spins around on his belly doing 360's. So funny. And he has this really riduculous laugh - always has and probably always will. It sounds like....um...(trying to think of a way to describe it.....)..he makes the most noise of his laugh on his intake of breath rather than the outflow of breath. So it is like a noisy wheeze. Hard to describe but very easy to imitate. Bloody funny though.

    I'm a bit stuck for ideas of a theme for a first birthday. Any suggestions? Doesn't have to been a known character (like Pooh or Wiggles - could be generic like circus or zoo), but something that I can gather stuff easily together to make a theme. Like to do invites, decorations and also able to get scrapbooking stuff to record it all. I just dunno, but definately not farm related.

    I was thinking dragons, like Puff, after the way you just described his laugh made me think of it.

    Oh and AF arrived, right on time. sigh.

    Deb bummer about AF.

    I was going to say that we are using Dragons for Coby's first birthday. I am making a dragon cake, a very cute one obviously, he's all green with spots on his back and he's short and fat, very cute. I even found a candle yesterday that has a coloured flame on it, and the flame is red, so I am thinking I will make that the dragon's breath.

    There are heaps of ideas tho, its just up to your imagination.

    But I think Vanita is on the money with the Pup thing!

    It all depends on what he really likes, has he got a favourite toy? Even if its a Monkey or a Giraffe, you could use that, or even if its a block, well that's easy too.

    I am going out today and early next week shopping for the big event. We only have family and a couple of Coby's little mothers group friends coming, but there are still a few who will be there....about 40 (DH has a big family)

    We're off to the MCHN today to be weighed. Hope he's put some on as he didn't put anything on at the last weigh which meant nothing for 5 weeks. I said to DH that I hope that Pup had put on some weight or I might be in for a talking to by the nurse. DH sniggered and said they might send child services around to make sure I was feeding him!!! OMG!!!

    After MCHN we have our mums group. Pup was sick last month so we missed out, and I'll be there have been some changes in the bubbies!

    Brooke OMG Stoopid woman Dion just eats all the paper he finds :eek:

    I thought Dion was nearly 10 kg, but he was weighed yesterday and he's 9.5, put on 250 gms in a month, so hes lighter than I thought ( getting confused in my old age LOL)

    Hay, hope you have a good weighing in!~!!!

    Hi girls

    Just passed level 9 so I have only level 10 and therefore just 3 more weeks of Danish school to go! Thank god, I am so over it now! I can't wait to have more time on my hands to do something else - like finally enjoy being a SAHM.

    But there is a lot of pressure here to get kids into childcare ASAP and for me to be in the workforce - I feel it from all circles - family, acquaintances etc. It is because everyone has their kids in by 12 months. I just think its too early for Alex - but I am meeting a lot of resistance. The idea is the child experiences the social aspect - meeting other kids, learning to share and be part of a group. I hope that by being with him and taking him to playgroups, the playground - he can be with other kids. I also plan to make one or two more (kids) myself. The thing is, I just think he's too young to go to school!!! Once he's there, then its big school until he's 17, then its uni then its work. I want him to have some time at home with his mumma I guess.
    Sorry that was a bit of a vent wasn't it? I don't think my sisters have had the same pressure in Australia, so it is a cultural difference i think.
    DH says I am CEO of Al's childcare, so whatever I think, he supports, but I also believe he is getting the same pressure from his family and friends about it too.

    phew

    Hayseed - how are you after the weigh in?

    Brooke - good to know Maya isn't starving hey! Far out! You expect more from professionals. Yes they are cuties - even when the drawers are emptied and the mobile phone is being pounded against the fridge and they are wriggling away with a dirty nappy and bottom and feet and they are up and down in their beds etc etc its all forgotten and they are, bottom line......Cuties.

    Vanita- jeez when do you sleep? Wow you are a supermum!!!! And good that you don't have any probs getting Dion to eat LOL!

    Bel - cute idea with the dragon cake with the red flame candle! he will love it.

    Hope you all have a great weekend. We have a long weekend here and there is a Carnival and sunshine forecast...so hopefully we will be out a fair bit.

    Congrats on passing level 9 Deb, WTG!!!! I know what you mean, its sad there is sooo much pressure over there for childcare etc, yep there isnt any here. I am thinking of putting Rianna in for 1 day a week for the socialisation issue etc, and she is nearly 3 ( I keep putting it off) The twins went in for one day a week after they turned 2, until kinder That is all my kids go to childcare, other than that my mum b'sits or Dh is home ( he works shift work too) so I believe my kids are quite well rounded KWIM??? Well if Dh isnt under any impression that you must, and if you are the CEO, STUFF EVERYONE ELSE!!!!!!!!!! You need to find a reply to the questions that puts people in their places , I dunno, maybe " so are YOU Al's mother now are you????"

    Oh and by the way I dont sleep much LOL. Last night one of the twins was up chuckin most of the night, so I am one berry tired momma today, and DH is working til 7pm, so me and the rugrats, and we cant even go out, and the weather here looks great, perfect for a lovely long walk or bike ride, might go see how Lakeisha is feeling, she hasnt chucked since 6am and has had a little bit of dry toast for brekkie.
    Yesterday went shoppign and have bought some of Dions b'day pressies, now need to think about a celebration!!!

    Hello girls,

    Sorry for my sporadic dropping in and out, am off at uni and teaching way too much to keep up with this thread you guys talk to much! I am insanely jealous that I can only drop in every now & then but oh well, what can you do?

    Just wanted to ask, how many naps and for how long are your 11mo babies sleeping now? Cole is still having a 1hr nap in the morning and 2.5hrs nap after lunch roughly. From memory Lucy had already cut down to just 1x 2hr nap by this age, but Coleman seems to be a much sleepier baby. How about you?

    Hope you're all well

    Kate, hope Kelsey's teeth cut through soon, not looking forward to more teeth. I am lucky _ there are 4 to shop for LOL. Thanks Lakeisha is fine now, just an overnight thing.

    Hi Caz good to see you !!! Dion is up and down with his sleeps too, never sure how much or when I always hope for at least an hour or two, and he sleeps twice a day still. Doesnt seem to make it with just one sleep. So probably all up 3 hrs during the day, on average.

    Caz, Pup has 2 sleeps very similar to Cole's. 1 hr in morning and 2.5 in afternoon.

    Well, Pup put on 180gms, so he now weighs 8.78kg!!! Wow, what a heavyweight (sarcasm there!!). But at least he put on.

    I couldn't believe how much the other bubs in the mum's gp had changed in 2 months. 3 are walking by themselves, all are crawling and the playing....well, there are tears and tantrums already!! Very cute! The bubs still don;t have any concept of playing together, but as all of them are the first baby, this is really the only time when they all see so many other bubs of the same age. They are just fascinated with each other.

    Kate, yeah, most of Pup's toys are Fisher price too. I knew of their websote, but didn;'t realise that you could subscribe to an update.

    Deb, you are a wonder at the 2nd language. Good on you.

    God, it is so late, I gotta go to bed.

    Hey Hay, he's just fine, at least your not looking at a sumo wrestler!!!
    Dion put on 200 gms last month, he just started off as a fat boofa, LOL. Kids dont actually "play" properly together til about 3. Dion was standing up by himself for nearly 5 mintues today, he was looking at a book, and I dont think he even realised he wasnt leaning on something. He has walked to me about once each day for the last few days,( and one was about 7 steps) but when I try to get him to walk to daddy, he sits down and crawls, odd hey!!!

    Kate, I got on and subscribed, but as I was browsing I was giggling, as we have sooo many of their toys. You know the house thingy where they crawl through the door?? Rianna got that for her 1st bday and it was new on the market then, Dion loves it, he's always ringing the door bell, and turning the lights on and off. funny.

    I had something profound to say and now its gone......buggar.

    A friend of mine had just told me she is expecting #2. This was the friend that was pg while I was still TTC #1. And I was so upset that she was pg and I couldn't keep a pg, as she wasn't even really intending to get pg so early. But she is my age, so she should also get a wriggle on about having a family. Her little one is 6 months older than Pup, so it makes sense really that she should be pg with #2 before me. I told her when I found out about her #1, that I should get some pg vibes off her - and it worked!!! So here's hoping it works again!!!

    Well, I think that O has come and gone and we did BD for a couple of nights, so hopefully...fingers crossed.....

    Hi all. Just a flying visit as I'm busy trying to get organised for Paris. 8 sleeps but who's counting. Only got the $$ to sort out - tickets, passport, insurance etc all done. Just having to wash everythign to pack for both DH and I, and also for the kids to take to Mum's. About to go out and wash and vaccuum the car too, then vaccuum the house, although that will need doing again before we go.

    Blake's doing fine although still not sleeping well. I think it's still a teeth issue. He's taken to pushing a block trolley around and is sooo cute. I hope he doesn't start walking whilst we're away. Viv started walking 2 days after her first birthday so heres' hoping he does the same so we don't miss it.

    Not much other news.

    Hay, fingers crossed for TTW.

    Kate, look after yourself!

    Love to everyone.

    Hay good luck TTC, I had a friend whom tried for 6 yrs, and I fell pg with the twins, not on purpose, I felt sooo guilty that I was and with 2! and she couldnt seem to get there, but when I was 6 mths pg, she fell pg too!!!! Then they tried IVF for nearly 2 yrs, well I fell pg with Rianna ( again not on purpose) 3 mths later she had a successful IVF implantaion, so we used to joke that I had to be pg for her to fall pg, so it might be the same for you and your friend, you will be pg, when she is!!!!!
