    Still here as well. I have still been working on getting Maggie into a nighttime ritual. I have had some success, but there is still a long way to go.

    Her mobility and curiosity can be a bit much at times, she is in to everything she shouldn't be and sometimes hurting herself in the effort. I must remember she is stronger than she looks. Her latest game now is to lurch backwards when we are holding her, we have worked out that she likes to be held upside down.

    She has 4 teeth now, 2 eye and 2 front bottom, so she is still chewing on everything, including chunks of concrete she finds in the backyard.

    Good to hear everyone is doing well. Oh, forgot, we have the family flying in for Maggie's birthday. Not sure what we will do, as we normally like barbeques. Must get thinking. I know our MG is just going to hold 1 party for all the kids.

    Hello everyone - can I pop back in here? It has been about 7 months since I have posted as life has been a tad hectic!

    Baby Finlay is 10months now and it absolutely gorgeous....he is still breastfed and growing like crazy.

    I haven't caught up with everyone's news (and I'm not sure if you all remember me) but it would be great to touch base with you all again

    Brooke - Maya has grown so much - what an angel! Hope that you are well and still loving motherhood!

    Looking forward to speaking with you all again

    Lots of love

    Hello there! Kate - oh my god - another baby...CONGRATULATIONS! That is great news...oooohh I wish I was pregnant - just not the right timing for us as I started a new job 3 months ago...I am so thrilled for you. How are you feeling??? Kelsey is lovely......so cute!

    Hi Belmarks - thanks for the welcome back. I have been working practically fulltime since Finlay was 3 months old, so hectic is an understatement...looking forward to this long weekend to relax. Just loving motherhood though and look forward to baby number 2! Your baby is gorgeous BTW!

    Better dash - my little man is all over the house....need to clean the floor...the house is just never clean!

    HAppy Easter to everyone...Brooke - great to be back in touch after all this time! Yes working and motherhood is difficult - my juggling skills are improving all the time! Lucky Adam is on the ball and helps out a lot..What is Maya's sleeping pattern now?

    Thanks for the compliments on baby Finlay - he is a large boy and is growing all the time...

    Can I ask a question? Sorry if you have already discussed this - but do you all cook seperate food for bubs or are they up to eating what you do? Also I am having trouble with breakfast items - all of a sudden Finlay doesn't want to eat the baby cereal, wheatbix or porridge - do you have any suggestions?

    Hope that the Easter Bunny was good to everyone!

    Hi Megan, welcome back! I came back just a few weeks ago too.

    CONGRATULATIONS Kate on your pregnancy! Wow! I also wish i was pg again now - cluckiness starting to set in esp as i went to the hospital to visit my cousin who just had a baby girl yesterday. Made me realise how far we'd come! I have no sign of AF yet so another pregnancy might be a while off for me yet Not that there was any sign of AF before i got pg (Evan was a clomid baby)!

    Evan is still waking once or twice during the night. Usually the first waking i can rock him for a couple of mins and pop him back in the cot, but the second waking i usually feed him and often he'll stay in bed with me, as he'll sleep in longer with me! I'm beginning to think though it's time to start not feeding him during the night. I'm sure its just comfort sucks. Has anyone been down this line? I don't mean CC or anything, just rocking him back to sleep again (and again and again probably!) until he gets the hang of it. Could be in for a long haul! is it worth it? Any thoughts?

    Evan is cruising around all the furniture now all the time. Can't seem to keep his bottom on the floor for more than a few mins now! He's very active and 'in to' everything!!! He is very very cute though - i love how he waves and claps and laughs and shakes his head!! He's just at a lovely stage now. Really enjoying being his mummy! :hbeat:

    wow, sorry about the essay - didn't mean it to turn out quite that long! Hope everyone has had a good Easter.

    Thanks Brooke, I might try the water thing tonight! Last night was a disaster! When Evan woke at 11pm I decided to rock him back to sleep. He went fine, but everytime i put him down in the cot he woke up again. So i repeated the process again and again until i'd had enough at 1am and i took him into our bed and fed him - he then slept until 7am. DH isn't thrilled about having Evan in bed with us, but he'll put up with it especially on nights like last night. Evan won't drink from a bottle, but tonight i think i'll try giving him water in a sippy cup if he won't go back to sleep in his cot after the first round of rocking!

    Thanks Brooke! Evans day sleeps aren't too bad. He has 2 sleeps during the day, usually around 9.30-11am and then 2.30-3.30pm. Except on days where we have to go out like today and they all get muddled up! Usually he's pretty good though. I always feed him to sleep, sometimes he'll still wake after one cycle and it's obvious he's not ready to get up so he usually does a quick burp and have a little rock/cuddle and he'll go back for another cycle.

    Hello Angel!! Wow - great to hear from you and look at a little Kynan! Time does fly you are right and I see on your ticker you are trying to make baby number 2? That is great news......please keep us posted so that I can get excited for you as I would love to be in your shoes! I often thought about you guys as well but was in a horendous place in my last job and just wasn't functioning very well! Felt so stressed that I thought that I was getting depression....but that is another story...please keep in touch! Are you still breastfeeding?

    Hi LG - good to hear from you again too! Hope that the sleeping thing gets better with Evan. Little Finlay slept through at 10 weeks, but he can now wake 2-3 times a night as his dummy falls out! Adam paves the way to his bedroom to put it back in thank god! I really regret having a dummy - will try and avoid it with number 2. Let us know how the plan with the water goes...

    Brooke - I missed you too! Totally thrilled that we are back in touch - I look forward to seeing little Maya grow into a little princess....she is such a good sleeper! I would kill for a 2 hour break in teh afternoon..Finlay wakes at about 5am (which suits as I have to go to work) and then goes down for another sleep at his nanny's place at 7am for 1-2 hours and then goes down again at lunchtimt for another 1-2 hours and then that is it!! He goes to bed at 6pm though so this is a good thing...I really don't think that he is getting enough sleep though as sometimes he can be a little cranky.

    I make all of Finlay's food as well - I have tried toast (he does like it) but ate all of his cereal this morning (it is still the baby cereal as he really doesn't like 'grown up' ones!) Hopefully this will change soon....

    Better dash - a glass of red wine is waiting for me!

    Speak to you all soon

    Megan

    YEY HAPPY 10 MONTHS MAYA!!!! =D> =D>

    Can't believe how quickly they are all growing up!! We'll be sending them off to school soon! LOL!

    I actually just pulled down an huge bag of hand-me-downs for Evan that i'd put away refusing to believe he'd ever be THAT big and they fit him! Some stuff is even too small :-k . Got some really lovely designer clothes from much better off than us cousins!! LOL!

    I went to have Evans feet fitted for shoes yesterday. I didn't get any in the end. His feet are too big for pre-walkers, and i can't see him really needing the walkers just yet except maybe for warmth and getting used to something on his feet. What is everyone else's thoughts on shoes? I do think that getting properly fitted and wearing good shoes are important for their developing back, and walking development etc. Just not sure if to wait until he is actually walking unaided.

    Anway, he is doing laps of my chair and letting me know that its time for a feed and sleep.

    Hi all,

    Just popping in quickly to say I'm still around, been reading all the posts, it's just by the time I read them all I don't get a chance to reply as usually one of the kids needs attention!

    MEGAN! Welcome back! Good to hear from you!

    About shoes - even when they first start to walk they recommend barefoot if possible, or very soft shoes. Makenzie has a couple of pairs of these soft shoe bootie things that were bought in Woolworths. They are just soft material with elastic around the ankle bit and that soft non-slip padding stuff on the bottom. She's got a couple of pairs in the 12-18 month size. You can also get socks with the "grip" soles on them. The bootie things are thick enough for use outside too.

    Kenzie is doing well, cruising furniture and trying to stand on her own. Cracks me up coz she lets go and stands for a couple of seconds then gets a panicked look on her face and grabs the furniture again. Think it will be a while before she walks though. Both my boys were walking at this age, but I'm glad she's not walking yet!

    Anyway, better go, someone is coming here at 11am to pick up some stuff and of course I need to go to the loo so no doubt the doorbell will ring while I'm in there LOL! Will try and get on later and do personals - DH has gone to Melbourne today so I'm home alone with the 3 kids, the boys are so hyped up today - that'll teach me to let them have Froot Loops for breakfast!

    Brooke, that's great that the naturopath has been able to sort your thryoid out! The thyroid has a huge impact on your general wellbeing doesn't it! I'm on meds ATM to control mine. The specialist wants us to complete our family in the next 2-3 years so I can have radioactive iodine treatment for it so we are desperately TTC!

    Megan, I'm so glad that things are going better for you now in relation to work. That's awesome that Finlay is still BF too, especially with you having to work. Well done!! Kynan is still BF as well (loves the boobies LOL) and usually has 2 full feeds + 2 snacks per day.
