    My DD2 is 13months old and has only just started pulling herself up to stand (within the last week she didnt crawl until after 11months) My DH noticed that she doesnt stand on her feet properly esp her left foot. It looks almost looks like she is trying to stand on the inside of her ankles iykwim. I took her too the GP this arvo to get her checked out and he says she has a severe case of out-toeing and has referred us to see an orthopaedic dr. He is concerned as although this can be common in premmies (she is not a premmie btw) he says normally it affects both feet equally and can fix itself over time however her Left foot is alot worse and he thinks that even if she does walk b4 18months she will have a limp. I have never heard of this and been Xmas have not been able to get through to book her appt for her referral. Just wondering if any of my fellow BBers have come across anything like this and what the out come was?
    Just thought i'd post this in here too so you guys know whats happening with Molly. Its from a thread i started last week. We have been lucky and have got into the specialist super quick so we will know the outcome hopefully in 2 wks.

    Hoody - hope everything is ok with Molly..

    Can't believe how much Kimmy is growing. We have had a few shocking nights with teeth and virus, but seem to have my happy girl back this morning (even if she did get up at 4.30).. Still not walking here. She can walk when she wants too, but obvioulsy doesn't need to walk in her mind.

    Out TTC journey was short lived.. We got a BFP on Xmas day, so think I will be due late August. Am off to dr on Friday to get referral to Ob and hopefully get a scan in the next few weeks to give us more of an idea when I am due.. (and those who have me on FB, no-one else knows yet except my parents, so please don't say anything)..

    Unfortunatly have to go at moment, gotta get me and miss K ready to go. DH already at work, so I have DC drop off today.. You would think since I have been up since 4.30 I would be ready, but nope.. lol

    Anyhow, hope you all had a nice Xmas break.. And a happy new year to come..

    Heather and Kimberley

    Welcome to BB and also to this thread.

    This thread is really slow but would be nice to have you around if you are happy to post. I have 2 girls who are 20 months apart. My youngest is the Nov bub.

    Thanks Hoodie.

    How do you find the age gap? I am a little nervous as I will have only 21 months as well.

    Hi everyone
    Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years.

    Sorry I have been MIA - away for Christmas and busy at work.

    My how things keep changing. Jacob is just getting bigger, more agile and more cheeky every day. He has been really good lately, but since coming back from holidays (we were in Melb for Christmas) he has been teething and not settling too easily. I hope that sorts itself out soon. Looks like he is finally getting his 7th and 8th teeth. I finally finished up all my BFing at around 13mths and Jacob has transitioned really smoothly. I can't believe how long it lasted and its so nice to have my body back again too.

    Hoody - for you. I hope Molly is ok. Hopefully the specialist will have some good news for you.

    Heather - Congrats on the BFP. I am so happy for you that it happened so quickly for you. Hope all is well.

    Mechanical_Bull - welcome. As Hoody said this is a pretty slow thread ( and I would be one of the main culprits). Congrats on #2.

    DB - Yay on the BFing. Its been a long journey hasn't it. But totally agree, so nice to have your body back. I feel more like a woman than "just" a mum iykwim.

    Not much other news. Sweltering in the heat at the moment, so might jump in the pool soon.

    Mechanical bull- I found the age gap ok there are pros and cons like with everything. I found it difficult for the 1st 3 months but i guess with any bub it is iykwim. My DD1 has asthma and alot of allergies so is quite sickly so with this and a new born i struggled. I also had lots of issues BFing so really felt a bit down for a little bit. In having said that i love having my girls so close together. They absolutely love eachother. Once we got on top of DD1's health issues and resolved the feeding issues with Molly thing just got easier and easier. My DD1 dropped her day sleep very early so i do struggle to get things done with a toddler and baby but i manage. I am a very organised person and think that this helps. Just little things like every morning i lay out their PJ's and clothes for the following day. I plan meal etc etc. Some ppl might think i am a little OTT but its what works for me. I also put DD1 into DC 1 day a week when Molly was 9wks old so i had a little bit of 1 on 1 with her and also a day to do my shopping and run errands etc. The biggest thing that i wasnt prepared for was the fact that DD1 just wanted to always play with Molly so she wasnt "safe" on the floor when she was so little. Infact DD1 broke her collar bone when she was 5 months old by "helping" her roll over. But like i said with time thing got easier and now things are great. They are best mates and do everything together. My DD1 is very caring and loves to play "mummy". If DH would let me i'd have another now so i guess it didnt scare me off.

    I guess only time will tell really.

    DS was a dream baby and still is fantastic at 14 months old. Actually I got more sleep when he was a newborn than I do now, just split into 4 hour blocks. I guess that's one thing that worries me. I don't think I can expect to have an easy breezy baby again. I did not have my first sleepless night until DS was 11 months old and that was because he was sick. Just the one night thus far. He's never screamed or even cried really... He communicated in other ways and was/is rarely upset or unhappy.

    Hi Mechanical Bull - interesting name by the way! Welcome to our little forum. It is very quiet in here but nice to see a few posts.

    Hoody - sorry to hear about Molly's foot. Hopefully she will be ok. I have never heard of this, although a friend with a 17 month old who isn't walking yet got his foot looked at and it curves around. Apparently it may have not formed properly in the womb, but physio and lots of practice walking is helping him greatly. LOL about TTC#3! Glutton for punishment

    June - yay on the bfing! It has been a rollercoaster ride thats for sure. I miss it sometimes, but I think it is missing the "baby" phase more than the actual feeding iykwim?

    Heather - congrats on the BFP!!! Will keep mum on FB although I am not on there much anyway. Bring on the first trimester rollercoaster again huh? Good luck with everything.

    As for us, Caden is turning into a little champ, and SO much easier than when he was a bub. He tries to say words and makes the sounds, like gird for bird, etc, but there aren't too many clear words as yet. He is so clever though, he understands instructions and will follow them, like "get a book and bring to mummy" - he will grab his book and come and sit in my lap - sooo cute!

    As for TTC#2 I am still not ready. Work is going so great and I got an excellent performance review, plus some study plans this year. So for now I think I will try not to think about it until the end of the year then see where we are at. Maybe even next year??

    I got my test results back that I mentioned a few weeks ago. Bad news, I have high-grade lesions in my cervix that need to be lasered off. I am having the procedure on the 23rd of January. I am not too worried, it is only slightly higher risk of pre-term delivery and doesn't affect fertility. It is still not nice to know something like that is lurking in your body though

    I have been on a health kick of late to get the body into shape and enjoying a cleaner, more healthy lifestyle. So far it feels really great, I have tons of energy and am thinking clearer than ever!

    Well, enough babbling, I am meant to be sleeping!

    Have a great weekend everyone,

    Well Molly's appt went OK today. A good thing is for now we do nothing and then in 6 months she will need orthopedic inserts for her shoes. On the down side its not just her feet and legs its ALL her ligaments and joints, ankles, knees, hips, wrists etc etc. She has very lax ligaments so she is SUPER flexible etc. Apparently this is why she stands funny as she has trouble getting her balance. The specialist says she may walk in 2 wks or 6 months it all depends but when she does she WILL more than likely have a limp and it will take her longer to master it. He did say that hopefully over time her Achilles tendon and muscles in her legs would become stronger and help take some of the "stress" off her ligaments etc and give her a more 'normal' stride. He was a little concerned about her hips so we had to have Xrays and i will get a call to see weather they are ok or if he will need to see us again sooner.

    Just a quick one - Hoody glad that Molly's appt went well. Orthopaedic inserts for her shoes is a big improvement on the possibility of surgery and that sort of thing. Hopefully her hips are ok, but maybe with age things will just tighten up, as the specialist mentioned would happen with her legs. Thinking of you.

    All quiet here. Jacob has been teething the last week so we now finally have 8 teeth (god I so don't want him to get molars!!). And he is loving his new family day care mum thank heavens.

    Sorry busy at work, so this is short, thinking of you all

    Hoody- sorry to hear that your journey is still unresolved, although knowing that some foot inserts might help must be a relief. Maybe Molly will be a gymnast with those beautifully flexible joints?

    June - I hear you on the teething, Caden has 12 teeth now, although the last two molars are only half cut. They haven't been so bad actually, not compared to the others.

    Pretty quiet here, working hard, 4 days this week which was a bit tiresome, and the heat here, 40 degrees and no aircon has taken its toll, but today is cooler at 33 degrees.


    Caden going great, very bubbly and chatty and generally wonderful

    Have a great weekend

    Hey all! I hope you all remember me, it's been quite awhile since I've been here. I have a LOT of catching up to do. Cameron started walking back at the beginning of October and insists on getting into everything which leaves me little to no computer time during the day. He has one long nap a day but that's when I get my housework done. I couldn't even get on after he went to bed as he was going through a stage where he would only go to bed if I went to bed with him. Starting just this past week though we are now able to put him in his bed at 9:00 (any earlier does not work) with his soother and tell him a story and he pretty much goes right to sleep. He sleeps in a playpen in our room still though as it is the only way he sleeps through the night. If we put him in his crib he just keeps waking up crying.

    He is a very vocal little guy and already has quite a few words. He says momma and dadda a lot but I still don't think he really associates those titles with my husband and I. He says them rather randomly (like to the cashier at the grocery store lol). His favourite word to say is "tickle" which he says over and over while tickling his feet or his tummy. He also likes to say "no no no" while he wags his finger at me. He is able to sign a few signs too like "hungry" and "dangerous/ouch"

    He is also a very loving little guy and loves to give hugs. He will even give strange ladies hugs and ask them to pick him up for a cuddle. He is such a little flirt! I had an appointment at the bank the other day and had to wait for a bit and he kept running up to various women who worked there and hugging/flirting with them. He even ran into one ladies office to snuggle with her. The all adored him and loved the attention. he's lucky he's so darned cute!

    He has 12 teeth now including 4 molars (boy those were not much fun) and it looks like his 4 eye teeth are coming in as well. He eats pretty much anything and everything now except of course things like raw carrots. He's not super picky but he's finicky. One day he'll devour something and beg for more and the next day he'll turn his nose up at it. He's not super keen on potatoes or rice but he LOVES yogurt and any kind of fruit, especially oranges. We are still BF and have no plans to give it up any time soon. He never took to a bottle and was slow to take a sippy cup, so I want to make sure he gets enough fluids. Plus I do quite enjoy our cuddle time. He is only BF 1-3 times in a 24 hour period anyways and mostly wants it when he's tired or has bonked his head.

    I love how he understands more now. He sees me making him dinner and runs to his highchair and tires to climb in. Today he reached into the fridge, grabbed a miniature orange, and then put it on his high chair tray and tired to climb in. When he couldn't do it he started pointing andf saying "dat dat dat" until I put him in it and peeled the orange for him. If I ask him to get a book he runs and grabs a book then climbs into my lap to read it.

    We had our first experience with the stomach flu over New Years. He projectile vomited a couple of times in my living room before he started to feel better. Thankfully a friend of mien lent me her carpet shampooer to clean the carpet and the sofa.

    We adore the little guy so much we have finally decided we are ready for #2. I have just started a new cycle and I just started temping so we are going to start trying this cycle.

    This is turning into a novel so I'd best wrap it up. I'm looking forward to reading how all you guys are doing.

    TwinSis- so lovely to hear from you it certainly has been a long time
    Cameron sounds like he is doing wonderfully. GL with TTC no 2 i hope you get your soon.

    Well still not walking here and i doubt with Molly's hips/ligaments it will be any time soon. Oh well makes her feel like my "baby" for longer iykwim.

    I am so jealous of you guys going for no2 and heather for you been pg. I know in my head that my 2 are more than enough work and TBH i dont enjoy been pg at all but i guess its just my maternal instinct iykwim to breed. DH wont have a bar of anymore and after just getting back to my pre Molly weight i'd be scared to death if i found out i was pg but i think i'd be secretly pleased too.

    Well its getting late and tomo night DH comes home from Vietnam (thank goodness its been a long 2.5wks) so off to finish his book work so its all up to date for him.

    I'm sorry to hear about Molly's leg. My friend's baby has something similar going on but luckily he seems to be outgrowing it on his own. I hope Molly gets sorted out soon.

    Hey Twinsis! I normally check this link to see if anyone has updated, but must have missed the post . Cameron sounds like he is doing wonderfully. What a charmer huh? He sounds quite similar to Caden developmentally, with the words and sign language and understanding things. Caden too will climb into my lap for "book" time. He prefers to read it himself, pointing at pictures and babbling away. Congrats on the BFing by the way, what an accomplishment!

    Hoody - I hear you on the TTC front. I am not TTC yet but have kind of pencilled in October after Caden has turned 2. I am looking forward to it, but not as much as the first time . I guess this time I know what to expect and am not as stressed about how long it takes. I would prefer a 3 year gap between bubs, and after my pre-eclampsia with Caden I really don't want to be in 3rdTri in summer - too hot! Therefore it will have to be the end of this year for us.

    Heather - Congratulations hun! I am really bad with emoticons and don't know how you get all the flashing icons and everything, so the dance head will have to do. I only found out cos Hoody mentioned it and I noticed your sig. WELL DONE! It is funny, your bub will be due around the time we start TTC .

    Well, as for us, it is all good here except we have eye teeth coming in very grumpy baby.

    I had a Lletz (sp?) procedure done recently to treat the high-grade lesion that was discovered in my recent pap. They basically laser a layer of skin off the cervix (TMI - sorry). I also got an infection after it (I thought it was just AF ) so that has been a fun journey. It is also one of the reasons I want to TTC sooner rather than later - I would prefer to minimise risk of pre-term delivery as much as possible.

    Other than that, all is swell. Take care of yourselves AND bubbas, and hopefully I will be in here soon to post again!

    Thanks Twinsis, yeah it was a bit ouchy, apparently there is a 5% chance of it coming back, so fingers crossed it stays away. It is not really an area that I want too much removed, IYKWIM.

    I hope all you Melbourne girls are safe and your families are ok? You are in my thoughts, I sincerely hope you are ok and if there is anything I can do from here, please let me know.
