    I have to get M weighed still, guessing she is well over 8kgs now.
    We go for her 8 month check-up in a few weeks wonder if she'll be 9kg by then.
    M has been up since 9am & she only slept 30mins for the whole day
    She crashed about 20 mins ago, About time too lol.

    mo - we had a wake-athon here yesterday too. 30 minutes between 10 am and 5pm. wooo....

    he's making up for it now by having a 2 hour+ this morning. monkey doo!

    he wants to crawl SO badly. every time i look at him he's up on all fours practising. he can do a one-legged crawl where he sort of drags the left leg as a dead weight and jimmies himself along with his right. so funny - he's determined. every time i put him in his cot he jacks his feet up on the bars to push off in crawl position. i hear him grunting and puffing away trying to master it.

    Morning everyone!

    Yay, I have my happy K back! He has been improving every day since I took him to the chiro last week. I didn't want to say anything, but the chiro said there was a bone in K's neck that was out that he liked to call the "mood" bone because it can affect your mood. He realigned it, but I was REALLY skeptical and thought it sounded a bit unbelievable. Well, I have noticed a big improvement in K's mood since then, he has been getting better every day. He is now generally happy and doesn't scream and arch his back any more. Hooray! I forgot all about what the chiro had said, but by Monday of this week I put 2 and 2 together and realised the chiro was right!!

    Mo - I hope Maddi sleeps more for you today! K only did short naps all day yesterday, it's so frustrating! Thanks for the link to the BB centre opening, I can't remember where I saw the address, but I'm sure there will be more info given closer to the date.

    Becky - IKWYM about the kids keeping each other awake! I get so stressed out about it sometimes. Joel is so noisy before he goes to sleep and when he wakes up. I could scream when his noise wakes up Kieran!

    Kate - Sounds like Lachlan is doing well!

    Kim - Glad Jasmine's early morning wake up was a once off! Wow, the girls are doing well with their weight, Jasmine is catching up to Chelsea! I keep forgetting to ask, how is Craig's foot now? I hope it's all healed up.

    Julia - Hope you're computer is up and running quickly! Thanks for popping in

    Viv - How cute, it won't be long until J has worked it all out! Yesterday must have been the day for bad sleep.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Hello ladies! I just thought I'd poke my head in and say hi - I'm TERRIBLE at keeping up with buddy threads. My little lady is thriving, and though she is growing much slower than her big sisters (about 2kg smaller than they were at this age) she is a lovely, healthy, lively little thing. She just popped two bottom teeth, learned to sit up, and is drooling and babbling all over the place. I have to say though, she is no where close to crawling! But then, my other two didn't until 11 months or so, either. She has also just started sleeping through! Hurray! She's done it two nights in a row, so I'm calling it a trend.
    How are your little ones eating? Mine nurses at 6:00am, and then has a BIG bowl of cereal, nurses at 8:30 and goes to bed. Gets up again around 11:00, eats another big bowl of veggies/fruit, and nurses again. Back to bed around 2:00pm, and sleeps until 4:30, or so. Again, another big bowl of cereal with veggies for dinner, and I nurse her. She nurses one more time around 7:00, and then down to bed for the night. I can not believe the amount of solid food she is eating! It seems that for such a little lady, she is taking in an awful lot in a day! I don't know where she is putting it!

    Can you believe our little people are over half a year old already! How did that happen!?

    I'll try to pop in again sometime soon, and see how everyone is doing!

    Trish - so glad to hear that you've got your happy baby back!

    Cricket - Hi!

    Ninja - how cute that J is trying to crawl


    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MINIMAX!

    Not much new with us, I've come down with a horrible cold so I hope that I dont pass it on to Tahlia. Just gave Tahlia some apples mixed with baby cereal before and she spat most of it back at me.. thats the 1st time she has done that, so I really think she doesn't like apples! I must admit though, the pureed apples dont taste very nice without any added sugar

    Hope everyone else is well

    Wow Kim, congratulations! I can only assume that's what your sig means (good eyes Mo)! Poor Craig, sounds like he is in a bit of pain at the moment. How did Jasmine go on her first flight?

    Mo - I'm sending nap vibes to Maddi today LOL!

    Kellie - At least Tahlia loves her vegies! Better to like vegies than sweet stuff. I'm sure she'll come around to it, try it again another time.

    Cricket - Nice to see you in here! Sounds like your bub is doing so well. Kieran has 6 b'feeds per day and usually has apple or pear in the morning and vegies or rice cereal (or both) in the evening.

    Thanks Mo and Trish.

    First flight....argh.....horrid....screamed, cried, wouldnt take bottle (or dummy but she refuses them all the time, but thought it might help). Thats was on the way up. On way home she fell asleep but bout 20 mins before landing started up....but was a feral flight and all the other kids and babies were screaming too!!!

    Aww...that's lovely news Kim, you make such beautiful babies!

    Yuck, the flight sounds terrible. I'm glad we don't have to fly anywhere atm, I don't think K would be a very good flyer.

    Nope Becky....i caved! At least i kept it a secret for a good 8 or so days :P

    Trish Jas isnt a good traveller full stop! She isnt fond of the car for more then 2-3 hours (argh so driving to NSW is out) and flying 90 mins is out (argh so flying to NSW is out). Conclusion: Family have to come to us from now on!!

    Kim - congratulations All the best for a H & H pregnancy. Maybe the baby will make an early arrival and you will have an 06,07 and 08 baby. I wonder if any of the other Octo-mums will have an announcement to make?!?!
    Trish - glad K is back to his normal self.

    Not much happening here. Just getting back into the work/home routine. Missing my little man terribly and trying to get home early enough to spend some time with him before bed. DH is doing a great job looking after L.

    I think we'll give up solids for a little while. He just doesn't seem to have the swallowing thing down. I think I might use a teether/feeder bag and see if I can get him interested in solids. Any tips on how to use them?

    Looking forward to my first Mother's Day.
