    Love the photo girls, its a shame Leila isn't it. I wish we could have all been there. Must have been great getting to know each other IRL.

    Leanne well done on the bargins, I hope you have a good night tonight.

    Arte good to see your back, whats the new place like?

    Pretty average day here, DH has a gastro bug so hasn't been much help. I managed to get all the groceries done though so we can just hang around home tomorrow. Does everyone else have a million 1st birthdays to go to? We have! I went through my baby cookbook, which I forgot I had and there is so many things we want to try. I will post some of the good recipes when I've tried them.

    Gosh it is soooo good to be able to put faces to names now Cally, Clare and Pregpan. I still can't get over how gorgeous all our babies are! The doofus who took the pic needs a right stern talking too though - I can't believe they didn't think that you would want Leila in the photo too

    Far too much chatter in the last thread to catch up on it all LOL. So glad the meet was lovely - even if I am still a lovely shade of green

    Not a lot happening here - am one child short tonight (and maybe the next night too - not sure on that yet LOL) as Lindsay is having a sleep over at a friends house tonight. And I have been trying to catch up on folding clothes - my loungeroom floor is covered with them LOL.

    I did catch talk in the last thread about toys for babies - we haven't even thought about Christmas yet. We have his birthday covered - we are getting him a bookshelf and a few small toys (a duplo harvester and a little tikes truck). For Christmas though it will probably be a few tonka's or FP little People etc. We have baby toys up the waazooo LMAO, so we don't need anything like that.

    We don't have any first birthdays coming up luckily LOL - we want all the attention on our first birthday Boy We will be having a party for him though. I need to start doing the invites soonish I suppose.

    Pregpan, I would be direct with the FDC lady and tell her that you would rather he ate what you provided and if she thinks he needs more to let you know so you can send more food with him. Besides that how is FDC working for you?
    With the breastfeeding, I am hoping he will self wean sometime over the next year. Actually, it is the only way he will go to sleep and I won't be surprised if he doesn't wean until some therapist convinces him that girls don't like 27 year olds that still need mummy's boobies to go to night-nights lol

    MD, thanks for the pic, I am so jealous. You all look lovely and what a beautiful bunch of bubbies! You didn't lose E's baptism pics did you? Hope not. That is a terrible fear of mine to lose all my photos. I think I will make some more recent back ups.

    Toys: Will loves the ball pool, he dives in and out all the time. Other toys he likes are - bead maze, Little People (car garage), balls, books

    Birthdays: We don't know many little kids here, so his is the only one but I haven't planned anything yet.

    Sherie, I have had masses of washing too, we finally got all our stuff from storage but the linen smelt a bit funny after sitting for 4 months so I had to wash it all.

    Rainy, that was rude about the other mum saying bugger. I bet she is struggling a bit with motherhood and so assumes that anyone having another bub close together must have had an accident. I am hoping to join you and Ange in spew-ville soon, DH has agreed to TTC number 2. Unfortunately we have to wait until next month because I want to go to a friends wedding in March and they won't let pregnant ladies fly after 36 weeks. I have only had one AF though, so I am not even sure when I am fertile or anything.

    Renee, hope Rory is feeling better and your DH is home soon

    Pregpan, Happy Birthday?????

    Well, we are all settled into the new house. It is nice to have our own stuff and not be cramped in a tiny holiday chalet. Will is walking so well now. He can change direction easily, crouch and re-stand so he can pick things up without having to plop down and he doesn't need his hand in the air for balance. He can kick his ball and chase it and kick it again and can throw it to us. He can also find daddy's nose now. I am constantly amazed at how quickly he learns.

    Was a good catch up - shame I had to leave early to pick up the tyre that DH got a puncture in the day before! Was good to meet the others, I had pictured Pregpan as a blonde so now I know what she looks like!

    Jaz - Target have big displays up of the toys that will be on sale, there are heaps of the bigger ones that they are doing rainchecks on, so you can go in any time over the sale period and order it. The smart trike is one of them so that is what we are going to do. Then we can pick it up at our leisure rather then trying to negotiate the pram and the trike and the crowds.

    Arte - I think K might be getting a bead maze as well for her birthday, they look great. She has a toy she loves at mothers group but I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Glad everything is going well over there - did they sort out the deck, is W going to fall off?

    Christmas is still far too far away for me to be thinking about toys. I thought I was doing well planning for her birthday already!! I'm also conscious that we are only one income at the moment, so even though we would save money in the sales now, we're still spending money that we don't have a lot of until I go back to work. Plus I'd be worried that she might be over whatever toy I get by the time she gets it!

    I noticed tooth number 5 yesterday! Top right. Sneaky one popping up with no warning.

    Oz - hope DH gets over his gastro soon. Took mine 8 days before he was comfortable looking after K when he had it.

    Had Indian takeaway last night and the leftovers are looking very appealing in the fridge so might have to have a second breakfast of that.

    Cally, Happy 10 months to Katie The deck isn't fixed but they are putting another house out the back during the summer so I guess we will mainly use the front yard anyway.

    hi everyone
    md - thanks for posting the photo - it's fantastic
    cally - thanks for that - i'll just wait a few days after the sale starts. Have you done any research on the smart trike?
    leanne - great that you had a good night last night. Did you get a sleep in this morning?
    noni- it's nice when your list of friends increases
    arte - your little man is so clever.

    Hannah is not sleeping well at night, and it's all my fault. I think i'm going to have to resort to a little bit of comforted crying. I rock her to sleep and during the night when she wakes up, i get into bed with her (she has one in her room) She has a dummy too, so i'm doing everything wrong lol. Any tips?

    Lol Jazmum too sweet, you are such a caring mum. Maddie has a dummy too and I'm not giving it up for awhile yet, I can just imagine how that would go down! I've also been doing a naughty thing, feeding her back to sleep (at bedtime and during the night whoops)!!! I dont know I guess being the middle of the night and being tired, we do whatever is necessary? I tried controlled crying last night, it was so hard I gave her a bottle in the end. Haha so no real tips I can offer sorry, but just to let you know your not the only one.

    Noni - Yay for a having a new friend! Wow Asha has a varied diet, lucky girl.

    Leemar - Thats great that you had a good night out, who took the kids? Nanna?

    Cally - I am the same with the toy sales, I know they are on special now but its just more money to fork out that I just dont want to think about it atm. Doesnt help that we have a holiday coming up to save for and just got the water & shire rates which are $2000 between them!! Not to mention we are hoping to get married in Bali next yr, whoever said money doesnt make you happy was lying hey!? Oh DP & I are major indian takeaway fans hehe.

    Trillian - What are these FP Little People that i keep hearing about!?

    Arte - I am amazed at Will's developments. Maddie loves the ball pit too. I am so excited about you ttc, thats great!

    Oh oh MD I am so excited, I showed the wheelie bug video on you tube to M's nanna, as she wants birthday/christmas ideas. So M will be getting one from Nanna, they look great!

    thanks mm - you're a good mummy too Little People are everywhere at our place - we pretty much have a whole village set up in the girls's play room. There's a house, farm, garage, school, playground, train/station and heaps more that you can buy. They have buttons in them that make sounds and the little people and animals live in them. Jess got the train for her first birthday and we've just added to it over the years. The girls still play with them.

    pregpan - it does work for Hannah and i, but i don't think i've woken up in my own bed for the past month. Dh is missing me. It would be so great if we could all meet one day!!

    Haha Pregpan, the random birthday wishes are my fault lol. I thought that you said a while ago that your DH was going away the following week and missing your birthday? I think I got it mixed up a bit though LMAO

    MM, little people are a Fisher Price thing, they are just little people (original name lol) that have cars, buses, planes they can go in and bigger buildings like barns and car garages etc. W loves his, he pushes the cars down the ramp and looks for them at the bottom. Ouch about the council rates etc. I don't miss that part of owning a house!

    Noni, good to hear you are finding more friends. It really makes a big difference if you can get out of the house and talk to different people sometimes.

    Leanne, glad your night was good, and well done on the bargain shopping!

    JaZaH, no tips for sleeping here. Over the past 6 weeks W has improved from waking every hour to only waking 3-4 times a night and I think that is great lol. Since we moved house he has been waking up more again, probably about 4-6 times a night but I am really hoping that it is only a setback and he is not going back to the old pattern. We still full time co-sleep and feeding him is the only way to get him back to sleep. I live in hope that he will grow out of it, don't want to breast feed a teenager.

    Other toys that get a lot of use here are: Duplo, W loves to bang it together and sometimes the pieces stick together which he thinks is very cool. The other thing is a rubber snake. It is about a metre long and he likes to rattle and shake it around.

    Noni good to hear your getting out and being social. L could eat all day long too. I have 4 first birthdays coming up not including Logans.

    I am buggered tonight, L slept through last night but I woke up at 4am coughing very typical lol. Have done all the invites to Logans birthday now I just need to post them and decide on what cake I want to make. We have a bit of a busy week this week so might not be on much but will try to keep up.
