    B was 8.6kg at 10 months (last Thursday). Tooth no 8 is now through - I swear they're popping up like weeds here!
    The fussy eating seems to have stopped so I can blame it on his cold. He does still do the "I have to feed myself with the spoon" thing but usually only for the last couple of spoonfuls. He gets so excited when the food makes it into his mouth and gives himself a laugh and a clap!
    The cold also seems to have passed, though he still gets a runny nose when he cries. And because the cold has settled, the sleeping also seems to be getting back to normal. A few nights of getting up in the night, or taking awhile to settle at night is a shock to the system when you're not used to it! I know, I am spoilt...
    GL to all the Bonds babies! DH wanted me to put B in, but I doubt if he was picked that he'd stop crying and clinging long enough to have his photo taken, so there'd be no point!
    Marni - Yay for the walking! Everyone says that B looks too small to be walking too. I hope that once Phoebe feels better that the sleep will improve again too. I was surprised that it only took a few nights for B to get back to his usual self.
    Tina- Is Zen in the Bonds comp? Can you post a link so I can check him out and vote for him? And same to anyone else whose bubs are in it too.

    hi all, ive been reading, but not commenting, too lazy lately.
    miss E is 9.5 months now, time has flown, we are planning her birthday party already!
    she has 8 teeth, so hopefully we get a break before the next set!
    we saw her physio and have been signed off, she is advanced, and the physio wants us to not encourage her (walking tentatively)
    she is double jointed like me, so we have to watch her pelvic stability.
    she now says mama, daddy, boobie, ta, bye, mau (want), ma-i (dont want), yay, wheeeeeee!
    we also read books (she loves them) and we now have one of those balls with the shapes and you put the differnt shapes into thier hole, and pull the ball apart to get the shapes back (if you know what i mean) as shes been hiding things arund the house (keys/shoes/remote)she only just under 9kg, so still underweight, but thats genetic.
    she boobs like a champ, but when we move house she will start day sleeps in her own room, and keep cosleeping at night.
    is anyone else still waiting for thier cycle to return?

    Trish - wow...i see by your ticker you are ttc no 2 already! we are stopping at one. he was a trial to have and we are so happy to just be able to give him all we can. that may change but I doubt it My cycle returned when Zen was about 6mths (darn it!!).

    Zenith is in the Bonds comp...
    Bonds Baby Search 2011 - Zenith John R

    it would be so lovely for him to win...validate our belief in him being the cutest thing on two legs lol..but with 52000 babies ntered and only 10 being chosen *shrugs*
    I'd love at least one of our bb bubs to get in.

    Zen is being a little needy, I think his teeth are hassling him heaps...poor little fella.

    Tina we had troubles with DD and I have Sheehans Syndrome, so we might not be able to have more kids, so we arent going to stop trying just in case. Its a moot point anyways as I havent got my cycle back yet.
    Miss E is in the Bonds comp too, but I dont hold much hope. WE know how gorgoues they are, thats the main thing haha

    I have 2 girls - I think this will be it! My cycle isn't back yet either. Every so often I get the tiniest amount of blood when I wipe (TMI, sorry) but nothing ever seems to come of it.

    Phoebe still isn't 100%, yucky bum and not eating much. I just wish she would start eating again, she doesn't even want sandwiches. She would live on ham and grapes if I let her!

    We got a kitten on the weekend! A little light ginger girl. She is a Macy and a rescue cat. Lots of fun and trouble! Phoebe is just walking around chasing her yelling 'cat' She says cat more than mum now!

    Wow, sounds like your little ones are all talkers! B is a babbler but I have no idea what he's saying most of the time. Da-da is his word for pretty much everything, including Daddy. He calls his grandma Ga-ga (but lots of other stuff is ga-ga too!) and I am da-da or mu-mmy. He also says doo-doo, doh-doh, aaah, na-na, ne-nay, la-la, ba-ba, oooh, tth (when he sees a bird, kangaroo or kookaburra in the garden) and a couple of other sounds. Num-mum is yum. I think birdie is dir-dy and duck is da, but because he generalises it's hard to tell. He likes to copy us too now, so tries really hard to imitate what we say.
    He loves rhyming and repetative sounds and 'funny' words like oh-oh, wooosh, snot(!), silly-billy. Oh and animal sounds and actions too. When we say 'puppy doggy, woof woof', he pants like a dog, does a kissing kind of sound for 'fishy' and sometimes says 'sss' for snake.
    He has a whole bunch of things he'll do on command too - sit, stand, 'bring ____ to mummy', wave, look, find___, 'are there any birdies outside?' (he goes to the window and looks out),clap hands, shake hands, shake legs, high five, touch your (or mummy's) nose/ear/hair/head, pat _____, pop your balls (he has a ball popper), bounce, dance, peek a boo (he hides and pops out from behind all sorts of furniture or covers himself with a towel or blankie then takes it off!) plus he will get almost any of his toys if we say them by name (a few we have to point to as well). He also makes a kissing sound if we say 'kiss' and make the sound.

    He's such a confident walker (and runner) now. DH and I took him to the shops for shoes yesterday and he kept running away from DH - waaay too much energy for us at the moment. We're now one of 'those' families with an uncontrollable child (bring on the child harness!).

    How's everyone's bub napping? B still does two naps most days but I've noticed the first is getting a little later (closer to 10am) and longer (almost 2 hours) and the second is getting later (2:30-3pm) and shorter (40 mins max. or non existant like yesterday!).

    And what does everyone have planned for their bubs birthday? We're having a mum's group party and a friends/family one at home. Nothing too fancy, just a couple of hours with nibbles and a cake. I'm finding it hard to figure out what time though because of changing nap times. I have a feeling if I make it in the middle of the day when B is normally awake now, that he'll change his sleep and end up wanting to nap in the middle of it! What about pressies? We figure he'll get enough from everyone else so am pretty much sticking to what he needs. ie winter clothes, shoes, sleeping bag which he'll get as he needs them so probably before his birthday anyway! My parents are starting his Duplo collection for him but not sure what else he might get.

    Went to a playdough party on Friday so B got to play with (read 'eat') play dough for the first time, which he enjoyed. And now I have a no-cook playdough recipe to try out! His socialisation skills seem to be improving and he's less clingy and cry-y now he can walk, especially in a small group. The more people, the more clingy he is.

    He loves feeding himself with a spoon now, so much so that half the time if I do it, he pulls the food back out and eats it again with his fingers! He makes such a mess though and cleaning up (him, the chair and floor) after breakfast takes about 15 mins and requires a change of clothes and sometimes a hairwash (for me, that is!). It's mostly finger food now anyway. He loves sandwiches, toast, fruit and savoury muffins, zucchini slice, risotto, veges and salad (new faves are roast beetroot and eggplant). He LOVES meat and is a big pear fan at the moment too.

    Anyway, that's enough from me. Hope you're all well and that bubs are too.

    OK, here's a link to some pics of Boz I took today when we did some fingerpainting for the first time. Amazingly he didn't eat any!

    Hey everyone

    Jleigh- Didn't realise you are now on FB. Boz is adorable, those pics are soooo cute!!! He sounds like such a clever little man, amazing how much they grow and learn so much.

    Marni - AF not back yet, your lucky!! I got mine back at 7 months, had two right back on 28-30 day cycles but it's now been about 7 weeks since my last one - no not UTD just think BF still is confusing it lol.

    Been pretty busy down here, house is 3 weeks away from handover YAY and by the time we do floors it will be easter, which we are going away for nearly a week camping, so won't be moving in until after that but the end is in sight!!

    A is getting cheekier and cheekier by the day. She is now standing and getting pretty confident at letting go for a few seconds, she's also a bit of a climber so reckon she's getting into as much mischief now as she will walking. We now have four teeth with another 3 all sitting there ready to go, the poor little munchkin is still happy as during the day but nights are leaving a lot to be desired with waking 3-4 times but quickly settled again with a pick up or BF. She was 11 months on tuesday can't believe in under a month she will be 1......my baby is a little girl

    We are thinking some of her night sleep issues are because she's in the room with us and getting older is alot more aware of her surroundings - the other night my rolling over in bed set her off, so can't wait for her to be in her own room and hoping that will settle her again.

    She's a little parrot and copies you laughing, coughing, facial expressions and actions.

    Phoenix - Yay on handover!! It will be so nice for you to have your own place again. Hopefully her own room will help with sleep! Hasn't here but you may be one of the lucky ones And I am also scared about the approaching first birthday

    JLeigh - Boz is gorgeous! He looks cheeky and happy. I love seeing photos of the other bubs in this thread - I feel like I kind of know them even though I havn't met them IYKWIM? He looks so mobile too. I would love to add you on facebook, if thats ok? Or you can add me - Limarni Wyers

    Phoebe is getting so big and clever. She walks everywhere and loves to climb on the lounge now, which I don't like so much. We have a new kitten who she chases all around the house! Her favourite word is still cat, but mum is still heard alot! She loves going for walks in the pram, which is great cause we only have the car on weekends (DH needs it for work) and babbles alot. Oh and my cycle returned last week Have to be happy with the 10 1/2 months!

    Sleep still isn't great, wake alot overnight. Starting next week I am going to only offer water between 10 and 6. We are also going to take the dummy away. I will still settle her with cuddles but not with BF. She lost weight last month but I think that is because she is so much more active, she never sits still!

    Marni - the water thing worked well here and so did DH getting up to her but the past few weeks if she has any slight idea I'm there (ie if I happen to sniff, cough, sneeze, roll over or even move in bed) and it's all over I have to get up to her, so hoping that in her own room if DH gets up to her that will be much easer for her to settle again. With her standing in bed self-settling has gone out the window during the day again but know that will be back on track soon enough.

    How cute her chasing the kitten, though I'm sure it doesn't think sometimes I pity our dog once A is walking, she terrorises her enough as it is now, we're trying to teach her to pat and not pull fur, poke eyes and pull ears and side of her mouth

    Just trying to get organised for camping and just worked out there is going to 6 kids under 4...........going to be intersting I reckon! A's birthday is good friday so going to go into down day before and get a cake and take a couple of small pressies for her. We got her one of those tricycles that convert the bigger they get. When we get back and moved in will have a BBQ home for everyone here, hoping to convince DH's mum to come over from Vic (his two brothers & her cousins are coming camping so will be there for her actual bday)

    Well I better get off my butt, though can't be bother as weather here is cold, wet & rainy but it's got to stage I've to go get stuff off line and chuck in dryer.

    ps - Jleigh if you would like to add me on FB I'm Naomi Parry

    Wow Phoenix, the house thing is really happening! I can only imagine how real and exciting it must be. I agree that the sleep stuff will settle once A is in her own room.

    Marni - Boo for AF (still nothing here) but yay for Phoebe walking. B can't quite get up on the lounge by himself yet, so climbs on us to get up. The other day I found him standing on DH's suitcase so he could climb on the coffee table so he could climb on the phone book (which was on top of a box on the coffee table) to get to our mug of pens! They are just too clever for their own good sometimes! Do you find Phoebe is eating more because she's so active?

    Dummy - Marni, tell me how you do the dummy thing as we want to take it away too. DS only has it for sleeping in his cot, so it never comes out of his room, so I'm hoping it won't be too hard. I did start pulling it out once he went to sleep, but he went through a few days of unsettled-ness (I think we're teething, molars this time, yay, NOT!) so I backed off and let him keep it, lol! I didn't just want to go cold turkey on him either....

    Birthday - We got DS an awesome hand made wooden train (three carriages) and truck, both with logs yesterday - $60 the lot, bargain of the decade! DH wants to paint it so it might not be ready for his birthday, and he's probably still a little young for it too so we might save it for Christmas.

    FB - I only use it for my Mum's group (it's how we arrange meet ups) and for DH's family in Perth who've never met DS so hope everyone understands if I don't add you. I will post links to photos though if I add any more!

    Feeding - Who's still BFing? Any plans to stop? When? How? We're on 3 feeds/day and I was hoping after 12 months to at least cut out the day feed. DS still seems to really like it though, but he doesn't grizzle for it so I'm hoping it won't be too hard. I'd like to go to cow's milk rather than formula too, but will see how we go. Any ideas?

    Phoenix - The water thing hasn't worked too well here. But I will keep trying! 2-3 feeds at night is too much! Have fun camping - your brave though, I don't think I would attempt it with a baby

    JLeigh - I just take the dummy away cold turkey. I did with Tiana at 12 months and she was fine. My theory is that they are young enough not to remember it for long at that age. However I may have just been lucky!! We will see.

    Feeding - I am still b/f but am hoping to wean at 1. I would have a while ago but she wont take the bottle. I have started giving her cows milk with her lunch to get her used to it.

    Food - Some days she eats heaps but breakfast is pretty hit and miss. Sometimes sh eats a whole weetbix others she will only have a mouthful. Still loves fruit though, grapes are her favourite!

    Birthday - I have laybyed her a wooden dolls pram. She loves Tiana's and this one is lower to the ground so she can play with it easily.

    Well what a night last night - I think everytime I finally nodded off she woke up again!!! Think because I know the time frame to her being in her own room it's making me more wound up, where before I just went with the flow. I took her into bed with me around 5.30 and I got woken up with a kiss around 8 so hard to stay cranky lol

    BF - we are still on 4 feeds a day and nights could be between 1 & 4 but those are more for comfort, I'm almost tempted to try a dummy again but have my doubts she'll take one now. She has one when she wakes in the morning, before her morning & arvo naps and then before bed......if she misses one due to being out or skipping a nap she doesn't care. Not sure when I'll wean just going to go with it for now, I just find it so easy and it's a good excuse for 10mins cuddle time.

    Marni - this will be our third camping trip, the others have only been 3 nights, I put on a brave face the first time and was a bit worried how I would cope but was suprised how easy it was. The other kids kept her occupied and played with her and the other adults were more than happy to cuddle or keep an eye on her........she actually slept better - go figure

    Jleigh - totally understand on the FB thing but please keep the piccy's coming it's so lovely to see how the little ones are growing up.

    Went to the baby & children's expo that was here on the weekend, I really shouldn't be let into those places unsupervised lol made even worse that I had to go back yesterday and swap over some night nappies I bought for the bigger size....ended up with more nappies and a few other bits & pieces. Seeing some of the newborns there made me a little bit clucky but after last night if I ever get to sleep again, want to enjoy that for a while lol

    Ladies - can you post a link to some of your bubs albums? Would love to have a stickybeak!

    BFing - B has been really keen for his afternoon BF lately - grabs at me and grizzles til I say 'Would you like a drink of milk from Mummy?' then grins and races me to the lounge! Not sure how I'll go with the weaning, but I was hoping to start around 1y/o, not long now!

    Phoenix - Oooh, I am a shocker when it comes to buying for B. I am so good at keeping to a budget for me, but when it's for B... And nappies are a necessity so it's real easy to justify!

    Brissy ladies - Boz and I are in the city on Fri lunch/early arvo. Anyone available for a picnic at the Botanic gardens or coffee?

    Food - B loves grapes too! Other fruit he's hit and miss with - loves it one day, throws it the next! B'fast is B's smallest meal too but lately he's been eating HEAPS of lunch and dinner. Lunch yesterday was a bowl of cheesy tuna and vege pasta, 3 pieces of zucchini slice and yoghurt. I weighed him this morning and he's put on 300g in less than 3 weeks! Growth spurt!!

    Hi everyone else!

    OH MY - MIA I have been it seems...lol

    I have not been getting email notifications and I didnt even think about it coz most of us are on facebook......

    JLeigh - Elijah loves sultanas and grapes and sometimes bananas, but mostly throws fruit on the floor..lol, much like his daddy I would love to come to the city, but I will be busy shopping for camping stuff Want to add me on facebook? I am Cassandra Fels Nolan

    Easter is fast approaching and I am going with TinaR So excited about that one! Finally get to meet This will be our first camping trip with E, so we will see how it goes.

    E is 11 months old in just under 2 weeks. He is walking (taking a few steps) and getting more and more confident. Has heaps of teeth, haven't counted as he won't let me..lol He sleeps thru the night most nights, unless sick or teething (which he does every few nights lately) and he usually goes off to bed without a fuss.

    I am still trying to convince DH to try again for a girl - but so far no luck....but we will see...crying usually gets me far (kidding) But time will tell.

    Ok well its time for E's nap so I will be back a bit later on ladies
