    Hi everyone. I haven't been receiving emails about this thread and didn't realise it was still active.

    Yay, the babies are getting so big and I am already thinking about Angus' birthday. We are flying up to Brisbane to have a party with family and will then have another one in the park down here with his playgroup friends. Angus is so quick at crawling around the house and loves rearranging the drawers in the kitchen and the bottom row of the bookshelf. We can't leave anything on the coffee table or side tables in the loungeroom either cause he pulls himself along and will find a way to it. He is very determined. He just learned to clap the other day and claps himself all the time - especially when he is getting told "no"

    Mia - that's terrible what happend! How scarey and I can't believe none of the other ladies were watching!!

    Rooey - Angus has 6 teeth now, but used to bite me on the nipple when he was first getting his top teeth and I almost gave up bf! OMG it is the worst pain and give me hot flushes just thinking about it. I never really made a big deal about it though and would sometimes just stop feeding him.

    Anyway - I've got to go now and put Angus down, but I will try and do more personals later or maybe just catch up as I go.



    RE: Sleeping - Angus was sleeping 7 - 7 and then stopped. I read somewhere about giving them protein at dinner and tried that. I think it really works, or maybe it was just a coincidence?

    I don't even want to imagine the pain of a nipple bite with top and bottom teeth, ouch!

    Hi lovely mummies,

    Mia, what a scare hun!! Glad he is OK though. Can't believe the other mums didn't even notice. That's just terrible and so scary!

    No biting here. Simple reason??????? NO TEETH. Whatsoever. Only little slits in the bottom gums where they will grow, one day.......and little bumps on top. But no teeth.

    And I don't have to worry about having to put everything away, cos HE IS NOT CRAWLING YET!!!!!! Just rolling away, happily enough. Sitting up for long periods, yay. But not mobile. Sigh. I know I will whinge once he takes off, but why is it so slow with him? Teeth, crawling, pulling himself up. He's got such strong arms and legs, I just don't know why. Too much time in the jumperoo????? I've got him enrolled in pre crawler class at gymbaroo again. He'll be there with little babies

    Over and out, a bit depressed.

    Beata - don't worry about it too much. All the babies in our playgroup started crawling at the same time, but Angus was the youngest at 7 months and the eldest was 10 months. Also, I was at a coffee shop the other day and the woman next to us had a baby around the same age. We started talking and it turned out her baby was a day older! She then asked if Angus had any teeh and I told her he had six, but apparently her baby had just got her first tooth! Another friend's baby only has 2 teeth and she is 13 months old, so all different I guess.

    Wow - just thinking how nice it is that the thread is picking up again. I really missed reading about everyone!

    Aww, Beata, hun, don't stress! They all develop at their own pace. I know it's frustrating - Fraser still isn't crawling properly - too busy still doing his impersonation of a seal! He gets where he wants to go and that's all he's interested in, which I'm sure is the same with Cam. If he can roll to get to the things he wants then he won't have the desire to crawl. A friend told me that as long as they are getting around and getting to where they want to go (by rolling, bum shuffling, frog/seal impersonations) then it is still classed as crawling. My doc also told me that the later they get their teeth, the better - no idea why (someone said it's a sign of intellect)! Please don't get yourself down about it - he and you are doing great by the sounds of things! One thing we were told (by Gymbaroo teacher) was to get rid of the Jumperoo as it was affecting the formation and muscles in Fraser's feet and legs. Even now, when he bears weight, he curls his toes underneath and it was the Jumperoo that started it.

    Rooey - yay for the Kitchenaid! I always salivate at the yummy pics you post on FB- guess we'll be seeing some more?

    Nat - we have the same problem with the coffee tables. DH insists on putting his coffee on a table that Fraser crawls under and it scares the bejesus out of me! I've heard that about the protein too. It certainly seems to do the trick.

    Teresa - glad Hamish didn't get sick with these teeth coming through. F was the same - got all choked up and nasally when the first three came through, but seems to be okay with these two, thank goodness!

    Yeah, thanks ladies. The paddling pool incident gave me a real fright. I guess the ladies didn't notice as they were part of one of my mothers group and they were all sitting chatting, deep in conversations, plus I know how quick Fraser can get in and out of places. Just makes you so cautious and feel very very guilty. We had been letting him sit on the side of the pool and throw himself in, but after reading about dry drowning, I'm going to stop that for my own peace of mind. We really don't want him to be afraid of the water especially as DH and I are not very good swimmers, so we're relying on him to be a true little Aussie and love the water. But there is plenty of time for that and maybe we'll wait until he's a bit older and can tell us if he's feeling unwell.

    Hi to everyone else!

    We must have all hit a busy patch!

    The new Kitchenaid = awesome! I'm in love, here comes more cooking!

    Don't worry about Cam Beata, they all develop at their own pace. There were babies in my mother's group younger than Indy who were more advanced than him. As long as he's healthy

    Off to my cousin's wedding this weekend, hoping I don't look like a big fat frankfurt in my pretty red dress

    Hi Everyone,

    OMG - I'm so tired! I gave up study this year (graduating with a grad. diploma rather than my Masters). I thought that I would much rather focus on Angus and we are also planning to try for #2 some time soon. Anyway, we've been doing so much. We have gymbaroo, swimming lessons, 2 different playgroups that meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday + other things. I'm loving it because it is great to get out of the house and do things, but it's also a bit exhausting.

    Angus is driving me a bit crazy at home because he is into EVERYTHING, but it's also cute because while I am cooking dinner he 'sorts out' the tupperware container drawers for me. Last night we all had dinner together at the table and Angus loved it. He clapped every time either DH or I looked at him. He's learned a new trick of sticking his finger up his nose - not a good look!

    We have a birthday party for 3 of the babies at playgroup tommorow. I can't believe they are all almost 1!! The time has gone so quickly... Is anyone else thinking about #2? It's pretty scary when I think about it, but I don't want too much of an age gap. I think around 2 years would be good.

    Has anyone gone back to work? I know some people have, but I can't remember who (apart from Teresa). How are you finding that? One of my good friends had to make a decision today if she was going to go back or not (and when). She's decided to go back in June, so we are going to go and look around at child care centres next week. If I can find a spot for Angus, I might go and do some relief teaching for a while...

    Anyway, hope everyone is going really well.

    Hi ladies!

    Ha ha Mia, you didn't kill the thread, nice try though DF's come back from China on Monday so have been busy doing things with wee man and trying to catch up with everyone before he flies out again on Tuesday
    I had to laugh when I pictured your little seal getting around! That's just gorgeous hun. Cam is rolling furiously ATM, and taking some pretty quick turns on the mat when something catches his attention! We have gymbaroo classes starting next Thursday, can't wait! Oh speaking of the jumperoo, Cam doesn't like it as much these days. He's much happier on the floor which is great. About time he ditched it! Thanks for your words of support and wisdom hun

    Nat, I think about number 2 ALL THE TIME. I so want to try now, but with DF being in China and the thought of him looking for a job when he gets back and trying to find a bigger house, something tells me we'll have to wait longer than June/July. Bugger!
    Not planning going back to work anytime soon, primarely because we will be trying for no 2. sometime this year so no point of me going back. Gosh, you do sound busy lady! I guess I wish I was busier like that too, sometimes Cam and I get a bit bored but I'm too lazy to look for a playgroup, thank God we have gymbaroo

    HC, thanks hun! And yay for the kitchenaid! I'd just get it to look purdy, I don't actually cook or bake.......poor DF!

    Well, a big hello to everyone out there, will try and catch up in here next week when we are home alone.....again.....

    hi everyone

    i am enjoying being back at work. i am getting the adult conversation and the brain stimulation that i wasnt getting at home. i love Hamish and dont regret going back to work at all. i really do love my job i think! i miss Hamish tho when i am away from him but its good to get a few hours to myself even if i have to go to work to do it lol

    as for number 2 well thats quite a long time off if ever at all. DH and i are really happy with Hamish at the moment and i am still working thru everything that happened with my pregnancy and the birth. still scared to get pregnant again and having all those issues again.

    afm, well Hamish is 1 next wednesday! that year has gone so quickly i cant believe it! he is now standing on his own for a few seconds so i think he will be walking by his corrected birthday (march 20) heres hoping anyway! we are having a little party with party food at our house on the 12th and is mostly family and a few friends. really annoyed tho as i put an rsvp on the invitations so i could organise catering and only 1/4 of the ppl i sent the invitations to have replied. apparantly my brother and his gf have some other kiddies birthday to go to that day so that takes preference over their own nephew. i am so angry about that one but not really surprised at all. i really feel like saying something to him.

    anyway better go. big hugs to you all and cuddles to the little ones!

    Teresa - that's great that you're enjoying your work. One of the Mum's in my playgroup went back to work in December. Apparently her son just crawled over to the toys and when she said bye to him, he just waved at her. He actually cried when she came to pick him up! I think it's great for their socialisation skills. That's why I try to take Angus to playgroup all the time. I understand about you being worried about getting pregnant again. I am a bit scared myself and had a really easy pregnancy and relatively average birth (when he finally came out!).

    Beata - that would be difficult with your DH being in China. I remember when DH came back on leave from Afghanistan when I was pregnant (for 10 days). It was really disruptive and went so quickly, then I missed him so much more!! I agree that it would be good to wait to be in a better position though before TTC again. We are in a pretty good position at the moment and DH is posted to his current position for about another 4 years, so we have some stability. Also, we're going down the ivf path, which took about 6 months last time (actually, DH wasn't in the country when I got pregnant!). You should join a playgroup though through Playgroups Australia. It's really good to chat to other Mum's while the babies play together.

    Also, I think we have a little bully on our hands. Yesterday we had Playgroup at our house and one of the boys kept headbutting Angus. After a while he went to bite him! It wasn't just a little bite - he had a really Angry face when he did it. He then tried to do it to another boy and grabbed his face! The other little boy was playing with Angus' toys and he kept taking him off him, even though they were toys that he never plays with himself. When we were at a Defence Playgroup the other day, he crawled up to the table, pulled himself up, shuffled along and grabbed some food off a 3 year old! Cheeky boy - he's a little bit too confident sometimes I think

    Hi girls, sorry havent' ducked in for a while, haven't been quite myself. Hope everyone is doing OK.

    Well Matilda is almost walking took 5 steps today, am praying that it continues and she is walking soon. as all I can think about is how am I going to go to the supermarket when the new one arrives.

    As for number 2, good luck girls, as you may remember I got a shock and found out I was pregnant pretty quickly after I had her. Am now 25 weeks and over the heat. Anyway, I didn't get post natal depression after I had her but got it or a type which was perinatal depression when I found out I was pregnant - apparently a mixture of post and pregnancy hormones. Was not nice, did anyone else get post natal of any type. Am just coming back to normal now. Definatelly was not myself.

    I can't believe everyone's bub's are almost 1. How time flys. Happy Birthday to Hamish for next wednesday Teresa

    Hope everyone else is goiing well. Don't worry about time frames I think every baby is different.

    Hi ladies,

    Teresa, OMG Hamish is almost 1!!! Wow, look at your little guy all grown up and all! Glad you're enjoying the adult conversations at work!

    Nat, I had a laugh when you described the 'confrontation' between Angus and the other toddler. I often wonder how Cam will go sharing with others, he really doesn't mix with any other toddlers. I'm gonna watch him at gymbaroo.....he seems to like babies and is usually curious when he sees one!

    Bec, lovely to hear from you! I often wonder how you're travelling. I'm sorry to hear about the perinatal depression, didn't know there was such a thing . I'm glad things are returning back to normal for you, big hugs hun!

    OK question ladies, how are you all planning your bubbas 1st birthday? Would love to hear some ideas

    31becc -good to hear that you are going well now. Yes I remember how hot I was this time last year in QLD. Although it seems to be REALLY hot everywhere at the moment. Yay for Matilda having 5 steps! You'll have to get one of those twin strollers though for when she gets tired. I really want one of them (the umbrella ones) for when I go shopping with my friend who has a bub the same age. But DH won't let me because he thinks I will do more shopping!

    Beata - we are having 2 birthday parties for Angus. One in Brisbane with all of my family and any of DH's that come down from Nth Qld and then another one down here with all of Angus' brother's and sisters (from DH's previous marriage) and all his playgroup friends. The one in Brisbane with family will probably be done at my Mum's house with finger food and a special cake for him. Then the one down here will either be at the local park or our house depending on the weather. Again, I might do some really simple finger food and have cupcakes. I wanted to have a Thomas the Tank Engine theme (because there is a big 1 on Thomas) but I might end up just doing blue things.

    Hi!!!!!

    Long time no post!!! Feel like life has finally settled down enough that I may get a chance to chat! Hope you're all well!!

    Jayden is going really well - he's already walking the little cheeky and is very gorgeous but omg he's been a difficult bubba...he has such a temper and after a small frame of sleeping a lot better he seems to be waking a whole lot more again at the moment!!!

    Anyway, look forward to catching up with you all!

    Hi everyone!

    I am planning a "Rubber Ducky" themed party for Tiah She used to make this weird noise when she was nearly asleep, a kind of honk... and we called her "the Honky Duck" so it fits in well haha

    I went on Etsy and went a little crazy, they have AWESOME party decorations and outfits for 1st Birthdays. Her dad wanted a simple party, but I told him birthday parties are MY domain.

    Right now I am reading the No Cry Sleep Solution as well. Tiah is waking every hour at night and acts like her cot has electric eels in it, and I am only barely coping. First night and I tried some of the ideas and she is in her cot, she has woken twice since 7.30am, but is going straight back to sleep so I am hoping this works!

    Hi ladies,

    Thanks for sharing your ideas for your bub's 1st birthday! Still don't know what we're doing, I have enlisted the help of a good friend who's got two kids (7 & 5) so she's got plenty of parties under her belt. The only thing is that she does everything BIG and I'm a bit scared......

    Hey, has anyone entered their bub in the Baby Bonds search? I have seen Tiah there and Fraser I think, anyone else???? I've entered Cam! All the bubs there are so cute, I couldn't resist myself

    Hey Krisvee! So good to hear from you hun! I've noticed that if Cam doesn't get his way he throws himself back and chucks a tanty. OMG!

    Meercat, your party idea sounds great! Sorry Tiah is waking so often still, hopefully the book will be useful. Sounds like it is!

    Mia, I love Fraser's pic too! He's so adorable. How is Fraser's swimming going? Both DF and I are not great swimmers either, so I'd like Cam to be very confident and love water. Certainly not scared of it like mum!

    Teresa, how did Hamish's birthday go?

    Hi to everyone else!
