    Hi everyone

    Beata - love the new name! Yes, we have entered Fraser in the Bonds Baby Search competition. It's probably the only time I will do it. We didn't go to much effort - just dug out a pic with him wearing Bonds. It's funny the amount of people who have said things against it - it's just a bit of fun to me! Haven't seen Cam's pic but will go have a looky see. I'll be voting for all the bubs I know in there. We haven't started swimming - might wait until next term now, but def wanna get him enrolled.

    Meercat - your party plans sound great! How cute about calling Tiah "Honky Duck" - so sweet! How's the sleeping going? Better I hope!

    Krisvee - yay for Jayden walking! Hope that temper settles down though!



    Hi to everyone else!

    Well, Fraser finally started crawling up on all fours (rather than the seal thingy) on the weekend. So pleased. It didn't really bother me that he was getting around in his own way, but it seemed to bother others, who felt compelled to take pity on him (heavens knows why). I googled types of crawling (after mentioning it to you, Beata, just to confirm) and it is def a type of crawling -as long as they are moving forwards on their tummy, which he had been doing since November. So is rolling - it basically covers any movement to get where they want to go. He's climbing on everything now and will walk along with his trike, pushing it.

    We've got DH's mum coming to stay for a month in a few weeks time. She's got a new boyfriend and asked to bring him. How would you guys feel about that? My initial reaction was no way, as I he could be anyone, but I feel bad, cos she let DH bring me over here when she lived here, without even meeting me. It feels kinda different when it's a man, plus I am a bit worried about a complete stranger being in the house with Fraser (not that I would ever leave them alone - I haven't even left him alone with DH's mum). A difficult one!

    Hope you're all having a good week and had a great Valentines Day if you're that way inclined (I'm not). xxx

    Hi everyone,

    Mia - Yay for Fraser crawling! I know what you mean about the types of crawling. Angus did the commando crawl for about 6 weeks before he crawled on all fours. Some people (ie. my step mother and sister's partner) kept saying "oh he's just about to crawl any day soon" He was still getting around the house.

    Re: first birthdays - I can't wait to start shopping. I really should get some invitations soon to send out, but I was thinking of making my own in microsoft pulisher. I say that, but it would probably be much quicker just to buy them and who is going to keep them anyway??

    OMG, I have SO many toys. The house is being over run with them!! Definately don't want any more toys for his birthday. By the way, Angus is driving me crazy!! He pulls everything down and gets into all the cupboards.. And some days he is constantly yelling at me! He loves going in the trolley when we go shopping, but lately he tries to stand up in the seat, so I have to put him in the main part of the trolley. He just stands up holding on to either side while I push him along like on the movie Titanic He's really Full On - definately takes after his father!

    Hi Girls. Thanks for the nice comments. Miss B, am organising a joint christening/1st birthday. Just got the invites in the mail. I did them on vista print, pretty reasonable and they look great. Theme is white and silver, have a white dress, silver ballet slippers and for the party white and silver fairy wings. (for matilda!) Could keep on spending but better stop!!!

    Any suggestions for 1st birthday presents?

    Mia - can understanad where you are coming from, I would be the same.

    Nat, yeah it has been hot, we got up to 47 degrees the other day!! Heat and pregnancy don't mix. I have the same with Matilda being a bit of a bully. I went away with my husband's sister and her boy who is 18 months. Matilda was the boss of him - it was actually pretty funny. I think he is a bit of a sook! (I can say that it is my husband's nephew!)

    Rooey, yeah it is not nice the whole PND - was just not myself, am usually a confident and in control and don't get too stressed and was the totally opposite to that.

    Kris - congrats on Jayden walking. Matilda is going everywhere now too.

    Meercat, how funny about you being in control of the party. I am the same, I don't think my DH even knows when the party is!

    Hope everyone else is well.

    Is anyone else pregnant yet??????

    Hi!

    Becc - Congratulations on expecting bubba 2!! How exciting! Def no more babies for me...lol...

    Nat - Jayden's into everything as well...lol at him sitting in the bottom of the trolley...don't the trolley's have straps?/

    Miamunchkin - Yeah on Fraser crawling! Hmmm...I guess it's hard to say no the your MIL's boyfriend...I'm sure it will be ok!

    Hi to everyone else!

    Jayden's 2nd tooth is nearly poking through...I'm still having so much trouble getting him to sleep...I just let him cry for a little bit because I was getting frustrated and he gets so upset...We're still cuddling him to sleep most of the time which is just getting too hard!! The other boys you would put in the cot and they would just put themselves to sleep from around 6 months old...anyway...

    For bfing mums - how many feeds are you still giving a day? I'm bfing 3 x a day at the moment but think I'll wean down to 2 very soon..I want to have him fully weaned by 12 months so I better get a wriggle on I think!!

    Chat soon!

    hi everyone,

    becc u must be getting excited that your next little one will be here soon! congratulations!

    kris - yeah we are still cuddling and rocking Hamish to sleep here. i got him a leap frog toy called scout which plays lullabys but he is still a bit young to take that to bed with him. we tried but he just got so upset that it was easier to continue to rock him sleep. i think once he is up and walking (probably around 18 months old) we might try again.

    beata - Hamish's party was great. i really need to put up those pics on fb. he ended up being passed around heaps but he didnt mind it. we gave him 2 slices of his cake and he loved it. i ended up just giving him a bath afterwards rather then try and wipe him clean. so much easier that way. was very spoilt. got 2/3 of toys and 1/3 of size one clothing. got some size 2 clothing too. so when he goes up to ones i wont need to buy much stuff now

    afm, well i still cant believe Hamish is one. tomorrow it marks 1 year exactly since he got transferred to the special care nursery closer to home, then next tuesday he will have been home for a year! he has a cold at the moment. took him to the docs yesterday as i thought he might have had an ear infection coz he was tugging at his left ear a lot. thankfully he doesnt! he has just started standing on his own. thats pretty exciting. i think he will be walking by his corrected birthday tho which is 20th march. i really hope so.

    not having anymore babies anytime soon! might start thinking about it in 3 years! slowly working thru my last pregnancy and birth. i have a lot of stuff to sort thru as far as that is all concerned.

    hi to everyone else xx

    Hi lovely mummies!

    Teresa, so happy that Hamish's party went well! I bet he's really enjoyed all the attention and pressies! I like getting slightly bigger clothes as gifts for Cam as he grows out of them so quickly. ATM he is wearing half size 0 and half size 1.

    Krisvee, yay for Jayden's second tooth! I think Cam is getting one soon, but not sure.....still pretty toothless here

    Bec, look at your ticker flying along! So happy for you! I wish I was in your shoes One of my very close GF just told me she's 8 weeks along (I've been waiting for this baby for YEARS) and I am beside myself with excitement. They weren't really trying, they got married in August last year (they've bee together for 15 years or something) and around xmas they've decided not to be so careful but not try at the same time, and BINGO! She's only 2 years younger than me and pretty much thought she's missed the boat and was happy to remain childless, so she's in shock to say the least but also very excited. On another note, your Christening/1st birthday party combination sounds great! I bet Matilda will look adorable! We still haven't got our acts together about the Christening, hmmmmmm, better get a move on I think. He ain't a baby anymore..lol. As for 1st birthday ideas???? Not too sure at this stage...Saw a stunning rocking snail in Early Learning shop (not sure what the shop is called exactly) and it converts into a snail that can be pulled along too as it's got wheels as well. It's pretty expensive but it's the only thing I have on my list ATM.

    Nat, Cam yells all the time now too. And he watches for my reaction which is pretty funny. I just yell back at him, ha ha. I have a place full of toys here as well, the other day I tripped on one while carrying Cam and slammed into a wall (luckily I got Cam out of the way )

    Mia, thanks hun! I thought my old user name was a bit boring....why were people funny about you entering Fraser in the baby bonds comp????? I thought it was a great idea! I'd love to see him in a bonds catalouge! He only wears bonds and little bit of pumpkin patch (much prefers bonds though). I'm also gonna vote for all the babies I know! And I can't wait to get Cam into his swimming too!

    Hi to everyone else!

    PS I'll be stalking here for 1st birthday present ideas too

    The thread is not dead, ladies. I did not get any notifications since my last post.

    Thanks for your words of wisdom. DH's ma arrives on Monday by herself. The BF asked her to marry him and she told him that it was too soon, hence a split.

    Fraser is 1 on Wednesday - where did that year go? Having a small family lunch on Sat and ordered a beautiful cake. We went to get his 1 year needles this arvo and he didn't flinch!

    Hi everyone,

    I haven't been receiving notifications either and just happend to look on here.

    Bec - I drank RLT from 30 weeks, but unfortunately it didn't do anything for me! I've heard that the tablets are better, but I'm not really sure.

    We're thinking about having another one soon, but no sooner have I convinced myself (and DH) that I chicken out. DS is SO active and strong, I really don't know how I would manage. But if we started soon, they would be around 2 years apart and he would at least be walking everywhere and feeding himself by then. Changing his nappy and dressing him is such a struggle at the moment because, like the Gymbaroo teacher says, he's like an octopus! My friend is the same - she's taking Chlomid and she starts each month, but then gets her DH to use a condom when it comes to DTD...

    MiaMunchkin - So you ordered your cake too? I was so stressing about the cake (especially because he is having 2 parties) and DH asked why I didn't just order one. I was like "I can't do that - I have to make it". He asked where it said that in the Mummy rule book and I think I will just order one (or two - for his Brisbane party too)

    It's funny how we feel obliged to doing things. Up until a week ago I was still breastfeeding because I felt I had too. DS bites sometimes, squirms around and tried to stand up, but I still persisted. It wasn't until we went to see our new fertility specialist and she told me I would have to have stopped feeding before we can start IVF treatment. I stopped that day even though we're not starting for at least another month. It was like I was given 'permission'!!

    Anyway, I hope everyone else is going really well. I've been a bit slack in organising this party, so I better get cracking!!

    Hey ladies

    I'm not getting notifications either - grr!

    Nat - awesome you are thinking about having number 2. I know what you mean about chickening out - I'm the same! Think we are going to wait about a year, once the terrible 2's are done! Yip - I bought a cake. I'm not much of a baker or cook, so I would have stressed about doing it too much! How did you go with stopping BF? Hopefully, no pain!

    Bec - wow - 30 weeks! I think you can start the RLT about 33 weeks from memory. Thanks for Fraser's birthday wishes!

    Rooey - how is Indy doing now? Better, I hope!

    Beata - how did Cam go with his needles? Well, I hope!

    As for us, not much changed since I last wrote. We had "the birthday", which was great fun. The party was great too - everyone had a ball and Fraser loved his Iggle Piggle chocolate cake. There was chocolate everywhere.

    DH's mum is here at the moment. Not helping out much so feels like I have 2 toddlers to look after!!

    Kristie, can you convince my DF about another one? lol. Cam had his check up yesterday and he's 9.8 kg and 74 cm. I always call him my chubba but the MCHN said he dropped off in weight slightly (helloooooooo!) b/c I'm giving him too much milk and not enough solids. Pft!
