    Hi Girls, I wasn't getting reminders so sorry. Heaps of posts to catch up on.

    Sounds like a lot of sick bubbas. Ear infections are the worst, Matilda has had two and she just screams constantly!

    Don't worry about the kids not walking yet. One of my friends, all of her three kids didn't start until after 19 months. Nothing wrong with them, they just start when they are ready. In saying that I am glad Matilda is walking just because I can't carry two kids!



    Meercat - I feel for you about the sleeping issue. I am up twice a night again and it has rocked me getting used to that. So don't know how you have done it. Good luck at the chiro.

    Beata, good luck with the TTC. I have a few friends that are preggies now, that were preggies before with me.

    Kristie, I an see your point with the BF in the morning still. Too cold to get up!!

    Annabelle is going well. She is a month old in 2 days - already. It is funny, if I am sitting out with the monitor and Annabelle is crying and Matilda hears here, she walks up to me and goes Shhhh, shhhh. It is hilarious.

    wow so much to catch up on!

    bec - it sounds like you have a gorgeous family there! so cute what matilda does

    kristie - much too cold to get out of bed in the morning! best to have extra cuddles with your boys

    beata - i was in pumpkin patch a few weeks ago before Hamish started walking and the lady in there said that her two boys didnt start walking until they were 18 months old! Cam will surprise u one day and just take off when you are least expecting it!

    jess - i hope the chiro works for you with tiah!

    afm, well now that Hamish can walk he just climbs up on everything. now he can get up on the kitchen chairs so if i am sitting down on one and get up to go do whatever, he runs straight to it and climbs up then starts playing with the laptop. going to buy him a kids laptop tomorrow and see if that diverts his attention a bit! he now also doesnt ever want to go in his pram anymore. i bought one of those harnesses and its been great. allows him to walk everywhere now. tho DH is away at the moment and says that when he gets back we are going out to buy a stroller so he will go in that. i am like he wont get in the pram what makes u think he will get into the stroller

    Hamish has cut his two canines now. looks like the bottom two will pop thru soon then that leaves the 2 year old molars. i hope they are fuss free too when they come thru! i am also not having to rock Hamish to sleep much now. he is too busy laughing at me so i just put him in his cot, he winges for around 30 secs then goes quiet. also on one nap a day now so i am now getting up at 630am just to shower before he wakes up. i get so tired some days. oh well i dont mind.

    hi to everyone else

    Well we had Tiah's appointment today. It was so hard. She was not happy about laying on her tummy on the bed and screamed and cried for mama the entire time. I am ashamed to say I cried and begged the lady to stop... Instead of being strong for Tiah lucky DP came along, he held Tiah and snapped me out of it each time I started crying and made me talk to her to calm her down.

    The lady tells us that she had three trapped nerves, that together would affect her sleep, cause her to wake screaming and always be pretty sweaty. All these things apply to her! She also said Tiah would probably do a big poo when we got him and as soon as we walked in the door she retreated to her corner and proceeded to do her poo face! Lol

    She is sleeping now, so here's hoping I didn't put her through that for nothing and she gets a decent block of sleep tonight (even three hours would be amazing!)

    Tiah hates her pram as well now, and the stroller, and the trolley. I put her heaviest shoes on (light up sketchers.. So cute) so she can't run away! Haha

    Hi girls, I haven't been on here in ages! How is everyone?

    We're trying to get Dude to sleep on his own mattress next to our bed instead of in with us, any tips?!

    Hope you're all well!

    I lay with Tiah until she is asleep, then sneak out (she is on a mattress but in her own room)

    We also took her shopping for her sheets and blanket and made a big deal about her new bed and that is where she goes "Nuna byes". Now when I ask her if it is time nuna byes she trots off to her room and climbs into bed!

    (she still is not the best sleeper... But 100% now she has her own sleeping space. When I bring her into bed with me she wakes so much more)

    Hey girls

    How is everyone? Well, I hope!

    Just thought I would drop by and say hi and see how everyone is going. Can't believe how much our "little ones" are becoming their own little people and personalities!

    Hope everyone else is well and hope to hear back soon!

    Hi everyone

    I hope everyone is going really well. We were going to do another round of IVF in May, but as soon as my AF arrived I chickened out and we decided to go on an overseas trip instead. My Mum and SF are in Europe at the moment and have a car and caravan, so we booked our tickets to Warsaw and our from Paris four weeks later. We camped along the way in between and all had a great time. Angus loved being outdoors and even enjoyed sleeping in his KinderKot bed. We went to 8 countries - so Angus is a very well travelled little boy as well as a very cultured one - he's been to the Science and Technology museum in Germany, the Lourve in Paris and the Palais of Versailles, among lots of others. I know he won't remember any of it, but at least we have lots of photos, including one of him next to the original Mona Lisa picture.

    He did really well while we were over there, I think mainly because of all the stimulation. On our first night in Paris, he stayed up until 1 in the morning and as DH was pushing him around in the pram he was pointing, saying "ohhh" and rocking in his pram, saying "go, go" whenever DH stopped. He's a real adrenaline junkie!! But he's had a bit of trouble adjusting being back at home and I think he has his day/night mixed up. It probably doesn't help that I haven't been doing much with him during the day (outside) because I am so tired myself and DH has gone away for work this week. Oh well, it's only been 2 days so it should get better soon.

    Miamunchkin - yes, I love how their personalities are really coming out. Angus is a real Aries - loves being the centre of attention, curious about the world and a bit of a daredevil. He is also such a larikin and loves to crack up and himself. This morning I bought him into bed with me and he has this new trick of pulling his all in one suit open and tries to undress himself. I was laughing at him and he started laughing to and jumping up and down, but then he fell back and hit his head on the wall - he just got back up and started laughing again. He's always got bruised on his face somewhere - people must think I am such a bad mother, but he is just a real boof head!

    Rooey - I hope you've worked out your sleep arrangements. We've never had Angus in bed with us to sleep (I was too scared to sleep myself whenever he was in our bed). However, he is in his portacot in our room at the moment because a few days before we went overseas his monitor stopped working and I need to get a new one. His room is downstairs and we can't hear him otherwise.

    Teresa - Angus hates being strapped into anything, weather it be the stroller, trolley, carseat or highchair. He's not too bad in the stroller though, as long as we are going somewhere and there are interesting things to look at. When we were overseas he learnt how to escape out of that though, but squeezing his arms under the straps and pushing himself up with the footrest. We were going to get a harness, but I can just imagine him constantly throwing himself on the ground and refusing to move (which is what he does now when I try to lead him anywhere). Angus does the climbing thing too and we used to have a bookshelf in the dining room until one day I came out of the bathroom and found him on the floor surrounded by books after he pulled down one of the shelves.

    31bec - That is so cute that she says "shh". You must be really exhausted with having another little one, but is Matilda pretty relaxed? I sometimes think it's like having 3 kids with Angus, he is so full on at times - not clingy or naughty, just needing 120% attention and stimulation. We're thinking of starting him in childcare soon for at least one day, even if I don't go back to work before #2. He would really benefit from the socialisation and stimulating environment. Plus, he just wears me out so much sometimes!

    Meercat - I hope everything is better with Tiah now.. It must have been really had for you too going though all that

    Miss B - Angus doesn't really say any words either. He just says the same as Cam, and points at everything saying "ohhh" and "ahhh", as well as doing some babble. I think generally girls are faster to learn speech??? I'm not really looking forward to Angus learning to talk actually, because I know he won't stop and I'm a bit auditory sensitive (with too much noise, I get really stressed).

    Oh well, I just noticed that I've written a bit of a novel!!

    Nat82 - Sounds like Angus is a very privileged little man. Good on you for doing the trip - sounds as if you have had a fantastic time. Are you planning on doing IVF soon?

    I laugh at you talking about Angus throwing himself down - Fraser has really only started walking this week (fully) and I can't wait to see the tantrums, etc, - they have been such a long time in coming. I really feel as I have missed out with Fraser taking so long to walk and was genuinely thinking he had major problems due to his sacral dimple, but we got there in the end, so looking forward to the "walking" tantrums, if you know what I mean!

    We're getting a few more words now - more related to food! We get "more" when the food has run out. We also get a variation on "very clever" when all food has been eaten!

    Hi all!

    Good to hear from your ladies! And good to know our little munchkins are growing up......ahhhhh, the babies are well and truly gone! lol

    Mia, yay for Fraser walking! Then he starts running haha! My wee lad is still not interested in walking yet......he turned 17 months 2 days ago. He walks along furniture quite well, but doesn't really stand up on his own yet or walk by himself. He's just started to let go of one piece of furniture (provided it's close enough) and lathes on to something else. We went to the paed 5 weeks ago as I was concerned with his arm flapping and leg kicking (while in the high chair, or sitting down on the floor or couch UNLESS he's distracted with food or an object). The paed said he's just expressing emotions with his arms/legs, but deep down I just don't buy it (I wish I did!). I've also called the MCHN and told her of my concerns and she told me that it all sounds normal but I'm still worried. She said she'll have a look at him at his 18 month check up but I'm thinking of having him assessed anyway. The paed also said that he should be walking within 6 to 8 weeks (it's been 5 weeks.....hmmmmm) so we'll see. He said to keep an eye on him and if I'm still worried to come back in 6 months.

    Nat, wow, Angus is very well travelled isn't he? I'm glad you've all had a good time. So far Cam's been to China and Hamilton Island

    Thanks Teresa and Bec, I guess I'm not that worried about Cam not walking yet, it's just that he's been so late with everything I get myself all worried and worked up. How are your lovely kidlets?

    How is everyone else? I'm glad this tread came alive again!

    AFM, we are going to QLD in 4 weeks for 8 days, it should be nice. We're going with a friend couple of ours and their kids. We are also planning a cycle in Nov. this year so I'm trying to mentally prepare myself. DF is still not working so it's nice to have him home, but he will look for work soon. We are also looking to buy a house so have been crazy busy doing that!

    Hope to catch up with everyone soon!

    hi ladies

    nat - i ended up getting a new stroller for Hamish and he seems to like it. i also have a harness which we put on him sometimes. he loves walking around. we have had a few tantrums with him in it but we just pick him up or walk off and that gets his attention!

    beata - Hamish really doesnt talk either. he said dog yesterday but mostly its just baby babble with some words thrown in every now and then like no and dont i honestly think he is far too busy trying to work out in his brain how things work and studying them then talking!

    hope everyone else is good. nothing much new here other then we are being posted at the end of the year and are off to wagga in NSW. a bit excited about that!

    Hey ladies!

    How is everyone going?

    Tiah is still like the energizer bunny... She is down to a one hour nap in the middle of the day and then up all night still. I have come to the conclusion she will never need sleep so we are saying stuff it and ttc #2. We were going to wait until she was three... But if the next one is the same and doesn't need sleep I might as well be up with both of them!

    We are right in the thick of toddler tantrums as well now... Had my first experience of her laying on the floor of target screaming. Why? Because I wanted to look at the toys and she wanted to look at nail polish lol

    hey everyone

    no more babies for us (at least not in the foreseeable future). we are moving to wagga wagga in january so have been busy planning for that!

    Hamish is doing well. speaking more and more. sometimes he says clear words and other times he doesnt. he knows what we are saying to him and understands us but just doesnt talk back most times. i am not too worried. what is everyone else's little ones doing?

    Hi ladies,

    I'm glad to see everyone and their LOs are doing well. It's funny how a dormant thread just comes to life suddenly! lol. We (well I actually) have been going through a bit with Cam, as he is still quite delayed with most things and that is really starting to worry me now. He has just started to walk unaided a week ago. He is still only saying mum and dada and lots of words we don't understand, so lots of sounds but not real words. I had an 18 month check up and asked the nurse to do an assessment on him as I suspect that something else is going on. She did the test and was concerned, so we got referred to a developmental pediatrician (we have to wait till March 2012!) . He doesn't point and sometimes it's like talking to a brick wall, not much response from him, but other days he's quite responsive. I know he can understand a lot but can't communicate yet. He waves bye bye but that's pretty much it. My DF doesn't seem to be worried but I am losing the plot slowly. My gut feeling is that something is not quite right. I take him to a gymbaroo type class called kidz can, and he doesn't seem to be as responsive as the other kids. I had that problem at gymbaroo, when during story time and when they called out his name he hardly ever responded. This class is a bit longer and they have a lot more 'free' play so he enjoys it more. We ended up taking him to his normal pediatrician and he said that he's too young to assess now, and referred us to an assessment person in February. He doesn't seem to think there's anything big to worry about, but has agreed that he sometimes seems to disassociate a bit from things. Cam was actually a lot more responsive during that consultation than with the MCHN!
    Anyway, enough from me, I think I have lost 10 years off my life firstly googling things and secondly worrying about what may come.

    Big hugs to all.

    PS On the TTC thing, I was excited to do another cycle this month but have decided to put it off for a while as I'm just too stressed with things ATM.

    Hi ladies!

    Glad to hear you're all keeping busy. DP doesn't think he's going to get renewed for his current job here in Geelong, so it'll be back to Melbourne! I'm kinda glad, as I'm really not liking living at his dad's place.

    Good news though, my brother and fiancee are moving to Melbourne! Yay! It'll be so good to see more of them!

    Beats, I hope wee Cam picks up a bit of speed!

    Hi ladies

    Sorry - just saw this just now!

    Beata - I know how you feel. We're going through the same thing with Fraser. We'd been on a wait list to see a developmental pead and we have an appointment tomorrow! Fraser's hardly saying any words at all (we know he understands everything we say to him, but he's just not that interested in talking) and he was also late to walk, crawl, etc, so our doc thought we should see this guy just to give us peace of mind. I hope you get an appointment sooner! Good luck with your TTC also!

    Rooey - Yay for going back to Melbourne. Hope it all works out well!

    Meercat - good luck with the TTC. I hope that Tiah is sleeping a bit better for you. Hopefully this warmer weather we're having over here will help tire her out!

    Hi to everyone else!
