Akeesha and Claire sound like they are pretty much developing at the same rate, I got her weighed yesterday and she's 6.94kg I was so hoping she'd be 7kg. Wears mostly 00's, 0 bonds wondersuits and 000 bonds shirts sad CHN is not worried though, she's grown 5cm in 6 wks and is gaining weight slowly, developmentally alert, feeding herself now, still drag crawling but trying to push herself up onto knees, babbling away so she's just a petite little thing. Still no teeth *sigh* I guess she's now the last to be waiting on teeth. I'm gonna turn her seat around on friday now she's 70.5cm long, if I wait until 9kg she's gonna be like 15mths!! She's waking at about 5.30/6 for a feed then going back to sleep until 8-9am which is great cause it gives me time to get steven's lunch ready and abby ready for daycare when she goes. She's up for an hour and half no matter what time she gets up and then has another sleep which could be anywhere between 45mins-2hrs. Wakes for lunch, has a play then has another sleep which again can vary between 45mins-2hrs and then is awake until 6-7pm. I'm trying to push out her bedtime to 7pm now cause giving her that last feed later is allowing her to sleep through the night. She just eats and eats but, 3 meals plus 2 snacks plus dessert now and absolutely loves arrowroot biscuits. She's sticking her fingers in her mouth everytime I put a spoon of food in and I got so sick of her getting covered the other day I just gave her her weetbix container and the spoon and she had a great time shoving fists full of weetbix in her mouth. Abby never really did the finger food thing so I'm a little lost.. given she still has no teeth I'm a bit limited it but like soft fruit now too. I've started giving her a little soy milk in a cup to start the weening process really really slowly. I'm hoping by 12mths I can either take her off the breast or at least just keep the first morning and last at night feeds up until she weans herself, she's such a distracted feeder trying to feed her anywhere but in her room in her chair just before a sleep is a bit of nightmare. Hopefully we can just go from breast to cup, so far things are looking good smile
I have been following the news on here just don't come into huggies really at all anymore so I always forget to come and post. Congrats to Erin for getting to 12wks and can't wait to hear about your scan next week, congrats to Mel for getting engaged - I would take your measurements very very accurately and send them off to the cheaper maker, $900 is nothing to be sneezed at and the dress will get worn for one day.. Mine was second hand - a $2500 dress for $875 you wouldn't have known it though.
I've gotta go finish cleaning up as I'm having a tupperware party tomorrow. The last of 3 because none of my friends would have one for me so I had them all myself. I haven't done too badly, probably about $350 worth of free tupperware from it but I have spent alot too.. Think I'm getting a cold too, I've been fighting it off for over a week think my body just gave up. I joined a gym with my best friend and she really wanted to do Aqua Aerobics even though it's getting a bit cold now think that's where I got it from..
Can't believe our babies are nearing 10mths, where have the last few months gone?? Soon we'll be planning parties - how exciting smile
