oh no Erin I can't believe DH is going to miss pretty much your whole pregnancy sad when he gets back I'm sure he's going to allow you to just put your feet up and look after the kids.. You must be getting big now??
There are heaps of ppl preggers at the moment around me at the moment, makes me all clucky.. My best mate just found out she's 15wks pregnant .. it's so funny since she's missed all the first trimester she's just starting to pop and gets to find out what she's having in mid June, no waiting around, mind you she doesn't find it as funny, it wasn't planned and she's only got like 5 mths to prepare but I still like to giggle at her smile
Claire still has 2-3 sleeps a day if we are home. She'll get up around bout 6-7am, then back to sleep around 9, up for lunch and down again bout 1 and if I'm lucky she might have another sleep in the arvo but it all depends on how long she sleeps. If we are out she won't sleep.. she's been waking at night 1-3 times it's driving me up the wall a bit.. we've had total breast refusal for a little while so start to try and give her some milk, tried soy, lactose free and normal to see what she likes and drinks them all the same. I was trying to give her sippy cups but when she wasn't feeding and she wasn't drinking very well from the cups I tried her on a straw cup and she's been drinking like a trooper smile No-one told me she was a straw cup baby, these kids really need to come with a manual smile She's been feeding a little bit more this week but I think I will just keep going till the milk dries up, if she keeps only having a little bit here and there in the early morning and night it shouldn't take long, she only feeds from the left so we'll see.
Otherwise I've been letting her start to feed herself and she shovels her weetbix in every morning with her hands.. Eats arrowroot biscuits by the packet but I'm having trouble to try and think of finger foods that I can give her considering she still has NO TEETH!! The lumps are there, I got so excited last week cause I saw a hole where I thought a tooth was cutting through but a week on no progress sad if her nappies and sleeping is anything to go by they're in there and growing but just not cutting through.. She's also getting pretty good at pulling herself up but we don't have any tables or shelves and the couch is too high for her to pull herself up on so she's getting more brave and exploring trying to find something to use. We're going to go pick up a wooden table and chairs tomorrow for the girls that hopefully she'll be able to use. Also started her 1 day a week at daycare 2 weeks ago and she's been ok. There was a child there that just cried non-stop all day which really aggitated all the other kids so he's been changed to another day so hopefully tomorrow will be will be a little more calm.
For the girls birthdays we are doing a party at the playground on the 7th. I have to try and figure out how to make 2 cakes and it's time to start organising stuff since it's only 2 weeks away. We all be struck down by gastro this week so slowly recovering .. On the plus side it's made abby more aware of what she's doing toilet wise so we are having semi success but alas still a frustrating excercise..
Might end it there, everyone still awake?? I really need to come in more often to post but sometimes forget .. Hope you are all busy preparing for your little ones first birthdays, I really can't believe it's been a year since we were all going "over it, want this baby out, sore sore sore, can't wait for birth" wow what a year grin
