Hi all,
Thought I'd take the plunge and set up a new thread for us...never done it before so hope it works.

Will be back later to update properly, have busy day as DH is off on a track day on his motorbike and DD1 has already been driving me insane, it has only just gone 9am!!! xx

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Gah Arthurs first night in the big boy bed tonight (cot bed without the sides). I have been dreading this day but he was getting a bit casual about climbing out of the cot blush I have an old stair gate across his bedroom door so he can get out of bed all he wants but he's not getting out of his room! I think its going to be a looooooong evening! It makes me doubly excited to be going out on Monday and leaving the bedtime to my dsis grin

Congrats Petty. February is a great time to have a baby!

Lozario I am in awe of you wanting 3. Fingers crossed it happens soon.

Busy busy here. Hannah is doing great and finally talking (2/3/4 word sentences grin)). She seems to dropping her nap though and missed it 3 days this week <sob!>

Emilia is 4 months and such a cuddly happy baby. She doesn't sleep through though so i'm knackered all the time. I hope she doesn't wait until 18 months like Hannah....

Yes I told him but a couple of hours after he got home - got to be honest, it wasn't a moment for the baby book! I showed him my pee stick and he was very confused bless him. His first words were "oh, so you're pregnant" followed by "its a bit weird you waited until now to tell me" Erm.. well you've been farting about unpacking your suitcase and filling the laundry bag.

My dsis full on broke down in tears at lunch (in public) though! She does appear to cry at the drop of a hat though.... Only told my mum and dsis so far (oh and most of mumsnet, although obviously you lot were first grin)

I have joined the Feb 2013 thread but not really feeling it at the moment as it mostly seems to be a puke-off, and I, thankfully, am not puking!

Fingers crossed you get a bfp soon Loz. I started winding dh up in IKEA on Saturday that all the families in the restaurant had 3 children..... This is supposed to be our second and final child....

Suppose I should mention that A is good - doesn't shut up and is obsessed with anything with wheels. Must eat, sleep and drink with a vehicle in his hand or be sat peddling one.

Lozario Wed 26-Jun-13 22:42:41

petty that is amazing - how did DH react? (You have told him now, right?!) Wishing you a healthy and happy pregnancy, and hoping I won't be too long behind you!

Big congratulations Petty, lovely news!

eversomuch Tue 18-Jun-13 12:07:08

Congratulations, Petty. Briliant news!!!

Me again! Just got a BFP this morning!!! DH doesn't even know yet as he is away until tomorrow night so I had to run and tell you lot so that I don't explode with excitement in the office! Woohoooo!

Ooh its been quiet on here! We made the most of the sunshine while it lasted and went camping down the Gower - it was stunning! Arthur was so excited about camping, he didn't go to sleep until midnight on the first night! Eek! This is normally a boy tucked up by 7pm each night and can't tolerate staying up late!

This rain is driving me potty now because Arthur is cooped up inside and I am trying to do up the house. Have been escaping to a local council soft play though to meet friends and save my sanity!

We are off to run the bf group now where Arthur will spend 90 minutes having a meltdown over biscuits (EVERY WEEK). I don't know why he hates being there so much!

Hello lovely ladies smile

Well I (hesitantly) think that Ruby has come out the other side re tantrums. She seems much calmer and able to communicate more which helps. She has us in stitches most days, she loves wearing hats and sunglasses inside (!) and is a little whirlwind.

Emmy on the other hand is as placid as anything, she is so smily she just melts my heart. If i wasn't pushing 40 (well 36 this year grin) and we hadn't decided this is our lot, i'd be tempted to try for another!

Well its raining here (again) so we're in for the day but im going on a hen night tomoro, am tired just thinking about it, im in bed by 930 most nights shock.

Hope everyone is well!

Lozario Mon 27-May-13 15:52:49

Yes! We've been in the park with friends, L is currently conked out in buggy and the older one is snuggling with me on the sofa! Sooooo windy though!

How is everyone? L is definitely firmly in the terrible twos and has already perfected the art of the "flounce". Funniest thing is trying to make her laugh when she's trying to have a strop!! grin

highlandbird Sun 26-May-13 17:02:55

Everyone out and about enjoying this gorgeous weather? Adapting to life with two here but all going well A loving being a big brother! My standards have dropped massively wrt housework but were never very high in the first place wink
Hope everyone and their dc's doing well anyway x

sam26oscar Mon 29-Apr-13 22:04:56

yes jojo we're all waiting for you there grin grin

Lozario Mon 29-Apr-13 21:14:17

Jojo I've just sent you a private message about friend requesting smile

sam26oscar Mon 29-Apr-13 20:44:14

Jojo i think if you add one of us as friends on fb we can add you into the fb mumsnet group ...unless anyone else knows Petty?? Purple?? hmm

Lozario Mon 29-Apr-13 18:06:19

Yes we do but I can't for the life of me remember how we add people?! Anyone remember?

JoJoB77 Mon 29-Apr-13 15:40:10

Hi ladies

Do we have a March 2011 facebook page? Im back on fb and thought about joining our group if anyone can help??

Lozario Thu 18-Apr-13 22:08:26

highland you will be fine - and the good thing about going overdue is that you'll just be so glad not to be pregnant any more!!

When DC2 (Lara) came I used sling a lot for the baby so I could concentrate on DC1. As long as DC2 was fed and dry, I mainly concentrated on DC1 so as not to interrupt his routine. Having said that, Lara was pretty good and by 5 weeks was going down at 7ish like DC1!

I probably relied on telly a bit more to entertain DC1 but he bloody loves telly so he thought that was great.

highlandbird Thu 18-Apr-13 12:19:32

Wow Sam, is that contract for your DS?? Very exciting news no wonder you're a proud mummy!!

Lozario, congrats on school news, bet that's a huge weight off your mind, hope L is better too and spots all scabbed over so you can get out and about grin oh and if you're cracking open the wine have a glass for me too please, seriously missing it right now!

Trying most things to get this baby out....feels like its moved further in if anything, probably been hearing Angus' tantrums and decided it would be nicer to stay in my tummy! Mind you I had him on the fifth day after due date so today could be the day??
Starting to get slightly anxious about the thought of having 2 children and the practicalities as well (bit late to worry I know!) ....anyone have any last minute words of wisdom for me?? Have already bought a present for A from baby but I'm not convinced he's going to let me get away with it that easily!!

Lozario Wed 17-Apr-13 20:59:46

Just a quick update - we got 3rd choice school for DS today smile Happy with that - 2nd and 3rd choice were about the same and we still have a chance for 1st choice on waiting list. Phew! Have had a few glasses of wine this eve!!!

sam26oscar Wed 17-Apr-13 19:50:36
