Hello!! I'm back to after getting very behind on the previous thread - 1000 posts in just under a month!
My baby isn't doing any of the title things yet - she does sort of shouting noises but no words or real talking sounds yet. She is excellent at hand to mouth coordination (and had a pincer grip at just over 6 months), she also looks like she's taking everything in, and gets really excited at bubbles and animals. I'm sure she'll catch up soon enough!

fuzzzy mama penguin would love to join the group on fb!...fuzzzy would you be able to add me if I pm'ed you my id....at the end of the week of course...you have enough on your hands this week..

...also we have a crawler smile...he was heading off towards the door this morning and I called after him asking where he was heading off too. he turned around, gave me a 'i'm up to no good' smile and then tried to dash off again...which of course meant crawl, crawl, crawl with a bum shaking like shakira....i love this stage!

i have to speed up on the baby proofing. what do all of you do about the wires around the place? found him the other day trying to pull the telephone and broadband cables out of the socket.

sassy still hoping for you that the doc was wrong...how is E

outnumbered hope the two of you feel better soon......a cold and post holiday blues...not good....

mama that's twice you've said 3. you must have it imprinted on your mind, despite my writing other wise. wink

the twins will be 2. that's 2 years old. grin
got a whole year to wait til they are 3, because this birthday they are going to be 2. heehee. hope that worked! smile

well, i think the doc might have been wrong, as they are less aggressive looking this morning and they havent spread confused

she's not ill with it, and she's still eating, so its not a bother at the minute.
she has 2 new teeth coming through. my kids must be hard as nails,. she hasnt cried, woke up in the night, gone off her food or anything! you only know she has teeth cos you can see um.
she can sit up from crawling by herself now and she's cruising. she has just started to put her hands out to you, to be picked up.

pebble mama i appreciate the effort. smile
i go back up and scroll though sometimes but most of the time ive forgot
again by the time ive got back to the reply box!
left playgroup yesterday and was almost home before i remembered that the nursery manager had gone off to find out some information for me! oops. im not fit be let loose at minute. these pills are making me more forgetful than i was before!

out hope you are enjoying your hols?

pink welcome back.

Hi everyone
Sorry been away so long, hoping to keep up this time. blush
Mhairi has had an er infection lately but hopefully is coming through now but it has totally knocked off all semblance of a sleeping routine and both she an I are exhausted all the time sad
She can't crawl forward yet but an get from her tummy to hands and knees to bum an she bum shuffles quite well. No cruising here yet though she does have a few words.
Mummy - me
Dada- dad
Mama- boob
Nana- my gran grin
Hope everyone is well

I missed what was wrong with the kids sassy hope they're ok

FuzzzyDuckosaurus Tue 10-Jul-12 09:44:07

pp aww don't feel like M has catching up to do. It's amazing just the difference a few weeks makes. I forget when M was born in the month. S is one of the older ones but has had a huge development leap in just the past week. A few things she can now do;
Points to sky when she hears a plane (emirates geek here blush)
Points to her head when you ask her
Waves 'bubye' and put her hand up to say 'hi'
Can say 'baba, dada, and just getting there with mama' will also say mum when she is crying
Holds out her hands to be lifted
She is really starting to point at things now and I love how she has moments when she just sits and takes everything in

Yes to whoever it was that said about the wires!! I swear she goes looking for them!

Morning going good so far. Brought her bumbo so she sat in that to have breakfast and now we have escaped into other room while she had her nap and kids play on wii. Hoping to try get out for fresh air later. Weather said rain by 1pm though sad

Morning ladies and babies!

Just marking my place smile.

Hi y'all. Well I managed to read most of the last thread if not post very much which is an improvement.
Jealous of all those with ggp; our 2 have one gp on each side. I guess its what happens when you leave having kids to when you're older.
Off to the dietition today to talk about dairy & soy intolerance.

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 10:16:30

2??? Is that twooo sassy ;) imprinted now onmy mind. How the hell do you manage3 under 2?

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 10:37:14

chocolate/vodka/anti d's!!!!

grin

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 10:44:21

its took me 30 mins to work out ggp and gp gole !!!

im old, and we have no ggp's, although dd1 had 1 ggp until she was 6.

i lost 2 gp before i was a teenager.
i feel sorry for my dp has he as lost 3 of his in 5 years. he still has his grandma, so the youngest 3 have 1 ggp on his side.

MamaMaiasaura Tue 10-Jul-12 10:45:04

grin you could market that.

<signs back in>

Scheherezade Tue 10-Jul-12 13:11:56

Right - I just wanted to defend myself. I hate dramas and scandals etc, so I was just trying to lie low and hide away whilst it all calmed down/was forgotten about. Mama pmd me, I explained why I had been upset (and acknowledged it was just the way I was seeing things, and may not have been intended that way. Maybe that was wrong to do, but I prefer to settle things privately, than publicly), and said "thanks for apologising" - whether she missed that message, I don't know. But I have it saved in my sent box, so it's definitely there.

I can't stand any of the "he said she said" stuff, so when I saw I was being nastily written about to say I had ignored apologies, and I did feel that was playground, and so felt uncomfortable returning to the thread, it's just embarrassing, for all involved. After being portrayed that way (unfairly) it didn't/doesn't feel like I'd be welcome, anyway.

I just want it all to go away. I'm quite a shy person IRL, and don't like getting involved in this stuff. But I want to point out I DID say thank you, and staying off here isn't me having a sulk or flounce, I just wanted to let things die down.

What with what's happened with expat and her little girl, a difference of opinion isn't a big deal.

ClimbingPenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 13:22:23

sch I am sorry you feel that you were being attacked and I hope you are able to take the chance to take a proper break from all of this.

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 13:23:21

scheh i dont think ANYONE has said anything nasty about you on here at all.

i think mama was trying to say that you hadnt acknowledged her apologise or made one of your own, as a sign that you were not showing signs of letting it go/getting passed it.

i met you in rl and you did come across as quiet and shy, but on here you can be quite confrontational and i've bit my tongue a few times. maybe you dont mean to, maybe you dont realise you are doing it? but if you want to post something that opposes someone elses view, you have to say it in a way that doesnt attack that way of doing things, and im afraid that that is what you sometimes do.

im not speaking for anyone else by the way- i may be a lone voice in my opinion and thats fine. this is not playground mentality, where everyone is ganging up on you. we all are grown ups and ive not sniffed out a bully/alpha female in the group. i think we are all extremely nice women with lots of support and advice and no judging. so i find it hard to see where you are coming from.

mama has apologised, you say you have. its best just left.

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 13:28:31

welcome back climbing

sassy34264 Tue 10-Jul-12 13:36:38

of course you would be welcome by the way.

how's chubby cheeked cyrus doing?

ClimbingPenguin Tue 10-Jul-12 13:39:58

thanks smile

DS is still not quite crawling as he tries to get onto his feet, if DD drops some food on the other side of the room he quickly gets there though grin He can 'crawl' around and then take himself up to sitting. Still can't get over the fact DD was walking by now but I am enjoying him being less mobile. He has been more contented this week which has made things easier, I ended up leaving most of the playgroups early last week as it was too hard with him.

FWIW I agree with sassy and I agree that it isn't personal/intentional on your part, just I worry for you in case it's insecurities etc. getting to you. (I noticed you on other threads). I really do hope you are OK though, as I am sure others do too.

LittlePebble Tue 10-Jul-12 14:26:13

scheh no one has said anything bad about you, everyone just wants to all get along and move past it x how's Cyrus?

climbing grin good to have you back, are your nights any better?
