Brooking no argument for babies who sleep, eat, smile and behave perfectly at all times. Yeah right!

New thread, here we go...

Actually maybe in honour of fairies we should do a roll call thing?

hello fairies and welcome. Congrats on your ds, is he your first? Our thread is all about positivity and brooking no argument that things will go our way. We have a conception thread (the rat smackers), an ante natal thread (sneeze births) and the post natal one here but we are always happy to welcome newbies at any point in the process.Get stuck in!
Wow too that's come around quickly. I'm sure she'll be fine and settle in quickly. Are you baking something tasty?
I am putting off the packing and have decided to look at white goods on the net whilst dd is asleep in my lap. I also need to tackle the cavernous cupboard in ds's room while he's at school so he doesn't start demanding to get it all out to play with.

Ds ( George ) is 2nd so stupidly knew exactly what I was letting myself in for! Dd ( Caitlin ) is 5.

Ds sleeps through night and has done since bout 8 wks. I can't be smug tho as dd still does not reliably sleep through!!!

Hawthers - farley 40 something weeks? Nearly 11 months

F's sleeping got much better when I stopped bf but this could just be because I didn't feed him automatically when he woke in the night and was actually consistent in shushing and just cuddling. Also I got his naps sorted but <look away cakes> this took until he was 8 months old...

Isn't it frustrating when you buy something to give your baby and they just go bleurgh, not eating that? I knew I would be in a hurry today, went to Tesco at 8am and bought an Ella's Kitchen breakfast pouch and a lunch type one of lemon chicken with sweetcorn. M ate the breakfast one, mainly because she could suck it straight out of the pouch, but then threw up mango baby brekkie all over herself repeatedly. hmm Now she is turning up her nose at the lemon chicken and just wants bits of chicken out of my Tesco soup. I've run out of chicken and she's clearly hungry, but will she touch the puree? Not a chance. Banana being attempted now instead.

Ninja, am making lemon, blueberry and coconut traybake. It is yummy, if I do say so myself. It's partly for my small siblings tonight and partly for my friend who just had a baby tomorrow.

Hi Fairies! Pull up a brownie and make yourself at home smile

Cakes, DD started sleeping through at about 10 wks. Sadly, unlike scarlet's DCs, she then stopped at about 13. Ah well..

I think M is clearly after the tray bake.... grin

Hope Skyfall is wonderful Biscuits! Haven't yet had an opportunity to watch it...

too S puked and puked on that mango baby brekkie. I'd give her the traybake <terrible standards emoticon>

Hi Fairies! Mine don't sleep well, but now, DD sleeps through 6 out of 7 nights on average I reckon smile

Today I have DD, unexplained bad limp continuing from yesterday. Dh thinks viral, prob transient synovitis but not sure and S, temperature and grizzly, and B, no temperature and the only one with no identifiable problem, grizzliest!! Marvellous.

Oh, and too, thanks and sympathy, I hated going back to work after dd

Well too - I am loving my bits of works if it's any consolation? Im looking forward to upping it to 2.5 days when we're in Italy.

Oh god, we're moving to Italy in six weeks time...

I just had to google that virus Dream. Gah now I have another one to worry about. I hope your poorly 2 get better ASAP and the non-poorly one stops grizzling.

Only 6 weeks pomme? shock I'm soooo jealous <daydreams about escaping to live miles away from PIL>

Biscuits I can't wait to see Daniel Craig Skyfall, we're going next week.

Welcome Fairies

I still can't figure out how to copy from someone else's post on the IPad so please can someone add the below details to the list. Thanks muchly.

Skyfall was bloody ace! I loved Daniel Craig it smile

In laws looked after ds2 who cried for 20 mins when we went sad but seemed ok after that. And now we're going to have a take away with them (and wine!!)
