Instead of marking place, please could those of us with older siblings post something (positive) they are looking forward to as our babies get older. I think it would cheer us up since so many are struggling at the moment.

Woah that was a mammoth post. Sorry.

Well helloooooo everyone!

I'm really going to try ever so hard to keep up with people now. Lovely seeing everyone's pics on fb but feel I'm missing vital stuff going on here!

My input re older siblings- ds is 2.8 and is a great talker, we have long chats about all sorts and he just seems to have grown up so much in the past few months. He's amazing smile

There's a song in Mamma Mia about when the daughter grows up. School bag in hand... All about saying goodbye as the child gets mroe and more independent. Since having DD I cry buckets every time I hear it or even think of it.

'Slipping through my fingers* PR waaaah! Gets me every time.

Why? Because I said so! I swore I would never say that, but you do. Eventually.

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 16:50:45

Took me about an hour to get to the because I said so answer. I'm not known for my patience. I'm sure I'll do better with my own though. Might even get to an hour and a half.

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Sat 09-Mar-13 16:53:02

blonder yes, there is one quite near us so we will take her at some stage. She will bloody love it.

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Sat 09-Mar-13 16:53:29

Oh yes, that song makes me WAIL.

BigPigLittlePig Sat 09-Mar-13 16:54:48

Hello new thread.
One word (actually 3) - first nativity play <sobs>

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 16:58:31

Oh I'm not going to get to see nativity plays. They don't do that kind of thing very much over here. They do the odd end of year show, but no nativity sad

Just youtubed that song. Bad move. Couldn't stop myself though.

DD1 used to absolutely beam whenever she sneezed - I guess because everyone looked at her and said bless you - she looked so pleased with herself it was sooo cute. I wonder if N will do the same?

I'm looking forward to N saying DD1's name and to seeing them play together.

TooManyDicksOnTheDancefloor Sat 09-Mar-13 17:34:52

I can't wait to be able to communicate. When they're not forming proper words but they babble with great expression so you can actually have a full conversation that other people wouldn't understand! Not sure what age it happened with dd1, it kind of creeps up on you and it's ace!

stunt thank you for this. You have no idea how much I needed to read all these things. Well actually, you did know, which is why you suggested this thread starter. But anyway, thank you thanks

Had an ok day today, went to the hairdressers and the shops by myself. which should have been great but I was too tired to appreciate it. I know I will feel better for it though, as having bad roots always depresses me. Shallow but true.

I hope you are having lovely days. Mothers Day tomorrow, should be a very special one, especially for the first time mums amongst us. Anyone have any nice plans?

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 18:04:07

It's not Mothers Day in France. We're planning a decluttering session grin

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Sat 09-Mar-13 18:07:11

PR that's my idea of a good day anyway!

PurplePidjin Sat 09-Mar-13 18:14:47

Dicks i do that with R when he does a long gurgle blush i actively listen to him iyswim i also do it with the cat

PurplePidjin Sat 09-Mar-13 18:16:29

It would probably be less creepy if i were pushing a buggy, he's usually in the sling under my coat with only his hat peeking out...

PurplePidjin Sat 09-Mar-13 18:20:18

I'm going to treat my friend to coffee - her p walked out on her and 8mo dd 3 weeks ago. Would it be odd to get her a card? Then we're off to my folks to see them and my gran. Anything that happens for me is entirely in dp's hands, i shall report back hmm

Catbag Sat 09-Mar-13 18:30:50

VQ blush What can I say? Numbers are not my forte blush again!

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 18:34:23

pp a card with a little thinking of you message would be lovely. I don't think people send enough cards anymore.

PennieLane Sat 09-Mar-13 18:45:39

What a lovely post luis and great idea stunt it's made me all starry eyed for the future.

I'm in Luxembourg so missed the end of last thread, mainly because we've hit the sleep regression. Thought we'd already done it but oh no! LO will not sleep during day and fights going to sleep. So far she's still doing long stretches at night, though much shorter than they were. Feel nervous. Lack of pushchair is NOT helping as that's a fail safe to get her to sleep, but lovely local shop has found us a very nearly new replacement for miserable amount insurance co will cough up. Looking forward to picking it up next week.

One thing that makes up for lack of sleep is how much more fun DD is , it's like several lights have switched on-laughing lots and properly playing with and touching things. Looking forward to all the things you guys have mentioned! Lovely thought!

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 18:49:11

How are you enjoying Lux? We'e getting snow again next week sad

kissyfur Sat 09-Mar-13 19:07:33

Looking forward to LO holding her arms out to me for a cuddle, I cried when DD1 first did that smile

Bit of a funny day here, not done a great deal apart from spend 3+ hours in the car going to collect DP's snowboard ready for his trip next week (not relishing the thought of a week in my own with the 2 kids!) anyway at least LO got lots of sleep in the car, she's being fussy with feeding again this evening. Screaming and screaming when I tried to feed her, even though she's due a feed?! Quite happily laying on her mat now tho! Wtf is that all about?

YellowWellies Sat 09-Mar-13 19:10:04

I'm looking forward to taking DS to the Christmas market in Edinburgh - and meeting the reindeer from Aviemore smile

PennieLane Sat 09-Mar-13 19:14:09

PR loving it, it's actually perfect for us right now-low-key, tranquil and lots of lovely food and wine! you are lucky, despite the freezing winter. hmm about snow, though I think it's also hitting London on Monday. Fuck off shit weather!!

Lilliana Sat 09-Mar-13 19:21:38

Quick q before i catch up. There is blood in L's sick which has come from my nipple sad is this a problem? Can i keep feeding from that side?
