We needed a new thread!

Thanks beasty. Think I might have to go to bed in a minute blush

Thank you beasty!
I've made risotto but DS was rather unimpressed. Although at the moment he is being really picky!

Today I bought him his first proper really expensive shoes. They are so cute! And oh so tiny! It was so funny watchin him walk in them. At first is was like I had strapped weight around his ankles but he wore them in the buggy home and tottered around the flat quite happily in them.

Evening! I'm a bit drunk

Today is day 3 of sleep training! It took 4 minutes, fuck yeah! Last night J slept 7-3 in his cot, then took 1h to go back to sleep and slept until 6:50. I'm sooooo happy after sleeping for no more than 3h per night since last Saturday, it's such a relief.

Hope everyone is doing well.

We need to go buy the boy shoes in the next few weeks. We can't afford to start buying him shoes too!

Thanks beasty
Excellent news willyou
spotty I was on my way up to bed and was met by dd1 on the stairs saying she can't sleep. She doesn't normally mess about so she's coming in with me for a couple of stories.

I'm going to have R measured for his 2nd (3rd if you count his unofficial ones I got for a quid from an nct sale so he could romp around the park!) shoes next week shock he's walking nearly all the time and has started saying proper words grin

MrsNutella Fri 21-Feb-14 21:08:32

Yay willyou that's great news!

fod I bought DS a really nice pair of shoes; because 1 I very rarely buy him nice stuff and 2 the PIL gave DH some cash last weekend for shoes for DS. So, I spent it on shoes.

FriendofDorothy Fri 21-Feb-14 22:06:15

MrsNutella what shoes did you get him?

WLmum Sat 22-Feb-14 07:27:23

I got Ts feet measured in Clark's then found the right size from my stash from dd1&2. She's got big feet though so didn't make in to 2 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of wellies! Dd1 particularly had tiny feet was nearing 2 when she was the size T is at 14 months!

We're going swimming tomorrow but I only have bikinis. Hope I don't see anyone I know blush

Today we're going to sainsburys to get ds a new swimming outfit and might buy us lunch too. Ds went up to dd this morning and was going 'mmmmmaaaaaa' which is his kissing noise!

Out sainsburys cafe is lovely Spotty, enjoy.

I stayed up half the night talking things over with DP (happier than he was, still not sure what he wants hmm) and then DS woke up and I did the other half awake with him. Am dead on my feet but J just tried to make it up to me with a full on French kiss. I managed to dodge the tongue in the mouth but it was close!

fod they are from ricosta. Pepino I think is the shoe name. No idea if they are available in the UK though... Sorry.

Dd wears pepino. Highly recommended by physio. Really supportive (and super cute!).

Thanks for the thread Beasty

Thanks beasty
Not heard of pepino, have always been a clarks shopper but will check out.
Glad you and dp are trying to work things out willyou

Thanks for the thread Beasty.

We have brought Heidi shoes from Clarks but also we got some for £4.20 in the monsoon sale. They should have been £15. DP also brought her some Adidas trainers yesterday.

Yay to the sleep training going so well.

FriendofDorothy Sat 22-Feb-14 17:05:32

Pepino are lovely. Think I am after some Pediped ones but there was nothing in stock!

WLmum Sat 22-Feb-14 19:53:48

You must be exhausted willyou. I'm glad you're talking about stuff with dp, hope he figures out exactly what he wants soon. Would you/he consider couples counselling?
hales bargain, I love monsoon kids - dds have been given beautiful things from there (not me buying!)
spotty I'm sure you'll look fab. I have got a saggy crepe belly so total one piece for me! We're taking the big 2 swimming tomorrow too. Hoping dd1 does as well as she did last week as it was a joy not the usual death by patience!

Me too WL! I have a baby pouch hmm

He won't do counselling WL. Wouldn't even consider it. I don't think he wants to admit his childhood has fucked him up a bit (to anyone but me).

That's one thing I do have. An okay tummy still, my friend at work made me get it out last week (my top rode up) and was very envy My mum told me it was the second baby that did hers though! Not much danger of that with the way things are looking! I hate my muffin top, I used to be a gym bunny and my sides are a bit bulgy now that I'm not to say the least.

I have stretch marks and two massive lumps from doing injections in my stomach for 14 years hmm

That's a shame WillYou. I hope you manage to sort things, if that's what you want.

Barbeasty Sat 22-Feb-14 20:28:01

Stretch marks and a big overhanging bulge. All from baby 2!

Swimming lessons for both DC, first time in a month, so not sure how it will go.

I went and had week-old baby cuddles with my niece today. A took it pretty well, before stuffing his face with a fairy cake. And then a second. And then we whipped them away as he tried to take a 3rd!

She was such a calm baby We nearly tried to swap and leave one of ours

WLmum Sat 22-Feb-14 20:33:05

I had no crepe or stretch marks until T. It was the third that did it - that and her being 2lbs heavier than dd1&2!!

That's tough willyou. Hope you can deal with things between you.

Nice beasty!
