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

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

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

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!

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!

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!

Congratulations, Petty. Briliant news!!!

JoJoB77 Tue 18-Jun-13 19:20:43

Big congratulations Petty, lovely news!

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!

pettyprudence Wed 26-Jun-13 22:57:00

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.

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....

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
