In honour of sausage's forthcoming nuptials, with a nod to imminent weaning.

FrightNightFebes Fri 09-Oct-09 16:44:11

...<thinks really hard>....

zombietom Fri 09-Oct-09 17:22:13

sausagemonstermash Fri 09-Oct-09 17:30:37

Oooooooh I'm touched and honoured! grin grin Thanks,Scaryspangle - and a gallon of champagne please!

Oooh, no, how about a Woooooh Wooooooh! cocktail, instead of a woo woo? grin (I think its vodka, cranberry and something else, gawd, its been that loooooong!)

Llare - poorly you, hope you are getting loads of snuggly niceness smile

Spangle I have Galliano <passes it over> Now, have you lot tried a Galliano Hot Shot? Very nice this time of year <drools at the thought, but have no cream in the house>

HeadlessLadyH Fri 09-Oct-09 17:31:34

I'll take a glass of the bubbly please!

Did I see that toffeeapple has a crawler?Yikes!

Toffeeapplemmum Fri 09-Oct-09 17:34:39

Yup, Headless, he's not very efficient yet, but he can get around now. So gonna baby-proof the house this weekend !

sausagemonstermash Fri 09-Oct-09 17:42:31

..... btw, Headless - haven't ventured to babygap, but my Mum has ACTUALLY surrendered and bought M a black babygro with glow in the dark bones on - from Tesco! Hehe! Was in Mamas and Papas earlier - they have Christmas stuff in....hmm

HeadlessLadyH Fri 09-Oct-09 17:44:57

<hangs head in shame> have already bought R's Christmas baby gros and bibs.

HeadlessLadyH Fri 09-Oct-09 17:45:37

Or rather <dangles head in shame at side of body>

Salemchocolates Fri 09-Oct-09 18:06:20

HeadlessH PMSL @ the thought of you dangling your head.

Cocktails... I'm going to have....a... <ooh, there's so much choice>... a... mali-boo witches brew.

I was looking at little halloween outfits today, but didn't get anything. I fancy a little witches outfit for C grin. They don't seem to do them in baby size.

sausagemonstermash there's sooo much x-mas stuff in the shops now. It's horrible. Makes me think of work too much sad

toffeeapple shock a crawling G. Good and bad news. May C stay stationary for much much much longer. Ds was 9m, that would suit me fine grin

runningscared Fri 09-Oct-09 18:16:41

Woah ha ha ha ha ha <v poor attempt from me at spine tingling laughter>

toffeeapple well done G! Good luck with the babyproofing.

Right gonna cook tea take pizza out of oven blush

I'm feeling virtuous tea-wise as I'm having home made carrot & leek soup. It's supposed to be carrot and coriander but I had no coriander. It's a bit bland.

I gave H some chunks of carrot and leek. He had a little play and launched a brief attack on a carrot but couldn't be bothered after that. I spoon fed him a little bit of the soup when I'd blended it up and he was quite interested but not too sure about the texture I don't think.

H doesn't seem ready for BLW - can only sit for a few seconds, still has tongue thrust reflex and can't get the food to his mouth very well. I've been offering him something once or twice a day but he's not really bothered. He does best when my Dad & step-mum are here and we all sit around the table - H sits on my knee and has fun grabbing stuff off my plate - but he's less interested when it's just me... I obviously don't make an engaging dinner companion! Patience is the name of the game I guess.

<weakly>

hello.....

Am feeling better but am a bit weak. Before I became ill DS2 tried to eat my cheese sarnie but I whipped away from him. Too many seeds for a little one I think. I still want to wait until 6 months though, I don't think it was food he wanted, I think it was just something in his mouth.

Hi all,

This is first time I've looked at the Post-Natal Club threads.

Is this a thread for babies born in May this year? Wasn't sure as it talks more about cocktails! (Which is great imo as some of them sound lovely!) But just wondered what it was about really as DD was born in May and didn't know if this was something about the DC or just chit-chat really!

Thanks smile

Salemchocolates Fri 09-Oct-09 20:45:46

llare Hope you're feeling better soon.

spangle He'll get there. As long as he's happy with what he's having now, that's what's important. I bet one of these days it'll click with him and he'll start gobbling things up.

C keeps grabbing at stuff on our plate, but only because she's nosy. She just likes grabbing at things in general, practicing those little hands I think. DH gave her a green bean to hold today, but she just dropped it on the floor. I let him, because I knew she wouldn't do anything with it.

I got DH's suit + some lovely shoes for myself. I need sensible shoes though and bought some heels blush, also bought myself a few long sleeved tops. I did need some, because I had a choice of a black v-neck or 2 black roll neck jumpers or a purlple roll neck jumper hmm. I think it's because before I got pregnant I wore dresses half the time, so most my tops were plain to wear underneath a dress.

Right. I'm off to watch a little bit more of Criminal Justice.

llaregguBOO Fri 09-Oct-09 20:47:57

Bit of both Texas! Hello and welcome...

Salemchocolates Fri 09-Oct-09 20:48:53

Hi Texas,

It's mainly chit chat and sharing how our los are growing and changing. We also support eachother through growth spurts/developmental changes and give eachother tips and help etc...

It's a new thread, so that's all the cocktails grin. We have celebratory new thrad cocktails usually.

You're welcome to join us in the fun if you want to smile

Monstermomi Fri 09-Oct-09 20:52:08

spangle... <holding empty champagne flute out hopefully>

anymore left?

ScarySpangleMaker Fri 09-Oct-09 20:54:03

texas hello! Yes, it's a thread for babies born in May (tho mine misread his instructions and turned up on 1 April). It's mostly talk about the babies, believe it or not, but because we've been 'together' for a while there's a fair amount of chit-chat thrown in. You're very welcome to join us smile

Is your DD your first?

ScarySpangleMaker Fri 09-Oct-09 20:57:00

momi shure <hic> <sloshes champagne liberally in momino's direction>

texasholdem Fri 09-Oct-09 20:57:14

llareggu & salem, thanks very much!

I do love cocktails but since its the weekend an all that jazz a glass of champagne will do just nicely!

<tries to act like champagne is a regular feature in this house will going to the fridge for a bottle of miller>
