I thought i would start of a new post for 2007 babies, as i know there are a few on here.
As you know i have Hollie who was born in september 2007, it has flown by and she is not far off 1 years old Time has definately gone too quick.

I know exactly what you mean Karen, i don't know where the time has gone!!
I was looking back through his baby photos the other day and i can't believe how much he's changed!!
He's becoming his own little person with a wicked sense of humour!! We're also starting to see an independant streak developing too and he really doesn't like it when he doesn't get his own way!!!
Roll on the terrible two's!!!!!

Ahh that's lovely to start it off again
I can't believe ambers 15 months old, shes the age ethan was when i found out i was having her, shocking!!!!!!!!
She's a proper toddler now and has really mastered climbing and also loves dancing! She's also to my surprise telling us when shes poohed!!!!! Ethans only been donig that since this jan!!!!!! According to my mother in law though, she's not got great speech, isn't musical and isn't very fiorward for her age!!!
Mother in laws, hey??!!!

Thank god i don't have a mil, i just have the sil who knows it all
Amber sounds like she's doing fantastically well!!! Cameron still only says Mama and Dada and he says it to everyone and anyone
Ignore her, you know yourself how far Amber's come in the past few months

Thanks Dawn, i know she's doing fine so am simply happy she's eating, saying that mil also thinks there's nothing wrong with her!!!!!!
You're not going to believe me when i say i get on with mil great! I've learnt to ignore the comments and simply enjoy a glass of wine with her!!!

Tasha your mil doesnt seem to know her grandchild very well then. Amber has done fantastically well and seems an intelligent little girl.
Dawn, Hollie is also very independent and i hate to say we can already see tempers brewing if she doesnt get her own way
She too is mastering climibing, she couldnt climb the stairs the other day but when i turned round she was half way up them that gave me quite a shock. Her latest trick is to hang onto the top of the settee and climb up it lol.
Tasha thats really good she is telling you when she has poohed, i am dreading the potty training process with Hollie. My sister was telling me the other day how she used to put a plastic bag in the buggy for the boys to sit on to hold accidents. And how they managed to pee in the toybox plenty of times, hopefully Hollie wont be too bad

Taaha that's good you can get on with your mil I get on reasonably well with John's sister, i've started to ignore a lot of the advice i've been given too. We're just soooo different, she takes everything so seriously whereas i really don't !!
How's Amber this morning? I read in another post you thought she might be having another reaction to apples, hope she's ok!
30/06/2008 at 09:04
Karen, they certainly like to keep us on our toes!!!!
Cameron loves to climb too, you only have to turn your back for a few seconds and he's almost standing on the window ledge !!
I don't even want to think about potty training, the whole idea just fills me with dread
30/06/2008 at 09:41
Theres no way i'm gonig to potty train amber for at least another year, i've only just done ethan and so need a break!!
That's great Ho0llie climbed the stairs karen if a little scary!!
Dawn, Amber had an ok night but is very oversensitive this morning and has diahhreah we know shes teething but are almost certain shes reacting too just because of how she is in the evnings, its very similar to how she used to be. We've stopped giving her apple now and going totry and start gravy this week instead when we find one she can have. Next week's lamb!!!!
Ambers started copying ethans phrases now and has just mastered 'oh well' and uh oh'!!! its so cute!!

Dawn that is scary how quick they move though isnt it? Our hv have a scheme going where they give you a free fireguard, safety pack and stair gate after the 6 month check up. I have to go and pick ours up today. I will be so glad when we get them, Hollie doesnt touch the fire but is forever playing with the tools as we have a coal fire. And i need to block off all the rooms upstairs as the landing is a death trap with a big Hollie sized gap in the banister. So even if we use a stair gate at the top of the stairs she can still fall, so we need to block rooms of instead.
Tasha, i hope Amber is ok i read the other post too. It's such a shame she has reacted to apple but at least you know what has caused it and you are able to stop before it gets too severe.
I am so lucky i dont have any in laws at all Ian has no sisters or brothers, and his mum wont talk to him. The only person he gets on with is his cousin who lives 5 mins away, and his dad who died 9 years ago. So Hollie has never seen his family, its such a shame. And when he rang his mam to say i was pregnant she didnt say anything and changed the subject moaning about something else. So he didnt even tell her Hollie is a girl or that she has been born. But on the plus side my family love her and i have 4 sisters and a brother who spoil her rotten
30/06/2008 at 12:46
What a great idea to give each family a free fireguard and stair gate!!!! We were given a stair gate by my niece and my sister bought us another one and our fireguard!!
We've also got a coal fire and to say he's obsessed with it is an understatement!
Tasha, i'm sure she'll love gravy and lamb Fingers crossed there's no reactions to them!!
That's such a shame that Ian and his mum don't get on, she's missing out on so much.

It is a shame but Ian has said if she saw him in town she wouldnt even say hello. When i met him he was going through a hard time with her, as he bought a house which her and her husband moved into with him. It was a joint mortgage although he paid it and he had lived there before they moved in. He got fed up with them as they were using his things and he didnt feel like he had his freedom. So he chucked them out. A while later though they went to the solicitors and got the house put up for sale forcing him out, and he saw none of the money. My family do more for him and treat him more of a son than his mother does, which is a shame.
There is something about coal fires though, Hollie loves the coal bucket, the poker and the tool for opening the ashes tray. She is forever playing with them and gertting covered in coal. A few weeks ago we lost the fire and relit it because the house was cold. Ian was at work so i did it, and i was cleaning it out when Hollie crawled over and climbed up on my lap to help me. She got covered in dust lol.
Tasha, i hope Amber reacts fine to lamb, then she will be on her way to a roast dinner.

seif was born august 20 and is almost one year now. since my husband is inot baking very much, i'm trying to convince him to bake a train cake for seif's birthday but we can't seem to find a train mould in egypt.
anyway, he's becoming real chatty too, calling tinda all day long! who or what that is.... i don't know.
girls, i started potty training him one month ago. a friend told me that all those surveys that tell you not to potty train before 2years old (as they have no bladder control) is basically crap and is conducted by major diaper companies so that mothers continue buying diapers. she potty trained both her kids at 9 months and they were dry by 1year and 3 months maximum.
anyway, i don't push seif that much, but we read stories and eat on the potty and he's getting the hang of it. it's actually nice to not change any poo poo diapers, since it all goes in the potty.
i just hope the teething nightmare ends soon

I brought Jessica a potty a few months ago and she doesn't want to know, she will sit on it with her clothes on, but as soon as you take her nappy of she won't sit down! She knows what a wee is though as if you say to her have you had a wee wee she will make a ssssssss noise and hold her Lily(what we call her girlie bits)

yeah i was home for christmas i had abbie at 2.18am and was at home having a cup of tea at 6.45am it was lovely to be there when the children woke up as my friend had them from about 3pm on the friday and she had put them to bed and stayed with them my parents came around to help her to put them to bed as they are a handful but it was lovely to see stephens face when he saw his new baby sister he helped to name her when i was pregnant as we had a scan to find out what i was having
abbie is laid back but also she can be very demanding at times and has her moments where she has a screaming fit for a hour and we wont have a clue what is the matter is and will try all sorts of different things and she wont want any off them
