Hey ladies! Sorry I appeared to disappear! It's so lovely to see how your little ones have grown! So beautiful! I can't believe they are all 1! How quickly has it gone!
Mia has 8 teeth and is currently cutting 3 molars which is horrendous! It's made sleep worse than it was before and she didn't seem all that keen in the first place 😂.
Mia started walking just after her first birthday and it is still comical watching her stroll around!
She says mama and dada, dirty (I say don't touch that it's dirty or 'lets wipe your hands they are dirty after eating' so she uses that! She says ta, and chance which is mils dog.
Huge congratulations sugar! Amazing news! We are going to try conceive again after our wedding in Sept. I could have wrote your post about how to ttc as Mia is not a good sleeper, is still in our room! Hopefully by then Mia will have improved!
Lots of love to you all xxx

Aww lovely photo of Mia, Nalc! I think she looks like you. Sounds like she's doing really well. And how exciting that she'll be there for your wedding.
Tell me about it - Lyra is still in our bed. We don't even bother with her cot now as we all sleep much better this way. She still wakes me up for feeds but at least she's not crying. We're going to be moving house in a month or so, so we'll be going cold turkey and putting her in her own room.
I had an early scan today and was relieved to see everything seems to be going fine so far. There was a heartbeat, baby looked perfect (well the splodge looked perfect 😂) and I was measuring at 8+2.
Hope you're all doing well, and the babies too, of course.

Here's Lyra chilling in her trolley seat on a recent shopping trip (and flat out refusing to give my bag back).

Hi ladies, how is everyone? I can't get over how quickly time flies!! All good my end, Mia is a little character and constantly has me in fits of laughter! Still struggling with lack of sleep as she still wakes on average every 2 hours! xx

Mia is beautiful Nalc!
Its crazy how grown up our babies are now!
Jenson also isn’t a great sleeper, but he’s totally inconsistent with it. Some nights he will sleep through and others we will only get 1-2 hours sleep because he just won’t sleep! It’s exhausting!
Other than that he’s doing really well. He got moved up to the next room at nursery a couple of months early and is achieving all the development stuff early. Not sure where he gets his brains from!
Hope everyone else is ok xx

Sorry to hear you are struggling with sleep Nalc, have you considered bedsharing? We have been bedsharing with N since she was tiny, following the lullaby trust’s “safe 7”. Naomi does stir through the night but because she is right there I can get her back off to sleep without even waking up properly myself! Occasionally (once in maybe every 3-4m) she is awake for maybe an hour in her middle of the night and I am like a zombie the next day- I’m just so used to getting a decent amount of sleep 😂🤷♀️
That is a beautiful picture of Mia, love her bunny ears.
Jensen looks happy with the bubbles there MillP!
Sugar how is everything going? I have forgotten your dates 🙈
Naomi has been practising the word “yellow”, the sign “monkey” and helping with her nappy changes this week 😍

Lovely seeing all the babies getting bigger. Alex and Olivia are doing great. Olivia is starting school in September. Alex is loving Creche and starting to say a few words now. They are starting to play together which is Great. Hope sleep gets better soon Nali. Love Mia‘s bunny ears!

Lovely to hear from you all and see the lovely photos of the toddlers! They all look so grown up now.
How is the wedding planning going, Nalc?
We also still have a poor sleeper on our hands. We have been co-sleeping until recently but are now in our new house and want her to settle in her own room before the new baby arrives. It's tough when they won't sleep through isn't it!
Glad Jenson is enjoying nursery, MillP.
It must be so nice to see them playing together, Eglew!
I wish Lyra would be more helpful during nappy changes, Bunny! Sounds like Naomi is a great sleeper.
Lyra is doing well - she finally plucked up the courage to let go of the furniture about 7 weeks ago and is zipping around now. She loves to say "oh dear" and pretend she's on the phone.
I'm 26 weeks tomorrow and I can't believe how much more quickly the pregnancy has gone this time. We found out we're having another girl!
Hope you're all enjoying / coping with the heat.

Here's one of Lyra on holiday last week.
And one of us together at a friend's wedding a few weeks ago. I definitely feel like I have a more noticeable bump this time around!

Hello. Can you help with this thread? A mum of an 18month old boy is using Pampers Size 7 nappies, but they are leaking every night - there's no size 8 - do you have any pointers? We're sure she'd really appreciate any help on this thread.
17/07/2018 at 11:05
That is a lovely bump Sugar, and Lyra looks so grown up!
I hope you are finding the hot weather ok and managing to get some sleep xx

how is everyone? and the babies?
Sugar - when is the little one due? you look great!
nothing really new here...still plodding along working silly hours and Jenson's still loving nursery. He's still learning sign language which is coming on great but this last week he's also started picking up some Punjabi! He's picked it up from some twins at nursery, and hes already figured out that he only uses those words when talking to them...it really amazes me how easily kids pick things up!
Do your little ones talk much yet? Jenson's learning new words at a crazy rate now! It seems every day his talking is getting better - clearer and stringing more words together.
Nalc - i hope the sleep situation has got better for you! We seem to gradually be making progress there although its still very hit and miss how much sleep we get!
anyway, hope everyone is ok! xxx

Alex is learning lots of words too And understands even more ! My big girl started school so Alex is loving havi time alone with his Mum. Hope all the Mammies and babies are doing well

hi ladies, really hoping someone might be able to help me!
my amazing mum is a foster carer and has just taken in the baby sibling for the two children she’s already caring for.
Shes looking to find a lightweight, easy to use frame and car seat. She has a pram which she has been using most of the time but for school runs she really needs a seat that she can just take out and clip on a frame.
The two she already has are at different schools 20 mins apart so being able to do collections quickly is a must.
the other factor to consider is cost as she will have to fund this herself.
any advice on your experience with reasonably priced seats/frames or reputable second hand places to buy would be very gratefully received!
thanks so much xx
p.s. Hope you and babies (although not really babies anymore 😭) are all doing great!! Xx

MillP, we bought the Chicco Liteway Plus travel system for holidays. It's a stroller and car seat that clips on very easily. It has lasted us 3 holidays so far plus occasional use at home. It feels a bit rickety compared to our iCandy but I guess that's to be expected! I can't remember where we bought it from now but we got a pretty good deal online somewhere.

How are your toddlers all doing? Lyra is good - loving running around and really starting to get into talking. I think Christmas is going to be exciting this year now she understands a bit better!
Well we had our second daughter, Ariadne, almost 8 weeks ago now! It has really been a whirlwind this time. Lyra loves her sister and only gets jealous occasionally.
This is the two of them together in the first week and Ariadne at a month old.
Hope you're all doing well!
