Thanks Ging!

I think I'd get along with your wife, it's so hard not to buy everything!

Wow Chicago I canít believe how big she is haha! Sheís adorable.

Yeh we are doing the exact same and giving the baby our daughters old jumperoo as a present. We are also gonna get him an outfit, a little tummy time mat and a toy. To be honest, I wouldnít get him anything if I could help it because heís really too young to know any better but our daughter has a fascination right now with who is on Santaís good list and who is on his bad list. She was be devastated if her baby brother woke up to no presents because she would think it means heís on Santaís bad list lol.

For her I have gone a bit overboard! Her main present is a big pink wooden kitchen which I know she is absolutely going to love. Sheís also getting a big cabin bed, tickets to go see Disney on ice and a good few other toys. I tend to start my Christmas shopping just after her birthday in July so I donít really notice it as a big expense haha x

She is a great sleeper. Sheís gone through the night from 5 weeks so letís hope she stays a good girl

Laylaís main present arrived this morning actually. I ordered it in the Black Friday sale down to £70 from £120! The pink petals jumperoo. Apart from that Iíve got her a few teething bits, a couple of touch and feel books and a dragon teddy where you pull a little string and itís wings fly. She loved it in the shop so I had to get it. Itís hard this year isnít it. Itíll be much better next year lots more choice for gifts and theyíll be a little more knowing!

Does anybody have any cute gift ideas from baby to daddy? Either home made or something to order?

So jealous of everyone's good sleepers! Mine was up x4 last night and my 3 year old once (for an hour...). It's down hill in my house after 12 am. Oh well. Coffee time.

Babybump, I'm having Val's silhouette done for DH. There's a toy store here who has a silhouette artist in a few days every month so we're going Monday. I had Ted's done his first Christmas and it was great. My mom's getting the same thing.

Hey ladies!! I hope you are all doing well! I hope everyone is excited about the holidays. This is my favorite time of year. I love getting to see and spend time with my family. I think I'm finally starting to get adjusted to going back to work and everything. We have officially started TTC #2. We are excited for our little man to have a sibling. Now let's see how long that takes. Ha.

MrsK that silhouette thing sounds super cute!!!

So far Trent has impatient grandparents that can't seem to wait to give Trent his Christmas gifts. I don't know about yalls LO but mine HATES or hated his old carseat. He would scream bloody murder in that thing. So for Christmas my parents got him the big boy carseat that goes from 4lbs-120lbs. So he is set. Then my parents got him the DVD player for the car so he has something to look at smh. All of which has been in my car since thanksgiving. So now granny is on the hunt for some thing for "Christmas". My BFs parents got him a walker and a crap load of toys and such so we only got him a stationary seat with activities center and a thing to help him go from sit and play, to crawling, to walking. We also got him Elmo that sings abcs and I'm going to get him some more books. He is starting to show interest when I read to him. We also find out if we are pregnant on Christmas day so there could be that to.

You know.. at first I was shocked that you were already TTC.. but then I realized that's pretty much the schedule we were on. Nora was born 10/19/16 and I found out I was pregnant with Chloe the day after Christmas last year (technically two days before, but they said the beta was so low they said it was likely a CP. The day after I had my repeat beta showing the rise). So we are about a month closer than Trent and this baby would be. There's definitely pros and cons to having babies so close in age. It feels like a lot of hard work now, but I'm PSYCHED for when they'll be able to play with one another. Honestly they already love each other so much I think they'll be the best of friends. Eyes on the prize.

Good luck with testing! How long did it take you to conceive Trent?

We talked about when we wanted to try and having them close in age and I said it's pretty much like having twins and people do it and live to tell the tail all the time. Plus with me being 34 I just don't want to wait to long to start trying because as we all know its not as easy as people like to think it is. I was very blessed, lucky or whatever people believe in with Trent. We were not even trying. He just kinda happened. We had the oh well if it happens it happens thing going on and poof. Now we are actively trying and we are trying to shettles method to try for a girl.

Good luck Amber! I think you're a little crazy but I timed TTC Valentine around turning 35 so I can't blame you really . There's really nothing like sibling love, every day Teddy and Valentine just melt my heart. If I have to leave the room for a minute and she gets upset I usually come back to a baby covered in toys because he's trying to cheer her up.

V is getting so smiley, she's such a cheerful baby. She's so big, I'm not sure what she weighs but she's starting to wear some 6-9 month clothes. She's starting to really wiggle around too. I put her on her back on the playmat the other day and she did a full 180į spin . I don't think she's quite ready for the jumperoo, though, so I'm second guessing giving it to her for Christmas. I don't want it taking up space if we aren't using it.

We're doing great overall but omg is it hard to get two kids ready to go out! Especially with how frequently she's nursing. I don't think I've been on time once since she was born, even when we start really early
