Val is saying mama! Teddy's first word was kitty and he took forever to say mama, so this is really exciting! I've been watching for about a week and it seems like she really means it and isn't just babbling. She's getting good at army crawling but can't lift herself up yet for a regular crawl. She's good at supported standing but she still hasn't figured out sitting herself up without help or pulling up to standing.

How's everybody else doing?

Wow thatís fab sheís speaking! Go Val! Is she still big for her age?

Omg I canít beloeve you are just about to have twins lol! Best of luck. I defo couldnít have another right now. Zack is such a mummyís boy itís ridiculous. I can hardly even put him down without him just following me about the house crying until I pick him up again. He really wouldnít cope well with having to share me with another baby so weíve put NTNP on hold for now. Iím actually a bit worried that hubby has been put off the isea of another baby completely because Zack has been quite a difficult baby.

Zack has started saying Ďmum mum mumí but itís only when heís upset so either heís calling out for me when heís said or itís just babbling and itís a coincidence that it sounds like mum. He is super fast at crawling and he is walking around all the furniture constantly. Heís let go a few times and can balance himself but only for a couple of seconds and then he goes back down to crawling. I think heíll be walking in the next month or so. I canít believe how quickly theyíve all grown up!

I also went back to work last month and both me and Zack are finding it hard getting used to it. Bills need to be paid though so I suppose weíll both just need to learn to live with it! X

She's not saying mama much anymore so maybe it was just babbling, but I'm telling myself it was real . She's still a big girl, wearing 18m now, and most of it is torso so she's top heavy.

She's pulling up now and gets really mad if she's not standing. She's not stable enough to stand without holding on and hasn't quite figured out cruising but I think we'll get there soon. Teddy's toys are really motivating. She also has about 1/4 of a tooth! She's a few months ahead of when Teddy got teeth and I figured she'd get them late too but I guess not.

It sounds like Zack is doing great! Almost walking, eek!

18 month clothes?! Wow haha! Zack has only just gone into 9-12 months clothes. I think heís just pretty much average size for his age. Lucy was always the same.

Oh my is that her first tooth coming in?! Zack has 6 already lol! Crazy how things can vary from baby to baby. How is she coping with the pain of teething?

Zack officially took his first couple of steps yesterday!!! 9 months and 1 week old. I keep saying to my husband no wonder I am forever broody, my babies donít like to stay babies for long at all haha! Lucy was 8 months old when she started walking but I know thatís really early so I was expecting Zack to maybe be nearer the year mark as everyone keeps telling me boy are so much slower at learning things than girls but he really hasnít been far behind her at all with everything.

Iíve been feeling reeeeeeeeeally broody the past few weeks! Need to try and suppress it though as we have so much coming up in the next year so right now really isnít the time for another but I know for definite that Iím not finished yet x

Walking?! Oh boy... Val's just started cruising since I last commented and I can't leave her anywhere now. I'm scared of walking, our house is just full of 3 year old toys.

This is her first tooth, it's about 1/4 of the way through I think, but if I try to look she hides it under her tongue. The second isn't breaking through yet as far as I can tell. She hasn't been too miserable with it but her night sleep has sucked lately. Could be teeth, could be Leap 7, could be the 9 month sleep regression, who knows?

Hey ladies hope youíre all well! So good to hear of all our September Ď17 babies almost walking itís crazy isnít it?! Layla is walking and is absolutely everywhere!!! She has a mouth full of 8 pearly whites too. I have just 45 days left until my c section - Iím so nervous. Iím more nervous about having a section then having twins if Iím honest but thereís nothing I can do, they have to come out! Weíre totally ready now Iím so shocked there havenít been any further surprise in this thread actually. Iím obviously the crazy one lol.

Chicago I canít believe Vals in 18m clothes thatís crazy she must be a chunk bless her, big healthy babe.

Sava I think Scarlett still suits Layla and that was a runner up but we also had Ava for a while when I was pregnant with Layla and she doesnít suit that what so ever. Weíve changed our minds a million times with the twins. One is definitely still Esmae but we just canít settle on baby bís name

Well, I forgot to check ingredients yesterday and Valentine had another reaction to egg, so I think it's safe to say she has an allergy. We'll have to go through a bunch of red tape to get it diagnosed but I'm going to be much more vigilant about egg from now on.

Chicago - What kind of reaction do you notice? I've often wondered how I would know if one of my kiddos had an allergy

With Val it's vomiting a couple hours after she eats egg. Dr Google says it's probably a kind of allergy called FPIES, which acts a little differently from the food allergies you usually hear about. A severe reaction can lead to shock but it isn't anaphylactic. Typically you'd want to keep an eye out for breathing problems, rash, vomiting, failure to gain weight, or diarrhea for food allergies. And once they're talking, listen for any unusual complaints - Teddy says kiwi is spicy so we don't feed it to him (I'm similar with fresh pineapple, but I'm not sure if it's allergy or just the acid with either of us).

Latest shenanigans:

Actually running cars back and forth on the floor when she plays with them! Her brother taught her that one.

High fiving!

Beelining out of the living room every time the gate is open.

Lightly leaning on things while standing instead of holding on.

Worming away and sitting up in bed and grinning when I'm trying to nurse her to sleep.

And apparently thinks she's a doggo.

What are all the other babies up to?
