Solids are going great. She is having 3 meals a day, along with 3-4 bottles of Milk a day. Ive pretty much introduced all fruits, She now has tropical and mix fruit flavours. Veggies, she loves Sweet potato, butternut, peas, beetroot. Carrots give her cramps, so we will leave that for now. I am introducing a lot of new veggies now. She also eats Chicken & beef on occasion. There really isnt much introducing left..

DH surprised me with a nice lunch, and we left L to have a picnic with her grandparents. He really made it special for me.

She is on formula only, for about 2 months now. And since she started eating 3 meals, she is growing A LOT.

The nanny is great. I wouldnt say its common, but a lot of parents here do prefer nanny's. Its a lot more expensive, but no way she is going back to that horrible school.

How is William doing on solids? Except for all the allergies. I am so glad you got to see a pead, honestly, GPs have no knowledge of babies whatsoever. Im glad its easier to get to a pead quickly here, I can phone today, and have an appointment today still.

And then...Another month has gone - and I am not pregnant. Not surprised (but you know...deep inside you cant help but hope) Atleast my cycle was a little bit shorter this month. Last month was 37 days, this month was 33 days. Hoping to go back to 28-30 day cycles. Cant help to think these are annovulatory cycles

Nita and Sarah, you are so right. We introduced a slow flow Kiinde bottle as a test case about a week ago to make sure she would take to it, and she sucked it right down. I won't go back to work until 12 weeks, but I did start coaching again this week, so I do spend a couple hours a day away from her. We wanted to make sure my mom has an option to feed her in case she gets hungry before I make it home.

Sarah, my aunt is so amazing, now the only problem is I think baby girl is getting spoiled being held all the time, lol! But she has been so incredible. She comes back in the afternoon so I can shower, brings us dinner from time to time, and so much more. We are very lucky! Baby girl will be 4 weeks on Monday!

Lucy, keep on giving the bottle, even just if its once a day. You will thank me when you go back to work. I am glad she is taking it though, its a good sign.

Your aunt sounds so amazing. Wish I had someone like that. While breastfeeding I did pretty much everything myself. DH has learned in the meanwhille to care for her, so I can go out and leave her with him - she absolutely loves and adores her father so much.

Cant believe she is almost 4 weeks, wow. Do you have the wonder weeks app? I can really recommend it. did you get a real smile from her yet?

Wow I realize your post is old at this point Nita, but sounds like things are going great!

Our little one is now 6 weeks old. She and I are both doing well. Got a minor case of thrush we are having trouble kicking, but otherwise can't complain.

Hope the rest of you are well!

I hope everyone is well? Lucy, your LO is growing uo so quickly...

Fluffy, I really hope you had your baby by now??

Sarah, I will take it that no news is good news hope you are well.

Update from my side: Liezl is doing well, growing up too quickly now, almost crawling now. Eating well, drinking well, the nanny is great with her, so we really are well.
DH and I decided to stop trying for a baby (not having success anyway, AF showed today, and my cycles are really long, anything from 33 - 37 days) so we are going to be careful, and try again next year. So I devided to go on a weightloss journey, not going to share much on here, but you are welcome to check out my fitness journey. Working on getting healthy and lose weight, I know this will help us get pregnant when we try again next year.

Hey Nita! I will follow you! Glad all is well!

Hope you are well Sarah and Fluffy and Lucy!

Life is really busy here with the boys and we sold our house, renovated another, and moved with three boys!!!!! Ford is good. A little behind on motor skills in my opinion. 8 months old today!

Good to hear from you ttc! Sounds like you have been reaaaally busy.

Why do you say Ford is a little behind?

Lol Nita! My number one tip for moving with kids is....DONT!

And I can just tell heís behind. Itís a mom instinct. Heís taking after my oldest who needed physical therapy at age two for his motor development. Iíll bring it up at his pediatrician appointment next month. But heís nowhere near crawling, still a very wobbly sitter, he rolls but otherwise still mostly content to lay there and play.

oh ttc - I get what you mean! I often wonder about Liezl, is she on track, is she doing what she is supposed to do. But I heard that boys can be a little lazy sometimes? haha

Liezl rolls, very stable sitter, goes into crawl position from sitting and starts kicking her legs, like she knows how, but she is just net ready yet. The nurse at the hospital said they should be crawling around 9 months??? So I hope by the next visit she is haha.

Liezl sounds perfectly on track!!! Boys can definitely be lazy so itís tough to know when to actually be concerned... Iíll give him more time!

Does Liezl have teeth? Ford has zero teeth still!
