That's great that Darcy blows kisses and waves. Jack will only clap. I've tried teaching him how to wave, but he just flaps his arms like a lunatic!! Ha!
Thanksgiving comes from when the pilgrims harvested food and shared it with the Native Americans and gave thanks for their blessings. (Or something to that effect). It's hard to remember now. Basically, it's a time for family/friends to get together and be thankful for our blessings. Christmas is def a bigger holiday in my opinion. But we don't have a very large family either. I imagine it really depends on each family and their preferences. Oh and Thanksgiving is always the 3rd Thursday in November, so it will be next Thursday.
No thanksgiving isn't celebrated here. It's all about Christmas lol. I've seen thanksgiving on tv (friends haha) and films but have to say I dont know much about it. What will those who do celebrate it be doing this year? Getting so so excited for Xmas, oh took Erin shopping this afternoon so I could have a nap and he came home with advent calendars for me and Erin! Was quite surprised, he got Erin a Winnie the pooh one as she LOVES the heffalump movie (no idea what it is but she is glued to the screen if we put that on). Think he'll be eating her chocs but its the thought that counts. Also feeling quote organised on the shopping front, know what Im getting most people and have got quite a few bits already. It's my oh I hate buying for which sounds horrid but he is so hard. He buys himself pretty much what he wants through the year like New Xbox games, tools, electronics. He doesn't really like clothes for presents although I usually get him a hoody or something but will be getting some in oz as theyre cheaper. Everything he does want is massive like a new tv for our room theres one he's seen but its 350 pounds. As I'm not earning atm, its his money. Think were going to have to have a discussion to see what he wants to do for a present!
My sisters counselling went really well, I'm sooooo pleased. She was quite negative about going but I told her to keep an open mind and was praying it would go well. She has 5 more sessions all before Xmas.
Very cute on the babies giving kisses, can't wait for that! We haven't started planning Erins party yet but will need to before I go to oz as her birthday is only 4 days after we get back. I think we'll just invite family and friends to our house although our lounge is also pretty small. I hadn't thought about themes but am going to make her cake. Hmmm need to get thinking! (love the Dr Seuss idea)
I def am a bit nervous.. I was before i started ttc for bryce too.. but i do want my last one to be closer in age to bryce and i want to be done.. so i can move on to raising them all and life ahead.. Def am excited and nervous.. we will see..
Christmas is way bigger here.. I love love love it.. LoL lady i was thinking of doing the cat in the hat..
Hi girls.... Slightly back to the land of the living!!! Haven't gad a chance to digest recent goss... But glad everyone is well!!
Was back at the docs today and he continued to lecture me even though I'm down to 5 a day! Ah well I'll try not to go back to him for a while!! Any who the chest is still wheezy but much better!
Conor doesn't blow kisses yet but he has started to point at things which I thought was amazing!! I bought his first proper shoes today..... 32 pounds!!! And slippers for 12 pound outta Clarks shoes v. Expensive for a few months wear!!
Dreamer glad your sis is getting on well and the counselling is helping....
Lil... Can't believe your gong to have another one!!! I find the thought of 2 daunting never mind 3!!!!!
I can't remember whether I said, but Erin is now crawling, she was pretty much there about a week ago, but in the past few days has really cracked it and is starting to get so fast. Can't leave her now shes truely into everything! So cute seeing them crawling.
How are you doing hispirits? Feeling ok? Did you say if you will find out the gender at your 20 week scan or not.
Way to go Conor!! Hopefully the good nights' sleep will continue for the both of you! Glad you're doing better Trixie.
Hooray for crawling Erin!! It truly is fun watching them get mobile. Although, very tiring for us mommies!!
I think I may have mentioned about applying for the labor and delivery position opening at the hospital. Well, I went for it!! Sent in my application last Friday, and now the nurse manager wants me to come shadow for a day (which will be tomorrow) to be sure it'd be something I'm interested in doing. So wish me luck for tomorrow!! I had to tell my boss that I was applying. It's company policy if it's considered a transfer. That was so scary, but she was actually very supportive. And said that she would hate to lose me, but wouldn't hold me back if it's something I really wanted to do. So that was a relief. It still is probably a very slim chance I'll actually get the job, since they like for you to have experience in labor and delivery. (But how are you supposed to have experience without starting new at some point or another?). I just hope they see me as a good fit and that I am a quick learner. I would love to be a labor and delivery nurse!!
Dreamer as soon as I can I'm finding out what it is. I can't wait. Next scan is a week tomorrow, but my friend said the nhs won't tell you what it is before 20 weeks? Not sure if that is just her experience or wether its the same everywhere. Xx
Lovely avatar Hispirit, ooh I wonder what your having? I think they try to put off giving out the sex till 20 weeks because it is more acurate the later they do it?
Lady, I wish you all the best for tomorrow and hope you get the job. I would LOVE to do that. I actually nearly trained as a midwife. I have a dental qualification which counts as a first years midwife training, so I could train and qualifie a bit quicker because Im qualified in the anatomy side of things...weird I know! But I think I've left it a bit too late now, I would love to have done it though.
Dreamer and Trixie, well done to you LO's, has it continued?? I do hope so, everything is so much easier when you've slept. Also well done on cutting down on smoking Trixie, it must be very hard, esp if you're stressed.
Great news Dreamer the Erin is on the move, Darcey is a well. I love seeing her crawl around and hearing the excitment in her voice the closer she gets to what she wants...usually the cat!
Who was it that was asking about the sippy cups? I also have this problem with Darcey, she has more fun shaking the water out of them :/ I have given up for a while, I really should keep trying. Anyone with any tips on getting her used to it?
