Rose - so glad you had a good holiday! How were the flights back and forth? I hardly use a stroller at all with mine. We're going to Ireland in June and I'll just bring a carrier or two. Very nervous about the flights with Jack, plus the car ride from Dublin to my DH's home town (2.5 hours away).

At least Alice sleeps well when she's with you! I've bedshared with Jack from the start. He still doesn't sleep very well. Fitful for the first couple hours and then still wakes every two hours the rest of the night. Still, my DD was worse by this time - she woke every sleep cycle for boob - that lasted many many months!

Good luck with starting food for Alice. Jack's only 4 months yesterday, so not there yet with him. I'll wait until six months. Interested to see if he takes to it quicker than my DD - she was nearly a year before she took much interest.

Velathria - that's awesome you've stopped bleeding and you're feeling kicks! Do you have a preference for boy or girl? Sorry to hear about your grandpa. Hope you can enjoy your parents' visit.

AFM - Been back at work for over a month now and it's going fine. We've all been a bit sick the last week though. Jack is mostly fine, just coughing a bit.

My BF is getting married this weekend, so that's exciting.

Jack is over 16 lbs now. Quite the chunk compared to my DD - she was a small thing. I've had a couple weeks of him pooping during the night after a long stretch of him not doing that. I think some supplements I was taking caused it, and they are still working their way out of his system. REALLY ready for him to completely be over it, cause changing poopy diapers at 3am is NOT FUN.

The flights were actually ok, both kids were really good we were lucky nappy changes were a bit of a nightmare due to the lack of space but thankfully I only had to deal with one dirty one! To be honest I found the car journeys worse (Alice decided she hated the hire car and screamed every time we put her in it, unless I sat in the back between the kids) as I could cuddle her on the plane and feed her so she was happy. Are you in Ireland now? Hope you have a fantastic time!

Alice is almost 6 months old now, I can't believe it. She's taking to weaning so well and is now having 3 small meals a day plus all her usual milk feeds (we don't really have set feeds as I just feed her whenever she wants. Which is often ha). She's almost sitting unsupported just flops occasionally, and can support her weight on her legs for a few seconds too before she topples over.

I'm sorting out childcare for my return to work which is extremely depressing ;( why does it have to go so fast?!

Vel you're over half way through amazing! When do you find out if it's a boy or girl?

Velathria - congrats on the boy!! And do glad the bleeding has stopped and you can enjoy the pregnancy now instead of worrying all the time.

Rose - time is flying - can't believe Alice is almost 6 months. When do you go back to work? Have you sorted child care?

AFM - we have been back from our Ireland trip for a week now. It was an awesome trip, and hard to leave. Both kids were good on the flights. Honestly DD was an angel, and Jack only fussed a bit when needing naps. So thankful. The car ride from Dublin to DH's town was a bit hairy, but the return trip was absolutely fine. DD ran herself ragged playing with her cousins. Now DH wants to move back. I can see the draw of all the family support (we have very little of that here), but it would be such a massive decision, and a huge change to our way of life. So I am not that keen on the thought. Have to talk about it I guess. We'd both be facing huge reductions in income and probably some very crappy jobs, if they could be found at all.

Jack got his first tooth while we were there! Haven't started solids yet. Maybe in another month. He is 17 lbs now. Sometimes does little planks on the floor, but isn't mobile yet, and can't sit. Sleep is still crap, but I'm managing.

Looking for a new job myself. I am bored at work and have nothing to do most of the time.

Jack starts daycare next week, just three days a week, and the other two at home with DH still. DH is excited about the opportunity to get things done around the house on his days off, but I'm sad about Jack going to someone else so young.

Hey girls ^^ so coming up to 24 weeks ^^ i am so ready to have this little guy out xD got physio prescribed because I'm in so much pain. Can't sleep at night at all. And he seems to be laying really low so all the weight is pushing down.

We have a name already ^^ it's Timothy. Named after my father ^^ he is such a proud grandpa

Also great news. We are moving into a bigger place and it's so much nicer can't wait to set everything up.

It's crazy how far along your little ones are already.. time goes by so fast. Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying their babys. In a few months I'll be able to join in ^^

Slammerkin I am due to go back in September, I too feel sad about Alice going to someone else when she's so young DS was always with my mum until he was 18 months so this is a new experience for me. I have a childminder lined up who I like, but I am just trying to negotiate hours with work so I need to get that sorted then I can confirm with her. She's actually really nice and Alice even had a nap on her when we visited but I still feel sad and guilty that I can't be with her all the time, especially as she's so clingy I am trying to find a new job too because I'm fed up of the long drive to work, and also my boss is being difficult with hours. I had an interview the other week so hoping to hear soon. It is the perfect location and hours so I am keeping everything crossed!!

Glad you had an amazing holiday. My husband wants to move to Canada but we don't know anyone there so it would be a bit lonely not to mention complicated with visas etc plus my mum wouldn't be thrilled if we left. Good luck with whatever you decide.

Alice was doing well with solids but she has 4 (!!!) teeth coming through at the same time so I think that's putting her off - she hasn't really eaten much all week.

DS had chickenpox last week so I'm just waiting for Alice to catch it I'm actually quite nervous about it as I know someone whose baby died from chickenpox recently, even though he was younger and smaller than Alice it still makes me very worried.

Vel sorry you're in pain I know how that feels, it's crappy. Great news that you've picked a lovely name and are moving in to a bigger home our own extension should be ready to use as a temporary room soon until we have saved up for the next bit (digging up the whole floor for underfloor heating in the kitchen nightmare) so will be nice to have a bit more space

Well, Alice has now caught chicken pox. She has it so much worse than DS and has been so upset, grumpy and itchy. She has them mostly on her face, neck, scalp and nappy area she also has a high temperature and is off all food apart from my milk - she's been breastfeeding pretty much Constantly since about 4am this morning.

Oh, rose, I am so sorry. It must be so hard on poor Alice. At least you have the boob to offer. I'm sure that is comforting to her. I hope she gets better quickly!!

Canada would be a big move alright! I know some Irish people that moved there and love it.

I hope you get a new job you like. And I hope Alice does well in childcare. It really does such sending them earlier than you want.

Velathria - I hope your pain is getting better!
