Hey everyone! I see the last post was from last month so I am not sure if anyone is still chatting here but here goes nothing! I know i have been gone for quite some time. I don't really have a reason for it to be honest. I guess I just filled my days with other things and now that my almost 9 month old (holy crap) is crawling it's really impossible to even think about computers until both kids are in bed. I must have missed sooooo much. Velathria I am so excited to see you are doing well with the pregnancy! And that it's a boy! I think we all had boys except rose! I never really got to congratulate you so CONGRATULATIONS! such amazing news i hope that you get to continue to have an enjoyable pregnancy =D how is everyone doing? I don't really have all that much new with me. Rose im sorry to hear about the babies both having chicken pox...i hope that it's over by now. I forget how long it usually lasts for but at least now they've gotten it and you won't have to worry about it in the future. Slammerkin im glad you had a great trip to ireland and that the babies were good on the plane! my husband is so terrified of bringing ours onto a plane. not that we have that bad of kids but yanno...sometimes they all have their moments and he doesn't want one of those moments to be on a plane lol. so vacationing will have to wait unless we can drive there. I can't believe it's september already...next week officially starts fall. I don't want to give up summer yet. I didn't even get to go down the shore this year! But i am looking forward to decorating for the holidays. I'm thinking my 3 year old will be very excited about that...she will understand what is going on. And I think zach who will be 1 by christmas will just want to pull the tree down. but we shall see. anyway I hope everyone is doing well and I hope to catch up with what everyone has been up to soon! talk to you all later!

Hey shaele ^^ little boy is doing great. I'm almost at the end. So ready to have him out and to hold him.

We picked a name and it's Timothy. Named him after my father. Who is super proud to have another grandson.

Have some news with my older son. We finally got an appointment with the special needs assessment and they now told us that he is showing high rates of being on the autism spectrum. It was a shock at first but I have realised now as I read about it and watch him closely that it all fits. So we are in the middle of adjusting things for him and also with the school. Everything seems to be going much better with him now that we know. He is still looking forward to his new little brother so we'll see how that goes when he is born. How was it for all of you with the older children? I'm worried that he will regress after Timmy is born. And that he will lash out at him. It's crazy how time flies.. can't believe I'm already at that end. Although it seems like these last few weeks are thath3heseaking forever

Hi Velathria! That's great you have a name picked out already. We had a lot trouble deciding on a name especially for a boy. We both did not like the ones we each picked out. Obviously we finally found one we both enjoyed but I had to compromise on the spelling. I preferred Zackary but husband preferred Zachary. He won just because I didn't want any of the other names he suggested lol!

Interesting news about your older son. I can imagine feeling shock at first because that's just him to you. Like I mean that's what you've gotten used to and that's just his normal and your normal in what you expect. And that part of it will stay the same...which kind of makes it easier I think. I'm glad he's very excited to meet his brother! As far as how kids react to new siblings I think they are all different. From my experience I definitely noticed a negative change in her behavior. While lydia loves zach she also is showing signs of jealousy. She's pretty independent for her age but when he came into the picture she started wanting the same KIND of attention as we gave him. As in she wanted diapers again even though we were in the middle of successfully potty training. She wanted bottles and to be held. Whenever zach goes to play with her old toys she forgot existed she would take them away from him and put them out of his reach. She started doing things she isn't suppose to do in order to get attention. Granted some of this my be due to lack of giving her the attention she required back but as an only child myself I had no idea how any of this worked. I never had to share my parents affection so i didn't even know how to show the correct way of dealing and be a proper role model. We are all learning =) I know it's just a phase. She's also at the age of pushing and testing her limits. She's getting better though! I hope that it all works out better for your family. Like i said it's allllll different for everyone. And now zach is whining so I must dash. talk soon!

Me and dh couldnt decide on a name either until he had the idea to name him after my father and I loved it. Only problem now is him picking a godfather xD I have the godmother picked already. Coming up to 35 weeks now.. cannot wait for this to end xD it's funny how we try so hard to get pregnant and can't wait to be and then when we are we can't wait to be done with pregnancy

Yeah we are seeing a lot of specialist's now about my son but I am kind of glad that we found out. It explains a lot and I am able to handle his melt downs much better now and when he can't deal with something.

I know that Elijah (older son) will probably be very jealous of Timothy because of his close connection to me and also he had been alone now for 5 years so that's a long time.

My biggest worry is that all the accomplishment with bedtime and going to the toilette will regress and we'll have to redo all of it.
I know at one point he will see the positive of it but I think at the beginning it will be a bit hard on him. Having to share mom''s affection.

Cannot wait for these 5 weeks to be over. I am in so much pain. Stupid pelvic girdle pain. It's the worst... I can barely do anything without being in agony. And i am having loads of painful braxton hicks contractions.

Who ever said being pregnant is great.. clearly hasn't been pregnant lol
