In all my excitement over Mr Hands coming home and name suggestions for Snow, I forgot to tell you our news. We have teeth! On tuesday I noticed two broken skin bits on F's gums. The next day one toothy peg appeared and I think the second was on Thursday morning. Just like buses you wait ages and then two come along at once! Also to be even more pickly the teeth broke through on the inside first, so you can only see them if he's crying over something. He spends a lot of time feeling them with his tongue so you can't see them! He only showed his daddy last night. OH didnt even get to see the broken gum patches as he wouldn't show him! We had a terrible night's sleep Monday. OH even worked from home because he was so tired, but apart from that he's coped pretty well. He's needed medicine and bonjela a bit, but we've had weeks when he's been far fussier about them.
Congrats on finding a nursery Bex. We put F down when he was 7 wks old. I'm going to see another nursery in a few weeks in case it doesn't work out at the nursery we've picked but I'm pretty happy with it. Im still unsure about when I will go back. Really hoping that I can last to June, but the house is so expensive and we still have a lot more to do to it.
Teefers for Mr. Pickle! Cute! Hope he's showing off those pearly whites now! What an awesome milestone!
Awe Bex hope the nursery search is going well. So you want to start TTC soon??!! After baby boy we are going to NTNP as soon as they say we can BD again considering how long it took for this one.
P.S. Crib is assembled and dressers are in the room! Gotta still pick up glider - I can't wait to see it as we had it done in custom fabric. Also, need to go and pick out nick nacks, curtains, curtain rod and things to put on wall. Such a work in progress!
Woop woop for a big strong dexter!! mr hands must be very proud of you both!
Snow - I suppose at the moment you could say we are NTNP, but we have only DTD twice since LO was born so I'm not sure that counts ahahahah! But yeah I want to ttc again soon. I think I would like an age gap of 18 months /2 years!
Nic - teeth!! Very very exciting! Don't they grow up so quickly!!
They really do Bex! He's come on so much in the last 10 days. He's started to do his own version of crawling which is moving around on his tummy propelling himself with his hands. Kind of gliding. If he wants something straight in front of him, then he pushes his bottom up and digs his toes in like he's mountain climbing. He's also soooo chatty. It sounds a bit like he's saying mamamaaa. I'm not convinced enough to say he's saying mama but he's definitely trying to say something!
You girls are so brave about NTNP. I think that's the approach we'll go when we are ready, but right now I'm grateful for BCP. I know where I am and don't have to think about things so much. I'm also lighter on BCP as odd as that might sound. I've also decided February is the month to shape up. On the 1st March I'm going out with the NCT girls to celebrate our babies being 'Longer out than in!'. I'm hoping to pop on one of my pre-Finlay dresses and hopefully not look wobbly in it!
Great results Hands! How are you finding looking after Dex with hubby being home? Are you in a good routine? How are your nights? Are you still exercising?
No need to exercise anymore. Im back to my highschool body minus the stretch mark scars. Hubby saw how distress i was due to night feedings and he said he would take them on from now on. We arent in a solid state routine with him coming, working different times, and with the move just a few weeks away... but things are so much easier!
Congrats to Finlay and his glide!!!! It's so exciting to see them moving. So jealous of his mamamammaaas... all mine does is shriek lol He's a Dexosaurus
Yesterday my best friend had her little baby...I say little, he was 10lb 14oz..ouch!! I was on babysitting duty for the almost 2 year old. My first taste of looking after a baby and a toddler at the same time. It was hard work but lots of fun. I was just please OH was home to help with bath and bedtime. I couldn't work out how to do that on your own!
Has confirmed that I defintiely want 2 close in a age though. We had a lovely moment when we were all on the bed, OH was reading a story to my friends son and I was breast feeding Elliot. Very cosy
That sounds lovely Bex. Ouch though for your friend! I think Finlay weighed that around 2mths!
We also have a new arrival to announce. My sister had her baby yesterday evening - Lily Marie. Her labour was not the quick water birth she was hoping for and it all sounds a bit hairy, but lo is very cute. She was 7lb 8oz but feels like youre holding air. Maybe that's because Finlay is three times her weight. He was lovely with her. He was stroking her arm and when she cried he looked all round the room for her.
We now have a teeth shot so I'll post one when we're on the pc. He is also commando crawling now and today he almost pulled himself up. Eek! Unfortunately for him he pulled himself up with the walker and as he got to the point of locking his knees to stand up straight, the walker started to move and he fell. He can't sit up from laying flat on his back, but he can get himself to standing. Go figure!
Bex Congrats to your friend! And how exciting that you will be trying again soon. Maybe this thread will always have someone pregnant on it .. who knows!
Nic- Standing! How exciting. Can't wait to see the toother picture! Poor little guy will have to learn to pull up on more stable pieces of furniture. That was sweet how he wanted to take care of the little baby. Maybe he'll be a really good big brother some day!
As for Dex... we hit another Major milestone yesterday. Crawling with belly off the ground. YAY!!! He has found all sorts of new things now. Door stops (the springs) is probably his favorite new find! <--haha. The best part was both hubby and i were home to see it. awwwww. He still hasnt learned how to make Ma, Da, Ba, Ga sounds though. He does so well when it comes to gross and fine motor skills, but he seems to have a hard time keeping up with the verbal. I want to hear a DADADADa come out of him so bad.
