    Hey moms! Eddie turned 1 on September 29. We went to Disneyworld and had a great time! We did his birthday party at a pumpkin patch. He is 30 inches and 22 pounds 14 ounces. He hasn't started walking yet, but he's cruising and is a super fast crawler. He has stood on his own a few times (of course not when we had our phones on us to record lol) so I think it's coming soon. He says mama and dada. I think he's saying "yeah" and "do-ee" for doggy. No siblings on the horizon yet lol.

    Happy Halloween! What are you dressing your kiddos as?

    I decided at Luci's first Halloween that I was going to make all her costumes until she wouldn't let me anymore. I had her sushi outfit made weeks in advance.

    This year, I haven't had the time! I woke up this morning, and was like "Crap, Luci doesn't have a costume." And we don't have extra money, so I was like... what can I make with what I have laying around?!

    Took a pair of black undies I never wore because they don't fit and cut them up. Sewed her a headband with kitty ears, embroidered the pink insides by hand, and also cut out and hand sewed a kitty tail. Stuffed it with scrap yarn. Sewed it to a pair of black pants she already had. She didn't have a plain black shirt, so I took a black onesie and just turned it inside out. You can still kind of see the outline of the words through it, but I'm calling it done. I'll make her a little black nose and whiskers with eyeliner when the time comes. #worldsokayestmom :haha:

    We got a brand new unicorn costume for $8 at a popular used kids store in our area and we're going to walk around the neighbourhood looking at the yards (people have done a great job decorating). But no candy, we're keeping the sugar out of her diet until absolutely necessary! Will update with a picture later.

    Long time ladies! Congratulations to all who are pregnant again!

    Little T is a fully fledged walking boy now, well, he actually prefers to run! He has four teeth, says quite a bit (other kids names, mama :cloud9:, dad, cats name, up, no, hey hey, book, bus, kids, ummmm..sure there's more but that's the common words), loves books and playing with his big brothers and sister.

    He loves strawberries and apples most of all but will have a go at eating everything including rocks and bark on the ground:wacko:

    Halloween isn't a really popular thing in Aus but our little neighbourhood has a few houses that decorate so we did a walk around the block this year. T was superman, biggest boy was Dracula, little girl was a skeleton and little boy was a teenage mutant ninja turtle, all costumes out of our dress up box! They were super cute!

    For harvest festival I dressed baby girl in an orange & green pumpkin princess dress. We went to a trunk or treat, and then mommy got to eat all her candy!!
    She was sick for the first time in her life on Thanksgiving, so that really blew.
    I've got her reindeer antlers and bells for her feet to wear this Christmas. So excited!

    Hi ladies, is anyone getting holiday photos done? We just had a little mini-session special offer from our lady who did our mat & newborn shots. We had a mini package with grandma, dad, DD and myself with the twin bump. Was lots of fun and MacKinley loved the sparkly fake snow. I hope you're all getting ready to enjoy the holidays. Any trips to see Santa this year?

    Cute!

    We don't do anything with Santa or trees in our house, so no trips to Santa for us. Well... I guess that might not be completely true, since hubs's company is doing a kid's holiday party where they're having a Santa and giving the kids presents, and we didn't want Lucina to be left out. So we're going to that. I'm making yummy magic custard cake for it. Mmmmm.

    Cute photo!

    T isn't a fan of santa! He isn't really a fan of strangers in general (never has been a baby to just go to anyone) and my three year old freaked out too so no santa meet and greet photos here. We LOVE Christmas though so we are really looking forward to it & celebrating.

    Sorry to hear that. When by 8 months my cycle hadn't come back regularly we went straight to ivf. I wanted our children to be very very close in age. I wish you all the best:dust:
    Have you tried the cbefm?

    I got mine used off ebay, sterilized it, reset it and it works brilliantly. I needed to be ultra frugal as we did 6 ivf's and immune testing before we got a natural. DH used to get super excited when the big "O" lit up, he'd ask if he needed to come home from work to get started:haha:

    It made understanding cycles quite easy, it shows bars as your hormone levels rise and counts the days for you.

    Hi all.

    I'm sorry I dropped off the face of the earth! It's been a very long haul for us with lots of ups and downs. I can't remember if I have ever posted here since he was born! Long story short, when wee man was born we noticed his right ear looked a little different, turns out he has Microtia Atresia - so his outset ear didn't form correctly and internally he is missing an ear canal - leaving him totally Deaf in his right ear. As well as that she has had a lot of troubles with his chest, his airway was underdeveloped and they are thinking he will have lifelong issues with asthma. He is also a midget �� 17 months and only 9kg! Can still fit 6 month clothing he is such a shorty! So the paediatrician is also monitoring closely for that. We have had over a dozen hospital admissions in his first year alone! In saying that - he is walking, signing and still the happiest lil man you could imagine! I hope you all are well!

    I know we don't check this very often. Last post was January! How is everyone? How are your littles? Anyone have siblings yet?

    We don't plan on trying for a couple years yet. Eddie is amazing. He's quite a troublemaker but he is super sweet and smart. We have had some health issues with him - chronic ear infections, chronic croup, and some seizures. He is constantly sick :(. We are so happy with him though!

    Pics!!!

    I am very happily done with our four. Feeling too old and ready to move on to the next stage, looking forward to potty training and T growing up. He is our worst sleeper (by far!), very clingy and extremely adorable which is his saving grace haha! I'm looking forward to finally going back to work and being a real person, this SAHM gig is well and truly stale for me.

    Congrats to those expecting again!

    We think we will be having a second, but not sure when. I just got a 3 month refill on BCP, so at least that long :haha:

    When Lucina was born, the doctor told me I had a heart-shaped uterus during the c-section. I just had an HSG done last month, and... nope. It is normal. Turns out some doctors will lie to you about it to scare you out of trying for a VBAC. Luckily I've moved (we built a new house in another state), and Im now very close to an amazing hospital and doctor.
