Poor Ethan, didn't realise he had problems walking, maybe he needs some of those special boot things but hopefully the doc can sort it out soon. I haven't started potty training yet, keep meaning to but am waiting until it is raining all the time and I don't want to go out!
Sophie is having a really clingy time. Maybe for about a week she literally will not be happy to do anything except eat or stand up (supported by us obviously). She is driving me mad now! Poor Oliver doesn't get a look in. We are going to see the inlaws this weekend so at least someone else can entertain her for awhile!
Weighed her on my mums scales the other day and I think she's about 18lb which means she has jumped from the 25th line to the 50th! Greedy pig! She is loving food though so not suprised! And still sleeping through which is amazing!
Dh is off work this week after his exam and so I am going to try and sneak out to do some shopping as I want something new to wear for tomorrow night when we go out with his brothers and their g/friends. We are the only ones with kids but I have no idea what's in fashion! Help!
Have a good day girls xx

Had a fab time - we all saw lots n issybum was very good driving there etc. but had mare of a time sum days with her which turned out as 2 more top teeth!!! So 6 now
Weve had most mornings starting at 5 6,7 am varies - i want my 8am back!!! She was off her food too but wondered if it was pain or sick of pouch food - shes happy eating my warm home made stuff lol
Shes standing really well with a bit of hands on her side to stop her falling sideways. N is pulling herself onto all fours to crawl but zero crawls got a letter for her review on 24th i think it is - hope they say shes ok!!
Hows my girls? All ok ?

Helloooooo! Glad you had such a good time, shame the teeth had to make an appearance though.
She is doing really well, by 24th she will probably be crawling anyway and if not it doesn't mean anything lots of babies don't crawl at all. Getting up onto all fours is the hard bit she just needs to work out how to coordinate her hands and feet and she will be off!
Sophie still only has two teeth... Thought we might be getting more but no, another false alarm! She is crawling slowly after quite a while of army crawling. She can't pull herself up yet, only onto her knees but she does like standing up. I would love her to be toddling by Christmas but think it might be too soon.
For the first time ever we have had major issues with the clocks going back. Since they changed both kids have been awake at 5am (I'm lying in bed typing this now!) but my mums been here so has been getting them up for me to give me a little more sleep (my mum rocks!) but especially Oli had been so touchy I've said they can both stay in their rooms until 6:30 this morning! Oli has had a little tantrum and quietened down and I've just heard Sophie... 5:45am still not acceptable! I miss my 7am wake ups... Bloomin' clocks!
Are you two going to find a Christmas outfit to dress the girls up in? I've seen a little fairy outfit in Sainsburys which was cute but kind of forgot to buy it! On Oliver's first Christmas we dressed him as an elf, he looked so adorable!
I am going to attempt potty training with Oli this week... Little bit scared as I know he isn't bothered about being wet at all and I've asked him if he wants to try and use the potty and he just shouts no! I'm hoping the thrill of wearing Spider-Man pants will do the trick! Eek!
Closing date for the job was yesterday so have everything crossed!
Hope your holiday blues aren't too bad Claire, piccys please! x

i"m good..never get 2 minutes to myself at the min lol
the clocks threw her routine out so had to re-adjust her
we still have only 2 teeth hehehe
her gums are bulging but nothing yet
shes such hard work at the min....she crawls over to anything she can climb up on to stand up and then she just lets go!!!!!
i"m trying to teach her to sit back on her bum when she falls down
shes just started to walk with one hand so i dont think it will be long before shes walking....she just looks to small to walk
she keeps taking a couple of steps but she wont do anymore lol
i really wouldnt worry about issy crawling hun
out of all my tribe lol only Ethan and Elise crawled the rest walked 1st
they are all so different

Birthday was lovely thanks - had great few days really
Wet floors better than wet sofas think on the brightside hehe - dont blame u hun. Just try on n off.
Clever Elise - please post video so we can use as training lol
Good luck for next week - keep us posted!
Mum n dad got issybum a wooden walker thing yesterday for xmas - she will just pull it over n wack herself im sure - it wont help her walk lol
I cant believe how quick these 10 months nearly have gone - let alone this time last year when i was still buying baby baths lol

How old was Ethan when he cracked the toilet problems? And how did you do it? Please give me tips! It's starting to drive me insane! How often were you putting him on and how long were you making him stay on etc?
Hope the Physio goes well, let us know how he gets on.
Soph is good thanks, been so clingy and miserable the past couple of weeks but seems a bit better the past day or so probably because she's been sleeping until nearly 7. Still only two teeth but I'm sure they are in there somewhere. She's crawling properly nearly all the time and can finally go from crawling to sitting. Her big bottom has been stopping her I think! Got her 9-12 month check on the 19th, hope they won't mind me taking Oliver as not got a choice. Will have to take loads of snacks with me to keep him quiet...
Claire - we had wet sofas... Thank God for leather ones that are wipe clean!
Oliver learned to walk by using one of those vtech ones which I've got out for Sophie but she's not bothered yet. Also appears to dislike all her baby toys, only interested in Oli's toys or the remote control
Both kids asleep at the mo, should be doing something productive but instead I'm in my pj's watching last nights strictly! Bad housewife haha! X
