I will go up quietly and check on her in a few minutes, I think I will try to get her to bed at 7.45 tomorrow. Fingers crossed that she will sleep right through tonight, I'm feeling a bit weary tonigh...

Ellies naps are a bit sporadic, but usually around 11am for 1 hour and around 2pm. But sometimes, she just won't sleep at all during the day and other times she will just have one sleep for 2 1/2 hours. Normally she would go to bed at 8pm, but recently it has ended up being 10.30-11pm with her fight...

Yes Kipatte, Ellie has so much hair and has had it cut once already, it is a bit of a nightmare to get the tangles out of it in the morning without screams, but once it is done the curls are just so cute....the downside is, although Ellie is still small for her age people tend to think she is a lot ...

Well it was Elllies birthday just over 2 weeks ago and I am only just recovering now! We had a BBQ and decorated the garden with pink and purple bunting and loads of paper butterflies and windchimes.

My favourite thing for Ellie was a swing, she is still using it now at nearly 12 months, and keeps her quite content while I am cooking or working in the kitchen

A changing box for all nappies, nail scissors, comb, thermometor etc etc
Again the bumbo was also great

Carolinagirl: Just ignore them!!! Totally! I had a lady tell me a few weeks ago that Ellie would be dyslexic because she hadn't crawled...what a load of bol***ks! Ellie only stated to crawl a few days before 10 months...they are all so different in what they do. Ellie still won't say mama, although ...

Hayley, I think...but not totally sure....that you can opt for separate vaccinations, but I think they are not available on NHS and would have to pay for them...BUT I could be totally wrong so the best thing would be to have a chat with your health visitor Mandy x p.s one thing that DOES confuse me,...

I think its great to have opposing views on the imms subject, I know I am somewhere in the middle of the debate and can pick up bits from both sides of the argument. Even IF there is a risk I personally think its worth it.... and I certainly respect decisions either for or against..but the arguments...
