Hello my lovelies - it's good to hear how you're all doing!
Life is busy and tiring - but great. Ollie is a wee monkey and keeping us on our toes. He is MUCH more demanding than Sam ever was and I can't believe how hard it is with two!!!!
Our Ollie is a very lazy feeder and has been since day one. He refuses to take a bottle despite all our efforts and is still wee at 11lb 2 oz today - he's 17 weeks. He just doesn't seem to like milk and gets bored very easily!!! He refuses to breast feed front ways so I have to do it under arm - those who are b/feeding can imangine how restricting this is so we're kind of tied to where and when we go out...He's putting on about 4oz a week so I just think he's going to be tall and skinny.
Tried him on very milky baby rice last week to see if that makes a difference... Not to weight, but he likes it and it beats topping him up with a syringe on that feed. I SOOOOOOOOOOOO hope he'll not be fussy on solids and am desperatley trying to keep him on milk for as long as possible but I'm knackered. Feedings great when it goes well, but I'm ready for bottles now!!!!!!!! I'm going to try a cup soon. hahahaha.
Anyway, when he smiles - the whole room lights up and I think we're over the worst... Or so my HV tells me. He's a real mummies boy - quite the opposite from what his brother was - so I'm loving it.
Jo - fantastic to hear wee Ellie is doing so great and her weight sounds fab. You've done well girlie and so has that wee gem of yours. You've had a right time of it and I hope you are seeing light at the end of the tunnel. You wait til she's smiling - everything will melt away. It terms of her lungs - is that to be a lifelong issue - I don't know much about lung problems... Hope you are looking after yourself...
Kareen - You sound great - bet sleeping through the night helps
Oh you, lucky, lucky woman!!!! Your 2 sound like they're fabby - you're doing great too.
Tammy - with you on the difficult front girl! Can't believe you are contemplating the gym - well done. I'm also still in my jammies (11.54am) but hey, I never seem to be out of them. LOL
Heather - good luck with the jabs. Ollie has his last ones next Tuesday. He's miserable after them, so I'm glad it's the last!!
Take care everyone. It hard to find the time these days - I'm going to make more of an effort!!
