my little blessings I have started the layby for xmas, Mikayla is totally done, but cheyenne still needs a few things, it is her Bithday on the 27/12 so we have to be organised early for xmas/birthday other wise it can get out of hand. I also usually start buying everyone elses gifts from now also, to spread the cost.
this year we are going to Adelaide for xmas. we ulternate with my family and Dh family. we have worked it well with our siblings, cause we are spread all over the country + Korea, we are all at the same our parents the same year then with partners parents the next year. so this year is DH parents. we are going to need to be in SA (we live in Melbourne) for the whole week efore xmas because my niece's are being christened the sunday before xmas. because my little Bro is the Godfather, and he lives in WA. this will be the first time he sees any of his new Nieces (he has 3 born in June 2011).
wow sorry for the essay short answer = yes we are getting organised for xmas. tongue
Declan&Miasmummy - Mikayla has been in her own room since she was 1 week old, we tried her in our room in her portacot, but she would not settle so we would end up with her in our bed, mellow we didn't like this, so we tried her in her own room and we have never looked back. Mikayla is 9 weeks old today and has slept through the last 6 out of 7 nights. grin grin
Claire-bear 77 welcome, I loved my mothers group also. it was a great way to make new friends. although we have split into those who returned to work and those who formed a playgroup (we all started playgroup but 5 of us worked and so had to stop going) we try to organsie weekend get together every 6 months or so, but as I left the area (moved house) I mostly keep touch with a few girls by email.
