I noticed that we didn't have anywhere that we could really brag about our Lo's, so I thought I would start one since I'm so proud of my little princess for sleeping so well these past few days. I never thought I would be one of those parents who did this, but stuff it i want to yell it from the roof tops of just how perfect she is.
So what new things have your lo's done lately or not done that you want to tell everyone about.

Yea son1!  a big congrats to you.  I know how much you've been struggling with the settling and sleep issues.  On your topic, Hubby was chatting to his parents today and had little miss on Skype as parents are in US and his mom always says how advanced little miss is, this is in jest and a family joke that cracks us up every time - she was but lying on her play mat and giggling and smiling whilst flailing about - so advanced ;-)
Have a great weekend - and a great nights sleep tonight

Smily babies are great maddie is doing the same and I can't help but laugh when she is meant to be sleeping but instead decides to coo to herself. This I think is a fun time.

Son1stmum. Congrats, I know how you feel. Superbaby is still asleep and it is 8.17 am! Rejoicing! Last feed at 10pm

She definitely knows who I am now as I get the biggest smiles, poor DH.

Adding a toddler brag, I am so proud of how my DS3 has taken to having a little sister, he is so protective and likes to take charge - I think you have to feed/change/pick up MY sister

Ds has found his feet and is so overjoyed every time he finds them again -  snorts in happiness and wonder (they are mine, really???!!!) it is hilarious to listen to. My dd should also get an honorable mention for being a non-jealous protective big sister.

I thought I'd have way more problems with her after such a long time as an only but she's been a joy with him.
