Hi everyone!
We have been really slack or just incredibly busy with our toddlers.

DS is doing so well, he is very active and has just discovered running so now he just runs everywhere, its so funny. I am really enjoying DS at this age 15 months, he is so much fun to be around, I love his laugh, the way he talks and his cheeky nature.

My DS is a really bad eater, he is super fussy, what sort of things does you DS/D have for lunch and dinner?
I am need for some new meal ideas!

Hope everyone is doing well!

JTM - Zach is pretty much eating whatever we eat, since we stopped breastfeeding, well I had to due to an accident I had Easter Sunday.  Poor kid had to go cold turkey  sad.gif  Since then he just eats and eats and eats.  Even walks around stealing food off everyone all day. LOL

So our main meals are mostly: spag bol, lasagna, (sp?), meat balls, tuna mornay, chicken, steak, with the usually veggies. (mash potato, peas, corn, carrots, pumpkin, brocoli, cauliflower), beff cassarols, (SP) I'm too lazy I usually use the maggi meal mixes, roasts -  chicken, and beff, silverside with white sauce, those bird eye fish fillets. (lazy again!!  can't be bothered with 4 kids. LOL) Rice, pasta, noodles, and soup, tin baked beans.

Haven't really introduced spicy food yet.  

The MIL was feeding him baby food  ohmy.gif  while I was in hospital, so DH took them home and now he won't let his mother near Zach. LOL

Hope that help you a little.

*HI* to everyone else who is still out there!

Hi Ladies,

I haven't been on this thread for ages, just caught up in other stuff.

Not sure if any of you remember me, but my DD is Kirra and was born on 22nd January.  All going okay apart from the fact that she is a shocking sleeper and eater ... will eventually get better!!

I hope you are all well.

Glad that your DS is eating better.

I'm loving this age too (well most of the time! LOL) probably cause I couldn't with DS#2, as I was 6 months preggers with Z!

Z is finally a great sleeper now, although there is a few days during the week where we refuses a day sleep! Grrrrrrr.  Now that's really annoying cause he ten falls asleep at or during dinner, so I'll give him 1/2 hour and he is up till 10ish.  (he is most nights though with a day sleep so can't win, although I don't have to put up with a whinging toddler that's had 1/2 sleep at dinner!) But at least he sleeps in his cot all night now.

He is kinda saying a few words. The usual mum, dad, dadda, mumma, and yesterday I though he said want one! LOL.  So what is everyone else 19 month old saying??  (Gosh it feels weird saying 19 months, where has all these years gone!)

Those that are preggers again, how are you all going, have we had any new bubs yet?

EDIT:  Forgot to say Sandy, I hope that things have picked up for you.  How was your appointment?
JTM, Don't know if I've said it or not, but "CONGRATZ!" on expecting another one.  
AJ - "CONGRATZ!" on your newest DD.  (have just seen it in your siggy in the last thread as I went back to see if I had said anything to JTM! LOL)
