just thought i'd jump on with a quick update...
All good here - twins have just celebrated their first birthday - that came around far too quickly, like everyone else, wish I could slow things down a bit!
Evan is very mobile! like lightening crawling around, pulling himself up on everything and letting go now and again, can get on top of the coffee table
and clings to it like a limpet if you try to get him off. At the weekend he stood up from sitting on the floor. Cari has now been crawling for about a week
and is getting quicker. She says 'caaaa' when she sees the cat (or the dog
) and points at everything. Hope they are going to enjoy playing together but at the moment they have battles wanting whatever the other one has and screaming when the other one takes it. Evan is also starting to bite
, this morning he bit my phone in sheer frustration as Cari tried to take it (he only has it when I'm changing his nappy as otherwise he just rolls over and crawls away), he's also tried to bite Cari's shoulder to get what she was playing with and bit my Dad yesterday when he tried to do up his cardi
) Any tips on stopping that gratefully received!
Had a 'german measles' drama a few weeks ago - took Cari to gp with rash and that was his diagnosis (that or measles) ended up with public health nurse on phone and having to take a swab and send it off (she was fairly certain it was mealses of any sort) but caused a whole lot of panic as SIL is pregnant. Rash went within 2 days and Cari back to herself, Evan didn't get whatever it was. Bloody GP! always seem to see him when I have a 'book on the day' appointment and he's hopeless - insisted on urine sample to check for infection and prescribed antibiotics when I went there with what I knew was another cyst - 3 months (and bucketfuls of painkilllers) later I had a scan to confirm it
Cari has had 2 bad nights in a row and has come to sleep in our bed for the first time (not keen to make a habit of it) She wakes at 2am takes a while to settle her then wakes at 3am and won't be put back down in the cot without screaming, as soon as she's picked up she's fine. Tempted to leave her for 5 mins to see if she would settle but she wakes Evan, then everyone's up. Any ideas?
Mum has picked up twins and is having them for the day - might bank a bit of sleep in case we have another bad night, before starting on the cleaning & tidying ... and gosh is there some work to do!
