    @Minib: oh...ya. A lot to watch for when they are more mobile!! DS hurt himself a few times when he started to pull himself up. He didn't know how to get down properly so just dropped back down. If he missed the table, or any furniture by an inch, he bit his tongue, hit his gum/chin and drew some blood!
    @Gelati: DS has been getting broncholiatis every time he has a cold. It is not normal. It isn't as bad as pneumonia (relatively speaking!). That's why the good GP is now referring him to see a specialist but the wait is so long. I should just stay off google. Now i am getting really worried. DS seems to have sleep apnea. He also seems very fatigue even with enough sleep. Do you remember that we had a discussion about nap a while back? DS still naps a lot. He generally naps less at daycare but still 3hrs on average there, which i think is normal but he looks super tired. At home, he could easily nap 4 hrs in total. He broke the record of 6 hrs in total today despite he woke up at 7am! He has been waking up around 5:30--6am. DH puts it down to being sick. I don't know.........

    OK, i am not the only one who still cut grapes and berries. I was worried about raisin but decided to give it a go at the playdate. DS seems to be fine eating it, just not the orange.

    Ya, breakfast is boring. Even lunch and dinner are boring. DS is getting very picky. Guess what? I was eating his apple today with the porridge fine. He didn't want his porridge the other day. Tonight, he only wants the rice cracker for dinner!!! I try pancake, weetbit (not adding milk, just let him eat like a cracker), yogurt and fruit. At daycare, morning is usually fruit + cereal (carb). Oh...we went to a sushi train place last weekend. DS loved it! He likes new places and things in general. Not that he could eat any raw fish but he enjoyed the atmosphere. He is so much easier now than before.

    DS birthday is next week. I was planning to keep him at home next week but DH doesn't think he can take leaves. Sigh...i was hoping we can share the responsibility given that i only work 3 days a week. If i take 3 days off, i get nothing done. My parents will be here after DS birthday so that's another week off for me. I see this as another good opportunity to give DS a break from illness. ie, off childcare for 3 weeks. Ya, paying so much for nothing but money can't buy the health. I wish my parents were here next week instead. Oh well.......I'll discuss this with DH again. I really don't want DS to be this sick for his party.

    i am getting sick again. Wish i didn't go to the playdate. I didn't know the mom was sick.

    @Minib yeh so much more dangerous now. I'm starting to get quite concerned about sharp edges. Coffee table, raised flooring with tiles and those edges. I'm going to look for stuff at masters. I'm just wondering how anything stays on and whether he'll just pull it off.

    @bbhope oh poor ds, everytime he gets sick? Is it because you need to put him in Childcare the next week even though he is sick? We did that with ds a couple of weeks ago. He was almost better but still had 37.5 temp from the past week in Childcare but j thot should be ok so put him in on Monday. That's when he got 39 temp on wed! So basically that means it has to be one week on and one week off. But some mums don't have a choice like you. So what do you do? Can't be one week on one week off for work. Let's just hope cold season is almost over. I think maybe 2 more months at most. Although I know that's a long time for you. It's tough without grandparents.

    @Gelati: ds has never had a gap. If he isn't very sick, no fever, just runny nose, we send him in. The sickness started when we came back from Europe in May! Honestly, it is nearly one week on and one week off for us at the moment. We pushed it and sent him in on wed. When he started the fever, that's it. He is home with us for the rest of the week. I feel bad sending him when he has fever because childcare can't pay 100 percent attention to him. Yes, one day there is enough to get the germs. That's why I don't feel like sending him in next week to ruin his birthday party on the weekend.

    We bought the foam mat from Kmart. But DS is pulling it apart! So have to keep am eyes on him. He hardly stays on it. Just crawl elsewhere.

    @bbhope poor DS sick again!

    Still don't have a cleaner yet. At this rate I probably won't have it for a couple more months. Can't find any cleaner that's free. But I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving a spare key for them yet. I probably would let them in then go to the shops and come back to lock up. Don't know.

    @bbhope I would cut grape vertically. Cc would cut grape still. It's a massive choking hazard. But blueberries are fine. I don't even cut blueberries anymore. Always cut grape though. Mandarin I peel off the skin and give her a whole segment to eat. She's ok with it. I haven't given strawberry as a whole yet. She only has 2 teeth haha.

    DD is so fussy the last 2 days. Don't like milk or food. Fussy pot. Not quite sure. She's not sick as far as I know.
    @Gelati haven't called the MCHN line yet. I thought I'll observe a couple more days before I ask for opinion. It happens to be another leap time so I wonder if that's why she's fussy. Or if she's teething. Or if she's just being a girl and fussy lol.

    No luck with cc yet. But I don't plan to put her in cc until Jan next year anyway. Mum is happy to look after her 5 days. Guess what. I said she wasn't pulling herself up last week. 2 days ago she pulled herself up and even climbed up the couch herself. We took the top cushion off so it's lower (just the base), she stood up holding the couch, climbed up and went back down herself.
    @bbhope with finger food I tend to give 3 items at a time. Otherwise she gets distracted.

    My DD has gone off her fruit salad (raspberry, blueberries, mandarin and kiwifruit). Bummer! Need to give her other fruit now. She seems to have gone off weetbix too.
    @bbhope I was also worried about her biting off tongue

    Happy long weekend @Gelati!

    We have a bubba mat which is quite big and DD likes to crawl everywhere too. Can't sit still. She must know everything. Even in the pram she would extend her neck out and wants to see what she's missing out on. FOMO massively.

    We got lucky with the cleaner. She is local and this is her business. She is busy but have a spot for me. Well, I think she just works really hard. Last time she didn't even have her lunch as she was late! I only thought about it after the fact because I was rushing o take DS out. Anyway, in the fight with DH ATM about the key situation. Men...he just said that he would rather clean the house himself. Seriously, I won't have hired one if he was helping or offered when we discussed it last time.

    Wow...DD is able to eat the mandarin pieces whole? That's good. DS just choke. He likes kiwi only if it isn't sour.

    Oh I find DS develops very fast once he started the commando crawl. He is not walking yet but he loves to release his hands and stand without assist for a few second. Mainly to showing it off to us. Lol.

    @bbhope - a few hrs is enough to catch something. I feel for you, I know it's hard to send ds when he is still unwell but you don't really have a choice. On his birthday week maybe put him in early during the week and then take time off so by the time it's weekend he's feeling better? Still not ideal but bette than full time Childcare that week.
    As for the cleaner that's great you found a good cleaner i would hold onto them if I were you. Dh says he will clean now bit you never know if he doesn't follow through then you would be left without a cleaner. Tho I understand the key thing.
    Yes ds just crawls off the mat now. I put it around the coffee tables so if he falls he doesn't hit his head on the floor boards. Oh very smart boy! Ds still can't stand without holding onto something but he does furniture surf now and he's getting more confident standing.

    @Minib - yay dd is climbing and standing now! Gee they grow fast hey! Omg they are getting really fussy with their food hey! Today ds didn't eat that much for breakfast cos dh tried to give him avocado on toast. He hates toast now. Then he only are a bit of Apple. Well he woke up after his nap screaming in hunger but when I brought a bowl out he went hysterical thinking it was porridge. Oh it was drama. Like he was saying 'I don't want porridge but I'm starving!!!' Anyways I just shoved a spoonful of yoghurt with banana and strawberry into his mouth while he was screaming and after realising what it was happily are the rest of the owl and wanted more. I think I'm in for bad tantrums with ds.
    Hahah massive FOMO! So funny! Ds is the same, sticks out his neck as far as it would go. So nosey!

    @Gelati: i'll see how things go next week. DH doesn't want to take time off and i have backlog on my work. I can't really take time off either. Sigh....

    LOL. DS was doing the exact same thing!!!!!!! He woke up hungry. I offered him milk. He pushed it away. Cried hysterically. I didn't know what's up. Finally, i tried offering him a rice cracker and he gave me a smiling look immediately. Cheeky boy!

    Ya, forgot to say. DS doesn't like to be in his pram much anymore because he can't see very well. He keeps sticking his neck out. He is more OK in the shopping trolley now.

    @bbhope oh if you both can't tKe time off then that's a shame. But to be honest he won't know it's his first birthday. Pictures of them sick on their first birthday is probably a truer representation of their first year than a happy smiling baby. Haha!

    Oh they are so naughty aren't they! The problem is if they don't eat well then we suffer cos they don't sleep well. Ahh the sleep chronicles continue. Ds's favourite food at the moment is the smiling cow cheese. He will happily eat that smeared on bread.

    @Minib - oh no dd is off fruit cocktail? What is her new fav food?

    I think our eating at restaurant days are numbered. Ds just wants to get down and play.
