    Same with my two. They have just as much fun as I ever did, but they're making slightly different stuff. Houses and gardens instead of submarines and spaceships.

    I played with LEGO a lot as a kid. I'm hoping she'll love it as much.

    I've got 2 brothers. I never wanted sisters. Girls are weird.

    I knew for certain my lady's wee girl and I were going to be solid when she took such a shine to Lego. I've got all my old Lego here and every birthday and Xmas we each add to the collection.

    I plan on having my own daughter on the Technics by six.

    Girls smell of wee and dollies. Every boy knows that.

    Because their advertising has turned it into one. Well that and a very conscious business decision by The LEGO Group. Wich the marketing reflects dutifully.

    Anyhows...

    There was some blood this morning. So within 48hrs something should happen. Or it was just a random thing. Last time the water broke so I really don't know what to make of this...

    Ive actually banned that because its so irredeemably stupid. Im quite a dick like that. Anything that I think is idiotic and sends a bad message for girls isnt coming into the house.

    My 4 year old nephew loves LEGO Friends. Yeah, he's probably gay.

    Google feminist frequency and Lego for two very well made YouTube's on the subject

    And it seems like a false alarm on the baby front. But it made everything feel very real all of a sudden.

    The little fella is now in his 9th week. 13lbs 10oz. Nice weight. But annoyingly, he is teething! Already! Unbelievable. Can't be arsed to come out on his due date, but everything else, he is in a rush with.

    Bloody hell, I thought mine were fast at that!
    I had one of mine at the dentist yesterday, she has a big tooth nearly through at the front...but the baby one is still there. Looks very wrong, but apparently it should be fine.

    Wow Vic, he weighs more than mine and she's twice his age! Are you feeding him Irn Bru?

    Haha. No Irn-Bru, thankfully. At this rate, he may also get weaned a bit earlier than he was expecting. Breast milk alone may soon not be enough.

    I thought R was teething at 8 weeks, she had all the signs, but then it calmed down after a week or so. I think they move in spurts.

    If Floyd's Max didn't have a 7 month headstart, I would suggest a battle of the giant babies :D

    Nothing new to report on my front.
    Three nights ago my wife had labour pains but they faded and since then nothing.

    I just wish he would arrive before Lucia so that I can see Kid A's performance at day care. He will be jumping with joy over the fact that he'll be allowed to wear his Santa costume to day care that day.

    This being the first year our son has started school, it was quite fun to see how excited all the kids were that there was some snow here. :)

    There will be snowball fights galore today I think, if the drizzle/rain doesn't wash it all away before they get to break time.

    It was a nice window into when snow was exciting and not just a pain in the arse that makes getting into work more difficult!

    It was a weird death trap at my daughters school last week. Most of the playground is covered in that rubber play matting but when it gets even a little frosty, it turns into an ice rink.

    Queue lots of little people falling on their arses on the way in.

    Going through a bit of a tough time at the mo. My one has been an absolute angel thus far - we truly couldn't have been luckier. Been sleeping through the night since 3 months, eats whatever we give him, is never pukey and rarely sick etc etc.

    However, at 18 months he's just started waking up around 2:30 every single night and takes an age to go back to sleep, needing at the very least comforting and generally needs to get up and have milk and be entertained for a bit. It's getting really tough now. Haven't got more than a few hours sleep for a couple of weeks and my wife and I are both back at work full time, so it's really difficult to cope.

    Just sharing really.

    Is there maybe a reason? Cold feet? Hungry? Central heating coming on?
  • Deleted user 3 December 2012 10:58:25
    Could well be, but we've addressed the usual causes.

    The main change is that he's gone from a baby who easily went back to sleep, to one that doesn't. He's always going to get woken up in the night - we live in London and there's always stuff going on outside. But in the past he'd cry out for a second then quickly go back to sleep. Now he just gets himself worked up into a state until he's properly awake.

    CHILD R did this when she was old enough to turn her lamp on by herself.

    She soon got bored of it when she realised that we basically paid her absolutely no attention. It takes an atom bomb to get the wife out of bed and I didnt really want to pander to her, so we just left her and she went back to sleep by herself.

    It was actually quite lucky the wife is such a heavy sleeper or she would have been fussing around her. i had to chain her to the bed when we did the controlled crying stuff.

    Hmm. Perhaps leaving him to it is the solution. There's a certain level of upsetness I find it hard to ignore. I can do the general moan crying, but once he starts screaming so hard that he's making himself cough and splutter, I feel like it's bad parenting to ignore it.

    "18 months sleep regression" does seem to be a thing according to google.
