I'm about 9 weeks away from joining the 2 under 2 club as well. Congrats on your news, I hope everything goes well. Where abouts in QLD are you.
My first was a boy who is 17months now, i fell preggers when he was 11 months, so there will be a 20 month gap between the two, which i think is just nice. I grew up in a family of six kids and the closest age gap i have is three years. I'm not as close to my siblings as i would like to be and that's why we decided to have number two closer.
I've just put my son into a big bed at the start of January, he took to it really well. But instead of buying an ensemble or slat base bed, we got him a car bed. It was the best decision we've made,. He can't fall out because the sides are there right to the end of the bed and if he wants to get out he climbs down to the bottom and he's only a couple of inches off the floor. they have quite a few nice girls designs like butterflies and fairies in that type of bed as well now. Harvey Norman and places like that have them.
I put him into the booster seat about two weeks ago now because i didn't want him climbing out to see the baby. i thought if he was used to it then it wouldn't be such a novelty when the baby came. same with the bed.
Isn't the heat here unbearable at the moment? I'm just about dying. the baby is still head up even though I'm 31 weeks and is quite happy to be there. I'd pay for some relief on my back at the moment.
