I know what you mean though, girst time i lefy her for a night with DH he looked suitably stressed on my return
Oh those horrid teeth!! Will was a late teether thankfully, couldnt have handled teething on top if the terrible sleeping lol. He got his bottom teeth at just under 11 months, his too two cut through the day before his first birthday and he just got the two top ones beside his front teeth last night. Thankfully he hasnt been affected by teething yet and just sleeps fine but I'm constantly expecting him to regress back to his old ways lol.
Sounds like you deserve a break on your second baba since Megan sounds like my Will. I'll stay optimistic that our next one will be a better sleeper - considering the first was like a baptism of fire! No one can prepare you for the sleep deprivation lol!

Everyone said to me oh those first few weeks of sleepless nights are hard - no one mentioned the other 12months lol!

If you go to a CVS/Walmart on your trip they sell a baby teething gel called orajel and nighttime orajel - they are fab! Worked wonders on Megan! Not sure what the minimum age is but if he is old enough they are worth it.

Exactly!! But when I told my friend who has a daughter the same age as Will that I was so tired from sleepless nights she started saying that it had to be my fault etc cause her DD was sleeping through from 2 months! Children are so different from each other, sometimes they sleep great and others not so much. We'll count our blessing that they're healthy and perfect other than the sleeping thing lol.
Thanks for the tip on teething gels! Theres NOTHING available that helps!

Thanks It will most definitely be hectic lol! Its a good thing DS has turned into a calm (ish!) child lol.

As for broodiness, oh stop - I'm getting worse! DH has warned me it will be ages before we go back to WDW now since I'm talking about having a couple more kids first so he says I better enjoy this trip to the fullest!

Yahoooooo!!! Seriously can't wait! Things left to do are:
- sort out where my dog will be staying
- get new glasses and contact lenses
- find a pair of good walking flip flops for me and decent footwear for DS so he can have them worn in a bit
- finish packing
- sort out carry on bags
- book carseat for one night from car hire
- buy another swimsuit!!

I'm sure theres loads I'm forgetting. I feel a bit scatter brained this week. I'm going away with my girl friends at the weekend so once I'm back from that I'm sure my focus will return lol!!

Oh, does anyone know what Virgin do with gate checked buggies? I mean, do I have to buy a travel bag to put the buggy in? The city mini one is quite expensive!!

Previously we have taken our maclaren on holiday with us. When we check in we are given the tag for the pushchair along with a thick plastic bag. At the gate i just threw the maclaren in the bag and sealed it. When we got to the other end it was laying at one side of the luggage carousel. Other times when we haven't done the bag and just put it on as us its been left set up ready to go.

We haven't had any damage to the maclaren but the way it folds means that everything is inside if you know what I mean. I honestly think that it would be fine but could you perhaps find some other bag to put around it? Or see if there is a travel bag on ebay?

Gosh, had a look at the city mini travel bags and I see what you mean! Hope you find one on ebay, or maybe there's a non branded alternative.

Bought Will his first pair of sandals for the trip today!!
Also ordered our dollars! Collecting them next Thursday.
Sorted out accommodations for our dog so thats ticked off the list.
Next up is sorting our trip insurance. Other jobs that need doing are:
-eye test
-buy contact lenses for both DH and I
-print plane tickets and villa/car vouchers
-pack properly (everything is left in one case but I need to go through everything and pack properly)

I'm sure there is more but I can't think right now!

Oh and after reading Leanne's recent TR and seeing Elsie's personalised top I found a local place that does hoodies so that came in the mail today too I'll upload a pic once I'm on the laptop tomorrow

Sob! Cant seem to find any alternatives that could fit the City Mini. I think I'll have to buy the right one or risk damaging the buggy
