    poor Summah ...

    Lol @ Ari!

    Yeah. If you ever actually want to encourage your DH to not use cheap or J&J products, give him a baby wipe to clean the LCD or plasma TV

    Kaz - Far out, I didn't know that won't be touching J&J products again!

    PP - Gaia was the other moisturiser I tried actually! I just didn't use it for long, I was using the J&J first....big mistake obviously!! pawpaw ointment is awesome, my poppa (who's no longer with us) use to say "you can't put it near your bum or it'd heal that up too" hahaha. I use pawpaw ointment when I have Jacob in cloth, and always have a tube handy in my bag - I love it! Bummer on the weather....hope it's short lived! I LOVE gummy smiles, I do miss them!

    Georgi - Good luck with the unswaddling...we're not quite ready for that here yet. Hope he stops being such a stuntman! You definately make BLS sound very appealing! Worth a shot i think!! Awesome news on the paternity leave!

    MadB - A sounds so clever!! You might have a little inventor on your hands! I just love the things he comes out with, you must get such a laugh out of him. Hope M slept well for you seen as you were already missing the ABA meeting!

    Crumpet - Ahhh so Summah did get sick? Bit like Jacob, he was whinging too and then finally came down with this rotten cold Hope she's sleeping better than Jacob, our days and nights are totally rotten, I'm exhausted. Last night he woke up from his blocked nose every twenty minutes!! I bought a vaporiser for mums house today, cause I left mine at home. for tonight. They are such a handful when they aren't well. Hope Summah feels better really soon.

    Hope everyone else is doing well and had a great Monday. xox

    Hey guys, everything been going well with us. No news on the house yet as DP is looking into other banks to get a loan through, rather than just Commonwealth.

    Will update properly tomorrow, but just wanted to let you guys know that Hannah's story is now on the Miracle Babies Foundation website.

    Wow Charlotte, I had read your posts on here about Hannah, and seen the photos, but never realised the pregnancy side of your story. *hug*

    I must say that in the past couple of weeks I've a new appreciation for Ronald McDonald House.

    Looks like a cold might be heading our way. Hannah is FERAL!!!! Full on screaming, thrashing around. Wants to be held. Slightly snotty nose.
    Hahaha, to think that only last night I was begging DP to make another baby!! He said no, not yet. lol.

    Off to Melbourne on Thursday, as Hannah has another audiology appt on Friday afternoon to re-check her hearing. Her left ear had 50% hearing loss, so they want to see if its improved or not. If not, she'll need a grommet put in.

    Not into solids at all lately, could be because she's getting sick. She just cries if I put the spoon near her mouth. But, she LOVES biscuits. She eats a good 70% of it, so if she just wants a bikkie, then thats fine. She's still drinking her bottles.

    Hmmm, Jules..... Last time Jacob got sick, Hannah got sick too.... Maybe they've been seeing each other behind our backs!! lol.

    omg Cathie! How exciting!!!!!!!!!

    Crumpet - DH wanted something to clean his prize TV and insisted on reading the ingredients ... since then he's stayed away from them!!!!! He thought it would be low chemical near his bum, not stuff that he wouldn't use on a TV!!!

    Us - someone's pushing something out - hopefully it's more than just wind!!!!

    I'm just emerging from this sickness fog... It has been horrid. Mum came early to help us out. Just revolting, although for anyone who has to do a lot of noseblowing, I cannot recommend flannelette hankies highly enough. They're everywhere though, because we've both been sick. Saline nasal spray was great for both of us, I'm almost better, and Eleanor is not far off.

    Jules - pawpaw ointment in the red tube is no good for your nappies. Just a heads up. We love the orange tube one, this last two weeks it has done an amazing job of shifting the cradle crap. We use some of the Gaia products, we got a sampler pack as a gift, but my favourite is Aromababy, although it is exxy, so after that we will probably move to Ecostore. The baby wash smells divine.

    crumpet - we make our own rusks out of bread crusts, just slice them and chuck them in a slow oven until they're firm. Also, we make polenta fingers, 1 part polenta to 3 parts water (I also chuck in a bit of EBM) Then pour it into a tray or container, refrigerate until firm, slice and serve. They're pretty good for snacks.

    Kaz - Eleanor managed peas today! Off a spoon, though. We were eating minestrone, and she had a little pile of broccoli that was cooked in the pot with it, so bits of soup everywhere, an she wouldn't touch it. Just yelled at me while reaching for my fork. So I gave her a spoon, dipped in broth - she leaned forward and licked it, didn't want to hold it, so I ended up feeding her. She ate heaps, but just mustn't have been in the mood for using her own hands. Lazy little monkey!

    Charlotte - Thank you for sharing the story on your miracle baby, it was such a great read She's such a little legend. And you and your DP too for what you endured, couldn't ask for a better outcome though could you! FAR OUT, I wish I had your enthusiasm for another baby already....DH would LOVE to start trying, I told him dream on. Hope Hannah doesn't end up with a cold!! maybe they do have something going on hahahaha.

    Crumpet - Thankfully last night with the vaporiser things were much better! Only woke twice. Sounds like things are full on there with Summah it will pass, and she'll be back to her wonderful bubbly self soon....hang in there love! I agree, day time sleeps aren't a big issue if the nights are working well

    Cathie - WOOHOO!! Go Charlie!!! Clever little man. Hope you're all doing well

    Kaz - hope you got the end result you were after hehe.

    Audax - Oh thanks so much for that info, I am so hopeless. A friend told me paw paw ointment was ok I didn't even know that it came in different coloured tubes!! where do you get the orange one from? Thanks heaps for that. Luckily I haven't used it much!! Far out, I wish I was as clever as you at cooking etc....you're keen as!! to Eleanor getting you to feed her, they are so smart!!

    All good here, went to the BigW toy sale and did the 'early bird layby' for the toy sale at Target. So happy, I have done all the christmas shopping for Jacob and my nephews and niece. I even got Jacobs birthday presents and my nephews birthday present for May next year!!! : most organised I've ever been.

    Hope everyone is well! xox

    With custard, are you making it with EBM or formula? Or dairy?

    I was just thinking about making custard this morning! I've never done it before. Not for DD though, bit too sweet just yet. I do have a feeling we probably won't be quite as strict with processed foods as we were with DS. IT's harder when you've got an oder child already eating crap
    Actually, DS had custard for the first time when he started daycare He doesn't like it anyway.

    christmas shopping? gulp. i hate toy sales

    I heard those wipes are great for cleaning carpets too...

    illness and teeth suck Hoe everyone is 100% again soon. The kids are a bit snotty here too.
    I just bought a little squirt, so kind of looking forward to the next poo

    D'oh cathie, I mean, well done Charlie

    Hi all,

    Sitting here in the dark listening to Millie snuffle and snort in the cot next to me. Have to say I'll miss her sleeping in the same room when we go home. She's starting to "talk" a lot more, she's making different sounds and sometimes her pitch and tone really suits the moment. It's very cute!

    Just a quick hello as it has been a big day and we'll be up early tomorrow... but Audax thanks for the polenta idea, I'll try that when we get home. Millie definitely likes anything with corn in it, I guess because the AR formula has cornmeal in it as a thickener?

    Hope you're all well and that all the snot dries up. We have a bit here but it's pollen-related. Gah.

    because corn is yummy!

    I made that risotto again (the one DS had nightmares about, you may remember). he ate it without complaint, so perhaps it's ok if you give it a break for a few months.

    Hey Cathie, I found out somethign the other day. It's possible to have identical boy-girl twins! They're not 100% genetically identical obviously, but share a single egg. Must be very rare. So anyway, I have to ask.... are they identical?

    MadB - I use them here for cleaning marks off the walls. They do a great job, just have to watch the paintwork though ...

    Will's enjoying his food. Saw the MCHN on Wednesday, she sent us off to the docs to get Will's fat rolls looked at. He's 8kg and in the 50th percentile for weight, but 75th for height. I knew he was tall!!! He's doing really well, playing around nicely and defending himself against Pip. Plus he's had his 6mth vacc on Thursday. We've a referral to get an ultrasound on his hips. So arranging that for ASAP.
