    Kass - Thanks As for Uni - I have absolutely NO idea! My problem is that i'm interested in learning, but i don't know what i actually want to 'do'. I loved English at high school, & i love psychology & phys ed theory & biology. But i don't know what i want to 'do' with it. The one thing i did really want to do was artist/band & event management. But it's become an impractical choice now that i have a baby. So we'll see what happens when the time comes...

    Thanks Jo - I'm sort of testing them out at the moment, i don't think they're interfering with his suck - but he sucks on Anthony's fingers a lot when we bath him and THAT makes him chomp - so i thought we'd try a dummy (we have about eight laying around*). I have one that's "orthodontic" which he does sort of take but it's so easy for him to get rid of, so i've been just letting him have the one with the fat ball end on it. Or whatever they're called.

    * Ok so i shouldn't complain, but why do people give gifts of bottles & dummies, as if the parents of the child haven't thought of possible necessities like that??! It frustrated me to no end. For the $5 the spent on a dummy they could have got something like a baby wash instead - practical always going to get used sort of thing!!!

    No way Sal - sales rock!!! Haha. Sounds like you had a good day!

    We bought nearly EVERYTHING furniture wise from the Target Xmas Layby up to 40% off sale. And that's when i was only i think 9wks pregnant... And then all the clothes from 25% off sales... it's the good thing about kids, you can buy their clothes in advance at all the sales...

    Wish i could do that - when i need clothes i need them now!!

    Ash - we dont have to get much in the way of furniture, a lot of it we are being given, my niece is 17mths old so we will get a lot of her stuff. My mums buying the pram & Brendans mum is buying the car seat. We just need to get the bassinet & a few clothes, and a few little bits and pieces.

    Kass- Yes we will definately find out, I wanna know if I can buy little boy clothes or little girl clothes! My U/S is all booked for the 17th so I cant wait!

    Ash- no worries only to happy to help if i can. The fat ball dummies are the cherry type. Sophie has the Avent orthodontic type also and she gets rid of it easy too SIL gave me a newborn cherry type to try as it fills their mouth up more and might make it harder for them to get rid of. I agree you'd think people would buy practical gifts luckily we didnt get any dummies etc Sophie got a little trinket box, a bluebird bracelet, a birth coin, photo frame, a little teddy, a utensil set, bowl & plate from taronga zoo and a egg that looks like a cradle that Chris mum makes for all the grandkids. This might sound strange but my older sisters bf's grandparents buy stuff for Sophie (they dont have any grandkids of their own its kind of cute) they bought her a nice pink overalls suit & 2 skivvies that she'll fit into come winter. MIL showed me how to bath Sophie the day we got home and apart from her & Chris watching me bath her i've been doing it on my own the whole time, shes too wrigglely to be held in the water now but i have a cloth bath seat that i put her in and at first she hated the bath but now she loves it.

    Sally- you should know we can talk haha. Glad you had a good day at the zoo even if Brendan wasnt interested in the animals. That's great that you & Nigel are doing better and that hes helping more. I had to fold my washing this morning before the cleaners came geez i do alot of washing and most of it needs an iron YAY something else for me to do. I hope Mr B went to sleep for you & you both got some rest.

    Sal- oh wow buying baby clothes its all so exciting isnt it and once you find out the sex you'll be shopping even more haha i know i wanted to. Sales arent stupid they save you money so you can buy more things haha :P We bought our furniture off ebay & picked it up from the seller so saved money on the furniture and saved on delivery too. BRING ON the 17th!!!!.

    Kass- PMSL at your little jingle. Reading the beginning of your post i was going to ask once id finished if you'd had anything to drink etc you sound like you were in a very happy/strange mood last night.

    Krissy- i too had a mummy brain moment and forgot about you but it wont happen again i cant remember if your name was in your signature or not last time either.

    Goodmorning all

    What a horrid night I had. Mr monkey kept waking every few hrs or so and screaming! I feel like I have a newborn in my home I think I might take him to the drs... he doesn't seem to be weeing as much so maybe he has a problem and is in pain. See how he goes

    Whats everyone up to today??

    I'm going into town a little later, shopping ect.

    Sally- Let me know how beautiful brendan goes, poor lil man he's so stronge!

    Well 2day i had a staff meeting at 8:00am so u can imagine the mess Bella was in by the end of it! Another lady there has a bub the same age as annabelle and her name is Ayla. Now Ayla was VERY well behaved and made Bella look like those snotty lil children as she has a cold and was so tired by the end of it so was crying, poor lil thing way the f*#@ dont they have the meeting at 5:30pm after the shop closes!!! I was so embarressed
    But then when i got in the car and Bella was saying mum mum mum like she does x100 when she's tired. I thought who cares she's a bub whos sick and tired and doesn't want 2 sit in a room 4 an hr, when she's usually in bed!!!

    o and i 4got 2 add i spoke 2 clint last night and we discssed TTC #2 in feb next yr!! He said so far yes but we'll talk about it again in feb 09 and see where we're at!
    I said "Well my body is already STREATCHED, so any time b4 i work on a models body would b good! hahahahahahahaha................hahahahahahaha

    Kass, Sounds good i would like to start TTC around May this year... but things are not totally right between Nigel and I... we have to find a house which we are moving in with our brothers. It took us over a year to conceive Brendan.

    Jo - I find he takes the ortho one fine, but spitting it's too easy, and yet the cherry one is hard to get him to take because he has to open his mouth so wide, but at leats he doesnt spit it as often, lol.

    I ended up bathing alex in the basin in the bathroom - easier than trying to maneuver (sp?) his big change table bath - it was so cute he fit right in perfectly, i want a photo now, at this rate he won't fit in it much longer!

    Sally - sorry to hear you had a rough time of it last night. Good luck at the dr's hopefully all is okay.

    Kass - you shouldn't worry if bella was a snotty-grotty-sulky-smelly bub - they are babies, and people should understand!!!

    Yeah i should get off my soap box. lol
