    Hi Everyone,

    To the new girls Ive just turned 31 and have two boys Zander and Wyatt, we moved here for my husbands work at easter time and dont have any family here and the only people I know are through this website!! It gets stressfull and sometimes I just want to pack it all up and go back to where my parents and all the help is!!

    We wont be going anywhere tomorrow...will just spend the day at home..try and do something next thurs. Wyatt is still waking at night he seems to be in a routine of 1am/4am and 530am waking. He is not taking to the bottle or formula very well and will only eat rice cereal..he gags on potato/apple/pears etc....very high maintenance. Zander loves daycare and seems to be in terrible 2's mode already including bad tantrums.

    I have enjoyed the rain..only downside is having to use the dryer!!! anyway take care everyone.....bye for now

    Yeah, we;re staying in, how awesome is the rain? wow, ive been on this site alot lately.... maybe im starting to get abit of free time haha, glad your in a routine of sorts, brodie wakes at the same times, 1am, 4.30am and then up at about 5.30am. Sometimes he'll skip 1am but always up at half 5 am, usually I put him in bed with me til about 7am, he just babbles and stuff but its to early and im still way to tired hahaa..
    Ive been having moments because my nanna is really sick and is in deep dementia from multiple strokes and bens family came and visited then his sister came up and it really makes you miss home. Guess thats where this site can be handy, meeting people in similar situations.
    well i have a 8month old boy who is very grizzly and needs to go to bed but im trying to make him hang out til at least 7!
    enjoy the rain!! i saw some kids playing in it today and thought if i had the time and energy would have gone out with my two eldest ones.
    take care

    I will be at the Musuem tomorrow. Looking forward to it though I will probably get lost getting there. I am so bad at directions.

    Tanya, I am sure you will do great for your P's. Agree with Emma that parallel parking is a pain. I still can't do it properly.

    Emma, DS means darling son, DP is darling husband, DP is darling partner and DS is darling daughter.

    Better go. I think something has died in Cooper's nappy.

    good morning ladies, how are we all this morning? good here DS has just gone off to kindy and DD is chatting away in her cot so bottle time for her soon! I dont no how you ladies do the whole waking up 2-3 times a night! I have been pretty lucky both off my kidlets have pretty much slept all night since 6 weeks, we do have the odd "off" night were one will wake and im the crankest "*itch" when that happens ...so i take my hat off to you ladies! Sarah yes i am from huggies hehe, i beleive we have met b4 (online anyway)! Thanks for all the encouragement ladies with my P's, a couple of months ago the inlaws were here, and i was driving them around Father Inlaw needed to use to loo and we were on the strand near the rock pool and i remember freaking becuz it was reverse parking and ended up driving half way up the strand to find a spot to park and made him walk hehe! (lucky there not old).. I have a driving lesson today so i guess i better mention the whole parking thing, and that indicating crap around roundabouts..i dont get that ..Well sorry ladies im already babbeling! Have a great morning every1, and thnks for being so welcoming , hopefuly one day i will get to meet you all ! Bye for now...xox

    Ah, its been a little hard because Brodie used to sleep the whole night but after he has immunistations he gets really sick and throws everything out, we actually had a good night last night, he went to bed at 8pm slept til half 3 then up at half 6. So hopefully getting into a good sleeping routine again, Im trying to feed him up through the day to help fill him up. Rori has always been an amazing sleeper she'll sleep anywhere from 10 -12 hours. She's just sometimes a little difficult to get to sleep! But you cant win them all and like I said no 2 babies are the same...
    Have fun with your lesson today, when I went for my p's i was in the middle of the sa desert on a 48degree day 7months preggas with my son with no air con in the car... lucky for me she was hot and didnt want to do it and just made me drive around the block!! So.. I never paralell park. Id rather walk!! Haha.
    Well we are having a very quiet day at home. Im hoping to make it to the post office but not holding my breath.
    Take care ladies and have fun at the muesum. It is quite good.

    Hi ladies - I dont know whether I really qualify for a Townsville mum as I live in Cloncurry. But I visit Townsville as much as I can - if you have ever been to Cloncurry you will know why!
    Anyway - I am originally from Townsville. I lived there for 20 years before moving out here to be with my DH. I had my little baby girl 9 months ago and I had her in Townsville so I am hoping that gives me a little foot in the door anyway.
    Have a great day/evening everyone!

    Hi Rebecca77. Clonclurry is close enough to Townsville for me, mainly because I have no idea how far away it is. Really not good with directions and distance. Welcome. Caitlyn is adorable, love the hat!

    Cooper adored the museum. His favourite thing was coming down the walkway between level 1 and 2 LOL! We went past a group of school kids who were walking up who thought it was hysterical that Cooper was yelling "Wee" as we were walking down. He loved the buttons on the exhibits as well.

    Hi,

    The museum sounds great..I wish I had enough energy to go out and spend the whole time running after Zander!!!We just bummed around at home today and I even had a catnap this morning while the boys had a nap....I should of been tidying/washing/cleaning etc but couldnt be bothered.

    My Paediatrician has sent a referral off to the Ellen Barron Centre in Brisbane for me to go and stay with Wyatt..for those that havnt heard about it..its an all week stay-in facility fully staffed 24hrs with nurses and a paediatrician to try and help with sleeping/feeding/post natal issues etc you get 3 meals a day and its to try and help with any issue you may have. I stayed there when Wyatt was 7 weeks old but because he was so young it wasnt that successful so now that he is nearly 7mnths old Im hoping to get things sorted eg weaning and sleeping. Im waiting to hear back from them to find out when Im going..queensland health pay for you to fly down.

    We are going to take Zander to lollipops this weekend for something to do..not much else is happening....bye for now

    Nothing planned for this weekend other than swimming lessons for the little man and some shopping for me. Still have to pack the hospital/labour bag and Ian is starting to get really excited that it is not done yet. Don't know why LOL!

    Nicola, I hope you get the details for the Centre in Bne ASAP. At least you had a nap today. There is nothing worse than not having enough sleep. The house doesn't matter in the slightest (as you could see from the state of my place except that it just laziness at the moment!). Is someone going to help Adam (it is Adam, isn't it?) with Zander while you are away or will he go with you? There was a program on ABC about a place in Sydney I think called Karitane or something. Seemed to be really effective. All the kids seemed to be over about 6 months old before they went there. It was really interesting and seemed to make a huge difference.

    Good morning everyone and thanks for the welcome!!
    For those who don't know - Cloncurry is 800km west of Townsville - so about a days drive. And next Saturday I will bemaking that drive!!
    I see you guys were talking about the museum - I can only guess its the one near the Great Barrier Reef Wonderland. I love it there - havent been since before I moved out here in November 2006 but I loved it there. I think I am just a 31 year old kid sometimes though.
    Well I am really glad that I am coming to Townsville as one of my dear friends has just had her baby just over a week ago and I cannot wait to meet her!! Seen photos and she is GORGEOUS!!! of course!
    Anyway - am actually sitting at work doing this so I had better go and maybe do some work??
    Have a great day all - MWAH

    Weekend was good as I now have everything for the hospital bag. Crap, still need to pack it though.

    Am starting to get some back pain every now and then but it is not too bad. Am now hoping that bubs is overdue so Mum and Dad can look after Cooper during the labour. They arrive on the 9th August (one day after EDD).

    Off to the Townsville Hospital within the next half hour or so. Cooper has the second half of his eye appointment. Hopefully we won't have to wait for the specialist for an hour and a half like last time. is it any wonder he got cranky? I mean, he is not yet 2 and our appointment was 90 mins late. Then we had the tests etc. He did so well then so am hoping he is as good today. Unfortunately he has not had his nap so that will be interesting. Better go and pack his bag.

    Hi

    Courtney hope all went well at the hospital....I think specialists everywhere make you wait, for Wyatts appointment we waited 2 hours and then still had to pay $350!!!

    Miracles do happen....last night Wyatt slept the longest he ever has since being born nearly 7 months ago!!! The only problem was Zander has a cold and woke almost every hour during the night..he went from our bed to the sofa with me back to his bed etc all night..Wyatt slept through it all so Im hoping for a sleep tonight..its not to much to ask is it?????
