    Hi guys



    How's everyone doing these days?..... guess I should go back for the last 9 pages and see, huh

    Deb... sorry to hear that you're having milk supply dramas. I'm sure if Gabby seems happy and is still putting on a bit of weight you can't be doing her any harm. Hopefully you'll have a big burdt of production soon and she'll put on weight like crazy

    Tanya.. congrats on the job It's gotta feel good to get out a bit and do something different for a while... and get paid for it It's great that you can bring Violet too....may as well train her up young!

    Sarah...glad to see Zander is keeping up the trend of growing bubs I'm, sure that he'll have a growth spurt soon too, so don't give up on the idea of a pro basketball career for him

    Trish....bugger at Tehya being sick again.. poor little mite hasn't had the best run of things lately. I hope that the specialist can shed some new light on her hair for you too.

    Fi... I know what you mean about finding time to post... there isn't enough time in the day, and by the time I remember to post, I've usually forgotten how to speak coherently anyway I stopped changing Bas's nappy for his nightime feed too as it would wake him up too much.. that's where you really see the difference between Huggies and the rest! Glad it's helping Jenna to settle though

    Umm...I know I've forgotten heaps of you guys...

    oh, Welcome Michelle and Alex!! It only seems like the other day I was reading your birth noticed!... although with how often I get on here, it probably was

    Nat, Nell, Scarlett, Dee, Dinky.. Hi to you guys and hope all your mini people are doing well

    Things are pretty good here. Bas is sitting up!!! He still leans forward a bit, and occasionally flops over to the side when he's reaching for something, but he can sit on his mat and play with his toys without having me hold him up! It's very exciting He's soooo desperate to crawl too... he gets so frustrated when something is out of his reach and he kicks his legs around and digs his toes into the floor and lifts his bum up and then chucks a tanty He's decided that he's going to have a cranky patch when he goes to bed, but he's usually settled and fast asleep by about 9ish.. so I can deal with the occasional scream fits between 7.30 and 9.
    I start back at work on September 1st, and I'm not looking forward to it It's only for 3 mornings a week.. but I don't want to miss out on anything! The money will definitely come in handy though... the last couple of months have been a bit tough, but that's what we get for going out and buying a bigger house!

    Oh well.. enough babble from me... back in a month for another installment of life at our house (hopefully it won't actually be a month though...)

    Gonna go try to put up some more pics on my website... I got some really cute ones the other day, but the stupid program to get them off the camera is playing up...so I hope it works so I can get them up!

    Go Trish!!

    Zola - good to hear from you, matey!! WOO HOO @ Bas sitting up! OMG.... it feels like just yesterday that he was born!! What a clever little chappy. LOL @ mixing up Trish and Tanya... I think I used to do that early days too 8-[ And I also mixed up Dinky and Scarlett (I called Emily a different name.... very nordy of me!!). Still... with baby brains, anything can happen!! It must be a scary thought going back to work but I am sure you will be fine. Bas will probably do so well that you will wonder what all the fuss was about! Good to hear you are all going fantastically tho

    I just tried to give Gabby 4 BF's in 2 hours, LOL. Do you think that will boost my supply?? The last 2 feeds weren't very successful... she was just over it and tired. I may have to have a "BF holiday" one day next week where we just lay in bed and do nothing but rest and feed. Sounds good! Might do it tomorrow... LOL.

    Zola, yay on Bas nearly sitting up. LOL @ getting Tanya and me mixed up. I was reading it thinking, Hmm is Tanya going back to work too?? 8-[ I was pretty sure that you had us mixed up though. Hope it doesn't take you another month to get back on here. Fingers crossed that all things go smoothly for you going back to work too.

    Tanya, thanks for that offer, shame I'm not closer hey. Joel's bday is in Oct too. I agree with Deb too, Violets new pics are gorgeous.

    Deb, LOL at having a BF holiday tomorrow. Sounds like a great idea to lay in bed all day to me

    Tehya's cough is getting worse, it's starting to wake her up and she cries after a coughing fit. I'm thinking her throat must be getting sore from it all. Mark and I went to have a look at Harvey Normans at the computers, they are having a sale on for the weekend. Found one I really like for just under $2,000. Not knowing a whole lot about computers though, I'm not sure if this is a great deal or not.

    Just worked it out yeterday that Tehya and I will be at Tresillian for Fathers Day. Mark would probably prefer that anyway, atleast he's getting peace and quiet.

    Noah so nicely decided that the wall next to the computer in the dining room needed redecorating and drew a huge big spiral on it with LAUNDRY MARKER. Couldn't have just used a pencil hey!!! Let me just say girls Thank God for those Chux Magic Erasers. We tried spray and wipe, domestos and neither of those worked then I remembered the little Chux thingies. A great thing to have in the cupboard.


    Nell I hope that your mouth is feeling ok today.


    Take care
    Trish

    Trish - bugga about being in Tresillian for father's day. LOL @ Mark possibly preferring it tho! I bet a bit of peace and quiet would be a fantastic father's day present. Oh no @ Noah drawing on the wall!! Nordy boy. Glad you could get it off tho. I will have to invest in some of those chux thingys for when Gabby is older. A new computer is always good but, yeah, definitely ask a "computer expert" before buying. Maybe if you give Sarah the details, Aaron might be able to let you know if it's a good deal or not?

    We had friends over today with their 5 yo. She was running around with Lucy outside for a while - the dog thought it was grrrreat! Some attention for once. Anyway... the little girl came inside, had a play in Gabby's room then came back into the lounge room - all with dog poo all over her shoe!!!! OMG! My house stunk of it. We quickly whipped the shoe off her and then I had to go around searching for bits of poo. Ick!! Looks like I am going to have to get the carpets cleaned ASAP.

    Haven't been up to much else. Neil has been at the football all day (lucky him). Apparently they want me to go next week. His mates have social club tickets. I haven't been to Kardinia Park since it has been done-up (it's the Geelong Cat's home ground for those of you that don't know what I am talking about) so it would be good to go. Gotta see if Mum can look after the Gabster for the day. It will be the longest I have been away from her. AND I have to get dressed up... hmmm... not much fun when you feel fatter than when you were preggo!

    Guess what guess what..... Zander rolled from front to back \/ Yaaaay, he's been doing it since last night - about 5 times now!

    Yuck at the dog poo on the carpet Deb, not good. You'll feel great getting dressed up Deb & not having to worry about baby spew LOL!! You'll do fine without her - just ring 100 times like I do! Sounds like a BF holiday would be good, I wonder if you have to be BF to do it :-k We have a daddy son thing going on here as well - Zander talks way more to daddy than mummy.

    Oh no at Tehya's cough getting worse Trish, bumma that you can't do anything for her sore throat either. As for the computer, let me know what it is cos Aaron can build a computer from scratch for about $1000ish (depending on what you need). What a bumma that Tehyas first father's day will be away from her daddy, but if it helps, so be it I guess. I'll have to remember as well about the Chux eraser thingys as well for when my little monkey is bigger. As for the Maxi Rider, we checked it out today & yup it does recline & they go from 8kg so Zander should be ok, like I said we're waiting a few weeks to get it but he is 7.9kg now anyway. Yikes at the cost of the dermatologist, hopefully they will have an answer for you.

    With my family Zola I doubt very much that Zander will end up a pro basketballer - remember what a shortie I am?? OMG at Bas sitting up =D> Sounds good about working, but IKWYM about not wanting to miss anything.

    WTG Alex for that weight gain.

    What a great present for Alecia Tanya, she's going to love it. But can you hold off telling her for that long if you're so excited too?

    Went to Target today & bought the extra bits & pieces to make his little Avent bottles into sippy cups (they have 20% of Avent ATM). Soooo we now have sippy cups, spoons & I gave in to the temptation and got some rice cereal. Sooo we are just about set to start solids (just need a bowl), but I think we might still be a few weeks off anyway. Also I wondered if you guys give your bubs a drink of water after the solids? Most of the mums at MG do & they do it with a sippy cup rather than a bottle to get them used to the cup.... So I decided to do that too.

    Sarah - you are lucky! Our Target don't sell Avent stuff It would be handy if they did because I get a discount there. I can only get Avent at chemists or the supermarket (Safeway). Sounds like you are all ready to go with solids! Dunno about the water myself - it's a good question! Hehehe, I don't think you have to BF to have a little holiday in bed! Just as important for bot-bot bubbie's mummy's to rest up too

    Yay for Zander rolling from front to back Very Clever boy (and a proud mummy too by the sounds )
    Yay for specials too, It's great things you actually need are on sale! As for the water in a sippy cup, Sounds like a good idea. I have never done it... well not with rice cereal. When Emily began to sit in her high chair and have meals she always had a cup of water.

    Trish, I really hope Teyha's cough goes away!! Poor little thing! I know what you mean about the drawing on the walls too! Emily drew all over Alecia's bed with a permanent marker a couple of months ago, and all through the car with a texta that I can't get off.

    Deb, Neil saw a great game today , just a shame they didn't win .Ick @ the poo!! eeewwww!!

    Going to look at a couple of houses for rent next week. I am really determined to be out of here soon... it costs waaaay to much in petrol. Even tho the college has discount petrol, they sell it for no profit, but their opening times are 12:30 -12:50 and 5pm-5:15, so only a small window of oppertunity.
    I think Violet was having a growth spurt... I felt like I fed her 1000000 times yesterday... thankfully today was back to normal and she slept through again last night.

    Sarah, a big YAY for Zander rolling over, What a clever boy he is =D> On the drink after solids I usually give Tehya some BB after her solids to wash it down.

    Tanya, buggar about Emily drawing all over Alecia's bed and the car. We really need to remember to hide those damn textas. Good luck on the house hunting. I'm dreadig have to pack up our house to move with 4 kids. Way too much stuff to pack and move.

    Deb, I hope that you get to go to the footy next game. I'm sure you'll have a great time dressing up and getting out baby free. Yuck on the poo, don't you hate it when that happens. Thankfully it doesn't happen to often around here, but then it shouldn't, we have no animals. I guess that's why it p's me off when it does happen. Hope you have a great day on your bfing holiday today. Enjoy it while you can.

    Tehya has started to really babble. You know the whole baa baa gaa gaa sort of thing and not just squeals. It looks and sounds sooo cute. She moves her mouth in the weirdest ways to get these sounds out. I really need to get out the video camera and catch some of it. One day we'll buy our own but atm we have Dad's around here still from Brandon's bday.
    Going to look at yet another house today. I tell you, I'm starting to get sick and tired of trapsing through other peoples homes. I know all of this looking is just making me fussier about the house we finally settle on. Hopefully we'll be in our own home before xmas. I don't know how much longer we can all fit in this shoebox. 6 people in a basic 3 bedda is getting squishy.


    Take care
    Trish

    Who me? Proud of Zander rolling over? NEVER!!! Yuck at the thought of moving Tanya, but it sounds like moving closer to town might be a good thing for you guys. Yay at the sleep through the other night - we would have had one last night except for the whimpers for the dummy ](*,)

    Yay at the babbling Trish, Zander is quite funny turning his tongue upside down in his mouth when he talks! Good luck with the house hunting too.

    We looked yesterday at high chairs so I'm wondering what you guys have? The one we're looking at is a Fisher Price one, it's called something like Infant to Toddler Health Chair or something like that. The thing I liked about it is that it can recline a bit for when the bub is little & not sitting up properly yet. What do you guys think?

    Not much happening here today, just a lazy one so I'm hoping to get some scrapping done.

    Tanya - geez, that's not a lot of time to get your petrol!! LOL Is there a massive queue at those times? I hope you find something to rent that you like (same to you, Trish).

    Trish - Tehya's talking sounds sooooo cute! I am with you on the video camera. I am actually surprised at how little I have got it out for Gabby (considering it sits in the lounge, ready to go!). I had a look at what I already have and it's a whole lot of her sitting on the floor playing with no pants on, LOL. Well... that's what it seems like. I guess it will all be wonderful to see in years to come and I will wish that I had got it out more. I can just imagine how frustrating it must be for you guys in such a small house. We feel cramped in our 3 bedder and there's only the 3 of us! Mind you, if we had another living area and perhaps an ensuite, it wouldn't feel so tiny.

    Sarah - that high chair sounds great. We won't be buying one because we had 2 given to us. They are pretty basic. One of them has a tray that come off so that one will be the one we use all the time. The other one is even more basic so I might see if my sister wants it at her place - either that or it can come out to the garage so that Gabby can sit in it while I play on BB (there will come a day when she no longer sleeps for so long during the day - nooooooo!!! ). Bummer about Zander looking for the dummy at night. That must be a pain. Hope you get some scrapping done today!

    Not much happening today. Neil is in the bad books (again... :roll: ) and I am just too mad to even talk about it because I reckon I could rave on forever!! *inhale* *exhale*

    We are having brunch with friends this morning so that will be good. Then I am meant to go to work. Will see if that happens or not.

    Sarah, we are using Noah's highchair for Tehya. We got it from Babies Galore with some of the money he got for his baptism. It's by Love 'n Care. It's quite nice and boyish too. A dark and light blue check. It reclines and you can also adjust the height on it too. It also has wheels with locks on them so you can move it easily. From memory I think it cost around $180. Good luck getting some scrapping done.

    Deb, remember that Neil is back at work tomorrow so you won't have to even look at him them Hope that your brunch goes nicely.

    We are off to Mums house for a BBQ lunch after looking at the house. It's my neices bday. I still haven't got her a pressie yet. Oh well, my brother still hasn't got one for Brandons bday and that was last month......


    Take care
    Trish

    I wish Zander would sleep more during the day! As you can see my posts arent as regular as when we were TTC & I was working then too!! Norti Neil :smt021 to him!

    How was lunch Trish?

    I am sooo pleased with myself ATM! I have spent just about 2hrs ironing & my mountain has almost disappeared \/ I had a tall round basket overflowing, plus two smaller baskets overflowing too, not to mention the two loads I took off the line today!!!! Yup it was bad, so I said to Aaron he has to look after Zander & cook dinner so I could get it done. So now all I have is a small basket which is NOT overflowing & the stuff that has to be washed which will be done tomorrow. It's sad, but I'm so proud

    Hello - well I guess this will be the last post in August as I'm sure one of the lovely mods will lock it off soon. So everyone will forget about my post! #-o

    Things going OK here. As for the TTC questions, we are just nt going on any birth control, and will just let things happen as they do. So I could be pregnant now for all I know!! Scary thought.....

    Ummmmm - cant think of what else to say. Hope everyone is great and stuff. Busy day tomorrow, so I'm not sure I'm going to get on. Maybe, maybe.

    Babble babble - read the crud I'm typing.

    Well today was the day and he LOVED it!!!!! Jacob got his jumping joey yesterday (boys are calling it the Jacob jumper LOL). He has worn himself out twice in it just today. Popped him in it the first time late this morning just to see how he went. Of course he thought it was fantastic. Later on when we were about to have dinner he cracked it so I thought I'd give it a go and voila happy baby!! \/ Took a couple of pics of him in it so I will get them uploaded tomorrow to his page. I'm still giggling at the look on his face when he was in it - such a cack!!

    Fi - LOL at being the last post! I looked for another thread but couln't find one and this one was still open 8-[

    Sarah - woo hoo on the ironing!! I always get a little excited when my basket is empty. Yay!! for Zander rolling over!!! \/

    Well I'm off to my 2nd fav place - ebay. Need a bit of a shopping fix - well watch list anyways LOL

    Hey everyone

    Well I won't do it again this time...

    Good luck Trish & Tanya! I know you are both trying to find somewhere new to live, so I hope that the perfect house pops up soon for you guys.

    Tanya... that's gotta suck having to time your trips to get a decent deal on petrol so moving closer will have to help out with that. Bloody cars... expensive little buggers. I hope Alecia enjoys her birthday, it only seems like a few months ago that you were planning her last birthday! Geez thisyear has flown!

    Trish, I bet your kids won't know what to do when you find a bigger place. Friends of ours have just bought a 5 bedrrom place after having 2 adults and 4 kids in a 3 bdrm house, and they're stoked I hope Tehya's cough gets better soon too.

    Sarah... YAY for Zander!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's so exciting when they learn a new trick We got Bas the Fisher Price Aquarium high chair. It reclines in 3 positions, has a removable tray with a little insert with divided parts for plate, cup etc, and it comes with this groovy toy that clips into the tray and plays music and has bits they can roll and spin and stuff. Bas seems to like it, and the cover can even go in the dryer after washing so it doesn't take all day to dry

    Fi... you are one very brave woman!! As much as I loved being pregnant, I don't think I could handle another bub soo soon!

    Deb...yuk at the poo! And big smacks to Neil....he really should start behaving himself!

    Nat... don't you just want to kiss whoever invented the jumpers! I managed to get all my cooking done this weekend (fruit, veges, tea and cookies!!) cause Bas loves being in his...just wish he'd stay still enough for some photos though

    Umm.....who'd I miss?? My review doesn't go back far enough...but Hello and hope everything is going well for everyone.

    I think I'm going to take Bas to the pool today....better go see if my bathers still fit 8-[

    Ooh... I've put up (hopefully!) a pic of Bas with Newkie's two that we took yesterday. Jack is soooo cute with Bas, and we just know that in a few months time they'll be getting up to all sorts of mischief
