    Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and your bubs too.
    OMG, last night was a killer. For reasons best known to himself Yasin woke up at 4am this morning and refused to go back to sleep. I never get to sleep before midnight so 4m is not my prefered wakeup time!!!! At 7.30am he was still refusing to sleep and laughing at every attempt to settle him so I couldn't cope any more and gave myself a time-out. I just put him in his cot with a couple of dummies and a few toys and went and crashed until 9am when he woke me by shouting for attention. I'm really hoping that I don't get a repeat performance tonight.
    One of my friends just had a baby girl!! I wish I couls see her but she's too far away so I'll just have to wait for photos.
    Bon, wow at Grace's teeth. Yasin is gnawing everything that he can get his mouth around at the moment so I think that he may have one on the way.
    MummyLovesJaykob. I hope you're enjoying your holiday/journey. How is Jaykob travelling?
    Rob, Its amazing how fast they grow isn't it. I found one of Yasin's 0000 onesies that I had forgtten to pack away the other day and it seemed so tiny. Its hard to believe that he used to fit into it (for about a week!!). I used to get so annoyed at those friends of my parents who always said "oooh look how much you've grown" but now I understand and whats worse I actually said it a friend's daughter recently. aaaaggghhhh I'm turning into my parent's friends.
    Iris, what is Alana's web-site url? I can't see it on the first page of the forum.
    Michelle and Michelle, I can't believe that its six months already. Have fun in the next forum, I'll see you there in about a month and a half.

    Dachlostar if you click on the 'www' then you can see Alana's website.

    But it is, www.babiesonline.com/babies/a/alana04

    Actually Kathryn maybe I should get this added to the front page.

    Hi,

    Boy its ages since I wrote and I'm sorry. Snowy, Tegan and everyone else I hope your okay and dachlostar thanks for the really kind e-mail checking on how we were.
    I don't know where the time has gone. Zayed is nearly 4 months now and I just feel like we live in the hospital or at the Drs.

    When he was first born he wouldn't feed so was syringe fed and then would take forever to feed once he did decide to drink and then he stopped breathing and had to be admitted into hospital for observation. He is also in and out for his kidney which only now are they willing to do something. Yesterday we finally found out that he has a blockage in his right kidney and am waiting now to see if I have to bring him home for an operation. I just wish they could say yes or no.

    ANyway i spent the morning in the embassy trying to do his citzenship papers and they made me so mad. First of all they don't take credit cards anymore only cash or bankdrafts. Anyway luckily I had enough cash as they are only open for 1hr twice a week. I made sure I had all the papers in order and had them check as weel and they said everything is fine come back next week. I left and was going to the car when they called me and said I had forgoten something and could I come back. I said oh what is it? She said no please just come back, so I did to be told they needed the arabic birth certificate which on the paper they gave me said wasn't required if I had the english birth certificate. Anwyay they said the rules had changed. Also why couldn't she have told me that on the phone? Arghhhhhhh. Anyway I rushed home to get everything and was with DH and asked him to put everything together so I could just get out and go in, as I was driving well he didn't put the original with the photocopy and drove off leaving me there. I was so mad I could of killed him. Anyway finally he came back and I just made it in time.

    You would think my day would get better but no. We went to Starbucks and I ordered a blueberry muffin which actually turned out to be a banana blueberry muffin and I'm allergic to banana. I now have really bad stomache cramps but luckily only ate a little bit so was able to get home and take my medicine before it got worse, but the stupid waitress argued with me saying but its blueberry. I know that but it also has banana in it and I just wanted to slap her because I wasn't making it up and felt like she thought I was crazy or somthing.

    Sorry for this epic post but I now feel much better and will try and be better with checking in and seeing how you all are. I just find that I am so busy with Drs apointments and then Jassim needs my attention when Zayed is asleep, so I try to spend as much time with him as I can and then the day has just gone.

    I can hear Zayed complaining so better go.
    Take care

    Oh Mel, hugs to you, sounds like you have had a terrible run, hope it is all sorted out soon and the medical stuff is sorted as well.

    Hello girls,

    sorry for my long silence. We flew to NZ to see my best friend 2 weeks ago, then flew to Melbourne last weekend to visit DH's elder sister and husband, who are 11 weeks pregnant with their first (very exciting).

    I am also doing some freelance work and have some very important meetings today and tomorrow, so this will just be a short post - so no time for personals, sorry.

    Haven't been online in March at all I think because the division into 3-6 months is new, isn't it?

    Wolf has been laughing so much recently. It is so adorable. A real person laugh, IYKWIM. It's unpredictable when it will happen (we try and try and try) but when it happens, I could just melt. It is so cute! Wolf is still not rolling onto his back. He was trying for some time and manages to get on his side, but hasn't been trying for a week or so. He has been so good and happy the last few weeks - I can't believe how content he is. Only whinge I have is that he wakes 2-3 times at night still.. hmmm.. my mom says I should give him solids before bed time, my MIL says I should give him water when he wakes. I just ignore all that and just continue breastfeeding him fully. 2 more months before I want to try other foods/drinks.

    Hope everyone is well. I hope I'll have more time when I get back to Germany to post more regularly again.

    Oh yeah, and my hair has started to fall out like crazy .. not impressed...

    Snowy its funny that you say your hair is falling out. Is that normal after having a baby? Mine has been falling out heaps over the last 3-4 weeks and that is not normal for me. I have extremely thick hair, so I'm not concerned about going bald. But it was a shock.

    Dachlostar Alana's hair is amazing. She gets so many comments about it. I have spent all my life people commenting on how thick my hair is, so I imagine this is just the beginning for Alana. Poor DB is balding so of course he always gets the comments "she has more hair than her Daddy", "she didn't get that hair from you"!

    Mel I hope Zayed kidney problem can be sorted out. I know how draining having to go to the hospital is. When we found out about Alana having CF we were at the hospital all the time. Now its once a month. Hopefully we will be able to go a little bit longer next time.

    Embassys are the biggest pain in the ass to deal with. I remember when my SIL was working out her citizenship for here and I accidently messed up one of the forms, I tried to ring the embassy to get a new one and I just kept going around in a circle on a voice message-press 1 for this, press 2 for that!

    Alana gets weighed tomorrow and then she has her Paed appointment on Monday. So fingers crossed Alana has put on heaps of weight!

    Yeah my hairs been falling out too although it seems to have slowed down a bit now. I'm thinking of cutting it short so it doesn't seem so much. I think that its not going bald so much as going back to its pre-preg state. I read somewhere that all the HGH when you are pregnant makes your hair grow faster and thicker so when it leaves your hair goes back to normal and also your fingernails.
    Snowy, I hope your meetings go well. Yasin still wakes at night but it doesn't really worry me. He'll grow out of it eventually. Its when he won't go back to sleep that I find it hard to deal with.
    Mel, I hope that you get all your paperwork finished soon and that the hospital can give you a definate answer about whether Zayed will need an op or not. It must be a killer not knowing what is going to happen.

    The crawling saga continues at my place. Yasin yells because he's frustrated that he can't crawl so I pick him up and then he yells to be let back down onto the floor so he can keep trying, then he gets frustrated again ........ I try and distract him with toys, reading to him etc. but it never works for long, he's so stubborn already.

    Hi,

    I have spent the whole morning running around picking up Zayeds ultrasounds, x-rays and reports as I was able to get him an apt at 6pm tonight so see the specialist so hopefully we will know something.

    I remember with Jassim my hair would just fall out all over the place and my hairbrush was just full of hair. ITs normal, so dont worry and what dachlostar is right. You don't lose your hair when your pregnant, so you lose it all now.

    Zayed is a happy baby thankgoodness and Snowy he rolls onto his side too, so I don't think it will be long before Wolf will be rolling over. I remember Jassim when he first rolled over he did all day and then nothing for a week or two. ITs funny how they learn something and then decide not to do it again.

    Anyway I have lots to do and photocopying of reports so I can fax them all to my Mum and she can get an opinion in Aus for me as well.

    Take care

    Eliana was babysat last night (by DP's mum) & we went out for the first time by ourselves!! Neil Diamond was awesome - the best concert I have ever been to & can't believe how close I was to him - it was an amazing experience & he sang for over 2 hours without leaving the stage.
    Needless to say all my worrying & planning in case anything went wrong at home was laid to rest as she was an angel for her Nan. I've started her on some Farex this week (the baby not Nan) & she loves it.
    Sorry no personals - I'm online between tv shows!!

    Hi girls

    I lost so much hair in the last month I was seriously considering something else as the cause, but now that you all have the same I feel more relieved.

    Good luck with Zayed's appt Mel, hope they work everything out.

    And hi to all.
    Cheers Michelle

    hurrah for some peace and quiet!!! Yasin is asleep and I couldn't be happier. In the last couple of days he has gone from chatty to just plain noisy. He loves the sound of his own voice. If he's happy he yells, if he's cross he yells, if he's frustrated he yells, if he's amused he yell's, if he's angry he shouts, if he's tired he screams, if he's bored he blows really loud rasberries and even when he goes to sleep he makes a wierd moaning noise until he's deeply asleep. Its doing my head in!!! I hope he grows out of this one really quickly!! I know that he's just trying to communicate but after a while it hurts my ears. I love feeding time because he can't suck and vocalise.
    I'm beginning to feel like a single parent. DH has been so busy for the last week that he literally comes home only to sleep, shower and change his clothes before leaving again. :-({|= He wants to go to some Afghani function tonight. I'll probably go (even though I hate them) just so I get a chance to see him ](*,)
    Mel, I hope that Zayed's appointment went well and you got some answers.
    Melissa, I'm glad you enjoyed the Niel Diamond concert and Eliana was good for her Nan.

    Hi dachlostar,

    my DD just started to vocalise like yours ... I understand where your coming from at first it was amusing ... now Im sure she keeps the whole neighbour entertained .... DH thought I was strangling her the other day and came rushing in ... only to find DD happily vocalising at the top of her lungs in her cot .... what keeps me up and worried more are the moans she does now in her sleep !!!! :-({|= oh well fingers crossed this DOES pass quickly ....

    Oh and im going back to work next week so DD decides to start waking thru the night .... hasn't happened in over a month but just when I feel able to get back to work she decides to wake every 3 hours during the night !!! again :-({|= hope this DOES not continue !!!
