    Morning all

    Just thought I'd pop in for a quick hello before I head off for work. oh... I GOT ANOTHER JOB!! I'm so excited. I went for the interview yesterday morning and they called me yesterday afternoon and offered me the job. Only now I have to hand in my notice this morning at work (YIKES!) and madly rush around organising childcare. They want me to start on Monday, which is really soon, but excellent! SO stoked

    Fake tree here Jacci. We had to get a new one a couple of years ago coz our kitten jumped into the middle of ours too - and broke it! Not to mention but his teeth through about half the decorations.

    I think Josiah has an ear infection - he keeps grabbing his ears. He's not upset when he does it, but it's unusual for him. I'll see how he goes today, and if he's stil doing it, I'll take him to the doc tomorrow.

    Anyway, that turned out to be all about me...OOPS, sorry. Hope everyone has a fantastic day.

    Bel

    The docs just before delivery said average size for 33weeks was 1.8-2kg, he was nearly 2.3kg so surprised everyone

    wow congrats Bel - hope it turns out to be a fantastic work move

    I was speaking to one of the other guys at work yesterday (as I've mentiond before, I work for an Outsourcing company, he does same thing as me but for different clients). He said he needs to offload a client (I have some spare time on my hands, so said to get his people to speak to my people) but also that they've been in contact with a client in the UK then put in brackets (fancy a trip?)

    Who knows, I might get a work trip to the UK - as long as Jen & Jordy can come along - we'll probably offer to pay - she has heaps of friends there, so could probably get free accomodation too, depending on where the client is. Doubt it'd happen, but can always dream

    Here I was wondering why you guys had been so quiet lately and only now realised a new thread's been started. D'oh!

    Going to catch up on where everyone's at. But have to ask a qsn: does everyone else feel like their babies have suddenly become heaps more tiring? Charlie will not sit still, gets bored really easily now and constantly wants attention. He's become obsessed with wanting me to look at him all the time, too! He is a wiggle bum when he's on my lap, rolls across the room if left on the floor, grabs at anything within reach, which means I can't eat with him on my lap anymore, and throws his body around when I'm carrying him.

    It's only been the last week or so, but I'm always exhausted now!

    its a big ask, and no idea if it'll happen Nickers.

    Jen has avocado next on the list to try, so I guess its okay - she researched when certain things should be tried and has dates for when to try certain things... that doesn't have anything against it


    And sushee, I think theres a few of us who know how you feel !!

    Congrats Bel, thats great news, yikes at the quick start though, hope u can get everything organised.
    Holly kept grabbing her ears too & wasnt upset, was just from teething (6mths).

    Hey Theresa, not sure if its co-incidence or not, but each time I've given Holly apple (4-5times) her excema seems to flare up worse, gave her some last night & it was soooo red at 4am when she woke & felt warm to the touch. She just screams when I put cream on, hates it. Much less red this morning but still think it's spread a tad. Haven't tried anything other than apple & rice cereal, might lay off the apple for a while & try again later. Then again, maybe it is formula, who really knows. Also MIL said her kids all had excema until 1yo.

    Abs, a friend has her tree on top of their ent. unit so out of the way of her 2 kids, great idea but think ours is too big. Holly will be crawling by then & her & cat will most likely be into it, gonna be interesting, hehe.

    Hehe Sush. Yep I agree, I've gone back to my afternoon nanna nap, hehe.

    Holly said 'dada' yesterday, DH home from work sick too (cold) so we both heard it through the monitor, hasn't said it again though.

    See the solids link on page 1, it has the recommendations from W.H.O.

    Hello everyone. Sorry I've been MIA but I've been really busy trying to organise this slideshow for my dad's 50th, and I am finally finished it so I will have some more free time to jump on here and be a better cyber buddy.

    We went away overnight on Friday night and my mum baby sat Declan, he did really well & slept long for her than he does for me go figure. We had a good night away but I was happy to get home to my boy on Sat arv. We went to the movies, out to dinner & caught up with some friends at the casino.

    Declan is sitting up now by himself (gets really floppy when he's tired though) and we have started solids. He is loving it. Its hard to think he'll be 6 months tomorrow (that means we are going to get his vacs done too).

    Sorry about the us post but I can smell someone needs a change.

    Nickers- Charlie loves Avacado! he hates bananas wont eat them the 3 or 4 times i've tried him on them. Thats good that Nixon is eating whatever he is given.

    Shell - Glad your DH was home to hear holly say Dada.

    Charlie and i went swimming today, he loved it - we are on our third lesson - you put his head under the water and when you pull him out he giggles - it is soo cute!

    Hi Everyone,

    Good luck with everything Christy and LV's to you!

    Amy... Sounds like you have been busy, and happy 6 month bday to declan.

    Jacci... Abbey still looks surprised when she goes under the water, but is starting to like it more. And we have a fake tree here,less mess,but we used to get real ones when we were kids, it was fun going to pick it.

    Shell... Apple is one of the safe foods on the list I have, but it could be what is causing it, but it could be just food in general, the nurse warned that Abbey would probably have a flare up when we started solids. I would also look at trying a different cream if she screams when you put it on. Abbey gets grumpy after a while when i am putting cream on, but not like she is in pain. I had to keep trying different creams until we found one that worked for her. I would also give a cortisone cream a try,in the long run I have ended up putting heaps lessof that cream on her then others because it works that much better. We are using a sigmacort ointment atm. oh and Yay! on holly saying dada

    Sush... I so know what you mean. Abbey is being so exhausting atm too. I just can't leave her alone or she gets into mischeif. We arelooking into getting her a playpen.

    abs..yay on the possibility on a trip to UK. sounds like fun!

    Bel..COngrats on the new job.. hope it is all going well. hope Josiah doesn't have an ear infection.

    Quick update on us: Abbey had her first official swimming lesson this morning which went really well. She was the youngest there, but still had lots of fun. We also had her 6 month checkup. She is now 6.72kg, 64.5cm long, HC of 42.8cm. She has only put on 400g in 2 months but the nurse isn't too worried, she was good with us not starting solids yet and gave us a heap of info on introducing solids to babies who may be prone to allergies. We are going to be starting solids in the next week or two. She still is getting up on her hands and knees and hands and feet but can't quite work out how to move forward. She can sit up for ages, unless she tries to reach too far.

    Wow long post.. think i am all caught up now lol Hi to all I have missed

    There was a little girl at raquet ball today - she would be about the same age as Abs & Jens - Jordy. She was up and crawling around everywere - she looked soo little to be doing it. She tried to attack charlie, she was a really trying hard to get him. Can't believe how young some of them crawl!

    Well my two favourite people are asleep on the couch so i might go put the little one to bed and the older one can stay there! means i'll get more room!!!

    I will be off line for a few days after thursday - Were polishing the floor boards this weekend!!! YEAH YEAH YEAH - looks horrible without them done. atleast when charlie crawls he won't get big splinters!

    Hope you all have fun.

    GOOD LUCK KRISTY!!!!! Hope all goes well.

    Jac

    Awesome on bubs having their swimmin lessons & liking it.

    Thnx Amanda, well today is the first day I've been able to rub cream in several times a day without her screaming. Appears to have improved too. I didn't feed her any solids last night, but a little pumpkin tonight. It is much less red today & looks like it might be on the mend, yay. Also cold seems to be on the way out, didnt go to work/childcare today & glad coz we've both recovered a bit more. We'd like to get a playpen too. Holly's been getting up on hands/knees several times/day now so dont think it'll be long here either.

    GL & gentle LV Christie.

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry I have been MIA for a while, I had Tyron's naming ceremony on Sunday and Mum was here from Kalgoorlie, than my car got broken into and I had left my purse in it (which I never do!!) so I have been running around trying to get new cards etc..

    I will put some photos up from Sunday on his website in a minute!!

    I haven't had a chance to read what has been going on, but I will do.

    Also, final call for Secret Santa people, if you would liek to be included please let me know otherwise I will send out people's list today.

    Sushee, I don't have your details, did you still want to be in it??

    Hoep you are all well!

    Oh Lisa cant wait to see some piccy's of Tyron in his outfit!
    looking forward to getting my SS!!

    my gf had twin girls yesterday! We are going to visit this afternoon. It will be funny seeing how little they are because one was (Gemma)5p 13 & the other (Teagan)4p 15 so the smaller is samish size to Nixon. i havent gotten to visit a mum & bub in hosp for a very long time due to either being away at the time, in hosp myself, or another state!
