    Hi!

    Had a huge day trekking into the city to sell tbs at an office building. Mum came and babysat the kids...Poor Dylan missed his whole 11am feed but had 2 big ones when I got home.
    Boys are well - it doesn't even feel like it's going to be the weekend tomorrow - dh is working and then we've got a bbq and on sunday we've got a combined bday party for the 2yo's in the morning and I've got work in the arvo! I'm not sure how I'm going to fit everything in! LOL!

    Kaz - LOl at baby marathon!! He was standing up playing on a fisher price table today for about 3-4 min before he plopped back down! LOL. I think he's just so active cos he's trying to keep up with his big brother! So glad you had a great day out yesterday!! Hope you had fun today as well.

    Melissa - Glad you had fun! Hope you feel better soon...Good luck with the specialists in a couple of weeks!! I must let Dylan have more nudie time...I'm so bad with it - Louis never got much either- I just hate the wee's that go everywhere - LOL! I'm not sure about books...I haven't used them - i'm all for simple cooking until they can eat our food in a few months!!

    Chat later! Sweet dreams!



    Kel - Glad you're well...sometimes it's nice to have a few quiet days!! Congrats to your friend!

    Yesterday we had our mum's group meeting, I took a watermelon to the park. It was so funny, we all sat there with our babies and let them try the watermelon! Lovely walk, but I can feel it in my gluts today.

    Anyhows, time to start the housework!

    Awww Kaz - sounds so cute!!

    Dylan had a great sleep last night - due to his mucked up feeds I fed him at 11.30pm but then he slept nearly 6 hours straight - yeah( and he'd slept about 3 hours before then)!!! It's just such an improvement I can't believe it!!
    I gave him a little bit of butter toast today - had a bit of a munch but wasn't too interested! hehe.

    I've got to do the shopping today so will have to buy him some meat - I just buy chicken breast/steak and then put in the blender...you get less fat in it than the already minced stuff and at least you now whats in it! LOL! I'll probably start giving him some pasta as well. He's been having rice in his veggies for ages. It's so nice when they start eating the families food!! Makes life a lot easier! They really don't eat baby food for very long really though...

    It's going to be a beautiful day in Melb today!! Better get the washing out on the line! Chat later!

    Is it OK to give them fruit like nectarines and stuff?

    Pip just wacked himself in the eye and didn't stop crying until I put a bit of nectarine on his tongue, then he wanted to share mine!

    Kris - good to see you're getting more sleep. I have to say, you have such a lovely, laid-back approach that nothing seems too hard - all the stuff I read that seems hard and awful, you're doing it but in an easy way. So thankyou

    Isn't it a glorious day! I've got 2 loads on the line already, and just came up to get a load of baby stuff - will try the MCNs this arvie !

    Have a great day all!

    Hey,
    Phoebe is well and truly over her measles now. We had a few nightmare nights where she would wake up at all hours wanting to play but now she is back in a routine and I'm loving it coz no more 5-6am wake up she is sleeping in til roughly 8ish. She has just started to fit into 00 clothes YIPPEEEE lol and totally surprised me on thursday when she sat up by herself in the pram. I waited til Steve was home in the arvy to see if she could do it n the floor and the clever little monkey did. We took her to the Paed on Wed for her checkup and he was well impressed by how she has come along-Dr Diplock is a lovely old man who looked after her while she was in SCN and he just couldnt believe how adjusted she is.

    Phoebe love her rudie nudie time. It's been quite hot up here so last week we stripped her down and put her in her JJ outside with a container of water under her. She loved splashing and jumping about in the water, it was really quite cute.

    Mel- I have a picnic blanky I put down for Phoebe it has a rubber back on it and is washable. I have just started giving her chicken. I made a casserole and there was heaps left over so I roughly blended it then froze it in ice cube trays. She gobbles it all down.

    Kaz- Nectarine should be alright. Its a stone fruit like a peach or an apricot and it's ok to give them those.

    Kris- It's probably all that crawling and moving about thats wearing Dylan out lol

    Sorry if I've forgotten anyone, I cant remember what was on the last page lol Steve has started to call me Dory Jnr coz I have a memory like a fish.

    Hey there everyone, bit excited today... Charlie is having prof photo's taken. He's sleeping now as we just had swimming lessons. Far out, today the instructor got us to sit them on the edge, then she held them....we took a few step back & she just chucks them in & down they go LOL I almost missed catching Charlie the first time & he went down a way & didnt bat an eyelid!!

    Kaz we love the Watermelon here too, esp since it's soooo hot already. I cut a big hunk & let Charlie suck on it when it's hot, he loves it. Or I put some in one of thos little mesh things.

    Kristie, I buy the Chicken breast too & just blend with some vegies. I found some small baby pasta they've just gotten up here so have been giving that with some of his vegies - seems to love it as he back eating more vegies now. Think I may try some tuna this week too as I'm running out of ideas.

    We head away for a week on Monday so need to make a heap of food up as Charlie wont eat the jar stuff except the fruit & I don't blame him, yucky.

    Hope everyone is well.

    Thought I'd better post before we got off the page again. Super quiet weekend here, just recovering. feeling much better, although Olivia now has a very clogged up nose. I cant aspirate it with the plunger thingy coz she wont let me, so I popped some euky bear rub on her chest. Hasnt done a great deal. Shes chucked up loads of flegsem so i guess thats the best way of getting it out!!! Pitty half the time its all over me. She threw up on me, herself and the carpet 3 times before I left her bedroom. Oh well, never mind. So I have declaired it National Throw up on Mummy Day. And instead of wasting my perfume, I'll just use o'dur chuck instead!
    Think i'll get the vapouriser out today!
    I started yesterday putting Olivia to bed before she fell asleep in my arms, and we didnt have any crying. The day sleep is harder coz she moves about, but I have the luxurary of her in the harness at night, so she doesnt move. Shes confined to her back, so she was asleep with 15 minutes!
    At the moment I am looking for clothes on ebay, we're up to 0 now. We usually get stuff from her older cousin who is 16months old, but Olivia has caught up to her (shes a little tacker and also a sickly tacker).
    I better go, got some housework to do...then off to Southland with a girlfriend
    Have a good day
    Love Melissa

    Hi ladies,

    Well we have had an horrific few days!! Lily is being a monster. I want to trade this devil baby in and get my beautiful angel back please....has anyone seen her??? The past few days she's been velcro baby to me, not wanting anyone but me and crying at DH when he tries to take her. Yesterdya and today I can't put her down anywhere, not in her cot, or her playgym, or in her walker toy thingo, or even in front of the tv!!! She LUUURRVVESSS tv!! I usually have a tanty on my hands when I turn it off after playshcool! But not lately.
    Last night I was up at 10,12,2,4.30, 5.30 and 7am. And she didn't ge to bed until 9pm. Her bed time is 7ish usually but she just refused to sleep. My DH has been on night shifts the past few nights and I am all alone at night....it seems so much worse at night . He told me to leave her in her cot to cry last night because I was at the end of my tether, so I did. That was THE WORST thing I could have done!! I left her for no more than 5mins before she got hysterical, vomited and almost choked herself. Just as I was about to go in she did it and she scared the ***** out of me. I picked her up and hit her back and she spat it out, looked at me as if to say 'see what you did' and tried for ages to breathe properly. I got her out to the lounge room and was trying to shush her and she kept on coughing and spluttering and then did a huge projectile vomit on the floor. I took her to the bathroom and on the way, another huge power vomit all over me and her. Then she managed to breathe again and started to scream again. I was in tears too saying 'I'm sorry, mummy's sorry' over and over and she took one look at me and cried even harder. I had to calm myself down so she'd calm down. I undressed her and me to my undies and gave her a bath and she calmed down. So there I was on the verge of tears in my undies with Lily in the bath, hehe!
    Poor baby she's just soo miserable. I think its her teeth again, she has a rash under her chin and nappy rash like she had when she got her bottom teeth. She's chewing anything she can get her gums on! I just wish I knew what to do with her I'm going to go insane! I'm going to go to mums for the night tonight so I can get some help since DH will be at work again.

    Ok thats my whinge for the day, I hope you are all having a better time than us at the moment

    Hi!

    Hope you're all well! We're all going well here other than having way to much to do and finding it hard to keep on top of everything!
    The kids are good! Dylans a bit in the wars as he keeps climbing things and falling over. He's standing up all the time now and then thinks he can let go of what he's holding and down he goes...He's toughening up though! LOL!
    I've also nearly taught him to find my nose!! If I can get his attention for 2 seconds he reaches his hand out to grab it!!
    I've given him beef and chicken so far...The first lot of chicken I gave him last night and he had one of his best sleeps ever!! So well see how he goes tonight!

    Kaz - Awww thanks! It definitely makes life easier if you chill out a bit thats for sure! I certainly have my moments and I was definitely more hung up on getting everything perfect for Louis but it really just isn't necessary!! You want to enjoy this time - it really goes so fast...(Hmm...starting to get a bit too clucky I think!)
    I gave Dylan some mango in his little feeder thing today - 4 little cubes of it and he sat there and munched away and it was all gone in a few minutes!!! So nectarine I'm sure will be fine!!! Those feeder things are great because then you don't have to worry about them choking!!

    Tiffanny - Thats fantastic that Pheobe's doing so well!! Yeah!! You must feel very proud!!!
    Oh you just reminded me about the jj in water!! I never did it with Louis - I heard about it too late and then it was cold weather but I really must do it with Dylan - Louis will have fun splashing with him anyway!!! Thanks!!
    He certainly is wearing himself out - although the little bugger has given up his afternoon sleep so he usually has 1 1/2 in the morning and then a nap in the arvo and thats it until he's so exhausted at dinner time he falls asleep on my lap!! So he has a 10min nap then and then up for a bath and back to bed again....A very strange routine but whatever works!!!

    Erin - Geez - that sounds like a full on swimming lesson for a little bubba!! I just got the timetable for Dylan and I'm going to book him very soon. It's a bit tricky with the 2 though - I want to go in 1 hit but it's hard with the 2 kids - I think I'll have to go in with Dylan while Louis sits in the Pram and then get Dylan dressed and then jump in with Louis while Dylan sits in the pram...hmmm hope it works! hehe.
    Yeah on getting prof photos - I bet they're so cute! I'm a sucker for them! We're getting some done on Saturday of the boys - good xmas pressies for the grandparents!! This will be our 5th lot since Louis arrived - whoops! LOL!!
    I'm with you - the jars of food are just horrible!!! Poor Dylan eats the same boring blend all the time - now just with different meat in it...Hmm I must look up when we can give them cheese cos Louis' favourite was pototo with some broccoli, carrot and zucchni with cheese in it!! Dylan seems happy with his pumpkin, sweet pot, zucch, broccoli and carrot blend!! I remember I gave a bit of that to Louis though and he nearly turned orange!! hehehehe!

    Melissa - Glad to hear your getting a bit better. Sorry to hear Olivias still a bit sick though...It's so horrible for them. The vaporiser sounds like a good idea!! Have fun buying some clothes! There's heaps of cute stuff for girls for summer at the moment!!

    Kel - Aww Big hugs!!! I'm so sorry you had such a rough night! Sounds like a bath was good idea for both of you. Please don't feel guilty though - You sound like a great mummy!!
    I also know that crying it out is an awfully hard thing to do. We did it last week with Dyan and it was horrible but it helped us get rid of that night feed which was great. I generally do it for 1min, then 2min, 3min etc as I can't handle him crying for too long. I also spend quite some time in there with him rolled away from me patting his bum of just having my hands on him on my cheek on his. In saying that though if it's teething I suppose there's not a lot you can do and she's probably hurting.
    Have you thought of taking her into bed with you? Especially while your dh is on night shift - might be a way to get some decent sleep??
    Hope you get a better nights sleep at your mums tonight - great idea to go there so you can have some extra help an support!!

    Ok - better get ready for bed - I was up to midnight cleaning!!

    Chat later

    Hi ya'll!
    Well the retreat was amaaazzzing! Lots of Tai Chi, yoga, organic food, beauty treatments and meditation...it was hard to come back to reality!
    That said....I was on the phone for an hour this morning to tresillian as Beau's sleeping hasnt improved at all...I was up about 6 times last night - his two sleeps today he has had no dummy and i am determined to let him cry itout at night now. They say it only takes three nights, nothing can be worse than what he is like at the moment. He isnt even hungry - just unwrapped and dummy out etc etc...
    He is going cold turkey on both! Enough messing around now I think - I have tried absolutely every thing else so.....I am scared but! I asked DH to get up with me and have a cup of tea or something when he is bawling! I am scared too Kel that he will vom too, I think Lil and he must be related with the waking!
    On food - B has had mango but spat it up a bit, I have nectarines there to give him now actually, no meat yet, but I had a book too that said onion and tomato for 6months and it didnt agree with him either...he basically has apple and pear, lots of root vegies, banana...pretty limited
    Ok will do personals next time - just wanted to say I am back in the land of the sleep deprived!

    Hi!

    Jen - I'm so glad you had a good time - sounds amazing!! I'm very jealous!! I'm so going to do something like that as a treat when I'm finished having bubbas!!!

    Sounds like you've got a plan with Beau's sleep - I hope it works for you!!! It should at least help him improve anyway! Dylan still wakes through the night but not nearly as much.
    Sounds like the foods going well also...

    Not much for me today - just getting some work and housework done...kids are well although Dylan seems to be throwing up a bit more than usual today - aahh the joys...

    Hello ladies

    Well, after the vaccination on Tuesday, I've had devil baby too.

    Mum & Dad came down on Sunday night and Monday Mum, Pip & I went first to the OB/GYN and then to find a wedding dress - and I have one!!!!! WOOHOOO! Then he wacked his head on Monday night and was crying heaps, DF wouldn't give him a bottle though (grrr). Vaccination on Tuesday and again more crying in pain, but now he's lost his voice, its pitiful to listen to.
    And now he's crying again, gtg

    Pip now has absolutely *no* voice now. I've called the docs and waiting to see if they are able to see us tonight. It's been getting worse since his vaccination on Tuesday, and now there's a cough as well. I can't even hear him cry in his cot when I'm in the next room with the door open

    B slept for 7 hours straight last night!!!! Yipeeee!!!! He went doen at 7:30 and woke at 2:30, I gave him some water, but he wouldn't settle, so a bit more and a bit of a pat (bad I know) and he slept till 4:40, he was up for the day then but still, this is mega!! He hasn't had that long a stretch since he was 3 months old. No dummy - woo hoo!!!
    On a worse note he has these scary blisters on his bum and creases of his legs bear his crotch (see main thread) I am totally freaked by them, cortisone is not doing anything for him....any ideas?
    Kaz, hope little pip feels better soon
    Kris - yea, hopefully the no dummy has turned a corner for us
    Ok he is yelling gotta go

    Hi girls,

    Well devil baby still lives here....she's not as bad, but still really sooky and grumbly. I went to coffee with a friend yesterday who hadn't met her yet and all she did was whinge and cry. I was so embarrassed in the cafe, it was packed and I could see people looking at me...though alot of people also told me how cute she is . Still no more teeth, but very red sore looking bumpy gums. She's sleeping better too sothat's good.
    DH was home yesterday to help, though he stressed me out more than helped yesterday. He refuses to walk around eith Lil when she's sooking, which is usually all she wants for a few minutes, then you can sit again and sometimes put her back down to play. But he won't do it and 'give her what she wants all the time'. WTF??? She's 7mths old, I'm sure all she wants is a bit of comfort from her throbbing gums, stupid man....ok vent over!
    Lily is getting up on her knees now with her bum in the air, but no crawling yet. No creeping either, she just rolls everywhere! She's sitting up but still wobbly. She can stand up too, but won't hold onto furniture to steady herself and she can't pull herself up either.

    Kristie, Lil loves to grab my nose when she has a bottle too and also nearly scratches out my eyes in the process! Pooor Dylan and his accidents....I guess he'll learn soon enough what he can and can't do! As for the crying episode, I won't be doing it again! I think I'll just have keep on rocking and patting....I have tried the patting in her bed too, but she just kicks her legs and won't relax with me there when she knows I usually hold her, little bugger.

    Jen, I'm jealous of your get away! I wish I could do something like that....mmm, one day! I'm glad to hear that you have managed to get rid of Beau's dum, I'm too scared to try again with the crying. And yayayay that he slept so well for you. Sorry I can't help you with the spots on his bum...

    Kaz, wooohooo that you got your dress, I remember how exciting that was when I got mine....I hope Pip gets better soon poor little monkey.

    Ok gotta make the most of my quiet time and do some study...yay! Not

    Hi All,

    Off the page again. Hope everybody is ok. Hope Lil is not terrorising you too much and you are getting some sleep.. Hope pip is better, poor little tacker. Glad to hear beau slept well for you, and hows dylan, moving around like a champ!
    We have a hens/bucks night tonight, so Olivia is having her first sleep over at my dads. I have to pick her up early tho, so not too much partying for me...hoping to not worry too much about Liv, but she'll be ok. Last night she slept from 930pm til 8am without waking up...sorry to mention it for those who arent sleeping well. Shes doing good, much better now her cold has almost dried up. She is sitting well, still wouldnt leave her tho coz she just falls after a few minutes. She rocks on her hands and knees. No teeth yet.
    Well I have to go, DF has told me that she has a 'spicy meatball' (poo) and he's disapeared into the toilet!!!
    Have a great weekend. Enjoy the weather.
    Love Melissa
