    Higirls, sorry I have been MIA for a few days, just really busy with uni and stuff. I will try to remember what you have all written on the previous page...

    Disgirl, I am studying Early Childhood Teaching. I sooo can't wait til it's over. I just have this prac, one assignment and it's done! I am leaving Lily with Mum and DH when he's off work (he does shift work). It is so hard even though she's with people I trust. I call every day once or twice even though I know she's ok and I am hanging to get home by the time lunch rolls around!!
    How cute that Ben loves the water so much. I haven't tried Lil at the beach yet...but she absolutely loves a deep bath and often goes under the water, only to come up with a smile...

    Mel yep, we have had some tanties too, I can see that we will have some doozies in the future! She's already so good at them, she throws herself backwards and if I'm not careful she lands with a thump on the mat! Only done that once though. I have wisened to her wiley ways, LOL!

    Jen, yep I have noticed big difference in our relationship too. We just don't get much us time anymore and everything is rush rush rush when we do. There are so many other things to do and unfortunately time for us as a couple seems to go by the wayside. We haven't DTD in....gosh I don't even remember when, about a month or so? We tried to the other night but Lil's got a DTD sensor and wakes up when we try It's happened about three times now...

    Kaz, Lily often falls asleep right up next to the cot bars too, with her arms or legs hanging out, and her blankie up over her head, it looks so cute! As for feeds, we are having three solids feeds, and three or four bottles a day. She's off her bottles lately though and often only drinks 1/2- 3/4 of one. She also has about 100ml of water.

    Wow, Kristy, what a marathon post! You did well replying to everyone! Glad to hear everyone is well. And that Dylan is sleeping well again. Yep, prac is going ok, not as hard as I thought, but alot of work. It is hard to get back into the swing of being at work again.

    Ok my princess is calling, gotta go, I hope everyone else is well.

    HI!
    Kaz - B is still on four milk feeds, three naps and three solid feeds a day...He is tired thru the day still and I cant string him out yet to two naps so I am just keepin' on, he is a happy bugger so I must be doing something ok! If what you are doing works...dont mess with it!
    Kris - Nice to hear from you! What is it with bubbas and bins? Beau is forever trying to pull the bin liner out of the lid too!
    Dis - Cling-ons are tough! Hang in there baby it will pass, can you put him in a bjorn or something so you can still do something?
    Kel- Ditto on DTD !! How do they know??????
    Us - B has been so good today, he woke up from his first nap at nine and I was meeting a friend for coffee at 11...but he was great til about 1pm, what a good boy! He is whinging now tho and refuses to have a nap even tho he has been rubbing his eyes non stop!
    Anyway, its our wedding anniversary today, so hopefully we will all go out for dinner...

    Hi!

    Hope you've all had a great weekend!! Mine's been really full on!
    Dh has been away...so fri night my brother watched the kids while I had a bs party - Louis was up until 11pm!! Then cos he was awake I showed him some xmas lights on the way home! Sat we had to do a delivery and then my mum and my aunty, nieces, nephews etc all came over for fish and chips! It was great for the company but again - it meant the kids were in bed after 9pm!! I was going to spend the day at home today but my Nanna came down - she's 92 and not that healthy anymore so dragged the kids out again for a visit. Had a very lazy afternoon though which has been nice and managed to get the kids in bed by 8pm tonight!! Michael's home tomorrow afternoon so that will be great - I miss him!

    Kel - Wow at Lily going under the water and loving it!! Thats great. I put Dylan under the water at the swimming pools and he was ok but I wouldn't say he loved it - LOL! Louis loves it though...
    Oh no at the sensor going off when your about to dtd!!! That would be frustrating! It's so important to make the time for each other though!! I bought a gorgeous red & black slip the other day!! hehehe. He's still talking about it...!!! It was good too cos it hid my jelly belly! LOL! Nah but even just making the time to talk and pay each other attention is so important. It's when you don't that you end up having silly niggly arguments and stuff...
    Woohoo on the great sleep!!! Hope she keeps it up for you!

    Jen - Happy Anniversary!! Hope you have a great night!!

    Hi Kaz, Melissa and anyone else I've missed!!

    Chat later!

    Wow its pretty quiet in here....
    We had a pretty average anniversary - I have been super teary lately and our anniversary was no exception unfortunatley, but we went out on saturday night to my work's xmas party and I got very tipsy before we even got there! DH left early to get home to releive the babysitter as she had to work early the next day (bummer). But all was good and it was nice to go out as grown ups (first time since)
    Kel - that is so awesome! How good is it sleeping? I know we miss it but once you have it again its too good to be true! Hope it continues. thats great you havnt done any control crying or anything xxx
    Kris - thats great you have been doing so much Xmas socialising! And the boys too! You are so right about the making time for each other...DTD is becoming a rarity around here! We broke the drought on the weekend tho thankgod, go the belly concealing nightie!
    Kaz - thanks for the anniversary wishes!
    B and I are doing great, he has been missing his arvo sleep regularly now which is a bit of a killer, from around 2pm til 7! Its a bit of a whingefest at the end - he is in the hallway at the moment playing with my favourite black suede heels that are there form Saturday night when I snuck in at 2am...he is quiet tho so I dont mind!
    I made a big layby at Kmart today of lots of toys for him for Xmas (I am late starter I know) - he test ran them and seemed to like all the noises on the books and toys but I am sure he will like the wrapping paper better...
    Ok should go and rescue my heels!

    Hi!

    Jen - Sorry to hear your anniversary wasn't as great as you'd hoped - thats great you got a night out though on the weekend!! It is fun to escape every now and then! LOL!
    Dylan misses that sleep all the time and it drives me nuts but I can't make him go to sleep!! and we're usually too busy for me to lie down with him to really encourage it...
    Yeah at your xmas shopping! How fun is it?? Such an exciting time!
    Hehe - they always want to play with the things they're not supposed too!

    I've been having trouble with Louis being nasty to Dylan at the moment - it's only started in the last couple of weeks but he's been hitting him really hard on the head and then I caught him before standing on his leg!!!! OMG!!! I've been sending him to the door and taking toys off him but he just doesn't get it...I was so made the other day I gave him a bit of a smack on the bum - but then realised how silly that is because I want him to stop hitting!!!! Sometimes it's hard though - I was brought up in a family that smacked all the time so I think when you get angry you just go back to what you know - I don't know if that makes sense??? Anyway - its an effort to not do as my mother did (It wasn't bad or anything but just not the way I want to do things...)

    anyway, enough of my writing rubbish - hehe - I'm waiting for dh to get home as I have a party to do tonight and I'm really nervous he won't get home in time...I've even resorted to asking my Dad to come over if he's not going to make it...I hope he makes it in time...Dad won't have a clue what to do with the kids...

    HEy,
    Just a quick one from me...just got 4 fillings, so am going to relax
    Olivias bottom teeth are sharp...so does that mean they are coming through, or will they go up and down til they decide to come out? She wont let us near her mouth and last night she was awake crying every half hour or so until I put her in bed with us around 2. Her poos yesterday were super watery. Other than that, shes ok. We had our last swimming lesson and have re-enrolled her for next term. Oh and the Christmas tree has been a big insentive for her to move across the lounge...
    Well take care,
    Love Melissa

    Hi!

    Wow - where is everyone?

    We had a huge day - took the kids to see the Wiggles!! It was a great show and I'd highly recommend to take the kids - maybe next year?? Dylan did really well considering he'd hardly slept! Loved all the lights and music and Louis just had a ball!!!

    Melissa - Wow on getting 4 fillings - big hugs! Yeah at Olivia having a tooth through - doesn't sound like it will go back down now!!! Woohoo! Yeah on her starting to move also!!

    Dh and I had big arguments last night and today which was really awful considering he'd just been away...I think we're just both tired and cranky...made up tonight though so all is well!!! You need to vent every now and then!!

    Better get some sleep - chat later!

    Ouch on the fillings Mel! Oh goodness, how much is mini-moo moving now? Is she crawling? Rolling?

    Kris - *hugs* yes, venting is needed sometimes. DF & I have had a few D&M's lately which is good. Wiggles! Goodness! I know that Pip loves watching them on teev .... Not good on Loius I think that all of us will find ourselves doing things our parents did and we said we'd never do - it's when we recognise that we are doing that and stop ourselves that we show our strength. Even if we have to stop ourselves every day! *hugs*

    Us - Ummmm well. No more constipation. I think the poor lad is over it - the pumpkin/peas helped it all out I think. He's very close to crawlling, he's moving forwards without rolling. Not to the Christmas Tree, but everything else! So I've just finished moving everything off the floors and have the lounge/dining room ready for the boy, but they are polished wood floors. *shrugs*
    (cause we're renovating, DF has a habit of just dropping assorted tools etc around everywhere, I put all his tools away, he's going to be so stuffed trying to find them on the weekend!) And I feel so much better knowing I can actually clean easily!

    It's our MG Xmas party on Friday, I'm hosting it (doh) but it can't be upstairs where the christmas tree is, cause you have to walk through a construction zone to get here. Downstairs it is - nice & cool there too.

    Anyhows ladies, have a lovely day!

    HEyho,
    Survived yesterday, but my fillings feel weird and as a consequence I cant have anything too hard..it hurts too much, so no doubt that will aid in my weight loss!!!! Although i tend to eat up after stuff like this!!! I have lost 6.5kgs in just over 3 months and I feel good and actually I look good too...its nice when you can say that about yourself!
    Livvys teeth, well the right bottom one is still there, so we have a tooth, yay. She has the biggest teething rash on her face..so much drool. I put some barrier cream under her chin and a bit on her cheek, seemed to do the trick. As for the movement, she doesnt really crawl properly, but shes determines, so gets everywhere and is pulling on stuff. We got a safety gate off ebay yesterday, now I need the motivation to clean the area we have for her. Most of its DFs stuff...xbox, cds, laptop, soundsystem. I'll do my best and he can do the rest when he has time (flat out working..self employed, Christmas rush).
    Good to hear from you Kristie, sounds like you and the boys had heaps of fun at the Wiggles. Oh no on Louis smaking up Dylan. I never really thought about smaking and trying to teach not to smack..iykwim. When I grew up we got a tap on the hand or bum, that was about it..so it bring me to think about how to discp,line Liv. I worked in a Child Psychiatric unit where they did all the time out chairs and "you NEED to ...." It was good training. I have no Idea how I'll do it, suppose I will just wait to I need to do something.....sorry about the rambling.
    Kaz, have fun at MG party, we have ours next week Glad Pip isnt choced up anymore....nothing worse.
    Hello everyone else, i hae to go and settle the girl for a nap.
    Take it easy
    Love Melissa

    Hi!

    Well we've had no hitting so far today so thats good news...I do think it's a lot worse when he's tired and we've been really busy etc...
    Dh just messaged me that he's going to be away this weekend also..GRRRR!!!! I feel like a single mum at the moment!!! It's all just too much!!!

    Kaz - yes it's going to have to be a very conscious effort not to end up like my Mum - LOL!!! You'll all get used to baby proofing the house very soon by the sounds!! Enjoy your mg xmas on Fri!! Your brave for having it - wait until they're all running around and you may change your mind! hehehe.

    Melissa - Sorry to hear your fillings are giving you trouble - wow - what an effort!!! Thats so good that you feel great about it as well!!
    There's so much to think about when the kids get bigger!!! I try and read up as much as I can to make sure I'm doing the right things...I use time out with Louis - I have for about a year I think! He goes to the back door for a min or 2, then he says sorry and we have a big hug!!

    Better get some stuff done - I'm being so slack - I haven't achieved anything at all but it's the first day I've just been at home for ages...maybe I should just have a rest! LOL!

    Chat later!

    We're off the page again.....
    The moo has settled down with her teeth, when I can get a look in her mouth I can see the tips of the teeth> she has very dry skin/rash still on her face/chin, but its getting better with sorbalene. Over the past 5 or so nights I have been putting her to bed fully awake...previously she would fall asleep in my arms....we are having ok luck with it, although it does take a while for her to sleep. She rolls and rolls andgets stuck, but eventually settles. And I have been doing it too with her afternoon nap. Just thought I'd try some sort of routine, but am still pretty flexible with what she wants.
    Shes dropped a bottle, so its 3 bottles and 3 solids and tonight she had a bowl of mince and vegies and cheese and didnt gag like usual.
    Me, I have felt crap since the fillings and havent eaten properly, but tonight I had pasta bol and have already thrown some of it up (sorry tmi). Have felt sick all day. Am hoping its just a bug, dont think I am preggas coz I am still on the pill...but you never know. If I dont feel better tomorrow I will get a HPT and see whats the go.
    Hope you are all well and bubs are going well too.

We are good, LIly is aalllmmoossstttt crawling and is getting very frustrated with herself when she can't figure out how to move herself, hehe its so cute! She's face planted the floor a few times trying to launch herself forwards though, ouch! Ok gonna go, I hope all is well.

    HI girls!! I know I'm a bit of a stranger in here these days but i do read whats going on in here now and then! I cant believe theres munchkins with teeth and crawlers and all!!

    Charlotte has been comando crawling for a while now but has just started to prop herself up on her bub now and i will walk out of the room for a second only to go back in and find her on the other side of the room and sitting!

    I had her 8 month check the other day and she is a monster compared to her sister. She is 9.1 kg and 71cm long! Her big sis is only 11kg! She is getting very heavy to carry now, cant wait untill she is helping out and holding on when i pick her up! Dylan is definately a light weight compared to chacha Kristie!!

    I have a question to those of you in here who are formula feeding??? Are you still doing a night feed? I was told by my MCHN to stop charlottes one but its the one bottle she scoffs down.
    Also - have you all started giving water in sippy cups yet?

    OK, off to bed now

    Heys Cindy,

    Pip only has 3-4 feeds a day, about 240mls each.

    8amish, 11amish, 2pmish and 7pmish. If he misses his solids at night, then sometimes an 11pmish feed. That;s it. Solids at midday and 6pmish.

    And yeps, water in sippy cup, it's been warm lately. Plus he has teeth - need to rinse them before bed!
