    Hi!

    Well, we spent the weekend house hunting...we've found a place that we both like - well I love it - it's a big 3 br house that basically the living area and rumpus area are nearly bigger than our unit! LOL! The kitchen is huge as well but as it's so big there's not a lot of outdoor space...there's nice paved entertaining area and then a bit of lawn - enough for a trampoline, cubby and swings but probably not enough to kick a football as such (how many places do these days though?)
    It's 7 houses away from a primary school and a further block away is a playground and bmx track and it seems like a really quite area...dh isn't convinced though and is a bit worried about the whole thing..not so much the house itself but it will be such a big purchase/mortgage and a move thats about 45min away from family/friends etc...BUT, I think we could be really happy there and it has heaps of room in the house for everything! In fact, half of it would be unfurnished when we move in - LOL!
    It needs painting and new carpets and ducted heating put in - it's been a rental - so a bit run down (they smoked in it as well!) but we have the money up front to do that before we move in so thats ok....
    The biggest thing is it's in our price range!!! I think if it had been reno'd it wouldn't so we pretty much know we can make money on it as such...
    Such a big decision though - tell me what you guys think - CRANBOURNE NORTH



    Jen - Yeah at dh's payrise! Woohoo! Ooh I love coldplay! Sorry to hear Beau's a bit sick...No advice on a stroller - we don't use one here yet! Too many kids to push around! LOL!
    Yeah...I wasn't that impressed with kmarts catalogue - I only went to bigw and the target catalogue looks really good as well!
    Glad your trip went well yesterday!!

    Mel - The berwick meet up was good - I got there late though and my kids just wanted to play in the playground thing though so I didn't really chat to anyone other than Cindy!! LOL!
    I could only imagine springvale is way out of our price range! LOL! Yeah at getting so much done in a day! I'd be wrecked! Hehehe!
    Hope you had fun at the playcentre!

    Kel - Yeah that Lily is sleeping better!!! I must say in this cold weather I'm not taking the boys outside as much as I should either...It's so much easier to stay inside sometimes!! We stopped off at the park on the way home yesterday and let them have a run around for a bit which they loved of course...I also find it really hard to take them to the park cos Dylan runs off so fast and tries to run down slides etc...God help me when I have 3 - LOL!
    How cute with the puppy!

    Kaz - Sorry to hear your medication is causing trouble...Poor Pip getting all upset when you left him...just as hard for you too I bet!! I used to have that with Louis when I was still teaching and it was awful...Hopefully it doesn't last long!! Ooh just read your next post - he just mustn't be feeling well...poor little munchkin...hope he's ok soon!

    Erin - Congrats on buying a house!!! How exciting!! How cool is a pre laybe day at Target! I wish! LOL!
    Dylan feeds himself somethings..he's getting to the point where he wants to feed himself yoghurt which can be messy...I usually just strip them down to a nappy so your not forever changing clothes -much easier and if you had a soft cover on your highchair I'd take that off as well...For the amount of time they sit in it it doesn't matter and is a pain to clean...
    You'll know when the time is right to have your next one...there's no rush!!
    Dylan just has 1 day sleep unless it's a short one for whatever reason and then he'll have an extra in the arvo...
    Ooh hope you had a nice reunion with dh!!!!

    Ok...should really do something productive...but..can't...seem...to...leave...the. ..computer...LOL!

    Hey Jan, youre more than welcome to pop in. Hows things going???

    Kristie- i like it, especially the kitchen, it looks huge and the outdoor entertaining area. Doesnt matter too much about the size of the backyard, especially if you have a park or bmk track nearby. Good luck.

    Playdays was good yesterday, tired the cranky pants and she had a decent nap, although was just as cranky last night. She went to sleep at 8pm and woke up at 630 this morning as happy as larry!!! Must have just been having a bad day. we are watching In the night Garden, our morning fav show, it even clamed her down yesterday!

    Hopefully going shopping with my mum today...if she turns up at a reasonable time, always comes at lunch time and then we cant do anything coz olivia goes to sleep after lunch. Doesnt matter how many times I ask her to come early...like she say, she'll run late to her own funeral!!

    Well, have a great day...
    Love melissa

    Hi!

    Melissa, thats my thoughts at the moment...dh is still procrastinating and I hope we don't lose it!!! It really is a big home thats for sure!! Well...prob around 18 sq or so...opposed to our 8sq unit it's a monster! LOL!
    Glad Olivia had fun at the playcentre...gosh I really haven't done much with the kids lately at all - we've so consumed with real estate!! It's crazy! Will be so nice when we settle in somewhere and can relax a bit...
    Hope you get some shopping done!

    As for us - the boys slept in until after 8am this morning!! Woohoo! Off to do the food shopping...I dont' think our food situation has ever been so dire...we've run out of everything! I'm not even sure what to do for brekky! Thats sooooo bad!!! I'm going to be doing the biggest shop!!!!

    Hi girls, gee you've been busy in here!

    Kris, I haven't been taking Ben out as much as we should either. It's just been so cold. I ducked into Big W yesterday and couldn't believe how long the line for layby was still - on a Monday!!!! Only thing I ended up buying was Disney Pictionary and that was for myself
    The house looks like it has lots of room Kris! Perfect for three young boys - good luck

    Mel, I caught In The Night Garden for the first time yesterday and Ben was just mesmorised! He normally doesn't like TV that much, but that show just had him hooked.
    Hope you got to go shopping yesterday.

    Hi jan! Welcome to our group

    Jen, yay on Beau sleeping all the way home!!! You must have been stoked.

    Kaz, I hope Pip has settled down for you. He could have just been feeling yuk. How're your meds going now? Must be hard to leave him at Day Care when he's sooky - poor little guy - and poor you!

    Erin, congrats on the house! Ben doesn't really feed himself with a spoon. In fact, he is so lazy when it comes to food and drink - he often walks over to me or DH with his sippy cup and hands it to us so we can hold it for him! Lazy bugger! He will occasionally feed himself a sandwich or something, but prefers to be spoon-fed by us.

    Kel, I love lab puppies!!! I think pets are great for kids. Ben adores our lab - and he's very tolerant when he gets walked on, ears pulled etc.
    I'm glad Lil is having a good few days. Hopefully it will keep up when your DH goes back to work.

    Us - we're doing okay. Ben is no longer sick. I am dying for his two bottom molars to come through though, they seem to be taking a looooong time. He's turning into such a little character. We've discovered he likes Rock music and will dance to it whenever it's on. He does all these cute hand gestures too and a really exaggerated nod when he wants to say yes. And he understands SO much, it's really unbelievable. Such a little man now

    I had my first hospital appointment yesterday and got my referral for my NT scan. I even got to hear the baby move on the doppler which was very exciting

    That's about it for us

    hello ladies

    Greets Jan, just jump right on in!

    Kris - I love the house! Looks like a similar layout to a friend's house, and hers is brill for everything! And I reckon there's enough room to kick a soccer ball around Good luck!!!!!

    Jen - great news on the sleep!

    Dis - Pip's started nodding too, isn't it funny! he now sits on his chair when I tell him to, stands up and stuff.

    Erin - guess what - I found a pre-layby at target here ! At fountaingate! So we've put the boat-shaped sandpit with canopy on layby for christmas And that's the only thing I've got from the toy sales!!!!

    Mel - good luck with the specialist for allergies (what do you think it is?) and the scan ...

    Us - well I'm at home, having been called by the CC to pick up Pip around 10:30 - we have a docs appt @ 3pm, he has a coughy-sneeze thing and is really sooky. Still waking up every hour ... trev & I are exhausted. But he's asleep now.

    anyhows, will put on a load of washing, hopefully his "sooky sooky la la " shirt will be dry in time for the doc visit

    Hey again....mel, what time is your scan on Monday??? Mines at 130pm. Wow youres has come around quickly. Hope your m/s has gone.

    Kaz- poor pip- although I want one of those tshirts!!!

    Olivia went well at the specialist. She managed to pass the skin ***** test without any allergies come through...which means eggs, nuts, dogs, cats are all clear, although he did say hold off on the nuts. He has requested her to have a yeast free diet though as he thiks that this contributes to her eczema, which in turn contributes to her very waxy ears....he said she has oily skin. he wasnt worried about milk intolerance coz shes not snotty, doesnt have coughs or loose stools or tummy aches. So thats good....I can give back to my mum her soy cheese...yuck!!

    Ok, better get moving while this childs asleep, so much washing to do!!!

    Mel - cotton on baby. We also have a "tired and grumpy" long-sleeved shirt + "I pulled an all-nighter" shirt. Good news on the allergies, yeast will be hard, but dairy OK! woohoo!

    Hi!

    Well...dh has said that we can put an offer on the house on Sat after he has another look and shows his dad...I so hope it's still for sale by then!
    Did the shopping yesterday an spent over $300 on food! OMG!!! But we hadn't been for almost 2 weeks...and that included 2 boxes of nappies...Gosh - our food bills are going to be expensive with another boy on the way as well!!! Hehe. I made Louis a s/w today and he ate his and then went over and finished Dylans as well! Little piggy - and it had heaps of stuff on it - avocado, cheese, tomato etc and they had a bowl of fruit each...must add a glass of milk to it tomorrow! He eats more than me at the moment! LOL!
    Nothing much has been happening...kids are good! Dylan now drags his little chair to the kitchen sink and grabs stuff and from the benches so absolutely nothing can get left out now - little monkey! He's such a terror!
    Bub in tum is well...already started getting bh which I don't quite remember this early in my other p/g...Bubba gives me some pretty good kicks at times though...I love this time in p/g though - a little tummy but not to big and feeling bubs...this is definitely why I could be p/g again! LOL!

    Disgirl - LOL at buying a pressie for yourself! Good on you!! Glad Ben's better now! He sounds just gorgeous!! It's such a nice age...Yeah at hearing bubs heartbeat!! Yeah at having your scan on Monday as well! It will still be so exciting!

    Mel - Yeah at having your scan on Monday! Are you finding out the sex??? With all those movements I think it will be a boy! LOL!
    Well that was good news at the specialist! Hmm thats interesting - I wonder if Dylan has a bit of a yeast intolerance...he gets eczema on his cheeks and has very waxy ears..although in saying that it used to be a lot worse...maybe he's growing out of it? Hopefully the changes will help Olivia though!

    Kaz - Poor pip being home sick...LOL at the t-shirt!! Yeah at pre-layby - how come I didn't know about that?? LOL! I want to get Dylan the cars adventure ride - like a little car that scoots down a ramp and I'm getting bubs a wiggles play centre thing...well, thats the big stuff...there's a million other things I want as well...might have to head down to our local target and suss it out...

    Better get some stuff done...I feel sick though now - I've been pigging out on maltesers...LOL! Chat later!

    Hey ya everybody....
    Gosh Beau is so not himslef atm - I went to the movies last night and he was awake crying for 'mama' at our bedroom door apparently til 8;40 for DH which he is NEVER up til! and he cried it out which he never does(and he doesnt say mama either) and today - wouldnt take his milk or go down for a nap and has just cried it out after the third try at putting him down. Weird?
    He is normally asleep at 6:30pm. Growth Spurt? I hope its not the new Beau! He is happy enough but doesnt want to leave us or something.
    Mel - Thats so good about Olivia's diet, I am so amazed at the waxy ear thing - Beaus are always disgusting....its related to their excema? Really? How, the yeast? Sorry if I am stupid!
    Kris - The house looks like a good place to raise three men! And enough room for the biggest toy lay by in history! Hope your pantry is nice and full now! I think Big w does look better than Kmart - i saw the wooden kitchen and thought that looked pretty cute! Kmart has nothing like that - but there is no big w near us at all.
    Kaz - Hope pip/sooky la la is feeling better.
    Dis - Good luck with your scan on Monday.
    Jan - Welcome!
    I had a big teary today as we flicked our estate agent and have hired a new one - we now owe them god knows how much in advertising fees and have to pay the new agent up front for them. I called 'mum bank' today to help us out - I just feel so helpless atm - I asked Dh if we can have the next round of photos done on a Saturday as I just cant face the picture perfect clean up on my own anymore - especialy when Beau has no nap! Oh and stupid Hi 5 has replaced New Mcdonalds farm at 3:30!!! And Gloria Jeans is shut near me....oh the humanity!
    Ok I am buggered - laying in bed....going to la la land now...
    Goodnight sleeptight everyone.

    Awww Jen - big big hugs!!! I can't imagine how hard it must be with your house still not sold...god I was a mess for the 5 weeks or so mine was on...Don't know if you have any up there but we went through the professionals and they have no sale/no fees and all of the advertising is included in their percentage so we didn't have to pay anything up front...
    Poor Beau as well...maybe he's just not feeling well??? I suppose seperation anxiety can happen anytime but it's hard for you to have to deal with...I hope he goes back to "normal" soon!
    LOL - I know I know...It's sooo bad...I'm going to get in so much trouble with the IL's when xmas rolls over...they always say I spend to much money on the kids (although they have said I could just rewrap old presents so I don't have to buy new ones - wtf??? As if I would ever do that!!!!!)
    Sounds like a good idea to get photos done while dh is around...it is a lot of pressure to have everything perfect when you have to deal with a bubba as well! I soooo hope it sells for you soon!
    Hope you get a good nights sleep!

    Well, sooky sooky la la is very. I'm off work on carers' for the rest of the week - he has viral bronchitis. So cortisone once daily & ventalin 4 times a day. If that doesn't clear up by Saturday, then back to the docs for chest x-ray & worry about bacterial infection. *sighs*

    *hugs* Jen *hugs* horrid estate agents. Hope B is OK, that's what Pip was like on Saturday night

    Kris - wooohooo, fingers crossed for Saturday then!

    Us - well I should go to sleep now cause goddess knows I'll be waking for the rest of the night.

    Dream pretty all!

    Poor pip, I hope it gets better soon. Olivia had to have cort for 10 days and seemed to do the trick really quickly. Hope you got some sleep too.

    Jen- you poor thing, I hope a new agent gets fast results. And beau must have a little sep anxiety too, hopefully that will pass quickly.

    Kris- glad your dh is thinking of popping an offer on the house. it sounds huge. Our house is 11sqrs, a little bigger than your unit. When we finally decide to put on the second storey hopefully it will be heaps bigger with storage galore, so I can buy all the toys I want!!!

    Olivia is home for the rest of the week with runny poo. She had 6 dirty nappies yesterday and the last one burnt her bum and vagina...it was so red...ooh i smell poo now...finish this off...nope just my nose!!! So am lathering her with zinc and caster oil. This morning she did a big wet fart and dirtied her nappy. Sometimes i wonder why I bother working at all. I have to decide what I am doing with work too. I only want to work til the start of October...2.5 months, but sometimes I cant be bothered. Just like the money....dont we all!!

    Oh yeast free diet...mmmm, I think the yeast encourages oily skin and increases the wax production...I could be wrong, that man had so much to say yesterday and was all over the place. So teething rusks have yeast, so does bread, vegimite, mushrooms, vinigared stuff like pickles and olives.

    Oh and yep I will find out what flavour baby I am having, but we want to keep it secret to family and friends. I have to be careful with what I post coz my sil used to come on this site, but doesnt anymore. I know she has another friend who lurks around. If she finds out, I know shes been reading my posts...like she used to. Anyway, better go, might go to Southland thismorning

    Mel - there's some organic rice rusks around, no yeast. Pip loves them! Have you tried moogoo? it is the best thing for nappyrash.

    Well Pip hates the mask thingy for the ventalin. And we found out this morning that my FiL passed last night, now I'm worried that he caught the bug off Pip. *sighs*

    anyhows, time to give more bottle. Pip's not eating at the moment, but he'll have his cows milk, its like he's reverted. poor little chap.
