    Hey thanks Kris- I would love to come to your party at the end of the month. Was just thinking that you might not be around for it or you wont be far off!!! Would be good to catch up. Let me know details a bit closer to the day.



    We slept better last night, so hopefully that means a happy day!!! Hoping to find my group certificate to send to the accountant. Will also get onto the hip clinic at Monash.

    Oh Kris- do u have to change hospitals now?????

    Ok, hello everyone else hope ur well

    Kris - darn, I'd love to come, I want more enjo! Might have to catch up with you before so I can place an order.

    Mel - DH doesn't drink water, so thinks Pip won't either. So he gives juice in water - prolly about 20mls in a cup of water. Unless I don't pay attention! Then its more. Erk re the MCHN being new - good luck with the clinic.

    Ladies - Maz is having a huge second-hand sale if you're interested in cloth nappies.

    Us - well DH has had a few poos from hell (hehehe) and Pip's being a holy terror. Non-stop running! Sunday night DH put him to bed on the dot of 8pm and Pip didn't understand why he was in bed early .. wouldn't settle. Last night I played with him a bit and he wouldn't settle ... arghhhhhh.

    Have a great day all.

    Hi!

    Mel - No worries - shall do! Will be great if you can come! Yeah on a better sleep last night! Nup...I'm still booked in at the Angliss - just hope this labour isn't a quick one or I'll be in trouble...have to get dh home from work and my mum over to watch the boys and they'll both be probably an hour + away from me and then another 30min to the hospital! I'm sure it won't happen that quick but it is a bit of a concern! LOL! Especially when you don't want to get everyone out for a false alarm - I'll have to be pretty sure! I was last time though so I'm sure it will all go smoothly! Was already getting painful bh last night 15min apart so pre-labour is really starting to kick in...At least we're settled now so it's not such a big deal...

    Kaz - We're all mucked up here with daylight savings as well but in a postive way really! I didn't get the boys into bed until 8pm but Dylan slept in until 8am and Louis slept in til 9.30am! OMG! I do need to start winding it back to 7pm bedtime though...Dh and I were up to midnight so we need to sort ourselves out as well! LOL!
    Hope Pip settled down for you soon with the time changes...
    I wish you could come too - just ran out of weekends to hold it! Would be great to catch up another time though...

    How's this? Was preparing dinner last night and Dylan sat down near me with a barrel of monkeys (game) for over an hour just putting them in and taking them out and playing whatever little game it was he'd made up! I couldn't believe it! Here I was thinking he had a shorter attention span....LOL! Was very nice and peaceful!
    Cold here again in Melb...meant to warm up for the weekend though which will be great!

    Better get some stuff done! Chat later

    Well I'm back at work from a lovely extra long weekend

    Kris, it's funny you mention that Dylan might be a little OCD - I often say that about Ben He lines all his toys (pegs, people, cars) up so that they are exactly in a line. Gets very frustrated if they aren't just right!
    Ben's also really good with his colours too. Orange and yellow (wewwo) are the two he ALWAYS gets right, but blue (goo) and red (dead ) rate pretty highly too. I'm LOVING how he's learning so many words a day. He's just really fun to be around right now.

    Mel, if you contact your employer, they should be able to get you a copy of your group certificate if you can't find it.
    I don't give Ben juice. I tried the baby juices once, but he wasn't that fussed, so he just has water and milk.
    When's your appointment with the hip specialist? Hope all is well with Olivia.

    Kaz, we were really lucky with daylight saving. Ben didn't have a day nap yesterday so I put him to bed at 6:30. He fell straight asleep and slept until 5:30 this morning. I LOVE our blockout shutters - I think they help eliminate some of the daylight confusion.
    Are Pip's poo's from teething? Ben's had some shockers lately too.

    We've had a really good few days. I thoroughly enjoyed having four straight days at home with my little man and can't wait to be back on maternity leave! Ben has two new teeth, the eye tooth on the right hand side and the corresponding bottom tooth. The left hand ones are about to come through too. Hopefully that will be it for a while then! We're lucky because when Ben is teething, he sleeps an awful lot! On Saturday for example, he had a 4.5 hour nap and then slept for 11.5 hours that night!!!!

    I'm only at work today and tomorrow and then I have another four day weekend - woohoo!

    Hello there....
    Seems like yonks since I posted! Been bust this weekend with different visitors every day but its been fun (and hard work!!)
    I'll be brief as I am trying to watch Insight - anyone else watching Its about childcare for under 2's....
    Wow at all these bubs and there colours!! So impressed!! beau has been a super mega grump lately with teething but was really great with all the different kids and adults in the house this weekend which was lovely to see - my brother couldnt beleive how easily he goes to sleep on his own I must admit we are so blessed there!
    He was much better today but I hear you on the daylight savings - he was asleep till 8am today which is UNHEARD of since he was 5months!!! He is still going down at 7pm tho.
    Apart from that - I try and get no added sugar and preservatives in the juice Beau has - he has about 1 to 5 ratio to water and I make him fresh fruit smoothies and squeeze orange juice and things too (and he has water) - we have just moved to sippy cups so he isnt drinking as much atm.
    OK - much love to everyone - xxx

    Yay found my group certificate.....put it in the wrong folder!!!!

    This baby is so low and pushing down. I have trouble standing up straight at times coz I feel pulling. Have my midwife appointment tomorrow so should be interesting, although I'm not quite 33 weeks yet. I have a feeling I am going to go pretty early...just a guessing game though!!!

    Ok, think I need to find chocolate or ice cream

    Oh and dh has just made Olivia a gadget box...it has switches that turn lights on and off and buzzers with volume controls. Shes just like her father....excited by electricity!!!
    Jen- thats a whopper sleep b had. Hope you dont have too much trouble with the teeth.

    mel- lucky you on the long weekends.

    Oh and Olivia isnt great on colours...I need to start thinking about these things.....

    All over the place, so am going!!!

    Love melissa

    Hi girls!

    Mel, what a great idea with the gadget box! You're very clever and creative. Good luck with your appointment today.

    Jen, how good are the sleep ins? Craig and I got to BOTH stay in bed until 7:45 on Monday due to daylight saving. That's probably the first time since Ben was born I had to get him out of that before it became habit unfortunately though, due to us leaving the house at 6am evey morning

    Ben's only good at his colours because he's lucky enough to have my mum's full-on attention all day every day. She spoils him rotten with attention and all the games she plays have elements of learning. Things as simple as handing him a pencil, she'll say "That's the yellow pencil" and get him to repeat it. He's a very fortunate boy in that his Nanny NEVER tires of him. He doesn't get that much attention when he's at home with me!!!! But mum and dad are off to Qld today so he's going to be stuck at home with his mum for the next few weeks - poor Ben!

    Today is my Friday - that makes such a difference psychologically!!!!

    Hi!

    Disgirl - Yeah on spending time with Ben! Thats great your mum does so much with Ben...I was like that with Louis but seem to have lost it a bit with Dylan...god knows what will happen when the next bubs arrives! LOL! Once we've settled in I'm hoping I'll be a bit more into it all...All my spare time at the moment is taken with unpacking and organising...not to mention the cleaning! LOL!

    Jen - Glad you had a good weekend and enjoyed your visitors! Glad Beau's sleeping well and enjoying sleep ins!

    Mel - Yeah at finding your group certificate! Can't wait to hear how you go at your midwife appt...hope bubs is happy to stay put for a few more weeks yet though - I know your over it but best for bubs to keep growing in mummy!
    The Gadget box sounds fantastic - how clever!

    Well, I managed to clean half the house yesterday and could hardly walk by last night - sciatic pain kicked in well and truly...seems better again today...vacuuming definitely doesn't help!

    My little Boy is going to be 3 tomorrow! I can't believe it - I'm hoping to get some of his party decorations up tonight (he's having a party on Sat) so he can wake up to it! Depends how keen dh is to blow up balloons I suppose! I haven't even wrapped his pressies yet...off to the shops today to get some paper and sticky tape (can't find any at the moment - LOL!) and last minute party supplies...Will do food shopping tomorrow...

    Ok - better get organised or we'll get nowhere today...chat later!

    Hey

    My midwife appointment went well. Am measuring 34 weeks...so just a tad bigger than last time. Head is down low, hb is 140 bpm. Everything is normal as can be I dont have another appointment for another month. Seems like such a long time!!!

    Adam is very excited about his gadget box that he wired up last night. He hasnt finished it yet, so she hasnt played with it but its going to be a very noisy toy. It will save me from picking her up to press buttons on the wall!!!!

    I need some tips on being a good sah mum, in regards to teaching Olivia stuff. What kind of things should I have to teach her. We only have toys that shes been given, nothing really educational. She has a great vocab, so not worried about that, just need some tips.

    Well, am off to Cranbourne race club to have lunch with a friend. Might go into their shopping centre and do some window shopping

    Have a great day,

    Mel - Yeah at a great appt! I'm with you on the appts being far apart! I'm only just going to 2 weekly now! It's good though as it means everythings all good and thats the way we want it!

    In regards to the teaching stuff...just interraction in everyday things will be good enough! They really are still only so little - colours, basic counting - 1, 2, 3, animals, role playing - on the phone etc then play wise - toys like puzzles, blocks, anything stacking and organising...They also just want to be involved with what you do...Dylan loves helping set the table and putting dishes away out of the dishwasher, putting food back in the pantry...and of course anything that helps dad outside they love...Gosh there's probably lots more but thats all I can think of....
    Oh...and things like doing the shopping - getting them to find the fruit/veg or name them - it's just everyday learning but much better sometimes being hands on rather than just reading a book iykwim?
    I'm sure you're doing all that already and lots more without even thinking about it!
    Enjoy your lunch out!

    Mel, what Kris said is exactly right They are just sponges right now and pick up on everything. Ben is obsessed with knowing the name of everything in the entire world and asks "That..?" a million times a day! I just make sure I chatter all the time, explaining what I'm doing "Mummy's washing up the glasses now and next I'll do the dishes", "Mummy's putting daddy's blue shorts on the clothes line now, can you hand me a red peg?" They pick things up so quickly. Also, Ben loves to draw and has to tell us what colour he's using so that helps re-inforce his colours. He also likes to 'count' because his daddy always counts his bath toys each night. His idea of counting though is to just make a different sound each time he points to something new. Don't forget reading too, having Liv point to the sun, trees, dog etc in a book is a good way to prolong a book. Especially if you've already read it 14 times that day

    Shape and colour sorting games are big in our house atm too and those wooden jigsaw puzzles. Blocks are alright - until he throws the at the poor unsuspecting dog As with Kristie, Ben loves to help around the house. He helps daddy a lot, and especially feeding the dog. Don't forget, all of that is teaching them things and they find it all fascinating.

    I also give Ben a lot of choices at home, mostly to do with food. Asking him if he would prefer an apple or a peach, yoghurt or a biscuit. I think it makes him feel more valued and responsible? I don't really know but I never have a problem getting him to eat! I also try to avoid saying "No!" unless it's dangerous and urgent. If he asks for a biscuit before dinner, instead of saying no, I'll say "We're about to have dinner, you can have a biscuit or yoghurt after dinner". Most of the time it works, other times he just thinks that it means he can't have a biscuit, but he'll try for a "gogurt"

    Bascially Mel, just go with your instincts. As long as you are spending time with Olivia (really spending time, not just in the same room iykwim), she'll be learning from you.

    Geez, I must be bored at work today - look how long I've rambled on Sorry about that!

    Hi girls,

    Gee it's been a while since I've written anythign!
    I just can't find the time and motivation lately. I do keep up with what's going on though And this week has been a busy one for us.

    Dis, you're lucky getting a big sleep in, we don't, well...we did I guess til 6.30, it wasn't 5am, but wowee, 6.30 sleepin!
    My mum sounds like yours, she's got so much time and patience for Lil, no matter how monstrous she is!

    Kris, take it easy!! You are heavily pg with two babies!! Sounds like you're getting sorted in your house.

    Mel, glad to hear all is well with bub, time is flying by so fast!! Before we know it bub will be here!!
    You are a good sahm!! You're teaching Olivia stuff just by being with ehr. You don't need to actually teach her at this age. She's picking up on everything that's happening around her, just immerse her in interesting things, (just things like bubbles, painting, going shopping, going to the park...not anything special!) and she will learn. Talk about what you're doing and why and it will all sink in, she's a sponge at this age....pretty much what the other girls said!

    We have been busy this week, Monday it was grocery shopping and dinner at my bro's, yesterday we had my SIL and neice and nephew over, as well as a friend her bub, today it was playgroup and to mums for a while, tomorrow there's a BB meet up that I will go to (any other sydney girls want to come??), Friday it's a visit from my aunt and cousins! Woah, I haven't had a week so busy for aaaages!! It's good though since DH is working and I am keeping busy, no time to wallow in self pity when the kids grumble at the same time, or that I'm so tired! Hehe, talking about tired, I fell asleep on the lounge at mums today, LOL! She was talking to me from the kitchen, and watching Lily (who loves to demolish cupboards, and mum lets her do it at her house) and when she came back to the lounge room I was asleep with Liam on my chest! I just can't sit still, or I fall asleep.
    Lily is talking so much this past week or so and she's started to put two words together, like 'car nanny?' (are we going to the car to go to nanny's?), 'bye dada', 'go car?' (are we going to the car?), 'ta dat' (ta that). We went to playgroup for the first time today too and she had an absolute ball! She ran herself ragged! She fell asleep in her carseat before I could even get Liam into the car!
    Took Lily to the specialist about her ears the other day. She has glue ear pretty badly he said. He has put her on a dairy free diet to try to get rid of it, but said her thinks she will need grommets. We have to wait 3wks (or if she gets an infection) and go back to see if the diet works, if not then it's grommets.

    Ok Hi to everyone else I missed, I hope everyone is going well and your bubs are being nice to you, LOL! Time to go....

    Just a quick one...

    Kel - Wow - sounds like a very busy week! I agree though - sometimes your better off getting out and about thatn spending too much time at home...just need to try and balance it with enough sleep though (I know easier said than done!) Sorry to hear about Lily's ears...poor little thing - at least if the diet doesn't help you know the grommets will! Great to hear she had such a fun time at playgroup though! Her words sound like they're coming along really well also!

    Ok..well I've wrapped Louis b'day pressies so we're all ready - I wanted to do some decorating but looks like it will all have to wait until his party on Sat...I asked him what he wanted for his birthday dinner and of course he said chippies...I suppose it's his choice - LOl!

    Chat later...

    Good Afternoon Ladeez,
    Well I have just snuck on here when I should be painting posts for our front fence but you know when you just want to relax? LOL - I hurried thru the second coat now I am bludging while B is asleep!
    Mel- Glad you midwife appt went well - I feel like you do about Olivia - am I doing all the things I could be doing with Beau? I think I am pretty good but like you say Kris, I have been busy packing and unpacking too so I feel a bit neglectful! I guess the water has taken over for us a bit in the past few weeks. Olivias gadget box sounds pretty spec! I havnt mentioned it in here for fear of sounding like a weirdo but Beau's favourite thing is the bamix! He cries and cries for it pointing at the cupboard and clicks it togehter and makes the wizzing sound! Such a bizarre boy! Its all cracked now and was $200!!! We looked for a cheap one for him on the weekend to wreck
    Kris - Happy Birthday Louis!! Are you dipping into your special Xmas stash for the prezzies Kris? I hear you on not being able to find sticky tape!! Thats cute about his chippies - if we were all so easy to please huh? I remember Louis slept for the first time in a big boys bed at his Nanna's house - when was that? It was when you were PG with Dylan? Just planning ahead....
    Dis - Congratulations to your mum on her patience with Ben and how much she obviously adores him - I mean she is doing it a lot too - not here and there like most Grandmas. What kind of pencils/crayons/pens/paints does he have? I want to load Beau up with some but DH freaks when we are at the shop that he isnt old enough. I think beacuse when we play with the chalkboard he eats the chalk!! I tried getting a magna doodle but they had no stock.
    Kel - So glad to hear you are keeping so busy, guests are tiring but its great showing off your new man I am sure. LOL at you falling asleep at your mums, bless, must have been a really sweet sight with you and Liam on your chest. Poor Lil with her ears, hopefully her diet helps and she doesnt need the grommets. What were the specific symptoms that she had the ear problems?
    Us - Doing really well, Beau seems a bit better the last two days and I spotted an upper molar all the way thru when he was giggling last night, that makes 3 now. He is obsessed with his "buckie" - bucket, atm and sitting in the sand or dirt or water! He has a really runny nose tho so I am trying to keep him out of the water and wind. He is still sleepig til 7am - a full 12 hrs but I am sure it will creep earlier and earlier. He is still showing no interest what so ever in fruit or much veg, he was so good when he was really little but now - nada - anyone have any tips?
    Much love x

    Hey all,

    Thanks for the tips, sounds like I am doing things right and I'll just plod along doing much of the same. Olivia has her box up and running and was so excited to flick switches and push the buzzers!!! DH was having fun too!!! Today I got 4 new tyres for my car and it will be serviced next week. I just need to pack my hospital bags and keep the house tidy and I am basically ready!!!! I think! Olivia finishes child care at the end of next week and am looking forward to having the whole time with her. Shes sleeping a bit better...I wont say it too loud for fear of jinxing myself!! Although last night when we took her in her room, she wanted to go into her toddler bed, so we did, then when she finished her bottle, came out. So we popped her into the cot and she cried for ages!!! Will just have to keep trying, maybe put up a gate at her door. I dont know!!!
    We havent got another cot, so am hoping she will get the idea by early next year when we put the new one in with her.

    Jen- arent they funny about what they like to play with!! Glad beaus molar is through. Olivia has 2 eye teeth through and the bottom ones are on their way. Have fun painting!I dont have tips on how to get fruit and veg into him coz I have a garbage disposal unit, but if she doesnt eat something, then I will sometimes offer her something else thats healthy....

    Kris- Happy Birthday Louis. Hope you are having a fun day and its so beautiful here today. Enjoy the weekend party.

    Kel- wow your busy. No wonder you fell asleep at your mums!!!! Hows life with 2? And are you still breast feeding??? Thats cool that shes putting words together. Am glad that you have found the problem with her ears and am hoping the diet will help.

    Mel- thanks for the tips!!! You sound bored at work. How long left????

    Well, its almost time for me to go pick up Olivia...I got to have a nanna nap too today

    Take care

    Wow. I feel really neglectful now. Pip still only has a shower twice a week cause we still don't have a bathtub. And DH doesn't help in that he grabs Pip, holds him in the shower, washes him quickly and throws him out to me. All so DH can have a nice long shower by himself. He actually is more gentle when he gives the dog a shower! If I give Pip a shower it takes ages cause I let him run around the bathroom in the nuddy, then I open up the door when he's ready and then let him play i his own time.

    ARGHhh.
    I still can't understand a word of what he says. Sometimes I don't like him at all.

    But at other times ... well, today we had class photos at childcare, can't wait to see them.

    cya alls

    Hi!

    We had a nice day...Louis was so excited in the morning to get a few little pressies...he opened the rest this afternoon but I think was a little overwhelmed...funny he likes the smallest cheapes pressie the best - always the way! LOL! We did food shopping for his party and I spent a small fortune - could barely fit in the freezer - just lots of snack junk foods I can shove in the oven and not really think about - hehehe. I don't know how anyone could afford to buy food like that all the time! Louis was a big helper though...Dylans just so cheeky at the moment - we had cuddles before bed which were so nice - he keeps lifting up my t-shirt and giving my big tummy a cuddle and can say bubba and an attempt at Ethan so thats cute...I still don't think he knows what he's in for yet though! LOL!

    Jen - You're entitled to a break - and no better time than when bubs is asleep and the house is peaceful and you can actually relax!
    LOL at Beau loving the bamix! how funny! I'm sure your doing a fantastic job with Beau!
    Ummm...nup - all the xmas stuff is still on layby - I think they'll be opening xmas presents for a week! I now realise I may have overdone it...LOL! Dh is going to have a heart attack when they're wrapped and "santa" delivers them under the tree....I'm still excited though! LOL!
    Gosh - what a memory you have!!! I can't even remember that! But I can remember that we put him full time into a big bed when Dylan was a couple of months old because we needed the cot! LOL! So he would have been about 19-20months I suppose! We didn't have any dramas and he was very excited and loved it - He had a new wiggles doona cover etc and we put a side barrier on and has only had one period of time when he got out of bed...mostly he never really has...
    Just reading what you wrote for Dis in regards to art stuff - A magnadoodle is a great idea when you can't be bothered with the mess! I usually sit Dylan in the high chair for drawing but he does still try and eat crayons etc...mind you he loves it - I really should do more! I'm guilty with the art stuff because it's so much effort setting up and cleaning up for 10min attention - iykwim? The other thing the kids are right into at the moment is bath crayons - they just drawer with special crayons while they're in the bath and it just wipes straight off! They love asking dh to draw things for them as well or he gets them to guess...Another thing is the big chunky chalks for outside - because yet again - no mess inside! I love summer because I can get them down to their nappy or in the nuddy and the can finger paint etc and then can just hop in the baby pool to wash them!! hehehe.
    He might be having his 12 hours cos your tiring him out with all that outdoor play! LOL!
    In regards to food I'm not quite sure...best thing is to disguise it in stuff he already likes...I suppose I'm lucky - my boys love salad..but not cooked veg quite so much...Often they'll stand at the kitchen while I'm chopping stuff and eat as I chop - raw....funny because I'm so not a raw veg person but they love it...it's easy not to offer stuff when you don't like it - LOL! I would say just go with what he likes...My boys love avocado and tomato - so they always have salad rolls for lunch - or avocado nori rolls, tomato and mushroom in salads etc...They don't really eat a whole lot of it but it's enough for me to be satisfied...they also looovvveee fruit so I figure that makes up for any lack of veggies!

    Mel - omg - the box toy thing sounds great! Good on him! Wow - you're so organised! I'm slowly but surely getting my bag ready...I've never been so unorganised in my life! Bought a few bits and pieces but still have to wash all of bubs clothes! Got so behind just with out washing this week with the rain though that It will probably have to wait - I might try and get a load done tomorrow of bubs stuff just so I can get all sooky and clucky when I remember how small everything is...LOL!
    Gosh...I really need to get my car services as well...When will I have the time?????
    In regards to the sleeping - persistance is the key...she might do it for 2 or 3 weeks but if everytime she gets up you just put her back down she'll eventually get the message...you just can't give in and let her sit out with you or start playing with toys etc (unless she's not well or something of course!) Just have a really good night routine and she'll get used to it!
    Yeah on an nanna nap!

    Kaz - Don't be silly - of course your not neglectful! And kids can be frustrating at times...we all have our good and bad moments with them...Trust me!!!! Ooh I'm sure the photos will be just gorgeous!!!

    Ok...better got and have a tidy up...so can't be bothered though! Chat later!

    eta - just realised I've written an epic - do you think I'm procrastinating? LOL!

    Good Afternoon....
    Well they say it comes in threes....I broke a dish my mum gave me, flooded the laundry and found Beau eating one of those big chalks (he found in the garage cause I dont have any yet) - a blue one, he wasnt impressed when mum shoved her fingers in his mouth and flooded him with water!!! What is it with him and chalk?
    Kris - Thanks so much for all your great tips! I think i need to do what you say and focus on the things he will eat and stop trying to force him to eat things he doesnt like but I do! He loves avacado and mushrooms, loves any potato product too!! I will just keep on with smoothies too atm. I think he has a carb and dairy addiction like his mum! Mmm my memory isnt that great!Maybe its beacuse that was before I gave birth LOL? I just know that B is not ready for a big bed yet and was wondering when Louis went into his. Your Dh is going to know whats up onXmas morning huh? I must confess I intend on going ballisitc for our kids at Xmas, not so much gift wise but cool traditions for our family like stockings, baking shortbread decorations for the tree on xmas eve and making flour santa tracks for them and pancakes on Xmas morning - all that great stuff! I get excited too! Those bath crayons sound amazing! Can you get them at Kmart? b hates the bath since we have moved (its a spa bath and too big I think?) so I am trying anything! I did bubble blowing last night!
    Kaz - Dont worry love, we all feel like that occasionally.
    Mel - You sound organised! Thats my fear to - that he will wander around the house! But persistance like anything else I guess! Thats nice you are looking forward to some special time with her when she finishes care - I am so paranoid about educating B now - we spent most of the morning reading and identifying animals and colours and then shape sorting - poor kid wanted to have his nap to get away from me!
    Have a great day everyone x
