    Hey All,
    Thankyou for the good wishes!!! You guys (apart from DH are the only ones that know)!
    Beau is getting better I think, only two bad nappies today so far and the GP gave me some cream that I am mixing with canesten and its cleared his bum right up I am still flu-ey but feel like i'm getting a bit better! Not allowed to get excited until at least the 12wk mark....
    Kris - You are right, I had the flu three times when PG with Beau, there must be something in that? Hope you get over it fast and the boys are on the mend?
    Kaz - Congratulations on being able to TTC, hope it happens fast for you lovely!
    Kel - Thanks hon, hope you are well!
    Dis - Goodness, dont blame you on wanting this month over, at least the medicine is helping Ben, awful when they are sick isnt it? You have had a double whammy too! I looked on the counter and I would be due the 27th of Dec.....
    Mel - Bog congratulations, must be such a relief. Yay Becca!

    Hugs Von- hope your little man sorts himself out soon. I couldnt find you on fb....

    Jen your due date is my sisters birthday, did you go early or late or on time with B?

    Mel hope bens ear clears up soon

    Kaz yay, good luck ttc, hope its short and sweet! Might see you today?

    Kel- hows the sleeping going? And studying and work?

    Kris I will see you today, hope your boys are feeling better too.

    Us- well! I am up. Yesterday Olivia had a fall in my car while I was putting Beccas seat back in ( had to wash it coz shes a mighty chucker). She hit her head on the corner of the seat ( well I am guessing). She screamed, so I took her inside and she felll asleep with some milk. 2 hours later when I went to wake her, I was stroking her head and she has this big egg on her head and a bruise. Ouch. At least I could wake her. Coz she slept in the arvo, she didnt want to go to sleep so we watch Spy Kids. First big movie she enjoyed and kept saying it was funny. I put her to bed, didnt want to sleep so at 930 we went to my bed andfell asleep (dh at a party). Woke up at 1130 to put her back to bed. Woke up for Beccas feed at 1230 til 115...shes fussing so much with her bottle at the moment. Got woken up by Olivia at 230...she cried coz dh was sleeping in our bed where she had fallen asleep. More milk for Olivia and I had to go nigh nighs next to her coz she followed me out the door. Then she slept next to me on the floor. I woke up at 430 and out her back into her bed, came to our bed and at 615 becca is awake for yet another feed. And fussed again so hasnt finished it and is happily chatting on the floor as I type.
    I have started Bec on solids a few days ago, hopefully that will settle her sleep down. Although I've forgotton wht to do next. Shes taking the rice cereal well and I only give it to her once a day. Now what??? Do I give it twice a day and see how she goes or do I give her something different? It seems like so long ago I did this!

    Anyway, I will see you today Kris and Kaz. Thanks for the ear.

    Hi!

    Just a quick one from me!!

    Mel & Kaz - I'm so looking forward to seeing you guys today!! Kids are basically all better now...But feral to the max! LOL!

    Mel - Ethan's on 3 solid meals a day already! LOL! He's porked up a bit from it now as well which is good - When I say 3 meals - he's not to fussed with brekky so just had a bit of mushed banana/apple or I pureed a tinned fruit yesterday cos I ran out of fresh fruit!! Lunch is usually rice cereal, fruit & a bit of formula mixed in and dinner is pumpkin, carrot, broccoli, potato mush...Oh and now he we tried him out on a little bit of cheese in it and so far so good!! Next week I'm going to introduce yoghurt...then he'll have a veggie meal for lunch as well as some yog...I think he's having a bit too much sweets at the moment and not enough veg...Oh and I think you can even start chicken from 6m as well...I can't quite remember...

    Sorry to hear of your rotten sleep Mel - I'm in such a bad habit of going to bed too late at the moment - I haven't had more than 5 or 6 hours sleep (each night) since I had my big sleep on Mon night...I must have an early one tonight...My problem is it's the only time the house is peaceful so I can actually focus on some work or whatever...

    Von - Aww - hope James settles down for you soon!

    Jen - Hope you guys are all better now! How are you feeling!!! I'm so happy for you! Aww might be a little christmas baby!!

    Chat later!

    Mel *hugs* sounds like a horrid night, that's one thing I'm not looking forward to again if we get preggers! Olivia & Pip can compare egg=lumps today....

    Yesterday we went around looking at kitchen stuff, and poor Pip didn't get to fall asleep until after 4pm .. he slept through till 3am when we changed his nappy & gave him some milk, DH put him back to his cot at 4am and he slept through until 8! Well, then he took off his nappy, doh.

    So today we're off to the Lilydale farmers' markets, then to Kris' and tupperware goodness
    Puffing Billy train race today, so my front nature strip is getting wrecked by people parking on it ...

    Anyhows, Jen - *hugs* and bring on the 12 weeks mark!

    Von - have I added you on facebook? Search for me as Karyn Pev if we're not already ....

    Hi girls. A busy weekend here. I took J to his first footy game yesterday Craig had soccer and J's such a pig it's too hard to express enough for more than a couple of hours. I took my 9 yo nephew with me too. It was lovely! J loved it! He was yelling and laughing through two quarters, slept through one quarter and pretty much fed through the other He's definitely my social bubba Ben spent the day with my SIL and loved it. Her boys have a big table with all the Thomas Wooden Railway stuff and he left the room for a total of five minutes all day according to my SIL

    I'm so jealous of you girls going to Kris' Tupperware party. I need some more and would love to go to a party right now! Hope you all had fun

    Von, you poor thing. James sounds like he's sure being a handful right now with his illness and the nappies. Thankfully, Ben doesn't seem too interested in going without a nappy. He has never tried to take it off *touch wood*.
    How's Natasha coping with you needing to give so much attention to James?

    Mel, what a crappy night you had. Those ones are just awful

    Jen, bring on 12 weeks!

    Okay, gotta go feed one of the boys. They're both asking for food right now. Both at the same time as usual!!!

    Had a great time yesterday, thanks Kris, good to see the boys and great to see you too Kaz and Pip. I wish we had loads of spare cash as I would have got more.

    Olivias bump has got slightly smaller thank goodness! Its still very bruised though. Sleep last night was just as fun as the night before...actually its been going like this for the past 2 weeks. I will give Becca an evenoing meal tonight and see if that helps. I added banana to her rice cereal today. She was up twice for a feed last night. Olivia slept from 9til 5am then fell asleep on he couch after some comotion (sp?) till 830. I am buggered and my body is sore from sleeping on the floor and feeding constantly...well it feels like it anyway!!

    Mel- glad you had a good day and j enjoyed himself. Sounds like Ben had fun too.

    Is anyone toilet training yet? Every morning and sometimes at night we do nappy free time and Olivia does wees and poos in the potty and even asked to get out of the bath to wee in the toilet! Only thing is I cant get her to wear undies!!!! its nappy or no nappy and thats it!

    Ok, better go and put washing out and get lunch and....you know!!!!

    Hi!

    Thank you so much Kaz & Mel for coming yesterday - it was so great to see you and the kids!!! I'm really looking forward to another catch up to deliver your tupperware - LOL hope you're not in trouble for shopping!!

    Kaz - Patrick is just so gorgeous!! Such a quiet little boy...very placid (although that could have just been the new surroundings!! LOL) I'm glad he had lots of fun running around!! LOL at him being asleep so quickly on the way home - you wouldn't have known he was so tired!!

    Mel - Omg Becca is soooo gorgeous - I can't get over all of her hair! What a cruisy baby she is also!! Olivia did so well asleep on the couch with all the noise as well! Although, I'm surprised Dylan slept so long in his room also!
    Glad Olivias lump has gone down a bit...Poor little thing - I can't believe how big it was...gosh that must have hurt!!
    Wow on the toilet training - that's fantastic - maybe you could try pull-ups?? Dylan can do wees on the toilet but he's not fussed and prefers his nappy on also - although he did ask to go last night but didn't really do anything!! I'm trying to get Louis night trained first then I'll get into the day training with Dylan...

    Dis - So glad you had a great day!

    Had a relatively early night of 11.30pm - LOL! Ethan hardly fed while everyone was around though so had 2 feeds overnight and thought it was awake time at 5am - I don't think so - so took me about 30min to get him back to sleep and then he slept in until 8am - Thats better!!! The boys let me snooze with him so I didn't get out of bed until 9am!! I couldn't believe it - Louis had got a yoghurt for him and Dylan so they werent hungry and were happy watching tv...LOL!

    Heaps of running around and work to do today so I better get organised! (something you all know I'm not very good at judging by the state of my house - LOL!) - Chat later...

    Hey All....
    Its still pretty miserable at ours - Beau has diorehhea still (not as bad tho), they found nothing in the test from his sample but now he has come out in ulcers on his mouth and I know he has them inside but he wont let me look - he wont eat and even milk hurts him - I have just made another doctors appt for this afternoon - hopefully will get some antibiotics. I am feeling ok - no m/s or anything. Just have this wretched cold still but am more worried about Beau....
    Mel - Sorry about poor Olivia bumping her head and sleeping so badly for you. Glad her bump is going down a little....wow - no toilet training here! Think we are a ways off! I went 10days over with Beau and was induced, had over a day in labour then an emergency cesar - I am opting for a cesar this time regardless. I am a bit fretful about going to the hospital up here though and am toying with going back to RPA but it might be way to much hassle.
    Kaz- Wow thats a big sleep for PIp!! Far out!
    Kris - Your tupperware party sounds like a hit! Ethan is doing great guns by the sounds of it! I am in bed at 9pm every night and I only have Beau LOL!
    Dis - I can just picture you guys at the footy! Hilarious! He is so social as you say. Thats super cute with Ben and the Thomas train set!
    Its B's b'day on Sunday so we got him some pressies yesterday, a cookie monster back pack and medical kit and some duplo - and some shoes and I will get him some more matchbox cars I think too. Not a big one, we are spending all our money on our house atm and started painting it on Saturday..yay!! Bit of a snowball effect though unfortunately...new front door etc etc etc!
    Ok, a plastic clothes hanger just fell off the spare bed and woke beau up after 30min GRRRRR!!! Wish me luck at the docs!

    Mel, no chance of toilet training here. Ben's gross and will sit in a pooey nappy for hours if we don't smell it! Even in cloth - yuk!

    Kris, how cute is Louis looking after Dylan like that?

    Jen, yay on the no m/s. Hope it stays that way for you. Did you get sick with Beau? Good luck with the doctors.

    We had a good day for most of the day here until Ben cracked it and woke up Craig I gave him a Tim Tam after half an hour of crying and it did the trick, I think he needed a sugar hit! Now as I'm sitting here we have Craig and Ben playing with all the trains next to me. I don't know who has more fun

    Hi girls,

    Soryy I haven't been around much, I just have no time! We are all well here.

    Dis, How cute J sounds at the footy. My mum just knitted Liam a jumper and beanie (though Lily's claimed the beanie I think!) in DH's teams colours. He looks so cute in them. DH just has to take him to the footy now!
    Isn't it always the way, the kids want stuff at the same time, happens here too.I swear they see me with the other one, and then want me just because I'm with the other one, kwim?? Lily definately does it. I see her happily playing and then if I go near Liam or pick him up, she strats whinging! Little miss she is! And she's teaching Liam bad habbits too, cause I'm pretty sure he did it today too...

    Mel, we had a few weeks of really bad nights too. Though it seems to have settled down the past few nights *Kel knocks on wood* (don't want to jinx myself). Liam has only been waking twice for a feed and Lily once a night. She even slept a whole night in her own bed the other night, WOOOHOOOO! That's the first time in months!!!! Maybe even a year? I can't remember the last time she did it. The sleeplessness and tiredness is the worst though!
    WIth toilet training, I am following Lil's lead. I just put her on when she asks. Thats usually before a bath and sometimes when she sees me sitting on the toilet. She often runs around nappyless, though she just pee's on the floor if she needs to I'm not too worried yet though. I was going to do it, but it's just too time consuming a the moment, and I am time poor!!

    Kris, I agree, you need to go to bed earlier! I'm usually in bed by no later than 10.30, and that's a late nite! Sometimes it's as early as 8.00....but then, my kids are out of bed at 5am some mornings, and I'm up way too many times a night. And I luuuvrrrve my sleep, the only way I can get any is to go to bed early!
    Glad to hear you had a good time at your tupperware party. Sounds like a good time was had by all!

    Jen, sorry to hear B is sick. I hope the dr found the cause of it. Poor little monkey.
    Glad to hear you're well with your pg. Do you know how far along you are, or is it only a few weeks?? I'm so excited for you...I have to live vicariously now, DH is not going to let me have another bub... Though I'm not sure if I really want one, just the clucky feeling won't go away!
    Happy B'day to B for Sunday. I hope you all have a great day!

    Ok gotta go. Bye!!

    Tonight Pip said "I want toilet" and sure enough, he did a poo! Very impressed!

    Kris - your house is gorgeous and your hubby wonderful, I can't believe he handled all those kids! Yeah, Pip was a bit quiet cause he was tired, he was dropping off on the way to your place but then perked up Unlike Olivia!

    Mel - glad her bump's gone down a bit, it was HUGE! She certainly did a good job on it!

    Lil - you must be so busy, I can't imagine!

    hey everybody....
    things are pretty grim here - I have had two meltdowns since last night - the doctor said the ulcers arent related to the gastro but I guess a symptom of him being run down, he is in agonising pain anytime he tries to eat or drink and is whinging, whining and crying constantly - I dont know what's wrong with me but he has been like this with the gastro for 10days now and I have hit my sympathy limits I think - I feel awful when I get frustrated with him - I must be the worst mother ever! I hope its the PG hormones cause I cant stop crying and I let out a scream before....

    Big hugs Jen. I think it's a combo of hormones and having a sick kid. Last week I'm afraid I snapped at Ben a couple of times even though he was sick It was after three weeks of sickness with all of us though and I'd had enough! Unfortunately us mums don't ever get any time off!

    Hang in there Have you tried giving Beau some Nurofen or Panadol about 20 mins before giving him something to eat? That's what we had to do with Ben and his ear infections. Otherwise the poor little guy couldn't swallow without pain

    Hello....
    Things are pretty much the same - he woke every hour from 7pm last night till around 11 when got up and tried to give him some panadol and milk and he slept till about 4? then woke again at 5 then was up at 6am. He only slept for 20min yesterday and I have just put him down now after going to the park so hopefully he will sleep a bit longer today.....
    Dis - The nuerofen or panadol doesnt do anything really as they are open sores - I have tried smearing zovirax on the ones outside and have been letting him suck the tube of sm-33 for any relief - he is basically eating just paddle pops and tea at the moment cause its the only thing he can handle....Glad to hear someone else looses it occaisionally too - in between being incredibly unhappy he can still throw a cup of tea at the TV and destroy his favourite pop up books!! Ahhgghhh!!!
    Mel - Thanks hon, I am glad to hear it could very well be my hormones, not just me going crazy!
    Anyway hope everyone is doing better than us - I am on my own tonight as DH is playing indoor cricket...hope Beau improves!

    Poor Beau, those open sores sound awful. Poor little mite

    I'm probably doing better than you Jen, but it doesn't feel like it Ben is sleeping through, but J is up every three hours again through the night! He's also feeding every hour or hour and a half! Bloody hell, isn't he big enough? Yesterday we went to the park to feed the ducks, I fed J before we left, fed him while we were out and then fed him as soon as we got home as he was screaming for it. We were only gone for two hours!!! Craig and I have a running joke about his 'growth spurts'. He's had one every week since he was born. This is his 3.5 month growth spurt. Last week he had his 3.25 month growth spurt I'm thinking he's over 8kgs now. Crazy since he was in hospital for 4 days, you'd think he would have lost a bit!

    Ben isn't much better at the moment. He's addicted to Vita Brits. Had four yesterday. Six the day before. At least he's eating Vita Brits and fruit rather than what I'm eating

    Gotta go. Surprise, surprise, Jared wants a feed!!!!
