    Thanks Trace ..I thought it sounded a little silly!. I might start giving her a little cup of milk with her lunch tomorrow.

    Girls dont worry I will be having my little princess join the 1 club soon to ..but I am excited more then sad ..but it does make me want another little wee one hehe.

    So far I am happy to report I cant hear any little visitors walking around in the walls or roof or under the house so fingers toes and anything else crossed they are all DEAD!

    Hope you are all having a great night...I am going to start trying to organise our Christmas holiday . I think we may head south this year as we go to Port Stephens twice a year and although we LOVE it DH has decided he would love to see south. I started organising this months and months ago but got slack so I have to get a move on!.

    Morning everyone!

    Cass - Yeap hard to believe our munchkins are nearly one, bizarre!Let us know how you go with the milk. Hpe the rats have taken a hike for you. And I so know how your mum feels, think I might have done almost as much crying as Lucie

    Tracey - Sounds like you are still mega busy at work. Rest up if you can honey!

    Hi Kel - Wow now only 8 days....how time flies!

    Rae - thanks for the encouragement! Unfortunately it has been 'bad' habits that have led to this. Wanna come and do my washing for me?

    Hi Mel!

    Brooke - Yeap I caved in yesterday with the dummy - think it's just far too much for the munchkin. Is Charli any better today?

    Hi Fletch - did you finish wrapping all the pressies?

    Jo - 4 kids is an awesome effort if you ask me!!!!

    Well still a stressful house here. This is soooooooooooo tough. Lucie was exhausted yesterday. She had been awake since 3.30am and still refusing to self settle at day sleeps. She had half an hour in her pram all day yesterday and that was it. So by 4 she was knackered. She was in bed about 5.30pm - too tired to even eat much dinner at all and asleep by around 6. I only went into her once all night (she woke with a little cry a couple of times but self settled) and that probably needn't have been done, she managed to get herself back to sleep in her exhausted state. Poor mite is falling asleep sitting up though and then leaning forward over herself IYKWIM. I went in and moved her a few times. She woke just before 5am so I gave her her bottle then. Only about 140ml still and it's the only milk she has now (I try and sneak cheese in all her meals to make up on the calcium). But instead of putting her back to bed (she has just been screaming) I will try and keep her up now until breakie around 7 and then nap around 9am. Sooooo hoping she starts getting the idea of daytime naps otherwise she will be permanently tired!Then I'm hoping to extend the morning wake up til around 6 with bedtime around 7pm.

    Do any other bubs grind their teeth?

    Oh Soph you poor thing ...I am sending big hugs to you . You should be very proud at how strong you are being and it sounds like you are confident in your choices. Half my problems is I always doubt my choices and i am sure our little ones pick up on that!.Be strong as you are doing the CC in a kind why and that is the only thing you can do .

    Kaitlyn does not grind her teeth ..although she does not have enough to do it yet hehe. I grind mine when I am stressed ..so does my mum...so I am sure she will to !.

    Well the rats were quieter last night so I think some of them have "taken the bait " hahahah pardon the punn!. Still heard a few though but it was not unbearable and we could sleep through it.

    I have been spending the morning childproofing the house as Kaitlyn wants to be everywhere!. Moved glass coffee table , removed EVERYTHING from TV unit and I am going to fill it with things for her like old remotes and Magazines so she feels like she is getting something adult. Plus moved speakers and cables ect ect. Man there is so much to do ..everytime she moves I think of something else!.

    Well better be off , we are going to the shops to buy Kaitlyn a new sunhat for her second day at daycare tomorrow

    Hope you all have a gr8 day - sending you lots of calm baby sleeping vibes Soph...and hugs to you to !.

    oh Cass thank you! And believe me I am not that confident in my choices, lots of tears from me too! She just refuses to sleep in her cot during the day, nights have been (touch wood) ok. Will ring Tresillian again this arvo and see what they say. Do you think Kaitlyn is liking child care? Good on you for childproofing everything too - will make your life a lot easier.

    I hope them rats are done in by tonight!!!!
    I hope Kaitlyn enjoys day care tomorrow, she'll get used to it & really be enjoying it soon...

    Soph, I hope Lucie sorts herself into a pattern for you...
    Indah seems to do this now... Wakes at 6:30am I give her one boob then she plays I change her nappy, maddy reads to her while I get ready & then at about 7:15am I give her the other side & pop her back to bed, she calls out for about 2-3 mins & then is sound asleep til about 7:45am when i have to carefully pick her up & give to my sister or Mum... They then let her play as she refuses to go down once at their place & so she stays awake til either Sis has dropped her kids at school, or Mum has taken Maddy to school. Then at about 9:15 she has brekkie, cereal or toast, then plays , grizzles has a bottle & goes to bed til about 12:30-1pm... She then plays has luch, just does whatever & she has another bottle at about 3ish & goes back to bed if with Mum as she leaves her in bed & Dad looks after her while Mum goes to get Maddy, or my sis stretches Indah out til she is home with her kids, then she goes back to sleep til about 5-5:30pm.. I then let her booby feed as she wishes & if she wishes when I get home & she gets dropped off... Sometimes she just wants Mummy milk & a few sucks sees her right, sometimes none & sometimes both breasts? I let her lead!
    We then have dinner at about 6-6:30 & she is in highchair eating her dinner too... Then at about 7pm, I run the bath the girls hop in & by 7:30 they are in Pj's... I then breast feed & offer a top up bottle as I am no longer expressing as it was too draining!!! She goes to bed & I tend to hear her at 11pm talking, whinging but not at all crying & then that's it til the morning... I dont get up at all anymore as it just woke her up fully & then it was a fight to get her back to sleep... When I hear her whinging I know wjhat it is now & roll back over! On the odd occasion she is crying (hasnt happend for weeks) I go in & offer her booby til she is asleep...

    Hope that helps... I was going in with each & every noise, but realised it woke her fully up & then she'd be hysterical for hours....

    BIg Hugs!!!!! Your doing an amazing job!

    Tracey I love the new pic of Indah ..she is soooooo cute!. Thanks for your nice words on daycare..hopefully it wont take her long to settle in .
    Soph in response to your question she does not like it yet . Tomorrow she is going in for about 5hours so I think that will be even harder ..oh god I hate leaving her :-(((((((((((((((((((((((((. I took her to a playgroup yesterday with about 10kids and also to a toy libary today so she was around lots of noisey kids . I am going to keep doing this everyday or second day until she goes into daycare full on as I think half the issue is she is used to quiet mummy not lots of kids running around. Everytime I think of leaving her there I just remember when I arrived to pick her up and she was on the ladies lap wrapped around her so scared...little and alone looking :-((((((((((((((((.

    Storm I hope your DH feels better soon ..glad you are going well and yay on the new toofie!. I think Kaitlyn may be getting some more although I cant see them her poo poos tell a different story!.

    Talking Been AWOL!!!!!!!

    Hi everyone!!!Long time no post!!

    I have been sick as I got Nick's and Jack's cold, but all better now
    And also been busy working and grooming dogs too... And gee I have missed you guys!!!

    Jack is crawling everywhere and now starting to pull himself up too. So he's keeping me on my toes and making me LMAO everytime I try to tell him "NO", as he looks serious for a minute , then breaks out in a huge grin!! I just can't help it!!

    Trace, love the new pic of Indah, she is getting prettier by the second!! And her new longies are just gorgeous!! And hope your DH's ear gets better cause u guys need this holiday!!!

    Soph, sorry that Lucie isn't sleeping well for u during the day..Did u get onto Tresillian and if so were they any help to u?? I hope so luv..

    Rae, isn't the hugabub just fantastic.. I tell everyone to get them!! And I know what u mean about too much takeaway, I can hardly eat any!!

    Cass, that is a great idea to get Kaitlyn used to noisy kids and stuff. I hope it helps her and she gets better at daycare and I'm crossing my fingers and toes for u that one day she will enjoy it too!!

    Storm, WOW 9 teeth already, Zac's gonna have a whole set by next year the way he's going!!!hehehehe. Hope your family gets better soon, esp your DH..

    Hi Alex! Cheeky little Jack grinning at you, it's hard to stay serious I agree!

    Rae - Tresillian are pretty much always helpful, it can just take forever to get through sometimes. It's great to get a really good nurse, others I don't warm to as much. Ah well on the take away, but I know what you mean about not being bothered to cook when it's just you.

    Cass - She will soon love it I am sure - she'll be running around with all those kids like she's the boss.

    Tracey and Storm - Hope your DH's get better soon.

    Storm - Wow on 9 teeth. Lucie now has 8, she won't let me near her mouth to look (I used to look while she was asleep, but can't do that now!!!!)

    Tracey - Indah certainly sounds like a great sleeper. V jealous here!!!!!!!!!

    I have our little mothers group all around today for lunch. Have just cooked a pot of pumpkin soup and have to finish cleaning. Lucie is down for a sleep - like she will though!

    Dh is not getting better so sookingly off to Dr again today to hopefully get sdomething stronger & I told him to tell the DR we are flying so hopefully it's better by then! I need this holiday badly!

    That pic of Ella laughing is so gorgeous Rae!!!

    Fletch how's Zane? The soakers from Shannon are ace hey, Mine's on Indah's photo site!

    How are all the dogs going Alex, I bet there are lot's of pretty smelling dogs around! Jack is so cute in his pic, Mr serious & happy 10 months to him from Indah!

    Jo, how are all the kids & ofcourse the horse & lamb?

    Brooke how's everything with you & Charli?

    Cass, Its' hard when they are upset, thankfully I ahve never had to drop either girls at an unfamiliar place for Day care, but Kaitlyn, will settle in I promise! A lady from work returned when her daughter was 8 months & put her in the Day care near work, 5 days per week & it took about 2 wks before she was looking forward to the activities at Day catre & started crying coz the weekends took so long til day care again! Kaitlyn will be the same soon....

    Bec, how's everything with you?

    Strom, Poor Dh's when they are sick, they are dying hey!! Mine is a big baby! I hope your all better soon!

    Soph, I hope Lucie slept really well last night & settles in to day sleeps soon too.... Big Hugs!

    Soph, I recall being jealous of you earlier on as Indah was waking & Lucie was sleeping! I had a dream baby with Maddy though slept thru from 7 days & never wakes up & never did!
    It will all change again, so just do what you think is right for you guys & you'll fall into a routine or pattern that works for you....

    Hello ladies

    Cass Ive never heard of the bleeding bowel?? Sammy doesnt have cups of milk but he does have a little bit of cows milk on his cereal in the morning. I so hope little Kaitlyn is ok today at daycare. My thoughts are with you. It must be so incredibly hard. I think its great though that you have been socialising her with other kids..will make it a lot easier for her.

    Awwww Kel....little Zahzee is nearly 1!!! Same as Sammy..its just gone too quickly!!!!

    Trace love the new piccie of miss Indah. Hope your Dh gets better pronto..we dont want anything interfering with your long awaited holiday! Lizzie the lamb is good thanks..its so sweet having to give her bottles. As soon as we call her she comes running..little piggy! Gemma the horse is not getting as much action as she should with Jess's arm being broken..she has no riding for another 6 weeks.

    Alex sorry to hear you guys have been sick. How many dogs do you groom? My little pekingese is overdue for a nice cut and groom! Jack sounds like such a little charmer!

    Wow Storm...thats a mouthful!!! Sammy has 5 now..dont you just love those teething poos!!! Sending get well vibes to your Dh too. Are your kids back at school now?

    Soph I hope things are settling down at home for you. Does Lucie not sleep at all during the day? Ive found that some days we just have one sleep instead of the two as he seems to be not as tired. Your day sounds like fun..yummo pumpkin soup.

    Rae bet you counting down til tomorrow when your DH was back. Lol at the junk food too..its hard to get inspired cooking for one.

    Sammy has started pointing at where he wants to go now. Its so cute..he points to something or somewhere or someone and makes a little grunt indicating thats where he wants to go...hes communicating what he wants soo well.

    I have a to take Jess for an xray and specialist appt today..hopefully everything is going well with her arm. Is anyone heading in for the Target toy sale today? I can remember going in this time last year with a huge belly pushing my way through the crowds! Might have to pop in tonight with my DH. So far any pressies we have gotten for Sammy ive given to him early..im terrible!!!

    Have a nice day ladies.

    I have a shopping Tour on Saturday so will take along my Target catalogue & see what I can get & if it's cheaper!
    But the girls really dont need toys, so I am really stumped what to get them this year!???
    That's bad isnt it thta my girls have all they really want & I cant think of anything else!!!

    Maddy has heaps of books & loves reading so might get her some more & some more DS games, Indah... maybe I'll get her some little kid DVD's???

    Probably both can have clothes & shoes??? AAARRRGGGHHH I have no idea!

    Hope Jess's arm is healing!!!!

    Hiya girls!

    Brooke and Fletch I cant believe you went to the sales at midnight ...you are so good!. I would have been a total right off the next day if i had stayed up that late.

    Alex do you own an animal grooming business?. i was thinking of buying one a few years back ..still one of my possible future endevours! Thanks for the big sloppy kiss ..Kaitlyn gives one back with one of her extra special cuddles that I know you will love as much as I do .

    Soph I hope you had a nice day with your Mg today. How is Lucie going with the CC?.

    Tracey I hope your DH gets better soon as it would be a shame for him to be sick when you go on holidays. Good luck with the shopping for the girls.

    Jo thanks on the milk tip ..I always give Kaitlyn milk on her cereal and also in cooking and she loves it as well. That is so cute that Sammy is pointing!. I hope the Xray goes well tomorrow.

    Well Kaitlyn went to daycare from 10am-3pm today. She slept from 115pm-3pm which is good for her. She ate lunch which means she is a little more settled. And they said she played on her own for a while. I was a little worried though as they served her a strawberry for morning tea???? arnt babies not allowed strawberries until 12months?. Also they put her to bed with her teddy bear ..is this against SID recommendations?. let me know as I will nicely recommend not to do both if I am right in my thinking.

    I also spoke to my boss today and she has told me she is happy for me to work from home Tues/Weds and just come into the office Thurs/Friday...so good!. I did not even ask she just said why dont I only come in for my meetings on those two days and any meetings I have on Tues/Weds they will just conferance me into the call...so very very happy with that.

    Tomorrow we are off to meet with my prenatal girls so that should be fun.

    Rats are getting quieter and quieter everynight as they die off one by one. I would hate to think how many we had. I have told the guy to come and collect the dead bodies and get something to deorderise under the house! I feel so dirty.....no seriously I DO !.

    Well hope you are all having a nice night. I better go finalise the BBQ Spare ribs I made in the SC tonight ..mmmmmm DH is due home any minute.

    Hope you girls are all having a nice night.

    Cass
