    Hi girls!



    Bec I am so glad you are announcing your wonderful new bubba !. Has Josh worked out yet that there is a little baby in that belly of yours?. enjoy your weekend away !.

    Soph I did not know your DH was a teacher!! Dont ask me why but I assume he was in mining or building or something like that as you moved about so I assumed it was to other mines or stuff ..haha..god knows why I thought that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tracey I hope you are having a lovely dinner with the ILS tonight!.

    JO that is so nice that your dad works at the school ...I bet it makes her feel on top of the world know he is there.

    Hi ya all the other girls!

    Well Jo you are right ..busy day!. Diamond earring as not turned up ..arghhh so bummed about it as they are the earrings DH gave me before I went for my operation 2years ago ...we have searched the whole house and of course can only find the bloody back!. And unfortunately with these vet bills already over 3K I dont want to spend the money to replace it just yet...so it will have to wait. Onto Packer, he had to have 45mls of blood taken out tonight as his redblood cells are really high already . tomorrow we should hopefully confirm it is not cancer and he can start on the Chemo for this other disease ...Vet mentioned if we keep having to have this blood taken weekly ($130 a go!) she may try to get us a bulk discount ..so that will help!.

    And last but not least I spoke to daycare and they said she did not actually cry herself to sleep , they all seem so ****ty at the moment for some reason! Anyway Kaitlyn got sent home as her snot was apparently green so she cant come back until next week ..so I am working tonight and will have tomorrow off with her . Mind you she is fine!! so we will just enjoy the day together.

    well big day here...oh forgot to tell you we finally sold our investment unit yay...exchanged a week ago ...we have been trying to sell it since I was 3months pregnant!. I wont tell you the loss we made on it ...ouchie it is but I am just so glad it is sold!. We rang the tennants in our other place ( our home) and they are actually wanting to buy a house so it looks like we will have to advertise and sell that one by normal means now ..bummer as we thought they would buy it. I am actually looking forward to just having 6months of renting ! We can put our money in an account and just save...no double morgage , double rates, double water, ectect ..just rent!!!!!OH GOD HOW NICE! But I bet our dream home comes up one month after the money is in our hands ...we tend to move quick DH and I .

    Anyway ..man that was a long boring one..sorry girls!. Had two glasses of wine haha.

    Cass - Hope you find your earring and the test results come back as hoped. What time do you expect to get them? You have to let us know.

    Trace - What are you doing for Maddy's birthday? The cards I got Fletch to do have my new sig pic on them. It was so hard to get a pic of the kids together, without Lucie trying to maul Ned LOL!

    Bec - Yay for going public! now we have to pester you on names.....

    Jo - LOL at it being your Dad and not DH. Baby brain here!!!! I addressed all my envelopes last night so hopefully my cards arrive today and I can post them all MOnday (Oh i have pre-stamped them all too!). I have NEVER done the Christmas card thing before and am super organised so far this year. DH nearly died when I told him how much I had spent on each card though - he's such a tight A$#@!

    Ned is having a little grizzle and Lucie is watching sesame street. Ned was great at his vacs, haven't even given him any panadol. Only weighs 5.75kg though with nappy on and clothed (was 5.2kg about 3 weeks ago), so I was stressing about that a bit but trying not to let it worry me too much (yeah right!).

    Soph you are so organized lol....well done lol. Ive got the envelopes coming from fletchie too so will have to wait to do mine...but so looking forward to seeing them. I got a shot of the 4 kiddies with their chrissy clothes and hats on and after about 10 tries got one i loved lol. Dontcha just love digital pics!!! Ned is still a great weight Soph..i can remember Sammy slowing down heaps but its all good...they cant grow at that rate forever!

    Cass yay on selling the unit..must be a weight off your mind! Hope your earing turns up too...grrr at the *****y daycare ladies...its completely unacceptable! Thinking of you and hope your phonecall is a positive one.

    Fattyboombah Sharnie is going crazy in the long grass next door..we moved her down from the paddock that we leased...they had a fire next to her yesterday so freaked her out a bit! Jess's orientation went really well....she had a ball..and dad was so excited to have family at school again. Em and Liv will be going to a different school so shes the only grandchild he will teach..so its something special for them. Darren is home tonight ..yay!!!! Hes worked tues, wed and thurs nights on top of normal day work and i miss him terribly....has a wedding tom night but oh well..can enjoy tonight.

    Jo

    LOL Soph, we actually have a name picked out for her but you'll never get it out of me!!! (Not until she's born anyway!) Wow, you are organised! Everyone will love your cards with the pic of Lucie & Ned, I bet. Please don't stess about Ned's weight gain! Even with the clothes and nappy, that is still good. It sounds like he is doing great.

    Jo, thanks! Yeah, we have told a few people IRL. We're still not going to go out of our way to announce it, but if people ask we will probably tell. I've told my mum/stepdad and my sister and I'll tell my dad on the weekend if he wants to know. And I told a friend who had already guessed correctly anyway. I'm hopeless! Oh, and 7 teeth now, with another about to pop through. Just noticed you posted while I was typing...good to hear Jess' orientation went well. Enjoy your night with your husband!

    Cass, hope you are enjoying your day off with Kaitlyn. And I hope you find your earring! With the way our littlies tend to find every little thing on the floor, Kaitlyn might find it for you! Congrats on selling your unit too.

    How is everyone else doing?

    Josh & I are having a pretty quiet day at home today. I have a lot to do to get ready to go away tomorrow but am still trying to find the energy to do it! I'm going to try to pop out to the shops later to buy a blow up pool floatie-type thing for Josh as Dad has a pool & we'll probably do a bit of swimming over the weekend. One that he can sit in and splash around in. Does anyone have anything like that that they can recommend?

    Hi Everyone,

    Bec - Totally understand about the name. I have a girls name I LOVE now and would consider #3 just in the hope of having another girl to use the name LOL! Lucie splashes aroound in th eold baby bath in our little courtyard. She loves it! Washes her doll (and stuffed toys )

    Jo - My cards arrived today and look fabbo!!!!! Can't wait to send them out. Will write on the back of them (if it works) and stuff the envelopes over the weekend.

    Well I went to the MCHN today and Ned actually weighs 5.9kg - no nappy. Thought for peace of mind I'd have him weighed on the usual scales LOL. But had a good chat to the MCHN and am going to see a counsellor next week re my anxiety issues over eating and weight again. It all stems from Lucie's bad expereince I know, and I realise that I most definately had PND with her for some time. It's not as bad this time, I just hate the anxiety, it chews me up and consumes me and impacts on my relationship with DH. Anyway enough of my crap, but you guys are the only ones I tell about that stuff! Hope seeing someone helps though. Poor Ned, I'm forever shoving my bbs in his mouth and he ends up being a forced snacker as a result! Gotta try and hold out colse to 3 hours so he can have longer fuller feeds less often. I am a nutcase

    Thanks Brooke, that's actually where I was thinking of going!

    Soph, it's not crap & you are not a nutcase! You know we are all here to listen. The counsellor sounds like a good idea and I really hope it helps. In the meantime, keep talking to us, ok?

    I meant to say before...Tracey, do you have your house back to yourself now?

    Ok, I can smell something REALLY bad...I had better go!

    Soph, you are not a nutcase, I'm sure we all have had the same feelings re weight gain with our babies some stage or another. hope the counseling helps you out.

    Well my home is our castle again, was so terribly sad saying goodbye....! I was sobbing & then we were all sobbing, I love them to death, I also love my own space!!!

    Um, Maddy's part tomorrow is 10 of her friends, stereo in front yard, & a BBQ... Her choice & I am so glad coz my MS is wearing thin atm! grr but still glad, thankful & stoked to be preg! have booked in to FBC near us & I am glad it's really minimal intervention so I dont have my 1st appt til Jan 9th! When I'll be about 10-12 wks already!!! I must say I hate all those earlier check ups with my OB, whom no longer practises so i decided to go this way!

    Cass, could the earring have gone into the drain??? I hope you do find it & I hope packers result are better than you weree hoping for! Also yay on selling the place!!!

    Bec, yay for coming outta the closest re: baby girl... hee hee


    Soph, good on you for going to see someone about your anxiety, a step forward is a step in the right direction!!!

    Hiya ladies

    I love the weekends yay! lol

    Bec cant wait to find out what you are calling your little princess! Its so much fun choosing names isnt it..and girls names..wow I found that so much easier than boys! Hope you are having a lovely weekend away and managed to find a floatie for Josh..there are some great ones around that hopefully he will love....cos Sammy hates his lol...and with summer creeping up we will be spending a lot of time at the beach so hope he starts liking it again!!!

    Ohhhhh Soph....a girls name huh...lol....so ya think you will start trying again soon?? The cards sound so great too..I cant wait for mine..think Fletchie was trying to find some more magnets though..so am sure wont be long! The counsellor sounds like a fanastic idea to me...cos you had some quite trying times with Lucie..and then you can enjoy the kiddos that bit more.

    Storm Im so sorry that you arent well...please rest up and join us when you are feeling better wont you you poor chookie...thinking of you.

    Trace whoohoooo....your place to yourself again. I can imagine it must be a relief but then a sadness as well. Im glad you all got to spend some time with your family though...did you tell them about the pregnancy? Whoohooo on Maddy's birthday today...hope she has a ball!!!! The girls are going to different schools because a new one is being built in a subdivision where we used to live that is opening for em's year in 2008 from yr7..so next year is the start of our school finishing at year6. Im really happy about this and the little girls are happy to be able to be a part of a new school again and catch up with friends from their old school. Jess's year is the final year where they are taking kids from our area to the school she is going in. Im still not completely thrilled about where she is going....and our name is still on the private school waiting list just in case....My Dad being there is the only positive as there are 1100 there which to me just seems so huge lol! (10 year 8 classes)

    Well we had a nice night last night putting up our Chrissy lights...the house looks great...best we have done yet and the kids are thrilled. Sammy is just so excited seeing Father Christmas everywhere..he hasnt got a word for him yet. Ive relented and am letting the girls stay over at their birth dad's and his girlfriends tonight on the provisio that there is stictly no drinking.... (him not the girls LOL). He has moved in with his girlfriend now that the baby is here and while I wish them the very best I worry about my own babies. Im very nervous..and I so hope things have changed...while their birth dad is great with the girls he has a few issues re relationships. The last time I let the girls stay there I got a phone call at midnight from them because they were scared and wanting to be picked up because of fighting going on between their birth dad and girlfriend...sigh.....I wish all grown ups could act like grown ups.

    Have a lovely day everyone!!!

    HI Girls ,

    Soph I think that is a really positive move to see someone. These things are just caused by our crazy hormones and once you can talk to someone you will feel so much better!.

    Trace Yay at having your house back ! sad though as I am sure you will miss them in a few days!. The party sounds great , relaxing and just nice!. Hope the MS goes away soon for you ..just keep nibbling on crackers to keep it at bay!.

    Bec I hope you had a lovely weekend away at your dads.

    Jo I hope the girls dad was responsible this weekend and they enjoyed themselves. Fattyboombah Sharnie sounds like she is living the high life! Maybe I can borrow her once a month so we dont have to mow the lawns hehe.

    Well girls ...we lost our beloved fur boy on Friday night. I got the phone call from the specialist on Friday morning and she told me that his life would consist of weekly blood tests, Daily tablets for his heart problem they found and also the rare blood disease they found. Plus everytime his red blood cells got to high they would have to remove blood from him to reduce the amount of blood he had hence reducing the redblood cells. We looks at our beautiful 8.6Kg, broadnosed , big eyed black boy and we just decided we could not put him through that. He deserved better. So I spent most of Friday in the garden with him , I lay with him when Kaitlyn went to bed for her nap ...and then that night we took him to the vet and stayed with him while they put him down. I miss him soooooooooooooo much but I know it was the right choice ..even if I am crying as I type this!. He was the best cat in the world...so easy going , never got angry no matter what was done to him by Kaitlyn ..placid and wonderful ..anyway ..I love him and miss him but I am glad he is no longer in pain. Just so weird that this time 10days ago he was here and we had no idea what was coming .

    On a happier note I change the sheets on Friday and my earing popped out into the middle of the bed!!!!!! what luck.

    We also did our family photos today with the three of us so now I have my shot ready for chrissy cards! I think after our vets bills I may have to make my own this year rather then use Fletch ...bummer...next year.

    Ok off to bed ...hi to everyone else!.

    Oh Cass matey, bug hugs . You made me cry too! On a lighter note re the earring - that will teach ya to go crazy in the bedroom

    Trace - How was Maddy's birthday and party? HEaps of fun I bet.

    Jo - Sharnie sounds lovely and I don't even like horses! Your kids are so lucky.

    Hi STorm and Bec and everyone else.

    Thanks everyone for all your kind words.

    Had a great weekend with the kids although it was very HOT. Lucie had a really bad night last night. Cried for about 2 hours starting at midnight. Not like her at all. She has her eye teeth coming through though :eek:

    Morning, although I feel like I have liuterally been hit with a mack truck...

    I never have felt so totally & utterly exhausted before in my life!!! This baby has a lot to answer for!!!

    I was so pooped yestrrday that Dh organised the party stuff to be already for me out in the front yard, he cooked the BBQ too & I pretty much just sat there watching them, I carried the karaoke machine outside for them & they all sang & danced & they all said they had fun... so that's good... Maddy enjoyed it too which was the most important thing! I went to bed not long after the last kid left, plus I had had a nap from 10am til 11:30am... Then I went to the shops at 6pm to get a cake for Maddy to take to school, had a quick dinner & went back to bed!!! I am exhausted still today, I have a headache, a bad flu/headcold & morning sickness which lasts all day!!!!
    I have never felt like this before!!! If I did I forgot about it too quickly!!!!!



    Cass, I am very sorry for reading that packer has gone to heaven bt to spare him all the testing & pain is a very noble thing!!! Hugs to you & your family!!!

    YAY on your earring find though...


    Blaaarrrrggggh got called n to the afctory & it's all hot & noisy & made me feel worse!!!!

    Lost my train of thought now too!!!!

    Hope you are feeling better Jo.

    Well Maria's 2nd molar (10th tooth) has posked through so she is not exactly happy, but at least is currently quietly sitting on the floor removing everything from my wallet (at least a three times daily event).

    What is everyone doing for christmas this year?

    LMAO Soph..no no chance of ms here..gulp..lol. How are you and your littluns today?

    Louise..they always have such a fascination with wallets and keys dont they?? LOL

    We have two big days over Christmas..Christmas eve with my mum and family and Christmas day with my Dad and family. They are always heaps of fun. Christmas Day is here ...we play waterfights, waterbombs and generally run about being stupid lol. Then on boxing day we have my BIL and SIL and their kiddies coming to stay before we head off for a week camping in Busselton over New Years. What are your plans? Its so nice this year with our babies being the age they are and understanding it all that bit more!

    Where is everyone today?? Chrissy shopping..leaving me to do it all next week lol!

    I have missy Livvy loo home today as she hurt her thumb last night at basketball and feels that it needs a days rest to recover lol. Sammy is very happy with this turn of events.

    Jo
