    Hi Everyone,

    I have been busy so not able to post. The amount of washing with two kids is insurmountable - seems so much more than just one!

    Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day, especially if it is your first, and you got spoiled. My present was to have a bath, which I haven't had since before I was pregnant with Ella (wasn't allowed after waters broke at 16wks).



    Ella is still waking up twice a night, and feeding 3 times during the day since she is now on solids pretty well. I am still scared to give her sandwiches, although she handles them fine. She won't drink formula whilst I am out during the day so is just drinking water in a cup.

    We are cruising the furniture, climbing onto anything off the floor and still only have two bottom teeth. She has learnt to splash in the bath and saying dad, and daddy to DH which is nice.

    We finally bought a video camera so have been madly filming the two of them. Haven't managed anything for funniest home videos yet though - will keep trying. That $200,000 would come in handy!!

    Scone, well done on the stall!!

    Rhi - at the daycare my son goes to they do try and get them all down just after lunch for a big sleep, at about 11.30-12 for the babies room (under 18mths). Ella is having two sleeps, one at about 9-9.30 which could be one to two hours and then after lunch. When she starts at daycare in August I will tell them her routine then, so they can adapt it rather than trying to get her to wait until the big sleep. I can't remember when Myles dropped his morning sleep, probably about 1, but it depends on the child and also can change from month to month I think.

    Kim - well done on the waving!

    Take care all

    Hi Ya,

    how are we all, long time no post, but who has time.

    I have only rustled up some time today because xavier is sick and I had to take time off work.

    Campari have you been bitten? we are up to our 3rd tooth, and xavier bites if i offer a feed and he's not actually hungry, like he wants to suck but the milk is coming out so he bites down to stop it. It hurts. Needless to say I am cautious about feeding him if he's not ready now. It does sound like you are going through exactly what we are, I feel for you, no sugestions here, i've tried everything I can think of, just empathy from me.
    Don't feel bad about the dummy, at the end of the day, you can't function with no sleep. Maybe try fazing it out for day time sleeps, at a time when your better equiped to deal with screaming/patting shhhing etc etc.

    Well my monster just woke up, I'll try and come back a bit sooner next time.

    Bye

    Hi everyone!

    Kim - That is cool that your DH did footprints of Hayden for you... My DH told me a few days before mothers day that he was going to do footprints for me (since that is what I did for him for fathers day!), but that he couldn't do it alone, so he had to tell me so I would help him! He bought some paint, but then basically I did all the work, he just held Milla up and I got to do the messy stuff! And now there are pages of messy footprints lying around the house cause he didn't bother to frame them or do anything to them!!! I got brekky in bed though too, and we had champagne for afternoon tea, so that was nice.

    Ali - good luck with Ems challenge! How do you have to do it, just give her little bits of dairy and see how she goes??

    Becca- yep, I have been bitten... Milla has just got her second top tooth, and she is testing everything with it. The first time she bit me was in the bath - sometimes I let her have a feed in the bath with me cause she is so relaxed and I grab every opportunity to feed her during the day, but she had just been chewing on a rubber duck, then she latched on, and fully chomped down. Man it hurt. The next day she was feeding in the afternoon and was playing around a bit after the let down had finished I guess, and she bit me really hard again. It hurt so much. I yelled 'no' and put her on the floor, and her bottom lip trembled and she started to cry. My nipple was all red and a bit swollen, and I kept checking it for blood, it was such a hard bite.... She hasn't done it for the last 3 days now, but I am also very scared of feeding her and really have to pay close attention to how she is sucking..

    Also with her new teeth she has just started grinding them. Has anyone elses bub been doing that? Its such a horrible noise and I can just imagine her gorgeous little teeth being worn away by the time she is 2! I give her stuff to chew on all the time, but she just grinds away pretty often.

    Sleep has slightly improved since the 2nd tooth came through, we are getting 4 - 5 hour stints now, but I am still feeding her twice in the night, usually at 1-ish and then at 4-ish.

    Hope you all have nice weekends...

    Em's challenge has had to be postponed. she has diahorrea and mucous on her lungs. The dr wont give her ABs until the diahorrea is finished and giving her dairy will give her diahorrea so we will hold off until she has finished her ABs. we have 5 tins of formula atm so she wont be affected by waiting a couple of weeks.

    really hope this mucous doesn't turn into pnuemonia. we have already had 1 hospy stay, dont need another. I dont think I could handle another.

    My comp is playing up so I had better end it here. and the rain has started again.

    Hey !!!

    Wow, We've all been quiet for a while!

    Kim - How are Hayden's teeth? Jensen is teething again as well -4 teeth at once as well. Top 2 front teeth, eye tooth and the one beside it (canine?). The eye tooth is so close to being thru, some of it is, but some of it is still in the gum if that makes sense, and the front tooth next to it isn't far off.
    Work is not sorted yet I called my boss the other day and he still hasn't looked into maternity leave entitlements. grrr . So I will call him again tomorrow. I also have asked for how much I have earned this financial year and still haven't heard about that. Once Centrelink gets the right details, maybe I'll be able to actually buy groceries.
    What a nice mothers day pressent! my Dh didn't getme anything from Jensen, but I got a pressent "from" Jensen from mum. DH's excuse was he didn't know what to get.....

    Molly - On Mothers Day, my mother was holding Jensen and she reached to get herself a sandwich and he stole it from out of her hands! I have a pic somewhere. Happily ate it. Yesterday, we were at a baby shower and there were muffin sized quiches on the coffee table. He reached over (he was standing at the table), grabbed one and ate it. He's just too quick.

    Becca - How is Xavier now? Was it a cold?

    Misty - Sorry, we're not in homebush! Have fun tho! There will be other BB members there. I met some from Bris last year.

    Rhi - I notice that Jensen chomps when he's not getting his milk fast enough or if he's distracted - or when he notices I'm not paying attention to him. I've never been able to do anything while bf (since birth!), like watch tv or hold a conversation. No grinding here tho.

    Ali - Oh poor Em! Fingers crossed she gets better quick!

    Well. Guess what!? No more tantys in the middle of the night now! I figured it out! I put a heater in his room (probably not a SIDS safe thing to do) and closed his door almost all the way - its held open by my shoe - and he sleeps all night! Last night and the night before was a comfort feed due to the teething. But *bliss* sleeping thru the night! Wish I'd thought of it earlier.

    Tomorrow I have my appt to see the specialist about my carpal tunnel. It seemed to disappear for a while there, but its back now. Also, the Paed last week said we have to feed Jensen MORE (he eats heaps). He said he's very active and is burning off the energy and not gaining much weight. He was 7.8kg on Wednesday and has only just fully gone into an 0. The dr said to "feed him what drs tell ppl not to eat too much of" ie: butter etc. Well Mother and MIL are keen to feed him everything. MIL is trying to feed him chocolate. Looks like its time to make a stand.

    Better go, this has been long and I have a thread to start. Might catch u there!

    I have a ytd figure, but I have 2 types of payslip. There was a payslip for my salary and a payslip for when I was working casually just recently. I mentioned that to my boss, he sent an email off while we were on the phone, and he was going to email me back the email he received. So far nothing. I'm so annoyed.

    The way things are looking atm, it seems as I'm going to have to go back to work pretty soon, just to survive.

    BTW - I meant to ask have you had your FET yet?

    Wow Jensen, that's a lot of teeth! All the better to bite you with hey Scone!!? I have a health centre checkup on Wednesday Scone, so I am going to ask about the whole EBM childcare thing, and find out some more info. I'll let you know what they say, cause I saw your message on that thread. I bet they will just say "do what you think is right"...! Grrr. I know its right for her to drink BM, but I just HATE expressing and it's just never worked for me.

    Ali - Sorry to hear about Em. I hope she is OK now... You certainly don't need a hospital trip again!

    Becca - Hope Xavier is better now too. And hope you're getting some solid sleep too. I don't know how you do it, working full time. I can't function at all after a bad night with Milla, I am just a zombie. The other day I walked out of the house to the car carrying the TV remote in one hand and the car keys in the other !!!! I really thought to myself "I shouldn't be driving"...!

    Milla has been a crazy little poo machine today - I even rang to make a doctors appointment cause I thought she might have diarrhoea, but I spoke to someone at 13HEALTH and they reassured me that its probably a teething thing, or because she ate too much fruit. She did 5 poos yesterday, and 4 today, all quite small and runny. She has been eating pawpaw as finger food - she loves it, but maybe its not really agreeing with her little tummy. She's on potato, rice and banana tomorrow!

    See ya!

    Well, I have a little teething machine! He now has a grand total of 5 teeth, the latest one came thru yesterday! Two top, two bottom and a top left eye tooth!

    Rhi - OMG where did the biting come from? At mothers group this week, he actually bit one little girl twice! Might nightmares of him being the group bully are coming true! He's now biting me, and I don't know how to stop him!

    Does anyone know how to keep a hat on these kids? Or keep them still on the change table. My sister has one of those strap things to hold them down. It holds him down, but he can still twist so he's lying face down... grr.
    Jensen tried to follow the cats down our (2) steps the other day. Didn't end well. Hey, that might be where he got his bruise from... Should have thought of that earlier!

    I went horse riding on Wednesday. Boy was my backside sore! And my hips haven't hurt like that since labour! lol Went walking yesterday and today. So tired !

    Is anyone in the Coles Baby Club? They had sample bags and we got one. Only the sample nappies were for girls and I have a boy! I rang them and I can pick up another sample bag today/tomorrow for a "lucky dip" to see if I can get boys ones.

    Better go, we've just re-installed windows onto the computer and have files and stuff on a removable hard drive and there's doubles of stuff and it's my job to sort it out (coz DH doesn't think I do anything thru the day!!)
    Have a great weekend!

    Hi
    it has been a while since I have been on here - sorry!

    With the hat thing, the first few hats I bought my DS were ones that did up under the chin. Osh Kosh had a real cute one with velcro under the chin and bits sticking in the air for winter. He could never take it off and now we use it for Ella (it is red).

    With the biting, Ella still only has two bottom teeth but still managed to bite me yesterday evening and it hurt. I took her off and put her on the floor after that. She is teething too, I think the top teeth are thinking about coming through.

    Ella isn't walking, just cruising the furniture and then falling on her bum when she lets go.

    I think this is just the best age, saying dadada to DH and saying nin nin when she wants a bf (that is what we call it in our house). And the faces she pulls.

    I am still tired because we are still doing 2-3 night feeds, but I am only feeding morning, lunch and dinner during the day so it doesn't feel like I am feeding forever anymore.

    Glad to hear everyone else is well.

    Take care.

    Hi Ladies,

    It has been ages since i have been here. I've been reading every now and then though.

    Ela is doing really well, she has 8 teeth and side stepping along couches, tables and everything else she can grab onto! She wakes 2-3 times a night (i get angry at night, but then when morning comes and i see her cute smiles, all is forgotten).

    Just wanted to let you all know that i am pregnant with number 3 . Extremely unplanned! Found out last night as i didn't receive my AF and both DH and i are shocked. Just told my boss as i wanted him to know early on and if a prob, i will have to abort (not that i want to). He was cool with it. Told mum this morning, she is wrapped but it means that she will be looking after 2 bubs and not just Ela now. Dad threw an absolute tantrum, not wanting to look after anymore grandkids as he is 65 now.

    I'll keep you all posted!

    Take care all.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the well wishes. We are not overly elated or excited as it was really very unplanned, too early or even to have #3. I had even made an appt at my gynae for end of July to get my tubes tied! Need to cancel that appt! I must admit that i did want a #3 but hubby was being a bit selfish.

    I'm not sure of my due date as i only got 1 AF since giving birth to Ela but i think probably mid to end Jan '09. Need to book an appt with the u/s ppl to determine due date. I will let you all know once i find out.

    poor Molly and I, up so many times a night! Molly, is your little Ella a chubba? My Ela is. Have you tried giving her a big feed before her night sleep? Sometimes it works for Ela. I giver her 1 weetbix with milk and fruit puree to keep her tummy full. May be try that??

    Take care all

    Hey All!

    Congratulations Sehra!! I'm sure once the shock wears off you will become really excited and #3 will be a lovely gurgly little newborn, how could you resist!!
    I'll join you and Molly with the night wakings - Milla is still feeding twice a night - or three times if you include a 5am wakeup. Most nights its 11, 3 and 5. I might try the weetbix idea, although she does have a pretty big dinner at 5:30, with meat/veg then fruit and yoghurt. I'm sure she's not starving, just wants BBs and some loves!

    Ali - thats exciting about your move. If you come to Brisbane you might live near us, as we are quite close to the Army base at Enoggera, and there is a lot of Defence housing around here. A girl in my mum's group is part of the Army Base mums too - they have a pool and stuff they can go to, and special playgroups for all the army kids. You'll find some new mates pretty quickly. Good luck with the challenge.

    Milla just has the 4 teeth still, but I can nearly see the next top one so that is our next one. She is walking along the furniture, but not when we hold her hands. She just isn't happy unless shes standing up. She stands on everything - even leaning on the wall now. She says mamamam, dadadad and bububub. She's 8.1kg, 70cm. She never ever stops moving. I battle with her to change her nappy too, usually give her a new "toy" each nappy change (bottle of baby stuff, packet of wipes, shoe, panadol syringe.. whatever i can get my hands on that is within reach of the change table! She wont take a real toy at all!) At least she is back to just 2 or 3 poos a day now, it was either paw paw giving her a bad tummy, or she may have had a mild viral thing. It lasted a week, and yeah, we were ploughing through nappies. Hope everyone's seen Huggies on special at Coles ATM, 2 boxes for $60.

    Better go. She is awake, and I am starving!!!

    Hey all!
    Good luck with the FET Kim!!!

    Not a lot to report from here either... Milla had a crazy weekend totally out of routine cause we went out to a friends for dinner on Saturday and she just didn't want to sleep in the portacot. So, she entertained everyone til 9:30pm (usual bedtime is 7). Then Sunday morning I had to wake her up at 6am to go to the airport to pick up my sister. The she was too excited and only had one day sleep... Hopefully today we will get back to some normal sleeps since its totally pi$$ing down with rain and I'm not leaving the house for anything!

    Still having to feed her once or twice in the night (usually twice....), but she hasn't been too cranky, and I don't think there are any teeth on the way for a while. Her top two teeth are so cute, but she just doesn't look like a baby anymore

    Bye !

    Hi All,

    Had my ultrasound done on Tuesday and they could find the sac but no embryo at this stage. The sac measures at 5w3days which the sonoghrapher said that it was a bit early to see bubs and to wait another 2 weeks before repeating the scan. I will go and get it done next week which should get me to about 7.5w. I am still shocked and constantly thinking about how i am going to look after this baby with Ela still waking at least twice at night. I get really tired by the end of day and rest during the day is impossible with Ela and work too.

    Kim, Ela has been having shorter naps during the day too. She used to sleep 3 times a day and has dropped back to about twice a day and usually 1 hour at each sleep. I guess they are getting bigger and want to explore.

    Ela is now standing on her own and claps when she is standing but just won't take that step which we are all waiting for!

    Birthdays for all of us soon! August is coming round really quickly.

    Re: the nappies at Coles. I was tempted to buy newborn nappies at that price but i had to persuade myself out of it!!

    Take care..
