    No worries Tiggy, I have the worst baby brain as well, so I totally understood!
    How was everyone's nights? We were fine until 3am and then i was up with sick coco until 5.30am when I finally fell asleep and then Tilly woke me up straight away, and that happened continuously until I got up at 7.30am. PRETTY tired this morn!
    Hope everyone had better nights than us xoxo

    Morning Ladies,
    My goodness the older these babies get the less time you have to do things.
    Hope everyone is well and is having good sleeps.
    Jett would like to thank everyone for his birthday wishes.
    Meg – Not good about Coco. I gave Jett Demazin Infant when he was 4 months and he had a cold, it worked great (my sister works in a pharmacy and she recommends it for the flu and Dimetapp for coughs).
    I loved your web page, I love going to have a look so then I can put a face to the name. Coco should do modelling I am sure she would get heaps of work.
    Good news on the sleeping school, you haven’t got long to go. When I got a day that I was going to just kept saying to myself only how ever many days to go. I am thinking of you.
    Tiggy – Your babies are so precious; hard to believe it has been six months already.
    Christie – I have copied some of your mixtures, I added rice cereal to Jett’s pears this morning and he loved it, so thanks for sharing that.
    I gave him the rice cereal yesterday and he just spat it back at me, not really that funny as I had just gone for a long walk to the supermarket and got it
    Kate – Go Jasmine, I checked out the pictures of her sitting in her chair, she is so strong. Jett sits by himself on the floor but I have to keep and eye on him and make sure he doesn’t fall; he can’t hold himself up for longer than about 3 minutes.
    Where abouts are the videos on Jasmine I don’t think I have seen them??
    Sarajo – Loved the new pictures, Abby has such a big smile. Don’t worry after reading about how much the rest of girls are given their bubas I have up Jetts food intake. I have no idea of how much to give him???
    Mel – I have never heard of anything like the giraffe that you got Logan what a great idea, who is it made by??
    I am sure that you will do what is best by you and Logan, as I said to you it might work out well if he is working away, these absence makes the heart grow fonder. I am not to sure about your history but you do what is right for you.
    If anyone of you lovely ladies has any advice I would love to have it. I have only been giving him his 4 bottles and solids at night (veggies, 2 ice cubes). As I said I have no idea of when to up it or what?? Yes, I am clueless. Please help.
    My MCHN is so useless.
    I hope everyone else is doing well,
    Betta go and get dressed
    Take Care.

    Dani, it's taken me a while to work out what to do re food. I am happy with where we are now. I give her an organic oat cereal I get from woollies (the brand is bellamy) with fruit. For lunch I usually resort to a tin, for variety!! anD dinner is vegies. She really only likes vegies if there's sweet potato included, so i do sweet pot plus pumpkin and or choko, brocolli, zuchinni, carrots. That's it so far. The fruit I give is pear apple and banana. I have uped her to 3 meals a day, but this was after one month. i will start giving yoghurt and cheese at around 7 months. I will start meat then too, and may in the meantime, let her chew on a chop bone.
    I give her breast milk before each solids meal (at about 7am, 11am and 4.30pm) and then give a bottle just before bed. I also offer a formula top up after each solids meal (I give solids at roughly 8am, 12 midday and 5pm). The bottle top up is usually half an hour later. She usually only has 20-100mls. So Im down to three breastfeeds a day plus one at night if she wants it (more so now she's sick).
    Also a good mix of food is avocado and pear or avo and apple mixed together, she liked that!! Once I start cheese I'll probably do avo, cottage cheese and maybe some apple too. There's lots of good recipes on teh net, and there's a baby and toddler thread on belly belly under recipes.
    anyway, enough crapping on from me. Im hoping for a decent night but I know it's not likely, poor coco's nose has run all day and her cough sounds awful.
    have a good sleep everyone xoxoxo

    Hey ladies!

    Sorry for being a little quiet this weekend, being doing lots of driving to get the practise in. Had my lesson yesterday lunch, and then we went to the shops both yesterday afternoon and this afternoon as well.

    Maddy is going well....won't be long before she's sitting up too (WTG there Jasmine!), she was hilarious today sitting up on her own as she kept falling over to the side and then just lying on the rug and looking at us! hehehe She's fine if she's balanced and likes to play with her toes; but if she leans even the slightest to the side; she's plop on the floor!

    She's asleep in her pram having a little snooze (which'll probably mean a LATE night before she goes to bed!) but at least it meant that John & I could eat our chicken curry in peace. The little one has been so clingy lately; so sometimes it's nice to have your own space.

    Bought her a new teething ring (a fake chewy set of keys) & set of soft spoons today. She prefers the spoons...*L* She just sits there and knaws on it.

    Meg - hope poor little Coco's cold gets better and you all have a good night's sleep! Your plans with solids sound good...will be starting Maddy on the rice cereal for the first time in the next two weeks. Will be looking forward to seeing how the fruit & vegies go down with her.

    Dani - how's little Jett going? WOW, he really is going well at sitting up! From what I've read, it's normally 6 months+ in development age that most babies sit up so it sounds like Jett is doing just fine there!

    Darnit....all of the other messages are on the first page...will have to read the other posts and edit this post with some more personals!

    Tiggy/Tiff - WOW WOW WOW at the birth/early days photos of the twins. They are just amazing and you are doing such a fabulous job with those babies. Thriving doesn't even come close when you look at how far they've come. Ivy & Noah look like they've got delightful little personalities! hehe That ticker photo cracks me up everytime! *LOL*

    Sarajo - I don't think you've been skimping on little Abby! She looks wonderful and it's so good to see those photos of her looking all healthy, considering how refluxy she has been since birth. Any more vids of her? I get a real giggle out of the ones that you send me. Plus, when I hear you're accent on the vids, it reminds me of my 'big sis' in Canada who used to send me the cutest vids of her & her little son. I hear you on the money thing...DH and I sat down and worked out how we would go if he gets a much better paid job.

    Melly - Much like the other girls, I hope that things work out great for you with regards to Michael. I'm saddened by the way that he has treated you in the past and I believe you deserve so much more than that. You are such a strong woman, and I truly hope that if you do stay together it's because its what YOU want, and not because you feel you should give him another chance. That said, if he has changed than I can understand. I never used to believe that people COULD change, but I've seen it in my sister's man. How will him getting into the arm affect you? P.S - That little giraffe that Logan has sounds so sweet...wouldn't mind getting my hands on one for Maddy.

    Christie - Great to hear you had a fantastic nights' sleep on Saturday night? (it might have been Friday). You're certainly giving him an assorted menu there....what a lucky little man! hehe Has he liked everything you've offered to him? WTG little Owen on the sitting up as well. Wow, he'll be running before you know it!

    Kate & Jillian, I hope you're both going along fine with your little precious ones! Here's to a great Sunday night sleep for EVERYONE! *prays*

    Hi Girls,

    Thanks for all your lovely comments on Ivy and Noah!
    I hope you all had a good weekend because I did not.
    One of the boys brought home Gastro on Friday and it is currently doing the rounds.
    David came home this morning (didn't even make it to work) with it
    So it has done two kids and David. It seems to have about a 12hour incubation time, so I am just waiting for the next one to fall.
    The really bad thing (and the thing I am stressing out over) is that if the babies get it, we will have to go to hospital.
    Being prem, I just won't want to muck around and having done Gastro with the girls when they were babies, I know they dehydrate so quickly.
    Please keep us in your thoughts and pray that they don't get it.
    I guess the good thing is it only lasts for about 24 - 48 hours...

    Bummer Tiggy, i am thinking of you all and hope the little ones don't get the gastro. It is such a damn horrible illness for anyone, let alone little bubba's. i so hope it passes them by. You poor thing, having to look after so many people. I always thought I had it tough looking after myself and tilly when she had gastro. You're amazing, and I so hope no one else in your family picks it up.
    We too have illness here, Coco had an awful night and is coughing and nose running continuously. I think I'll have to go to the Doc's although Im not sure what he could do. I just want to check it's not chest infection. I too have been watching for dehydration as she can't drink due to her nose (she has little sips). Not fun. I have just given her a sippy cup for the first time, so hoping maybe that will get some liquid into her. Saying that, she has not gone off solids!! Little piggy, eating as much as ever.
    Hope everyone else is doing well and had good sleeps!!
    Beck, good on you with your driving!! You're going to do really well in your test I know it!!Glad you got to eat your curry in peace ! It is nice to have a bit of "quiet" time sometimes! Paricularly during dinner. Yesterday we had lunch at the inlaws and I couldn't get coco to sleep so MIL said to put her in the hall where I'd only hear if she was screaming, and that way I could eat in peace. By the time I'd enjoyed a quiet lesiurly lunch, Coco had gone to sleep....!!!!???
    have a good day everyone, gotta try to get Coco back to sleep as she didn't have much at all last night. Think I got 1-2 hours of broken sleep...xoox

    Happy 6 Months Logan!!!

    Awe Tiggy, I dont know what Gastro is, but I hope they stay free of it!

    Meg I hope Coco feels better soon! Lol at her still being a little piggy!


    Hey Dani! I just love reading the milestones on Jett's website! I love how they have picture links!


    Christie I love the Dixie Chicks! I'll have to get that new album!! How's Owen?


    EDITED TO ADD: Woops sorry forgot ya Beck! lol at my accent~! Im not the one with the accent!! hehe! I havent taken any videos lately, but maybe I'll make a special one just to send to you where Abby and I are talking in it! Sounds like Maddy will be sittin pretty soon!!

    Abby is sitting for a good 5-10 minutes at a time, and now she also got up on her hands and knees today! I am so scared she is going to start crawling! I am not ready yet!! Anyway, yay my biggie girl! She isnt sitting as long as Jasmine yet, but it is a start! Jasmine is a role model to all the other babies, isnt she lol!! Abby is in SUCH a good mood today! She is just smiles and giggles all day long! We did take a 3 hour nap after a 6 year olds birthday party! That probably has something to do with it!

    Well Im off to make some lasagna! Yummy yummy! HAve a good one y'all!

    EDITED TO ADD: OMG Abby is spitting up sooo much latley! She sees the gastro specialist Wednesday so we'll see. I thought she was supposed to grow out of this reflux thing! Oh and guess what else! We sold my car! So now we are down to a truck that is paid off! We just had to do it. Staying at home is worth it though! I dont know what I will do without my car, I rely on it way too much! I'll probably lose weight having to walk and ride bikes places lol!

    Morning Again,
    Jett has gone down for a morning sleep. I am starting three meals today, hopefully it will work to make his sleeps a little longer as he is only having 1 hour sleeps again.
    Tiggy - I will pray for you that the gastro stops where it is.
    Meg - Poor Coco, It is so bad when babies are sick. Good news about the sippy cup. Jett has one too. I give it to him after his solids and he has a drink, he dosn't like the water but he will have to get used to it.
    Hope everyone else is doing okay.
    I am thinking of you both with your babies.
    Oh, My best friend just text me to tell me that her baby of is healthy, she is three and a half months pregnant and has just had the first ultra sound.
    I can't wait.

    Awe yay for your friend! Is she going to find out the sex? Abby has the same sippy cup as Jett. She sucks on it but has yet to figure out that she has to tilt it! lol!

    Happy 6th Month Birthday Logan!

    Meg - I'd certainly take her to the GP if I were you. I had the same problem with Maddy (she got continual colds for the first 3 months) and I didn't take her to the GP as I knew she didn't have a fever and figured there wasn't anything they could do for her anyway. Turns out she ended up with bronchitis, and I felt super guilty because perhaps if I'd taken her earlier the GP could have prescribed her some kind of med to prevent that happening. Sorry to hear you had broken sleep.

    Sara - *LOL* Well, to an Aussie dominated message board, you are the one with the accent! hehe Mind you, my Mum is Canadian (I know not the same as American, but at least the same kind of accent) so the accent doesn't sound all that different to me all the time. WTG little Abby on the sitting up, and oh my goodness on the 'almost' crawling! Sounds like she'll be creeping any day now!

    Dani - The colours do make it easier to read don't they? (As long as they're not yellow on my computer because that's almost impossible to read! Oh, and so is the light pink) Hope that Jett has a nice long sleep for you.

    Tiff - Oh, no....Gastro! Hope that miraculously the rest of your family is spared from that, especially the little twins. If that can't happen, then I hope that it goes very quickly from your household and that no-one gets it too badly. You need a holiday treat Ma'am!

    I'll be back later....Maddy is having a tantrum in her pram...Oh, forgot to mention that I gave her some rice cereal last night! She was HILARIOUS! hehe Little piggy wanted more, but the packet said just 1/2-1 teaspoon of made cereal for the first try. She got her fingers in it and everything. Had a couple of little spews later, but I think she'd gorged herself on breastmilk anyway.

    DH took a couple of no-sound vids on our digital camera of her eating, so I'll see if I can send them to everyone later on! Oh, and Maddy has the same sippy cup too. She loves to drink the cold water out, so that's a good sign I guess!

    Hey Sarajo - I think she will. She is Aunty Eb's, she was with me when Jett was born so I am returning the favor and am going to be there when her baby is born, I can't wait. We have been friends since high school... I can't wait, I am going to her place later to check out the ultra sound....
    By the way I am still in my PJ's and have just had breaky, told you I don't get dressed till lunch some days... hehehe

    Hi Meg, Bec, Sarajo and Dani,
    Sadly, I have two more down now
    Thanks for thinking of us, hopefully it will leave us swiftly (and the babies will be spared).

    Hugs to you all

    oh no Tiggy, how awful. Hope no one else gets it. At least it's a short bug, but still there's nothing worse.
    I thought I'd better try Coco sitting, with all the others doing so well!! Well, she sits fine, but does roll over side ways after a while!! Just goes to show how much I practice these things with her (I think it's second child syndrome, Tilly got all the special attention)!! Mind you, Tilly spends ALOT of time with Coco, so it's a different kind of attention.
    Luckily Coco loves water, and has had a bit from her cup. She holds it too which is very cute!
    Wow that Abby is nearly crawling. That's exciting!! I have to say though, i dont want Coco crawling for a while. I'd so love to move before she crawls (except that coudl be in 5 years) this place is just soooooo not baby proof.
    On tims next pay day Im going to buy Coco a high chair. I've really bought very little for her so Im actually quite excited!! Plus the rocker is just getting too dirty! 1.5 more weeks till pay day. this monthly pay is AWFUL.
    It's absolutely pouring rain here (have to say it's really nice for a change). How's the weather for everyone else?
    Just got Coco up from a 2 hour nap, thank goodness for that!! Had to make up for her lack of sleep last night xoxoo
