    Hi guys!!
    Kate, just thought I'd pass this info on. Mum is trying to help me find out why coco REFUSES to sleep after 3am now. Anyway, she looked up night terrors and it says they are usually in the beginning of the night and last 10-20-mins and they don't wake up properly. Thought it might be what Jasmine was having.
    We are having a SHOCKER and I am losing it. WEnt to Doc today but he couldn't find anything, so I think she's just stubborn. Im not coping too well.
    hope everyone else is doing better than us! oxox

Sounds like Maddy has been good to you in the sleep department at the moment.. When does hubby start his new job??

    Mel hey I reakon that is awesome that you are going to do some study, get you out of the house and get your brain ticking.. How cool that they have childcare on campus!! Hope all is going well between you and DH??

    Beck, great about Maddy's good sleep!! I so hope coco follows suit tonight!!
    My poor sister has had to take her little Zara (4 months) to hospital. She went to the Doc who said she looks ok but has bronchiolitis, so needs to be in hospital. I so hope she isn't too bad and gets to go home soon. I am on call to go down to mums at any time through the night,, to mind my nephew if mum has to go to the hospital. I said I'll no doubt be awake anyway. Tim will haveto do the coco sleep thing. He had already offered to have her tonight, typical!
    Anyway, praying all is ok and bubs is better soon.
    Sarajo, where are you, we MISS you!!
    xoxo

    Cuddles to your sister and to baby Zara.

    Catch up with you all in the morning after we get home from Hannah's 6 month shots.

    Meg - Hope that Coco finally gets back into a better sleeping pattern ASAP..in fact, starting tonight would be great! Our thoughts are with your little niece, hope that Zara feels better soon and isn't in hospital very long at all!

    Rach - Good luck to you & Hannah at her needles tomorrow! Hope all goes smoothly and she doesn't cry, nor have any reactions to the immunisations.

    Our night away was lovely; except I find sleeping in 5-star hotel beds really rough! *L* I know, I'm a freak but their mattresses are way too hard and my neck always ends up hurting the next morning. Oh, and the blinkin' bar fridge in the room drove me up the WALL! It kept making this clicky noise every 1/2min ALL NIGHT LONG! I can laugh about it now but room service almost got abused, let me tell you! *L* *rolls eyes*

    Well I'm off to enjoy 'Home and Away' with a muesli bar & coffee while Miss Maddy is snoozing! Have a lovely night ladies....

    Hey Ladies,
    Nothing new is happening in this house. Jett and I still both have the flu, I am so over it and I am sure Jett is too.
    I have been going for a really big walk everyday, I think it is about 3kms? I go normally at 5pm when Jett goes feral. He normally has a sleep which is great because by the time I get home it is time for his dinner.
    Meg – I am so sorry to hear about your niece, I hope that she gets better really soon. Meg I hope Coco's sleep gets better for you, It is hard I know Jett was feral, it does get better.
    Beck – Sorry to hear about Maddy not being happy, Jett was like that for about 2 weeks. I wanted to bang my head against the wall.
    Christie – Poor you with Owen too. You don’t want to get into the habit of comforting them every time they cry but it breaks e to hear him sob.
    I so wish that we had a Big W here in Geelong. The closest one is about 40minutes away which really sucks. Before Jett was born I spent over 300 bucks there so it might not be a bad thing that we don’t have one.
    Rach – I hope all goes well with Hannah’s injections. At least this will be the last round for a while. Oh the Target sale, I can’t wait. It is going to be in the next week I think?
    Oh I know what you mean about the wine thing. When I went out for dinner the other night I had one and I was very very happy.
    I have to go need an early night.
    Bye all

    Hi Dani,
    Hope you feel better soon and poor little Jett. Thinking of you hun, hope we get to chat soon.

    Meg, I hope your neice is ok, I am thinking of her as we are going through the dreaded RSV as I type. Fingers crossed that we are on the tail end of it. I hope that she gets the all clear and can come home soon. I have done bronchiolitis with all of my kids. Immy and Maddy celebrated their first birthdays in hospital with it and Lily was re admitted after discharge from her birth with it and had to be in oxygen for a week.

    We didn't have to go to hospital this time, I've learnt over the years how to manage it at home, although it has been pretty close some nights. Noah still has a wheeze, Ivy is still miserable and her reflux is terrible too. Both Ivy and Noah's ear drums burst. Noah's both sides, Ivy - left. I have had it with snot, vomit and gunk.
    To top it off, I gave Ivy a little avocado in with her mash and she had a huge allergic reaction! Her poor little face is still recovering. The chiro asked me if I thought it was a reaction to cows milk and I could of slapped him! I have a husband and two out of three kids with bad asthma, does he think I am mad enough to introduce cow's milk to (a) seven month old babies, (b) premmie babies (c) babies with a positive family history for allergies?????
    Ok, off my high horse now.

    I am so worried about my little Ivy girl. She keeps vomiting blood and although I've taken her to the GP and they tell me (over and over again) that it's nothing to worry about, I am. Something isn't right.

    Anyhow, sorry, this has turned into one long rant (so, so tired) and Ireally wanted to just come in and say, HI and that I'm thinking of you all.

    Hi guys,
    Tiggy, so sorry to hear about the poor bubba's. I would be going for a second opinion, you've got to trust mothers instinct. Im sure it will be ok, but maybe getting a referral to a paed would be a good idea.
    My sister was sent home at midnight due to there being no room. Mind you they had her isolated,, and then gave Zara ventolin and said "off you go". Poor Rosie, Anyway, she's booked in to see a respitory specialist this morn, so hopefully they can help her. Zara had temps overnight, so hopefully she's ok now.
    coco woke at 4.30am and at 5.30am I gave up trying to settle and let her scream for half an hour andthen she fell asleep!! So better than it has been (amazing how quickly we can get used to a new pattern), imagine saying 1.5 hours a wake is GOOD!! Anyway, won't hold my breath that it will get any quicker, but we'll just keep trying (not much else I can do). Tim attempted to bring her in bed with us, but that meant four of us in the same room, and she would've woken tilly.
    Beck, I know what you mean about the beds at hotels. As nice as it is to be in a hotel, I do love my bed. The fridge wouldve killed me!!
    Gotta run, I have heaps of cleaning but would really like to get a nap in if possible.
    PS Dani, sorry to hear you adn Jett are still ill, hope it disappears soon.

    Tiggy, you poor hon! So sorry to hear how sick Ivy & Noah have been lately; you are doing so well to be so together about it! I don't have much experience with sick children; but absolutely, if you feel uneasy about Ivy and her vomitting blood; seek another opinion until you get one that sits well with you. NO-ONE knows better than a mother when her child is sick and if for even a second you feel that the diagnosis you've been given is inaccurate, look for another doctor.

    My friend had hydrokephalis (sorry about the spelling - but fluid on the brain) as a 5yr old. Her father was bathing her & her older sister and noticed how much larger the circumference of her head was than her older sister's. Took her to a doctor who brushed him off. It was only a second doctor who listened and discovered the condition. The surgeons said an extra week and she would have been brain damaged; another week or two more and she would have died. Just goes to show that a parent who is concerned might be brushed off by some as being 'over the top'; but sometimes they are right and doctors can make mistakes. If you are concerned, better to be an oversensitive/overly concerned mother in the end with an ok child; than let something lie that is making you uncomfortable and uneasy.

    {{{HUGS}}} Tiggy, hopefully all of this sickness will clear up for you soon and I hope your DH realises you deserve a holiday!

    Meg - your poor sister.... How is little Zara doing today? Any news from her specialist appointment yet? Glad to hear that Coco is slowly learning to put herself back to sleep. It's horrible hearing them cry, especially at night but sometimes I believe it has to be done for your sanity. I know that's not the way many gentle parenting style people believe in; but you have to do what works best for your family.

    Dani - another one struck down with the flu! Big get well vibes to you and little Jett...hope that you're both feeling better soon! Just think, another month or two and it'll be spring and heading towards delicously warm weather, no colds/flus and our little bubba's 1st birthdays! *LOL* at the money you spent at Big W. My credit card company have stuffed up and haven't sent me my replacement card yet as my old one expired at the end of June. Probably a good thing though....I have NO restraint when it comes to baby shopping for Maddy!

    Rach - how did little Hannah's injections go? Is she having a nap now?

    Has anyone got any plans to have a 1st birthday party for their bubbas? I'm at odds whether to do one for Maddy as her's is the day before Christmas. I'm thinking about doing a Christmas Eve dinner for the family and doubling up as a family birthday thing for Maddy. Maybe not even a full dinner; just lots of snacky things as we'll no doubt be stuffing ourselves on Christmas Day. Perhaps just cob loaf dips, cheese & crackers, fruit platter, cold meat...that sort of stuff? And some wine for the parents of course! *L*

    Well Maddy is in bed and we're about to leave and go round to see my Grandma as she just got back from a visit to Canada. She's part of the WAAF (Womens Australian Air Force) and they have reunions and all kinds of things...I think this time it was some kind of air hostess reunion for an international airline. My grandma was a hottie as a 20yr old! *LOL*

    Off to hang up a load of wash, put another in and do the dishes. Made steamed vegies & cheese sauce for dinner last night and all of the plates & pots are still to be washed. Apparently my DH isn't about to do them, and they're not magical pots so I'm off to clean them. *sigh*

    Hi guys,
    specialist said that hopefully Zara will improve from now and he didn't give any medicine or anything. The poor bubba is so clogged up with mucous. Not nice.
    another night ahead...I dread them now! I just so hope Coco decides to sleep.
    Tim and I are being really lazy tonight and having take away, we so rarely do so Im really excited! I'ts chinese...dim sims, spring roll, beef and black bean and special fried rice...YUMMO!!
    We had a roast chook in the slow cooker the other night and I went to get it out and the whole thing fell apart!! I gave some to Coco too (was a corn fed chick) and she loved it!!
    have a good sleep everyone!
    xoxo
    PS Rach, Im on a wait list for tresillian, Im thinking next week or the week after. Depending when someone pulls out due to sickness. As soon as they do Im in. To be honest Im nervous. Also not sure about sending tilly to my mums as they are all so sick down there.

    Hi girls, thanks for your well wishes.
    I took the babies to the doctor. Noah has middle ear infection and Ivy has middle ear infection and pneumonia. The doctor thinks that she aspirated some vomit with her reflux and add that to the terribe virus that she has had...well, you know the rest.
    We are home but she has not kept down any of her antibiotics, so if we don't get some into her we will have togo to hospital.

    Tiggy you poor thing, I am thinking of your little ones, particularly Ivy, and hope the recovery is quick. The poor little darling. I so hope she keeps the meds down and doesn't have to go to hospital. I am also thinking of you and hope that you keep well and well rested, it must be an extremely tough time for you. xoxox

    sarajo, great to hear from you, yey on Abby's tooth!! We are still gummy here!!

    coco actually did ok in the sleep department. She still woke at 4am, and I think I went in at 4.40am for a one second pat and that was it, I didn't go in again. So I think she was awake about an hour, but it was relatively quiet and I didn't have to be up with her. YEY!!!

    have a good day everyone and lets hope everyone gets better really soon. The weather here is quite spring like, so lets hope the worst of winter is passing, we need some nice health inducing weather!! xxoxoxo

    Morning ladies!

    Good to hear that little Coco is getting on track with her sleepsMeg....just think, you'll be very appreciative if Coco stays a gummy shark for a while rather than getting any top teeth just yet! *L* Has the potential to be very ouchy! hehe I have a feeling the 4am wake-up thing might be an age/developmental thing. Maddy's been waking up WIDE-AWAKE at that hour no matter what time we put her to bed.

    Sarajo - great to hear from you hon! I can't believe you've managed to survive being away from Don for so long! Love the piccies of the babies and hope you're enjoying your holiday with Abby. Sorry to hear you've been sick; hope that rattle in Abby goes away quick-smart.

    Tiff - I'm glad you've managed to get a diagnosis for the babies. Poor little tots, they've really been in the wars lately haven't they? I think they've used up their first decade of sicknesses in the first few months so hopefully you'll have it easy on the sickness front over the next few years. Those middle-ear infections sound nasty though.

    Clare - YAY on little Siobhan commando-crawling; and little Torin being not all that far off. He's a tough little man with just having gotten over the arm fracture; before you know it they'll be tearing about your house! Yikes! hehe

    Well Maddy is down for a nap (sure to wake up soon) and I have loads of wash on, washing up to do as well. The dinner is on (*worships her slow cooker*) and house is newly neat after looking like a bomb went off.

    John started his new job this morning, fortunately didn't have to be there til 9:30am as the left indicator went on the blink *L* yesterday evening and he had to drop it off at Holden to be fixed. Should be all under warranty as the car is only just over a year old. He met his boss last night (flew up from Sydney to meet John) and said he thought he was a nice bloke and they're very big on valuing their employees. The company invest time & money in furthering their education etc which is great.

    The only downside is that if he DOES stay on (gets through the 3-month probation) and we move to Sydney, they may send him on jobs around Australia for months at a time. They will fly me occasionally to see him; but I'm just a little nervous about living in Sydney (being a Brissie girl and all) away from my close family & friends and having John gallivanting around Australia for months at a time. I'm prepared to support him no matter what; this has the potential to be a dream job; but it's still nerve-wracking. Hope you realise I'm gonna be visiting you alot Meg! *LOL*
