    Hi guys, hope you are all well. I haven't been on in ages (started back work a couple of days a week). Anyway, I was wondering if any of you are having problems with separation anxiety. Its not when i go to work but when i put her down at night. she went from sleeping through (from 7 weeks) to crying until 3 or so in the morning. i know i've had a great run, i was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same thing.



    cheers

    Hello there my lovely ones and bubs!
    We are in southern italy at the moment, in a small villiage called Gizzeria, where my FIL was born. We are having a wonderful time here in the warmth.. Allegra even has a bit of a tan, which is surprising because I slap on the sunscreen like there is no tomorrow.
    Allegra is kind of sitting by herself now but always want to stand and move about! Johns cousin who is an orthopedic surgeon even said to me he was amazed at how strong her legs are... she even has a new name, Elvis because of her was her legs wiggle when she tries to stand.
    Food is going well - the range here is amazing. In the shops there is Turkey, Procsuitto and legumes all available for babies. I dont know about the first two but she loves the legume puree! Im going to bring some home!
    OK Ice cream is being served<!!!!! log in again soon
    Love T and A xxx

    Hi guys,

    We were almost off the first page, so thought I better post. I've popped in a bit but havent had a chance to post.

    All is well with us, Bonnie is doing really well. Has put on heaps of weight since her dramas with weight loss etc and it doing great. Her sleep is a million times better, and on a good night she feeds at 7pm, down by 8pm, then wakes for a feed at 5am, then back to sleep until 8am. I'm liking that!

    She seems to have forgotten that a baby is meant to roll, but is sitting up quite happily. No sign of teeth yet. Oh and we start solids in a couple of weeks, at 6 months. Our paed told us to wait until 6 months because of allergies.

    Teena - your holiday sounds divine, lucky thing!
    Allison - g'day to you! See you Thurs.

    Hope everyone is well,

    em and bonnie xx

    I started a reply yesterday but DH closed the window! Arg!

    Teena - lol on the prosciutto purre... kinda sounds gross... to be honest...

    Emma - yeah on the good sleeps! 8 - 5 is pretty much sleeping through.. cool! Zara wakes at 3 a.m. for a feed though I managed to get her back to sleep the other day without my boob... will have to try that more and more in the future as I want to night-wean her.

    Well... I also wrote this huge vent about my ILs. MIL and SIL are kicking up a huge stink about our nanny and it's really upsetting me. I don't want to go too much into it as it is just too frustrating to think about it and write it all again... they basically don't want us to bring her to Oz because they feel like they can't be themselves with her around. So basically they want us to be inconvenienced so they can have their picture perfect 1 hour with our children when they can be bothered to pop around.... yeah, right. They seem to forget that DH and I have a business to run. Grrrrr

    Hey Guys,

    I had my gallstone removed last Thursday, but im feeling really well now. Hospital stay wasnt that bad, but i am so happy to be home.

    Em - Bonnie is sooo gorgeous!

    Dh's cousin had her baby 2 weeks ago. She had some problems, and ended up having to have a c-section. Little Bryan was born with a virus, and was too long in the birth canal, and ended up with a deformed skull. He is ok now, but they have to wait until he is a bit older before they know if he has suffered any brain damage. Poor bubba!! He is beautiful though, tiny features.

    Ben stayed with the inlaws (dh's family) whilst i was hospital as Dh had to work. I wasnt happy at all about leaving him with them. Now that i have him home, his patterns are all over the place. Before i knew exactly what to do at exactly the right time. He would go to bed at 8pm, sleep straight away, wake at 9am, bottle, back to bed until 1pm. Then have another little nap at 4, and then awake until 8. At the inlaws, he didnt sleep until 10, wake up at 6am, up until 1pm, sleep for 30 mins, then up again until bedtime. He was always grumpy.. I hated not being in control. AGH! Well, its over now. HOPEFULLY i can get him back into a steady routine.

    Inlaws hmph, right Snowy? Snowy, do what you need to do. And dont let anybody else upset you and go against your decisions. They should support you in anyway, whether they agree to it or not is their own buisness.

    Ben is getting his third tooth though. Both bottom 2 are well and truely there, its so cute!

    I hope this post finds you all well.

    oh Allison - I meant to say that we have huge separation anxiety issues here... Zara can't be left alone much at all... and alone means without me... never alone alone... she always needs someone in the room... very clingy that girl.
    hope the sleeping is improving!

    Hello all!!
    Well we are home finally The trip went well and we had a good but sometimes exhausting time. Allegra was thankfully an angel on the way home. Travelling 1hr from Lamezia (southern Italy) to Rome, a 3 hr stop in Rome and then a 1 hr trip to Milan, a 1 hour stop in Milan and then 7 hours to Dubai where we had an 8 hour stopover before a 13 hour trip back to Sydney!! It sounds exhausting but the 8 hour stop in Dubai was good as they put us up at the Le Meridien Hotel so we were able to sleep and shower etc.
    Other than that - jet lag for Allegra has been a bit tiresome for me. The waking up every night has been a real drain but last night she was much better and she was heaps better today too - so fingers crossed the worst part is over.
    My luggage is still missing. Stupid Airone in Italy left them at the airport on the way to Rome and as my connecting flight was the same day they were not able to get the luggage there in time as they only fly twice a day to Rome grrrrrrrr and it sat there for 4 days before they got their act together and sent it to Rome where it had to be sent to Frankfurt where it apparently still is... do any of the Germans live near frankfurt? If I dont get it back i'll cryyyyyyyyyyyyy all the pretty new things I got for Allegra are in my suitcase.
    So we are back home and back into things. I am doing a Baby signing course on Tuesday which should be lots of fun. Allegra is clapping and sitting up so beautifully - she just makes my heart melt!
    Hope everyone is well - I need a few updates please!!!

    Teena- Glad to hear your holiday was successful. Bugger about your luggage. I hope it finds it's way safely back to you. Can't beleive Allegra is already 7 months. I remember getting the sms when she was born. Time fly's too quick. Athough it is such a cute stage (they all are).

    Hey Jen, nice to see you in hear. Of course your welcome We aren't as chatty as we use to be, but hopefully that will change

    Kayla is doing well. She had a UTI a few weeks back and we had to see a Kidney specialist to see if she had kidney reflux. The specialist said that they were not convinced she had a UTI to start with and goign by how she is doing and the examination they did (just feeling her tummy), that she doesn't have reflux. That was good news to hear.

    She doesn't have any teeth yet, and the little bugger won't open her mouth for solids either, LOL. Cheeky girl I try her every day, and have tried veges, fruit, custard, farex, mixed, not mixed, before feed, after feed, between feeds, you name it, but so far it's the "get a smile and put spoon quickly in mouth" approach. If I am not quick enough she clamps it shut really quickly. I only give her a few tspns so she gets use to the taste. She will open her mouth when she's ready I guess.

    She isn't sitting yet. Only every now and then for a few seconds but then topples over. She also doesn't take to rolling. Has done it 4 times, ages ago, but never since. She lays on her tummy and tries to push off with her feet to get a toy, so hope she doesn't work the crawling out first. Knowing my luck, she will........hehehe

    Nadine - good to hear that there is nothing wrong with Kayla.

    Hope everyone else is good.

    Hi Jen, Welcome! Of course its ok if you join us, New mummas are always welcome!!!!!!

    Teena, im happy to hear you had a great holiday. Bugger about Allegra and the jet-lag. I hope she settles back into a routine soon. It's so horrible when your luggage goes missing! I've been pretty lucky with mine, but my best friend had to wait 12 hours when we traveled to germany together. She had no clean clothes or anything like that with her, it was horrible for her. LUCKILY she got it back 12 hours later though. I hope the baby signing course went well. I'm starting with Ben soon. I would love to get some tips from you about starting if you dont mind sharing (maybe post handy ones in the signing thread you started).

    Nadine - How frustrating about Kayla not opening her mouth. Your right though, she will do it when she is ready im sure. Ben isnt sitting alone either. He will sit only when propped up with support, without he only lasts about 5 seconds before he topples over!

    Ben is just starting to lift his body off the floor, but only for a very short time. I dont know if im looking forward to him crawling or not!!!

    OH, and we are moving AGAIN. Its a good thing though. We found a place in a nicer area. Its in a 2 family house, brand new. The other family is really nice, they have 2 girls who are 5 and 8. the place is much bigger, nicer, newer, better, brighter. With a huge backyard (shared), but it is full of new play equiptment (slides, swings, sandpit)... In a wonderful neighbourhood... BUT is about 50 metres from the in-laws. I suppose that is a good thing though, we are getting along really well now. We move in 2 months. Cant wait!

    I hope this post finds you all well!!

    Hello girls!

    Teena - welcome back! Gee, I Hope your suitcase gets back to you. That's so annoying! I have lost my suitcase 3 times and once it was not returned. I was soooooooo upset. So fingers crossed (well, at least they know where it is, so that's a good sign)
    We are coming to Oz on 19 November and will stay until the end of January (currently booked for 28th I think). It would be great to catch up!

    Nadine, neither of my kids really open their mouth well.. with Wolf it was like threading a needle... and Zara has moments, where her tongue is down and I can get food in and other times there is no chance... give it time, practice and patience...

    Katie - I hear you on moving again... our move is getting closer but the biggest problem is finding a quote that doesn't make me have a heartattack... the cheapest company so far is "Aussie man & van" ... not trying to be patriotic, but if they are the cheapest... hey? lol ... got another guy coming round for a quote who was recommended to me by a friend and I know she paid 1/3 of what I've been quoted by other companies, so hopefully I will get a quote close to hers (though I think in her case it was a bit of a family-deal... I hope some name dropping helps...)

    Welcome to the Group, Jen! We have been a bit quiet recently... but hopefully that will pick up again!

    Well, Zara is sick at the moment, snotty and fever and coughing.. so I guess just a cold... but she is sooooooooo cranky. The other night she woke up 7 times! I was so tired the next day! I hope she'll be better soon. It's so heartbreaking to see her sick poor munchkina.

    Jen - forgive me for being so rude! Welcome to the Feb mummas... we are an excellent group

    Snowy - love to catch up. I still have not seen Nadine and we have been trying to get together for 10 months!!!! Although you will be in Manly yes? Thats practically next door for me! My email is [email protected] so email me your details and we can keep in touch and organise to meet up. I hope Zara feels better soon too - big kiss for her.

    Katie - moving is a nightmare but moving closer to the in-laws will be good in the fact that they will be there to lend a hand and as you said you are getting on with them better these days so thats a bonus.

    Hope everyone else is good. Cuddles from Allegra to all her buddies

    On the bubba front. She is being a very good girl (apart from this afternoon when she is being a little sook! but she IS teething and regadless what Robin Barker says, Teething makes them irritable!!!) but she is such a cutie... I need to update photos but my online things sucks. If anyone wants to see a recent photo email me and I will email you a photo.

    OK thats all from me, time for me to call an harass the arses from Airone and find out whats new with the luggage scenario. Ive already told them they will be getting a compensation claim from me...

    Loveeeeeeeeee

    Hi everyone, haven't been around for a long time now, when Harry and i went to visit my parents a couple of months ago we found out mum has fairly advanced cancer so it was all a huge shock and pretty devastating so we have been up there for a while, she is doing ok at the moment with chemo so just praying it works.

    Harrison is doing great, not sure what he weighs now but over 9kg he started on solids at about 4.5months and absolutely loves his food, scoffs it down. We have farex for breakfast with bottle, fruit at morning tea with bottle, bottle in the afternoon and then dinner is vege and bottle, he sleeps from 7pm to 6:30am which is awesome. He finally rolled the other day at 6months lazy sod hehe no teeth yet but think they are close he has the odd day where he is just plain grumpy and chews and drools. He doesn't sit up on his own yet but does assisted, loves the bath etc etc basically he is great

    Updated photos are in my link i think.

    Sorry no personals i haven't read all the posts yet but hope everyone and all the beautiful bubs are doing wonderfully.

    Cheers
    Sarah

    Hi there to all feb mums and bubs!

    Sarah so sorry to hear about your mum

    Well im glad to hear everyone is going along very well with bubs and welcome to jen.

    Aiden is about 10kg now and going along very very well. he's eating 3 meals a day and have 4 bottles also. he loves munching on bread and biscuits and rusks for his teeth. still none yet but you can see his bottom 2 through his gum. he rolls occasionally, sits for a while and then topples over and adores his big sister to bits.

    Zara has been completely toilet trained for about 4 months now. it makes life a lot easier having only 1 bum to change.

    Ive just come about "babylove ECOBOTS" they are eco friendly nappies and only cost an extra $2 a packet. they are just as good as the others.

    We are in the process of buying a couple of acres in town so zara can have her own zoo. so far on the list of her choice of animals are: goats, sheep, calves, alpacas, rabbits, another dog, another cat, more birds, horse and the list goes on. we will pretty much get all of these and maybe more i can't wait. lets hope aiden loves animals as much as zara. our house will take about 7 months to build so we should be in by next christmas.

    And we have finally decided to definately try for #3 within the next year or so. i would love to have one around mid 2008.

    Anybody else thinking about more?????

    Take care narelle

    Teena- Love to see a photo of your little Princess. I will email you

    Sarah- Great to see you back. So sorry about your mum, I do hope the chemo works for her and that she gets better!!! {{{HUGS}}}

    Narelle- Wow, how exciting, your own zoo, hehe Regarding TTC, we are going to wait till Kayla is atleast 18months old before we start trying for bub #2 (so I guess similar to you)

    Hello everyone!

    First of all - Sarah - I am so sorry to hear your mom has cancer. What kind is it? I hope the chemo works. That must have been such a shock to find out. Sending you a big hug and wishing you and your family lots of strength.

    Wow at Harrison weighing 9kg and Aiden weighing 10!! Wolf weighed 8.4kg at that age and I thought that was big, but Zara seems to be 7kg or so - she is so skinny! I was hoping she would chub up with some solids but nope - not a single fat roll on her legs. But then again she is just always moving and kicking and rolling around. She is so mobile already! I think once she can crawl she will just be in everything! She is so grabby and so fast at it too.

    Zara is doing a lot better health wise, still coughing though but no fever anymore, thankfully. Thanks for all the well wishes!

    Teena - I sent you an email - so we can plan our meeting in summer! Nadine? Maybe you can make it too? That would be so great! Yep, we will be in Manly. We gave our tenants notice on the 31st, so we have 3 weeks to get our floors resanded and re-oiled and the place cleaned and our stuff moved back in (currently in ILs' basemen). I am so excited about claiming our house back! I am soooooo looking fwd to going back to Sydney for the summer (and escape 3 months of winter here in Europe).

    Narelle - how cool that Zara is getting her own zoo! Wolf just loves animals - I would love to be able to do that for him... I guess we will have to come and visit . Some lady had this "handbag" dog with her the other day at the playground and Wolf just sat there for ages patting it.
    re ttc: we also want another one in 2008. But currently don't really want to think about it - first I want to lose that gut I still have.... I have started running again last week, so hopefully that will help shift the last 5kg!

    Development - Zara has been sitting up for exactly 1 month now (4 August). She can reach things from there and sit back up - it's really amazing. Wolf would try that and get stuck on the floor (must have been his big head and gut weighing him down). She has fruit/cereal for morning tea and veggies for dinner. She loves eating rice cakes but I don't give her bread anymore since it seems it makes her vomit... little gluten intolerance there at the moment... but then again she is barely 6 months old, so I'm not too worried ... will try again in a few weeks and hopefully she won't spew anymore after eating gluten-products. Zara has no teeth and I don't think she will get any for a while. I weaned Zara fully and she is fully on formula now.

    We had my mom, sister-in-law and Wolf's cousins over (boy 2 yrs older than Wolf and girl same age as Wolf) and that was a lot of fun. He adores his older cousin and played with him lots n lots. The girl-cousin is just trouble... Wolf and her are just fighting over everything all the time (mine - mine .. ) But she is very sweet with Zara ("baby!") and will give her cuddles and brings her the dummy. So sweet. Well, SIL is pregnant, so that bodes well
