    Goodmorning

    Tashie, you must be really unlucky.... it's everyone else that cops most of the spew from Brendan!! Although his reflux is pretty much gone now!! last month he was shocking bringing up most of his feeds, including solids. But this month the odd dribble... so I wouldn't even call it spew! woohoo!!
    lol at your substitute!! mmm chocolate I think some days I'd rather chocolate!!
    I'm down to 78kg too, I want to get down to 70.... I was 65 but a little underweight so 70 would be nice

    Brendan and I are off to Playgroup this morning, well when he wakes! He slept through last night, I think his cold is going, and woke at 7:30am had a feed and went back to sleep at 8!!



    Have a great day ladies

    Sally, I am so glad that you are writing more often now. It is really great hearing what you are Brendan have been up to. I once did a debate on what was better chocolate or sex. From a girls point of view, there is definitely more pros to cons for chocolate. LOL! Its great that Brendan's reflux is clearing up. A friend had really bad reflux her whole life until she had an operation at 20. That would not be fun.
    Kristy - How is our birthday girl? Did she get spoilt and eat all the yummy foods you made?

    TASH _ I e-mailed you some pics of my bunnies. They really aren't that much hard work. You just need to set them up. The thing I like about bunnies is you play with them, cuddle them, & then they go back into their hutch. Ours hop around the garden at times but they can be VERY hard to catch, except our buck, he is seriously a dog in a rabbits body. He even bangs on the door so Claudia will go & slide it open for him & he comes inside! UMMAH! I now have a rabbit run though that I put them in & onto the grass & they have a ball in there. I think I like putting them away in hutches so I can open the door for the girls & they go outside & play without me worrying. Jessica was bitten by our dog when she was 11 months old, so I like the bunnies as they are safer. However, they can scratch. But it's up to you. Personally, I think Tobi is too young for a pet but it's completely up to you. It's better than buying him a kitten or a puppy IMHO. Jessica was 2 when she got her first bunny, but I'm a real sucker for them. I always have one on my lap every night for snuggles when the kids are in bed. We let Claudia eat chocolate too. But not loads of it. It's very hard when she can see Jessica with a freddo frog to deny her of one as well. She actually really loves m&m's & my MIL has a dispenser & Claudia stands at the table & points to it saying 'some'. I usually pack all the chocolates away from Easter & just bring them out very slowly.

    SAL _ It's sooooooo great to have you online all the time! I agree! WTG on Brendan scoring $80 for his birthday! How awesome! Are you going to use his bank account money for things like school, etc... or are you just putting it away for when he turns 18 or wants a car? My friends all got cheques for their 18th, like in the vicinity of $10K & I never got anything, not even $100 towards my first car & I want my children to have big 18th cheques so I am putting their $$ away for that. Oh please don't make me jealous about you being 65kg, I don't want to hear that crap! LOL. You lucky thing!

    ME _ Last night was the 4th night that Claudia hasn't woken up half an hour after going to bed. It's been excellent! I had to go look after my niece & nephew for a little while today. Far out, 4 kids is tough! My niece just had her tonsils out yesterday & my nephew has a big snot nose, so it was just charming. My sister had to go get her AB's & paintstop & everything because the hospy didn't have a pharmacy. Definitely sealed the deal of only 2 kids for me! LOL. Oh & also, nearly got Claudia to sleep on cows milk last night. She drank 150mL & was just about asleep when she realised it wasn't a booby in her mouth & put on a show until I gave it to her! Each night we get a step closer!

    Love Jayne

    Hi, just in quickly, as have to get notes ready for tomorrow......

    Jayne, WTG on Claudia nearly forgetting boobie!

    Tash, Monkey is sick too - snotty, cough, and 1 slightly inflamed ear, GP wants to see us again Mon hoping to avoid a/b's. Maybe they both got the same thing at Lollipops?? (Monkey's kinda started Sunday with snotty nose then the throat and ear have come since Wed...) Hope Tobi is better real soon.

    Kristy, hope Erin's B'day was fantastic - my mum was going to get Monkey table and chairs for Christmas, but we don't really have the space - not sure what I'm gonna do this year when she actually starts to want that sort of thing!!

    Ryn, hope you get those migraines sorted girl! Sounds wonderful that Liebs is starting to become more independent - Monkey is too to some degree.

    Not sure if I've mentioned before but when I was pg I had quite bad pubic symphasis separation/dysfunction and its back, dammit! Luckily, the women's health physios at work have agreed to see me and had my first app't today - looks like its gonna be slow recovery and I'm quite sore tonight....

    But in better news, I dropped Monkey at the out-laws yest and went bra shopping!!! Sorry to say though that I needed to buy boring bras that could be worn under white work shirts, so the sexy stuff will have to wait....

    Gotta run, would love to stay to chat.... Oh, other big news - we are selling our house! The rate rises are killing us and we have no quality of life left... As it is our 3 yr plan to leave Sydney anyway, we figure we can rent, save money and be happier.... hopefully.... but a stressful time ahead sorting it all out!

    Have a lovely wkend all.

    KYM _ WOW with selling your house! That's massive news. I have been scaring Alan & sending him links to 3 storey mansions & saying I'm going to view them! LOL. That sounds great & you sound really happy about the move, so that's even better! How is that Cheeky Monkey?

    Kym - There is heaps of rentals near me at the moment. Not that you live too far away now. I hope you find something that isn't too far away from your child care and work. Has the real estate suggested that you do anything to the house before you move? How is Monkey today? If she is still sick will you go to work this week? How did your appointment go? Are you feeling any better? Do they know why it has come back?

    Jayne - I think you might be right about Tobi being still a little too young for a pet. I am still going to think about it and do my research, but am not going to rush into it like I was initially. Trouble is with DH going away so much, Tobi and I tend to pack up and go away too, and it is too much to ask the neighbours to look after them for extended periods...Glad to hear that you are having some success with Claudia on cows milk. It took me about 6weeks to get Tobi weaned. Once your boobies stop producing as much milk, they soon learn that they get more from a bottle than from you. But that doesn't take attachment into consideration. Hope Claudia is still sleeping soundly.

    Ryn - How is your head sweets? Are you on medication for it? I used to get really nasty migraines when I worked and really improved when I stopped work. I think they were stress related. Chocolate and Cheese burgers always make me feel better when I have a migraine.

    Sally - I like the idea of a bank account for the bubs too. My in laws always give Tobi money instead of pressies, so we put that away and we donate $1 a day to his account too.

    US - Looks like I am going to be a carer for a belly belly friend who is thinking about going back to work. Our boys play together so well and we already do a little bit of swapping, but I may look after him a few days a week if she finds a job. It'll only be for six months, as we will probably be moving at the end of the year again and they are trying for number two. I am looking forward to it, should be good for Tobi too and a little extra cash doesn't hurt either.

    Tobi is still sick and has now spread his sickness around. What is with men and being sick. Tobi is handling it so much better than DH. And now I have it too.

    My little nephew isn't going too well. His Mum isn't producing milk and they left it too long before they started giving him supplements, so now he is getting feed through a tube and doesn't look like they will be out of hospital for a few more days.

    Now that all our bubs have hit 12months, can we do another comparison. My DH keeps asking how he is going in his development and I have no idea.
    Height- 73cm (I think)
    Weight - 9.7kg
    Walking - Only around furniture, he is a long way off (which I am happy about)
    Words - Mum, Dad, Duck, Hello, Yeah and lots of grunting
    Teeth - Two bottom ones
    (Can you think of anything else?) Tobi has gone down a few percentile lines for height and weight. Should I be worried? Also I have noticed he ****s his right leg up the air a bit, when he is sitting and lying down, do you think that could mean something?

    Goodmorning

    Jayne, I'm glad Claudia has been sleeping well for you

    Tashie, :hugs: hope your lil man and DH feel better soon. I'm sorry to hear about your nephew, how old is he?

    Kym, gotta love the shopping without the lil one!!

    Brendan's stats from our last CHN:

    weight: 8980
    height: 73cms
    head circumference: 46cms
    teeth: 6, 2 bottom and 4 top.
    words: just babble... mumumumum, dadadadad, bubububub and nananan
    walking: only a few steps around furniture... he would still rather get down and crawl along to the next destination.

    Brendan is finally over his cold... it's been a horrible week continuously getting up during the night, thank fully he slept through till 6 am... which is still not normal, but better

    Hi all.

    Tash:
    I will answer your questions in order, but should probably just pick up the phone!!! We are going to look for rentals kinda near here, maybe a bit east, like Putney/Meadowbank. We both need to be near Victoria Rd as it is both of our best links to work and you're right, we don't want to change day care now, so has to be close to there too....

    Will be getting r. estate people in soon, but we already know we need to do gutters and fix rotting back deck! Not sure where we will get money??? But it will be great not to have the upkeep of a place for a while too... And yes, Jayne, I am excited about moving - I see it as one step closer to getting out of Sydney forever!!! (that is our 3-5 yr plan, but I'm always skeptical, as DH is Sydney born and bred - it'll be hard to actually get him away)

    We are all still sick - this is a nasty virus. DH has taken Monkey to Dr now, as he needs to go now too. I am probably the best of the 3 of us. Hope you, Tobi and DH are on the mend soon too.

    And with my pelvis, was still sore Sat, but somewhat better by today. Physio said it has come back, as I have a chronic mal-alignment problem which I should have got fixed when I was pg! Typical physio's though self-diagnosing, I just took the shortcut when pg and borrowed a friends belt and did some exercises instead of seeing someone who actually specialises in this!!!

    And wow, Tash, about maybe looking after Tobi's mate on a more formal/regular basis - that'll be both fun and very tiring I'm sure!!

    I keep forgetting that you might be moving.... I will be very sad when you do I used to have lots of school friends at primary school who were army kids and used to lose friends all the time....

    Monkey's stats are:

    W 9.5kg
    H 73cm
    HC no idea, sorry
    Teeth - STILL NONE!

    Words - mama, dada, bubba, tada (teddy), tata (Tilly the dog), uh-oh (whenever something hits the ground, whether an accident or on purpose!), up (to be picked up) and "ta". I think the other day she may have tried to say wawa when she wanted her water, but its a bit inconsistent.

    Walking - standing on own and will take 1-2 steps to fall into me. but mainly cruising round walls, furniture etc... She still crawls preferentially if theres a long distance or if she's in a hurry, eg to escape me!

    Glad Brendan is better, hope the rest of us follow soon...

    Hi everyone

    Urgh... we have been virus central here over the last few weeks... crazy stuff.
    No time right now for personals, but I will pop in later and read up more and do some personals.

    Harrison is going well... his tooth he was getting decided to go back down... so Monkey isn't the only tooth-less bubba here... he has 2 teeth at the bottom that are so close to breaking through, yet they don't!
    Ever since he turned 1, he has developed an attitude. If you look at him for too long, he will grunt... if you call him whilst he is doing something he likes, he will grunt... he has thrown tantys too which is so strange as he has always been so well behaved and quiet... oh well, he is still gorgeous as anything!

    Goodmorning

    Kristy, glad Erin had a good day.

    Lisa, I'm with you on the attitude! I was started to think maybe the "terrible twos" had already started!

    Kym, hope you are all feeling better soon.

    So, how do I stop Brendan from eating the dog food without moving the dog food? I've trierd distractions and also just moving it around the place.... but he always finds it. He has such a short attention span. I've given him a rusk for the moment, which seems to be keeping him occupied. We are off into town this morning for some shopping. Brendan has run out of banana's for morning tea.

    take care

    PMSL...Sally...that is so funny about Brendan eating dog food. I don't know what you can do about it. Other than say no, or completely block him off from that area. When I say no to Tobi now he cries most of the time, but he still does it again tomorrow!!! I think that until they get a little more understanding, there is not too much you can do. They say to ignore bad behaviour and congratulate on the good. But I am sure you can't ignore him eating dog food. My nephew was born last week. Things are looking a little better and he might be out of hospital in a few days.
    Lisa - PMSL about Harrison grunting. Tobi does that too. I have a little devil in my sweet boy that comes out ever now and then. I am so over the throwing of the food and drink bottle already. I know we all have to go through the terrible twos and there is a light at the end of the tunnel...somewhere.
    Kristy - 1st Trimester is always difficult and unless you have been pregnant, you don't understand what it is like, so I hope that you have lots of people around you that has been through it before, as it can be hard at times when all you want to do is sleep. I hope that you have a great second trimester.
    Us - I am sick now. Fun. We lost one of Tobi's favourite toys out walking yesterday. I realised when we got home and I really should have gone straight out and tried to find him but I couldn't be bothered, so fingers cross he is still there when we go out walking today. That is two toys in two weeks we have lost out of three favourites!!

    SAL - So glad to hear that you & your man have sorted things out & WTG on looking for a place together! That's great news! How are things with you & Brendan? Oh wow with the dog food eating, that's pretty icky. I have no suggestions other than just putting the dog food down at the dogs meal times? Claudia had a whale of a time in my parents dogs water bowl on the weekend. Gross me out!

    TASHIE _ It's up to you about the pet, but if you're planning on moving anyway, why not just get him a pet when you are all shifted, that way you are settled & Tobes is older? Oh wow you are brave helping out your friend. It'll be fun for Tobi to have a playmate, just remember double the fun & double the trouble! I had my gf's little girl for 2 weeks fulltime & then a couple of nights every week for the following couple of months when Jessica was 12 months old. it was because her older girl was really sick in hospital & she had nobody to have her. It was fun but sooooooo tiring at the same time! At least your little visitor will be going home at night.

    KRISTY _ Oh wow, just think that next year at Erin's 2nd birthday you will have a bub that is 8-12 weeks old! Now that is scary! Did she get lots of nice presents? Get over the birthday & everything & then let me know when you want a playdate.

    LISA _ I hear you with the tantrums. I have those as well. Claudia puts herself on the floor & throws anything that is in the vicinity of her when she is having a meltdown. I think it's funny & just walk away from her. My goodness me, when is Harrison going to show you some TEETH! I think he is going to end up getting them in pairs! I hope you guys are all on the mend, it's been one thing after another with you guys!

    KYM _ What did the Dr say about Monkey & DH? I hope they are better very soon.

    ME _ Had a couple of horrendus nights with both kids. Saturday night I didn't get to bed until 1:30 pm. Between Jess & Claudy, they played tag team with Mummy & Claudia woke every 90 mins on the dot, most of the time though, I didn't have to pick her up, just a little pat. I actually think she was crying in her sleep because she didn't open her eyes & stand up like she normally would. Jessica is at thriving 3's atm & Claudia is asleep so I'm just loving the 'quiet time'. Claudia has learned to say my sisters name so she is going on & on with 'Nat, Nat, Nat, Nat'. Very cute. She took 240mL of cows milk last nigth & then fell asleep on the lounge. Jessica was in awe because she was on her tummy with her legs tucked up & she kept on going over to her & saying 'my sister is a koala bear'. Gorgeous.

    Hope you are all having wonderful Tuesdays!

    Love Jayne

    Hi Girls,

    JAYNE - Erin must be going out in sympathy with your girls, as she was relly restless last night. I can see a tooth poking through at the bottom so think that may be the culprit. That will be tooth number 10!! Really look forwrad to catching up and meeting your gorgeous girls. Been meaning to ask you what does your DH do in China? My FIL was working up there on the oilrigs.
    TASH - That is Erin's favourite trick throwing things out of the pram. In the last 3 weeks we have lost 3 dummies, a new pumpkin patch hat and a toy. Have got one of those chains for the dummys now just for our walks. Erin walked across the room for the first time yesterday before it had only been 2 or 3 steps. Will have to dig out her measurments form the Purple book and get back to you.
    LISA - Poor love with vurus central. Hope you are all on the mend really soon.Yay for the teeth!!
    SAL - Erin did the same thing at my sisters house with the dog food, must be a kid thing!!Bannanas are one of Erin's favourites as well. She also loves ice blocks just started making her fruit ones and she devours them.
    KYM - Good on you fro making the decision about the house. Sometimes we need to take a step back and look at what is really important, and what quality of life we have. Hope you get a great price for your house.How did the physio go ?


    Well nothing much more to report from us, we have Erin's christening in a couple of weeks so that shoudl be nice. Just booked in to get my car converted to gas. Because of the Govt Rebate it will only cost $250.00. It will be duel fuel usage so you can use both gas and petrol. Yesterday when I looked gas was 65 cents compared to $1.37 for petrol so I think it willo definently help us save some dollars

    KRISTY _ DH is a Fabrication Supervisor. He oversees the welding & boilermaking of steel construction. He has 60 non-english speaking Chinese men to supervise atm. Thank goodness DH is learning some Chinese with the help of a translator & his driver. I hope that tooth is coming through really soon. OMG with 10 teeth! That's insane! She is really quick! Is she walking now? Yes, I"m dying to catch up, you can come to our toy factory if you'd like?

    We have been at the hospital this afternoon, so I have Claudia's weight & length. LOL. She fell coming up the step from our sunken loungeroom to our kitchen & has busted the skin between the nose & top lip. It's about 2cm long & very puffy. I took her to the hospital because it was so puffy the skin couldn't close over to form a scab. They were going to stitch it but decided to use the 'tissue adhesive' basically super glue, to minimise the scarring. Very scary stuff. My heart is still racing. Even Jessica panicked. It was horrible. She was so adorable holding the tissues over her sisters face while I drove to the hospital. Bless her heart.

    Ok, here are some stats:

    Weight: 10.6kg
    Height: 76cm
    Words: Mum-Mum, Dad-Dad, Jess-Jess, Bath Time, Ta, Nat, Nanna, Mama, Uh oh m-taz (for uh oh razzamatazz), Bella (one of the rabbits), Ella (Jessica's friend), Yesh (Yes), Nut (No) Plus she still does all the babbling sounds
    Walking: Yep, almost running & can now turn around in circles on command!She walked the week before she was 11 months (Have to check bub book for actual date)
    Teeth: 8 in total - 4 bottom & 4 top
    Other cool things: Calls out bath time after her dinner & goes into the bathroom, goes into Jess' room & gets her headbands & puts them around her neck like necklaces, blows kisses, goes & looks in the 4 bunny hutches until she finds bella then stands & points saying 'Bella', tries with all her might to sing along to the bob the builder theme song, looks through the newspaper hole in the letter box & calling 'jess jess' so they can spy on each other - ok, the list is endless!

    Goodmorning

    Jayne, Hope Claudia is ok. Sounds like she is doing really well! 10.6kg, shes huge! lol. Brendan and I are both really well. Brendan is starting to eat more solids which is great... so i'm going to cut one milk meal out and replace it with more solids. *fingers crossed*

    Tashie, Glad to hear things are looking up for your nephew.

    Kristy, Brendan LOVES ice.

    Well here an update on the dog food.... not only is he racing over to eat it (he just sucks on it, but still gross) but he is sharing... with the dog. Yesterday I caught him with a rusk offering it to the dog, the dog grabbed hold of it and then Brendan pulled it back and started chewing it again. Eeeew! I mean it's great that he's sharing, but with the dog?? PMSL!

    We went out for tea last night, we just had a pub meal, but it was still going out! Brendan was very well behaved and I had my favourite... surf n turf! mmm mmmm.

    Take care ladies

    Hi girlies!

    Eugh, work. 3 weeks back and FINALLY computer access: I had to chase everything myself. So much for my line manager doing ANYTHING. Not best pleased.

    Migraine: on co-codamol, an addictive opiate drug. Nice. I have no side-effects, Liebling has them all. He gets all excited and happy, but dizzy and woozy too after a feed. He also can't drive. I'm not taking them today because I feel a bit better, that and I don't like DS taking ages to go to sleep at night. May take some before playgroup and before bed actually. But just 4, not the usual 8. Eye test on Friday to see if it's my eyesight.

    Now I know why we don't have pets... sharing with the dog? Mmmm. So pleased that DS can't do that!

    Stats on DS:
    Weight: about 20lb - that's just under 9kg
    Height: around 76cm, maybe 77cm
    Words: other than Liebling-language, he has Mumma, Dadda, Ja, No, Hey, Bye, Hug and Duck. He has also said (in context) gorgeous, hot, hiding, dog, love you, thank you. But he doesn't say those enough for me to say they're his words. He has a Liebling word for drink (ningy), end of bath (owap), time to leave the house (oo-yup) and a few other things, but those are the ones I can recognise easily!
    Walking: Yup. He can walk confidently around the sitting room, navigating boxes and tables with ease. His only problem is the small step from the sitting room to the hall; he's a bit wobbley on that. He can go up it, but not down it. It's only about an inch high.
    Teeth: at one year, 7 incisors. Right now he has 7 incisors, his top two first molars are halfway out, his bottom left first molar has started to break, his bottom right first molar is lurking, as is his final incisor. (We've not had much sleep and he's super-clingy atm for some reason!)
    Other cool things: He goes for hugs with people he knows happily (asks for hugs), he can clap along when other children start to clap, rather than him just randomly doing it, he waves bye-bye and night-night, he can play with cars (driving them around and making them crash into each other), he loves hitting things with sticks and tools, if I wanted to stop feeding he's ready to but will take if offered so I am making him keep with two feeds a day, he is starting to use a fork/spoon to self-feed, he reads paper books without tearing, he draws, he can use a shape-sorter really well now (no help from parents!), starting to get the hang of baby jigsaws, carries toys/books to an adult for a play, ah, he's so cool I can't fit it all in here! He's fab.

    Tashie, DS was tube-fed in hospital because as soon as I left I didn't want him on formula so we didn't give him much. He has dropped from 50th centile to 9th over the year, but he's so active the HV (MCN) is OK with this. I don't htink he needed tube-feeding now as he's ended up on that centile anyway, he was never destined to be a chubba bubba!

    Jayne, poor Claudia. DS cut his lip yesterday, nowhere near as bad, but I just told him "just a split lip, you're fine mate, want a toy car?" and he was fine after that. I am refusing to take him to hospital unless he's going to die now because I don't want them to think me a bad mother - he's been in once due to a burn and again because he was finding it hard to breathe and I didn't call them for over half an hour then (on the advice of my mother, stupid woman) so want to be a good mum whose baby isn't in and out of A&E LOL, as if that's a good parent but I don't want to be suspected of anything IYKWIM.

    Hugs to all, have to go change a nappy before playgroup I think!

    Don't you hate it how you type up a reply and then you lose it, now I don't remember what I was saying...

    Jayne - I hope Claudia is all good again now and she is still eating. Sounds like Jessica is a very sweet girl. You are lucky to have two gorgeous girls.

    Ryn - I wouldn't worry about what other people think about you taking Liebs to the doctor or hospital. Go with your gut feeling. I am sure that there is a lot of accident prone babies out there and if you are concerned for his health, then that is a good thing, not a bad thing. I hope the eye test went well.

    Sally - I'd see the dog food thing as a building block for his immune system. And they do say that dogs mouths are cleaner than ours. And hey, sharing is awesome, good on him. I am sure all our kids get into or will get into things that are not exactly desirable, when we are or aren't looking. I know I ate a snail when I was little, fresh out of the garden and on the night of Tobi's birthday he ate half a cigarette. It was my bro in-laws. I was in the kitchen and Tobi must have seen bro go and get something out of his girlfriend's bag and go outside, so Tobi followed their lend, grabbed the bag, went through it and started munching on a cig. I was in the kitchen and everything went quiet so I knew something was going on. I came into the lounge room to find Tobi had vomited everywhere. Poor little guy and on his birthday too. I hope he remembers that when he is 15 and gets offered a cig. ... So glad to hear that you are getting out and about. It is so important to have some 'us' time. Now that Tobi is in such a good night routine, I am really missing catching up with friends at night. When we lived in Brisbane we used to do dinner a couple nights a week, now that we are in Sydney, all of our friends have babies and dinner just doesn't work. So if you can get out have dinner than that's awesome.

    Kristy - Hope the teething is getting better and you have a better night sleep tonight. I was talking to my Aunty that lives not far from our place about losing toys out of the pram and she said that she saw a duck on the side of the road the other day and thought it looked like Tobi's. It was! Poor duck not there now.

    Lisa & Kym - How are you all feeling now? Being sick sucks. I have noticed now that we have Tobi, DH and I get sick more often too. We are slowly getting better. It really hit DH the worst, well it seemed to anyway. You never know with men and whether they are just whinging. How long does it take for ear infections to heal? Tobi has swimming tomorrow and I don't know whether to go or not. I wouldn't put his head under the water regardless. What do you think? He has finished his course of antibiotics.

    Michelle - I know that you are back at work. But don't forget about us!

    My little nephew is home from hospital, but I am really worried about my bro's girlfriend. She really isn't coping and my bro is not helping the situation with working from home and wanting her to lose weight asap.

    I have offered for some friends to move in for two months while Nathan is away. They are pregnant, so saving some money will be good for them and great for us too to have some extra cash, plus having some company will be good. I do this every time Nathan is away and I always end up cranky by the end of it, but only for two months, it can't be that bad, surely!

    Hope everyone has good weekends
