    Awww Sarah I don't think I have any atm But I am hoping for you!! Have you made any plans to consult anyone in the near future?
    And what a load of crap!! That is soooo illeagal for them to say they don't give refunds when the product didn'tdo what it was supposed to! That is just a scam!

    Belinda, oooeeerr... norty norty!! You'll be spewing if you fall accidently and it's another boy So have you decided if you are going to try for a girl?

    Dee... how nice to get some great bargans... for yourself!! That's always a bonus! Not often I buy for myself unless it's on super special!!

    Soooo Fi, you taking risks too!? LOL @ Jenna!! Too funny.

    Anyway feeling a tad Blugh atm... it'll only get worse as it gets hotter. Oh well. Violet just wouldn't go to sleep last night... little monster... oh well. she did eventually get to sleep.

    Yeah I'm thinking of making an appointment with my GP to get the wheels in motion to go to the specialist. Hopefully we can do the same as last time I'm getting a Maybe Baby & also looking at Lunar Fertility, so trying a few different things.....

    Going back to sort out this thing this morning, I'm all fired up for an argument

    Sarah - You can have mine too although I`m not sure how good it is now after having a D & C. I really hope it`s not too much longer before your up the duff and I agree doing another Sarah would be wonderful. My Mum was told the same thing about the Hug A BUb she brought from BG, no refund, My Dad said the same as you that`s illegal, luckily it was okay but I`ve hardly used it as Adrian is just too heavy.

    Tanya - I`m the same very rarely buy anything for myself, it`s all something for the 4 boys or Mark. Hope your m/s doesn`t give you too much trouble today.

    Belinda - I thought Bill said 3 was enough, good on you if your wanting a 4th, will you be trying for a pink one?

    Anyone want two children who refuse to have a sleep, I have on my hands a 6 month old who thinks one sleep is enough for him and a 21 month old who thinks he doesn`t need to sleep at night, luckily with Matthew Mummy and Daddy still sleep as he doesn`t cry just blows raspberries and talks to himself LOL, he was still awake at 10pm, awake again at 1.45am, 4am, 7am I have no idea when he went to sleep and Adrian got me up 4 times last night for a big feed each time so I`m feeling rather tired.

    Just got back from Adrian`s 6 monthly check up, he`s 9.7kg and 72cms long, he`s the same length as Matthew but is 330gms heavier then Matthew at the same age, I knew he was fatter, Matthew never had rolls of fat on him even for a big boy.

    Drama drama drama over here LOL! I had quite an argument with the owner of the Babies Galore here with him telling me that my bed isn't "normal". I called the Dept of Fair Trading, answered a few questions to be told I'm entitled to a refund & to contact them again, tell them Fair Trading says I am entitled & if they still refuse to put in an official complaint. Long story short, I've put in an official complaint. The staff there (owner & another man) were quite rude about it all, so I will enjoy going back in to get my refund Silly them though, I have bought all of my baby stuff there (around about $4000) and I won't be going to them ever again.

    Sorry to hear the boys are giving you grief Dee, hopefully tonight will be better.

    Looks as though I'm off to find a toddler bed now *sigh* I'll use my $100 I get back to buy one from Ikea I think. Stupid bed I have isn't going to work with any rails as they all look to have the same mechanism as the one we bought.......

    Sarah, what sort of rail was it? The one we have on Jack's bed just slides straight under the matress so I would think it would fit on most beds. BTW, when we were TTC Jack (it took 9 months which isn't a long time in the scheme of things but seemed like it at the time), I kept telling myself that nature was just waiting for the right egg to be released to create the most wonderful child. I swear it worked, Jack is the best little boy I could imagine!! Perhaps that's why it's taking you a while - I'm sure Zander was worth the long wait!!

    Our first day with DH back at work is going well so far, but I'd better go now and make some calls.

    I'm still deciding about no 3 too, but I would want Tom to be at least 6 months first!

    Well glad you will get the refund Sarah and hope its not a fight to get it

    LOL Tanya, and no probs here about having any more kids for now, was relieved i have to say, could picture my life with a 17mth and 9mth gap and have to say it was scary!!

    Dee: Bill has no idea i am thinking about it lol, and thats all i am doing really, just thinking, as for the girl thing i am researching a lot to see whats out there in the low tech swaying stuff, finding a mountain of info that is helpful so will just research and see how it goes for the next 5-6mths then decide, i have been testing my ph levels though and if the theory is true then i know why i have all boys so far

    I am also looking into becoming a foster parent but i think i would feel better doing that when my kids are a little older

    Melanie: Hope the rest of the day goes well minus DH

    I went on a cleaning frenzy this morning and set up a bed in Masons room, the cot is still in there as well, so will just see what he thinks, not going to pressure him, he has till the end of the month to make the change over, so no rush, no bed rails for him though lol, going to put a mattress on the floor to catch him for now

    Melanie, you sound like a girl after my own heart I absolutely agree that there is another little munchkin out there waiting for us to be ready for him (or her, but I have a strong feeling it'll be a boy!). I've overcome some of the anxieties related to Zander's birth & lots of other things have fallen into place over the last few weeks - new room for Zander, bigger car etc. so I feel like this bub is just around the corner. S/he has just been waiting for the right time to come & join our family.

    The rail we got is *supposed* to just slip under the matress, but because they all fold down there's a mechanism that sticks out a bit & for some reason it just won't sit properly on the bed. If you have a look at the photos of his new room, the problem is that the side bits of the bed are too high for it to work. Looks like we'll be getting a $100 toddler bed from Ikea instead now, so my old bed will be packed away for a while longer.

    Belinda good idea on the mattress on the floor rather than rails Yay at the cleaning frenzy, sounds like you've done heaps.

    OMG where is everyone???? It's not like me to be one of the most frequent posters lately LOL!

    Not much happening around here, still waiting for the blinds to come in & also to hear from Fair Trading. I'm thinking now of just putting the cot mattress next to the big bed & see how we go. Not like we're going to need it for at least a year from now (we use a hammock when bub is small).

    Zander has a nice big scratch down the inside of his bicep, looks sooo sore. He tripped over on Tuesday night at mum's place & got the corner of her new nesting box that was on the floor. She had just bought it that afternoon & had yet to put it in the aviary. Poor little guy cries & says "ow ow ow ow" when I put the Dettol cream on it after his bath.

    BB meetup today in a park with predicted thunderstorms LOL! Going to be fun!

    Ouchies! Poor Zander!
    Can't believe all the hassles you've had with the railing, Sarah. How frustrating! Maybe the mattress on the floor is a good way to go? That's how Paige sleeps atm because she started climbing out of the cot.
    I continue to piff baby dust your way matey....

    Belinda - good job with cleaning up Mason's room. Gabby's already needs a good clean and I only did it not so long ago! She's also got the single bed in her room. Thankfully it's a big room so it fits just nicely with plenty of room for the cot. I've mainly moved the single bed in there so I can start organising Little Bee's room but the familiarity with it can't hurt. I wonder if we'll have trouble getting a railing for it also? Neil will probably devise something.... Mr. Fix-it!

    Dee - sounds like you're having a hall of a time, matey. Hope the boys have relented and decided to start sleeping more. Gawd it's tough enough with 1 refusing to sleep let-alone 2! Sounds like Adrian is one healthy bubba. You don't have little children, do you?

    Tanya - hope you're feeling ok and the m/s monster hasn't gotten to you too badly.

    As Fi mentioned, Gab and I went back to Geelong over the weekend for various things but mainly to get measured up for material for my sister's wedding Jan next year (yes! She's very organised but has to be cos one of our sister's is off to England for 8 months). I am hoping to lose a heap of weight before the wedding but I figure too much material is better than not enough
    We had a massive day on the Friday. We visited Fi and Jenna and Hamish (and I got to have HUGE cuddles with widdle Hamish - was so nice to cuddle a bubba to sleep!). Gabrielle behaved atrociously and tried to beat Jenna up with her baby-doll! SO not impressed!! Jenna was so lovely about it tho. It just showed me how Gabby is lacking in socialisation atm. Norty little scamp!
    Bec and Eliza popped in too so it was GREAT to catch up with them. Eliza looked very pretty in her gorgeous dress next to my feral child with the skinned knee We had some lovely sponge cake that Fi made (where she found the time, I dunno!) and Jenna showed us some letters of the alphabet. Very clever! Gabby saw the cow and said "moo" does that count?? PMSL She was just happy to copy Jenna and point while Jenna told us the letter and the picture.
    We then went to see my friend Larissa to give her DD her first birthday present. We had party food and everything! Gabby was most impressed. She was a bit feral there to but, thankfully, didn't try to beat anyone up!
    We headed over to see Tash and Paige (yes... I know... way too much for one day!). Gab and Paige didn't skip a beat and played together like they always have. They just seem to gel (guess it's all the time they spent together).
    We were knackered by the time we got back to Mum's. We had a tupperware party to go to the next day so even more socialisation for Miss Gab. She spent a lot of time outside which was good. She, once again, went bananas at another child (this time one older than her) because she wanted what she had. Urrgh! Please tell me this is just a phase?? I don't want her to be the child that all other children run away from! LOL
    My sister took her to church on Sunday (thought it would be nice for my sis since she's off to England soon). Apparently Gabby was very well behaved and cute. She danced and sang and clapped to the music. Of course she went bananas when she got back to Mum's because my younger sister's had to go and she wanted to go with them. Gab stood at the door watching them go (screaming, mind you) and started bashing her head on the door. Deeeeelightful!
    She's been better since we've been home. Still defiant but not as over-stimulated. Poor chook! We've got playgroup this morning so we'll see how she goes. I'm praying she doesn't try to beat a baby up this time.

    Wow, it is quiet in here.

    Sarah, I see what you mean about the bed rail. I hope you don't have any more hassles with the refund. Jack will probably use his until he's 10, I'll be too scared to remove it LOL!

    Deb, what a huge day. Glad to hear Gabby was good mostly. I think the hitting thing is fairly normal. Jack has made another kids cry at story time on a couple of occassions, but I think he's just trying to hug the child and is a bit too rough. I feel a bit bad telling him off as I think he means well.

    Hi to everyone else, I've been so busy this week I've lost track a bit. I have had such a busy week trying to catch up after Christmas and our holiday and I've had appts for various things every day this week. And of course Jack's party is Sunday and it's my first birthday party (as hostess) so it's all a bit new to me. I've actually only been to one 2nd birthday party before and it was at a play centre so I'm not too sure what people do at home. I'm hoping the pool, sand pit, swings and toys will keep the kids occupied enough. I can't believe my little boy is going to be two on Monday. Where has the time gone?

    Do you think my life will be easier on Monday once I don't have two under two anymore? LOL

    Here I was panicking thinking there be opages for me to catch up on again and there`s not YAY

    Deb - Your right I don`t have little children but I wish I did, my body is breaking because of these big boofas (I`m serious here), my body is only meant to have average size babies so why do I have big bubs. Wow I`m tired just reading what you`ve been up to, sounds like you had a great day with catching up with everyone LOL @ Gabby beating up everyone, Matthew has a tendency to get over excited and bite I`m always watching him and get so embarrassed if he happens to try to bite a child

    LOL Melanie @ thinking your life might be easier on Monday once you don`t have 2 under 2, something for me to look forward to come early May but somehow I don`t think it will work LOL Have a great day on Sunday.

    Sarah - Ouchies poor Zander. Have a great day today at the meet up.

    Belinda - Yay @ your cleaning frenzy.

    I took myself off to the Dr on Thursday about a few things, my arm which is still no better, pap smear and decided to start the mini pill. Anyway my arm is CTS like I thought it was, Dr is hoping once Adrian is up and about more my arm will get better and also told me to splint it at night, hmmm I have a 6 month old to get up to at night, he also told me to get my husband to do the washing, what a joke!!!!! He gets annoyed at me when I mentioned it`s painfull so he`s not likely to help me out. So as I said my children are breaking my body.

    My Mum has $1000 worth of free qantas travel, she wants to take me and the boys somewhere, if we go before May Matthew travels for free, so where should we go?

    I measured Matthew`s length today and he`s grown 4 cms in 3 months, he`s now 91cms, he has started to look a bit skinny but they do say between 2 - 4yrs they do slim down, he`s forver on the go but still eats well.

    Hey Girls

    Sarah, hows Zander's arm? Poor little fella! Hows the whole fair trading thing going?

    Deb, sounds like you had a busy day in Geelong!! It must've been nice to visit 'home' even for that little while... have you settled in to your new place? Must be different!

    Dee, Owwch!! You are breaking!! Sounds like you need some help! You need to tell Mark that if he can't help you will have to hire someone because you'll be in plaser soon if it keeps up

    Melanie, I hope all goes well tomorrow

    I have the house to myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wato went out the river for the night and asked his parents if they wanted to have the girls for the night. So i get a whole night of peace and quite

    Emily had her 1st day at 3yo kinda Friday... she loved it!! Here's a pic http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...ay3yo9-2-7.jpg

    Hey Tanya, his little arm is getting better slowly. On the fair trading front I'm just waiting now, they said someone would contact me in 14days & it's a week tomorrow. Yay on a night to yourself, sounds great, so what did you do? And OMG at Emily's kinder photo, she looks so much like you

    Aww Dee, sounds like you are falling apart. Hope you start to feel a bit better soon & that Mark helps a bit more than he has been. Wow at Matthew's length, Zander is still only around 84cm & slimming down as well. None of his size 1 pants fit him LOL, he's only in 0's most of the time!

    Good luck for the party today Melanie, I'm sure it will go well

    Deb LOL at Miss Gabby, sounds like she wants to be boss all the time! I'm sure she'll grow out of it though.

    As for us, we have Piper's 2nd birthday party today. It's pouring down with rain & has been since 8.00 last night, so I doubt they'll be going in the little pool like was planned! We bought her a little Dora thing for her present, it's a flower with each of the petals having different colours & it says the colour in Spanish & English as well as talking about what things are each colour. Zander loved it when we bought it the other day, so he might be getting one for his birthday too.

    Speaking of which, what is everyone planning for birthday presents this year? I find it really hard cos Christmas has only just gone & the toys have to be advanced enough to get them through another 9 months IYKWIM. So far he's getting a fan for his new room & mini Dyson from my parents, toy sorter rack thing for his new room from us and a table & chairs from my sister. Otherwise I have no idea. Anyone wanna give me some suggestions?!

    Sarah...Watched a movie and went to bed!! BLISS!!!!!!!!!!1

    As for the birthday thing, we (wato and I) were discussing this only Friday... I think we are going to get her a Buzz Lightyear (Emily and Violet LOVE Woody and Buzz) and maybe one of those jumping ball things with the ears.. not sure if she is too young and Emily will use it more... but I know she loves them!! She hangs onto the ear things and jumps flinging it all over the place, laughing her head off!! Too cute!

    But your right... it's a tough decision!

    Tanya
