    Tanya, good on you for dyeing Alecia's hair. I'm sure it looks great. I bleached Joels hair a few months back now. Needs doing again but he also needs a good clean and tidy haircut for a special day out !!! Have to buy him new clothes too. Damn it.
    Fantastic news on your scan too. Bring on the baby making!!!

    I hope Violets cold doesn't get any worse and stops at the snotty nose. OMG am I hearing you on the toilet, either there or the bathroom. I can't bloody win. And no matter hwo many times you tell them, it still doesn't change. Something I would expect from Noah but from Mark and the big boys...

    Fi, that's cool, you don't need to say anything about Tehya's sleep. It's all good, just having a whinge as usual. So how is going to carry Jenna in this carrier?? Given that you are already carrying one baby around I can't imagine you'd want to be carrying 2. Or am I stupid and is it one of those backpack sort of carriers???

    Bloody freezing cold here today, having the iciest winds. Apparently it was snowing in the Blue Mountains. Good news is that we have gotten heaps of rain. Not that I'm loving it, but we are needing it.

    Tehya has turned into a little stripper. Walking through Best and Less today Tehya decides that she is going to pull her pants down and then take off. All afternoon now Ihas been spent with me pulling Tehya's pants back up... Flasher she is...

    Tanya - Woo hoo for the clear ultrasound! That's great! Alecia's hair sounds cool... I hope she didn't get into trouble. How's Miss Violet?
    We will be in our new house on the 16th... so not this coming weekend but the weekend after. A bit exciting

    Fi - I worked today and am working tomorrow too Perhaps next week? Good on you with the ergo. They look pretty cool (have seen pics on NC and some of the nappy sites). Did you get a vacuum cleaner? Which one?

    Trish - LOL @ Tehya the stripper! The cheeky monkey! So long as she drops the habit by the time she's a teenager, hehehe.

    Gab spent the day with Nanny today (and was apparently delightful). Another Nanny day tomorrow then it'll probably be my last day of emergency teaching whilst in Geelong. Kind of sad.... kind of, LOL. I'm at my old school tomorrow so I'll have to make sure I say see-ya to a few of the teachers there.

    Well the ergo is not for me while being pregnant! I took jenna shopping in it today, and it worked pretty well. BUt I got some pretty bad pains, so I'm picking it will be when baby comes out - or for Daddy!
    Trish - Its a carrier that can go on the back, the front or the hip. I had Jenna in the back today.
    I should go and have a rest. I'm rooted. Does anyone else find during full moons their kids sleep atrociously? Every single month its the same

    Hi everyone,
    Guee I'm so sorry for being so slack
    (Inserting exciting news)
    Guess what???


    Eliza said a proper word today...pmsl "the wiggles" 2 sentance word I say
    I'm so excited I keep showing her pictures so she will say it again ohh and she said Ham but that is just one of those generic words.
    Resigned from my first job today, I rang one place yesterday and ended up speaking to heap of HR people I worked with so in a couple of weeks I'll be doing 2 days a week which is super for me!
    Glad everyone is well as for your "Full moon" theory we had our first kinda bad night a wake up at 12pm but she was back in her bed by 12.30.

    Hi All

    I am such a slacker....Always reading - never posting....

    Ella is going back to RCH to see an ENT specialist. Her ears are full of fluid again and she is unable to hear most things unless you yell at her....

    I thought that something was wrong when she stopped with the new words. Although her most recent words are " mummy car". When she is in the highchair, she can see my car out the window.

    Bec, Deb & Fi - I saw Marlene (nuk girl) at the market last weekend and she is expecting another baby in January. She asked me to say hi to you all.

    Going to bed now as we have swimming lessons in the morning. Bye for now....until next time.

    Angela & Ella

    Fi - bummer @ the ergo not being ok for you whilst preggo.

    Bec - You're a crack up girl! I can just see you sitting in front of Eliza with your flash-cards (Lisa Simpson style). 'Dodecaheeedron' LOL. What a clever little miss putting two words together!!

    Ange - thanks for telling us about Marlene. That's lovely news. Sorry to hear about Ella's hearing Poor chicken.

    We'll be emptying our house this weekend. Kinda sad

    Sarah, totally agree. Every night around here is a full moon. What I would give for sleep. Hope Zander is doing well and his snotty nose has cleared up and is sleeping well.

    Fi, what a bummer about the Ergo. I couldn't imagine any form of baby wearing when pg. Your a braver woman than I for even trying. Hope you got some decent sleep last night too.

    Bec, ooohhh you had me excited then. I thought you had other exciting news. Not that Eliza putting 2 words together isn't excititng enough but ykwim.

    Ange. Sorry to hear about poor Ella. I hope you get some answers. Do you find the water at swimming affects her ears at all?? I know I had to stop Tehya for a while as her ears were constantly getting runny.

    Deb, aaww It's sad packing up your home. Leaving your memories of all good times there. Think of it as a good thing. A new home to make new memories in. A home to have a new baby or 5 in

    Had an ok night up until 3am when Tehya decided to stay awake for 90minutes. What is the go there. Am in the *****tiest mood. Well not really I just want some quiet and it's not happening. Mark is taking the boys camping today but it is already raining here so don't know how they are going to go. Can't imagine it would be much fun if it rained the whole time.

    OHHH sweet serenity. Now... who can I get rid of Tehya to?????

    Yep the snotties have cleard up but OMG at sleep :eek: At least Aaron got a taste of what I have most nights because I refused to get up because I had to work. That said, I still got up at least 4 times! Soooo tried after work & a bad night but we have our school reunion on tonight so I can't even have a nanna nap BUT Zander is staying over at Granma & Granda's house for the night, so I might get some sleep. Although ovulation is just around the corner...... Anyway

    Good luck chasing the eggy Sarah! Have fun
    I refuse to get up every night anyway - despite the fact I dont have to work. I'm too tired anyway being pregnant, and sleep issues for myself, plus if I get up during the night I have to go to the toilet a billion times. Plus Jenna settles really well for shane - and he can sleep through anything, so bugger it! He does it all

    Trish - I am having a "you" run of luck with the car. Last week a ticket, today I dinged it. Couldn't believe it!! Luckily I just ran the car side along someone's bullbars, and Shane has pretty much cut and polished the whole thing out. Was very embarrasssing.....
    Hope you had a nice day today in girly land. And maybe a good nights sleep tonight?

    Angela - thanks for the update on Marls - I actually saw her at my last appt at the FBU and knew that she was preggers. I think I told Jo Deb and Bec, but I hadn't seen you. I'm so sorry about Ella's ears. Hopefully she will pick up after the specialist appt.

    Beccie - you know I think you are a clever girl getting a good part time job. Specially like the part time bit Any new words from Eliza today? I swear if I have to watch that bloody wiggles DVD one more time I will scream......!!! lets do the monkey - oh oh ah ah oh oh ah ah ARGH!
    Normally Jenna says bye and waves at the TV when the credits come on a show. With the wiggles shes saying MORE!!! I may need to buy the new DVD.

    Deb - how sad on the house. Never mind - onto bigger and better things huh? Remember to pop over this week if you need a play centre with toys. Only not Tuesday arvo (MG) or Wednesday before 10am.

    We bought Jenna's new bed today! Yeeha! We ended up getting an ensemble as I could just see Jenna cracking her head on a bedhead. We got a kiddies one, but it was a decent on from Captain Snooze for about $400. She threw in a pillow. So it arrives on Wednesday, it will be interesting to see what she thinks of the new one. Its alot higher which isn't great, but we shall see.
    We also bought a new vacuum. I have already done the house today I was so excited. I had really shopped around, and had finally decided on the top of the line Nilfisk. So Good Guys gave me a price of $650 cash, and then I saw Myers had it advertised for $649. They wouldn't go any lower, so I sent Shane back to Good Guys and he brought it home for $550!!! That was $200 off the marked price. Astounding, and its a great little monster with lots of suck.
    Now I just have to justify a iPod in there somewhere.... Hmmmm....

    Hope you all get GREAT nights sleep (and here's hoping Jenna sleeps and Shane doesn't snore again.)

    Woo hoo for your new purchases, Fi! I should have sent you to retravision to see my sister! Sounds like Shane got a pretty good price anyway Hope Jenna likes her new bed! I'll definitely try to pop over at some stage. I'm sure I'll be hanging to get away from Mum, LOL.

    Sarah - how did your reunion go? Mine is meant to be this year too but I've yet to hear of one being organised. One friend was trying but I think he is counting on me to help. It ain't gonna happen if they rely on me, LOL. Hope you got some sleep!

    We had my step sister's bday party last night. They hired out a function room. Gabby had a blast running around with the other kids on the dance floor. She loved the balloons (of course!) and even got her very own lolly bag. I let her have a lollipop but hid the rest (stacks of other lollys that I really don't want her to have). Somehow she managed to steal someone else's lolly bag and scored another lollipop! Cheeky monkey!

    This is our last morning in our house (at least living in it) so I'll be off to Mum's. She has a computer so I'll still be here, hehehe. Can't get rid of me

    Fi, you spke waaaay to soon!! Violet didn't sleep well... no I dea what her problem was!!

    She would scream if you left the rom. I ended up stripping both of them off (Emily eventually woke up too!!) and had a shower with them, read them a story and put them back to bed! It worked... finally 3am!!

    FI, what a buggar. ThankGod Shane could just buff your car, pretty much the same as mine was for damage, just not the oher car... How rude is the bloody government or who ever it is the money goesto for our fines. I paid mine weeks back, and do you think they even bothered to send a letter to say thanks we received your payment. If I didn't pay it you can bet I would've got another fine from them. How rude

    How is Jenna going in her new bed, or is she stil in the cot for now??

    Deb, sounds like you had a great time at the party. HEHE on Gab stealing an extra lollipop. Good on her Aww sad that you've left your house now. Hope it wasn't too hard for you. Have a good rest this week at your mums before pushing off again. I hope all goes smoothly for you.

    Sarah, forog tot ask, how did the reunion go?? Hope you had a great night that was followed by a productive night Hopefully Zander slept ok for you lastnight.

    Tanya, sorry to hear that you had a shocker night. You got the girls up for a shower late at night??? I guess if it works for you. Hopefully you got better sleep lastnight though.

    Well our girly night didin't stay completely girly. Brandon ended up staying home with Teh and I. We went up and grabbed some dvds for me and an xbox game for Brandon. I had Teh in bed by 7.30 and watched my movies. Failure to Launch - quite funny with Sarah Jessica parker and Matthew McConaughey - drool. Then I watch brokeback mountain. Not a bad movie. Just wish Heath would open his bloody mouth when talking. Watched another yest morning but can't remember what that one was called.
    Teh woke at 9.45pm then again at 4am - that's pretty good for her. I could'nt go back to sleep though and by the time I did she was waking again around 5ish and up for good around 6.30. So pretty much I was awake form 4 am. Soooo bloody tired still.

    Mark and the boys got back around 3ish in the afternoon. And all started again for another shocker with Tehya. Down to bed around 8.15 up again by 9.15, then again at 1am and another 3 times before up for good at 6am. When is this kid going to get it!!!

    Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Monday and that all little people are behaving themselves.

    Trish, yep... I ended up at my wits end and thought ...'What will relax them and help them sleep... a bath... I ain't running a bath! A shower!!" So that is what I did. It worked, and that is all that matters I won't be doing it agian in a hurry tho!
    And yes I did have a better night last night... not much, but better none the less!! It took a couple of hours to get Violet to sleep. But I wasn't budging! And she finally went to sleep and slept all night! *sigh*

    Urgh at your nights sleep (or lack there of!!) Maybe you should get pinky's book??? Never read any of her stuff, but hey, it might just be the ticket??

    HAHA, I know what those nights are like where you'll do just about anything to get them to sleep short of a hammer on the head. LOL.
    I know that I realy need to knuckledown on Tehya for a good week solid and maybe we'll get there, it's just a matter of having the bloody energy to start with to do it.

    She is very stubborn though, I can leave her in the cot crying it out for up to 30 minutes like I did yesterday, seh was asleep in my arms and the minute I put her in the cot and walked otu she started screaming. Thought that I would leave her and see how she went but she didn't settle. I ended up getting her up and cuddling her for the next damn hour to get her back to sleep.

    Yep, that is what Violet has been doing!! Norty girls! She would be happy if I stood at the end of her cot alllll night, but if I dare walk out! Wato picks her up and nurses her, which to be honest, I don't think helps (she always wakes up and cries when put back to bed). He is usually really good with the girls but he had had enough of sooking and kept growling. So I told him he wasn't helping and he tried to calm down, but I ended up talking care of her. Wato really can't stand it when they cry for no reason.

    So, i ended up using controlled crying I think??? Dunno, I just knew that I wasn't putting her in my bed (letting her win) and I wasn't nursing her (her win again). I just hope tonight is a little better.

    Mark's the opposite, I think he could leave her tp scream for a month. Noah on the other hand. I'm the one the crying and whinging gets too. I can't handle it. I wish I could leave Teh in the night but she wakes Noah up then we have 2 awake, which you know how bad is.

    Of course Tehya is in my arms now and has just crashed out in 5 minutes flat. If only she'd do that of a night. Only I know she'll sleep for an hour or so if I'm lucky and that will be it for the rest of the day until tonight. Cow, I was hoping for a nana nap today. i really need one.
