    LOL Bel at the Jedi powers and mind control. DH calls Blake a Junior Jedi Knight, and is teaching him the way of the force!

    Bel, glad the party went well too. Glad to hear that there was no ill-effect from the MMR shot. I better book Blake in for his too. Something I don't really want to do, but better to get it out the way sooner than later, particularly with Paris looming mid-July.

    Vanita, sorry to hear Dion's got a cold again. I hope he gets over it soon. LOL @ him pulling the video tapes out rather than putting them away!

    Brooke, Maya's a clever girl helping you clean up! Congrats on finallly settling on your house! Woo Hoo!! Good luck for your job interviews.

    We had playgroup this morning. Blake was a bit feral at home, very grumpy and cracking the $hits over nothing so I was hesitant to go however we had to return the photos/money from the playgroup photo session the other week, and I was on morning tea so we kinda had to go. We had a good time once we got there although I think he was tired still or his teeth were bothering him or something. We're also going to have a little party for him at the first session back from holidays as it will be just after his birthday. It makes me feel good as I'm struggling to fit into the group a little bit, and it's nice to know they want to help us celebrate.

    It's funny looking at photos of ohter bubs and seeing the same clothes as your own buuby!! Rach, that one of Blake in the stripey suit - we have that one that Pup is just about to grow out of. I love that one!!

    Well, VERY funny story coming up...

    every night, I get DH to bath/shower Pup as it is really the only time they have alone together, and it gives me 15 - 20 minutes to run around, load the washing machine, finish getting dinner ready, get Pup's stuff ready for bed etc etc.. They are both in the bath together, so they can spend quite a bit of time in there playing with all the bath toys etc. I secretly think that DH loves the fact that he has a legitimate reason to play with toys in the bath. Anyway, a few weeks ago, Pup farted in the bath and DH was looking for the follow through. But there was none. He is such a woos about poo. If I am changing Pup's nappy and I get it on me, DH is like "ooooohhh yuk, get away...." So I walk into the bathroom to get Pup out and DH tells me that Pup had the concentrated look on his face and was farting, but it was just farts. I look in the bath and there is all these little bit of poo - both floating and sunk. I pointed this out to DH, who almost FLEW out of the bath. Only that he couldn't leave the baby in the bath by himself, he would have been gone!. But you should have seen him trying to get the poo out of the bath. Here he was trying to scoop it up with the face washer. I told him to just grab it with his hands, but nooooooooo. I laughed so hard.

    Men.......

    LOL @ your DH Hay. I have to say that although my DH doesn't normally freak out about poo, I don't think he'd be too happy to have poo in the bath with him!

    Hi Rachel - cute piccies of beautiful Blake.

    Hayseed - hope you're on the mend. LOL at your DH and his poo phobia. He should be a bit tougher than that as a man who runs a farm!

    oh damn...just as i get started...bub wakes..post this anyway.

    Hi all round...

    Hay - buaah haaa haa your DH IS a wuss!! I can't believe he walks around all day in the cow poo and probably has it all over him, but he doesn't like his own son's poo - not that we "like" it, but we live with it!! How funny!! My DH is a bit funny too about it, but he's not that bad!!

    Rach - just had a squiz at the photos of Blake - he is such a cutie!! Growing up very quickly.

    Deb - come back soon when Al's occupied...

    Coby seems to be ok after his injections, although, his runny nose is back with a vengance. He had a slight temp yesterday but I think that might have been teeth, his cheeks have been rosey for a week now, wish they'd hurry up. Aren't teeth horrible for them - poor little vegemites!

    Hay/Deb how's the TTC going?

    Brooke - hows the packing?

    Kate - just read that thread, geez there's some scare mongering going on in there....There are actually 3 separate injections that are given at the same time. And I guess if you are concerned, there is no hard and fast rule about having your child immunised at 12 months, you could wait until the specific time when autism shows itself, so after 18 months, so you could do it at 2 years I guess, there is no law that you have to have it done before then, its just that you have to have immunisations up to date for your child to go to school....

    I have just had my son immunised and spoke at length with my gp about these concerns and he assured me that there is no medical evidence of any link between MMR vaccine and Autism. And if there were the slightest chance that there was a link, they would have stopped administering it immediately, just like they did with all those arthritis and blood pressure tablets that they recalled etc last year, it was an immediate response by the government...

    He said that there are more babies "surviving" because of medical advances than would have years ago, like the babies that are born very prematurely who are surviving now that wouldn't have survived 10-20 years ago or those that have health issues that are now fixed because of medical advances. He also said that the autism spectrum has grown and research into the area has increased, therefore there are more children being diagnosed with an autism related disability etc.

    I was very concerned about giving my son this vaccine, but my GP assured me that there was definitely no link between that and autism in children, he said that children are born autistic they don't develop it suddenly.

    I just hope he is right.....

    Vanita, where are you? You're probably the best one to ask about the MMR shots.....

    Hi everyone!

    Bel - Sorry if TMI but we're trying very hard this month lol!! Lets hope all the hard work pays off. I bought some OPK stick things for the first time ever and started on day 8 after AF started as it suggested on the box. And there were 2 strong lines...so we started early. Maybe I O earlier than normal?? But I kept testing anyway and the lines were there for 4 days before I gave up with the sticks WTF!!hehe they are probably made by a man! So who knows, we've got a TWW, but will probably keep trying until AF comes, as we just don't know about my cycle anymore.
    glad the injection went well for Coby. Those teethie pegs give them hell don't they? Makes you wonder sometimes why nature is so mean. Al has 2 on the bottom and 3 on the top - one of the top front ones is still not down yet though (hope it comes!!lol)
    He woke with a rash on his back today so we're keeping an eye on it. Maybe a sweat thing, i hope.
    LOL at the little Jedi you have there!!

    Kate - enjoy your restful weekend honey. Will be good to get a break, you're a lucky one to have some support there. You're not an old lady, so don't beat yourself up. Get those feet up and zone out.

    We are going to have the vaccinations - I think they are essential. I've read the horror stories too, and pray that it wouldn't ever happen to us. But to not be vaccinated is also a huge risk, considering the amount of travelling we intend to do.

    Al is on a huge learning curve right now. He has quickly picked up 'Ta' and gives me whatever is in his hand. He is saying 'mumma' (yay) although not to me specifically (pmsl). And he is eating off a plate AND not throwing it on the floor afterwards!
    He's cruising and is standing on his own unintentionally more and more often. At this rate he'll be doing algebra and long division before his first birthday lol.

    I have my final exams starting tomorrow and 2 next week, then its over with my Danish study. yeehaa! Unless I decide to go back and get a further qualification, but I may put that off until next year.

    WTG Deb, hope you ace those exams honey!! Good luck with the TWW and TTC, we've been "busy" too this month, so hopefully it will pay off. I have those stick things too, maybe I should try them....

    Wow at Al learning Ta and eating off a plate etc he's going great guns and yes you're right, he'll be a regular Albert Einstein before we know it!

    Thanks for the back up on the vaccinations, I feel better knowing that others have done it too for the same or similar reasons we did. We just feel that they are at a huge risk if they don't do it and they could end up with brain damage if they get measles, so I just think that its a big risk to take, too risky for my little guy!! I just pray that he'll be ok....

    When are you planning on coming back to Oz?

    Thanks Bel for the luck, it'll be fine. I am taking the laidback approach and not worrying too much about the results. Unlike a lot of my class mates, I'm doing this course for fun.

    Hehe yes young Einstein here. Forgot to mention he has a second bruise on his forehead now. He did a classic manouvre whilst drumming yesterday. He was cleverly standing and beating on his djembe (drum) and then lost balance pushed it forward, the drum rocked backwards then forwards - then Al fell forward and gave it a good headbutt before they both fell on the floor. The first bruise is still there - nearly 2 weeks, so it was a really bad one.

    We plan to come back to Oz for another visit in January but it will depend on how pregnant (if at all) I am. We will probably come and settle back there in 4-5 years, but its not set in stone.

    Some things I like about here are - education (very laidback and lots of room for creativity and play for the small ones) - public health system is very good - environment is quite clean, not too much traffic, which is dreadful in sydney, where I come from - lots of public facilities which are free to use and well maintained (eg playgrounds are fully equipped, clean, bursting with activity and they are abundant).
    But Oz has the beautiful climate, the big homes and gardens, wonderful nature...I imagine setting up in northern NSW when we get back, so we need to be financially set up to manage that.
    ..phew...gee Al is having a lovely long sleep...sorry for the long posts...You can tell I am supposed to be studying teehee

    Kate - check out this very interesting and reassuring information I have found on MMR vaccine - seems that there IS a lot of scaremongering going on ----- here'tis

    not at all Kate, like I said, I had exactly the same concerns as you, I feel like its better to be informed about everything than bury your head in the sand. Did you click on that link? I found that info very reassuring...

    PS thanks for the info about neat links!!

    Hi girls, I agree it is a lot of scaremongering, with none of it evidence based, this is just the age where autism is picked up, as kids start walking, socialising etc that the autism is now picked up. The autism no's increasing is more better diagnosis than anything else.

    Wow Deb, have you got the uni fee's ready? sounds like Al's developing at great guns!!
    The only things Dion does is stuff he's not allowed to,a nd not stuff to brag about LOL, ( like he can pull all the toilet paper off the roll in under 30 seconds, and if the sliding door doesnt have the security door closed, he opens the other door and crawls out the front towards the road before you can sneeze. he can pull alll 50 videos out of the cabinet in less time than I can go to the loo.

    I havent started organising Dions bday and its killing me, LOL sooo much to do, but I am on leave for 2 weeks now ( mind you so are the big girls as of this arvo) so holiday activities begin, I dont enjoy these holidays as much, as its too cold and wet to do the "free" go for bike rides, go to the park etc

    OMG you girls can talk! I turn my back for a minute and there's post after post after post. Interesting discussion on MMR, although yes I think it's a little scaremongering too. Blake will be getting his as soon as I get my act together.... picks up phone to call DR. BRB... tried calling Docs but they line's engaged.

    Not much energy for personals. Blake had me awake for nearly 4 hours last night, yes 4!!! I'm so tired. I don't really know what he was disturbed about. I think his teeth, maybe a constipation tummy ache? as he didn't poo much yesterday and he normally poos all the time. Anyway, after hand holdign in his cot, patting him, getting into the single bed with him, a bottle, Panadol, Brauers Teething Relief, Bonjela, Nurofen, nappy change, watching the golf together @ 4am, standing and rocking, swinging him - you get the idea - he finally got to sleep. The hardest thing was that if our trip hadn't been delayed I'd have been on the plane last night instead of settling my boy. *sigh* Oh well, I guess we'll both get some sleep today.

    Not much other news... to tired to think anyway. It's school holdays starting tonight so we'll have a busy fortnight I guess.

    Got through to the docs and Blake's booked in for 3rd July. Yeah I know it's a while away but if I don't book it they are too busy for when I want to get in. IYKWIM. It also gives us 11 days before we fly to Paris for any ill-effects to show up, which I hope they don't.

    That's all for today - too tired for personals. have a great weekend everyone, particularly Kate at your Mum & Dads. Get some rest!

    Hi girls,

    I have been constructing my post in Word for 2 days and will post today or tomorrow.

    Vanita, I hope you are on BB as I need some advice. Amy is sick and we need to make an appointment with a doctor. Can you recommend any good doctors in Pakenham??


    Thanks in advance.

    Have lots to post, speak to you all soon.

    Here is the start of my big post....

    Ok I am back and it has taken me a day to catch up. I have a new strategy on how to keep up – I print out the posts in Word and write my comments on a piece of paper on my 1 hr train trips to and from work. It is hard to fit in BB while at work but I will give it a good go to keep up. So apologies if this sounds really old as I have gone back to the end of May.

    Kate – I agree with the other girls about you being a mod, you would do a great job! Amy has also started screwing up her face and sniffing and looks so funny with all her teeth. Poor little Kelse with her eczema, at least the doctors seem to know what they are doing and the cream has helped. Amy also plays with her ears and DH did some research and found out that it is an acupressure point that relieves pain when teething. What a clever girl clapping her hands! I hope your BP goes up again, just take it easy (if you can). It is tough on you ATM but you can do it.

    Hayseed – Yay for pup crawling and you are right about life never being the same again. Isn’t it cute when they wave bye.

    Bel – We did the free portrait thing with Pixie Photos. We were happy with the freebie and bought one other for $50 but we were not impressed with the rest and were not paying $400 for them. We won’t go back as it is a bit like a process line of kids and the photos are all the same.
