    Happy birthday Hayseed, well tell us all what wonderful things/gifts your husband did/got for you......

    He better have made it special!!

    My DH didn't make mine all that special last year, I mean it was my 30th, but I didn't get any fuss made of me....so Im with you, this year better be much more exciting/better etc....

    Coby is still sick, but now I've got it too. There was plenty of vomitting yesterday, as he was sorta gagging on flem that he was coughing up, just bloody horrible for the poor little man!! And I woke up this morning with it, so off we went to the Dr and I told him that I just wanted something for Coby's cough (to stop him vomitting) but he said that its a virus and wouldn't go away without antibiotics. So as per our discussion earlier (last thread) I am not keen on antibiotics for a cold, but when its something like a virus that the body won't fight itself (Dr's words not mine) I will go for the antibiotics.

    No good you're sick there Bel. Hope the antibiotics knock it out of you quickly. Get some rest! Feet up, telly on, and forget about the housework!


    About wrapping from the last thread...We haven't wrapped Al since he was 4 weeks. There was a bit of pressure here as wrapping isn't the done thing and I got a lot of negative comments about it. But it worked for us for that time until Al learned to get out of his wrap. Now I always tuck him in very firmly at night time as part of his sleep routine. He can get out but its a quick tuck in during the night when he wakes now and he's back to sleep. (God I hope this phase continues - fingers crossed)

    Hi girls,

    well DH did pull his finger out and I had a lovely day. I got a silver love heart pendant and card (with Pup's hand print) from Pup and a gold bracelet from DH. He also took me out for lunch and for once did not b*tch about hurrying home afterwards (even though I did have to get home to put Pup down for a sleep).

    Then tonight, we went over to IL's house and had tea. I share my birthday with DH's sister - we are exactly the same age too! - and my mum came as well, so the "mum's" cooked dinner for us. And I got some nice pressies from the Il's too!

    So he did good today!

    Brooke, 64 days !!! It'll be over before you know it, hang in there and you will make it through, as tough as it is!!!

    Hey Brooke, hang in there honey, it will be over before you even know it, and you will have done it then, and don't need to keep worrying about doing it in the future....You can finally relax. Yay at Maya sleeping through, she's a good little chicken!!

    Hayseed, well done on your birthday treats, you deserve it!! Good ole DH came through again!! How is Pup going?

    Deb, why are the Danes so opposed to wrapping?

    Hi Fletch, yeah my clinic sister told us that they go backwards before they go forwards, so only a matter of days for cute little Zane to start crawling!! Its fantastic as they are starting to become more mobile, therefore are more happy, I don't know about all your bubs, but Coby gets so frustrated because he just wants to move!!

    Caz, I forgot to mention before that I have used both chiro and osteo and I found osteo less invasive. My DH has a pretty bad neck prob, so went to see the top surgeon in Australia about it, and he said to him that you should NEVER get your neck cracked, as it only creates problems. Meanwhile, I had been going to a chiro and having my back and neck cracked after having Coby, but needless to say I haven't been back, Im just using massage at the moment. Some osteos use cracking (manipulation) but most use new forms of manipulation including massage and resistance work, it really works too. It stopped my migraines for years....Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Hey Beckles, how's the fitness going? I played netball for the first time in 18 months the other night and my god I am sooooo sore!! Feel like I've been run over. Probably doesn't help that I have a cold and its making me feel pretty crappy too...

    Coby is a bit better today, still runny nose etc, but I think the antibiotics are finally kicking in for him. Wish I could say the same for me, I feel worse today than I did yesterday....Oh well, only a matter of time before I feel better. Like a true mother, I will soldier on!!

    Hope you are all having great days with your bubs!!

    Hi Bel, quick one before I hit the sack..

    Sorry to hear you're feeling worse, hope that the day gets better for you.

    As for the wrapping, the Danes would give me strange looks when I said I wrapped the baby - like I was inflicting some sort of bizarre torture on the child. They believe in the baby being 'free to move' I guess. There was no real reason given to me, just that it wasn't done. My MCHN likened it to something she had read about in Russia where they wrap the baby and hang them from the ceiling - like a hanging cocoon sort of thing. Obviously she thought I was being rather exotic! \/

    Nightie night!

    ps chocolate free from tomorrow (god I stuffed myself today lol)

    Kate, good on you. I have found that we departed from some of our old friends after we had children, coz of how their behaviour or opinions would effect our kids. You do whats right for your child, and sometimes it means not socialising with certain people ( IYKWIM>) I also turned into the swearing nazi when the children turned about 2 and started to talk!!! Its hard being around people like that though isnt it??
    ](*,) ](*,) One of my co-workers sets my blood to boil every time I talk to her, and worse luck I cannot avoid her, so I am just polite and no more! ( she had a baby 3 days after Dion and still sleeps in every morning til 11, the baby just lies quietly in her cot til mum feels like attending to her - as told to me by her UGH) :fuming:

    WTG Kate, I would have told them then and there though!

    Like Vanita said, we've dropped certain "friends" (and I use the term loosely) since we had Coby, having a child certainly sorts out who are real friends and who aren't.

    Coby is feeling much better today, I am feeling a little better too, although I've got this horrible cough now that feels like Im going to cough up a lung!! Oh well, we'll be fine soon.

    Coby is crawling heaps and pulling himself up on us all the time. Its pretty funny really. Yesterday when I was feeling sorry for myself, I was going to give Coby a bottle and instead of me holding him (cause I just didn't have the strength) I propped him up on a cushion and started to give him his bottle, when he took it out of my hands and started giving it to himself. He's held the bottle before, but its always been to heavy for him, but now he's so much older he's doing it all by himself. Oh I feel like I'm outdated now - he doesn't need me anymore No seriously, I am so proud of him, what a clever little man he is!

    How are you and all your clever bubs going??

    Well there you go Belinda, he's all grown up now, next thing you know you'll be nursing his bubbies!!!!! LOL
    WTG Coby!!!
    I see every stage, and development with joy, and sadness I miss whats come before and rejoice in whats yet to come, there are moments I know will be the best , and the worst. IYKWIM ????
    dion wasnt paying attention, and fell on his face this morning from sitting, split his top lip, blood everywhere ( facial wounds bleed so much more than others) Very sad, but he can sit himself up from his tummy now, so I cant stop him of course it hasnt really bothered him since ( just me)

    OUCH! Poor Dion (poor mummy - I would have FREAKED!)

    Well, we went to the MCHN today and Pup has just cracked the 8kg mark =D> . Actually, I don't think he is quite 8kg. He was on the scales being weighed and he was overtired and started to cry. The scales were registering under 8kg (7.8kg or so) and the nurse gave him a metal bell to play with. Lo and behold, he was 8kg on the knocker!!! That's what's in his book anyway!

    He also had his assessments done and he got a good report on them all except crawling which he still isn't doing at all and his sitting got a "progression" mark. Nurse said to now get him onto soft finger food and that may help in getting more vegies into him if he does it himself. We're still struggling with the potato issue and the pumpkin is still hit and miss.

    We have our mums gorup meeting tomorrow. We have it the first Friday of the month at 2pm, but I am going to ask if we can switch it to 12pm because 2pm is right at the time that Pup is going down for his arvo sleep (and I guess so would some of the others too).

    Gunna be a hot one again tomorrow. Phew. I guess not many more left until next summer.

    We have finally decided on where we are going for holidays (which we are on from next Friday). We are going to travel over to Kangaroo Island and then come home via Adelaide (and see family and friends) and the Coonawarra region . We have 8 or 9 days.

    I've got another headache tonight which I'm hoping doesn't turn into another migraine. So I better get away from this computer screen and get to bed.

    Glad to hear pup "passed" his assessments and his 8 kg ( minus a bell)
    I did get a tad upset when I saw the blood ( though I freaked out totally when we had "first blood" for the twins, have since chilled minutely) this time I just yelled for the big girls to get a cold wet washer ( solves nearly everything, and after that is the ice pack LOL) by the time we had finished we both had to strip off coz of the blood.

    Hope you have a fantabulous holiday next week, are you driving???( I thought you would have to have a holiday in June when the milk was off like most dairy) Its hard coordinating social things with the sleeps isnt it!!! Its still hot here, be glad when winter comes and I can snuggle in bed!!!!

    Hi Hayseed - good to hear Pup is going great guns. Kangaroo Island sounds wonderful, I hear it has very beautiful nature. Hope that headache passed quickly for you.

    Oh Vanita - poor little Dion, he really whacked himself, didn't he? Good thing you knew what to do - and that you posted instructions so I know what to do now (thanks).

    Al has got a few new little marks on his face the last few days. One was a slip in the bath - he was reaching for Quack quack the duck and slipped out of my arms hit the side of the bath and then ended up face down for a fraction of a second (mild heart failure here). The second on the centre of his forehead was a toy incident I think. And today he pulled his drum (which is quite heavy unfortunately) down onto his head. So he is in the wars. I suspect it is just the start of the scrapes he will be getting himself into!

    Otherwise he has been so much happier over the last week. He's a brand new baby. As most of you know, Al has a tendency to scream when he has a problem. Suddenly his problems seem to be evaporating. Maybe I'm working things out too, poor love has to deal with an amateur with me all the time. The screaming has become a lot less frequent.

    Sleeping all night now.

    Eating his solids. Although I discovered the trick with him is to give him some finger food while I spoon in his meal. He is frightfully independant and gets upset if he can't feed himself!! I am using toast at breakfast. A rice cracker or some meat at lunchtime. Same again at dinner. Are there any other good finger foods you are using?

    Loving his bottles.

    Enjoying the pram and the car.

    I think the big difference for him is being able to move and get what he wants. He is still commando crawling but very efficiently. He is really independant. And can play happily by himself for 45 minutes to an hour sometimes. Its a great period right now for us.

    So that's Al. Dh is away for work so we have been here on our own for 2 nights now. Thanks for listening to me rant, I was craving a chat!

    Wow Vanita, I would have freaked!! I hope poor little Dion's face is ok now, poor little vegie!!

    Hayseed hope you didn't end up with a migraine, you poor thing. Do you see an osteopath at all? They cured my migraines for me, I have had one in the last probably 2-3 years? Whereas I was getting them at least twice a month.... WTG with Pup getting to 8kg! Woohoo! I still don't think Coby is at 8 kg....

    Deb, sounds like Al is really in the wars poor little man!! I know what you mean about the screaming to get what they want, I have one of those babies too. Coby is a shocker, I'm wondering when (if ever) he will calm down and talk in his "inside voice" LOL!!!

    On the mend here finally, Coby seems a lot better today, although he's been waking up earlier lately, I think its because he's sleeping more during the day, and DH gets up around 5.30 to go to work, which wakes him up, because DH isn't all that careful about making noise and waking him. It frustrates the hell outta me actually, I make sure I tiptoe around at that time of the day because I know if he wakes then, he will be awake for good, and DH just doesn't even think about it, I just don't think they "get it" like we do.....Even when he comes home during the day if Coby is down for a nap, he will be really loud and shut doors quite loudly and slam cupboards etc and talk extra loud on his phone, its just frustrating!!! :fuming:
