    Yeah I would probably fly with him, as its only a short flight, and he should be finished ( or close to) his anti's If you're really worried get him checked by gp on friday or saturday. But make sure he's sucking a dummy on take off and landing to help the ears pop IYKWIM.



    Hehe Brooke, ooooh I wish I was joking LOL

    Hi girls,

    I am back...well sort of. I haven't been on for 7 weeks and have 255 pages to catch up on which I don't think I can do!! Have missed you all.

    Congratulations Kate!!!! Rachel told me you were pg, I am so happy for you.

    Congratulations on your engagement Brooke, sorry to hear Maya is sick. Good on you for losing 8kg.

    Yay on the tooth Dion!.

    Have had a quick scan though the personals and will make some time to catch up properly. Life has been so busy. We have sold our house and bought one almost 3 times the size in Pakenham Vic. It is an ex-display house and is on the net if anyone wants to see it. Just post in here and I will e-mail the link. Got a promotion at work and was in Sydney last week for 3 days. It was the first time I have left Amy but she coped better than me.

    Amy is doing great. She has 4 teeth and is crawling everwhere. She says Da da dad... and mum mum sort of and lots of other sounds. She is so cute when she talks to herself. She pulls herself up on furniture really well and walks along it. She is eating everthing we give her and is drinking from a straw. We will be weaning her off bottles in the next few months and just giving her milk with a cup. She was getting a bit scared when her friend who is 3 weeks older was squealing when they were playing so we took her to two indoor play centres on the long weekend, Monkey G and Lollipops and she had lots of fun. We need her to have more socialisation with other babies and mothers group has died out as no-one is going. Thought of doing a BB meet so the babies can socialise.

    We are still TTC. BD once or twice is not really making an effort so if I am not pg this time will have to try a bit harder. Currently in the TWW so will let you know.

    Have a great day. Couldn't sleep so I thought it was perfect BB time.

    Dion is funny, he wont eat lumpy baby food, only smooth ( like yoghurt, custards etc) AND our food ( real cauli, broccoli, potato, toast, sandwiches etc) No inbetweens LOL

    Hi Kate, yeah it was me, Coby won't eat any lumps, he gags on them all the time, I think as the paediatrician suggested, he'll always have a strong gag reflex because of the reflux issues earlier on. I can't believe that all the bubs we know that are his age are eating toast and sandwiches etc, and he is still on yoghurts and custards etc, mostly pureed stuff or really well mashed.....

    Well just been to Paed. He's happy with Dions development, and the dimetapp for the overmucous on the chest, no real answers yet, will have to wait and see if he develops asthma ( highly likely)

    Dontknow if I previously mentioned but Dions testes "float" they dont stay descended much, quite often the scrotal sac is empty!! Paed says his penis looks normal ( good to know hey LOL) but we need to keep an eye on the testes for the next ....... yrs????

    Big girls are at the games watching the gymnastics with my parents.

    He has an internal birhtmark they may need removing in future, we are just keeping an eye out.

    Hiya Fletchie
    An internal birthmark was a lump we found on his shoulder blade when he was a few days old, its slightly purple and feels like a little pea. Lakeisha had one on top of her skin ( a strawberry one, and its the size of two 50c pieces) they usually fade, hers is only pink and is flat now, and is about a 20 c piece size. But was thick and purple, and pulsing. Dions is down under the skin, so they cant be 100% sure its not something nasty, but they are failry sure its a birthmark ( which are genetic, I had one, and so did my mother)

    Apparently, the testes grow in utereo up near the kidneys and only descend after birth, they are on a cord, which connects them, most little boys descend and stay down, Dions were down in the first few months, but at the MHN visit in Jan she noticed they'd gone up again. They are connected to a muscle by these tubes, and when cold the muscle clenches to tuck them up to keep them warm, Paed told me how sumo wrestlers develop this muscle, so they can retract the testes at will!!!!!
    Anyway since MHN visit have paid attention to them, and noticed they are very rarely down anymore. Paed could gently bring them down, so they are not fused up there, but can happen, so we neeed to keep a close eye on them LOL 8-[ Thats why Dr's and MHn are concientious about checking each time, coz they can suck up!!!!

    Asthma is highly prevalent in mine and DH's family, we already have the big pump for Lakeisha, so am not looking forward to the torments of the future.

    he he he girls, just reading your posts on wee wee's!!

    Coby LOVES his, but he's also very rough, he sorta mashes it up and I wince when I see it, but its obviously not hurting him or he'd stop, he just loves it.

    Like I've always said, its their best friend from the time they are born!! :smt047

    Hey Kate, LOVE the new avatar! Looks great! If you have a boy you'll be fine, Im not a boy and I know what to do, in fact, I babysat my friend's little girl Maya a couple of weeks ago (she's the same age as Coby) and I didn't know what to do. Seems pretty silly really considering I've got the same as her, but it was just awkward IKYWIM 8-[

    Brooke, sounds like Maya is on the mend, poor little chicken, what exactly happens with croup? Is it just a big horrible coughing thing?

    We're off to the Dr again today, Coby has had a mild reaction to the antibiotics, he's broken out in some rashy thing, not bad but I know its there and if I continue to give the medication to him, it might make him sick. Has anyone had any sort of experience with this type of thing?

    Hi everyone

    Been offline for a week, damn puter! Freaked out cos a couple mths after Ry was born our hard drive died and we lost HEAPS of pics (4-6mths worth & almost all of Ryan's birth 'n 1st weeks :smt022) We hadn't been able to back em up again now as our burner wasn't working. Anyway it's all good, didn't lose anything and its all running with a brand new burner.

    Yes, I got a gorgeous dress! Ended up going late night shopping with a gf which was lucky cos that 1 shop I thought was left had also shut down. So trapzed around 'the fashion capital' for ages. Chaddy's fantastic if you've got hours of free time to walk around it and a spare $700+ to spend on a designer but since I was hoping not to fit into this dress the next on big occasion I found it quite hard. Got a dusty pink, halter neck, pleated satin dress from Review(similar M. Munroe's famous 1 with the wind gust thingy). Cost a lot more than I planned but..... DA DA.. \/ I GOT IT IN A SZ 8!!! WOOHOO! \/ So I should still be able to wear it when the last 10kgs comes off me

    Took Ryan to MCHN today. He weighed 7.3kgs at 8.5mths old, officially giving me 2 babies that are below the 3% mark. Oh well. I can't worry about it, he eats well and is alert and happy. She told me to give him alot of high fat dairy, avocado, meat, etc but I already had been, BTDT with Adara over n over again. I'm sure they've just got fast metabolisms. His length was 70cms which is ok.

    I'll be back with personals soon

    Yay they're both in bed! Wow, just checkin out my body in the av! \/

    Brooke - OMG, croup??! *HUGS* to you all! I bet you're glad you're not doing your prac now with everything Maya's going through. [-o< things ease up with her soon. Well done with your weight loss!! =D>
    Yeah I knew when DH was going to propose too, on Valentines Day he told me we were going for a picnic at a lake and that I was going to get an "extra special surprise" So much for the surprise! lol. Didn't take away from the excitement though and it was still beautiful When she's 2 would be a great time.

    Deb - Happy 8mths Al! Thats so gorgeous you celebrate the mths too O

    Kate - *HUGS* I know how difficult it is being super exhausted while pg & never able to sleep on top of it. Sleep whenever you can and I'll keep my Kelse sleeps a lot more soon. I'd love to see your bump too!

    Bel - wow, sorry to hear Coby has an ear inf. Adara had them constantly at about the same age, lasted about 6mths on & off. She's had fluid in her ears ever since that won't drain and now has significant hearing loss b/c of it, needing grommets. For the infection, I don't think there's much else you can do other than antibiotics and a vapouriser for the snuffles. It's common for babies to still have fluid once the inf's cleared, so I would take him back to your Dr to get em checked afterwards. If there's still some there, you can try Demazin or Dimetap to clear up his ears and sinises before it becomes a prob later. I found they didn't really help for Adara but hers was quite extreme. Claratyne works alot better for her but she gets hayfever too. I'd speak to your Dr about the best one for him, if it ever gets to that. No idea about the flying?

    Beckles - =D> on your walking!! WTG girl! How wonderful your boys are so good together

    Hi Gemma! Amy sounds like she's doing wonderfully (and so do you!) I'd LOVE to do a BB meet for the babies! Can you email me the link too pls? All the best TTC :luck:

    Vanita - I always wondered why the MCHN gave his testes a pinch, never thought to actually ask her though lol. That sums up how much help I am on that, sorry!

    Ryan fiddles a lot too n I'm sure it'll keep going for a looong time.... Adara also fiddles with it in the bath, she finds it hillarious esp when he wees but he doesn't when she grabs on! She's always grabbed at herself too making nappy changes fun. With the boy thing, I'm finding even little things strange.. like choosing socks! I'm sure I bought him girls socks. Do boys have those ankle ones you fold down?

    Well I've babbled on and on for long enough! Love to all xx

    Hi girls,

    Brooke, you will be busy studying and I don't think you are crazy. Good on you for enrolling. Glad Maya is better now poor little thing.

    Mel, size 8!!! That's great, your dress sounds gorgeous. I'm sure Ryan will put in some more weight soon but at least you are not worried about him and he is fine. I will organise a baby meet up when life settles down a bit.

    Bel, Amy hasn't been on any medication or had a rash so I'm not much help but I hope the rash goes away and he doctor sorts it out with the antibiotics.

    Vanita, would love to catch up when we move. LOL at Dion, he does sound rough! Boys are harder to change than girls. I was changing my 6 week old nephew and had to manouver things around to clean up his pooey bum. He actually pooed all over me with a projectile one. I was a mess but luckily it didn't smell as he is bf.

    Hi Fletch. Hi Kate, hope you are not feeling so tired.

    Thanks all for the welcome back, I will send you the link soon. Amy has another toof, so that makes 5. She has 3 on the top and one of her middle ones hasn't arrived so she has a gap. She is also kissing which is just poking her toungue out and sort of licking. Amy has a new word too 'Cookie' because I always ask her where her little Cookie Monster is in the car. It is a broken 'Cooookkk eeeee' but she is so cute. We are off the the Pakenham Show today and a christening tomorrow so will catch you later. Have a great weekend.
