    [B]Fee[B] - Sounds like you tore really bad or had a bad cut? After our first child, DW had some issues. She tore a little but was sniped to keep from tearing real bad. Not sure the entire situation rather partially mental or physical, but for a very long time after wards she hated DTD. She would fight the urge to "git it out". Eventually things did clear up, but she did talk to her doctor about it and was checked out. If it still hurts and is a big problem you should defiantly go look (by the time I post this I will assume you have..lol). My DW thinks that it was a combination of mental and physical aspects. In part she could not enjoy DTD because she was always too dry which did not help the rest of the situation.

    by the way, cute little guy you have there Fee.

    All - sorry if every thing is out of order in regards to posting to specific ones of you all and then posting a general. I am glancing through starting with thread 1 and so if I don't post as I think/read it then it probably wont get done at all. A

    As to teeth, our little man has two razors poking out of his mouth. Has been drooling pretty bad and having a very hard time with it for a couple of weeks or so now. Oh ya, and when it's "Dinner Time" he likes to use his emerging teeth a little and when DW yelps he looks up at her with his big blue eyes and laughs. She's a sucker! lol

    The little man is usually a pretty happy baby. He has stolen his mommy's heart and reawakened in her a desire for a population boom...not sure how many little ones this little guy will lead to..LOL. There is a possibility over the new years we will all pack up and run to my parents place which will be around a 3 - 4 hour drive; not sure how he will do for that let alone sleeping and staying in a strange home. My too little girls were always a bit cranky and restless as a baby when not at their home.

    Well all, I think thats all for now. Hope you all can get a little more sleep. DW work's from home and was asked to do a specific job which required her to make herself available to work till 3 am. So many a night she works till 1am - 3 am then has to get up at 7am. I think she is going give up that specific role and hope not to loose too many hours/pay over it but she is dying with those kind of hours and feeding Corban every couple of hours.

    Cassie -Loved that Christmas picture of Dylan.

    KMH - Your poor little girl (tonsillitis)!

    We tried to go out to dinner last night with Mark's friends to Montezumas. I knew it would not work! I remember going there a while back with Mark and it was quite crowded and noisy. We were due to meet everyone there at 7.00 pm so I did Cooper's bath and last feed at home around 6.00 pm as normal. He fell asleep on the drive to the restaurant but woke up as we were strapping him into the pram damn!

    We managed to wheel the pram through the tables etc to our spot. He was quite (but awake) for a while and then he started crying. Mark took him out to hold him I guess it was the only way to try and calm him down but I knew he wouldn't go to sleep. He would just look around at everything and of course all our friends would talk to Cooper etc. But he still cried even with Mark holding him. I had to take him outside and cuddle him. He would not go back in the pram! Poor thing. I felt bad just having him out and that he couldn't fall asleep.

    Mark and I had to tag team with our dinner. One person outside with Cooper, one person inside scoffing down their dinner. We tried strapping Cooper back into his car seat but he cried. So I rang Mark inside the restaurant and said I was going to drive around the block! That put Cooper to sleep very quickly. I didn't even get to finish my dinner. The staff cleared it up but put it in a doggy bag. What a night.

    Cooper didn't stir at all when we got home and I moved him from the car to the cot. So that was good. Then he slept until 5.30 am which was also good. And of course, after that feed, he would not go back to sleep. He is so eager to start his day! So played in our bed with him and then Mark put him in the rocker while he showered and got ready for work. I put Cooper back to bed just after 7.00 am and he's sleeping now.

    kmh Those photos are lovely! I especially love the B&W one. You should put that one in a frame!

    I hope your girls are feeling a bit better.

    Dustmite Nice to "see" you and thanks for your story on your DW. I actually tore, then was cut and then tore again. But still I think it was only a 2nd degree tear. So it could have been a lot worse. I never had any issues with the stitches or pain etc. I thought everything was okay until I went to see my OB 6 weeks post-birth. He said the scar tissue had healed too tightly. So yeah that's the problem. And yes I believe it's partly in my head too! I'm scared DTD is going to hurt. I haven't been to see my OB again but I think I will. I guess in the new year I will see him. I will probably have to be re-cut and re-stitched. Got to motivate myself to go (and get up the courage). We have tried to DTD but without getting far at all!

    Glad to hear Corban is going so well. Ouch with those teeth!!! I'm not looking forward to that. Cooper has clamped down a number of times and it hurt and he doesn't even have teeth yet!

    Hey ladies,

    hot hot hot here at the moment - 29 yesterday and supposed to be 31 today - it will be one of those two or three times a year we turn the air conditioner on!!!

    Charlie is onto Farex! he's had it the last 3 days and he LOVES LOVES LOVES it! he looks so funny trying to eat off a spoon - I think it might be helping his sleep though he woke at 11.30pm last night because it was so hot I think, he was just thirsty and then he slept through to 5.15am - that is not like him at all - but it was good!

    Fee - we had the same issues with Charlie this morning - I went to DH's christmas breakfast - it was at 7.30am and I thought maybe Charlie would be ok - he normally goes down for a sleep at 8am - but because he had been up since 5.15am he cracked it - so I had to leave - I really really wanted the french toast with bacon and maple syrup.. but Simon bought me an egg and bacon panini from Banjos whilst I was putting Charlie in the car - so I gobbled that up on the way home!

    Kelly - hope your girls are feeling better today - I agree with everyone that photo of you and your babies is beautiful - I hope it's in a frame somewhere!

    Mads - sounds like it wont be long before Freya is on the move!! what a clever girl being able to roll from front to back and back to front! Charlie can only go from his back to his tummy

    we have a busy busy weekend planned - so I don't know if I will be able to get back on here before Christmas

    I hope everyone has a fantastic first christmas with their babies and family - can't believe this time last year we were all dreaming about what it would be like to have christmas with little ones - time has flown! be good everyone and I hope father christmas is kind to your littlies! :P

    awwww I love you guys - thanks for being here all year and being supportive and funny and helpful

    Em.

    Em- I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your DH and Charli, i bet you have spoilt him rotten, I love that photo too, but when it is blown up Madison has some food on her nose, so i have to keep it small so you can not see it.

    Fee- It is really anoying when that happens, it means that you carn't really go out until they are a bit older, Charlotte is like that too, It's going to be hard Christmas day as we will be out ALL day.

    Dustmite- nice to hear from you, YOur poor DW, Charlotte hasn't tried bitting me yet, not looking forward to it.

    Poor Charlotte has runny poos and not weeing enough, so i have to start giving her water to drink, She has been asleep for nearly 2 hours so long for her.

    OK, the little dude decided not to sleep last night. Was really rough for DW and myself but mostly DW as she had to go to work at 7am this morning and he would not sleep. DW thought maybe it was because back of house was cold so she even stuck him in our bed but he just sweat-ed then.....and kicked, and grunted/groaned, etc. Then, early this morning when all the damage had been done the little guy passed some gas. We are thinking that was the whole problem and since he was not passing gas or burping we never thought about it. So DW and I (especially her) have eyes that are burning and a full day ahead of us!!

    Ahh, the joys of parenthood. It's amazing all the things I "forgot" about when I was lobbying for another baby....lol! Oh well, he is awfully cute!

    Since I think some of you are actually living or about to Christmas Eve (as opposed to the morning of 23rd here in the US) I just thought a quick Merry Christmas was in order incase some of you are about to disappear from the boards for a couple of days.

    Dustmite - that's it isn't it - as long as they are cute you can deal with the pinching and hair pulling, and leaking poos and non sleeping and squealing and grizzling....... have a great christmas yourself (and a happy birthday!)

    Hello everyone.
    I hope everyone had a great Christmas. What did your babies get for there first Christmas, Charlotte got heaps, too much.
    I am having heaps of trouble with her sleeping at them moment, she was putting herself to sleep until 2 days ago, where she wont sleep, and if she falls asleep in my arms and i put her down she will wake up screaming, I have tried patting and it wont work. GRRRRRRRRRR, Yesterday she had some pumpkin and loved it, so i gave her some farex today and she had heaps, loves her solids.
    I am off to the sales tomorrow, i hope i get some bargins.

    KMH - awesome about the solids. Corban hates anything but moms boob. He gets this nasty upset look on his face no matter what type of solid you try to give him. It's pretty funny.

    As to Christmas, the little guy got some baby cars and some wood blocks and rattle toy. Oh ya, and some bowls and spoons for wishful thinking I think; and he still has one set of grand parents to go.

    Hi all

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

    Long post ahead. So much has been happening.

    We had a great night at my parents' house on Christmas Eve. Cooper was really good. I was a bit worried as he was sooky the day before at Mark's parents' house. But he was all smiles and having fun playing. He enjoyed opening all his presents. Got some great photos. He didn't want to nap though and took both Mark and I a while to get him to have one. Later in the evening I bathed him and put him to sleep for the night. He was fine. But then he woke around 9.30 pm. He had woken at 10.00 pm grizzling the night before. So very very weird. He usually sleeps from 6.30 pm to 5.00 am. Anyway I took this as a cue to go home. There was no point re-settling him. I was getting tired anyway and had to drive (35 minute drive). He fell asleep in the car and stayed asleep when we got home and I moved him to the cot. Then he slept until 5.00 am. Yay!

    Christmas Day was more present opening and Cooper tasted his first solids wrapping paper!!! Ew! I wasn't quick enough he had chewed on the paper so much it went soggy and I found some in his mouth. Oops! Then we headed out to Mark's sister's for lunch. It was a great day. Cooper was fairly good too. Had a few sooky moments but generally okay. He missed out on one whole nap but didn't get too cranky. He had he very first swim in the pool which he didn't like very much. I guess he's used to warm bath water!

    Then that night Cooper cried out a few times and we found him in weird positions in the cot. But he didn't wake fully until 3.30 am and I had to feed him then. Damn!

    We visited some friends on Boxing Day arvo. Mark stayed until late but I went home to do Cooper's bath and bed. I was so sick of trying to put him to sleep at other people's houses!

    I have noticed that Cooper is very unsettled at night at the moment. I have a few ideas why:

    1. He is too excited by being able to roll and wants to do it all the time.
    2. He is trying to crawl.
    3. He is teething.
    4. All the socialising at Christmas has mucked him up.

    As of Christmas Eve he finally remembered how to roll from tummy to back so now he can go both ways and is constantly wriggling in his cot.

    So now I need to figure out what his "problem" is!!! Last night we went to Mark's parents' house for dinner. I did Cooper's bath and last feed at home and then we went over (they're only about a 3 minute drive away). We forgot Cooper's portacot so we tried to put Cooper to sleep on a bed. He wouldn't have a bar of it. He kept crying. Neither Mark nor I could settle him. I even tried giving him a feed but he wouldn't have it.

    Dinner was then served so we just brought Cooper out to the table with us. He sat on my knee while I ate. He was all happy then. He smiled at everyone and tried to grab my plate and enjoyed banging his hands on the table. He did get a little cranky after a while but that was understandable as he ALWAYS goes to bed between 6.00 pm and 6.30 pm. It was now about 7.30 pm.

    We scoffed down dessert so we could get home as Cooper was getting wriggly and was so tired. He fell asleep in the car and didn't stir when I put him in his cot.

    But then he woke at 10.00 pm crying. He's done this a few times in the past couple of days. I went in and he was rolling around the place. I patted his bum and he went back to sleep. Then he woke crying at 11.00 pm, 11.30 pm and I think 2.00 am. It's all a blur now. Mark settled him as well.

    But then he slept until just after 5.00 am his normal wake up time. I tried just getting him up and changing his nappy instead of doing a feed straight away. He cried a lot while I was changing him but then he seemed very settled back in his cot. But it was shortlived and he only lay quietly for about 10-15 minutes. Still it was something. So I fed him at 5.30 am. I decided to start my day and give Cooper play time. He's now been asleep since about 6.45 am. He is propped up on his side with his foot sticking through the seat belt hole of his sleeping bag!

    Fraser How's the Farex going? Charlie still enjoying it?

    kmh How are your girls? Feeling healthy? Glad to hear Charlotte is enjoying her solids!

    Dustmite How funny that Corban is not interested in solids yet! Oh well I guess just try again in a few weeks.

    hey everyone!

    Fee - that is so strange - Charlie is doing the same thing for now reason - last night it was 10.30pm, 1am and 2.30am - he did it on christmas eve also - he didn't do it christmas night but I attribute that to the couple of glasses of champagne I had! I can't work it out either - someone told me that is a sign that they are ready for solids - but I had to take him off the farex for a while because he got all blocked up and would wake up crying and just wanted to be rocked and patted back to sleep because his tummy hurt - so I am going to try the farex again today but really really runny.

    Kelly - how did you go at the sales? I got three doona covers for $100!!! we went to target to look at the high chair that was 50% off but the pattern on it was hideous - I couldn't bear it. So we bought a mothers choice layback one - sounds like I will need to line up the lemon, salt and tequila for Charlie or something! it's not exactly what I wanted but it will be fine

    Charlie has been saying his first words (did I already tell you guys this?) - I thought it was a fluke at first but now when he's tired or upset he says... 'mum mum mum' - so sweet - except he did say it to the fridge - but still he said Mum first!

    Christmas was hectic - but great - he got so spoilt - lots of toys for when he's a bit older which is good - I can put them away and spring them out in the middle of the year - we got him a jolly jumper and thank god he *loves* it! spins around and bounces and squeals - it's great.

    anyway gotta dash he just woke up and I want to get a walk in before it rains - will be back soon - hope everyone is well and happy

    looking forward to hearing, from Dee, Bubs, Baiza, Cassie, Mads and Cyn and anyone else I have missed out!

    so sick of sliced ham..........

    Em!
