    Hi All
    Been MIA for the past week, have ben on a little holiday with the inlaws. All is good. Had a nice time away in the sand, but no sun , went swimming heaps though.

    Will come back and skim through the posts later. Am completly buggered.
    Kaetlyn is 6 months tomorrow, so MIL is getting her high chair out of layby as a 1/2 birthday present and will start solids tomorrow. Also, We put Kaetlyns chair facing forards in the car today, halfway on our trip home, she was trying to sit herself up anyway when it was rear facing.

    Wow I just cant keep up!!

    Em- great news about Tom eating! Exciting and way to go Tom!!

    Tracey and Mel - those boys of yours must be so adorable with their little (or maybe big) rolls! Chubby babys are so cute (well all babys are but ykwim).

    Jessikah - enjoy your games night. Sounds like fun!

    Raels - happy birthday to Lexxen for Sunday and your chocolate vodka sounds divine!

    Bec - enjoy your weekend off with Xavier - you deserve the break you are a super mum working full time.

    Tracey - great news about your work hours. How perfect. I am going back to work part time in April (5 days per fortnight) and some days I cant wait to get back and others I just cant think of anything worse. But in reality I think it will be a good thing as it will give me a bit of balance and I dont feel like i have that at the moment.

    Dani - poor OScar with his poos. I hope he is feeling much better now. Poor babe having to have a Dr do that to him.

    Happy 6 month Noah.

    Sacha - I had another look at Auties photos and she is adorable. I just love her hair. Charlottes hair is starting to grow and I cant wait until it is a bit longer although I hope she hasnt inherited my curly hair). Its funny as both the boys were born with much more hair that her and at the same age had more as well.

    Hello to everyone else and your beautiful babes!

    Me - DH is away again but I say that nearly every time I am on here cuase he is never home. But I have felt that I have coped a bit better this time./ I have tried to just take it hour by hour rather than looking too far ahead - I have tried not to think OMG it is still 8 hours until the kids will be in bed for the night or OMG I am so tied and how am I going to face the day (which at times is rather overwhelming LOL) and I have tried to focus on the now and take each moment/hour as it comes and it seems to be helping. Dont get my wrong I still have my moments and I feel so guilty about them but things are OK.

    We are trying to work out of we are going to get a nanny for when I am back at work (part time) but I am just not sure. There are pros and cons to having a nanny and pros and cons for childcare. I like the idea of being able to leave the house in the morning and not have to get everyone fed, dressed and into the car for childcare but at least at childcare it is an open environment as in you pretty much know what is going on - you dont in your own home. Does any one have any experience or ideas about nannys. Someone told me it is best to advertise yourself rather that through an agency but I dont know.


    Well thats it from me for now - the couch is calling my name!!
    Take care everyone

    Yay on your open water dive V. My DH used to teach scuba diving in QLD (many years ago) and often tells me I should get into it but I just havent got around to doing anything about it yet.

    BTW - thanks for the exercises.

    Oh Jem, you are too kind - thank you. Her hair is actually causing problems now it is getting in her eyes and irritating her but i am loathe to cut it! I bought her two headbands today instead so now she looks like a 70s tennis player or Olivia Newton John in 'Let's Get Physical'. I'm glad you are coping ok with DH being away, I sympathise, even though I don't have the workload you do! I think Autie is just beginning to be affected by her dad's coming and going - she sure has been a ratbag lately. LOL As someone who has worked in childcare for 15 years, I would have to go for a nanny! Not that you don't get great Early Childhood teachers but you just can't get the same one on one attention. Sure, the social interaction is great, but you can get that at a playgroup. I would probably go through an agency if I didn't know someone personally, just because you know they have been properly checked out, and I would also have them come a few times while still there to see if you get a good vibe from them and how your kids respond will give you clues too, if you stay in the background a bit. If you're paranoid (and I probably would be! LOL) you can get those little cameras hidden in things to keep an eye on what's going on for a while. Let us know what you decide.

    Sacha - I bet Autie looks adorable with her headband on - you will have to take a photo.

    Thanks heaps for your advice on nannys/childcare. I am leaning towards going through an agency as well for the reasons you mentioned and thought we could have the person start before I go back to work so I can be at home with everyone to see how she/he fits in with the kids. Nanny SA has just sent me a heaps of info so I am reading through that and will have to make a decision really soon. Worse case scenario if I am not organised in time or we dont find someone by the time I go back to work I know Charlotte will be able to get into childcare (same place as the boys) which we can use as a short term thing until the nanny is sorted. Thanks again

    Oh what a dope! I knew that would happen - every week i'm like James use the idol!!

    If you guys want a laugh, go to the Punching Bag room forum and read the one by Divvy titled "how to embarass your mother". It is the funniest thing i have ever read.

    Em, just had a look at that post, it's a classic. I would have died if it were me !!!

    Jem, I can't believe what an idot that James is. What a tool not using one of the idols, I bet he would be kicking himself now. I have thought about going back to work for the same reasons, but I doubt my work would allow be to go back like that. I guess I won't know until I talk to them about it. I rang last week to talk to them about applying for an extension on my maternity leave, and I still haven't heard back. I guess asking if I could come back a couple of days a week, can't do any harm.

    Well, it's just be and the boy tonight. Charlize is staying at my parents tonight as her cousin is up from the country and they adore each other. And DH is on night shift, so my narchos are in the oven, baking away nicely and I'm able to sit down for more than a couple of minutes as Jack is in his jumper, squeeling away merrily.

    Hope everyone has a great night. It's our anniversay tomorrow, and I'm being sent shopping to choose a present while DH stays home and helps to install our t.v and speakers. I'm thinking a new watch as my old one, has a cracked face, or maybe a nice ring or a pair of ear-rings, or maybe I could go all three, just jokin I would be divorced before the day in out . But looking forward to tomorrow nights dinner at the casino, it's wonderful food, and I can't wait to have a couple of drinks with DH like the good old times.

    BTW, how much EBM does everyones bubs drink from a bottle in one hit? Just want to make sure I have enough expressed before our outing. Thanks

    Take care all.

    Ohhh I miss Survivor. We don't get normal channels atm, only austar

    Em, thanks for the giggle. I personally, would have been mortified - don't think I couldve handled it so calmly. LOL

    Cute ticker Mel. How are the studies going? BTW I would go for the jewellery - you can justify a new watch any old time Sorry can't help with the EBM, I don't have a life so she never has it! I'm jealous of your dinner, we haven't been out since Autie was born. Maybe it's time to hit up nani and gramps...

    Happy 6months Kaetlyn. How'd the solids go?

    Has anyone ever been on a good beachy type holiday where babies are welcome and it's really inexpensive? We're thinking of a short 3 day break somewhere so we don't want to pay a lot for airfares or accommodation just for that length of time.

    Hope everyone else is doing well, haven't heard from so many people lately.

    Hey Sacha, it has been quiet in here lately. I remember when we were a pregnancy group, and if you were out for a day, you would have about 3 pages to catch up on, lol. We are going away for 2 nights up the sunshine coast in march at a family resort. Best of all, it only cost us $50. Have you heard of TrendWest before? It's now called Whyndam or something like that. Anyway, they make you sit through some, big selling siminar trying to convience you to buy into it all, but at the end you just say 'no thanks' and you get to choose from a group of free gifts, one being a holiday. All it costs in $50 for admin fees. There is a few conditions but if your pretty flexible with when you can go, it's great. PM if you want their number to ring to attend one of the siminars .

    Thanks about the nice comment about the pic, I love that shot.

    Hi all,

    Raels, happy Birthday lexxen, wow 9 I bet it seemed so far away when he was born. now he's on the downhill run to teenager!!
    Glad to hear things are improving for you at home.

    Tracey wow at Zyon, Xavier is about 7.8kg's now. Have you turned his car seat around yet??

    Em, Yay tom is eating!! I know what you mean when you just have to share with someone.

    Happy 6 months Kaetlyn, how does she like facing forward? Xavier has een trying to sit up in his car seat for a while now. Once they are over the 8kg's is that a good indication they are ok facing forward?

    jemima, I haven't got a clue about nanny's but we are enjoying childcare. I guess the good thing is that if Xavier sleeps in I can leave him in his pjs and they will change him for me if I ask, but bit harder to do that with older kids.

    Mel, Xavier will happily drink anywhere from 125ml to 200ml. 200 is usually his max and more often he does this at night. at cc I supply them with about 150ml per bottle.

    Ah, well there is another weekend gone. We tried Avocado mixed in with the farex this weekend and he seems to be enjoying it, didn't complain anyway. He is gassy though, but I think that's because he is all snotty still and swollowing more air. We will do just the farex mixed with avocado for a few more days then we might try some fruit mixed in with it. Well gotta cut this short, lots to do before I go to bed. This is the worst thing about returning to work that You are constantly organising things. You can't really let anything go until the next day because you get stuck so far behind and you end up busiting your a$$ the next day.

    See ya's
