    Megan sounds like the devil baby is going around - your symptoms are a lot like mine. Then they just suddenly left so don't give up hope yet! Hope you get to lose your grumpy face soon. I think ours is Breville too and we have a recipe book called, funnily enough, 'the slow cooker recipe book'. You can do stews, soups, casseroles, terrines, steamed puddings, cakes (never tried those), pot roasts, lasagne, preserves - list is endless. And you have to love one pot dishes that don't leave you with a mountain of washing up!
    While we're on the topic of cooking and being busy, I'll put plug in for the dolmio's pasta bakes - you don't even have to cook the pasta first, just chuck it all in and bung it in the oven. I like to substitute some sort of meat for part of the pasta and cook it at a lower temp so the flavour goes through everything and you can forget it about it for a couple of hours. Oh, and whack some pesto on top of chicken, add some vegies on top and wrap it all in a foil parcel to throw in the oven, that's one of my favourites for saving time and energy. I'm really going on aren't I? LOL I do love food.

    Off to have the Magnum my loverly hubby bought home.

    Hi all,

    Raels, I think that is just a bloke thing. It is probably something Nathan would do as well. it's like how at our house cleaning the kitchen for Nathan consists of just filling the dishwasher.

    Tracey, glad the new job is wrking about better. So many things have changed I'm finding my job way less enjoyable than I remember it. Well i guess its just more motivation for me to save up money so we can build and then I can have another bub and be a sahm. I miss my last boss.

    megan just check for the 666 birthmark under the hair. lol
    I do make sure I get some time to myself, more often than not this is sleeping time lol but sometimes having hardley seen xavier all week I want to spend heaps of time with him and yet I think MIL is forgetting that even though she hasn't seem him all week and wants to say hi and play neither have I. He went to sleep about 15 mins after getting home tonight, so I plan to actually assist him to wake up soon and have some play time so he might sleep better overnight. He was so tired today that I couldn't even give him any farex.

    Nicki, if your out there reading, after talking to you on here for more than 12 months and never actually having met you, I met your mum today!! When I droped xavier off at cc this morning, after working out who I was she told me she was your mum. Lovley lady.

    Well I hope everyone is well,

    Hey V and Tracey have you heard from Kristy? do you chat to her on MSN anymore how is she and her family?

    Well I'm buggered and I'm about to let Xavier wake up, it's not something I would normally do but he is getting into some bad sleeping habits because he's not sleeping during the day, ooo I dont have to wake him he's just woken himself

    Bye

    I have just lost my post twice in a row!!!

    Well after reading through all the posts I missed I have forgotten who said what so sorry for no names!

    Baby Bath, we have mainly showered Noah since birth and since about 1month I have been bathing him in the big bath with me if we have bathed him. Just before christmas I thought I might give him a bath in the baby bath on the dining table and he kicked the water absolutely everywhere, all over the table and floor it was pretty funny and he had a great time but I don't think I'll be doing that again! I had a bath with him a few days ago and he really loved it so I might have to bath him more!

    Holidays, lastminutedeals and wotif.com are great websites to get cheap holidays on we booked our last anniversary on there and wegot our room for less than a third of the usual amount.

    Car seats, We turned both of Noah's carseats around a few weeks ago when we got back from NZ ours say to turn them around at 8kg. After seeing that video I will have a look at the booklet that came with them and see how long you can have them rear facing and I might put them back if it says you can still have them rear facing but if it says you have to have it forward facing from 8kg then I'll just leave it!

    Well Noah had his 6month needles today and they weighed and measured him etc and he is 8.6kg and 68cm long!

    Well catch up again soon

    Hope all those cheeky little bubbas are going great.

    Hi girls,

    well I'm glad it's not just my man!!!

    Tracey - great to hear everything is working out well with your job.

    Em - thanks! Lexxen did have a good day. We didn't do much though, as we are having a big party for him this Saturday.

    Sacha - my little Olimoo had a bit of a rough day. He didn't get a temp like after the 2 and 4 month needles but he was very unsettled and grizzly. Poor thing, I'm glad it will be another 6 months before we all have to take our bubs to get stabbed again! Oh and yum, a magmun! I love those things....

    Megan - lol at your little devil.

    Nicky - sorry to hear about your cousin and I hope things improve for you.

    I gave Oliver a rusk today. I bought the Belamys organic ones. They are actually called 'Toothypegs' which I thought was cute! He just loved it. I had forgotten all about them until someone on here mentioned them the other day.

    Well I had heaps to say but now I've forgotten it all cause I'm so tired. I'm sure I'll remember when I get into bed.

    Night all.

    Raels. xo

    Jas - It is cute hey? Oliver was so excited when I gave it to him! He kept making these little grunting noises everytime he put it in his mouth.

    A quick question about solids. What is everyone feeding there bubs now and how many times a day? Oliver is still having his rice cereal at breakfast and vegies for dinner. I can't remember what I did with Lexxen! And is anyone giving meat yet?

    Raels - i am giving cereal for breakfast, fruit for lunch (although the health nurse said that wasn't enough for lunch but i think it is for now!) and vegies for dinner. Lucas had his first meat last night....mince ground up in the blender with vegies, it went down a treat!

    V & InLove – Happy half birthday to Avaleigh & Sara. We’re going to have half a cake tonight to celebrate !

    Megan – PMSL at the vision of you bathing the real estate guy. He’s probably glad you settled for just bathing Lucas!. Who I hope is having a happier day today for you.

    Nicky – that’s terribly sad news about your cousin. Big hugs for you & getting through the week.

    Raels – thanks for asking the question about how often for solids, it’s one of my questions too. We’ve just started on farex, (although we wear it rather than swallow it!), but I’m a bit overwhelmed with the whole food thing. I’d like a pause button so I could just collect my thoughts on the whole matter.

    Yum for all the talk about slow cookers. Makes me want to make a casserole right now.

    Very excited about today, we’re off to the health nurse to get Liam weighed & measured.

    OMG – just hearing the news about Heath Ledger!

    Nicky, sorry to hear you've had a sad time It's not silly to feel on the outer, sometimes you just have your own little bubble for a while but just remember you can share the down times with us too

    Raels, Autie has about two tablespoons of cereal with fruit at breakfast, two big ice cubes of veges at lunch and three at dinner with a little cereal mixed in. During the day she might also chew on melon or mango in her mesh bag feeder, or have a rusk for a bit. Yesterday i gave her steak in it and that was her first meat but it was only juice really. I will be starting to introduce meat over the next couple of weeks.

    Oh and re: the solids, I forgot to add that we started early at 5months because she was quite obviously needing to. So those amounts are for about 6 or 7 weeks in.

    Thanks guys.... this heath ledger thing makes everything so much worse today...
    Cousin took his own life last week, and I found out at the same time this morning as I did last weds about cousin.

    I don't have anything nice to say about either situation. It sucks that something so shocking can take away all respect etc.

    HI, all.
    I just popped on hear to post a qustion and found aut about Heath on my home page. It was a shock, Just like steve irwin's death.

    No what I wated to ask was... Kaetlyn has been on rice cereal since sunday. she is copeing quite well with it. She is now up to about 1/2-3/4 of a tabel spoon, once a day. I cant find anywhere when and how much I should be increasing it. Should I start giving the same amount at lunch and dinner as well, or start on veges also. They are in the freezer ready to go and be defrosted.
    Thanks everyone

    Sacha- have to get a slow cooker...cant believe it makes all that stuff!! Just curious, how many milk feeds are you doing with three meals and do you do them before/after meals?

    Nicky - hope things start to look up for you....sometimes it seems that there is no light at the end of the tunnel but i am sure little Lachlan brightens your days!

    Well Lucas is back to being a happy critter today thank god!! I think he might have had some belly issues yesterday he has been pushing out tiny pebbles for days!

    Blueflower - my MHN said once they hit 6 months you can go full pelt ahead with food so I'd be starting on vegies and even meat soon!! I pretty much went straight into 2 meals a day...cereal and vegies, then the next week added fruit for lunch as well!!
