    Hi Everyone

    Well Maria has started swimming lessons again today, she did have them when she was about 6 months old, but she got bronchiolitus and sick from Child care etc that I put them of until now. She seemed to go ok, but the water was a bit too cool, next week it should be a bit warmer. Gee she slept well afterwards.

    Hi!

    Wow new format! May take some getting used to. We were certainly in our comfort zone and chatting about all sorts of private ins and outs in our July group. It will be challenging for me to keep up with everyone's news..how many of us are there now?

    Things are busy for me. I'm well into my second pregnancy, am studying Danish (formerly from Sydney I now live in Copenhagen with my Danish Husband DH hehe - Mik), and we're about to move into our first house in 2 weeks time!

    Everything is going well with Al. He is in day care every week day from 9-3. He has been going in increasing periods of time since he was 15 months old. This is considered very late over this part of the world! Most kids have started by the time they are 9-10 months and parents are back at work full time. Anyway now that he's there, I'm very happy with the decision as he seems to enjoy himself and the interactions that he has there.

    So thats a bit of an intro. Carry on. :-)

    Wow girls ..not sure how we are going to keep up with all the personals now there are so many of us! .How exciting!.

    Kaitlyn only slept 20 mins yesterday at daycare ..arghhh...I just dont thing at 15mths she can survive on that amount of sleep ....mmm. But I know she likes it there as she blow kisses to EVERYONE as we leave, so that makes me happy.

    I am sick today with some kind of Cough / Cold so I am really looking forward to getting back home today. Should be a fairly busy day unfortunately as we have the Big Wig here from the USA.

    I am excited as I sold my first two items on ebay!!! hahaha silly I know ..but the clean up is about to begin!. I am going to sell some stuff we just dont need and make some money we just do hehehe.

    Trace ...I had not replied early to your accident post...man oh man ...I would have done the same as you babe. You just cant put your family at risk . I cant even imagine how it all made you feel .

    Ok ..better run as I am booking DH and I in for a Childrens First Aid course...long overdue so want to get moving!.

    I look forward to getting to know our new extended group

    OOooh hi again everyone. I guess we need to start again now, lol.

    Rae- Oh I'm sorry to hear about poor little Tia's heart, thank goodness she won't need surgery straight away. Still scary though I'm sure. I'm glad that things are going well though, and that she's kicking up a storm in there

    Oooooh, this is tricky trying to remember everyone, please forgive me if I miss anyone out.

    Brooke- Hooray you found us and yep you're in the right spot. Hope everyone else can find us. Awwwwwwwwww at your wedding hun, I say whenever there's bickering around a wedding, elope! Definitely, will save you so much pressure.

    Kate- Good luck with going back to work next week, have you tried Ry on the bottle yet?

    Louise- I hope Maria enjoys her swimming. My son Jonah (19 months) LOVES his swimming classes. We are just about to go back now that the holidays are over.

    Not much going on here. We're off to Sydney on Tuesday (driving up) to see Ben's (DH) family and to see LIttle Britain Live. We got tickets to see it up there so we could take his youngest sister with us, so that was her Chrissy present from us. We'll be away until the 17th, so I'm hoping I will be able to catch up once I get back. I think I wil read and maybe not do personals, lol, I think I'd be here forever and not sure if I could even make a post that long, hehehehehe. Looking forward to seeing some of you girls when I'm up there

    Hi all, I think my posts got lost at the beginning of the huge thread... quickly before I add more later. Those of my July girls (and anyone else if you're really interested) who are wanting to come and see Viv skate. Her times have been changed again! Now its 3.20pm Satruday and 9.30am Sunday morning. Sunday will be the more entertaining. If anyone wants to come I'll email you the details. pls post or email me on [email protected] if you want more details

    Hi everyone. I like this new smaller big group lol. Looking forward to getting to know you all and keeping up with the August chickies too.

    Sorry selfish post....I posted in the BF etc thread about NEd. Ahhhh more stress. I hate that MCHN, she has made me feel like the worse mum in the world for exercising when it is the first time in like 3 years I've done something for myself - literally. Anyway enough about me....waiting for Lucie to wake so i can take Ned to the docs. Definately lots of pressure for more tests to find out what's wrong. My poor little man is fading away. Ahhhh no one tells you how tough motherhood can be sometimes

    Hi Rach. Hope the itti bitti is going well
    Ned was sick before Christmas - UTI and kidney abscess and hospital for IV ABs. No he is losing weight/not wanting to feed. MCHN is a real pain in the backside! We're off to paed Wednesday and having more tests to work out whats wrong. But it's not like he's hungry and can't get the milk from me. I just offered him some formula for the first time ever after the last BF and he wasn't interested at all.
    Makes me think
    a) He isn't starving
    b) He doesn't like formula
    c) it's something else causing weight loss and not my milk
    d) I'll keep on breastfeeding
    e) the midwife can go and eat her bottom for all I care!

    So that's my life at the moment LOL. HOw is Blake going?

    Soph, Blake's fine, growing and gettting even more clever each day. He's still not much of a talker and sometimes uses sign language when he really needs to say something. He's discovering though that socially it's easier to talk so I think he'll pick up on his speech now that playgroup is back.

    As for the itti bitti - it's one of my favs. I'm so sorry it wasn't good for you but happy all the same IYKWIM! he even got pasta sauce on it the other day - bright orange of course - and it came out in the wash. I do have to say, I love my itti bitti!

    Did you know that you don't have to go to your assigned MCHN. I was having issues with mine and was told by the Lactation Consultant who was also a MCHN that I could change. I didn't in the end as it was really only bothering around the time when my dad died so I was super emotional anyway, but it's good to know.

    Kate, wow at going back to work! You're a champion. I'm so glad your M&D are close by and that they'll have the girls. I hope it all goes well for you honey. *hugs* Good luck with the take a break care!

    Tracey! LOL @ Indah taking DH a beer. I think Blake would try to drink it if we asked him! And I'd never be able to tell him to take food to DH. He'd eat it on the way! or run in the opposite direction! What was the story of the accident? I missed it in the other thread. Sorry, being a nosy parker! How was the Red Rooster?

    Bec, I bet you're looking forward to Little Britain now that it's so close. I hope Jonah is good for you in the car. Have you done any long distance travel with him before? Have a great time!

    Oh I feel like the worst mother in the world, Maria walked into the litchen as I was opening the fridge (Fridge top, freezer bottom thing) and the corner od the fridge hit her near her eye, it is not bruising or anything but she cried for ages.
