    Good morning... lovely washing day here... garden supply man has also just delivered 2 cubic meters of garden mulch for our garden so that's got to be dealt with too... DH coming home from work early to help spread it.

    Rory: forgot to say: well done getting a Peg high-chair... saved yourself about $60... can it recline? If so Flynn might be able to start using it soon. They are getting to an age where they prefer to be able to look around. I'm thrilled that my new Emmaljunga has a new function with it's bassinette: you can raise half the base of it so that the baby can sit supported. Niall is turning into a real sticky beak, not happy unless he is privy to all the goings-on around here!

    KL: Hope you don't have too much of a hang-over... nothing worse than looking after a baby when you're not feeling %100.

    IK: ...and speaking of feeling poorly, hope you guys wake up feeling a little better. And yes, I went outside and had a wiff: could smell the fires too. Hope that rain dealt with them. the clouds looked so ominous but there wasn't much too it sadly (here in Eagelmont anyhow).

    On my way to hang the first of about 4 loads...

    ETA: grrrr trying to tidy up the yard for the party on the weekend but the kids keep undoing my work Why am I bothering? I was tidying up out the front and the kids were at the back dragging everything out of the garden shed into the garage to "play cubbies".... sounds cute, not. Now they are fighting... oh well at least that doesn't happen too often... would drive me nuts the sound of yelling, crashing, banging, slamming doors then the inevitable crying from Wade trying to get me involved. Guess there will be more of that (fighting) when Niall is older between him and Wade... we've largely managed to escape it so far with the age gap between Verity and Wade. The trick is to not get involved until you really have to... if they realise it gets your attention immediately they won't hesitate to do it more often. I guess Verity is at the end of her tether after 3 weeks with him.

    Anyhow what I would really love is to actually be productive and DO something without the kids generating twice as much work for me in some other part of the place. The equation goes like this: I spend half an hour focused on a task somewhere... while they make a mess or break something somewhere else requiring the expenditure of one hour to fix or clean it.... that's how it goes. I can usually deal with it but the pressure of having the place tidy for this party is making it more frustrating. So as per usual I end up not attempting to do anything instead of directly supervising them... during which of COURSE they are angelic... they end up sitting quietly playing peacefully together... meaning i think to myself: "Ok they are settled now... i'll just go and do this job".... naturally 10 minutes later they have either created a huge mess doing something inappropriate or immediately start fighting or raid the 'fridge. So that's why I am here... typing where I can see them.... wishing I could simply do some housework.

    A glorious public holiday monday in Perth. great weather for putting out the washing and get some jobs around the house done. DH and I are off on a picnic in a little while which should be great, nice to take Tori out doors and get soem fresh air.
    We have finally moved Tori into her cot for her night time sleeps, she did really well the first night, and last night she woke up 4 times, but was easy enough to resettle with a quick wrap and her dummy. She has been incredibly grumpy the last few day and we think that she might be in the process of getting a tooth because she is chewing on her hand (but always the same spot in her mouth) and drooling like nothing else- oh well if it is a tooth, it had to happen sooner or later.

    Amanda- Thinking of you and Kailen today, hope everything goes fine.

    Evening all - hope we all had a nice day and that those in Melbourne enjoyed the sunshine!

    Amanda I do hope your little boy is ok - do thell us ASAP how he is doing

    Enigma, I remember the first time I left Flynn with my mum I was real scared - I was worried she'd drop him or not support his head properly. Mad really - she did family day care for 12 years and studied childcare!!

    Ali, apparently bubs go through a drooling patch around about now, due to the fact that they are developing saliva for the first time and don't know how to swallow it. That said, a mate's boy had his forst tooth at 15 days so it can happen any time....

    Bath, are you still up for a Melbourne catch up next week? Any day except Wednesday suits me.

    Nenny, awful about your SIL's mum - my ma is about that age, only 59 - it would be hard to think of her going so young....

    My day was pretty cruisy - woke up and after a bit of work and (additive!!) ebaying in the morning I headed out with a schoolfriend to visit a mutual schoolfriend who is "confined", awaiting birth of her second child. Poor love is literally confined - she has pelvic instability and in a real bad way (wheelchair, crutches, etc). She is 1 week overdue and has been dreading being induced like last time, but the good news is her waters broke and had a show today, though she doesn't believe it and all arvo kept talking it down, not wanting to get her hopes up. Then as we left, she had a contraction that was strong enough that she couldn't talk and had to hold her breath. Some how I reckon she will be having her but without induction. Fingers crossed!!

    So our arvo was spent out in the sunshine under a wisteria vine eating scones my friend's DH made (yes! really!) while Flynn slept in his pram for 3 hours and my friend's daughter went nappy-less on the grass. Bliss! Then came home and made a yummy spaghetti marinara and had a nice bottle of wine with DH. Somehow it all seems too good to be true! That said, I have been a pessimist all my life and think I have wrecked happy times in the past but expecting the worst, so I think I'll just shut up and enjoy it.

    ciao bellas

    Sorry not really up for personals right now so I'll apoligise in advance. Well Kailen was the first to have his op this morning at 8:30am, we didn't hear from anyone until DH at 10:45am went to ask how he was. They told him that his breathing was rapid and that he didn't come out of the anethesic well and they were going to monitor him for a while longer. He got back to his room at about 12pm and had another snooze, but he still wasn't 100% soo to cut along story short he's still in hospital and I'm sitting here worring myself sick until I can go back to him tomrrow at about 8am. They have said that he got what would happen to an asthmatic, when he sleeps his oxygen levels also drop and he had a fever before we left as well. I don't think I'm been very coherent so will go and get some sleep hopefully.

    hugs xoxo

    Hi everyone,

    just wanted to post that we come home today. Geez another new thread and i didnt even catch up properly on the last one!! will try catching up a bit tomorrow.
    I will also post some pics tomorrow of the christening etc. Nixon was just the cutiest best little boy ever yesterday and he didnt cry all day.
    Unfortunatley he is a little sick now, thinking just a cold but going to dr tomorrow just to check. My sisters baby just got conjunctavitis today so hoping he doesnt catch it.
    mostly unpacked but we didnt bring most of the stuff Nixon was given as my parents are driving down in 2 weeks for a wedding and will bring them down then.
    Amanada- I hope Kailen improves tonight and u can get yourself some rest knowing he is in the best place to recover. Must be tough though so I am thinking of you and your little boy tonight.
    Candy- love your ring! looks great on those sexy hands of yours too!
    did anyone from melb meet up yet?
    oh cool pic of Aleise and cody! glad u guys got to meet up!

    i have a busy week ahead with a surprise party for dh on friday night (30th) and sunday is our wedding annaversary and i havent got him anything yet for either!

    Amanda - Still thinking of you and Kailen! I was remembering today how I got the measles at about 3 months of age or sometime really young, and my mum says it was the worst she'd ever been about me and I'm appreciating her worry so much more now. Kids will never appreciate it till they're older, we know that! Anyway, he might make a protracted recovery from this op, but he will make a recovery and you can tell us all about it
    Rory - I LOVE blissful days! Yep, just soak it in and don't worry about the next dodgy corner. I used to be a bit like that but then I realised that the good moments weren't being marked enough to distinguish them from the darker moments. And when I started to think like that I could see a lot more light than dark, so it was a good attitude change. I shed that pessimism a long time ago (during my undergrad when I started to take an interest in my studies and no longer had to worry about failing subjects cos I was enjoying school too much to fail!). I'm rambling...
    Had dinner tonight with my dad at his place. I think he's feeling the loneliness now of my mum living in the country. Also, the closer the house gets to being saleable I think he realises the closer he is to being far away from Oscar and me. His depression seems to be lifting cos he is more cheerful to be around again.
    My ribcage hurts and so does the top of my throat, from the coughing, but the cough isn't as bad now (just persistent, but not as bad). Oscar seems to be breathing a bit easier now, too. We went out to the paddocks today and that was nice in the sunshine.
    Well, gonna get this sleeping boy to bed...last night it took two hours to get him to sleep, but when he went it was for a few hours, at least! I barely remember his middle of the night feed, so that's a sign of a restful sleep - the light was still on when he got hungry again...I had drifted off...
    I'm free next week for a catch up, or this Friday. Bath, are you still coming up my way for the Thomas run?
    Good night all!

    Amanda - i hope all is well , keep us updated, thinking of you

    Nickers- welcome back ! I know what you mean about the amount ofposts , im still trying to catch up after my time off bb

    Aurora- hahah thats so funny , your mum has so much experience with kids and you were worried she wouldnt support baby's head properly. I completely understand you because thats how I am. And if anyone else is changing her nappy i remind them that Aneta likes to have her feet kissed when her socks are off , and that the nappy shouldnt be too tight etc etc... *sigh* I hope our kids will have more faith in us when we are grandparents

    Hello!

    Well am I the first to reply today??? (Tuesday)

    Is everyone alseep or something!!

    Amanda: Sorry to hear about Kalien's slow recovery. The idiots should have checked he didn't have a fever before the operation. Hope he's better now. Thinking of you darls!

    IK: Hope you're feeling better now. I've decided to buy the smaller Aldi nappies again as the crawler ones were too bulky. Am using Cosifits (from chemist) until Fam Allowance payday tomorrow.

    Enigma: Love the pic of Aneta on your ticker - she's such a cutie. Thought about entering her in baby photo compettions and such? I'm going to try to get Aleise into that. Apparently a 20min commercial shoot can pay $4000 so that would come in handy for her school fees down the track. What is happening about you and hubby living here? If you'd mentioned it earlier I missed that post.

    Got an email from Tanya (Tulip) yesterday. She's had some probs with Lucas settling down since he's had reflux. She said he's on Zantac now and it makes a difference and she can actually get some sleep. She said she hasn't had much time to write any posts but has been following the thread. let's hope she posts soon!

    Update: Well yesterday we had 3 lots of visitors and normally we don't get any! :eek:
    Matt's parents came for a quickie lunch - BLT's and bacon and salad for me. Then we had one set of friends from Tsv call in then the 2nd set too - with their 3 kids! We had a full house yesterday. Scored a voucher at a beauty salon for $50 and A Fisher Price learning Puppy for Aleise. Although she isn't 6 months yet she loves it already and is trying to chew its ears off!

    Another fine day in Brisvegas today - took the pooch for a morning walk (not likel me to get up before 8.30am!!) and did some housework. Sadly I've got more to do so I must dash.

    Take care all and *hugs*.

    Good one, Neeny, for the early rising! Sounds nice. Lovely day in Melb, too. Pity my head feels like someone hit it with a rock - all that coughing is making me feel concussed! But I'm at the phlegmy end of things, so maybe I'll feel better by the end of the day. I hate being sick. I haven't been like this for quite some time and it makes me feel quite pathetic.
    I have to take issue with what you said about paeds and nurses - Dee's paed reckons Lachlan would be better off crying his head off alone at the other end of the house, remember? Somehow I don't think Dee (Heaven), as a nurse, would recommend that! In fact, many health professionals would condemn that advice. Anyway, there are often times when a specialist can miss the mark completely and it means little that they are a 'specialist', and nurses CAN know more than a paed from time to time cos they see the babies more than a paed does (paed only hears from parents, can take vital stats and see what the child looks like at the time of the appointment, but the paed doesn't see the child frequently cos it would cost too much!). I would give a nurse's opinion a hell of a lot of weight because they see a lot of the everydayness that specialists can't by the very nature of their work (back to back appointments etc). Not only that, but every child is different - a paed may recommend something for a child that a nurse recommends against for another child because they are not presenting the same. I don't see how solids would help a child more than milk in a case of reflux anyway - if one's coming up, then won't the other??
    People like paeds really make it their business to take the instinct out of child care. Where would they be if more people were guided by their instinct rather than making appointments at their rooms? in another specialty area, I'm tipping!
    Anyway, I went to the local recyled kids stuff shop and bought some cute stuff for my boy. Nothing in blue, I might add! There's heaps of blue boys' gear there, but there was enough green and yellow in interesting shades to keep me happy.
    DP is home today with a bad back. In bed. Lucky him. I'd love to have been able to stay in bed all last week whilst sick. I'd be better now. But Oscar can't tend to himself, so I don't get to stay in bed. Don't know where MIL is but it would have been handy to have her help last week when I was sicker. My mum wanted to help and she did, actually, as much as she could after getting back from NZ and organising herself to get back to the country for the school term. Yep, I'm having a go at MIL. I have no idea where she has been and I suppose you could say I'm too proud to ask DP about it anymore. She's a lovely lady, but bloody nora, she could take some time out of her busy schedule for her grandson, couldn't she? Spose not. Whinge!
    Rory - forgot to say last night, poor friend of your friend!! I feel her pain! I thought I might have to take to a wheelchair - I had crutches for a while, and that was even after the foot injury healed. Hell, I'm still having issues with it cos I can't ride my horse yet! They say it goes away after birth, but I had a feeling that it might rear its ugly head again. I just have to do some exercises to condition it all back to as close to normal as possible. The physio reckons the hormones are still kicking around somewhere, too.
    Well, I'm going to continue feeling sorry for myself offline.
    Have a good day all!

    Howdy everyone!!

    Im back from Perth now, reckon i brought the warm weather back with me as its raining in perth today... Apparetnly its meant to be 30 here tomorrow!!

    Anneliese is getting so big, i talked to a couple of mums recently that were in the hospital when Anneliese was born, and Anneliese is at least 1/2 a kilo bigger than any of them, and they were all about the sam size at birth. THAT made my day, i must be doing somethign right

    Im all up for a meet up, im available most days, just need notice so i can organise to drop DH at work (if he's working that day).

    Whats something i saw about Thomas the tank?? My sons are train addicts, they would love something like that...

    Anyone in here going to Kelly's showbag filler day on Sunday?? Me and Anneliese are, going to stick DH with the boys and have a fun day... meet up with some of the melb girls.

    Well, i had a missive weekend, went out saturday night, nightlcubbing with my sister, and realised im getting too old for that sort of thing now... Which is AWFUL, as im only 22... Got home at 4am, pretty ****ed... GOt up at 7, went out for the day to a local park, had a sausage sizzle.. Had a lot of fun, considering mum and dad were at each others necks (very long story) came home, packed, went to church, came home, had dinner, then off the airport. My flight left at 10.30pm, and i wasnt very happy with QANTAS... they normally call for all people with children to board first, to gett settled before the madness of everyone else boarding... but instead i had to struggle with 3 kids and 4 carry on bags (and 2 teddies) with the rush of people. And it was a fully booked flight. Luckily 2 woman helped me get the boys on board (they also helped me get them off board later on) The boys didnt fall asleep until 1 hour before landing, so they were dead to the world when we got into melb airport at 4am (local time) I slept all day yesterday, as i didnt get any sleep on board, Anneliese woke up for a feed when the boys fell asleep. The boys are a bit out of it today, woke up at 11am, and i let them out to play before putting them back to bed at 1.30pm. And Anneliese is asleep in her bouncer atm (its a vibrating one, she loves it!!) So i get 5 mins to myself. *sigh*

    Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY WADE!!! Its my dads birthday today too... I really should call him

    Love'n'hugs, Simone xx

    Hi all, well we're all home from the hospital today. They had to xray Kailens chest last night, it came back inconculsive, but they started him on antibiotics so that was good. He also spiked his fever at 1am this morning at 39.6 so not happy about that. When we got there at 7 he ate about two mouthfuls of rice bubbles and then that was it, his fever came back at 38.5 but they gave him some more panadol and got some antibiotics for us to take home and we left the hospital at about 11. Since being home he's been fine, and outside with his brothers, so he must be on the mend.

    Had a quick read of all the post so will try and remember some stuff.

    Happy birthday Wade.

    Thank you everyone that wished us well and had us in their prayers, I'm sure it helped him in his recovery.

    Sorry but that's all I can remember for now.

    hugs xoxo
