    Happy belated 6 mths Anneliese and Simone congrats on getting to 6 mths of bf you have given her a great start and should be proud of yourself.

    Bath thanks for the ideas for the zucchinni (sp) we had corned silverside with roast potatoes, sweet potatoes, zucchinni and corn on the cob and beans it was really nice.

    IK, Jess, Mel and Rory I hope that you are alright with the fires and all and IK and Mel I hope that both your partners are safe and that everyone down in Melbourne are in my thoughts.

    Well Cody has been a grumpy boy today and I don't know what's wrong, he's tired but doesn't want to sleep. I have a sore throat and am hoping I haven't passed it on to him, will just wait and see how he goes.

    Dee would love to catch up with you just let me know when and where.



    Also on Stephen King I don't mind reading him but I much prefer Dean Koonz. Ah well better go for now.

    hugs xoxo

    Mosquito nets: thanks for your advice ladies – I keep the fan on her while she is in there so hopefully it will not get too hot.

    Baths – I know the thing your talking about, I would be scared I would forget, also not 100% sure of what is in them.. (I know, I’m a paranoid – first time mum!)

    Simone – good for you darling (re: bf/ff) you have given her a GREAT start and you know your baby and what she needs.

    Mel – ohhh.. that is so nice, a MIL and a pool only 5 mins away! I’m totally jealous!

    Nic – awww.. Nixon is soooooooo cute! Yeah for no more expressing.. I have to say, I HATE expressing… as if we don’t have enough to do each day.

    Jess – hope Patrick’s weight was good!

    Amanda – hope Cody feels better – nothing worst is there!!!

    US: I’m off to our client Xmas Party! Prior to leaving work I was the account manager for Qantas, so tonight my company is taking them out on a cruise through Sydney Harbor in a private boat – so champagne for me... Ally is staying home with Dad and some frozen milk! This will be my very first outing without Ally, so I’m a little nervous, also the fact that it is a work function I’m even more nervous.. and a boat… what if Ally needs me.. I can’t very well just jump off and go home??? Deep breaths, deep breaths….I’m sure she will be all right, it is me I’m worried about.. off to go hug her some more!

    LOL CeeCee yes you know she'll be just fine The first outing is the hardest... but it's really good to get a few outings in before they hit the REALLY clingy stage. I know we didn't go out much when Wade was a baby and now he is soooooo clingy! On the other hand we went out fairly frequently when Verity was a baby and she adjusted really well.... but it also comes down to personalities. I suspect Niall is going to be ok about us going out every so often. How does Ally take to the bottle? Sorry i can't recall how much you use it. Niall has become a real expert ever since I've given him the EBM that's about to expire...oh! and we had a blackout this morning!!! The first thing I thought of was my EBM... but lucklily it came back on after 20 mins... and I didn't open the freezer door so it shgould be ok... got turkey in there too!

    Amanda: I looove Dean Koontz too!!! I've read almost everything he has written and keep an eye out for hardcovers in second hand bookshops. I'd say one of the best/scariest is Dark rivers of the Heart. I also thought the black humour in The Face was very good

    Simone and Nic: Yes! congratulations for getting to 6 months BFing It's a bit trickier in summer isn't it... supply can kinda be up and down as your own body can become dehydrated more easily than in the cooler months and even holding them to feed in hot sticky conditions is challenging. I'm hoping to reach 9 months... but Niall is a real biter and I have to admit going through a bit of a rough patch ATM... hopefully he will ease up like the others did soon!

    Just trying to finish the last of the Chrissy cards... Wade seems to dislike me doing them... keeps bumping/shaking the table that I'm doing them on... as soon as I get up and do something else he's ok... but a bit like me sitting at the 'pute he can't stand my attention being so focused on something other than him! Bring on Kinder next year!

    back later girls...

    ETA: we posted at the same time Jess... oooh did the MCHN give you grief about that? Is he happy enough?

    Sorry to hear that jess...

    Bath - is Wade going to 3yo kinder?? As far as i know, Xander has to wait until 2008 to go to 4yo kinder over here, because he was born after the cut off date... Xander's born july 1, so a couple of months older than wade...

    yep... he's been given a place at a good local council 3 yo kinder group starts Feb 2007.
    A few of the kids from his play group will be going so it won't be too foreign for him.

    Hello girls! Thanks for worrying about me with the fires, but the ones at Glenroy must have been little grassfires (they have em every year - the MFB puts em out before they get a chance to touch any houses.

    Happy 6m Annelise - Flynnie reaches the 6m mark today. I had a MCHN appt today too, Jess, but the verdict was better than poor Pat's. What did the nurse recommend you do?

    Bath, I am going to try doing cards today - been putting them off for ages, now DH is starting to get worried they won't go out (he is busy with masters so it's only fair I do them!)

    Ceecee, Ally will be fine, she is with dad, has milk, will fly. You'll see!

    better go - gotta menu plan (still haven't done it yet........!)

    Afternoon girls - been to swimming this morning. I am a proud mum today! Chelsea dived to the bottom of the pool (the shallow end) to get the ring they throw in. This has been a sore point with her and she usually cries and gets all upset telling her teacher she can' do it. Well today she did it - yeah!!! Teacher said she was so very proud of how well she did today. I had to go to the Warehouse today so I let her choose a treat for her achievement - she chose a $2.50 bubble blowing thing!

    Nic - sounds like you had a great day and much better being inside. Go Nixon - rolling everywhere. Glad to hear nappy rash is clearing up to.

    Amanda - love Dean Koontz too! Also James Patterson. Sounds like a delicious dinner, corned silverside is one of my comfort foods - with heaps of mash! Hope your throat gets better and Cody gets out of his 'cranky pants' LOL!!

    Jess - does the MCHN think there is any concern about Pat's weight? Glad its cooler there for you.

    Simone - I've lost stuff to and its usually when I type lots! Typical! Have a fun day and have fun putting the bunks together.

    Bath - I heard the Ivanhoe lights get turned on tonight - they are so beautiful. We went in 2002 when I was heavily pregnant with Chelsea and haven't been back since. Do you guys all go? Xmas cards - you just reminded me to get moving sending mine out.

    CC - have a wonderful night tonight. DH will be fine, I know my DH loves it when I go out as he can do things "his way" without me telling him what to do! He always loves spending 1 on 1 time with the girls. Ally will love it too. Don't drink too much champers on the boat LOL!!!

    Got girlfriends coming for dinner tonight, they are old work colleagues. We get toghether one a month so our xmas dinner tonight. We always get takeaway and tonight is Thai (my favourite). Just tidying up and putting away shopping. DH just called and he may have to stay another night! He is escorting Steve Bracks and the Police Minister around Whitfield today (fun, fun, fun!!!). He said its so much cooler there but the fires have burnt out so much land. Chelsea is really missing him (so am I) and spoke to him on the phone, she said 'are you coming home tomorrow Dad?" and "I miss you", she is so sweet. I suppose one more day without him won't make much difference.

    Hope everyone has a great day and I'll pop back later!

    Good to hear everyone had a good night, especially Melb girls with the cool change!
    Jess - like Bath says, if he's well otherwise, I wouldn't be overly concerned. I hope that he IS well
    Mel - an afternoon by the pool sounds lovely! My dad's pool is coming along, but even when the water is sparkling later in the week, it's gonna be COLD! Can you see my mountain now, with the smoke cleared? Or am I covered in cloud now?
    I've left Oscar in his portacot and he's chortling away happily...I wonder how long before he starts to complain that I'm not there...
    We had a great night with my parents. My mum was just delighted to have him over (as always) and my dad kept saying how gorgeous he was (using that word!) in just his nappy. He was a bit feral, though. He did a runny poo that ended up on my shorts and the couch (lucky it's leather and wipes easily!), so I cleaned him up and left him nappyless. So, he crawled behind the couch, rolled over and let out a stream of pee - it was very funny, as my mum and I were watching him hide away and I was about to take a pic of him! Then, my mum held him over my dad, who was sitting, and he deposited a chuck on his head. So, it was laughter all round last night. We had a great sleep in my old room, with the kookaburra's greeting the day (could always hear them better there than at my place now - slightly more built up here than my parents', still get them, but they wake up and sing in the national park behind us, instead of my trees out my window!). The house was still warm, so we just sprawled on the bed. Well, I sprawled, Oscar flipped to his belly and curled up foetus-like on the other side of the bed. He is just too cute.
    My MCHN appt was changed today - and as I stayed at my parents, I missed the answering machine message left at 7.30am to say the reliever who was going to see me was ill! Lucky it wasn't out of my way to get there to discover a closed office, it's directly on my way home from the p's.
    Happy 6 months, Flynn!!
    Well, I haven't heard from DP since last night (he dropped his phone in the brigade bus, I have it now) and I have a pager message to say that our pumper is back in station...ummm, last we knew he and his crew were supposed to drive the pumper back, so I can only assume they have been reassigned to do backburning and to stick around for the lightning strikes hitting the area as I type. They were not impressed with the messing around they've been getting up there. It would be good to hear from him, though. They have phones the vols can use at the staging areas, but he can't be near one or he'd have called. The other crew members' phones must be out of service or left in bags while they are out doing work, too. If they were on their way back I'd have heard by now, at LEAST by pager message. I might give the captain a call, just to check.
    Oh, no! Sheepyard Flat is under immediate threat! Where will we camp in January?? Big River has also burnt in the past week, so we may have to find a temporary summer camp for our brigade camping group! I might flag a beachside location...Seriously, though, I'm hoping everyone under immediate threat has a bloody good fire plan in progress.
    CC - There comes a time when you just gotta leave father and baby to figure it out together...it's hard, but I've done it twice now (the other couple of times Oscar slept through the whole thing, so they don't count), and DP knew that I trusted him to 'be me' as much as he could while I was gone.
    My dad's coming over for dinner tonight, after my mum leaves to go back to the country, so that should be nice. He is SO good with Oscar - he was there last night, when I was getting ready for, and when I was in, the shower telling my mum 'he's tired', then 'he's hungry, then he'll go to sleep after a feed', in a very sage fashion. And you know what? He was right! My mum was so impressed.
    Well, I'm going to try to put Oscar back down so I can do these Christmas cards.

    Baths - Maybe you can let Wade lick the stamps for the Xmas cards as a reward for letting you complete them??? Great news about the Kindy... I should book Ally in somewhere now...

    Ally has not had a bottle since she was 1 week old (in Hospital). I'm not sure how she will go? If she is hungry enough she will take it I hope? She is not clingy at all. Dh takes her out to the dog park every morning for like an hour and on the w/e I swear I only get to hold her when she feeds otherwise he has her - he just adores her.. last night he asked in a worried voice "I'm not hogging her am I?", like she is a new toy and we need to share! He hee..So I don't think she will be a Mummies girl as she already loves her Dad too much.

    Jess - sorry about the weight honey.. Did they say you could do anything else? Like start solids early or give more Formular? did they give you any other adivce? Maybe you could post something in the main section of BB to see if others have had the same thing?

    Mel - yeah! that is great... I would have been so proud too. What a clever girl you have.

    Rory - is your menue plan for the flylady dinner planning? I still clean my sink each night and do the 2 minute swish and swipe of the bathroom, but that is all I do now... however I actually make my bed too... come to think of it the house is generally a LOT cleaner since flylady came.

    IK - hope you hear from your DH soon. I can imagine your always just a tad worried when he is out... HUGS..

    I'm proud of myself, I wrote my Xmas cards in November and sent them 1 December... First time EVER.. Normally I wait till like Christmas Eve to send them - he hee.. (I did however have an motive - I beautiful pic of Ally with Santa that I sliped into some of the cards)...

    OK, going to start to write out a list of things for DH to do.. and try and fix my ticker.. darn thing won't accept my pictures?

    Happy 6m to Flynnie!!! Its scary, the first girls for the august belly buddies are emerging... This time last year i had just found out that i was preggers!!

    Im going to have to take Anneliese to the MCHN, i dont think she' putting on weight either, but she's not interested in solids yet, and im already giving her as many feeds as she wants, both bf and ff. so what more can i do?? Im really hoping she doesnt have FTT, may have to take her to the paed this week... jess, i kow how you feel sweetie.

    rory, have fun planning your menu's. I used to do that, but feel like i havent had the time lately...

    mel - sounds like dh is having fun (not!) i hope he does come home for you tonight. enjoy your thai, your making me hungry....

    DP is back...I thought as much, he's so recalcitrant he didn't call on his way back!

    Yeah, they are all over the place! The pager message said the 'Heyfield crews' are back home, so I didn't rush to get on the phone to the captain or the station, because DP was in Briag, not Heyfield...turns out that's who they meant! Also, there are lightning strikes there now and even though Briag seems to be in the clear, DP is loathe to go back even if the ***** does hit the fan, because of the messing around they got up there last night. Don't blame him. You can't waste volunteers' time like that. It's one thing to send staff to hang around and wait, another to call vols away from their day jobs and responsibilities and have them do nothing but be shunted from one area to another, then home because you can't organise a p!ss up in a brewery...
    My mate in Tawonga texted me last night saying all was safe and that he'd call me. Usually he does...but he didn't and now I hear that residents of Tawonga are on high alert. I wish these fires would head back to crown land so that the DSE can worry about it and private property owners can relax!
    Gonna have a nap now, maybe leave Oscar and DP napping longer...

    Yeah, conditions are still dire out there. I'm worried about my Tawonga friend. DP says that he may well not go back if they are asked, to avoid being stuffed around. I can't believe they were sent back before predicted lightning strikes hit. But that's the mantra of the volunteers - "hurry up and wait".

    LOL IK. Has the storms hit out there as predicted?? I know we had a little rain last night, and a lot of wind, but not much else. And its a overcast sunny day here now. Wonder what its like out there...
