    Oh Dee, your wonderful to be still feeding Nathan, I would have given up after what you went through. What a fright re the hairband and popcorn, I'm so worried as my older kids have so many little toys, at least they mostly are confined to their bedrooms but once my Nathan is on the go I will have to be so careful.
    Jess - hope the infection clears up soon.
    Nathan commando crawled 1st time today. It's so funny when I put him to bed at night, his face looks like he's laughing hysterically but there's no noise and he kicks his legs simutaneously, I will have to take the video in tomorrow night (what's the bet he won't do it then).
    Can't remember what else I was going to write, it must be time for bed.
    Hi also to Bath, IK, CC, Amanda, Mel, Simone, Neeny, Nickel,Nickers, Dee, Rory and those I've missed.

    Nighty nite girls... cricket's over... time to open up the house and let some cool air in for tomorrow's expected high 30's temp.

    IK: LOL an English major will do that to you every time! I used to really enjoy drawing until I did it at uni... until my style was totally stuffed up by "learning". To this day I prefer the artwork of the self taught (naive). I like that Jack Johnson quote too. I'm still thinking about that San Fran Compact... good work Rory sharing that with us.

    Hiya Karen and Nickel... looking forward to checking out your blog/piccys tomorrow... Niall needs a feed now... sleep well Junies.

    Nic - it awful when they turn feral! I think they all do it at some stage and I totally agree with what Bath said! Heading outside is a great destresser - I used to do it with Chelsea! Hope he settles down tonight for you.

    Nickel - Ruby is beautiful, you have every right to be a proud mummy! GP thinks Marley's eczema is not due to allergies. She has been formula fed since she was 2 1/2 months old so they don't think it is the formula and she was born with bad skin. The cortisone appears to be clearing it up thankfully. GP was going to send me to a skin specialist if it didn't clear, so I will wait and see. What ego products did you use or do you know of? The olive oil sometimes works on her cradle cap but she looks like a grease monkey and it usually comes back in a day or two. Charmed was a good one tonight but they said at the end, that it wont be back until later in the year - why do they keep doing that?

    IK - "We got everything we need and everything we need is enough" - TOO TRUE! So glad to hear your slice turned out - what sort was it?

    Karen - well done Nathan on his crawling! They are all advancing so well. Marley has started rolling alot more and I find her in her cot in all sorts of different positions.

    Tonight I have put Marley to bed without being wrapped up! She has socks on her hands to stop her scratching her head and so far, so good. She has been asleep since 9.30 and we haven't heard a peep out of her, we'll see how it goes tonight. It's so beautiful outside at the moment, might go and have my coffee on the deck. Night all!

    Morning ladies.
    Ive noticed that nixon has been getting harder to put to bed lately. we used to put him down awake and he'd look around for a while then drift off, now he carries on either the min you walk out or not long afterwards. He has started to roll on his tummy which he doesnt like so screams until he gets turned over.... yet thismorning (he is still asleep) he is happily asleep on his tum??
    Nickel- Ruby is a cutie pie, she suits her name!
    Mel- i hope Marley got through the night without scratching herself.
    Hi Karen- Now Nathan is commando he'll be going in all sorts of directions!

    oh i meant to also say i text our neighbours re dead fish, she rang the following day, i got dh to fish it out and give it a porcelan ceremony!
    better go finish cleaning, get everyone ready for real estate appoint at 10am. BBL

    Morning ladies...

    Going to be a very lazy one at my place today (although i do have the car today, so i cant escpae... if i can find the keys!! DH lost them and had to get his mum to run him to work!) Did all the dishes, mopping, general cleaning yesterday, just have to get the washing off the line, its still wet atm... and backyard is shady atm. Have closed the house up now, kids having brekky (coco pops... mmm healthy!!) (that was said sarcastically BTW!)

    Any special plans in here today?? Think my boys will be playing with their trains, i bought them a Thomas the Tank DVD "Calling All Trains" last week, and yesterday they got the Collapsible Sodor Suspension Bridge. So i have 2 very happy little boys here... and one happy mum, as it keeps them occupied!!

    OK, couple of things.
    Mel - it's an 'Oaty Date Bar' from the NZ Edmonds Cookery book that my sister gave me for Christmas.
    Second, my mum emailed me from Central America and among other things, told me one of my promising younger cousins has got into a medicine course! Not bad for a girl from a poor family in a developing country! Well, she's better off than a lot of kids, because my mum sends money over to her family and not everyone has a relative in a developed country who can do that. But quite apart from money, not everyone in those countries gives themself the luxury of harbouring such aspirations. I am so proud of her! I can tell Oscar that he has a doctor cousin on each side of his mummy's family (I have an Irish cousin who is a doc, too) and that of the two, Kelly is the one to be especially proud of, as Jim has a doctor father and grew up with opportunity laying at his feet (not that he doesn't deserve it, it's just been easier for him, obviously). So, there was me punching the air when I read that email - it's been her childhood dream, and she told me about it when I was there 4 years ago. Another one of my cousins there skipped 2 years of primary school...cop that! All that Mayan genetic interplay must make smart kids!
    Anyway, my big woo hoo for the day (actually more than just the day, it's been 6 and a half months coming)...Oscar did the 'find and feed' thing that I'd been waiting for since I started BFing! at about 4am I stirred lightly only to find my little hobbit attached to me and he whimpered when I stirred because he lost traction! I was beaming to myself in the dark, because the day he could Find and Feed has arrived! I slept nekked, so it was relatively easy for him, but thus far I've sensed him stirring and had to position him in front of me (from there he attached himself, but I had to get him level), but this morning he positioned himself and went for it My little boy is growing up...
    So, I'd been waiting since then to get online to tell you all!
    My slice is still yummy 12 hours on...the crunchiness I had attributed to slightly overdone was in fact some date and currant mix that was against the tin, the rest is, well, quite ideal. When I was icing it, I realised that my sister had made one when I was there and she had complained that the icing was too runny, but we had loved it and scoffed it down anyway. That said...mine is better. Even she'd give that to me. I am allowed to boast because my baking forays have been far and few between...for good reason!
    ok, gonna put this boy down so I can wash my hair and take the dog for a walk before it gets too hot...toying with the idea of visiting pony today, or just waiting till Saturday when it's cooler. When I get back I'll be indoors, fan on, putting away papers into the bin or filing cabinet. I'd like to move an antique chair from Oscar's room into the study...when I create the floor space. There are heaps of novels that I will try to flog on eBay and then I'll have floor back!
    Hee, hee, ABC 774 will talk about nudity after 10am - should be interesting. Apparently, 2 percent of women surveyed had been caught naked...at work...go figure! 40% have been caught nekked in their backyards. I have yet to join those ranks, though I have ventured naked to the backyard under cover of darkness to get the dog in (sleep naked, couldn't be arsed putting clothes on cos was warm night...). Anyway, it will be interesting to hear people's jitters about the naked human body after the news.
    Catchyas!

    I sleep naked, as does DH. (IN winter i sleep with clothes on in melb, in perth i never did) Last night i was putting out the washing with no clothes on... The other day SIL come around while i was in bed, and Xander's latest trick is opening the locked door... so i walked out starkers!! We had a laugh.... Lucky im kinda proud of my body after 3 kids... and i wear my c/s scar as a proud war wound! Its very neat and tidy

    Im only wearing nickers and a top, have to get dressed as i have my last visit from protective services - they are withdrawing from my "case" (like there was even one!!) So at least thats over now. Boys are trashing my clean bathroom atm... every time i feed Declan atm, i have to bath him, as he insists on feeding himself all the time, but trashes himself...

    I wihs it was tonight already... or tomorrow night, even better...

    Trying to figure out what to have for lunch, im hungry but dont have alot! May just be cheese noodles...

    I must confess that DH and I sleep nekked, most days I usually just have my bra and knickers on unless I'm expecting visitors, I have been caught out on the odd occassion with a surprise visitor, but it's my house so I can wear what I like is my saying.

    Nic like the others have said it maybe a stage that he is going thru and he should grow out of it. I know it doesn't help much saying that but there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, he may also be experiencing separation anxiety, just a thought.

    IK that slice sounds yum, can you either post the recipe or email me it please.

    Mel I so hear you on the Charmed thing, you just start getting interested in it again and it goes on a long break. How did covering Marley's hands go last night?

    hugs xoxo

    Nic - I hear you about the rolling thing! I didn't wrap Marley last night (just socks on her hands) and she woke a few times during the night on her tummy, or legs through the bars. She is now sleeping on her side or tummy now - not much you can do about it. She is still in her sleeping bag at night. Luckily, no scratches! Hope the inspection goes well. PML about the fishy porcelain ceremony, how fitting LOL!!

    IK - slice sounds delicious. I find you can usually perfect a recipe after doing it a few times. Keep up the good work. Well done to your cousin, what an acheivement it must be for her. Do they have a decent med school where she is? Pity she can't come here and study, we need lots of docs at the mo. Cool about Oscar doing the find and feed thing! He is a clever boy - must make it easier for you.

    Amanda - picture is so cute! Got through the night without a scratch thanks to the socks! I will be putting them on every sleep now.

    Simone - go the plum and apple. Watch out the plums don't give the the runs! I always remember my nana warning us not to eat too many off the tree because of it. At least you have found something she likes. Will check out blog now.

    Re the naked thing - I cannot sleep without something on! Even if its just a singlet and knickers, but I cannot sleep nude (silly isn't it!). DH usually sleeps in boxers, but if its hot he will go starkers. Our house is air conditioned so I usually have shorts/skirt and tshirt on. It can get quite cold in her sometimes, but I would rather have goose bumps than sweat.

    DH and I going out for dinner with one of my close friends and her DH. Over to Beaumaris to a restaurant we have been going to with them for 6 years! Its beautiful and I am so looking forward to it. MIL is coming over to mind kids. I love going out for dinner, esp on a hot night like tonight.

    Ooooh, sounds nice mel Annelise sleeps on her tummy, she doesnt like it, generally wakes up crying so i have to go in and flip her over...

    My house was cool until i cooked myself some lunch... now its so hot!! Its 35 out here atm, but feels so dry and yucky outside... When kids gets up going to set up their little clam pool in the shade so they can cool down a little bit... Declans up wandering the house atm... getting all my pots and pans out little buggar...

    If I forget, Amanda, email me and I'll send the recipe. I'll try to remember to scan it this week - need to clear the study to get my laptop in there to attach to the printer. MIL has our desktop still (left it with her when we went to NZ) and the study is SO cluttered that I can't even find room to put down my 12 inch iBook!
    Went for a walk with the dog, then to the library and borrowed Baby Love and some DVD's. Hoping to have this lounge room tidy in an hour so that I can sit here in front of the fan to watch a DVD. The house is a lot cooler than outside cos I shut up the curtains and pulled in some windows. Pretty good for a place with no aircon, actually. I would go naked except I'm expecting deliveries this week LOL!
    Had lunch, was still hungry so had an NRG Maxx - much better now.
    I'd like to erect our new wading pool and buy water in for it, but I don't know where DP would be happy putting it. I'm tempted to put it on the patio, but DP would hate that. He doesn't want it on the lawn, either, and he wanted to dig it in somewhere. No point buying water for it if we're only going to have to empty it again to move it when DP comes back...Oh, well, the local pool will have to do tomorrow!
