    Hi everyone... back from French Music feeling centered again. The boys are always really ratty of a Thursday morning and getting them ready to go is horrendous... but once i get there everything falls into place again and afterwards we go to a cafe and have a latte and a baby chino and all's well again But before I post anything else I'm going to try IK's and Rory's PhotoBucket sites...

    ETA: Oh my gosh Oscar is so cute toddling! And the way he "crawls" ie up on all fours is exactly how Niall does it! Coco is very cute too, clipped or unclipped, wouldn't matter
    Now for Flying Flynnie!!!... Oh but before I go, IK: I didn't have any trouble logging onto your site this time... weird... I didn't do anything different.

    I've got your site open now Rory Played the gate video LOL but can't find the flying Flynnie one... it's interesting to see our babes standing hey? Niall hasn't stood alone yet that I know of... but it's not far off... anyhow back to feeding baby bird mouths (the boys) and checking out PhotoBucket... oh and Mel I'll email you my password soon but I haven't added anything in a while... I'll let you know when I do. And Julie: don't worry, I feel exactly the same when my kids catch something off other kids if they have been brought out to socialise when still contagious. I used to get really peeved about it when i worked with kids because invariably I would contract the illness and have to take time off work.... and because I was a casual I didn't get paid ...back later...

    Rory - I was wondering what the pegasaurus would be before I opened it and had a good laugh when I saw what it was! Flynn is so cute, love his standing up pics.

    CC - so nice to hear from you again. Ally sounds like she is doing very well. I remember you saying a while ago that you were doing signing. You'll have work out when Ally waves is she asking for a drink or saying bye LOL!!! How cute to see.

    Julie - I am with you too. I hate it when people bring sick kids to parties etc. My GF had her baby in Nov and one of her friends bought her 3 kids in to see the baby when they all had colds, they were coughing the whole time! My GF ended up taking the baby to the nursery to keep him away from them. I'm sorry you miss your get together tomorrow, that would have been fun for you and the boys. I hate missing out on going out, I enjoy getting out of the house. Hope the boys feel better soon.

    Bath - I hate when I have to leave the house by a certain time, its always chaos and I never seem to leave at the right time!!! I am renowned for running late.

    Had the open day at Chelsea's prospective school this morning. We were shown around by 2 lovely grade 6 boys who did a great job of giving us the tour. Chelsea got to sit in the prep class and participate in a song and watch show and tell. She loved it. It helped that 2 kids who went to creche with her last year were in the class. The teacher was lovely and I hope Chelsea gets her next year. It is only a very small school with only 1 prep class and sometimes they have a Prep/1 comp class. We toured the music room, computer room, art room, languages room and library. Also got to meet the principal and she was really nice too. Marley was extremely good as we were there for over an hour. After her feral mood yesterday I was worried! Today she has been better, had a good sleep this morning and wasn't too cranky when she woke up. Hopefully her happy moods have returned.

    Hope everyone is having a good day!

    Hi all

    have calmed down since earlier. Osc is coughing like a heavy smoker but seems to feel ok as is being his normal daft self. Will isn't showing any signs yet but i can't believe he won't catch it from Oscar.

    Hi to Karen and CeCe

    Mel - Chelsea's school sounds really great - when does she start? Do you have to do stuff this early for next january or is it earlier? I'm so ignorant of the school finding process and timimg - good job i've got a while to go before having to worry - hopefully!

    IK - Wowww! Pashparties - ill have to google that! hope it doesn't come up with anything too saucy!

    Anyway, best be off to bed and hope that a certain little Mr sleeps better than last night!

    night night folks

    HI girls,
    Just popping thorugh to say hello. I miss being able to get into here and catch up more regularly. I have to say it is kinda weird trying to get to know a new Belly buddy group, I guess it is still early days yet, but I dont think it will be the same as my Junies.
    Tori is sleeping better (thank GOODNESS), but still cutting teeth- she has been cutting teeth for 5 weeks straight now, but she will have gone from 2 to 7 teeth soon.
    Had a total POO of a day yesterday, which got me stressed out ( I have had a HUGE vent about it in the boo hoo room) and our car is playing up which is a pain, but other than that I can say things really arent too bad, and all in all we are well and happy.

    Tori has just learnt to stand up without pulling herself up on anything, she stands up and then isnt too sure what to do with herself so she just stands there for a while and sits down again and crawls off. She is still crusing around the furniture and will walk holding our hands, but isnt confident enough to walk off on her own yet.

    Nic- Sorry to hear that your move wasnt smooth sailing, I hope that you get yourself in and settled really soon, and Nixon gets well quickly.

    Julie- Bummer about missing the meet today, I was looking forward to meeting another Junie. Maybe yo and I can catch up for a coffee or something some time? My email address is in my profile if you want drop me a line to organise a catch up.

    CC- It is great to hear that Ally is travelling along well, you will probably find she will be like Tori and cut all of her teeth at once.

    BIg hello to everyone else, I am hoping tofind some time over the weekend to come in and catch up properly on everyones news!

    Good afternoon

    Ali: great to see you... I'll check out your BooHoo next... I think we've all had a bit of a rough trot lately... of one kind or another... so good to be able to vent here though. How are you feeling? Don't save all the symptoms for your Belly Buds... you must be feeling so tired and just want to sleep all day?

    Nic: Oh no! share the horrors... moving at anytime is hard let alone doing it when preggers and with a baby... Hope Nixon gets well soon and at least is enjoying exploring his new environment.

    Julie: Good to see you're feeling better... Will might not catch it y'know... when we all got sick recently my DD never contracted it despite having her brothers coughing all over her etc. Fingers crossed for him!

    Well I had plans of going out today, into the city, but I just couldn't muster the energy. Only just managed to get Wade to kinder, where is is now. Niall is alseep so it's a big WooHoo here ATM. Other news is that DH is applying for another role (in the same office, more senior than current role) so we are quietly optimistic of him receiving that. A few days ago he asked me how I felt about living in Perth for 2 years (there are good jobs going over there in his department). I ummed and ahhed... the "Pro" list was kinda short compared to staying put.... and when I Googled to check out rents in Perth I was gobsmacked! OMG it's twice as much as Melbourne for an equivalent property.... it would almost null and void any financial gain of moving so DH decided to go for another job here instead (he has been doing his current role for 3 years and is up for another challenge)... although I have to admit, I love Perth and the idea did kinda appeal (I've lived there before). I have to say I do have Gypsy blood (figuratively speaking LOL) and would enjoy moving all over the place, even O/S for DH's career... even Verity was open to the idea (we ran it past her)... she'd adapt really well to any environment i think. Anyway it's interesting that having my Junies makes it easy to consider mobility. Thinking of you Nic... hope the dust settles soon

    Oh, crap, Ali - I was going to ask you how things were with your new car
    Nickers - I hope things pan out soon!
    I went to another swimming pool today because I didn't fancy driving to our Saturday pool and I met up with a school friend I hadn't seen in years. Oscar was flirting and being cheeky, then I look up at the lady he's following and gurgling at, she looks at me and we realised who the other was! It was meant to be, cos I had gone to the pool attached to a gym closer to Knox but a school group was about to use it, so I got my money back and moved on.
    I also, quite literally, bumped into Mel at Knox! I was supposed to be doing a 'quick in and out', but ducked into a shop to see if they had any nappy covers, and in my distraction slammed straight into Mel's pusher - very funny, had a mini catch-up and parted ways.
    Hoping to get Oscar to sleep for a bit now so that I can quickly write some of my assignment - it needs to be just anything now, as the next assignment is looming and is worth more, grrr.
    Anyway, better go and get into 'study zone'. Hope everyone has nice weekends and Mothers' Day if I don't get on before then...

    Hi Guys,
    Well anohter tough day here and I feel quite emotionally spent tonight. I found out today that my best friend who was due to have her baby 4 weeks before me had gone for her 12 weeks U/S only to find out that she had been preg with identical twins and she had lost them at 7w & 7w4d. I went and spent the afternoon with her, she is trying to be strong but I know that she is really upset, her DH works away out in the NT and is trying to get a flight back to be with her. She is going in for a D&C on monday.
    I just feel so bad because I know how much she wanted this baby, and I also feel bad because I am preg and now she is not, i know that she doesnt hold that against me, but still.
    Anyway tomorrow is a new day and it is Mothers day on sunday so I am just going to have a nice relaxing weekend, and start the week fresh on monday.

    Julie - I hope Will manages to stay "germ free"! Chelsea starts school at end of Jan next year. Its so scary to think my little baby will be going to school next year. She is very excited about it though so thats really nice and comforting. Hope you got a good nights sleep last night.

    NIc - good to hear from you. I read post in preggie journal, you poor thing. Thinking of you and hope things and Nixons illnesses improve soon.

    Ali - i read your boo hoo and what a big boo hoo that was! what a nightmare of a day. Hope Tori's teeth come through soon and gives her some relief. Marley has been simliar with only 2 still but more pushing up. I don't remember Chelsea being this bad. So sorry to hear about your friends twins, what an awful thing for her and her DH to go through.

    Bath - I am glad you are not moving away!!!! Good luck to DH on his new job. Melb was once the 2nd most exp city to live in and I think Qld and WA have overtaken it. I know Qld is going through a massive property boom ATM.

    IK - must have been the day for running into people and literally with us!!!! How funny, being in the same shop at same time and crashing prams too! Hope you manage to get your assignment done and DP made good progress on the deck. Happy mothers day to you too, have a great one if we don't hear from you before then.

    Well I had a great day today. MIL took Chelsea today and they went bowling again (Chelsea is hooked now!), then MIL, her mum and Chelsea went to a restaurant for lunch, then shopping, then she took Chelsea home for dinner and back to us at 7.30pm. I went shopping myself (and crashed into IK) and got the girls some clothes (nothing for myself which is good for me), had a coffee and just a general walk around, Marley was in a relatively happy mood so that was good. DH and I had Thai takeaway, delicious red curry prawns!! Time for coffee and browse the other posts.

    Have a great night

    Hi everyone I think I have solved my problems with what is wrong with Cody, warning TMI coming up. Just after lunch I went to the toilet and when I wiped I noticed that I have indeed got AF back. Lucky me (not), just in time for mothers day, DH said I should feel lucky not to of had AF for such a long time, just wish it had been longer,lol.

    Mel it sounds like a really nice school that you have enrolled Chelsea into, and yum on the prawns in red curry.

    Ali sorry to hear about your friends twins, and what a shocker of a time with your car, hopefully it won't cost alot to fix. I've got my fingers crossed that next week will be a great one for you. Yay on Tori standing by herself, she'll be walking around in no time you'll see.

    IK how's your studing going?

    Bath fingers crossed on your DH getting the next job, oh and it was his left hand, you'll never guess what he did today, he was using a metal file and he jabbed into his finger, I swear he's accident prone lately.

    Nic I hope that Nixon is on the mend, hopefully your living situation improves soon, it can't be nice living with what you are (I read your pg journal), all I can say is YUK.

    Julie I'm so like that, if my boys are sick I would never think of taking them anywhere that they could pass it on. I use to have a friend like that, she would always bring her girls over even when they were sick or had gastro and wouldn't you know it a few days later my boys would have it (not happy Jan).

    Rory how are you and Flynn going with that cold?

    Bath can I get your passwords, thanks.

    Oh and I've got another first here today, Cody is now walking around furniture.

    hugs xoxo

    Nearly lost this post - lucky I saved it in word first!!!!

    Oh Amanda it is good news you got to the bottom of Cody's sleep problems - it probably partly explains why you were feeling so [email protected] too!! Flynn's cold is on the improve, thanks

    Mel I can't believe it is already school-choosing time for Chelsea! Pretty soon Marley will be looking at universities at this rate!

    Ali, hugs to both you and your GF - how awful for her

    Hey Nickers, yours in pregnant sympathy is all I can say

    Bath, please explain what French Music lessons are - I think you did or were going to a while ago - are they music lessons in French? Is it a sneaky way of killing two birds (language and music) with the one stone? If so, clever idea!! I wonder if they have "Spanish Golf" lessons for kids - I would choose Spanish over any other language for my kids and I think golf would be great to get 'em hooked on early. Either that or soccer (more money innit than AFL or basketball!) I can see little Flynaldo scoring goals for Arsenal already (LOL!!)

    Julie Flynn has smokers cough too - problem is he coughs so much he throws up all the time, poor love!

    Better go - just had chicken with cumquats for dinner - I want more but I am gonna surprise DH with golden syrup dumplings instead - the poor thing is outside doing a radiator/heater core changeover, muttering to himself "I hate holdens" (he is a ford man at heart but we now drive a holdem stationwagon).

    Oh and Ceecee, good to hear from you!!!

    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to pop in and say HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!!


    I am working for mothers day can you believe!! DH told me to go into town and buy myself some nice new clothes this week as my pressie. Lachlan made me a card with a hand and foot print (in paint) i think he may have had some help there. It was lovely.
    Im looking forward to a nice dinner when i get home and NO WASHING UP TONIGHT!!

    I hope everyone is well, sounds like a few of our bubbas have colds at the moment.

    Nic - I hope nixon gets better soon, the poor thing has had a bad time lately with sickness hasnt he? Maybe he is just getting it all out of the way!! Im sorry to hear that the move didnt go too smoothly either!

    Ali - I hope you are feeling a bit better, so sorry about your friend, what a horrible thing to have to go through!!

    Rory - So funny about your DH, mine is the opposite, he is a Holden man but we are driving a ford falcon. Everytime there is the smallest problem with it i hear him mutter to himself (hmmm fords!!)

    Amanda - Sorry AF arrived, i really didnt want it to come back but for some reason it made me feel normal again so it wasnt such a bad thing! Yay for Cody walking around the furniture too.

    Mel - sounds like you had a really relaxing shopping day, i would love one of those, Lachlan seems to play up when i take him out for too long and WONT stay in the pram for long periods of time anymore, he wants to get out and go so sitting down and having a coffee is out of the question for me at the moment.

    Lachlan is almost walking, he has stood up against the wall and let go a few times and just stood there by himself but as soon as he gets the urge to go somewhere he gets down and crawls. He spent most of the day yesterday getting around but walking holding onto the walls, he is a funny kid. When he isnt doing that he is trying to push everything around, i mean everything, he will get all his toys (even the ones without wheels) and he will push them up to the other end of the house and then whinge at me to come and turn them around so he can push them back. He has started pushing his highchair, the dining chairs, and he is really trying hard to move the coffe table but its a bit too heavy at the moment.
    he has cut three new teeth in the last week but suprisingly he hasnt been that much worse in the nights just the days. He is now sleeping from 7pm until 1 -2am and then til 6am and he is up(yes, in the dark!!)

    Anyway girls, i had better get back to work.

    Hope you are all well!!!

    Nic – Sorry to hear you had a shocking move and that you’ve ended up in such a place. Hope things improves for you quickly and that Nixon is feeling better very soon.

    Ali – Hope your car gets sorted soon – sounds like you had such a bad day! Would love to meet up for coffee or something – Will has just started coughing and I have a sore throat so I guess we might be germ-bags for the next week but I’ll send you an email in a few days so we can arrange a get together when we’re germ-free! Sorry to hear about your best friend losing her twins, that’s so awful.

    Bath – Good luck for DH getting the new job. Shame you’re not coming to Perth! But completely understand re rental prices – we are renting and paying mortgage as we are building – nightmare!

    Mel – Sounds like you had a great day on Friday – red curry prawns sound fab.

    Amanda – Am a bit envious AF has turned up for – at least you know where you are at now. I still have no idea and we want #3! Your poor DH – first his hand, then his finger – I migt be abit nervous if he goes near any more tools for a while!  Good on Cody walking around the furniture – Will has only just started doing that too – lots of bruises on head from falls now!

    Rory – Hope Flynns’ feeling better – poor chappy coughing so much that he’s sick. Lol re Flynaldo! Can I have some golden syrup dumplings – yumm!

    Was given a lovely lie-in this morning (although james often does give me a lie-in thsi one was guilt free!) then had sausage, bacon and eggs for a late breakfast, then let on the pute for 10 mins so i could wish my Junies Happy Mother's Day!. Osc gave me a great mum's day pressy this morning - his first wee in a potty!!! Hope that is a sign that he is ready to start TT. Anyway off to do something nice, i think we're off to a playground near the river for a picninc (not that i'm hungry yet after the huge brekky). Hope you all have a lovely day.

    Hey Julie,
    Sounds like you had a lovely morning and Yay for Oscar and the potty!!

    Bath - forgot to include you in my last post!! Oh dear. As for the moving, i guess im a bit like you (gypsy) but at the same time as much as i would love to see new places, i HATE moving, packing, unpacking etc. We moved 6 times in two years and i was over it!! Good luck to DH with the job.

    HAPPY MOTHERS DAY everyone!

    Amanda - what a lovely mothers day present, getting AF back! At least you have an answer as to whats been going on. Hope you are not feeling too crappy today and the boys spoil you!

    Rory - it has been a scary process thinking about schools at least with uni they can pick their own LOL!!! Glad to hear Flynn is starting to get over his cold. Chicken and cumquats sounds interesting - do you have a cumquat tree? And my DH loves golden syrup dumplings, might have to get you to make him some, they are a bit sickly for me.

    Dee - bummer having to work today, but have fun buying yourself some new clothes. Lachlan sounds like he is mastering the art of walking, he'll soon let go of all the things and go for it. LOL about pushing furniture around - Marley loves pushing our bar stools but on tiles they make an awful noise. I can usually only stop for a coffee if I have food for Marley, otherwise she wont sit still for long. I just take vegimite bread and that keeps her amused for a little while, long enough to finish a coffee LOL!!! Thats great news about his teeth and getting up in the dark must not be fun, esp since its still dark!

    Julie - sounds like you had a lovely breaky. Thats wonderful news that Oscar used the potty, well done Oscar. Enjoy your picnic at the playground.

    My GF is leaving for Japan in 2 weeks so we got together with some other friends for a bit of a farewell party. Marley still hasn't been so great, so MIL came to babysit and we just took Chelsea. We had a brilliant night, the boys got a bit drunk and were in the spa outside for most of the night until we had to drag them out at 11pm! I am sure they would have stayed in all night. This morning I got b'fast in bed (cold cup of tea, burnt scrambled eggs, good bacon!), but it was still a lovely thought. DH got up when Marley woke but forgot to give her b'fast! I wondered why she was so unhappy this morning, thought it was just her cold. Chelsea slept in until 9.30 as she didn't go to bed until late last night. My present from kinder was a mug with her drawings on it and her name, they must have fired them because the drawings don't come off, very sweet. It was wrapped in cellophane and a card in the shape of a flower. I just love getting their homemade presents. DH also bought on behalf of the girls a new pair of pj's which Chelsea picked, some new slippers and a years subscription to Donna Hay magazine. I felt very spoilt. Chelsea got up and rushed and gave me the biggest cuddle and kiss and said Happy Mothers Day mum! These are the days I just love being a mum! DH working this afternoon, so just home alone with my girls. Marley still not well so may take her to Dr's next week as I think she has more than just a cold.

    I hope you are being spoilt today as you all deserve it.
