    Thanks for the update Jess. Glad she was awake and breastfed even better.
    Had our osteo friend come around last night and work on Nixon.
    surprisingly he was pretty good afterwards. he had 2 feeds after it and wasnt too spewy (def not like last time after his adjustment) so i hope he is good today also. fed him thismorning already and only did one small spew that was it!
    he is going to continue to come around weekly for the next 4-5 weeks though.

    Off to Mums & bubs movie thismorning

    Jess: thanks that's sounding really positive.

    Nic: Let us know how it goes at the movies! What are you going to see?

    I was up at midnight last night after getting 2 hours sleep. Everyone else was sleeping and I decided to feed Niall in the lounge... turned on the TV and Picnic at Hanging Rock was on... had to change stations because it was too scary for me! LOL I've seen the movie at least twice but it really reminds me of my aunty and uncle's farm where I spent a lot of time wandering around similar rock formations up in the hills. Once, for no apparent reason I got the willys big time! I was only about 11 (long before I'd seen PAHR) and I felt a strong need to high-tail it down the mountain just like that girl in the movie did! I've since been able to return to that hill and the rock formations... but for some reason there was something going on that day... weird!

    Ok... time to make Wade's bottle (yes, he still likes these... hopefully he'll get over it soon, with a new baby around i don't want to force the issue though)... then it's his nap time.... back later.

    Awww Candy.... hope you are having a better day (((hugs))). Regarding China... it's one of those decisions that you'd have to rely heavily on instinct... what was your first reaction? If it's still a tricky decision make a list of pros and cons and tally up each list.

    Well we're a quiet lot today! I've been checking out an Australian fashion forum... it's set out just like this one except it's where people focus on clothing/sales/wardrobe tips etc. Only problem is that they moderate your first 5 posts meaning that they aren't visible straight away... I'm having to wait until they read them and make sure I'm not a spammer or trying to advertise etc. I'm hoping to get lots of tips before i slowly start to build up a new wardrobe.

    thanks Bath but honestly it's been a slow downward slide for me today. As for China, if matt wants to go I won't stop him. it's to ghreat an opportunity but I won't go.

    Candy, dont get yourself too down. How long do you guys have to get back to Matts work with an answer?
    I think writing pro's and cons like Bath suggested would be a great idea. Even if you have made up your mind Matt may be able to see all the reasons not to go that maybe he hasn't thought of? would it be something that is short term/long term/indefinate?
    Nice Stats on Ryans behalf!

    We went and saw the Lake house. is was ok. nice to see Sandra & Keanu in a film together again as i LOVED speed. it was a nice movie but really its far fetched (could never happen)


    Then me and my gf (with her 5week old) Had a nice lunch then coffee. so I have had a much better day today then yesterday and Nixon thankfully was not too spewy because silly me forgot to take extra bibs with me! (prob cause they were all drying after going through so many in the prev few days)

    Blissfully quiet day today - no appointments to keep, nowhere except Aldi to be sometime today (will do that after I've had my instant noodles for sustenance,fed Oscar and changed him...).
    So sorry to read about Simone and Annaliese
    Candy, it will fall into place, hopefully!
    I was a bit naughty last night and popped over to the neighbour's house to share some non-preservative red wine! Only had two glasses over nearly 3 and a half hours. BUT Oscar didn't get to sleep until 2.30, only to wake an hour later then 2 hours after that - I asked for it by staying out till midnight with the neighbour! I stayed in bed till 1pm, though, so I'm as rested as I could be.
    Gonna finish these noodles now...

    Well I finally bit the bullet and went and joined the gym today, and I am really really looking forward to starting up. I have taken out a full membership so I can do aerobics, use the gym and use the pools as well. They have a large hydrotherapy pool there which is always warm, which means I can take Tori over for a swim when the weather gets warmer, and as it is just across the road it should be great.

    Tanya- Sorry to hear that you didnt really enjoy your mums & Bubs group. I am really looking forward to mine starting, I guess partly because I am looking forward to some adult conversation. All of these groups can get very political though, soemtimes you just may not gel with a certain group of people, maybe give it a couple of weeks, but if you dont like it and dont feel comfortable then don't go back.

    Nic- Good to hear that you had a better day today with Nixon. I am really looking forward to going to a movie again. I want to see the new pirates of the Carribean movie. Might have to have a look and see what session are on at my local cinema.

    Candy- Wow what a huge decision you and Matt have to make. I agree with Bath, trust your instincts and do what is best for your Family. Sorry to hear you are feeling depressed, hope that you are feeling better soon.

    After discussing the job offer that I got yesterday with DH I have decided that I am just not ready to make that kind of commitment. Even though it is only 2 hours a week it is every week for the next 14 weeks and if we are having a bad day or have had a bad night I am still going to have to get up and go in. So I decided to give it a miss, which is a bit of a shame because it is the area that I am hoping to specialise in eventually, but at the moment spending time with Tori is the most important thing.

    Ali - good call, jobs will come and go, but you can't get back this time with Tori
    I've gone blank again -Oscar's crying cos he's being changed after a bath...the crying is so distracting when DP is with him and I'm trying to do something else!!

    Hey IK. I'm trying to deal with the second day of ryan's growth spurt. He's bein absolutely feral all day. But at least he's still sleeping through.

    Tanya - just remember every baby is different. Lucas might be testing you out not but you may never experience the terrible twos while this woman gets your share too

    Hi all, I have been keeping up with reading everyone's posts, just the same old story of not getting a chance to actually reply!

    Nickers, doesn't the mum & bub sessions at the movies rock? I used to go with DS from when he was 2 months for ages...he would sleep in the sling and wake up for a feed 1/2 hr before the end of the movie. I'd go every week, whether I liked the movie or not, because it was so nice to do a normal activity. Of course, now with a toddler it's impossible!

    Candy, what a full on thing to have to think about so soon after having a baby. Sorry to hear you're having another feral day with Ryan...Freya was a shocker Mon/Tue/Wed this week, just cried and cried no matter what. Today she just wants to sleep (provided she's being held or in the sling of course!)

    Ali, sounds like you made a good decision re: the job...things are so full on at this stage and you probably don't want any extra pressure...hopefully you'll get another opportunity when you're ready, because it sounds great!

    Simone, hope your lil gal is getting better!

    Amanda, sorry to hear about your DH being so insensitive...hope you are able to eventually have a discussion with him about it at least.

    Tanya, mother's groups are tricky things, aren't they? They can either be a great support or just cause more angst. I had an experience like yours when I went to one with DS, felt like everything was a competition, so I never went back. I envy women who find a great one. When you think about it, it is a big ask for a group of random women to get on just because they happen to have a baby around the same time.

    Things have been really hectic around here...DS, after 3 trips to the doctors, has finally been diagnosed with ear infection in both ears...one of them has a burst eardrum, which is apparently common in kids and will heal itself, but it has been heartbreaking because he's never been this sick. Freya is settling into a bit of a routine, and will go to sleep in her cot at night, but there is no way she'll do it in the day, even though I go through exactly the same motions. So it looks like I'll have the sling as a permanent fixture for a bit longer yet!

    Yay!
    When besides the fact that Tim is home again from school sick, nothing is really new here!
    Patrick has actually had a sleep today, not a catnap, Bella is asleep next to me, DH is most probably talking to the little tramp that will not understand the meaning of stop ringing, and Lizzie laying on the floor withher legs in the air!

    Question?
    How many of you knew what the census means and how often it is carried out? The reason I ask is because this little tramp had no idea(she is 23) of what the census was and why people were handing out these booklets!

    just got back from maternal nurse - oscar's a growing monster, he'll be like his daddy growing off the charts, for sure. 5.5 freaking kilos and an almost 10cm length growth...and i carry him around in a sling...for how long???
    dtd last night and now i'm dosing up on ural again - when does the friction sting after-effect stop after having a baby?? it was worth it, though - might have my mojo back.woke DP up after oscar went down and gave him a good seeing to
    must try mums and babies movie sessions - thanks, jo!
    gotta go now and organise passport photos of oscar...
