    Rory so glad things are on the up and up with DH at least you know it can and will be fix, still a be scary though...

    Jaspen - how are you coping how BF settled down into a routine again...

    Gee Amanda I too didnt realize how much time had gone by.... 33 weeks already not long until the next june sib arrives.... Those of us who are still "planning to make a junie sib better get a wiggle on LOL... Well actully still heaps of time for us as we arent starting to TTC until April 09 so this will the biggest gap I have had... 3.5 - 4yr gap if everything goes according to plan...

    Well my sister left for SA yesterday as they have found a house.... She was looking forward to it in the end but I think thats also because her and her DP had been apart for 4 weeks.... As always AF decided to join her for the trip... LOL ... She had her little car so packed up there wasnt much room left... She had her huge dog, two cats and three birds all in the car plus food for them all and cat scaching pole the dogs bed.... she would have looked a sight when she pulled up for petrol!!! At least now she can start TTC again now that they are together again....



    I have start TT again kai is still not doing to well keeps going her poo and wee in her knickers and not the potty even thought the potty is right there in the lounge with her... I have tried to take of the knicker and let her run around with nothing but she want have it she like to put on the knickers and pants... I dont know if I should keep going or try again latter on AGAIN but keep thinking she has to learn one day so why not now... I know she will get it one day just very annoying ATM with all the clean up... I am used to doing this in tropics where the house is all tiles and not carpet!!!! she gets it sooner that latter....

    just giving an update on our docs appointment today.
    we have now been given a refferal for a ear,nose, and throat specialist which our appointment is for Sept 16th (2 weeks) Its most likely that Nixon will have to do a sleep study which means a night in hospital with mum or dad where they monitor his breathing patterns, apneas and snoring.
    The doc took one look at this tonsils and said that they are huge.
    everything i mentioned to him matched with a sleep disorder and apnea.
    The fact he snores is the main one.
    he wakes up sweaty (b/c he works so hard in his sleep to breath)
    he often wakes up grumpy because he hasnt gotten the quality of sleep he needs
    he often sleeps for hours on end which is prob because he is trying to get that quality of sleep he is missing out on.

    so more that likely the road we will take will be removal of his tonsils and or adenoids.
    Jules boy Ronan had this about 6-12months ago and i remember thinking back then a lot of what she said Nixon was the same. I feel down as i never did anything about it before this.

    This can cause a lot of learning difficulties and behauvoural problems so glad we are onto now and not after starting school. ive thought for a while his speech is a little behind, who knows if it is all because of this.....

    It's great, Nic, that all this has been identified now. Like you say, it's before school starts and you can get help with supporting his developmental needs so that isn't disadvantaged by it Nixon is lucky to have a mummy who's got great observational skills - how many other kids' parents just think these things are normal and never realise what's behind their kids' delayed development?
    Tali - poor Kai. Take it easy on her and maybe try not to verbalise your annoyance about her toileting too much. She's most likely suffered a set back because of the move and the distress about wanting to be back in QLD, where her previous life was She'll get there. The more you push for what you want, instead of being patient in your manner, the more they'll resist...that's what dogs and horses have taught me LOL! You're all in a strange headspace now - you've made a huge transition!
    Better go do some more housework before MIL brings Oscar back home...

    LOL Maya you scare me at how much you read me.... You are so right I know but I still find myself getting sooo very angry at my Baby.... Poor thing friday it was ok to do wee and poo's in her pants and now because I have decided it no longer OK for her to do this anymore.... It must be the most confusing time for them one day its normal the next its not.... Like my mum told me yetserday its the 1st step a baby takes into inderpendents it the 1st thing they have to take sole responsablity for.... as it is only them who knows when they need to go.... Its also the first step we take as parents of letting our child grow up....

    But I did have a small break through today after I picked up may we moved the potty into the toilet and everytime May went she would take Kai with her and Kai has now gone and done 3 wee's Yippy I hope this helps her realise what she is meant to be doing....

    Nic- i know heaps of kids who have this problem most of the ones I know were heaps older too... Dont be down on yourself things will work out... if he is having problems with his tonsils and adenoids hows his hearing as I think they are all conected worth a check I guess but I am sure your doctor will let you know what you have to do next...

    Hi girls, feels like I have been gone for ages but its only been a week!!!!! Just been super busy but thought it was about time I pop in and see what's been happening.

    Nic - I totally agree with what Maya said - well done on picking it up. Doesn't matter when you did, you have now and you should be commended. Many kids make it to primary school without any of it being noticed. Like the others, I know many kids who have had their tonsils/adenoids removed and have been changed kids after it. Most of them had speech/hearing issues. All boys too.

    Rory - glad to hear things are getting better for DH. Good luck for his jumpstart on Wednesday.

    Tali - I can imagine all these cars passing your sister with all that in the car LOL!!! Still not sure about TTC. The fact that I am still thinking about it means I probably will

    Maya - was up your way on Sunday and had lunch in Olinda at Immerse. Have you been there? Fantastic place, beautiful food and great staff. I am going to take DH up there for dinner one night. Definitely worth a trip.

    TT is a bit haphazard in our house. If Marley asks, then I put her on the toilet. She loves sitting on it and playing, singing etc but she will spend forever in there. Chelsea actually sat in there the other day and read her some books!!!! It looked hilarious. Chelsea loves helping her get her nappy off etc. I took a couple of photos this week, so will put them on FB when I remember. I am not too fussed about it yet, I would rather wait and push it more when the weather is better. I will just let her guide me, but knickers can wait for a while.

    If I do decide to have another baby, Marley will be such a mother hen. She has taken a real obsession with her baby doll and wraps it up, rocks it, puts it over her shoulder and pats it!!!! Not sure where she picked that up from as I don't have any friends with young babies. She might be a natural - its so cute to watch.

    A big woo-hoo for me - I GOT TICKETS TO WICKED I was going to get them a few weeks ago but decided to wait and I am so glad I did. They released new tickets and I got great seats. Our wedding anniversary is on 14th October and I got tickets for 15th which is a suprise for DH. He really wants to go to, hopefully he doesn't have the same idea as me LOL!!!

    Lunchtime - YIPEE! Better go

    Nic I don't know if you remember all the hassels I had about 2 and bit years ago, with Kailen's hearing and getting someone to listen to me and he paid the price of them not listen to mother's intuition. He had to get grommets and his adenoids out, and his hearing is great now, but he is behind in his english and mathematics because he couldn't always hear what was been said and for a long while he couldn't distigish between b's and v's. So I believe that you have done a great job in picking up on Nixon's problem and getting it fixed, your a wonderful mum.

    Tali I wouldn't be rushing Kai, she will be ready when she's ready, I think with Wyatt, we didn't get him TT until 2-3 weeks before his 3rd birthday. Cody does tell me when his nappy is off that he needs to wee so that's a big step for us, but I don't think I will do much until after it warms a bit and after bub is born.

    Mel yay for getting your tickets, I hope that you both have a wonderful night, not long now.

    Hi Maya, Bath and Rory.

    Sorry it's been so long between posts, but I've been feeling so over this pg and it's not how I want to feel been my last pg and all, I just want to enjoy it all, but I've got really bad hip and leg pain it's just not funny. Well only about 44 days to go, my BP has been behaving itself so far so I'm happy with that.

    It was Kailen's 8th birthday yesterday and he had a great day I think, we're having a family BBQ on the weekend and will be doing a nice cake for him then. We got him a Ben 10 watch and figurine and he loved them, he got to choose what he wanted for dinner and he wanted his daddy's meatballs and spaghetti so that was great, I just made him a marble cake for dessert as well.

    hugs xoxo

    Hi lovely Junies

    one day i will get time to get on here and do a post!

    just a quick one to say all going well here - Isla is fantastic, she is feeding and sleeping really well - usually only have to get up to her only once in the night! I'm sure that will change! The bf is going great - she is such a natural and no spewing which is fab after having Will as a reflux baby! The boys love her to bits and keep kissing and trying to cuddle her - only annoying when she's asleep!

    Amanda - wow only 6 weeks to go - i know what you mean about wanting to enjoy it being your last but being totally over it!

    Got to go - promise to be back soon and catch up with where you are all at.

    take care

    Julie x

    Hey Julie, Isla is gorgeous! And Amanda, long time so see! Hello EVERYONE, in fact

    DH is feeling better - his heart-jump start worked well but now he is on all sorts of drugs for the time being so life isn't quite normal yet. Though I thank my lucky stars it wasn't anything more serious.

    better go - very late and I am busy at work ATM

    ciao bellas

    great to hear from you Julie! thats fantastic that bf is going well and only waking once a night already!
    amanda- yeah i do remember when u went through that and getting grommets, now the more i know the more i am assoc with some of his behavioural things. he so often wakes cranky and takes a good 45 to an hr to come good. Today he went to sleep at 2pm i had to wake him at 5pm. he absolutley screamed the house down for 45min and was even slapping himself in the face??? its hard not to get frustrated with him but now i know there may be reasons for some of it i am trying to accomodate.

    im so physically exhaused atm had some blood tests but nothing come up. i have no motivation, i cant even pull myself to do general house work. then it comes to night and i cannot sleep. this mummy business is very draining some days!

    Nic I know how you feel your right this mummy stuff isnt as easy as people sometimes think.... I have many moments of feeling down and have the cant be bothered feelings i hope you start to feeling like your normal self soon....

    Julie so glad BF is going so well... Dont you just love 3rd babies they seem to just fit into the family so nicely...

    Rory good to hear that DH is on the mend still cant believe you have been so carm about it all....

    Amanda I hope you start to feel a bit better coming into the home run Its hard when all you want to do is enjoy the last PG and all you get in return is pain....

    Mel you will have to let me know how wicked is I would love to go and see it.... But BHL isnt into muscial theater...

    Hello to Maya Bath jaspen and jess where ever you may be....

    Well things here are going along nicely, TT is going really well she is now wearing her undies all day and we have been doing really well... She even went to my parents house yesterday ( 1.5 hr drive away ) without one mistake.... So proud of my baby girl... Not that she is a baby anymore She even had a dry nappy last night!!!

    Well BHL is tring to reneg on our agreement on having another baby seems to think the 3 we have is enough, some days I too feel like I am done ( not that I would EVER tell him this ) but other day the feeling of wanting another is just so strong I know I am not done... So hard to know what to do.... Sometime think I might write into Ann ann ( in womans day mag ) and see what she see's for us LOL not that you can live your life by what those people say....

    Well there was a HUGE work place accadent at BHL's work the day before he had to fly home.... The guy got crushed by a ton of chain, lost part of his scull and broke all his ribs which went through his lung, from what we heared he was it intecive care and doing ok.... BHL was ment to be down there helping out when it happened but he was talking to the kids Thank GOD but his best mate was the 1st one there and had to hold the guys head together until the medics arrived....Just scary as it really brings it home how short life is, and how quickly it can be taken away....

    HI all, just checking in- Things here are as hectic as ever, but doing ok. Starting to get settled into a routine of work/mummy stuff/ me time/ house work etc.

    Kids are doing well, Liam is finally starting to sleep through the night (woohoo) and Tori is as much a rascal as ever, she was busy smearing Yoghurt all over the table the other day, and DH said to her if you dont stop that I will take it away, and she looked him in the eyes and said "no way man, I dont think so!" I couldn't help myself I was in fits of laughter.

    Glad to see that everyone else is going well!

    Amanda - the countdown is on! I hope you find time to enjoy your last pregnancy but I can only imagine how hard that must be. Sounds like Kailen had a lovely birthday.

    Julie - great to hear things are going so well. It seems so true what lots of mum's say, the third baby just fits right in. Still not sure if I am going to test that theory out LOL!!

    Rory - great news on DH. I hope the medication keeps doing its job.

    Nic - chin up babe! My saying is keep smiling, always makes the day seem better. Maybe a dose of vitamins might give you the "pick me up" you need?


    Tali - Kai is doing so well on the TT front, what a great achievement going all that way with no accidents. Will let you know how Wicked is and hopefully you can convince DH to go. My DH loves the theatre and is usually the one buying the tickets, this time its my turn to surprise him. We are the reverse here, DH really would love another baby and I'm still not sure. I need to make a decision by the end of the year, can't keep this lingering as it will drive me crazy! How scary for that poor worker, both the one injured and the one who stayed with him. Hope he is OK. Thankfully DH wasn't down there at the time, the kids phone call came at the right time.

    Ali - good to hear from you. Sounds like things are going really well for you and the family. Great news that Liam is sleeping through, must make a big difference. Tori sounds so funny!!! I would have been laughing at that comment too!!!

    Just been out for lunch with some GF's and Marley had a great time playing, mainly on her own. She is happy to amuse herself which is good. She is becoming obsessed with The Wiggles. She has never been a child who watches much TV, ABC kids is always on in the morning but she isn't keen to watch it. All of a sudden, she keeps asking for Wiggles and I have a few old DVD's that Chelsea used to watch and she will happily watch all of that then get upset when its finished. I have no idea what has sparked her fascination.

    Hi to everyone and hope your all happy and well.

    I'm going to add to the flurry of posts today!
    Tali - good one for Kai and keeping her undies dry! Oscar had about 3 accidents yesterday - all at home, which was unusual, but that's ok. Today he's been really good with it, so it all balances out. Glad BHL was talking to the kids and being an attentive family man!
    Mel - Oscar is loving the Wiggles, too! Not as much as Bob and Choo Choo (Thomas), but he hears music and calls it 'Wiggles', runs around in circles yelling out 'Wiggles'. From a boy who went from no interest in TV, to wanting to watch Bob (all the time!), he's now a bit happier to diversify and gets very excited about Wiggles. I also borrowed a few Skippy DVD's a little while back from the local library, which he loved, so that's entered the vocab, too!
    Bath - I've been thinking of you, was great talking to you. Verity's boyfriend sounds like a nice introduction to the world of romance! And to think that I wasn't allowed to have a boyfriend till I was in uni (and by then I had no idea how to flirt so never had one till I was in my 20's anyway!), cos my parents thought if they let me off 'the chain' I'd turn into a teenage sex machine...I propose that there was a bit of projection going on there. Not only that, being so strict on such things, espousing abstinence and withholding information about sex is very counterproductive...I'm a perfect example of that! You are handling the situation nicely - no wonder Verity has a good head on her shoulders, despite her teenager moments
    Ali - great that things are settling down for you. I can't help thinking "Kids say the darndest things" when it comes to these kidlets. Very funny response to being told what to do! The other day in Aldi, Oscar was in the trolley and a man walked past us, coughing. When I was sick and coughing my guts up, he'd come into the bathroom, or poke his head around the corner with his head ****ed to one side and ask "you ok, mummy?"...it just about killed me every time he did it, and I'd say "yep, mummy ok, thanks Oscar". So, at Aldi, the man walks past coughing and Oscar turns around, ****s his head to one side and (you guessed it), asks "are you ok...hombre?" I fell over laughing and praising him because not only did he extend his concern to a total stranger, but he used the Spanish word for 'man' for good measure! The man didn't even notice, but it made my day, it was the sweetest thing. Anyway, the things they come out with as they are consolidating language skills will forever have me mystified!
    Nic - I hope you are closer to finding your mojo. Perhaps Chinese medicine or acupuncture could help if traditional avenues give no joy?
    I spent the morning with Oscar today and we got out the door really late to get to Spanish speaking playgroup. So, we missed the train, waited for the next one, caught it to the suburb it's in, walked about 10 mins to get there, stayed for about 40 mins (too late to catch the treasurer who takes the membership monies, as I'd already had my first free session about 4 weeks ago), walked back to the station, missed the train, bought a coffee, caught the next train back and dropped him off at MIL's. Kid loves his trains!! He was chatting the whole time and then wanted to play on the train tracks...ummm, no. We waved the drivers goodbye and they waved back - I guess they don't see a lot of appreciation day to day!
    Anyway, I think I really need to start journalling Oscar's days so that I don't forget the cute and clever things he does, for posterity.
    Gotta go, DP's back and I must be seen to be productive!

    Hi all, I'm getting there, not long to go and I'm counting the days, lol that's when you know that you've had enough.

    Kailen's birthday cake is in my photo gallery as well as a newer pic of my belly, which has dropped heaps, I've started get some of the mothers from mother's group taking a poll on how early I'll go, but I really don't think that I'm going to go early, I haven't yet.

    Cody's got really bad excema on his chest and I've been using the cortisone cream, but it's not really going so might go back and see what they say.

    hugs xoxo

    Hey Amanda, how you doing? your at about the gest when u started getting PE with Cody are you? is it staying at this time, hope so.

    Had Nixon's specialist appoint thismorning and he definatley has sleep apnea. We have booked in for his surgery to have tonsils and adenoids out on the 15th October.
    we need to do a hearing test on the 25th sept and this will determine whether grommets get put in at the same time.

    hope everyone is well.
    BTW for those who know Rac's she is currently still baking at 31weeks! (thats already 4 weeks further than when Ronan was born) so she is doing really well.

    I didn't realise how long it had been since I last posted - bit slack of me!!!

    Maya - Skippy LOL!!!! I bet watching it now you can laugh at how badly they positioned Skippy's paws. I used to love watching it and wanted to grow up in a national park. Maybe Marley and Oscar need a Wiggles day!!!

    Amanda - how is Cody's ezcema? Are you using Elecon? I am now getting the generic version which is so much cheaper. Hope it clears up for him, maybe the strength isn't enough to clear it? The cake looks fantastic but then again all your cakes look good. You belly looks so nice and neat!!

    Nic - at least you know whats going on with Nixon now and the surgery will fix it all up and he can catch up on getting some better nights sleep. You'll probably notice a big difference in him afterwards.

    Had lots of birthday parties on with Chelsea's school friends which have been taking up lots of the weekend. I have been starting to investigate ideas for her birthday in January and found this place that does circus parties where the kids learn trapeze, tightrope and other circus tricks. Sounds really good and you can go down and have a look and see them in action. They also run the program at schools.

    Marley is still being her mischevious self (but I wouldn't want it any other way!). She is one funny, crazy child and is always making me laugh. She is now giving me "squeezes" where she wraps her arms so tight around my neck she almost chokes me, then kisses me and say "ruv you" She is such a dag. She is loving Mini Maestros with all that singing and dancing, her favourite things.

    Hope everyone else and their beautiful bubba's are well. Better get back to work

    Good afternoon girls... witching hour here now so just another quickie:

    Maya: That is so cute Oscar speaking Spanish to that fellow!!! I can just imagine it! Well done on giving him the opportunity to learn another language at what many people would consider a very early age... it really does stick! Niall occassionally breaks into French and sings a few songs in French. I have a CD player set up near his change table and every morning after his shower he demands to hear this French CD... if I don't turn it on he yells at me: "TEACH YOUR BABY FRENCH!!!" (The name of the CD). It is sooo funny... makes me cave in every time Also thanks for the much needed chat last week. Yes Verity has made a good choice boyfriend-wise. I'm so protective of him too. He was basically abandoned by his parents when he was 3 months old... his paternal grandparents have raised him (he is 13, same age as Verity). DH and I got wind that he was being cyber-bullied a few months ago and we leapt to his defence... his grandparents are in their 70's and don't have a clue about the internet.

    Niall has gotten into the fridge and is sucking soya sauce fishes... yucko! betta go! Back soon.
