    oh I meant to update everyone on DH as he has now seen a couple of specialists in the past week for his dizzyness that has now been ongoing for 8weeks! Well finally it has been diagnosed by 2 separate specialists that DH has had a virus that got into his ear and actually killed off some nerves linked to his balance. It is able to be rectified by simple exercises which will force his 'good' nerves to pick up the slack and take over the job of keeping him balanced. There is still the possibility of relapse when ever he gets run down, tired, sick etc but can then be handled by these simple exercises Gosh its such a relief to know that finally it is nothing sinister! Oh and on top of all that he managed to get a raging sinus infection so is on antibiotics but this is also messing with his balance....but even though its not that fun for him atm, its not keeping us stressed him being a bit off iykwim? So just thought I'd let you all know and thank you all so much for your love and support when I blurted out woffle about all this a while ago

    hello ladies,
    its been a big couple of weeks here lately,
    1. i got a new job. now i sell motorbikes. i love them so i thought i'd give selling them a go. so out of my comfort zone its not funny, its been a challenge but im slowly getting it.
    2. sorry to say this to those who dont agree, but we decided to try the controlled crying gig. four nights of tantrums and no dummy and we are now sleeping right through. it was very tough to leave Nate crying but we both made the commitment and it worked. he still has issues with waking up(grumpy(gets it from his mother)) and his still cat naps during the day.
    3. tree still in backyard- maybe this weekend

    ciao

    Charly - great to hear some answers with your DH *hugs*

    Dragonstorm... congrats on the new job!
    And we did controlled crying too and it worked at treat. Each to their own i say!!!

    Well last night was a success! first night since DD was 5 weeks old she has slept without a sleeping bag. I will put the sheepskin under the sheet today. But not a peep all night since she went to bed at 7pm.... and is still sleeping. She had no sheets o nher this morning but i placed one over her at 7am - when i snuck in.

    That's great PP, nothing like a good night's sleep .
    Lewis on the other hand outdid himself, he woke at 3.50am, I managed to resettle him for 40 mins and then he was bouncy bouncy, time to get up, at 4.30!!! I gave him his bottle and went back to bed, but the minute he finished it, he was shouting out, obviously ready to play So yet another early morning followed by a day at work Oh please let it just be his molars and not a new routine!

    Dragonstorm - DH would be so jealous if I told him, first go karts, now motorbikes, that's his dream life!

    Congratulations Charly on finding out what's wrong with DH! Must be such a relief!

    Also, congratulations Nate on getting your new job. I hope you're very successful in your new field.

    For all of you who are having issues with your little ones sleeping at night, I highly recommend 'Sleeping Like A Baby' by Pinky MacKay. Very much worthwhile reading.

    Sooooo tired lately. Feel like I've got chronic fatigue syndrome or the likes...

    Must go... lots to do.

    Dragonstorm - with you on the sleeping method! Did it right from the beginning with both my girls - DD#1 was sleeping through at 9weeks (8hours) and DD#2 was sleeping through at around 3&1/2 months (8hours) I agree with PP - each to their own but I am wishing that I could start the trend of not using a phrase that seems to draw such critisism however: "controlled crying" - gosh that phrase raises eyebrows doesn't it? Let's see, "Baby Sleep Training".....hmmmm, need to work on that one, lol! But that's fantastic with Nate sleeping through now! Woohoo! (for Nate & his mummy & Daddy!! ) and Congratulations on your new job!! So great to be dealing with things you love, good work! Hope it all pans out for you. Oh and re: tree......hehehehehehehe

    PinkPalace - oh my goodness!! How fantastic for Ashley sleeping through - and such a simple solution!! Hope it sticks for you, that's great! Funny enough, been considering the transition ourselves with DD as she can get her self in such a twisted muddle lol!

    MumofLewis - it is Lewis' molars so you don't have such early mornings followed by work

    Celsie - awwww hope you get much needed sleep and rest lovey


    Weeeeellllllll, guess what I did yesterday?!?!?! YUP!!! Target Toy Sales - AH WOOHOOOOO!!! *big goobey grin, hehe* I worked out that through the multiple book box sets I bought, there were 179 books, 93 of which will be for the girls!! Lol!! I loooooooove books!! Seeing as DD#1's birthday is in November I picked things up for her as well - wow she's going to do well, hehe. So she is getting the Charlie & Lola book of 5 stories, a Little Miss Happy Birthday book & the connect 4 game.....and for Christmas!! Soooo the girls are getting the Mr Men & Little Miss box sets as a combined present, a box set of Dr Seuss each (different ones), DD#1 is getting a 3 wheeled Dora Scooter and my favourite, lol, a Little Tykes Digital Camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How fuuuuuunnnnnn!! DD#2 is getting the Little Tykes Ride & Grow bike as well as a doll's pram.....then they'll both have stockings...............

    I feel like I fulfilled a long time dream yesterday as my sister came with me to do some shopping for her nieces, hehe, and by the time we got to the layby line (thank goodness we got their super early!) our trolley was piled so high with toys!! I loved it!! Never done that before and certainly will only be a once a year event but gosh my! It was so fun!! My sister and I are thinking we could make it an annual event, our day out, DH has the kids......

    ....so just in case you weren't sure..... I HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

    There were other gifties in the massive pile for my other nieces, nephews and the like, but was so fun to shop for the girls. Wooohoooo!! Now just the adults chrissy gifts to worry about.............. boring, hehe!


    Ok, must go retrieve remote controls from DD#2 and get dressed, hehe. Hope you all have a lovely day and fab weekend. Chat later,


    MWA!!!

    ..Oooh Charly, I'm tempted to nip out to Target myself now........The Little Tikes digital camera sounds great

    Celsie - Have you tried Floradix, I swear by it as a pick me up.

    We just went to the library for babies songs and story time, it was great, but what amazed me was how much Lewis walks when there are other kids to show off to!!! Cheeky imp was really strutting his stuff And he didn't wake up until 5.30am this morning. Still rubbish but a great improvement!!

    Can't say I've ever heard of it before Sarah, but I'll have a look for it at the chemist. Thank you.

    And he didn't wake up until 5.30am this morning. Still rubbish but a great improvement!!
    Well done! I think that's a great achievement. It's completely unrealistic to expect babies to sleep without waking for 12 hours straight. It's not like many adults do. I know I wake up a couple times in the night to have a drink or go to the toilet.

    Yes the camera is so so cute!! I had a few options - a sesame street one and a barbie one plus this Little Tykes one and this one won hands down!! Massive capacity, usb etc plus preview screen.......DD#1 is forever stealing people's digi cameras to take her own pics and when we went on holidays, she had a disposable camera and loved it. Plus now she wants to use mummy's pics to scrapbook with so I kinda need to protect those ones so figured if she can scrap book her own pics, we're on a winner! (you can google Little Tykes Digital Camera to get all the info on it) - great price too @ Target - usually $100 now $70!! Woohoo!! Also very cute as I was able to get a pink one for her, hehe. Ah so girly

    Celsie - Floradix is an iron medicine with added vitamins and herbs, it's really good. Costs about $20 though but worth it.
    Regarding Lewis's sleeping, he actually does sleep through normally from 7am-6am, it's just this week he keeps waking up earlier and earlier. But as I say 5.30am was a great improvement, so hopefully it was just a phase. Am going to have an early night just in case, although it's actually got more to do with my new electric blanket that seems to be calling my name.......

    Oh, I'll have to ask for it when I go in the chemist next. I take iron supplements anyway, as I'm vegetarian, so it would just mean switching brands. Thanks!

    hi mum of lewis - they keep changing thier sleeping habits dont they!
    the past 2 nights we have had good ones. Ashley is in bed later (as we have had busy mornings and get to her bed at 2-3pm in the arvo) so she has gone down about 8pm until 7am... which is nice. But the other night (tues/wed) she woke at 12midnight and played tll 3am.... omg!!

    HOw are you celsie?

    I justbought a nappy bag....my first ever. Now ashley is in cloth nappies, and eating i thought it wold be easier with a newborn due soon to havea bag with compartments. It is just a cheapy - Ryco from target 50% off but i am happy

    hey everyone

    firstly a huge huge happy happy birthday to all our June (and early July) bubs - I hope all the mums and dads are proud of themselves as well for surviving the first year - I know I am

    we haven't dropped off the planet - just my internet - I have internet at work but it blocks message board sites so its such a pain - I have missed you all!

    well life with Jackson is chaotic as usual - he's now in day care 3 days a week as I've gone back to work full time - he loves it but its such a pain that he picks up every cold and cough that goes around (and hand foot and mouth the week after we got back from San Fran - not nice I tell you!!!!)

    so with all the colds and stuff he hasn't maintained much of a decent sleeping pattern - we'll get 6-7 nights of great sleep then he'll be getting a tooth or have a cold and it will go to the dogs again - oh well we will get through it I'm sure

    we've recently started going to a toddlers class on a Saturday called art and move - its brilliant (we couldn't find much else we could do together on a weekend in the terms of structured play classes so me and a friend begged this woman to run a saturday class for us!!!)

    congratulations to all the pregnant mummies and lots of sticky baby dust to those TTC - you're very brave - the thought of #2 sends me into a sweat!!!

    well I"ll come back again soon and catch up on all the news
    Love and hugs
    Mel

    by the way - is Jackson the only one not walking - he does lots of walking around furniture but won't let go for anything - he's the only one in my mum's group not walking as well - oh well he'll get there eventually I hope!

    Hey mel_thekiwimum!! Lovely to hear from you! And no! Jackson is not the only one not walking - DD#2 will hold our fingers and walk but not on her own.....she too shuffles around the furniture at lightning speed but she has only just recently taken to standing on her own for a few seconds at a time.....the proud as punch smile she does with her hands in the air is too cute! So yes, don't worry......all bubbies at their own pace I say (oh and DD#1 was 13&1/2 months before she took her first steps too, so older than DD#2 atm)

    And awwww on getting all those colds n stuff, especially hand foot & mouth! Oh that must've been terrible! I hope his health stints lengthen so you get more sleep!!!

    Hey Mel, great to hear from you, glad you are both well. No Lewis isn't walking yet even after taking his first steps 3 weeks ago! He will walk about 4 or 5 steps but then start crawling again
    However on a good note, the last 2 nights he has gone back to his good old sleep routine of 7pm-6am, so it must have been his molars giving him grief after all.

    Not much other news really. Oh yes, when I ask him where is his book, or where is Percy he will go and get them now, it's really cute.

    Roll on spring so we can get out and about a bit more.......

    Just had to pop in to tell you a couple of really cute things Caeleb is doing at the moment that makes my heart melt!

    Firstly... he's stashing things. Example: He's got a ride on fisher price car which he loves to stash socks and stuff under the seat. Or, I found a wooden ring in one of DH's slippers and a plastic orange in the other one. Awwww.......

    Secondly - he's learning to pick up his toys and put them away when he's finished. I tought him that the toys need to go "Night Nights", so he had to put them in their beds. He went around and picked up all the ball from his ball pit and threw them back in and then got his animals from his Old MacDonald tractor and put them on the back. It was so sweet. Just goes to show, they really do understand more than we think.

    I just love my little boy. He truly is the sweetest little thing. So loving. *Celsie melts into a puddle of gooey happiness**

    Oh and Charly - did you notice... the new play equipment at the park?!? Not allowed on yet... but next week, we're there!!!

    Awwww Caeleb is too cute!! So funny about stashing things! Lol about DH's shoes!! Oh that is simply adorable!!

    MumofLewis - and awwwww on knowing who Percy is! Isn't it just amazing when it is just so obvious they our little ones get what we are saying?!

    Yes, they are certainly smart little munchkins aren't they?! DD#2 also helps tidy......and untidy, hehe, much to big sister's frustration, lol. If we sing, "Old MacDonald had a farm..." DD#2 will sing, "E-I-E-I-E-I-E-I...." - hasn't quite gotten the "O" out yet, hehe. And the playschool song, "Put on your hat, la-da-di-da-di-dah, put on your haaaaat" DD#2 will sing, "da-da-da-da-da-da"

    And so exciting on the playground Celsie!!!!! DD#1 saw it today and is now chomping at the bit to get there. Now you didn't happen to go check it out today did you?!?!?!?!? As I drove past and saw a couple coming out of the gates. I said out loud, "Oh my goodness! Was that Celsie?!?!" And DD#1 is all confused wondering who the heck I am talking about! I feel a play date coming on!!!!

    Teepee & Serenity - how are your little princesses sleeping now?? Hope you're getting some rest yourselves xx


    Well happy sad moment today - last morning of bf for DD#2 and then that's it I think I am definitely ready for the next phase but leaves me wondering if I am ever going to do the whole bf again. DD#2 is so ready though, playing with booby is not actually helpful in getting the whole drinking scenario happening. No I am not a toy But will certainly make breakfast time a little easier, particularly for DD#1. Bless her cotton socks she is so patient in the morning

    PinkPalace - any news on whether you'll have to move before bubby#2 makes their grand entrance?!?


    Well, hope everyone else is doing really well and are having an absolutely splendid weekend..............gawd, that was a bit posh wasn't it!? Anyways, back later xx


    Mwa!!
