    Hi all

    Kas - you are so right about the photos. I take extra care to make sure that if we go to a friend's place for dinner or something I take the camera along and get them to take a few. I've managed to get at least one family shot every month that way. I try to get friends to take pics of me with Lucy too, as DP is hopeless... I take some of him with her occasionally, so that should cover all bases! Video is a lot harder though... We went to Pixi Foto this morning 'cause I had a cheap voucher and freebie photo for joining ABA. Lucy was at her smiley best, so I'm sure I'm going to be tempted to spend hundreds of $$ buying the whole portfolio! The idea is we get the freebie for my Mum's b'day next month and I scan it in to print off one for ourselves. I know you're not supposed to. Yay on Liam sitting up! Hehe at him tipping over to grab his toes. Lucy has only just realised there's something at the end of her legs, but she isn't grabbing them much yet. Giggles hysterically if I kiss her feet or pretend to eat them though.

    Must be off. Would you believe it, I've been helping DP work for half of the day and I'm now ready for a break!

    Hi All.
    So much going on with everyone's bubs it is hard to beleive that it was only around 6/7 months that we were all pregnant anticipating the arrivals!
    I have started Cailan onto some solid food, how much fun is it to watch their reactions to some foods?! He looks so funny sometimes but never spits anything out.
    I have been having alot of health problems lately, quick rundown - No periods, weight gain, v. bad headaches, my milk drying up, ongoing UTI, the list goes on. My GP finally has worked out why this is all going on and it only took a couple of blood tests to figure it out. My pituitary gland is not working! (P gland is the master of all the glands in your body.) I have to go see a speacialist in Broadmeadow, an endocronologist. At least I now have an exact reason why my milk dried up. I am so relieved that I finally have an answer to my headaches.

    Kas ~ How's your house plans coming along?

    I will write more personals later, must go get dinner on before it gets too late!
    Hope all ladies and babies are happy and healthy.

    Hi everyone, I hope you're all well and enjoyed your weekends.
    Steph, I'm so glad that your Dr has some answers for you - lets hope they can get you feeling better soon.
    Jen, thanks for mentioning pixi fotos. I found my vouchers so I should use the 6 month one before the end of the month. I hope that your new fence does the trick and your dogs are secured now. My cat likes to roam a bit and it worries me. He bought home a little bag of meat the other day. It was half frozen so he must have gone into someone's kitchen and nicked thier dinner. I felt so bad - how frustrating would it be to go to start cooking dinner and not be able to find the meat you left out?
    kas, I like the sound of your bludge day. We all need to recharge every now and then. I hope that Liam's finger keeps healing up. It sounds ouchy.

    Dh has just got home so I'll have to come back later.

    Hi everyone, I am soooooo bad! I have been posting on other threads, but I feel like I need a good 30 mins to read and reread your posts so that I can post back properly!

    Welcome to Bronwyn and your little girls, your girls are around the same age as my boys!

    I don't have the brain capacity to write a full post tonight, but just wanted to pop in and let you know that I am lurking and watching all of your bubbas progress! They are getting so grown up so fast! Sitting, rolling, moving, it is amazing! Cooper rolled twice from back to tummy today so I was really really proud of him.

    He is such a demanding little person for attention, but once he has the attention he is such a smiley boy!

    We had our first little accident between Campbell and Cooper on Friday, I was in the kitchen getting tea ready and Campbell was in the lounge watching wiggles and Cooper was on the floor having a kick and starting to progress to a whinge because no-one was paying any attention to him. Well Campbell decided that the big brotherly thing to do would be to pick Cooper up and bring him into me (not pick him up entirely but drag the blanket that hje was on) which was fine until he got to the tiles and then dropped Cooper's head onto the tiles!

    Well I did not have to say a word, Cooper was SCREAMING and Campbell was so upset that he had hurt Cooper that he ran to his room screaming and locked his gate to put himself inot punishment! In the end, Campbell was more upset than Cooper and it took longer to calm him down - he was only trying to help and that is the very first time he has tried to move him.

    Amyway, I will only have Cooper tomorrow, so I will come on then and write in more detail!

    A big hello to everyone!
    I have dropped DS1 off at preschool, sniff sniff. All my housework is under control and DS2/3 are both having a morning nap, it is so quiet here. Almost eerie.

    Dach ~ I couldn't help but have a little giggle @ your cat and the bag of meat. I can just imagine something like that happening to me and DH telling me I am going mad!
    The things that animals do sometimes. We had a dog out on the farm that used to bring home hares. She would bring them up to the front door and leave them there, it was almost like she was bringing them to us for dinner. Hows Imran and Yasin going?

    Kas ~ Yay for Liam rolling over so many times! He'll be up and moving in no time at all. I live about 2 hours from Newcastle, in a little town called Gloucester. We are classed in the MidNorth Coast. I am closer to Taree and Forster-Tuncurry but a lot of locals go down to Newcastle and Raymond Terrace shopping and to John-Hunter Hospital cos the one here hardly ever births babies (I went to Taree, closer for DH). I will be visiting Broadmeadow a fair bit in the next month because DS1, Archer has a hearing test down there this Friday, then I have my appt at the end of Sept. Plus wil have to travel down there for paediatricians appts for Archer sometime too because there isn't one in Taree. I have never even been there so I don't really know where I am going, I am hoping since DH has travelled down there with his footy that he knows how to get there! The house plans seem to be on the way there, which is great, I bet you are pleased.

    Relle ~ I hope Cooper is alright. Poor Campbell, fancy taking himself off to the naughty spot. DS1 was funny when DS2 came home he didn't know what to make of him and even threw a toy car at his head once. I can laugh about it now cos he said "share" then let the toy fly. DS2 had no idea what to do, cry or just look very shocked. DS2 has sat on Cailan's head and also tries to use him as a pillow when he is on the playmat. Let us know how he is going now.

    Hope all mums and bubs are happy and healthy.

    Hi all

    Steph - I'm so glad you have finally gotten an answer for your health issues and I hope that leads to some help soon. I used to live in Coffs Harbour, a bit north of you, but I know where you are (used to drive past sometimes on my way down south). It's so lovely up there! I really miss living by my beach... But it's good here too! Fancy your DS#1 going to preschool, I think there'll be tears from me the first time I have to do it with Lucy! I hope he had a good day and you enjoyed the mini-break.

    Relle - yay on Cooper rolling over, what a clever boy! I think Campbell sounds like such a sweetie and they'll have a lovely bond when they're bigger.

    Kas - clever Liam! Finally turning on his new party trick for his Mummy!! Hope the house plans passed through okay.

    Dach - had to giggle at your puddy tat! We had to teach our cat (when we had her) that we didn't appreciate her bringing home live mice for us to catch. Fortunately it only took a couple of attempts for her to stop.

    Must go, Lucy just woke up from a nap and I think the milk bar here is being called to business...

    Hi all,

    Congrats to Cooper and Liam for rolling over! All our babies are getting so clever. They will be crawling before too long!!

    Abby also rolled from tummy to back this week! It is very exciting. She is doing it everytime I put her down on her tummy! She has also started bringing her knees up under her. Shes now doing the arms out pick me up thing to everyone... she started it ages ago but it was just with my mum and me, but now she'll do it to anyone she knows. She has also started playing a little game! I hold her and DF (or anyone!) stands behind me and jumps out the way she is facing and says "i found you", Abby then does her silent giggle and truns her head to face the other way, DF will then pop out again and say it again and she just repeats it thinking its the best thing in the world. The really funny thing is that she plays this game with the mirror too- as in looks at herself, smile and turn away, then i spin around so shes facing the mirror etc etc

    Shes now on solids and loving it! Shes a great eater and hardly makes a mess!! Shes also learing some new sounds, more like da, boo, berr, ya, and ha. Its very cute. Previous to that it was all squeals and growls.

    Other than that, not much else is going on. Ive been feeling a bit out of sorts (headaches, bit sickly, tired), but cant really pin point the probelm. Eating great, exercising, sleeping...

    Abs still hasnt had her needles as her GP has been off for 2 weeks, so this week it is. Im a bit chicken to take her but they are way overdue. I also have to book in her heart scan this week and then we can put the heart murmer behind us.

    Jen, I checked out your website and I love Lucys pics. She looks like a sweet happy baby!!

    anyway, hope everyone is happy and feeling good!
    xx

    Just a quick post. For those of you who remember Sharon (Hope2006) whose baby Angus was born a couple of days b4 March (when she was due), you will also remember her Dad was diagnosed with cancer while she was pg. I am sorry to tell you that she has just let me know he passed away last week. Although still in shock and grieving she did get to say her goodbyes. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers...

    Hi all

    I'll pass on your thoughts to Sharon when I speak to her next week.

    How is everyone going?? Especially Tallon, Lucy insisted that I ask, Liz!! Just so that all the other girls know, he's now taken, Lucy decided she wanted him when she met him the other day! And no surprise, he's such a cutie. It took him a little longer to warm to Lucy (she's a bit forward, wonder where she gets that from?? LOL) but in the end her charm won out! It was so cute to see them reaching out their hands to each other. I love it now Lucy interacts with other babies and kids, so cute to watch.

    She doesn't seem to like adults as much. Sizes them up and then decides if she likes them. If she's in a good mood and isn't tired it's smiles all around, but sometimes that bottom lip starts quivering and she just wants me. No handing her around for cuddles with everyone.

    Unfortunately this week we got a note from MIL inviting us around for her bday lunch Sat. Typical, only wants to see her granddaughter for selfish reasons. Now that it suits her she's decided that after 5 months she's going to speak to us again. She's in for a rude shock if she thinks we're going to forget all the horrible things she said and let it go. As if it's ever going to be the way it was! Plus, if we don't stick to our guns re our boundaries Lucy will have to deal with this when she's older and the very thought makes me want to smack the stupid $%^&. I wouldn't let someone walk up to Lucy and hit her so I'm not going to let her own grandmother do exactly that emotionally. What's Lucy supposed to think if grandma chucks a tantrum and decides she suddenly doesn't want to see her every time she's upset with us? Especially since she makes up her grievances in the first place. Someone told me she sounded like she had a narcissistic personality and I think that's spot on.

    We aren't going around for lunch, we have other plans anyway. But we're going to call by the following Sat am for morning tea. That way we don't have to stay long. And if she thinks she's seeing us often after that she can forget it. DP is considering not inviting her to the christening.

    Anyway, enough venting. Hope everyone is well. Poor Lucy caught a cold from the meet up the other day, but she seems happy enough. Just a runny nose and waking up for an extra feed at 2-3 am. Guess she knows she needs to keep her fluids up, clever girl!

    Hi All,

    Its pretty quiet in here. I hope all the babies are being good!


    Jen-How is Sharon doing?

    Things are going great here. Big news from Abby. She has a TOOTH

    Its the bottom front one on the right, IYKWIM

    We did have a little trouble with it, and she cried for an hour and a half, but that was it. All good now (so far).
    It was the most she has ever cried. It was a bit sad. In the end she was hot and damp from drool, crying and spitting up. I took her clothes off, more bonjela, and as i was reaching for the nappy, the little cutie pie started laughing and rolling around in the nude! So, it ended on a happy note!

    How was everyones fathers day? We had a bbq for the whole family at our place and it went really well.
    Well, Abby is now awake... that was only about a 30 min nap!!! :eek:

    take care everyone
