    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ABBY!!!



    Congratulations Mum, on doing such a great job for the year! Hope it seems like a million years ago that you were having problems with drs and hospitals... Enjoy a break from work and hope you guys have a wonderful birthday party.

    Well, just a quickie from me, I'm going to be spending the evening packing and we move on Monday. I'll be offline for a day or so until I can unpack and reconnect everything, but I'm sure I'll be so busy I will hardly notice!

    Wish us luck, you all know how much fun moving is!!

    Oh Steph, sorry about poor Cailan. It can take weeks for little tummies to recover from gastro - hopefully he is at the end of it soon.

    Good Luck with the move Jen.

    Only a short one from me - had a long day, and I think Beth is cutting more teeth. Such a cranky pants ALL day long and up most of the night too. So tired!

    back soon...

    Hey guys Yay to all our babies turning 1!! OMG that year went fast!

    Well, not a lot of news.. Tallon walks around the house like a little champ now. LOL. There is NO stopping him! He still hasn't worked out how to stand himself up on his own yet tho.. still needs to pull himslef up on furniture or something.. but he doesn't fall down as much now.. so not much need atm! hehe. Still no new teeth, still sitting on 8 teeth. Had swimming today.. and he hated it It's getting worse each time. Not sure why.. hopefully he'll start liking it again soon. We're going again tomorrow for a catchup lesson coz we missed last week's. DH will see him swim for the first time, so I hope he's not as miserable tomorrow. He had his 12 month needles on Wednesday, so that could be a part of it I guess.. he's been whinging all night tonight.. little pain. heh. He hasn't needed any panadol or anything with these needles tho, so that's good.

    Good luck with the move Jen! I know all too well the joys of moving.. I hope it all goes smoothly for you.

    Steph - I hope Cailan is feeling better. Poor little man

    OK.. should go and get some shuteye - Tallon's only JUST gone down for the night.. he's been a bundle of energy all night. Aah well.. at least we can all sleep in in the morning.

    Thanks everyone! Cant believe my baby is a number!!!

    And jen, nah, it seems like yesterday that i was pregnant and going back and forth about this and that... on a happy note, it seems like yesterday that we got our first look at out baby and we fell inlove... and now she is a big kid... chucking tantrums, giggling and blowing kisses.....

    Its been a great day, tho very low key as the party is tomorrow. Its almost midnight and we are still cleaning... tho on a little break. Thank god for wine and Abbey Road as its making the cleaning seem like not such a bad job... and its stopping me from freaking out. Apparently ive been a bit on edge the past couple of days.... I am having my first ever "thing" at my place and there is over 25 people coming!!!

    Abby is going great. Eatting lots of different foods (when i let her, still working on that whole choking thing). Shes pulling hersef up on everything and starting to let go every now and then, tho she is very careful. As for talking, well not much going on ther. says hello for everything and ofcourse there is dad dad dad!! My mum and sister tell me shes not talking cos she doesnt have to, as in we do everything for her and get her everything... well i dont know... maybe thats the case but im in no hurry for her to grow up and its not like shes a 5 year old that cant talk or anything... hahah making excuses!! She does things when shes ready. Shes so smart.. she can pick out all the things i ask her to in her word book, and she learns new games quickly and understands what we ask her to do etc so im not worried that she wont talk to me!! haha

    ok well, break time over, time to pull out the mopp! fun stuff....

    Happy Birthday Abby!!!!
    Hope you have had a wonderful day with lots of beautiful smiles for everyone!

    Cailan is alot better thanks everyone! He seems to have gotten over it quite well, he is being very cheeky and standing alone and has even taken a couple of steps. I am sure he'll be taking off in no time. He already chases his brothers when they are playing but gets left behind cos they run faster than he crawls. Very cute.
    Take care all mums and bubs and hope to catch up with you all soon.

    Steph- great to hear Cailan is feeling better!!

    Abby's party was PERFECT!! It was fantastic. She stayed awake the whole time, after only having a shirt 30min nap in the morning. She was a little star, giving everyone some of her time. She looked beautiful in a party dress my SIL gave her just before the party.

    She got heaps of presents... dont know where we are going to put them all!

    She can say 3 new things, mum, nan nan nan, and num nums (what we call her food, as in 'do you want some num nums? dont ask me why... it comes from mum)

    When i was having another child seemed to be on everyones mind, with comments coming from all directions Its hard to say no time soon without sounding selfish, i dont want ppl to think i dont enjoy being a mum.

    Anyway, i think Miss Apple-Cheeks has just finished off a stinki poo for me to change

    Hope everyone is happy and well....

    what are all our babies eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner? just after some ideas...

    Hi Everyone

    Yes I am still around just not on BB very much at all. We are all good though!

    Have had the big first birthday on the 11th which was lots of fun but EXHAUSTING! Noah is great, crawling everywhere and trying very hard to walk but not quite there.

    I have him down to one BF a day as I am trying to wean him. We want to try for another baby soon, which means back to the fertility clinic and the drugs I have to take mean I can't be breastfeeding. I'm a little sad to be giving it up for Noah's sake, but to be honest I don't think he's that concerned!

    So glad to hear everyone and their bubbas are good.

    Talk soon.

    Hi girls

    Just a quick one before I dive into some more unpacking... Moved successfully but don't get me started on how horrendous the whole thing was. I think I'm going to have to die here or be on holidays for the next one. At least the new house has enough rooms for me to have a whole tribe of kids, so I can see no reason why we can't stay!

    Lucy has cut another two teeth, on the top, her right eye tooth and the one in the middle next to that. Might as well throw the book away on the order teeth are supposed to come through. She has four on the bottom as well. No hassles, just didn't want her dinner for a night. She's settled in fine and thinks climbing in and on boxes is great fun. Her big new playroom with all of her toys out is also a hit.

    Amy - great to hear from you! Glad Noah's bday went well and a huge congratulations on bfing him for so long! I'm sure he'll barely notice when it's gone, since he's about to start walking he'll be far too busy to worry. Good luck with the fertility treatment for #2. How long were you on it before conceiving Noah, if you don't mind me asking?

    Em - glad to hear Abby had a good bday, I hope you got some good photos of her in her party dress. Don't feel selfish saying you're not sure about TTC#2 yet, I think it shows you're enjoying Abby so much you want to spend as much one-on-one time with her as you can. And then you can do the same with #2. Not selfish at all. Unless you're planning on having half a dozen more then I don't think you should feel any pressure! We've been telling ppl since Lucy was born that #2 will be years away so have avoided any qns on that front. So far, anyway. As for your qn regarding food, Lucy has weetbix and toast at breakfast, risotto/pasta/sandwich/noodles/leftovers/whatever-I-can-make-in-a-hurry plus fruit at lunch and similar for dinner (except usually with more vegetables) plus yoghurt and snacks on fruit, corn thins and the occasional arrowroot or wheatmeal biscuit. Hope that helps, but I will admit when I have more time I need to pull out all of the recipe for kids books I've been given!

    Bye for now, off to get a million things done before Lucy wakes.

    I know about the moving, it sucks so much. We have just sold our house and moved in with my parents while we build. So we are half unpacked for about another seven months! It's exhausting work but sounds like your house is awesome and loads more room for Lucy.

    It took us two years to conceive Noah (one year trying ourselves and then one year of fertility treatment etc.) so we're keen to get at it again. Although I only got my period back three weeks ago - I never thought I'd be happy to see it!!

    Take care all.

    OMG.......... Firstly a very Happy (and very belated for some) Birthday to our our little people . Liam would personally like me to wish Lucy, Tallon, Cailan, Noah, Abby, Tayneesha and Beth all the best for year ahead. I hope i didn't miss anyone - if i did i am sorry!

    I am having all sorts of issues actually get on the computer ATM because it is in the same room as Liam and when he is asleep it disturbes him. When he is awake he tries to "help"!!!! Thanks to his "help" DH has had to fix the computer as Liam likes to click and drag and thinks the lights at the reboot and on/off switch are pretty when thay flash. Needless to say this is one reason i have been MIA.

    Liam is getting better and gets anywhere from 3-6 steps in now before falling over.
    He finally cut his first tooth last week at 13 months. It is still coming but he loves running his tounge over it. It has caused DH and I all sorts of grief as it has been a mission and a half to get him to bed at night (sometimes over 2 hours before asleep) and he has been waking during the night due to the pain and discomfort. I hope they are not all this bad. From memory Brad's didn't cause too many probs just mainly off his food. I have been trying the controlled crying but now with this tooth distressing him it seems just too mean to leave him in pain and alone. I will get back to it once he settles down.
    I weighed him at home yesterday and twice he was 7.9kg and once 8kg. He has an officail weigh in next week so we will see how that goes.
    BF morning and night still, with cows milk at lunch or on the very rare occassion I am not home when it is bedtime he has a bottle and i top him up when i get home- mainly just to relieve myself so i am not too full in the moirning. Plus i don't want to risk him going without and then deciding he has had enough. I am definately holding on more then he is to it. it is my last link with my baby , except for the nappies, teeth.........blah blah. I guess cause its only my connection with him IYKWIM.

    Ok my :helper: is here and causing all sorts of issues. and brad wants more food.
    I will catch you all later, Take care.

    Hi all,
    Hmmmmm, it must be me. Every time i pop in everyone stops chatting....I'll start to get a complex..... ...Ha ha

    Liam had his official weigh in today and - W-7.85kg L-69.5cm HC- 43.9. The clinic lady has finally given in that Liam is just small and she sees no reason to worry herself a obout it anymore...however "bring him back in three months and we will check on him again!"

    We are now mobile. Liam prefers to walk most places now and only crawls when he is in a hurry. The most steps we have had were about 20. He thinks he is soooo clever and Bradley loves to stand Liam up and call him and when he walks over they give each other a huge huggle (our hug/cuddle word) and Brad tells Liam how proud he is of him

    Off to the shops to get a few things and to grab a coffee before brad gets home from school so I hope you are all well, Bye for now

    I am here too but didn't have much to report til now....
    We are all full of a head cold, nasty. Had DS1 awake on and off all night, it was terrible. He was just screaming, cos he could hardly breathe due to blocked nose, every time we spoke to him he would scream more. I held him, the first word I uttered he was off my knee like a shot and over to Tony. Same thing happened with Tony, he couldn't make up his mind who he wanted to be with, Mum or Dad. Hopefully tonight is better.
    I have had my scan done, tubes are in good condition but one ovary is enlarged. Will know more once I have seen the Gyno. Don't know when that will be cos the Doc seems to be stalling a little. I asked if the enlarged ovary was a problem and he told me that if I had no abnormalities with my periods then it wouldn't be a problem but since I did have abnormalities it is a problem, but he doesn't know what and will have to wait to see the Gyno. He then told me he would refer me next visit. Doesn't make sense to me to wait but he's the Doc so I am listening to him. Well all from me for a bit, hopefully can do personals soon.

    Kas ~ Great to hear Liam is off and running and that the health nurse is happy with him. He'll catch up on a growth spurt sometime and soon he will be towering over you.

    Liz ~ Any news on TTC yet? My fingers have been crossed for you!!!

    Hi girls!!

    So sorry I have been seriously MIA, but have some very good reasons. We moved okay and am starting to get on top of everything. My Mum came down for a week last week to look after Lucy for me so I could have a serious stab at picking up new clients. Worked, I had meetings every day and signed up a new project on Friday, as well as a 'more than likely' on Thursday, so very happy with that. As long as I have enough work I will be getting a nanny in to help look after Lucy, much more convenient and allows me extra hours to work so in the end wouldn't end up costing much more than going to childcare. Lucy loved having Nana here and put in a real effort to do some new things for her!

    Lucy is now talking heaps more, she says 'hello' and holds her toy phone up to her ear, too cute. She learnt to clap and now claps herself whenever she thinks she's done something clever. She's also learnt to throw and kick a ball and that keeps her going for ages! She tells the dogs to go 'out' of her bedroom. She's trying to copy a lot of the words I say to her now, I have a feeling she's going to be a bit of a chatterbox.

    On the bad news front, I woke up last Tuesday night with pain in my dodgy right eye, only to find in the morning it was no better and saw blurry. Went to the optometrist who sent me straight up to the eye surgeon (never a good sign when you're sitting there and he gets the specialist on the phone and I get straight in...) who has confirmed the back of my cornea is b$ggered. Have to see how bad it is once the membrane heals, but he gives me a 70% chance of needing a cornea transplant. Thankfully it is no longer painful and I can still see well enough to drive/read, etc, but it's the worst thing that could have happened to the cornea. I've had a condition for years and we've known about it, but this was so unlikely to happen that I never expected it. My op says he's treated about 200 ppl with this condition over about 20 yrs and this is only the 2nd time he's seen it happen. Should go and buy a lottery ticket.

    Anyway, we're getting used to the idea and I see the eye surgeon again on Wednesday to plan ahead. Seriously hoping the transplant can happen later in the year when we're not so busy as it's 6 weeks of recovery and I don't know how that's going to impact work, etc. In the meantime, I don't see as well as I should, but that's no biggy.

    Be back again a bit more frequently now it's all slowed down. Hope everyone else is doing well, Steph, hope you're over your colds. Lucy has one too, and of course woke up during the night for most of last week!

    Hi there, abbadabbadoo aka Jodi (Abby's mum). live in eastern suburbs in sydney. DD - 6/3/06, i will be 30 in sept and hubby 40 in sept, big party for both of us!! work part time....Abby is up and walking around all the time, still breast feeding which is a huge plus for me as i was having lots of probs at the beginning with my milk supply but thanks to a fabulous laction consultant and motillium Abby enjoys 2 breastfeeds/day, (i have just stopped her lunch feed and she now has milk from a cup). just this last fortnight Abby has started to sleep thru (finally) but we stay in room (either sitting near door way still in her view or next to her cot) til she falls asleep tho..i 'm really looking forward to breaking this habit and her putting herself to sleep.....
