    Yeah, the ol' undies on the head trick... Lucy knows how to open drawers and doors and some of the best ones are the bedroom drawers that have all of my underwear. I thought it was so funny the first time she walked out with my knickers on her head that I took a photo. Funnily enough, she keeps doing it! And her clothes are constantly strewn throughout the house. Better than the stuff in the kitchen, though! She brings me her own slippers when they come off to put back on, but hasn't yet decided to start taking anything off. If she's playing and takes her hat on and off outside, she gets taken back inside, so I think she's getting the idea that isn't the best way to play... No tears when I do it, I'm kind of wondering when any of my discipline is going to be effective!

    Hi girls, Just surfing the net and thought i would pop in and say hi to everyone. I hope you and your families are all well.

    Everyone here is doing well. Glad Brad is back at school and getting back to being in a routine- he needs it. He is hoping it doesnt rain on saturday so he can actually play his first official game of soccer - he had a bye the first week and got washed out last week so . ETA - Brad did really well and enjoyed the game but they lost 4 Nil.

    Liam and self settling slowly getting there. His latest trick is to have hands and feet on the floor and with his head either on the floor or close to he looks back through his legs. He thinks it so funny. I think he looks cute with his little tushie up in the hair!!!! Oh and he has definately found his doodle!!!! I won't go into that but i am sure you understand what he is up to .

    DH and I are off to a formal 30th birthday friday night for a girl DH works with. Its kids free so i will be at a loose end. I know most of the people he works with and they are nice but i have little in common with the other women as 95% of them have no kids. The guys are nice too and will talk kids but mainly the blokey stuff. House is a day or two away from lock up stage and then the internals begin.

    Anyway my pillow is calling, so goodnight

    Hi girls

    Kas, Liam's antics sound very cute. Bet you're enjoying having the time just with him now Brad is back at school. I take it Brad is a very active five year old! Hope his soccer game goes ahead on Saturday, I just think the littlies are so cute running around in their uniforms!

    As for us, I've got another bout of mastitis, but I guess I can't complain too much as I haven't had one for 8 mths. Really sick on Saturday, but the antibiotics kicked in by Sunday and I'm fine now. Seriously hoping it doesn't happen again soon! Lucy is doing very well but not helping me when I'm trying to work! She comes over if I'm at the computer for any length of time and lifts up my shirt to tickle my tummy! I do it to her so I guess she thinks it's funny. Kinda cute, but not helping! I have a couple of new clients coming on board now and I'm thinking of getting a nanny two days a week to help out. That would give me three days of being able to work a bit more freely with Lucy still going to my gfs on a Monday. But I'll make a decision next week...

    I also put Lucy's name down for preschool next year at a nice little preschool down the road. They only cater for 13 kids in her group and 13 from 3-5, with plenty of teachers. It's only a couple of years old and looks all nice and new still. I think she'll be ready in Feb next year, she already loves socialising without me!

    Must go and get some work done while she's having a nap.

    Hi all.
    Jen - i hope the mastitis has cleared up- there is nothing worse is there! I am sure Lucy will love going to pre school next year. It seems so far away, it seems hard to imagine where our little ones will be at by then...more scary than anything else though!!

    I think Liams top two teeth may be on the way. He is off his food AGAIN and very restless at night. His gums seem a bit swollen but i cant feel any teeth as yet.

    He has pretty much cut down to one sleep in the middle of the day which lasts between 1 1/2 ann 2 hours. He wakes about 7:30am and back to bed between 8 and 8:30pm.

    Still a booby boy morning and night and the foods of the week are sultanas and rice bubbles. He loves DH's pancakes that he makes if he is not working on the weekend and the other day had his very own, all to himself, first time ever iceblock...a Callipo. He managed to get through half. He had some lovely facial expressions to start with, prob cause of the lemon flavour ( i didn't think that over too well!!) but thought he was so clever.

    The 30th DH and I went to last week was good and the kids behaved for mum and dad. Next week are going to my bosses place for a games night with the rest of the staff and any friends that want to go. That should be a great night out.

    Brad had a pupil free day today so they did all the mothers day stuff yesterday. He couldn't wait till sunday to give me my pressies so i got them yesterday. A lovely portrait of myself, a card that inside they fill in all about mum. Apparently i am beautiful and like to go to work, play racing cars and like sandwhiches. I also got a crepe paper flower and from the stall ($2) i got a tea light candle and holder in a lovely little bag.

    Ok, i must go Brad "needs" a train set built in his room whilst Liam is asleep so i had better go and help him.

    Hi to everyone and i hope all is well.

    Hi guys. I feel bad, I've neglected this thread Too busy with my belly buddies!

    Well, a quick update on us. Tallon has been in his big bed for a while now. Altho he's slept with us the last few nights coz I feel sorry him being in his cold room on his own LOL. He's actually slept right through the last few nights too, so it's tempting to keep him in our room so we can keep getting sleep! hehe. He has his day sleeps on his big bed tho no probs.

    Oh, and being the proud mummy that I am, I must boast that Tallon knows the sounds of nearly all the letters in the alphabet I think there's about 5 he hasn't done yet. We have a dr seuss ABC book, and we can just flip over each page and he does the sounds unprompted. I think it's very impressive! LOL.

    Still not talking a lot. He says bird and ball, but only in a language that mummy & daddy can understand hehe. Signing is going great guns, so he's very well mannered and asks for things nicely using signs. I truly think it's helped with potential behaviour problems, coz he doesn't have any frustrations when talking to us, even tho he's not really talking yet!

    Food - OMG he's a PIG! I can't believe how much he eats at the moment. Must be growing! He eats anything and everything too. No fussiness here (yet!).

    OK, must go, he's woken up.

    Hope everyone is well

    Hi girls

    Liz, i've neglected the thread too, only my excuse is work. Hope the pg is going well and you have every right to be proud of your clever little boy!

    Lucy is going through a piggy stage again as well. She had a touch of a cold last week and went off her food a bit, but is back to normal now. I've had to up her weetbix intake to one and a half in the morning, before her toast. She also has a little bit of tea (with milk) in a mug, loves it.

    I haven't done much of the signing thing, but she does know 'food', 'boob' and 'drink'. Which really takes out anything Lucy can get whingey about! Not being allowed to get into things when she wants to are her major frustrations, and she is so cheeky. We picked up some stuff for her on Freecycle and her favourite is this great Fisher Price dolls house. I am constantly making sure she doesn't climb on it and the cheeky thing looks at me to make sure I'm watching before she tries. Then she laughs her head off at me when I say no and get her off! So much for discipline...

    Must go, more work to do. Lucy is off at playgroup with her nanny for a couple of hours and I shouldn't spend them all on bb.

    Default Long Post Girls

    Hi Girls,

    Long time no Post Oops! Well i am in my last stages of pregnancy for number two and i must admit i have been very very tired. I can't wait till she is out!
    NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED THEN BUT IT POSTED WITHOUT ME PRESSING ANYTHING......?????

    Well Miss T is well adavnced for her age, she can climb out of her cot in the middle of the night and come down to our bedroom not just by herself but with her Dolly that Mum and Dad bought her in Europe and all you here is Mum Mum Mum at the side of our bed!!! She has hissy fits if she does not get her own way. She also pulls her nappies off as well which is just terrific too. Daycare has told me that she is so advanced that in the next month they are going to put her into the toddlers room. Aparently she likes to be Miss little boss in the nursery and rocks the babies to sleep in there cots and feeds them you name it she does it. Cute thats for sure but full on too!

    She loves to go to Shayla's room now and pull out all of her clothes from the draws and carry them around the house and she also does this with our dirty washing basket as well - she seems to like Jocks on her head! Weird child........

    She will also stand at the fridge door and stomp her feet and whinge for food when she is hungry or wants a bottle - at least we know when she wants food i spose! She will hand me the pegs to hang out the clothes once washed and if she doesn't do that she trys to steal the clean washing and put it on her head and walk around with it laughing and carring on.

    The cutest thing though i must say we had a drs check up the other day for her ears (will tell you that in a minute) but there was a little 12mth old girl and a 16mth old gilr there so Miss T decides she will go up to the 12mth old and grab her hand and give her cuddles and kisses and then she did the same with the other girl it was so cute. All the grannies were nearly in tears. So at least she has a kind heart and will make a great big sister.

    Ears - she has trouble with the draining of her ears so she has been antibiotics for the last mth or more she is booked in to see a specialist 2/7/07 and if need be she has to have day surgery for grommets. So i am hoping this does not have to happen as i am due to give birth 22 - 26/6/07 on the 24/6/07 we have a check up for her at the drs then we go to the specialist so i hope to god i have had the new baby before all of this cause god help me if i haven't. At least mum and dad will be here to help i spose.

    Miss T has also discovered toilet paper and how to roll it all off the toilet roll and play with it, she rips it into shreds and leaves it lying all around the house. She also gets into all the cupboards that don't have child locks on them. The most embarrising thing was when the next door neighbour came over and we were talking and the next minute Miss T walks out with a packet of condoms from the bedroom draw and says Mum Mum Mum and hands them to me! I had no idea of what to say but " kids they just get into everything".

    Well i won't babble for too much longer but we bought her a playswing set from the shops on Sat and my god that was not a waste of money. If she goes on the swing, slide all of that she is happy but she can't be on it all day etc. So we take her off and the kicking of the legs and the screaming starts it is just pathetic. I am thinking of taking it back. She loves to read books and play girly things like dollies and cups of tea etc. She even trys to feed dolly her milk and food for gawd sakes!

    I have bought a potty for her as well as she seems to want to sit on it, i am not pushing this at all just getting her use to sitting on it as i really don't think she can tell when she needs to go to the loo? So all in time i suppose.

    Liz - well done to Tallon on abc and sign language, i have not done the sign language but Miss T seems to do it in her own way which i have learnt. But you should be very proud of him smart cooky he is!

    Jen - Gosh you sound very busy with your work thats for sure but i spose thats a good thing Yeah!

    Well must go now Miss T wants to play and dance etc etc.

    Hi girls

    Hope you're all doing well. Jen, I hope the rest of this pg goes quickly for you, must be hard to keep up with an active toddler and cook another at the same time! It is good that I am busy with work, especially since it means I can get extra help around here. Plus, we've started thinking about how much $$ we need put away before I can have another baby. Given that we know how much it affected my working having Lucy. So it's all fitting in with our 'master plan' of waiting another couple of years.

    Liz - how are you doing? Are you going along to the Baby expo this week? I'm hoping to be able to, must check the NSW members page to see when everyone else is going.

    Kas - how's the house coming along?

    Steph - how are you going? When's the reversal happening for you? Thinking of you and hoping everything is going well.

    Hi to everyone else.

    We've been slack about posting in here, my excuse as per usual is being busy with work. Lucy is growing up so quickly. Not at all into 'girly' things yet, but there's a definite difference between her as a girl and her little friend Hunter (12 mths) as a boy. I swear that child (although a pretty sedate kid) manages to find something potentially dangerous every time he is here! Last week he pulled a knob off the front of the stove, after turning the gas on and I couldn't get it turned off! The week before he stuck a stick up his nose and made it bleed. And he throws things, thankfully not yet into the pool, but they're coming close... Lucy is active, but somehow manages to avoid gassing us all or needing the emergency room!

    Lucy learnt to sip from a straw on the weekend, after watching me. I was very impressed, now it means she can use a straw cup (and Hunter can't walk around splashing everything with her normal cup!). She also figured out how to ride on her little ride-on car, only facing backwards to be different. It was too cute, she did it on Friday while Hunter was here and I got it on video. She hopped on and started pushing it along and Hunter went behind her, grabbed the handlebars and helped. They were both giggling away, so pleased I keep the video camera handy!

    Well, must go, back to work. Not terribly interesting work today, but you gotta do what you gotta do...

    Hi all ,
    Jen 13- House slowly getting there. We now have stairs, electrical leads in place, walls, but also a list of things that need to be rectified but i wont get into that cause id still be here by dinner time. DH has holidays for a month in a couple of weeks and we were hoping to move then but its not looking good .

    Jen - Hope you are hanging in there and taking care of yourself. I dont think i could handle a new bub anytime soon even if i only had Liam.

    Liam loves the toilet paper?!?!?!?! even thought the bathroom door is shut he grabs any opportunity to go in there and pull it off. Also loves my draw with all the hair stuff and bottles/tubes.
    Both boys have the sniffles ATM so i feel like i am forever having tissues in my hand!
    Liam loves to dance and clap or tap his hands on his legs when music comes on . He looks so cute bopping along. This morning at Brads school assembly a class did a presentation and when the music started he was "singing" along and dancing. Kind of embarassing but very cute.

    I hope you are all well and your bubbas or should i say toddlers are keeping out of trouble

    Hi all.
    I have been slack posting in here and with no good reason.
    Well I do have a little reason and that is that I have been helping my PIL's get their stuff organsied for when they leave. I just helped them with a garage sale and also got rid of a few things of mine, which was so fantastic because we needed money for our car rego and I got it from the things I sold! The exact amount too!
    Cailan has been walking for about a month now, he is so cute. Starting to really get a run up too. We go to a pentecostal church and he raises his little arm into the air during worship, it is so beautiful. He is very vocal and told me to shut up the other day. I think he got that from his big brother who tells the dog to shut up. He has 9 teeth, the 8 in the front and a molar has just come through.
    Jen13 ~ I have to have a pap-smear before I go any further with the tubal reversal. I go tomorrow for that, not looking forward to it as you can well imagine. Lucy sounds so cute, sipping from the straw and learning to ride her bike. What great timing that you got it on video!
    Mum2 ~ I hope your pregnancy is going well and Miss T isn't tiring you out too much!
    Kas ~ Glad to hear someone else is having the bathroom/toilet and drawer problems. Cailan goes in to my underwear drawer (only one he can open) and pulls everything out. How embarrassing when FIL sees my knickers on the floor!
    Liz ~ How is your pregnancy going?
    Hi to all I have missed. Hope all mums and tods are happy and healthy.

    She has tooth # 11 coming through... how many more to go... arghhhh...

    I cant believe how many of you are expecting again.. that is so cool.... I wanna nother LOL

    Try & have a read through.... lots to catch up on...!!!

    Take care...

    Hi Mitch - yay to Alexa for walking!!! Clever girl. It is making me a bit clucky too, all of my baby buddy Mums who are having another. But I'm happy to look forward to it for a bit longer yet! OMG at 11 teeth! Lucy has nine (I think), and who knows how many more coming through. I don't really get long enough to look properly. She does let me brush her teeth every night though, so I should check then.

    Lucy held her own little mug this morning at breakfast and managed to drink it all without spilling it everywhere. Now she can feed herself properly with a spoon and drink out of a mug which makes it a lot easier to have my breakfast before it goes cold!

    Oh, and has anyone else's bub dropped their morning nap altogether? Lucy hasn't been having one since last week and doesn't seem to be missing it at all. Has a good couple of hours in the afternoon still. Altho she's been eating constantly all morning instead!

    Must go, work to do. Hi to everyone else!

    Wow Lucy is a clever girl! Tallon still only feeds himself finger foods. No interest in using a spoon himself yet, and spills an open cup LOL. He has however drunk from a straw from a long time ago (discovered it one day out shopping out of desperation LOL).

    Funny you should mention Lucy riding her bike.. Tallon has just worked out how to get his leg over and walk along with it.. doesn't realise he should sit and push with his legs. hehe. But he didn't like the bike to begin with.. took quite a while to warm up to it. But we went to a friends place last weekend and they had a little kids rollercoaster type thing setup, and he went on that quite happily, so I think that gave him the confidence to climb on to the bike. He was very proud of himself hehe.

    Sleeps - still changes all the time. At the moment he's sleeping in until about 10am.. then just having one mid-afternoon nap. But if he happens to wake properly at 7/7.30 he'll generally need a quick nap just before lunch. So it depends really.

    Well, we're still happily breastfeeding, all my bloods etc came back perfect.. much to the GP's surprise (ha!) coz she wasn't keen on me still feeding him through the pregnancy.. but it's having no effect on my 'system' so she's got no leg to stand on now. hehehe. I have my OB appt on Friday. Looking forward to seeing him again! Hope he's ready to be drilled on how to tweak my next birth! LOL.

    Take care everyone, I'm still reading everyone's posts with interest.. just hard to keep up with baby & belly buddies all at once hehe.

    Hi there,
    Sniffles still in abundance at my house. I think i am getting it all back. Felt a bit off colour last night and managed to get just under 12 hours sleep to help get back on top of it but still feel "all heady" IYKWIM. We are off to a birthday party for brad's girlfriend (they have been telling both mums that thay are going to get married one day) at a the local sports centre this afternoon. They do gymastics parties similar i guess to the way they run the kindygyms. So i am sure he will have a blast.

    Liam has become very domesticated by helping me sweep. The only problem with that is, is that he intentionally makes a mess first.

    Teeth - still just the two bottom ones however i can see the bumps in the top gum at the front so surely they shouldn't be too far off. He is managing quiet well though with the ones he has.

    Sleep - Usually one big one in the middle of the day for about 2- 2/12 hours and bed at 8pm and back up around 7, 7:30am. However if tired will sometimes sneak in a 1/2 hour nap.

    Hopefully on three or four weeks now till we move but

    Steph - Well done to Cailan on mastering the walking. I can just picture him in church now he would look so cute. Wow at all thoses teeth and a molar already!!!

    Mitch - Before you know it those few steps will turn into running. It doesn't take long and you all of a sudden realise that the baby is gone. A bit sad really but great that they are getting some independace.....and able to get away faster and uyp to more mischief. OMG at 11 teeth. Liam would like to know how to order some...HAha.

    Jen13- I haven't tried Liam with his toothbrush. I have thought about it though. I guess it wouldn't take me long!! What a clver girl miss lucy is drinking from a mug. ATM Liam loves to dring either from a straw cup or one of Bradspop lid type drink bottles. Only prob we get is that he likes to dribble and spit it all back out whilst singing or talking.

    Liz - The rollercoaster thing sounds interesting. Liam still just likes to push his bike around. His feet still dont reach the floor if he sits on his. How did your OB appointment go?

    Ok little fingers trying to help, so that is my call to leave.

    Hi girls

    Just a quick hello before Lucy and I pop off to buy DP's bday present for tomorrow. Kas, great to hear the house is almost there, you'll be so happy once you move in all the hassles will be forgotten!!

    I've been working more and Lucy is loving having Larissa and Tiana here two days a week to look after her. I'm loving being able to pop out to meetings whenever I need to. Seem to have picked up some new clients and hoping this is a very good sign!

    Lucy has learned to go down the slide on her own and can climb the steps (as long as it's not too high) herself, very cute to watch. Apart from that she is just such a stickybeak and into everything that it's hard to keep up with her!

    Must go, she's awake.

    Hey Mitch, good to hear from you! Yeah, I had fears about bf and biting as well, but I have to say, Lucy did it only once at 3 mths (by accident, and b4 teeth!) which made me shriek and her cry - nothing since! Thank goodness, since she has a mouthful of teeth and still bfs 4x a day. I wonder if the biting thing doesn't happen as much if they're still bfing, since the response would be quite extreme at this point?! We have a friend whose little girl is same age as Lucy and just does this bum-shuffle, one leg out action and refuses to get around any other way! And Alexa was early, so I'm sure she'll walk when she decides she wants to.

    'Scuse me while I just go rescue Lucy from the bottom of the garden before she tries climbing down the retaining wall!!!

    She is finally (the last two weeks) sleeping all night 6.30-7pm till 6.30-7am in the morning, i am so grateful of this since bubba 2 will be here soon.

    She can dance and twirl to her songs on the radio and loves Playschool. She loves pointing at the birds outside and also picking flowers out of the garden.

    Gosh there is so much to tell you all but it would be too much really. Everyones bubbas have all grown up to be big toddlers now and it is amazing to here how well they all are and what mischeif they all getting into.

    Jen13 - WELL DONE ON BREASTFEEDING STILL! Oh i couldn't do it with all the teeth.... Lucy sounds like she is growing up fast as well and your work sounds like it is taking off really well to. You must be very proud of yourself thats for sure.

    Mitch - don't worry about the walking she will get to it when she is ready all kids are different in development. Gosh sometimes i wish Miss T was still not walking as when they do gosh you sure do no about it. Lol

    Liz - how is your pregnancy going? when are you due again sorry i have forgotten.

    Jimsteph - Oh Miss T yes, well as you can imagine it hasn't been too easy this time round being pregnant Miss T is a very active little girl thats for sure. I have to keep her entertained most days otherwise it is caos in this house!!!! I htink all of our houses though would be most of the time in running a household etc.

    Kas- Oh i am hanging in there JUST! You will handle it for some reason you find an inner stength to just get on with your daily life and a huge belly! Lol yeah i whinge to Dh some days but i'm aloud too some days aren't i..... You will handle it one day when you are ready kas. Liam sounds cute and very domesticated for a guy. Lol!

    Well hi to all the others if i have missed anyone. And hopefully there will be an announcement sound of my second baby which we are naming Shayla Marie.

    Take care all and i will post again soon hopefully. My apoligies if i don't for a while i may be giving birth etc and getting use to another routine. AHHHHHHH!!!1 Round two here we come.
