    hehe I'm number one...

    Richelle, a friend of mine has a little girl who's lactose intolerant and I think from memory it was GP for her. One way to check it though is to cut out milk for say a week then give her some and see how she reacts with it. Hope you find out one way or the other.

    Ali, you'll have a great time! I had fun

    Well, we had Oskar's party today and I must say I almost cried when we sang happy birthday. We just did a sausage sizzle and had nibblies etc, but it was good and we had plenty of food. We had a great time and Oskar was so good. He was awake from about 7:30am until 2pm. He then had a 2 1/2 hour sleep...lol. He was very spoilt and got some great pressies! Cool toys and some really cute clothes and the most gorgeous little cardigan/jumper from Myer... OMG it's just beautiful and I can't wait for it to get cool enough for him to wear it!! I did ice his cake and I did do the canvas thingy!! It turned out to be so good, I love it and everyone loved the idea and thought it was cool so I felt pretty chuffed about that....lol.

    Anyway, Oskar is playing with some of his new toys at the moment, so I might go and sneak a quiet coffee!! Then I think to bed soonish I still can't believe he's one!

    Happy Birthday to Oskar! And all the other March bubba's I have missed. March has been a big month!

    Ari is just a little gem, brings a sparkle to my day everyday. She babbles away mostly incohherently but she does say Ariya, Xander (her favourite word), Dad and mum bye bye, uh-oh, and ah-ah (also her name for the dog, as he keeps licking her and she tells him off) she can say ball and car and booby (which also means bottle :-) She still has no hair, so she still looks like a little baby to me. It is just a joy to see her climbing and walking, building and learning all day long... just beautiful.

    Good to hear that everyone else is having sleep issues at the moment! We seriously need to set a sleep routine for Ariya now that she is older but it is just so hard with Bob's hours and DS. Hopefully we will be able to fall into something reasonable soon.

    Talk soon

    My poor little girl! Claire has got Croup... not sure where from... I suppose she picked something up at daycare, as we havent been at mothers group in a few weeks. We ended up at the hospital early yesterday morning as it sounded like she was struggling to breath. We spent some time in Paeds while they observed her and gave her some steroids. The steroid seemed to help her. She is still not 100% but a little better now. I was supposed to go to work for some training thing but I called in and told them I wasnt going!

    Awww..Karina..hope Claire is better soon, it is so hearbreaking when they are unwell.

    OMG....we did it! Grace had her first sleep over at my parents house last night! I think I was stressing more than anyone else, lol. She was so good. Apparently she went to bed at 7pm like normal and woke at 8.10 am without a peep through the night..such a good girl. And I did really well too..once we were out! Watching her wave goodbye was a bit hard. DH and I went and saw Maroon 5 in concert....it was fantastic...it was just really nice to go and do something different together! We went and had dinner and then got gelati and strolled along the river to the tennis centre...it was really nice..and got a sleep in (mind you have been feeling exhausted today probalby from too much sleep!). Went out for breakfast then went and picked grace up, was lovely.

    I am going to go and get her immunisations done tomorrow , I HATE getting them done, can't put it off any longer though.

    She is still being really cheeky with her walking but she is doing itmore and more, especially when she thinks we aren't watching. She can so do it, she just needs to build up the courage to do it all the time.

    Hope everyone else is well, take care.

    Just quickly popping in, Cooper had his birthday and party on the 29 th as well we too had a sausage sizzle and nibblies, he got so spoilt and was exhausted that night. We are in the process of packing at the moment are moving on Sunday and is just a nightmare keep comming up against brickwalls everywhere, but am sure we will love our new house. Cooper has started waking up about 3 in the morning so I give him a bottle but he just screams until I put him in our bed he then drops off straight away, I tried leaving him but because he shares with his brothers I dont want them woken up when they have school the next day. When we move he will have his own room so will just persever with him and let him cry I think, he has also been funny with his bottles wont have formular during the day just cows milk and at night he is the opposite, he also started throwing his dummy away about 2 weeks agao so now is completly off it which is great. Anyway beeter return to the packing while he is sleeping.

    Poor little Claire! Not good at all!

    I got answers about the milk issues, turns out she is sensitive to the bacterias in the milk, but not the lactose, so its a lot easier to handle than I was expecting! She has been sick all weekend with some virus thats going around, I can't wait for her to be over it so I can have a full nights sleep! She had me up till 4am Sunday night/Monday morning, it was just crazy! And then the rash that went with it was a mixture of a measles and chicken pox looking thing.

    Wow, its April and all the birthdays are done. Were the parties as hard as everyone expected?

    Hey all! I have managed to find the laptop somewhere amongst all of the boxes that are all over my house! YAY!!!

    I am soooooooooooo over packing!

    But our house settles tomorrow! And then we move on Thursday! YIPPEE!!!!

    Mel - whereabouts are you moving to?

    Karina - poor Claire! I hope she is better soon!

    Rachel - Yay on Grace having her first sleep-over! We haven't managed to do that one yet - we have been out a couple of times, and left Emy with Mum, but then we end up staying at Mum's house too. Oh, and once she has started walking, you will kind of wish that she couldn't!

    Sarah - Ari sounds so cute!

    Richelle - Glad that you got your milk issues sorted out. I eventually figured out that Emy's feral nights were caused by her 8th tooth coming up. I never even thought of teething while it was happening though - it has been such a long time since she had the last one come up!

    Speaking of teeth - Emy has chipped her front tooth - we don't have a bath in this house, so she has her baths in the laundry sink, and she tried to stand up the other day when J was bathing her, and she slipped and hit her mouth, and chipped the tooth! It made the loudest noise, and then she let out the loudest scream! Poor little thing...

    We aren't having Emy's party until 12 April, because of the whole Easter thing, and then my parents have gone to New Zealand and don't get back until the 6th, and also with moving, it was just all too feral to try and get a party any earlier. Oh well, better late than never!

    Better go - baby-sitting my 22 month old niece today, and the 2 of them are causing havoc!

    Oh all the March bubs are just the cutest huh!!

    Ali, yay for your house!! Emy's tooth should be ok so long as it's not exposing a nerve. Any sharp edges will smooth out. Joshua chipped an adult tooth a few years back and even though he's had a little work done on it, it too has smoothed out more and is even less noticable now.

    Aww Karina, I hate it when bubs are sick. It's so much harder to deal with when they can't tell you how they feel or where they feel it! I hope that she is better and you feel better too.

    Rachel, I had Oskar's immunistations done yesterday, how did you go? Oskar screwed up his little face then let out the loudest cry! His whole face and head went red, poor little man. At least it's all done now and the next one is only one needle my doc said...phew I say! Oh and Andy came up with a great idea as I was complaining to him that it's not fair I have to do the mean thing with needles and he said take a little bit of chocolate to give to him after his needles... well, he'd stopped crying already but could still see on his face that he was not happy and then I gave him a little bit of chocolate and he was all good and happy again! Hmmm now why didn't I think of that first?!?!?! Andy said he just remembered his doc giving them a lolly when they used to go and he doesn't remember the bad stuff...so there you go!

    Richelle, that's good... maybe A2 milk would be ok for her??

    Well, as stated, Oskar had his needles yesterday and is all good now. He weighed in on the doc's scales at 10.1kg (up the road it's 10/3kg.. but hey give or take right?), head 47cm and length 78cm. His head and weight are right smack bang on average but height is above - not surprising, his dad is 6' 2" or thereabout. Anyway, that's all reports from me for now.... hope everyone's doing well

    Hello.....Stupid power wasn't working for 2 days so I haven't been able to get online and share our exciting news......Grace is walking!!!!!! lmao!!!! On Tuesday night she just wandered up to us like she had been walking her whole life...as if it was nothing new, she is very proud of herself! We are very proud...so far it's all good, although she sneaks around much faster and can't take an eye off her for a second or big spills occur (she had her first major spill down 2 stairs yesterday...I heard her head hit the ground....poor baby, i wanted to cry too lol).

    Cass, we had Grace's immunisations done on Tuesday...she was so good...didn't cry for the first one, a little wimper for the second and then cried for the third but I gave her her dummy and her teddy and she stopped crying almost straight away, much braver than me, if I had been given 3 injections I would be a blubbering mess! lol.

    Think she's teething again as had a bit of a rough night with her last night and today she has been dribbling majorly, chewing on everything, wouldn't let me brush her teeth, a bit of nappy rash and she has been grinding her teeth, eeewww it's horrible!

    A bit worried about an early wake up tomorrow with day light savings ending...fingers crossed that she has a sleep in which will make her wake up on time!

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

    Oh...there are 4 mum's in mum's group pregnant again (out of 10), that's high numbers...hope it's not catching lol!

    Rachel, wooohoo for Grace walking - what a clever little girl! Hope she didnt bump her head too hard. Claire loves walking too. I cant believe how fast she can move! Now that theyre walking, theres a whole new set of challenges for us. lol.
    Poooo to the power being off. Stupid weather.

    Ali, poor little Emy chipping her tooth! At least its a baby tooth hey? Hope its ok.
    Woohoo about your house, how exciting. Are you all unpacked?

    Ok well Claire much better now, but still not 100%. Still a bit of a cold and to make it worse she is also teething. Getting her 5th and 6th teeth at the moment. She seems to get two teeeth at a time. So she's been getting lots of booby to make her feel better and some panadol if she isnt coping. Its so hard sometimes when she cant tell me where it hurts! To top off our week, DH has been seeing a specialist about his gastro issue and has had a bunch of tests done that show nothing in particular. So now the doc wants him in hospital to have a look inside him with a camera to rule out nasty things like bowel and colon cancer, so DH is, understandably, quite scared. Its a day procedure for a few hours and under a general anaesthetic. On a good note, I'm quite healthy at the moment!

    We went out today to get some portraits done. Claire had a great time and thought the flash on the camera was very funny. We got some great shots and the photographer was really good at talking to Claire. She kept on coming up really close to the camera and all that could be seen in the shot was a pair of eyes. lol. We get to see them all next week so I'm looking forward to that. I think its going to be one of those times where I just cant decide what photos to get printed!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

    Hello all!

    Eeeek everytime I come on here it reminds me how slack I am! I still haven't had Ari's 12mth check. We aren't decided on whether or not to go with the mmr yet, maybe delay until she is 3-4 as there has been a lot of publicity about the links to autism and as DS has been diagnoised with autism I just don't want to do anything that might trigger it later on.

    Karina - hope claire is feeling better now and that your DH is OK! Great to hear I'm not the only one still feeding too, starting to get those funny looks now that she walks so much.

    Ali - Would it be worth getting it checked by a dentist? I think we took DS to see a dentist when he was 1 or 2 (it was part of the health program in Maryborough at the time) Hope the move goes smoothly

    Rachel - yay for Grace! Ari is forever falling over (mainly because she is trying to run everywhere)

    Richelle - Hope everyone is feeling better now

    Howdy doodys!

    Well we have mostly moved in - there is still a few things over at the other house, and most of the hanging clothes are still in its cupboards, but most stuff is here, and we will be getting the rest of the stuff soon.

    Haven't really even begun unpacking yet - I was feeling like death warmed up on Friday, so I didn't do much of anything then, and yesterday we went to Bunnings and spent ages there looking for various things, and at the prices of some things. I was looking for something to line the cupboards with before I put anything in them - my sister got these rolls of a non-slip mat thing from Ikea, and I was looking for something similar, but couldn't find anything. So annoying!!!

    Anyway, gotta go - J just got back, and now we have to do some work.

    Sarah, yeah I dont think many people know I'm "still" breastfeeding Claire. She is pretty petite so people tend to think she is younger than she actually is. I just say to people that the WHO recommends it until 2 years old, if anyone asks why she is still being BF/not on formula yet. Although no one has ever really asked, except my mum and sister. Claire is going through this stage now where she'll just come over to me and start tugging at my shirt to try to get to the booby.

    Ali, we have one of those discount store/$2 shops near us, and they sell those non-slip mats in long skinny rolls for pretty cheap. Hope you are feeling better today.

    Well the other day my washing machine stopped working, which is a major PITA because we use cloth nappies!!! So, last night, I HAND WASHED nappies in the bath. Just the wee ones, not the poo ones. I'm going to wait for Claire wake up from her nap then I might go over to my mums place to use their washing machine. Need to wash my and DH 's clothes for work! Our vacuum cleaner also packed it in and we bought a new one just last week, and now we probably have to go and spend a stack of money on a washing machine! Argh!!! Appliances!!!

    Hey,
    How are you all sorry i been MIA for a while its been mayhem here. Just with kids getting the flu then i got it really bad. It sucked i went through 1 1/2boxes of tissues. . . And so many panadol - still not fully over it, but almost.

    Izzy had her needles the other day, there was ment to be three, but they ran out of one of them so only got two... Izzy screamed the most horrible scream but when it was over she just gave me pick cuddles and sobbed in my arms a little... then the nurse walked out, and when she walked back in - Izzy yelled something really horrible in baby language at her! It was so funny!

    Hey Cass, Izzy is the same weight as Oskar 10.1kg, length 77cm, head 46cm, they are almost in unison! hehe so cute.. .

    Sorry i havent done personals for everyone, these kids are driving me insane and i really need to take the 3yop to kindy (i know that sounds horrible) but he is so naughty today - well actually any day he is left with me, and if i tell him to behave he turns around and says your not my mum you cant tell me what to do~ Soooo hard!!

    Sorry bye !

    Karina - bummer bout all the appliences! You aren't having much luck with all things electrical ? Ari smacks me in the chest and yells boobie with sounds like bubby which is funny but I'm lucky that she doesn't ask much when we are out and about unless she is over tired.

    Cass-blob - hoping your all feling better and only 5 more days till school goes back! Hooray :-)

    Ali - good to hear your all settled in

    Rachel.. big woohoo for Grace!! They look so cute when they first start walking. There's a few bubs in our mother's group who've just recently started walking, I love it. I'm not worried that Oskar isn't interested too much yet, cos then he'll be harder to catch!! lol.

    Sarah, we're still BFing too. Oskar isn't about to give it up I can tell you that much now! I've had comments from way back when he was getting teeth... like, you'll have to give up now and I'm like.. ummm why?? biting?? ummm nope. Now it's, oh you're a big boy now you're one... well you know what, he likes it, I like it and it works for us.

    Cass, all the best hun, I hope that it goes well for you. Iz should be fine oh and step kids can be a little nastly like that... I was adopted and remember saying that to my mum!

    Karina, how totally annoying!! It's always something you can't live without too!

    Oskar has had a bit of a rough week, had a temp up and down on Sun, doc on Monday and shows he has a really red throat, so onto the antibiotics as he had throat infection a few months ago too. Well, Monday night, OMG I think I had like 2 hours sleep (worse than a newborn it was) and poor Oskar would wake up crying and wouldn't settle... didn't even want boob!!! Now, there's something really wrong if that's the case. So at 3:30am I was soooo close to taking him to the hospital or calling the ambulance except that I didn't want to be left sitting up there for like 5 hours like last time before they see you and also the cold night air.. I thought I would keep an eye on him (he still sleeps in our room in his cot next to my side of the bed) and then I could at least doze for a few mins and lay down. His breathing wasn't sounding the best and he'd started to cough that awful seal barking sound... and I thought crap he's got croup or something I reckon. So, he threw up his brekky and I thought right we're going back to the doc's and sure enough poor little fella has had croup. He's a lot better now and after his first dose of medicine Tues arvo he slept right through (mind you it took about 2 hours to get him to sleep, I think he was sooooo overtired from not sleeping the night before that he just kept working himself up)... anyway, all seems to be good now thank god! I hate that sound when they cough and struggle to breath cos they're so upset on top of it.
