    Afternoon,

    Another shocker night lastnight. I knew it would'nt last. Although i did'nt give her any panadol last night so that could be the reason. I don't really just wanna dose her up on panadol though just because i need to sleep. No sleep comes with the territory does'nt it??

    Leanne - Maybe you should get another opinion from another Dr. Are you sure it's not heat rash?? When i got the chicken pox i got one spot on my upper arm, which i thought was a pimple and squeezed the hell out of it, then i got a fever and then came the rest of the spots. Does she get a temp or anything??

    Vic - Well....where do i start!! Firstly i would prolly pay of our farm. Then i would buy either a unit or small house in town so that we had somewhere to stay in town when we needed too. Then i would buy my mum a house. Donate SOME of the money to various family members ie Grandmother, Fav Uncle and some of Brents family. Then i would go on a massive holiday while our NEW BIG house was being built on the farm.

    But as this is NEVER likely to happen...i'll just dream abou it for now!!

    Damn...Briley is awake...I will BBL to finish personals

    Ciao

    $5Mil? I would not tell my family but put 100K or so in each siblings bank account, and pay off my parent's mortgage. With the rest I would buy a caravan park on the coast in QLD and run it with my DH and maybe another couple.

    We're off to the drs in an hr. Spoke with My GP over the phone. Said he thinks Katy's too young for CP but to come in anyway if "I AM THAT WORRIED".

    If we won $5mill, I wouldn't tell a soul. Cameron's family always come to us for money now.....but I would discreetly top up MY favourite people's bank accounts. Then I'd be off to the accountants to find out how I can make it last forever....

    Sara Brauers Calm I tell you. It does work, but the Dragon's just in the habit of waking now.

    Well I guess the spots are still there Leanne. Good luck with the doctor. Does she have a temp?

    Back from the doc.

    Katy does not have the chicken pox, but the doctor did not know what it was. Spots are too big for bites, and in the wrong spots and wrong texture to be the chicken pox. Could be some sort of viral infection but who knows really.... She told us to put some sorbelene cream on them and if it gets any worse or spreads to bring her back.

    She gave her a thorough check out and all other bits and pieces seem to be functioning well, and because Katy was all smiles and chatter sort of made the dr think that she could not really be sick.

    We'll see how she goes.

    Be back later for personals.

    Well at least it's not CP......did he at least swab them?
    Is Em feeling better Nat?

    You should hear the raucus here! Darcy has a new angry "I'M NOT GOING TO SLEEP COS YOU WANT ME TO!!" scream. Puts on quite a show. It's all fake cos it only starts when I walk away....but oh the personailty is revealing itself LOL. I'm sure Darcy the Dragon's motto is going to be "Hear me roar". Hahaha.

    Six months already Shazz? That means most of us have known each other 12 months....

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE MEN!!!

    I can't believe some of the babies are reaching the 6 month mark already!! Time is just flying aint it.

    Brauers Calm you reckon hey Kim...Well i'll have to get me some when i go into town on Thursday. She tried to pull the crap on me before too. I gave her a bath and bottle at about 6.30 cause she was chuckin one on me. She had the bottle and some panadol and i put her into her cot cause she was dosing while she was having the bottle. Well she had other ideas thank-you-very-much!! She was screaming. I got the poo's big time and yelled at her like a naughty mum and she stopped for about...um...2 seconds!! So i put her in front of the tv to watch House of Flying Daggers!!! And she shut up till i put her to bed bout 20mins ago. Hopefully she will sleep through.

    Thats great news Leanne. CP is bad news. Lets hope they find out what it is soon.

    Nice to see that in everyones "5 million dollar wishes" you all woulda brought acerage!! Well i am living that dream but i am paying for it big time too!!

    Our house warming is on this weekend. We are having a big hangi dinner...and now its forcast for rain!! Its raining now too!! It better not. We are going to spend $120 on a whole pig for it so i will be spewin!! I was wondering...Are ppl meant to but you gifts for your house warming?? I am pretty sure they are!!! Would'nt that be nice!!

    Anyways i think i might make an early night of it. It's only 8.35pm and i've been having some late nights lately and then Briley wakes up just as i start to dose off!!

    Hi to everyone else and their litlins!! Talk tomorrow.

    Ciao

    Hi Girls!

    Scott had his staples out today. Bit painful cos the hair that they had shaved off him had started growing back ... at least he's not as itchy any more.

    I nearly threw up though (it takes a lot to make me feel that way) ... right near the top of the incision (sp?) it didn't close properly and there was like a hole ... they put some sort of paper thingy across it (can't for the life of me think what its called) and gave me some spares in case it comes off in the shower. They reckon it should close up properly in the next couple of days. Was very yuck!! He starts physio next tuesday which will be good.

    Went and checked out the heated swimming pool near our house today. Costs $100 for a Mums and Bubs swimming class that they run ... 1/2 hour session once a week for 10 weeks. Don't really have the money right now ... as Scott will probably go there a few times for a little physio I'm just going to take Jovi then and take her myself. The girl who runs the classes was really nice and said that she would make up a sheet of a few of things that they do in the class so I could do them myself with Jovi. Quite nice of them I reckon ... don't usually find that these days. People always just want heaps of money.

    Jovi is sleeping at the moment ... she's pretty much been sleeping with me since Scott had his op and is in another bed. She usually has little crying sessions during the night (teething and dummy falls out and she gets cranky) and I can't be bothered racing across the rooms several times a night to stick it back in to quieten her. Just easier to have her in the bed ... of course she sleeps much soundly that way the little bugger. She's definitely going back to her bed when Scott comes back. At least then there's 2 of us and its not as tiring.

    Although sleeping in our bed she's much easier to get to sleep the last week ... even during the day. I now just put her on our bed on top of her blanket, put the blanket over her, she rolls on her side and passes out. If I try to rock her now it takes like half and hour and my back is killing me! She's getting way too heavy. The next step is to try and get her to self settle ... one step at a time!

    Plus I'm actually getting some nice little naps during the day ... being on leave I can just lie there and end up passing out myself. the house looks like a bomb hit it but I don't really care! As long as no one visits ...

    Of course now Scott's mum and sister are coming for a visit on thursday so I have to clean madly tomorrow ... not much to do really, just the kitchen and fold the clothes (which are lying in a pile in Jovi's room ... that she's not even using at the moment ... lol).

    Sorry if TMI but am anxiously waiting for the arrival of AF. Never wanted it to arrive more! SOMEBODY got a little antsy last week and I'm seriously hoping I'm not pregnant. I was given the pill to take but usual me, never ended up doing it. We have our own methods, but since I was on fertility drugs for Jovi (clomid) I'm now a little worried that I won't have any more probs conceiving (Scott's mum had the same issue and only needed drugs for her first ... there's 15 months between scott and his older sister!).

    I can recognise when I'm going to get AF now cos for the first time I actually get PMS (Really bad ... scott wants to kills me cos I get so moody and cranky) and I was like that last week and I told him that I would prob get it this week ... still haven't ... so I'm hoping it shows up in the next week or so.

    Don't get me wrong ... we want more kids ... but I want to enjoy jovi and the plan was not to have another one until Jovi was almost toilet trained so we wouldn't have 2 babies in nappies.

    Plus it would be really hard financially. Will just have to stop thinking about it and stressing (as that will keep it away longer!) and hope it shows up soon.

    I remember reading something about $5m? Well, we would prob tell our parents and my brother, but wouldn't tell the rest of his family. They're leeches ... lol. They often borrow money off his parents, so we would give them some (that way they could keep lending money, but his sisters would be none the wiser), we would pay off all my parents debts (farmers ... need I say more!) and give some to my brother and his family (also farmers). Buy a house, invest, put a lot away for Jovi, buy a BRAND NEW car, go on our honeymoon (still waiting seeing as though we got married almost 2 years ago! lol) (which would probably be to go to America so Scott could go to the wrestling ... would be fun). And live off the rest for a while. Enjoy the kid/s and not have to worry about work. Would be nice wouldn't it?

    Jovi has her needles coming up in a couple of weeks. I hope she doesn't have a reaction cos 2 days later we have a birthday party for our 1 year old god-daughter, Hallie.

    What does one buy a one year old?

    going to weigh Jovi end of this week. Has been a few weeks and she weighed 6.5 kgs then. She's SOOOO heavy.

    She's not crawling yet like some others here! Well done! She can roll around though but doesn't yet realise that she can use that to catch the cats. Quite funny.

    She's eating like a trojan ... still doesn't really drink all her bottles (anywhere between 150-180mL though I make them up to 210mL just in case she gets hungry), but I usually use the left overs to make her some farax. She finally likes the pear and banana flavoured one which is good ... lack of money this week and that's about all she's had to eat. But she's eating it like 2-3 times a day. She had started eating an hour or so after every bottle (down to 4 now cos of the feeding, with a little top up before i go to bed) and she's putting on weight so I don't worry anymore that she doesn't drink all her bottle.

    She also likes her juice and water.

    She screams at us now when she gets cranky. Quite annoying really and can give you a headache. Is worse when she's been naked and you're trying to dress her. As soon as she feels clothes or the nappy she starts. You just have to ignore it and be quick! lol

    Well ... I've rambled on for a long time now ... talk to you girls soon!

    Happy 6 Months Ryan!
    Happy 5 Months Emerson!

    Leanne: That’s great news that its not CP….If she’s not irritated by it and doesn’t have a temp I wouldn’t worry too much.

    Nat: How’s Em going with his spots? Jayden had spots a couple of weeks ago which I can only guess they were insect bites…I didn’t take him to the Dr’s as they didn’t seem to bother him and he had no temp….However the fate of the 2 mozzies in his room weren’t so good LOL

    Kim: LOL @ Darcy’s personality showing its true colours… I really hope she settles soon for you

    Vic: That sounds really good…..I’m not computer smart enough to do that sort of thing…DP is unbelievable with computers though, he could do it ( but its not him with the problem of going back to work LOL) Re: $5mil I don’t think I would tell many of my family or DP’s…DP’s parents wouldn’t ask for money (they have enough of their own) but there would be no end to the lectures I’d get from FIL if I didn’t spend the money EXACTLY how he thinks it should be spent. He went off at ME for wanting new and nice things ie TV camera etc…..1st of all its DP that wants them NOT me and whats wrong with wanting good things? Fair enough you gotta save but you can’t take it with you so you may as well enjoy it.

    Beck: Eww sounds yukky Beck LOL. Good that the staples are out though I hope he makes a quick recovery for you…How you coping with looking after Jovi and Scott? Send a copy of that sheet to all of us!! That is so nice that she is doing that for you instead of going to the lessons…..I’m not taking Jayden to lessons, its too pricy for their age and we have 2 pools in the family so we can teach him besides its only $4 for a casual swim in the heated pool….Actually Sheree and I are going today YAY!! My house usually looks like a bomb hit it lately…. Lack of motivation I think because I know I’m going back to work soon OMG I hope AF comes for you!! How scary…..I’d love another bub now but I want to enjoy Jayden on his own a bit longer and have enough money to be able to stay at home and not return to work. I usually by clothes for pressies esp for a 1yr old…..Maybe some toys if you know what they already have…bath toys are always good.

    OMG what a long post…..Well my little man decided to wake me up at 5.30 this morning and not go back to sleep…I didn’t talk to him or change him…Just fed him and hoped he’d go back down for a couple of hours!! No luck of course he is laying there going and garring…..I have to change him now I ‘heard’ a deposit being made into his nappy LOL….OMG he is talking to his dummy! Turning around and around in his hands then putting in his mouth then out again…Hmm he’s screaming at it now I better go break it up LOL

    Have a great day girls

    Happy Birthdays Boys!!! 5 and 6 months already. WOW!!!

    I am so relieved it's not chicken pox. I am putting it down to mozzy bites. I squashed a really fat one last night in her room. Looked like it had had a great feed! It's pretty bad if Kaitlyn reacts like that to a bite though. Bright red and huge! Not like me or her father. Feel a little silly that I went to the dr now for something like that.

    We had a good night last night. Fed Kaitlyn at 7 and she went to sleep before her head hit the pillow. No wrapping, nothing. Wasn't even interested in her usual dose of home and away LOL! Then at 11 I thought I'd feed and wrap her cause I did not want a 1 or 2am wake up call and she again was asleep before her head hit the pillow. She's just woken now and she's in there talking to her hands but getting frustrated as they aren't talking back. LOL.

    For a one year old, I guess clothes and toys are the best option. I usually talk to the parent to see what size they are and what they really need. Maybe even a nice book.

    Kim: want to meet up soon? It's been ages.

    Oh, the noise is getting louder. Better go get my little ray of sunshine.

    Have a nice day girls.

    Ryan and Em Happy Birthday. Happy half a journey round the sun Ryan.

    Beck they're called steri strips. Good to hear he seem to be recovering well though. Darcy's been in bed with me a lot too. I really hope AF comes for you. Don't stress though cos it's probably making it worse.

    Yes Leanne I do. Everytime I'm going to send you a message the CP saga seems to get worse LOL.

    Tania I feel sad for you feeling sad at having to go back to work.

    I'm off for an ultrasound this morning. It's part of the battery of tests I have to have from my kidney and liver issues with pregnancy/labour. I'm supposed to be fasting but I'm starving so I'm having black tea. They won't know anyway Gonna cost $145 cos it's a specialist referral :eek:
    Then Darcy and I are having another girls night in.

    Oh forgot. We went into town on Monday in search of a unique and beautiful 'baby's first christmas' ornament. I want to get in early so the IL don't think they have the right to buy one for OUR tree, but I couldn't find any that I love.....so I might try the Christmas Cave this arvie.

    Kim: LOL! I am thinking the saga is over.

    Oh, the Christmas Cave. I Love the Christmas Cave. I am a real softie for decorations. Mark won't let me buy any this year as I am not working but a "baby's first Christmas" orni for Katy is a must.....

    The overalls I won on Ebay arrived for the girls. They are so cute.

    Have a good day.

    We're off to to the clinic for a weigh in this morning. It's been three weeks I think so will be interesting to see how much Kaitlyn's put on.

    BBL.

    Morning Girls!!

    Nice and chatty thismorning i see. Last night was AGAIN another shocker. Briley woke up again and again so at 3am i thought i would try and give her a bottle to see if that's why she was waking up. Well she was hungry and was dosing off while i was giving her the bottle but when i put her into her bed she woke back up and this continued till 7.30am. At times i would try to ignore her but she just kept on going!! I am definetely getting me some on the Brauers Calmer stuff Kim reccomended!

    Beck - That does sound pretty yuck!! AF late hey!! I don't know wether to be happy or what for you!! Hope it all works out the way you want!! Swimming lessons are a great idea, i really have to get Briley is but cause we live so far out of town its a bit of a hassle. I know what you mean about the babies sleeping better when they are in bed with us. As soon as i bring Briley into bed with us she crashes!! I am really trying to persevre(sp??) with her and leave her in her cot all night so she does'nt get too used to being in bed with us. Good luck with the weigh ins!!

    Tania - Your really bummed about having to go back to work hey! I feel for you mate! Im sure you will adjust to it soon enough. How many days a week do you have to work?? Or is it back to f/t??? Sometimes i really REALLY want to go back but then i think of how much i will miss her. Uni will be enough time away next year!! Just think of how much you will appreciate the time you have together so much more!!

    Kim - Where do you find these 'baby's first christmas" ornaments?? And what is Christmas cave?? Is it a shop down that way?? I have never even heard of either of these things. I wish that i could meet up with someone from BB. I am soooo far away rom all of you guys. I think that Tania and Sheree are the closest to me and they are about 12-13 hours away!! Good luck with the u/s. Keep us posted.

    Leanne - Bloody mozzies!! There are a bugger hey. When we were living in the house before this one we never had any screens so i had to put a net over Briley's cot and they would still get in the buggers! She would wake up with red spots all over her face and ears. One time she had about 8 bites on her leg. Poor things can't even shoo them away either. Good luck at the clinic today. Hope Katie is turning into a little "budda" baby for you cause Briley certainly is!!

    Vic - What are you up to today?? Everyone else seem to have a jammed packed day except for me and you!!

    I am planning on trying to prepare things for this weekend. I need to do some washing cause Briley is just going throught the singlets from dribble. She also did 2 major power spews yesterday all over me, the couch, the loungeroom floor, her pillow and herself!! She was'nt taking a break for a burp and was just gutsing herself. Yeah so back to what i was doing today....um....cleaning yeah thats it!! Cleaning. We'll see how i go.

    I better go i'm rambling too much..

    BBL!!

    Neverplan - Scott had 2 bulging discs. As far as we were told in preadmission they were taking out the bulging bits cos they were pressing on his nerves. lots of pain and started to love feeling in his left leg.

    Tannis - will def. post the sheet for u guys when we get it. We'd love another bub too but we're enjoying jovi too much right now and want to see her grow up some more first. will keep u guys updated if/when af arrives

    Morning Girls,

    HAPPY 5 MONTHS EMERSON
    HAPPY 6 MONTHS RYAN


    Baby ~ mmm.....what to get for a one year old, hard cover books are always a good present, but I thought seeing as it is for a god daughter maybe something like an ID bracelet, does she have her ears pierced?, cabbage patch kid, education toys!!!

    Scrappy ~ Thanks, you reminded me that I should get into the shops to get an ornament for little miss...your right you need to get in early for things like that. Last year we had christmas decs made with our names on it, so hoping I can get one made for Phoebe as well.

    Have a good day girls.....BBL for more personals.

    Yeah Sara that's a shop near us.
