    christine - LOL, i even get DH and Archie mixed up!



    leanne -bummer about Katy's current sleeping habits (or lack of!) I hope it doesn't last much longer. Woohoo at the pay rise, thats awesome!

    Archie freaked out again at childcare when we left him. He happily packed his bag and was excited to get there though, so he doesn't hate it, he just isn't 100% comfy being around so many other kids, apparently he mainly just hangs with the carer and chats to her the whole time, such an only child thing to do! I am so much happier and less stressed this week, just having 2 mornings without him each week makes such a huge difference to me, wish i did it 12 months ago! Hindsight is wonderful thing though

    Hi all, have been home since Tuesday, but been resting up and adjusting to a household of 4.

    Things have been great though. My boy sleeps and feeds so well it is amazing!!!

    I really can't believe my luck!

    He will feed for atleast 20mins and sleeps for 22 hours a day. I hardly even know I have a newborn. He doesn't even cry for a feed, just knaws on his fist and whinges. He cries when his nappy is off and a little in the bath, but other then that he is an absolute angel.

    Lachlan was such a hard baby as you all know with his severe reflux diagnosed at 3 weeks old but really didn't realise that we had problems from the minute he was born as he only ever fed on my boob for 5mins right from the start. No wonder he was never content and never slept much! Lachlan was so highly strung and high maintenance, but you can tell Riley is just so placid and easy going.

    Riley generally feeds every 4 hours but can sometimes go 5-7 hours between feeds. Appears he is doing 4 hourly mainly overnight, so he has his nights and days mixed up, so after the advice of the CHN yesterday I am to wake him every 3 hours for a feed, which is soooo impossible! Only way it works is to take his nappy off and put him on his tummy. Can't complain with 4 hourly feeds but with going so long thru the day he is only getting in 6 feeds a day which is not enuf in my CHN'S eyes. So we are starting the process of waking him 3 hourly during the day but now I am finding he is too sleepy still and won't feed for as long as before without lots of poking and prodding. Ohhh well we will work it out, def prefer it this way then the way we had it with Lachlan that is for sure. Atleast I am helping lachlan adjust and spending some good quality time with him while bubby is sleeping.

    Lachlan started to be very ratty and seeking lots of attention, but now we are home I have noticed a big difference and he has been so good for the last couple of days. Just hope that continues. I pulled up in the car the other day and he was pointing to us saying mummy and riley.... He gives him cuddles and kisses and really has been very gentle in the last couple of days. Even kneals beside him in his bouncy and touches and talks to him. It is so cute!

    I had Riley weighed yesterday and when we left hospital he had lost 255 grams but 2 days after that had put on 160 grams. So he is doing fabulously. He is 1 week old tomorrow.

    Just can't believe how happy I am as a new mum again. Just hope it continues.

    I really should get too bed before my little man wakes.

    Hope you are all well?

    Ohhh and omg did I see ur ticker Kim, ur pregnant, CONGRATS!!!! I am so pleased for you and sending u lots and lots of sticky vibes your way. xoxoxoxoxoxo

    Only early days ladies but I sooo hope it continues as I think I deserve it after all the problems we had with Lachlan. Crossing my fingers!!! Just really can't believe my luck though if he continues to be this good.

    shazz - woohoo on the new car! DO you feel special when you drive it after driving the VR

    sheree - so fantastic to hear from you and to hear that Riley is an absolute angel! What za lucky Mummy you are this time around. Sounds like Lachlan is adjusting well to his new role of big brother. And the feeding sounds great too, well done!

    Think Archie is getting his 2 year old molars, he was going mental last night, kept waking up beside himself, eventually settled at 1am after some Panadol and Euky Bear Rub for his stufy nose. We are heading to Adelaide in the morning for 2 weeks, so i will not be on here til we get back, can't wait to get back and hear how Riley is going and how your pregnancy is going Kim.

    Have a good trip Elissa!

    A new car Shazz???

    Today DH decided that he wanted to go to the snow...no joke. We live in central NSW - no where near the snow. We went, Darcy had a ball (and 2 spews along the way), we saw kangaroos and emus and eagles. Lol we were only there for about an hour and then headed back.....12 hours round trip

    DD is looking at cars ATM, her problem is champagne tastes on a beer budget lol and is has to be "cute".
    Kim- OMG what fun!!
    Shazz- woo hoo, love getting a new car. What colour is it?
    Elissa- have a great holiday.
    Sheree- I am so jealous of you having a new baby.

    Shazz: Well done on the new car! Enjoy your time off and GL for next semester! I have someone lined up in my Belly Buddies group but she is due the day after me so she may be a little busy haha I will text Sheree aswell so you guys will know as soon as it begins.....Who knows if it goes the same as last time I'll be able to post myself when I start to go into labour.

    Welcome back Sheree! I have said it a million times but Riley is such a cutie!! You definitely deserve an easy baby!

    Elissa: Jayden cried hysterically when we started sending him to a new carer once a week, I was starting to wonder what was going on there as I have never seen him like that...but he got to be fine and he would kiss and cuddle me and say goodbye without any trouble after about 8wks or more....now we don't go there as I'm not working now, but I will visit in case I need to send him back there when I go back to work....Archie will be fine its a lot for him to adjust to.



    Kim: What a trip! Chris and I did that years ago but not as long a trip....I think it was an 8hr round trip and we were at the snow no more than 2hrs....I hated it! Poor Darcy vomitting! Was it just car sick or is she not well?

    Christine: I don't want to sound beyond my years but what is it with kids these days and wanting brand new cars or cars that are over their budget? My 1st car that Chris and I shared was a $300 Escort which lasted 3yrs, before that went I bought my own 1st car Gemini for $1800 which also lasted 3yrs before getting stolen and burnt (no insurance so it wasn't "arranged"), I hated the car in the end but I was wrapped I had a car. My neice and my nephew have both bought brand new cars at the age of 18/19 and both are in debt before there lives have begun.

    Well 13 days to go for me, I am getting so excited! Can't wait to see if its a boy or girl and its weight etc. I will miss the pregnancy, I have enjoyed it all(despite the aches and pains) and its gone so quickly!

    Jayden is good, he still tries to climb over the bump but says sorry to the baby after he has done it and gives my belly a kiss. He knows there is a baby in there but doesn't understand it has to come out. I told him i ate the baby thats why its in my stomach but I didn't realise he would understand that and his jaw dropped and his hand went over his mouth, he was so shocked! I wont say that again haha. He has his cough back again, the poor boy but it doesn't seem to be distressing him too much.

    Anyway I better get some rest who knows when the big day will be!

    kim - lol at the quick trip to the snow!! That is the sort of thing we do, just all of the sudden decide to go away at 8 o'clock at night or something, gotta admit we have never done a 12 hour round trip as a spur of the moment thing though!

    tania - thanks for the reassurance about childcare, though thi time round i am not anxious about much at all. I am so excited about your bub too. lol at telling Jayden you ate it!

    Just having a gourmet dinner at Maccas, thought we'd come here and log into the hotspot here and catch up on things on the net. Will come again next week, was sorta hoping I'd see a post about Tania's bub being born already, but no such luck, can't wait for that. Trip is going well, we arrived at holiday park to discover our bungalow only has 1 bedroom, but the bed is king size and we all fit beautifully in there together, oh, and the bungalow has a spa, oooohhh yeeeaaahhhh!!! There are lots of extremely friendly ducks where we are staying, we opened the door to feed them and they walked straight in! Arch has a bit of a cold, just an annoying night cough really and a bit more grizzly and tired than normal, his eye is looking a bit gunky too tonight, so hoping its not conjunctivitus!

    ROFL Tania!! remind me not to use that explanation!!

    Sounds exactly like the Dragon ATM ELissa. Geee where you're staying sounds nice!

    A cute car Christine....lol my first car was a 1981 KA Laser Ghia....it was just beautiful and in mint condition until my brother got it. Silly thng though, you couldn't let the tank get below half or it would konk out. Was a couple of years before my dad had the fuel tank taken out nad they relaised there was a little cardborad bit that only got sucked onto the fuel line when the level was a bit low....like a new car after that
