    Hi everyone
    Hope everyone had a great first christmas with their bubs!! Ours was great!! Ethyn got spoilt rotten!! my parents house looked like target toy sale!!! What with toys for Ethyn and my nearly 3 year old nephew. My parents got Ethyn the animal train, he commando chased it around the house!! Quite cute to watch. Ethyn has finally said his first word. After months of me saying "dada" he decided that "mama" was his first word!! I may not be around much for a while. I am going back to work on 2 Jan full time, and want to make the most of my last days off with Ethyn. Will try to get on here at night time, but if not I will be thinking of you all and your bubba's.

    Hope everyone is well

    Hahaha Lee, it sounds just like our house, we need a storage unit to fit all of Noahs toys.

    Noah got a V-tech Babys First Laptop, the FP Animal Train, FP Roll a Rounds, FP Sing Stage, FP Stacking Rings, Leap Frog Drum, Leap Frog Tad, a few books and a few other bits and pieces. And to think all he wants to play with is speaker wires even when he is surrounded by all these fantastic toys

    Well I am going to get back to sitting in front of the cooler and watching the cricket, it is 43 degrees here today and I am not at my best after my adventures last night. Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!!!

    Sarah - talk about shares in FP hey!Ok here is the full list - are you ready!!
    Iz got the FP baby blocks walker, the FP cement truck, a FP little pig thing that shakes, FP rollarounds, the FP swing then a Baby Einstein handle thing that speaks different lanuguages, a book called Alien Al from Al and the first page says "Izzy goes to different planets" haha, Dr Suess books, Guess how much I love you seasons books, Where is the green sheep board book, 4 colour touch and feel books, an awesome pink toy box for the lounge room from Al plus a gorgeous Bebe outfit, about 10 other clothing outfits from size 00-size 2 which is great, an Isabella tree deco, a soft material bunny - dubbed "honey" from me, plus a Mr Silly book (about daddy). I'm sure I've missed a few things- isn't that ridiculous!!
    I got a new camera - a Panasonic 10X optical zoom, I LOVE it - just need to work out how to use it! I also got a Seacret hand set from mum and dad, (plus they went halves with Al for my camera), a Brita water filter that Ive wanted for ages, a coffee plunger (Sarah - what coffee do you recommend!??) lots of vouchers so Im going shopping for work clothes!, chocolates and a tee-shirt!
    Possibly left some stuff out!

    Well anyway it's been hectic around here just lots of catching up with friends while they are all on holidays, plus having a pool means lots of bbq's here too considering the heatwave in Melbourne right now - 41 on New Years Eve! You can guess where we will be! We are going to visit Al's mum and dad later in the week when it cools down a bit and then off to the beach at Cape Paterson to stay with my sister and her friends who have hired a huge house for a week, so that should be nice! Im LOVING having Al home- its just been wonderful, and we are making the most of it seeing as I start work in less than 5 weeks now.

    Right we have friends over for a bbq tonght (39 here today!!) so Id better go! Hope you are all fab and will catch you all soon!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! It sounds like all of our bubs have been spoilt rotten and us too! We really enjoyed christmas but it came and went so fast! I have no idea what to do with all the toys Julian received. Where are you putting them all? My living room resembles a preschool.

    He got a Fp telephone that makes noises, FP telephone that doesn't make noises, Tad the talking frog, FP pots and pans, FP learning tool bench, Fp ring, FP shape sorter, a drum that plays music when tapped and speaks in french and english, 3 DVDs, FP thing that they put the balls in and it swirls around, 2 walkers one FP one another brand, FP cookie thing that makes sounds, safety 1st bouncin baby exercise saucer, FP laptop, FP learning table, bath toy set, FP grand baby piano, vtech baby driver set where they pretend to drive a car, a pooh bear fold out lounge, FP pull along animal thing in the train or is it a car, musical keys, 2 soft books the farm animal one and the peekabo i love you, lots of clothes, fluffy elephant, a pair of shoes, 5 cotton on tshirts with different sayings. I'm sure there's things I've left off as we left pressies at my inlaws as there was no way it could fit in our car.

    We had an incident a week ago and i just wanted to tell you so that you are aware. I was sitting at a busy cafe with Julian at 2 o'clock in the afternoon when a man snuck up on us all of a sudden. He asked me a question behind me, something like I'm sure you are glad to get out of the house, I turned around to see who was asking me when he grabbed julians hands made cooing noises then dropped his hands to touch julian over his nappy. The first time I didn't know what he was doing as it looked like he had just let go of his hands but he tried to do it again, I grabbed his arm harshly and threw it away. The man ran off and I sat there dumbfounded. The whole thing happened in less than a minute. I never thought I'd have to deal with this stuff at 8 months. I'm relieved that he hadn't waited to follow us to our car but it has left me very shaken. Take care with anyone who approaches you. I spoke to the police and I realised that this stuff happens all the time though not usually to 8 month old babies, but far worse things can happen like kidnappings and assaults. Sorry to be a downer but I would hate something like this happening to one of you. I realised that these predators target the vulnerable (I was on my own) and they are very clever at what they do.

    I also agree that it is great to have our hubbies home. I feel like I am on vacation too. Pat and Julian have such a stronger bond now as he has been at home fulltime since before xmas. He reaches for Pat many times and doesn't want me which I think is great for Pat to feel needed.

    Enjoy your new years!

    OMG Jan, that's horrible, I definitely haven't thought about those things happening at the young age, but I guess with those deviates out there anything is possible. Big hugs to you and Julian :hugs:

    Oh Jan that is horrific!!! Thank you for sharing that with us, it is so easy to assume everyone is a nice person and well meaning. I don't think I will let Noah out of my sight anymore now!

    Tan, I get Vittoria(sp?) coffee, it is the only one that tastes any good that I have gotten anyway. I bought Aldi coffee and it is gross but I am too tight a$$ed to throw it out even though it cost 7 for 500gms I get the Espresso flavour because I need that strength to get me through the day

    What is everyones plans for NYE? We are going out with Juz's parents but have no plans after that. I feel so old and like a homebody now

    Jan - that's truly awful. You must have been really shaken after that. Someone grabbing Iz is my worst fear. When I went to the loo the other day at a shopping centre just before Christmas (so packed with people) a woman had left her kiddies in the pram/toddler seat in the corridor OUTSIDE the toilets - not even inside the women's toilets. I stayed with the kids until she came back and when she did, she was stunned I thought it appropriate someone be with them! On a happier note, it sounds like Julian was well and truly spoilt too - as he should be!!

    Sarah - we're heading to a friend's who lives in the next street for NYE. I have my two closest friends each living in the next street from me (we're sandwiched in the middle) Another couple of friends live a 3 minute walk away so its really convenient for us all to just wander between houses. I'm so tired now though that I doubt I'll make it to 10pm, let alone midnight. I can't remember being this tired when I was pregnant with Iz - I really need my nanna naps each day!

    Oh my GOD Jan... that makes me feel completely ill. I'm so glad nothing else happened but even still it is enough to make you seriously lose the plot (I know I would!) - You're a braver woman than I that's for sure. Thanks for letting us know.

    I went to our local shopping centre today, and every weird looking man that looked my way I got paranoid that they had an ulterior motive.

    Hope you have a great new year!!!
    We are having a pool party bbq with about 15 people coming over

    One week tomorrow I will actually be 2 hours into my first shift back at work . I can't believe it! I've had to start getting everything organised for work and Livvy and it's breaking my heart and I'm all teary. Poor Dave doesn't know what to do or say because everything he says makes me cry. Poor guy!! I know deep down that we will both be fine and Livvy will enjoy playing and socialising with other kids her age. On the upside I got to go shopping and buy her special day care clothes which she can trash with all the fun she is going to be having. I just need to keep telling myself this. Livvy is going to love it, she's going to have fun and she's going to miss her mummy and be so excited to see me when I pick her up!!! I'm going to be an absolute wreck. I have to call and organise our orientation days at the centre so I'm hoping that these few days will make me feel better and more secure in leaving her in someone elses care. I don't even know if she take a bottle or settle for someone else. I've got so many worries and the biggest list of questions that I am hoping will all get sorted out during these days. These poor carers are going to think that I'm the biggest paranoid control freak. LOL!
    OMG vent over. That wasn't meant to be so long. OOPS!

    Jan - OMG!! I think you handled the situation fantastically. How incredibly scarey though. I keep forgetting the sicko's that are out there and that not everyone's intentions are genuine. I hope that you are recovering and feeling safe enough to venture out by yourself with Julian.

    I hope everyone has the most amazing New Years Eve and the new year brings us all lots to enjoy and celebrate. Anyone doing new year resolutions? Can't wait to hear what everyone gets up too. We are off to a BBQ at a friends house. It's going to be hot!!!!

    Livvy is screaming so I better go and get her.
    Catch up soon,
    Luv Dan.

    I'm off to an 80's themed NYE party tonight, lucky that fluoro is back in (I HATE it) but has come in handy to try and find something to wear. I have orange hoop earrings, one pink and one yellow perspex bangles, pink and orangE eyeshadow (with obligatory teal eyeliner) and a pink headband all in fluoro, and my top is black with yellow words saying LOVE IS HATE lol Should be a good night, hope everyone has a great time!

    I haven't update but Scott kicked me out on Thursday because he said I wasn't "doing enough" and that if I went and saw my friend that night not to come back, so I didn't and my stuff was packed at the front door when I got home. If he didn't kick me out I was leaving again anyway, he turned into a control freak who tried to keep me under lock and key. Stuff him, I'm so much happier without him (even though it breaks my heart to know Blake won't have his dad around much).

    HAVE A WONDERFUL NIGHT MUMS AND BUBS!

    Hope everyone had a safe and happy night last night. I did, had too much to drink, ate too much bbq and stayed up later than what I had hoped, but at least Ethyn slept in til 8am this morning!!! After midnight I went in and kissed him happy new year.
    Well I am back to work tomorrow, I honestly don't think I am ready to go back, I'm a bit like you at the moment Dan all teary and emotional, just have to keep thinking that I am doing this for Ethyn, to give him the best of things, either buy a new house, or renovate this one.
    Hope everyone is well

    Best of luck starting work tomorrow Lee. It's hard (we all know) but like you said you aren't doing it because you want to you are doing to be able to provide Ethyn with everything he needs and a roof over his head and food in his belly. You'll have to pop on and let us know how you got on.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! I hope everyone had a better night than me. Mine sucked! We got to the BBQ at 7pm and were home at 1am and I spent 2 hours of that sitting alone in the lounge room trying to settle Livvy and the rest of the time was feeding and entertaining Livvy outside. Poor little munchin was so hot and it was so noisy. She's exhausted today but doesn't matter she can catch up on sleep today.
