    Hello ladies! Been full on here. Annabelle's molers are killing her we tried to do it pain nedication free and just give cuddles in bed. We succeded for about a month all up. Then her gums just got worse and she started a fever so out came the panadol

    Im slowly making some good dishes for her with vegies and they are getting in her little belly!!!
    Clint and I are working things out slowly but surely. Im having extreamly high days and then extreamly low days so may have to see my doctor as Im started to not feel myself.
    Other then the odd off day we are great!

    Annabelle is just so wonderful and amazing, she just realised she can walk backwards now does it everywhere! And in circles too! She says about 30-35 words now! Her new ones are "hello" and "purple" She is starting to understand so much! Today, she must have had a good sleep last night, as she woke repeating EVERYTHING very clearly!
    Question- We dont smack her, but she is smacking and lashing out when she gets frustrated? I have been getting down to her level (so she isn't intimidated) and looking her dead in the eye and telling her a stern "NO." We are going to introduce time out, I dont expect her to actually sit there but I think if we at least intoduce it now then she will have the hang of it eventually. What do you ladies think of this?

    Ash- Welcome back! I can now get to know you properly!

    Tan- So glad little man is head down! How is Izzy? How are you feeling, the bigger you get???

    Lulu- Yay!!!! Im so happy things are slowly but surely working out! I think you will see a hole other little girl come out of Ellie now Alsoyou hole house hold will be a calmer one. Izzy will settle back in. Plus there mummy will be happier now so thats all they could ask for

    Shell- Yeppee!!! For guests! How long are they staying for? House clean with more then one child in it!??? You have to tell me how you did it New furniture sounds great! Whats news with Angus?

    D- How are things with Dp? And of course TTC#2!!!!?????

    Sarah- Yay! For a doula! I know where you're coming from with the bedroom. Some how the hole house could be clean but I still choose to shut the bedroom door and leave it as long as possible! What a great surprise getting a parcel full of goodies! How is Noah? Whats he up to these days?

    Hi to anyone else I have missed, if I have missed anyone sorry!

    Question for you pg ladies- I still see Annabelle as such a baby, how do you explain to a baby that there's another baby? Lulu- How is Izzy? Would they act older then Annabelle as they are put in the position?

    Kass - Im glad you are working things out with Clint hun. As far as the discipline stuff goes it is realy tough. Problem is for these little ones, they don't really understand much more than cause and effect - so if I throw this toy off the high table it will fall to eh floor, mum will pick it up and I can throw it again! If they throw it AT us for example and it hurts us they don't really know what they have done. Izzy went through a hitting phase too a while ago - not sure if you remember my posts about it. I read Toddler Tactics and found the best thing I could do was completely ignore her behaviour and distract her to something else. It was the BEST thing we did. She very rarely does it now, and even if she does, she quickly stops. I found if I say NO when she is frustrated and doing something like that, it makes her do it more because she doesn't know why she is doing it - if that makes sense. If she touches something she shouldn't etc. we say "no don't touh baby you will get hurt" "come here with me" etc with an explanation too. HtH - it is really tough at this age when they are learning so much and are just curious about everything.

    My POV is that it is really is such a great learning time and we can either be negative about it and say Oh terrible twos etc. or be postitive like we are in our house we have a Wonderful One and will have a Terrific Two!! It is our responsibiltiy to guide these cheeky little ones and teach and encourage them within safe limits! Gosh Im babbling on - ignore everything I have said if you like!

    Shell - Thanks hun! I was so frustrated but as I mentioned in my post I know I am right and the stupid Dr was wrong but it doesn't make it any easier to stick up for yourself!
    How are all your little poppets going!?? for the table and buffet! I desperately need a buffet for more storage around here!

    Lulu - That is just AWESOME news hun!!!!! So glad your poppet is taking bottles hun and I know you will be sad, but you know what you need to do for your little girl lovely. I know what you mean about teeth - I wish my Iz would use them a bit more often to chew yummy food! I still put poor Iz in size 0 trackies around the house, and she looks so funny! Mean mummy!

    Lis - I know what you mean about DH! Im 8 mths pg for goodness sake and he thinks doing the dishes if I cook is housework. Nice one! When is your settlement date hun??? I am relaxing as much as I can but feel tireder than I did when I was working! So odd!

    all you lovely ladies and bubs!

    SOOO relieved that our little man is HEAD DOWN!!!!!!!!! Yippee bring on the VBAC!!!!! I won't go into detail because I have a whole thread about the annoying Ob but even that isn't bugging me now and I just can't wait to meet out little fella in a few weeks time!!! Last minute Fathers Day shopping today and a Hens day for a girl at MG! Yay! Have a great one all!

    Tan - whoooooohooooooo. What a good obedient boy you've got there. And finally. A male who obviously asked for directions!! So pleased for you that he's turned. VBAC here you come. I reckon you're going to be 11 days early this time - Izzy was pretty late wasn't she?

    Shell - yay on new furniture. How lovely. I know what you mean about purchasers that weren't quite discussed, let alone agreed(!) with DH.

    Kass - everything I've read says that your firstborn is more likely to regress a little, rather than grow up more quickly. Izzy certainly got a bit sookier and baby-like when Elena was born. She's back to her very precocious self now though. I think the rule of thumb is that your first will go through a bit of a jealousy phase, but that your second will do things a bit quicker because they'll have No. 1 to teach them - God help us!!

    I can't tell you all how much happier I've woken up this morning. Elena was in bed asleep by 9pm, Izzy by 8pm. Ellie woke at 3am for a bottle which DH gave her while I expressed. She woke at 6.50 am, took a bottle from me and is now happily playing on her mat. DH has gone off to golf and Izzy has only just woken up. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, my pear trees are getting more and more blossoms on them every day and for today at least, the world is a nice place to be.

    Kass - Your brave trying to go without pain medication! As soon as there is unexplained crying that isn't a result of hunger or being too warm/cold or a wet nappy I start slathering on the Bonjela. If there is still crying after that I whip out the Panadol. Usually the Bonjella does the trick though.

    Lulu - Great to hear everything is looking up now!

    Tan - on little man heading in the right direction! I just briefly checked out the other thread. I would def write a letter to that hospital about that horrid doctor.

    Shell - Woohoo on the new furniture!!! I bet it looks great. Your DH should get over the buffet, just have it delivered and if he says anything just say that you have had it for ages



    Okey Dokey, sorry for the lameo personals but I have carpets to clean and clothes to hang and walls to wash. Juz has gone to Melb for the weekend and I have spring cleaning fever in a bad way (much easier without him around ). Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!!!

    Hi all! Happy Father's Day to all the daddies!

    Ellie gave her dad a 'Dad's Bag' from Darrell Lee and she made him a card! Well scribbled on some paper anyway lol! We had a busy day catching up with my dad, DH's dad and his grandad. And I ate way too much food!

    Tan - YAY on your little prince, what a good boy hey? LOL I don't think he asked for directions though, what man does that? I think he used a GPS! VBAC here you come! Settlement is in 2 weeks but we won't be moving in until the floors are ripped up and replaced, hoping it will be done sometime in November. Lucky for us we have sold this house to my BIL and future SIL and they are happy for us to stay until the major renos are finished in the new place.

    Lulu - so glad that things are looking up hun!

    Shell - YAY on the new furniture. Tell your DH that you deserve the buffet lol, cause you really really do!

    Kass- congrats on sorting things out with Clint hun. I'm also reading Toddler tactics, its worth a read! I'm feeling much more relaxed about this stage now and beyond.

    M - hope you had a productive afternoon in the garden. I want to start a vegie patch when we are settled in our new place. I have only ever grown herbs so should be interesting, may have to ask your advice lol! What are you growing?

    Sarah - yay for spring cleaning! Hhhhmmmm nesting already????

    Dan - how are you going hun? Hope all is well!

    Hello to anyone I missed and sorry! Gonna head off and relax with DH, been such a busy weekend and I'm exhausted. Hoping that Ellie sleeps in tomorrow morning! Catch ya's all later.

    Hi all gorgeous mummies,
    Tan - on your little spunkie man being head down. VBAC here you come! Have you been talking to Izzy about becoming a big sister? Is her room all organised or what did you end up doing?

    Sangie - OMG how exciting that settlement is coming up so coming and doing reno's, YAY!!! Be prepared that Elena may not sleep in her new room for a while. Took Livvy over a week to sleep in her new room, GGGGRRRR!!!!

    D - Fantastic news that things are looking up between you and DH now. Keep up the great work darl. How's little man's walking going? Just about running?

    Kass - YAY on working things out with Clint. I can just picture Annabelle walking around backwards in circles. It would be so gorgeous. Gee they make us laugh at the moment don't they. I love this age and it's obvious that you are too. I see your signature says you are going to start TTC#2 soon, YAY!

    Lulu - OMG how amazing that your little princess is taking a bottle and still b/f. You are doing amazingly well. Has Izzy shown any interest in b/f when Elena does? How is Izzy adjusting to being a big sister? Is she gentle with her little sister or not really give her much attention? Is Izzy still having two sleeps a day for you or down to one?

    Shelle - I'm jealous that you have finished your spring clean. I so want mine finished too. Enjoy your visitors and we'll chat soon gorgeous.

    Sarah - How's the spring cleaning going? I'm doing the same thing. We've only been in here a few months and it is already filthy. Going to get Dave to take Livvy out for the day over the weekend so I can scrub the floors with help. How's your gorgeous man going? Has he settled back in home after being a jet setting bubba?

    So who's toddlers have their molars? Livvy is showing no sign of getting her molars. I really want them through so she can eat more different foods.

    How amazing is this sunshine!!! Livvy and I have spent basically the last week outside playing. I love this weather. My little girl is growing up so big I can't believe it. Whenever Dave does anything it is an absolute guarantee that his little shadow is right there beside him 'helping'. She is getting so incredibly independant I can't believe that either. Her eating has improved dramatically and eats all day long. I just can't believe how good things are with livvy at the moment. I have finally learnt to put playing with livvy infront of the housework. Mind you my house is an absolutely pigsty but Livvy and I are having a ball. I think I need to work out somehow to fit both in my day .
    Absolutely no luck making Livvy a big sister but hey it has to happen at some stage, doesn't it??? Even Dave had high hopes this month but I have got all my AF symptoms so the evil witch will show her face soon. Dave is frustrated this month and said "right that's it. Next month we are doing twice a day everyday, LOL! Like I'm going to put out that much, LOL!! I got a referral to my FS from the GP today so it's off to the FS end of October to try and get knocked up, LOL!!

    Alright I'm off to do more housework. Hope it's worth it when I'm done.

    Chat later gorgeous mummies!!

    awww dan...af arrived for me too. One day early and in the middle of the casino with no pads on me!! HOW DAMN RUDE OF HER!!

    Dan and D - sorry to hear that AF arrived - good luck with the FS Dan! I know what you mean about the sunshine - we have loved every minute of it, makes it so much easier to get up in the morning. We don't have a yard (well it's all deck and pool) so I've been exploring lots of little parks for Iz and she's loved that! I have tried her on her big girl bed a few times for day naps and she just gets up and plays with her toys - even with her sleeping bag on so I have given up for now because I simply don't have the energy to resettle her a million times a day. Once bub is here and we are a bit more settled with him, I will try again. We decided to keep her in her own room to minimise disruption for her(pics are in my gallery! ) I will take some of the nursery and post too for you guys to see!

    Lis - that is great that you are able to stay put til you are ready to move in. DH and I had 8 weeks with friends in between selling and buying and we had to put everything in storage - major PITA. Izzy drew DH a pic too - she LOVES her crayons and scribbles away!

    D - Hope you are feeling better hun.

    Sarah - nesting a bit early love!! This sunny weather is great for the spring cleaning motivation though! Hope you had a good weekend lovely!

    Lulu - So glad you are having an easier time of it hun - fingers crossed it keep sup for you lovely.

    to everyone I have missed!

    Im copying and pasting frm elsewhere - sorry way tired and need my bath and bed!

    Well I have DH home probably until baby is born! He subs for production companies and there is no point calling a few now to get work, when he might not start for a few weeks and then need to tell them he needs a few weeks off! I love having him home - gives me a break and also gives him time with our girl and me!

    I had another night from hell last night - poor Izzy must have had a tummy ache, and neither of us slept from around 2-til 5:30. We had nice cuddles and kisses though when she was wide awake with me in her big girl bed! Thank goodness DH was home, so I could have a sleep in this morning.

    My suitcase is on the floor of our room! Heehee! It has pjs in it, some pads and that's it but now when people ask me I can say YES I've started packing for hospital! I CAN'T wait to meet our little guy!!!!

    Tan- I like the way you think about the being negative or positive and that exactly how we think. It's all part of being a bubba and becoming a parent meant trying to enjoy the crazy times also
    Toddler Tactics? Where do I find this?
    Yay for DH being home from now on till bubs is here!!! How does Iz go in her big bed? I was looking at a really beautiful one the other day but didn't know if its a little early?

    Lulu- Things seem to be looking up very much so in your house! Well done to you and your family in the hard work you put in. It's obviouly paying off! It's a amazing how much better we take on the day when the sun is out!

    D- Sorry to hear you have acute sinusitis. Can you please explain what it is ? Damn AF! Keep trying I want another pg to live vicariously (bad sp sorry) through!

    Jade- Hows your foot? God what a strang bone to break! Will it be easy to mend?

    Sangie- Did Ellie end up having that sleep in?

    Dan- TTC#2 in 5months if eveything is in order, relationship, my own mind etc because right now Im very foggy in my head and now wouldn't be a good time But 5months of good weather I bet will change how Im feeling Good luck at the FS if it comes to that. Cant wait to hear Livvy will be a big sister!


    Ok mummies Im very sorry if I have missed anybody.
    At the moment I really need to get out of the house as Im thinking to much and going INSANE!!!
    Something stupid set it off, you'll all think Im an idiot but Im telling you anyway.
    Dp sister posted a photo of her when she was a baby on facebook with a caption saying "Is that you Annabelle???"
    Now I know it sounds petty but this really p!ssed me off as everything Annabelle does hes sister doesn't think it has any part of me. Trust me Annabelle is alot more like me then Dp sister!
    Example everytime I say Annabelle is doing something like how I would do it Dp sister says " No I dont think so, Annabelle is doing it more like blah blah would."
    She has even said Annabelle looks like my step sister! My step sister has NO blood relation to us what so ever!
    To be honest Annabelle looks like her dad until you see pics of me at her age. She is very much like my family.
    But to try and make me feel as though my child has no part of me makes me feel sick and really p!ssed off! Even clint said the photo didn't look like Annabelle Help?!
    She prob isn't meaning to be an idiot but makes me mad thinking she honestly thinks my baby has nothing of me, because she does! Maybe I need people to agree with me look in the gallery and tell me if Annabelle has anything of me. God Im sad now And seriously need to get out of this house!

    Hiya all!

    Dan & D - sorry about nasty AF

    Dan - good luck at the FS hun. Are you going to go on clomid? Thanks for the warning re: Elena not sleeping in new house. I'm going to take some time off work when we move so if Ellie decides not to sleep then at least I won't have to get up and go to work! Yep loving the sunshine here too! Livvy sounds absolutely gorgeous following her dad around.

    Tan - yay for your DH being home! Take full advantage and make sure you get some rest before your prince arrives! Is Izzy sleeping better now?

    Kass - LOL at Annabelle looking like your step sister, how ridiculous! Chin up hun, just ignore them, sounds like it isn't worth being too upset over it as clearly they have no idea! I hope you got out of the house.

    Lulu - hope things are still going well with you and your princesses.

    Can't remember who asked about molars but Ellie doesn't have hers yet either. She does have big red swollen gums though so maybe they aren't too far away. Planning on taking my girl shopping today - target has 20% off kids clothes so might go check it out! Hope you all have a super fantastic day

    Hello gorgeous ones!

    Kass - sorry to hear about DP's sister hun - just ignore her hun and I hope you were able to get out of the house! You can buy Toddler Tactics through the online store on here babe. I got mine on the Huggies book club site though.

    Lis - how did you go shopping today?? Pick up any bargains?? I saw some gorgeous non PINK stuff at Target the other day might have to go and layby some stuff for summer for her! Izzy is sleeping much better! Yay! She still wakes early some days but most days she gets to at least 7. She is on one day nap now and it is generally 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours which is great. Shes just a happy chatty girl - I swear she is learning one new word each day now! Today it was "more" too cute! Izzy has had her molars for a while now - but she has huge gaps where the eye teeth will come through - looks pretty funny!

    to everyone else - Im tired and need bed! Im 37 weeks tomorrow girls can you believe it! Im SO excited! Off to have acupuncture, have chats with Kelly and going to the Henci Goer seminar on Sunday so am feeling just grand! I just can't wait to birth this little man!

    Off to the St Andrews market in the morning - I broke one of our lovely hippy mugs so we need more! Have a great weekend all - mwa!!

    Tan I was very excited to see some non-pink things at Target! I got some cute little t-shirts (marked as $7.99 but scanned at $3.99!) in yellow, purple and pale blue. Woo hoo! Don't get me wrong I love pink but there is only so much pink clothing I can take.

    Quiet in here, hope everyone is well and had a great weekend. Ellie has just decided to drop a day sleep so now we are on one sleep straight after lunch for around 1 1/2 hours - am hoping she starts sleeping a bit more as she is a bit cranky by dinner time. I tried putting her down for a power nap late yesterday afternoon but she refused and the tears started!

    Gonna go eat my lunch, have a lovely day all!

    I know what you mean Lis. I had all the "new season collection" on the dining table the other day waiting to be folded and put away- it was just a sea of pink. Fortunately we've now offset the pink with a red and navy In the Night Garden t-shirt - I swear Izzy saw them hanging up in Target before I did!

    I've just been into Pumpkin Patch looking for something for friends' who have just had another little girl and had to really hold myself back - my girlfriend who went through IVF is expecting a little boy in February and the boy stuff is sooooo gorgeous.

    Things are really looking up here. Ellie is now full time on bottles (unfortunately my milk dried up really quickly, but that's nothing given that my little girl is now a lot happier). The down side is that she now has constipation. Izzy got it too when she first went on the soy but she got over it very quickly. I've also started seeing a psychologist who says that I don't actually have PND but "reactive depression" - apparently a non-hormonal thing and its situational, so when things settle down with Ellie, I start getting some sleep and we get a bit of a routine it will hopefully all go away. In the meantime she is promoting lots of "me" time, including shopping, so I can't argue with that!!

    Better go ladies - dinner to organise for Izzy. Sorry for no personals. Tan - getting oh so close now sweetie - how is the name game coming along??

    Lis - Im going to go tomorrow and from what I've seen there are some really cute thing so I am a bit excited!!

    Lulu - so good to hear things are on the improve hun, poor Elena being constipated though, I hope it settles for her quickly. Glad you are seeing someone too hun, makes a huge difference being able to talk to someone about how you are feeling! We have 2 names, not 100% sure about either one but we seriously have no other options!!! Boys are really hard! I think once he is here we will just know!

    Kass - I hope you are doing well hun!

    everyone else! Im tired of being tired and whinging about it so Im off to bed! Hope you are all well and bubs are treating you all well!

    Just a quickie - YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Elena slept through last night. Bottle at 9.30 pm and then didn't wake up until 6.03 am. I know the time exactly because it was my turn to get up for her before 6am, and DH's turn after 6am - only just snuck in for an interruption free night.
