    hey guys, its so quiet in here!

    Well I have two more days left of my temp job and then I got a full time role in recruitment consulting! this has been my dream job for years but honestly thought I would never make it. I am so excited!

    Monster has been so fantastic. He is loving child care and cries every time we leave there lol
    My sister has had him a few days last week as she is on holidays, and he will go there one or two days again this week. But as of next week he will be there full time hours. Im really happy with the centre though!

    Dh and I are going well. Although our time together is so limited now. We really only talk while we are making lunches, doing dishes etc. But we appreciate each other so much more at the moment.

    Monster is running everywhere and saying more things all the time. He understands every single thing we say. We gotta be careful now!



    Love to you all xx

    Hey D - nice to hear from you! Sounds like you are going great guns!
    We are well - still a week off DD so not too optimistic although am still having pre-labour on and off. My acupuncturist is going to ramp things up with some electricity this week so hopefully that will send me off the edge! Was just saying to DH I don't care if I go voer, I don't care because I want our little man to choose his b'day but if we get anywhere near the c/s date booked I know I will start focusing on the negative which so far in the last few months I haven't done. Come out sooner rather than later little one!
    to you all and GO HAWKS! Whoo hoo! Off to have a celebration lunch with my parents today - they are SO excited!

    Hi all!

    D- congrats on the job, that is fantastic! Elena understands a lot too, definitely have to be careful what we say too as she tries to copy EVERYTHING we say lol!

    T - yay for the prelabour, your body is doing what it needs to! Fingers crossed for you that your little man does decide to come sooner rather than later. But with all this prelabour then I'd say you are in with a great chance hun.

    Hello to you all, hope everyone is well. We have been busy this weekend - grand final BBQ at a friends and lots of shopping! We chose our floor tiles for our house and have been shopping for carpet! Now just have to organise tradesmen (leaving that up to DH lol!). Anyway gotta go, just quickly popping in before I take Ellie to play outside, such gorgeous weather here this weekend! Mwah xxxx

    Hi everyone!!!

    I have been very MIA!! Sorry I have just spent this afternoon, between washing and cleaning up the bathroom, reading what has been going on in here.

    Tan - can't believe you are nearly there!!! Reading your posts you are such a positive person, and I really hope that you get what you want with your little man, but please remember that you have done everything possible, so no matter what happens you will have a beautiful little boy in the end.

    Lulu - wow want an adventure Elena has given you lately, so happy that she is taking the bottle and things are looking up.

    Kirsten - Mia will walk when she is ready, Ethyn walked at just over 13 months, its great to catch up with what other bubs are doing, but its also hard not to compare them with each other.

    D - glad to hear that your temping is going well, and all the best with your new venture

    Dan - Ethyn loves being outside at the moment too, he cracks it big time when we take him back inside!!!

    Sorry can't go back any further, but a big HI to everyone that I have missed

    Things here are hectic to say the least. Work is full on, I am training a new girl, trying to understand what another girl does as she leaves on mat leave this Friday, trying to do my own job and trying to help out everyone else!!! Things are changing from Wednesday, hopefully will be less stressful.
    Ethyn is walking around everywhere and running everywhere!! Climbing on the lounge and trying to climb in his highchair!! He has 12 teeth, am thinking that his eye teeth are giving him a bit of grief every now and again. He is still sick on and off, has been very wheezy lately, one of the docs in Adelaide diagnosed him with asthma, but when we came home got him checked out again, she said he was too young to be diagnosed with asthma, can't tell til at least 2 and then not properly til he's 6 or 7 when he can blow in the thingy. So not sure really what is going on, she was concerned with the wheeziness, so perscribed him with ventolin nebules and we hired a nebuliser which has appeared to fixed up the wheeziness, but now we have another ear infection. He has had them on and off since Feb this year, am going to see an ENT specialists on December. I got his hearing checked a little while back, no issues there, they said that his ears recover quite well from ear infections, so that's one good thing I suppose.
    Got my hands on some of the new colours itti bitti dlish!! They rock!!!
    He is outside more now, but with that he had his first graze on his knee the other day, fell over on the concrete and was wearing shorts!!! Last week he fell on the top step out the back, the step is about 1 metre of the ground!! All he got was a graze on his nose. My mum and dad are coming up this weekend and we are putting a fence around the step to stop these falls from happening!! Overall he loves walking up and down the steps, but I still get nervous when he does!!!
    Ok I think that's it from me, will try and get on here more often!!

    Yay for the Hawks. Obviously would have been a whole lot better if the Eagles had won but hey, with the season they've had that was just never going to happen was it!! My girlfriend and her family are HUGE Hawks fans - so much so that her sister in the UK lost coverage in the second quarter so called her Mum in Melbourne, who put the phone next to the tv so she could hear the rest of the game!!!

    Danni - great to hear that things are going so well for you.

    Tan - Sounds like a great philosophy - no point getting your knickers in a knot when it can't make things move faster. In fact, will probably slow things down and hey, must easier to give birth without knickers tied around you :-)

    Lee - good to hear from you. I hope things settle down with Ethyn and its not asthma. Great to see them all running and jumping though isn't it - impossible to keep all these little people still these days. Izzy's a huge lover of the great outdoors too.

    Very exciting news for us - we're off to Sydney at the end of next week. It will be our first real holiday since our honeymoon in 2006, except for a couple of days down south last year. Really looking forward to the holiday but not sure I'm looking forward to wrestling Izzy on a plane for a few hours! Just how do you keep a toddler who refuses to sit still quiet as we fly across the country??

    Enjoy your holiday Lulu, sounds like you are very overdue for one! As for keeping Izzy happy maybe get some 'new' toys or ones she hasn't seen for a while. Does she like to draw? Crayons and colouring books might be good. Maybe 5kg of sultanas I have the same worries - have the chance to head to QLD later this month and dreading the plane ride with my little tornado. Oh well, haven't decided if I will go yet - DH's airfare will be paid for by his employer but mine won't and we will be spending up big soon with house renovations.

    Lee - lovely to hear from you, hope it isn't asthma

    Tan - how is the 'natural' induction going? Must be almost time for you to put a nasty message on your answering machine, are your friends/family likely to start bugging you? I hope not!!!

    Kass - how was your party????? YAY on the house!

    Ok that's it for me lol! Suppose I should make the last 2 hours of my workday constructive! I think Ellie is a bit off colour again - she is pale as a ghost and seems to be more tired than usual. Fingers crossed she is not getting sick, as usual I'm blaming it on teething lol. Which may not be too off the mark considering her lovely fruity nappy efforts over the last 2 days (sorry TMI!). Catch ya's xxxxx

    Thought about the sultantas - more than happy to give over my entire carry on luggage allowance to sultanas if it will keep her happy!! She doesn't like drawing at all unfortunately. I'm going to get her a new In the Night Garden Book and a couple of other new little bits and pieces and hopefully that will help. Otherwise, is it wrong to give your toddler valium???? Maybe you should hold off on committing to a trip to Qld before you hear how mine goes ;-) Hope Ellie is feeling better soon.

    So sorry Kass - missed that it was your birthday. I hope you had a lovely day.

    If you're packing 5kg of sultanas you will need the equivillant in nappies

    LOL Lulu you can be our experiment! Yeah I'd hate to see Izzy's nappies after 5kg of sultanas. New toys sounds like the way to go, not sure about the valium though?! Is that for you too lol?

But In the night garden is on, and the girls are at Mum's so is a bit quieter now!!! Well at least for half an hour!!!

    Lulu - Yay on the holiday!! OK, this might sound naughty but how bout one of those portable DVD players?? She can watch iggle piggle the whole trip!!!! You and DH might get sick of it but??? Yes, and def lots of snacks.
    Lee - I have some itti bitti dlish, they are nice hey. My little man can undo all his mcn's though, snaps and all, little bugger, so half the time he is free balling round the house

    oh Tan. Hang in there sweetie. Your little man WILL be coming soon. If you're anything like me, you just have babies that are fashionably late. FWIW, Elena was 9 days overdue when she decided to make her grand appearance and she was born in literally 13 minutes - 4 cms dilated to on my chest in that time frame. So, while she took her good sweet time getting here, she didn't take her time when she was "on the way"! All that prelabour you're having is only making it a quicker, easier VBAC journey for your little man so try not to get too down

    BBL - just wanted to give Tan a hug

    Thanks girls! Well I am 2 cms dilated already! Very excited that all this back pain I am having is for a good reason! Also didn't have to fight at all to change my c/s date so that is a HGUE relief....

    Off to have a bath - sorry about the pathetic personals YET again.... to you all lovelies... xoxo

    Great news Tan . here you come!!!! Have you got Izzy a present from her little brother or are you guys doing something different?

    Lulu - Have a great time in Sydney. Can't wait to hear all about your holiday with your gorgeous girls.

    Sarah - How's Noah?

    Sangie - Has Elena picked up or is she still pale and not well?

    Kass - Good to hear you enjoyed your 21st. Have fun moving. It's a horrible horrible job but it's nice to get into a house where you can unpack and settle in for a few years.

    AFM nothing exciting going on here. Livvy is being as gorgeous as ever and we are just loving it. She even slept for 11 hours last night. She must have known that mummy really really needed the sleep or she was going to loose the plot. She still only has the four front teeth top and bottom although the rest of gums are red and swollen. Fingers crossed she pushes though all four molars and eye teeth at the same time. Wishful thinking though I think, LOL!!
    No luck on the #2 front either. My chart is all funny this month too just to boot. It's only 19 days til my FS appt so hopefully things will be looking up then. i'm starting to think that Livvy may be an only child and trying to get comfortable with that idea, and I was, when Dave came out today with he really really wants another baby. Oh well only time will be the answer.

    Well i'm off to do some housework which has been majorily neglected lately.

    Chat soon,
    Dan & Livvy.

    hey there ladies and bubbas!


    Tan- Start pushing and see what happens! come on lil man and Vbac! Does Izzy have any clue whats going on?

    Dan- Dont get to comfy with the thought of Livvy being the only child! Anything can happen, plus you haven't even seen your FS yet so I reckon its good news all round coming your way and a bubs not far after have you tried acupuncture (really bad sp sorry, spell it out )


    Well ladies im also loving annabelle so very much at the moment, mind you the fight with vegies as made me HATE myself at the moment as I have been very on edge with moving etc, that when Annabelle makes it hard to even eat I have yelled at her more then once and HATE myself for it. I feel like the worst mummy in the world. Im having horrible thoughts that Annabelle will grow to be an angry, nasty, unlikable person because thats what mummy has showed her to be Plus this damn dog we got, poor lil thing I have no patience for it and I really hope Annabelle doesn't learn to be a nasty, cranky *****

    im a great mummy just get really affraid sometimes that because Im not acting perfect Annabelle wont be that good, loved person that i so wanther to be. sorry Ill stop rambling. Just does anyone else ever feel like this?
    Things will calm down once we have moved and the pup will be able to go outside, poor thing. Mummy will stop being on edge

    Tan - WOOOOOHOOOOO. Yay for you. Expecting any day to read your birth announcement. Sending you so much luck for a beautiful, quick, problem free VBAC.

    Kass - no. You're definitely not alone. Izzy has spent the entirety of her life either sick herself or with me being sick and grumpy the whole way through Elena's pregnancy, to how I am now - which is not a pretty picture a lot of the time. I get very annoyed at myself and feel incredibly guilty when I'm short tempered with both my gorgeous girls. Its never their fault and is only because I'm tired or so unhappy myself. I obviously don't know what Annabelle is like, but people are always telling me how incredibly happy Izzy always seems to be - its standard conversation with people about how she is always smiling/laughing and most people have never, ever seen her upset. I think you just need to try to step away when you feel one of "those times" coming on - emotionally/mentally if not physically - and then showering her with love, affection and your time when you do feel you can deal with it.

    Dan - Why is it that good people always seem to be the ones that have the troubles conceiving babies? You hear so many stories of useless gits that have no problems conceiving. Crossing everything for you that another gorgeous bub will soon find his/her way to you and Dave.

    Hiya all! Ok where's the hello smilie, I liked that one!

    Tan - throwing labour vibes your way..........hope you are well hun!

    Kass - ditto to what Lulu said, don't be too hard on yourself, we all get frustrated at times Good luck with the move.

    Dan - sorry to hear that TTC hasn't happened as quickly as you would like. Good luck with the FS and praying that a gorgeous little brother or sister for Livvy is just around the corner Elena is exactly the same as Livvy - four teeth on top and bottom and red/swollen gums everywhere else. These molars have been sitting just under her gums for weeks, just wish they would hurry up and cut!

    Lulu - you must be getting excited about sydney! Change of scenery will be great for you guys, have you been before! I love the sydney zoo!

    Well better keep moving - going shopping for new light fittings as we hate the ones in our new house (think 70's style mission brown even though the house is only 9 years old lol). Ellie seems to be ok now, she was off colour for a couple of days but now back to her tornado self!

    Have a lovely weekend all!
