    Ann - i disagree with your gay mate, took me a while (like a few years) but i have found a man who is not into porn, so they do exist. He appreciates nice looking women but doesn't need to look at porn - and it's not just words, in seven years, and heaps of access cos he works in IT, where lots of clients have heaps of porn on their hard drives, it's just not his thing, he considers it "cheating on your partner".

    Bilby also cruises furniture, then lets go, and i call it her "surfing", the arms come up and she is shrieking with delight - look at me, i 'm balancing!!! then will rock her hips adn do some dancing before KERPLOP on her bot. so cute. all preparation for walking i'm sure.

    Taralee, that is amazing that Evie can play independently at the toddler's play cafe thingo, wow - that sounds pretty darn advanced, go Evie!!!



    Nelly - good luck with the travel, hope it goes well for you hon

    All this talk about tantrums - we get screaming at many decibels for daring to put bilby in the stroller or sometimes it's the car seat. TOok me FIVE goes today at a shopping centre (calming her down inbetween) to get into the stroller again - i just had to ignore her and get it over with ASAP and start moving, then she stopped - so i felt like a monster, but we coudln't stay ALL DAY

    in the darn food court!!!

    still having enormous problems getting bilby to bed at night - well early morning. On pillows in the playpen still the only winner there. I thought you weren't meant to put pillows in the cot, so i'm prolly doing the wrong thing, but we're at our wits end with this!!!

    i try and get stuff done when she's asleep, gee it's hard.

    so blanche don't worry about "getting behind" - you are feeling unwell with preg plus have another bub - you are not lazy. Feeling unwell saps your energy and motivation. Are your IL's nice? Are you going back to your house, or your own house (like, is The End in sight?) or are you with IL's indefinately? I'm glad you didn't have all those kids (day of funeral) on your own.

    I went and bought an armful of childproof things and a gate today, sick of hearing dh say "i'll get around to it, hardware stores are the best places to buy them" - but then not actually make it happen. So kmart baby section did the job for me, will experiment with them this weekend, and go buy more of the ones that suit our furniture/cupboards etc the best. DH is the best person for saying YES to everything you ask, but what he actually DOES is another matter! he's so easy going, wants to please everyone - great qualities - but i am past it, if the action doesn't meet the words, i don't wanna hear it dh!!!!!

    Just sold $400 of mainly 2nd hand nappies in nb and small, and some new medium MCN that didn't suit us, to a woman interstate, so now i can do a bit of retail therapy and have a few massages - yeh!!! It was sad to sell them, all the nb and small sizes bilby can't fit into anymore, i really had hoped we got to keep them for a sibling, so sending off that big box, it was more than postage, it was letting go of having another baby for me. Despite yucko delivery of bilby when so much went wrong, i STILL would love, in the bottom of my heart, to have another bub. I literally tear up reading posts of people who have just had their babies and post nb pics. Maybe it's just BF hormones and my diet of iced coffee and not much else! i am so buzzed but it's all that is keeping me going.

    YAY!!! I was worried about Jake in the plane. I'm so glad he did well!!!

    Gigi... I would give a pillow & she slept well. I use one with Jovie when we are co-sleeping. When she comes into bed with me she bf's and then pops her head on the pillow & falls asleep. If there is no pillow for her she takes ages to fall asleep. I gratefully put a pillow there for her!

    My poor baby!!!!! she didnt eat a lot of lunch so i thought she'd eat a lot of dinner. well she didnt want any of it so i just gave her some custard, which she ate but as soon as we took her out of the chair, everything and i mean EVERYTHING came up. including fruit from morning tea....8 hours ago!
    she's gone to sleep happily enough though...but the poor little thing. i hope its just teeth.

    Thats my exciting news too, she's going to sleep on her own now! i just give her a quick cuddle and put her down, and as long as i stand where she can see me she goes off to sleep. i'll work towards moving closer to the door.
    i'm obviously not expecting her to sleep thru tonight

    Im here too...just having one of them days...Chelsea is driving me nuts. Wont keep her nappy on...keeps taking it off....and feed time is a chore. She wont eat...HELP.

    I know kids wont let themselves starve...but she wont eat anything i give her. Its all 'Yuck' and chucks it on the floor and then climbs out of her high chair OR stands up and gets on top of the chair tray thingy..i call it table dancing...funny but so annoying and not to mention so dangerous.

    I guess she is drinking water so its a start. But im at my wits end

    I'm here... been out for most of the day. Went shopping, Jovie isn't keen on shopping atm. She wants to climb out of the pram & run away LOL its cute what she does though.

    Kim, we've had a few days where Jovie won't eat anything I try to feed her, but will try to get into anything I eat. So I've sat down within reach of food she can have & she's wound up eating. It took me 2 days of no solids crossing her lips before I figured that one out LOL. BUT all in all, she's much better than Matilda. Matilda does behavioural startvation, meaning she won't eat as a control mechinism. Cheeky bugga.

    Jovie is running around the house atm literally with a fruit strap chatting to the dogs who are following her & hoping she drops it.

    and the boundary testing begins... having all this new found freedom to move means that's all they want to do ALL the time! which is a pain in the bum, when all you want to do is get through lunch/get them dressed/change their nappy/go shopping! some of the things I have done to redirect those little challenges (and believe me they don't always work) are let Aston feed himself. He has been doing that for a couple of months now, and in the last week or so has wanted to use a fork, so he has been. He sits at the table with us to have breakfast/lunch/ and most of the time dinner, and enjoys the whole social occasion of it I think. He will only eat what we are having now. Getting dressed after he has had bath is preluded with a nudie run around for a while, then I lay him down, which he protests about until I start singing him nursery ryhmes like tinkle little star, and the little green frog. I do the same thing with nappy changing, and do it on the floor now. we had a struggle for a couple of weeks, and I just kept saying the same thing, the more you wiggle around and protest the longer its gonna take baby boy... and now he has a little whinge, but doesn't wiggle around and carry on...he seems to have figured out that if I lay here, she does it quicker and its all over and I can go back to what I was doing.

    Its funny because with Laura I remember being absolutlely mortified when she chucked a tantrum in public, and wished the earth would open up and swallow me whole... with Aston I pick him up, and put him under may arm in an areoplane hold and continue on my way. I had to do that today actually, and a woman commented to me, well that's one way to get around, and I just said, yep - works for me, and didn't even feel anything, no moritification to be felt at all... just a confident mummy who knew what she was doing worked. Seems that on my journey of motherhood, I have actually learnt a few things along the way....and even I'm surprised about that!!

    We went to Australia Zoo today, laura, Nathan, aston and I, and it was brilliant. had so much fun. Aston is at such a fantastic age to look at wonder at everything. We spent at least 20mins watching the otters chase each other around in and out of the water. He thought it was hysterical. he patted any animal he could, from kangaroos, to lambs, calves, and was not particularly impressed that he couldn't get into the tiger cubs!

    hope all goes well at your hospital appointment Blanche, enjoy the retail therapy after.

    Tara :hugs: is your morning sickness worse this time around? btw are you going to find out what colour you are having?

    Christy - do you need the monkey harness back hun, happy to send it to you. Its been brilliant, and I definately will get one.

    Kim - as easy as it is for me to say this...try and relax. because she will not starve herself. Tomorrow is a new day, and yes she is testting how far she can push her mother for sure...just try not to let her know that she is getting a reaction, because as the saying goes, attention is attention no matter how you get it, misbehaving, or doing something cute. :hugs:

    Kim, evie hasnt eaten for the last few days either so i just keep giving her milk and water instead. then this afternoon she grabbed a piece of bread straight out of the bag from nanny and at it like she hadnt eaten in weeks. i also shovelled in some pureed apple in between bread bites. then for dinner i just made her a toasted cheese sandwich, she ate a bit of it so at least thats something.
    Vicky - i think it's made worse this time around by also having to run around after evie. getting her meals and changing nappies is a killer...but i have also thrown up just from opening a window...go figure.
    i've kinda been panicking lately about having a boy. i know how that sounds, trust me. and i dont mean any offence to any of your lovely boys, but i think i'm kinda worried about how i will bond, since i have had issues with men my whole life...dh is the only one who i dont freeze up around when he comes too close to me. anyways, thats by the by. i know this is going to sound even worse, and i dont know if i mentioned this before but truth be told, i didnt want to be pg. when that test went positive i cried for hours. i didnt feel ready, i felt like i was cheating evie out of something and i didnt feel like we were ready for another responsibility, i have gotten more and more excited about it and now i'm really happy and feel so lucky..but i still feel like i will be a bit disappointed if its a boy and its really eating me up inside
