    Took L back to the GP today because the corner of his eye looked...I dunno...kinda lumpy? She's referred us to an eye specialist to have it checked out Soooo sick of taking him to see drs and trips to hospital, etc etc.

    Holly - I see Thomas was a big boy at birth...how is he going now? I had L weighed today and he's up to 8.8kg and 70cm!! I'm not too worried because he is exclusively b'fed and there's not much I can do about it really but sometimes I freak out that if he doesn't slow down soon he's going to be massive!

    L has been a bit unsettled at bed time the last few nights...i'm hoping the dreaded Teething Fairy (the evil twin sister of the Tooth Fairy LOL!) isn't about to visit...gotta happen eventually though I guess...



    Still sleeping well during the day though thank god and woke at 1.30am for a feed and then slept through till 6am last night so hopefully he will be OK tonight....

    Hello,

    Well I am a bit lost tonight. Kimberley is at my parents house. Thankfully she is coming home tomorrow!! Mum said that she slept through for them, so I felt a little less guilty for leaving her there, and she is being her normal cheeky self. Only has any real signs of an infection 1st thing in the mornings now.

    She bit her own arm the other day and screamed.. IF only I could make her understand that those teeth hurt. She is still trying to catch my finger to shove in there at any oppurtunity. Amazing how cunning she gets to try it..

    Hoody, I know how much the BF means to you, but you have done the best you can. You stuck it out longer than most would've. I believe that any BF is better than none, so you are doing well. I can't give a full feed, but Kimberley loves having the comfort and getting what she can both morning and night..

    I am off to bed now. The idea of a full week is killing me!!! Don't think I will agree in a hurry to help out again...

    Hi Guys
    Sorry I've been awol. Just busy at home. Trying to get cleaning done and that sort of thing. Nothing exciting.

    Heather - I hope the antibiotics have kicked in ok. Must be pretty scary for you with the penicillin allergy. Lucky you have your folks around to help out. Fingers crossed that work do keep you on. It will be nice to have that stability!

    Hoody - Mollys sleeps sound really good, especially at night. I know you wanted to keep up with the BF's, but you are doing the best you possibly can. You have been so strong about it. If Molly is happy then you should be too!!

    Willow - god the rash and irritated eye must have been awful. Hopefully its all settled down now.

    Holly84 - sounds like your growing boy is just growing. I'd just keep feeding him when he needs it.

    Oh and Willow I know what you mean. I can't believe how quickly time has gone. Jacob will be 5 months next week and it just seems to have gone so quickly.

    Hi Suse, Limeslice and Dragonbub - hope you and your bubs are going well.

    Well thats it from me. Pretty boring I know.
    Oh I took Jacob in to get weighed the other day and he is up to 7.8kgs!

    Hello All,
    Sorry have been MIA for a bit, busy doing "stuff" like uni and business stuff and a tiny bit of work but not too much.

    Sooo many personals to catch up on, I am not sure how I will go.

    Hoody - bummer about DD being sick. I hope all is better now? If it is not one then it is the other for you, Well done on the BFing so far, I agree with the others, you have done a wonderful job! It is great that you are still keen to keep up the feeds, but gee, you have surpassed brilliance in its most literal sense, you are a star!!

    Willow - we missed you hun Sorry to hear about conjunc - silly doc, sometimes they don't know what they are talking about (or care for that matter). Glad to hear sleeps are good, and hoping a quick entry into the world for your little pearlers.

    June - wow 7.8 kilos! Well done on a healthy bubba. My lil fella is around 8 ish, I will have to get him weighed soon. He has just had a growth spurt and shot up, so he is now 69 cm . He is looking a bit more proportional now and not such a "big" head LOL.

    Heather - LOL about the biting pain! Caden sucks his thumb and has learnt pretty quickly that sucking and biting are mutually exclusive He bites his hand now, not his thumb. Eventually your DD will get it...

    Holly - sounds like teeth all right. I am def thinking of getting a Jolly. I might pick one up this week. I also want a swing for outside, seems like something fun to get for a bit of fresh air. Is Thomas having big feeds when he wakes? If so it is probably just a growth spurt. If not, he might just need cuddles to go back to sleep. I guess it depends on how long it goes on as you are gonna get pretty exhausted if it continues!

    Have I missed anyone?

    Well, all good here. I think some top teeth might me moving cos we have had some interesting grizzling in the evening. Caden still sleeps, but will wake up crying then settle himself back down. This is VERY rare for him as once he goes down he normally doesn't make a sound. The top gum looks more protruding as well, and today it seemed a bit whiter.

    June - was it your DS that had top teeth? How long after the bottom teeth did the tops come through? Caden has had the bottoms now for a month...

    Anyhoo will catch up soon (more often) now that I am freer

    Dragonbub- I hope the teeth calm down soon but WTG Caden for settling himself if he wakes up.

    June- 7.8kg wow thats great you must have some really good booby juice

    Heather- How did you go with your night without Kimberly? My Mum is having both of my girls over night on Saturday and i'm so anxious about leaving them. At least i will be there to put them both to bed then i'm picking them up b4 10am so its not too bad but still hard leaving Molly for so long buth ey now she is having both BB and formula i can have a night off.

    Willow- Sorry to hear about Logan's eye. I really hope its settled down and all fine now. I remember getting a full squirt of baby shampoo into DD1's eye and that was bad enough without a reaction to it Sounds like you have a big boy too at over 8kg.

    Holly- I hope your nights are improving again if not yet in week or 2 the frequent feeds will be a distant memory.

    SUse, Twinsis, Limeslice and anyone i've missed hope you are all well.

    Well i am pleased to announce we are all healthy For the first time since the beginning of March we are a happy healthy household! We did have a rough weekend with DD1 been bitten by a spider and DH getting the tummy bug that went through the family but for now we are good i hope it stays this way. Molly is 100% over her bug and is back to her normal self. I am amazed at how happy and content she is now that she is having formula along with her BF's. I always thought i had an unsettled baby but i think with my supply issues she must have just been starving all the time as the change in her has been like night and day. In the last week or so she also looks like she is starting to stack on the weight which is nice at last. Everytime anyone asks how old she is i get the comments 'oh but she's so tiny blah blah blah. I am having a body shop party here on Friday night with all my friends with kids and also the girls from playgroup, Then out all night on Saturday for a friends birthday so we have a nice busy weekend ahead of us. Well hope you are all well.

    Hello all! Sorry I've not come by sooner to say hi, I was going through a bit of a rough spot with some stomach issues and stuff, but my doctor is sorting me out and I'm finally starting to feel better. You've all been busy! Glad to read you are all doing well.

    I was naughty the last week and a half. I let Cameron sleep in bed with us as I found him comforting while I was feeling so poorly, and he's been trying hard to get over yet another cold poor guy. He had been sleeping 8-10 hours overnight in his crib, but my letting him sleep in our bed dropped that back down to 5-7. So now I have to get him used to being in his crib and longer stretches of sleep again.

    I signed him up for swim classes starting in May and I'm getting really excited to take him. I bought him THE cutest little swim suit! DH and I are going to take him to the pool tomorrow for his first "swim". I want to get him used to it before his class starts. Should be a lot of fun.

    The weather here has been gorgeous so I'm trying to go out with Cam for walks everyday. I've met a few other moms here so the loneliness I've been feeling is much better. It feels great to finally have some adult company again!

    In 3 weeks we're headed down to Vancouver to visit the grandparents then I'm going to Calgary to visit my sister. I was dreading it when my stomach was acting up but now I'm getting really excited!!

    Hi all,
    not sure what happened with my last post. I am positive that when I wrote mine the previous two weren't there. Sorry if it looked like I had ignored them.

    DH took the day off work today and the three of us went into the city and saw the Andy Warhol exhibition. It was great fun and Jacob loved all the colours and big paintings. We even got our photos taken in a booth that does them up like the coloured Marilyn Monroe pictures that he did. Very cool! Jacob discovered that the gallery was very echoy though and decided that squealing at the top of his lungs was hilarious fun. We got a few raised eyebrows, but most people laughed at us as we tried to quieten him down.

    Willow - we had an almost identical night the other night, only up once. Although last night he was up twice again. Maybe one day..... I do hope you get some good news with the eye specialist. Hopefully it will work itself out.

    Well looks like everyone is having teething going on. Hopefully it isn't too disruptive. Dragonbub - it wasn't us with the top teeth. We still only have one through (bottome canine) and I'm really not sure when the twin of it will make an entrance, as its been almost two months now.

    Hoody - so happy that everyone is healthy in your house. I am praying that it continues for you.

    Oh and congrats on those of you that are going out or having nights without your bubs!!

    Twinsis - Have fun with swimming lessons. I have had Jacob in the pool a couple of times and its hilarious. The first time he was very serious and didn't move much but after a couple of goes he goes a little crazy. Splashing everywhere!! Glad you are meeting some people, it really helps to meet up and have conversations with others adults!!

    Hope everyone else is having a good time.

    Oh by the way we have tried pumpkin and sweet potato and they are going down really well. We might try apple tomorrow.

    Hi to all - sorry for being extremely MIA for so long, although I'm sure you all understand why! Thanks so much for your support and very kind thoughts - it means a lot.

    Sorry too for not doing personals - too much to tackle in one go - but sounds like everybody's bubbas are all going great (if we don't count teething!!).

    I think that I (along with Hoody), have the tichy bubba of the group now - Euan was only 6.29kg at his weigh in last week (at 17 weeks/4 months), which was only a gain of 480gm in the last 5 and a half weeks. But he made up for it by growing a lot in length - he is now 67cm! He is the tallest of all the bubbas in our mum's group, and one of the lightest! I'm not worried - he is for the most part happy and content, and seems to be developing as he should, his dad is tall and skinny, so it's not like there's no explanation for it. The doctor wasn't worried either, even though he dropped a couple of percentiles, he just said that they'd keep an eye on his weight when they weigh him at the next immunisation in two months.

    We are slowly but surely getting teeth - nothing has come through yet but we've had grizzling, chewing and bucketloads of drool. And we have had the occasional night with him up three or more times - gee they hit hard! Not used to getting up in the night anymore! The way they are going they will take months to come through - he's been doing this for a month or so now! And he is almost rolling over, he gets onto his side but just can't quite make it all the way over. He wriggles all over the mat doing 360 degree turns - I turn for a minute and he is pointing in the opposite direction. He's laughing lots and has started to squeal, and is getting very good with his hand/eye co-ordination, (he can poke his hand in his eye extremely well LOL!!), he will roll onto his side to reach and grab things if I put them next to him and is getting quite good dexterity (well, I think so anyway, and I'm not biased at all!!!)

    Euan not only coped with four plane flights in less than two weeks, but did brilliantly. The first one I was a bit worried about, figured that I would have screaming baby the entire flight, as his teeth were giving him grief and I was travelling alone, but he was great. Cheeky though, kept smiling at all of the flight attendants, they loved him. Little flirt! No mile high club for you yet sonny boy!!

    Hope all is well, will try to do personals next time but just wanted to check in and let everyone know how we are doing. Things are not too good with my dad - they are going to try chemo to see if they can give him a bit of time, but it is looking like they may not even get to do that, he might be too weak to handle the chemo. All we can do is hope I guess.

    Suse- so glad to hear you are doing as well as can be expected i have been thinking of you lots. It sounds like Molly and Euan are pretty much at the same stage etc not quite rolling but trying etc. I'm in no hurry BTDT and once they are more mobile its more work

    Twinsis- Ohhh swimming how exciting i loved taking DD1 but i dont think i can this time its too hard with 2 DD1 would be trying to get in the pool to SO glad to hear you arent as lonely now and getting some much needed adult company.

    June- You sound like you had a lovely day out- i'm envious

    Well i had Molly weighed yesterday and my little feather weight is up to 5.6kg so lighter than i thought but i'm not complaining we are getting lots of wear out of our 000 clothing Molly had a very rough day today but i dont know why and my new theory is she's only human after all so she's allowed to get grumpy too and we all have our bad days. DD1 has been a grumble bum too so i've had my hands full but now they are both fed, bathed and fast asleep they are been angels I am a bit sore though i think i have broken my toe i was vacuuming and the bed jumped out and got me, i swear i didnt kick it. I'm not going to go to Dr's there is nothing they can do (i've broken toes b4) i am just hobbling around looking like a goose with a big fat purple toe I have strapped it to the one nexted to it and will see how i go tomo. Should be interesting i'm babysitting for a friend so i will have a 3 and 1/2 yo, a 2yo and Molly- i must be mad. Well take care everyone.

    June - ha ha that's hilarious about Jacob squealing in the gallery. Cameron too has discovered he can squeal and when he gets excited it can be pretty ear piercing.

    Suse - we're in the same teething boat as you. He's been working on them for awhile now but so far none have broken through yet.

    Hoody - Congrats on the weigh in. I'm sure you're sick to death of people telling you how tiny Molly is but 000 clothing WOW!!! My husband and I are both 6" tall so our newborn clothes didn't last long and Cameron was into 6 month sleepers by the time he was 2 months old. I'm sick to death of people telling me how big he is LOL.

    We took Cameron to the pool last night and it was so much fun. Cameron looked so adorable in his little swimsuit with his little chubby belly! He wasn't too sure at first what was going on but I think he enjoyed himself. I know DH and I sure did. I can't wait to take him again

    Cameron just mastered rolling over too. Up until now he would only roll over after a lot of fussing and it would happen almost by accident, but Tuesday he just all of a sudden figured it out and now as soon as I put him on his belly he rolls himself over and looks up at me all proud of himself. Sooo cute!

    OMG, OMG - he rolled over - when neither DP or I were looking! Sneaky little bugger!

    I popped him down on his back on the mat for a minute, and when I walked past again a minute later he was on his front. I just figured that DP had rolled him over, (he was on the computer, but was right next to Euan), and DP thought that I'd put him down on his tummy, and it wasn't until a few minutes later that we clicked that he'd rolled from his back to his front.

    Now all we've got to do is get him to repeat the trick when we're watching.

    Hello All!
    June - I have done that a few times, written a big note with lots of personals, then gone back later to check where my last entrance was, and it wasn't there. V frustrating What a good little man at the exhibition. LOL about the people looking, but you get that don't you? We have tried sweet potato, baby cereal, apple, avocado, and banana, as well as a little tongue taste of some melon. He LOVES it and finishes the whole lot most days. I am not sure what he likes more, the food, him grabbing my hand and feeding himself, or chewing on the spoon afterwards! Oh, he is also partial to sticking his apple/banana/avocado flavoured thumb in his mouth and sucking on that too...

    Suse - LOL about the little flirt! Great that he did so well on the plane, that must have been a relief on top of everything. I hope the chemo works, or at least he gets the chance to give it a try. My uncle passed away just at the end of last year and he was having radiation, not chemo. He pretty much decided enough was enough and that he wanted his life to end under his terms. Again, it is no consolation, but my thoughts and wishes are with you and your family.

    Hoody - woohoo on the "better bub". It is so great when they are settled and happy (but mainly healthy). Sounds like she is putting on weight nicely now, which is really wonderful.

    Twinsister - I agree, I am sick of people telling me how big Caden is. I mean, they don't even know how old he is and they say "wow, what a big baby!". I mean, what if I told them he was a year old? Would they think he was big then? It is funny how sensitive you can be to people's comments. One lady the other day commented on Caden sucking his thumb, she said "oh, that's cute, but you can throw a dummy away you know, you'll be stuck with the thumb forever". I mean, excuse me! Did I ask for her opinion? Caden wants to suck his thumb, he sucks his thumb!

    AS for us, we get some roll overs, but mainly when he is on his tummy to go back onto his back. He still is not too fond of tummy time, but still seems to be building up his strength. Caden can sit for a bit by himself now, with me acting as support. He likes sitting up and is always straining at his car seat belt, and the pram harness to sit up more. It is like he does mini-situps. Cute! It is just that he is not yet strong and stable enough to do it on his own, so he has to be frustrated a little while longer I think. Everything is going pretty well here. LOVE the cloth nappies, will get some more soon. Have had a couple of hours of work doing some arty stuff, so have earned a few extra $. And that is all really!

    Have a great week everyone ;D

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry it has been a while.. I did a full week at work last week and it sucked. Kimmy was at Mum & Dad's for 2 nights and we missed her like crazy Don't think I will do another full week.. Won't do personals as it seems forever since I posted.

    Hoody/Suse - I have a small bub here too.. 5.2kgs at her 4 month injections.. 000 still fit her nicely, but in the occasional 00 for nighttime comfort (she is very long). I am so used to the strange looks and comments when people learn her age, but as our little ones are all healthy, size doesn't really matter. We have a huge mop of hair that always attracts attention on the 1st place, and daycare are now putting it in pigtails (so cute).

    Kimberley is now on the move.. Not crawling, but rolling her way around the loungeroom. So in the process of making sure that there is nothing to harm her.. So far she turns back when she gets the tiles cause they are a bit cold. Had her on a mattress about an inch think at my parents house (They are in the process of getting carpet down) and she kept rolling off that.. Don't think it was enough space to keep her amused. So unfortutately I no longer have the luxery of putting her down on the floor, and her still being in the same spot, while I do things. I am hoping that all the moving will make her tired enough to sleep through the day

    Well have better get moving and get dinner on.. Hope all are going well...

    Hello All,
    Heather - wow your lil gal sure is a mover! Caden is yet to really move around. He likes his back more, so if I put him on his tummy now he just rolls over. I think he has realised that he can cover a certain distance this way tho, so hopefully he will do the rolling soon.

    Just a whinge - my GF said that Caden was an "awful" baby today I was quite upset and had a bit of a cry about it. I mean, he is unsettled sometimes, but take today for instance, he fell asleep in the car going to a pal's house, had fun there and didn't whinge, then fell asleep coming home, and now is in bed sleeping. I mean, I think he is pretty good? He sleeps through the night and goes to sleep on his own so I dont' have to rock him. I think it is maybe because every time she calls he is crying, or if I take him to visit her. But it is normally evening when I visit and he has his grumpy hour between 5-6 o'clock. Is this normal? Is my baby awful, or simply just a normal (if slightly more of a handful) bubba?

    No more griping, off to get dinner on.

    Have a great week everyone!

    Dragonbub - just a quickie because I'm in the middle of cooking dinner - I'd tell your friend to shove it up her bum!! What a thing to say. I'd convince him to projectile vomit all over her face next time you see her, that would show her awful. (BTW, Caden sounds like a completely normal bub to me).

    Dragonbub,

    I agree with Suse, tell your girlfriend to shove her comments like that.. Does she have kids?? Anyhow, the things you mention sound perfectly normal. If we are out at someones house about 6.30 - 7.00 at night, Kimberley will start screaming till she gets a long jumpsuit and a sleeping bag on. She will even reject the bottle unitl she has her night comforts on (and although I don't hear screams often from her, she can put on a show when she wants to)

    So don't stress, Caden sounds like a typical baby to me! If she thinks like that, it is possible he is sensing some negativity and gets worked up when she is around.

    Anyhow off to have dinner in peace as it looks like Kimberley has finally gone to sleep and DH is at work.

    Just a quickie its getting late and i'm knackered hopefully i will be able to post properly tomo

    Dragonbub- What a dreadful thing for your friend to say. I hope you told her how her comment upset you and if you didnt then you should. It sounds to me like your lil man is perfect (well as perfect as any baby can be )

    A big woo hoo Molly actually slept from 6.30pm til 7.30am last night instead of our normal 10-5 or 6. I had a mini panic attack when i woke and realised it had been so long and thought the worst but no my angel was just sleeping. Not holding my breath for it to happen again tonight though but i can hope. Might be getting a puppy tomo but will see how she interacts with DD1. Friends need to get rid of her and she is only 17wks old and i am a sucker for pups. Had a bit of a giggle though she will fit right in her name is Maggie so along with Molly and DD1 (Mia) i will have a house full of m&m's. Just imaging Mia, Molly and Maggie

    Dragonbub - your friend is an eejit. If Caden is "awful", L must be "atrocious"!! He does NOT sleep through the night, is PRETTY good during the day and self settles MOST of the time but he's no champion sleeper by any stretch and the days of him playing on the floor content and happy for the whole of his awake times are OVER! (I'm blaming teeth )

    Still, I think for a 5 month old baby he's totally normal! Tell your friend to get a life...

    Hoody -

    Just imaging Mia, Molly and Maggie
    Nothing shabby about m&ms!!
