    Hi!

    Hehe Kirsty - You couldn't all get rid of me if you tried! hehehe. You're certainly a supermum! It must be so hard having to do all those extras on your own, especially with dh working all those hours! Sorry to hear that Gus has been so unwell. You must be glad he's home again with you though!

    Linda - You're so good not finding out the sex!! I'm such a spoil sport! hehe.

    Oh Kirsty - sounds like it is still really hard for Gus. You are doing such an amazing job as his Mum, you should be proud - but I guess you don't get much time to step back from it all & feel proud do you? He sounds like he is doing really well though, taking steps!! And his words - that's probably more than Em. She isn't a big talker either, often playing without any noise most of the time. It sounds like the pump is doing a great job. Is is just because he doesn't like the sensation of food in his tummy that he won't eat himself? Poor little fella. I bet he hates the hospitals too. You are amazing!! Oh - I'd love to be belly buddies too But it sounds like you have your hands full enough right now..

    Kristie - yeah, but if DH was keen, I'd find out for sure! It is tempting...

    Thanks guys. Linda we don't really know why he doesn't like to eat or drink his milk. The specialists think he is still intolerant to a whole range of foods and that he associates the pain from food intolerances and also gastric reflux with all forms of eating/drinking so that he can't get any pleasure from food. Tis very very frustrating. Looks like we'll be feeding via the NGT for at least the next 6 months. While it's absolutely necessary at the moment, it also means that his eating skills are falling further and further behind. By feeding him so much liquid food his poor little body doesn't really get a chance to feel hunger so in turn he rejects each oral feed we offer him. Tis a vicious cycle. Not to mention terribly hard work. I have had to get used to extremely broken sleep once more. I have to get up to Gus every couple of hours and sometimes every half hour or so. The feeding pump Gus is connected to overnight alarms lots through the night each time he gets a "kink" in the tube or a blockage. This requires my attention to fix, in addition to this, his tube needs flushing regularly, the formula needs refreshing every couple of hours to stop it spoiling in the heat, Gus regularly gets tangled in his feeding tube as he rolls about the cot etc. Aaaghhhhh so that's why i'm turning into a crazy sleep deprived woman. heha!

    well i got overmy issues with Dh and we had a great night tonight. DH had all our dinner cooked when I got home and he had a massive play with Jordan before he went to bed so I am a happy camper. It makes such a difference. Both DH and I have gone on health kicks now we both want to loose some weight so I hope we can stick to it. DH had salad and chicken satay skewers for tea and I had chicken cachiatore. I also made my lunch for work, ham and salad roll, no more KFC. A new year means a new way of eating. I want to be able to provide Jordan with a good start to life so guess we need to quit the junk so he doesnt pick up our bad habits.

    Kirstie you are such a trooper, you are coping with everything so well and I am glad to see that the tube is working for Gus. Our friends little girl has a feeding tube at the moment, she is only 5 months. She has some issues with formula and is on some special percription stuff. I am sure you will able to say goodbye to the hospital visits soon enough. Take care.
    Nikki WOW superwomen, you are certainly keeping busy before Friday. Are you going to bacchus marsh hospital? I would love to come visit you in hospital if you are up for visitors and dont have too many people coming in. Let me know.
    Kristie YEAH i agree with your posts, you keep me entertained. WOW on Louis's sleep that was awesome. I wish he would send some sleeping vibes to Jordan. I think an 8 oclock sleep in is marvellous.
    Linda Gee those 9 weeks have gone fast. Hope the MS goes away soon
    Katkins nice to hear from you hope the girls are well.
    Melissa I hope that Benjamin didnt mess up the house too much I find nothing looks tidy anymore as we have toys everywhere.
    Welcome Monabap, when was your Oct bub born?
    Cindy hope you are well and cant wait to catch up with you again and see how your belly is growing.
    Hope I didnt miss anyone......

    Hi!

    Kirsty - Are you getting help from anyone other than dh? You poor thing with getting such broken sleep! I wish you were nearby so I could help you out!

    Tracey - So glad you had a good night tonight! Every now and then it all just gets too much!! Good for you for going on a health kick - I think I'll have to do that when Dylan arrives! I'm stacking on the weight this time around - I think I've put on around 7kg already!!!!! (I swear it's mostly lard!)

    I was wrecked this afternoon after doing some housework and cooking Louis and I roast for dinner (well a veggie version - roast potato, pumpkin and onion with honey carrots, beans, peas and cauliflower with cheese sauce!) Needless to say we both pigged out though! Louis ate a whole plate full of food! Ooh and I also made a date loaf this arvo - Hmmm - I wonder why I've put on 7kg already?? hehehe. Louis did some fabulous finger painting artwork while I was getting dinner ready which is now up on our fridge! hehe. He also had a scribble with his crayons and textas and managed to actually draw a line and some dots! I haven't spent much time with him with art - I don't think he's hugely interested yet but a dabble here and there won't hurt! (except when he puts his fingers in his mouth when finger painting! hehe)

    Anyway - going to chill out.

    Thank you for the welcomes.. it is interesting reading about everyone's toddlers. Kirsty - you sure do sound sleep deprived!!
    My son is Patrick, he was actually due mid November but came a month early when my waters broke.
    These days he's toddling around everywhere, (falls down a lot too), tries to climb everything, gets into everything, eats everything, etc. He is growing like a weed. Every now and then he will talk and say something totally understandable which is pretty funny.
    Here he is in December.
