    HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTIE!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Not much has been happening around here, my mums surgery went better than they expected which is great but now I have her and tori to get dressed in the mornings my days are getting slower at the moment.
    Tori has broken her first tooth though, just the tip of it but its a start.

    Nikki - I still havent heard from Bettina which is a touch unprofessional IMO but Dp is going to give them a call today and see what the story is. I dont mind if she isnt accepted I would just like to know! I am goign to give it a miss untill she gets through the teething stage if she doesnt get into bettina,

    gotta go, she just fell and bumped her head on the stairs which she is trying to climb!



    Speak soon

    Nikki - We just heard from bettina and they want tori on the books and aparently have clients already keen to meed her for an ad of some sort just from the interview we had. They have organised our photos to be done this thursday at 1.50pm when are you having your boys ones done?
    I just went our and spent to much money on way to many clothes for the photos too, but she is getting to long for the 00's anyway. I just need to find some shoes now, wnybody got an idea for me as to where to look for shoes that dont lace up? THey are to hard to get on her wiggling feet, she had little converse boots but they are just way way way to hard to get on most days. If only she would stay still for a second.

    I am going to get going again, time for a nap I'm thinking, she has just gone down for her first sleep for the day and I am worn out! I cant believe she went from 9am to 4pm!

    Hi everyone

    I am sorry to hear that most of the bubs have colds. I hope that they all get over it soon and back into a nice sleep pattern.

    Happy birthday Kirstie. I hope you had a nice day, even if people didnt remember straight away.

    Cindy - Yeah on Tori being accepted into the agency. I hope she does get some good work out of it. You never know she maybe the next neighbours star!!!!! Then I can say I knew her when she wasnt even born.......

    Nicole - Darling. I hope you get a good night sleep tonight. Hopefully we can cheer you up tomorrow if you are still up for it. Let me know if you want to cancel. I can understand you may not be up to it if you have little to no sleep. Nadine is in the same boat at the moment so maybe you too could assist with ideas......
    Good luck with the boys photo shoots. I am sure they will look gorgeous.
    (no blue ice cream for James before the photo shoot though )

    Well not much to report here. Jordan is doing well. I am still struggling to fill a bottle of EBM. Jordan had a bottle of 180 ml today when I was at work and although MIL thought he could have had more he wasnt unhappy so I guess thats the main thing. I try to get atleast 200 ml. I got 190 ml tonight so will try and express tomorrow at some point to top it up.

    Have a great night everyone. Sleep vibes to all.

    Nikki - I am not platinum member yet, keep meaning to do it but my mobile number isnt anything to hide so it is 0410495570. We must be right after your boys so we will definately be seeing you then! We were given 1pm at first but changed it cos I haveto pick my niece up from kinder at 12.30 so wouldnt have time to get there. I will be meeting another person from bely belly it looks like. How exciting! We will be getting there a bit early anyway so we can give my niece some lunch so she doesnt go crazy waiting during the pics. I'm hoping she will be happy during it with the focus not being on her, she is a character! She should be very helpful in getting tori to smile though, she just walks in the room at the moment and tori starts laughing, very cute!

    Looking forward to meeting you and your boys, will you have your princess with you?

    Gotta get going, time for a shower, what a luxury these days!

    I hope you had a great birthday Kristie

    Kristie, Wishing you belatedly a very happy birthday. Hope you were spoilt by the boys!

    Cindy and Nikki, Congratulations on your children being accepted by Bettina. That's wonderful news. My cousin has two daughters (now 9 and 11) who have been modelling and acting successfully for quite a few years. They save most of their earnings and now have more stashed away than people four times their age! They are both now at performing arts schools and are planning careers in the acting industry. And to think it all started when they were pretty little babies. he ha!

    Sorry to hear so many babies are sick with colds at the moment. Let's hope that this is their main big cold of the season and that their little immune systems are being made extra strong as part of the process of being sick. Hope you guys get some really restful sleep soon. Must be hard going!

    Tracey, You are doing so well continuing to express. It must be tough with such a hungry bub trying to keep up with it all. Just a thought...have you tried any of the milk boosting things I posted about a while ago? I'm currently taking Motillium - as Gussy's extreme screaming week caused my supply to plummet. I started on the Motillium yesterday and already my expressed volumes have almost doubled!

    Went to see Gussy's allergy immunologist on Monday. Due to his allergies we can only feed him rice cereal and pear as solids at this stage (in conjunction with breast milk). All the extreme crying over the past couple of weeks has been an allergic reaction. I'm still on the diet to make my milk free from allergens (ie I can't eat dairy, eggs, wheat, seafood, nuts or soy), so the problem has been the solids I've been offering him. Now that Gussy's 7 months (corrected age) he's apparently not receiving enough nutrients from such a limited diet so we have to introduce one bottle of formula a day. However, because of Gussy's allergies we can't use any of the regular formulas and have to give him one called Neocate. We can only get it on via an authority prescription. It's an elemental formula made from amino acids and is not derived from the milk of cows, goats or soy so shouldn't trigger any allergies. Hopefully this might help him to pack on some weight! We start hydrotherapy next week in a group of "failure to thrive babies" - terrible phrase isn't it. It's designed to help strengthen their muscles. Apparently there's an ex-premmie there who's two and only 7kg. Gosh I hope that won't be our fate!

    Hope all is going well with you guys.

    Kirsty I havent tried any tablets but was thinking of buying some fenugrek. I will let you know how that goes.
    You are doing such a terrific job with Gus. You are such a great mum to be sticking to a strict diet so that you dont upset bubs. I had a spicy pizza the other day knowing it may upset him.......I have no self control.
    I hope that your hydrotherapy assists with Gus's muscle strengthening. I am sure he will thrive, he has been so far.
    I cant wait to see some photos of him.

    Cindy and Nicole - Hope that your photo shoots go well tomorrow. I am sure the kids will do a great job. Cant wait to see them in ads and catalogues.

    Linda - I had a look at your updated photos. Emma is such a darling. You are really a talented photographer. How long have you been doing it for?

    Well today i have cleaned the house in prep for playgroup although looks asthough its only Nicole and myself as everyone else is sick or bubs is. Will be nice and cosy. No flooding of the house this week though.......

    I have made the final changes to my 1st plate and will now bake it and send it to my 1st client. HOW EXCITING. I have already had expressions of interest from other people of "wedding central" ( i am a member there aswell ) I hope that this little business venture takes off.

    Puppy is well. she went back to vet today $60 later and they want her back again on the weekend????? not sure if i will take her. Will see what DH says. I might only go back if she is down in the dumps, she seems back to her normal self.

    Have a great day everyone

    Happy Belated Birthday Kristie!

    Cindy - Congrats on getting a call back for Tori already. Tori must be a stunner...

    We had our first colds of the season a few weeks ago. Benjamin had to go onto antibiotics. It's all good here now. The only thing is the cold weather that's sneaking on in all of a sudden. It was 4 degrees at 6:30am this morning here.

    Benjamin has cut his second tooth. He now has the 2 middle bottom ones. I feel every bit of it when I bf him, which hurts. He crawls around happily now chasing his mummy, and if he finds something he wants he sits himself up and plays with it. He pulls himself up onto things too.

    I hope everyone is feeling as good as can be expected and that those of us with a cold I hope get better soon.

    Melissa

    what are the fees for Bettina modelling agency? I am thinking of getting both Kat and Jess into it if they will accept them (have been thinking it since Kat was born but have decided there is nothing stopping us now...) I know I should post pics of my girls, but DH has scanned the pics and they are toooo big and I have NFI how to scale them down a bit so they are a good size to view easily...

    Hey Linda - She has had cast/brace for 6 months and sh now still has to wear the cast overnight but can have it off all day, and go to preschool with it off for the first time!! She can walk and do most things without it, she was already having it off a few hours a day so had been walking etc and now that will just keep getting better. She does get a bit tired and sore if she does a lot of walking etc, but that will get better too

    HAPPY BDAY KRISTIE! Hope you had a nice day, and hope Louis is feeling better for you.

    Kirstie - Fingers crossed that Gussy takes the formula and starts packing on that weight

    Hope all the sick bubs are feeling better,its that time of year isnt it? Molly has a touch of something and the trick is keeping her away from Will so he doesnt get it, she just loves to kiss and play with him all day

    wow Kell! Congratulations, that is fabulous news. It must be so exciting for Molly and you all. I hope it's not to long before Molly doesn't need to wear it overnight!

    Kirsty - Thanks She has to for at least 6 months, then another xray and visit to the specialist (I spose you're an expert in specialist already ). the poor thing hates sleeping on her back all the time and gets uncomfy, but it could be so much worse...

    the boys had there photo shoot today and did really well,the photographer was a grumpy barstard and spent the morning growling at all the kids,he definantly did not belong in an industry with children,he did a great job with the photos though,we got to see them straight away on the computer and i was very impressed,we have done our part now and i guess the rest is up to the agency,i hope they get work even if it is just enough to cover the $790 outlay and they get to have this new and exciting experience.
    chantelle has been a little ****.i am not enjoyying her at all at the moment,she really is playing up,i can tell by the way she fake cries,she wants me to carry her all the time and has just learnt to protest about going to bed.she was always so good at going down to sleep,we never had an issue with that.tonight she screamed and fought for 1.5 hours until she was exhausted.i spent all that time sitting on the floor next to her cot patting her.not happy jan.think i might stay up again tonight,last night was hell.
    sorry to sound so depressing,just a bad week,i do hope it does sought itself out soon

    Hi!

    Well what a week! Thank you for all your b'day wishes! Louis slept well before my b'day but hasn't since. Last night I even had to bring him into the bed with me and of course he fell asleep straight away for 3 hours! I fed him at 5am and put him back in his cot and he slept for another 3 1/2 hours! My birthday was pretty good - nothing very exciting. I'm a bit down in the dumps this week. Not for any good reason and I'm sure I will snap out of it. I think sometimes around b'day time you just assess life a bit and everything with mine is great except the finances....which of course impacts on every other aspect. We'll be fine though - I should buy a tatts ticket on the weekend though I think! hehe.

    Cindy - Glad your mums op went well. Yeah on Tori's teeth. So far I've just bought a little pair of shoes from target for Louis and their just velcro...

    Tracey - Ooh I hope you sell lots and lots of plates!

    Thanks Linda - How's Emma going?

    Melissa - Wow on Benjamin following you around everywhere. I can't imagine that. Louis is getting closer to crawling each day. He now can get himself into crawling position and can walk forward on his hands a little bit, but he either collapses back onto the floor or tries to walk on his feet! I'm sure he'll get there eventually. (I don't know why I'm so eager - I'm sure as soon as starts moving around I'll wish he wasn't - hehe)

    Kell - Yeah on getting Mollys braces off! Thats great news!

    Nikki - Sorry to hear Chantelle is so sick. I hope she's feeling better.
    Wow on the cost of the photos! Maybe I won't try Louis out - I definitely couldn't afford that at the moment! I'm so sorry to hear your having so much trouble with Chantelle. I know how frustrating it can be ( I was like that last night at 2am when Louis wouldn't settle - thats why I just brought him into bed with me...) It's especially hard when you haven't had a good night for so long and then it just keeps getting worse and worse. I hope for all our sakes that our bubs start sleeping better soon. It's so draining. I wish I could afford a night time nanny - hehehe. I so would if I was rich! hehe. I can't even imagine how you do it with your boys to look after as well!!

    Kirsty - Good to hear from you. Wow, you are doing so well following such a strict diet. I'm hopeless with the foods I eat. I'm vegetarian so I would struggle cutting all those things out of my diet. You are such an amazing Mum! I hope Gussy takes to his formula and food and keeps growing nice and big for you!

    Chat soon!
