    Nic - that ordeal at the park sounds like hard work! I'm finding it hard looking after 1 bub, so all of you mums are out there with more than 1 are doing a great job!

    Tahlia has been feeding heaps today, I'm starting to feel like a milk cow... maybe cause its hot, she is extra thirsty? who knows?

    L doesn't look at me when feeding either, hmmmmmmm

    L been unsettled and spewing all day........ not sure why, might be the heat! Hope tomorrow is better!

    Nothing to be done for coccyx, just time. Man it hurts though!

    Cath- i dont feed to sleep intentionally, but sometimes she is out for the count and i she wont wake even if i change her or undress her!

    ETA- About the bladder thing Cath, it is not something that happens to everyone, guess i'm just lucky!

    Aah Kim i'm so sorry to hear about your family dog - its such a sad thing to have to go through and I swear that sort of thing only gets harder as you get older!

    Nic - sounds like your day at the park was a bit rough, its good that the other mothers there helped you out, that gives me a bit of reassurance that if I get into strife in public with Hayley that some nice other mother might pity me and offer some help.
    I often feel like such a clutz when I'm out and about with her, especially when i'm getting her in and out of her carseat - she has been patient with me so far thankfully!

    I must have missed the posts on the Sydney catch up - can anyone fill me in with more details? Parramatta on Monday??

    also I've put some photos on totsites website: [url="http://www.totsites.com/tot/payten"]Hayley Claire Payten[/url]

    gotta love free websites like that!

    i have to let Claire know but dont tink i can make this one now. i forgot its my sisters birthday and had told her we'd go out for lunch so wouldnt be back in time, then in the evening i am out again s think after my park ordeal thismorning one thing a day is enough!

    but not sure ifits going to be a weekly/ fortnightly thing im really looking forward to catching up with you all Ursula, Kate, Claire and anyone else in Sydney.

    yep Ty is having a good slep now but basically fed all day too, think the heat def affects them, i drink more in the heat so makes sence.

    Cath- She's looking into the camera, but not at me! Staring at the ghosts over my shoulder. She does look sometimes, but then looks away, she mostly stares into the distance or eyes closed.

    Hayle is very cute. Watching the cricket already hey?

    Kim- Mo's maddi has that outfit too!

    ETA- you got me thinking Cath, i used to use football hold when had cracked nipple, that is how i had her in that pic. I guess its easier for her to look at me like that. I changed back to the most common hold mainly to cover my new spare tyre when feeding in public! LOL Might start footballing again at home!

    KateP = Hayley looks adorable in your photos, Baby Elmo sure is popular James picked out the other dress style - has shoestring straps - for his first present to his sister. Look forward to you meeting you and Hayley if you come on Monday.

    Sorry you can't make the Monday meet up Nic, look forward to catchinh you and the boys next time. By the way can you email the details all I know is its at the parra park - thanks

    Geez the weather is sucky I hate hot weather makes me and Maddi all sweaty when I hold her which she demands esp at night. Luckily she drinks some water in tthe afternoon cos I'm sure she was feling the heat.....She's also been demand feeding every 3 hours must be growing time.

    Hhhmm... let's see how much I can remember...

    Kim - sorry to hear about your dog.

    Nic - your trip to the park sounds like a big ordeal, hope it get's easier for you!

    Kaylee stares at me when feeding! And we are FF.

    I left Kaylee at with DH for a couple of hours today and wend dress shopping with mum - have brought a dress for my sisters wedding on NYE - the dress fits, but will look nicer if I lose a little and tone-up the lumps and bumps!! So no excuses... must get my butt moving!! Oh, and this arvo we brought a new split system, reverse cycle air cond for our living area - yay!!

    Umm.... can't think of anything else to say.

    DH is out tonight wetting the baby's head with a mate. Mate's wife and DD came over to be with me. Night started so well, we had some nibbles while dinner was cooking (ready made lasagne and garlic bread), DS was being nursed asleep and being best ever baby. When came time to serve dinner, DS decides he wants to cry and cry. Ended up leaving them to eat dinner while I fed him. He wouldn't settle. Close to an hour later they went home. It took another hour to settle and I have just put him down. Nothing goes to plan with a newborn! Hopefully DH won't be too drunk when he comes home.

    This is the first time I have been on my own with him. I'm coping ok and have managed to feed him and put him down (eventually).

    Kellie and Kate - your girls are gorgeous.

    Nic - bet you needed a lie down after your trip to the park. Friends with more than 1 kid tell me they get better with age. Just wait until they can play together and not need you to entertain them.

    Managed to do the grocery shopping today. L behaved himself very well, grizzled a bit, but a trip to the parents room soon sorted him out.

    Nothing much else happening.

    Ange... Go the football hold! Another thing I was thinking when I was feeding her this morning was, I LOVE how her top hand/arm rests on breast and she opens and closes her little hand on my boob. Aww... gives me the hebbey jebbeys!

    Saffi - Sorry you evening didn't work out as you planned... Did Lochie have wind? I know how you feel with being by yourself, I was petrified when Daniel first went back to work and being by myself for 4 or 5 days and nights - but now I love it! I get Rochelle all to myself without Daniel being a hog... and I have been naughty and let Rochelle sleep in my bed a couple of times after a feed since his been gone - which probably wouldn't happen if Dan was home.

    I think I tricked myself into making more milk again... last night the ol' gals were so full that the pressure in them was so great that I wasn't just leaking everywhere I was full on spurting! That has happen to me a few times, but my normal let down isn't usually spurting like that.... Rochelle was being squirted in the eyes, up the nose... even managed to get some in her hair i noticed. Hopefully today is as eventful!

    I'm going to set up our christmas tree today! Greetings to all... hope you all have had lots of sleep and have a great day!

    Catherine- when i read about your love of bf i as thinking what i love about it, and yeah what you just wrote abut how bub puts their hand n your breast and moves there hand on it, did you know that actually stimulates the breast and helps your let down etc?

    I know what you guys were saying about milk seeming to dwindle away, the last 3 feeds my boobs havent fet real full and Tyron has been very difficult to feed squirming kicking and carrying on. There is milk in them i know that but obviously not as much as what there has been. but i did have stressful day yesterday which doesnt help and prob didnt drink enough, will try and make up for it today.
    Ursula & Kate i text you he text from Clairere: Monday's meet up.

    what website are we talking about?
