    Congratulations again Kristie, yay for Dylan being born on his due date

    Milo still has a bit of a cold, but it doesn't seem to be bthering him too much. Ha ha Tracey, hes he did the hokey pokey today, it was soooooo cute.

    We got him some new shoes today, he is a size 5 now. I thought he'd be a 4.5, but noooo he is a 5 already! I can' believe it.

    Would love to catch up, the days i have off are a monday and tuesday (7-8), so I think Tuesday is best for most people?



    I spent Friday afternoon on the phone getting quotes to have our ducted heating unit replaced, as it died last year, and it sems to be getting pretty cold, pretty fast this year.

    Hope fully will have something organised in the next couple of weeks.

    Nikki, I hope Chantelle is feeling better

    Hi to Dani, Missy, Tiggy, linda, Kirsty and anyone I have missed

    Kristie - Congrats on the arrival of Dylan! I don't get on here for a couple of days and babies happen...

    Nikki - Benjamin had a fever after his 18mo injection too. I hope the fever has broken. No mum likes unwell grumpy bubs.

    I hope all is well with everyone else?

    hi melissa,have been thinking of you,any word from your results yet,must be so difficult having that unkown feeling hanging above your head,i have everything crossed that all your results come back good and that you will be ttc very very soon.
    chantelle is still unwell,still has a temp and still very sad and unwell.poor gugger,harry is just great he is such a good baby,i am really counting my blessings with him,he still has his cough though.
    i am feeling down today,me and dh have been screaming at each other since yesterday,i am jack of my life.tis sooo hard and i feel so trapped in a life i didnt want and didnt ask for.i have a masive chip on my shoulder and feel so sorry for myself and i dont even care.evryone can go to hell.my kids give me the ****s especially the older boys,they are so selfish and corey is so naughty and doesnt care that it is running me into the ground,he thinks it is funny,but i dont,i never wanted to spend my time as a mother abusing my kids everytime they open there mouth.i just want to sleep.then i dont have to face it any more.i didnt want to have another baby and grant gave me no choice and all i want to do is make him pay like he is making me pay.i told him if i had to go ahaed with having a 4th child he would lose his wife and the kids would lose a sensitive patient,loving mother and that is exactly what has happened,i told him and now he has to live with the decision he made and the position he has put me in.blah blah blah.i really suck!!!!!!!

    Nikki darling. I had no idea you felt this badly. BIG HUGS TO YOU. Please if you need time out come over and we can have a coke/coffee and a talk. I am here most nights. I will come see you tuesday morning if you like, maybe some time out do you a world of good. I have to say though, you are far from being an awful mum so beleive that. We all do the best we can with what we have and your kids are all lovely, testament to you. In no way do you suck and if anything I really admire the way you handle all 4 kids. Gees, I have trouble with my 1 child sometimes.
    Melissa How are things with your mum? Has she apologised to you? What is Benjamin up to?
    Rachel YEAH on the hokey pokey I cant wait to see it. Jordan now does the monkey dance (wiggles) with his arms, very cute.
    Krisite I hope you are settling well into motherhood of 2. Hope Dylan is a good sleeper.
    Cindy Hope you are having a nice weekend
    Linda Hi, I really miss hearing all your stories. Come back!

    This morning DH got up at 5 to pick up our friends from the airport, they have been in Europe for the last 4 weeks (lucky them). He is now asleep on the bed as he was knackered as didnt get home last night till 1am, he was at a mates playing wii (computer game thing). I have just put Jordan down for a sleep he has been a little sooky this morning. I have been trying to keep him enterained by bringing out toys he hasnt played with for a while.
    I have been looking at houses in Bacchus Marsh. I would so like to live more country. I found the BEST house with the nicest backyard but so out of our price range. Oh well we can dream.
    Hope you are having a nice weekend everyone XX

    Hi!

    We've just got home an hour or so ago! Michael is asleep on the couch, Louis is having a nap and my mum has Dylan asleep on the couch...and I'm on the computer!! hehe. I know I should be sleeping too but I'm just happy to be chilling out at home iywkim?

    Feeling quite good - Dylan kept me up a lot of the night just wanting to feed and feed. I ended up co sleeping with him as it was the only way to get some sleep! Whatever works! I'm still waiting for my milk to come in so hopefully he'll be a little more satisfied. He is so gorgeous - more like Michael I think! He has a really cute dimple in his cheek like his daddy as well.

    How funny is it that I when I got to the hospital at like 6.30pm or something I was already 6cm dialated -woohoo! So thankfully all the hard work at home really paid off! It all progressed really quickly when I got there and then my waters broke at 9.25 and I had him at 9.39! Couldn't beat your 1min record though Cindy! hehehe. Mind you - that was quick enough for me! It really was great to be drug free as I knew what stage I was in and it was all really obvious...after being induced with Louis I'm just really proud that my body could do it all on it's on this time iykwim?? I was really nervous about it all...

    Anyway...

    Sorry for no personals other than to say big big hugs to you Nikki! You've been under such a tremendous amount of stress and pressure at the moment with the move and painting and looking after a toddler, newborn - 2 big boys and a husband...I really don't think you should be too hard on yourself as I think you really do need some rest. I think you've just go way to much on your plate and somethings got to give...

    I'll try and keep up but who know what life will be like in the next few weeks! hehe. Would love still to catch up with you guys soon though!

    Nikki - Sounds like you need a little time out for R n' R I still haven't got any further news about when the specialists will be seeing me. Everything has gone a little quiet atm.

    Tracey - No apology from mum as of yet, and not likely too either. Mum just doesn't like hospitals, and my sister just stirred her up about the money thing. Benjamin has been screaming everytime I take him to daycare lately. He hangs onto me when I take him there for a good 10 - 15 minutes until one of the ladies takes him off me, and then it could be another 20 minutes after I leave before he settles down. He sometimes has a whinge when we go to pick him up too. Not sure what's going on, but the family think it's a separation thing from me.

    Hi!

    Well, got a bit of sleep last night! Bubba just loves contact though at the moment and won't sleep in his bassinet. At least we all get some sleep if he's in the bed with us. My milks in so he's having big feeds and hasn't needed 3 hours of continuous feeding so thats a help as well!

    Melissa - Poor Benjamin being upset...hopefully it's just a stage and he'll be ok again soon!

    It's funny I've been up since 6.15am but I'm feeling really good - Louis woke up around 6.50am so I've been up with him having brekky and stuff while Michael is asleep with Dylan in bed - nice and peaceful!

    Catch up later!

    Wow Kristie, Great to hear from you. Must be nice to be home from hospital so you can find your own routine. Will DH be able to stay with hom from work with you for a little while? Dylan sounds like a real cutie. Great to hear your milk is in. That will make things a bit easier for you. Is there any chance you could add a picture of him to your website or even email/txt me a picture please?

    Melissa, Sorry to hear your mum hasn't apologised so far. Hopefully things will sort themselves out soon for you. I can understand your frustration. Big hugs. Well Benjamin is not alone in his clingyness. Gus has started to get really clingy with me lately to. It's amazing. Where before he'd literally go to anyone now when I go out without him he cries as I'm leaving and then (apparently) spends lots of time talking about me and looking for me. Even when he's with DH. Hopefully that will pass soon. I thought it was because of all the scary things that he gets done to him each week by the various doctors, allied health profs we see. But perhaps it is just a "normal" phase.

    Ohh Nikki, I am so sorry everything is so busy and hard at the moment. You are juggling so many things I am amazed at how well you've been managing. Sometimes we can go and go and go and go and then the straw breaks the proverbial camels back, doesn't it! Wish we BB girls could wisk you away for some R&R for a few days. It's such an unfair fact that mother's needs/wants are often met last in the list of things to be done. Hopefully the enormous pressure you are under right now will pass once you move into your new place and things will get a bit more manageable. Even without four children, moving is enormously stressful. Don't be to hard on yourself, you need time out to catch your breath as well. Our DH's get a break from the kids when they are at work. At the very least they get to travel to work, eat their lunch and enjoy their coffee break(s) alone. I think even with the best of intentions they forget that we don't ever get a complete break from things. Do you think you might be able to take a Saturday or Sunday "off" from the family and do things that make you happy? Perhaps book in for a hair cut, massage, pedicure (or all three!), meet a girlfriend for lunch or breakfast, play a game of tennis, go on a nice long walk or bike ride, or see a movie or something like that?

    Tracey, your house dreams sound great. Living in a more country area would be soooo nice for raising a family. Maybe you'll be lucky and find a great house at the perfect price. Fingers crossed. Jordan's sookiness is still probably all connected to teething. Poor little boy. Hope those toothypegs come through quickly from here on.

    Rachael, Milo sounds so cute doing his hokey pokeys. Hope you've managed to capture it on video! So many things like that are such fleeting phases and I kick myself we haven't got them on vid. Wow Milo sounds like he's growing nicely. Gus's feet have finally grown to be a size 3.5G so we've never had a huge range of shoes to select from. It's really only the Clarks pre-walkers that fit him at this stage. he he. So although he's walking so well he can run and climb etc he's still in pre-walkers, or barefoot most of the time.

    Cindy, hope your gorgeous girls have been good to you over the weekend. It's fantastic to hear Charlotte is feeding and growing so well. She'll be outgrowing her clothes in no time!

    Hi Dani, Missy and Linda and anyone else I have missed.

    We had a nice weekend. Caught up with a few different bunches of friends, spent some time at the park and indoor soft play centre, some gardening and relaxing time with DH. I went shopping on Saturday for some new clothes for me - as I'm chubby at the moment and don't fit into my winter clothes from last year... and instead came back lots of things for Gus. He's much more fun to buy for at the moment. I am annoyed at myself for putting on weight and was kind of finding it uninspiring trying on clothes. I don't want to spend a lot on things in this size cause they won't fit for long - I'll either lose a little weight or be preggers soon (preferably both). he he. The exercise healthy eating has been going pretty well this week, although I haven't managed to break my latte and muffin/banana bread habit completely. I meet up with various mummys and daddy's I'm friends with during the week as I do the rounds of the docs with Gus. he he. Will have to start having tea and fruit instead. I'm off to the Obstetrician today for my first appointment since the d&c. Am keen to hear what he thinks of things. Then following that we've got Fergus's 18mth (corrected age) skills check with the premmie baby team. Just wanting to see whether he's doing all he "should be" and by association that I'm doing all I "should" be. he he. Anyhow better dash. Our appointments start at 9.30am. Hope everyone had a great w/end.

    hi guys,thanks for listeneing and being there they way you are,i am feeling a bit better today,i am just finding it so hard at the moment cos i am literally a single mummy,grant isnt here much at the moment cos he is working on the house every night/weekend so it is just a struggle and so very frustrating when i am constantly breaking up fights with the boys and cleaning up afetr all of them.the boys are so demanding and ungratful and treat me like **** when things arnt always going there own way.i try so hard to please them all and it is just taking its toll on me.i took them to an indoor play centre yesterday and it was good to get away from the house and squabbling and all the work that comes with it.grant has been great really and i have been such a cow to him,he is working so hard and is exhausted and all i do is remind him all the time what a crap life i have and it is all his fault.he tells me to stop dwelling on it and move on,to try and make the most of the situation i am in,but it is so hard when the situation i am in is not one i like.
    i know that when we move things will be much better cos he wont be missing as much and i know the kids and i will be far happier in the new house.we are falling behind on the renovations and it is really stressing us out.not sure we will make the move this weekend,we will see how the week goes.
    kristie,so good to hear from you.is michael staying home for a while.cuddles in bed is great.harry sometimes sleeps better with me.chantelle was so unwell over the weekend,she slept with me fri,sat and sun night.she is much better today.
    tracey bachus marsh is beautiful,are you guys seriously considering selling up and moving
    kirsty,your words always lift me,you just seem like the most lovely lady,i know if i met you in person i would adore you im sure.
    melissa,chantelle used to have seperation anxiety at day care,she has grown out of it now,it would be so much easier if they could talk cos then they could tell us what is REALLY bothering them about going.i used to hide behind the door and watch and everytime without fail she would be happy and playing within a few minutes.
    cindy i am really looking forward to next week,i think i am mostly looking forward to staying at your house so i can have a much deserved break from all these boys here.
    ok must be off,work work work to do.

    Well Nikki just left and she is such a gem, she even bought dinner over for me so i dont need to cook!! Just wait till you see how big Cooper is now Nikki - he is a monster - such a lovely bub, very calm and peaceful.
    Nikki- good to hear you are feeling a bit better today - I'm sure, as you say, things will get better after the move, moving is stressful at the best of times let alone with 4 kids and two of them not being 100% well at the moment!
    I'm rally looking forward to next week too! I have a port a cot and another normal cot to put your munchkins in! All is sorted - we are going to finally get the spare room set up properly on wednesday! Talking of wednesday -Al has the day off would it be of any help if al and i made it over to your place to help move some stuff? Al has lots of practice moving and i'm sure he would like to catch up with grant at the same time! Also our stationwagon gets heaps in it! Ask grant and see if her would like the help and just say the word and will will be there like mary poppins! Only we will drive over instead of trying to fly with a stupid umbrella which we all know just doesnt work! Hands up those who tried it as a kid!

    Well, my princesses are sleeping now so i might go and have a snooze too!

    Love to you all!

    See you tomorrow morning hopefully kristie!! Is there any time that is better than a nother? I was thinking of coming about 10ish if that suits you.

I need to do something though. i cant take him away coz he works on the weekends and well i suppose i could take him out for dinner! Maybe next weekend i could take him out for dinner??

    Hi!

    omg - you guys are talking so much! hehe. I'm probably going to struggle to keep up for a while! hehe.
    Dylans going well - Louis had a cuddle today so we got some great photos! He's finally letting me put him in the rocker for a sleep so that will make life a bit easier...He's just so beautiful though...I'm so in love with my little family! Louis is being a bit trying at times with attention and of course everything seems to happen at once (Dylan needing food/doing a poo with Louis falling over in the hallway - LOL) I think I'll be very busy when Michael goes back to work! hehe.
    For those that asked - Michael is home for 2 weeks so I'm really happy about that! I think things will have settled down a little by then!

    I've actually got a few pictures up on my my space page which is - my space dot com slash krisvee (I think??) they photos scroll through so you'll see the ones of Dylan at the end - I'll add more to that I think - they come up heaps better than my baby online website...

    Kirsty - Sounds like you had a great weekend - good luck at your appt!

    Cindy - Don't stress about catching up yet - everyones sooo busy and not's that easy not that you've got another bubba! Would love to see you tomorrow though!! We'll be home!!
    I'm so wrapped with my labour as well - it really was my perfect labour!!! (well as perfect as they can get -lol!)
    With Thursday - I might just see how I'm going on wed - but hopefully I'll be up for it! I'm a bit nervous about going out on my own with 2 kids at the moment!! I mean I'm sure it will be fine but....What time was it meant to be?
    I'm sure Al understands why you haven't done anything major for his 30th!! I mean geez - you've just had a bubba!! Don't be too hard on yourself! I'm sure dinner out would be great for the two of you!

    Chat later!


    Nikki - Gorgeous ticker photo!!! I can't wait to see little Harry again!!! Isn't amazing we've all had our bubbas??
    Sounds like it will be a great break to stay at Cindy's for the night! Leave the boys to sort themselves out!

    Ohhhh Kristie I just looked at your site. Thank you for posting the link. It's great to see some up to date pictures of you, DH and Louis. You look soooooo gorgeously happy, you are literally glowing! Big big big grin. Dylan is such a little cutie, and Louis is as stunning as ever!
