    Oi! Lea! (my fault for taking my usual 4 years to write a post hey!)

    Hey girls! Dinner was honey almond chicken cept the shops didn't have almonds so we had cashews instead! And salad. And the good kind of guests who did the dishes while I fed River - they've definitely scored themselves a re-invite!

    Anna, hope you're not to stressed about the Whooping cough thing, hope you guys stay healthy!

    Annat, that's good that those swellings aren't a major complication, does Jett seem bothered by them, or does it just look nasty?

    Yay for all these mobile babies! River spent a good deal of this arvo upset cos he can't remember how to roll. Must admit...I did have a bit of a giggle at his expense. He's trying so hard!

    Maz, yep they've got a sale on at the moment (I didn't realise til you said it...thanks!!) And it's babylegs . com . au Caddie, there are quite a few pairs at $10 at the moment. Get the cowprint ones, then Ruby can match Vy and Riv!!

    Why Adele, what's wrong with your car now? Hope the fixers didn't do bad things!

    We're looking at getting a newer car (new-er as opposed to new lol). I wanted a people mover, cos they're fun, but Rans suggested a wagon, which I never wanted, but he's found some nice looking ones, and the bonus of those is that it'll be heaps easier to get the pram in and out cos I won't have to lift it to reach the boot!
    But I've left him in charge of it really. I'm impressed with any car really.

    Anyway, got a headache, bit annoying, so I might head to bed soon.
    A big hello to all those girls I didn't mention, especially the lurkers!! Let us know how you're going!! 'Lurkers' always seems like a Dr. Seuss sort of word to me! You lurkers riding Turkers wearing Sirca coloured Burquas. xo

    Nelle, poor kiddo's legs look bad but they are mighty painful for him too. Its so hard to avoid touching or moving them, esp when he sleeps on his side Ive taken pics so I will upload them in the morning.

    Oh no Anna, I hope you got your meds in time to stop you and Xander getting whooping cough! My family in Perth didnt get to see Jett before we left as my Aunt had WC after being vaccinated 40yrs before. Turns out the vaxs dont last long enough and theyre noticing a reoccurance in adults that then passes on to kids.
    My brother has to be careful with it too as he is allergic to the WC vax. Speaking of, its his 14th birthday today my baby bro is growing up. I feel so old lol

    Well buddha is asleep finally (after snoozing for the last hour and then waking up cause he was hungry YAY!) so I guess I should be to!

    caddie I've been awake since 3am too!!! Nina woke up and I fed her and she went back to sleep, but then the rain started and it was really hever, which startled her, then she wanted to play with us. Heath ended up waking up cause I was in our room with the monitor on and he could hear her squealing while playing (this is her new noise now, very annoying!) So we both got up with her and hopped on the computer, only for Nina to fall asleep at 4.45 So then Heath and I were wide awake but Nina was sleeping.
    I ended up going back to bed, but couldn't sleep, and Nina woke up at 7. It'll be a long day for me with only 4 hours sleep last night.

    Jack's hearing is perfect but we did the right thing comign in, as before 3mths if eharing loss is there then they catch it early and you would never know development wise, 3-6mth some delay, 6mth older you will be able to tell bub has hearing problems,, but all I care about is Jack is fine WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ok best move trying to get housework done before Jack wakes it gets to hot and we have swim class start today so will be tired after that

    Morning all,
    Anna- Hope Xander is fine, its a bit of a worry isn't it. I'm glad I got Ashleigh Vax when I hear stories like this.

    Adele- Glad Riley is doing okay. Pain in the ass bout your car though.

    Rach75- yay, Jacks hearing is great! Must be a load off your mind.

    Jodi- Nina being very cheeky! Ash never cries in the night now when she wants me she'll do that squealing or laughing, something fun and when I go in she looks wide awake having a great time in there! Luckily though a good feed always puts her back to sleep.

    caddie- I hope you got a little extra sleep in!

    chrissy- I remember the whole being a teenager, I'm not looking forward to Ash getting there eventually, I remember everything being such a drama. Just remember one day your 14yr old might have kids of her own and it will be paybacks for what she's doing to you!

    AnnaT- Hows little Jetts leg today?

    Nelle- I'm getting a newer car too later this year though for when I return to work. My requisite has to be something not too big cause I cannot park!

    I just went on that website and bought legwarmers, had to get 2 pairs seeing postage was the same. Bought those cute cow ones and cherry ones.
    Okay better get off the computer I feel poor Ash is being ignored left to play in there alone for the last 35 mins!

    hi girls,
    so much has happened, hope i can remember what was in the last thread!
    annat, glad that jett is ok. nothing worse than seeing our bubs in distress
    anna** - glad that neither you or xander have WC (thanks for the heads up ) and make sure you get that vax done young lady!
    rach - glad that jesse's hearing is fine. it is always best to get it checked just to allay your fears.
    sorry to hear about restless bubba's...especially those that think the middle of the night is a fun time to play!

    ainsleigh did not want to go to bed again last night. we tried some rice cereal last night, and she got a major case of the hiccups when we put her to bed (tho that could of been as she got herself so worked up crying) and she finally fell asleep in my bed with me ( i had a ripper headache and dh was on the phone to his bro in qld, so lying in bed together was the best solution!!) ainsleigh has her first orientation day at daycare today... and tomorrow we are starting a swimming class, thirty mins for bubs then an hour of exercise for the mums. should be fun, going with a few from my mother's group.

    hello to everyone i did not mention - nelle, maz, shell, sharleen, ambz, chrissy, adele, nessa, helen (good to hear from you), belle.... and the MIA girls who may be lurking chrissyt, merrie, littlep.... sorry if i forgot anyone, been up since 4am as dh went back to the mines today... single mum time again for two weeks AAAAGH!!!!

    Happy 5 months to Ambah for yesterday... these bubbas of ours are gonna be on the move before we know it.

    AnnaT - I'm happy to hear that Jett's leg is alright. Bit of a worry tho... did they say if the reaction is likely to happen again?

    Nelle - Woo hoo on getting a newer car, they are much better value than buying 'new' new anyway as you don't loose $4k the second you leave the dealership. I dunno what your budget it, but if you are looking at a wagon, seriously consider a TJ Magna... they are excellent value for money and very rarely do they have a problem. Parts are cheap (as is insurance) and they have decent power... oh, and they actually look really good with a set of wheels, lowered and dark tint

    Rikki - Yes Mum, I will go get the Boostrix jab (someday soon). How exciting little Ainsleigh and her first taste of solids.. did she like the rice cereal?

    Shell - It is a scary thought with the whooping cough, little bubs can get so sick with it. I'm glad I've had Xander vaccinated as if he does get it, his symptoms will be a lot milder than a bub that isn't vax'd.

    Chrissy - How'd the gym go? What sorta bike are you riding down to philip island?

    Big hellos to Maz, Belle, Kellxx, Adele and all the rest of you lovely yummy Mummies. I gotta fly and go hang out some freshly washed nappies.

    Sharleen- Its a worry isn't it. Some days Ash will slide around the floor on her back, the other day she pushed herself all the way over to the TV and started pulling on cords and I thought god its time to start thinking bout baby proofing the house. If I'm not in the room i just put her in the play pen now.

    Rikki- Those swimming classes sound like fun. How did the childcare day go? How often is she going in?

    I finally got around to cleaning the little bath seat for Ashleigh and she had her first big bath. I think she was a little sus of it, she didn't splash around like she does in the little bath spent the time sucking on her face washer!

    Anna**- good to hear you and Xander can take the antibiotics phew...

    Well girls Julia's full of beans lately not much sleeping to be done in our house during the day she just doesnt want to sleep.

    I got the weirdest call from the real estate today we rent... someone sent our body corporate a complaint about our plants in the flower boxes that are attached to the balcony??? how weird, we just have herbs in them, no one can see them...wonder why? apparently the owner called the real estate but didnt have the letter in front of him so I have to wait to find out what the complaint was out... do they think we are growing something illegal instead of Parsley?

    Back later for more personals girls.
