    Well thank god i am feeling better today, still have sore throat though so I'm guessing cold might be coming on.

    Meg- God it is gonna be horribly hot. I'm sure wedding will be great anyway. Is it a big one?

    Nelle- yes I was thinking what was Nelle doing posting so early! Hopefully once he goes down for a sleep so can you. God we can't use our change table anymore I can see Ash doing acrobatics on it, for ages now I've just had to change her on towel on floor or bed.

    Caddie- Poor Ruby, its horrible when they have sore throat cause they can't explain it to you. Have you got soemthing to rub on ulcers?

    Shell they are at the back of her throat. The dr basically said panadol,fluids,rest and bring her back in a week if no better. What is making me upset is that she is not sleeping hardly at all during the day and then at night getting up at 430am yesterday and 5am today. She wont sleep unless im there and then proceeds to wiggle all night and kick me in the head. Hubby is no help.Basically told me to stop whinging and im not the only one is tired so no dinner for him tonight. Cook is on strike.
    Anyways didnt want her porridge,custard and ate the pink icing off a cup cake. Has had some bottles of milk so thats good. She wants to eat. She will chew it up then just spits it out.
    OK goota go.Landlord paying me a visit. The joys.I feel like my kids are leeches sometimes. Sucking the life out of me..
    Ok tiredness talking.lol

    Caddie - sorry to hear about poor Ruby - does she like yoghurt, the coolness might make her throat feel better.

    Shell - glad you are feeling a bit better..

    will bbl

    Oh dear Caddie! 4:30 is terribly early. She has always been an early riser hasn't she? And being sick would make it much harder! Fair enough. I wouldn't be cooking either! You must be exhausted!

    Shell - Yep it is a HUGE wedding. My sis is marrying a Malaysian guy, so she is having the traditional Chinese tea ceremony the night before, and I think there will be about 200 at the wedding.

    Nelle - You were up early this morning!

    Laurin - how are you going with hubby gone?

    Ok I am off to a wedding rehersal soon. It is going to take me more than an hour to get there, so have to go get organised.

    Oh caddie that sucks, and its not like she can gargle anything either. Like Laurin suggested, yoghurt anything cold and easy to swallow. I'd be on strike too. Tell your hubby to spend 24 hours in your shoes then see if he still wants to tell you to stop whinging!

    Meg, wow, sounds interesting though, nice when its another tradition that you can learn about.

    Bathing Ash just now was nightmare. Lately when she chucks a hissy fit she throws herself forward and places her face in ground so guess who decided to throw hissy fit in bath and throw face forward. So then she is screaming cause her face went under water and while she is screaming she does it again! So of course by that stage she was just beside herself and bathtime obviously over. Hope she learnt a lesson!

    Caddie - how is Ruby going?

    Meg - wow that wedding sounds mega, you have got a big few days ahead of you. Yeah, I am fine with DH away, just trying to keep busy, I am trying to have something planned everyday so I am motivated iykwim. today was busy, had gymbaroo then a friend for lunch and then friends from Sydney called in for coffee this arvo.

    Shell - have you seen those crayons that you use in the bath, rylee loves them - don't know if Ash would be interested in them and distract her.

    Okay, better go wash the floors....

    till the morrow.

    I've had such a busy couple of days today, I'm knackered. I'll try my best with personals.

    caddie - poor Ruby (and you), I hope she gets better real soon. Hopefully you get some decent sleep tonight.
    I'll have to take a look at your artwork in a sec.

    shell - PMSL at Ashs' bathtime tantrums. She'll probably hate the bath completely now after that. Hopefully not though. Nina is the same as Julia, during the day she'd give anything to get in there and play. I've recently bought her a new bath book and toys. But her all time favourite bath toy is ducky. She has about 6 of them, and insists ducky/duckies bath with her each night.

    belle - it's so exciting that you're having a girl How are you feeling lately, has the m/s eased up for you yet? How is Julia going?

    nelle - you were up pretty early weren't you. Did you get your nanna nap today? Lets hope you get some decent sleep tonight as well. Not long to go for you until mr or miss nelle's bubby is here. (it would probably help if you gave us a hint on gender or names )

    maz - how are you and your tribe going? Have you all settled in to your new routine with the new addition? How is Vy going, is she still really clingy with you? How does she react to you b/f Mateauz? Questions, questions, questions!!! Nina is now calling my belly baby Emily, or more like bubba Emmy. She can't say Emily.

    laurin - I take my hat off to you, looking after Rylee on your own for most of the time. And travelling around like you do. At least you keep yourselves busy.

    As for me and Nina, all going well. Nina is growing into a gorgeous little girl. She's copying pretty much everything we say now, and starting to put sentences together.
    Emily has engaged now. My belly has dropped, and I feel like my pelvis is going to break into 2. I'm getting a lot of pains, quite often and reguarly. And my ankles/feet are swelling up. Aaaah, the joys of pregnancy!!! Not long to go now though. We haven't had a chance to do anything with Emily's room. We're going to finish it during the Easter break. Heath has that time off, and we were planning on going to Townsville, but the people we were staying with have decided to come to Cairns instead! Rikki and Ainsleigh will be in Townsville during Easter as well, so we're trying to work out when to see them. Hopefully we get to meet them. I'd love to see Nina and Ainsleigh together.
    Not much else happening. Heath's birthday today, so had the parents and brothers and sisters around for dinner. I was too tired to cook so we got a big family meal from KFC. Yummy!!

    hi girls

    just a quicky, i have averaged about 2 hours a night these last few nights as caity has been very ill, and we are just about to go to the doctors, i am a walking zombie atm, and feeling very weak..bring on my frozen coke its the only thing that makes me feel alive.

    jodi, wow i cant believe emily is engaged, none of my kids have ever engaged before labour.

    nelle, i bet it a girl......not long now, and i also suspect that you are due any day now, i know you a sneaky like that, so good luck with the birth.

    belle, cant wait to see you and julia, is jeffery coming too? my mobile number is now defunked so you will have to contact me at home, you still have my home number dont you.

    maz, thanks for everything mate, and yes THIS IS MY LAST.

    helen, liam is ok, our last scan they couldnt see the heart properly, so he neeeds to be checked out by a specialist when he is born, so we changed hospitals jic.

    shell, wow ash is a little bathtime terror isnt she, luckily for me caity loves the bath/shower, but since she was born i have tipped water over her head counting, 123....tip water, so she would get used to it.

    caddie, hope ruby and yourself had a good night

    well this is a mega post for me, and i better get of my ars, and shower, and get to the docs..........hi to everyone i have missed

    Caddie.. you princess album is absolutel gorgeous! You could so sell them! They would make such a great gift!

    Anna**.. how are you honey? I hope youre still around. I miss hearing about spunky man Xander. How is he going? Getting big i bet. Are you still into your cake making? I use to love seeing all your creations.

    Chrissy.. i hope Caity gets better soon and the doctor can give her something so you both can get some sleep. How have you been going up there with the temperatures? It hasnt been too bad around my way.. off and on we have hot days, not much usually over 30.

    Jodi.. hows Nina going in her big bed? (shes in there now isnt she?) Wont be long before we put Jess in his Would love to see Emily's room once you have finished. I still have no idea what to do for this baby (provided its confirmed its a girl). I think ill just get lots of cute pink things. I really like all those cute pink elephants and garafes you can get. So cute Not long left for you hun! I cant believe how fast it has gone, since we were talking about our Rubellas! That 3 months seemed like it would take forever! lol

    Nelle.. do you use liners at all with your bumgenius? Like even when having to apply cream? a girlfriend who also uses them said she hasnt bothered using liners when she's had to put cream on and it hasnt made a difference to the nappy. She just uses the same Papaw as i do. Jess has a little bit of a rash and am unsure as to whether to keep using a liner, or will it just be fine with the papaw and no liner? Just dont want to wreck them since it says no creams on the lable.

    Belle.. so happy for you and your princess! I love the name Tara btw if i havent told you already. I had a friend at school by the name Tara and she was the prettiest, loveliest girl!

    Shell.. oh dear to their tanties hey. Jesse does the same, puts his head to the floor inbetween his legs. Theyre so flexible hey! lol.

    Meg.. whens the wedding? Should be fun! Hows J going? Is he getting better? Poor little mite.

    Laurin.. how was Gymberoo? Ive never been. I know Jesse would love it. He loves it when we go to the playcentres.

    Maz.. Vy is so cute! Love her hair! Hows she going with her little brother? Taken over the mother roll yet? Hope youre getting some sleep and some TLC for yourself.

    AnnaT.. hope you could understand my PM. If you have any questions let me know.

    How are everyone's kids going on the vegie side of things? Jesse refuses to eat them. He's like his father. Grahame hates vegetables. If you can get them in jesse's mouth he'll happily eat it but by sight its like nah i dont want that before hes even tried it. He went off cooked frozen vegies and then i had a hit with the vegies in canned vegetable soup. Nows he doesnt want a bar of those. So last night cooked him some baked potatoes and pumpkin as he loves them. Not sure what else to do. I guess putting the vegies hidden in his meals but sometimes he just has fish fingers or nuggets or sausages and not sure what to put with them. Any ideas?

    quick check in before we head of this arvie for Agnes we wont be back till after easter

    feeling a bit worried here, had a skin check yesterday and I have a basal cell carcenoma (sp??) on my shoulder that has to come out, next thurs here I was worried bout my moles hadn't even noticed the sun spot the receptionist freaked me out saying it needs to come off ASAP as they are malignent anyway...

    Kelly have you tried the birdeye products, theres vegie fingers, vegie patties, salmona nd vegi patties, chicken and vegie pattie, jack will rarely eat vegies unless its peas so about 3 times a week he has these for tea, they are cooked in oven like fish fingers

    Lol Chrissy, I don't mean to be sneaky, trust me, this time around I am happy to wait! I'm so tired, I can't possibly fathom the thought of a tiring labour!! Thanks though. Hope you get Caity sorted really quickly.

    Can't help you with the vegies Kell, Riv eats everything. As for the liners, some creams come off onto a nappy and kinda block it up, affecting aborbency, and others don't. For example, I have a Gaia Soothing Lotion (which is great), and that clogs the nappy kinda, like I see white marks where there's residue there. And I have an Aromababy Balm (which is also great), but that doesn't come off the bottom onto the nappy as far as I can tell. If in doubt, use a liner I guess.
    What colour is your pawpaw ointment jar? I *think* I remember hearing that the red jar might clog nappies because it's petroleum based, but the yellow jar might not because it's not...or something. Maybe even just get a liner or piece of material, smear your creams on it, chuck it in the wash, and see what comes out and what doesn't?

    Yep I was up early for me yesterday, and today was another late one though, Riv was up with teething in the night. I worry about me sleeping in these days, I wake to hear him yelling (just the usual 'mum! I'm up!' kind of yell, which usually dies down as he finds something to play with for 10mins then starts again for another min, then dies down...) but I wonder how long that goes on for before I actually wake, you know? I'm so exhausted, I hope he's not yelling for too long. At least he doesn't sound unhappy, can't miss those cries.
    And I suppose I should be glad he's getting these eye teeth now and not once the baby's here...

    Try not to worry Rach, people are getting those moley/spot things taken out all the time. Not fun though, hope you have fun on your hols.

    Hi to everyone else! Just waiting for a little man to be ready for his nap, he's currently wandering round the house and playing with whatever takes his fancy.
