    Natty - I'm being chased around the house too, but he's still commando (dragging himself with one arm) so really slow. He whinges as he goes though and when I move away the whinging increases!

    Hi Girls - Feeling a bit flat today, not sure if I'm coming down with a cold or what, yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and while that's gone I just feel completely sapped and so tired. I've got fuzziness in my eyes which I had just after having Amelia, wonder if it's because I'm tired. It's horrible though, only in one eye, same one as before! I'm also ovulating so not sure if hormones are related, I always feel crap when I'm ovulating, some months worse than others, does anybody else get pain and tiredness when they ovulate? Anyway, off to do some food shopping when Amelia wakes, god I hate food shopping!

    Hi Madame.....I think everyone's too busy conversing on Facebook! lol 8 days late and no AF........aaah those darn BFN's......you must be pregnant, keep poas'ing and you'll get it, I can feel it in my bones! The Target sale has some great stuff huh, I got a couple of things yesterday too, I just love that Little People stuff, what a great idea. You can buy so many add on things which makes for great presents people can buy and it's not all expensive either! Amelia is going to be very spoilt this birthday/Christmas, I have bought quite a bit from all the sales lately ha ha ha, my fave being the Little Tikes car I got her from Toys R Us the other day, yay! xx

    Hey Sarah.. Remember your dates were all screwed with Harper and you ended up being heaps earlier than what you first thought? Maybe that's what happening here?? I dunno.. It's weird!
    Wow the big 2 hey!? Is he excited?? Gosh he is such a beautiful little boy!
    I was thinking of going to the toy sale but I hate shopping at the best of times, let alone when there is a flamin toy sale on!!!

    You are more than welcome, I meant every word! Sorry you are sick, booo, is it a cold? Hope you're all well again soon beautiful. Oh and me too, we are thinking end of year. It would be so lovely if some of us could share the journey all over again together don't you think! I get a bit nervous about the whole possible 2 year only age gap, people think I'm crazy when I tell them but I just keep hoping that I get another baby like Amelia and I should be right.......unless she turns into an absolute s/head when she hits the terrible two's ha ha. My mum told me other than a few tanties that come with the territory she didn't find us difficult at all around that age, she said it has a lot to do with how you bring them up, I hope that's true ha ha ha.

    Hi Huni, yes a bit of a cold hoping it goes away fast as I hate it to play with my fitness I have worked so hard to get after Anton! thanks sweeties your to kind!! end of year is soon, I am thinking after xmas as I want to enjoy summer slim and in a swim suit for a change, trying to tone up as much as I can, as my trainier said it will help with another bubba!! better than the flab i had with both bubbas before! hehe it would be fantastic if we could all share the journey again!!


    I don't think your crazy a 2 year gap would be good, thats what I wanted, It just didnt' happen, so we have a 3 year gap! next baby will be a 2 year gap maybe for us! speaking from experience, I have had to good babies in a row so there is no saying you won't get another good one Ali, I also think the tantrums are harder from 3 on wards and they have a mouth and really learn how to use it!! Bella is such a bossy butts and always in my face these days!!! sometimes I wish for the baby days back when I was boss!! haha

    off for a run, have a wonderful day gorgeous girl, see you FB later

    Yes it is soon and I'm a bit the same, have been slack with my weight loss and still have a good 3 kgs to lose, I really should get my butt into gear, I want to be a little fitter and slimmer before falling pregnant again, although I got pregnant not long after getting married and I'd spent the 4 months prior to that with a personal trainer so I think I was in pretty good shape anyway! Started Zumba on Monday nights, loving it, should do it twice a week but can't find the time....the other night is when DH plays indoor cricket so I can't and the other days don't suit. Well, this week I'm stocked up on salad ingredients and I'm going to try and eat much better and not sneak in that chocolate. Thanks for the advice, I don't feel so bad about the 2 year gap then, 3 sounds like an interesting time ha ha ha!. Have a great weekend and hope you're better soon.

    Hi chickadees!

    Well I have put Abbey in her cot awake for her 3 sleeps today / tonight and havent heard boo from her while she's drifting off....fingers crossed this keeps working! She whinged at her lunchtime sleep but DH just went in and put her dummy back in and left her and she ended up sleeping for nearly 2 hours - unprecedented!! She hardly ever sleeps that long during the day!!! I so want her to keep going like this....she hasnt slept through yet but last night was heaps better compared to what I'm used to!

    Ali - I know people that have a freaking 10 month age gap and cope so you'll be fine whatever you do.....JD and Abbey are 2.5 years exactly and I find it challenging most of the time but I dont think it matters what age gap you have it's still going to be a trying time!! Amelia will be used to having you 100% of the time and there's going to be this new little tacker who is going to need you way more than she does.....gone are the days of sitting there feeding for an hour!! The bond that the kids have is worth it....I can see that Abbey loves JD so much and I never had that being an only child so it's going to be nice for them to grow up together....

    Pam - Hope you are feeling better - nothing worse than feeling like crap and having to deal with kidlets etc!

    Hope everyone else is having an exciting Sat night....I'm going to watch Thurs' night's eps of How I Met Your Mother once DH decides to stop slaughtering people on the Xbox....

    Hi Shayna - you know what, Abbey is getting it, isn't it great! She's starting to sleep longer because basically sleep breeds sleep, it means she's starting to feel comfortable and relaxed in her cot. Before you know it she'll be sleeping through and hey, even if she stirs and needs the dummy in the night, that still counts (Amelia still does it some nights but she doesn't actually wake up).....I'm so happy for you, you've done the hard yards and it's well and truly your turn for some good days and nights. YAYYYYYYYYYYYY, let's have a party! Seriously though, not to sound silly but it's really hard teaching them to self settle, I hated that week but it's so worth it in the end. You should be really stoked with yourself right now sweets! xx
