    Hey ladies

    Congrats again Bec, on the arrival of Annabelle. Sounds like things are going well and hope they continue to do so.

    Teresa - that's cute - can't wait to see pics of Hamish running around.



    Beata - good luck with TTC! I wish you well!

    Meercat - how is the big bed going? Has Tiah's sleep improved?

    How's everyone else going? How are you all coping with a toddler? Is everyone walking now? Fraser isn't and quite frankly, is nowhere near. He'll walk round the furniture and between pieces, but not even standing up unaided, so I think we're way off. Which is fine, as he's keeping me on my toes as is! Still climbing heaps, which can be a worry! We're putting a new kitchen in at the moment and he's having fun scaling the cupboards!

    Hi!

    Beata - Aww...thanks! I'm certainly not a supermum though!! Things are pretty chilled out now though now that Jayden is past the baby stage! He's into everything though that's for sure! He climbs the boys bunk ladder and can get onto the kitchen table or onto the desks to see the computer screens!! Very clever little monkey! He also climbs up the slide and goes down all by himself - he is so so so small but does such grown up things! I guess it's because he watches his 3 older brothers do it all and he doesn't want to miss out!
    I had a quite a few clucky moments when Jayden turned 1 but I'm ok now...although I think I could keep having kids as long as they were given to me at about 18m - 2yo! lol...

    Miamunchkin - Sounds like you'll know it when he starts running around! It's busy but at the same time you can give them so more more freedom when they can walk. I leave the back door open to our house (when the weathers nice enough) and he can just walk out there and play - most of the time his older brothers help him and keep an eye on him if I have to duck back in the house.

    Is anyone still bfing? I'm still giving a morning feed but really hoping to wean soon...problem is he often wakes around 5am and it's the only way to get him back to sleep at that time - I know I'd prefer to sleep than get up then and feed him breakfast - lol!

    Chat later!

    Wow, this thread seems to have died again!

    How are we all going?

    Fraser's still not walking! Are we the only ones?

    We've had a run of illness also. 5 weeks now. Fraser has had a 'flu virus, 2 ear infections and tonsillitis. We ended up at hospital with him on Sunday as he was completely limp and lifeless. Really gave us a scare!

    Hi ladies!

    Mia, that's so scary hun!! Poor wee Fraser. We've been lucky here (touch wood) as Cam has had only had a couple of little colds to date, so have been pretty lucky. He had a stuffy nose a few days ago and a bit of a cough but I put his steam machine in his bedroom which seems to do the trick. I also run hot water in the shower while I'm giving him a bath so his nose gets unblocked. OMG I've had a wine and can't spell. It's taken me ages to write this bit! lol. Mia, Cam has only begun PROPERLY crawling a couple of weeks ago. I mean, he was commando crawling for aaaaaages and just recently got up on his knees. So no walking here for a long while!!

    Krisvee, no wonder Jayden is geting into everything just by watching his older brothers! How cute hun

    Bec, how is your lil princess going?

    Hi to everyone else!

    Thanks Miss B! It was scary! We knew something was up on Saturday as he was screaming crying and not stopping, which he never does! We were out with friends for dinner (who also have a child whom is constantly ill) so we were considering cancelling, but we never get to see them as their child is always ill. We went anyway, but Fraser cried the whole time then lay on top of me for about 15-250 mins without moving (which never happens) and then proceeded to projectile vomit everywhere! I had no spare clothes to get him home in, but luckily they did (a year older but it did the trick - just me to go home in soppy clothes). He screamed all night then in the morning, we decided to take him to PMH (the children's hospital) but I decided to give him Nurofen as we left and as we pulled up, he started singing! I was mortified walking into Emergency with a singing child! But, there were so many children with the same symptoms, that they opened up a separate section for us! When the doc saw him, he was a bit lethargic, so they knew we weren't messing around. As soon as they examined him, they gave him steroids and penicillin. The doc said the vomiting was his tonsils bursting and the pus (sorry - TMI) going into his tummy.

    So glad that Cam is crawling! I thought he may go straight to walking! I'm starting to get annoyed at people saying "aww, is he not walking" yet and all the looks of sympathy. Really bugging, but then that's my personality that's letting it get to me - need to learn to rise above it!

    Hey to everyone else!

    Aww hun, don't worry about these insensitive people! When I tell people Cam is 14 1/2 months and he just started crawling on his knees, they look at me like there's something wrong with him! I just remind them that they ALL DO IT IN THEIR OWN TIME'. Damn it!!!!

    Oh your poor wee munchkin! I would have seriously lost the plot if Cam went all limp on me like that!! Mother's intuition hey? I had to have a giggle when you said that after the nurofen he started singing! hehehehehehe. Nurofen makes me so happy when I take it, you'd think I was really high! lol Lucky these nice people had some spare clothes Give wee Fraser a nice cuddle from me hun, hope he's all good now

    Hey everyone

    Mia that sounds sooooo scary! But gave me a chuckle that he started singing when you arrived - so glad to know he's on the mend. And it sounds and looks like Fraser can get everywhere and everything he needs fine without walking so why on earth would he?! It's annoying when people say 'aww they're not such and such yet' isn't it. He'll be up and on the go in no time I'm sure!

    Beata yay for Cam crawling, bet he'll be on the move soon too. Glad he hasn't caught too many bugs, the hot shower is a good tip, might keep that one

    We're pretty good here, DD has full glue ear in both ears, completely blocked, and whilst it in itself isn't too concerning (we're keeping an eye on her hearing and so far it seems unaffected) but does make her more prone to ear infections. We're on the 4th or 5th for the year now And every other vax she's been fine, but the MMR gave her high temps for a week and she was miserable. Never seen her like it, it was awful. It's so hard to know when she's not well (apart from after that shot) as she rarely runs a temp, pulls her ears, goes off food etc that I often feel lost and find I'm running to the GP more to have her ears checked. More often than not she has an infection so I guess my radar pings something. Many more infections and I think we have to see a specialist. Shall wait and see what happens.

    She is SO testing my patience at the moment too. And as her walking picks up speed to running (with zero turning ability!!) she's started to race away from us too. Who would have thought 'ta' could be said so loudly on repeat, and I'm starting to understand all the different 'ta's' she says too lol

    Hope everyone else is well and happy

    HB, big cuddles for Arlie too I can understand the helplessness you feel when they are sick, particularly with a temp Just a question hun, how common is the glue ear in babies/toddlers? I often worry when Cam has this huge chunk of earwax in the ear and I try to prod in there and get it out

    Oh man that would be scary! Glad it was just his tonsils, poor little guy

    Dont worry ladies, there is a little boy in Tiah's playgroup who is 18 months old and still only walking on his knees. It doesnt matter HOW they get around as long as they do This little guy actually overtakes all the walkers when they all go for the same toy!

    We are talking Tiah to a chiro next week to see if they can help with her sleep. I have been heating her room each night and got her night wakings down to three times, but I would love to cut it to one or even none!

    She is super cute now though. Just put her to bed and as she was falling asleep she turned over to me, took out her dummy and said "shisses???" and kissed me on the cheek. I just love her

    Thanks Beata - I do say that they do it in their own time, but I sometimes wonder if I'm trying to convince myself! Thanks for the tip about the shower also! I often put on the vaporiser but Fraser doesn't normally sleep very well with that on, so hot shower steam may be the answer! Hope you're still enjoying a glass of vino - I am!

    Thanks Dianne - he can get around everywhere he needs to! I hope Arlee is on the mend soon. Poor little love - glue ear is not pleasant at all. Fantastic to hear that her hearing hasn't been affected though! I'm with you on not knowing when they are not well - I feel like we haven't been away from the docs lately. May be worth seeing a specialist just in case - never does any harm! I know when the docs made a big deal about Fraser's hernia that we were scared to see the specialist, but when we did, he said it was nothing! Glad to hear Arlee is having fun running around and hope she learns to turn soon! I had a flick through your photos today and they are gorgeous - especially loved the ones at Hillary's (just down the road from us)!

    Yeah, it was funny when he started singing on the way to the hospital. I was so embarrassed to be taking a child, who I felt was sick enough to be in hospital, but who was actually singing and laughing - just shows you what Nurofen can do! The doc said though that the lethargy was obvious even through the singing!

    Aww - Tiah sounds sooooo cute! Fraser randomly blows kisses which are adorable, but that is super cute! Good luck with the chiro - I really hope sleep starts happening for you soon, Jess. I can't even begin to explain how much respect I have for you, getting through with sleep deprivation. I love how you are always positive and really hope things improve soon!

    Aww, Beata - another thing Cam will do in his own time. I bet ya there are heaps of things Cam does that the other bubs don't! I have always been super affectionate with Fraser since day one (much to other's dismay) and I think that's why he's so keen to blow kisses. He also initiates hugs (or huggles) most of the day. He started Day Care a few weeks back (one day a week) and one of the girls said he gives the best hugs she has ever had! They are just the best!

    Oh, by the way, have you decided to TTC? No need to answer, just thought I'd let you know I was thinking of you!

    Isn't it great that there have been lots of posts today! I'm super excited!

    Oh - just wanted to add that we joined the library today. F loves books - I spend most of the day reading to him, but I think I underestimated the power of the library. He went NUTS! Started pulling all the books out of the shelves and there was a lady trying to read to her son - well, F decided he wanted in on the action and was trying to climb up on her knee. She wasn't very receptive to his "need" but it didn't stop him! He had a great time. We came home with 9 books, all of which we have read 3-5 times already!

    Beata whilst I don't think it's common (glue ear) I don't think it's uncommon either. The fluid builds up behind the ear drum, so you can't actually see it. I have been told they can have waxier ears but so far haven't seen any in DD's ears. The GP did a pressure test on both her ears, a machine that blows a small amount of air into the ear and tests the reaction of the ear drum. A normal ear will have a wavy line/movement on the print out. Both her ears were a dead flat line. No movement at all He is really pushing the 'she's probably half deaf/that's why she talks so loud/should get it checked out' angle, but then our normal GP who is fairly low intervention says keep an eye on it, it could rectify itself, and if we don't feel her hearing is affected then see if it clears up on it's own. We are both fairly low intervention ourselves, but many more ear infections and I think we will go to a specialist just to be sure.

    Hi!

    Sorry to hear about sick bubba's!!! My bigger boys have been getting a bit sick so I've kept Jayden having a morning breastfeed - keep saying I'll wean but I may just wait until we get through winter! It's no big deal because I lov ehaving cuddles with him in the morning anyway!
    Jayden's well - VERY cheeky though...but so gorgeous! He's not talking heaps but he loves cars and birds - oh and his brothers - he gives them big hugs and kisses...
    Just a quick one from me today...chat soon!
