goodnes, all this way down does it still count as bronze???
Posted 23 August 2006 - 10:30 AM
oooooooooh I feel like I've emerged from a fog!!! Hamish only woke for a feed at 1am and 5.30am which is a vast improvement from being wide awake from 2.30am the night before. I feel so refreshed that I've done my tummy crunches, been on the x-trainer and chopped veges for tea!! Poor Hamish had to watch all that and is now so tired he's off for his nap while I have my porridge.
About time I did a few personals!!
Nadine - Happy six months to Kayla yesterday and fab news too.
Kylie1979 - Hamish isn't on solids yet - he must be about the only one!!
We are going to the mothers group talk on introducing solids today so he may well be on them tomorrow.
Jeanelle - how did you go finding cook tops? Don't think you've said already?
Chantz - I can't believe how much gorgeous hair Tiahni has!
Threeforme - Hamish was born big too and has never looked back!!
Lisa - Thanks for asking, my op was minor and all better now
Delbo - Thanks for reminding me about keeping dozy myself when feeding Hamish in the night - I now sit with my eyes closed.
Kylie - Oh my goodness - hopefully we get to see you on Fri
Tammie - it took me back seeing your pregnancy ticker!! - sounds like you're doing great!
Melinda - your poor dad!!
JenRen - the nails sound nice - I'm thinking maybe a pedicure next week for me!
Jay-em-cee - loved your pics!
mumof7 - loved the shots of yoghurt on Destinees face - hehe
KimV - Penny's outfit is gorgeous! It's so hard when most of their outfits are gorgeous and they go through them so fast.
Karen - Laura is loving that biscuit!!! - we're off to the solids talk today so Hamish might be starting very soon.
Best things bought - two prams - one for the car - McLaren stroller and big one at home for walking. I would reccomend that to anyone!
Father's Day - I have a brilliant plan for Dh's pressie - well I think it is!!!! I'm going to put some of Hamish's hand prints on paper with paint - add a couple of photos and Happy Fathers Day then take a digital photo of it and take it down to Harvey Norman to make it into a mousepad. May even go the whole way and do the photo on a mug too for DH to use at work.
Right I think that's about all from me.
Looking forward to the Perth meet on Fri!!
Posted 23 August 2006 - 11:11 AM
Helen - Great Fathers Day pressie idea! I wanted to do something like that as well but had forgotten that Harvey Norman did those things. Might have to go down there and have a look. See you Friday!!
Posted 23 August 2006 - 11:12 AM
Well, I'm still trying to catch up....I think when I left we were at around thread 89...and now we're on 104 I'm up to 95 so I think I'll just skim the rest and get back online properly tomorrow.
In the meantime, here are some pics from the August Sydney meet. I've put thumbnails so as not to take up too much room, so just click to enlarge!
Suzy & Will
Kalen & I with Catherine & Amelia
Polly & Jen
Suzy & Christy
Miss A & Mr K

Helen- Thanks for the happy 6 month wishes. YAY on hamish sleeping well last night Kayla did the opposite LOL. I am going to do the same for DH and put a photo of Kayla on a mug for him Yes I agree with the prams. We have a bertini, but have now bought a valco stroller for when I am alone. The Bertinti is now used if we go out walking or to parks etc, and I use the stroller in shopping centres. Works out great
Alli- Thanks for the pics

Good afternoon from Zombie Land. Charlotte is sick and I was up every hour with her during the night. She has a nasty cough and is breathing very rapidly so taking her to the DR's this arvo. Was up twice with Emma overnight and once with Jacob wetting the bed at 3am. So needless to say I feel very .
Sara and Mel - We are most likely heading up to Qld between 18th and 26th September. We are still deciding where to stay. Have you been to Coloundra before? What is it like? Would love to catch up if we can.
Polly - I have put you in the diary. Looking forward to meeting you.
Got to go and deal with Charlotte. Will BBL if I can.

my sister just told me she was going to sell her wiggles tickets on ebay - but only for face value plus postage. So, I thought, if she doesn't want to make a profit ayway she might as well sell them to nice people! Sydney Ent Cent 16th dec 1pm 2 tickets ( under 12m dont need a ticket). PM me if interested otherwise she'll ebay them in a day or so. Also, if anyone sees or contacts Christy could you let her know, dunno if Jem is into wiggles but she's the right age and the right city so maybe?
I'm at home todayhaving cancelled all plans to let Sarah have all her day sleeps for a change. We've been so busy lately she's been mostly fitting in with us and I felt bad. Over the weekend we had a 30th and a 40th and also coffee for another friends b'day. She slept a little and was really good - but it wasn't the same as being at home in her own bed with her mobile and music etc.
Anyway, now she'd down again I shoul ddo some more study - assignment time is looming!! I always find it worse than exam time.

Lisa - yes,its in sydney. I just added that to the original post now
Posted 23 August 2006 - 02:23 PM
Lisa - yes DH is back thank goodness. Although we are both tired it will be good to have his help tonight getting the kids into bed. Good luck for the move tomorrow.
Karen - I can't belive that Emma will be 7 months in a few days time. It is going too fast. But like you I am really enjoying Emma at the moment. So happy and chatty.
Nadine - I am so glad that Kayla is OK.
Oh man I can't remember anything else.
Posted 23 August 2006 - 03:12 PM
Good Arvo Everyone
KylieBubsy – Last night I dreamt that you did another test and it was a BFP. Hopefully if it isn’t a BFP that you’ll be able to get it all sorted.
Georgina – John says that he now likes you even more after your ‘Go Tigers’ comment. Yep he follows Richmond. When it’s an Eagles vs Tigers game there are a lot of arguments in our house. But too bad. Tiahni was born in WA and will follow Eagles. Although I’m happy as long as it is any team except: Dockers, Carlton or Essendon
Karen – Looks like Laura enjoyed her milk arrowroot.
HAPPY 6 MONTHS KAYLA AND ELLAH FOR YESTERDAY AND HAPPY 7 MONTHS TO LAURA
KylieBB – Hello J GO EAGLES J J J Hope the kids are giving you an easier time. Tiahni has those won’t have her food days too. She soon gets over it. If Abbi is sleepy etc constantly then maybe take her to the Doc. If she is energetic and happy should be OK.
Jeanelle – Don’t worry about not ‘making’ something. We are all busy mum’s and don’t have a lot of time as it is. We all understand. I’m cheating myself. I make up a heap of cheese balls and freeze them for use whenever. So all I have to do is take one out the freezer and cut up some carrot and celery. Oops secret is out
Helen – Wow. Great ideas for Fathers Day. Where do you get the Mugs done?
Petrol – Petrol is just under $1.30 here. Will probably go up soon.
Best Baby Item – Jitter buggy car. Keeps her entertained for ages and I’d have paid $1,000 for it if I had to. And also the portacot which is currently being used as a play pen.
Worst Baby Item – I don’t think we have one, except for the tiny wraps we were given, although they are very useful as dusting rags.
Us – Just the usual. Tiahni is crawling kind of. She keeps flopping herself down and then picks herself up again. Work still sucks and DH is doing a great job at home. We had the termite inspection yesterday for the house and apparently all is OK. 17 more working days to go minus Friday *cough* *cough* hahahaha
Posted 23 August 2006 - 03:56 PM
Went to see the echn and Lil is only 6 kgs! I have no concerns whatsoever cause she is healthy and definetely happy but I guess the nurse has to give suggestions...I hadnt seen her before..and found her a bit annoying..it was almost like she was trying to trip me up by askin questions over n over anyway she told me I have to come back in 3 weeks to check her weight again. Really hope I dont get her again.
Katie- I would snap up those tix but yay my Sis scored 6 tickets for the Monday one. I am not taking Lil cause I think she is too young and I will prolly need to keep Char from running on stage
Best Baby item: Grobags! I have stocked up the 6-18mths size aswell in 2.5 and 1.0 togs & a Shape O although Lil just shakes it and makes big racket.
Worst: Cant think of any atm.
Georgina- Sorry to hear about your sleepless night..hope things are peaceful tonight I cant complain cause after I put Lil down for sleep at about 10:30pm I was so tired and I didnt wake up till 7 am when she woke up!
Yay we dont owe any tax and even getting a little bit back!
Now trying to figure out a healthy take away we can have tonight to celebrate and to give my poor self a night off from the kitchen
Lils's dress came for the Christening!!!!!! It has the cutest matching bonnet..hope its a warm day..or she will be a chilly bub..its short sleeved. Just need to hunt down plain white shoes and a little hankie ..from memory i think Charlotte needed one..
Posted 23 August 2006 - 04:02 PM
I thought i would do a quick post while i'm here at mums, RObin is watching playschool and the other two are sleeping.
favourite item - gee i dont know... hmmm... i have to say that i love my valco runabout. god knows how many kilos i've shed since i bought that with the toddler seat for speedy walks around the parks, blocks, shops... even know i have the "skate board" on the back so i can walk fast with three kids. Sure it's a pain going through checkouts, but it's so easy to steer and all that so i think it's fantastic.
worst item - tiny wraps!! kind of useless i think.
I just wanted to say thanks for the idea of photos on the mug.. i might see if i still have time cause i think thats a great idea for DH at work. We already have some dvds for him, but i think the mug would be kinda cool!
nadine - i'm glad to hear the news that theres nothing nasty there with Kayla.
Happy 6months for Penny today!! can't believe it! She had her needles today too, and was a bit cranky for a few minutes but other than being tired from a busy morning she;s been good. i remember with the other two we got them like a little something at 6months. a rattle or something. i might nick out in a tick see if i can find something for her... she seems to like sticking the wooden spoons in her gob at the moment, so maybe something along those lines... haha
ummm.. can;t remember what else i wanted to say... leave it for another time i guess. better go, cause i had put the kettle on and it's half and hour later now i think bye for now!
Posted 23 August 2006 - 05:25 PM
Just waiting for DH to get home as I have to take Charlotte to the hospital to get her chest looked at. The Doc wasn't happy with the sound of it and how rapidly she was breathing so wants her checked by a Pead. Will let you know how we go.

HAPPY 7 MONTHS TO PRINCESS LAURA
HAPPY 6 MONTHS TO PRINCESS PENNY
Kylie: Congrats on Gold this thread. Yea sometimes I'm on invisible, if I'm only popping on for a little while, sometimes I'm online if ive gotta do bookwork, etc. Hope to see you on soon.
Nadine: Awww. Kick up the butt chook! LOL
Helen: Yay! On Hamish sleeping better for you, I get those 'bursts' of energy too, when D's had a good sleep. WOW! Great idea sounds beautiful for your DH, I'm sure he will love it. Take a pic after you have finished and post them for us to see.
Karen: Gorgeous pics of Laura looks like she's really enjoying her bicky. Happy 7 months to Laura.
Alli: Great pics, glad to see you back. I was offline for about 2 weeks I think, and missed 8 threads!! We are very chatty, it has to be a pop in every day thing so you don't miss out. LOL
Jen: You must be 1 talented woman!. Can't wait to see a pic.
Georgina: Hope Charlotte gets better soon, it's horrible when kids are sick, let us know how you go please. Where in earth did u get the nickname 'Quack' PMSL
ETA: lol just saw your thing above your name, lol. Preggo brain still here, or has returned..
Chantelle: I have been a TIGERS supporter all my life too, looks like me and DH will get along well with the footy My 11yo Brittany follows TIGERS religiously also, watching every televised game. My 2 eldest boys did barrock for Richmond until they chose to barrock for Essendon (what ever possessed them to do that I do not know..lol)
DH not a footy supporter, chose to barrock for Brisbane Lions as his home town was Queensland (Brisbane). So when Richmond and Brisbane played a few weeks ago on t.v, he was like 'oh Brisbanes gonna kick your butt!' I said 'yea right, we'll see' and ½ way into the game 80 points ahead DH told me to switch channels. LOL. SORE LOSER
KimV: Gorgeous pics of Penny. Hope Penny isn't too unsettled with her needles ((hugs)) for her. Happy 6months Penny.
Ang: Good to hear from you, hope you are all well. Swan Lake? Wow, what a treat for your 10yo, hope you have a fantastic time.
Laurolly: Goodluck with the uni assignment. Good luck with selling your house,ummm WANDEROO is in Adelaide, maybe she can buy your house, we seem to be doing 'swapsies' here.
Karen, Lisa, Chantelle, thanks for your comments on the fuel prices.. I think it's getting a bit rediculas, we will have to walk everywhere soon. Will they put the prices up on shoes then?????
Have a great night ladies, hope you keep well.

Ooh, George , that sounds yucky. Hope she's OK. Good luck.
Nadine - great to hear you got the all-clear for Kayla. What a relief. i should be OK for a meet either day, assuming no-one's sick! Feel free to make an executive decision and put up an official Sydney Meet notice!!! I imagine you haven't heard much from everyone as Mon and Christy are out of action these days, Suzy'll be busy sorting out a move, it's too far for Ana and Catherine's probably trying to catch up on sleep!!!
Claire - do you think you can get to the meet? It'd be great to meet you . Hope the studying's going OK.
Ang - hope Swan Lake's good and that DD enjoys it.
Ana - when's the christening?
HAPPY 6 MONTHS to Kayla, Penny and Ellah.
HAPPY 7 MONTHS to Laura, Annabel, Lola, Ivy and Emma!
All from me for now - lotsa love
Posted 23 August 2006 - 06:00 PM
Well have been busy - am doing a few extra work shifts to cover holidays so am working a 'huge' 3.5 days a week for next 2 wks. My little Maxi has decided he now prefers the bottle over the boob after refusing the bottle for ages, so am having to coerce him into breastfeeding Oh well, he's fine when he's sleepy but is preferring the bottle when alert and awake.. will keep persisting. Can't win em all I guess.
Happy 6 mths to Penny and happy 7 mths to all our other beautiful girls.
George - Hope Charlotte is OK, poor little thing. Caloundra is lovely, although I'm more of a 'South Coast' girl. You, me and Melly will have to put our heads together to figure out a meet. Would be happy to have it at my place or may be able to talk DH into going to Caloundra.
Kim - Hope you are settling into yr new place and have everything unpacked.
Wow Ang - can't believe you have a 10 yr old!
Oh gotta go, kids are feral and dh losing his cool. BBL Sara x
Posted 23 August 2006 - 06:16 PM
Harvey Norman do the mugs as well - other ideas there too, just can't think what they are. Calenders and things I think.
Posted 23 August 2006 - 06:46 PM
Forgot to say re PETROL - I don't know how it works elsewhere, but in Sydney the lowest price is always on a Tuesday and then they put it up again by 10c-15c a litre on a Wednesday (some places Tues pm, others Wed am). So our local goes from 129/l on a Tuesday night to 145/l by Wed lunchtime. Then over the week it slowly whittles down again by Tuesday pm.
Strange but true - and well worth remembering if you need petrol!!!
Have often thought the mousepad/mug idea a good one - been meaning to do it for my Dad for years! Maybe one day I will actually do it!
Sarz - what a pain with the bottle vs breast. i had that problem with Ellie - took me 6 weeks to get her to take the bottle but once we had she had fully weaned by 5 months . Just point blank refused the boob.
ETA - sorry, Sara - just re-read that - sounds awful! Need to point out we were giving her two bottles a day by the time she weaned so not surprising with hindsight. It's amazing how little I actually knew about BF etc despite her being my second bub - the same thing had happened with James - I am SO much better informed this time around.

Claire - I think we had discussed Wahroonga Park for the next one but I know Ana needs it over her way because she's on public transport and keeps missing them, so October will probably be Frenchs Forest/Dee Why area.
September - Sept 7 or Aug 31 - Castle Hill RSL - Nadine to confirm.
September - 1 or 8 - night out at The Oaks. Suzy to say when!
October - Northern Beaches somewhere - Jen and Ana to suggest when/where?
November - Wahroonga Park
Jeanelle - wow, that's huge! How are you managing with three kids AND renovations?!!!
