Sorry Annabel - we posted at the same time  biggrin.gif

Went to post and the bl**dy thread got locked  wacko.gif

Tam ~ Are you anywhere near Lakeside Pakenham?  My SIL used to live in Pakenham, but has built a house and moved further out.  I think she's moved to Longwarry.  Cool that I'll be 15 mins from you.  When we move, I'll be hounding you for a coffee  tongue.gif

Danni ~ Simonds hey!  Thanks for that, will keep that in mind.  Do you reckon you'll ever build again?

Has anyone heard how Sharon is doing??

Thanks guys for the congrats on the land!  It's a big step for us as far as getting our independence is concerned.  I'm looking forward to cutting the umbilical cord that joins Robert to his mum!  We told his family last night that we had locked in the land and his mum went quiet.  I know he's her baby boy, but it's time for him to spread his wings and fly!!

Nice to see that Vic has got some cool weather today.  Now all we need is more rain and we'll be set.

Got a stack of housework to do today, so I better get cracking.

Girls I am so glad to see my little family has such an impact on you all.  Now I seem to have a sore throat and headache..  voice croaky and strained..  SORRY sad.gif  sad.gif

Danni  Please don't compare Paige!! and do not get upset  She will do everything at her own pace.  I met my old FDC mum in the shopping centre and she had her kids with her and one little girl only started walking at 19 months....  all kids are different..you have more time before the high water mark changes( the area they can reach) biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif

my dad's in hospital again sad.gif   he was very tired and they think he has a slow leak somewhere in his body, they have given him extra blood and are looking for the leak..  they are going to review all his medication.  So we will see.

I know you have heard it before but you cant compare. It is silly to be upset about that as she is doing so well for her age.

Kitchen people have been
I will be without a kitchen for a week and it should happen in 4 weeks or so.

I have a question.
How many of you will be getting the Chicken Pox needle for their babies?

OH NO re your dad.

#15 ~Danni~

Posted 24 January 2007 - 02:21 PM

Cathy & Syl~ Thanks for making me snap out of it! Yes she is doing brilliantly but you know me, I want the best for her blush.gif

Chicken Pox needle~ Yes Paige will be getting that one! Ive seen how nasty chicken pox can be ( I was 25 when I got it) but it can be very bad so why not?

#16 Tam76

Posted 24 January 2007 - 02:24 PM

Danni, Please don't compare Paige.  She is doing so well.  I know I would rather Nic not be walking some of the time  wacko.gif   It isn't neccesarily because she has DS that she isn't walking yet, I too know of a little boy that didn't walk till he was 19 months.  If you want to chat, grab me on msn, I will be here for a while.  It is perfectly natural to be upset and please feel free to "dump" on us, to use your words.

Danni - Jacynda didnt walk until 15 months, and Isabel learnt faster off her. Please dont compare her, she will do it in her own time. Then you will know yourself!! wink.gif

Syl - How are you going to go without a kitchen for a week??

Chicken Pox Needle - I am getting it for belle, is there a negative to it?

Cathy - Sending well wishes for your dad.

Chicken pox yes(at 2) - Grace had the needle  Neighbours little girl was in intensive care with chicken pox before she was 2, she is now 3 and the scars on her chest are still very very noticeable..

Oh Danni,

I know its hard and I know EXACTLY how you are feeling!!! Do you know when she should be reaching milestones with DS? She isn't that far behind babe and she is doing really well. She is only 15 months old and yes some babies do not walk until well after 18 months. Lachlan never walked until 17 months. Emma was 16 months.

She will get there babe, I know of some babies born around the same time as lach (yes premmie) who stilla ren't walking either. they will do it in there own time, and you won't know what hit you when she starts.

Keep your chin up and vent all you like happy.gif

CP needle- I'm not sure if Lach gets it. I think he gets it free actually so will ask when he has his 12 month ones (yes I still haven't done it).

Cathy- Sorry to hear about your dad hun. hugs to you xx

Danni- That chart Syl has got is good, it says that the average age for walking is 24 months, so if she is standing and cruisng furniture (well sort of) then thats great!!!!!

It is at 18 months and they have to have it to qualify for the immunuisation payment.

#22 mel83

Posted 24 January 2007 - 02:45 PM

Is it free now?

Danni - Everyone has already said exactly what i was thinking. Please try not to be so down about these things, it's important to appreciate every day with your bubba, what she is or isn't doing is so not important in the scheme of things.
The info Syl posted that she found online was interesting too (and hopefully of some reassurance), do you have the link Syl?

Cathy - sorry to hear about your Dad, I hope they can figure out what's happening and fix it.

Chicken Pox - I won't be vaccinating against it. There is no evidence that by immunising against it in babies that immunity will continue into adulthood (which like Danni said is the much worse time to have it!), so I will be allowing nature to take it's course. After all, it's only chicken pox....
I've also decided not to immunise myself (I've had blood tests to confirm that I have never had CP), mainly because I think my body has done a good job preventing it so far. As a teen, I even looked after my brother and father while they had CP as Mum thought i had had it as a child, and I still didn't get it.
I'm expecting that I'll be in a minority with this opinion, but I should point out that I am pro vaccination for other *serious* illnesses (even if Claire is a bit late for her needles  Tounge1.gif )

Immunisation Payment - They don't *have* to have the CP needle to qualify for the payment, your doctor can complete a form if you don't want it, and it wont affect your payment.

Just looking at Lachlans immunisation schedule and the varicella isn't a free one, so its not one they have to have. Phew, I will have to check it out though cause he does get some of them free.

#25 jacybelle

mel - Thanks for those emails last night. LMAO laugh.gif

CP - I have never had it but have witnessed kids with it, not something I would like to go through so thats why I am of the opinion that isabel will get it.

Kim - Everyone has a right to immunise or not.
