Rach you have lost weight so fast, and have such a great metabolism that I think you could eat 20 cookies and it wouldnt matter, you are entitled to a little breakdown every now and then, and if eating choccie or cookies gets you through for now then thats ok! Hope you are feeling happier soon! (and anyway you did type that they were *healthy* ones )
Emma, freaky! I was just thinking of you today and that you were MIA and was going to PM you, and then...here you are!!
Glad you are still around! Poor Amelie, and wow on the 2 teeth, Reeve's are slowly coming,his bottom gum is getting bigger and fatter, so they are getting there!
Okay I have to get ready for tomorrow and do some ironing <_< as I have to get all 4 kids ready, 2 off to school and then leave straight away to get there in time, DH is coming too I think but dont worry girls I am sending him off to wander around Bunnings and d*ck Smith (he loves electronics) so he wont annoy us
Lara of course we will try for a meet-up when you are down here!
Okay Im going! (This must be a record amount of posts in one day for me!)

Ultra quick while I remember:
Mel: I don't know how I function either. Alyssa must have passed it onto me, as before I was pg, I would last the day without getting at least a full 8 hours straight!
Susie: There is a disposable insert called bebes ultra nappy mates.
I picked mine up at woolies, but I have found them online:
They worked brilliantly when DD leaked through her nappies.
Ok got a wide awake child needing some attention.

Sick/bruised/rashy/vomity babies: Get Well Soon!!
Your poor mummies need a break!
And before I forget, who's in Brisbane? (You'd think I'd know by now but my brain just doesn't seem to work anymore!) Want to meet up next month? Friday 27th April any good for anyone?
Posted 20 March 2007 - 07:26 PM
Roni - hehe, you are so sweet.
Schell - good luck getting Alyssa to sleep
Rach - you can have a break down anytime you want to. You totally deserve a medal. Eat as many chocolate biscuits as you like. If DH was here I would come over and bring over the triple chocolate biscuits from PG.
Nicole - poor Tayla. She is one lucky girl. It could have been heaps worse.
Posted 20 March 2007 - 07:36 PM
Thanks Schell, I might give them a go. Esp. at night time when he sleeps the longest. Might see if our Safeway has them . I think its your Woolies equiv.

Susie - have you tried a bigger size in Huggies? You probably have but I found that with Zoe I buy the size bigger than what she really needs and then she's not wet through in the morning. Mind you she's not as bad as Jack sounds we haven't done 4 am nappy changes for a very long time.
Rach - look on the bright side, they could have been BAD chocolate chip cookies. If it was me I would have probably eaten 10 blocks of chocolate. If it makes you feel any better I usually cry if Zoe spews on me. I don't mean a little spill spew, but if it's a power chuck I cry (and my DH is home imagine how I'd react if he wasn't). It frightens me most times I think. Anyway tomorrow is a new day and as you say you can just start again then. Chin up you are doing a fab job.

Mell: I did try a bigger size (also have 4 boxes bought on special he needs to grow into-lol). Gone back to the 10-15kg.
He can wet thru nappies during the day too and I change him fairly often to keep him fresh and comfy anyway. Its here and there, not every night. I just meant when he does it at an odd hour, mummy gets grumpy cos DH wouldnt hear an elephant if it drove a V8 thru the bedroom.Whereas I have slept with one ear switched on ever since he was born.Why is that?Must be mummy instinct
I just thought an extra insert might be the go to make him last thru the night. Maybe cos he turns over a fair bit, the nappy seems to scrunch down, sometimes creating a gap so it cant handle an extra wee
Sometimes they are as heavy as my handbag -lol
Rach: Jack had an Excorcist like spew once a few months ago that scared the life out of me. We had just introduced chicken, probably a bit too much.Anyway, I think more come out then went in.And boy did it come out.
Poor thing, straight to the bath to hose him down.Thought his head was going to spin. He didnt seem to phased though. he didnt have chicken for another couple of months cos we were to scared to give it to him.He stayed vegetarian a bit longer.
MMmmmm...choc chip cookies. Though I like the unhealthy ones.
How come everything good is bad for you? With the exception of BDing -
Posted 20 March 2007 - 08:24 PM
Susie - LOL at BDing. I honestly forget what its all about. When DF gets back i will have to learn all over again. I think i'm a born again virgin. Here is a link to my recipe girls for the choc chip biccies. They are honest to god divine.
Choc chip cookies
Gotta have a shower and get to bed.

Leah: I use Aldis on him too. I think he's just a big wetter some of the time. The reason I dont out a bigger nappy on him is that they are gappy around the legs so I'm guessing an escape for #1 and #2 -lol. Maybe some rubber fishing waders -haha. Wonder if they have them in size 0-1.
Rach: that recipe sounds quick and easy. might give it a shot but not tell DH they are lite. he wouldnt know anyway, he'll gulp them down while they are warm.
Just caught up on Desperate Housewives that I taped from Monday. The shooting episode.Was pretty good.Still have Brothers and Sisters to watch but will leave that for 2moro.Must attn span only lasts an hour at most now since Jack.
I usually catch up when he goes to bed.
Okay, off to bed for me to.
Nite all (take 2)
Posted 21 March 2007 - 05:42 AM
2 messages in a row. You lot are gonna accuse me of not sleeping again.
Ahhh, jinxed myself. he woke at 4am. not wet thru, so thats something. Thankyou Aldi-lol.
Up again at 6.30am, he must have set his internal alarm cos Bear in the big Blue House is on.
Posted 21 March 2007 - 06:23 AM
OMG Guess who slept from 7.30pm-7.00am. ISABEL!!!!!
I of course woke about 4 times just hearing her change breathing etc. She is sitting here chatting to me and is happy - so hopefully she is all better.
I feel a bit sick this morning so hope its the choc chip biscuits making me feel this way and not the gastro bug. I am making myself eat breakfast as we are off to the gym in 1 1/2 hours.
Susie - We use the Aldi nappies and we rarely have issues with them which is good. Now i use them at night time and try to put the kids in cloth of a day time. I have tried so many other nappies - babylove, snugglers etc and now i only use huggies when on special or Aldi.
Okey better go -

Susie - I think you keep similiar hours to me. It is just that I don't post when I am still awake at night and early in the morning. But I do tend to eat my breakfast in front of eb.
Rach - woohoo on Izzy sleeping through. That is great. Now she just needs to keep doing it. Apparently I woke up 4 times last night. I don't remember it but apparently I did. You might be feeling sick because you got too much sleep.
Leah - what happened to you last night? You suddenly disappeared. I wanted to let you know that I put Audrey is those little blue dungarees that both the girls have yesterday. I was surprised she still fit in them. But she does. Don't you just love all the stuff in the new PP catalogue.
Posted 21 March 2007 - 07:33 AM
WEll no gym for us today. Keenan just again. So that was lovely!
Posted 21 March 2007 - 08:07 AM
Leah - I think the PP blue overalls are 3-6 months. Says alot about how small Audrey is. I am going to go and get her weighed next week for her monthly weigh in and see is she has grown. My mum bought Audrey those new red overalls in the PP catalogue. All that red stuff is just gorgeous.
Posted 21 March 2007 - 08:27 AM

Posted 21 March 2007 - 09:13 AM
Lisa - just put Jess to work. I am sure she will be able to help. I have only done with with one child. I think those of you with more are brave.
Off to swimming in two secs. I am taking my dad with us. He really wants to see Audrey swimming. It is so sweet.

Gorgeous sig Nat! Hope your family is feeling better.

Lara: Have fun at swimming with a nutty baby!
