I thought it was about time I popped my head in and wished a Happy Birthday to all the Birthday Boys and Girls, some very belated I know!

I do try and keep up with your threads ladies but they move to quick for me to reply, so I rely on people like Karen and Deb and Kate and Mel (via MSN) to keep me up to date on all the happenings here!

Brodie is 1 on Saturday and I cant believe how quickly it has flown by this past 12 months, Im sure you are all thinking the same thing. blink.gif  oomg2.gif

Congrats Deb on your fantastic news, although I already knew lol  tongue.gif

I will endeavour to keep up to date in the next few days so I can write a long overdue list of personals.

As you can see from my sig Im almost 17 weeks now, where did that go??  Big scan soon and No not finding out the Sex of bubs! bbluestork.gif ? ppinkstork.gif ?

Ill check in on Sunday arvo again after all the  birthday madness and visitors have gone!  Ill take notes as Im reading the post so no one is forgotten! wink.gif

I'll take that.  It has been a while since I have even been on first page.

Now I have to run back and read the last thread.  It has been a big week.  I have been sick all week. I took Wed of work, went yesterday but only lasted till lunchtime.  I have to go in today.  I have flu like ache everywhere, a cough and snots.  I am keeping  to myself at work so as not to share.  I hate sharing snots at work.

Anyway - I got over the party on Saturday and yesterday I got myself a big 1 year old boy.  OMG!  It blows me away so much every time I look at him and try to remember that new born baby that was plonked on me 1 year ago.  Right now he is crawling around at my feet looking so cute.  I just love this age so much.  He is learning every day.  Now he points to things and looks at me with a curious look on his face, so I tell him what it is.  

I still have not downloaded the party pics, I will get onto that on the weekend.  I also better get my butt into gear and post my special little birthday boy/girl their present.  Luckily I have one of the last babies in our group.  grin.gif

Sorry for no personals - I am going to have to go back to read and catch up.  But for now it is shower time and then off to work.  Have a nice day chatterboxes.   biggrin.gif

Shell - Oh no, you poor thing. sad.gif  I hope you feel better soon, and that no-one else in your house gets sick (there's nothing worse than looking after a sick baby when you're sick too).

I'll be back later for more personals....

A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GEORGIA AND ELLISE ! hhugs.gif   Hope you both have a wonderful day today (you too, mummies).

I'm taking Amelie to the clinic this morning for a weigh-in tongue.gif  DH is guessing 13kg, I'm guessing 12.4kg.  Will report back later today.  She's asleep atm so I will probably have to wake her to go - hate doing that.

Marns - hey there!  Great to hear from you.  Big weekend coming up for you guys original.gif

Tracy - had to giggle at your comment of putting suncream on the girls.  Brrrr, we had polar fleece jackets on this morning when I took Ryan to school.  I have the heater on now and I'm still cold  wink.gif   Enjoy your day with Skye and Willow.

Mel - as long as they're in proportion, that's all that counts smile1.gif  Oh an 18 mth appointment?  cry1.gif I will most likely make Amelie's appt today.  Unbelieveable!

Kaz - hi, the list looks awesome cclap.gif How's little Caitie girl this morning?

Tina, Karla, Shelldar, Kate, Blueynat - hi, will come back later (if Miss Amelie allows) to catch up on your personals/news!

Shell - hope you feel better soon hon.  Take it easy, well as much as you can!

Hi Ladies

Sorry I have been such a slack poster lately....I think I am in the same boat as everyone else in regards to the not so DH, we are having a few problems latley ( as most of us seem to be 2)hopefully we can sort it out soon, although I really don't know how as he doesn't think he is doing anything wrong cry1.gif

I am also having I few issue's with myself and I know that its really silly but I can't help the way I feel. My milk has mostly dried up( with me being SO sick over easter) and I am devasted.....I know that I am really lucky that I made it to 12mths, but I feel terriably gulity and like I have let Connor down, as I feed Bailey until 18mths when he self weened. I really wanted to feed Connor to at least after his operation in June as it was a great comfort to Bailey when he had his op at 16mths.....I just feel sad cry1.gif  Connor is still managing to get a little bit but he gets really frustrated that he has to work so hard, and he bit me ast night and drew blood, I am really hoping I can build my supply back up but time will tell I guess.....sorry for the ME post blush.gif

Connor's party went well, he got some lovely things, toys, books and clothes(all size one, so will have to put them away till next winter) and I had a great time with the NEW baby's that were there, a one week old and a three week old, and both little girls wub.gif very very cute!! cluck cluck

Connor had a great day crawling around, and playing on the swing, slide etc. ANd he LOVED his birthday cake original.gif
Here are some photo's;
on one of his pressie's, a dino rocker....very cute!!
Blowing out the candles

Cake; number 1

Happy 1ST Birthday to the beautiful ELLISE! and the gorgous GEORGIA PEACHES
Connor and Bailey send lots of kisses and hugs, hope your special day is perfect!! and BIG hugs to the Mummy's too on this bitter sweet day,lol

Just a few personals

TinaSo gald that Carter recieved a SS pressies, I love the photo's of him opening it, SOOOO cute!!

I too would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone in this group, you all are a fanastic group of girls and bubs, lol and I really don't know what I would do without my daily fix(its true I DO read everyday, just don't get to replie all the time) So thankyou each and everyone of you wub.gif

Happy birthday for Linda for tomorrow

Ok back for personals. Skye is watching Barney and Willow is asleep. She just crashed, she was so tired after playing outside this morning. I got a bit of a vent.

This woman from Westpac just rang me up saying that I had been selected for a special life and death insurance. She went thru it all and I said no. I know its important but atm we have more important things to use our money on like food and clothes etc. Then the lady saids "Is there a reason why u are saying no". I said we can't afford it then she says. "Why don't u want to leave ur loved ones money when u die".  rant.gif What a horrible thing to say of course I do. I have a good mind to ring westpac up again and complain. Do u think I am over-reacting or did she step over the line??? Ok feel better now  original.gif

mummy2bailey:- I hope u sort things out with ur dh soon. Glad to hear that Conners birthday party went great  biggrin.gif  Cute pics too, he is growing up so fast.

2forSuz:- Hope Amelie does well at her weigh in. Has she had her immunisations yet.??? I am not lookn fward to it for Willow in a couple of weeks. She is going to know what its all about this time cry1.gif  

princesstaya:- Great to hear the Taya is fine original.gif I measure Willow the other day, head, length and weight and is all about the same point on the chart so I presume she is in proportion. 18ths seems so far away doesn't it  ohmy.gif

~~Kaz~~:- Sorry I missed u on messenger yesterday, I was signed in but rushing around the house doing stuff. I see on the list its ur birthday soon. Are u doing anything special???

Marsbars:-WOW Congratulations on ur pregnancy I didn't even know LOL . Hope Brodie has a great birthday. original.gif

~shell~:- Hope u are feeling better. We are having this flu virus up here, everyone is gettn it. sad.gif  We are all pretty healthy in this house atm, I am makin the most of it.  Haydens sounds like he is making good progress.  biggrin.gif

Kate:- I think ur just destine to get that Purple spot most threads LOL. Not long until hubby is home now  ddance.gif  

shelldar, Karla and Bluenut and everyone else a BIG Hiiiiiiii  

I got Willow's birthday party on Sunday, Chris is makn her a cow cake and I will be busy tmorrow food shoppn and gettn things ready for Sunday. So I most probably wont be on here on the weekend. But I just wanted to say.

"Happy Birthday to Brodie"
for Tmorrow.  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  biggrin.gif  ddance.gif  ddance.gif Hope u have a wonderful day Big Boy  babyboy.gif


"Happy Birthday to  Linda" for Tmorrow too. Hope u have a great day   hhugs.gif

Tracy - that was rude and I think you have every right to complain, you listened to what she had to say and said no, she had no right to interrogate you the way she did.

Just wanted to share this pic of Austin, I decided to let him feed himself roll2.gif

#20 Guest_~Karla~_*

Posted 20 April 2007 - 02:10 PM

Just a quickie....  

Tracy - Yes, that was rude of the saleswoman from Westpac.  She should have worded the question better.

Kate - LOL - that's exactly what Alex looked like yesterday when I gave him spag bol for lunch!!

YAY my baby girl is one!!  wub.gif  biggrin.gif

I had a call to go and pick her up from daycare (who are hopeless) because they reckon she has conjuctivitis (sp?) but I had her checked out and there is nothing wrong with her, she probably was just so bloody dirty that her eyes were weepy. They never seem to be able to clean any of the poor kids.

But on the upside now I get to spend the afternoon with my birthday girl  tongue.gif we are having a brilliant time playing with her new musical instruments and her new babydoll that arrived in the post this morning from her SS - thank you soooooooo much it is so cute, as is the G top - I have a very sneaking idea this clever SS made the G and the babydoll dress???  wink.gif will post piccies later.

Thanks for all her birthday wishes.


and case I don't get back on in time....

Happy 1st Birthday to Georgia & Ellise!   Hope you both had a great day today.  Elii sends a big smoochy kiss your way  wub.gif

Quick post, have been out for a Friday lunch and really should be working  ph34r.gif

I will be another year older tomorrow - oh no!!!!  DH asked me what I wanted for my b'day and I just have no idea  tongue.gif   Any suggestions?  My mum asked me the same thing - I swear I always want lots of things but when it comes to my b'day I always forget what they are  laugh.gif

Just quickly, Elii's stats for his 12 mths :

Weight : 9.5kg
Height : 76cm

Okay, back to do some work .....

Sulee - Sorry to hear you are going through a rough patch atm.   hhugs.gif  Hope things improve soon for you.  Love the birthday pics, looks like lots of fun was had.  Connor is such a cutie!

Linda - Get back to work!   tongue.gif I am the same as you, always forgetting what I want, but after my b'day has been and gone, I remember.   huh.gif

Ange - Wow, sounds like a stupid childcare centre.  But, i'm glad that you get to spend the day with your beautiful birthday girl.  Love your new sig! original.gif

Kate - LOL at Austin!  Looks just like Caitie when we let her eat pasta, she never lets us feed her anymore.  Thanks for the chat on msn today, it was great to catch up for a little bit.

Tracy -  rant.gif at that lady from Westpac.  I would have hung up on her after she said that.  I'm going to go and see Pink on my b'day!  Really looking forward to it.   biggrin.gif

Suz - How did Amelie go at her weigh in today?

Marns - Hi chickie!  Happy to see you posting.   grin.gif How did your big shop go the other day?

Well, back to the housework.  Caitie has been a bit grumpy today, not sure what's wrong.  Her 6th tooth is pushing on her gum, so it is most likely that.   sad.gif  Have to go and think about starting dinner too.  Why does this time of the evening come around so quickly?  Is anyone going to watch Big Brother?  I love that show!

Hi girls

Amelie HATED being undressed for her weigh/measure today rant.gif and let us all know about it lol.  Her stats at (almost) 13 months are:
Weight - 11.8kgs
Length - 79cm

My big girl wink.gif

Tracy - it did actually warm up here today.  Only in Tassie can you wear polar fleece to take the kids to school and a t-shirt when you pick them up tongue.gif  Grrr  rant.gif to that Westpac lady - I hate the way they pressure you and play on your emotions.  What a horrible thing to say.  Why can't they just accept no as NO!!! mad.gif

Ange - sounds like Georgia has had a lovely b'day with mummy original.gif

Kate - love that pic, I bet Austin had lots of fun playing with his pasta wink.gif

Linda - HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TOMORROW!!!  I can never think of what I'd like for birthdays/Xmas either.  Have a great day.

Sulee - what a great party you had for Connor, looks like he had a lot of fun.  Hey, that bib was cute  wink.gif So glad you liked it.

Oh gotta go, kids going off  wacko.gif  Arsenic hour....
