Morning Foxy Ladies tongue.gif

ERIN> Awsome pics, thanks so much for sharing! They all look very proud with Cooper! I was the same as Rhiannon, thought Mick scrubbed up alright, then saw his lusty brother...hello sunshine! wub.gif But yeah, the cousin thing is rather bizzare!!!

STEPH> Love your pics too!! Especially the first one, such a pretty shot, and how cool is that pool table?!

Who amongst us is organised? I need help! I'm so unorganised! My house is never clean and if it s clean it only stays like that for a few hours. We never know what we're having for dinner until 10 mins before 6pm, the spare room (MY hobbie room) is trashed and I can't find anything, and basically I feel really frazzled cos nothing's in order wacko.gif Are there any good websites with useful organisation tips??

Better go get Tayla out of her cot, she woke up about 20 mins ago but hasn't cried yet, just making little noises so I left her in there to have a coffee and come in here ph34r.gif I figure that she's not too upset in her room ATM so may as well have a quick coffee!! Does anyone else do that? Or am I mean?

Morning gals...  biggrin.gif  tongue.gif

Jack woke up last night screaming the house down around 2am  cry1.gif  I haven't heard him cry like that for ages.. it sounded so painful...  sad.gif  I ended up giving him neurofen and bonjella thinking it must have been his teeth, coz he's also had a shocking nappy rash which he never really gets, the last few days, and voila... this morning, there's a little tiny tiny tooth just popped out next to his other one... OMG, two teeth now lol... he's slowly catching up hehe  tongue.gif

Steph - love the pics... Miky is growing up so quickly... I love love the pic of her sitting on the grass near the harbour/lake? its lovely... yeah, I am really excited bout Jack turning 1 too, but there's that bit of me that doesn't want to let go of him being a 'baby' lol...  laughing2.gif

Jules - bugger bout that sewing machine huh...wonder if they can do something for ya... seeing as it was recalled and all  biggrin.gif

Erin - you crack me up girl  laughing2.gif  Love the piccy's.. bet Mick's family just adored her to bits.. his brother sure was a bit of alright... definately a BIG shame bout the fancying the cousin bit.. hmmmmm  wacko.gif

Kristi - I couldn't get your links to work either... sad.gif but I could see the pics lol... yay for V walking... woo hoo... how are you going?

Jeannie - yay for Lola having a little sleepin for ya... it's bloody cold up here too.. it's only sposed to get to 18 degrees in Newie today... brrrr.... very chilly... I love it though.. bring on winter!

Jean - love your new sigs... Izzy looks adorable!

Sarah - I'm the same as you, I felt so much better once I'd hit the three month part of being pregnant! Wow an Australia Day baby...so happy for ya!  biggrin.gif

Anni - pmsl you are not mean, I do it alot too, especially on my days off when I want a bit of peace in the mornings hehe... can't help ya on the organisation front I'm sorry, but if I can find any good websites, I'll post em...

Anni - Skipper has her own website called 'Domestic Guru' and she is an Adelaide person too... I think she even goes to peoples houses to help them sort everything out and get into a routine? Will find the website for you...


Here you go original.gif I look around on there sometimes, she has some good tips.

Steph - I meant to say yesterday I love the photos of Miky! Especially the one of her with icing on her fingers wink.gif

Chels - hope you are not TOO tired today!

I have so... much to do today so really shouldn't be on here  dev (6).gif

I think Cooper has changed his day time nap routine, he doesn't seem to want a nap until later but then he is over tired  wacko.gif

Erin Great photos!  How cute is the one of Cooper in the tree!!  PMSL at your comment on Mick's brother, but yes I agree what a honey  wub.gif  ph34r.gif

BBL Cooper getting really cranky  sad.gif

Anni: Definitely not mean. I leave Chloe in her cot for a while in the morning if sheís just making sounds/talking to herself. I too need someone to come and organise my house. The lounge/dining areas a fine. Itís the spare/junk room and the kitchen that are a nightmare.

Erin: Great photos. Well Mick & his brother both scrub up okay but the cousin things is weird

Steph: Great photos. Mikayla is a cutie.

Kristi: Good on Vienna. She is so cute and looks so proud of herself.

Jules: Bugger about the sewing machine. I hope you get it sorted out

QOTD: Has anyone elses bubs become a cling-on again. I thought Chloe was over that phase but since her birthday I canít do anything without her on my hip. Iím at work today and usually when I drop her off at mum & dadís I donít get a second look but todays she screamed the house down. It broke my heart to drive away with her still upset.

Lauren - had a shocker of a day late last week... I was at home with him and he was driving me insane.. he was wanting to be picked up and whingy for ages... I haven't really had many days like that, but that day, he was a real clingon.. he wouldn't even go to DH when he got home, and I even had to feed him his bottle like a little baby  laughing2.gif  he was such a sook... lol...

#17 ***jules***

Posted 22 May 2007 - 11:19 AM

Morning girls

Lauren - I'm hearin ya!!  Ella hardly ever sits and plays by herself anymore - she wants to be attached to me all the time!  If DH is home with her and I am not here she will happily play by herself though.  wacko.gif

Chels - poor Jack with his teeth! Hope he is better for you tonight.

Anni - I am neat but definitely not organised.  You sound a lot like me.  Although i have been trying to think about dinner in the mornings now.

Us - off to mums for lunch today with a girl she used to work with and her little 3 month old.  Can't wait to see her.  Cluckiness is starting to set in here!

Jules - Spewing about the sewing machine, glad you didn't get hurt using it, that would be so bad.

Erin - Thanks for the pics, Mick did a good job don't you think. He looks really proud of Cooper.

Anni - I don't think I'm unorganised, i esp like to get dinner organised early, like in the slow cooker, otherwise the evenings can be a nightmare. I feel like if dinner is cooked, all is good. I hate that I seem to tidy and clean all day and by the end of the day it looks like I've done nothing.

Jean - Hmmmm I like that sig better than the first one, both beautiful.

Chels - Yay for another tooth, pity they have to go through so much to get one little tooth.

Lauren - Joey has been a super cling on lately too! Lucky she clings on to my mum as well otherwise I don't what I'd do with her when I go to work!  ohmy.gif She cries as soon as I start walking towards the door or get up or something even if DH is sitting right next to her.  wacko.gif

#20 chloeandmaddison

Posted 22 May 2007 - 11:42 AM

Jackie: That's exactly what Chloe was doing last night. She was sitting on Scott's lap and I was sitting next to them. I went to get a drink and Chloe screamed the house down. She's only go to Scott if I was standing/sitting right next to him.
It was starting to do my head in.

hi everyone cool.gif

Erin: great pics, looks like Cooper had a great time original.gif yes, micks brother is a hottie!! hehe

chels: sorry to hear bout your horror night sad.gif glad jacks tooth is thru now tho...

jules: oh how annoying bout the sewing machine! hope they can sort something out for u!

britt: im just like you, i am super organised when it comes to dinner. i usually have dinner sorted by lunch, i feel i can relax once thats organised. dinner time here is a mad time, trying to get both boys fed and a DH, so the more organised i am the better! i love the slow cooker, makes things so easy huh.

us:DH is home today since he worked all weekend, and jacobs at daycare. we r having a big cleaning/packing day, we move in 9 days! yay! feels good to throw out heaps of junk too, DH is on his 2nd run to the tip. My job today is to wipe over all the blinds  blink.gif i cant get motivated to start tho...

aarrggghh im drowning...... in a pile of washing...... wacko.gif

it feels like all i ever do is wash clothes, hang them out, fold them, put them away, wash them, hang them out, fold them, put them away.... will the vicious cycle ever end?????? cry1.gif

Anni...lol.. as you can see I am so not organised either. i feel like i just wanna grab everything in my house, throw it out and then start fresh. That way i dont have to try and sort through all this sh*t...

Afternoon ladies

Anyone tried the new low calorie chocolate bar called FLING omg its so lush.

Chels-i love Coupling, its a hoot. The funniest episode i ever saw was the one where Susan(think it was her) was in labour. I nearly wet myself laughing. Make sure you post a pic of the rocking horse once its finished. DH loves picking up stuff from the side of the road. He is always coming home with stuff.
Kristi-love the footage of Vienna, i could only get one of them to play but i loved the way she was waving with both hands as she walked. wub.gif
Jean-great new sigs, love todays one.
Kristie-yay for Ella graduating at swimming, im so slack i never even took Holly to swimming lessons, i took Jake when he was 6 months and might start him up again after his 3rd birthday.
Steph-great pics, the pool table is great.
Lauren-i think Holly will be a cling on forever, she has been going at it since 6 months and i dont see a light at the end of the tunnel. I often cook dinner with her hanging off my thigh like a koala.
Erin-great pics, mmm Uncle Jason. He looks slightly like a thinner version of Toby out of Human Nature. So had Cooper met any of Micks family before or was this the first time?
Jules-bugger bout the sewing machine.
Anni-Im a pretty organised person, a place for everything and everything in its place......much to DH's aggravation, im so anal about it, drives him crazy. I cant have things in the sink or draining rack, it has to be washed and dried as soon as its used or put straight in the dishwasher, i hate cupboard doors being left open etc. Think i have OCD. My mum is like it so guess i just learnt from the master. I have a meal plan for the fortnight so as we are finishing dinner of an evening i am already getting meat out the freezer for tomorrow nights meal and i get all the vegies cut up and sitting in the pots at 3.30pm every arvo so all i have to do is switch it on before dH gets home............HMM think i need to seek  help about this roll2.gif

Me-took Jake to get a haircut today as we are getting a family portrait photo taken on Saturday. Holly had some good whammies in the pram at the shops. Had lunch at mums.

Holly has started doing the cutest thing,i was watching her with her new dolls pram yesterday arvo and she was  wheeling it around with 2 dolls in it then she would stop and pick up the toy dolls bottle and put it in the dolls mouth and make little sucking noises. I nearly wet myself laughing then had a cry cuz she is definitely a big girl now. A little mummy. wub.gif  wub.gif

RACH> Oh gosh that's so adorable how Holly nurses her dolls! But I know what you mean, it is a sign that they're no longer little babies. When Tayla picks up her teddies and kisses them on the face, and makes kissing noises I am reminded that she isn't a little new born anymore! I wish I was organised as you are!

I was going to write more personals but I think Tayla has just woken up. Im meeting an EB-er for coffee in a minute, looking forward to it, she's really nice and is 3 months pregnant original.gif

Oh just quickly, talking about our babies growing up. Today Tayla found my handbag. She picked it up and put it over her shoulder and wore it like I do ohmy.gif OMG!!! It was absolutley adorable, but it amazed me how much little one's pick up, I have never shown her what to do with it, she must have watched me with interest and copied what I do wub.gif


#25 TheyCallMeRach

Posted 22 May 2007 - 02:46 PM

Anni-PMSL that is so cute about Tayla and the handbag, i can just picture her with a handbag. wub.gif
