Welcome back Bron hhugs.gif, we have been wondering how Coops & Pepper are (you too of course). The kids sound like they have a very special relationship, so cute what Cooper says about Pep. Is Cooper going to school next year or are you holding him back? We're keeping Joel back, so he'll start in 2011, he is probably ready, but socially & emotionally is not. Who know's if we've made the right decision or not. He did an extra year in the 3-4 year old room this year, so will move into the kinder room next year, 3 days a week. Jess is such a girl now, so into pink, fairies and Hi 5 and Joel is obessed with Ben 10 now, no more Thomas or cars  sad.gif

Great to see you in here to Kerry. Maybe now that Bron's back, we misght get a few more. Would be good.

Hope everyone is well!!! waves.gif

Thought it was time i came in and update you all..Well Im doing really well,Im 26 wks now only 14 wks or 98days or less to go now and cant wait although i still have nothing ready..We have 5 outfits for her and thats it slowly paying off the car seat layby which should be off by christmas.Got a midwife appointment on tuesday for my glucose test,last appointment a measured three wks a head and if im measuring ahead again on tuesday she is going to book me in for another scan..Still in lots of pain with my back,legs and hips,Ive been getting lots of braxton hicks lately and its odd because i never got them when i was pregnant with Ashleigh and Samuel..
i cleaned out the toy room to convert it into Samuels room yesterday and he loves it he slept all night which was great because normally im up and down to him at least 2-4 times a night but i didnt hear him cry once last night Although i went to bed last night rolled over and said to DH "cant we go and bring him back in here now" lol..I want my baby boy back...
He is now running everywhere and has 4 top front teeth,2 far back top molars and 3 bottem front teeth and h must have cut another bottom tooth today because i could feel the tip of one when he let me have a feel earlier so that makes 10 teeth..

Umm think that about it..Oh DH has some work finally just doing some cleaning with his brother for some guy its $15 an hour and works about 10-15 hours a wk which is great..

Ok pretty sure thats it..Hope mums and bubs are well..Ill try and come in more often

Bron, Kerry and Tam, great to see you all around. Not real much happening here, Alessia is teething bigtime, getting her eye teeth, she got the bottom ones a few weeks back but the top ones are just about through. Other than that, all good here.

Bron, I also stalk your blog, the kids are so grown up, and you sewing is fantastic BTW

Hi Ladies  waves.gif

BRON!!!!! Im soooooooooo super glad your back bbighug.gif Wow soo much has happened since you last came on and i was dying to know how you and the family were doing and its great to hear that all is well!!! Yay to Coop on his new set of wheels, i can just imagine him zooming around the house and lil Pep chasing after him... keeping you on your toes but you wouldnt want it any other way!!! Seeing your post made my day, im all smiles now  biggrin.gif  

Ellie Thanks for the congrats!

Maryanne how is Alessia doing?? Hope her chest infection didnt last long same with your Laryngitis!! The eye teeth are painful... Brocks are just sitting there waiting to pop through and any top teeth he gets are bad. He has 4 top, 4 bottom and has one top molar so waiting for others to come through. Worst thing with teething is it causes him really bad nappy rash which i need to treat with Daktozin and Sudocrem also with his wee having excess acid it burns his lil balls  sad.gif

Foxi glad to hear that Kyle has his 1st job and i bet you are soo proud that Paige is going on to Uni, i hated study so there was no chance i was going on to uni etc.  So are you now a proud grandma or are you still awaiting the arrival??

Kylie So hows Mitch going with the walking?? In a way i wish Brock wasnt walking cos he is a handful and once he is let down on his own he is off like a rocket and i get sooo tired just keeping up with him... hope he slows down by the time this bub is born!!  Boys are sooo much more trouble i reckon... Brock can now reach things on the kitchen bench and is climbing anything!

Kerry waves.gif Nice to see you!! How is the clan going?

Tam my gosh how your pregnancy has flown by!!

Well i am well, had my 12 week scan today which was good. I am measuring on time and bub is developing well, i got to see him/her in 3D which was just awsum and so from here i have my 1st antenatal clinic on Thursday 12th November so its really hitting home now that im having another bubba!! Well here are a few pics from my scan today  wub.gif

I am totally loving the weather lately here in Perth with tomorrow meant to be 27, Friday 29 and Saturday 32  cool.gif  i have organised a BBQ with Eammons dad, his wife to be, his 3 brothers and their partners as it will be a great time to catch up!!

Ok im off to have a shower... Nite Nite    happy.gif

Gosh, not a single post since 14/10!   Come on girls where aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarre you?  YoooooooHooooooo?

Re-posting from FB: Last week I had a glorious week of absolutely undisturbed nights (6 in a row OMG without a peep out of Darcy!). He was gorgeous during the daytime, happy and eating well, then tired at night and even fell asleep for Daddy (first and second times ever), so I missed out on my mummy cuddles twice awwww.

But, Darcy had a crappy night last night, with waking up screaming twice, once with a toxic poo filled nappy, and a bit unsettled this morning, looks like the molars on the left bottom are whinging again. The right bottom ones are through, along with his 8 front teeth.

I made a bit of a christmas list yesterday - 28 presents, the bulk of them kiddies! I hate buying toys for kids, I never know what to get. Those of you with girls, what do you get for girls of 1 and 3 and 4 and 7 and 9 and 16? And those of you with boys, what do you get for boys of 1 and 5 and 8 and 11 and 17? arghhh

My work will be vacating our building on 17th November and moving into the brand new state-of-the-art 6-star-rated green building for Australia Post Headquarters. Oooooh spiffy! Can't wait. It's lovely to be throwing out years and years of paperwork and taking almost nothing with us! But I'm only on the 5th floor, so no decent view, but it'll be better than the view of three walls and a corridor that I have now lol.

Thinking of you all, hope you're enjoying your weekend.

In the past days Mitch has taken 1,2,4,6 and then 8 steps unaided.Today he has taken 8 then turned around and waked another 8. So I think we're finally getting there. He has been walking for about 4 months pushing Jessie's prams & shopping trolleys everywhere, so its great to see him doing it by himself now.

Sandi, it's very exciting  moving offices, not so exciting packing though.We moved end of July, and I still haven't finished  unpacking and get sorted out. One day.
Xmas presents, boys about 5 love Ben 10 so anything Ben 10 related or teenage mutant turtles, clothes included. Girls 3 or 4, barbie's, strawberry shortcake, hair clips,  fairy skirts/wings, anything girly. Can't help with the rest, good luck.
How's Darcy now? teeth??Mitch has a few coming too. Now such thing as a sleep through in my  household.

Kyles, what did you decide about finding out on the sex of bubs?cute pics.

Tam, not long now, it has gone fast, although I'm sure you don't think so.

Hi Maryanne waves.gif

Bron, how do we get to your blog?  biggrin.gif

HI girls,

Hope everyone is well and had a great weekend.

The link to my blog is in my signature but here it is here too!

I also cannot believe it is Christmas so soon!  I made a decision to do all handmade gifts this year and have been doing well with all the bdays Cooper is going too lately!  I am in the process of making his 4 teachers presents which is really fun! plus the zillion of family!  WE have a KK for both sides which is great.  WE have a $20 limit for my fam and this year it has to be homemade or recycled and for Andrews Fam it's a $50 limit for extended family.

I have asked for no material presents for the kids and for the aunties and uncles to take the kids for a special outing.

We are doing some wine labels with the kids handprints and paintings.
Heatpacks ( with lavendar and wheat) and eye masks.
Homemade choccies
Painted and decorated wooden tree decorations

Pep has hit the terrible 2's alrady and throwing some great tanti's plus she is a climber so she fell off the table before but hopefully she will remember not to do that again!  she is just so busy all the time and never stops unless it is to quickly eat or have a nap!

Yay to Mitch's walking!!! how exciting! original.gif

Bron xoxo

Bron - Hello honey!

I think Pep & Koby should marry, Kobes fell off the table too. He is a hyperactive crazy looney child...On second thought, maybe Pep shouldn't marry him  laughing2.gif

I ♥ the idea of hand made gifts. I'm so not craft orientated (Kyles doesn't believe me because I work @ Spotlight!).

Hey got any plans for January? I'm going to Melbourne for a wedding & would love to meet up with the Smith family.

I have a new fave pic of Coop, its the one with your Mum swimming. OMG I ♥ it!! And this is my favourite of the 2 of them. You have such beautiful kids ♥

Hope you're well beautiful girl ♥ Kisses to the beautiful boy and gorgeous girl of yours xox

Hello to everyone else (I'm pretty sure I say hello to most of you most days on FB)

Shameless Bump...

Today I was meant to meet up with lots of EB mums...

went to Maccas with Darcy today (his first time) and it was McHappy Day, so we donated money and got served by a guy wearing a Richmond Footy Guernsey. Then I shared my McMuffin with a very excited Darcy and he investigated the Playground. Such a shame the rest of the girls weren't able to make it. But it was lovely for both of us. And then he came home and slept for THREE HOURS

Then.....OM*G, I just looked back on the "arrangements" that I'd made!!! What a dolt am I!!! I was sposed to meet the girls on Sunday! TOMORROW... Hahahhahhahahahhaha, what an idiot! Oh well, Darcy gets to go to Maccas again! He did enjoy the playground, so it will be even more fun with friends to share it with. Yay!

What a TWIT!  laughing2.gif

Who in here is TTC or Still BFing? Nate is still on 1 feed a day before bed, but I would to see what others are doing.

We are TTC#3 before I am 30 in April, is anyone else TTC? this cycle will be #7, I hope it is the cycle that works for us. I have just lost a 3 weeker but i am coping ok  with it. I lost one before Nate, so hope it means the next one will be sticky.

Well better go, just thought I would see IF I was the tread killer and try to get this thread back on track. But everyone must be busy.

Oh no, I do have to go, Nate has found my purse and is having a lot of fun with it!!! ffear.gif  roll2.gif
