Well we had Physio. Ry's feet are still turning in. So next monday its PLASTER
def the one leg maybe both ( personally i really only think the one needs it but the physio said most times they do both to make them turn the same) He'll be fine, no pain etc so its much better to do now rather than when he is walking and than cant etc as the casts go up to the groin! Sponge baths for a week - poor thing baths were the highlight of his day
. Im looking forward to decoracting the cast ( im going to borrow some paint from school hehehe) and i want to keep it too.
It sounds like he's going to have the coolest plaster legs ever! How long does he have to keep them on for?

We got back from Noosa this arvo. I so didn't want to come home. It was lovely. Took Lil to the beach yesterday for the first time, she had a great time. We sat her in the water for a bit and then she sat in the sand for a bit and ate some! Yuck! I love it up there sooo much.
I had my hair done on Friday and guess what, hubby suprised me with the new baby pink GHD hair straightner!! I am obsessed with them, I now have one in EVERY colour they have every bought out - YAY!! I am not going to use it, just leave it in its box and look at it.
Ohhh...what a great holiday, i'm so jealous!
What do you do with all those GHD's? Do you have a different one for every day of the week? Crazy...some people have shoe fetishes, you have a GHD one

Amy - it sounds like your DH has some serious making up to do! Hope you make him work for it.
Oh, and we moved DS into his car seat when he was just over 3.5 months old because he'd grown out of the capsule! If you want a good car seat, I'd highly recommend the one we got - it's reasonably priced and DS looks very comfy in it. See here: http://www.ingoodcare.com.au/igc/pages/car_seats.php
We got the blue one and it cost $270 from mybabywarehouse.com.au (although I just checked and they don't have any in stock).
Next week DS turns five months and I think it's time to try solids again. I'm also going to close up the milky-bar. I'm sad about that but it means I can go back on the pill again and start eating onions and cabbage once more, I've missed those.
I'm only getting out about 5ml a day now so it's hardly worth it but I'm so chuffed I've made it to five months.
In other news, I've been put forward for a part time job in my old company. I sent through my CV on Friday and apparently I'm a serious contender. I'm really excited because it means if I get it, I can keep all my benefits and I already am familiar with things so I won't have to learn a whole new company with a little bubba.
Wow Nep, lots happening with you!
Thanks for that link...there are a lot of blue seats on that page, can you be a little more specific?
You have done so well to get to five months of b/feeding. I know that it's been hard for you, and you come through shining, really. Congratulations!!!
Fingers crossed for your new job- sounds perfect!

What sort of price are we talking for brand new one's?
All this cloth nappy talk has got me thinking about it, seriously
I pay $25 per nappy from Baby BeeHinds for an All-in-One with velcro (basically a disposable nappy style, but cloth).How many would you go through a day?
Probably about 5-6? We still use 'sposies when we go out and about and sometimes a night Would you buy a week's worth straight up or just a few days?
I only have about 13 of them, and wash every day. I wouldn't say that you need a week's worth straight up, but a few days and get a feel for what you like and what you don't, before investing in a large bunch. You also want to decide how often you want to be washing
We LOVE using cloth. Will never has nappy rash, he has cute, bright colours on his bum, and they are just really really easy. I also keep up more with my washing- i'm forced to wash everyday now, so while i'm in there i also do DH's workshirts & other misc bits.
So i think i'm taking my old job back
I'm not too sure yet how it's all going to work out, but everyone seems pretty keen on the deal so...back to work i go!
Oh, and i've just read the posts that have sprung up since i started typing- Emma, i would have kicked my DH in the pants if he'd refused to use them. What, it's easier to put a nappy in the bin than in a nappy bucket? Should be all the same to him...
