Hey chicky babes.
Sam, hope Isabelle is much better now. What was it they had? So exciting about your sister and PP!
Big hugs to you guys going through such tough times.
Wow, sounds like Zoe has dropped the night feed huh? Yay to more sleep! But sad too bf'ing over. Cast is currently sitting up on my chest of drawers in the bedroom. It was hanging on the wall above the chest of drawers, but I noticed the wire was pulling through the cast a bit on one side, as it just didn't seem to get as thick with the plaster there. So I need to do some more plastering to it to reinforce it, then it can hang back up on the wall again. My round the corner neighbour did one when she was pregnant with her twin boys and she did mosaic tiling to decorate hers...am very jealous as it looks sooooo cool. She's got hers on a stand in their living room. She's preggers again, due late next month, and I asked her if she's going to do another, but she said nah...thinks she'll get a nude drawing this time as she has a friend who is an artist. Hope she does as I just think that's the coolest idea.
I know what you mean about windsock boobs. Hubby told me the other night he thinks they are smaller now than they were before I got preggers etc.
Channy, that is great that Aidan is such a great eater, and sounding positive as your were hoping he'd put on a fair bit of weight this month. Dinner always seems to be a bit of a problem in our household.
Frankie won't really eat much except mashed sweet pot, pumpkin, or potato. She'll eat corn on the cob as well. Then usually I just put pasta or cous cous or something with it. She doesn't really eat any fruit except banana, oh and sultanas. Then she may eat some yoghurt, just depending, and then it's usually a mini muffin I've made...currently zucchini ones I've made. Hope your date last night was lovely...sounded very romantic.
As for something to wear...was thinking same as Sam...what about those maxi dresses girl!
I have a pair of little dunlop volleys that I got handed down, and a little pair of great sandals my aunt got her for christmas from an asian shoe shop in Brissie somewhere and they have a proper sole. I'm hearing ya re the painting...definitely good to get the painter in...sooooo great when we had our kitchen, lounge, dining done. I did the toilet, laundry, bathroom and of course now Frankie's room. When the time comes though to have our bedroom & walk in robe, spare room, two hallways, and office done I'm definitely saving up for the painter again.
We've had an early waking bubba this last week as well. I know what you mean about the light. Frankie's roman blind is full block out, but we're still just hanging up a cotton blanket over it also to keep light that gets in around the corners to stop her waking early. It usually works, but I think this week early waking has been to her having a cold, her day sleeps seeming to be all mucked up, and well...just another one of those 'phases'.
Yep, definitely having some 'toddler moments' here as well.
Aidan bit you...naughty little monkey...hasn't he heard the saying 'don't bite the hand that feeds you'....
Katie, great to hear from you! Your dishwasher job sounds like what happens with jobs in our house! Oh, poor little Halle with her lip...ouchy! Sounds like she's quite the climber though! Was Cohen a climber? Yay to the shed going up and being able to clear the clutter...gotta love that feeling! You've dyed your hair brown, FB pics please! Happy 6 year anniversary! Yep, we have snotsville here. *sigh* She hasn't been as bad as some times previously though. Think I'm going to have to keep her home from daycare tomorrow though. I'd love to hear what your gf thinks of the sos toddler book.
Mel, we've got Damien Leith performing in town here soon. Not a fan of Shannon Noll either really. Thursday day off was pretty good. Had a nice day with Frankie. Yesterday was pretty full on interviewing constantly between 9 and 3:15 with only 2 x 15 min breaks. Went out to hubby's bro's farm for an early oz day bbq dinner. Got home just after midnight last night. Was pretty fun. Surprisingly I'm not feeling as tired as I thought I would today. Frankie's eating isn't as good as it was either, so I don't think it's just you. She eats a lot less now than she did plus she's WAY more fussy.
Anyhow must go, got to get ready to head out to work, doing some overtime this arvy...ick!
