Expectant DC#2shock YOU GO GIRL!! Oops will get there first but it's nice she'll have company.

Sazzles sorry about dd1's face. Please please put her on prohibotics while she's taking the antibotics.

Sambo don't be envy. I'm in over my head now. Your remodel idea is EXACTLY what we had planned but sometimes those long term plans look too far away and we had the money to make the short term work...thus the mess at present. And on the co-sleep last night....our dcs must have been texting because my dd1 had the same issue.hmm

VG I've reread my post the day Reese arrived several times. I go through every emotion under the sun. LOVELY PIC by the way.wink

Pertelote {{{HUGS}}} as if you don't have enough to worry over. Weaning is such crazy territory so I'm with you and the hmm how does it all work bit. I have a weaning style quite like Dizzy at the solids yesterday but a bit of pear-blueberry-oatmeal today.hmm

Buckets I am totally envy of your cool movie outing. My dd1 would do perfectly there!!!

No1 I'm glad Marcus enjoyed his BMFEAST.grin

Oops BABY YOGA envy!!!!

Captain & Poppy I think both those weigh ins were

Hi Ataraxis!!

WHACK day here today. My sleep issues have totally taken their toll on me. I'm so tired I feel that it feels like I have the flu.

Granite is now nicely installed. WOW! What a difference. It could dress up a slum kitchen. I am very impressed.

I am not however impressed with the flooring I selected for the kitchen. I picked it up after the counters were installed and went hmm no. The carpet guy agreed. Sent DH to return it when he got home....because I was too embarrassed to return it myself. I really have grown to HATE the store I bought it from and after the hassle DH went through to return he feels the same way.

That means back to the drawing board on the kitchen flooring.sad

Selected masterbedroom carpet this evening. I went with what DH really wanted which was what the carpet dude thought would look the best. DH has been correct on several other choices so I'll step aside and go with him. He doesn't know yet. I figure I'll let it be a surprise.grin

Figured out what might have been making DD1 mean as a hornet over the past few weeks. Found TWO new chompers in her mouth this morning. I guess they are the 5 year molars. Looks to me like the both cracked the same day. No wonder she's been testy.

Reese had a little more real food night but I still think I should be offering it more often. Just doesn't fit into my schedule at the present moment. Bottles do.hmm

Unless something wild and crazy takes place this week there will be NO MORE Surferbabies. SNIP SNIP is FRIDAY!!! I have a sense of CALM about it. Feels nice to be looking beyond the baby making years at the WHATs NEXT

Morning all!

Sorry to miss all the chat yesterday, got caught up in real life shock. Had my sister over plus three friends and their six children so with my two as well it was quite a houseful! Think we ate our own bodyweight in sausages and butterfly buns and the carpet was a fecking disgrace after they'd finished but a lovely time was had by all grin. We even managed to play outside for a while, after the freezing conditions of the last few weeks there is a definite feel of Spring in the air, hurrah!

DS yelping, better go, but will be back in a bit re HotPot hmmwink

ataraxis Tue 17-Feb-09 08:35:40


ts, have you thought about Karndene flooring? Don't know if it is readily available in the US, but loads of it is lovely.

DS1 says Hi and gives you a smile grin wink and lastly angry just because he likes red.

On that note... see you soon (I hope)

TS Get him some new tightie whiteys before the op as a present.

Sazzles Good luck, I had no joy from GP or developmental paediatrician getting a referral for DS1 despite lifelong chronic diarrhoea and eczema from about 18m, both of which are classic symptoms of cow's milk intolerance which itself is v common with autismangry. I just didn't want to bugger about with elimination diets completely blind - who would? DS thought the pinpricking was funny but was a bit tricky getting enough blood in the right place!

Speaking of poo, I changed my first solid pooey nappy in 4yrs this morning, basically since DD was in nappies (she was dry at 24m!) Thank you Kurt and your lovely normal normal NORMAL bowels, guess some of that BLW is going in after all. <<Happy poo dance>>

cyteen Tue 17-Feb-09 08:51:11

just getting on new thread, have serious nappy situation to attend to!

sambo303triesforScotland Tue 17-Feb-09 08:54:49

morning all

ts lovely new thread, thanks! Granite worktops - yum!

hi ataraxis was just thinking yesterday we'd not heard from you for a while, hope all's well

sazzles glad you had a restful night. I think probiotics keep friendly bacteria levels up in the gut because antibiotics kill the bad and the good - they are in those tiny yogurt drinks they advertise on tv.

buckets keep that brilliant thread title in mind, we'll need it in about 2 days grin

hotpot I also got a feeling spring was in the air yesterday, I cant wait for some warmer weather smile

we actually had a <whispers> ok night last night shock Ds only up at midnight and 3.45am to feed. Wonderful!

oopsRonanOGarascoconuts Tue 17-Feb-09 09:02:53

Sazzles - tbese are what I used when I had Anti B's her I got mine frm the local health food shop. They will ease the effect the Anti B's have on her system.

hotterpotter Tue 17-Feb-09 09:30:05

Sambo well done on a good night's sleep grin. DS was up every hour from midnight onwards hmm honestly I don't know what I'm doing wrong, the night before his first wake-up was at 3.30am. It might have been due to all the excitement yesterday actually, he doesn't feed too well when the house is full of other children, he's too nosey. Although he did enjoy a few blueberries, not fresh from the box like a proper mummy would give, rather picked out of a muffin blushblushblush

Buckets congratulations on the solid poo grin. My nephew has autism and he has a lot of trouble with his poo too. He's on a dairy and gluten-free diet which is very hard work for SIL, especially as she's a veggie and has had to learn to cook meat for him. It seems to be doing the trick though. I really hope you get your DS sorted just without dairy smile

Sazzles I really hope you get somewhere with DD's rash sad and hope she feels better now her teeth are appearing. We never had a sign of teething from DD, they just all appeared without a whimper, red cheek or anything shock. I think DS is made from different stuff though...

Don't you realise Sambo and VG that I am a Yorkshire lass and hotpot is from <<hisses>> Lancashire winkgrin

Off shoe shopping for DD today. Hope everyone else hasn't had the same idea hmm

oopsRonanOGarascoconuts Tue 17-Feb-09 09:32:39

okay so even my first post has spelling errors in it!
Hope everyone is good nd got some sleep last night. We got 7 - 10.30 the 10.30 to 5 then 5 - 8 so not too bad.

We are off for a walk in a bit and then onto the town Pancake Day pancake races. Yummy grin.

Buckets LOL at your happiness at poo. smile

hotterpotter Tue 17-Feb-09 09:38:32

But Oops pancake day is next week???

Hotter - Yes it is but there is summat else on in the Market Place next week and these are the Help the Aged Charity sponsored ones. Maybe they think it will take until next Tuesday to finish grin shock

dizzydixies Tue 17-Feb-09 09:47:38

never too soon to start with the pancakes imo grin

not a great night here, Dylan decided she wanted to be up singing and pooing so am shattered - was up at 5.30 doing the laundry as she stealth pooped me angry and it went everywhere

DD1 in school, DD2 in nursery and DH in bed sleeping off a nightshift so I'm going to try for a nap too blush

sambo303triesforScotland Tue 17-Feb-09 09:50:06

well spotted hotpot - and now I've just realised my activities for the week (2 x rhymetimes) are not on cos it's half term -eek, what to do with DS????

hmm here's a tasty recipe wink

no1putsbabyinthecorner Tue 17-Feb-09 10:08:11

mOrning all, a lovely sunny day again here in Yorkshire.
Marcus up about 6 times to feed agin last night, only on last wake up did I realize he was wet. oops.blush

no1putsbabyinthecorner Tue 17-Feb-09 10:10:49

dizzy shock at your early start, hope you manage to get a nap. smile

just waiting for nappy load to finish to hang out, then off for a walk and to post office in next village.

dizzydixies Tue 17-Feb-09 10:11:52

am just reading a thread about parking and cannot believe its all hit the fan shock

has amused me no end so am off to either do something productive hmm or rest

oopsRonanOGarascoconuts Tue 17-Feb-09 10:18:57

I am now waiting for a the man who seems to be randomly wondering around our garden to DO SOME WORK!! I asked him an hour ago to put my washingline spike in the ground so I can get some washing outside - he said 'righto, I'll get right onto it' and dissapeared! I would do it myself but I wrecked the last one blush.

DD napping on me, she had her first porridge today - rice porridge (not babyrice but flaked rice cooked with ricemilk and grated pear!) she loved it. Last night she had a bit of my broccoli and it came out in her nappy whole shock.

dizzydixies Tue 17-Feb-09 10:19:29

apparently not, thats Dylan awake again hmm

will be making sure solids play a part in the schedule at some point today!!

AnnVan Tue 17-Feb-09 10:25:10

Morning everyone!
Ok-ish night here. Little man down at midnight then woke at 4.30 and has yet to wake. So the eternal dilemma rears its head - do I wake him, or just leave him?

Buckets fab poo dance there! grin
Ooh, am staaaaarving, so going to grab a bite while I can.
