Gold!!!!  Probably doesn't really count anymore since not many people post much.

Life is pretty good here.

Caitlin is more than ready to move onto Grade 2 next year.  She is doing really well at school and is frineds with everybody (which is not good for the purse when it comes to birthday invites!).

I need to put a brick on her and Hannah's head as they are both getting very tall.

Hannah has come along in leaps and bounds this last 6 months.  She is alot more social and talks non stop.  She is more than ready for school but still has another 12 months or so.  She is looking forward to Kinder though as she will have the same teacher as Caitlin.

I hope you are all well and getting ready for the Christmas rush.

Congratulations Jen on Ben's arrival.... 4 kids now!!

Long time, no posting... hope all is well. Bethany is in grade 2 and really good, she has 4 adult teeth and I can see she will need braces LOL!! They are growing sideways ohmy.gif  we had braces with number 1 daughter and it is not cheap oomg.gif  b ut the results are worth it (but still feel ripped off  rant.gif

All my girls are at school with Shani (the suprise baby) starting school, thank god! I am working full time now, I have taken a new job running clinical trials for cancer patients. It is very challenging but I am enjoying it, and it is far more family friendly than shift work as a nurse.

Hope you are all well, I do think of you often, and of the great support we were to each other when our babies were young (???? 7 bloody years ago!!!! oomg2.gif  oomg2.gif  oomg2.gif

Hi Liz,

Just had to post as my baby is turning 7 today, I can hardly believe it. This time 7 years ago I was in labour and getting very close to her being born. WOW! Where has the time gone.

I too think about this little group often and remember fondly sharing the pregnancy and the early years with you all.

Happy birthday to all the little ones coming up....

Just thought I'd drop in to say that we're expecting No.6 (most likely a little girl) in December. bbaby.gif

The kids are all very excited, especially Madi as this will be her first sister!

We're trying to decide whether it would be crazy to move right now or not and what car to buy to fit everyone in.  blush.gif

Hope everyone is enjoying their lovely 7 year olds (hard to believe)

I see a lot of the core group through facebook now, the kids are all so big now (and we all look as young as evern of course!!).

Take care all, I also think fond memories of those times in here and the highs & lows of our birth journies.

Hello Sara
It is a tiny bit quiet around here, isn't it?
Happy birthday to Cameron.
Madi's birthday is coming up on Sunday. She has already decided that it will be the best day ever so I guess I have some work to do!
Time certainly does zip past.

Hope every one else is doing well ( the ones I don't see around on Facebook too)
