Katy, you do what you feel is right with the feeding. You can always start really slowly with it and see how he copes.

We have our shipping containers finally. One is unloaded and the other is still on the docks being "dealt" with as they found a live bug, one they had never seen before. GREAT! and that was the one with the correct paperwork saying it had been fumigated.

13 crates of marble flooring so far. original.gif Just gotta build the house for it.

I'm back on night shift next week so fingers crossed I get to catch some lovely new babies without too many dramas! Nights are always good for women who just turn up ready to push it out.

Well I got one night where E didn't feed until 3am, but then last night it was back to 2 feeds again. Yesterday from 6.30am through to 6.30am this morning I fed him 9 times oomg2.gif 10 if you count the one a 6.30 this morning. And he is not just snacking, he is feeding me dry, everytime. I figure I will just see how he goes until he is 5 months and re-evaluate the solids then. I might also do a drop in at the MCHN to see if he is growing.

Leanne - Wow, marble floors ohmy.gif My bro tried to convince us to put marble in out bathroom. He is a stone mason and uses it a lot. He however, wasn't offering to supply it or lay it, so we went with lino laughing2.gif I might ask him to make us something for the new house though, as he does amazing carving. I hope you managed to catch some babies original.gif bbaby.gif

Leanne...you should have used my hubby wink.gif Hes a customs broker wink.gif but WOW lucky you to have marble!!

Katy...go with your instincts...Miss C was on solids at 4 months, Em 6...they are ready when they are ready! Have you tried water instead to see if its just habit?? Justa thought.

Here...I shot a wedding Wednesday at a weeks notice original.gif Was sooooo much fun original.gif I do love weddings and am thinking of getting into them mor eseriously. ALL so far have come from referrals and I have done 7 original.gif original.gif One or two a month would be awesome original.gif

Eamon's feeding has now improved, as has his sleeping. I think it might have been a bit of a combination of the two. I  might still start him on solids at 5 months, but whatever happens, it won't be until we have moved into the new house. We pick up the keys tomorrow, and I'll take over a few boxes then, and let the kids choose their room.

Kaylene - I haven't tried water, because he cracks it majorly if I try to put a dummy in so I don't think he will take to well to a bottle. How exciting doing more weddings. Your business sure is expanding, you always seem to be doing something new and interesting. I loved the wedding photos with the balloon. Hope you had a great birthdya night and aren't too hungover

We are all settled in now. Close enough to it anyway. We finally have the phone and internet back on too after 2 weeks without. Supposedly if you are not with Telstra they like to make it as difficult as possible rolleyes.gif Anyway, I will know for the next move to get in earlier.

We went and checked out Lily's new school the other day. It looks lovely, and I think she will really do well there. She is really looking forward to it.

Eamon's feeding has slowed down, but I have started him on solids anyway. He has been on them for just over a week and is doing really well. I have also stopped any night feeds, as it was more habit than need. I am still up a lot settling him, but it goes straight back to sleep, unlike when he is hungry, where he keeps waking.

Kaylene - How exciting getting to photograph a birth oomg2.gif Was it for a friend? Well done Miss E on walking to tthumbs.gif Your baby is growing up. You'll have to get another one tongue.gif

Shelly - Of course we remember you. Nice to hear from you.

Hi Girls

How are we all?

Katy:
Glad to hear that you are settled in now...

Kaylene:
Shooting a birth... wow, how special!

Leanne:
Hello... Welcome back, I still remember you original.gif

Angela:
How are you and family? Hope things are going great and everyone is happy & healthy...

As for us...
We've had another round of cold in the family. Thank God we are almost 100% recovered now (apart from the odd cough that attacks out of the blue).

We had been so unwell last week that I seriously considered to cancel our planned weekend at Mt. Selwyn.

I didn't do much preparation in advance as I was still feeling pretty sick.
However, DH was very keen as we were not only going with my group of close friends, but also his closed mates from his Uni times.

As DH was so keen, we decided to still go (after all, we would still be sick - sick and have fun sounded better than sick and confined lol ).

I am glad we went even though it was with rushed (therefore tiring for me) preparation. We ended up having great break (well, I am discounting all the coughing that hurts my abdomen and ribs plus causing me limited sleep original.gif)

Anyone plans something special for Father's Day?
The boys made some drawings, cards, and rocky road at preschool which they are suppose to hide and give to daddy on Sunday morning (but DH is reading my typing right now, so it's no longer a surprise for him wwhistle.gif )

Hi everyone...

Thought I'd better bump this thread before it gets buried even further original.gif

How is everyone?

So far we are having a nice school holiday break - I am enjoying the slower pace of holiday and the absence of the need to rush the kids all morning.

I had a great time catching up with my sister & one IRL friend here yesterday. It was pretty exhausting for me as the host, but really fun!

Hope everyone has a great weekend...

PS.
It's freezing cold here right now that I am actually wearing a winter jacket!
