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. 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 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 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 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

Leanne...you should have used my hubby Hes a customs broker 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 Was sooooo much fun 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 One or two a month would be awesome
Ok I better get back to it...big night tonight WAs hubby and my bdays so we are going out to drink WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much and have fun WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

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

Sorry I haven't replied in ages, been rather busy with the kids as you all are. Not sure if you remember me I have Cooper,
Katy congrats on your 3 baby soo happy for you.
Kaylene - your little girl is soooo cute, glad you are enjoying your photography I am jealous, I would love to get into it, I didn't a basic course for digital slr at our local communtiy college but I just don't get the time to practice.
Not much is new with us Cooper is a bit of a soccer star and lives and breathes it, he starts school next year and we have just had our interview for it.
Promise to keep checking in.
Take care guys.

Miss E is starting to walk...she is up to 10 steps But i wish it woudl all slow down...my babies are all growing up WAY too fast!
Katy are you all settled in now? Hows E? Behaving yet?
Shelly of course we remember you Pick up that camera and run with it
hugs to all, hope you are all well

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 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 Was it for a friend? Well done Miss E on walking to Your baby is growing up. You'll have to get another one
Shelly - Of course we remember you. Nice to hear from you.

How are we all?
Glad to hear that you are settled in now...
Shooting a birth... wow, how special!
Hello... Welcome back, I still remember you
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 )
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 )

Thought I'd better bump this thread before it gets buried even further
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...
It's freezing cold here right now that I am actually wearing a winter jacket!
