There is so much interesting news that you ladies are up to! Intense!

I feel so boring in comparison ha.

We were in Seattle and Coeur d'alene. Just zipped down from Vancouver and up into BC over to Alberta.

Cara - yay on buying an rv and hopefully getting a new deep sea fishing boat!! I haven't been camping in ages. I have my fingers and toes crossed tightly about this job!! Make sure you keep us updated.

Natalie - I'm sure you're not boring :lol2:

AFM - DH went back to work today. DS1 had a friend sleepover last night and the little buggers ended up staying up all night 8O He just woke up from a nap and is confused as to what day it is now :lol2:
I had my NT scan on Monday. Everything went well and bubs :hb: was 165. It was stubborn and wouldn't move for the tech, just like Charlotte during her scan. So with a lot of manoeuvring we finally managed to get the measurements needed.

Thanks Krissy! Love looking at the pic :)

School holidays here at the moment so the house is trashed :| Took the kids to the park this arvo to burn off some energy. Charlotte is worn out and having a nap as we speak. House is smelling amazing at the moment. I have a roast chicken in the slow cooker. And just made choc chip cookie dough fudge for dessert. Yum yum yum. I booked my morphology scan the other day, well sort of did. Their books aren't open for Nov yet so I've been placed down for 8th Nov at 9:30am and am given first priority for that appt. They'll ring me back next week to confirm apparently.
SIL kindly pointed out to me that theres only 35 sleeps till Charlottes first birthday 8O So i better start getting her party organised!!

Hi ladies!

Sorry I've been MIA, have been reading posts when I've had time but I've been on a nesting/ spring cleaning spree this last few weeks, so when I haven't been working or with charley I've been scrubbing walls, floors, cleaning carpets, sorting clothes, doing yard work... The list is endless lol.

Had the carpet in the spare room professionally cleaned this afternoon and it looks sooo much better! It's still slightly damp though so will see how well it cleaned up by morning. Such a weight off my mind now knowing I can start setting up bubs room tomorrow :) there's currently furniture filling my dining room and Charley's room, just waiting to be set up in Bubbas room. I'll feel so much better once the room is ready.
I've promised myself and everyone else that I will slow down on the cleaning after I set it up this weekend. Lol

Only problem is I underestimated the cost of repairing my cat run and having the carpet done, so we are now totally broke and its still a week until pay.. Oops. Anyway we are trying to sell some things we've had marked for sale for ages so hopefully we get buyers soon.

I'm going to get an early night now, I'm
Falling asleep as I'm typing.. Was going to try and do catch ups for personals but my eyes are closing on me so will aim to post more over the weekend.

Hi everyone,
Just a quick update from me. Saturday morning here and as usual up bright and early! On-call overnight until 9am but after that I'm off to get my nails done - yay! Work has been busy but I'm glad to be back. Things are going well with my mum looking after Eli. We've all recovered from our colds. Had a great first birthday this week - had BIL and SIL over for lunch last weekend and they stayed until after 9pm. Lots of wine went down ;) Then had my parents over for lunch on Eli's actual birthday. No phone call from the outlaws - only a text message asking if they could have a recent photo of him. They are such freaks! They did send a card with some vouchers but I don't know what they're up to now - I think they're playing a game so all will become clear in the next few months I'm sure.

Sorry I don't have time to do personals. I hope everyone is well. Claire - I can't believe how far on you are now - I almost keep forgetting there's going to be another Babymaker's baby soon lol!

Thinking of you all - hopefully talk soon

Sorting photo's on the computer to start creating photo books of the kids and family. My eyes are starting to go funny so think I should take a break :!: Well DH is home tomorrow so I'll be MIA after that. Might give you ladies a chance to catch up. Kind of feel like I'm starting to talk to myself :blah: :rofl: Hope you're all well!! Will check back in in the morning before going to the airport xx

Hi Bella :D I'm here - kind of...
Hope you enjoy your time with DH when he gets home.

Things a bit dull with me. Working hard - long days by the time I get home so I don't have much time to come on here and post in the evenings. Feeling like I have PMS this week so feeling :mad: about lots of things lol!

How is everyone else? Things do seem pretty quiet here :?

Sorry things have been so slow!

Love the crazy house cleaning. Things have fallen a bit slack these days. Either I have no energy or more pressing matters come up!

So we came back from our trip and DH had nasal surgery. Apparently he broke his nose in boxing years ago and didn't realize it and well his nose was completely clogged with cartilage. He is recovery slowly. My girls are good. Vienna is loving Preschool and Berlin is hopefully going to cut a tooth soon...finally. Pretty much 14 months with still not a tooth!

Had my nt scan today! Whoot! I measured 13 weeks even so they bumped up my due date to April 9th. Babe healthy apparently and settled in nicely. HB was 160. I am so hoping for a girl but am thinking it is a boy.

We have been so busy with work and preschool and DH is in the CFP (Certified Financial Planner) course. He is certified in everything else but this is just extra letters to his name.

Our due date group moved to FB. It is so easy to upkeep on that. Have you guys ever thought to do that with us?

I'm getting horrible at posting on here. So sorry guys. We've been camping. Seems like I had more time to post from work and now I'm home I have no time for anything. We have a hurricane coming our way...yiippeeeee. I should be getting a call for an interview at wic next week...I'm still holding out hope. I have everything crossed I get the job!

Hi Krissy good to hear from you. Glad your staying busy. How fun picking apples!! I love fall :) Kyle walking??

Happy birthday Eli!!! How are you and Eli??

Natalie-nice to hear from you. Your ddc already went to Facebook! Wow. We didn't go until a month after the babies were born. We tried keeping TWW and wanted to get to know each other first. I can't believe little Berlin has no teeth!!! Sweet gummy smile. I'd love to see updated pictures.

Bella have fun with dh.

Krissy - I'm just posting here quickly. Are the diaper sizes the same everywhere? We're using Pampers and I've got Eli in 4's and 4plus. I'd bought a supply of 4plus but then he's become a nightmare now when trying to change him - always wanting to stand up so I had to get some pull-up nappies that are size 4. I haven't weighed him really recently but I think he's probably getting close to 11kg. I think he has long legs as he's wearing age 12-18 month trousers but I think they're going to be too small soon! Everything else is about 12 months though.
