Hello! Yes, Hawaii was wonderful and DH survived at home with the boys. I came home and Tyler has 4 molars cutting at the same time. He's been in so much pain (and unbelievably fussy) that I took him to the doc to rule out anything else wrong with him...and because he had a 103 fever. Glad DH didn't have to deal with that.

Another problem I'm dealing with is that all of sudden the boys hardly eat anything. They literally take a couple of bites at each meal and that's it. And it's a fight to get them to get in their chairs to eat too. I asked the doc about it and they said it's normal at this age and if I can get them to eat one decent meal a day I should be happy. Geez, I had no idea! I researched it online and found the same thing. Anyone else having this?

Tracii...thinking about school already!!??? Oh my!!

Sue...hope the counseling is helpful to you! I think about you often.

Cla...thanks for checking my blog! I can totally relate to what you said about taking the time to get ready. I laughed at that whole paragraph.

Julie...I bet Hendricks will all of a sudden RUN and you won't be able to keep up with him. ha ha

Hi all!

Sorry for quick post - am at work and it's pretty busy. Was just feeling guilty for not posting for so long!

Went down to London this weekend to visit my family and had a really nice time. Went out Sat night with my sisters whilst my Mum babysat - what a treat! It was my nephews 2nd birthday so Charlie and I went to his party - really enjoyed it (except when the balloon popped in his face - major tantrum then Bless!!).
However have now returned and it seems Charlie has an infection :cry: dp is at the doctors now with him but he has a very high temp and it really lethargic (VERY unusual for him!!). anyhow I expect they may give him some antibiotics and we'll give lots of tlc!!! That's bound to make him fell a lot better!

Sorry for the me post - no time for personals but hope all is well!

Hi Guys

It's been an age - it is soooo amazing to get back to the message board and see this thread still current and right at the top of the list!!

I hope you are all doing well - I have lots of reading to catch up on how you and all the wee boys and girls are doing!!

We are all good here, Maia is a total bundle of energy - all smiles (and screams!). Am looking forward to catching up with you . . .

talk soon

Mel

(ps: I had to rejoin, couldn't remember passwords and the like - but its Mel_p here (NZ) I had maia in the same few weeks as all of you.)

Hey Mel!!! So good to hear from you. I'd love to see some new pics of Maia and see how she's grown. How is everything going for you?

Yeah, we don't all post as much as we used to, but many of us still do keep in touch and post every week or two. It's nice to keep up with each other. I can't believe my boys are nearing 1.5 yrs old soon. Time sure does fly!

Photobucket is ivfgroup for both the username & password. I haven't posted pics there in awhile either. We should all try to post a new pic of the kids in the next week or so.

My boys have their 6th cold of the winter season. Yuck! Otherwise we are doing good!

Hi all!

Mel - great to hear from you! Would love to see some up to date pictures of Maia. I'm not very good at updating photobucket but do try when I can!

Charlie is much better now thanks - had 3 or 4 days of feeling really miserable but back to smiles and cheekiness! Finally found a new tooth this morning! Been having the symptoms for AGES but no new ones - and yet saw this morning that it's just cut through the skin. Yeah!

Kristii - sorry to hear about the colds. Roll on summer eh!

how's everyone else doing? Little ones up to any new tricks????

Hey just wondered if any of you guys are thinking of giving it another go (for number 2 - or 3 if you were blessed with twins!!)

I am starting an FET cycle at the moment - and just feel so confused - brought back lots of old baggage and memories - though thankfully the degrees of hope and total desperation are no way near as psychosis inducing as they were before we had bubba!

Mel P - nice to see you back. and good luck with your FET, Jessica was the result of a FET and she is one determined little girl!!!!

I dont know if i would go through it all again, as we would have to do the complete thing again and with the PND, i dont know if i would risk it. Having said that i may consider it in a year or two, if things have settled down, as i dont want jess to be an only child. Even though we have loads of nephews and neices, they very rarely visit.

How is everyone else, did you do anything special for mothers day? Must dash as i need to get dressed for work. Just wanted to bring post up, as it was too far down for my liking!!!!

love

Mel, good luck with the FET! How exciting for you! Where are you at in the process now? I guess you are the first of our bunch to give it a go a 2nd time!

I was just looking at photobucket because I haven't checked it out in a really long time! I saw some cute pics of Jess, Hendricks & Colin that I hadn't seen before. What cuties! I also saw a precious picture of fulloffaith's triplets and thought to myself "I wish I would have had triplets". Then I caught myself! Wow, that must be a lot of work. They were so precious looking in that picture.

Today, for the first time, I looked up the stairs and saw Brady reading a book. He had escaped from his crib without making a noise. I have no idea how he managed to get out of it. Great....another thing to worry about now!

Nothing else is new here. Cla...yes, I can't wait for SPRING!!!!

Hi all!

Nice to look and see lots of new posts! I feel so guilty not posting more often, but do look when I can!

Tracii - can't wait to hear about nursery. I know what you mean about pulling legs to get you to pay more attention. I try to "work" from home once a week but can honestly say I spend more time playing than working!!!

Kristii - Saw your blog recently and the video of Brady climing out of his crib was hilarious (or was that Tyler - I have got babybrain!!). You will def. need to put it on it's lowest setting, and also get rid of the cot bumper too. I don't think (!) charlie can climb out yet but you've made me wary! He's a fab climber so will beware!

Mel - How's the FET coming on? Are you on a natural or medicated cycle?

Sue - Nice to hear from you! How's work going? Are you back full time now?

Bella - Haven't heard from you for a while? How's things on the other side of the world?!!

Madiva - How's the gorgeous Colin? Is he walking yet?!!!!!

4 new teeth for us - yeah!!!! I thought it was just 2 but I'm (almost!) sure it's 2 at the bottom too! That would make 16 so far - am I right that there are just 20 in total? I hope so!!!!!!

Sorry - am at work and phone keeps ringing. Don't they know I need to keep up with my personal life?!!!

Sorry to those I've missed!
