hey bloggers,
Just thought i would share some minor scrapbooking with you all. I joined an ATC group here on the coast and this was my first attempt for the group. Our theme was zodiac and i just chose to do my star sign, i was sooooooo nervous that i wouldnt be up to the girls expectations lol, but i think i did alright. Let me know what ya think. Oh in the next couple of days hopefully i'll be able to post more scrappin up, the morning sickness is subsiding so hopefully i'll get creating, can only hope lol.

My family is expanding from 3-4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :)

I'm so excited that i can finally share this news with you all, my partner and i are expecting our 2nd baby, yup i'm pregnant! Its been so hard not being able to tell anybody, the original plan was not to tell anybody until our first ultrasound, but people let things slip, and family get upsett by me not telling straight away, but i need to respect my partners wishes too. So i will let that slide, i cant make everyone happy. So now the majority of my side know but none of jamies side knows but they soon will next month when we go away with them all.cant wait to tell them.
For me the realisation of having anouther oompa loompa has set in, due to morning sickness yuck,lol, hopefully its nearly over, if i'm right i should be about 9-10 weeks this week. This time round though i have to admit its nicer being pregnant, not as much sickness and pain as i had with alex, but still i hate the first trimester ALOT!!! FOr my df it hasnt really sunk in yet, i think it will when we go for our ultrasound and he can see the little bub jumping around, its his favourite the very first screening. Whereas for alex, we need to get him a big boys bed, so outa the cot he goes, he is only 16 months old but we are talking to him all about babies and i keep pointing to my tummy and saying look alex baby in there and its sooo cute he actually points now and yells baby!!
oh one other thing, must be a womans intuition, but i knew i was pregnant probably about 3 weeks before i did the test, but i thought nah i'll wait a little longer, and the only reason i did the test was because i was actually going back on my diet after chrissy, but i said to df that hmm i think i should do a test first just to make sure before i start hammering myself and yup. Have any of you else felt like this before??
But anyways 7 months to get alex sorted out through hospital, the peaditricians have promised that they'll help me as much as they can before the bub arrives.
FAR OUT, i'm writing a novel. sorry guys just really excited, been a big month again.
take care beautiful people and HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!!!!

HELLO BLOGGERS :) Just a quick post of some layouts i did just before chrissy for christmas presents. very simple pages but i'm happy with the way they turned out. I actually experimented for the first time with paint on my scrap projects. Inspiration behind this would have to be witchies blog so i thought i would give it a go. Anyways tell me what ya'all think. xoxoxoo belynda

Not a good start to the year :(

hi again ,
like i said in my earlier post alot has happened! Today my baby and I were released from hospital. The day before new year alex became pretty sick and was vomiting alot, at first i thought it must be just a 24hour gastro bug, so naturally i expecting him to be kinda sick new years eve and he was, he kept vomiting everywhere, wasnt eating anything but was continually craving water alot. Was strange tho because on new years day he was fine and fit as a button. But by 6.00 that night he was sick again, and he went straight to sleep and slept through all night, very strange for alex, then on the 2nd jan, he wouldnt even wake up, he was tired still and sleeping continually, he couldnt even hold his head up, he had no energy, so i walked to the doctors, to try and get him in, but with no luck, so they said they could see me at 1.00pm that arvo, well by 12.oo alex was so bad, he was vommiting alot and kept falling asleep while he was vomiting. So by the time it was our appointment time, he was even more worse. We walked into the gp office i started to explain what was going on then again alex decided to let loose and he did, he spewed all over the doc and me and the desk and the floor absolutely everywhere, the doc then ordered us straight to the hospital.
anyway we arrived at the hospital, they took us straight in and hooked alex up to a drip, as he had no sugar, glucose or sodium, etc he had nothing left in his body, once the drip was put in the docs said here mum have a cuddle, and as i was cuddling him he was falling to sleep then all of a sudden he kinda bent back looked at me in a strange way then his eyes rolled in the back of his head, and his face started expanding, his cheeks grew his eyes expanded and went puffy and his body was ridged, i quickly put him on the bed and screamed whats wrong with my baby, the nurse yelled for the doctors and we were pushed outa the way and they all crowed around him then gave him a needle shot of vellium, our little baby suffered a seizure! it was the most scariest horrifying experience ever, we thought we were loosing our little baby! then the docs called us over and asked us to talk to him and see if alex would recognise us and the hardest part was that he didnt, his eyes were still in the back of his head. He remained like this for wat seemed like forever. Finally 20 mins later he came around and wanted just his daddy and mummies attention. So we were admitted to hospital adn they ran a series of tests on him, the found he has rotavirus and has an issue with water as he drinks 2 much and only craves water. So next week we have to go to brisbane and see the specialists up there so they can run a series of tests on him again, so now we have to wait. Will let you know more later. xoxoxo belynda
never take moments for granted with your children ever! you never know what could happen!!

hi everyone :) wow its been a while since i posted, been a very hectic week, actually a few weeks, first of all i had a suprise visit by alyssa and rob and jay and dave too, they were staying for chrissy then the rest of the family showed up slowly, my auntie and uncle and their 8 kids, so all in all there were about 23 ppl staying with us for 2 weeks, alot of fun!!!! some bad some good but thats how it goes.

I hope you all had a fabo chrissy, ours was great we were all spoilt rotten, especially alex as you can expect with him only beig 1! Lots of pressies to open and fantastic food to be eaten, so a great day for us all then boxing day was full of SHOPPING..whoo hooo.bargains i tell you.

Now for new years, goodbye '08' and hello '09'. Our new years was spent at surfers paradise watching the fireworks, and while we were waiting, rob my bro got a digging in the sand and started creating a couch to sit on, then other family members got involved and an awesome couch was created by midnite. Looks so cool!
so guys happy new years to you all, may the new year bring you all much love and happiness and good fortune.
