Yes a bit tired but going ok so far.
Feeding well although 2hrly but has a 4hr block at night. Been so busy and just have to slow down for Patrick as he doesn't like being pushed around from pillar to post. And with Christmas coming up its just mayhem with so much to do and organise. But we are getting there.
I took a picture on my phone of him today and he smiled such a lovely smile. Pure fluke. But sent it on to a few family members. He is starting to look a lot like Hayden now. Can only hope the personality follows too don't think I need another Mitchell as much as I dearly love Mitch, he has a killer attitude. Otherwise I'm feeling good and Sam helping with a lot of things which makes it easier.
Anyway I'd better get back to things that I need to get done before Jr wakes for next feed.

Mitch hasn't been well as his Asthma is playing up quite a bit and have been borderline of going into hospital if things don't turn around and start improving for him. So I've had a lot of wakeful nights and him being in my room on a camp stretcher next to me so I can help him and hear him if any problems.
Hayden has had ear problems over the last week too but is coming good now.
Going for a 3D gender scan today so hopefully we will now know for sure if we are having a boy or a girl. Since the previous Sonographer was not helpful and was confusing us by telling us girl than boy - just wished she'd said she didn't know and left it at that.
Missing DH as he is away for 2 weeks at Coober Pedy for work. Mitch doesn't understand where Daddy is and wants him home and cries. They normally have breakfast together in the mornings before he goes to work. Hayden is ok about it.
Just want things back to normal again. So much going on at the one time I feel snowed under and a bit stressed.
Hopefully the next time I post will be with better news and things picking up again.

If a Boy I like
Patrick John ( or some other middle name not sure ) John is my Dad's name and Luke is my DH's middle name and his brother's first name.
OR If a Girl ( I have heaps of names but I'll put what I like most )
I really like to use Rose as a middle name as my mother's name is Rosemarie. None of the names have been seen by DH yet so it will be shortend.

As you can see me 2nd in on the right have very much the preggo belly on me. 15 weeks on Sunday but since this is my 3rd I've popped out a lot more and I still have the bloated feeling so I still feel very much inflated. Will find out the sex of bubs in 31 days. So I look forward to that.
A: No, 35 children is enough.
Q: I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.
Q: What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?
Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right? !
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.
Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant
Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word 'alimony' means anything to you.
Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.
Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.
Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.

I've kick started my cardmaking again combined with stamping and really enjoying it again as its just relaxing. I should take more pictures of my cards. Haven't scrapped for a few months and I'm slowly getting into the mood to do it again. I plan to do a Stampin Up workshop there which will incorporate various techniques of stamping and making 3 cards and a gift box so it should be great fun.
And here are two Card Sketches. The good thing about sketches is they can be used for inspiration for both paper and digital scrapping.
A lot of my inspiration comes from sketches and then I usually put my own twist on it, something different. At the moment I really enjoy opals using them on chipboard and stamping onto them to make a texture imprint on them. Very Effective.
Till Next time - Lea

I normally do on weekends to make it easier on most and also gives you more time creating.
I will let you know dates and times very soon just waiting for the location to give me the ok.
Classes vary depending what the class is about re – cards, Scrapbooking and the materials used.
First class will consist of making 3 cards and a little gift. All of which you make and take home with you.
In this class you’ll be learning a few techniques to get you started.
After the class there will be an opportunity to order any materials you’d like to start you on your way.
There will be a fee of $15 which will cover the materials used and the hire of the location.
Due to the popularity of these classes I’ve had to move location from my own home to a larger location.
I will let you know when the date is set.
Look forward to seeing you there.
And you are welcome to bring a few friends just let me know how many so I have enough seating.
Email me if you are interested in attending.

Next, we get our periods in our early to mid-teens (or sooner). Along with those budding boobs, we bloated, we cramped, we got the hormone crankies, had to wear little mattresses between our legs or insert tubular, packed cotton rods in places we didn't even know we had.
Our next little rite of passage was having sex for the first time which was about as much fun as having a ramrod push your uterus through your nostrils (IF he did it right and didn't end up with his little cart before his horse), leaving us to wonder what all the fuss was about.
Then it was off to Motherhood where we learned to live on dry crackers and water for a few months so we didn't spend the entire day leaning over Brother John . Of course, amazing creatures that we are (and we are), we learned to live with the growing little angels inside us steadily kicking our innards night and day making us wonder if we were preparing to have Rosemary's Baby.
Our once flat bellies looked like we swallowed a whole watermelon and we pee'd our pants every time we sneezed. When the big moment arrived, the dam in our blessed Nether Regions invariably burst right in the middle of the mall and we had to waddle, with our big cartoon feet, moaning in pain all the way to the ER.
Then it was huff and puff and beg to die while theOB ? says, 'Please stop screaming, Mrs. Hearmeroar . Calm down and push. 'Just one more good push' (more like 10), warranting a strong, well-deserved impulse to punch the
%$#*@*#!* hubby and doctor square in the nose for making us cram a wiggling, mushroom-headed 10 pound bowling ball through a keyhole.
After that, it was time to raise those angels only to find that when all that 'cute' wears off, the beautiful little darlings morphed into walking, jabbering, wet, gooey, snot-blowing, life-sucking little poop machines.
Then come their 'Teen Years.' Need I say more?
When the kids are almost grown, we women hit our voracious sexual prime in our early 40's - while hubby had his somewhere around his 18th birthday.
So we progress into the grand finale: 'The Menopause,' the Grandmother of all womanhood. It's either take HRT and chance cancer in those now seasoned 'buds' or the aforementioned Nether Regions, or, sweat like a hog in July, wash your sheets and pillowcases daily and bite the head off anything that moves.
Now, you ask WHY women seem to be more spiteful than men, when men get off so easy, INCLUDING the icing o n life's cake: Being able to pee in the woods without soaking their socks...
So, while I love being a woman, 'Womanhood' would make the Great Gandhi a tad crabby. You think women are the 'weaker sex?' Yeah right. Bite me.
