Well you guys didn't give me many ideas for puppy names yesterday did ya?

So... I decided to go with either Walt Disney character names or herb/spice names.
I've compiled a long list of girl and boy names... and as a puppy is born, I will draw a name out of the appropriate 'hat' for that girl or boy puppy.

I think that will be fun!

Of course, a bit closer to the due date, I will have a little competition on how many girls/boys Coco will have.  I'm looking forward to that.  *smiles*

Needles:  Keera has her 6 week old immunisations this morning.  Lacy is bound to be a wreck!  I'm tempted to ban her from the room while Keera has her injections!
Lacy faints at the sight of a needle!  I can't imagine her holding it together when they stick Keera with three!
So... that should be FUN.

Before that, I've got a hair appointment for a deep conditioning treatment, courtesy of the salon for being loyal to their salon.  SCORE.   You can get 'Loyalty Cards' for most anything now days!

RIGHT, that's me for now....  or not!
Did I mention I have been doing really well with a renewed effort to lose weight?  Well... I am.  I'm doing it with one of my very best friends in the whole wide world.  We are each other's 'Diet Buddy', and report to each other on the weekend.   NO STRESS... it's great.


Firstly  MARGARET:  like hell !  Earl Grey does not rock!!!   I like the ordinary Bell tea way more than freaking Earl Grey.  As if!

Doctor visit... went well.  Keera had a needle in both thighs and SCREAMED holy blue murder.  I was impressed... Lacy did not cry or faint!

After the Dr's appointment we went down to the mall so Lacy could fill out some forms for IRD stuff.  Then we got home with 20 minutes to spare before Brylee and Griffin came home.

While I was at the hair salon I got them to do some light layers around me face... it's quite nice... just a bit of interest instead of it all being the one length.  Might show ya later, if I get a chance to muck around in front of the camera! 

 ABOVE:  Keera getting weighed, she is now 5 kilos, just 120 grms above Steve's birth weight!  She did not like being weighed at all.

ABOVE:  this morning Lacy noticed a very small blueish lump under Keera's skin on her lower chest.  This is the nurse measuring it... (4mm X 2mm, tiny).   

The nurse thinks is a subcutaneous hemangioma, which is similar to a raised red birthmark, only Keera has hers under the skin.  As it is tiny, we really don't need to worry about it, as they usually self resolve in a few years.
But just to be on the safe side, she has been referred to the Paediatric Surgeon for an ultra sound.  

That will probably take months to eventuate, knowing the waiting lists at the hospital!  IF it grows alarmingly, or we are really worried we can take her back to an urgent referral, but I don't think that will happen.  (fingers crossed)
They are not dangerous to the child at all.

 ABOVE:  crap 'n' arseholes it's hard to get a decent photo of one's self!  And don't say where's the freakin smile?  Just don't.  *sigh*

ANON:  you be a smart arse then!  lol

End of Day: A good day.  Keera was fairly unsettled tonight, so hopefully Lacy gets some sleep tonight!
nite nite.


  1. Cute way of picking puppy names :) Good luck with the immunisations! Jaynie has her 15 month ones today...

  2. I like the idea of Disney character names for the puppies....lots of cute choices for girls and boys. (I wish I had thought of that).
    A buddy system sounds like a great way to work on the weight loss.

  3. Good luck to both Jo and Lacy with their babies' immunisations, glad I don't have to do that today!

    Chris, well done on the weight loss renewed efforts, that has to be helping your positive mindset too!

    Penny xo

  4. I was going to suggest biscuits/cakes ... TimTam,VoVo,Lamington, (they're aussie ones but I'm sure you have them or similar!)

    Good luck with the immunisations today. Essential but traumatic!!

    And a big well done on the quiet weight loss.

    I was going to suggest rugby players names or the like for the puppies. Cheers Glenys

  9. Brave Lacy, your hair looks nice, I like raspberry and echinaeca herbal tea lemon and ginger and strawberry n mango!! I don't like ordinary tea but will drink it if I have too.

  10. Nice hair. Hope the baby isn't too fussy! Good to hear Momma kept it together. Good luck with the names.
