    Hello New people, and older people, have been absent for a while!! Would be keen for a catch up if one is being organised'!!

    @Ballerina, I know how you feel. I moved to Melbourne from N last October, it can be quite daunting for sure!! I also have a 2 year old ( she was 2 in march) It can be hard to meet new people for sure!

    @gonnabeagr8mum, Congratulatuions I think it will be nice having 2 close in age as well...but not to close! we are slowly TT as well. takes a lot more patience than I thought it would.

    @Willowmay- We went for a drive out to Mernda the other day as were trying to decide where we want to build our new house. Do you like it there? We are currently near the airport, and have been looking at Highlands, Mernda Villages and Caroline Springs.

    Hope everyone is well... Im counting down the weeks till Number 2 comes... 7 more weeks if on time!!

DD was 2 in feburary as well. we're only very midly introducing TT at the moment, she's shown little to no interest and i figured she (and I) didn't need the stress on top of the move. but i guess we'll have to get moving eventually Hubby is an industrial chemist (on the research side). I am a stay at home mum. how about you?
    Thats great it didnt take you as long this time round. It took us 7 months first time round so am hoping it might happen a bit quicker this time.
    What date in Feb is your little girl and what is her name? Mine was on the 11th and her name is Millie.
    Is it only around Point Cook that you are looking at places? Because of all the new houses there seems to be quite a high crime rate as the low lives are travelling from other suburbs to steal building supplies from the houses being built. We woke up on Saturday morning to an empty beer bottle that had been thrown through our window. Just so pleased it wasnt Millie's window. Must of been drunk kids on their way home as they did some damage to other houses along the street too.
    My husband is in the middle of training at the moment to be an Air Traffic Controller which is why we moved over here. Im a Flight Attendant but I dont have a job over here. The last flight I did was in March and I was flown back to NZ to fly Prince William around on his last visit. It was super exciting!!!

    Hi guys,

    I didn't grow up in Melbourne either, none of my friends here have kids. My first baby is due in November... Living in Caroline springs and missing my hometown like crazy- hormones!

    hi woody where is your home town? My DH is staying in Caroline springs at the moment as he tries to find us a house down there, he seems to like it and for all i know we could end up at your neck of the woods. I'm anticipating missing my friends and family terribly but i'm hoping i can remain positive for my DD and get out doing things and meeting new people ASAP. I'm expecting this bub will arrive sometime in Nov too, when is your EDD?


    Ballerina what a coincidence my DD's birthday is the 12th feb that sucks about the crime in point cook. thus far DH has looked at houses in point cook, seaholme, caroline springs, hillside and taylors lakes. we've got until the end of next week to have a house to move into before we run out of paid accomodation. so ETA oh and my DD's name is Elianna

    hannahrose TT is something i've never had ANY experience with, so i feel really out of my depth and i think DD knows it too...

    This May sound like a stupid question but would anyone around the Sunshine area Like to get together for a Play date. I am a stay at home Dad and would like to have my 19 month old son socialize with some toddlers the same age or a little older. At the moment he doesnt get to socialize much due to me being excluded from Mothers group because I'm a Dad.

    Hi Roofless. I'm in Sunshine, but my DS is only 5 1/2 months old, so probably not what you are looking for.
    I can't believe they won't let you join a group - that's terrible.

    hi there roofless, my DD is 26 months already so may be a bit beyond your DS but i'd be happy to give it a go once we get down there, can never have too many friends for the dear little ones thats crap that the mother's group isn't more accepting, i'd hate to think that if my Dh ever decides to be a SAHD that he'd have difficulty socialising our children due to crap like that. We're moving down end next week/begining of the week after so i'll be in contact after that if you're still looking for a play date.

    woody i'm just past 14 weeks too, and will be having this bub down there at sunshine hospital (long story about interstate booking in meaning not much choice but hopefully it'll work out fine). DD came 12 days late and was induced so i'm not holding out much hope for this one being on time, you'll probably beat me across the finish line
