Grace got to spend pretty much the entire day with Hannah today and they had lots of fun. When the end of the day did finally come there were a few tears and off Hannah went towards home. About five minutes later Grace starts crying and says, “I’m bored, and there is no one to play with!” Poor tired little girl – exhausted and missing her friend already.
Sand pit fun!
And to round off a busy party weekend, some fun in the sun at the park and riding a bicycle
Brother & sister swing time
The balancing act
And some much needed photos of Gogo and Gramps with the grandchildren
Certainly a most excellent weekend 🙂
The first day, he ate through one apple….
On Saturday he ate through….
(These are lime skins with jelly and chocolate drops for pips)
And after all of that, he ate some cake
Happy birthday Eli!
And then he ate some pizza
Cuddles from Aunty Keren
More sandpit toys!
I love tea!
Locked up in jail
Fun outside (thank you Lord for the good weather)
There will always be two things that we’ll remember on on the 20th of September, Eli’s birthday and Braai Master. Donné sat on the couch and watched TV while the contractions got closer together, and it was during Braai Master that it was suddenly time to head off to the hospital to meet our baby boy. And today he is one, special, precious and wonderful.
Getting some help from big sis to open those presents
He got sand pit toys so that he can enjoy his new sandpit (and a noisy book which he loves)
Having some fun with sissie on his first visit to the aquarium
And loving putting his hands in the water
Ice cream time…Grace got an ice cream, Eli got a cone (which he does seem to really enjoy)
But don’t worry, he also has a chance to eat some ice cream. Grace was 15 months before she had a chance to eat some ice-cream
Grace’s school outing for the last day of school was cancelled due to bad weather, so they had a pyjama day. One thing is for sure, getting her ready in the morning is much faster. She started her day in her pyjamas, went to school in them and had a play date in them.
Pyjamas ready to go!
Mom, I promise you, I’ll put these back when I’m finished looking through this drawer
Don’t mess with me when I’m eating pizza. Nom, nom, nom.
Eli is getting better at walking every day. One of the things that he loves is when we clap for him and say “Yay!” – he then claps along, very chuffed with himself. The video is from yesterday, and today he was letting go of things and walking nearly half way across the lounge.
Duncan: Grace, are you enjoying your lolly?
Grace: It’s not a lolly, daddy, it’s a lollipop
Duncan: Well Grace, the word lollipop is made of two parts, lolli and pop, so for short we can call it a lolly. It’s the same thing Grace, a lollipop is a lolly.
Grace: A lollipop….is a lollipop, daddy. In America, they call it a lolly, but in South Africa we call it a lollipop. And we’re South African, so it’s a lollipop.
