10 months old

Hello all of Mommy's lovely internet friends.

Wow, what a difference a month makes, Mommy says that all of a sudden I became a little boy.

1st of all the yucky stuff. I went for injections and the nice nurse measured and weighed me. She said I was very tall, 77cm's and Mommy said that she was sure I was going to weigh lots, 11.3kgs. The nurse said to Mommy I'm nowhere near fat, thank goodness, she said that 77cms and 11.3kgs matches perfectly. Mommy kept getting all teary about something called the 25th percentile and now being over the 97th percentile. Whatever Mom, I'm the one that had a needle stuck in my leg!

Now for the cool stuff. I can walk. I don't give Mom a chance take photo's though, I'm was too quick, and by the time the camera takes a photo all you see are bits of me.

I don't like to sit in my pram anymore. I can stand...

I can even touch my toes. Mommy and Daddy have heart failure when I do this, hahahahahahahaha. They say I'm going to crack my skull open.
I love to clap handies, whenever I do something clever. I shout YAY, and clap my hands as loud as I can. Daddy said there is something very special about my subtlety skills. Mommy said she'll brain Daddy if he teaches me sarcasm at this young age.

I really like to sit in the office when Mommy works. They don't seem to understand that I'm the boss though.

Something new happened to my face, and it's causing me serious grief. Mommy calls it mischief. I don't know what it is, but somehow they always know that I'm going to something naughty.

I love the Christmas tree, but I hate the stoopid hat they bought me. I mean really! Only Santa wears a hat like that!!!!
Mommy said I should say cheese when I smile for the camera, I took it literally and put some cheese in my mouth. I really don't understand why it was soooooo funny.

That's all my news for now, I will keep you all updated about my 1st Christmas, I am very excited.

Lots of love,

Lazy... or Uninspired?

I don't know what it is, I'm in a funk, I haven't been updating either of my blogs, I haven't been whipping up culinary masterpieces, think spaghetti bolognaise and boerewors and chips here, and there are less than 40 days to Christmas, and I'm just not feeling it.

Everything else is just a minor thing, I guess we all go 'off' our passions once in a while, but not feeling Christmas? That's ludicrous!

I've put a Christmas countdown timer on my blog, and I think I'll put up my Christmas tree tonight. Perhaps it'll inspire some get up and go...

Jayden, Jordan and the Get Together

This is late, but I suppose better late than never...

Where to start, we drove up to good old JHB for the OPM get together. It never ceases to amaze me, how you drive out of the Eastern Cape, aka, crappy roads and into another world as you cross the border. Jordan travelled well all things considered. It was hot, he hates his car seat and I think he can feel my apprehension when driving.

I couldn't believe how much my other son has grown. He is just to beautiful for words. I think Marthie and I have the best of both worlds with our boys, I have the dark haired dark eyed second son in Jayden and she has the blonde haired blue eyed second son in Jordan. Putting them together and watching them play gave us both a snippet into the future and I think we desperately need to find a no grow potion Marts, because I think there could be a couple of grey hairs on the way with these two.

I'm convinced after the two boys spending the majority of the weekend together, that babies speak an unknown language. Jordan has not been interested in any form of horizontal transportation. Crawling, leopard crawling and the like are, or were, just not for him. After spending the night and day with his 'brother' he decided that he kinda liked this head crawl worm wiggle that Jayden did, and began doing the same thing and at one hell of a speed might I add.
The get together was awesome, it was wonderful to finally put so many faces to the people I talk to everyday. My only regret is that I didn't get time to talk to so many of you, nor did I have the quality time I wanted with some of my closer friends. I found the whole lot a little overwhelming, but next time I will definitely be able to divide my time more evenly I think....

Thanks to Marts and Craig for being my JHB taxi. Mands, Irene, Paula and significant others who spent time with us on Friday night a beeg thank you. To Jahni and Karien, I'm sorry I didn't get to spend more time with you ladies and your delightful baby girls, next time I'll make 100% sure that we have some 1 o 1 time.
Oh, and my future daughter in law is delightful, scrumptious and too beautiful for words, I hope our kids don't mind arranged marriages....
