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....
