Grandpa steps in


This weekend Dad and I had a spring braai to attend and Grandpa said he was up to the challenge of looking after both of you while we were out. To be honest we needed to get out alone for a bit but I really didn’t want to burden anyone because the 2 of you…

Missing in action


My Darling Hunter, It has been a while since my last post but even though I haven’t written about it there have been some really big moments over the last couple of weeks. Here are the highlights: My birthday came and went in a blur, but was absolutely wonderful I felt super blessed that day!…

A surprise for Grandpa


So we are away at the sea with Grandpa, after a long morning at thee beach you had just got out of the bath and I decided I would learn from our last experience of nappy rash and just let you run around without a nappy on for a while. You loved the idea and quickly went in search…

Under the weather


My Darling Hunter, The last couple of days really haven’t been the happiest for you and I can’t tell you how it hurts us to see you so sickly. In hindsight it all started on Saturday afternoon. We were out shopping for a new dummy because you have managed to literally annihilate your current one with those new…
