Granny D`s Visit


I can’t believe that 6 weeks has passed by so quickly but it was jam-packed with excitement and busy days with Granny D around. She quickly became apart of your routine and the 2 of you loved having you around, and of course so did we! I have included some of the adventures we had…

Sleepwalker


My Darling Hunter, About a week ago we had our first midnight scare. You were fast asleep in your big bed, and it had been going so well until one night, we heard you tossing and turning followed by a loud bang. Dad and I jumped out of bed and ran for your room, switched the…

Happy birthday Uncle Blake


Today your Uncle celebrated his 27th birthday, and we all got together for a day of celebrations while he showed off his cooking skills and made us a Jamie Oliver lasagna. Along with us came Marmite the stuffed toy dog…on a lead! You have been walking around with him for the last two days as…

Brrr much!


My Darling Hunter, This past weekend Winter reared his ugly head. Now your Granny and possibly Uncle Ryan would call this mild weather after the Winters that they have endured but here in SA we are not used to this weather at all. Especially after the beautiful Summer we had. Friday brought rain over night and…

An Autumn break


My Darling Hunter, This weekend was a long weekend…at least it was for Mommy. We had it all planned out perfectly until I got the dreaded call from Gogo on the way home from work. I could hear you crying in the background so a raced home to make the trip back to the hospital. Gogo…

A day at the Zoo


My Darling Hunter, Over the long weekend we had so much time at home that we decided to get out a bit, and the best place to go was the Zoo of course. It was your first experience seeing real live animals that were bigger than you, so we invited Grandpa and Uncle Blake and…

Family Saturday


My Darling Hunter, It has been long over due and eventually your Uncle Blake and Robs were able to come visit this weekend, so we planned an afternoon of fun with Grandpa to boot. Initially we had planned a picnic in the park, but unfortunately the weather didn’t play along, but it didn’t seem to damper…
