An Update, Finally!

Hi Everyone,

I finally have the time to just sit and update our blog. Sorry it has been so long but with a newborn baby and a bouncy 21 month old, you don't really get time to do these little things but i promise that I will try my best to keep the site as up to date as possible.

What an exciting time we have had over the last two weeks. We have had a ball plying and shopping and visiting granny an celebrating NATIONAL BRAAI DAY! Hannah has been so busy lately but i am not complaining as I know she is fine then!

Last weekend (21 September) we spent the weekend at home relaxing and just being together. Stephan & Hannah had an absolute ball in the garden, Stephan put our fountain up in the garden and Hannah thought this was great fun and joined in by playing in the water and mud. On the Sunday she helped her daddy wash the cars, boy was this an experience. She was soaking wet from head to toe and she was getting so cold but she insisted on being outside in the water. SHe is definately a water baby. Last week we had such great weather that Hannah spent nearly everyday playing in the water in the garden. She loves being outside and she loves water!

On Wednesday ( Heritage Day) we had a braai at a friends house, they have 2 little girls and a little boy that is just 6 weeks older than Ethan. Hannah had such a great time playing with her friends. They ended the day by bathing together and by eventually falling asleep together. It was such a wonderful day. Ethan had a bad day as he was suffering from cramps, i have now bought him some medicine for the cramping and it seems to be going much better! He is growing so fast, I weighed him last Monday and he weighed 4.1kg and he was 55 cm in length. I am not sure what his weight is now but i am sure he has done some growing.

This weekend we spent the weekend with Granny. Granny loves spending time with the kids. On Saturday when we arrived at Grannys house, Hannah couldn't wait to greet Oupa & Granny and ofcourse to run around in their very big garden, she loves it by Granny's house because she has so much space outside to just run around and so many pretty flowers to pick from Oupa's garden (ssshhh, don't tell Oupa). She wasted no time by dragging granny to the pool and getting Granny to hold her hand while she splashed on the stairs in the pool and had a swim, it is impossible to keep Hannah away from water. After all that excited, Hannah had an early night an slept well. On Sunday we had a braai and my brothers were there with my nephews, Hannah ahd a ball by running around and playing with the boys. She was exhasuted when we drove home but refused to sleep in the car, she waited until we got home before she would even think of sleeping! What a great weekend it has been!

Hannah is starting to string words together to make sentences: She says: Where is mummy (this is her dummy). Her new words that she is saying is: Car, please, fine thanks, lion, hippo. She is growing up so quickly and learning so many new things everyday, it is amazing how time flies.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed the update. Will be posting soon again.

Have a great week and God bless you all!

All our love

Claire, Stephan, Hannah & Ethan
