Our Baby Boy is Sick

Hi All,

What a day it has been.

The day started off normlly with everyone feeling fine, we went to Pretoria East hospital to see Sharon (my colleague) who just recently had her baby.

All was well until 14:00 pm when Ethan started to cry, I thought he was just over tired and wanted to sleep, well little did I know. After him crying for an hour, I then started thinking something was wrong. I gave him panado and buscopan because I thought he was cramping.

Eventually, I rushed him to the doctor because everything I did never calmed him down. The doctor took a look at his ears and in his throat and immediatly said that He has tonsillitis & middle ear infection.

Our baby boy was in so much pain he even battled to feed. The doctor precribed some antibiotics and ear drops to numb the ears. He is now resting for the first time and he seems much calmer. Please pray that Ethan makes a speedy recovery.

Well enjoy the rain and your evening.

God Bless
Love Us

Injections & Tears!

Hi All,

Just a quick update tonight....

Today Ethan went for his first vaccinations and boy was it heartsore. He was smiling at the Sister just before she stuck the needle in his leg, then his smile turned to such a sad face with tears streaming down his cheeks. I was almost in tears, I wish I could take all nthe vaccinations for him but I know its for the best and its his protection against all the "baddies" out there.

On the positive side, Ethan is doing so well, he now weighs 5.7kg and is 57 cm in length, he is growing so nicely.

Hannah had an absolute ball with her nanny today, she kept her so busy. Hannah is such a busy baby girl, but thats the way we prefer it by far.

Anyway, have a fantastic week and may God bless you all.

What we have been up to!

Hi All,

It has been such a long time since I posted something on the blog. I am not much of a writer but I certainly will try to write an exciting post, ha ha!

Well where do I start................

Hannah is getting so big, I can't belive she is 22 months already, we will be celebrating her 2nd birthday very soon. She has learn't so much and continues to entertain us with her bubbly personality. Hannah is starting to string words togther to make sentences, her favourite line at this time is: Where is daddy ( or anything else she is looking for)?.. She has also learn't new words, here they are: Sleeping, kiss, toys and bum....

Hannah has finally left the dummy, she has not had her dummy for 5 days now and its going well, she no longer asks for it. We are so glad that this transition went so well. We attempted potty training but stopped for a bit because she became very frustrated. We are going to start trying again soon. We will keep you updated on the progress.

Ethan is also growing so well. He stared to smile and is starting to chat. He is such a peaceful and content baby. He is such a pleasure and an absolute blessing. One thing i can say is that boys are definately a lot different to girls, i am sure i will see that even more as Ethan grows up. We are so blessed to have a pigeon pair, best of both worlds.

We have been out and about, visiting Granny & Grandpa and just enjoying family time. I go back to work in a months time and I already know i am going to miss the children so much. I am going to treasure this last month at home with my babies before I return to work, time really flies. Its amazing how one takes time for granted. time is not on anyones side. I am learning to appreciate the time I spend with my family, Hannah & Ethan are growing so fast, I am scared I miss something.

Anyway, we would like to wish Samm, Mark & Deqlan the best of luck as they start on this new journey that lay before them. They are an incredible family. Deqlan is the most amazing, brave, happy, clever little boy we have ever met. We have learn't so much from this little boy. We are walking this road with you guys, always know you have God on your side helping make the best possible decisions for Deqlan. We know you will get through this with flying colours. Keep the positive attitude and keep your faith, there will be tough days but as a close fmaily unit, you can conquer anything. We are so proud to say that we have you guys as friends.

Hope you all have a stunning week and may God bless you all in abundance.

Love Us
