Christmas with Family 2014

Christmas Holiday Trip & Last Day of 2014!

Merry Christmas!! Better late than never right? Hope you all had a lovely time with family and friends 🙂

This past week has been crazy busy for us! We had a lovely Christmas holiday and now trying to get back into the swing of things – especially as this is the last day of 2014! It’s been an amazing year and I’m thankful to God for so many things this year! I’m also super excited about 2015 not just because Aj’s sibling is on the way but I also plan on using this maternity leave to re-evaluate a number of things in my life!

Without getting too introspective (something which always happens around this time of the year), here’s what we got up to over the holiday!

December Pictures and Happy New Year!

In the next few hours 2013 will be ‘all done’ and we’ll be making a fresh start in 2014!

2013 has been an amazing year and I’m thankful to God because He has been faithful! I know I’m blessed and that is that! I’m quite excited about 2014 and looking forward to the challenges and joys to come with it.

Before we end 2013 I thought I’ll add our december pictures, including a few from Anjie’s birthday and visits from family and friends. Thanks to everyone that came around and made Anjie’s birthday/Christmas awesome!! Love you guys!

Happy 2nd Birthday and Merry Christmas!!

I feel very very guilty I didn’t blog on the little Missy’s birthday last week! Been very busy with friends and family over, but just thought I’d drop a quick post!

We had another low keyed birthday for Anjie last week but of course we made a cake for her! It didn’t blow me away like the last cake but it was cute.

I’ll post some other pictures later on…

In the meantime, you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas!!!

Just wanted to say a Merry Christmas to everyone! A bit late but better later than never, right?

Hope everyone had a lovely day! We had some friends over for dinner. Wasn’t quite like Anjie’s birthday party which never was as family was missing but just some close friends and we had a lovely time!

And I’ve also got a backlog of pictures we took of Anjie on her birthday with her absolutely lovely cake from Sarah at Cupcake crumbs. I’d used her before for Abby’s Andriod birthday cake so I was confident she would do a fine job but she absolutely outdid herself! I found the cake image online and she replicated it amazingly. It was so pretty we didn’t want to cut it! But when we finally did the inside was just as lovely! White chocolate mud cake! Amazing! Have a look for yourself!

Anjie’s first sleep over

Yes yes, I know right! my little girl is already having sleep overs! I could cry right now… 🙂

It wasn’t anything major though. We had to attend Abby’s company Christmas party down south near Birmingham and it was going to be an overnight do. Seeing as Grandma had gone we had to think, should hubby go without me or could we drop Anjie off with someone..?

My Birth Story!! Warning Contains TMI

First of all! Here’s welcoming Baby AJ Omoniyi into the world! She made a gracious appearance on the 21st of December at 7.40pm weighing a good 8lb 5oz (3.77kg)!

It all started on my due date, 18th of dec when I had a bloody show (lost some mucus plug) – that was my first sign that labour was coming. But nothing happened except the normal period like cramps and a few contractions in between. (more…)

Full Term and Due This Month! Wow – 37 weeks

December 2011!!

Amazing… And just like that we’re getting ready for Christmas and the New Year! Well at least most people are… Us, we’re getting ready for the arrival of our little one! This year has been an amazing year and one I’m not going to forget in a hurry! I’m just thankful for getting to the last month and continue to pray for many more ahead…

So really since I’ve started my maternity leave what have I been up to? Not much! Well that’s not really true, I’ve been doing a bit of baby shopping, got some more clothes for the little missy, made her bed and all and started getting ready our hospital bed. Haven’t ticked everything off the list but we’re getting there :-). (more…)
