Potty Training Again – How are we doing?

1 word? AMAZING!!

This is something we’ve battled for a long time! The first time we thought to do it was when madam pooed on her bed! As you can imagine that didn’t go very well! We’ve been trying potty training on and off since then but it just hasn’t quite worked – and me being the awesome chilled out mother that I am, I decided not to push it 🙂

A couple of weeks ago we decided to re-introduce the potty over the weekend, however, we were away all Saturday so we only did it on Sunday. We had like a 10% success rate out of what seemed like a 100 chances! Needless to say it wasn’t fun.

Not to be panicky and all, but I was conscious of the fact that December was getting closer and my daughter wasn’t getting any younger so I knew this was something we had to do soon!

Growing up and moving on – Anjie at 25 months

First of all, happy anniversary to us! Abby and I got married this time 3 years ago, or as a friend of mine would say – 3 years don waka pass … It’s been awesome, fun, amazing, crazy, annoying, hilarious, blessed, fruitful, grateful, grace-filled, enlightening, eye-opening… (I could go on really) but in all, I’m so blessed to be married to this wonderful man I call my husband who never cease to amaze me in so many different ways and it’s even more exciting to know our best days are ahead of us… Amen!

Our traditional wedding

Alright! Moving on before I get too mushy mushy and burst into a song!

I thought I’d just talk generally about life with our 25 month old missy, with loads of pictures of course – Something I haven’t done in a bit!

Help, My daughter is becoming a DIVA

I knew this day would come, but I didn’t think it would be this soon!

Since winter is coming and all, hubby and I thought it was time we get a new winter jacket for Anjie since she’s outgrowing her old ones. We went into town and got a nice red winter jacket thinking she would look gorgeous in it and couldn’t wait for her to wear it.

Biting – Let the ‘Training’ begin

Now there’s this bad habit Anjie has picked up, among others of course, but this one just takes the cake – Biting! Now if she did this to just us, it wouldn’t be okay, but we could live with it, but noooo, she has to do it to the other kids in her nursery too! Now that is just plan wrong…


Lets go to the beach…

So I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like primarily because I’ve been busy with a number of projects here and there plus office work is getting pretty hectic! Most times when I get home I don’t want to see another screen! But anyway, enough with the excuses (as usual!), I’ll just get on with it!

So a couple of weeks ago when we still had the glorious sunshine (as I am writing this, we haven’t had much sunshine for about a week – is summer over?) we thought it would be a great idea to take Anjie to the beach. It turns out we are we have a number of beaches not to far from us, about 30 mins to an hour to get to a couple of them. So off we went to on a nice Saturday afternoon…

It was a disaster!

17 months! Where has my baby gone!

So my Anjie baby turns 17 months today! I honestly don’t know where the time has gone! This past few months have been pretty busy for me too – work and all, but hopefully everything should have settled down now! That is my excuse for not updating my blog as often as I would have liked over the past few months… But to more interesting news, what have we been up to?


Happy 2nd Anniversary and Valentine

So the 12th was our 2nd wedding anniversary… I’m just thankful to God for how far His brought us in this union! It’s been such a wonderful ride and I know this is just the beginning… Here’s to many more years together babe!

Also, Anjie made us a lovely valentine card at nursery which I just had to share!


Hope you all had a lovely valentine with your loved ones!!

New Nursery, Breastfeeding, Sleeping and other things

Happy February everyone! This is one of my favorite months! (Although not sure Abby would agree with me!) Not only is it my birthday month AND Valentine’s, it’s also our wedding anniversary month! It doesn’t get much better than that…:D

So we’ve been settling nicely into our new home and my new job although the lack of Internet bit hasn’t been great. We’re getting to know North Wales a little bit more and really it is such a lovely country with lots of wide open countryside! We’re definitely looking forward to the summer here! But what else have we been up to?


Getting closer to December, Birthday and Christmas!

So we’ve been really quite busy at home… so busy I haven’t had time blog! Shame on me… Work is getting pretty busy plus we’ve had family over a bit. That’s right, Anjie has met another one of her cousins from her dad’s side! And yes, it is official, Anjie loves babies and kids. It was lovely to watch her play with her cousin Jayden, his a month younger than her though so she was doing more of the playing but it was great 🙂
