My little man is no longer a baby!

Junior turned 1 over the weekend…

I still can’t believe it if I’m honest! I kept checking to make sure the date was right! I know I say it all the time but this year really is flying by too quick!

It was also my birthday on Sunday so we figured we’d kill two birds with one stone and make life easier for us all. It’s not like Junior is going to remember his first birthday anyway, right?


February! My Favourite Month in the Year!

We’re in February! This is my favourite month in the year because I have sooo much to be thankful for this month! This also tells me the year is well and truly under way, especially as it seems like we just celebrated Christmas!

So what’s so special about February? This post is dedicated to my new-ish readers who don’t really know much about me – yet!


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!

My Dancing Princess & Happy birthday to Me

So Thursday was my birthday! I’m thankful for another year with my wonderful family and I thank God for how far He has brought me… I have a wonderful husband, beautiful and happy daughter, great job, what more could I ask for! I’m happy and thankful!

And finally, I’ve got a video my dancing baby girl! Without further ado, I give you Groovy Anjie!

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!


Happy 1st birthday to Anjie

Happy birthday to my darling and sweetie-bo Anjie!

Can’t believe it’s been a year already. I’m so thankful to God for how far He has brought you and I know this is just the beginning, your best days are ahead of you my love. Mummy and daddy and all your family love you so much! God bless you, keep you and protect you all the days of your life…



Anjie’s first Birthday Party

Last weekend was a pretty busy weekend for us. Anjie had her first birthday party, the celebrant was a year old so is a ‘friend’ of hers and we went down to Newcastle for a baby dedication (babies babies everywhere!). So it was pretty fun! After the whole busy weekend it got me thinking what I wanted to do for Anjie’s first birthday…


Happy birthday to My Husband, Anjie’s Daddy!

Today is my hubby’s birthday and Anjie and I agreed that since she hadn’t started talking she’d have a customised t-shirt to say ‘happy birthday’ to the most important man in her life! So this was what she got for her daddy!



Hubby absolutely loved it!

His other birthday gift was another obsession of his…


Happy birthday to Me and Anjie turns 2 months!

Happy birthday to me! Well technically it was yesterday but better late than never, right??

As expected we didn’t do much! Had some chicken and chips and went to the salon to get my hair done! That was all! But on the plus side my new phone arrived! Anjie’s taking up this year’s celebrations so far. That includes Christmas, New Year, Valentine and my birthday! Oh well we’ll have a lot to celebrate when she turns one! A bit of our independence!!! 😀

Here’s a picture of Anjie at 2 months, in jeans! You go booboo…


I’ve finally signed up for some baby classes starting end of this week so that should be fun! Will write about it once I’ve attended a couple!

Enjoy the rest of the week…
