jy’s so lig en so lag
so giggeltjies en kielietjies
so dartelende skoenlapper-lappertjie

jy’s so lief en so lig
so feëtjies en fyntjies
so besige klein bytjie

met jou nuuskierige, ronde dimpeltjie-handjies
met die sagte veertjie-raampie om jou blinkoog gesiggie
met jou sleep-sleep kombersie-stertjie
met jou wippetie foppietjie soos ‘n veldmuisie se neusie

klein sterretjie
klein varkie parkie
pikkewyntjie
kaalvoetkleintjie

vir jou het ek so lief so lief

After a wonderful December holiday, I’ve had to put on my big girl panties for 2012! (And not only due to my mother’s excellent cooking or my growing preggie belly..)

I’ve now been a single, pregnant (33 weeks at the moment), working mom for more than 2 weeks. Do I need to mention that it’s been tough? Fortunately my sweet MIL is soon coming to stay with me. We get along very well and my little girl adores her.

Looking at December photies of my ‘baby’, I realized that I my chubby little baby angel is no longer. She is now a delightful, lively little girl and of course at times a real handful!

My little lady (10 December):

The only bike I ever want to see her on! (10 December):

Surf’s up! Loving the ocean.

Bye, bye, my darling baby angel. Hello, sweet little lady.

Shame, my little darling is missing her daddy terribly and keeps on asking where he is. There’s a sadness in her little soul and I suppose she doesn’t know whether she’ll ever see him again.

I miss him so much too.

Without him, the world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers
– from Les Miserables

I have so many posts in my head, but whenever I sit down in front of my home computer, a pair of tiny hands find their way unto my keyboard and starts ‘helping’ with the typing. I’ve actually had to restart the poor confused machine once or twice after my little angel enthusiastically tried to help mommy write emails.

I hope to soon (enough) tell more in a next post of how DH and I are reinventing our lives this year. Some tough times ahead, some exciting times ahead..

All the best to you all for a fabulous 2012.
