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.

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.


Some pics to show what my lively little girl has been up to in the past few weeks.

4 September:
Spot the prettiest flower in Langebaan. (Hint, she’s wearing a pink hat.)

5 September:
Totally pulling off the just-out-of-bed look.

18 September:
How to do your shopping on a cold day.

6 August:
Helping mommy in the garden.

24 September:
Daddy bought the T-shirt. “If I you think I’m cute, wait till you see my brother!”

14 October:
Whoops, I need a quick bath after I threw up. Feeling much better now!

24 October:
Just the hat to finish off this outfit, mommy!

19 November:
Off to swimming lessons. I’d better look cute enough for the both of us, since my pregnant mommy sure isn’t helping..

Her mommy is currently considerably less energetic. I’ve been very tired throughout the 2nd trimester, which was very unexpected. With my little girl, I had an awesome second trimester and I even remember feeling very well throughout the third trimester (which by the way started today for this pregnancy!).

These are my favourite holiday pics, all taken in the Kruger Park. Hmm.. wait, they all happen to be of my baby angel, someone who has according to my darling husband definitely surpassed her mommy in beauty! Guess I can’t argue, hey?

Most of the footage I took of animals are also really footage showing my ‘babaliefie’ looking at animals through the car window.

How times have changed. How we love things the way things are now.
