Such fun in the sun


So I have decided to stop the blog challenge – I am not one to count comments but I do like one or two on my posts and lately I am getting none and it does nothing for my fragile ego. Normal transmission will resume as of today and I will blog when I can – no content is better than bad content!

A quick update on whats been going on with us.

  • We have been napping – a lot. Most days the kids sleep for 2-3 hours and if we can we try nap with them. Today David and I had a glorious 3 hour nap with Jack. Such a treat.
  • My mom has been so great with the kids – they have been doing crafts almost every day – making all sorts of Christmas things. It’s almost like our Pinterest craft board came alive.
  • Jacks been acting up a little but I think it is a combination of his teeth and being out of his routine.ย IMG_2432
  • This 3rd trimester is kicking me in the butt. I have aches and pains all over!!! So frustrating because I want to be doing stuff with the kids and my mom but I get so sore so quickly. If I am upright too long it feels like the baby is literally going to fall out. NOT fun at all!
  • My Christmas shopping is done! I still need my brother and his wife’s gift but the later I get them the better actually.
  • Remember how I mentioned my bump was small? Well it popped! Nothing that fitted me when I left Joburg is fitting me so I am now wearing a combination of my moms clothes and stuff D’s mom found for me.
  • I am loving having David around 24/7. It has been a very stressful few months for him and so it is nice to see him chill a bit and just be with us.
  • We have had some fun days out – went berry picking (in the rain), caught some tadpoles and David and I had a whirlwind trip into Cape Town.
  • The weather has been great. There was one morning of rain but the rest of the time it has been lovely, clear skies and hot.

I think that’s about it for now ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope everyone is having a great holiday so far!!

    I know what you mean by comment-love!!
    I’m glad you’re resting. I’m very glad I’m not pregnant in the middle of summer (I had my last trimester in winter and it worked really well). My sister has just got here from Cape Town and is griping about our Durban weather in comparison… how rude!! ๐Ÿ™‚
