Two Cute!

Bath time with Levi and Lara is always fun but especially tonight when Lara started giggling at Levi's antics! Lara is 5 months now and is such a contented lil bubba. She has started eating food and gobbles the lot like a little piglet! We feel so incredibly blessed to have two of Gods beautiful children in our care! But now enjoy your viewing and we'll blog again soon!
Love Lots xxx

Guess Who

Just a little post today of the two little munchkins on their respective baptismal days! 
Levi is the 1st photo and Lara the 2nd - Levi wore the Eilander baptism dress and Lara a dress from Aunty Trudy Hart which was made from Mum Reitsemas wedding dress! Love all the sentimental stuff so was very excited to find that there was a dress from Des' side with a story :) We had a beautiful day surrounded by our family and friends, praise be to Him for his covenant grace and the many blessings he continues to shower on us! 
Love to all xxxxx

Its a girl!

We welcomed LARA EVE Reitsema into the world on September the 7th via C-Section weighing 6lb4oz and measuring 50cm long! Lara is doing beautifully and we are truly loving being able to do it all 'normally' this time!! Levi is adjusting well and although he is acting out a bit when mum doesn't come straight away he loves kissing and cuddling her and holding his 'bubba' :) Mum and Dad R came to stay and she was my little gift from above letting me recoup while she looked after us all! My BP is slowly getting better and i'm on half my medications now- God is good!! We have been once again blown away by everyones generosity whether in meals, looking after Levi, gifts, cards, texts thoughts and prayers and want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! For now enjoy a few piccies of our little poppet- there will be many more to come im sure!! :) Love Lots xoxoxox

Just Showing Off Really!!!

It's true! I am now 36 (!) weeks pregnant!! We are so thankful to our Heavenly Father for making all things well and although we experienced a nearness to Him like never before with the birth of Levi we are so grateful that we can experience this preganacy like a 'normal' couple :) Because of my pre eclampsia history we have had 4 weekly scans and weekly appointment from day dot. To be honest I feel like a bit of a fraud considering it's going so well but on the up side it was awesome to see him/her in the ultrasonic flesh that often! :) My BP has just started to creep up but really- who cares!! We have made it this far that anything else is just a bonus!! Looking forward to expereincing labour and seeing what my body can do- i am sure post delievery i will not be saying 'looking forward to' for any potential births thereafter but hey, innocence is bliss! :) So for now here are a few pics taken begrudgingly by Dessy (Baaabbbbe this is so dumb!!!) so lap up the evidence of this 'one big fat pregnant and loving it mumma' :) Love to all xxxxxx

Love Hollybank so we had to visit it again! Even though this time we went it was the second day of winter we could still 'frolick' through the leaves :)

Levi's Second Birthday!

I knnooowwwww! I have been seriously slack on the blogging front, not to mention i couldn't access it for months but ANYWAY i think we're on a winner now! What better way to start afresh my blogging life with Levi's second birthday celebrations! Can't believe it was 2 years ago we held our little man in our palms (!) and now he is 10kg and a BIG SHMUCK!! :) He was totally overwhelmed with his party and had the motto of 'it's my party and i'll cry if i want too' going on but besides that WE all had a good time! :) Thankyou to all our family and friends for being such a special part of our lives- God bless you all!

The Train Cake!

He got a shiner two days before, true boy style :)

Un-impressed with the birthday HOORAY! (mum loved it though :)

Blow baby blow!

Some of the party animals!

Levi's 'gf' Eliza LOVED the cake! :)
