28 weeks 4Dscan

{Above: Of her face. sucking her thumb i think with left arm by her head}

The cutest little thing. This scan really hit home and made this whole pregnancy more real. To see her face on a 4D scan is crazy. She kept her hand infront of her face until we poked her a bit and she allowed the sister to capture her face.

Her one foot was right by her head, these little one are flexible!

It’s a miracle and just awesome. How can anyone not believe there is a God when something like this is made from a microscopic sperm and egg. Truly marvelous.

It’s a …

So most of you know we having a baby girl!! We are super excited. The animated baby picture is an example of what it look like at week 23.

They say ‘ Baby is approximately 28cm and this week begins the rapid growth of baby’s brain and brain cells which will ultimately control her breathing and all other vital functions. The pigment that colours your baby’s skin is being deposited this week. Your little one has a bit of a wrinkled appearance right now, as skin is developing faster than fat. You may be feeling more active movement lately, as your baby’s busy moving her fingers, toes, arms and legs on a regular basis.’

Interesting!

We are & now 27 weeks!!! So baby is the size as the picture below.

They say ‘Your baby is about the size of a kitten now and covered in thin, shiny skin. Did you know? Baby’s have more taste buds at birth than they do later in life as newborns are able to sniff out and tell the difference between their mother’s milk and someone else’s.’

1st Evening in Spain – 21st Dec 2011

I’m sorry these Spain pics have taken a while to be posted. Our photos got lost when our laptop and camera was stolen a few weeks after arriving back in SA. I then had to get some back from Stacey (luckily she copied most of them and she had her own) So here they are!

On arrival in Spain, we all had some fun setting up the Christmas tree. Kids went a little mad (Kiara and Kyle) and the adults relaxed with a glass of vinotinto.

…And then they (the kids) collapsed!

Head in the clouds

These photos were taken on our Spain trip. What an amazing sight to see. God’s view. Pilots must see the most beautiful colours and cloud formations…Lucky them!

We had a few plane journeys on the trip, some I would never like to go on again. But this was a peaceful and welcoming flight, just like the scenery.

Potjie

A few weekend back, Jono decided to make his lentil soup into a lentil potjie. It was delicious after trying for the 2nd time (long story) Mom and Werner enjoyed it. It was a beautiful warm-nearly-spring evening. next time you all going to join us.
