Number Two

Say hello to our latest addition of the family. Yes, we are expecting again! Twelve weeks into it, and the little one is already waving at us through the ultrasound. Very comfy it was moving around, clearly enjoying to be watched.
The news may come hardly as a surprise, since we’ve always wanted a second one. But its gonna be a big change. In particular for Nora, who will soon be a big sister. A role that will fit her just fine, as she loves to boss around others. Our little bubs will need to have some balls to stand up to her. But for now the little peach is still calm and peacefully enjoying mummy’s womb. Which it will keep doing until early October, if all goes to plan.
Meanwhile mummy has been enjoying morning sickness, food intolerance, nausea and all other typical symptoms of what is supposed to be the best period of her life. Aren’t you jealous?
PS. Bets are on. What do you think: boy or girl?

Nora's second birthday

Hurray hurray, Nora turned 2 years old today!!! Can you believe how quick it all went? She’s a true little lady now. We got the princess a mini-kitchen, so she can cook up her own dish when things get overheated. See here how she woke up to the surprise.

Of course this birthday called for celebrations. Yesterday we had some of her best little friends over for a barbie (BBQ). Despite the rain, or perhaps thanks to the rain, Nora had a ball with Caleb, Arwen, Sterre, Tristan and little Myles.  Parents under the covered pergola (thanks again Grandpa), and the kids splashing around in the rain. Perfect!

Mum and Dad are ever so proud, but a little nervous as well. Our little girl now officially entered her “terrible two’s” and knowing her full-on character, she will probably make sure that we’ll never forget this age ;-)

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes and the great presents. Nora loves it all!

One day visitor

We’ve had visitors from Europe staying over for three months, or three weeks or even just three days. But nobody came over for just a day ... until now. This weekend we welcomed Maarten, a good friend and former colleague of Jan.  He had business in Sydney and hopped across to Adelaide just for a day. Armed with a softy Kangaroo he won over Nora’s heart, did the Barossa wine tour, had the Aussie home BBQ experience and hit the town for the Fringe theatre festival.
Dear Maarten, this couldn’t have been a better day. Everyone who makes it to us in Aussie is a hero, but doing it just for one day makes you a legend!
