I am thrilled to finally be able to say that at last Nothando is out of hospital and looking much better. She is full of smiles now.   Little Jacquie is still in hosptial but we have been assured that it will only be a matter of days before she is also home with us.  This is Nothando below.
We currently have 5 babies, plus 3 toddlers in our offices and it sure does make for some interesting times.  It is so hard to concentrate when you know that just a few feet away is a baby just waiting for you to come and play.  Awakiwe is back, she has to go to the clinic tomorrow.  She spent some time with us last week and I LOVED having her here.  We would take little walks together each other and she would talk to me in Ndebele and me to her in English but somehow we were able to understand each other.  As you can see by the photo she is a real little character. 

Chanelle is also still with us.  She is eight months old and was staying with me for a while.  She is one of my favourites and I knew that I had to bring her back before she was firmly entrenched in our family and it became impossible for us as a family to hand her back.  Now I have the best of both worlds.  I get to spend as much as time as I like with her but don't have to change dirty nappies and have sleepless nights.
Philip is also still with us.  He is our only little boy at the moment.  He is really spoilt.  It is hard not spoil him....he is just so darn cute!!!
And finally that's little Susan above...she was also very ill but now blooming.  Susan has a terrible temper and wants everything done NOW!  She can really make herslf heard when she is not happy about something.  It's a cry that can wake the dead.
Well that's about it folks.  Time to pick up my daughter from Des' and then go home and cook supper. 


  1. They are all looking so good. Can't wait to come back and see them again. Chanel looks like a different baby.

  2. How would you feel about another niece...I do love Chanelle!!

  3. I love babies as well doesn't mean I want another one!! Just enjoy them and then give them back :))

  4. That's right. There comes a time in every woman's life when she has to say I have enough!!
