Bea and “…. no hats!”


Before Bea’s birth I crocheted this frog hat.

Now after more than a year I wanted to take photos of her wearing it.

No matter what you try

She just does not like anything on her head.

Baby talk: Bea is getting there!


It has been some time since I put on some photos. Time is passing so fast I can’t believe Beatrix is nearly walking on her own.

Here Bea drinks out of a glass.

Swimming goes very well.

She held her breath for five seconds under water!

Which is excellent and the goal of the sessions.

The best of all this weekend.

We visited the new home!

 

Baby Talk: Last babysitting 2017


I am way behind with my blogging. These photos are from last year, the Thursday before Christmas while Mum and Dad had their end of year party.

I’m putting the forms in the right holes!

Last Christmas together 2004

This was the last Christmas we were all together. My son left for New Zealand July 2005 and my mother passed away in July 2006. I am glad that I have this photo to look at when starting the festive season.

I am privileged to live in New Zealand since 2009. Also near my only son and his lovely family.

Out and about adventure.


My son and his wife are interested in purchasing a small holding(farm). Last Monday we went out and had a look at a huge piece of land with incomplete houses and buildings. Too expensive and too much to renovate and complete.

Yesterday, Saturday, I got a call: “Hi mum, would you be interested to have a look at the place we had visited two weeks before?”

I am always game for an outing. This time the realtor would unlock the place so that we could have a good look inside.

We were a bit early. The realtor turned up a bit after eleven. She climbed over the wooden fence. Looked around and could not find the key. Bertus and Stella also climbed the fence to have a look for the key. They decided to put Bea’s push pram and Bea also on the other side.

Then came the best part!

I had to climb the fence too! At first, I could not even pull myself up to try and get my leg over to the other side. Then we decided that I should try the corner of the gate which was more stable. It helped. I could get up and my one leg over but I could not turn my other foot to get my other leg over the fence. I had to use my foot that was on the other side to push the other one around to get my leg over. Wow, at last, I landed on the other side. Bertus helped me from the outside and Stella from the inside.

We walked around the paddock. The next door cattle were looking at us in interest as if they could not believe their eyes!

I did not walk all the way around the whole piece of land. The lady found the key and we went inside. We took chairs outside and sat in the shade for Bertus and Stella to return.

Back again after a long hot walk. I enjoyed relaxing in the shade, very tranquil and peaceful.

Baby Talk: Babysitting Bea


Last night I had a special night with Bea. Mummy and Daddy went to the movies and we had to stay home.

The first thing was eating dinner. On the menu: fish, potatoes and asparagus. The asparagus did not go down well! Then time for her bottle with milk. Bea’s eyes started to close but she kept on drinking. After finishing her bottle she was wide awake again.

We had a good time together. I loved every moment of looking after Bea.
