Brave girl

Last Thursday, we took our munchkin for her third shot to the baby clinic. I wrestled with the thought of going with her to the clinic. I'm not the bravest of all when it comes to Sarah. The shots she has received so far her daddy has played the bigger role of the two of us. Last month when we took her I cried from home to the clinic and back. I cried more than our little one. Just the thought of her being in pain breaks my heart and the emotions and tears can't be contained within.
She had just woken up. I love this face.When I kiss her before I pick her up, she gives me the most gorgeous smile :)

She had just woken up
  Bath time, her favorite time ever.

 So Wayne had to drive all the way back from work to take us to the clinic and drop us off at home then go back to work. He basically took three hoursoff from work and I'm so grateful.

On our way

Arriving at the baby clinic
  Sarah is definitely a trooper and takes after her daddy when it comes to pain threshold. After her shot she cried for 2 seconds literally and was done. And her daddy cuddled her.

We are so blessed after we got into the car she fell asleep, the nurse warned us that she would have a temparature and be fussy but she was all good. Infact she was herself , smiled as usual and was very pleasant to be around as usual. She has definitely picked up weight and is now a whopping 5.8kg.
We take her in a month for the next appointment and this time she will receive two shots . I'm not looking forward to it. she is such a cutie and a joy to be around!!!

11 weeks old

Our precious Sarah is 11 weeks old today. Its unbelieveable that our little girl is growing so fast. She is smiling alot and getting very interactive. On saturday while wayne was trying to nap she went all out very vocal and making her baby sounds. It was so cute he just couldn't fall asleep.

 She is rolling alot more especially when I put her on tummy time. So we can't leave her alone on the bed anymore. She sleeps well and eats well too.She loves bath time!!!!! When it is time to get out of her bath, she screams when we take her out and I have had to put her back in the bath. I think she gets that from me, if I had my way I would shower the whole day.

I'm enjoying motherhood we have a perfect daughter.She is so pleasant to be around and I can't imagine our lives without her.

We cannot get enough of our precious daughter.

Our precious girl

Its been crazy since our little girl arrived, I thought I would catch up on blogging and update what we have been up to since October but at this rate I will miss out on what is happening now.
Weekends are fabulous, so are the week days but its because we have Wayne home  most of saturday with us.
I have really tried to get us to church on time, but what we have learnt is that everything is on Sarah's terms. Since we got back from Durban after christmas, sarah and I have been in time for sacramant 3 times!!
After church

Daddy's little girl

Including yesterday. Our little girl is growing so fast and has her mommy and daddy wrapped around her little finger.We love her to bits and are so grateful for her. She is such a joy to be around.

All Things in October

On the 8th Oct my dear friends Jenny and Soh, organised a surprise baby shower for us. I was really surprised, I'm usually clued up on what's going on but they managed to keep it top secret even my dear hubby kept it from me. We were spoilt, well Baby Cook was really spoilt. It was great to hang out with the ladies/friends from church. After the baby shower as I thought about the day, it came to mind that actually most of my friends are members of the church:)
The last time I went and watched my dear sweetie, play cricket was in April before we discovered we were expecting, then morning/all day sickness came along and I havent been able to attend any of his matches. he suggested I go with him for the game and since I will be moving to Durban that was the only chance I had. I agreed that I would go along with him, after doing some shopping for maternity clothes. He usually goes with John so we had to pick John on our way, when we got to John's house wayne said, "babe get out of my car now and enjoy your baby shower!" I was in so much shock.
It was wonderful to hang out and chat and laugh it went so well. I'm grateful for wonderful friends and the blessing they are to our family. i cant thank them enough.

I love her to bits -Jenny

I Love this lady to bits

The  little sister I never had :)

I have no idea what she was doing .... fun i guess!!!
And the shower we got home and headed out to watch Cold play. That is for another post altogether.

A wedding
 We had a wedding to attend Wayne was presiding over it. It was lovely a young couple Claudia and Chris very beautiful couple. The wedding ceremony and reception where held in the outskirts of town; such a beautiful place I have no idea how they found it.

My wonderful hubby :)
Me at 32 weeks my feet were so swollen, when we got to the wedding I was wearing high heels by the time we were half way my feet were on a different level luckily Wayne had carried flats for me, for just incase.
The stunning couple
I love weddings, It was great to be a part of one of their most important memories. the food and the decor was just wonderful.  It brought wonderful memories that I'm thankful for and just to realise and appreciate time. We are about to have a baby:). It just feels perfect like we are where we are meant to be

.I.'m so thankful for a wonderful husband I couldn't have been blessed with anyone better. I love you Wayne .

Visitng the Grand parents 28/10
We had to make one stop before we headed out to Durban till baby Cook arrived. Our weekends were fully booked, all we had was the last weekend of October to spend time with the grand parents.
 Sunday after church before lunch we took some pictures, I also figured out a new function of my camera, the picture turned out alright.
