About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna (15) and Angelee (12) and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. 3 years ago our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! "Love in Action" is our journey as a family to love the way Jesus is teaching us to love and live.

9 Weeks Along Now

Today marks the start of my 9th week of pregnancy. It's been so long since I was pregnant that I've had to go back to finding out exactly where baby's growth is at. Thank goodness for Google ;0) It is so exciting to see my body beginning to change and show signs of being pregnant. I can honestly say that I am counting down the next 3 weeks so that the nausea will pass ... but thats just par for the course I guess. This time around I am loving being able to teach my girls how baby is developing. They cannot get over how small the little one still is. My 10 year old so often comes to rub my barely-there tummy and is already speaking words of love to her baby sibling. It melts my heart. My 6 years old daughter lay on my tummy singing to "the baby" as she calls him or her. It is such an exciting time for them. Handsomeness is convinced that its a boy ... but we met a new family in church this week that has 6 daughters. The look on his face was priceless ;0) Who knows ... it could be another beautiful darling girl :0) We go for the next scan in 4 weeks time and our Doc says he should be able to tell us. Either way we are over-the-moon. We are SO EXCITED!!! 
Well ... this tired pregnant fairy is off to sleep.
Sweet dreams dear friends. 
Love Jan xxx

Awwww, this post makes me so happy! I am SO glad you're enjoying this process of babykins growing. This is so exciting & I am happy to go along the ride with you for the next 7 months!!

Also, I wanted to tell you that (since you are a follower of mine; was Love & Life now champagne wishes.) I have had some issues with my new blog set up, tried to create a new one under the same account with similar issues so I have created a new account under a new e-mail address & I wanted to make sure I tell all of my followers so if you follow me at http://melissa-champagnewishes.blogspot.com that would be so greatly appreciated! I will (when I get to it) unfollow you from my old account which I won't use anymore and re-follow you with my new one(this one)! Thanks again! Have a great week! xo melissa

At the age of 50 + :), my hubby would absolutely love it if I fell pregnant and had a daughter. No way.... say I! He has 4 sons from his previous marriage and of course, I have my two - so between us = 6 boys (can you imagine, my luck it will be another boy lol) Hope the nausea subsides and the outcome of (sex) is a good one - boy or girl !
