^^ We got lost trying to find the entrance to Noodhoek beach, but we stopped to take a look at this view.

^^ walks on Noordhoek beach, on the hottest windiest day.  I’m getting really tired of having huge pores and sweating all the time.  Its way to hot here.

^^ The previous photo Carl had a Trump hairstyle going on thanks to the wind.  It was obscene!  but you would never tell by this photo.

^^ I asked Carl for a jumping photo, I forgot he somehow hurt his back while getting into bed and have been suffering from old person symptoms.  Maybe he’s just absorbing all my pregnancy symptoms I’m suppose to be having.

^^ We tried to have a picnic on Sunday, but the wind and heat was just too intense for us! We rushed home and tried to cool of by drinking a lot of iced water and regret making our outside fire for food grilling.

^^ Feeding pillow! Can you believe Carl sewed this together for me, while I took a nap! Obviously I’ve got a great little seamstress on my hands here.  I found this fabric and just loved it! I also found another orange-y African print fabric that I turned into little zipper pouches for my diaper bag.  I’ve been getting really tired of all the cutesy, kitchy things that people gift you when they find out your having a baby.  I don’t know why everything has to look so cheap and crap? or plastic? I’m so tired of seeing pooh bear things.  Also trying to find anything that’s really gender neutral in this country is near impossible! I’m trying so hard to have a low impact child on the environment, but yet people seem to think that includes giving me bottles that actually still contains bpa, toys that were banned in all the first world countries and diapers that I wont be using. FRUSTRATING! Oh well! Our donations pile is just getting bigger and bigger, most of the stuff we can’t even donate to orphanages, because they don’t even accept it!

^^ Beach walks

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  I can’t believe how soon it is till baby time.  I’m so eager to get this labour over with! I’ve actually been having a great pregnancy, but the anticipation that any day now labour can start is killing me!  I’m ready for my little baby!  Did anyone else feel like this during the end of their pregnancy?

    I feel the same way about people gifting me things, even though I don’t yet have my own child. I already know we’re going to have to have a stern talk with my parents and in-laws before our (future) children are born to make sure they don’t find it necessary to buy our kid a cheap plastic crap toy every time they walk into a store.

      Be prepared to feel like you don’t exist! The more you speak to people the more they seem to hear, ” Yes, all I’ve ever wanted was that cheap plastic crap that’s been linked to aaaalll the bad stuff”
