Really Shouldn't be on the Road | There is this very annoying fella that makes me grind my teeth just about every morning on my ride through to work. His crime - the audacity to ride one of those stupid hand-cranked reclined bicycle thingies in morning Muizenburg traffic. Now cyclists in bunches ... (My Life)
Achilles Photo-bomb! | So there I was, trying to snap a nice picture of little Jessica who I had plonked down in bed beside her mommy, who had just got back into the warm snuggly blankets after a nice warm shower in preparation for work. However, it would seem ... (Jessica | My Life)
Jessica versus the Tub Chair | Okay, so she isn't quite there yet, but little Jessie is always keen to try just about everything we task her with, even if it is sitting upright in a tub chair! (And as you can see from the smile, she seems to be enjoying ... (Jessica)
Grabbing the Bottle with Both Hands | Jessie's continued development steam-rolls ahead with each and every passing day, with one such milestone being the ability to at last reach out to something in front of her and try to grab it with both hands. Of course, the applies very nicely to her ... (Jessica)
Barechested Daddy | As much as I despise these cheesy photos of skin on skin parent/child interactions, I have to admit, these few shots I finally gave in and allowed Chantelle to take of Jessica and I on our way to bathy bath time really do show off ... (Jessica)
Photo Gallery: Jessica Lazing About (2011-06-22) | Photos of Jessica doing... well basically not a lot. (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Cats versus Birds | So on the day we were expecting the first visit from Mom and Pops to the Gordon's Bay Lotter stronghold in absolute ages, guess what happened? Well, as I should have known, I strolled past the bathroom in the morning, only to recoil in horror ... (My Life)
Wall Panel Heater for Jessica | Seeing as it is now Winter which of course equals lower temperatures, we decided to install a comfy wall panel heater in Jessica's room in order to ensure she remains toasty all Winter round. Now if you've ever done any research into heating solutions, you ... (Jessica | My Life)
A Photo Visit from Mom and Pops | A couple of Sundays ago we were treated to a visit from Mom and Pops, something we hadn't had for quite a while now. They were quite keen to come and catch up with little Jessica and see the various changes we had made to ... (Jessica | My Life)
My Introduction to Android: Galaxy Ace S5830 | What, who, how?! I didn't believe the SMS I received the other day from Vodacom, alerting me to the fact that I could now upgrade. "That's impossible," I exclaimed, "there is no way that I've had my delightful Samsung Star for two years already!" But a ... (My Life)
Speeding Fine Reduced | If you cast your mind all the way back to March, you might remember my letter faxed off to the traffic department in the hopes of getting my big speeding fine reduced. Well if you can't remember, I don't blame you - I had forgotten about ... (My Life)
Jessica and her Cuddle Buddy via My Galaxy Ace | At last, my new camera has a decent phone with decent megapixels and a decent flash and decent sharing options - all of which means more photos for the blog of course. Like this quick snap of Jessica enjoying her cuddle buddy while daddy gets ... (Jessica)
Jessica Mimicking Mommy | It's too cute for words. Not only has our little dribble monster become to big for her bath booster chair that she now gets to sit on her own in the baby bath and happily splash water everywhere, she's also taken to mimicking Mommy - ... (Jessica)
The Bearded One | I thought I should give you fair warning, just in case I stumble across your path and you get a fright, that I am now sporting a beard. Yes, that's right, a beard. There is no reason for this, other than it might make it ... (My Life)
And Now My Lawn Gets Cut for Me | I like doing my own gardening and DIY projects. It's my bit of territory over which I rule and take great pride in what I achieve on it. That said, it is now Winter. This mean cold and wet weather, though funnily not so much ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Bigger Bath and the Beard (2011-06-11) | Jessica is definitely due a move to the big bath now, Chantelle wanted some cheesy photos of me and Jess, and I think a beard on my face actually works! (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Knocked off My Perch | Sigh, knocked off my perch so quickly. After my epic championship performance at our four man FIFA battle (chronicled here), and due to another scheduling faux pas of the optometrist visit on my part (I do now actually have an appointment for next week, meaning ... (My Life)
Damn You Channel 199! | At last. I though I was free from the television scourge that is Idols this year around, a show that Chantelle religiously watches each and every time around. Seeing as we haven't had MNET for months now, due to the fact we downgraded to DSTV ... (My Life)
How to Feed a Baby Without Messing on Her Clothes | Ha! After noting some rather messy results of Chantelle attempting to feed Jessica all sorts of cereals, purity and home made butternut concoctions (as proven by the image above), I came up with a brilliant method of feeding Jessica and not having to spend the ... (Jessica | My Life)
Photo Gallery: Activity Mat and Granny Time (2011-06-06) | My Mom and Dad came for a visit, and of course, it was activity mat time for Jessica. After all, Grandpa wanted to get some nice shots in! :) (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Controllers and the Boys | Last Tuesday I was meant to take a trip through to Bellville after work in order to see Chantelle's optometrist for a long overdue eye appointment plus contact lens order. However, seeing as he is currently on leave, this plan kind of fell through - ... (My Life)
Photo Gallery: Cats versus Birds (2011-06-05) | The problem with cats is that they tend to catch birds. And despite her efforts, Chantelle couldn't save this young feathered fella. (My Life | Photo Gallery)
Jessica back to Full Health | Yay! So the doctor confirmed yesterday on the check-up visit that the antibiotics seems to have done the trick. The ear, nose and throat infections have all receded, the various swellings are down, her chest is open again - in other words Jessie is back ... (Jessica)
