We’re back in Bloemfontein after the trip to the Drakensberg and to Durban! The baby’s passport *should* be here in two weeks or so!! More about our trip soon!

It was a good two and a half years ago when the Bear made his first trip to South Africa. He was a four month old little sprite when we flew from Edinburgh to Joburg, preparing to introduce the first grandchild to his Goo-Goo and Gammy here in Bloemfontein.

It was a hot Bloemfontein Christmas, and we treasured every special moment.



It just so happened that little man number two arrived in Bloemfontein for his first ever visit at four months as well. So we decided that it was a good time to start a family tradition.


Mind you, we couldn’t put the Tank in a diaper and nothing else this time around. It’s winter, ya know!


I think the four month old visit to Bloemfontein {complete with the re-re-staging of these specific photos} is a good family tradition, and when the next little one comes along (not that we’re expecting any time soon!) we’ll be booking flights to arrive on the four month mark!

Do you think the Bear and the Tank look like brothers?
