Just yesterday, we received the news that there would be two.
Just yesterday, I gave birth to two baby boys.
Just yesterday, two teeny new newborns came into our lives, packaged with double the noise and a puppy smell that made me want to hug and hold you until you popped.
Just yesterday, I watched your dadda take you out for your morning walks and hold your podgy fingers to trim your tiny fingernails.
Just yesterday, I heard you call a caterpillar a pasta pillow.
Yes, blog readers, it was only just yesterday.
And today Jake and Liam are four.
Happy Birthday, Boys!

We are in the Waterberg, emails and calls will be returned on Monday.
Have a great a great weekend!
As I type this, the moments which come to mind are Taryn's bridesmaids, who cried even before Taryn walked down the aisle. The emotional walk down that coveted footpath, the awesome first dance and the presentation Taryn's father put together at the reception.
A dashing groom, a beautiful bride - who knew how to rock her frock - an emotional ceremony (that almost had me shedding a tear) and an all-out enormous party - what can I say? All in a day's work!
We decided to venture away from the traditional hot spots at Oakfield and both Taryn and Chris did not as much as flinch at the locations we suggested. Although, I might add, there was a slither of panic in Taryn's eye when I mentioned the swing ;-)
No more blabbering from my side - I am far too excited to show off the images from this wedding.
I was at my PC surfing my regular haunts of inspiration on the Web, with Oliver at my side, when I happened upon my favourite children photographer's blog.
In one image, Oliver spotted a kite and asked: "Can I have one of those?"
So, of course, that kite we made.
Here's Liam with the kite that does not fly ;-)
Up today, is the ever-patient Christina and Derick.
They tied the knot a couple of weeks ago, at Green Leaves, under spring skies blue enough to rival Christina's beautiful eyes. Well, almost!
It seems as though I am repeating the same mantra with each wedding post, but, the couples we take on seem to be the most precious souls!
Both Christina and Derick are just the nicest people you could meet. Myself and Stella had such a wonderful time with the pair of them.
This wedding was all about the real, natural, no fuss - just a calm and happy celebration of love. This is most definitely a wedding that will be remembered with fondness.
I've so many favourite photographs and below are just a few to let you in on the merest glimpse of such a memorable day.
I would like to thank Christina, Derick, their family and friends for making us feel so incredibly welcome
We were once again blessed with awesome light in the chapel...and how awesome is the Boabab ring holder!
