Two for Two-sday - 2 year old pictures

Playing along with Debi as per usual. Pop over - you are bound to see many great two-somes.

I am one of those moms who takes a hundred photographs during any given week. Sometimes my kids get a bit, well "gatvol". (A great South African Afrikaans word meaning sick and tired).

But some occasions really calls for a photo session, so I tried my best with the twins on their second birthday. Not an easy task!

Take 1: Little Man L looks a bit weird.

Not the best of any of the two - and Little Man C's very sensitive blue eyes are always closed on a photo.

And I just love this one! Not perfect at all, but showing exactly where we are at.

We're two - wow! Managed to get that one !

And the cheesy grins on this one cracks me up.

So, not a single perfect one - but just love the last 3!
In other news, we had our first really big thunderstorm for the season. Most of our rain comes in summer in this form and The Boys were completely freaked out. Made for a long evening! Lots of flooding in the city, but we were lucky once again. Poor Adele's house was flooded.
I took Little Man L for a second opinion to a young ENT specialist and feel a lot more confident with his opinion. He thinks we can buy a bit of time on the tonsils by putting grommets in his ears now, a much smaller operation with less risks. His tonsils will have to come out, but he is hoping to reduce the tonsillitis attacks and postpone for 6 months to a year to give him time to grow a bit more. The ears are also important for his language development as he is not hearing well ( he illustrated this to me) and we have also noticed. He might also remove his adenoids depending on what he sees during the operation. Let's hope for healthier times. He is scheduled for the 15th of October, early morning.


  1. Greetings and Salutations! SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did...Pontificating, today, on the state of the world.

    Yes, We Can? No, He Shouldn't

  2. My girls feel the same way lately when I break out the camera! That's kids for ya!
    Great photos! Your kids are precious!! Keeping him in my prayers - I should have had my tonsils taken out when I was a kid but I still have them (they still give me trouble though.)

  3. Your kids are so cute! I hope that your son's procedure is successful:-)

  4. Happy birthday boys. Cute pics.

    I feel your pain. Graham's ears are still in flux. Ugh!

  5. Love the candid photos! They are darling boys and your little princess is beautiful as always.

    My oldest had her tonsils and adenoids out when she was three. She snored like a lumber jack. I hated her going through the surgery, but it was worth it in the end. Sounds like you have a good ENT. There is so much peace in finding a doctor you are comfortable with.

  6. I love the pics! And good luck on the surgery. Our daughter had tubes put in her eardrums when she was 18 months old and it made a huge difference. And when they fell out on their own, she never needed them put back in again.

  7. Cute Pictures - and funny! (only because we have the same problem!)

  8. How adorable! I LOVE that they aren't perfect pics, but instead perfectly "them". It shows their personalitites off just wonderfully :)

    Thanks so much for playing along today!

    ps Glad to hear about the second opinion.

  9. I left an award for you on my blog. :)


So what's on your mind?
