OUR WATER BABY
















Hope you all had a great weekend , we did, just seem to fly way to fast!

We went for a quick braai at Meggy and Conrads place on Friday night, but our soldier was very busy up and down that he got tired so quickly and we headed home rather early - but it was great to be out and to see Keaton again, who was fast asleep!
CONGRATS TO JAMES AND ELIZABETH ON YOUR WEDDING ON SATURDAY, HOPE IT WAS A STUNNING,MEMORABLE DAY AND LOOK VERY FORWARD TO HEARING ABOUT IT! MAY YOUR LOVE BE AS ENDLESS AS YOUR WEDDING RINGS!
Saturday, Great Grandpa, Nanna and Iattended another wonderful mass ! Our very supportive congregation all came to check in on how Meggie and Keaton and Deqlan where doing.

Its Ash Wednesday , this Wednesday which signals the start of Lent, which is a 40 day preparation for Easter. The intention is to give up something significant that you would miss during these 40days as a token of penance and sacrifice, just as Jesus sacrificed his life for us on the cross.
Nanna and I will be giving up chocolate ...ha ha ha ha...Mark thinks this will be very hard for me and thats why i am doing it! To say thank you to Our Lord in any way i can for all the miracles He continues to perform in and around and through Deqlan!

Dada washed his new car in the sunshine and I brought out the sea shell and filled it with water and lots and lots of toys to keep our Deqlan occupied! Well he had an absolute ball and loved Dada spraying the water on his feet on legs! I really battled to get Deqlan out the water and Garden, but he had to get dry some time!

Sunday was spent cleaning up and I had every intention of getting Deqlan back into the water but it was a little chilly in the morning and that to hot later in the day! So after Dada got back from golf we decided to take Deqlan to the shops as we started to get a bit of cabin fever being inside the whole day. It was also late in the afternoon so we knew there would be no one at the shops and felt comfortable taking our little guy out for an outing!

As we arrived at the shopping centre we met Stefan, Nadia and Aidan. We went to ante natal classes together and Aidan was born on the same day as Deqlan. It is the first time Deqlan saw some one of his own age, own size and height and he immediately wanted to get down to investigate Aidan! Well, the boys where in there element!

They run around in a circle coming back to each other each time! Aidan tried to high 5 Deqlan a few times, but he hasnt quite mastered that game yet - Deqlan smiled from ear to ear and Mark and I where so very happy to have a little bit of normal and to see Deqlan having so much fun. I cant wait for him to have his vaccinations again and to start being able to be around other children - what a stunning moment this was to see Deqlan so very very happy!

We then got Deqlan in the trolley and went into Woolies to get our groceries - Mark and I both realised how grown up Deqlan was - the baby is definitely gone! But, he will always be my baby boy!

Today we got the pool out at Nanna's house and again Deqlan was in his element to say the least! We also put the sprinklers on and Deqlan was in fits of laughter - he loves watching the water move round and round and feeling the spray on his feet! Deqlan got so brave he tried to drink water from the sprayer! What a stunning morning , hope you enjoy the pics, Deqlan is definitely a water baby!

Made our ultrasound scan appointment for 8am 12 Feb- then afterwards we will go down for blood and urine tests and will see Dr De Jager round 26 Feb to discuss all the results. Please continue to pray for Deqlan to remain NED for ever and ever!

Please pray very hard for our friends fighting nb and other cancers - there are so many running out of options and we know that Our God performs miracles for his servants - please pray for cures to be found, money to be raised for more cure to be found!

Hope you have a stunning week, hope you are all well!
God Bless, Hugs and love

Mark, Samm & Deqlan

ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It si so wonderful to see Deqlan playing in the water and having such a good time. He is looking so well.

We will continue to pray for Deqlan to remain healthy and to have many happy, sunny days playing in the water.
