I've spread the news on Facebook, IRC, IM and Microblogs, so let me blog about it here.

Yep, Hannah and I are now the proud parents of a beautiful big boy named Zachary. He was born this afternoon at 12:16 via caesarean section, and weighed 3.57 kilograms. Mom is tired, but fine (I've never seen her happier in her entire life), Zak is the most awesome baby ever, and dad is zonked! Read more about It's a Boy!...

Unfortunately due to the rainy winter weather here in Cape Town, and due to lots of visiting/visitors, I haven't had as much chance to work on the cot as I would have liked to. Fortunately this past Sunday we weren't out galavanting, and it was nice and sunny, so I was able to sand down the second cot end board. Read more about Some more progress on the cot...

I'm pretty sure everyone's already heard, but just in case... Read more about Baby Snyman arrives in five days!...

So over the last 8 months since we found out that Hannah is pregnant, we've been slowly but surely preparing for the arrival of the new addition to the family. One of the things we've recently done is to buy a second-hand cot. Of course this means that we might not be able to get a cot in the colour we want, and sure enough, this one was a dirty pink colour. Yuck.

So, Operation Cot Repaint was started.

First, we needed some supplies:

Like the alliteration?

My 21st birthday was last month and Raoul insisted that because it was my 21st (quite a milestone) that I couldn't just ask for books or other little things as my present- I had to ask for something big and something that I'd really enjoy. It took me awhile to think of something. Read more about A belated birthday bread machine and two baby buys...

We got a new camera! Yay! Here's a juicy photo:

Canon EOS 450D Bundle Box

It's rather difficult taking a photo of your camera with that camera, so I unfortunately had to settle for a photo of the box! Read more about A new camera!...

Well, it's been a couple weeks since we got back from our trip to Johannesburg, but after much urging, cajoling, etc (as usual- I'm no blogger) from Raoul I'm only blogging about it now. Read more about Our Trip to Joburg...

As I blogged earlier, we were burgled in February, and Hannah's laptop, and our R9000 digital camera were stolen. Since then, I've been corresponding with the insurance assessor, trying to get insurance to agree to pay out for the two items that were stolen. Read more about Your honour, I present exhibit A...

Hannah and I came across a blog called "Stuff Christians Like" on a friend's blog roll (list of blogs a person reads), and after reading the first couple of posts, we were hooked.

One post in particular caught my eye: The Sound Guy Neck Crane

As a person who does sound at my church from time to time, you won't believe how often I experience this! I'm glad to see it doesn't only happen in my church! Read more about The Sound Guy Neck Crane...
