Home Sweet Home

We're finally back to Lesotho after almost two months away! It feels good to be home, but I think we're experiencing a little culture shock after living in an upscale retirement community in a big city for a while. We miss the electricity and especially the washing machine!


We're really going to miss Grandpa and Grandma Louw. They were SO good to us!

Sorry that it's been a while since we've put anything on our blog. Here's a few "one month old" pictures.
Kristell is doing so well and really putting on weight. You can see how much her legs have fattened up below. The doctor said she should gain an average of 20-30 grams a day. On average, she's been putting on a little more than that since she got home from the hospital. On Monday she weighed 2260 grams. I think that's almost exactly five pounds.

She is a cutie! She is getting chubby little cheeks for only being 5 lbs =) I am sure you are all happy to be home!

The second picture of Kristell looks somewhat like Stephanie. I'll be praying for the culture shock that you are experiencing, I'm sure it is difficult. Keep encouraged my friend, you are doing an awesome job with God's help! Glad all is going well!!!!
