21 April: Introducing Jethro

Introducing Jethro, born 19 April at 22 hours, Pretoria East Hospital. A teeny-weeny sleepy bundle who has been gratefully and joyfully received into our world. And he is not named after any 70's rock band either! Jethro, the father-in-law of Moses, was the world's first Management Consultant and a wise one at that. He advised Moses to delegate lesser tasks of judgement to ten carefully chosen deputies so that Moses could focus on the task of leadership. Sound familiar?

Cath is delighted to hold the Bump at last.

Ryan seems a natural.

Gran's eyes are wide with wonder! Ruth, Joelle and Jaelene will arrive this weekend to welcome "Another J, Mommy! into the family.
