Birth | Ilané Schalekamp

"From the moment they placed you in my arms, you snuggled right into my heart."- Unknown

I was just about to go to bed when my phone rang and as I saw the caller Id, I knew that this beautiful little girl was about to make her debut 2 weeks earlier than we expected.

I met a very excited big sister in the corridor at 23:40 in the evening at Kloof Medi Clinic, the excitement was much to big for her little heart to go to bed with ouma and oupa! So she waited to meet this little baby her parents told her all about. Ilané.

After a few words and a few pictures with mom and dad, I was unfortunately not allowed in theatre, I joined the excitement and anticipation in waiting for Ilané.

I'm a big sweet tooth and stole some of my babies Easter eggs on my way to hospital, just for a snack, you know. So big sister Milandri and I had a midnight feast eating Easter eggs and celebrating this brand new baby sister about to make her debut!  (I just have to add I had permission from Ouma to give her chocolates at midnight, so Leandi you need to fight this with your mom :) )

The first time these sister met was so amazing to see and be able to capture, big sister Milandri was a little unsure as I don't think the baby she had in mind and little Ilané looked much a like ;) but I have to tell you that these girls were friends by the time they left the hospital.....

Leandi and Kobus enjoy your beautiful girls, and always stay as involved as you are in each other and your family! You guys warmed my heart, I loved witnessing how good Kobus are with all of his girls and how in love Leandi is with her family!
