About Us

My photo
We are the Pomario Family and we used to live in Johannesburg, South Africa. On the 10 July 2009 at 8.05 our little family grew to 3 when our precious daughter Natalia was born. We were blessed that she had chosen us to be her parents and we were privileged to have her in our lives. We believe she is here to teach us many lessons and give us plenty of joy. We relocated to Australia in April 2011. These are our stories……

First Visit

After receiving the positive blood results, we had to wait 2 weeks for our first appointment, a long anxious wait.........

On the 10 December 2008 we went for our first visit and scan with the Gynae. Our original Gynae was off ill so we were assigned a new one, Dr Schulz. This was our oppotunity to see live pictures of the little person growing inside me. Kim and I kept on looking at each other in complete amazement, now knowing that this was for real. Seeing the little hearbeat was unreal. We got our first pics and had to send them out for everyone to see that evening. I also couldn't believe that this small little 'olive' was making so ill.............

We believe you are a girl. Lets see if we are right.

Kim and I decided to go on a Mini Honeymoon to the Eastern Transvaal the week after we got married, because everything is triple the price in December. So we are going to have our Proper Honeymoon at the end of January in Mauritius.

We can't wait!!!

Overjoyed Excitement

Kim and I found out 2 days before we go married on the 28 November that I was pregnant. What a shock, but complete happiness! We did not expect to get pregnant this fast. I had only been taking Folic Acid and the like for 1.5 months.

Kim wanted me to have a blood test because we were leaving for the Kruger Park the next Monday, and 'if' I was pregnant then I couldn't take Malaria tablets, so that prompted me to go and find out. So my dear sister, Loren, went with me to the Wilgeheuwel Hospital close by to have a blood test done. I had been feeling anxious, like I had butterflies, tense (because I was getting married soon), tired, moody, hungary, bloated - so when my Mom and I collected the positive blood results, everything was clear as day. I then realised why I couldn't pull my stomach in and I was due to wear a fitted wedding dress on the Friday.

I immediately went to the Gynae rooms to make an appointment. The Sister estimated that I was 6 and a bit weeks pregnant. The drive home was the longest ever - I couldn't wait to let Kim know face to face. The earliest appointment was for 10 December.

Wow, this is truly a miracle :)

We are in awe

28 November 2008 - Our Wedding Day

This photo was taken by Cherdine Stander

This photo was taken by Megan and Conrad du Plessis

We got married at Casalinga Chapel, Muldersdrift, at 14h30 on Friday, 28 November 2008. After the wedding ceremony we all went to Hakunamatata in the same area for the reception party. What a whirlwind day......... It was great, but I'm glad the stress and preperations are over. Besides, I was pregnant and feeling extremely tired and drained.

We will only get our official wedding photos from the photographer in January sometime. I will upload them then. I know a lot of you can not wait to see them - neither can we.

Love Leigh & Kim

My Pamper Party - 12 Nov 08

So surprise, surprise. Yesterday I went for a dress fitting and afterwards was supposed to go to Loren's house to babysit Malakai. Only, when I got there it was my Pamper Party instead. Thank you to everyone that made an effort to make it a really enjoyable day, but whoever ordered the weather, really! Only person that I missed was my dear Mother, wish she could have been there.
Oh, and thanks for all the lingerie and pressies, they are needed and most welcome........
