Its the eve of mister-almost-4's birthday, and I'm operating somewhere between denial and excitement at the thought of my baby boy turning 4. Each morning this week I open Facebook and bask in the "You have memories on Facebook" reminder, reliving all those last days of the baby bump and all the highs and lows that went with it. Including smirking at my wishful status updates that I wanted to go into labour early, when in the end, I had to be induced at 10 days over. Little bugger did not want to come out.
And now here we are, 4 years later. Seriously, where did those 4 years go?
(That's my boy in the image above, big brown eyes!)
Naturally the excitement is high in our household right now. Add in a Christmas tree, the arrival of our Elf on the Shelf "Dash", and big sisters last few weeks of school, and its a mad, crazy, loud and emotional house of fun here at the moment.
December birthdays, do you have any in your family? We have EIGHT December birthdays in our combined family... EIGHT!! And my parents wedding anniversary. Its a big month. Dare I say, its an EXPENSIVE month! And with 2 young kids with birthdays so close to Christmas, it begins to resemble a toy shop at our house by the end of the month! Am I just destined to be surrounded by Sagittarians and Capricorns all my life?
Oh December, cant believe you are here already, I'm SO not ready for you yet!
I met the Kelly family a little while back, and I have been delighted to do not one, but two shoots for them recently!
Our first shoot was at the beautiful Underwood Park, and let me tell you, the camera just LOVED master Ryder, seriously, he was just a dream to work with! Lots of big smiles, he loved running around, having lots of cuddles with mum and dad, and doing everything I asked, and more! What a gorgeous family!
This is the ONLY way to travel!
I love these tender moments with mummy :)
All smiles for dad, loving that ball!
This little man is such a natural with the ball! Way to make my job easy, Ryder!
Thank you to the Kelly family for sharing your morning of love and laughter with me!
