One of those funny quirks about getting older is that you tend to place less and less significance on your age. As a kid, I used to long for my birthday - I couldn't wait to get older... and each one felt like it took FOREVER to get here, as I'm sure you all remember!
But now I've started (some might say, deliberately) to forget my age! The other day in the car, Mr 7 asked me how old I am.
I replied "I'm 43... (pause)... I think??"
Miss 9 happily piped up: "Hang on mummy, I think you're 44, aren't you?"
And so I started doing the maths in my head, and suddenly realised she was right, and for most of this year I've been happily going along thinking that I'm 43.
AND my birthday is in January, so I'm about to turn 45!
I've lost an entire year, and I'm not happy about it!
I first met Emma, Dave & little Duke earlier this year for a maternity session at Tamborine - we did a mix of outdoor and studio for even more variety - such a gorgeous family and absolutely glowing mumma-to-be!
Then before too long, beautiful baby Rose was here - and she is absolute perfection! These soft pretty colours really suited her perfectly. We held the session in the family home so that Duke could be in his own environment, amongst familiar things - and although he wasn't totally in the mood on the day, we managed some lovely sibling and family images in the end!
Thank you Emma and Dave!
