It's past 11pm as I sit down to write this, so I shouldn't take long. Emma doesn't have a snooze button I can turn on in the morning, although Milly does love to climb into bed beside me and be handed the phone to watch videos as I doze. Tonight... Continue reading

December 23rd, Christmas Eve eve, Milly and I were picked up by friends for Carols by Candlelight, rehearsal night. The queue in was long, but the kids ran and played together while we waited. Just as I was about to sit down inside, I got a very special FaceTime call.... Continue reading

Well, 2019 was pretty dismal on the blogging front, but maybe I can do better for 2020!? I hope so. There are so many great snippets of my life recorded here over the years. Anyway, here was our December. In a mass of photos. On December 1st the girls each... Continue reading

Today I woke to this email from my Mum, sharing some thoughts on the day before when she had looked after Milly, and Emma for a little while too. Just an ordinary day and a weekly occurrence. With two young kids, Mike's shift work and business to run, life often... Continue reading

New year, new goals. Life has been a little chaotic lately - we bought a new house! - and it has often felt like Mike and I are being pulled in separate directions as we tackle different tasks, priorities and kids. We're trying to get back into the routine of... Continue reading

Thanks Mary-Lou! At that stage we didn’t know if the bump contained a boy or girl, so didn’t want to go crazy girly. :)

Photo by Amy Rushbrook. This sketch from the Simple Scrapper membership collection was perfect for showing off this photo from my maternity photo session with the lovely Amy Rushbrook. (I can take a decent photo, but taking one of myself or with my family is a whole different story!) I... Continue reading

Two weeks ago today we brought Emma home from the hospital. I had to stop and think about that for a moment, because man, that time has flown. I've been asked what feels different about becoming a Mum the second time around; it feels less all encompassing but so much... Continue reading

Milly at 10 days old / Emma at 6 days old. That photo of Milly is up on our wall - just an office store print that I quickly had done for her first birthday party that I liked so much I've never taken it down - and wanted to... Continue reading

Thanks Mary-Lou! Edgley was the surname of Mike’s maternal grandparents, his Mum’s maiden name. Just like we chose Mawson as Milly’s middle name which was my Mum’s maiden name, Mike wanted to honour some of the strong women in his family. :)

Day 14: My little nudie-rudie, hanging out in the boat with her Dad in the driveway, while he does some repairs. Love the squishy hug here, hanging onto Dad's arm with all her might. Day 15: This is the day we headed away for a couple nights and I realised... Continue reading

Good eye! Jenna waited only a few days post-wedding to chop it considerably shorter. :)

So... it's no longer anywhere near February, or even March for that matter, but I do have the rest of the month's photos to share. Honestly, I didn't do so great with the daily aspect - more than a few sessions with my camera provided more than one day's worth... Continue reading

Thanks PP! Yes, project continues just suffering in the 'daily' element. ;)

Day 8: To take Milly's photo in the multifaceted mirror we have hanging in the hallway, I stood her on a chair. Despite me having a good hold of Milly she didn't feel safe so I only had a moment or two to attempt this photo. Day 9: After 2... Continue reading

Day 6: I love how the light plays across her face in this photo. But really, it's all about those eyelashes! Day 7: After attempting to set up again today - 2 year olds are not the most cooperative models! - I went back to this photo I took (and... Continue reading

Thanks Mary-Lou! Light can definitely make or break a photo. :)

While this photo was actually taken yesterday, it was from a different session than the photo I posted yesterday and so I'm calling it good. My challenge, my rules. ;) I adore this photo! I was attempting to take some photos of a sleeping Milly during nap time, but she... Continue reading

Day 3 - Just before Christmas I bought a new camera and I love it! After forgetting to take a photo most of the day, then discovering I'd neglected to return the memory card when I did think of it, this photo was taken late at night with only the... Continue reading
