Lucas and Esther

People say you guys look alike. I've got no idea what they're talking about. 
I don't see it :P

Lucas 4 months / Esther 4 months 

Maddie turns one

Oh Maddie - I can't believe it's almost been a year since we met! 

Hope you have an absolute hoot being celebrated. 

Happy birthday precious one.

A few scenes from my birthday week. Honey, thank you so much for all the effort you went to with both the big and little things, you made me feel so loved and cared for.

Enjoying Q station with our little princess - thank you for organising that day, it ticked all the box's!

riverkids and playgroup christmas party

My work Christmas parties were pretty cool back in the day but I have to admit you're little Christmas parties seem to be even cooler!

You and Summer! Hmmm, I recon you've both got your ability to play up to the camera from your dads :P
I love this shot of you Esther, smiling away at Aunty Deb!
That's the all in kids service. Lucas you were so impressed by the way Sophie played her drum, you talked about it all afternoon!
Little Em centre stage!

about last saturday

A few of my favourite things from last Saturday:

1. My amazing breakfast salad - sooo good!
2. GG's beautiful words at brunch
3. Aaron playing Humpty basket ball with Lucas
4. Chatting to Sophie
5. The Nutella birthday cake you surprised me with
6. Running around and discovering the Ian Potter Garden with Lucas 
7. Watching him make friends and run around that magical garden as though they were the "Lost Boys" from Peter Pan
8. Esther. Full stop and always. That girl blows my mind and heart.
9. Watching you reading them stories before bed.

I love that I get to share blowing out a birthday cake with GG (and now Lucas :P) every year, it's one of my favourite things about my birthday.
Esther, you are amazing! I love, love, love being your mum!
