pharmacoeconomics - done!

I was deleting some photos on the computer to make room for all the photos we've been taking of Lucas when I stumbled across these. I can't believe this was a year and a month ago, feels like a life time away now! 

I remember when I graduated with my undergrads years ago saying I'd never go back to uni - so much for that! Working full time and studying part time isn't exactly my idea of fun but the pain was definitely worth it. So thankful to be enjoying the fruit of it all now :)

I was genuinely scared when I started this course at Monash. I wasn't sure if I had what it took to get through it. So thankful for the way you and others around me believed in me when I didn't.  It's such a freeing experience when you achieve something you didn't think you were capable of. Makes you question other limitations you've subconsciously set for yourself.

Thanks for insisting that we fly down to Melbourne for the graduation ceremony. It seemed like a crazy thing to do given that I was happy enough to have the certificate posted but I'm thankful for how proud you were and how much you wanted to celebrate the achievement.

Do you remember what was waiting for us at the airport in Melbourne when we arrived? That bright yellow canary car. How bright was it!! I felt like a total hoon driving around in that thing! 
 Ahh Melbourne in sunshine. A rare sight.
On the left - what we'd all like to believe study looks like. You know, glamorous, all it involves is wearing a cap and gown and casual sitting on a bench. On the right - what the last year leading up to the photo on the left actually felt like, pure pain.
 Graduate Certificate in Pharmacoeconomics! DONE. 
We celebrated with dinner at a little Japanese restaurant before rushing back to the airport to fly home to Sydney.

little audrey

Dear Audrey,

You little miss are as beautiful as your mum is hilarious and in a few years time you'll learn that is a whole lot of beautiful!!

I hope one day you look back on these images of you and your mamma and are reminded that she's always loved you.

bath time success...really

You went from a bucket in the shower, to a bucket in the bath and now you've finally graduated to the big bath and you love it!!


Bath time is one of my favourite times of the day with you. I'm usually a little exhausted from our day by the time the afternoon rolls around so I'm always looking forward to our baths. You do this really cute thing at the moment where you lay back on my belly and watch your legs as you kick and splash them about. You just sit there quietly amusing yourself and I sit there thinking how fortunate I am to be your mama...that and how tiny our bath is!

the noodle markets

A few weeks ago we went into town to check out the noodle markets. How is it that everything we now do is so much more fun and exciting? Your little smile definitely has something to do with it!
  Baba and Dedo - I love them so much for the way they love you.
I can't quite find the right word but there is something beautiful that happens in my heart when I see others enjoy and delight in you, even when it's your Baba and Dedo. I'm not sure if there is a word or emotion out there to describe it. It's unlike anything I've ever felt before. It's almost as though my heart now says "if you want to show me you love me...delight in and love my son". Makes me wonder if that's what God was on about when he sent Jesus.
 That's Dad - always has his eyes on you. I love that about him.
Look at you - that smile!
When you start giggling I loose it. It's the cutest most wonderful noise in the world!
My two very handsome men.
You look sooo little in this photo.
So blessed to do life with you two.
