Stuff I Loved :: The October Edition

 Shhheeesh where on earth has this month gone? Like, seriously.

So much has been going on behind the scenes over here, I wish that sometimes I could push on through the night and get that shit done, but I am starting to feel like one old and very weary lady.

:: Current William ::
The yeses and the no's are becoming a constant. The hellos the goodbyes. The backpack, the shirts, the toes, the watch and the tie are some of his favourites. Not only is he growing and changing, he is running fast, he is talking off into the sunset, my baby is finally becoming the boy that I see. I have noticed that sweetness is starting to come out in his actions. He will give his sister the first ice block out of the box, he will unwrap it, put the wrapper in the bin and pass it over to her tiny little hands. He will hold the door open for his grandpa and great grandmother. He will share his milkshake and he will swaddle you in blankets when you look sleepy. On the other hand, he will totally flip out if something is a miss. He will have a meltdown if juice is spilt, he will scream and stomp his feet if you say no. He  will drop his lip and give you a look of utter disgust as he slouches off down the hallway. Lordy, give me strength.

:: Current Olivia ::
This kid does not stop. Full stop. She chats, she warbles, she sings, she dances. She knows how to put a record on the turntable. She knows how to turn off the television. She knows how to push every single boundary. Gosh, I bloody love this gal. We are going to have so much fun when she gets older.

:: Current Triumphs ::
The gym has really been a big thing for me these past six weeks or so. 

Also, expanding my business. Its all happening so easily and smoothly. I have booked in for a workshop with the amazing Jonas Peterson, coming up in a few weeks, in Melbourne. I cannot wait. Wedding photography was totally NOT on my radar for at least two years but people have found me, asked me and I have obliged. I feel so honoured and completely gob smacked that someone would want ME to photograph their wedding. I have no doubt in my ability, I am just still blown away that you can live your dreams and actually achieve what your heart desires.
