My Big Girl Gracie

Today was one of those milestone days.

Today was Gracie's first day at 3 Year Old Kindy. Well technically it was a trial run (just a half day) but still, it was a first, for all of us! Gracie looked like such a big girl with her back pack on all ready to go to "school". She was so excited to go and showed only a little apprehension when she was dropped off this morning. No tears at all! Well from Gracie anyway, Mummy may have shed a few quiet tears! She was so brave and she can't wait to start properly in the new year. So here's to my not-so-baby girl, Gracie. We are so proud of you!

It's a Family Portrait kinda day.

Time, it seems, is flying by far too quickly for my liking at the moment. Christmas is right around the corner and Ollie is a whole 6 weeks old as of tomorrow. So I thought it was only right to set aside some time to take some family pictures, to capture this precious and oh-so-short time in our lives. With my trusty tripod, self timer and photography assistant husband, these are some of the shots we were able to capture. I still can't really believe there are four of us now. It seems only yesterday that it was just Jonathan and I in this big house we call home (although the house feels considerably smaller now there are 4 people living in it). But Ollie is well and truly a major part of our family now. It certainly doesn't take long. Gracie has taken to being a big sister with ease and I am so proud of her. I love my people so much!
