It seems like a long time ago now that this photo was taken. It was taken the day before Noah was born, the day before I was officially a “mother”. The desire in my heart had been there a long time before and I’m so thankful to God for blessing me with this journey of motherhood.
The hand and foot picture of my breech Noah…I knew from when he was growing inside me that this little one would grow to be determined…
love being a big brother (mostly…apart from when he needs alone time without Byron following his every move:)…
and have a vivid imagination!
When I embarked on this journey of motherhood I had no idea what the journey would involve. I’m thankful that every step of the way I have had God’s constant guidance to help me make the many and varied decisions that this ministry of motherhood entails.
Tomorrow, I start a new journey with Noah….that of being teacher. But, you know that journey started when he was born and is just continuing now in another form. Noah is keen to get started on his “school” work. He has asked many times when am I going to finally teach him to read and write….sneakily I have been teaching him how to read since the first time I read him a book I’m looking forward to starting this journey. I’m thankful for God’s guidance and strength and looking forward to where these uncharted waters will take us.Bon voyage!
Twas a fine Christmas Eve morn and Miss Turkey (the resident scrub turkey) was fluffing her feathers looking like she might become dinner. But alas, she lives another day grunting in our backyard! I was thinking to myself, “I wonder what scrub turkey’s taste like!” Thankfully I won’t ever find out!
A new toothbrush :)) I thought maybe a flashing spider man toothbrush might give Noah a little bit more incentive to brush his purley whites!
Our scooter boy! He is ready to roll with enough padding to keep him rolling for the next few years!
It has been great to spend some time with our families over the Christmas break and a special treat has been time with our nieces and nephews. Noah affectionately calls them “my cousins” and here are a few pictures of our recent adventures with them!
My nephew William is a character! He posted a little something on the Christmas tree (see above!) ….
Noah and Byron are blessed with four loving and lovely cousins. Sophie loves to play with the boys and especially taking Byron for rides on the digger! I love that from when Byron was a newborn Sophie has confidently carried Byron around! We love you Sophie!
The infamous washing trolley! This trolley was once my Grandmother Lily’s. Its a tradition to wheel the babies around in it as it squeaks and get your photo taken in it! Byron loves a ride! Thanks Lochlan and Sophie!
A little belated…but I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and got a little time to relax at this special but also hectic time of year!
I LOVED celebrating Christmas with our two boys…to see Noah’s delight on Christmas morning and Byron’s confusion!
The gingerbread house…melted in a landslide of sugary ooze….next year I won’t be using caramelized sugar to hold the walls together!
A special Christmas breakup party with a lovely group of women I meet with monthly for a women’s forum. Thanks so much for your wonderful encouragement ladies! Lots of love!
