Being Millie’s first Christmas where she will be interacting (last Christmas she was 3 weeks old) I am loving the lead-up. We have already done two Christmas shoots and I still have so many more ideas I want to try.
Here are a few from the shoots we have already done.
‘Merry & Bright’ onesie: Piper Bug
‘Pixie’ floral headband: Gracie Jane Designs
‘Australian Christmas’ Romper & Red Bow: Two of Four
‘M’ Christmas Wreath: Made myself
Lights: Kmart (who doesn’t love Kmart)
Hope you are all getting on top of your Christmas shopping early like we are. To be honest we have to be as Millie’s first birthday is only a few weeks before Christmas. Then the Wedding is a few weeks after. Organisation, is key for this chaotic time of year.
For every photo that makes the cut, there are 100’s that don’t. For any full-time child photographers, my hat comes off to you. Seriously how do you do it? And those that do family photography how do you get everyone to look at the camera and smile. Getting a decent photo fo our family I have given up on.
I did some early Christmas photos the other day (Romper & Bow from TwoofFour), and while yes I got a few that I can use most of them turned out like this ——————————————>
Or blurry. I shouldn’t complain too much but seriously kid, why?
On the plus side, this Mama is getting out the house tomorrow with one of my oldest and dearest friends. Dinner and wine. After the last few weeks of job interviews (didn’t get them) and a sick teething baby, constant rain and a fiance that has been snowed under with his studies.
I need a night to just reset and refresh. To put some nice clothes on and go out and have a nice dinner without a highchair and adult conversations. but let’s be honest we are both Mama’s so the conversation will probably rotate around our kids.
I can not believe that in two short months our little Millie will be one year old. This year has gone so fast. and so much has happened.
Millie was born.
Millies first Christmas.
I graduated university.
My brother’s wedding.
It has been a beautiful year full of so many ups and a few down.
It’s so hard to believe that our little girl is already 6 months old. She has grown so much and affected so many in her short time here already. We have had so many firsts: smiles, foods, rollovers, weekends away, and even our first swimming lessons. She is growing into her own little person more and more each day and just when Andrew and I think we can’t love her any more than we already do, she gives us a look, a giggle, and we fall more and more in love with her.
The love Andrew and I have for each other is also growing. Watching him play with her on the floor or watching them fall asleep together, makes my heart race in a way I didn’t even know was possible.
I can not wait to see what the next 6 months have in store for our little family.
