It was mullet masacre yesterday. I took the boys in for their first haircut. :-(
The last mullet post.
A sneaky back-dated post...
I thought I was going to get off scot-free by not posting the boys' birthday bash on the blog, but, then one very clever bugger asked why the party wasn't here.
Apologies, dear blog readers, as I do realise you're not that engrossed with the antics of their birthday shindig.
In any case, it was a safari in the Serengeti for Jake and, of course, for Liam, a repeat of last years theme, cars.
Two fire engines and an ambulance arrived at the venue, treating the boys and their guests to rides around the neighbourhood.
There you are boys, posted and done.
I know first hand, as a photographer, that there are thousands of images of those people around us captured by the flicker of the lens, but none, or very, very few, actually includes us within the frame.
This year, I received an amazing gift (twice), which was, incredibly, a shoot with my children and I.
When Joretha (a wedding photographer herself) contacted me earlier this year, to photograph her family, I knew it was due time to pay this gift forward.
Here you are, Joretha, a few of my favourites:
Just yesterday, we received the news that there would be two.
Just yesterday, I gave birth to two baby boys.
Just yesterday, two teeny new newborns came into our lives, packaged with double the noise and a puppy smell that made me want to hug and hold you until you popped.
Just yesterday, I watched your dadda take you out for your morning walks and hold your podgy fingers to trim your tiny fingernails.
Just yesterday, I heard you call a caterpillar a pasta pillow.
Yes, blog readers, it was only just yesterday.
And today Jake and Liam are four.
Happy Birthday, Boys!
