4/52 - And then there were three...

Last week I posted two portraits and this week I am posting three.... and from here on in, three it will be!

Yes, our new baby boy was born. 

Amazing how the family and the heart can expand... now I am the mother to three beautiful little people, and how aware I am of what a rich blessing this is!

Here are portraits from the week that our family became a party of five...


Eli: Digging in!
The day I went into labour. 
With mild sporadic contractions, we had a quiet little home day. 
I cut the kids hair (doing my best w a wriggly toddler!) and 
we enjoyed a special ice-cream treat in the backyard. Bliss...



Lily: My little Bower Bird. 
After I gave her hair a trim, I saw her picking up some 
of the offcuts. Shortly afterwards she presented this little doll she made with her
own hair stuck on it!!! Um yes. She is quirky, creative, and delightfully mine!





Miles: Into my arms and my heart.
Welcome to the world, Miles! We love you!
