2015 Portraits: September

"Monthly portraits of my girls in 2015"

Sophie: Only four months until this little one begins kindergarten... I am holding onto every little part of this 'home-full-time' phase...

Grace: Finding myself catching more and more glimpses lately of  'young lady' as opposed to 'little girl'...

    1. It feels like just yesterday that they were little babies and toddlers!! Time has honestly flown...

  2. Lovely girls you have. So cute. You're lucky having them.

  3. Oh my look at your beautiful girls:) Sophie is just the cutest and I bet you are making the most of that time just the two of you together. And Grace she is looking so so grown up and sweet. Beautiful portraits lovely. xxx

  4. Hi Amanda, I discovered your blog last year and wanted to tell you how much I enjoy it. I gradually read back through all your old posts and I love the way you write with such simplicity and honesty about everyday life. I live in England so for me it is also interesting reading about the differences and similarities of life here and in Australia. Your girls are so delightful and your family seems such a close and loving one. My daughter started infant school just this past September and I really identified with the feelings you wrote about when Grace was starting school! Also I must thank you for the recipe for raspberry and white chocolate muffins - so delicious! It is now a family favourite that I make all the time! Naomi

    1. Hi Naomi, Thanks so very much for taking the time to leave a comment and for truly making my day with your lovely words!! I am so glad you enjoy what I share and that you can relate to some of what I am going through. I'm happy to know others are enjoying the muffin recipe that our family loves. My youngest daughter is starting kindergarten in 2016 (2 days a week) and I am finding that all of those emotions I had back when Grace started school are surfacing again with the thought that 'my baby' will no longer be home with me full time :( Thanks again for stopping by and introducing yourself. Amanda xx

  5. My little girl starts four year old kinder in 2016 too! She is eager; I am wondering how I will go with the letting go this time around. Wishing you a wonderful New Year Amanda! Much love xx


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - it really makes my day!!
