Growing and changing.

This year has seen a lot of growing and changing in our family and our home. We have celebrated a few birthdays already and some other milestones. Amy took a swan dive off the cubby house and split open her chin which meant a swift visit to the local emergency room. She was brave until […]

The girls.
The girls.

I really need to write a long post about our beautiful girls but right now my little old laptop is running red hot from the three photoshoots I am editing and I literally cannot do anything on it without it slowing down to practically backwards speed. So, it’s another iPhone post, thank goodness for iPhone […]

Snaggle tooth
Snaggle tooth

Look who finally lost her top tooth! Its been wobbling like mad for weeks now and the last few days have been intense, I have taken lots of photos of her face with this little skew tooth sticking out because I knew how different she would look once it fell out. Sure enough we were […]

Stella turns into a preschooler.
Stella turns into a preschooler.

The whole family has been very sick the past week, high fevers, strep throat, snotty noses and hacking coughs. Its been horrible. Awful, on so many levels. Ron and I were both ill as well and Wednesday last week was a low point in our family as the girls lay on the trundle bed mattress […]

Children and change.
Children and change.

How are the girls you ask? How did they feel about leaving our old house, do they love the new house? Has the transition been fraught with emotional distress or has it all been a big adventure? Well, firstly thanks for asking and secondly, the girls are doing really well. Remarkably well. In fact I […]

Milestones of a different nature – goodbye nummies.
Milestones of a different nature - goodbye nummies.

We have had lots of milestones in the White house over the last few months, first day at school, first sports awards, first wobbly tooth and first visit from the toothfairy followed very quickly by the second visit from the toothfairy! Mostly they have been positive and happy milestones, although a little tinged with emotion, […]

Another milestone!
Another milestone!

Amy has had her first wobbly tooth since her last day of preschool back in December. She has been very unsure of it and almost scared for it to fall out, convinced that it was going to hurt or sting so as a result she has hardly wobbled it at all. Amazing really that it […]

Time slips away.
Time slips away.

I know its been ages since I last posted, my reasons will become clear in time, for now, I need to record this moment. Today was Amy’s first day at primary school. As only Amy could do, she surpassed all my expectations and despite being too nervous to eat any breakfast, she was full of […]

Then and Now.
Then and Now.
Milestones, beginnings, endings.

Tomorrow will be a special day in the White Household. Its Amy’s last day at preschool. It feels like yesterday that she was off for her first day. This is such a bittersweet milestone for us as parents and for me in particular. Our relationship with Amy’s little preschool has been such a wonderful one. […]

Angel.
Angel.

This time of year is fraught with emotion as it is. Now throw in a rare astrological event and an end of year preschool Christmas concert and its all too much to cope with. Amy is not herself, she sobbed desperately when we left her at preschool after her concert and this afternoon when I […]

School readiness.
School readiness.

Wow, way to go wordpress, I just typed out an awesome blog post and you ate it. Dammit. Now I have to try and remember all the brilliant things I said. November in Australia means school orientation for children starting their first year of primary school the following year. For those who don’t know, schools […]

When it rains, it pours.
When it rains, it pours.

Its Tuesday night and our Easter long weekend is over. Back to work and preschool tomorrow for Ron and Amy, back to loads of washing and episodes of Dora for me and Stella! So, it was a great weekend despite the way it ended! Those of you that are friends with me on Facebook will […]

What a difference a year makes

Do you remember this day last year? When my little girl went off to preschool for the first time? I do. I can’t believe a whole year has past. Amy has been looking forward to returning to preschool. Its been a strange transition for her, just last week we saw two of her friends who […]

Milestones – proud parents

Today was a very special day. Amy performed in her first ever dance concert. She did two dances in her group of girls and boys aged 3-5 and she was a star! It was an emotional milestone for me, this morning I had to do her hair up in pony tails with curls and the […]

Stella is 16 months and 2 weeks old

Stella is 16 months and 2 weeks old. She has 12 teeth which is two less than Amy at this age (but that is another post for another day.) She sleeps from 7pm until 6.30am and has a dummy but isn’t as attached to it as her sister was. Stella likes to climb and hide behind things. She […]

Amy – assessment 4 years 1 month

Seriously. I just can’t seem to keep up with the weeks right now, but thankfully I am home tonight for the first time in over a week. I am just so busy with photography, playgroup committee, preschool talks and endless tasks to do with my photography business, which is coming, I promise. Its just the […]

A will as strong as steel

This is a face we are very familar with. The face of a Stella who wants something she can’t have. Or shouldn’t have. This child is wilful, strong, obstinate and adorable in equal doses. Thankfully we have the adorable to counterbalance the other more negative personality traits. Its very interesting to me to watch my […]

My first born – Amy at 3 years 10 months

I interrupt the recently scheduled holiday recap for a post about my eldest daughter. I need to talk about Amy because this child has been a complete mystery to me over the last few weeks. Before we left for WA we were having a really hard time with Amy. All the small things that we had taken […]

Catching up
Happy Birthday my precious Stella

My precious Stella, today you are One. Today is the anniversary of the day that we met you for the first time although in the instant of meeting you it was as though I had known you always. I think back to those days before you arrived and I marvel that it was you inside […]

Spreading her wings

(apologies for the cheesey blog title. I couldn’t resist.) We went to a special birthday party in the park yesterday. A close friend has a colleague who’s son has been diagnosed with a disease that is going to make his life very hard over the coming years. The company threw the family a birthday party and […]

HELP – advice please

Help, my crazy child who was just a BABY a short time ago has decided once and for all that she is a big girl and doesn’t want to wear nappies at night. Just a quick recap, we had a shocker toilet training my stubborn and strongwilled daughter but when she finally decided she was ready, […]

Milestone of note

Tomorrow will be Amy’s first day at preschool. I have agonised over this decision for many months, years even, since putting her name down at a small privately run preschool down the road from us shortly after we moved into the area. I have found it very hard to navigate the schooling system here in […]
