A Time To Remember
I recommend everyone to have a maternity photoshoot done and generally to take many pictures during your pregnancy. Your children will love to see how your body grew them on the inside! These 9 months will change your life for ever. They might both feel like they are going by very fast and very slow. … Continue reading A Time To Remember
The Day We First Saw You

Tantrums are not bad
JJ is now 19 months old and he is forming an opinion which is not always the same as ours. A few times we have had situations where someone has said, "ohh he is having a tantrum".
