6/52



a portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2013...

My Olive:  I held you in my arms in the early hours of this morning, those quiet moments just you and I are so precious and treasured.  The love in my heart overflows as you nuzzle your little nose into my neck and I feel your soft breath on my skin.  Tears roll down my cheeks and I am overcome by the deepest of emotions. You are divine..x

My Boys:  Nana took your first day pictures for me.  You headed off to begin the school year without mum and dad, patiently awaiting the news of a new brother or sister.  Its been a big week for you all, each of you dealing with the changes in our home in your own way.  A roller coaster of emotions have flowed as you adjust and find your place again. But ultimately, I am so proud to see, the enormity of love you have for your baby sister overrides any doubt and uncertainty.  She is one very lucky and blessed little girl to have you all as her brothers..x
