Every year - I look forward to and anticipate the chaos that November is for us. 
Two girls - two years & 1 week apart. I wouldn't say that we planned that very well!
But what it does mean, is that we celebrate, A LOT in November. 

This year, they turned six and eight.  It has been weeks and weeks, months even of "how many sleeps now Mum?", "Am I nearly six?", "Turning eight is better than turning six you know!"....

I can't believe we are almost at the end of October already! 

Highlights from this month have included a lost 'first' tooth and visit from the tooth fairy, a  crazy dream about being chased by a corn cob on roller-skates which has since given us endless amusement and most excitedly - we have a walker!

In between the excited conversations, waving goodbye to our cubby house as it left on a crane this morning, my exceptional culling of all things the kids will never notice as being gone and the packing that seems never ending – I can’t help but think about everything that’s happened while we’ve lived here.

Most importantly, we moved in as a family of five and we’re leaving as a family of six. We’ve celebrated first days of school, lost teeth, new jobs and giggled about footprints left by the Easter Bunny. Our chalkboard wall tradition for each milestone started here too. And on top of every happy memory, I feel as though I’ve fallen deeper in love with photography within these walls. I vividly remember wishing like mad that the house would have good enough light when we first moved in and as I leave, I find myself hoping the same about the new one.
