Daily Photo Challenge - Week 47

We are on the home stretch of this challenge now with just five weeks left.  And tonight I was going through my year's worth of photos and I feel so pleased that I have come this far.  It hasn't been easy, through morning sickness at the start of the year, to no light in the middle of the year, to being the size of a whale in recent times to dealing with a toddler and a newborn in the last few weeks.  But in spite of all this, I have a single photo for every single day, a memory whether it be good or bad - its a memory.

If you are passionate about photography, or want to learn to use your camera a little better I highly recommend doing this challenge.  It ain't easy, but dam its rewarding.

Here are my shots for the week - a mixed bag really with many being snapshots, going to try harder next week!

Daily Photo Challenge 44, 45 and 46

Yes I know its been a while...

My events from the last three weeks -

1. Traveled to Hamilton Island and back (northern Queensland for those not in the know!), where we experienced being held up at customs for drugs (kids meds), two random explosive tests, being locked out of our apartment by Mr A with Mr H fast asleep inside, and winning an award for our business - the best performing admin office in Auckland - nice to see some of our super hard work being rewarded!

2. Reached a feeding milestone with Harry - finally it no longer hurts to feed him

3. Learnt to never leave a toddler in charge of a shower head unless you want to lose your power for the night

4. Finally finding my groove as a mum of two

5. Visited my old workplace and A's old daycare - brought tears to my eyes to see him cuddle his old friends and not want to leave when he hasn't let me leave him anywhere since all my problems during pregnancy

6. Hit and miss for photos over the last three weeks - still in a haze of changing nappies, feeding and sleep deprivation

7. Enough said, here are the photos :)
