Wow where did the last year go……….

Hi there, David here with a bit of a self indulgent post.

Its only a few weeks till Soukie turns 1 – this year has flown by.

When Joshua was born we had hunted high and low for a special baby grow – we found one that was a cross between a cow’s print and a Zebra print.  When Soukie was cooking we spent months looking for a special baby grow for her but somehow never managed to find one that floated our boat.

So when Soukie was born we decided her first outfit would be Joshua’s first outfit.

When Joshua was born I had a canvas made up of the following photos – its only the picture not the page – that is taken from his first year album.

So today I dug out Soukie’s first day photos and made up another canvas (being sent to the lab now) – We shot it in such a way that they will end up facing each other on the wall.

Here are the two photos.



Where does the time go ?
