Last week I mentioned to Alison that it was probably time to update our family photos since Milly has now joined our family. We were lucky to get a break in the rain this morning and sloshed through the mud at Waverley Lake while Alison took photos of us.
During the week Kobe has been asking how many people are in our family. I ask him what he thinks and he counts all of us and says 'five!'. I then remind him to count Daddy and Noah and he says 'there are seve people in our family now!'.
I always said I didn't want to have a blog header without Aaron and Noah in it, but I really wanted to include Milly in it too, so I decided to include a photo collage of Aaron and Noah that I have near my bed. I of course would much prefer to have Aaron and Noah's legs in the photo, but I love how it turned out.
Alison picked up a cool chair from the op shop just before we did the shoot which was fun to use.
Jay got quite emotional about having another family photo shoot without Aaron and Noah in it. Last time Alison took photos for us it was just two months after Aaron passed away. I remember that day as I just felt so empty and sad. The photos she took were beautiful but we were all just still in so much shock. We had forced smiles on our faces, but our hearts were broken.
I still feel so sad and so do the boys, but we have adjusted a lot better to life without them. It's very hard all the time but this photo shoot was a lot easier as I felt like our smiles were a lot more genuine.
There are a lot of other beautiful photos which I will share later. Thanks Alison for taking them for us.
I love them!
