McKeating Wedding

What a beautiful winter wedding in the city.  The merging of two families and two cultures celebrated at the Merchant Hotel among loved ones the world over.  How special for the newlyweds and wonderful for me to be a part of.  All the best for a long and happy marriage Brendan and Annie!

Another precious McLoughlin to add to the bunch - though this one is of the Milverton clan.  What a sweetheart!  You all look fab, it was so great to see you both and it was so lovely to meet this little guy. Enjoy this very special time (well...most of it!)

Another Happily Ever After

Once upon a time I became yours and you became mine
And we'll stay together through both the tears and the laughter
Because that's what they call Happily Ever After...

Another beautiful day, beautiful couple and fantastically perfect wedding.  
Congratulations to Clodagh and Andrew and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

Introducing...Mary-Jane McLoughlin

Ok, so we had a few ideas in our heads of baby sweetly sleeping, hats and tutus...they were all great in theory, but the reality was that Mary-Jane was not going to sleep, no matter how hot the room was and how long she was soothed for.  Her head had outgrown the hats and at almost four months, positioning her in a way she wasn't going to reject to, was a bit of a struggle.  She wanted to be part of the action and it was her way or the highway!  So, wakey-wakey photos it was.  But, look at how adorable she is - the image of her older siblings with the most gorgeous little face.  Sure enough, she fell asleep as soon as she left the room.  :)

My gorgeous baby boy...

Thursday, 13 February 2014

Ten fingers, Ten toes 
She's laughter and teardrops 
So small and brand new 
And amazingly angelic 
She's sent to bless you 
She's one special Baby 
The best of life's treasure 
And will grant and bless you
Many hours of great pleasure.

And another beautiful baby...Little Rosa who joined "big" sister Orla and "big" brother Senan 10 short weeks ago. Mary and Barry certainly have a busy house with 3 under 3 but of course they wouldn't have it any other way! Welcome to the world Rosa. You're a wee angel.

Baby Johnny

If I could give you one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes. Only then would you realize how special you are to me.

This is what has been taking up most of my time, energy and focus these days. My beautiful baby boy is now 6 weeks old and he is such a treasure. People ask "is he a good baby" and I always think that is such a strange thing to ask -all babies are good, but really, this is one good baby. He is a happy little guy who loves cuddling and sleeping. What more could you ask for? I didn't think I wanted four children when I was growing up and I knew life would be pretty chaotic once number four came, but now that Johnny is here, I cannot imagine our lives without him. He is an absolute sweetheart and blessing to our family and I am enjoying every (well almost every) minute of him.
