My life in instagram lately

So I know that I said that I would post my birthing story next but I really wanted to show you what's been going on in my life recently.

I apologize in advance for the sheer volume of Noah photos. I do hang out with him all day everyday after all!

Afternoon Sunday naps
Midday cuddles
At a friend's wedding
My new camera and love
Playing the chocolate game
My life
His first taste of watermelon, hooked!
more chocolate game
My first quilt all finished
At Bradbury pools
Frozen meals for Noah

So it's been a while since I've been blogging and I've moved from Wordpress to Blogger... woo hoo!! To read any of my previous posts go HERE. For those of you just joining me My name is Ellen and I am originally from Adelaide, South Australia but now I live in NSW Australia. I was married to my sweetheart, Regan in March 2010 and inherited a beautiful step-daughter, Ella. We then decided that we wanted to add to our fun little family and in August of 2011 I gave birth to sweet little (well actually 11lb 2oz) Noah Benjamin.

I am now a stay at home mother living in our very own house and filling my days with playtime with Noah and my newfound love of photography. I hope to fill in my family living all over the world but especially my parents who are currently serving a mission in Finland for our church and who have never seen our house or met our son.

I recently got a Canon 600D and 50mm 1.8 lens for my birthday which is actually in Februrary but I just couldn't wait with Noah growing so fast! I still am only using the auto settings as I haven't had time to learn but I am loving it so much already! I hope to get better at it but I have loved playing around with light and compositions.

Stay tuned because I will be putting up my birth story next :) Don't worry I'll cut out the scary stuff!
