and so it's December!

And just like that it's December already!

Some years drag on endlessly, but when you have kids, they race by. Sometimes leaving you in the dust. And confusion as well! With a newborn and a toddler who is perfecting the art of rebellion, it's certainly getting harder and harder to keep up. There is a saying that someone told me or I read on a blog somewhere in the early days when I had my elder child, which went like this, The days are endless but the years fly by. And boy oh boy, does it ring true for me.

A good friend (you know who you are!)told me she loves her two kids the most when they are fast asleep, and I too have hopped on that train of thought. I love them in the daytime, but adore them when they are asleep. Literally, gush over them, relish everything they did during the day, even the naughty things.

But in the meantime, while I digest the thought that in a month another year will go by, let me share some pretty moments caught by my camera in the past few months.

Wandering in the garden and noticing the new shoots of the guava tree. That's E in a pretty dress running around, btw. 

Arranging and rearranging little pots on the terrace! 

Nothing like a cup of coffee to perk you up mid-morning. And cake too! Of course, there has to be cake!

Thank you Hena. Yes, by the end of the day, one never knows what they suddenly decide to rebel against.
