Today is Father’s Day in Australia (just in case anyone hadn’t seen me banging on about my excellent gift guide for the past month…)!
What better day to dig a photo out of the archives – one that reminds me just how quickly time passes. Now that Hannah is a full-of-life 2.5 year old, it is sometimes hard to remember just how tiny and fragile she was in those first few weeks. I used to sit for hours and look at all of her tiny little details, with equal parts shock and amazement that somehow I had been entrusted with looking after this tiny human being. Back then she was easy to photograph, because she stayed still for hours at a time.
One thing that I have learnt over the past 2.5 years is that being dad is the greatest thing in the world. Today may well be a (deserved) day for dads all over Australia to be celebrated, but for me it is also a reminder of just how lucky I am to be Hannah’s dad.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Australian dads! For all of my international dad friends, today is a great opportunity to try on your thickest Australian accent and claim that you are 1/18th Australian. Come join the celebration!
As always on a Sunday, I’m linked up to the excellent #MySundayPhoto linky. It’s hosted by Darren Coleshill on the website Photalife. I highly recommend you click on the link (or the badge below) and check out everyone’s photos.
