i really enjoyed looking through the touching photographs documenting the pregnancy and birth of photographers matt & nirrimi‘s baby girl alba. you can see all the photos at matt’s flickr and also read the birth story at nirrimi’s blog.
i was born 26 years ago today (eep). my family has a tradition that when one of the kids has their first birthday, they get their own cake & have carte blanche with it. mine was vanilla with pink icing, a sign of things to come - vanilla is still my favourite.
