‘Time’ ⏱...One of the only things in life that once it’s gone you can’t get back and with all that said I give God thanks for the skills he’s blessed me with ‘using a camera’ both in photography and videography because those skills allow my family to hold onto precious memories in an artistic way that is such a joy to look back on as time passes. We’ve literally blinked and Heze (our eldest) is on his way to double digits (which feels insane 😅) however I don’t feel like we’ve missed any of it thanks to all the above. Our ‘BLONDE CARAMEL TORNADO’ Hazariah-Reu is growing up at an alarming rate however we’ve enjoyed and we’ll continue to enjoy every single minute of it and thanks to platforms such as @instagram and @youtube we’ll continue to share it with you our beloved Grimwade Gang members. God bless Grimwade Gang! ✌🏼✌🏽✌🏾 #time#timeflies#art#photography#videography#thegrimwadefamily#thegrimwadegang#youtube#instagram#capturethemoment#growinguptoofast#memoriesforlife

Ok so I'm only 2 weeks late in posting the 10 month milestone pic 😬 I did actually take it on the right day but as you can see Avaya wasn't being the most cooperative 🤦♀️ and this pic of her completely ignoring me and the camera was the best I could get! I wasn't going to post but now if I post an 11 month pic in a couple of weeks time I'll be all out of sync and it just won't be right 😂 so her is #10monthsold#babygirl#growinguptoofast#slowdownlittleone#beautifulgirl#discoverunder1k
Mali’s been under the weather lately but is finally starting to feel better 🥰⭐️🎉🌟 Had his first parents evening at nursery today, excellent report of course 😂 and soon he’ll be three! Where does the time go? 😜
they say we're growing up
and they're not lying because
we've got summers under our skin, the kind that doesn't cut through skin and remains with you like a happy memory, instead
i can't keep track of how things change and how people change
because we went from tight ponytails and red uniforms to ties that kept on choking us till we loosened them, didn't we?
because these days i look at photographs and i realise that many people we valued have left and we've been fearing change like death and yet managing to survive this storm like it's something commonplace,
but then this is how growing up feels like, right? rapidly receding tides of time and it's wounds and maybe we will make it through this one time if fate's on our side but these days i don't even have anyone to pray to because god was just a ploy to not try dying
maybe at midnight, i listen to julia michaels sing"what a time, what a time, what a time for you and i" and i think maybe she is right
what a time, for us,
because at the end of all this,
atleast we are alive. —Saptaparna, we've been changing.
My little baby 🦛 turned 6 months old yesterday. She’s the best baby and I may be biased but I don’t care! She’s working on sitting up on her own and has recently discovered how to put her binky in her mouth all by herself! She has just gotten over her first 🤒 and even though she felt like 💩 she was still all smiles. No sign of any 🦷 yet but she chews on anything in sight so it’s not long before one sprouts! She loves 🍠 🍎 🥑 🍌 but not a big fan of 🍑. We’re looking forward to spending our first holiday season with this amazing little person 🥰☃️🥳♊️ #mackenzieroosevelt#sixmonthsold#geminibaby#growinguptoofast

These kids growing up so fast! Soon they'll be flying the nest. 😥
(still only 3 hatched)
My sweet face little girl. You have captured our hearts in so many ways, you grow and change and learn everyday right in front of our eyes. Your personality is shining through my little weirdo 😍 #growinguptoofast

Our little party animal turned TWO this week! This mama has been under the weather with the flu for the past few days 🤒 so here is a like #flashbackfriday to this past Monday!
We kept Grayson’s birthday super simple this year. To be honest at first I was a little upset that we couldn’t coordinate a date to throw a big party like we did last year, but I’m so glad it worked out this way because Grayson had the BEST day and that’s all that matters!
I took a half day from work and took him to Chick-fil-a and the trampoline park. Then we celebrated at home with cake and ice cream with just our immediate family.
It made me realize that it’s not the party that’s important (although I know next year we will have one 😜) What mattered most was that Grayson was surrounded by all the people who love him most and was able to blow out his birthday candle over and over (and over) again!
While it’s always so much fun to plan and throw parties, sometimes it’s nice to keep it simple, too! How do you celebrate your kids’ birthdays? Do you go all out with parties or keep it simple with just family?
Madam was very brave getting her jabs today and she just loved getting her sticker 😀 Thankfully no more until big school! I remember the turmoil of her getting them when she was little, more so on my part but now she's a big girl, it was so very different. She just took the jab in her stride. #proudmummy#biggirl#growinguptoofast#bravegirl #💉
Three years ago, I became a momma for the last time. It’s amazing what each one of my kids have taught me about the world and myself. Pippy has taught me patience like no other! She’s full of energy and strong willed and determined. She loves playing with the big kids and wants to conquer anything by.herself! She loves her dolls and wants to play hockey with her brother. She’s got skid marks often from going from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds flat. And she’s beautiful and we are working hard on the importance of being kind. She will move mountains one day and I’m so looking forward to watching her make her mark on the world. Keep watch out for Pippa K. Three years ago today, the world definitely got a true force!

Always love sweet father daughter moments with these 2! Every year Scott is sure to capture these moments with his beautiful daughter Sophia, what a Dad ! Sophia it’s a joy watching you grow up in front of my lens each year !
School admissions was not on my mind yet. I could easily wait another 6 months. However, this mid-term enrollment at their age of two-year-seven-month was purely child-led. Yes, my twincesses had a greater role in deciding that they wanted to attend "class"
Being in daycare which has a pre-school wing, and being allowed to attend few classes on days they'd be cranky, is what I'm guessing, steered their decision .
I still haven't come to full terms with this new chapter in our lives, nonetheless I'm happy that these two are happy 💙💙 Carry on exploring and learning my darling girls! 🌟
