Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade life

Kitty: Eating strawberries on a very sunny and windy clifftop. Your t-shirt says

Put your Feet in the Sand
Let the Sun Kiss your Face
Enjoy Life

and you’d be hard pushed to find a better motto for the summer.  You’ve loved being by the sea and it’s been a pleasure to watch your delight.

Elma: Perched on a rock by the side of the path in a quiet corner of an Eden biome, you’d climbed up for a little sit down but you couldn’t stop turning to look at everything and everyone.  I love your curiosity even if sometimes your climbing exploits give me heart failure.

Pip: Oh Pip Squeak this week you discovered sand, and you liked it! Every time we turned around you were trying to shovel another handful into your mouth and unlike your sister last summer you didn’t yelp or pull any faces, you just went straight back for more.  It’s made for some very interesting nappies lately.

I am utterly thrilled and over the moon excited to be a finalist in Baby category of the 2015 MADs Awards. To have made it to the final six in the blogging equivalent of the Oscars is a dream come true. But truth be told, I would really love to win! And so if you enjoy reading here, please would you vote for me? It literally takes seconds, you don’t need to be in the UK or a blogger – parenting or otherwise – and it might just make my year!  Voting is open until 26th June.
