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: Running down the hill, letting gravity take you faster and faster until you laughed out loud because it felt like flying.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade life

Elma: Spinning by a windmill in the breeze.  Compared to your oh so tall sister you seem so very little to me whirling as if you might take off any minute.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade life

Pip: High speed isn’t the word for it.  I turn around and two seconds later you’ve scrambled off in search of a new adventure.  It might be to explore the inside of the washing machine, or try to climb outside, or in this case, to make off with your sister’s empty ice cream tub.

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.
