Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

26/52 {The 52 Project}


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

Space for the Butterflies - the 52 Project

Kitty: No watermelon is ever going to smile as broadly as you do.  This was taken at supper after your first session at school and it was lovely to see you happy and confident.

Elma: Our first trip to the splash pool this year.  As we were running around the house getting bathing costumes and towels ready you came running after me to make sure I packed your swimsuit “with the pink handles”.  I can remember your sister playing in this pool in that cozzie and it seems like it was yesterday.

Pip: Oh that cheeky grim.  That means that any second now you’re going to high tail it to the wall and sit there on all fours rocking back and forth while I hold onto you and wonder whether I can get a little baby pen for the garden so you can explore in peace.

I really can’t believe I’m half way through this project already, it sounds so trite to say so but they’ve all three grown so much while I wasn’t looking, especially Pip – he just looks so little here now looking back and at the time we thought he was looking ever so grown up!
