Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.
Kitty: All the time spent with your aunt and uncle is clearly wearing off because not only were you flying around on the battery powered tractors but you jumped on the big blue tractor and pedalled all the way to the top of the hill (with a little help from your godfather) and then freewheeled all the way back down again, smiling the whole way.

Elma: You’re just big enough to climb onto the see-saw at the park and it’s rapidly becoming your favourite, even if you’re not quite big enough to touch the ground and I think sometimes we must look rather funny with me, wearing your brother, weighing down the other end. But I think it’s fun too; long may you want to play see-saw with me.

Pip: I’m not sure this picture really needs any words does it. We took you to a splash pad to beat all splash pads and while your little big sister would have nothing of it and curled up in the buggy, you were off, sprint crawling into as many waterfalls as you could find and sitting determinedly by your favourite waterspout, running your fingers through it and splashing fat hands in the puddles around you. Joy personified.
