Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.
Kitty: I’m cheating this week and I’m utterly unapologetic about it because I just couldn’t decide between your two photos. The first was taken on your very last morning at nursery, and is a reminder that however much you are taller than your friends (and you are quite a lot taller than all of them after your last growth spurt) you are still very little, and always my little girl. And the second, just look at you. Captured mid air jumping onto the zip wire; tall strong and fearless. They’re both you; different sides of the same wonderful girl.

Elma: This week you had a little sip of the end of Daddy’s glass of ginger beer (the non alcoholic variety) and you loved it. You also then talked solidly for the next half an hour and it was wonderful, you were colouring in and it was a complete stream of consciousness, “shall I have the blue one, oh no this is the black one and then I’m going to do the pink bit and uh oh where has the pink gone, oh there it is, now I’m doing the blue. Mummy! did you know I’m doing the blue?”

Pip: Oh what can I say, except that this might be my favourite photo of you yet. It was taken while we were redoing the netting on the strawberry bed and you just kept climbing straight in. It’s the mud everywhere, the cheeky smile, and the fact that you have found a strawberry to munch, even if it’s coming with a side of soil. Oh little sweetheart we do love you!
