Linking up with Jodi with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.
Kitty: Earlier this year your Grandad rescued and restored a couple of bikes for you and your sister to play on and you’ve happily toddled up and down our little patio on it, but now you want to take your bike to the park and you decided that you needed a bike helmet. You actually didn’t want to go on the bike at Grandma and Grandad’s house until we’d gone to get you one. It seems like a very good idea to me, if you always wear a helmet to cycle when you’re four, you probably still will when you’re bigger and nearer faster things than ducks, so we all went out to find you one. It’s pink and white and has flowers and says Girls across the top and I’m just going to hazard a guess that you really really like it. Long may that continue sweetheart.

Elma: My smiley girl, twirling in the late afternoon sunshine. You’ve really grown up over the summer, all hint of the toddler is gone as we start to count down the last few months until you’re three, may be the littlest in our family for your age but you are a most sweetly determined young lady and you’re definitely not a forgotten middle child.

Pip: This is possibly one of my favourite pictures ever of you wee boy. You were digging in the herb garden with your stick (as you do) when your Daddy walked through the back door and called your name. You looked up at him with such joy; joy at being home, joy at digging in the garden and joy at having all your favourite people around you.
