A portrait of each of my children once every week for 2015.
Kitty: Sitting quietly on the sofa playing with your new sticker book you looked so serene, but as soon as you spotted the camera you produced this fabulously cheesy grin and launched towards me and I love it; there’s a mixture of pure mischief and glee in your eyes!

Elma: This week has been all about your new haircut. You were so proud to go on a special trip with Daddy and when you came back you told me “the man cut my hair Mama!”. I think you look even cuter with your new bob and fringe, and while your hair is always going to look a bit flyaway until it grows in a bit better but at least now you can see where you’re going. We went to feed the ducks that afternoon and I loved it, your big sister likes the idea of feeding the ducks but only from a distance, whereas you were right up there, with pigeons hopping around our toes throwing bread into the pond as hard as you could.

Pip: The best knitwear model ever. One day after you turned 6 months you started to roll and now we’re working on sitting up. I know you’ll get it soon and it’s so sweet watching you be wobbly and proving yourself up on your hands.
