Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

31/52 {The 52 Project}


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


Kitty:  Another week and another picture of you on the zip wire.  You love it up there and you’re absolutely fearless.  And it’s on the zip wire that I can see how much you’re changing and how fast.  In the winter I had to pass it up to you and hold it while you climbed carefully on, and then run beside you just for reassurance. Now I can be helping Elma along the beam and you’re up and off with a flying run up.

Elma: And where Kitty has the zip wire, you Miss Elma have your swings.  Preferably really high and really fast,and with Daddy pushing.  Mummy’s muscles are apparently a poor comparison.  But that means that I get to take pictures, and try to capture just a sense of your sheer joy . My happy little girl in her favourite spot!

Pip: You just get better and better at standing. It’s amazing how much can change in a month.  When the health visitor saw you at ten months you weren’t pulling up and your standing was very wobbly, and now look at you.  You pull up on anything and everything and hang on with one hand.  And yes, I know, you want to go on the zip wire too.  Soon my sweet, soon.
