4/52 {the 2016 Portraits}

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

Space for the Butterflies - the 52 Project

Kitty: drinking milk in the little den we made but still wanting to keep half an eye on what the rest of us were doing! I have a picture of your brother in almost exactly the same pose from a week or so ago and it made me giggle to see yet one more similarity in the pair of you.

Elma: Sprinting back down the path from ballet class and over you went onto both knees.  Scooped up and brought home to Daddy’s first aid clinic (a lifetime of bumps and bruises on the hockey pitch having made him something of an expert on bumps and scraped knees), we patched you up and then added plasters.  They’re not actually over your scrapes because they weren’t big enough and because your scrapes needed to air so they’re more of a consolation prize, but you were quite impressed with needing two, and all this week whenever I’ve got home from work you’ve given me an update on how they’re healing.

Pip: It is going to be the year of looks of mischief from you little man isn’t it! This one so clearly says “I’m sitting nicely now…” And what were you planning by any chance?

    Your kids are growing up so fast. I love the matching plasters and that mug looks so big! x

    What is it with the lens caps? My littlest is always after mind! Hope the boo boos mend quickly–band aids always make mind feel better.

    Lovely portraits!

    Plasters always make a patient feel better, even if not applied directly to the wound! Poor Elma! And great captures of the other two as well. as much as it’s lovely to have beautiful shots of the children on perfect outings, it’s always very special to have home photos too.
