Linking up with Jodi and Living Arrows with a portrait of each of my children once every week for 2016.

Space for the Butterflies - the 52 Project

Kitty: I had a little present to give you on Monday after you got home from school, and when I went to get it I asked you to close your eyes and put our your hand.  And in that moment you were so very sweet and so very very little again, every inch my baby, as you will always be, no matter how tall you get.

Elma: I’d forgotten just how much fun a three year old can be, but you are reminding me every day.  This week you told your Daddy that when you’re a bit bigger we will have two Pips, the one upstairs sleeping and another one, and when he asked where the other one was coming from you replied:

“Mummy will get it next time she goes to the hospital”
“What makes you think that sweetie?”
“I looked it up on the internet.”

You’re at the perfect age where you’re intensely logically and at the same time totally wrong and it’s just so sweet!

Pip: Someone asked me this week if there was any food that you don’t like, and if there is, we really haven’t discovered it and we’re fairly wide ranging foodies.  Possibly a really hot curry, but we always dial yours down to baby spicy levels and you wolf it up.  But bananas you would chain eat, even while all the time keeping a watchful eye on the rate at which Mama is eating her satsuma to make sure that you can claim the last segment.
