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

Space for the Butterflies - the 52 Project

Kitty: The second youngest of your Daddy’s first cousins is about 20 months older than you but in bare feet there’e not a hair’s difference in height between you, which means that when he came to play at Grandma and Grandad’s last week the pair of you hit it off within minutes.  I’m not sure how often D plays Mummies and Daddies but you both got completely wrapped up in looking after your ‘baby’, right to the point that you were still giving care instructions about feeding and naps out of the car window as we pulled away.  And when it was his turn to pull out the toys you loved having a very gentle drive up and down on his quad bike.  Proof if ever it were needed that toys really are just toys.

And as for that gorgeous smile of yours – well this is what you were looking at:

It’s a good job Grandma has a flat roof so Daddy can rescue his drone isn’t it!

Elma: You were too little to be playing on quad bikes, and you didn’t want your scooter out so I was a little curious as to why you were so insistent on wearing your helmet to push your dolly’s pram.  The answer – if Daddy’s going to be flying his drone then you wanted to be wearing a helmet.  That may actually have been a pretty smart move.  See previous picture!

Pip: Armed (and that really is the right word) with your auntie’s old miniature stick, I have so many pictures of you playing hockey this week, but this is my favourite, and mostly because I look at that picture and I can see your Daddy even more clearly than normal, and you’re the spit of him at 18 months anyway.  This is a pose that I’ve seen a hundred times up and down hockey pitches on cold and windy Saturday afternoons and I suspect it won’t be too long before you’re joining in.
