Elma Family Kitty Photography Pip The 52 Project

10/52 {the 2016 portraits}


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: This week for World Book Day you didn’t have to dress up, so no pictures of you as Harry Potter just yet, but you did have to learn a poem over half term.  Not only did you have The Ning Nang Nong nailed by the time your turn came to tell it to your class but you also were chosen to be one of three from your class who said their poems in assembly in front of the whole school.  Your teacher told us that you did really really well and I am just so proud of you.  When I was five there was nothing on this earth that could have persuaded me into standing up and speaking in front of my school, I was far too shy so I love that you have all the confidence I lacked.  At the end of your school day and my work at home day we two ran on ahead to the park while Daddy got the little ones ready and I really treasured the time with just my biggest girl, goofing around and getting to actually play with you without also needing to hold a baby brother or sister; it was awesome. As are your funny faces!

Space for the Butterflies - the 52 project

Elma: I remember when you were too little to do more than crawl around underneath these steps.  I remember when I held your hand and helped you hop along them one by one.  And now look at you striding out not a hand to hold in sight.  You were playing at being a pirate (because pony tail equals pirate) on your way to the look our post to check out for ships on the horizon through the kaleidoscope.

Pip: I had quite a few possible photos for this week’s portrait, but then I clicked onto this one and knew it had to be.  Your expression says it all: joy and mischief in equal measure!

      Our park always has such great light at the end of the day too – it’s on the top of the hill, so cold but sunny!

      Hello,Article intéressant, de mon côté je les lave au savon (Marseille ou Alep) depuis quelques années, ils ne s'en portent pas plus mal qu'au shampoing, en plus ça fait des économies :)A ce propos, quelle est ton opinion sur les savons ?Sinon, je suis comme toi persuadé que certains problèmes (cheveux gras, irritations) seront résolus lorsque mon corps sera &qp;&;réuarétquoto, ou du moins en meilleure forme.J'ai déjà eu quelques améliorations si je compare mon état par rapport à celui d'il y a quelques années.

    It’s not that I don’t love Kitty’s and Elma’s photos, but I really think you need a coffee table book just of Pip’s expressions! Have I said that before? I just had a feeling of deja vue as I wrote it!

      Not that I can remember but I think you may be on to something, he’s hilariously expressive!
