Space for the Butterflies - the 52 Project

Kitty: when you were a teeny tiny girl and struggling to fall asleep in your pram I did sometimes find that speed walking helped you to settle.  Somehow my fast walking pace must have the right cadence for you, and maybe, just maybe, a flicker of memory from that time is still stored in your brain because last Sunday when you were taking your babies for a walk around Grandma and Grandad’s drive you were sprinting.  Properly, full on, both feet off the ground sprinting – brilliant! This has been a lovely week for you; you came home with star of the week for some good work and a lovely attitude to learning.  It’s the latter that makes me so very very proud of you; you’re growing up at speed and it’s a pleasure to get to know the girl you are becoming.

Elma: oh my little miss cheeky! I took a series of photos one morning with the sun pouring into Pip’s bedroom long before it was any sensible sort of getting up time; pictures that capture you giggling and peeking over the windowsill to take a look at the morning, and yet it’s this picture that I couldn’t resist sharing – asked to smile yet pulling funny faces, and arms outstretched for a hug – it’s you to a tee!

Pip: Monkey see, Monkey do – anything the girls can do, so can you – at least in your mind.  So when your sister momentarily abandoned her scooter you dropped your hockey stick like a hot potato and made a beeline to try it out.  Which in your case means standing on it and looking very pleased with yourself!!
