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

Space for the Butterflies - the 2016 portraits

Kitty: Sitting out in the garden while your Daddy and I tried to put a veg bed; muddy knees, messy hair and the Christmas colouring book (naturally!)  This was the first afternoon of the year when we’d been able to play outside without it having to be running around sort of play to keep warm enough to stay out and you were so excited when we said that yes you could stay out all afternoon. Roll on the summer and many afternoons just like it!

Elma: You can see again! We finally managed a long overdue haircut this week and you are just as cute as a button with it. This look was a combination of “what is she doing?” and “do I have to do that?” directed at your sister; an unusually contemplative look for a little girl that’s more often bouncing off the ceiling!

Pip: This week you have two pictures, and I’m completely unapologetic about it because I spent several days trying to decide between them and failing.  I cannot look at them without wanting to scoop you up in an enormous hug for just being so ridiculously cute. Muddy but happy – long may you stay that way sweet boy of mine.
