Our little ballerina points her toes and twirls around in her adorable skirt,
sweetly gifted from her Auntie Megan.
Running wild and free.... his favourite way to be.
So much joy in such a little body!
Nothing quite like a post-bath baby all cosily bundled in a big towel!
This gentle scene made me stop a moment. Not just because of my gorgeous little boy, quietly peeping out of his towel, all fuzzy and fresh. But I felt so thankful I unintentionally photographed our change table. A strange thing perhaps, but we bought this gorgeous item when pregnant with Lily. We got it second hand - it had been lovingly hand made by the clever couple we bought it from. Solid wood, super sturdy and higher than any of the other change-tables we came across, it was a great find.
Ok, so the activity that takes place on it is not always so wonderful!! But at the same time, a lot of sing-songs, baby chats, dressing and undressing, smiles and coos have occurred on this little table, now on it's third go-round. A significant part of this season, it will be hard to let it go when the time comes.
Project 52: A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.
Highlights of the week that was...
|It may have been sunny but it sure was frosty too when we ventured out to our|
favourite cafe to treat my lovely Mum. Miles was bundled up like a cute
|Nana and Miles... despite the yawn, we had a lovely time!|
|She's testing out her physical skills and it's my job to sit back and watch her go for it.|
We couldn't resist ducking out to the new National Arboretum for the opening of an incredible new playground. It was packed out, it was gorgeous and it is sure to be a new favourite family destination!
|She nurtures. He adores.|
|Hiking his bounty up the hill... this incredible hill just made for rolling down and|
|Incredible new playground. It was too crowded to fully explore on Open Day - but we will be back soon!!|
|My, how she's grown. Bold as can be, she introduced herself and sang a song|
with a little friend at our church Talent night. A far cry from last time,
she was so determined to be brave!
|After reaching a special milestone, Lily and I had a little afternoon together that|
included painting nails. She got to choose the colours for herself and for me!
And she painted my nails. And I wore them in public for two days!
|Mmmm. Why wear the same colour on both hands, says Lily! Clearly, neither|
of us are manicurists, huh! But we had so much fun anyway :)
|Most nights Mark invents some new form of carrying the kids to bed. This one was a real hit!|
