I remember only the giggling, coy pleading, not what was being requested.
But how could you say no to a face like this?! ;)
(I somehow manage)
'Lust for life' is the phrase that comes to mind, as I capture my son, literally leaping for joy.
This week my baby boy finally got his first proper hair cut. Sob.
Please excuse the absurd amount of photos in this post of his crazy, luscious curly locks, before the big chop. Oh, baby hair, why you gotta be soooo beautiful and yet so fleeting?!
The photos are helping me process my grief, haha :)
This kiddo got some solo shower time (eg not jostling with two siblings) thanks to a #3 (if you know what I mean!!!). He was absolutely enchanted with the water streaming down around him and his curls.... quietly watching, feeling, experiencing the rushing downpour in wonder. Just fascinated, enthralled Just as much as I am with him. Sigh. Love this kid.
Out to brunch, and introducing Miles to the joy of finishing off the cinnamon marscapone with his finger. Giggles abound :)
Project 52: A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2014.
More highlights from the week that was....
|'Mum, come quick!! Look!!! I'm making Miles sleeping!!!'. If only ;)|
|Wearing his halo of ringlets.... sigh.|
|I ask you, can you take too many photos of gorgeous ringlets?? Oh wait, don't answer that ;)|
|I will always accept whatever gift is in your precious little outstretched hand xx|
|The Marymead Fete rolled around again, always a highlight on our calendar. The kids loved the petting zoo, Miles was getting as close to the animals as he could through the fence!|
|A child was here....|
|Lily has been stitching away in her room... she added a sun with a smiley face and a little cloud. Precious or what?|
|'What the ???'|
|In the doghouse, but not too unhappy about it ;)|
|Grandad's Birthday. I made a little chocolate cake and told the kids they could decorate however they pleased. Needless to say, the sprinkle drawer got emptied with gusto ;)|
|Pretty much the most beautiful cake ever!?|
|Blue Steel, with triple the attitude. Oh, brother!!|
|'Hmmm, now what's left around here for me to destroy??' (Still has that furrowed little eyebrow, love it)|
|'Huh? What did you say will happen if I keep squeezing this balloon?? Are you sure??'|
