Beautiful Amy, You are 3 years old!

Dear Beautiful Amy. You are three years old, and I can't believe how fast time is flying. You are my big girl, and you wont hear anyone call you a baby without a stern word. At home you are fiercely independent, following in the much bigger footsteps of Lily and James, you keep up with [...]

A Family Portrait In March {2016}

In February, I wrote about our month being filled with Chicken Pox, we continued the theme into March, with my two littlest ladies getting it. Everyone says its much easier to deal with when they are babies, but for us that wasnt the case! Ava was our worst affected, and the poor thing couldn't even [...]

A Family Portrait In January {2016}

I think January has a bad reputation. It follows a month filled with love and alcohol, where everyone spends and eats far too much (or is that just me?) It's still cold and wet outside, and there is no sign of spring. Despite all that, I think that its one of my favourite months of [...]

Young Love

A few weeks ago Mr T noticed something unusual. James was waiting in the school playground for the doors to open with his Dad and Lily, he asked if he could go play with his friends, but a few moments later he turned around and said, "I think I will go stand over here instead", [...]

Take a Photo With My Eyes Closed Mummy

I absolutely love child logic, and how children find magic in everything. I have been practicing taking photos on a DSLR camera this week, and Amy has been a very willing participant. She absolutely loves the camera and rewards us with some award-winning smiles. She pulls some brilliant expressions as she goes about her daily [...]
