3/52






Zeph: Grubby boy hands, timber off cuts and a tiny skateboard. One word - content. (Eli, we have your tiny skateboard)

Pippi: Honey Girl, this photo (and those that accompany it) will be on display at your 21st birthday party. You are outrageous. It's not uncommon for me to find you running a bath for yourself, wearing nothing but a pair of goggles. On this occasion you announced 'mum, i'm wearin' my doggles in da barf. I'm puttin' my head under the wader. Yook mum!' (can't help laughing out loud every time i look at this)

As always, i'm joining in on the 52 Project and will see you on Sunday evening for the Stills Collection link up.

  1. These photos are priceless. I'm doing this too this year. Time for more photos/blogging/reflecting/journalling. It helps that I now have a DSLR. Can't put the bloody thing down now!

    Happy new year you! x

  7. Ha! My little Isabelle (the same age has Pippi) has been doing EXACTLY the same thing - walking around in her brothers orange goggles from his builders set ... according to said brother they make her 'invisable'. Cute pics x

  8. Does lady baby remind you of you? She is such a vivacious, gorgeous little girl!

    Anyway, loved your latest comment. I have no problems getting zits on my chin whatsoever...

  11. We have goggles like that at our place and they are a dead set favourite with all the kids, 8,5 and 2 years old. We have some very similar shots! Sone toys attain such high status over others- and it's often very unexpected! Lovely snapshots in time of your 2.

  25. She is pure light that baby girl of yours! She will be your best bud forevermore! And Mr. Zeph and his inquisitiveness will change the world for the better one day. Wishing you beautiful days. :) x

  27. Gorgeous Em! I just love 2 year olds (and very nearly 2 year olds) 'accents' - the way they drop letters and change words. So sweet. Xo
