10/52




1. My Sprocket through the trampoline mesh. We've just confirmed my Sprocket has long term fluid in his inner ears and massive hearing loss. He's getting grommets in a few weeks, but it breaks my heart to think he's hearing the world so indistinctly. This photo seems to me to sum up his hearing loss- this is how blurrily he hears the world. It explains a lot and we hope for great things when he gets his grommets. But... his first operation... my little boy...

2. My Poppet and I in summer light, just back from the pool. This summer is dragging on, but there are some wonderful moments.

Joining with the lovely Jodi of Che and Fidel for a portrait of my kids once a week for a year.

    As for summer dragging on...well, winter is dragging on here, so I'd gladly trade. seriously.

  2. Done deal! You take the next week of heatwave and I will absolutely take as much snow and cold as you can send over!

  6. Oh, that's big news, Kirsty. I hope the grommets do the trick and all is okay. What an amazing photo to illustrate your thoughts.

    I hope the sun comes out with its stunning light, just as in your other photo. x
