Poppet - with her favourite book at the moment. Jane Ray's beautifully illustrated and beautifully written The Apple Pip Princess. We've been reading it at least once a day and often two or three times all week.

Sprocket - his Grandpa aims to turn him into a pigeon flyer. He's just released one of the young birds to the sky.

Littlest - my sleeping beauty - with her little doll from Paris. Paris was a bit of a disappointment (possibly because I had a flu that turned very nasty) but we found a very good toy shop and went a little bit wild on a we're-sorry-we dragged-you-half-way-around-the-world-and-it's all-so miserable way. Note: even the toy shop owners in Paris are snooty. This made me giggle between coughing.

Joining with Jodi for a portrait of my little ones once a week, every week in 2015. 


  1. That last photo is beautiful..............she's growing up...even though she's a baby.....adorable...

  2. Oh they're all lovely photos but especially your sleeping beauty, she looks so very cherubic!

  3. Oh, we love, love, love Jane Ray here! Have you seen any of her other books? Can You Catch a Mermaid was my little girl's favorite for a long time.
