26 – 52

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

We visited Mount Penang Parklands in Kariong today. We've never been there before, so we asked some friends to join us and enjoyed the winter sun. All the kids enjoyed exploring the different gardens and plants, and splashing in the water.

Mahlia: She's not been herself the last couple of weeks, and has been craving time with me, which is very unlike her as she normally demands daddy's attention. I've tried to spend some one-on-one time with her when I can, and I've cherished the moments we've shared.

Leila: I took her to the doctors this week to have her ears checked. Her behaviour recently, especially her defiance, made me wander if there was something more to it. The doctor confirmed glue ear and we're seeing a specialist next month. I'm trying to speak clearer and gain eye contact when speaking to her. We'll see what becomes of it!

Archer: He has thoroughly embraced the finger foods! Although he will eat from a spoon when daddy feeds him, not so much with me. He loves sitting up and being a part of the action now. That first tooth is still yet to cut but it's oh so close!
