A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.
Mahlia: An emotional week in the build up to her party, but she had such a good time with 18 of her nearest and dearest little friends here. Opening up her presents, she took her time enjoying all of the homemade cards and carefully unwrapping the thoughtful gifts. One lucky little/big girl. This week she also met her new teacher that she'll have at Steiner next year, and for the following 5 years. He seems lovely and I'm feeling happy with our decision to send her there. She was extremely nervous and clingy but I can see her fitting in really well there, and I've heard that the current kindergarten class that she will be joining next year in year one, are absolutely lovely!
Leila: We had another party to go to on Saturday. Leila headed straight for the food, and once she'd filled her tummy she ventured into the pool with all of the other kids. She was quite overwhelmed having so many people at ours for Mahlia's party but she had fun with her friends too. She's been making up some hilarious songs this week, yesterday's one on our walk was all about a big leaf she had found. Her imagination blows me away, as do those big blue eyes.
Archer: I'm enjoying every last minute of these last couple of weeks of my baby, before he officially enters toddlerhood. I'm struggling with it! He's started copying us, with sounds and yawns, and has a funny fake laugh he chuckles out, together with a scrunched up nose. He wakes up form his naps and immediately wants to be outside, pointing and grunting towards the door and the down to the backyard.
