"A portrait of my children, once a week every week in 2013"

Grace: Just like back at the beginning of the year, she was in heaven when I let her look through my wedding gown box during a recent afternoon of wardrobe re-organisation.  This time, there was not only my veil to try on, but also high heels embellished with diamantes and a sparkly necklace.  The look of excitement on her face was priceless.

Sophie: My little poppet grazed her knee tripping over in the car park on Tuesday.  After tears and mama cuddles, she sobbed, 'sorry Mummy', followed by 'Mummy no touch my knee, no touch my knee Mummy,' over and over and over the whole ride home.  Eventually, she let me dab some ointment on it, but I was reminded to 'stay clear of her wound' many more times that day...

Joining in with Jodi

Audrey peering out the window at her Dadda and this sweet 'welcome home' for Papa both captured my heart this week...


  1. The photo of Grace is my absolute favourite "portrait a week" pic that I have seen all year. xo

    1. You are the sweetest!! Your comment has literally brought a tear to my little novice photographer's eye :)

  2. Oh poor little Sophie and her sweet little words to you reminding you not to touch her sore knee. Writing these words down is so important to remember later on, I adore little ones and how they talk it really is so sweet. And Grace so sweet and I can imagine her delight in dressing up with sparkles and your veil. The lighting is so soft and the colours too:) Hope your weekend has been lovely so far. xxx

  3. Henry grazed his knee today too....HUGE deal!

  4. Love the wedding re-enactment:)

  5. Aww poor little poppet with her grazed knee :((
    Ryder has a tiny blister on the back of his heel and he didn't even know it was there....stupid me, pointed it out and asked if it was sore.....since then, he keeps pointing to it and saying it's sore and making a big deal out of it haaaaa :)

    Grace is such a princess - a girl after my own heart.

    Have a great week Amanda,
    Claire x
