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

Sophie: Trying her hardest to blow out the candles on her birthday cake (this caterpillar creation was a near disaster when I forgot to put the eggs into the first batch of cupcakes I made).  She was a bit overwhelmed by all the faces at her birthday dinner, but very excited when it was 'cake time'... I still can't believe my baby is two!

Grace: My sweet girl was such a help over the weekend when Paul was away down south. When I got out of the shower on Sunday morning, she ran excitedly down to my room, telling me proudly that she had made her bed to help me out.

Joining in with Jodi

Christina's two cuties were among my favourite photos this week as well as Amber's sweet poppets...


  1. Aw sweeties.
    Isn't it nice when little ones can tell when they need to be extra good and helpful xx

  2. happy birthday sophie! two already...your girls are certainly growing up into beautiful young ladies. the cupcakes look so cute! and what a good idea for a cake...and you wouldn't have to give them big slices around dinner time - nice!

  3. So very precious, Amanda. No wonder they light up your life. J x

  4. Cute cake, I might try that for my daughters second birthday

  5. They are both so beautiful Amanda - as are the words you use for them

  6. So cute Amanda! That caterpillar cake looks amazing! One of my favourite things about my birthdays growing up were the creative cakes my mum and grandma used to make for me.

  7. Sophie two already!! I do remember you announcing you were pregnant, it has flown by fast. What a sweet photo captured of her blowing out her candles, Happy birthday to your little one. Such a helpful and kind little soul Grace is. xx
