A portrait of my children every week for a year.


Esther: Regularly applies paw paw cream (lip balm in our house). She keeps her finger near her lips for many minutes after you would think she had finished. Difficult if you want to get her dressed. This week's favourite new word is "right." She says it when we're settling in to something or are ready and about to go somewhere. I feel slightly mocked. And affirmed.

Reuben: It's birthday week! This is him on his last day of being three. As expected, we had 20 minutes in the front of the car together while Esther had an untimely sleep in the back. I thought I needed to take some things to keep him entertained, but clearly not.


  1. Woo she's cute. Thinking the engineer may actually be an actor instead?
