 A portrait of my children every week for a year.

Esther: Being fed here by Grandad, after she'd got down. She's been asking to see Grandad's hand on the camera ever since. Loves loves loves her Grandparents and says their names ("Nana, Dada, Darden") throughout the day. Along with Dane for James, and Do-Dee-Ah for Thalia. She sings Thalia's name.

Reuben: Has used the phrase "in which case" a couple of times this week which is totally fantastic. Also fantastic: He offered to empty the catcher when I was mowing the lawns the other day. He said he'd do it while I had a little rest. Try as he might, his little (I mean big) muscles just weren't quite up to it, and he eventually asked me to wheel the mower closer to grass clippings pile.
