raising a girl

"As I put this little one into her dance uniform she shouted 'Look Mummy, I so pretty now.' 
It made me want to cry
... yes baby, you're pretty, but it's not the dress that's doing that. 
It will never be the dress. 
It's you. You and only you my wonderful little lady. Perfect in every way, inside and out. 
(Sometimes bringing up a girl seems like such a big responsibility...!)"

him and her {week forty-six}

he has learned how to gallop and now just wants to gallop everywhere,
thinks that Team Unizoomi should play a part in every day,
and loves his Uncle Matt "the mostest".

she loves eating cheddar cheese,
likes to help choose her own shoes to wear,
and often sneaks off to read a little book to her toys in her bedroom.

new friends

There is something so beautiful and precious about the ease with which children make friends. They don't even need to exchange names and they'll happily play together, laugh together, and comment afterwards on what lovely friends they made. Somewhere along the line making friends changes, and it isn't always so easy to make new ones.
