seasidy days

music credit: Dog Days Are Over by Florence and the Machine

I've always loved being at the coast,
there is something about the air,
the fact the sky always seems so big,
the sound of water,
and the feel of sand;
it's just good for the soul.
Especially on spring days,
when a very blustery day by the water,
can quite literally blow the cobwebs away
and leave you with muddy clothes,
windswept hair
and a really big smile.

If you would like to see more of our videos

him and her {week fifteen}

he is having lovely lay ins thanks to his new clock,
is utterly obsessed with his new clock and telling everyone what time it is,
and has the cutest little singing voice,
especially when he's singing Frozen duets with Mummy.

she loves muddy puddles,
will try and climb absolutely anything,
has the cheekiest face ever when she's being naughty,
and looks simply adorable snuggling with her soft toys at bedtime.

siblings {april}

The thing that I love most about watching my two together,
is how they bring out each other's adventurous streak.
They just love a good explore side-by-side.

It amazes me how much they seem to communicate with one another
without using words,
as they investigate the world around them.
Side way glances, the occasional brush of arms,
cheeky smiles and laughs of encouragement
seem to be all they need when they are together.

She will look at him for approval
with eyes full of nothing but hero worship,
and he will look out for her,
always making sure she's close by
and not doing anything she shouldn't be.

It's thrilling to think of the adventures they'll share as they grow up,
and how their childhood memories
will be so tightly tied to one another.

Increasingly, as they play together more and more,
I see the beginnings of a gang of two
which has nothing whatsoever to do with me.
There will be adventures in their futures that not only will I not be a part of,
but that I won't even know about.
Secret moments that just the two of them will share.

And funnily enough, that excites me.
I love that they will have that,
and that they'll get to learn about the world hand in hand.
