these three {week five}


Dylan is so excited about his upcoming birthday that I think he might just combust. He's been counting down the days for the past month, and he can't wait to have his chocolate birthday cake and Nanny's rice krispie crunch; as per his birthday traditions. I simply cannot believe that at this point six years ago he was still lurking in my belly, about to rock my world in the most amazing way imaginable. 


I look at Everly lately, and I wonder when it was that she suddenly grew up. She just looks so big all of a sudden. I feel like in the months before he started school, her big brother still looked like a toddler, whereas this little lady would pass for a school girl more comfortably than she does a preschooler. Having said that, she told an epic fib to get herself sent home from preschool last week, and completely played everyone... so she's either got a lot to learn about growing up, or she's already a bit of a genius!


It goes without saying that younger siblings look up to the older ones, but Quinny just totally worships her big bro and sis at the moment. She'll chase them from room to room, desperate to be with them, to join in their games - even when those games are too fast or too complicated or just too crazy for her to fully join in with. She's also turned into a bit of a bookworm overnight, and emptying books onto her sisters bed so she can sit and 'read' them to herself, is one of her favourite things to do.

  1. Both Dylan and Everly look so grown up in these photos. Everly's smile is gorgeous. Holly used to the same with Alice's books when she was at preschool. So cute and it meant I could clean the room while she was happy x

  2. 6 seems to be the age when all of a sudden they become more grown up - I know N all of a sudden seemed to change over his birthday last month. Everly does look so grown up - the story she concocted was brilliant. Cheeky though! #livingarrows

  4. How gorgeous are your photos as always Lucy. I agree my middle one starts school in September and he looks so much more ready for it and grown up that my eldest did at that age - I don't think i'm ready though xx #livingarrows

  6. i know what you mean about kids suddenly growing up. Since becoming a big brother my 2.5 year old has matured so much, losing his baby like features and suddenly his speech is coming on leaps and bounds.
    Beautiful photos, and i love the bright cardi :)

  7. It's so lovely that Quinny has a love of books and she is looking so big at the moment! There's not much 'baby' about her anymore. Her sister is definitely growing up far too quickly. I remember her as the baby, so little when you announced your third pregnancy and I think, since Quinny was born she has got more and more grown up. I hope Dylan'd birthday comes round quickly for him! x

  8. Gorgeous photos. My daughter turns 3 in a few weeks and will be starting a preschool class, and she already seems so much older than my son did when he started the nursery class at 3 and a half. x #LivingArrows
