"A Portrait of my daughter once a week, every week in 2014"

Lottie Cakes: Yellow Fever vaccinated and ready for the Amazon! When we got home you showed off your "ouchies" to your grandparents and then told them you got a lolly for your troubles. When they asked you if it was worth it you matter-of-factly answered "YES!"

The twos can be terrible when your over-tired or over-sugared but this week I am finding you oh so sweet and cuddly. In the morning you wake up with a smile and an "I wuv you mummy" followed by eskimo kisses and little milky morning breath. It's pretty hard to have too bad a day when they start out like that!

You have started reading us stories, sometimes with the book upside down and often with mostly words of gibberish but done with such enthusiasm it's hard not to applaud your effort. 

I have been slacking on this space as of late but for an important cause. In three sleeps time we embark on a round the world journey with one mama, one papa, one wild child and three backpacks. Next weeks photo will feature a sunscreen laden ginger girl in Thailand. 

Linking up with Practising Simplicity and Living Arrows.

    1. Hehe... I know, she was much braver than me (although I tried not to let her know that), this mamaheart broke watching her in pain :( I definitely took it the hardest! X
