"A Picture of my daughter once a week, ever week in 2015"

Lottie Cakes: Preparing for bedtime and reminding me of a time not so long ago when you were just a baby girl. During the day you are very much a little girl full of questions, strong willed and feisty. When bedtime swings around and you slip into a little nightgown or a pair of one piece pyjamas and play with my hair while drifting off after the third time of reading your bedtime story and suddenly my babies back. There you are with your squishy cheek nestled against me and your arms intertwined with mine, your little lids drooping and I cuddle you until you drift off onto your little dream land. I love watching you grow and the person you have become but these little glimpses of my baby that I get to witness every night are just oh so sweet. xo

" A portrait of my daughter once a week, every week in 2015"

Lottie Cakes: A special package arrived in the mail yesterday full of treats from loving grandmothers, cousins and friends. Inside, among other beautiful treasures for you and your soon-to-be-here sibling, were 3 beautiful ballet costumes in which you have been wearing - and dancing in - ever since. 
With less than 2 weeks expected to go with our sweet impending arrival the days here have been slow, we have had all day pyjama parties while Daddy is at work, watching movies and cuddling, baking banana bread, playing dress up and making up stories. During the day you seem so grown, so knowledgable so wise beyond your two feet of growth but the evenings you are still my baby. After bath time when you slip into your one piece pajamas and cuddle up in bed, waking only to roll over in the middle of the night and give me tiny kisses, wrap your little arms around my neck and whisper you love me and that I am your favorite Mommy that has ever been. 
Life is good Tiny and you too are my favorite that has ever been. xoxo

Lottie Cakes: A countryside adventure to see beloved friends in these last few weeks before one munchkin becomes two. We dressed in our woolies (and you in a tutu), drank warm cups of tea, visited the farmers market and sat around the fire laughing, catching up and playing dress up. All in all a magical Saturday! xo

Stills: Its such a lovely day ....

I'm glad I shared it with you...
