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

Lottie Cakes: Your first taste of snow during a fun filled week in Denver to kick off our USA Christmas trip this year. There were snowmen made, snow angels created and for once you finally and truly understood the need to wear a coat. We had such a fun experience with your American cousins and hope its not too long before we're reunited again! 

Rosie Lou: You're even smiling when you yawn girl! Your first overseas trip went over a charm, you're a natural jetsetter and the perfect partner to cuddle up to your big sister on these too long flights. We'll enjoy these next couple trips while you are still too small to wreck havoc and are just the right size to cuddle up for trip halfway around the globe.

"A Portrait of my daughters, once a week, every week in 2015"

Lottie and Róisín: Our final week in Australia before we head North for the holidays. We have been preparing and getting everything in order - which means many days spent in our pyjamas and just being home and together. This photo meant to measure Rosie entering her third month (however did that happen so quickly?!) was photobombed by a big sister who just couldn't resist a cuddle.

Grand Final Day

Rosie Lou: Róisín the dream. Girl, if I could design a baby, that babe would be you. You are 2 months old, sleeping huge stretches during the night, when you do get up for a feed you wake me with the sweetest of coos and then smile and giggle at me before drinking a bit and falling back to your little dreamland. Your squishy cheeks and baby bits are still as soft as the moment you came out and you look like a mini elfin creature that should be frolicking the forests laughing all the way. I hope I don't jinx myself (and as a somewhat experienced mother, that is most certainly what I am doing) but someone surely cut me some slack with you after 3 1/2 years of raising (chasing!) a redheaded wild child!

Lottie Cakes: You were the big winner of the day and here you are loading your riches, all twelve dollars and fifty cents of them, into your little blue piggy bank with the sass you apply to most things in life. This week you learned a few flamenco moves so your dress you insist on wearing daily is no longer just purely decorative. Your wild, have a ridiculous fashion sense and an untamed flair for the dramatic, you may look nothing like your dear old ma but we share many many of the same traits :)

Lottie and Róisín: Happy Halloween!! 
After 30 costume changes and a dramatic exit (heres looking at you Red!) we headed off for some ghoulish fun in St Kilda and finished the eve snuggled up on the couch with sweet treats and Tim Burton. 5 Halloweens ago I met your crazy Father, spent the weekend painted blue and hitchhiking all over the Southwest of Ireland together. Who knew half a decade later we would have created two beautiful little creatures and the wild weekend would belong to them?!
I just love a good surprise :)
