"A photo of my daughters once a week, every week in 2016"

Lottie: Your 4th Birthday, Pirates and Princesses, a soiree you have been planning since the eve of your third was a smashing success. You changed between pirate and princess ensembles, walked the plank with fearless abandon and entertained your tiny (and grown) guests like the big girl you are becoming so quickly. Just as quickly as things changed upon your 1st birthday - with things becoming easier almost overnight, 4 has done the same way into the next level, leaving the madness of 3 behind in it's ever exhausting dust. You dress yourself, remind me when its time to brush your teeth, entertain yourself endlessly for hours with made up worlds you create in intricate fashion. My mama heart aches thinking how quickly you are growing but at the same time I am so excited about the person you are becoming and how much fun it all is. 
4 years a Lottie, 4 Years a mama bear.

Róisín: Baby Pirate. You, little one, fit in perfectly to your little family. You were amazing at your big sisters birthday being passed from loved one to loved one smiling the whole way. You swam, ate fresh fruit, and snuggled up for little naps on the chests of surrogate aunties and grandparents. You are the thing baby dreams are made of.
