A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Isabelle: (877 days) Cuddling her ‘favourite blankie’ – which at the time of these photos was in fact wet and about to be hung on the line (hampered somewhat by her lying on top of it and the rest of the basket of washing.) She has recently formed a very strong attachment to this blanket and wants to take it everywhere.

Noah: (1583 weeks) Giving me and the baby a check up. After confirming that we both had strong heartbeats, he pulled out his toy chain saw. When I asked him what it was for he said he had to “cut the baby out [of me] …that’s what doctors do… and then the baby walks out.” (He finished his explanation with a finger walking gesture.) … Well I guess he was listening when I explained that he was delivered by c-section!”

Bump: (37 weeks, 2 days) The subject of Dr Noah’s check up. (Also while it may not look it, I can assure you that I am not pantless in this picture – see the hint of blue shorts on the left, it’s just difficult to see over the belly at the moment!)

In other matters: I apologise for my less frequent blogging of late, I’ve been a little pre-occupied (and a tad tired)… I hope to explain some of the reasons for my absence some time this week).

Such sweet photos! I cut Roman's blankie in half so that I can wash one while he's got the other. Can totally relate to the tiredness at the moment xx

Adorable! I harbour a secret desire for my child to develop a strong attachment to a lovie of some sort. I had one when I was little (and, ahem, not so little) and it bought me so much confort. So far, no dice. But here's hoping??

I love the baby in the basket!! What a sweet shot. I thought she was asleep at first - nope just having a snuggle.

Ha! Now that is dedication to the blanket. Missed seeing you on the weekend, but I understand they probably won't let you on a plane - now would you want to! Ah well Auckland next year :)
