“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014."

Pipi: I find this photo absolutely hilarious. I think Pipi thinks if she can’t see the food it’s not there, or… perhaps she thinks if she shuts her eyes, then I can’t see her. Either way, it’s clear – pumpkin: she’s not a fan. (Actually she’s not really fond of many purees except mashed banana. Blueberries, pasta and corn on the cob, now that’s a different story!)

Isabelle: Bolognaise:  Isabelle is a fan. Such a typical Isabelle grin.

Noah: My solemn little man. Noah had an eye operation earlier this week (more detailed post to come), and this is his serious face. Before his op he pulled a very similar face when I asked him for a hug and he whispered; “I’ll hug you when I’m better, Mum.” I wasn’t sure how to explain to him that he wasn’t unwell as such, but that the operation would help straighten his eyes. In his mind: operation/ hospital = sick.

Can't stop looking at that top photo! Especially knowing that she isn't enjoying the solids. It is brilliant, Marcus and I both had a giggle over it. Actually all your photos are beautiful Jenny. Definitely noticing the difference the new camera is making. The images are so crisp and clear. Keep em coming. x
