"how quickly kids grow up ebabee"

I’ve been keeping a little photo log of Anya ever since she was born.  My idea is to photograph her in the same chair, wearing white, sitting next to her favourite stuffed toy over a period of many years.  I started when she was 5 months old and took the latest picture last week.

When I look back at the original picture and compare it to the latest one, I can’t believe the huge change in 5 short years.  I’ve often been told ‘kids grow very quickly so make sure you enjoy them at every stage’.  I never really understood or appreciated this sentiment till Anya came along but now I totally get it.  Time is moving fast and life is busy for most of us so it’s really easy to forget to enjoy every little moment of bonding and love that we share with our kids every single day.  I love looking back at these photos once in a while because they are a constant reminder that every age, every stage is fleeting so it’s important to enjoy the moment you’re in because it won’t last long.

I’m so glad I’ve kept this photo record and I plan to continue till she’s 18!  Have you done anything similar with your kids? I’d love to hear.

Have a fun weekend and enjoy those amazing everyday moments with your kids. x

Feeling like a kid

January 31, 2014


A few weeks ago we were at London’s Southbank where they have a big, old-fashioned merry-go-round.   The second Anya spotted it she of course wanted a ride but wasn’t keen to go alone.  So my husband volunteered to go with her and then I said I’d go too.  All three of us ended up on the carousel which was so much fun.  It made me feel like a kid again and I so enjoyed the feeling.  That’s one of the many joys of having a child;  sometimes, you get to be a kid again and it feels great.  My only regret is that we didn’t manage to get anyone to take a photo of all three of us.  Next time.

Have a happy weekend!
