'A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2014.
We have been spending as much time as possible outdoors recently, come rain or shine. You are so content when you are exploring and climbing, and this week has been characterised by a lot of mud and water play. There was only one slightly unfortunate moment when I was hanging out the washing, and you were playing at the other end of the garden, out of my sight. All of a sudden, you started crying, and I found you diving into a trug full of rain water. You had been leaning over the side and put more weight on the trug than it was able to cope with, resulting in your feet coming off the ground. Somehow, you found the strength to hold yourself in such a way that you didn't fall in completely, but you did get very wet! Keep up with your adventurous explorations, little one. Sometimes accidents will happen, but you will learn a lot from them that will help you in the future.
With great love,
