'A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2015.'
This week you have been reunited with some of your friends who you hadn't seen for a few weeks while we were away on holiday. It was so lovely to see the way you embraced one another in a gentle, affectionate and familiar way. What a precious thing it is to have good friends to share life with.
Ever since you experienced what it feels like for a plane to land on a runway, you have become fascinated with the sensation of going over bumps in any kind of vehicle - planes, buses, cars and bikes. I think 'bump' has been one of the words you have used most frequently this week. You have also discovered that you can create a bumping sensation by going down the stairs on your bottom, which is now your preferred method of descending our staircase.
This week has ended on a bittersweet note - we attended the funeral of your Great Grandmother, Iris, who you have enjoyed many Facetime conversations with. It is sad that you didn't get to spend more time with her, but thankfully you still have two sets of wonderful Grandparents who love you very much. We spent the rest of the weekend staying at Nanny and Grandad's house, which involved lots of butterfly and caterpillar spotting in the garden, eating delicious hearty picnic pie, feeding chickens and playing catch with Uncle John and Granny in the garden. Here's to celebrating time spent making memories with family.
All my love,
P.S Grandad captured this photo of you.
