'A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2015.'
I took this photo of you at the farm - you were at the top of a high slide, ready to come whizzing down. I love this photo for the way it captures the light, your hair colour and your confidence.
I have always wanted to give you space to explore, not wanting to stick to your side when you are playing as I know this can be a hindrance, but lately, your adventurous spirit has caused me to have a few heart-in-mouth, stomach-sinking moments, where you have run off, and I have momentarily lost you. During our trip to the farm, you managed to escape from the playground and out onto the pavement twice, and I found you running down the road, away from the farm. Mothers need eyes like hawks, and legs like cheetahs to ensure the safety of their children.
All my love,
