The 52 Project: 8/52

'A portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week in 2016.'

Dear Ruby,
Our Sunday afternoon's this year have been characterised by walks in Snuff Mills - we have been so many times now that I think it's ingrained in your internal clock - this Sunday at 4pm you said, 'see water wheel, go for walk?' We hadn't intended on going this week. It was yet another grey, dreary afternoon, and I was quite happy with the prospect of staying at home for the rest of the afternoon, but we took little persuading from you to go and see if the water wheel was working at Snuff Mills.

You've ridden your balance bike a lot this week - it's amazing to see you growing and now that you are a bit taller, you're able to pick up a bit of speed on it as you negotiate the rocks, puddles and slopes of the alley behind our house. Here's to many more adventures and explorations on two wheels.

All my love,

Mummy xxx
