A portrait of each of my children, once a week, every week in 2014.

Dylan :: Practising moves to get some airtime on the scooter is starting to pay off.
Harry :: The smiliest baby in K-town.
Mahalia :: You have your own sense of style, and a distinct lack of fear. I hope no one ever clips your wings.
Zach :: Seven months old, and already hamming it up for the camera.

I should change the tag line, I’ve missed a couple of weeks because, well, life. I’m tired of thanking the same old photos, but whenever we go anywhere, I either forget to take my camera, or I don’t use it. I find Saturday roll around, and I’m rushing around to take a couple of photos. I started this project to try and regain some of (amateur-hobbiest) photography. It seems I need to search some more.

Dylan :: Trying to warm up post swim.
Harry :: You seem to have grown up so much in the past week.
Mahalia :: No swimmers? No worries. A dress is as good as a pair of bathers.
Zach :: Sometimes I look at you, and I swear you’ve been here before. That I’ve met you before.

A portrait of each of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Dylan :: Your reading has really taken off this year, but you still much prefer your Papa to read to you.
Harry and Zach :: You started solids this weekend. We’re fans of ‘baby-led weaning’ in our house. You weren’t too sure what to do with the bits of food in front of you, but you both eventually got some into your mouth for a taste.
Mahalia :: It seems you’ve inherited your Papa’s skin, burning even with sunscreen on.

|Dylan :: This teddy, who is the same age as you, gets kept with you until you are properly awake. Just like your Mama, you are not a morning person. I’m glad your not too old to need the security and comfort of your bear.|

|Harry :: You’re my little water baby. I swear you’d be happy living in the bath, being help afloat by your Papa’s big strong arms.|
|Zachy :: You my little buddy, you are perfection right there. How I can wait to watch you grow and see who you turn out to be, but at the same time, I want these moments to last eternity.|
|Mahalia :: Your bed hair masks the look of determination on your face. While your determination can cause me frustration at times, I love that you have the drive to go for what you want, not giving nor giving up. I hope you don’t eve lose your assertiveness.|

A portrait of my children, once a week, each week, in 2014.

|Harry :: This photo is Papa’s doing. I suspect he caught you trying to move far away from where he had put you. Don’t grow up to fast sweetheart|
|Zach :: So many times you have put your favourite ring here on your face, and have then become upset when you cannot find it to gum on|
|Zach :: You have managed to get your toes into your mouth this week, the first out of children to do so. Harry :: you’re still happy with your finger sucking|
|Mahalia and Dylan :: Waiting patiently and excitedly for the train|
|Dylan :: Trying to absorb every minute of our train ride. I think you’d happily spend all day riding trains if we let you|
|Mahalia :: Watching the outside world speed by|

I forgot to check my camera settings this week, and so didn’t realise until tonight that the iso was still set to 800 from one night taking photos of sleeping babes. The result? The graininess of this week’s photos. We’re still a little unsettled with our back to school routine, but gradually we are settling into a rhythm, and a sense of calm is returning to our little home.

I hope the coming week is good to you.

|Dylan and Mahalia :: First day back at school went off without a hitch. Year two for Dylan, and pre-primary (first year of full-time schooling) for Mahalia. I can’t believe how quickly the holidays went|
|Zach and Harry :: One of the few photos of the two of you sleeping, but not touching. Both of you lost most of the hair you were born with. You have hair growing back, but still have some of your newborn hair – a few wisps on the top of your head that are longer than the rest, and these patches at the base of your heads. In this photo, Harry’s head particularly, makes me think of The Last of the Mohicans|

The back to school routine this past week has handed me my derrière on a silver platter. Thankfully hubby is here to help out, but I need to figure out a better system to make sure we’re out the door on time in the morning. I think I’m going to have to start my day after putting Harry and Zach back to bed after their 4.30am feed, instead of going back to bed. I am so not a morning person. Not at all.
