Last year I took on the challenge of taking a photo of my three girls together every week. I am happy to report that I succeeded with this challenge and have 52 shots of my beauties ready to print out in a photo book. Here is a look at the last shot and the first shot for 2014 – it is great to see how they have grown and changed over the year. This end of year photo has now become a bit of a tradition so here is a look a the past four years all taken in the same spot on our back patio.
Last time I shared an update on my 52 week project I was poolside in Bali and this time is no different. We have been fortunate enough to have two trips to the beautiful land of sunshine this year and we are feeling lucky indeed. We have brought the girls for a two week break and of course just loving it.
So here is the latest photos from my 52 Week Challenge – a photo a week of the girls together.
Today sees another year pass since we farewelled our tiny first born daughter Laura.
She was born on the 11th March at 11pm and today marks her 11th birthday – in some customs that is considered your golden birthday – when your age coincides with your date of birth. I guess for us Laura will always be our golden child – she was never naughty or never threw a tantrum – she will forever be the perfect child who left an incredible imprint on our life in her very short time with us.
As we do every year we visited Laura’s special place in the baby lawn at the cemetery last weekend. This time both Sienna and I decided to video record our visit instead of lots of photos and I have turned all our little snippets it into a short little movie. We released 4 balloons to her in the sky and her present was a sweet little trinket box which the girls had fun filing with petals and coloured rocks.
More special memories of our four girls ….
