Water babyHouseworkTeething“A portrait of our children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”

Juju: At the pool – “Whoops I did a burp Mum. It’s not spicy… Look I’m a mermaid. Look Mum, I’m making footprints out of water.”
Mowgli: Teething pains.
Coco: Vacuum cleaner obsessed.

Did I mention the twins are STILL teething?

It’s been two months of hell. They don’t sleep, they don’t eat and they won’t wean. (Or stop biting). Hence the lack of written blog posts.

Sometimes I fantasise about hitching up our Airstream and skipping town. Just for one night of unbroken sleep…

    i know what you mean! my little one is teething too and there’s a lot of crying and red bottoms around here! just discover your blog through Jodi’s project and i like it! your kids are beautiful!

  5. Oh, oh, oh!!! 😀 I’ve just been through a whole bunch of your gorgeous photos of the kids and the corresponding captions. And I know it must be hectic at times and downright exhausting for you but….can I smile and laugh out loud for a bit?!!!! I LOVE that you have captured family life so well which makes us all want to laugh and cry at the same time and I absolutely LOVE it! Only a mother close enough to her child knows the different kinds of burps she makes. Only a mother takes the time to photograph her child’s toilet obsession. Only a mother can make her children’s world as wonderful as you make yours. Thank you for showing us so much beauty in a family. With love, Sharon

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a magical message. I am completely exhausted by my kids but I try to find the beauty in the little things. Sometimes that is tough to do, sometimes when they’re pulling apart the house or running amok in their thirst to discover the world, I feel like pulling my hair out or inadequate as a mother. Thank you for reminding me how special these simple moments are to all mothers and making me feel special as a mother! Your comment made my heart soar. Love Sonia

    I have one teething biter, I have no idea how you are dealing with two! Though two, ahhhh my heart melts. I have a weird fondness for twins. Something about twins I find so fascinating.
