"A portrait of Queenie Valentine, once a week, every week in 2013."

So love seeing this smiling face sat behind us in our new car. (How snuggly is that coat? We've been so blessed with beautiful hand-me-downs.)

This week we've spent most days taking long walks on the beach. The sun has been shining and we've been more than grateful. I've finally mastered a comfortable back carry in my wrap and Queenie is very happy up there. She bounces up and down with excitement and points at birds and the sea. When she's tired she falls asleep and I can feel her breathing deeply. Over this weekend she's pulling herself up on furniture and had finally learnt to sit herself up. Queenie spends hours playing with these wooden letters her Grammy and Gramps bought her. She loves listening to us talk about words and letters, moving them around to spell things out. She has enjoyed my sisters being off school this week, who have spent hours playing with her, especially my youngest sister Scarlett and sits on her shoulders, loving the attention. We're working through the sleeping little by little and I'm actually feeling so sleepy today because I think my body is so freaked at how much sleep I got last night.


  1. so so so weet. love that super smile. have a lovely week and enjoy catching up on sleep when you can! xo
