“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2012.”
Che: “Argh me hearties” – bellowed from the bow of the ship.
Poet: A grazed nose and sore gums…but oh, that bonnet.
Che Che is five, hip hip hooray! There’s so much to celebrate, five years to reflect on and the quiet acknowledgment of myΒ birth day.

    so adorable. I really adore this photo series. Hopefully when my babe is a bit older I can do the same πŸ™‚

    Che is such a character. He truly has a lot of personality. And Poet is a doll in that bonnet. Did you find a new one of the one you lost?

    • Jodi

      I never did find a replacement to the one I lost πŸ™ … but, I did find another cute pollyanna-style alternative…x

    Happy Birthday Che……Little boy's just love dressing up as Pirates! If only we lived closer our boy's could be pirates together.
    And how divine does little Poet look in her bonnet. x

    The little bonnet is just so sweet. Those poor gums, my little man is chewing on his chubby fingers constantly at the moment too.

    Nothing is quite as cute as a poppet in a bonnet. And it looks like Che is having a marvellous time. What a special day you've created for him. Steph πŸ™‚ x

    What a wonderful birthday surprise (I am guessing) …..a ship! and that bonnet, just gorgeous. I made Abbie one early this year for apple picking. So 'little house on the prairie' πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous photo series! Did you make your daughter's bonnet? It's very sweet.

    • Jodi

      no, unfortunately my sewing skills don't cover bonnets (not at all, actually!) – it's a s/s 2011 hat from Olive's Friend Pop x

  • Jesi Langdale-Anderson

    Such beautiful photographs! The bumps and bruises age, such exciting times! Which camera/lens do you use? The bokeh on Poet's photo is gorgeous!
