twelve months ago today this little mister arrived. 
on a stormy saturday may morning.
making our family a foursome. 
turning cc into a wonderful big brother.

so, a toast to clement turning one.
to those 'good' and 'yes' and 'daddy' words he now says so well.
to those tiny, deep, dimples.
those sturdy legs that never stay still.
and to that special brotherly bond that is already so strong.
thank you for it all, dear clement frank.

the month of may.


moments from the month of may.

1. 'this trolleys a funny one. these black wheels they turn sideways like a crab see? they's supposed to go straight ahead like caterpillars go straight. not sideways.'
2. mornings spent hiding together in clement's bed.
3. this issue of milk decoration is so lovely. it might be my favourite. 
4. standing together - then falling.  
5. trying to find a moment of making/creating time once the boys are sleeping.
6. story time with daddy in the public gardens.
7. flying in his overalls. then chasing shadows.
