My youngest is 4!

Four years ago today I was waiting eagerly at hospital to meet this gorgeous boy.


I took the photo on the left just before leaving hospital to take him home. And the photo on the right is a couple of months ago on holiday. I always love looking at photos like this next to each other so I can see just how much they’ve changed and grown.

Little did I know how much this little man would rock our world. He has brought just the right amount of craziness, a huge amount of cuteness and a whole lot of comedy to our little family.

He’s also a little bit mischievous! I couldn’t believe it on Monday morning when I turned around in the kitchen to see him sitting there holding scissors with his fringe lying on the table….aarggh! I thought having 2 boys that I would get away without them playing hairdressers on themselves!

I had my iPhone handy so I grabbed these photos of him. I took the one on the left as soon as I caught him doing it, that’s his face waiting to see if I’m going to tell him off! Then the photo on the right is when he realised I could see the funny side of it!

I’m definitely keeping hold of these to embarrass him at his 18th birthday!

Luckily with a bit of wax and styling his DIY haircut doesn’t look nearly so bad now!

Go on little dude, show us how old you are….


S has a fantastic sense of style, hence the sunglasses he chose for these photos. He never puts the clothes I lay out for him in the morning, he’s always rummaging around in his wardrobe. And he always seems to style better outfits than I do! He regularly goes to nursery in a vintage blazer or a skinny tie!

You can see the shoots I did and the posts I wrote for his 1st birthday, 2nd birthday and 3rd birthday.

Happy 4th birthday to our gorgeous little dude, we love you more than you could know. Here are a couple of shots of him before haircut-gate!
