Journalling reads: While Daddy used to go off and ride his thrill rides, and rollercoasters we used to go off and do our own thing. Sometimes that mean’t me finding a seat while you rode on kiddy rides alone, but usually once it started getting dark that mean’t at least one ride together on the carousel. The rides always lasted a long time then because it was never very busy. You loved the lights and the music and I liked the chance to warm up a little bit and have a rest. You always asked to sit in one of the spinning seats. They had leatherette bench seats and a wheel in the centre to make the whole seat spin around. You would beg me to spin it around super fast until you couldn’t take it anymore. Then you would tell me very loudly and panic everyone else on the ride “stop it, I am going to throw up” before laughing and telling me to spin it again. It was always really nice for us to get the chance to do this together. Whenever you rode the carousel with your Daddy you always insisted he pick you up and put you on one of the horses. I couldn’t manage to lift you up onto those so this was kind of our special little thing for us to do together.

Journalling reads: I never thought it would be something as simple as a pile of leaves, that would be the thing to define just how different you are from your brother. You had never really seen leaves before because last year you were just a baby in the autumn. I let you out of the pushchair just to see what you would do, and you jumped straight in them. There was no hesitation or fear at all, you just dived headfirst into them. You wanted to touch them, taste them, smell them. Loved looking at them and hearing them rustle but more than anything else you loved being able to play in the dirt.

Journalling reads: When I was pregnant with Logan, I was so thrilled to have a real little baby bump. I was intending to take bump photographs and scrap my pregnancy journey since we knew my body couldn’t take another pregnancy. But nothing went to plan. I felt so ill all the time, that we only managed this one set of pictures.

Journalling reads: Ever since you got your 2 teeth through, I have been trying to capture a photograph of them. I have tried every trick I can think of, from trying to make you giggle, to pinning you down and using my finger to open your mouth. I have tried from every angle including holding you upside down and up over my head. But you are stubborn and obstinate. Every time I try you grab the camera, or shake your head, you put your tongue over them or just tip your head back and more often than not, you bite me. News flash baby, your definitely my little boy, where do you think you got the stubborn streak from? I persevered and today I managed to get not one but two photographs that showed both of your little fangs in all their glory. It was just a tiny little victory, but i’ll take it, even if you were having a complete meltdown in the playpen at the time!
