Journalling reads: Every time we visit Chessington World Of Adventures you are on the lookout to see if there is anything new to try. When you spotted this new attraction you begged to be allowed a turn. Since it was raining and it was something we had to pay for, we initiallly said no. You kept asking and eventually we gave in. It was a giant pool filled with water, the guys running it helped you to climb inside these inflatable balls and added more air once you were inside. Then you had to run around inside to get the ball to move around the pool. A bit like a hamster ball on water for kids, you had a great time but you were exhausted afterwards 30th March 2011

Journalling reads: Why is it that with all of the toys you have in the house, you still prefer to sit on the floor and play with Nana’s beads? Why do those same beads seem to taste so yummy to you? I guess it is just yet another one of those bizarre little quirks that make you such a unique, fun little person. I don’t think I could ever bring myself to change a single thing about you, I love you just the way you are my strange crazy Logan.

Journalling reads: You three had a great time playing on the climbing frame and slide. Lukas liked hanging like a monkey from the bars best. Logan seemed to be a little bit scared to let go of Daddy’s hands and go down the slide, but he was more willing once he saw Lukas at the bottom to catch him. I love watching the three of you playing together, it’s too cute for words!

Journalling reads: You have no idea how much I wish I could look at these photographs and just sit and write about how sweet it is that you and Joshua were playing together in the garden with the quad bike. But I can’t because every single time I look at these photos they make me feel sad. With Joshua being born so soon after Leo died I couldn’t really help myself from using him to try and fill the huge void in my heart. He stayed with us a lot and I kind of ended up treating him like he was one of my own. It made things easier for you, having someone around to play with to take your mind off everything. The two of you formed a really great relationship with each other but I can’t seem to help my thoughts from wondering to wishing. I wish that Leo had been able to join you, for the three of you to bond and play as cousins, but more than anything else i wish that you had been given the chance to make at least some of these memories as brothers.

Journalling reads: When you came with Mummy to drop off Lukas’s birthday card, you couldn’t wait to run out into the back garden. It was starting to get near your bedtime so we had to make it a quick play. You were fascinated by the trampoline, I don’t think you had seen one before. At first you wanted me to hold your hands and help you jump. But once Lukas got on you were soon bouncing and running around on it. You will have to come and play again soon. 3rd August 2007.

Journalling reads: I know that I have never been mother of the year material. Being sick has always made things difficult for me to be the kind of mummy that I think you deserve. But you have never seemed to mind, always been happy enough with the way things are. I think that may have something to do with the fact that although Mummy is not always able to do the things she wants to do with you, she is well put bluntly a little bit crazy. Your mummy does things that most people would never dream of. Take this photo for example, Nannie Freda’s back garden was flooded thanks to the heavy rain, and it was pouring down outside. But Mummy had the smart idea to let you go outside and play in it. I took the attitude that you had wellington boots, and a really great waterproof set. A little bit of rain wasn’t going to hurt you we could always dry you off. I may sound more slightly more unconventional than crazy, did I forget to say that I decided to come out with you? I put on a pair of shoes and joined you in the garden. We jumped in the massive puddle that the concrete had become, we splashed and we made lots of noise. I made Daddy take some photos and when we were done I was soaked up to the waistband of my trousers, but it was worth it because we had so much fun!

Journalling reads: I love this photo of you playing in the snow, you were jumping on top of the snow covered trampoline, and I managed to catch you mid jump. I only had to climb up on the edge of the trampoline, fall off and land hard on my butt to get it!
