"A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014."


F: My baby is four.
This week has marked a special moment in the year, a celebration of my boy. My baby who years ago made his appearance in the world, blinking at the brightness of it all, is now four. Being October born I have one more year before he starts school and my precious hours with him are snatched away as he starts a new adventure in life. 

Oh how we ate cake (lots), danced, watched on as he excitedly opened his presents and played with his friends. 
As I do every year, I waited for the seconds to pass on the clock and reach 01.32 am, before sneaking into his room to snap a pic of his sleeping baby face, documenting the minute he entered the world those four years ago.

I have picked two photos this week, the first shows his cheeky side, his humour and the part of him that makes me laugh. The second photo is my favourite though, these are the moments I stop what I'm doing to watch him, his thoughtful gaze staring out, his kind nature and wisdom beyond his years captured in that moment. 

Happy birthday my baby, how you have my heart. x
