Buba, my little adventurer I struggle to keep up with you these days. Your energy levels are far behind my comprehension too. We could run the fields all day and you would never be tired. Your giddiness has no end long after Mommy and Daddy are exhausted from entertaining it. Even when I try to take photos of us you are never still, always ready to take flight. The weather has been cold and windy beyond belief therefore your energy has been bursting at the seems to get outside and run it off. Yesterday, we decided to take a little Sunday stroll on the hilltop behind our house so you could do what you do best, run, scream, shout, explore and let it all out! Your giggles echoed over the hills along with the wind. This photo is the perfect capture of exactly how you are right now, running about, giggling with glee and wanted to be free. You are the little one that always wants to be creative and use your imagination to play make believe. I love when you make games up and you want everyone to join in. You have always been great at including everyone in around you, and never letting anyone feel left out. Your heart is pure gold when it comes to playing games. I love that about you.
Missy Moo, you have changed a lot in the last two weeks. I keep saying it to you how much you are changing on me. I don’t ever remember your brother changing literally right before my very eyes. Your hair grows longer, daily. Your voice gets a little more mature and deeper. You are so sturdy on your feet these days you walk around and are starting to explore so much more now. Our carrying days are over, and the stroller days less and less. Your little personality is coming out and you are starting to have a complete mind of your own on what you like and dislike. All I can say is please grow up a little slower, I feel like it is going too fast the second time around. Please let me soak a little more of your innocence and smallness in a little longer. I get emotional when I watch you now and realize what a big girl you have all the sudden become. It won’t be long before you follow your brother to school and it will be just Mommy left behind with the empty nest syndrome. I can already feel it brewing in the pit of my stomach. I love that even though you are becoming little miss independent you are still the best snuggler ever. You still want to climb in my lap and kiss and hug me. You still play with my hair while I carry you to the car. Those little affections I hope never go away. I also hope the way you look at me and your Daddy like we are your super heroes only grows stronger as you get older. My baby you will always be!

This is a lovely post, lovely words and photos! They look so alike 🙂 xx
Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment Catriona. Hope to see you again soon.
Beautiful pictures as always. 😀
It’s almost, but only almost, saddening how quick they grow!! haha
I am hoping to get a real camera when I get paid, so hopefully I’ll be able to capture more moments as I am at the moment only using phone, and that’s not really good for just capture with movement! haha
I know wht you mean although i used my iphone for most of my photos lately as its just easy to have in ur pocket for those quick special moments. But i do like taking my camera out and playing outdoors with them like here. Thank you. Good luck with your new camera.
Would like to be says
Aaahhh such gorgeous children and beautiful words x
Thank you so very much. They are so fun at this stage together.
That look of love from your little ones will never grow old will it, it’s such a magical thing. And I love these images Jenny, stunning colours x
Thank you so much. No way it can definitely never get old. Lol
Oh they both look so adorable all wrapped up warm. What gorgeous babies you have! I cannot believe how big they are, their age gap is getting less and less noticeable as the weeks go by x
I know I think so too Donna. Cant believe it. Soon it will just be like having twins of not already. Hahaha They are huge too. Buba is more than half my height already at 3. Cant inagine at 5 what he will be. Lol thanks hun.
It’s lovely how you share not only the photos but words about them too Jenny! x
Thanks Annie. I did it all last year and am making a book for them to keep out of them all. Cant wait.
Awww such lovely recollection of your the week that was =) #livingarrows
Thanks Merlinda. Its great to capture them each week and write a little note to them each week so they can read back when they are older.
Jenny, what a moving post! MM is the proper little lady now. So adorable. I’m sure they will look at you like you are super heros. x
I hope you are right. Or they may look at me and go wheres the lens as I always seem to have a camera in their face while they play. Hahaha Blogger children. Love it. Lol thanks hun
It does feel like they change right before your eyes sometimes doesn’t it. Lovely captures #livingarrows x
Thank you so much Amy! Yes it does. Wish they would slow down just for a little bit. Life seems to be going too fast.
Oooo what a lovely, lovely post. You and your little ones are going to treasure posts like these so much in the future. Gorgeous pics and gorgeous words. Life just passes by far too quickly x
I would love to make them all in a book for them someday. Thank you.
What beautiful photographs! Your little girl is starting to look like a little girl rather than a toddler these days, too.
I know I couldnt believe it when I saw this photo.
Ahh lovely post, Missy Moo seems to shoot up every couple of weeks and Bubba looks as adorable as always. I know exactly what you mean about never ending energy levels! Missy Moo and Bubba really do look like a proper pair, i think they will make excellent partners in crime 🙂

I think these are probably my favourite photos of yours so far, Jenny. I love how you do the posts, you’re right, it’d make a lovely book for them. Thanks for sharing with Living Arrows xx
Thanks Hayley for commenting. I just need to kick my butt in gear and get last year’s all printed out for them too. lol 🙂 So I am caught up.
