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

Noah: it doesn't matter that it's the height of summer. He still loves getting into his onesie - or snuggle-monk as he calls it. Just as an aside - have you ever cuddled one of your kids in a fleecy onesie - it is the best experience ever - I swear it is like cuddling a real-life soft toy - something I was super into doing as a youngster. Noah is just like I was as a child. He sleeps with a great big collection of favourite soft toys beside his pillow. On cold nights he likes to stuff them under the blankets so they don't get cold. He is such a caring soul. But his all-time favourite is still his first monkey George, the first toy he ever got attached to at about 5 months old. And they've been everywhere together since including to the other side of the world and back again. Twice. I'm pretty sure they are BFF (best friends forever).

Mylo: There was a time there where I couldn't get a look in edgewise to be the one to tuck him into bed and read a story. It was Daddy all the way. But I tried not to let it bother me. So you can imagine my delight that right now we are in a Mummy phase and I get picked to be the story-reader every.single.night. Yusssssss! Mylo's current favourite story is Pooh's Mailbox - it's fun because there are little treasures awaiting in envelopes on each page. He loves the funny voices I put on - slow and dreary for Eeyore, bouncy and giggly for Tigger, high-pitched and squeaky for Piglet. When we turn off the light, I sneak in a few minutes of extra cuddles in his very small single (and not that comfortable!) bed. These are truly the favourite moments of my day.
