A first

This is Maddy's first ever wee in the sea. It's a fairly full beach, so this is us being surreptitious.

Obviously the removal of pants, followed by the five minutes it took to persuade her to crouch fully into the water, whilst Matt takes photos, possibly hindered this aim.

Team GB

Only Maddy emerges from this photo with any shred of dignity still intact. The rest of us need to avoid camera and bicycle helmets in the future.

Regardless, I needed to post it as it was our first bicycle trip en famille. We took approximately 2 hours to get ready, and then I curtailed the trip at the end of the road, based on my entirely rational fears of exposing an 8 month old to erratic London traffic. 

All in all, a complete fail.

A Kaleidoscope of colour

There's so much going on in this picture that, like Maddy, I'm also wearing sunglasses.

It's Maddy's third Birthday and she's wearing every single present she ripped open a mere nano-seconds before.

We've put Theo in some jolly red tights and have forced a paper hat on his head, the elastic no doubt cutting into his delicate baby neck, meaning he's probably only minutes away from being garrotted.
