KateTakes5’s Listography has asked us to delve back into our scrapbooks over the past year and dig out our 5 Favourite Photos of 2011. An absolutely impossible task. I pored for hours over all the pictures I’ve published on my blog and in the end decided there was no way I could come up with a Top 5.
Instead, I have decided to devote my Top 5 Theme to Several Photos My Eldest Son’s Year of Achievement: learning to swim; learning to share his bed with his brother at his grandad’s; learning to ride a bike, learning – slowly but surely – to play the guitar (just like his scrawny dad when I was a teenager); and learning not to be scared of dogs.
I can’t believe he is seven and how far he has come since he was a little scrap of nothingness on a hospital bed after being admitted with fluid on his lungs when he was just a week old (first picture).
• I’ve thrown the chicken picture in for good measure, because it makes me smile!
