Last Monday we were making chilli in my mums kitchen (one of our favourite winter warming ‘English Mexican’ dishes)
J was helping me, chopping away (mostly eating the yellow peppers) and grating cheese (again mostly eating it) and in between mouthfuls was singing along to the trolls soundtrack – her favourite thing right now. In fact there has even been a conversation about whether she could have pink hair like Poppy. We compromised and agreed that when she is 18 she can have pink hair… one day she will figure me out I’m sure!
At this moment in time she seemed so happy and cheerful and looked so cute that I just had to take a photo and add it to my little collection of J portraits. It also strikes me just how grown up she looks in this photo. She’s very tall for her age (112cm vs my mere 158cm) and almost weekly I get asked what school year she is – it’s easy to forget she has just turned 4, I love this little girl.
