Nearly three

Emily's quotes of the day:

Wednesday: Xavier is Edward's best friend.
Elyse was very kind to let me play with the phone.

We can talk about that later (when I asked her about dance during her tv show - a rare chance to watch tv in the last month!)

Saturday: On arriving home after swimming: I can't see my Mummy and baby Edward (we weren't in the family room)

I don't need anyone to come with me at swimming - I am in the big girls class.

Sunday: We have friends whoever I. mt Barker, they have two dogs, Tiny and Sophia.
Daddy: What are their names?
Emily: Ben and Becky

Monday: Peppa pig is a pig.

Having a Mum with 3 doctors appointments a week and then all the excitement of a new baby brother and lots of visitors has been pretty exhausting for her. We are gradually returning to normal, or rather defining the new normal with two little ones. It's so lovely to hear Emily say "I'll just check on baby Edward" when he cried and that she gives him a little kiss On the head before bed and when she gets up.

Take 12 May 2012 #take12

I'm excited to share my first take 12 for the year with our new little one. As usual I'm not doing a theme, just documenting our every day life. We have had a third birthday and a 40th anniversary to celebrate today, so our usual Saturday of odd jobs and swimming lessons gave way to parties and a late afternoon sleep for all four of us.

Are you taking 12? Don't forget to share them on Instagram or Twitter with #take12 hash tag or in our Flickr group

I've been using Instagram to take my photos each month (mostly) supplemented with my Canon IXSUS point and shoot.

Here’s my photos for the day so far…
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.

What is Take Twelve?

The goal of the 2012 Take Twelve Project is to take 12 photos on the 12th day of each month for a full 12 months—and scrapbook them! You can join in the fun any month of the year, but we hope you'll join in starting January 12. Get the scoop at ellapublishing.com/taketwelve.
Learn more about the history of the Take Twelve project and see Ella’s FAQ section.
