"But Ma, I don't want to stop playing in the dirt and come inside for bed" - Theo.

My brother and niece have been visiting us for the past week and start their journey back home tomorrow. We've had a lovely time together, their first trip to Tasmania, and I've really enjoyed having art supplies spread across the kitchen table and drawing for hours on end with Rose and Luke. And I think just being in the company of an older child for a few days has helped Theo with his development. He is a bit obsessed with Rosie and I'm sure he'll be sad to see her go. They've spent lots of time playing. I love that the weather is warm enough at the moment for Theo to run around outside sans clothes. It's just hard to convince him to come back inside!

Theo posing for me with a package we posted last week.

Theo has a lovely internet friend named Jack. Jack is a total sweetie and lives in the UK with his mum, dad and sister. Theo has been the lucky recipient of some lovely little presents from Jack, including a video of him running around his backyard talking about Theo. I finally got around to sending some little goodies to Jack in the little package above. Theo helped me to send it/tried to tear it up/eat it. I spent many a night painting the front of the package while watching Outlander. I've been painting lots of envelopes lately, I just need to write the letters to put in them!

Theo humouring me with a cheeky face while I tried to take a photo of his new outfit.

I've been looking for an achievable 52 week project for 2015 and I thought that sharing a photo of Theo for each week in 2015 would be a good choice. I haven't been keeping up with my little journal I kept for him during my pregnancy and his first year and I'd really like to return to it. Moments when he is this small are so fleeting, I feel a sense of desperation wanting to capture everything about him at this age.
