My 2013 in 13 pictures:
Scott got ill a couple of times this year. He had a sickness bug in April and chickenpox in the summer. I hate it when his liveliness is crushed. I am so thankful to have a healthy wee boy.
Sk8r boi. For months, Scott went everywhere by scooter.
Scott started really talking about his friends this year. He had his first birthday party with a friend from nursery that I didn’t know.
Transitions: In the past year Scott has lost his night-time dummy, his nappies, his highchair and his cot.
Conquering things: Scott wanted to get up this slide in Kelvingrove Park for ages this year. He finally made it in May.
We had a lovely summer and had so many paddle days.
Small steps: Scott completed the Steps in our nearest park in May. He was so pleased and proud.
The Singing Kettle: We discovered the Singing Kettle this year. We love it!
Summer holidays: I had lots of great day trips with Scott this year. He loved the water. This is one of my favourite days at Ayr Beach Park.
Darwin Forest – our summer holiday this year. I loved this place. I ran through this forest in the mornings and it felt like my own special place.
Jack and the Beanstalk: This picture represents a lot – the start of homework tasks, show and tell preparation, wanting Scott to feel proud of things his mum and dad have created for him and the loss of my boy’s beautiful baby curls. The tears did fall!
Great Scottish Run, Glasgow Half Marathon: I am getting more into my running this year and completing this race gave me such a sense of pride and achievement. I have signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon in 2014. Eek!
The 3 of us: We have very few pictures of the 3 of us. This is my favourite – on holiday together, bliss.
Farewell 2013. It’s been emotional. x
