"Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man" 
(Francis Xavier - Jesuit Order)

'The guy who lives' here and I always joke that based on the above quote, we had seven years to 'shape', direct and mould these small people into the adults they would become.

Two tiny people heading out into the world.
Whether this is really true or not remains to be seen.
But if it were, then I am absolutely delighted with who they have become.

Miss A on the left and Miss L with her pinkie in the air!

When sleeping they always reached out for each other
Seven years ago today these two little people stole our hearts away and are yet to give them back.
They had been long-wanted and are now much-loved.

It's been an amazing year for them - starting school and the incredible experiences and confidence this has brought to them both.

I am delighted by their eagerness to learn, to experience all school and life have to offer, their ability to get in and try new things, the way they love, laugh and life their lives; together and apart.

Their constant companion - who always manages to worm her way into the middle of photos!
We love them more than these words and pictures can express; each for their own gifts and talents, challenges and joys.


Happy birthday gorgeous girls.

What a beautiful post Karen! Such gorgeous photos of your girls, then and now, and such lovely words to celebrate them.
That seven years thing used to terrify us a bit, especially with our second boy, but he came good, ha :)
