Week two and week three

3:38 pm

week 2, originally uploaded by indiaeden.
I am still trying to take photos of the childen each week, can't say I'm very happy with the results so far, but I wont get any better unless I keep trying.

Week 3

Ernest turned 18 months at the beginning of the week, and today Florence would be 30 months, 2 1/2 years old.
I keep thinking of things I might want to say about that, but I can't find just the right words, and anyway, I'm pretty sure I've said it all before, over and over, and over again.
Thank goodness for Angie, and Catherine, and my other babyloss friends who say it all so much better than I can.

Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. I can't get a decent photo of 2 children, so good luck with this!

  2. Oh, but I am SO happy with your results! I think these are wonderful pictures. So much life, so much love, so much fun.

    Your children are beautiful!

    And I know what you mean about borrowing the words of others. I do it all the time. Thank you, brave writers.

    With love,

    Cathy in Missouri

    P.S. I have borrowed words of yours, too, Jeanette...I include you in that list of the brave.

  3. The bed photo is just wonderful and considering you are a family-bed family totally apt.

    Hop little bunny... poignant, what else can be said?

  4. See I think the photos are lovely AND I think your voice is as inspiring as the lovely ladies you mentioned... hugs!

  5. I love these pictures - especially the bed one.

    I feel pretty wordless these days too - I understand.

  6. Lovely children :) And 30 months... goodness. :/ Thinking of you.

    I seem wordless too now and suddenly realising that in the middle of all this impending birth stuff, Freddie's second birthday is creeping up. I don't know how that happened.

  7. Those photos are lovely! Your children are so gorgeous.

    2 1/2. It's hard to believe. I think of your Florence so often. If I ever should need a reminder, I'm sure I've mentioned before that there is a 'Florence Way' between our house and the nearest park and I will never, ever walk along that road without thinking of your daughter. I often have a little conversation with Jessica about Florence as we pass the road sign on our way to the swings.

    I'm glad you understood my recent post, it wasn't one that I felt entirely comfortable with. But it is just where I seem to have landed up at the moment.

    Your writing is beautiful Jeanette, I love reading your blog and looking at your beautiful photographs! Please never stop writing about your daughter, your Florence, even if you feel you've said it all over and over again, I want to hear it xo

  8. I love the weekly photos of your beautiful children. It is such a fabulous idea.

  9. I think you have done lovely on your photos, but I know one is one's hardest critic. I think of you often...of Florence, and your sewing, and your skirts, and your family. I am so thankful for people who can write their feelings so succinctly and well...such as the two you mentioned, and including you.


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
