“Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

The Minpins by Roald Dahl

Capturing precious moments on camera is so important to me, I love looking back upon photos from when mine where tiny, with sleepy, milky grins and those toddler shots of them learning to walk. They love it too, we have such fun as a family looking back at old photographs. Now with Instagram it is like having a album on our phones, and it is part of what I love about Instagram. With Catie and I starting #mummyshot it is so great getting to see all your gorgeous captures too, we really appreciate you sharing them with us.

Here are my favourites from this week, they make me think of the above quote, these little darlings really are finding magic in their world.

Let me introduce you to the photographers of these very cute pics from week 12!

I also totally adore this capture from @letstalkmommy of her poor little one who was not well this week, so sad when they are poorly, she looks so cosy here though. Feel better little one.
