I know I always go on about it but I really, truly love Lyra’s eye. Such a perfect copy of her Daddy’s, every time I look at them my love grows.

(Also looking at this I noticed that Lyra has…

I am very quick to take pictures of the good moments and a stranger looking at them would get a very distorted view of my life. We had a great time in Wales but it wasn’t without it’s bad moments. Lyra started the week by being extremely clingy and so, even though I had willing extra hands to help she only wanted me. I worried that I would never be able to relax although luckily Lyra settled in…
