Little Boy Blue


Jack was battling a nasty old cold all week. It was difficult to see him so miserable - I felt so powerless. We were delighted when he seemed to turn a corner today. So we wrapped up warm and took a trip to the beach. We didn't stay long as even in our warmest coats, it was still freeeeezing! The last thing I wanted was Jack to get sickity-boo again! Jack was wearing a hat, mittens and chinos from H&M, a puffa jacket from Zara kids, and his Aigle Giboulee welly boots.


I'll leave you with a portrait I snapped of Jack last week. It made me briefly question whether I should get this young man a haircut. Then I caught myself on and realised there is no way I could bring myself to get these beautiful golden curls chopped off!
The child is my pride and joy.

  15. I think you better give him a hair cut as when he is growing up all will ask "Who is that cute little girl" .. isn't that annoying? - And yes to let him feel good by being a boy - He can have his curls anyway :) Superb photos, Jack's Mum! ;)
