Thankful Thursday: Record

The beautiful Naomi from Seven Cherubs has a project underway called Cherish Your Cherubs. This Thankful Thursday I am excited to be joining in on the first week of the project: Record.


I have an 8 year old boy. The day he was born is forever etched in my memory for reasons unexpected. He has three motorbikes and he LOVES them. He is a very proficient rider and spends lots of time with the Supertrucker doing bikey type things.

My big boy has a quick temper but is also very quick to laugh. He is incredibly loving and an amazing big brother to his siblings even when he finds being the eldest hard.

My boy has just joined a choir and has his first performance this weekend. I so wish I could be there to see it, but my parents are attending and we will be buying the DVD. He has a lovely singing voice and I love that he is making new friends and trying something new.

I love my big boy with all my heart.


I have a 6 year old daughter. She is the only one of our children to catch the Supertrucker's green eyes. She has a scar on her forehead from the time a big boy ran into a partially open door knocking it into her head, the steel catch got her square in the face. She was so very brave that night. And luckily scars are cool these days.

My big girl is determined. She is strong in a way I never have been and I love that. She is lean and wiry, thoughtful and sweet. She loves going to school, truly she was made for the routines and systems involved in the school day. Her teacher thinks she is amazing, because she is.

My big girl loves craft activities and has strong artistic skills. She loves creating and painting and making things for other people.

I love my big girl with all my heart.


I have a 2 year old boy, very nearly 3. He doesn't sleep at all well, so it is worth capturing when he does. My small boy is a delight. He is a gentle giant, the most loving and affectionate toddler you could imagine.

My small boy has systems. He finds lots of things difficult but he keeps trying. He loves watching his Dad and brother on the motorbikes but doesn't love the noise they make. My small boy is a sensitive little soul.

I love my small boy with all my heart.


I have a nine month old babygirl. She very rarely cries, but sometimes she does and I wanted to capture another part of her.

When I was pregnant the psychic sonographer told me she would be an easy going but much doted upon baby. She was right.

My babygirl astonished me with her beauty. She is calm and happy nearly all the time. She sleeps well and loves her food. A lot. She is the last baby for us and I'm so grateful for her every day. She completes us and we all adore her.

I love my babygirl with all my heart.


I am so thankful for all my children. I can not imagine the world without them and I count my blessings every day that I am their mother.

What are you feeling thankful for this Thursday?
