Hero's birthday was last week. She choose to have a cupcake decorating party with 7 friends.
It is hard to believe that she is 7 years old. At times she can seem so much older. She is only 30 cm shorter then then me and can be such a mature and wise girl for her age. Listening to her read to Iggy and Banjo on the couch really cements how far she has come since starting school 2 years ago. And i get a bit emotional about what an amazing sister she is to Iggy and will be to her new brother/sister.
I love this sequence of shots. She had just won the trophy for best decorated cupcake, and they really demonstrate a comic and silly side that is hard to capture in photo's.
Jem and i often think about her personality and wonder how it will evolve as she enters the teenager and adult years. Is this a good age to help direct their interests in a more refined way?
Less free play more structured activities and hobbies?
Could we influence who they will be or will life and fate do it regardless?
