Daniel has had a week of misery this week, his sister picked up a dose of hand, foot and mouth in playschool which Daniel also got.
This results in little water blisters on the hands, soles of the feet and in the mouth, these then burst and end up looking a little bit like chicken-pox.
The result was complete an utter misery for the little man.
It’s very sad when they can’t tell you what’s wrong with them or what hurts and with this kind of thing there is very little you can give them for it.
The good news is, he is on the mend and will no doubt be back to his usual cheerful self in no time.
What with winter well and truly on it’s way it’s time to break out the wooly hat.
For a few fleeting moments I had Daniel all to myself today.
I spent a while following him around the house with camera. I was really struggling to find some good natural light.
We eventually got to the patio doors and there it was, the largest and most natural soft-box I could wish for, he gave me a look as if to say he wanted to go outside and enjoy the Winter sunshine.
We finally got around to renewing our family membership at Dublin Zoo.
It remains one of the best days out in Dublin and is one of those places you never tire of.
It’s a great day out for the kids.
Daniel is still a bit too small to trick or treat with his sisters. Still, it didn’t stop him dressing up for the occasion though.
I think we prepared just over 50 bags of assorted sweets for the neighbourhood kids and within an hour they were gone. Every time the door bell went Daniel got all excited and came running up to me so I could pick him up and answer the door. His sisters were only out for a short while and brought home enough sweets to see them well into the new year.
Shot taken at a family Christening. Ciara decided it would be best for Daniel to miss the second half of the ceremony, this was due to his constant urges to shout at the priest any time he spoke.
It’s one of those things kids do, they just have to shout in church, it’s kind of a tradition, the echoes help! 🙂
Loving the outfit he had on which was sent from France by my parents.
Couple of photos taken on a recent trip to Glenroe Open Farm in Co.Wicklow.
It’s a great spot for the kids to run wild and a chance for Daniel to feed some animals that are just about the right size for him.
The pigmy goats were his favourites, they are very cute. They kept licking his fingers while he shoved hands full of grass through the fencing. Of course he thought this was hilarious.
