Photo-Heart Connection - May

Now we are six by AA Milne

When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six
now and forever.

Believe me when I say, that would be fine with me. :)


  1. I'm guessing your daughter is six?! I love that poem my A.A. Milne and still have my childhood book which I seem to have decorated with wax crayons!

  2. Such a cute portrait! Yes, we'd like to keep them small as long as possible....I taught kindergarten for many years, and I love this age. Perfect photo -heart connection!

  3. What a sweet, beautiful photo and poem! I totally understand wanting her to be six forever, it is such a wonderful age, still little but just a big worldly.

    This is a great photo-heart connection, Becs!

  4. I agree, something magical about being 6! Very sweet photo.

  5. Becs, this is absolutely beautiful!
    Six is such a wonderful age, and this is truly a perfect Photo-Heart connection.

  6. Ah, Winnie the Pooh and AA Milne, two of my favs! I love this photo. Captures the innocence of being 6 and the comfort of a silly old bear (with a blanky, maybe?) perfectly!

  7. This is a very sweet photo and poem Becs! Six forever I understand this well.

  8. You managed to capture so much of childhood in this one photo Becs! The cute innocence of it, the mixture of growing limbs and cuddly friends. The results of exploration in that skinned knee. Beautiful poem and image for the Photo-Heart Connection.

  9. I loved looking at this photo. Without ever seeing the child's face you knew so much about her. My grandson just turned six, a magical age. This was a perfect photo-heart connection.

  10. that image says 'six' all over it, what a great capture & a wonderful poem to feature with it. oh wouldn't it be great to keep our babies as they are now!

  11. Sweet. Is that a bit of a skinned knee I see... LOL.

  12. Oh, wow...this is so cool! What an absolutely great shot.

  13. How sweet! Absolutely beautiful! :)
    Six is such a wonderful age, oh yes.

  14. Oh, I love that scab on her knee - what a perfect representation of a girl of six! Enjoy it - it goes by much too quickly.

  15. This is so incredibly dear. I love the poem you've paired with it. The crop is delightful and I couldn't help but notice the little scrape on the knee saying this girl has a bit of spunk and well as her sweet pink demeanor.

  16. How very sweet your photo and the poem you selected. All of the details pull me in with a longing to find that inner six year old again.

  17. I was late posting and now I'm just getting around to commenting on everyone's photo-heart connection! Let me say, I LOVE THIS!! What a precious photo, there's such a sweetness and inocence about it and I love the poem!!
