I have been a terrible photographer this week, and I have a list of excuses for it, but I won’t bore you with those. Instead, I’ll just skip over the days that have faded from memory (there was a lot of going through cupboards, going through boxes and listing things on freecycle!) and show you the highlights that I did photograph.
Day 219 – A BBQ with Bloggy Friends & a major milestone!
A lovely day spent with Vic, Yuri, Emma, Jon, Hayley and a handul of other new faces. I never thought I’d enjoy a gathering with so many kids present, but I did – shows you how motherhood has softened me!
This was also the day Ameli decided that she no longer needed a finger, a hand or a sofa as support but that she could get up and walk on her own! A good five steps and I was so busy chatting, I didn’t register till after the fact what I had just seen!Â The following day she took off at full speed and hasn’t stopped since!
Day 220 – Little Girl Walking
So, here she is. 10 Months and 4 days and she’s off like a rocket and loving it! That’s my princess.
Day 221 – Visiting
We spent the day with my friend Gloria who was having a staycation for the week. It was lovely catching up – I don’t get to see my working friends much anymore…
Day 222 – Messy Play
Ameli gets bored really easily, so I have to keep coming up with things for her to do. So we made some shakers for her, and here are the initial stages. I loved how much she loved the coloured water. It was almost as much fun as the end result. Thank heavens food colouring washes out!
And that’s the end of our week, but since we’re three days short, I’ll leave you with these beautiful pictures taken by a young lady I am proud to call my friend, Hayley Glenister. She just started out as a photographer a little while ago – I think she has an amazing talent!
Thank you for joining us for (most of) our week in pictures!
