This is my first week for the Mamatography Photo Challenge with Diary of a First Child. This is a short edition since we began on New Year’s Day. I did not get very good shots this time around but I am happy that I did take a photo each day. We were told the highest drop out point is 21 days and that it also takes that long to form a habit. So I’m counting on all of you to cheer me on so I’ll keep going!
This first image was of my family chatting on Skype with my Nana and Aunt in the UK. My Nana has never met Little Man and has only seen him in photos or heard him (briefly) over the phone. She was completely amazed that she was talking to us through the computer and could see us at the same time. It was also my Dad’s birthday so she did not want to know she had a 58 year old son. Her favorite line is “From my legs down I’m 42 and from the neck up I’m 21!”
This was the first day all vacation that we were just us – no visitors or extended family. It was nice to just sit together on the couch. I had tried to get another photo of Little Man holding both of our hands on the couch (it was really precious) but he wouldn’t hold the position long enough for the phone to take the photo. I took this with my new iPhone 4S. I’m not particularly impressed with the forward facing camera quality but it is useful to get Little Man excited about the photo because he can see himself.
This was my shot for today because I returned to work today after the holiday break. Little Man came in around 5 am which was good because I forgot to change the set time on the alarm before I slunk into bed last night at 12:30 am because a certain little boy was fighting bedtime. I was having a dream that I woke after 9 am and wasn’t concerned that I had missed my morning classes. I do love my job – I just really wanted more time with my boys.
I had a lot to do after work and Little Man came with. By the time we got back to the apartment – he was spent.
