Day 76 to 78 – 365 Project
Did you sense a disturbance in the force, my love? Moments before you were all smiles and laughter, moments after you were in tears, but right in the middle there was this. Or was it simply that you were sick of me taking photos of you without letting you play with the camera? When you’re a bit bigger we’ll get you your own camera, I promise.
I remember this day well. You were a bit out of sorts and just wanted to be held. Whatever I did, I was always one step too far away. We had been indoors all day and we both needed some fresh air. You love being outdoors. We didn’t stay long before heading home for dinner, but it was enough for us both to relax and enjoy some smiles. You crawled your way over to where I was sitting and we had a good cuddle while talking about the things we could see.
One of my favourite things to do is to watch you as you explore the world around you. Even the simplest things hold such wonders. Cracks in the pavement, or between concrete slabs, hold little treasures of leaves, dust and rocks. Can it be lifted or poked? What’s under here or over there? What does it taste like?
