Today is a three post day!
find these two around lunch time or so
Here are the main shots of January. I had so much fun getting each of these and I’m very happy for the chance to have this lovely weekly inspiration and encouragement from the whole group and Sally especially.
On to February! This week Sally urged us to pay attention to our surroundings for a chance to capture a heart. I read the prompt and scanned the room and sure enough I could find at least ten on all manner of toys scattered across the living room. So I held that Minnie Mouse bow on its side in my proverbial back pocket, should I get desperate. It took until Thursday until…
Averleigh and I shared lunch and at her request, we had pear. As I was cutting it the seeds from one quarter that I was cutting fell on my thumb and I flicked them off – OMG straight onto the next piece – is that a heart?
Me: “Eeeee!” put down the knife. wipe hands on shirt. run into other room to grab iPhone.I imagine at least a few more “Where?”s followed, but I’ll spare ya. I’m basically in love with this picture since she gets quite excited about having pear and usually brings it up by saying “dada bought pear – Hooray! Pear please.” and throws her arms up in the air. It’s one of my favourite current lines and reminds me I should be writing these things down.
Averleigh: “Whatcha doin’ mama?”
Me: “I just have to take a picture of our pear”
Me: “Because there’s a heart on it”
Me: “Because the seeds fell that way”
Me: “Hm, I’m gonna say gravity”
Averleigh: “Where?” (phew, answer accepted in four!)
Me: “Here babe, here are your pieces” picture taken, pear cut and in front of her.
Indulge me one more! She’s big on politeness and can only recently reach to open and close doors. So she enjoys opening her door to let the cat leave post snuggle every night. Cat walks through and she sweetly says: “You’re welcome Roxy”. Mama boast over.
Oh yes my captured heart has completely captured my heart.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s little hearts, big hearts, sorta hearts this week from the links at Sally’s blog
