A Day In The Life is something I have wanted to do with Archer for a long time. There are so many things about him right now that I want to remember, and since our world is about to be rocked (in the best way!) by his first sibling, I thought this would be a good time to do it. These images are by no means award-winning, nor are they a reflection of my most creative work, but they are us, and they are perfect. I have also been playing lately with some filmy edits, which I am not sold on, but I think they bring a nice little touch to these snaps of our daily life. Plus, I live life on the edge.
Also, this post is picture heavy, so please be patient while it loads, it may be slow!
February 29, 2016.
It is not often that I am awake before Archer on a day we are spending at home. I really enjoy when he comes into our bed in the mornings to wake me up, but by 8:15 I couldn’t sleep any longer and my body was begging to be moved. A nice slow wake up in bed gave me the time to prepare for doing a Day In The Life project, which I thought would be special since it was February 29th, a bonus day, which by chance I had off work and could be at home.
9:09am: Patiently waiting for that little bum to stir.
9:23am: Oh hello.
9:27am: Decisions, decisions.
9:31am: Does anyone else feel like this face perfectly describes their morning?
9:41am: Some toons to get us moving (and a bribe to eat breakfast).
A little heart in my cereal <3
Coffe + lemon water is morning perfection.
10:45am: Someone got a little muddy outside.
11:10am: Dressed and ready to go.
11:37am: Who knew the library was closed on Mondays?! So disappointed.
11:55am: Home to some fun mail.
12:09pm: “I want to paint”
12:32pm: After approximately 3.5 minutes of painting, we are ready to have a bath.
1:21pm: Peeking undies at lunch.
1:29: A quick game of hockey.
1:38pm: It was a really quick game. On to trains.
1:46pm: Time for a nap!
2:11pm: Someone has trouble staying in bed…
4:06pm: Time to get everyone moving again
4:29pm: A snack that will almost definitely ruin your dinner.
5:21pm: Giving me a hand in the kitchen. And just like his mama, starting dinner prep with some tunes.
5:42pm: Some hockey while we wait.
6:00pm: Daddy’s home!
7:27pm: Slowing down and building with Dad before bed time.
8:17pm: No day would be complete without a meltdown (which is apparently very amusing for Dad!)
8:35pm: Taking care of our teeth and getting in our jim-jams.
10:41pm: Our turn to head to bed. Goodnight world.
