August seems so much like a toddler now, and Eleanor, a child. I love them so much, but moreover, I really like them.
I took these photos a couple of weeks ago. I tend to take photos when the house is picked up, not when toys are strewn about. I read other blogs and I think ‘in their house, the toys look artfully placed, and in my house, it looks like chaos and plastic.’ Looking at these photos though, I love the informality. This is how we live. This is what our living room usually looks like.
This is the environment my kids will remember, and it’s a pity I don’t document it more. If not for you, then for me. And for them.
