I’m taking photographs of Eleanor and August each day until baby number three arrives, to document our last 4-6 weeks as a family of four. I first did this project to document our time as a family of three before August was born.
Eleanor, you’re getting good at drawing what you see. That’s our blue sofa and the fiddle leaf fig on the first floor, the TV upstairs, and the playroom on the third floor. You said you drew some toys and a ball on the floor of the playroom, because it’s messy. (Um, have you not seen the rest of the house right now, kid?)
The bug-catching duo. We went outside to play and right away, you two spotted four of the squirmiest worms we’ve ever seen! Eleanor, you set about creating a home for them in that blue pail, while August, you dug to find more.
We all went to the Renegade Craft Fair today, and you two were pretty tired by the end of the day. These balloons perked you up though! Well… briefly. The zombie’s head popped almost immediately. We got another head, and that one popped too. August, maybe it just means you’re a really good zombie slayer?
Um, oops. Sorry, August! Sometimes mama needs a reminder that she is most definitely NOT a capable hairdresser, and that she should not be trusted with the scissors. (We’ll get thee to a professional soon. Promise. Plus you’re still adorable, botched haircut or not.)
OK, that’s much better. A fresh haircut for you, August (to fix mama’s mistakes!), and a bang trim for you, Eleanor. Lookin’ good, guys.
Eleanor, you made your own camera today from a box that you wanted to ‘recycle’ (reuse). You asked daddy to cut a rectangle in the front and a circle in the back, and then you added a shutter on top and a lens. Say “cheese!”
It feels like fall! It wasn’t THAT cold this morning (about 50 degrees), but you insisted on hats and hoods. We did at least manage to get you both out the door and to school without being fully outfitted in the mittens and scarves you were wearing around the house after breakfast.
