This is my personal project and one that is very close to my heart: Photographing one whole day in my life, it began a couple of years ago on Monday Jan 1, 2018 when I did 1 day a week but now I am in my third year and am only doing them on every full moon. I hope you enjoy following along!
We left the house just before 9:00 and we arrived early enough at the station to hop on the train when it goes to Lymington pier and back and the two of you had lots of fun running around. Once we got to brockenhurst we changed trains and about 15 min later we arrived at our destination: Christchurch
I had a shower and when I was standing in front of the mirror you were fascinated by my lopsided boobs and wouldn't stop jiggling the bigger one! It's a good three or four times bigger. You said, "it was like a trampoline. And so fat and big!" When we came downstairs you surprised me by wanting some boob and Forrest wasn't impressed!
It took us about two hours to arrive, daddy had already booked parking at at a hotel in kensington which made it super easy and then we walked for about 20 min or so to the natural history museum. Forrest you fell asleep right as we arrived and slept through our whole tour of the dinosaurs which you, Nixie, really loved...
I looked up into the tree and saw a lone crow staring back at me. I have always loved crows and got really happy and took a few steps closer and looked into her eyes and invited her to come down to us, I even said to you Nixie how I wished she would just come down and say hi to us! And I kid you not about 10 seconds later that is exactly what she did (you insisted this crow was a she)! You had some crumbs in your hands from Forrest's biscotti which the crow loved, she was even eating directly out of your hands!
It’s our third year coming to Stonehenge for the Solstice and there’s always such a magical feeling in the air walking towards them in the dark. I had goosebumps and felt a little emotional, I felt a deep sense of peace and was surrounded by such beautiful energies. When we arrived at the stones we laid out our blanket and had a little picnic.
After Forrest woke up we had lunch and then got ready to go visit some of our favourite people: Elina, Levana & Zoryan. You, Nixie were so excited to see them, and seeing all of our babies together always makes me emotional, I can't believe it was just over a year ago that little Zoryan was born. You and Levana played with her babies...
Then we all had fun watching you (Forrest) practise your walking. You are getting better and better at it everyday and today you managed a whole twelve steps in a row! You really love it and have such an excited look on your face & Nixie kept getting you to laugh and you loved walking towards her outstretched arms and she's overflowing with such pride!
It's our 4th proper Wednesday together and I am really loving this one on one time with you. And it's also really great for me too, to be able to have some me time during the day while you sleep. I have even been able to breathe new life into my meditation practice. It's not every day like it used to be before I became a mother but at least I get to do it consistently once a week.
You my little Forrest just love being amongst nature where you can explore with your little fingers and put basically everything into your mouth.. I couldn't take my eyes off you for a second before you'd stuff your mouth full of old rotting acorns.. And you still love to eat moss...
For the past couple of months I have not been very good at keeping up with this project and have been doing it on random days.To be absolutely honest for the past couple of months I haven't been doing very well at all mentally and I realised that maybe it could be postnatal depression.
