I’ve really struggled since Theo was born to find the right balance of kiddy pictures and parenting content on this blog. For a while I did an update once a month, but even that started to seem self-indulgent and so I stopped. But the problem is without the reason to capture the photos I start to drift with recording his life.
Last night when I was browsing round blogs I found a link-up that I have decided I want to take part in. The idea is to capture one photo of your child every week as they grow. Just one photo, I can commit to that.
And so we came home from nursery today and I took the first photo. His hands are covered in glue and pen, a little glimpse of the morning he has had. The time I didn’t see.
Theo loves nursery. He never hesitates as I leave him, just dives in to whatever activity is laid out for the day. We recently started allowing him to stay for lunch on one of his three mornings and he really enjoys it. In fact he’s tried his luck a few times with sitting down and helping himself on days where I am collecting him at 12. Last Friday he got away with it. Sat there with a big grin on his face while I had to wait for him to empty his plate of his free lunch.
He smiles at everyone and I believe that if he keeps that up, he’ll go far.
