Having not really taken many photographs for what seems like weeks upon weeks, I took lots this week! Some of them are really special and show Little M’s character brilliantly – but almost all of those aren’t blog friendly! There’s mess in the background, or hubby’s there in his dressing gown, or I’ve taken it in a hurry and the focus isn’t quite right. Or, like this one before I edited it, I’ve taken it by throwing myself on the floor, phone in hand, trying to capture whatever it is that Little M is up to, resulting in ridiculously wonky lines that look just plain wrong.
Fortunately, I was able to straighten it up without chopping Little M’s head off!
I’m not even sure the focus is quite right in this one, to be honest. But I love it, so that’s that! It shows her about to launch herself off the sofa into another bit of walking, which she’s so totally got the hang of this week. I’ve been saying, “I bet when she does it, she’ll just do it, and that will be that!” with regard to her walking for months, while secretly worrying that she may never do it! But this week she has just been toddling about more and more, and by Sunday she actually seemed to be walking more than crawling. Hurrah!
I love the colour in this photograph, too. From Little M’s gorgeous Lilly and Sid outfit (more on that another time!) to the Grimm’s rainbow we were playing with (okay, it was mostly me playing with it, but Little M enjoyed knocking down my various creations!).
I’m teaching two consecutive days this coming week, so I imagine I’ll be back to trying to squeeze in a photo where I can. I’m hoping Black Friday will bring some camera-related bargains, too, so I can upgrade from my phone to a ‘proper’ camera! I can’t make any guarantees that they’ll be any less blurry or wonky, though…!
