the project – day 20 | Melbourne Baby Photography

Swimming in the pool is very exhausting.  So is playing with friends.  Ash asked for a ‘nap’ and the ipad.  10 minutes later, even that was too exhausting..

Today when you woke up, it seemed you had grown a foot overnight.  The pants you wore last week (your favourites) are suddenly 4 inches too short.  Last year you were one of the shortest at school, I’m wondering if this year you’ll be one of the tallest in your class…

Usually it’s me that gets eaten alive by mosquitoes, and it doesn’t help that I’m allergic to one breed of them (yup, there’s a few, stay away from the stripy ones!)  The kids, up until this week have escaped their blood sucking path.  Eman scared me one evening at midnight, out of bed, with red dots all over him.  “Mum I’m itchy”… well perhaps the 14 bites over your arms and face might be why..

The horrible little insect got him twice on his left eye.  The next morning it was slightly less swollen, but made his already LONG eyelashes stick out straight even more.  I couldn’t resist.  They are lashes every girl dreams of..

I’m being naughty again and uploading two images!  For two years I’ve had the mini-pool in the garage waiting for the kids to be a bit older.  I’m a little paranoid around water with children, but after talking to my friend Chrissy, I could not resist.  We came home, and two hours later, the kids jumped in.  The girls raced over as well and we soon had 5 water-logged children splashing about having a ball.  Ash has always been a water-child, and hasn’t had a lot to do with water other than swimming in the bathtub or wading at the beach.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen this child smile and laugh as much as he did today.  He’s so used to be in the nude for bath time that he was NOT interested in a bathing suit!  This first one was the expression on his face 99.95% of the time.  The second, the only time he wasn’t smiling, well because, there was a plane.  And the world stops for planes..

the project – day 10

In Melbourne we’re in the middle of a heatwave, yesterday it reached 34 where we live, which isn’t too bad, but we have a few more days to go!  Our evaporative cooling struggles if the heat is blown in by a northerly wind due to the position of our home.  The boys played quietly for most of the day (however decided, since it was hot, that it was time to play in costumes, so the famous spiderman made an appearance after a few months off!)  and Ash was scooting around on the floor on his back after realising it was too hot to be in costume…  I chased him around with the camera, and managed to get a natural smile as he laughed infectiously!
