Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. I’m at the library, trying to work out if my contractions are simply Braxton Hicks ones or if they are the real deal. I even packed my hospital bag this morning just in case – they were that bad. I am anxious of course. After all, we are only just beginning Week 34. Ideally, Edward bear needs to stay in for another three weeks at least. But I trust the mid-wives and the doctors are our hospital. I know we, and more importantly, he, will be in good hands. All I can do is sit as still as I can and hope and pray for the best.
What happened in Week 6?
Angus started preschool again, I blogged about the boys’ room (before the bunk bed’s arrival), I captured my favourite portrait for The 52 Project, we finished Pete’s birthday invitations and we had Chinese New Year dinner at my parents’ place!
Number of pages and inserts?
Week 6 was a simple 2 page layout using Becky Higgins Design A page protectors. No inserts. This was a bit of a relief, after the multitude of pages and inserts it took to document our family holiday in Week 5!
Anything special about the photos?
Not really. All the photos were taken on my iPhone 4S. After I imported them in Aperture, I processed them all using the VSCO Film 01 Kodak Portra 800+ preset.
Favourite photo from this week?
Naturally, I love the photo of the three boys on the couch waiting for Nan to arrive. But I also like the shot of them at my parents’ place on Chinese New Year. I’ve taken the same shot over the last few years and it’s wonderful to see how our family has grown over time.
I really like the bright colours on page 1 and the more neutral colours on page 2. I particularly love how my maternity dress on the first page goes so well with the kaleidoscope artwork. Visual coincidences like that are the best.
