Life at home with Edward Bear has just been gorgeous. We’ve settled into a nice routine, and even though we are not getting as much sleep as before, I am absolutely loving every moment of it. Part of me still can’t believe that this sweet little guy is ours! I’m not sure how often I’ll be posting baby updates on the blog, but if you’re interested in seeing more photos, feel free to follow along on Instagram.
Onto Project Life. Would you believe that I actually completed Week 15 whilst in hospital? Because most of my weekly process is done on the laptop, it was pretty much a no-brainer since I had my Macbook Pro with me the whole time (yes, I am that woman). It was actually really lovely spending some of my quiet time in the evenings looking through photos of the boys and Rick, as it reminded me of how truly blessed I am. But anyway, this post is about Week 10, and as always, you can click on the images for a larger version.
What happened in Week 10?
I was 34 weeks pregnant and doing my best to get into a disciplined diet to control my gestational diabetes (hence the ham on toast, and the salmon with soba). Jamie and I enjoyed a lovely one-on-one date on Wednesday, when both Angus and Pete were at preschool (even if it was only a coffee date at our local carwash cafe). We transformed the older boys’ room with the new bunk bed, which the boys were simply giddy about. And to celebrate, Rick and I drank our first homemade iced coffee of the season.
Anything special about the photos?
Half the photos were processed using the VSCO Cam app on my iPhone. The rest were processed in Aperture on my Mac using the VSCO Film 01 Kodak Portra 800+ preset. All the photos were taken on my iPhone 4S.
Favourite photo(s) from the week?
Again, I have a number of favourites: the shot of my bare belly in the title card; the photo of Jamie with his babycino at the car wash cafe (I just adore his blissful expression; and definitely the black and white one of me and the boys trying to take a ‘selfie.’
I love the small pops of colour throughout this spread – for example, the stripy rug, my bangles, and the boys’ blue t-shirts.
