Life with Otis

Wednesday, 26 July 2017

A few favourite moments from the newborn love bubble. It's obvious we love to hang out in this sunny corner of the home, and the IKEA oversized armchairs that my Mum gave us for Christmas have been the perfect spot for me to prop Otis up where he can see the goings on... and also the perfect spot for feeding and cuddling and gazing at his sweet little face. Oh baby Otis, we're SO glad you're here!

Bringing Otis home

Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Otis is now four months old and I'm feeling a need to record his first weeks and months here, as I did with the girls. I'm beginning to think about how I can tackle the organisation and printing of nearly a decades worth of photographs... mostly they remain in digital file format, unseen and unappreciated, lost and forgotten...on some dusty hard drive at the back of the cupboard. It's a sore subject for me, and just the thought of it sends me spiralling. But instead of getting overwhelmed and keeping this job firmly int he too-hard-basket, I'm just going to start week by week, starting with my most recent photos and gradually work back. So here we are, the most recent (and quite profoundly significant) events to occur in our household. I figure if I'm going to sort and print, I may as well upload them here too.

Growing baby Otis

No fancy photoshoot, no make-up, unbrushed hair, unplanned 'as-is' outfits, inexperienced photographer (Paddy!), terrible lighting.... but probably my most favourite series of photos. Just me and my babies, in our home, on one of our last days as a family of four. ...and if anyone is still out there reading this... hello! It's been a WHILE!
