Ulysses turned nine-months-old yesterday. I can hardly believe it’s been that long, and then again sometimes it seems like a decade has passed. Here’s baby in a diaper box we were playing with a few weeks ago.
He’s been sick this week and very in need of his mama, a rare thing really. He’s an independent little man for the most part. He’s very curious and makes his way around the house examining things, touching them repeatedly with his little pointer finger. He’s drawn to tiny specks of lint on the carpet, freckles on my arm–that sort of thing. He especially loves to watch people. He’ll transform from completely unmanageable with me alone at our house to the happiest kid on the block when put in a room with other babies and people. (Not unlike his papa.) We have so much fun and I cherish every breath we have together–at the same time wondering how I can cope with all of the demands on my time. I haven’t sat at my sewing machine in ages, although I do pick up the baby’s quilt to hand sew every once in a while. I’ve gone back to work and we’re house hunting, which has claimed any free seconds I might have. But I’m rolling with this flow (there’s no ebb around these parts) for a season or two.
Chara Michele over at Sew Click Create was generous enough to shoot our family for free to use as part of her portfolio back in the early fall; Uly is about four months here. Yes, I’m just now getting around to posting! She did the most fabulous work and we were hard-pressed to pick out a handful of the images to frame and give to friends and family. She’s local to Seattle and I highly recommend her services–everyone needs professional pictures! Head over to her blog and professional site to see her work.
