Isn't there something lovely about that as a date?
So pretty and balanced.

And it was a special date for us
because it marked a special point.
The little guy was born after 39 weeks and 5 days of pregnancy.
And 11.11.11 marked 39 weeks and 4 days of life in the outside world.
It was the very last day when I had been his home for longer.

So I didn't just take one picture.
I photographed a whole day in the life of the little man.

Having a little morning play after his breakfast and morning nap.
How quickly things have changed.
Gone are the days of me getting out a few toys for him to play with,
now he picks them himself.
Time for some lunch.
Cheesy English muffin with Marmite on
and some grapes.
Mmm, tasty.
After a nap, it's time for another play.
Who needs toys when an empty drinks bottle is so fun.
Remembering to take a brief pause in play
to watch the Hot Dog Dance on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Before you know it,
it's time to eat again.
Broccoli and cauliflower cheese
followed by a nice fromage frais.
A bit more playtime,
including a bit of naked crawling around,
which is his absolute favourite thing to do.
Then it's bath time for the water baby.
It was a hair wash night too.
Then after drying off and getting into some PJs
there is just enough time for a cuddly story with Mummy
before some milk
and then bed.

So that's a day in the little guy's life.

I wonder how different it will be in another 39 weeks and 5 days time. . .


  1. I did the same thing. it was great to have the camera out and be forced to take lots of pictures.
    It would be interesting to do the same in a few months and see how things have changed.

  2. Looks like he had a fab day and it included Mickey Mouse Club House, so you can't go wrong! x

  3. How lovely that it was a special day for you too. Good old Tara for coming up with that just for you ;)

  4. Lovely photos - he's growing up so fast!

  5. Ahhh I love this. I can remember it being a really big deal when Iyla was 9 months old as it meant that she had been out of me for as long as she was in me. He is such a cutie x

  6. What a lovely day you had- looks like he kept you busy! x

  7. Awww such a lovely look into his day to day routine - really special x

  8. Looks like you had a great day and here's to the next 39 weeks and 5 days!

  9. Such beautiful photographs - a wonderful record of a special day.

    My Son loves plastic water bottles too - he has 2; 1 filled with rice & the other with stones!
