14/52 & 15/52

135 days old.

142 days old.

A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014.

I left it two weeks again on the 52 project but the weeks go so quickly I can hardly keep up. I'm so proud of the photographs I've been taking of Matilda, I can't wait to see them all lined up together when we reach 52/52. I started the Couch to 5K app this week and have completed three days of it. I am not a runner but I've longed to be one for a while. I've always been pretty bad at sports and exercise. When I started high school I joined netball and hockey but never getting picked to actually play in any matches meant I gave up and stuck to reading books instead. My goal is to one day be able to go out and run for half an hour quite happily. For it to be that time for myself and not be the heart straining task it is now.

I think about things differently now I have Matilda because my attitude towards things affects her future attitude towards things so I'm thinking more about my own health and how I look after myself. Never have my actions had such consequences. I'm abit consumed with talk of weaning at the moment. Nick and I are not fussy eaters and we like all kinds of food so I'm keen for Matilda to be an adventurous eater and I'm thinking of all kinds of ways to introduce different foods when the time comes. We are going to have a go at purees when she reaches 5 months - in 9 days!! - but if she's not interested then we'll postpone it a couple of weeks. Whatever happens, I think it will soon be the end of stain free baby clothes.
