Photo an Hour :: July 31, 2013

Last Wednesday I took a photo an hour, my first one since Milo was born. My days are pretty different now and are very much based on the hunger of a little boy. Breastfeeding is pretty much a full time job, especially during growth spurts! Milo is definitely in the middle of one at the moment. Anyways, here is my day.

10 am :: We got a late start today. Sometimes we get up when Ivan goes to work but other days Milo and I go back to bed for a few hours. I took some time to answer emails this morning. I thought I was bad at prompt responses before...now I'm ridiculous. I apologize to anyone who emails me!

11 am :: Milo is starting to like being put down in this little bouncy seat for short periods of time now. He is getting more interested in just looking around.

12 pm :: Getting ready to head out to a social group. I really psyched myself up so that I wouldn't chicken out.

1 pm :: In the carseat, ready to go.

2 pm :: Hanging out at Barefoot Babies. The group was really great. It was super laid back and people were so friendly. I can't wait to go back.

3 pm :: After the group I picked up a few treats for Ivan and I and a smoothie for myself from Sestre's Bakery.

There were quite a few more awake hours in the evening but I called it quits at 8:00.

So that's my day! I'm excited to keep up regular photo an hour days to see how things change in the coming months.

Have a great Tuesday!



  1. I just started following your blog, and read all the posts from the past year or so. Everything in your life is so colourful! Milo is adorable, and the two of you look like awesome parents.
    Congratulations, and keep being awesome!

  2. Aww, he's grown so much Elycia! He's gorgeous. :)

  3. I loved my Moby wrap when my lil guy was born, I was able to get so much done with that on! Unfortunately it became much to warm for me to wear and my lil guy grew out of it. Enjoy it! I hope it lasts longer for you than it did with my man.

  10. gorgeous! I can't believe how much your posting since milo arrived! i am so impressed. I'm not sure if you want to turn your blog into a mummy blog but would be very interested in how the fabric diapers are going.

  11. I haven't been to the wed group at barefoot babies-but I've been a bunch of times to the friday group and like it. I've been missing it recently because we've been busy, plus I must admit I don't live driving down there. Next week I lined up a bunch of baby outing-monday baby picasso (with momstown.ca group), wed. Leche group and mom and baby yoga, and maybe friday I'll attempt a barefoot babies outing. I love just walking around town now during the day!
