Later in the night, the heavens opened. A big thunderstorm.
But you wouldn't know it this morning. We woke up to stillness, lots of pale blue and chirpy birds.
So I knew what we were doing. No point Luca getting out of his breakfast-stained t-shirt. He was going to get very dirty.
Luca wanted Kian to join him, but I couldn't face two muddy children. 'But why not? He's walking now, Mummy!'. Yes, he's walking. But he's not up to jumping just yet. He would have ended up with his face planted in the squelchy mud.
A stormy night and a bright day. A great combination. And I'm very grateful for their timing.
On the subject of walking, I anticipated it being less exciting the second time around. But Graeme and I reacted just the same. Plus this time, there was an extra pair of hands clapping and cheering on.
Here's one of my favourite shots of Kian a few days after he started walking. I was trying to get a picture of him walking towards me. But this was so much better. One of my best Point + Shoot.
