I love this week’s photos despite it being a rough week on the parenting front. Athena has regressed back to waking every two hours during the night and is super clingy during the day so a lot of coffee is being consumed in our house at the moment. This week’s photo of Athena was taken during a woodland walk we took on Sunday afternoon just after she’d screamed and screamed to be let out of her wrap. Matt had resorted to carrying her like this which is her favourite thing ever and she was looking back at me with her hungry eyes. These are definitely her ‘feed me’ eyes and combined with the fist in the mouth I knew I only had a minute to snap this photo before stopping to nurse her!
I think Lyra has been a little jealous of all of the attention her little sister was demanding this week and so decided to crank up the terrible twos a notch. Which is just what this sleep deprived Mama needed. Her photo was taken midweek during, what I think was, the best day we had together. We spent all morning outside walking slowly to the park collecting sticks on the way and even got what will probably be our last ice cream van ice cream of the year on the way home. Despite her being beautifully behaved whilst we were out you can definitely see a hint of that attitude creeping in in this photo.
