from the archives: morning walk

Oh, how I long to wear flipflops and a baby on my back again. (I've found winter babywearing to be a bit of a challenge with all the bulky coats, scarves, etc.) These photos are from a post in August 2009 (has it been that long?).

They capture Fiona and my first summer together so well. I was just finding my footing as a mother (woah, that foot reference to the above picture was an accident... seriously). Fiona was just starting to notice the world around her. We were getting to know each other. I remember this morning walk. Fiona fell asleep on our way home and I used her naptime time to photograph my portfolio in preparation to try to pick up some freelance work. Oh, those early months were poor. But happy. So very happy.
