bump: blue

So the sun came out for about two minutes today. As soon as we saw a patch of blue sky we grabbed jackets and cameras and headed to the shore where the blue wall made for perfect bump shots. Whoa this bump and this baby - heavy, big and oh so round. 36 weeks. I'm guessing I've got about four weeks to go but I know all too well that babies come when they're ready. I could birth in two weeks. Or six. I'm not too attached to a date or a week and I'll try my hardest to stay that way.

It was so nice to bask in the sunshine this afternoon, to feel rays on my face and my belly. Che, like every child around these parts, is suffering from extreme cabin fever, so he was grateful for digging, collecting and splashing.

Before long the clouds crept in and hung low and we came home. Right now there's chicken noodle soup simmering away. We're all a bit sleepy - salt air sleepy. The good kind.

Thanks so much to Katja from Eco Bohemia who sent me my gorgeous raw silk scarf, seen in these pics.

  1. Gorgeous shots!
    i think our departure date is probably the same as your due date. But maybe a few days before or after. So much to do. So much fun.

  2. Beautiful, beautiful photos. Love the bump against the blue wall. And hooray for blue skies! Even if only momentary. Enjoy your chicken soup, we've got a pot of kumera and red lentil soup simmering away. Kellie xx

  32. I'm with Che - I've got crazy cabin fever too. We haven't had as much rain in Geelong as Sydney has but it's still been cold and outside doesn't seem all that appealing.

    Such beautiful photos! Your little boy is absolutely gorgeous.
