Today I decided baby Felix and I needed a leisurely day. No plans, no catch up's, no appointments. A day to ourselves, to do whatever popped up. That's exactly what we did. After we dropped Master Angus off at preschool, we cruised by our local shops, to pick up a few necessities. Then headed off home for a day of hanging out. Together.
It is rare I spend time alone with Felix. Thursdays and Fridays are seen as an opportunity to race around meeting up with friends and family, knocking chores off the 'to do' list. Mostly the ones too difficult to accomplish with two children in tow. So it was a real treat to watch my little babe at work and play. He is SO busy these days. Sourcing out projects everywhere he roams. Scott has always said our boys are working on their next scheme, even as we are shutting down the one they're on. Yes, I'm talking about the major obsession with the toilet roll, Felix! and the fascination with pulling the DVD out of the Tv cabinet and the overwhelming urge to yank the ironing board out of it's cleverly disguised (or so I thought) position next to the fridge AND the demolition of my tupperware cupboard at every. chance. you get.
It was a productive day for us both though, relaxed, but productive. I love how Felix has claimed the little step at the back of our house as his own. It's his latest favourite pitstop, where I could swear he sits and ponders the world around him. I HAD to capture a shot or two of him kicking back on that little step. He is such a Kool Kat. I savour every moment of these days with just the two of us. I know I'm going to miss them incredibly, come July when I return to work.
