It seems timely to be posting on Mothers Day. Imogen is 5 months today, and we are enjoying being together, learning about each other and adjusting to the world. I am not used to having so much time to ‘myself’, even if that is really time to my daughter; nursing her, cuddling her and playing and chatting when she feels like it.
I’ve been itching to do some work, and managed some sketch book stuff and started a couple of paintings. In reality the camera and phone camera are the most convenient way to document our new life. I’ve been posting lots of cute snaps for her grandparents, but what interests me more are the out-takes. Colicky baby, tiny jaundiced baby, frustrated baby, the ones that show the fragility of life and the tricky times.
