A Day in the Life – July 11, 2015

October 27, 2015


One of the big things on my To Do list before I gave birth was to shoot another Day in the Life. It had been almost a year since my last one and I hadn’t done one since moving overseas. Mostly though, I just wanted to have one full day to look back on from the time before we became a family of four. So two and a half weeks before I gave birth to another bouncing baby boy, I photographed our life here for a day. I had planned on blogging this before I gave birth, but Arlo decided to come a little early and it was put on hold. Now that a few months have passed, it feels funny looking through these pictures. I keep thinking I should have taken more pictures of Arlo. I can’t believe how easy it is to forget that there was life before this new little baby.

37 weeks pregnant on a warm Saturday in July, we woke up with donuts and coffee. We went to a kids’ fun run where Silas refused to run. We cleaned out the car and caught up on work. We walked to a snack shop for ice cream and fries and came home to nap. We had pizza for dinner and struggled at bath time. We read a story about the baby and binged on Netflix shows. Life seems so much simpler back then.
