Photo an Hour ((starring Caleb)) ((and two months late))

Posted on

I’m a blogging slacker. It’s officially a fact. I am two months late with my day of hourly photos of Caleb. This is a bi-annual tradition started when Mason was 6 months. You might remember Mark’s posting of Mason’s day back in March. My posting, which I had every intention of posting a day or two later, has now arrived.
It’s kind of funny that the first time we do the hourly photo with both of our kiddos we happened to be in different cities. Mark and Mason were home in SB and Caleb and I took a little road trip up to Oakland to visit our friend Jules who had flown in from Nashville and was staying at our lovely pals Jaclyn and Michael’s place. We had a great few days! A surprisingly smooth and happy 6-7 hour car ride, and some exploring of the Bay Area. Oh, and not pictured, but some truly delicious food too!

8AM: Out for a rainy walk down the street. Some soft, chewy, garlicky focaccia bread at Arizmendi, followed by a Serendipitous stroll through the Lake Merritt farmer’s market (following pigeons, graffiti art and the colorful produce. He napped most of the time, and peeked out from the wrap underneath a borrowed hat the rest of the time.

9AM: Back at our weekend home and looking sleepy eyed.

10AM: Yep, those were definitely sleepy eyes. Mason would wake up mid sleep and SCREAM at the top of his lungs if his blanket ended up over his face when he was this age, but Caleb loves pulling the blanket up over his head, cozying down. I think this was a long nap. Jules had a meeting to go to that took a few hours and left me with some much adored downtime to eat some leftover thai food.

11AM: Right on the hour, I went upstairs to take this photo and cracked the door to little eyes peeking out from the covers.

12PM: Diaper changes, tickles and giggles.

1PM: Another nap and the trip out to do some spontaneous shopping.

2PM: And a shopping trip cut short because of big alligator tears.

3PM: Awake again and snuggled into a papasan chair, hanging out with mama and auntie Jules, briefly before she went to pick up Jaclyn from the airport.

4PM: Oh the days where naps happened in abundance! Another short snooze, as we sit on the floor and watch a Netflix show.

5PM: Up and ready to play.

6PM: As it started getting dark, this guy was practicing bounces and learning how to sit up on his own. Propped with pillows on the couch after a couple tumbles on the floor!

7PM: And the final snooze. Down for the count.

Our next Photo-An-Hour post will be in about 4 months. I can hardly believe that these two kiddos of ours will be 1 and 3 years old!
But as we ease into the summer, I will try and will time to slow down and spread out into some lazier and more spontaneous days.
