Aran is growing up so fast I can’t believe how time flies.
Whenever I go to mom’s flat and he is there he wants to come home with me. It is only a few steps from their flat to my house so I usually take him and when he start to get tired I just take him back to my parents so that he can go to bed. But on Tuesday he wanted to go Ta-Ta every time he sees me.
We live in a Cul De Sac and it is very quiet during the day. Only the odd car turning around. So I took Aran for a short walk to the speed bump in the road and then turned around. He was very happy with that and when we got back to the house he wanted to go again. Unfortunately he had to wait a hour or so because my client arrived for her photo shoot.
When they left and he saw me again he lifted up his arms and wanted to go Ta-Ta again. I then decided okay let’s try walking to the shop, I had to buy a loaf of bread and off we went. He walked most of the way, I only carried him where the sidewalk was very uneven. While we were walking I tried to remember Armand and Lian’s first walk to the shop from my Parent’s old house… It was only 2 minutes walk to the shop but with them it took nearly 10 minutes to get there… Now my boys are big and go to the shop on their own.
When we got to the shop we got the bread and I took him to the chips to choose a packet. He went straight for the flings. He had one packet in his hand and then turned around put it down and took two packets. When we got to the till we had to scan him too. He did not want to give his chips to this strange lady and when she talked to him he just gave her a look that said are you talking to me?
I took some photo’s on my cellphone in the shop and on our way back home so excuse the quality of the photo’s.
When we got home he did not want to go back to Grandmother and Grandfather he just point his finger to the garage door so that I must open it. When I opened it he walked straight to the studio. Took the yellow cow and asked me to open his “njam-njam”.After eating the whole packet he went and sit on the floor and started laughing. That was my sign to get my camera for some fun shoots. Normally I will wipe his face but we never got to it.
Here are some of the photo’s I took of him….
