I posted a photo of this to Instagram but had to grab a photo with my “big” camera when I got out of the shower of my little shower buddy. Errol is at work more often than not when I am trying to shower and so I’ve had to become resourceful about getting things done otherwise I’d probably never shower and start getting around with baby vomit and vegemite stuck to me (who am I kidding? this already happens). Florin loves water and happily sits and splashes in his bucket while I wash and the sometimes draining feeling of never being alone is replaced with the sweetness of having this little face to look down at.

I can’t help but remember this same bucket holding a Peach and a Bear. Times like these are when I am infinitely grateful to earlier me for putting in the long hours and documenting so much of their childhoods. Having now worked professionally and been hired for some awesome jobs that I am proud of and that have given me such satisfaction, I still can’t think of any work that has been more important to me than documenting my own. It might not be “prestigious” but if my images of my children were my only body of work as a photographer I would still be the happiest.

    Go Florin! Go you! I’m not game enough to put my kid in a bucket…I’m too clumsy AND I can’t see in the shower anyway, because I wear glasses! I think my baby would love it, though! Thanks for sharing this gorgeous pic! Xo

Afloat.

This little floatie came in the mail from Germany when Priya was 3 months old and since then has helped each of our kiddos learn to swim. With his torso supported he kicks gently around the pool while I swim slowly behind him, admiring his chubby cheeks. He flaps his arms and kicks his legs so excitedly, the happiest little water baby I’ve seen.

    May I ask the name of that floatie? It is just perfect! I’d love to get one for my 6 month old. He loves the water!

    I had one of those too when I was just a little baby (I still even used it as a kid/toddler) – I’m from Austria by the way. But what worried me when I got older (and outgrew my floatie) was when my mum told me she’d never use one of these again since it apparently happened way too often that that whole thing turned upside down and the child stuck in it is suddenly upside down too – with no chance of being able to get out and his head out of the water (even as a toddler). Just thought I should mention that – although I’m most certain you have a good eye on all of your kids. :-) Love, Jay

      Oh my, that’s stressful but definitely as with ANY swimming aid children should never ever use them alone and even if I did tip ours upside down I’d still keep using them as I am always right there with them.

I really wanted to enter Florin in the Bonds baby search because ah, there’s something so Australian and sentimental to me about Bonds and this is as close as I am going to get to being a pageant parent (lol). He will be Bonds baby. Oh yes. Smile baby, pretty feet, a little more energy, wow the judges. Hahahahaha oh dear. Errol and I started first joking about entering our baby into it when Theo was little. For our overseas friends Bonds is a very well known Australian brand (that sadly is no longer made IN Australia) but has been dressing Aussie’s since 1929. I think it would be sort of excellent to tell Florin “You were a Bonds baby when you were little”. Since Vegemite is not running a baby search this is about as close as he can get to Aussie baby win.

In the end I decided not to use this image and entered this one instead. There’s only 30k+ entries, surely the judges won’t miss that cute little face? Hahahaha <3

    Thank you so much :) in case when Florin gets older and he’s looking for an older girl – she likes long walks on the beach and kittens – loves to smell flowers and sometimes eats her own boogers :)
