8 pm // We finally eat. Lakshman throws all his food on the floor. Nandini asks for a roti and makes a taco of her food. Despite the last minute effort it is really delicious.
9 pm // Ryan takes two of the kids out for groceries. Avinash and I stay home and watch 'our show' (Once Upon a Time). It's pretty nice to hang out alone together. When Ryan gets back Lakshman jumps in my arms again. He sees a big stuffed monkey Avi was holding and begins laughing, rolling around and asking for the 'ball' to hold. He then grabs the monkeys face and gives it a big kiss. Ryan puts him to sleep in his crib while I enlist everyone's help tidying up before bed. Nandini puts away the blocks and Avinash very slowly cleans up legos. Then it's off to bed and one chapter of Lemony Snickets (again read by Ryan). Phew. Why is bedtime always so busy?
All my photos today are iPhone and edited with VSCOcam app again. I still love that app. I didn't take anything much after the sun set. My phone just doesn't do a good job in low light and neither does my camera really. I am happy to have the words down.
It is always a fun exercise to stop and reflect on life in a one day chunk once in a while. Looking back is even more fun. (Here are my previous posts on Day in the Life.) To see much Lucky has changed. To see our new house really becoming a home. To see how we still play a lot on the floor and still take evening walks. Lakshman got his feeding tube officially out last week and just started feeding therapy on Monday. We are so pleased with his progress.
Day in the life is a fun little photo taking and scrapbooking exercise I have done for a few years now, playing along with Ali Edwards. Not exactly sure how I'll scrap the photos this year. I often do a mini book. They are great to slip into a project life insert as well.
