All Things Jesse, Week 65 {Mamatography Photo Challenge}

Luschka from Diary of a First Child is hosting a fabulous 366 photo-a-day challenge where I get to document our day-to-day life. I am so enjoying taking part in this challenge, and I love that I get to share all my photos with you. Inspired by Melissa of Vibrant Wanderings with her What's New Babe? posts, I have decided to include all updates on Jesse's development and all his cute characteristics in one post.

We spent the afternoon on the beach! My dad had to go to a coastal town for an appointment, and we decided we would join him and spend the afternoon on the beach. It was a scorching hot day and Jesse had great fun in swimming in the sea. He also tried to join in with a couple of teenagers playing with a ball and tried to walk up and touch everyone with his sandy hands. Needless to say, I spoke to everyone on the beach that day... impossible to be shy with a toddler!

We joined my gran in house-sitting my aunts house on a farm. being in a different house, that is not toddler proof was absolutely exhausting. I spent the entire time watching Jess and making sure he didn't open the glasses cabinet etc. He still managed to eat cat food, spill a container of rice everywhere and spend most of the weekend covered in mud. Plus, Jesse's nappies wouldn't come clean in my aunts washing machine - disaster! All in all, I was happy to be home at the end of the weekend.

Jesse wasn't happy away from home either. He missed his playmate, Sasha, (his puppy) and didn't really know what to do with himself. Both of us thrive under routine and were totally thrown by the change in environment. Or maybe it was just that I was thrown, and he picked up on that vibe.

A favourite activity is playing with stickers. Jesse likes to stick them to himself, stick them on the walls, stick them on the dog and thinks its really funny when he sticks them on me.

This child has so many different facial expressions, I wish I could capture them all with the camera. Here he is posing, for some reason. This is his thoughtful look, lol.

My fathers birthday, he turned 50! Happy birthday to a wonderful father. My dad's is one of the nicest people I know, and has enviable morals and values. I am so grateful Jesse gets to grow up with him as a role model. Here is his cake, its green because, you know, he's a boy...

  1. Jesse looks positively jubilant in that picture with the stickers! Such a great face, as they all are. It sounds like you two had a very busy week - I can understand why you would be happy to have found your routine again. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos!

  2. A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E! I could just eat him all up! lol at the cat food! Toddlers are mischievous but you certainly can't be bored around them !

  3. Your environment looks so great. And he is so expressive.

  4. Love the last picture! It is nice to get away from home, for a change, but the best part IS returning back home.

    1. It definitely is :) Thanks for visiting Cheryl!

  5. He really is a gorgeous child... I might have to figure out some sort of labolla with you ;)


I love comments! Thank you for making me smile! :)
