No-Tech Sunday #2 - A Day with my Littleface


Since Seb came along, I never really spent any one on one time with Harvey. And I think it is important to spend time with each of my boys individually and give them 100% of my attention. So this No-Tech Sunday (Saturday) we decided to have a Mummy and Harvey Day. Yay!

It was great not to have to push around a stroller or carry around a baby change bag! Although I did carry a big bag as I needed to carry an extra coat and a "froggy" umbrella as I was unsure of the weather. All which was unnecessary as it was a beautiful day. But you just never know with the UK!

Harvey had a great time taking photos with "his" camera (somehow my Lumix G is now his). Taking photos of cars while on the bus ride. Ice cream van and boats by the river. He even took a photo of a church just to mix things up.

Today gave me an opportunity to really see how much my little man has changed and grown. He isn't my chubby cheeked little baby anymore. He is so chatty now and the stories that he comes up with! And it is just nice to get out for the day without having to worry about routine, dishes, dinners, nap times. I could just concentrate being with my boy. There will definitely be more Mummy & Harvey Days ahead! I really recommend it!

There are a few photos here as I got a bit camera-happy with my new iPhone 6. But if you make it to the end, you can see some of Harvey's photos. ;D

Smile!
Bus spotting.
A big boat!
Did I get the shot?
A quick run through the blossoms. Or as we call it SNOOOOW!
Love how he reviews his photos after taking them.
A well deserved cookie break.
Getting a bit of shopping in.
On way home and he couldn't stay awake any longer.
Shopping hoard: 1.Books 2.Plate and cup (Zara Home) 3. Mini pots (Anthropologie

Harvey's Gallery

I think he would make a great street photographer, with his, um, low perspective.

An arty shot.
Harvey loved this boat. There were a lot of boat photos taken.
Love how the people walk into the shot.
This one made me laugh.
Mummy's shoes need a clean!
No-Tech Sunday is a personal project about spending more quality time with my family. To take a break from technology like tv, phones and computers that seem to take over our everyday lives. As proof from today, our little ones grow up all too quickly and I don't want to miss a minute of it!

So please join me and try a No-Tech Sunday (or any day). You can be as flexible or strict as you like. The aim is to spend quality time with loved ones. And if you would like to share any photos or a post, please do! I would love to see!
