Late last year we had a bit of a near tragedy happen within our family. Our 3yr old took a bit of a dive out of a second story window and fell 3.6mtrs (head first) onto a concrete landing. It was scary and it was horrible, but God blessed our boy and although he was bruised badly (and a bit shaken up), he was OK.
It was a bit of a reality check. Needless to say, the weeks following the accident, there was ALOT of family time, lots of cuddles and lots of prayers of thanks giving. Beautiful friends and family showered us with love and we just felt so blessed that we still had our little boy with us.
A couple of weeks later, we had a client shoot postpone on the most glorious afternoon ever! We decided to take the opportunity to go and play with our boys. Master 3 reminded us of our promise to take some photos of him flying… I reminded him that his face was still a bit bruised, and asked if he wanted to wait until his bruise had gone away. (He had been quite self conscious of it). He smiled and said “No, cause I can show people the photos and say “That’s my bruise!”” Haha such a boy!
We love building fun things out of cardboard together to play with (can’t beat a cardboard box for entertainment right?!). Our little guy has been right into “biplanes” for a while, so we decided to get crafty and make one together. He was so over-the-moon with our creation, and so very chuffed with his painting and sticking efforts, and said we needed to take a photo of him “flying in his plane”.
So our impromptu photoshoot turned out so fun! We pretty much role-played the whole time, which I think comes across in our little guys expressions. Bub is kinda just like “what are we doing?” Which we found very funny and we enjoyed coming up with captions for the photos to tell a story when we viewed them at home. For days after the shoot, master 3 was telling everyone he came in contact with that he flew his plane, all by himself (he was surprised and extremely excited when he saw the photos, and we could see his brain ticking over as he tried to make sense of the “flying” photos:)
Hmmmm we just can’t seem to get this thing started…
So we were not quite dressed for a family photo… but I thought I would share anyway;) I love the expression on bubs face- I’m pretty sure he thinks we are all mad!
I might as well add a couple of “behind the scenes” photos too:) Oh how we love these boys!
