Sunshine in the Gallery

The theme in this weeks Gallery is Sunshine.

Here in the UK the sun finally came out. We’ve been waiting a looooong time. We’ve had a lot of rain. It’s been cold and it felt like we were stuck in one, long unpleasant season.
Then the sun came out, the temperature’s soared and people dug their sandals out again. So to celebrate, this week’s photography theme is: Sunshine.

Baby Z is a December baby. It had been snowing for a whole week and snowed about 3 weeks afterwards. It then rained and was murky for the next few months which meant he didn’t actually see proper sun till he was about 6 months old. Every time the sun makes an appearance he is instantly taken to the park to soak up some rays. He’ll actually bypass the swings completely and head straight for the grass to do this…


Run. Like mad, till he can’t run anymore. He’ll just keep running into the distance until he resembles a running dot.  Then stop and come running all the way back.  Then repeat it all over again!

Still, it’s his absolute favourite thing to do at the moment which beats trying to catch him throwing himself off the couch about 100 times a day.

      We’re lucky we have this directly opposite our house. He actually points out of the window every day to be taken.

    Rickets is becoming a real concern again. I like that he is liking some sun. I’m sure my daughter (oct birth) didn’t see sun proper for 6 months!

      Thats what I was really worried about, the lack of vitamin D. But he seems to be loving it which is great!

    Oh yes burning off energy is great thing to do! The sense of sunshine gives them a sense of freedom x

      I’m not sure what’ll happen once the sun disappears though, he’ll probably still want to run around it when its all muddy :S

    Awww, gorgeous photo. You just get the impression that he’d keep running and running until the field ran out. Fab! X

    • Notmyyearoff May 31, 2012 / 9:14 am

      I think he really would! He usually looks like that, a dot running off into the distance. Its only when I start shouting “byeeee, I’m goiiing!” that he’ll come running back!

    Its greta being outdoors, my girls love nothing more than being able to run around freely 😉

    • Notmyyearoff May 31, 2012 / 9:16 am

    Wow it’s fab that he keeps on running! Good for you also because it must wear him out! X

      Oh yes!! The OH once suggested (at 9pm one night when he wasn’t sleeping!) that we take him for a run. I said no 🙂

    They really do take off once they find their feet. I can imagine the big open space is heaven for him. Such a little darling!

    • Notmyyearoff May 31, 2012 / 9:15 am

      He just loves it. I think we’ll have to buy a house with a massive field at the back!

    Kids know how to enjoy things best, don’t they?

      They really do, so simple but he could go for hours I think!
