through his eyes


Now that the days are cooler my little guy and I have taken to wandering the neighbourhood a bit more frequently.  With no definite path in mind we stroll down footpaths, over walls and bridges, along tracks, around corners, through bush and across roads.  There are endless stops along the way.  He has an incessant need to pick up whatever crosses our path and never have we returned home empty pocketed.

So delighted he is with his world around him that he leaves no stone unturned.  We investigate every nook and cranny.  Seeing the world through his eyes is like seeing it all for the first time.  In his presence I am reminded to stop and really see.  It’s absolute magic!

Have you explored your neighbourhood lately?

So much fun! I love having the time to slow down, let the little ones take the lead and see where the day takes us. x

We call it a flanerie.....it's a french word that means to wander, to idle, to dawdle you get my drift...We say "let's flanerie the hood" Vic x

He is SO beautiful Tammi. I love the wonder in their little hearts and minds at this age. The world is their oyster... and so it should be. Enjoy those lovely wanderings for as long as you can xo

He is gorgeous! It is such a small window in time, I'm so glad you've got the opportunity to share it with him.

O-M-G. He is so ridiculously cute!! (As I've probably said too many times already...) Lovely to explore your neighbourhood, particularly with no plan in mind, love the idea. I *should* get out and about more with my two, especially now the bub is happier in the pram (and may even have a nap...) xx lucy (accidentally just posted this comment meant for you on tania's blog at ivynest... oops!)

So gorgeous! I love the way you have grouped your photos, and shown so many expressions and actions. You are a fabulous mama, and I will be following your footsteps (once this drizzle has stopped!) xx

He is just too gorgeous Tammi and I love this post. I love exploring the neighbourhood at this time of year and we have to be happy to do it oh so slowly with an inquisitve (or dawdling) youngster in tow don't we? Its a perfect way to slow down and have time to smile at the neighbours and find treasures and notice the beauty. Love it! x

The world through the eyes of children?... nothing better. Just tonight Sage reminded me to pause and watch the waterfall on our afternoon walk for just a little longer. Beautiful post x

Love this little boy, and we do love discovering our new environment. Walks are just so great to give life a little perspective. Sometimes being in the house too long makes our world small. So stepping out gives us a glimpse ofthe bigger picture. X

I have been drawn to getting out and about lately, just wandering. Not sure why. My kids usually whine when I suggest we all go for a walk - but once they are out they enjoy it. I remember a time when they were as curious as your little man. Do they lose that as they get older? Or maybe their curiosity is not as obvious to me now.

He is soooo gorgeous! I love their curiousity. It really does help you stay in the moment x
