We don't have a car, so I've done a lot of walking with Dylan this past year—either to keep from going stir-crazy, get him to nap, run errands, visit friends, or some combination of all of the above. Lucky for me, we moved to a new neighborhood just before Dylan was born, so there has been plenty of new scenery to explore. And honestly, I think these wanderings may be some of my fondest memories from my first year as a mom. When we're out on a walk, I can forget about all the things that need to get done at home and just enjoy being with my baby.
When we're out I usually just shoot Instagram photos, though I'm trying to get in the habit of taking my Diana along with us. I love the light leaks, the soft focus, the quality of the colors, and—perhaps most important when you're toting a 15–20 pound child plus all the requisite baby gear—it weighs next to nothing.
It's fun to look through the full set at almost a year and see all the places we've been together. One of my favorite moments was stumbling upon the annular eclipse late in May. Though alas, we did miss the Endeavor flyover on Friday—we were out and about and apparently it flew by right behind us! Oh well, I'm not going to bemoan these things too much until Dylan is old enough to actually remember.
