the diary #07 ♥

We are starting another week in lockdown and while I am typing this, Sofia is having her afternoon nap so I am taking full advantage and writing a new blog post. When I started The Diary series, I wanted to be able to write down key moments and memories so I can look back in a few years time and see how much has changed or even stayed the same. This is certainly the case with Sofia, she is changing everyday and there are so many milestones that she hasn't even crossed paths with yet. On Sunday we hit a very big milestone, she finally saw snow for the first time! Of course I had to grab my tripod and take photos of our first day in the snow together. 
I am really not a fan of the cold weather but it was a lovely experience seeing her run around and we even attempted to make a snowman. Although she ate his grape hat, we had a really nice day and I'm so glad that even with lockdown, she got to enjoy the snow. We also fed the squirrels at the weekend and I can happily admit that I was terrified while Sofia kept grabbing my hand while trying to chase after them. I have actually bought a sketch pad and watercolour pencils to relax so I can relax in the evening and Sofia and I have started drawing together. I've started making a folder of our scribbles and drawings and I hope next year we can see how far she has come along. 
If lockdown has taught me anything, it is how quickly time goes by and I love capturing every moment that I can. Milestones aside, I spent this morning making Sofia boiled egg and toast, reading the children's book Buffy the Vampire Slayer, playing with her Barbie's and giving my room a tidy. After Sofia is asleep, I have been reading my Crime Monthly magazine, watching Season 1 of Desperate Housewives for the first time and I am getting into a pretty good workout routine late in the evenings. I am walking Kobi and Esse with my dad in the evenings as well and it is pretty calming, especially when I turn my heated blanket on before bed. The life of a party animal. How are you spending your time in lockdown? Are you obsessed with capturing memories like me? ♥
