#MySundayPhoto – We Once Brought a Bump Here, Now a Baby

I almost feel like I’m close to repeating myself this week. Last week saw me talking about what it was like being back in Western and what had changed since the last time we took Isabelle there. This week? Well I’m reflecting on being back in Stratford, only the last time we were here, Isabelle was still in Rachel’s stomach.

She was around 8 months pregnant, and I really wanted to tick another thing off my bucket list before Isabelle was born. I also knew that it wouldn’t be long before doing something like this, just me and Rachel, would be a very rare thing.

So we came up to Stratford, the home of Shakespeare, to watch Julius Ceaser in the very building pictured behind Isabelle and Rachel. For whatever reason, I had “watch a Shakespeare play” on my bucket list, and knew once we had a baby it would be a while before I’d have the chance to tick it off.

Not even a year ago we were here; two naive soon-to-be-parents mere weeks away from having their whole life changed forever. Now, we’re here with a ten month old, who’s discovering more and more about this world with every passing day. Even in this photo she’s trying to learn to stand and walk.

So much in life can change in a year. Heck, it doesn’t even take that long, and this photo shows that off to me in a pretty stark fashion.




I’m a 26 year old married father of one. I started blogging after suffering postnatal depression when Isabelle was born. These days I talk about much more than just that.

      Yeah, and I don’t think you realise until you find yourself in a place where you’ve been before.

      You’re telling me! She’ll be 18 and moving out before I know. Not that 18 year olds move out these days.

    How wonderful to be able to keep your memories on a blog, blogging wasn’t around when my children were growing and all my photos in albums are fading #pointshoot@_karendennis

    How lovely to go back (and so soon!). My daughter is four and a half now and I still have moments like this. I think it’s good to look back and see how much things have changed (and in another year or so changed again). #MySundayPhoto

      Yeah I guess from here on out we’ll always been having moments like this. And it’s only going to be more obvious as a lot of what we do gets captured on the blog.

    Beautiful capture and you are spot on so much can change in a year and having children really does hammer that home! Thank you for linking up to #pointshoot 📷

    It’s lovely to do some reflecting and I’m sure more memories were made. #MySundayPhoto
