Final Approach

Pervasive hum and whine and shifting attitudes. Electric motor sounds of wheels coming out and chatter in the background. Low light. A bit fuzzy in the distance with my reading glasses on. White and green fasten seat belt. Thin blue over the aisle.

Cabin crew “take your seats for landing”. Whir of flaps. And to left, my wife and son, milking to control the pressure and more attitude shift landing in bad weather. Grandmother waiting.

Last landing at the old terminal of my own youth. I’m bringing home my son.

A long Hello. Picture update

These were shot at 2.8 at full tele 1/50 of a second and flash allowed for ISO125 with the camera upside down so the flash is as close to the water as possible.

Took a while to get comfy with mummy. Stayed in quite a while and no crying when coming out!

Edgar Speaks his Name

At 11 weeks and two days my son Edgar speaks his name! (his three month birthday is two weeks away…)

Super-proud mom and dad!!!

He has previously mumbled ‘I Love You’, sounding more like ‘love you’ so he is learning to mimic and also what parents expect him to mimic. It as his great aunt who made the name breakthrough though.
