Siblings (June 2016)

IMG_20160607_135838

June, as I’ve probably already mentioned, has been such a great month for us. It has given us lots of opportunities to spend time as a family and even more time for my little ones to bond (if that’s even possible!?) They were so great together on holiday and I felt like they have both come back acting that little bit older. They still absolutely adore one another and K is still utterly besotted with her baby brother. Everytime a person paid attention to D on holiday, K was still very quick to go up to that person and remind them that is was HER baby brother. I’m still waiting for the novelty of him to wear off on her but it doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Not that I’m complaining at all. There is something so beautiful about watching your kids together. The way K plays with D and the way they laugh together literally makes me the happiest person alive. There’s not much else to comment on their relationship this month as it’s still as strong as ever so for now, I will leave you with pictures to sum up my babies lives together this month. My daughter, my son – My strong bonded siblings.

Me and Mine (February 2016)

So, I’m a day late in posting this but the picture was took yesterday. On a leap year! Happy leap year for yesterday everyone! February has been a busy month for us with K starting nursery and trying to adjust in to a routine on a Wednesday with that and illness has hit this household more than once for some of us plus having the joys of a teething baby. It’s a month that has really kept us on our toes. I’m hoping March brings us a quieter, less busy time where we can have time to relax – Something I doubt as Easter is just around the corner. I do love when February and March come, it’s a sign that Spring is well on its way. Everything seems more cheery, the weather seems to be improving slightly and everything around us seems to be “waking up” from its winter sleep. I am loving that the Daffodils are in bloom they are by far my favourite flower, they are so sunny and bright. They instantly cheer me up when I see them.

February has seen us do quite a few fun family things. I took K to her first ever cinema showing –  Hotel Transylvania 2 which was on a Saturday morning as part of the kids club. I was a bit nervous on how she was going to react as she hates dark spaces, she hates loud noises and she can’t sit still for longer than 10 minutes…but she absolutely loved it!! She was so good and sat on my knee the whole length of the film (which is quite a task for a 2 year old). It was lovely to see her giggling along to the funny bits in the film whilst she munched on her popcorn and sweets (at 10:30am!!). I was so pleased that she had so much fun and I can’t wait to take her again. We’ve also took both K and D swimming a couple of times and this weekend (that has just gone) we visited The Deep in Hull. A large aquarium. We’ve been before a few times but K was a lot younger. She really enjoyed it this time and could really appreciate it for what it was. We had an absolute blast.

The photos this month really do make me giggle. I was supposed to take them at the weekend but we had such a busy time that we just didn’t get chance to do them. So last night saw us frantically setting the camera up in our house to take some pictures before February was over. Notice that both my children are in their PJs ready for bed! It had been an eventful teatime as it usually is, so we had to quickly clean the pair of them up and make them look semi presentable! Ah the joys of parenthood, hey!?

This month we are loving…

That’s it for me this month. I’m really looking forward to March and I’m excited to see what the next month brings us.
