E at 9 months

By on March 15, 2017

Last week, E turned 9 months old. The biggest change this month is that she is on the move. Not crawling around on her hands and knees but dragging herself around on her belly. She’s getting faster at using her arms to pull herself along, though. She does get up on all fours (and rocks […]

Home life project March

By on March 6, 2017

This month, I am much happier with my collection of photos than I was for last month’s home life project. I love the colours and light in all these photos. Saturday was a lovely sunny day here in Cheshire so I was keen to go out somewhere. We had a quiet morning at home and […]

E at 8 months 

By on February 13, 2017

E turned 8 months last week and is really developing fast so I thought it was time for another update (bad blogger, I haven’t done a full update since her 2-month update). Weight She was weighed just before she turned 8 months and she is still just below the 25th percentile on the growth charts. […]

Home life project January

By on January 9, 2017

I’ve enjoyed photography for many years now but since E was born in June, I have used my “big” camera (a canon 400d) a lot less. With all the things that we take out for the day with two young children, I rarely want to take my DSLR too. I taught myself to shoot manually […]

What matters to me?

By on January 4, 2017

Happy New Year. I’m sure you are all sick of reading about new years resolutions by now but I wanted to write this post to remind myself what is important to me. I’m not one for making new years resolutions. Who wants to start a diet in January when it’s cold and the house is […]

A look back at 2016

By on December 31, 2016

2016 was the year our family became complete. We always wanted two children and this year we were lucky enough to have the tiny ladybird join our family. In many ways, she is so similar to her big sister but in others, she is completely different. We have spent the last 6 months getting to […]
