We are finally at the end of January, which means it is time for our first post for Dear Beautiful family photo project…Me and Mine Project
We enjoyed taking part in The Sibling Project and have been looking forward to The Me and Mine Project as we had to try and get a family photo, rather then just the kids together.
As I mentioned in my previous Sibling Project post, these challenges are fantastic for you t o make the effort to get a photo. Wether you go out for the day or even take a selfie at home, getting a family photo to cherish is great. You don’t always have the time or think of taking a group photo. But these challenges make you do this.
We tried a picture at home, but Rowan was having none of this, so we went off for a wander round Lydiard Park. We took the scooters which I was also filming for a Day In The Life vlog post. Rowan is normally always in his buggy but he absolutely loved having the freedom on his 3 wheels.
Typically the weather turned whilst we was there and rain came. We only stayed for about an hour but had some chores at home to complete. We are going to do this again soon, and when the weather is nicer we will take a picnic and make a day of it. Normally we would take Bibi, but she has just started her first season and is not very happy about this, so she stayed at home in the warm for this adventure.
January has been a blur, the comedown from Christmas and getting back into routine has been tricky. Also with my birthday in the middle, we have been extremely busy. You can see what we have been up to in my latest upload Snapshots and Scenes above.
Josie has really changed in the last month and we have noticed her grow up dramatically. She has started taking a lot more responsibility and we have been getting great feedback from school about her behaviour. Last week she even received an award from her headteacher for doing work without being asked.
Rowan has also changed, he has really come on leaps and bounds speaking. He absolutely loved making our first Day in The Life vlog. Rowan has learnt to put his photo in the post box when leaving nursery and is still as OCD about tidying as ever. He has suddenly gone into the toddler phrase, and I am missing a baby around now. We won’t be having anymore though which I have been trying to come to the fact of this and how fast time flies way too fast.
I am looking forward to February and taking part in Me and Mine Project. We also have half term fun in the middle of February. We haven’t many plans for February apart from planning for the end of the month to start on decorating the children’s bedrooms. We have been luckily since moving end of 2016, that we had a blank canvas and Josie room is pink, so both bedrooms have been fine for the kids, but we really want to get these sorted for them over the next couple of months.
