I feel like I don’t write about my little ones as much, I’ve gotten out of the habit of writing about our days and milestones which is crazy because they are reasons that I started my blog. Capturing these special moments and watching them grow. As always, life is super busy, I am not sure there will ever be a point when it wont be, especially whilst they are still so little and so dependant on us.
Autumn has been a flurry of back to school and new routines and of course a very special trip to DisneyLand Paris. We are now already in a new season and hurtling towards a new year – I remember last Christmas so vividly it is hard to believe that it was a year ago.
Autumn seen my Meme turn 8. Since starting juniors she does seem so much older an independent. She has such sensible head on her shoulders and I do wish she would enjoy the moment a little more. She loves being around me and I love that. She is such a lovely big sister but I am noticing that she likes to spend time on her own a little more, reading or chilling, much to Harri’s disappointment.
Harri has started year one and after a little encouragement started dancing and rainbows which she adores. She is so much more outgoing than Meme but is really shy and reluctant starting new things. I know she is still only young and this will hopefully change. She loves to play and I know I say this often but she is such a ray of sunshine.
Alfie is still his crazy self – so much fun though! He runs around the house usually bumping into something along the way. His speech is coming on so well and it’s lovely to hear his little voice. I have noticed he is starting to play more and loves wheeling little cars around the house. We still have tantrums but not as many which is a relief oh and he is a sleeper often having two hours naps every day!!!
I started the new school year with a few little resolutions which were really going well until about a month ago. Me and Alf spend the end of November full of cold resulting in jobs slipping and falling back into my disorganised ways. I will get there though.
I am sorry to see the back of Autumn – it’s definitely my favourite season – I have so many beautiful captures and lots of memories made, naturally we have had the usual upsets. Friend fall outs, nasty germs and of course disappointments. I try to explain to Meme that we all get disappointed at times and it’s ok to feel sad for a moment, but it is hard seeing them upset – yet it is all part of growing up.
So before we get caught up in all of the festive posts here are some of my favourite Autumn moments:
