Me&Mine August 2013

This month I really have left it to the last minute to get our August family snap...

We finally managed to assemble ourselves this evening just before giving the little lovely his bath and getting ready for bed.
This is our messy bedroom - a lot like the rest of our life...!

The end of August today also ends a difficult week for us..we have been busy doing lots of things, rushing about and getting a little bit stressed with each other.
It has been very warm and humid, and Tibs has been teething and getting up very early for some reason.
By the time we got round to taking this picture we were feeling tired, cross and grumpy.
(not the best time to have a family shot I thought!)

But just getting to sit down together for five minutes
to be a bit silly, to try and balance the camera and laugh at the wonky pictures; 
it broke all of that daft stress down. 
We were just us again. 
And having those five silly minutes together made us all feel better. 

So even though this is a very badly taken picture, it is now one of my favourites...

Our little family.

{This month}

Tibs has been...
 walking everywhere
reading about "Brum" cars
watching "up" and loving the balloons
doing very well at feeding himself
giving lots of "big loves"
playing on big wooden tractors
talking to trees
barking at every dog he sees

We have been enjoying lots of sunshine before the Summer ends..
Daddy has got a new job (!) and is addicted to "Dowton Abbey"
Mama has been taking lots of pictures and loving every day with her little man..

{The Out-Takes...}


The end of Summer...

I can't believe that tomorrow will be the first of September...
Although we (hopefully) have a few more sunny days to look forward to, 
we've come to the end of the summer..

This has been your first "proper" Summer. 
We have had such an amazing time with you.
And had so many adventures...

You have been to lots of new places and learnt so many things.
It has been a Summer of very hot days and you have loved paddling in the pool and playing in the sunshine.
You have caught the sun and spend lazy days sleeping in after all the running around..
We went on our first holiday together where you went around on your little trike and learned how to make all the sounds the animals make.
You have played at Grandmas with your Aunties and Uncles and had lots of raspberries from Grandma's allotment.
We have been on your first bike ride and had lots of ice-cream.
We celebrated your first birthday.
You have gone from crawling to standing to walking to running.
We have scooted home together
You have seen big trains, lots of fish, castles and talking trees...

We have had an amazing summer adventure with you.
Watching you grow and chasing you everywhere...
You make everything so exciting, so fun and so new.
Everything you do makes us smile..

Goodbye Summer 2013...

{The Ordinary Moments...}

This was taken last week while we were in the garden together...
It's my two boys looking at a big frog we found in the allotment.
Tibs was not really sure what to make of it and even resisted trying to squeeze it!
He loves looking at things with his daddy and his daddy loves showing him new things.

It really is the ordinary, everyday moments together that make life for us.
The simple things we do together.
They aren't always exciting but...I love them all.
