How can January be finished with? It feels like only yesterday that we were putting up the Christmas tree…maybe life speeds up with each child you have?
Life With…The House
Our January has been well and truly over shadowed by never ending home renovations. Our lives have been turned upside down this month, as we crammed ourselves into an undecorated living room full with stacks of boxes. We have just about survived off M&S microwave meals (I tell myself they aren’t as bad) and we are all pretty sick of it. We’re washing bottles in a bathroom sink and have the steriliser on our bedroom floor. I keep telling myself it’ll be so worth it…I can’t wait to show you!
Life With…The Family
January also saw MM turn 4 months old….how did that happen?! Each week I can’t believe how much bigger she is getting and we are really getting to know each other now. She just weighed in at 12lb 12oz at her last set of immunisations. I’ve heard mixed reports of how jabs have affected babies. Munch never really bothered and we didn’t noticed any difference, but MM…well, lets just say I’m glad that they’re over with until she’s 1 year old!
The girls are growing closer than ever. All the best smiles are saved for her big sis and it’s the sweetest thing to witness. I’m in awe every time I see them interact and it just takes my breath away. I can’t wait to see how their bond develops as MM is able to take part a bit more.
We cursed at the weather all month. It was so dark, damp and cold….pretty impossible for photo taking. So we all ran out the first dry morning we had, after gymnastics class. As you can see, it was pretty nippy and the fog was descending on us as we were snapping. I’m sure we’ll become a bit more slick at the family photo over the coming year.
So, that’s January…February should bring with it a completed house, visits from great friends and school news…Bring it on!
