21/52 Oh, I do love a day spent in the woods. Both of this week’s photos were taken yesterday whilst we were exploring Stockhill Woods and to be honest I hadn’t really taken many photos the rest of the week so I’m glad we had a good day out. Our whole household came down with stinking colds but it really hit Athena the hardest as she’s been pretty lucky and never really had a cold before. She doesn’t sleep well at the best of times but she was up countless times during the night and just miserable during the day.…

I haven’t been very good recently at sharing our little adventures on here. I usually manage to share a picture or two on Instagram but for some reason I’ve been finding it difficult to sit down and write about them. It might be something to do with my littlest still refusing to sleep more than two hours at a time day or night but I am determined to make an effort to start doing these posts more regularly again as these are the posts that I’m going to want to reread, to look through the photos when my children are…

I think that this month has been my very favourite as a mother of two. I can’t put my finger on exactly why that is but I think it’s just a combination of the girls both getting a little older and Athena starting walking. I’m not sure, but the girls have been undeniably cute together. In fact I think this month’s photos sum up things at the moment. These photos were taken on our recent trip to Folly Farm in Wales. Athena was in the pushchair most of the day but since it was quiet we let her get out…

20/52 Wow, the first time all month that I’ve managed to get one of these posts up on time. To be honest I think it’s just because I couldn’t wait to share these photos as I love them both so much. Both photos this week were taken on our trip down to visit family in Dorset and we were so lucky with the weather, it certainly made me miss living by the sea. I can’t believe how big both Lyra and Athena are getting. Lyra has certainly developed her own sense of style in the past few weeks and it…

18/52 19/52 Once again I’m playing catch up with these posts! I seem to be constantly behind this year but I’m determined not to miss a week out as I have grand plans of turning these portraits into photo books for the girls. I’m also cheating a little as all of these pictures are from our recent trip to Wales but the first ones were taken at the beginning and the second ones at the end. We managed to fit in so many adventures into a week away and the girls both seemed to grow up quite a bit whilst…

As usual it feels like only yesterday that I was writing March’s Me and Mine and here we are already at the end of April. If the year could slow down a little bit that would be great especially since we’re entering the last month before Athena turns one and I’ll no longer have any babies in the house! The big news for April in our little family was that Lyra turned three. Easter Monday fell on her birthday this year so we had a lovely long weekend to celebrate our biggest little one. This was the first year that…

*Collaborative Post* Anyone who has followed this blog for any length of time will know that we love being outdoors. I definitely subscribe to the whole ‘no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing’ mentality and so despite the cold and the wet over the winter we’ve still spent a lot of time outside. But. And this is a big but. Sometimes one or all of us just isn’t feeling it. Sometimes we just want to stay in our pyjamas, curl up on the sofa and watch something together. Or we have a spare hour and Lyra is craving…

17/52 Well, of course the big news of this week is that I am now the mother of a three year old! We had a pretty relaxed long weekend of celebrating as a family filled with presents, balloons, cake, and chocolate. I took so many photos of Lyra this week that I absolutely love that it was difficult to choose which one to share. Despite loving all of the ones I took of Lyra dressed as Peter Pan I had to go with one from her actual birthday. Athena’s photo this week was taken the day after Lyra’s birthday when…
