Since we were out on lots of walks whilst we were on holiday the baby carriers came in very useful. We’d been putting off using the Ergo as Lyra hadn’t seemed very happy in it a few weeks ago. She seems to have gone through a growth spurt though so now her legs fit comfortably out and she loved it! We took the Moby as well though for when she really wanted to snuggle but the Ergo gave her the chance to look around and that suited our nosey little daughter. (Also looking at this I noticed that Lyra has…

I’ve finished going through all of my photos from our week away and as I was looking at them I realised something. I am very quick to take pictures of the good moments and a stranger looking at them would get a very distorted view of my life. We had a great time in Wales but it wasn’t without it’s bad moments. Lyra started the week by being extremely clingy and so, even though I had willing extra hands to help she only wanted me. I worried that I would never be able to relax although luckily Lyra settled in…

This week has been one of the toughest weeks so far but it’s also been so much fun, weird right?! Lyra has hit the four month sleep regression and as I was used to her sleeping right through the night for weeks it has really been a shock to me. She’s also fighting naps so has been pretty grumpy all day long. Combining that with bad weather has left us both less than happy. That being said when she has given in and napped during the day she is so much fun. She’s really enjoying sitting and she gets the…

  I’m so, so late in posting this but at least it’s up now. I’d hate to miss a week! This week has been all about Lyra learning to prop herself up and she seems so happy with herself about it. She can’t do it for long at the moment before she gets distracted, lifting an arm to reach out for something and causing her to topple over. She seems to enjoy the toppling over almost as much as the sitting at the moment (obviously only on the bed or something, we don’t let her topple on to a hard…

I really cannot believe how quickly the weeks are flying by now, I feel like we’ve picked up speed and I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’s sad that little newborn Lyra is now nothing but a memory but I love seeing her learning and experiencing new things. Lyra has become such a wriggler this past week. I’m not sure how she’s managing to move so much but she’s upside down when I wake up and check on her in her cot and within minutes she manages to wriggle off of her playmat. Lyra has also started wriggling…

  My grandparents came up to visit us last week and we took a short boat trip in Bath since the weather was so nice. Lyra loved it! She didn’t know where to look first especially since there were lots of other people on the boat as she loves looking at new faces. She spent a lot of time looking out of the window before deciding she was hungry and then falling asleep. It’s so fun to see Lyra experience new things, I love watching her watching everything.

These photos have been sat on my laptop for almost a week now. I’m finding it more and more difficult to sit down and go through my pictures to upload on here. I really want to keep it up though as I love having somewhere to document my family’s adventures. Also, how stinking cute are these two?! Matt is such an amazing Dad, he works hard all week to provide for us and then throws himself into family life as soon as he’s home. There really is no rest for him at the moment! I like to think we’re worth…

I’ve started to slack on putting these up but we have at least been taking the pictures each week, I’m determined to keep that up all year. These past two weeks have seen such a change in Lyra. She seems much more in control of her body and will no longer lie still on a blanket or the playmat, preferring instead to twist and turn. Lyra has yet to roll completely over but spends lots of time rolling on to each side and back, especially in her cot in the mornings. She’ll lie quietly rolling around in the morning, sucking…
