Me and Mine in January

Last year I saw so many beautiful posts at the end of each
month filled with family portraits for Dear Beautiful‘s Me and Mine
project. This year I knew I wanted to get involved as I can’t think of
any better way to document our family. I take so many photos of Lyra
everyday as well as lots of Lyra with Matt but one thing I really
struggle with is remembering to take photos with all of us in. And
that’s just silly because I know I’ll treasure every single family
picture for years to come and so this year I’m hoping that I can keep up
with these.

 Saying that, I almost failed the first month! Oops. To be fair, January marked the end of my maternity leave and with it the end of our days off together and so there weren’t many opportunities to get pictures together. Which, of course, is going to be a problem every month so I can tell already that I’ll have to be creative with these. I love the photo above but I just wish that Lyra was looking at the camera as well. I did manage to get a couple of other photos of us all together during our trip to Lacock this month. 
We’ve had a busy month of not much as we all get used to our new routine. Matt has taken to his days alone with Lyra so well, I’m really enjoying seeing their bond deepen. I’m getting used to being back at work and I must admit it is kind of nice to talk to adults for a change. And Lyra? Well, Lyra is changing every day. She is loving being on the move and is so much fun to be around at the moment.
We have a couple of exciting things planned for February and I’m already thinking of when I can take our Me and Mine picture next month!

    It's always Mummy behind the camera isn't it – like you I'm using #meandmine to ensure I get in the picture too!
