Me and Mine | April

It’s that time of the month again when I go on about how quickly time has sped by but honestly this month it really has. We are now just a few weeks away from meeting our second child and that is just crazy to me! I wanted some lovely family photos taken whilst we were in London for Lyra’s birthday but we were having too much fun and I just forgot to take any. So instead we took a couple of pictures when we were walking through the woods last weekend.

Lyra is definitely not feeling the family photos at the moment. To be honest she doesn’t really like to stay still for too long especially when she’s surrounded by dirt and sticks. We cannot compete with that! I feel a little emotional looking at these photos. If baby comes on time it will be here by the end of May and so these could be our last photos of a family of three. I’m trying not to place too much emphasis on the due date because Lyra was eleven days late and if this baby follows suit then it will be a June baby but even knowing that these photos could potentially be the last ones makes me feel a little sentimental. They’re not the best photos by any means but they capture our little family at this very moment, right on the edge of something new.

So here’s to May. I wonder if next month’s photos will be of us as a family of three or four…

    Ah! What an exciting month you have ahead! I remember feeling similarly before my second was born… but your heart just grows and grows and you can't imagine that you were ever complete without your new arrival! Lovely pictures of the 3/4 of you! And yes… sticks, mud and dirt will always win in our house too!

      Thank you. I am so, so excited to meet this little one. Just wish I knew when they were going to arrive! x

    Oh wow what an exciting month (and a bit) you have ahead of you! I know what you mean about not getting too excited ahead of time – mine were 15 days, 12 days and 9 days late respectively!!

      Thanks! Yeah, I can't help but hope that baby will come near it's due date but I know that it's unlikely! At least I know that the latest will be around the beginning of June, I'm trying to focus on that. x
