I’m all caught up with these finally! Yey. This little lady has so much personality now, it’s such a joy to see. She can sit up all by herself and even plays with toys whilst doing so but I still like to be nearby to catch her as she can topple when distracted or overexcited. She has not lost any of her determination and if she sees something she wants which is out of her reach she will throw herself forward to try and grab it. Lyra has definitely become more clingy recently and will often whine or grumble…

Still playing catch up with these… (photos were taken on the right week, I’m just being useless at posting them)

Playing catch up with these! They were taken on the right weeks but I was just a little slow in posting them. I have the 20 and 21 week pictures to post as well. Oops!

This is what our current bath set up looks like. We have had so many problems getting Lyra to enjoy a bath once she outgrew her baby bath. She was reasonably happy taking a bath with one of us but sometimes I really don’t want to run the whole bath and she still freaked a little. So, this is how we do it at the moment. I’m hoping we can rid of the towel in the bottom soon and replace it with a bath mat as it is not fun having a sopping wet towel at the end. It may…

The top left photo was taken the first year we were together, the next three were randomly taken throughout the years and the bottom left was whilst I was pregnant.

Taking a photo under this tree is hands down the best tradition Matt and I ever started. (bottom left taken by the talented Naomi Jane Photography)

I love weekends! This weekend we headed to Dyrham Park, to have a little wander and to introduce Lyra to one of favourite places. This photo makes me so happy. A picture of my family in one of my favourite places. Taking a photo under this tree became a little tradition for Matt and I in our first year of dating and to see Lyra now included brings such a smile to my face. After taking our traditional tree photo we snapped a few more of our little family under the tree that has become so special to us. We…

I know I always go on about it but I really, truly love Lyra’s eye. Such a perfect copy of her Daddy’s, every time I look at them my love grows. It’s like her eyes are a constant reminder of the love I share with Matt and that colour will always shout home to me. Although I know she’d be beautiful no matter the colour of her eyes I selfishly hope they don’t change.
