This month has been a whirlwind of a month that I just can’t believe is over. This month saw LP start preschool and ever since we have had our week’s ruled by drop offs and pick ups. As Dave works shifts and one of my working days changes from week to week we have never really had a week/weekend routine before so having a new weekday routine is taking some getting used to.
This month has also seen LP’s best friend turn three and welcome a new little sister into the world – LP and Little Man have another gorgeous playmate! The newborn cuddles are amazing – and that baby smell! I don’t think I will ever forget that smell.
We have spent a big part of this month decorating our bedroom and collecting new furniture and bits and pieces for it. It’s not quite complete yet but very, very nearly. Next step will be to decorate Little Man’s bedroom into his big boy room at some point next year. For now, we are having a decorating break.
I met someone new this month too, my lovely Twitter chum Lauren who is expecting her first baby next year. It was lovely to meet, finally, talk babies and introduce her to the kids. We had a lovely lunch, a lovely day and will be meeting up again very soon!
That is pretty much our month. We haven’t really done a huge amount outside of work and preschool apart from an impromptu trip to Brighton but it’s been good to have a month of settling into our new routine and I’m hoping October sees us do more as a family.
This month’s photo was taken yesterday, the last opportunity we had to take a photo! Dave’s just got in from work, the kids are having the afternoon milk and snacks and I am in jogger bottoms and a jumper – slouchy around the house clothes! This is us on a usual afternoon, relaxing, playing and not bothering much.
