The Me and Mine Project // February 2018

February has been a lovely month for us as a family. We’ve spent lots of time getting to know our little Freddie, Olly celebrated his fifth birthday and we’ve enjoyed the February half-term break with day trips out and visits to family and friends. 

Family February Me and Mine

Here’s what we have enjoyed throughout February

This month, Mummy has;

  • received the photographs back from the newborn shoot we had with Kitty Belle Photography and absolutely adores them
  • really enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics
  • enjoyed getting to know Freddie and learning more about him and his cues for feeds, nappy changes and cuddles.
  • loved getting back in her car and getting back her independence
  • tried to do too much and got herself into a tizz (You can read my Mum fog post here)

This month, Olly has;

  • celebrated his fifth birthday and loves his new Lightning McQueen bike.
  • loved seeing the Giraffes and Elephants at Twycross Zoo for his birthday trip out
  • enjoyed lazy days of half-term seeing his cousin and meeting friends
  • declared he likes school!
  • visited the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham and loved seeing the big turtle

This month, Freddie has;

  • had his ultrasound appointment on his hips and his sacral dimple and been given the all clear which is fantastic news and we’re all so relieved.
  • has grown out of his newborn and first size clothing
  • began smiling at Mummy, Daddy and big brother Olly
  • put on lots of weight and is now 10lb 8oz.

This month, Daddy has;

  • received his mark for his fifth Masters module and passed with flying colours
  • gone back to work following his three weeks off with Mummy and Freddie
  • enjoyed the Winter Olympics coverage on the TV
  • enjoyed celebrating Olly’s birthday with family

February 2018 Me and Mine

We’ve had a lovely February and are now looking forward to the month of March with more family days out planned, hopefully the weather will improve and I can get out more with the pushchair and begin to lose the extra weight I appear to have put on.

Have a lovely March friends…x
