Photos of the Week

Late again but here are my favourite photos/moments of the week. Actually as I am so late they are photos of the fortnight.

Give Samuel a wide open space and he will run around like crazy. He loves to be outside and is definitely at his happiest when he is.

When a trip to Pets at Home is as much fun as a day out. Samuel and Henry loved looking at the animals and fish.

You can’t tell from his face but Samuel loves his friend Evelyn and she adores him.

Autumn walk collecting leaves and feathers. Samuel loved picking things up and bringing them to me.

To Samuel you climb the wrong way up a slide then slide back down on your belly. If it makes him this happy who cares.

I will try and get more regular with my posts again.

Photos of the Week

Very late in posting this week but it’s been super busy. Here are my favourite pictures/moments from last week.

Our boy is walking now. He walks everywhere and with such skill. It seems to have happened so quickly but at the same time it feels like he has always been doing it.

Ha ha this photo! One baby not looking, one having a meltdown, one being her usual angelic self and one pulling a silly face. Not the perfect picture we had in mind but captures the moment beautifully.

On Monday it rained a lot and we got stuck in the car without coats. Samuel didn’t mind he loves being in the drivers seat, making brum noises and pushing all the buttons. He was fascinated by the rain and kept stopping to look out the window.

Samuel settles and falls to sleep on our bed at night then we move him to his own room. On Tuesday night he was just so hyper and had lots of fun bouncing on the bed instead of falling to sleep.

Finally got round to sorting out some of our cruise pics and this was one of them. Two gorgeous boys having the time of their lives. Just love it!

Photos of the Week

This week has been my first proper one back at work. Samuel has started with the childminder and we have begun to get into some sort of routine. I am also very excited as my Olympus Pen camera has finally been sent back to me after being away for repair for over a month.

Samuel was actually very good a pulling the blocks out on this giant Jenga game. I just had visions of the whole thing toppling down on him.

What I love about my job is being able to get creative. This was taken on one of our training days at the start of the week. We used natural materials to make a shelter for the dragons among other activities that the children might partake in during their Forest School sessions.

This sleeping pic was sent to me by the childminder on Samuels first day. I was so worried that he wouldn’t settle but I had nothing to worry about. Yes there were tears but they didn’t last and I know that it will get easier for both of us.

We went to our local nature reserve on Thursday with Samuels friend Seth and his Mummy. I love seeing Samuel interacting more with other children. The way they communicate with each other just melts my heart.

The way he looks at his Daddy! Daddy was number 1 on Friday as he went to collect Samuel from the childminders. Daddy also always does bath time. They listen to music and have the best time together. Although Samuel is a Mummy’s boy I can see that one day I’m not going to get a look in and it will be all about spending time with Daddy.

Photos of the Week

I take a lot of photographs and I don’t like to bombard social media with all of them so there are lots of pics that I love but don’t share. That’s one of the reasons why I am really enjoying doing these blog posts.

Here are just a few of my favourite photographs/moments from the last week.

Last Saturday we went to Tattershall Farm Park with my side of the family. It was a lovely day. The sun was shining and I just love seeing how Samuel and his cousin Henry interact with each other. Look at them here holding hands and walking so nicely with Nanna.

Samuel and I went to play at Nanna and Grandads house which of course meant getting in the sandpit. Samuel got wet through and covered in sand so we gave him a bowl bath. He loved it obviously.

Samuel and Henry again. This time they are watching the cars go past and waving to them. Two peas in a pod!

Samuel had the best nap when we went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park on Monday. Thankfully he didn’t miss too many of the animals as he slept during lunch. I don’t get many sleeping photos now as he prefers the room to be dark or he sleeps in the car so I just had to take a pic.

The sand fiend. Seriously he is obsessed. I think I have said that before but it’s true. Give the boy a sandpit and he is happy.

Playing football with Nanna. Of course Nanna is still in her heels. She once walked up the Heights of Abraham in Matlock in her heels.

There we go my weekly round up. See you next week!

Photos of the week

Here are some of the things we have been up to this week.

Samuels first sink bath. I love this in black and white especially because my Grandparents caravan is like something from the 70’s. Samuel loved it. I’m sure he could have stayed in there all night.

Mr chatterbox at it again telling Evvy a right tale. She clearly has no idea what has got him so animated but she entertains him anyway.

This is me as a toddler. My mum sent it to me as she said she could see a bit of Samuel in it. Lee said it’s because I look like a boy. Umm!!

Cheeky boy! He is obsessed with climbing up slides. He then lays on his tummy and slides back down legs first. He is such a daredevil and I hope he keeps his adventurous side.

When you live somewhere for most of your life you forget what a lovely place it can be. We had a nice walk round the castle grounds and down by the river. I think the sunshine helps make everything seem lovely.

I’m actually really enjoying doing these posts as I love looking through photos.

Photos of the week

I want to try and be a bit more active on my blog, so as well as other bits and pieces, each week I am going to post a few of my favourite photographs from that week. Ones that I haven't shared on Instagram. I know this probably is of no interest to anyone other than myself but I like that I will be able to look back on them.

Ha ha his hat in this picture! Trying to get him to keep his hat on can be a pain sometimes. Daddy put it on like this and he didn't seem to notice – too busy opening Birthday presents. We had such a lovely day celebrating Samuels 1st birthday.

I love this! I wonder what they are looking at? Samuel loves his Grandad and it was so nice having family time with Lee's side in Whitby.

Whitby Abbey – We walked so many steps to get up to the Abbey but we didn't actually go in. As you can probably tell this picture was taken from the top of a wall. Amazing views all round.

Completely windswept but so happy. Love being with my little family. Here we are on the beach at Whitby.

My poorly boy. Samuel was sick all over me twice. He is never sick. I felt so sad for him but I did enjoy the extra cuddles as all he wanted was his Mama.

So there we go. I take so many pictures I could have picked so many more but didn't want to completely bore you.
