Our Thursday photo #5

This week’s photo is of the girls enjoying the long awaited sunshine that seems to be gracing us with its presence! Yesterday was Libby’s birthday, so we left the bouncy castle up on the decking so that she could play on it again today. Of course, baby sister had to play on it with her too!  Lia has started smiling now but I suspect it will be a good few weeks before I can manage to catch a smile on camera! so for now I’m happy to have them looking pleased to be together.

Our Thursday Photo #4

We are finally arriving at that point with Lia where she goes through periods of being alert and looking around rather than just either feeding or sleeping. This makes life a little bit easier during the day, I am just about managing to keep going with Libby’s usual routine, just feeding Lia for a few minutes at a time and she is fitting in with what we’re doing. I’m finding the evenings really difficult, cooking tea whilst Lia screams and Libby tries to get my attention is difficult. Libby does help in the kitchen occasionally but it’s not always what…

Our Thursday Photo #3

Well Lia will be 3 weeks old on Saturday. This is hubby’s last full week off work and he and my dad have been working on our decking for most of the week, we’re hoping it will be finished by next Monday before he returns to work on Tuesday. This has meant that I’ve been coping with these two monsters by myself for most of the week. They have both been exceptionally well behaved, but it is still rather exhausting, particularly when I’m not getting much sleep. I can’t help but look forward to Lia getting a little bit older…

Our Thursday Photo #2

After a difficult start with Lia, things are getting much better this week for our family. We are all over the sickness bug now and Lia seems to have escaped it. Libby is back into her clubs that she does in the mornings now, and Lia came with her to both her singing group at the library and her ballet class this week. I was lucky enough to have my sister Emma to help out at both, but I think I’ll just about manage both of them on my own this week. Hubby is still off work, but he has been…

Our Thursday Photo #1

I took a lovely photo of our two girls together this morning and as it’s Lia’s first week, I thought it would be a nice thing to do every week to document them growing up together. So every Thursday, I intend to do a short blog post with a photo of the girls. This weeks photo was just taken sitting on the sofa straight after we’d got up this morning. Libby has been poorly the last few days so she’s not at her best, but she was delighted to be allowed to hold baby sister for a photo.  I really…
