Month of Firsts – July 2016

It’s that time again.  Time to reflect on last month and write-up all of the firsts that you achieved.  This was a series of posts I started because time was rushing by so quickly and I was losing track of what you did and when you did it.  I look at the ones from last year and love reading them and remembering all the things that made me laugh, frustrated me, and made me burst with pride.  Compared to other months this July was quite a quiet one.  But when I started this series I knew that some months Read on…

Month of Firsts – June 2016

I am so behind with these posts at the moment and that is just because so many things are changing and it is hard to keep up.  Which is why I am so glad that I started this series of posts to keep track of what you have done. If it wasn’t for photos I would struggle to remember everything.  So here we go, here is my warts and all round up of all your “firsts”.  So, Harry this is what you got up to in June: Chased bubbles around a field in nothing Read on…

Month of Firsts – May 2016

Another month over and it is time to review the good, the bad and the downright ugly from May.  You have certainly sent me to opposite ends of the emotional spectrum this month.  I guess it is just a consequence of you developing so quickly and being more aware of what is going on around you and how you can influence it.  And the flip side of that is how frustrated you get when you have no influence.  All are moments worth sharing and keeping for future reading.  So, Harry this is Read on…

Month of Firsts – April 2016

It is the start of a new month and time to reflect on the last one and write-up all of the firsts that we achieved.  Month of Firsts is a series of posts I started because I was struggling to keep track of what you did and when you did it.  Some of the things make me laugh, some frustrate me and others are just magical.  It is a warts and all account of the good, the bad and the ugly.  All moments worth sharing and keeping for future reading.  So, Harry this is what you got Read on…

Month of Firsts – December 2015

Back in mid-2015 I started a series of posts to document all the small “firsts” that my little man had completed during the month.  They didn’t have to be earth shattering, just fun things that I could look back on and that would make me smile on a grey day.  These would capture the good, the bad and the ugly moments. So far the ones that I have written have certainly ticked that box.  So, Harry, what have you been up to in December? Went on your first train ride, and it just happened Read on…

Month of Firsts – October 2015

I say it every month – where has the time gone?!  I am so glad that I started this series of posts, as there is no way that I would be able to keep track of all the new things my son got up to during the month.  Another one has come to a close, so without further ado here we go.  Harry, here are the things that you did for the first time in October. Asked me to “put the (r)oof down” every time we got in the car – we don’t have a convertible nor do we know any Read on…
