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 – March 2016

It’s that time of the month again when I round-up all the firsts that we have achieved in the month – warts and all.  It was 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.  All moments worth sharing and keeping for future reading.  It’s been a quieter month than most, but I think that’s more my fault for failing to write things down because I Read on…

Month of Firsts – February 2016

It’s that time of the month again when I round-up all the firsts that we have achieved in the month – warts and all.  I can’t believe that another month has passed.  Time is flying by.  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.  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…

Month of Firsts – Sept 2015

I started this series of posts a few months ago because I was struggling to remember all the things my little man had done.  He is growing up so fast and learning new things at an alarming speed that it is hard to keep up with all the changes.  Despite re-assuring myself I wouldn’t forget the small things, I have to concede that it is far easier said than done.  I have therefore decided to keep a list of all his “1st’s”.  It seems like only 2 seconds ago that I wrote about August and yet Harry, here is Read on…

Month of Firsts – August 2015

I started this series of posts a few months ago because I was struggling to remember all of the things my little man was doing.  He is growing up so fast and learning new things at an alarming speed that it is hard to keep up with him.   The days are blurring in to each other.  Despite re-assuring myself I was bound not to forget such special moments I have to concede that it is far easier said than done.  I have therefore decided to keep a list of all his “1st’s”. Harry, this is what you did for the 1st time in August 2015: Went to your Read on…

Month of Firsts – July 2015

Time goes by so quickly that I find it useful to jot down all the things that my little cheeky monkey did for the first time during the month.  I call it my Month of 1st’s.  I want this to be something I can look back on to remind myself of major milestones and tender moments.  I also can’t believe how quickly time is passing and how much he is growing up.  Here is what happened for the first time in July. Finger painting – I am not the arty type, so in Read on…
