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 – 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 – January 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.  So, Harry this is what you got up to in January: Pretended to be a Doctor You demonstrated your bedside manner 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…

Magic Moments 31/10/15

Three things happened this week that signified that summer has come to an end.  Firstly, our caravan came home.  I love our zaziban (H’s pronounces it this way), but I love it even more when it is pitched down the coast.  On our drive it just looks a little awkward and lost.  I am already counting down the time until March when we can site it again and enjoy our escapes away to the sea.  To cheer myself up I got my favourite photo from this summer made in to a 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…

Gardening with Grandad

Magic Moments 27/09/2015

The best bit of the week was when Gaga and Grandma popped over on the weekend to help tidy up the garden.  With all the nice weather our garden has just gone crazy so it was time to give everything a really good chop back and clear away any of the garden pots and toys that were beyond saving.  All of us were out there getting stuck in – including Harry. Gaga and Grandma really enjoy their gardening so they were thrilled that Harry was taking a very keen interest in Read on…
