Month of Firsts – April 2017

Here we are again, time to round up all of your “firsts” for another month.  I started this series of posts because I have a type of epilepsy that affects my short term memory.  Quite simply if I don’t write it down I forget it.  I don’t want to forget the moments that have brought a smile to my face, those that pulled at my heart strings and even those that left me wanting to rip my hair out in frustration.  So, Harry this is what – I can remember – you got up to in April.

He Said What – Part 2

One of the things about young children is that they say what they see.  It is all said with innocence and not ignorance – “out of the mouths of babes” and all that – but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been times when I want the floor to come up and eat me.  Unfortunately my child doesn’t come with a volume control switch and when he wants to draw my attention to something he usually points at it or – even worse – he runs over to stand right next to Read on…

Month of Firsts – December 2016

Here we are again, time to round up all of your “firsts” for another month.  I know I am a little behind on posting these – as I have been for the last few months – so there may be some things I have forgotten.  In fact the eagle-eyed might have noticed that I have skipped November completely.  I started this series of posts because I have epilepsy and it affects my short term memory so it is only me that misses out in the long run, as things you did that made me laugh Read on…

Month of Firsts – October 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started because I was struggling to keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I love looking back and reading what we got up to as it brings the memories flooding right back.  However, of late I have been a little tardy with these posts.  I am so not up to date with what you have been up to – hence this post being written in Feb – but it highlights to me just how important it is Read on…

Month of Firsts – September 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started so that I could keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I am late with posting September’s update, but I doubt I will ever forget this month, as this one has been pretty significant.  So, Harry this is what happened in September: Started school – Let’s start with the main one shall we.  School. A milestone that seemed ages away and yet here we are already.  You only do mornings, but that doesn’t matter, you are still in school.  Read on…

Month of Firsts – August 2016

Another month and another instalment of Month of Firsts. The series of posts I started because I was struggling to keep track of what you did and when you did it.  I have to say that August has to be my favourite so far.   Whether it was more poignant because it is the month before you started pre-school or perhaps it was just because we had such a fun family holiday, fitting so much in to it.  I honestly can’t put my finger on it.  It could well have been both.  So, Harry this is what we got up to Read on…

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…
