These Moments

It was two weeks yesterday since we welcomed our dear wee man Max into the world.
Do I remember much of the past two weeks? Ah, nope.

But that's ok - it's a good thing my husband is quite diligent in taking photos when I don't remember to. It means I am able to look back on the day and weeks gone by and recall the moments we have shared together as a new family of five and with Granny and Pop during their stay with us.

Oh and there have been so many moments worth remembering.
And there have been just as many tantrums and challenges I wish I could forget.

Number One Son has taken to testing the boundaries. Again.
Why not hey?
I'm trusting this will all settle down in time - in the meantime we are just trying to keep our cool and understand what it is he is feeling about the new addition and the changes to his world that this brings.

Yesterday was a better day that's for sure.
Today.... not so good.

Oh well. A packet of peanut M&M's has just made me feel a whole lot better.

So now, here are some of the good moments we have had over the past two weeks.


Summer Evening Picnics.
It's been hotting up here nicely so we made the most of a warm summer's evening and took a picnic downstairs. 

Baby Wearing
The pictures say it all.

London Sunsets
Always rather spectacular.

A Teeny Tiny Baby
With Teeny Tiny Feet
And Teeny Tiny Hands that he likes to put between Mamma's breasts when feeding...

Making Friends With Creation
Luca has become 'The Bug Whisperer'.

Going for big walks, even when it's raining...

Enjoying Pub Meals
(and laying out one's hot chips on one's beloved Muzzy while they cool down)
Juice in one hand + chips in the other = Heaven.

An outing to Richmond
We walked along the banks of the River Thames to Petersham Nurseries which is a garden centre with a cafe and restaurant.
Very classy.
Very English.
The perfect spot for cakes and tea.
