August has been my favourite month of the year so far. Now that all of the stress of relocating and having our baby boy is over, I feel that I’ve finally started to enjoy living in the moment.
Adjusting to life with two
Harry is now six weeks old, but it seems like he’s been part of our family forever. Just as people told me he would, our little man has slotted into our family perfectly. He’s far more content than Taylor was in these first weeks and life has pretty much continued as before (aside from the lack of sleep!)
Taylor adores him and loves helping me look after him. There’s been the odd moment where she’s got frustrated because I can’t tend to her every whim, but on the whole she’s been amazing and we’re all still in awe of our new addition.
I’ve loved having my sister and nephew back in the UK this month from Dubai. Taylor adores her big cousin and it’s so cute watching their relationship – even though they definitely have their not so cute moments (as below)!
They came to stay with us for three nights and we’ve had some great days out at local attractions including a visit to Thomas Land, Drayton Manor.
My parents also came to stay with us over the bank holiday weekend and we spent a lazy few days just enjoying the sunshine and relaxing in the garden. Bliss.
A garden (new baby/ new house!) party
With the arrival of Harry and moving into our new home, I thought it was about time we threw a little celebration. We had a garden party on 13th of the month with friends and family and luckily the sun stayed out for us.
Friends stayed with us over the duration of the weekend and it was a great opportunity for them to meet Harry. It was also a great opportunity for me let my hair down and have a few drinks whilst the hubby grafted away on the barbecue!
The kids enjoyed a bouncy castle, ball pit and Taylor’s new trampoline and we finally got some family photos which I’ll treasure forever.
We’re now starting to plan forthcoming projects on the house, starting with our new kitchen. We’re planning to knock through to the adjoining room to create one big kitchen/dining/lounging area. We haven’t finalised the details yet, but we’re set on going for a super modern finish with bi-fold doors leading to our garden. Watch this space!
I hope you all had a fabulous August! Can you believe it’s September already?!
