Siblings // April 2017

Wow – the weather has been AMAZING so far this April! We’ve been to the beach, had a BBQ and have eaten outside on more than one occasion! Bliss! These photos were taken during the first weekend of April, when we decided to have Sunday dinner outside for the first time this year at my in-laws house. The kids had a fun game of ‘Plop Bucket’ to stop H-Bear throwing stones and pebbles into the pond. It’s a game that’s been in Nick’s family for a few  ...

H-Bear // 21 months

What a quick month… and, consequently, this won’t be the longest update in the world! The love of the wilderness still continues for H-Bear, and we have had some beautiful adventures this month.

H-Bear Updates, Motherhood

Motherhood // Where will you go?

We’re currently on the hunt for a nursery for H-Bear. He’s getting to the age where he’d really benefit from some independent socialising with children his own age, without me around, for a day a week. I could also do with some more work time. But H-Bear is a wild thing. His natural habit is the woods, or a big open space. And the nurseries in our area seem to have small, confining rooms, which lack in outside areas. They feel forced. And I think he would feel shut-in.

H-Bear // 20 months

H-Bear is now the age Busby was when Nick and I got married! How crazy is that?! And you know what else? He would have been an, um, interesting element at the wedding (Busby was a dream…) How can two children be so different? H loves nothing more than a big open space, with puddles, and unlimited time to explore. I’ve written about having to take him out for a walk every day previously, and that still applies! We’re now on recognisable terms with the Groundskeeper of the  ...
