Wow! The months are really flying by since I became pregnant! So here we are in June… It’s going to be December before we know it, isn’t it? Then I’m going to be photographing three mini-Hardings! Eek!
I realised that I hadn’t taken any photos of these two in my in-laws gorgeous garden this year. Last year’s Siblings seemed to feature their garden a lot, so I decided to capture this month’s last weekend at my Father-in-Law’s birthday party.
Busby and H-Bear need to be outside; they can tolerate each other’s imaginary play to a point, but after a while the bickering starts and I find myself playing the role of mediator. However, if we’re outside, they seem to chill out somewhat and we all enjoy each other’s company a lot more! The most recent period of glorious weather has been ideal for our adventures. Half-term was super busy, but wonderful because we were out doing things every day; no opportunities for boredom!
I think the reality of becoming a big brother is finally sinking in for H-Bear… or at least the fact that I’m having a baby! He told me this week that he didn’t need a nap because he’s ‘not growing a baby in his tummy’. Sometimes he really surprises me with his insight (and bold cheekiness!).
Talking of H-Bear, he turns three in just over a week. When did that happen? He still feels like my little baby.
After deliberating about whether we should have a party or not, we’ve decided to have a little bear-themed party, and I’m feeling quite excited about it! Pinterest has been a great source of inspiration (obvs).
Busby is more than ready for the summer holidays to begin, and I’m thankful that we’re off to Wales for a few days before they break up, so she can have some time out from the classroom. She puts her all into everything and has consequently been coming home absolutely exhausted!
I will end this post with the first strawberry from the strawberry patch in my in-law’s garden. Busby, H-Bear and my Father-in-Law cut the strawberry into thirds and shared it – a small, but momentous occasion! Summer is here!
