Last weekend we met some good friends for a day out. Whilst we were there we came across a huge horse chestnut tree also known as a conker tree. My boys have never played conkers before. So we set about collecting pockets full. I love seeing how shiny and smooth the conkers were fresh for their shells. The boys were so excited everytime they found one even though there were hundreds laying on the ground.
Where did the last 6 months go? Blink and you missed it. I can not believe that this little guy is 6 months already. Let the adventures in baby led weaning begin! Spaghetti and meatballs certainly went down well! I love baby led weaning for the ease of just having what you are having. I’m not super keen on the mess but it’s only short term and at least with this glorious weather we can eat outside!
Last Sunday, despite it being cold we went out to a local country woodland park for a walk. This particular place has had a lot of investment over the last few years. It’s now a marvellous place to go. It’s called Haigh Hall Woodland Park. If you are local to Wigan area I highly recommend a visit.
Theres a HUGE children playground. Several cafes and eating places can be found in the courtyard. Theres also a fabulous mini golf and a high ropes experience amongst other attractions. I even noticed a train running.
Anyway we went out for a walk and managed to capture (not on purpose) some lovely shots of the boys together. This one however made me laugh. It sums them up perfectly.
The eldest, sweet clever little guy (never stops talking!). The middle one who is super cheeky and very funny but still such a loving little monster (he also never looks at the camera!). The youngest absent as he was sleeping for a short nap in his pram. You couldn’t put it on a canvas but I love it all the same!
My middle baby always tells me how much he loves me. While I was cutting the front lawn on Saturday he picked some flowers for me and put them in the car door. I had to take a picture to keep the memory. He’s such a sweet little guy (when he’s not fighting with his brother!).
We are no strangers to cooking outside in our house. My husband is out in all weather with the BBQ or pizza oven. Friday round our way was such a lovely day, sunny and beginning to feel warmer. So with the warmth of the air we decided to make it the first pizza oven night of the year. We bought this pizza oven by Uuni a couple of years ago and it’s had a lot of use since then. It’s unbelievable quick to cook, just 60-90 seconds per pizza so you have to be prepared to get them in and out no hanging about. It has a stone base and is fired by wood pellets. One Friday we prepped 5 smallish pizzas to share between the 4 of us with various toppings. Once again it didn’t disappoint! Yummy yummy!
I haven’t taken part in Sunday Photo for a while, in fact I haven’t put a post out for a while either. Life has just got in the way. I have a baby on me 24 hours a day. He eats on me. Naps on me. Sleeps on me. You get the picture. It’s hard to type when I don’t have free hands! So yesterday I got the chance to take my eldest to a birthday party. He doesn’t get invited to a lot of parties as he hasn’t got a particular friendship group. He just mixes well with everyone. The party was at the local climbing walls and he loved it! I was so proud of how hard he tried and how much fun he had in doing so!
This week I’ve chosen a photo that makes my heart happy.
At 5 and a half weeks old we’re getting smiles. What’s more I actually managed to capture the end of one on camera, with his oldest brother just in the background.
His brothers love him very much and are always wanting to kiss and hug him, no matter what he’s doing. Which is lovely, but when I’m trying to feed him it can get a bit difficult. His latch isn’t the greatest any way and so having them all over him can sometimes really hurt me!
This week I looked for a while for a photo, but the same one kept jumping out. I was torn though. Not many people want to see a photo of my family. It’s much more interesting to look at something else. But then I realised that these little guys are my world. As this is my blog and I write it for the boys, I realised it’s ok to have a photo of my world on it.
This photo isn’t the best, it’s grainy and taken in bad light. But it captures the moment. The moment in time we were all together. My whole world (minus the hubby) in one photo.
I love it! I love them more than they will ever know.
