Me & Mine January

I'm very excited to be taking part in the Me & Mine family photo project series in 2014!
Pictures of the 3 of us are few and far between so this project is perfect for us. It gives us that extra nudge to get these family photo's happening more frequently. I'm really looking forward to looking back over the 12 photo's, one for each month, at the end of the year.

So here goes January:


This month saw a role reversal of sorts in our house hold. I returned to work and James took over more of the household side of things. We are lucky that between our shifts most days one of us is at home with Luke. My days at work leave very little time for much else and gives me 3 hours with Luke at most. We are slowly getting into a routine for the 4 days I'm at work and the 3 that I'm off.
As soon as I get in we have a bit of play time before he gets ready for bed. He's still getting used to seeing me with my glasses on when I come home! I really feel like those few hours on "work" days are snatched moments with my boy and really try to savour them. The poor little mite has been sick the last few days but he never fails to have a smile for his Mama when I get home.


This month Luke loves:  
  • Having his first 2 teeth cut through
  • A weekend in Nanny's where he had the undivided attention of his 3 cousins
  • Eating melon
This month Dad loves:
  • Spending some quality father / son time while Mum is at work
  • Clash of Clans (some game on his phone!)
  • Going back to football training
This month Mum loves:
  • Listening to the constant chatter from Luke 
  • Having hot cups of coffee
  • The return of Home and Away (although I have yet to watch it on the Sky planner!)

  5. It's odd adjusting to being at work like that isn't it? One of the reasons we moved last year was so I could see more of the kids before and after work. Lovely photo
