Me & Mine March

I'm not sure if it's because of taking part in this project or not but the month's are just flying by! We are already a quarter of the way through the year, it won't be long before I have to buy a frame for my 12 family pictures!
March has been slightly quieter than February though not much. We celebrated St Patrick's Day and Mother's Day, my first one! Luke wasn't too sure of the Patrick's Day celebrations, the crowds and noise of the parade were a bit too much for him. We had a lovely day, just the 3 of us visiting a local play area and eating cupcakes, I'm trying to be "good" and "healthy" but thought with the day that was in it, a cup cake was allowed.
There was another night out with friends this month although I think I'm done with them for a while now, I'm just not able for them like I used to be. We've got a teething baby this month, those top 2 are almost through though, needless to say the lack of sleep is taking it's toll. However, Luke has mastered his version of crawling and he is flying around the house and getting into every nook and cranny, I love it.
The clocks going forward is probably my most favorite thing this month, I love having the extra bit of day light in the evenings and it means that Summer is on it's way...hopefully.
I've struggled a bit this month with finding a balance between work and home life but things have settled down a bit now, although I feel like this month's pictures aren't up to scratch and I had planned on taking them earlier in the month but my energy and motivation was not there all that much.
Nonetheless here it is, our portrait for March:




This month Luke loves:

  • Crawling
  • Opening the kitchen drawer where the saucepans are
  • Being awake all night
This month Dad loves:
  • Going for a cycle
  • Watching Thor 2
  • Having a couple of Sunday's off
This month Mum loves:
  • Watching Luke crawling around 
  • Gypsy Sisters - the ultimate trash tv!
  • Finally getting around to printing some photo's

    1. Oh I know, my alarm went off at 6.40am for work, Luke and Daddy were able to enjoy cuddles in bed until 8.15am just as I was about to leave...I was a small bit jealous ;) xo

  4. Crawling - exciting! (And time-consuming). I have also stopped going out recently - missed so many friend's birthdays, etc, but I'm just too knackered. It doesn't last forever though.

    1. That's my mantra "this won't be forever" when it comes to the sleeping although it sure feels like it!!
