{Me and Mine} A Family Portrait Project 2016- January

 At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I must say that this month has flown by in a way I can't even comprehend. The month of January is generally grey and miserable and goes by slowly, but this one has truly been very memorable and so special for us- a month where we started as a family of three and by the 5th day, we were a family of four. I cannot believe where the days have vanished to- it hardly feels like a few days ago that our newest member Little Luca arrived, but indeed, he will be four weeks old on Tuesday.

Normally, we like to capture a photo of us on a day out or special occasion but we have really loved spending most of the month in the comfort of our lovely little home, enjoying lots of snuggly cuddles with our beautiful new baby boy. It hasn't been the easiest of months of course- with the inevitable sleepless nights, living in utter chaos and some difficult moments in the early days where LO found it hard to understand who Luca was and why he was in our house. But now, he seems totally at ease around him and understands that he is a part of our family and here to stay. In between the moments at home, we have had a few little trips out as a four here and there, mostly walks or trips to soft play with Daddy when he was on paternity leave, plus a wonderful trip to Hollywood Bowl for LO's first go at bowling and Pizza Hut on Friday night as a little treat for being such a good big brother all week. it made for a lovely end to a really wonderful month for us.

Our photos really sum up the month perfectly for us. My sister in law took these at our house when she came to visit Little L when he was a few days old. It's just us sitting on the sofa but I love them because they're our first photos of us as a four and I'll treasure them forever. I can't wait for capture more photos of us as a four each month through 2016.

This month, I have been loving:
*Having a really straightforward, natural birth
*Meeting our beautiful baby Luca
*Recovering so quickly after giving birth
*Lots of lovely newborn cuddles
*Breastfeeding my baby boy successfully
*Cosy cuddles with LO 

Little One has been loving:
*Meeting his new baby brother
*Giving Luca kisses on the head
*Watching Finding Nemo over and over again
*Reading Whizzy Busy People
*Playing with all his new toys he got for Christmas

Little L has been loving:
*Milk, Milk and more Milk
*Sleeping during the day
*Being awake at night
*Meeting his family
*Lots and lots of cuddles

Daddy has been loving:
*Meeting his baby boy
* Paternity leave
*Spending lots of quality time with LO
*Looking at houses for a potential house move
