For once I was actually really organised with our Me and Mine photos for this month- they were very impromptu and taken back in the middle of the month by my sister after we had been out for a lovely Father's Day lunch at a place called Hawthorne Farm near Leeds Bradford airport. The sun was shining, we were all together and we had someone with us to take a family photos so it was a perfect opportunity to grab some photos. I normally take them on my DSLR but sometimes it's nice to just capture a special moment spontaneously on the nearest iPhone! And these most definitely capture us on a very happy, family day- Mr F's 3rd Father's Day but his first as a daddy to two little boys. We'd been out for a walk in the morning and to spot some aeroplanes taking off and landing (one of LO's most favourite things to do).
Even though I was super organised with capturing these photos, the last day of the month really crept up on me and it was only when I saw everyone else's Me and Mine posts appearing this morning that I realised we were at the end of the month. At the risk of sounding yet again like a broken record, I can't believe where time is flying to. June has seen us spend a lot of time just relaxing as a family, going on sunny evening walks, trips to the park and just generally enjoying time at home as a four. The start of the month was exciting as one of my best friends had a beautiful baby boy, and then at the end of the month she asked if I would be his Godmother. I was absolutely over the moon to be asked as to me, being asked to be a Godparent really is one of life's greatest honours and I was really touched that she asked me.
Last weekend was a busy one as I was in London for three days for the Britmums conference. I obviously took Little L and my sister came along with me too, so we were able to make a whole weekend of it, seeing my other two siblings and their other halves too. Mr F stayed here with LO and they had an absolutely fantastic boys' weekend together- going to a local summer gala which his mum organises- a real traditional village event, with sweetie stalls, prizes, face painting and things. LO had his first ever ride on a little pony called Spot which he loved, although he looked so tiny on it. This month has also been the month that Little L has really taken off with his milestones. He has been rolling so much and is much less frustrated now, and this past week, we have also started on his weaning journey. It's early days and we are starting slowly with just a few purees and some easy finger food, but it's been so much fun.
And so on to July... we realised this morning that it's going to be another one that whizzes by as we literally have so much on. Every weekend is busy, and it's most definitely going to be a month filled with 3rd birthday celebrations (most of his friends) and then of course LO's own third birthday too, which we cannot wait for.
