{Me and Mine} A Family Portrait Project 17- March

Considering how disorganised I tend to be in day to day life, I am generally very good at remembering dates and events with no reminders or calendars to remind me. I was even very organised this month and got not one, but two different sets of family photos. But did I manage to post them on time- the same time as I've been posting them for my me and Mine posts on the last day of the month for well over two years? No. Total fail. So here I am sharing them in April instead. The month of March just totally passed us all by. It was just quite a normal month for us really, with no major events to speak of, but rather, a quiet sort of month where we enjoyed lots of happy days at home, lots of lazy weekends and some really sunny days in the garden.

In fact, my photos for this month really do sum us up totally, and I don't think I need to say much more as the photos really do speak for themselves. It shows us as we really are, on a totally ordinary weekend. We had gone for an early evening walk around one of our favourite new spots at a nature reserve with my sister when she came to stay a couple of weeks ago. I luckily took my camera so I got my sister to take a few snaps of us. Totally unglamorous, looking dishevelled and with LO up to his usual games of wanting shoulder rides everywhere, Little L is practising his standing and walking, which is what he's done most this month, and Mr F and I looking utterly exhausted (me in particular) but completely content with life. 

I think that maybe because March just has been one of those ordinary sorts of months, that I can't really pinpoint a particular thing about it. It's been a happy sort of month but a really tiring one too. Teething has really taken over in our house- it's so bizarre that a baby's teeth can have such a huge impact on family life. But it really has big style here. Bedtime routines have gone way out the window, leading to late nights, middle of the night wake ups again and a very tired mummy and daddy. I think we're coming to the end of this teething episode finally now though. 

Overall though, it's just been a nice relaxed month. I've been loving the lighter, warmer evenings and just being able to be outside for a few hours each day makes everything seem so much easier. LO has been loving playing outside and helping his daddy with all things garden. Little L has spent much of the month teething and seems to have got 4 new molars through all at once. He started at his new nursery back in January and at the end of this month, reached the end of his journey in the baby room already. I cannot believe he finished in there on Thursday. He'd really only just got used to the routine of it all, and next week will make the move into the tots room, where he'll stay until 27 months. It really makes me want to cry as I already found it so hard him being at nursery anyway, let alone in a big tots room with the toddlers! But I'm sure he'll thrive and will love being around the slightly older children, and doing more exciting activities. 

And so on to April. I'm really excited for what this month will bring. Obviously we have Easter and the bank holidays to look forward to, plus Mr F's 34th birthday the day before Easter Day too, so I'm sure we'll have a bit of a celebration weekend. We also have a couple of little day trips planned, including our first trip of the year to the seaside, which I am so looking forward to. 

Here's my little family in March... (and a huge thank you to my sister for taking our photos).
