Well I thought life flew by with just one child, but my goodness it seems to have picked up the pace even more since having two! Our first full month as a four is already over and it will certainly be one I will always remember. Life with two is definitely more hectic, but its nowhere near as difficult as I had imagined. Granted, Hugo seems to be a pretty easy baby. But of course there is plenty of time for that to all change!
It has felt like we have been missing Josh a lot during July. He was working at Hampton court at the beginning of the month for a few days which meant early starts and late finishes. The following weekend he jetted off to Barcelona for a long weekend with his three brothers. Whilst he enjoyed the sunshine, cocktails and child free shopping the children and I went to stay with his parents for a couple of days where we were very well looked after!
July for me, has mainly just been about finding my groove as a Mama of two. And of course focusing on getting to know our little Hugo Bear. Who we are all absolutely smitten with. I’ve loved having lots of one on one time with him whilst Bella is at nursery. But nothing beats the weekends when all four of us are together.
Despite Josh being so busy we have managed to squeeze in a couple of family days. We spent a lovely day with Emily, Jack and their two littles a couple of weekends back. Although the weather wasn’t on our side and we ended up having an indoor BBQ! I am pretty sure I wore my rain mac every day last week – not exactly the July sunshine I had hoped for lets just say. The drizzly weather has already started to ignite my excitement for Autumn and Winter. Which I KNOW is waaaaay too early but I can’t help myself. I just love Autumn, it’s my favourite!
We rounded the month off with some Sunday morning fruit picking with Josh’s brother and his family which was where we captured this months photos (Thank you Steff!!). This was then followed by a lovely family meal out to celebrate Josh’s parents 20th wedding anniversary.
Overall July has been fairly busy for us but still super lovely. The next month is looking to be much quieter thankfully. I’m desperately hoping for some brighter weather in August so we can tick a few more things off of our bucket list before Summer is over for yet another year!
How was your month?
