Wowee, that month went SUPER quick! I know February is a short month anyway, and we were very, very busy, but my god I feel like I’ve blinked and we’re in March already! I guess we have been rather pre-occupied because WE HAD A BABY!!!
Ok, so technically, we had a baby in January, but I’d already written my times to treasure post plus was a little busy having said baby to include it in the post.
But Henry Cole has been here for a month now and goodness me he has slotted into our family so well. Alfie adores him (most of the time) and I think we’ve made the transition from one to two pretty well. Obviously it’s been hard but we’re getting there!
Here’s what else we’ve been treasuring this month:
With Daddy being on paternity leave, we’ve been able to have a fair few family days together, including going to the zoo, the farm, swimming, the Gruffalo trail and visiting family and friends.
We also had two special events this month. Firstly, a family wedding when Henry was just 10 days old! I think a lot of people thought I was mad but I’m glad we went and had a fab time. We then had a Christening the following week which was also a lovely day with our wonderful friends.
We had our newborn photo shoot this month too. We decided to have a lifestyle shoot rather than a posed newborn session. I’ll be doing a separate post on it, but it was amazing and the photos are 100% what we wanted. We couldn’t be happier!
Rather surprisingly, we were hit by a TON of snow this month! The last week of February suffered heavy snowfall from the “Beast from the East”. So Henry experienced his first snow day at 4 weeks old and Alfie had his second snow experience in 2 months! Henry clearly wasn’t bothered and Alfie enjoyed it for a bit but did get very cold quite quickly!
And just like that, February was over and we have lots to look forward to in March, including my birthday AND Mother’s Day!
