Top row: Mr J showing little A how to crack open a conker; they came back from the park with about 100 and I wasn't entirely excited until I found out that they apparently keep the spiders at bay, bring me all the conkers! — A month old Blue cuddled up in his Cuddledry® original during the shoot for his 1 month update — Baby Blue on one of my favourite duvet sets from good old Primani!
Middle row: Sadly, October sees the birthday of my very missed brother who passed away from SADS when he was 17 — A not-so-little A enjoying a nap on my widgey nursing cushion (one of my favourite things ever at the moment) — Me and my beautiful boys; I've been forcing myself to get in the shot more often and there's a record number of snaps this month with myself included so I must be sticking to it.
Bottom row: A shot of Archie and Blue in bed watching YouTube together taken from Jesse's 2 month update; photos like these are the best thing about having more than one child — Baby Blue smiling and enjoying his PurFlo breathable nest and PurAir bassinet [review coming soon] — Me with my Mama and little Blue.
I usually get bored of monthly themed posts but I'm really enjoying these Instagram round-ups; even more so now that I find myself posting less and so alot of shots don't make it on to the blog in other posts. I've realised Instagram is my happy place recently, where I can post any shots I like, whether relevant or not, and have a quick chat about my day or how I'm feeling. It's not easy to have a conversation via blog comments so it's lovely to receive advice and relate to other parents & bloggers via Instagram instead. It's easy to tell from this months collection that Autumn has well and truly arrived (wasn't it Summer 5 minutes ago?) and the first round of colds has hit our household; at least it's well and truly the time of year for plenty of hot chocolate!
Top row: So many shots of these two together this month and I absolutely love this particular one with a sleepy A — Ah, a lovely kissing selfie of me and my littlest; probably one of my favourite shots taken this year! — And a beautiful close-up of my biggest in his H&M bobble hat.
Middle row: An ordinary moments that I haven't written yet; our first real Autumn walk in the park featuring lots of conkers and climbing — One of my favourite selfies ever taken with the smallest; what a smile! — Catching my boys holding hands; one of the most heartwarming moments I've witnessed between them so far.
Bottom row: A shot from the pumpkin patch (of course); we didn't realise at the time but A came down quite poorly that evening which was why he wanted to be carried everywhere! A rare shot of him with Mr J — Baby Blue with the genius little invention we use every day to help him sleep for longer, the fab soothing centre that comes with the PurFlo bassinet [review coming soon] — A sneaky flatlay from a pretty heavy post I recently wrote about the pressures of blogging and why I'll be changing; What to do when you suck at blogging. .
