Christmas Day was perfect... the girls were delighted and it was the first year Ava was really able to engage with it all, it was also the first year all four of us ate Christmas dinner together. Heidi held out for her nap and rolled exhausted into her cot before pudding, but it was lovely to all be together with the wider family.
Of course, there were a few outtakes... but outtakes that I treasure almost as much as the real thing...
Because these photos make me smile - they really capture the reality of what #MeandMine has been for us this year... a fun project that we have had a giggle taking part in, and not taken too seriously...
But to be honest, I'm so proud we've made it to one year... I'm usually absolutely hopeless at following through on projects like this, so I'm so thrilled to actually have a photo of our little foursome for every month of 2014.
It's so fascinating to look back over these photographs from this year and realise how much we have changed. Dave and I may have lost a few hairs/grown a few greys, I may have lost my baby weight, only to start putting it back on again with our latest family member. Ava has transformed from a toddler to a little girl with a personality that at times drives me mad, but for the most part makes me so honoured to be her Mama, and Heidi has changed from baby to toddling, talking, cheeky little nutcase that she is.
So here you have it... drumroll please!
Our #MeandMine 2014.
HUGE thanks to Lucy at Dear Beautiful and the rest of the gang for running this fabulous linky. It has been so much fun, and such a positive goal every month, and I really feel so chuffed to have this little record of our family this past year.
Bring on #MeandMine 2015!!
