My Girls…October 2016

My Girls…October 2016

October has been the month where things have started to click into place. We are all adapting to our new school routine and Andy and I have the mornings sorted so we are all ready to leave the house when we should. Thankfully we haven’t been late for school yet!

Andy and I were chatting the other evening about how well Alice has settled into school, we’ve had no wobbles at all and I was sure there was going to come a time where she started to question going to school every day, but she hasn’t. She knows she goes to school every day that daddy works and then we have the weekends together.

As I sit here typing this I can’t help but feel proud of her. We literally put her into a school where she didn’t know anyone and she has just accepted that and got on with it. I love hearing her tell me about the things she gets up to with her new friends. Of course there is no point asking her what she has done, I wait and slowly little bits of information are given to me.

And its been a month where Holly and I have started to find our own little routine each week. With Alice now in school full time we’ve been able to make more of our days with trips out and to see our friends. She is at a really fun age and yes I have my hands full at times, because she is also nothing like her sister and gets into everything. I am really enjoying this time that we have together.

I was worried that it would be more difficult to get these monthly photos each month now Alice is at school. The weeks just flyby and before you know it, its that time again. But then a situation presented itself to me and the girls and I took a walk in the woods.

Holly was in a particularly mischievous mood, which you can see in her face on all these photos. But, they pretty much sum up my life right now and they also capture the different personalities the girls have.



I wasn’t going to include this one, but when I look at it all I see is Alice’s gorgeous smile. (And my Holly wandering off in search of stickman!)


Of course every walk in the woods involves random dancing!


My caring Alice…


The face that Holly pulls every time she sees the camera!!


They had started to go a bit crazy at this point!!

My girls in October, they are chalk and cheese but definitely part of a set and I wouldn’t change them for the world.

    Ahhh so lovely to see their relationship in full bloom and glad to hear everything is settling in for school too for you guys. It’s such a great new adventure having school kids now isn’t it? I can’t believe B is in year one and MM is starting reception in september next year. Life is just getting faster and faster. #siblingsproject

    These are gorgeous photos! Looks like they are having the best time.

  6. Oh they are just so cute together! I’m glad that you’re finding your new normal with the school run, it’s funny how soon things get to feel like they’ve always been that way – and then it’s half term!

    It is so lovely that Alice is loving school so much and well done for not being late. We still haven’t a whole year in and I think that’s a massive achievement with two! Love Holly’s camera face too xx

    What beautiful photographs! My eldest loves a walk in the woods – I need to invest in a sling or baby carrier though I think, as none of my pushchairs are great at off-roading! x

    Oh how lovely! The photo of Alice kissing Holly’s head while they’re holding hands is the sweetest thing! So glad everything’s settled down for you, and well done Alice! xx
