Five highlights from the last month of summer:
1. FIRST TOOTH
It feels like every month J achieves another milestone, with August witnessing his first pearly white. Since then, he's welcomed two more to his smile. Teething has been a whole new world of discovery for L & I - J wants to chew everything he gets his hands on, let alone having to try and console him when the pain gets too much. We're so proud of him for handling it so well. Three down, 17 to go-!
2. PINNING LIKE A MADWOMAN
With the big move on the horizon, I've been pinning like crazy while we plan our new family home. I've been pinning rooms and ideas I love since the platform started, using it as my go-to when renovating our current home. Now I need it again, which is why I'm so glad I've continued to pin styles and quirky ideas I've spotted over the last few years. (I knew they'd come in handy!) We've been focusing a lot on our next kitchen as it'll be the heart of our home. You can take a look at my favourite styles here. VERY excited!
3. "SAY GOODBYE, GOODBYE"
J and his three besties ("The Awesome Foursome") had their last ever baby sensory class together this month. Every week is a theme and their final one was superheroes (I opted for the classic pants-over-leggings look as you can see...! The front of them had a batman logo on - J is going to thank me for the photos I'm sure...!). It was a very emotional goodbye for us all as a couple of mummy friends are going back to work soon and when that happens our maternity leave will feel very different. They've made my journey into motherhood so much fun and have been the most incredible support every day. You can't beat a look from someone who's going through exactly the same thing as you at the same time - a "yeah, I get it" look. It really is the end of an era for our little chaps but we can't wait to continue their friendship as they get older, and ours!
4. FIRST FARM
J and I celebrated my bestie / his godmother's birthday with a visit to a farmyard. Technically it's his second visit but he was pretty young when I took him with his cousin N a few months ago, so this trip felt like his first proper experience seeing all the animals. Hands down his favourite animal was a big mummy pig and her piglet (as you can see from the photo!). I think this is largely down to his favourite programme being Peppa Pig-!
5. CLEARING THE WAY
A big move calls for a big clear out - I'm planning to only bring things I really love to the new house. (That's the intention anyway!)
