Me and Mine 2014 {March family portrait}

March 31, 2014 at 8:24 pm 6 comments

This time last year E had a cold for weeks.  This month it was my turn with a lingering cough that turned into a stuffy nose post swim!  I seem to have shaken it off faster than all other colds in the last 2 years – proof that unbroken sleep really is the best medicine now E no longer wakes at night (hoorah).

The biggest news this month was my Dad turning 70.  We would never have predicted a few years ago that he’d celebrate it by crawling around a soft play centre after these two lovelies!  23-3-14 - zac & euan

The pub lunch was perhaps a bit more predictable and certainly eating lots of birthday cake back at Nana’s was an absolute given.  We had a great family weekend together.  The at-arms-length family portrait snapped on my phone wasn’t intended for Me and Mine (see my last post about never having a camera with me anymore) but it’s the only family portrait we have this month.  23-3-14 - moorey family selfie

It’s interesting to see how the cousins have changed since last year.  For E development appears be measured in hair growth and reluctance to sit for a picture!

Taking part in the Me and Mine family portrait is proving to be brilliant for year on year comparisons. It’s never to late to join in. For more info and posts by other bloggers see Lucy’s blog Dear Beautiful Boy.

    Oh that’s so lovely to be able to measure the change over a year – and yes, development is definitely measured in unwillingness to sit still for a photo!

    Seeing a comparison like that is lovely. You’ve inspired me to try to recapture some older shots again!

    Oh I love the Me and Mine photo, you look like you’re all having the best time together, and thats fab.
    And the comparison photos are great, it’s scary how much kids change in a year, isn’t it? x
