Me and Mine | January 2017

Pictures of all four of us together are rare. I’ve challenged myself to posting more pictures of the boys and a bit more about me, but what about my family? For this year, at least, I want to take a family photo of us at least once a month. My little family feels so much more real since getting married in October and I now have the same surname.
As the years pass I know these photos will be the ones I treasure the most. The ones where I can see every member of our little family grow month by month. I am absolutely determined and committed to keep this going for 2017. It’s hard to forget what kids are like at certain ages and I know I’ve certainly forgotten some months about the boys and I hate it. I hate that I’ve forgotten and that it wasn’t captured the way I wanted. So here we go. This is me and mine.

I absolutely can not take the credit for this photo and it was taken only a couple of days ago by the incredible Cathryn Wood on our family photo shoot. This photo made me cry. It’s the first photo of just us four together as family since we got married.
I expect the format of my posts to change monthly but this month I am just sitting here in awe. This is us. Jamie, Jade, Toby and Teddy. Perfectly imperfect. You’ll never get all four us looking at the camera and smiling at the same time and that’s ok. I just need all four of us to be present. Not with the camera, but with each other. For me presence is what makes the heart grow fonder, although I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like, and need, a break sometimes. But being around these beautiful people who make my life so full every day is truly blessing. And I am lucky. And they are mine. Me and Mine.

    Oh Jade this is stunning. A beautiful moment captured and its these moments I definitely look back and cherish. More so than the cheesy ones of us all looking at the camera, which are rare these days. I look forward to seeing your photos each month. x #MeandMine
