2016 was our busiest year yet, thanks to the arrival of our bouncing baby boy in February. It’s crazy how quickly a year can go, this time last year I was just preparing to go on maternity leave and now I have an almost 1 year old.
I love this photo, in the latter stages of pregnancy I made sure we took weekly photos so I could remember my bump. I wish I had taken photos throughout my pregnancy, I will try and do that next time for sure. I loved this top, I think by the time I gave birth it was the only one that my bump would fit in!
My first ever photo of Oliver an hour or so after he was born. Look at those little spoon marks on his face, he still has marks now the poor thing! I couldn’t believe that he had so much hair when he was born, I was expecting a baldy baby as I was one!
My first mother’s day with my little squidge, I love this photo as he is actually looking at me and it’s a rare shot of us two which isn’t one of my mad selfies!
This photo I took after Oliver had been for his JoJo Maman Bebe photoshoot, he was so tired he fell asleep on his changing mat when I changed his nappy (the first and only time!) obviously being a baby model was just too much!
This is one of my all time favourites, he was so happy! Oliver has such a great sense of humour and I think this was about the time it really started showing.
This one was from my best friend’s wedding. I was so anxious as I had to leave Oliver for the first time for a few hours before the wedding, I was worried because he was still feeding ever 2-3 hours and I knew he was going to be due a feed mid-wedding. Luckily he kept quiet and happily waited until we had finished the service!
Oliver’s big day – his Christening. Here he’s pictured with his godmothers, my best friends. We had such a lovely day, it was so hot and we had a party in the garden, Oliver loved all of the attention!
Oliver first started weaning in August. This is from the early days of weaning when he would entertain a banana. Nowadays he just chucks them away and won’t eat them!
Stu spent months working on this cozy coupe. We bought it second hand as Stu wanted to modify it to take along to car shows, he added a harness and Oliver loved sitting in it and being wheeled around. Oliver LOVES a steering wheel so he will happily play in this for ages!
Somehow the pumpkin has made its way into Oliver's toy corner (@daddysmiller any idea how that happened??) but he seems pretty pleased with the idea! 😂 • • • #rememberingthesedays #mamarazzi_square #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #thatsdarling #littlefierceones #littleloves #thismamaloves #instababy #whatevertheweatherkids #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #mbloggers #pbloggers #lifecloseup #pinklinker #thislittlebiglife #mytinymoments #momswithcameras #umh_kids #childofig #parenthood #thehappynow #mydarlingmemory #celebrate_childhood #KCACOLS #happylittlebuttons #UKparentbloggers #puddingposes
The pumpkin was such a hit! It took me ages to get around to carving it because Oliver really enjoyed playing with it, pushing it around and banging his hands on it. He loves anything that makes a noise.
My gorgeous baby is 9 months old today, he's now been out longer than he was in for! I can't believe he's already 3/4 of a year old 😢 • • #rememberingthesedays #mamarazzi_square #letthembelittle #candidchildhood #thatsdarling #littlefierceones #littleloves #thismamaloves #instababy #whatevertheweatherkids #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #mbloggers #pbloggers #lifecloseup #pinklinker #thislittlebiglife #mytinymoments #momswithcameras #umh_kids #childofig #parenthood #thehappynow #mydarlingmemory #celebrate_childhood #KCACOLS #happylittlebuttons #UKparentbloggers #puddingposes #capturingtheday
This photo was taken on Stu’s birthday trip to Mercedes-Benz World on Oliver’s 9 month birthday. He enjoyed going in the cars and testing their steering wheels!
Well of course I had to choose his Christmas morning shot! Doesn’t he look cute? The hat stayed on all of 30 seconds!
That’s my 2016 in photos. I can’t believe it’s already 2017 and how much my baby has changed in such a short period of time. I’m looking forward to seeing what 2017 has in store for us!
