Oh, Me and Mine project, how I’ve missed you. So much has changed since we last met up (March 2014, our 15th Me and Mine picture, just after E’s 2nd birthday, ). Other bloggers remained steadfast year after year, I’m sorry we drifted apart.
Will you have me back? I have so much I want to tell you!
Euan is 5 now and has a baby brother called Luca who turned 1 this week. It’s even harder to get a picture of the 4 of us but a stranger in Williamson Park in Lancaster did a fine job don’t you think? We had a pit stop there on our epic journey home from Scotland and shared stories with E about Mummy and Daddy falling in love as students in Lancaster over 20 years ago. He thought Daddy’s story of falling asleep on this bench was the funniest. We thought it was funny when our little comedian immediately pretended to be Daddy!
Oh, Me and Mine project, I have often thought of you and since L arrived you have inspired two family photos. Our first picture now we are 4 was taken in May 2016 when L was 1 month old. He’s changed so much since then – he hadn’t quite mastered smiling or staying awake!
He’s 7 months old in the second picture taken in November 2016.
A note about the Me and Mine project:
It’s all about capturing your whole family together in a photograph.
Lucy at ‘Dear Beautiful’ explains ”I feel really passionate about the importance of photographs of family, and not just photographs of children. Our children will want to see us present in their childhoods when they’re older. So we shouldn’t wait until the perfect day or until we lose a little weight, or until we get better at photography. What really matters in that we photograph all the memories, and that means all of us being in them”.
