November already! Hard to think that this time last year I didn’t even know that Wills would be in our future and yet here he is! I am pleased to say that we have had a brilliant month, with the girls settling back to their normal happy-go-lucky selves. I have hated that they have been affected by his arrival and have made a conscious effort to guide them through the change step by step.
To anyone else you would have thought they were fine, but I know my girls and I knew they weren’t quite right. 10 weeks in and they are much more settled, playing nicely with each other and behaving as they normally would.
How difficult is it to take photos of a) a baby and b) 3 children at once?! It was ok when he was a fresh newborn as he just did nothing at all but now he moves around and pulls faces it is near on impossible! What makes it more difficult is the fact that it is freezing outside and the only place I can do a mini photoshoot is on the floor or on a bed!
I did think the novelty was beginning to wear off and maybe it has, but it has been replaced with a genuine love for him. He has been a part of our lives for such a short time but it feels as though he has been here forever now. I think that is what has been the biggest shift this month – he is a proper little brother, not just a baby.
People keep asking me how I am finding having three and honestly I am loving it. They have slotted together as siblings so well and it makes me so excited to see how their bond changes and grows over the next few months. He smiles when he sees them now and I the strength of his legs means it won’t be long and he’ll be chasing after them!
