Me and Mine - October 2016

The Me and Mine Project

We are five. 

For less than a week we have been a family of five, and it has surpassed the rest of the month. 

A little boy, a son, a brother. 

We had special times together as a four in the run up to his birth - cinema trips, meals out, games together. Lovely memories. 

And now we are forging ahead into the new. 

It's exciting. And exhausting. And mind blowing. 

The girls love their brother. It's beautiful to see how they are with him - gentle, excited, helpful. Desperate to be close to him and to see his face. 

But they're struggling somewhat with the changes and with the time that I had to spend back in hospital, and we're having to learn new levels of patience and understanding. 

The last week has been a difficult one, and we're looking forward to November being gentler on us. 

But we have managed to get one whole family photo. 

We're happy, and we're all together. Slowly learning how to manage the new dynamics, how to be with each other.
