Our first family photo

My Magic Moments and What’s the Story?  post this week is all about our first family photo.

Monkey was born on Thursday 10th December 2009 and after a bit of a bumpy start we finally came home on the Saturday night. I can remember sitting in our Living Room that evening with Daddy P and Monkey in his Moses Basket – we looked at each other – what do we do now???

On Monday 14th December we popped around to Daddy P’s sister for a few hours.  Her husband is a keen photographer (he took most of our wedding photographs) and he offered to take our first family photo.

So here we are, rather bleary eyed from what I can remember.  But I was dressed!

our first family photoSeems like a lifetime ago now, especially as we’re approaching Monkey’s 4th birthday.  It’s been a magical time, ups and downs, sleepless night, so many milestones jumped over, so many giggles, tears, tantrums and hugs.  How did that little dot turn into my big boy Monkey?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Lovely photo! The time goes so quickly doesn’t it? I can remember that ‘what do we do now?’ feeling when you get home from hospital too. We got home early afternoon when we brought Xavier home (an it was lovely sunny weather) so we turned right around and went to Starbucks!

  2. What a lovely photo! My little boy is just about to turn one and I’ve been looking back at his newborn photos in wonder and awe, so I can only imagine what it feels like to look back when your son is almost 4!

  3. Awww such a lovely picture. And brought back memories of my first hour at home after having DS#1. He slept in the car seat and like you we looked at him and thought “Now what?”
    Time flies so enjoy every day of your monkey. Before you know it he’ll be doing GCSEs and having driving lessons!

  4. Lovely first photo. I must say that you look fab considering you’d only given birth 4 days prior to photo being taken. #MagicMoments

  5. Wow you look amazing considering how soon after it was. Not only are you dressed, your hair is looking and you’re smiling! Brilliant work. It’s that time of year for reminiscing isn’t it – Monkey’s 4th birthday and POD will be 3 on Christmas Day. Always want the time to slow down! Lovely post, thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory

  6. That is such a lovely photo, you look amazing! I was a grey and bleary eyed mess after getting home with my eldest 🙂 I remember that first night well though, happy (if somewhat blurry!) memories!
