Our feet have hardly touched the ground during September, and not exactly in a good way. Dylan, Everly and Quinn have all made positive starts back at school and starting preschool, and Wylder and I have got used to our new normal with quiet mornings just the two of us. But September has brought with it a lot of trips away for Rich, which we all find hard in different ways. Add to that, the fact that we've also been very busy at weekends, and with other goings on, and the who month seems to have flown by in a blur of busy. October isn't looking to be much calmer either...!

But we have made the most of the down time we've had. And we've grabbed onto together time with both hands. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" and all that. And it's definitely been cute to see how happy the kids are at the prospect of Daddy coming home, or some time all together. 

I feel like the littlest two somehow manage to steal the show in our family photos this month; Quinn's cheesy face and Wylder's totally bemused expression just make me laugh so much. We decided to crack out some of our very best faces for a few photos once we'd taken the serious ones, and I like them too much not to share... so here are our not so pretty faces!

The Me + Mine Project - Dear Beautiful


  1. Love the fun shots. It is hard when your partner has to be away a lot. We’ve had a similar time with my husband having to be away for work this month too. Glad you have been able to enjoy family time together and that your older three are settling back into school and preschool. #meandmineproject

  2. Oh my goodness adorable full of rainbow happiness and love. Looks at little man getting in the silly faces with his tongue out at the end so cute. Your four are gorgeous. I dont' know how you get these photos ours went so wrong this month little man full of a cold and not impressed in the slightest of a camera in his face. You always catch your four together and all six of you together so beautifully hunny. Missed September siblings post ?? You ok? Sound like a busy month. Thanks for hosting.

  3. So glad they have all slotted back into school/started school in a positive way! Such a relief isn't it? Sounds like its been an exciting month and glad that Everly had such a fab birthday! 6 is huge haha! Enjoy October and hope it brings great things!!


  4. Ah I love these Lucy! September has been a busy one for us, with everyone getting used to our new normal. x

  5. These are all so lovely! Wylder's little face is so expressive, I love it! That's great your start to school has all gone so well - I'm definitely struggling with adapting to the new routine over here. I'm hoping October will bring a bit more stability for us in our house.

  6. I love Wylder's face! He's so cute. Your family pictures always look so happy and smiley. I hope October settles down a bit for you x
