This month me and Mark had two dates. Two! We went out for a meal and for a walk and lunch. We've only left both children three times and the first was in January. We rarely get time together to just be Mark and Nicola so it was lovely. We are trying to do it at least once a month this whole year.
Paige and Parker have both blossomed this month. Paige's speech is coming on leaps and bounds and we had her first ever parents evening at nursery during the week. Parker has just turned 8 months old and is pulling up, cruising and crawling so quickly. Paige took her first steps at 9 months, I really hope Parker doesn't follow suit but he is so eager to chase after Paige so it wouldn't surprise me.
As always I left it until the last minute to get this months pictures and as we currently aren't at home everything is a little messed up. Schedule's are messed up, everyone is a little more tired than usual and we just generally don't feel 100% comfortable, if that makes sense.
So the pictures were taken in the room that we are all sharing, on my iPhone and selfie style again. Yes, four of us in a room with Parker waking twice a night is fun... not! Also sharing a bed with a 2 year old isn't fun either.
But this is us right now. Paige was grumpy because she was tired, I'm trying to make her smile, Parker is pulling Marks ears hence Marks face and Parkers cheeky grin.
