Holidaying with a five week old!


Sharing this one with What’s The Story? Linky at Podcast Dove and newly discovered Magic Moments at The Oliver’s Madhouse.

I love this picture because it is probably the first picture of me with both my boys together in a little (minus daddy) family portrait. It was taken near the beach at Salcombe in Devon where we went on holiday for a week at the end of August 2012 when EJ was just five weeks old. We went with my mum and dad, sister and brother-in-law and 12- and 13-year old nieces and it was so lovely to be surrounded by family who were all happy to entertain JJ and muck in with the baby. It was also nice just to be out and about after five weeks of watching everyone else abuzz with Olympics fever – I never even managed to watch one of Mo Farrah’s races but EJ will always be remembered as being an “Olympics Baby”.

In a week’s time we will be going away again, minus my sister’s family as, sadly for us (but great for them!), they are off on the other side of the world in Australia visiting their antipodean relatives. This year we’re off to Ventnor in the Isle of Wight with Mum & Dad and looking forward to some fun days with the boys.

  1. What a gorgeous photo – you all look so happy even little AJ. What an incredible summer to be born in! Have an amazing time at the island (you should do Australia another time) and thank you for sharing #whatsthestory

  2. what a really really lovely story, how fantastic you got to go on holiday after only 5 weeks after giving birth and having so much lovely help.

    Thanks for linking up with #MagicMoments

    P.s I am slightly envious as you looks stunning, after 5 weeks of a newborn .. i fear I did not look so radiant when we took our son at 4 weeks lol x
