    Non-Pupil Day at Colchester Zoo

    With so much going on this year it felt like our last visit to Colchester Zoo was years ago. So when we discovered that Ethan would have a non-pupil day at the start of his half term holiday, and Little E’s one year check had been cancelled. We decided to spend the morning at Colchester Zoo thinking it would be nice and quiet. When we arrived we couldn’t believe how busy it was, I think every school must have decided to have a non-pupil day and everyone with annual passes had the same idea. Ethan is starting to have anxiety about big crowds and you can feel him tense up…

    A Cold Morning At Colchester Zoo

    In an attempt to help Ethan sleep though the night we thought it was a good idea to get him out of the house on Thursday morning. After getting everyone ready we were able to leave the house just after 10am. It didn’t take long to arrive at the zoo and the plan was to take Ethan to the soft play but he didn’t want to go.

    Little E – 6 Months Old

    Dear Little E, Today you are six months old. Half a year old, time is flying too quickly! It has been a very busy month. We visited Lapland UK and you did amazingly well, being out all day. You did miss having your photo taken with Father Christmas as you fell asleep but we took you to Colchester Zoo to visit him so you didn’t miss out. You also went swimming for the first time and was so relaxed that you fell asleep in the swimming pool! You experienced your first Christmas and hopefully next year Ethan will let you open your own presents. You were a very lucky girl…

  • Me & Mine

    Me & Mine December 2014

    This month we have made two attempts to take our me and mine photos. This first was on Christmas eve taken by my mum, Darren looked very moody and Ethan wouldn’t look at the camera. The second attempt was taken yesterday by Grandma during our Christmas visit. Here are the results. I have realised that all of our photos taken so far have been sitting down shots. I would love to be more creative but I’m sure that will be able to happen when Little E is more mobile. The fact that we are able to keep Ethan still long enough for a photo is an achievement in itself! This…
