With that in mind and summer now drawing to a close, I thought it would be a lovely opportunity to reflect on the fun we’ve had over the past months. Flicking though Twitter this morning, I stumbled upon a lovely post by Organised Jo, where she provided a round-up of her top 5 photos on Instagram taken throughout the month of August. Thinking this to be a brilliant idea I’ve jumped on the bandwagon with my own five photos and intend to link up to her forthcoming linky when she gets it off the ground. So here goes:
My Top 5 Instagram Photos for August 2017
In at number five is this image taken of Ettie and I having an evening stroll over the South Downs. With her now going to nursery two days a week, I miss the time we used to spend together so I always make sure that both Stuart and I finish early at least once week so we can take a walk together when we pick her up. This was a beautifully blustery evening up near the Jack and Jill windmills in Sussex. We had loads of fun pretending to chase the sheep and watching the pretty evening colours develop majestically behind the clouds.

Evening strolls and moody clouds ⛈️🐼💛 Little Panda Pop is 14 months today!! She's getting so big now! Last night I asked her if she wanted a bedtime story and she toddled herself off to get a book 📚😍 It's like breaking down the language barrier with a foreign relative! She finally understands me!!!! ❤️ #EttieWilllow #littlepeanut #SouthDowns #14months #daugher #EttieandMe #magicmonthlysquares
In fourth place is this one taken of Ettie sitting on the hay bales when we were camping at Eweleaze Farm, in Dorset. It was the last day of our holidays and the boys were playing cricket so Ettie and I decided to jump upon a haybale to sit and watch them. I love how cheeky she looks with her little hairband in.
In third place we have this one taken of Ettie and I at Camber Sands in East Sussex. It was the her first proper experience of a true sandy beach as we’d tried to take her to Weymouth earlier in the month but it was too busy so she didn’t get chance to properly run around. Camber was beautiful but we were cleaning the sand out of our ear lobes for weeks!!!

We had such a fun day out today at Camber Sands. 💕☀️🌊 Although sand… There was soo much sand!! We tried a sandy beach to stop Ettie eating pebbles but she just dipped her sandwiches in the sand and ate it that way instead!🤦 #dayout #daytrippers #CamberSands #sand #somuchsand #sandeverywhere #EastSussex #bankholiday #summerdontstop #magicmonthlysquares
In second place we have a carousel of photos of Stuart and Ettie throwing pebbles on the beach at Eweleaze Farm. She was SOOOOO excited!!! I absolutely love her facial expressions and the fact that her Daddy makes her so happy.
And finally in First place for August 2017 is another picture taken and Eweleaze Farm and actually another carousel of photos, but this time only two. These are a couple of photos of Ettie and I on the same beach in Dorset and we are wearing the same yellow jacket and stripey top. I absolutely love these photos as I think it shows how unbelievably happy she makes me and how we’re like two peas in a pod. She’ll probably hate me for dressing us the same when she’s older, but if you can’t do things to embarrass your children now while they have no choice, whats the point of even taking photos 😉
Until next month
