Snapshot Round-up: New Year Delights

The first month of 2015 has disappeared in a flash as it so often does. What a perfect opportunity therefore to celebrate what’s been making us smile in January.

This brilliant photo of Just a Normal Mummy with her ‘Wally Bubbas’ absolutely has to kick-off the Snapshot Round-up. Hard to believe this little man is now six weeks old.

Tales of a Twin Mum saw her twin boys start prep school, five months later than the UK, looking splendid in their uniforms.

Whereas the Polka Dot Family have loved their daughter enjoying new sports at junior school including indoor athletics, hockey and football.

And how unbelievably proud is the Family Fever‘s son with his first Beavers certificate!

Also doing brilliantly is Let’s Talk Mommy‘s daughter with her swimming lessons. Already looking so confident in the water.

While a few of us are decidedly lacking in snowfall, these spectacular icicles greeted Mum Turned Mom when she opened the front door!

Finally an amazing story from Blog Bay Bee. Their first Hearing Dog for the Deaf puppy passed his exams and the family went to see the sound alerts he has learnt. What a proud moment that must have been.

As for the Doves, January saw Poppy embark on swimming lessons at the local pool. It’s early doors but she’s loving it. Alas photography isn’t allowed at this pool so here she is enjoying her first pony ride at a local farm.


That’s it for this month, the theme for February is Half Term Fun. If you’d like to get in touch, you can contact Charly via Twitter, Instagram or PODcast.

    Thank you for including our daughter’s love of sport in the round-up. It is so lovely to see what others have been celebrating this month.
