These photos should really feature Harry and Lottie, chasing about in the countryside, playing hide & seek together in the fields, which is something we love to do at weekends as a family. However, Lottie is currently coming towards the end of a 6-week rest period after breaking her leg. She’s doing fine — and can’t wait to get her cast off — but is really missing out on these kind of adventures.
Instead, here’s Harry, (right before bedtime), on a very hot summer day here in the UK. He’s having a stroll with me, collecting sticks, as well as defeating the odd nettle on his way too, obvs.
If you got a boy/boys you’ll know that EVERY walk has to involve collecting sticks, as well as bug hunting, plus chatting away about life and asking many questions!
We were very kindly sent some lovely outfits for the twins recently from fashionworld.co.uk and here Harry is wearing his. He’s wearing blue Monsoon shorts, white Ralph Lauren trainers and a grey Voi sweater. I love this kind of look on him. Plus everything can be worn with lots of other kinds of outfits too.
Lottie’s outfit is ready (below) for when she’s up and about again, and of course is a pink & white floaty, pretty dress and sparkly shoes! Her dress is by Monsoon and her sandals are girls Birkenstocks.
I actually like dressing the children more than myself these days; I absolutely love kids clothing and finding stylish but practical wear for them. And as their clothing takes a lot of wear and tear (omg, ALL THE washing), good quality clothing is important to us. I also pass on Harry’s clothes onto my nephew and so I do need his clothes to be of a good standard.
So sticks at the ready, Harry is about!
Love, Jess x
