Me & Mine – A Growing Family – June 2013

If you haven’t heard of this linky then you are missing out, not only on the linky itself, but the blog that hosts it. Dear Beautiful is the blog of honestly one of the kindest and most beautiful people I know. I feel honoured to not only know Lucy online but also in person.

She has the most beautiful family you have seen, her little ones constantly make me smile online, they are infectious.

Lucy came up with Me & Mine with a series of other bloggers a few months ago, I have constantly tried to join in but with no success, but this month I have done it!!!

dear beautiful

The concept, to take a family photo within the month, she started it to make sure she was recording her family as a whole each month, let’s be honest we all constantly take pictures of our children and of them with our partners, but how often do you get a whole family shot, not often I bet, I actually do not have one picture of my family, My Parents and siblings and it shall never probably happen as my parents separated over 20 years ago now.

So here are my pictures for June, I actually have 2 as a certain little person named Deacon arrived this month, so I quickly had to take another shot to include our newest, handsome addition.

I am not honestly happy with either pic, the 1st Addison as always was not happy for a picture to be taken.

The 2nd was a quick photo on the sofa 2 nights ago with my iPhone, but here we are, the Innocent Charms Chats family in its entirity.

    Oh yay! This has made my evening. And I absolutely LOVE that you basically have a before and after photo. One of you as a four and one of you as a five. It might sound weird, but I really treasure the photos we have from when we were a little three, it seems like such a fleeting time now, but it was a special time too. So it’s sweet you’ve included your “Before Deacon” photo. And what a gorgeous family you Innocent Charmers are! So thrilled for you that your gorgeous little man is here. x

      Not weird at all. I did the same constantly when I had Addy. It’s a real different way when you have 2 babies. That time with your 1st is a very precious time.
      Thanks for the comment and love xxx

  • Katie @mummydaddyme

    Awwwww yay I love that you have a photo of the five of you Kara- how special and I love that there is one of you before Deacon arrived. My family photo for January was just the three of us and then a few days later LL arrived- I love looking at the January one as I can’t imagine her not being with us now.
    You are such a lovely family, and I love you lots. I am so glad Deacon arrived safely. You are an amazing mummy Mrs S! x

      Mwah. Always making me cry and smile at once Miss Katie. I am lucky to have such an awesome friend. I know what you mean about looking back. Not so much when you have a 3rd but when we had Addy I would always look back at our life before x

  • Lauren_W

    I’m so glad you joined in. I love that you have a before Deacon and after Deacon photo. You look amazing in both, which I’m very jealous about seeing as you were heavily pregnant and now have a newborn.
    You look so proud in your second photo, and so you should be xx

    • innocentcharmer

      Aww thanks so much for your kind words. I am one proud mummy to 3 x

  • Chloe

    I think it’s a really a nice touch that you’ve included the two photos, such a clear before and after – it’s very poignant. Deacon is so gorgeous!
