So back to last year, once again, for these captured moments. Just over a year to the day, in fact.
The babies were a month off their first birthday… and they were on the move.
Crawling and cruising round the furniture, at a rate of knots, and giving me a headache as they were into everything!
When you’ve been so used to your little charges staying exactly where you put them, it’s easy to get complacent, when you’re a new mama of twins. People warned me that it would get tougher, when they started moving, but I didn’t realise quite how much!!
When you have two little rockets — shooting off in different directions — one in the back of the TV, pulling all the wires, and one in a pot plant, eating the soil, you suddenly realise that your nice, calm life is just about to be turned on it’s head!
These captured moments…
These photographs were taken at my in-laws and it was the first time we’d taken the boys when they were able to move independently. They absolutely loved exploring their grandparent’s house!
These pics were taken in the hallway; it’s a huge space — bigger than some of the rooms in our little cottage, put together — and the twins were in their element!!
Scooting round the furniture, crawling as fast as their little legs would go, they were having a lovely time!!
We were all sitting on the floor watching them and laughing and the light was so beautiful.
I remember Dickie, grabbing the camera and taking pics of the boys but it was only a few weeks later, after I’d downloaded them, that I realised just how lovely they were.
We’re so lucky, to be in this amazing age. We can capture images without a second thought these days. On our phones or on amazing digital cameras. No film, no waiting, no light meters; just point and shoot.
Makes me grateful that I’m alive today and not 100 years ago. Imagine how much harder it would have been to capture precious little moments like these?
