104 weeks and 2 days | Happy birthday Twinkles! {Siblings March}

I can’t believe it! Today we are celebrating my babies’ second birthday.

No longer babies — in the truest sense of the word — these little siblings are now walking, talking little man-cubs; picking up new words and learning different skills every day.

The last two years have flown by so quickly; it seems like just last week that they were born and only yesterday that we saw them celebrate their first birthday.

So many things have happened in the last year.

They started crawling, walking, running.

We had their naming ceremony.

My boys began to talk.

They went to their first festival, went swimming, went camping for the first time.

And started nursery, two long mornings every week .

There have been so many firsts, so many milestones and so many developments happening — amidst all the other tiny miracles that occur on a daily basis — that it makes my head spin just to think about it.

An Incredible Journey

Incredible that the tiny, helpless little newborns that arrived in the world,  just 24 months ago,  are now  real people. With personalities and memories of their own.

I feel utterly privileged to call myself their mother; to have ring-side seats to watch them grow and a first class ticket to join them on their journey.

As we are on holiday at Bluestone, in Wales, at the moment— more about that on the blog in the next week or so — we won’t be having a party today. We’ll have a little tea party to celebrate properly,  in a couple of weeks,  but for now it’s just the four of us.

My three beautiful boys and me.

Enjoying each other’s company.

Happy, happy birthday to my little loves.  My darlings.

Mama is so proud of you.

    Happy belated birthday to your littles. Wow I love looking back on the milestones. Back then I didn’t have a blog and sadly I failed to always write everyone down. Thankfully I have my blog now. I hope you have fun celebrating and look forward to seeing pictures. Thank you for joining in with #countluckystars

    • 21st Mar 2015 / 2:01 pm

      Thanks so much! I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have started it!! I never — in a million years — expected to still be writing. I thought it would be something that would fade into the distance but I’m so happy I continued; it’s amazing now to look back at the boys’ development x
