It won’t be long until we become a family of five rather than a family of three and alongside the excitement I can’t help but feel anxious about the changes to Lucas’ daily life. We always wanted to give him a brother or sister, he is such a happy little boy and I know it will be a big adjustment for him but I hope he will enjoy having two little baby brothers.
In the meantime I love for us to spend time as a family making sure he feels happy, secure and confident before all the changes. My husband had a week off work and it will probably be the last one before the twins arrive so I was determined to fit in a day when we could go out, away from the screens and the phones, and just enjoy giving Lucas all of our time and attention. Our only free day happened to be our wedding anniversary and we spent a perfect day in Liverpool visiting the new library and World Museum.
Before we left we popped into the cafe for a cup of tea and a slice of cake; we chatted about what we had seen in the museum and felt in no rush to move on. It was so nice to have nowhere to be and to take everything at our own pace and best of all Lucas seemed to enjoy having us all to himself. We snapped a couple of pictures, shared cake and quite simply enjoyed being together. All too often we have distractions in our life or things to do and places to be, it was lovely to ignore the rest of the world and focus on just us three.
