I managed to capture the twins in a rare moment of peace this week. I love their big brown eyes, endlessly long eyelashes and crazy wavy hair. This age is just incredible and I am constantly amazed at how much they take in. They think it is hilarious that they can chase each other round the house now, my boys rarely sit still and it always seems like they are on the go. They must learn so much from each other; whatever one is doing to other one wants to do the same and they can go from giggling to squabbling with several seconds.
We haven’t done anything particularly special this week but it has been a nice one as I feel I am seeing so much more of their personalities. Each afternoon we have our time together while Lucas is in pre-school; they like to play little games and bring me their favourite books to read. They are trying to copy words and ask what everything is but they are also letting me know when they are unhappy.
This week I’ve really tried to slow down a bit and just sit and play more. I’ve started to realise that all of a sudden they look big, and grown up, and not a bit like babies anymore. This time is passing quickly, our days can be so busy and I feel like I’m missing little moments with them. This week I’ve reminded myself to just be with them, everything else can wait.
