The First Swing {The Ordinary Moments}

 

I have to say that I am guilty of missing some milestones of the twins; so many little things happen that get glossed over in a busy day, things that were probably celebrated with my first. I am also guilty of not doing as much with them as I did with Lucas; obviously many things aren’t as easy, especially if it’s just me out with all three of them. I feel like they spend so much time watching from the pushchair as I chase round after Lucas. They don’t seem to mind but it’s nice to be out with extra people so they can explore a little further.

This weekend, with plenty of back up (four adults) I was able to celebrate a little milestone that is one of my favourites, the first swing. I love this one, it is just pure childhood to me. I’m sure Lucas was testing out swings around five months but he was a sturdy little thing and was sitting up by then. Arthur and Brandon are very relaxed about things like sitting up but thanks to other twin parents I have seen the best twin trick ever for the playground; back to back swing!

I wasn’t too sure what would happen as we popped them both into the seat; they occasionally panic at something new. However, you can tell from their massive smiles that they loved it, such total joy and it was lovely to watch them giggle away. It helped that Lucas was next to them, that is why Brandon has the biggest grin on his face! This might just be one of the cutest things to do with twins, a great party trick for all you twin parents out there. Also, I didn’t purposefully dress them in orange…they just happened to coordinate perfectly with the swing!

  1. TOO MUCH CUTENESS. I don’t think I could stop myself from wanting to steal them if we lived near each other, they are just so so gorgeous. You are right, that first swing milestone is such a lovely one. Especially when you have a brother to share it with! x

  2. I love these photos, they look so happy in the swing, especially sharing the same one! I still can’t believe how quickly they’re growing up, it doesn’t seem like yesterday they were born.
    Thanks for playing along with Point + Shoot xx

  3. I know exactly what you are saying, I felt and still feel the same. It is hard to get out and involve all three children and have all three happy. But I think that you start to look for easier ways to do things. I love how you got the twins in the swing. I dared the park with ours last week with the help of my mum and they loved it but I will admit I don’t know if I’d be able to manage on my own. But as they get bigger is does get easier and I do go further with them on my own. Beautiful pictures x
