This time a year ago I was almost out of the first trimester, and we knew that there were tiny siblings nestled within my uterus. Now they are almost six months old – laughing, babbling little chaps who delight in the world. It is fun to watch them ‘fighting’ over toys, to sit them opposite each other for the rare moments that one will amuse the other.
They are becoming little people so quickly. I look at these photographs and see traces of who they will become in five years, ten years, twenty. I can imagine them wearing their house ties at school, taking notes in a meeting at work. Time seems to speed up faster every day. I don’t want them to grow up too fast but at the same time I can’t wait for them to begin to interact properly, to share a joke and a laugh together, to play.
This month I have the tremendous pleasure of sending you over to our lovely Lucy at Dear Beautiful. Lucy always takes the most beautiful and ‘real’ pictures of the time that her young son and daughter spend together and yet again this month, she’s made me awfully broody to give my boys a little girl sister!
