Welcome to my first blog post!
What will I be writing about?
Well as the significant first birthday of Martha and Sylvie approaches- or ‘the sisters’ as we tend to refer to them in our house, I give you two guesses. There’s also another little lady in the house and that’s their big sister Flossie. She’s 3 and a bit…and is the only way I’ve been able to survive these past 11 months. Her and Daddy Hills of course. And wine. But without our first born I wouldn’t know where to start looking after two babies. So I’m sure she’ll feature in the blog too.
It will mainly about my mummy experiences but also about my interests and adventures too. Like what you ask? Well – I’m planning a wedding – so that’s one thing. I also like fashion, vintage, crafts, eating out, documentaries and a whole lot more! I haven’t had time for much over the past 11 months but I’m trying not to lose myself!
My two babies were born on- 12.5.13 – looking back I start to realise how dramatically my world changed on that day. I’ve started to reminisce about how little they were when they first arrived. This photo below illustrates how tiny the twins were and – lying next to Florence – how quickly they can grow.
Motherhood is not something you can learn in a book – but believe me I’ve tried. ‘What To Expect In The First Year’, ‘Toddler Taming’, ‘Baby to Toddler – week by week/month by month’, ‘A Contented House with Twins’…the list goes on! Whose the experts? I’m certainly not. But I do feel that having had a baby already has certainly prepared me for dealing with twins.
In this blog I’m hoping to document what life has been like over the past year. I’ll also document what it is like, week by week, month by month, to be a parent of twins and a toddler, to have 3 children under 4 years old and to adapt to what life throws at you.
I’ve been meaning to start this blog for about 12 months now.. today is my first post – I class this as an achievement. I aim to be much more efficient with the blog writing and post something every week or so. It might not all be twin related. But somehow everything is related to them now.
I’m also hoping to offer more practical help, from my own experiences and to try and connect with other parents out there who might find themselves in my situation.
So welcome and enjoy!
