“Making the decision to have a child – It’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” - Elizabeth Stone
So it's been a bit of a big year, one of those years you look back on and know your life changed from that date. Could be positive, going to Uni, or negative, losing my dad.
This year was the biggest of those life changes - and there's already been some biggies.
We learnt to live without sleep. To put three other people first in everything. To turn on the entertainment gene when every fibre in your body wants rest.
We inspired the most beautiful smiles, cleaned many bums, tickled tummys and sang far too many versions of 'Old MacDonalds Farm.'
We worried about tiny bodies hooked up to machines in hospital, worried about babies rolling across the floor, stressed about milk consumption and the regularity of poos.
We kissed soft cheeks, cradled sleepy babies and held tiny hands. We woke in the middle of the night (often) and drank hot drinks (rarely!). We've marvelled at how early different personalities develop.
It's been a privilege and the most exhausting year of my life - but worth every moment. Can't wait for 2013! It's such an adventure watching them grow. Love my beautiful babies and their daddy too. Happy New Year xxx
