It’s been a while, six months to be exact! Life’s obviously pretty hectic, with working, 3 kids and attempting to keep fit by running twice a week! Plus, if life isn’t hectic enough, we decided to have a huge extension on our house, which started in Jan!! I think we are crazy! Work is going well – 28 hours seems to provide the perfect balance, not always but most of the time! The first week hard was hard, I really missed my babies, to the point where one day I almost cried at my desk! It got easier after a…

After almost 11 months off, the time has come for me to go back to work! Experiencing mixed feelings about it. Looking forward to being able to drink a cup of coffee whilst it’s still warm, and also being able to go to the loo when I want and on my own. But still sad that I won’t get to spend all day, everyday with my babies. It’s a very personal choice, but being a stay at home mum is not for me. The money is obviously a big thing and going to work allows us to have all the…

Due to Henry waking in the night again, due to teething we decided last Sunday (15 Sept) to put H & H in separate cots. This is a bit of a milestone for twins. We’ve put the cots next to each other and over a week later I’m delighted to report that we’ve had no issues. In fact Henry appears to appreciate the extra space and they’ve both been sleeping better. J x

How does it go…? Something along the lines of: we sacrifice our bodies, careers etc for our beautiful babies and what’s their first word…? Yep, you guessed it, Da da! Heidi today at 7 months and Henry about a month ago! The funny thing is, he’s not even here, he’s at work! Typical lol! Very proud of them both though. We now just need to work on Mama! xx

So, after a few days of Henry moaning, dribbling and waking in the middle of the night, Heidi’s first tooth has made an appearance! We didn’t even notice she was teething. Henry’s teeth are still yet to make an appearance! Hopefully they’ll pop through soon and we’ll get some sleep again! x

We’re finally getting there with the weaning! The twins are on three meals a day and seem to love food. We’ve been doing a mix of finger foods and purées. I tend to do more finger food when out and about, things like cream cheese sandwiches, cucumber sticks and bits of bread and veg from our plates. We even went to Portugal last week and it wasn’t too tricky. We had a villa, so made sandwiches when we were going out and used jars (not something i normally do, but all of us deserve a break on hol) and easy…

We’re a few weeks into our weaning adventure and it’s been interesting, messy and at times, hard work (the double cleaning and washing is a nightmare)! Been doing a combination of baby led (blw) and purées. I intended to do more blw but I’m scared of the choking! So far we’ve had the following finger foods: Toast Banana Avocado (not popular) Melon (scary when Heidi coughed up a huge chunk 2 hours later!) Rusks Sweet potato Broccoli Cauliflower Courgette At the moment it feels we’ve got such a long way to go… x

We began weaning last Monday (15th July). It was the day after we returned from Spain (post to follow) and both twins had shown lots of interest in food, so we decided it was time. I’ve included a photo! So far they’ve had: Baby rice Carrot Banana Banana porridge Sweet potato Banana and sweet potato (for Heidi) have been the most popular. Henry is very good at taking food from a spoon, whilst Heidi just wants to feed herself!! Keen to go more baby led once they reach 6 months, to hopefully make weaning as easy as possible, so just…

Well as the title says, it’s been a while! H & H are now 19 weeks and growing so fast (Henry is now 13lb 8oz and Heidi 13lb 5oz), Henry can now roll and they are finally sleeping better! Heidi goes from 7pm ish to 7am ish. Henry is still a little hit and miss, we always feed him at 10pm, sometimes he wakes once, but if we’re lucky he’ll go till 6/7ish! Getting more sleep makes a huge difference! Life as a mum of 3 is certainly hectic, but we’ve all adjusted well. Oscar loves his two siblings and…
