Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

I have been very remiss in updating this site.

In my defense, I have been very busy of late. About four months ago I became a Mum for the first time.

Yes, thank-you, we're all fine. All four of us. Mum, Dad and our new identical Princesses, One and Two.

The girls are "sleeping through" the night on most occasions so I feel less like a zombie but I still don't know how often I'll be able to post something on here. It's hard enough keeping up with labelling the photos I take so that we know which one is which. I'm okay when there's a view of the face as I can tell them apart (now) but in some I have to remember which clothes they were wearing at the beginning of the day. Others are extremely difficult. How am I going to be able to tell them, when they're older, that I can't decide which one was in the photo? I probably am too worried about it.
One of my sisters became a Mum six weeks after I did and she also has a Princess. Just the one. She's quite glad that I have the twins and she doesn't.
It's quite easy for me to say that I do think I could handle just one baby more easily than two after this experience. I realised yesterday that it must have been my destiny to have twins and the reason I was given so much patience.
The girls are growing out of the newborn nappies and are smiling, laughing and babbling. The babbling is limited to "goo", "hoo", "ga" and the silent "coo" but they are talking to their reflection in the mirror as well as each other and their parents. It's very cute.
I'm on my way to bed as I will most likely be up again at 4am for feed time. Apologies if this post is in any way disjointed. My brain does not work as well as before and needs a bit more sleep.
I leave you with a line from my girls' current favourite song:
If you're happy, and you know it, then you really ought to show it,
If you're happy, and you know it, say "a-goo"...
