Gareth and Molly are now 6 months old, half way to their 1st Birthday. I can hardly believe that this time last year, hubby and I didn't know there were 2 babies busily growing in my tummy. We knew I was pregnant, but it was not until my 12 week scan on December 1st, that we knew we had been blessed with twins.
The past 6 months have been a rollercoaster. They've been joyful, exhausting, occasionally exasperating, fun, filled with wonder, and never, ever dull.
Even at this age, their personalities are very different. Gareth is our laid back baby, he goes to sleep, on his back, with his hands behind his head, and stays that way until he wakes up in the morning. Molly is our busy baby, she fills her day with rolling, scooting along the floor, and playing. Even in bed, she's moving until she's tired out, and generally falls asleep on her tummy, after a few protesting 'but Mummy, I'm not sleepy!' squeals.
I'm so incredibly proud of them. I don't know why God Blessed my husband and I with these 2 fantastic people to love and care for. Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing a good enough job, or if they know that I love them.
Well, we've already got teeth (well, Molly has) at this half way point in this first year. Here's looking forward to more teeth, walking, talking, laughing, munching, and lots of hugging and kissing as we continue on this exciting journey.
