As I write this I am watching my 5 month old son under his play gym while his twin sister sleeps soundly in their cot upstairs. Weighing almost 9lbs Esther already sleeps through the night on a regular basis and when awake is a calm, contented, happy baby. A little over 10lbs William feeds every 2 -3 hours he chats and giggles, smiles and coos the whole time he is awake and is growing into a strong baby boy who is now able to roll from front to back!
2010 was a challenging year with IVF, pregnancy, emergency bowel surgery, premature birth, NICU, SCBU and being a Mummy to two newborns. That is all on top of having a job, being a friend, a fiance, a relative to others. Living an everyday life.
2011 is going to be anything but everyday. It is going to be extraordinary in so many ways. I will continue to watch my children grow every day and see them celebrate their first birthdays this year. We will welcome their new cousin into the world in a few short weeks and I will see my own little sister get married. David and I will take Esther and William on the first of many family holidays and in September we will become husband and wife, cementing our own official little family.
There is so much to look forward to and I am going to try my hardest to document the key moments here for myself and our children to look back on.
David and I have been through the toughest of times in the last few months and I am hoping that 2011 will be more straightforward for us and yet wonderful in so many ways.
I am so full of pride and love for all our little family has achieved this year.
I am stronger and braver than I knew I could be and together with David, Esther and William we are ready to take on the world.
So bring on a happy and healthy new year … for everyone x
