I blinked and all of a sudden my baby turned two. During the weeks leading up to this milestone her vocabulary exploded, along with her demands to 'go outside, dig worms', and "babycinno me" said with the most adorable Italian accent that came out of no where. Lara also became even more caring for others and showed this by giving toys to her sister, and at one point taking over feeding her dinner. We are still working on the whole sharing thing though.

Everyday with my babies is amazing. We may not tick all the boxes everyday, some days we don't do puzzles, but we always have big cuddles, read books and say "I love you" and that's what counts. I'm still learning to focus on the small positives that are achieved each day rather than guilting myself over the things I haven't done, and no doubt this is something most mums do. Now I just need to work out how to slow life down before my babies are whisked off to school.
