Growing up so fast!

The last 7 months since Samuel and Isaacs arrival have just flown by. They are now cutting their top teeth and they are taking solids in their stride. Very soon I am going to have to separate them as they are very quickly outgrowing their shared cot bed. Samuel is a relatively good sleeper so he may go into Noels room but for now Isaac will stay with me as he still wakes up A LOT in the night. 

They are fine until one of them wriggles, then they bang heads...

Hermione is also growing up quick. We went to look around pre-school a few weeks ago and she loved it. She will be the first of my children to go straight into reception class, Noel started school in Year 2 and April in Year 1. I have mixed feelings about this but I am assured by the head teacher that if I want her to start just part time I can, so it may well be the route I take. I will cross that bridge when I come to it. She is very excited about starting playschool, she talks about it every day. She has asked for a "Peppa Pig backpack" - I presume this is because her little friend has one. She is also in pants now and in a "proper bed" which has come at just the right time as I really need the other cot bed for Samuel.  I have wanted her to move into the bed for a while now so its been made up ready, and yesterday she surprised me by asking to go in it. Its lovely to watch her growing up in a little girl, she is such a chatterbox now.

My mum knitted both the girls a teddy bear. She gave Hermione hers today and on the tag she had written "To Mini, Love Nanna". I read it out and Mini said "me love Nanna  too". Priceless wouldn't you say.

I love my Teddy Bear - but I love my Nanna more.

I hope you all had a good Easter.

Lots of love Jemma, Stuart, Noel, April, Hermione, Samuel and Isaac x x x x x x x
