After the four month sleep regression, Edie and Mabel were brilliant sleepers. We have a really lovely hour’ish long routine where they start by having a bath at 6pm, pj’s and a bottle by 6.30pm and go down to sleep awake but drowsy in their own cots by 7pm. It’s like clockwork and they did (emphasis on did) sleep 7pm till 7am for a long time… It all started to go a bit fuzzy around their first birthday when they weren’t very well and they went through some sort of 12 month nap regression. We kept our bedtime routine the…

Mini Breaks With One Year Old Twins

If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know we haven’t had the easiest of times lately. Work and life in general have been making things not bad but just sour and so after a run of illnesses, teething and rubbish stuff, J came home from work one day and said, ‘let’s go away.’ We had a quick local search but most things were fully booked given the short notice and on a whim, I searched for Edinburgh. It was a long shot as it was the week before the Fringe started but it’s only two hours drive from where we live…

My anti-birth plan also helped because I was educated by my consultant so I knew all…

People keep saying to me that time flies by once you have babies and they can’t believe how quickly the past year has gone since I had Edie and Mabel. In some ways, I agree… in others, I feel like it’s been a lifetime! Perhaps it’s because they were preemie twins and they haven’t grown as fast as fast as some of my friends singleton babies but I feel like I’m waiting forever for the next milestone or for them to put on a bit of weight. The girls started to sit up on their own shortly after our holiday…

Twins and a Sickness Bug

There’s really no nice way of dressing up the title for this post… it is exactly what it says it is. We had our first experience of all been very ill at the same time last month and clutching at straws, once I’d finally dragged myself out the bathroom, I googled ‘help, twins, sickness bug’ and nothing came up for me. I’m really not sure what I was looking for but it was probably just comfort to know that you can survive! We’re not sure where we got it from but Edie was the first to get sick on the…
