Baby Update: One Year On

Wow. Can you believe it?! Yesterday my babies turned one. One whole year!

Yesterday I wrote a letter to them and today I have been sitting down and taking stock. Forgive me while I bore you with pictures….

From their first day to their most recent they’ve been with me every day. I think the longest time I’ve spent apart from them was the day I spent at the Self Publishing Conference back in April. A hard day, that’s for sure, no matter how informative it was.

They have progressed and grown from strength to strength with startling speed:

Sitting up, rolling, crawling, cruising and finally walking.

Not to mention meal times, which are an absolute (messy) joy!

I used to measure pleasure and pride by my latest piece of writing. These days I measure it by Michael’s latest attempts to say ‘duck’ or Leon’s last successful navigation of the stairs.

After a year I’ve learned:
-bum sniffing is a perfectly normal way to assess a nappy
-that I’m stronger than I look
-so are babies!
-bath water actually tastes ok
-everything is edible if you try hard enough
-boogies are made to be picked

You may think this is all a bit nuts -and I promise a return to our usual programming after this – but honestly, these are important facts. 🙂

So… One year old, my boys are strong and well. What else is in store? I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Well done you!
    They say it gets easier after the first twenty years or so.

    Some things never change — the boxes are more fun than the stuff that was in them!
