Hope you & your lovely babies are all well. I've not been on in quite a while so just thought I'd check in and give/get little updates as we reach 1st birthdays! I cannot believe how quickly the year has gone by!
Matilda is such a lovely girl, mostly quite outgoing and friendly and has a lovely little giggle. She likes being read to and often sits just turning pages in books so she migth be a bti of a bookworm in the future. She is crawling so fast now - and always to the places where she knows she shouldn't be! I think she'd love to be walking but we're not quite there yet.
She is just cutting her 3rd tooth at the minute, she is so clingy when teething - part of me loves it as it is only me she wants and I get so many extra cuddles although very little housework gets done in these periods!
I'm trying out being self employed to see if we can survive on that - so far it is a tightrope but seems to be working and I am lucky to be able to spend the daytime with Tilly. If we were lucky enough to get pregnant again there would be no point in me returnign to work as childcare would outweigh my salary so I'm hoping the self employed thing works long term!
Tilly's 1st birthday is on 15 August and we are having a little kids party in the back garden the weekend before (I'm hoping summer will have arrived by then) and we will have a BBQ in the evening for our childless friends who are not so keen on being surrounded by children!
I have really enjoyed this year, and can't imagine life without Matilda now. The year has gone so quickly, and although there have been challenges I wouldn't change any of it!
Some pictures of Matilda recently:
