365 days

Exactly 365 days ago, 1 whole year to the day, I was sitting on the edge of the bath watching 2 little pink lines appearing on an inoccuous looking little white plastic stick. I had no idea what was to come, which was probably a good thing as P and myself were nervous enough at the prospect of becoming parents to 1 child let alone the duo we were actually going to get!

The babies are 20 weeks and 1 day old today :-) Edward likes to spend whatever time he has on the floor on his belly; he has learned how to roll but Im not sure whether he can control the rolling! Every time we put him down, be it to get him dressed or change his nappy he tries to roll over. He's also trying to crawl, so far he has travelled about 6 inches in an 'Action Man' style tummy crawl but I have a feeling it wont be long before he's off causing trouble at the opposite end of the flat! Harriet prefers to (try to) sit up and watch the world, she's got to perfect her balancing skills but she isnt far off sitting totally unaided. She wasnt interested in rolling until a few days ago, and I think she only does so now because she has discovered her feet/toes and grabs them when she's lying on her back, thus then rolling onto her side. She watches Edward a lot though, picking up tips and hints I reckon.....

Its quite difficult now to think back to when they were newborns, all wrinkled and tiny, let alone thinking back a year to when they were smaller still...
