Before I go to bed each night, I give the girls a little kiss on the head and breathe in that yummy air that surrounds them. My heart skips a beat and I just can’t believe how lucky I am to have these 2 little ladies in my life.
We knew from 24 weeks that we were going to have another girl and since MM joined us in October, our family finally feels complete (well, I certainly won’t be going through those wild pregnancies again…no way!)
I guess that it’s just second nature to expect her to follow in the footsteps of her sister. To sleep the same, eat the same and be a mini version of Munch in every way. If the past 14 weeks have taught us anything, it’s that this is most definitely not the case! MM is every bit her own little mind, which I now realise would ofcourse be the case (no 2 people are the same). She’s not a big eater, not the best sleeper, but she is full of smiles that quite simply pack a punch and I’ll take that!
It’s such a blessing to be her mummy and I’m looking forward to the experience of helping her grow. Teaching her right from wrong, sharing her ups and downs and having her join Munch and I in our girly sleepovers.
She has really slotted into family life so well and it is such a pleasure watching the bond between her and Munch.
It’s been a journey for us all, getting to know her and her us. We are getting there though, one day at a time.
