Niamh – We have had a great week this week. After a little bit of advice from those that care about us , and who could see I was struggling, I have gone back to my usual parenting style. I am ignoring those that say I am too tough on you, too strict, and those that tell me I have to be gentle because of your world changing since the twins have arrived. It’s the best decision I could have made. You still have your off moments but they are now only moments, and we are again enjoying our time together.

Harper – You have been a little unsettled this week, for you anyway. I think your brothers discomfit and pain is affecting you too, you hate to hear him cry. You are really a happy little girl and your smiles are so infectious. You always wake up with a grin and love eyes for us all. Your favourite “game” at the moment is to lie on our chests and roll off to the right. It makes you grin like crazy and I am sure you would do it for hours if nap time didn’t intrude.

Declan – You are still struggling along and this week you have given your mummy and daddy a big fright. Your dermatitis has calmed right down, however your skin is still dry. The vomiting is not quite so bad but your sleep is still terrible. Saturday afternoon when you were having your bottle I noticed you were beginning to swell around the eyes. I raced you down to the local health centre (as it has an emergency care department) and you were taken straight through. By this stage your face was so swollen you could hardly open your eyes, your eyes were red and looked like I had socked you one, your dermatitis appeared out of nowhere, you were wheezing, your tongue was swollen and your lips and under your chin were too. I have never been so scared in my life. It was definitely an allergic reaction but we don’t know what to. You had a milder attack Sunday night and none since. We are now waiting for blood test results as the lactose intolerance ones were negative. Stay strong little man.

Last week my favourite blog was of gorgeous little Sage over at Fields Of Sage. That fluffy hat, those soulful blue eyes. Such a beautiful photo.

  1. Your babies are so cute. My favorite is the bath shot because of her beautiful expression. 🙂

    I’ll soon be writing about my daily life with twins and a toddler. The last few days have actually been pretty rough. Lots of tears.

    • Thanx Kayla I think my kids are gorgeous too 😉

      All 3 of my children love the water just like their mummy. You should see them in the shower. Continually trying to throw their head under the water lol.

      I’m looking forward to reading about your experiences. I’ve had a really rough time lately too, hence the lack of posts!

I love to chat, and the best way to do that is if you leave a comment. Thanx for taking the time!
