43 weeks and 5 days | 10 months today — Siblings {January}

I have been taking a photo of the babies on the 13th of each month, since they arrived. Unbelievably, that was 10 months ago today!!

10 months ago, my boy and I were in the hospital and our precious sons had been with us for just a matter of hours.

I was lying on a gurney, with a baby on each breast and my beautiful boy at my side. After such a long wait, our family was finally complete.

I have taken so many snaps of the Twinkles, as they’ve been growing, but the most important pic — each month — for me, is the one taken on the anniversary of their birth.

I mentioned in a previous post that I had intended to have a collection of 12 photos, at the end of the first year, that captured each stage of their lives so far. And that’s what I’ve been doing! Although our days are busy and there just don’t seem to be enough hours to cram everything in, our ‘birthday’ photo is the one thing I do remember to do every month. Without fail.

This month is slightly different though… this month I have taken my pic of the boys, as usual, but am delighted to post it on my little blog and also link up with the 10 lovely girls who have launched their ‘Siblings’ project.

They will be spending the next year capturing their own children, in a monthly photo, which they will share on their blogs. I am so happy to join in and  will be linking up at the Siblings project with the lovely Lucy at Dear Beautiful Boy.

I have taken a stack of pics today.

Sadly only  couple are really in focus — the rest are soft. Difficult to capture two little dynamos as they rocket about; even though they were contained in one cotbed! But actually, I like the fact that they’re not quite perfect. They are a true representation of this morning’s antics; it wasn’t still or quiet. It was busy and noisy and hectic.

Exactly how I like it :)

Happy, happy 10 month-birthday my beautiful, beautiful Twinkles! I love you to the moon and back X

  1. Awwww! love them! Such sweet photos – the last one made me squee an ‘aaaaaaahhhh!’ that was a bit too high pitch!

    How lovely ot be taking photos each month on their anniversary – I wish I had done that with mine x

    • Aaah — than you so much for taking the time to have a look :) Of all the things I’ve done — taking the pic each month has been one of the most rewarding. Their faces have changed SO much in the last 10 months!! The funny little old men that we brought home from hospital have been replaced with these little chunky chaps I have today :) I’m looking forward to having my full set of 12 to compare. Then I’m just going to continue!! They’ll have hundreds by the time they’re my age! LOL!

  3. Oh they are just adorable! I think it’s lovely you have an anniversary picture for each month birthday, it will make such a lovely memento of their first year – and they’re both as cute as a button to boot!

  4. Ahhh, so many lovely photos of your boys. It’s so lovely seeing them play together, they look like they really bring out the cheeky in each other.
    I’m so glad that you linked up with Siblings. Thanks. x

    • Thanks so much for having a look and taking the time to leave a comment :) They are cheeky – the pair of them! And only getting more so!! I’m looking forward to linking up again next month X

    • Ahh thank you so much for taking the time to have a look :) I literally DO take pics of them all day!! LOL! They are so funny and – even at 10 months – really good company for each other. Long may it continue :) x

    • I’m so glad it’s not just me! :) I gave up trying in the end and decided that just one baby in focus would have to do! :)
