It was only after the babies had gone to bed this evening that I remembered what date it is… the 13th…
the babies are 13 months old today. SHIT. QUICK!! Get the camera out!!!
Cue Dickie and I leaping into action and hurriedly getting them out of bed — luckily they were still awake — to take their monthly photo.
Had I not remembered, this would have been the first ‘thirteenth of the month’ that we hadn’t taken their pic. And that would have been a real shame… taking a photo on the day either side feels like cheating, so I wouldn’t have been too happy with myself. Not great, either, given they’re only in the second month of their second year. That would have been an epic fail.
So these pictures aren’t the most well-executed; they are a bit chaotic — and the light isn’t great — but they really make me laugh.
The babies thought it was great to be coming downstairs after they’d been put to bed.
They were absolutely gleeful to be up again and they’re faces really show this.
This is how I see them, most of the time… happy, smiley little people, whose faces light up a room.
