My babies are 18 months old today! Where did the time go??
I love them more and more every day but I must say at the moment they are driving me mad! They are into absolutely everything, one of them is constantly telling me no, and they either both complete ignore me when I tell them off or take it really, really badly resulting in tears. And the last two days they have refused a day time nap. This is surely just the start of things to come as they have well and truly hit toddler hood and have realised not only are they little individuals but just how much power they have.
I’m honestly not sure whether to be proud of them or be mad at them!!! They are growing so fast that I feel a little as if I’m not ready. I do miss those days of when they were babies, but now we have our own little things that I could never have done with them as babies. We have created silly little games and special bed time kisses that make my heart so full.
I can not imagine my life without them, and despite all the stress of the last month, all the ups and downs, all the disappointments, all the anger and tears, they have been my one constant. They don’t care that I’m not perfect, they just love me because I’m their mum and I make them feel special and safe.
So despite the fact they have refused a nap today, made an absolute mess, had a few minor meltdowns and been very cheeky, I am very happy that we have hit the 18 month milestone and that I got some extra time in for playing and relaxing with them. Life may always be changing but my love for them will only grow stronger.
