Today you two are two. Two years ago the two of you were about to make your grand appearance and turn our worlds on its head – and complete our family and let my heart grow more than I ever thought possible.
Two years ago your Daddy and I woke up super early. I was not allowed to eat or drink which you know for Mommy is bloody hard but especially when pregnant! We drove the 20 mile trip to the hospital full of nerves and excitement. I remember looking across the fields to spy another blisteringly hot day on the horizon. But this day on 7th June 2013 was going to be so much more than a glorious early summers day.
We have had two wonderful years of watching you grow. From the day you were born all combined 13 pounds 1 ounce of you both I have been in absolute awe. TWO BABIES! I say this regularly and you will probably for many years to come catch me gazing at you in sheer amazement that I have you two girls and that there is two of you!
Two is a funny age. You’re no longer babies but you are still so little and dependant, although you both don’t think so! You are fiery and determined and I am sorry I don’t understand what you both always want, I try my best girls I do. Each day you get a little bt more confident and need me just that little bit less but remember no matter if you’re 2 or 22 – Mommy is always here. I will sit cuddle you, wipe away tears and try to soothe all your pains away. You see, when you hurt – I hurt. I just want to keep you safe and see you happy. Life is so precious as you will find out. Life can be short so seize the day but more importantly – smile. I know Mommy doesn’t always smile because she sometimes find it hard that I don’t have a Mommy anymore, but you have helped me more than you will ever know. I can’t wait to tell you all about your beautiful Granny. Every birthday of yours will always hurt that little bit more because she never got to see you celebrate your first birthday and each year reminds me she won’t get to see you all grow up.
But as you turn two today, I am excited about the road ahead. From 2 to 3 you are going to change so much. We have potty training, losing dummies and the path towards nursery – big big changes but I have to accept you are growing up.
P1 – my biggest girl. That 1 minute that you are older is going to be incredibly important in a few years no doubt! You were my dinky dot. 6lbs of perfection and during my pregnancy you were such a good girl despite the odd scare. I cannot believe you are now 2. You have grown from this shy, quiet baby into a rather fiery character! On the whole you are pretty laid back but my word when you go EVERYONE knows about it. The past few months you have become such a Daddy’s girl but the one love of your life remains – panda. Or bamba as you call him. You have such a gentle soft nature when it comes to your teddies and dolls; always cuddling and patting them. You rock yourself off to sleep and snore whilst having panda to cuddle. My darling – I love you so much. My big baby girl! Happy birthday P-Cat!!
P2 – from our scan at 13 weeks I knew you were going to be a monkey! We saw you kicking your big sister and every scan from there on in you would never get into position that was needed! You shocked me at being so big at birth – almost as big as your brother who was in there another 4 weeks! You are just as wild and mischievous now but I get to see that huge grin with those naughty eyes! You were so forward in your crawling, standing and walking – eager to get off in life and see what you can get involved in. Whilst you are super confident you still can’t stray too far from Mommy and your big sissy who you adore (most of the time!) I hope you keep your cheeky crazy side because you make us all laugh so much. Happy 2nd birthday Beebo – I love you so much.
Today girlies you are 2. But you will be my babies forever and ever. And you know what? I can’t believe I had twins!!!!!!!!!!!
