In my last post I mentioned how in the harder moments I was just trying to put one foot in front of the other and trust in God. Goodness this month has truly made me live those words with varying degrees of success. I can safely say I will not be sad to see the back of May 2016.
However there have been hard moments when I have looked up and seen my two little blessings loving each other and thought if God’s plan for my life right now is to be at home being their mum I’m not doing too badly at all.
My little brother sister duo are growing up just beautifully if not a little quickly. To me this month has been about communication for both of them.
Emma just cracks me up with her little phrases. She quite often puts ‘indeed’ on the end of sentences which gets all the smiles from me, or answers a request with ‘of course!’. I don’t know she just sounds so grown up in those moments.
Matthew has finally started breaking out some new sounds on a more regular basis. Although ’em-ma’ is still his favourite word and I kind of want it to stay that way, I now regularly hear ‘mamama’, ‘dadada’ and other babble.
Happily, the two of them are still loving being in each others company. I love watching their bond grow but occasionally find that Emma is now a little too protective of Matthew, he’s no longer quite the baby we all still want him to be!
