As I sit to write this I am so sad to realise it is my first ever post on this blog about our beautiful girls Matilda and Quinn.  Maybe one day I'll go back and fill in some gaps but just in case I don't it's time to make a few notes.

These crazy girls of ours sure have tipped our lives upside down.  It has been the biggest challenge of my parenting so far.  I guess it sort of goes without saying that having 2 babies at once and jumping up to a family of 6 would come with some difficulties but WOW you really couldn't even imagine.

I know this time will be over so quickly and in a flash I'll have 4 teenagers and a whole new set of parenting hurdles to overcome.  I try so hard to appreciate them and their little gorgeous faces and all of the little quirks each of them have.  I try to record it in my mind and remember it all but it's already starting to fade.

I didn't record the dates that the girls rolled over, or stood or walked or cut their first teeth.  Does it matter?  I don't think so.  It's not because their milestones mean any less to me - I have cherished them just the same.  I just do not have the time to be all things to everyone anymore.

I'm happy - really happy.  My life is full of love.  I am also tired and exhausted, so tired some days I feel like I wont be able to make it to the end of the day.   Rob works so hard too and we are often like ships in the night. We're a great team though and these kids of ours are all doing so well and we are really proud and blessed.

Today Matilda said her first 'sentence'.  As we waved rob off to work she said 'Bye Bye Dad'  it was so bloody cute it motivated me to jump on here and note it down.

Our gorgeous Quinn doesn't say much but she understands everything that we say to her so no doubt she'll start saying all sorts of words any day now.  We have a bit of a laugh because she mainly talks in grunts and growls so we sometimes call her 'Chewbaca'  (Her words are Mum, Dad, Duck, Tilda)

Matilda can say Mum, Dad, Nanna, Noah, Harpy, Goggie,  Cat, Duck, Byebye, Seeya, Flower, Plane, Shoe, Milk and makes a few animal sounds.

Off to actually spend a minute with my husband now, Hopefully talk again really soon.
