Must they keep growing?

I love watching these two play together...nicely!

They are such precious moments.  Why must they keep growing?  I know each new milestone is lovely, and sometimes a relief (as they outgrow continual night wakings, no longer need to be breastfed, can do things on their own etc), but I also find it sad.  Time is fleeting and as each day, week, month rolls by I wish that I could just bottle them up!   I joke that my big girl will be at Kindy next year and then ready to leave home but I feel like it's not that absurd.

Birthday treats

I really try to make each birthday special - make a cake, blow up balloons, have presents stacked in a corner for when they wake up, make a birthday shirt (for the children) etc.  When my birthday rolls around it's usually just another day.  BUT this year hubby surprised me and baked me a cake ALL BY HIMSELF! It was wonderful!

The girls behaved completely for the entire day, even napping at the same and letting me put my feet up.  BLISS!
