They are both around the 20lb mark now and are in 9-12 month clothing and though they are still a bit on the small side they have the strength of lions.

They have both developed an interest in books... Especially if I am reading one - they have also developed a love of Peppa Pig and Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom (which at times is a real sanity saviour).
This year has been hard and good and ultimately pretty amazing. From dealing with them falling off of the sofa and a trip to the emergency room, to seeing them stand up for the first time. It has been a year of firsts. The first year or so of mummyhood has felt a bit like boot camp (minus the unflattering cargo pants), and I'm sure there is probably still more training to come. But if anything, what I have learned is this:
Always be ready for anything and if things really get crazy, a hug, a toy or a sweet treat of some kind helps...(Of course that is all for me) - what works with the babies is generally an episode or two of Peppa Pig!
Merry Christmas everyone - I hope that 2013 brings you all the happiness you could wish for.
