No more falling asleep in my arms

Today I watched Twin B fall asleep on her cot for the first time. Previously she would fall asleep in my arms but for the past few nights, it's been harder and harder for her to fall asleep in my arms. She's usually half asleep when I put her in bed unlike previously when she would fall asleep.

I love her beyond measure, and I feel sad that my little girl is growing up faster than I thought possible. I always tell her "you are so small" and she would say "mama big". And I would say "you are mama's" and she would say "baby".

I used to fear the day she would no longer want me to rock her to bed and that day is upon me. Then the days when she will be able to read on her own will come and I will no longer have the pleasure of putting my little girl on my lap and read all about Clifford, Mr Bones etc.

I cherish each moment, each memory with this child of my heart.

Gutted interior

Renovation work has started and our house is gutted on all 3 levels. 

Renovation is certainly a long tedious process but so far my CEB has proved to be easy going (as usual) about the choices which makes most of the process a smooth one.

This is definitely a milestone in our marriage!

I'm a home owner!

We collected our keys to our first home today. :)

Both of us are home owners for the first time! Talk about putting the cart before the horse - we got married, had kids then bought a home.

If the condo my in laws are letting us stay in had more than 2 bedrooms, we wouldn't be looking to move at all, or maybe we would given how far away it is from our work place :p

Now, we are truly in debt.

Completing sentences

Twin B is now able to complete sentences. I say "peeka" and she says "boo"! Or I'll say "Humpty Dumpty sat on the" and she would say "wall". She demonstrates a clear liking for "Clifford's Halloween" and I must have read the book a million times. She keeps bringing books over to me to read and will sit on my lap. She displays little interest in toys - perhaps they are the same ones. She can't fix puzzles unlike Twin A who has better motor skills.

Today, it struck me that they are no longer babies, but toddlers. I left them walking about in the playpen and when I changed and came out, Twin A was sitting on top of Twin B who was in the rocker. My first thought was how did Twin B get on the rocker when all these months I had lifted her onto the rocker? And Twin A grinned at me as if pleased with her prank. And my thought was "not a baby anymore! She actually has a sense of humor!"

Not quite sure if it's genes or all the food we have been feeding them but they are often mistaken for toddlers 2+ when I take them out. And I can see why - couple of days back, I put them in size 18mths swimming wear I had shipped from US months ago and after I looked at the pictures, I realized how fat both are. Oh dear!
