World Prematurity Day today. So I thought I would share a few pictures from when my twins were born.
Lily and Sofia were born at 33 weeks on the dot. Lily 4lbs 8oz and Sofia 3lbs 13oz. They were tiny but they were perfect. They both needed some help with breathing to start with, but mostly it was to keep their temperature and establish feeding.
This was the first time I cuddled them. It was scary! They were so tiny and so delicate, but also they were so content once they were snuggled up together and on me. I could have sat like this for hours and hours with them. After 5 days in the hospital, I had to leave them. It was completely hard breaking.
I tried to express for them but as I wasn’t with them my milk just dried up, that made my feel even more useless. Not being able to be with them, and then not even able to provide them with milk when I wasn’t with them.
I was exhausted after my C-Section, looking after Tyler who was four and then having to go back and forth to the hospital to spend time with them each day. I think you can see in this picture how tired I was!
Lily came home after 2 weeks and Sofia sadly didn’t come home until about 5 days later. It broke my heart leaving her on her own.
This photo was taken just before Lily came home, they couldn’t even fill their tiny baby clothes yet!
Heres a big hug to all the prem baby parents out there. It feels like a long journey at the time, but its worth it once they are home and strong.
So back to back to our normal day! 9 years down the line, the girls are bigger and now arguing over everything! But love each other very much!
I’m still washing loads and loads! So much it doesn’t fit on the washing line and I have to use the outdoor sofa as a drying rack!
Mum and Dad popped over, so thought I was capture Mum!

We headed off out today to West Witterings, it was a beautiful afternoon. We all love it here, freedom!
Does anyone know what these are? They were on the sand where the water comes in and loads and loads of them. Really hard and holey!
Perfect place to dig, for both child and dog!
Mirror image twins!
There were so many shells and things on the beach for the kids to find today, including an Oyster shell found by Sofia
Tyler took over camera duty for a bit today too, I had to get snapped didn’t I!
Sofia was being difficult and trying her best not to let him get a photo of her!!!
Tyler and Sofia walked all the way back to the car linked together!!
I really like this photo, the colours and them finding a little shallow path across
