Chrisโ€™ birthday yesterday and the celebratory cupcake gave us all the sugar rush we needed to get through to the end of the day.....๐ŸŒธ
.
Anyone else noticing how school/nursery has made everyone just that little bit more โ€˜funโ€™ come 4pm!?!! ๐ŸคชAs you can see, we are always bathed and in pjs now before 5pm to a) kill half an hour before teatime b) stop them asking for tea as soon as they come home c) keep them awake and contained and d) ensure they are dressed for bed come 6pm!....๐ŸŒธ
.
Waking up with cake in her hair, ketchup smeared on the spica (freaked when I first saw that on her leg this morning!) and toothpaste crusted on her mouth, but yes, you are going again today....this is now what happens ev-er-y-day....for what will feel like eternity!!...(she writes as she skips out the door off to work!)....๐ŸŒธ

I mean sheโ€™s always been loud, but this week has seen another level...shouting, singing, yodelling, laughing, crying, screaming....any way to make sure we know she is still in the room (and always hands on hips!).....๐ŸŒธ
.
Starting week 9 and Soph is as sassy, funny and bright as ever, using all these qualities to her full advantage!....๐ŸŒธ
.
Iโ€™ve even caved and gone Kinder Eggs for the second breakfast....first full days at school and Nursery, surely itโ€™s ok!?!!....๐Ÿ™ˆ๐ŸŒธ

So this time next week if you're anywhere near Lancaster, you are likely to hear a loony cake lady screaming from the skies above ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
People have been so kind in giving to @stepscharityworldwide, the charity I'm raising monies for in doing this sky dive. They will be so grateful to everyone's generosity as am I. We personally know the huge importance of this charity as our daughter went through years of operations and months in body casts.
She will be there next week cheering me on โค
If you would like to sponsor me there is still time.
Thank you so much to everyone who has given their hard earned money to help these children.
You are amazing xxx

Sophie has blown our minds this week.....Chris and I just canโ€™t stop saying how amazing sheโ€™s been settling into Nursery and letting nothing get in her way, when weโ€™ve been selfishly feeling weโ€™re done with hip dysplasia....๐ŸŒธ
.
I was pretty on edge last week wondering how it would all work out, but this little wheely-chair alongside a she-wee and being flexible with working with the school to settle her, has been the saviour for a little girl starting Nursery with her twin sister....๐ŸŒธ
.
And Iโ€™ve been holding out to share this, just in case it all went a little wrong and the smiles I was hoping for would be replaced with some optimistic quote!....๐ŸŒธ
.
SEN red tape....threenager tantrums....anxious, yet caring Nursery staff.....determined, yet exhausted parents.... all could have easily contributed to it not going so well.....๐ŸŒธ
.
But this week does have a happy ending.....as the Nursery staff commented โ€œShe is incredible!....Itโ€™s gone so well!....and howโ€™s she only just turned 3?!!โ€ ....๐ŸŒธ
.
Lessons most certainly learnt this week....
.
๐ŸŒธtake each day as it comes.
๐ŸŒธbe willing to try.
๐ŸŒธslow down.
๐ŸŒธand always #bemoresoph .

Bring on Part II.....๐ŸŒธ
.
Could squish this little lady all evening if sheโ€™d let me....bit gutted for her that the cast isnโ€™t above both knees and no-one likes to see their child upset, but I feel so grateful and damn lucky that this is a journey that will end at a much better place.....๐ŸŒธ
.
We might be running on low and feeling the pressure at times to juggle all the balls, but spending a day on a childrenโ€™s ward really brings it home to what is important to love and put all your energy into.....โค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ

Back to Toddler Group not back to school for all of us today.....๐ŸŒธ
.
I hadnโ€™t really thought about how Sophie was going to get up to her usual activities as she has always been very independent....๐ŸŒธ
.
So apart from me not being able to make idle (yet always necessary!) Mum chat and drink my usual 45 cups of tea before 11am as I had my hands full, we were all pretty content.......and I canโ€™t pretend I didnโ€™t have a little happy well-up when she managed to sit on a โ€˜normalโ€™ chair and access pretty much everything she always has.....just so pleased.....๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŒธ
.
So much so I asked to borrow said chair to take home and play trains with her little besties!!...๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป this might make it that little bit easier to start Nursery next week with her sister.....๐ŸŒธ
.
Holding out for that obligatory starting Nursery/School snap.....๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐ŸŒธ

Cried like a proud first-time Mommy this evening.....๐ŸŒธ
.
This determined, strong, funny, AMAZING little girl rolled and crawled all the way across the bedroom for the first time this evening using her โ€˜Super Gheko musclesโ€™ #ifyouknowyouknow ๐ŸฆŽ......do you remember talking about those milestones with all your Mummy friends with your first born? And then you realised that once they were more on the move it was game over for quiet cuddles and cuppas in a coffee shop?!....๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒธ
.
I canโ€™t actually remember when Sophie did any of those things first time round, but nearly 6 weeks down and I wonโ€™t be forgetting this....๐ŸŒธ
.
Canโ€™t pretend I wasnโ€™t a little worried to start off with, but apart from a bit of carpet burn on her knee, no upset at all.....๐ŸŒธ
.
97 photos and videos later, I canโ€™t stop smiling....๐ŸŒธ

This Twin Mum thing can be hard at the best of times when everything needed is always imminent and in surround sound, but youโ€™d think Iโ€™d know by now the golden rule of โ€˜you need two not oneโ€™ for all to be well on a Friday morning!....๐ŸŒธ
.
A tad colder today, with Sophie saying her legs were a bit chilly, so we got out the unicorn socks....cue the biggest meltdown going from Emma as clearly a massive #twinmumfail with only one pair, and the โ€˜pin-seshโ€™ socks sheโ€™s been wearing all summer just will not do!....๐ŸŒธ
.
That and the fact Iโ€™ve run out of Rice Krispies seems to mean the world has ended....๐ŸŒธ
.
Do love the socks though!....๐ŸŒธ

Weโ€™re not minding this cooler weather, especially for this guy in his cast! Heโ€™s been in such great spirits though considering his current state, and he also sat still for a picture for once ๐Ÿคฃ
This cozy long sleeve and beanie will be available for preorder tomorrow at 9am pst. Turnaround time will be 2-3 weeks.

Happy 3rd birthday to our little ladies.....๐ŸŒธ
.
This photo was the first one taken when they were together at home, 2 weeks after they were born....๐ŸŒธ
.
Both girls were in SCBU for one week, with Emma extending her stay due to a few more issues....Sophie was always the bigger, stronger and more resilient twin, so it was quite a surprise to us, and the consultants she saw, that she was the one diagnosed with hip dysplasia.....๐ŸŒธ
.
Today has not been as quite as peaceful as this photo, but weโ€™ve enjoyed a very easy day after all the excitement of yesterday.....seems just being with โ€˜my best friendโ€™ for the day is all you need....๐ŸŒธ

Party day!...๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŒธ
.
Because when a 3 year old in a spica cast wants a Mister Maker Arty Party and you need to make 20 children sit down with her for a few hours, you pull out all the stops!....๐ŸŒธ
.
Ooh how Bank Holidays have changed!....๐Ÿฅ‚๐ŸŒธ
