Twins | Dear Harry and Matthew...22 Months Old

Hello Babies. Harry, that's you on the left which means that you must be on the right, Matthew.  Look at those gorgeous blue eyes.  Everybody comments on them.  You get them from your Daddy - Mummy's are green.

Here you are eating your breakfast.  You enjoy most breakfast items, but Matthew you don't always chew big pieces and this morning, you almost choked on a chunky piece of toast.  Mummy panicked as mummies do, but all was well in the end.

You have started to become more fussy over one or two foods at the moment.  Harry, you don't enjoy roast dinners that much and Matthew you find oven chips a bit boring- probably because there's no salt and vinegar on them.

You still have milk in the morning and at night, but Harry why do you like pouring yours all over the lounge carpet?  Daddy is getting fed up and says that I need to take your bottles off you, but you like them for milk and mummy doesn't want to.

I read a blog post the other night about the Health Visitor 2 year visit.  Mummy is worrying, a bit, about your speech.  You can both say the odd word, but not very much makes sense at the minute. You were born 7 weeks early, maybe you will catch up in the end, but I'm trying really hard to get you to say things.  Harry you like saying 'oo' words such as shoooos and twoooo. It's quite cute really.

This month has seen the arrival of simultaneous giggling, especially at Iggle Piggle.  You are so funny to watch.  You are also becoming creatures of habit.  Matthew you cry, if you think Mummy is going the wrong way in the car.  Any route out of the ordinary and you start off.  It's a proper sob too.

Your sleeping is still great. 7 - 7, with a nap at some point in the day. We still can't let you loose in the house, because you investigate a bit too much and when one is in one corner and the other is in the other corner, it is a nightmare.  Your favourite tricks are going under the sink for the dustpan and brush and washing your hands in the downstairs toilet sink with the water on full blast. You always dry your hands really well though, which makes Mummy laugh. 

Harry you still love trains.  Choo, Choo -  there's that oo sound again and Matthew, you like collecting little things together and storing them in containers.  If Harry takes one of your items, all hell breaks loose.

When you are at Grandma's house, you like playing with a plastic tea set.  Mummy has plans to buy you a brand new one all for yourselves, this weekend.

Mummy is enjoying more cuddles lately.  You like to sit on my knee and Harry, you like me to tip you upside down from my knee, down my legs and back up again.  Over and over again.

That's it for now, I think.  We love you lots,

Mummy, Daddy and Lauren x

  1. My triplets are 3.5 now, and this post brought back all the little things about when they were the same age as your twins. We too went through the worries about speech and word counting. Two of our little ones actually had PT because they simply wouldn't do tummy time, which made crawling tough.

    We still struggle, as one of our kids is so put off by social situations and loud noises that we worry he might have some type of issue (no worries, though, because everything we read tells us he is normal and we are simply over-worrying parents!)

    So awesome. Thanks for posting. #multiplemadness

    1. Oh no... Three instead of two to handle. I don't know how you do it. At least we can have 1 each! We do worry don't we. I feel guilty that I can't give them as much one to one as I did with my daughter. Thanks for reading :)

  2. Lovely update post yet again. I think speech is a big concern for most parents, particularly parents of multiples.
    In my experience most kids don't usually need anything other than positive reinforcement. My youngest is 19 months and he barley uses any words. But he can vocalise the word 'Hiya' for at least ten different meanings and uses hand gestures and pointing to get his point across lol. One of his big sisters didn't speak until she was almost 3 and just came out with full sentences so I'm not that concerned lol

    1. It's funny you should say that as Harry is constantly saying hiya. I wonder if he is trying to vocalise something else instead? Will have to keep an eye on that. You're right I shouldn't worry. They'll talk when they're ready. Thanks for reading and hosting :)

    1. You're right it does fly over. It's worse when you know that you aren't having any more too. I try to keep them as babies for as long as I can. Thanks for reading :)

    1. I hope so. I can't wait until they can talk to each other. Let the arguments commence! I bet it's lovely to see them interacting. Thanks for reading :)

  5. Awww you have very cute twins! I think as a mummy we worry about things anyway no matter how many children we have. I have a 9 and a 4 year old, I worry all the time, just about different things :)

  7. Oooo, those eyes! How adorable?! You are a super mum by the sounds of it and I shouldn't worry about their speech, as my brother keeps telling me, I don't know many adults who don't speak so they'll get there in the end! #SundayStars

  8. My son is 18 months and is yet to say a single word. I just don't get it, we talk to him all the time. I have given up reading anything about what they are supposed to be doing. Emma's Diary says by 18 months they should be saying 15 words.

    Oh well am sure he will speak in his own time, as will your two boys. They look so cute in the pictures!
