Wow, so more than a year flitted by and all of a sudden, Gwen is two! Blaise is one!
We considered having a party for Gwen’s 2nd birthday, but no-one was free when we were. Instead, she took a cake to crèche and we had another little cake at home. It was nice and simple.
Gwen absolutely loved all the presents she got too. Thanks everyone! She also got the hang of opening birthday presents, and the fact that we say “Happy Birthday”. Now whenever she sees a parcel she says “More happy?”. Cute, but deadly.
Blaise also skipped the birthday party thing for his 1st birthday. We nearly went to a soft-play place with some friends, but people weren’t available when we were, so we just stayed home. He loved his gifts though, so thank you everyone!
Somewhere in there was a Christmas celebration or two and maybe an adult birthday, but what do we care about those anymore?
There is in fact so much to say that there is nothing to say. There’s nowhere to start. We spend all our time looking after little kids and working. That’s about the size of it. Bruce and I look older every day. The kids keep getting taller and growing out of their clothes.
We have been fairly awful at updating this blog, but with two toddlers and no sleep time it’s not actually surprising. I hear there’s a point where the parents get sleep again? Anyway, our little family is lovely and we’re enjoying life generally. By the way, videos don’t embed nicely to this blog, so if you want to “meet” the kids, browse the collection of Blaise’s videos and Gwen’s videos.
Feel free to check out our pages about what Blaise is like and what Gwen is like. I do try to update those every few months just so we remember the details. Also feel free to check the hall of fame to see our list of visitors over the years. Other than that we have photos. I will now studiously sprinkle some through this article. Click them for the rest of the sets.
