Maggie: Rob took the photos again this week, these on the eve of their second birthday. We can't quite believe they are two now. Maggie had grabbed the sticky tape and was busily sticking it to herself!
Elisabeth: She has such a sweet smile.

I hope to find time this week to write a little about their birthday party, it has been a big week and both girls are asleep on the window seat, and I think I might just join them!

Maggie: hmmm, I am detecting a theme for my December portraits. The girls got to celebrate their second St Nicholas, and they are still as unimpressed by Christmas pjs. Chocolate on the other hand? They though the Lindt Santas were for cuddling though, so not sure how melted they will end up!
Elisabeth: She refers to Santa as Santa baby, always. They were pretty impressed with their loot. 
Rob took both of these photos again. 

Joining in with Jodi for the final four weeks of the 52 portraits.

We have a very busy week ahead. Grade 12 speech night and formal for the girl's older sister. Birthday party prep for Saturday. Can you believe they will be two on Friday? They can, both girls respond with a perfect "two" when we ask "how old are you going to be?"
We just started teaching them Happy Birthday, which they seem to enjoy very much. Elisabeth asks "again" so we sing it up to 10 times!

They have been very good about the tree really, they were so excited by everything, pointing out "birds", "socks", "balls", "Santa baby", and we're working on Reindeer.

Maggie: I think Christmas is going to be fun this year, we put up the tree and decorations today and the girls were highly excited.
Elisabeth: She calls the stockings socks and the baubles balls. 
Both photos were taken by Rob.

Maggie: a rare day time bath meant Rob could make the most of the light in the bath (he took both of these photos).
Elisabeth: they are always so shocked by when we pour water over their heads! They don't seem to have changed since the last bath shots in late February.

Maggie: Cheeky imp pulled a model pose.
Elisabeth: We fear we are entering the terrible twos, the pull and tug of growing independence and learning to share with each other. We've been playing umpire to a few scuffles this week. Sometimes they start off as fun, and end a bit roughly.

This week has been full of snot. Maggie came down with a cold on Sunday night and it has slowly been passed on to Elisabeth, Rob and finally me. They missed care, and Rob and I took turns of caring for them at home. But on Friday I felt so sick myself we all stayed home together. Not looking forward to picking up the extra work next week. The final rush to our month long Christmas holiday will start to ramp up from now on.
