The boys are growing up

Yesterday I spent the day sorting the boys clothes out. They're now in 6-9 month, and as a coincidence they reach the milestone of 6 months old tomorrow.
The first thing that's odd about this is they're actually in the clothes which match their age, I never thought this day would come so soon! When they were born they were in early baby, then first size... and probably hit 0-3 months at 3 months.
Last night I suddenly realised that Seb needs bigger sleeping bags as he's definitely cramped in the 0-6 month ones.

It's an odd feeling, looking at clothes I could never imagine them being big enough to wear and getting them ready.
It's a sad feeling packing up their clothes which are too small.

We always wanted three children but never really thought about it too much, just taking one day at a time.
Once we found out we were having twins we couldn't imagine having any more, especially after the news was gently given that having non-id twins means there's an increased possibility of further multiple pregnancies.
Having twins meant we've had to get a new car so we can fit three seats across the back, face the reality of moving 200 miles to have the support of my family, and have the financial challenge of having two of most things- after thinking we had bought enough baby equipment with Seren.
At 20 weeks we found out we were having boys, and realised all of Seren's clothes we had kept were not going to be worn again, and we'd have to stock up on boys clothes.

It was difficult parting with Seren's clothes, and more difficult now packing away the boys clothes.

Facing the reality that, the strong indication is, we won't be having any more children.
I can't imagine now having four (or five!) children, we do have our perfect family.
But to never be pregnant again, to never hold a baby so tiny and want to protect it forever.
It's just such an odd feeling.

We've got so many good times ahead, but for now, here are my teeny tiny babies:

  1. Gorgeous pictures! And they've caught up amazingly with their weight, must be very reassuring. I know that feeling about maybe not having more children. I don't think I could cope with more children but never having a little baby again makes me feel a bit sad
