My babies are growing up!

I know I still haven’t done the post I promised about Little H. So here it is in some form. (Not exactly how I planned it!)

Yesterday I asked Mr. B to take the sides off of MJ’s cotbed and turn it into a toddler bed. Naturally that meant that last night’s bedtime felt epically long… I let Mr. B sit in with them for 40 minutes and then I took over so he could go for his run.
Mj was loving his new found freedom in the bedroom (that didn’t come at the cost of him climbing out of his cot, which luckily he only did twice, in one night and then learnt his lesson!) I had to remind myself that it was the same when Little H had his turned into a bed too. Except then we had the benefit of MJ was still little and in our room so if he did wake up he soon got bored and took all of his toys back to bed with him. Whereas MJ gets bored and then remembers that Henry is right there! Although it is cute hearing him say big brother wake up!

Last night as I sat next to him rubbing his tummy and watched him fall asleep it felt like my heart was melting.  And I look over at little H already asleep (snoring away) and I melt some more.  These quiet moments are the ones I want to remember as opposed to the constant bickering that they seem to be doing quite a bit at the moment.  So I tiptoe out and stop and look at them both and have to hold back a sob. Even though little H has not long turned 3, and MJ is only 1 and a half they seem so grown up all of a sudden.
Little H really looks like a little boy, and considering this time last year he only said maybe 5 words all of a sudden has a vast vocabulary and manages to use words in context. (The other night he said mummy very pretty like princess. I didn’t even know he knew the word princess!!)
MJ is starting to loose his baby chunkyness and is trying to repeat words when you say them and is a lot more steady on his feet now, and is into everything!

Their room now looks like a little boys room, Mr. B took down their animal pictures and put up their names from MrsJosieK and both cots are now beds, and Mr. B is already talking about when we get them bunk beds!

These aren’t great pictures because I’ve avoided their names on the wall but it really isn’t a babies room anymore!

Little H’s end of the room (you can kind of see the blue behind the wardrobe) now that I have a sewing machine I’m hoping to make some blackout curtains for in there, make it a bit darker in there for summertime! (That picture was taken around 7pm right before bedtime so it stays quite light!)

Mjs end is the one that makes me feel sad. He’s my baby and he’s gone into a bed!!! (Oh and we’re loving our MagicBumpers which I ordered in preperation for MJ going into a bed but I got a pack of 4 so that I could get rid of the lindam bed guard that little H had which got in the way of storytime. Now they both have the bumpers and they’re brilliant!

….

I’ve totally lost my train of thought!
I want to talk about how my babies are growing up and how sad that makes me feel and why I’m the mama that I am, but that is a whole new story so for tonight I’ll leave it at that, but my “I didn’t know what prematurity was” post will be soon I’ve already got the pictures ready to go :)
