Hi guys don't post a huge amount any more as not really sure where I fit in anymore? But my boys have just turned 3 months so thought I would do a quick update :-)
The past 3 months have been amazing, frustrating and I have had some of the most amazing and some of the worst times of my life.
We spent a lot of the early days at various hospital appointments as Reuben ( my bigger boy) had a tongue tie that we had snipped at 7 days old, Marcus ( my smaller boy) had to attend the prolonged jaundice clinic ( all ok and breastmilk jaundice diagnosed) Marcus also had a heart murmur so had an ECG and an echocardiogram ( still waiting on results but consultant hopeful it's innocent ) and the boys both had clicky hips which had to be scanned ( all clear and no problems) so what with that and my tracheostomy check ups I reckon we have sponsored a ward at qmc in car parking fees! But feeling quite liberated at the minute as not been to the hospital for 4 whole weeks!
The boys are really developing little personalities now and both smile and giggle and I don't think it will be too long before they roll over as both can get onto their sides! Life is super busy as I have a horse so the boys have no choice but to tag along to the yard each day and I tandem wear them in carriers ( one on the back one on the front)
We cosleep which is something I never considered doing but works for us and means we all get a good nights sleep and I am still exclusively breast feeding both babies which I am super proud of especially as they are thriving and climbing the centile charts, my husband reckons I produce gold top!
Quick shout out to all those I was on 3rd tri with hope you are all doing well :-)
Anyway here are some before and after pictures of my 2 gorgeous princes.

Fab update PP. Your boys are just beautiful! they've got that cheeky look about them that makes me suspect when they go mobile you're in for it! :-) xxx

Oh PP they are so gorgeous! What an amazing update and I have no idea how you are exclusively BF them both, you honestly must be super woman!!
I know this is going to sound stupid before I even write it but I can see a difference in their individual pics but in the bottom pic I would never be able to tell them apart!
So nice to see your update and I'm glad all is going well. I can sympathise on the hospital front, between GP's, HV's, paediatricians and dieticians I feel like we like at the hospital sometimes!x

Thanks for all your lovely replies, not so sure about the super mum comments, have been very lucky as my mother in law has been here staying and doing all the housework and most the cooking meaning I have been able to spend as much time as I need with the boys . Looking forward to seeing them develop over the next 3 months now!
