Following my previous post about their birth story, I went through the photo "archives" of Charlotte and Daniel and selected three photos that I think best depicts their growth from then till now.

Lying on the picnic blanket outdoors. They were so little and we were beyond exhausted. Here we are at one of our locals on a picnic rug basking in the warmth of the winter sun. It was surreal because we couldn't believe we were finally parents!

They were on the cusp of walking at this point.We took them to a park a few suburbs away from home. They were reluctant at first to explore the playground and soon warm to the prospect with our encouragement.

They are walking, running and jumping! They enjoy outings, being in cafes, engaging in conversations and are great mates to each other. Charlotte is a girlie girl who can handle rough play and Daniel is a definite boy who loves his cuddles!
Once again, I cannot believe how rapidly they are growing and developing. It makes me deeply grateful to be able to spend quality time with them and create memories as a family.
