Things I Love Thursday: Part Two

My niece and nephew, Harriet and Edward Lancaster. Born 25th March 2011 (Yep – they were one last weekend!)

These two are probably the most exciting/best thing to happened within my close family in recent years. Ever since I found out my sister was pregnant, I just *knew*, just had a feeling it was twins. She didn’t believe me. The night before her scan, I dreamt it was twins – wahey me! I did think up until about 7 months that it would be two boys, I’m not sure why, I just did. Emily & Philip didn’t find out the flavour until birth (they knew one was a boy, silly scanner person told them), and clearly, one was a boy and the other a girl.

Harriet & Edward were born late evening, on the Friday. On Saturday, my parents dropped me off at Uni while they went to visit. I was on top of a mountain on Sunday when I got emails with the first pictures – I showed them to everyone! So proud of my sister, so so so happy for her and Philip.

A year later, and I was supposed to be on a field trip that ended the day before their First Birthday. For reasons previously stated, I didn’t go, so I got to spend some time with the H & E a few days before their birthday. Both Harriet and Edward are doing so well, they’re really clever and advanced for their age! Not bad considering they were prem.

I can’t wait for them to get a bit bigger so we can take them on adventures (read; so I can play in the kiddies section at Drayton Manor).

They make me muchos happy, and Harriets smile is by far the cutest thing I’ve seen in ages. Here’s hoping my sister provides me with more!
