Three and Three

As I mentioned the other day, we have 3 birthdays in a week so I hope you don't mind me indulging in yet another consecutive birthday post.

So my little boys are three. This means we are no longer a house with babies or toddlers. Sniff. Instead we are a family with 4 little people.

It's hard to believe Little Buddy and D were ever this small and vulnerable.

Because they are now such delightful, cheeky and determined little men.

D is on the left and Little Buddy on the right

There was cake with 3 candles each to blow out. I probably should have made two cakes to be politically correct but there were PLENTY of lollies to go around (see, slack mum!). See how the cake is decorated with all their favourite lollies here?

Well this is how we found the cake in the morning! Just a small indication of the shenanigans these two get up to when no one is watching (or rather when mummy & daddy are still in bed waiting for their morning coffee!!).

These 2 are the best buddies in the world. I love that we put them into their own beds at night but they think it's funny to hop into each other's bed in the mornings. They think it's funny to blame each other for things too, "Little Buddy did it!", "No, D did it!". I never know who does it! Too many shenanigans to list here.

To our Little Buddy, who is obsessed with trains, lego and food and his sister's necklaces. We love your sensitive and caring nature, your little 'face' drawings, your singing and dancing prowess, your quiet creativity and your Koala Bear hugs. Happy Birthday Mate!

To our gorgeous D, who is equally obsessed with trains and lego and food. You are The Boss, determined, fast as lightning, independent, stubborn, sometimes a cranky-pants, a born leader, loyal to your Little Buddy who you like to think you are older than but really he was born first. Happy Birthday Mate!

We love you guys!


  1. "oooh!"
    she says as she wipes a tear away

  2. Awww happy birthday to the kids! You have an adorable family. So very cute!

  3. Little buddy & D are gorgeous.
    My twin boys are most days best friends but now they have sibling rivalry and squabbles in the mix.
    They are bring a lot of laughs and they have been lost in IKEA too but no code 300 for us.PHEW !
