teaandfairylights Sleepily nursing and looking at these beauties. Molly's been saying 'I'm glad we have our baby.' And 'She's so beautiful!' I had nothing to worry about, they're already the best of friends. 2d

teaandfairylights My big girl.
Trying to embrace September 1st by looking back at our Summer. It was a slow one this year, peppered with gatherings and walks and long days at home enjoying the garden. Molly starts School on Thursday. I just filled her closet with the uniform that will dictate what day of the week/time of year it is until she's 17. Il be a mess on her first day, thank god Jamie will be there with us. This summer has blown by way too fast. But I am looking forward to snuggling my girls wrapped up in knits, preparing the back garden for evenings roasting marshmallows, and finally getting our log burner installed. The Summer brought Margaux, now to get excited for our first Autumn as a family of four.

teaandfairylights Fishin' it last week whilst school shopping. Last time I stood here I was heavily pregnant. I still can't get over this being a mother of two.
It's exhausting. And emotional. And amazing. It's full of cuddles and a rotation of cups of tea half drunk. Messes never to be tidied, and hair not brushed. Projects left unfinished. There are moments I feel completely pinned down and unable to play with Molly and moments I never want Margaux and my nursing snuggles to end. My blue eyed girl. My brown eyed girl. I am the luckiest 24 year old I know. These have been the best two weeks. I don't want Jamie to go back to work tomorrow. I want to stay in this bubble forever.

  •   jadehowitt Everything you wrote reminded me of when I became a mother of two xxxx 4d
  •   teaandfairylights @jadehowitt I don't want the bubble to pop!!! They become children too fast :( but then they become your best pals that converse with you so it's not all sad :P xxxxxxxx 4d
  •   jadehowitt It won't pop it just gets better, everyday I look at my two babes and how loving they are to one another it's special, I think sisters are best friends from the get go! I never wanted girls but now I wonder why I ever felt like that! Enjoy your time with them and aslong as you make it through the day tomorrow with all 3 of you alive then nothing else matters ️ ️xxx 4d

teaandfairylights I am so in love with this Bunny.
Spending our bank holiday being poorly. Molly has been exhausted and Marmar has a stuffy nose and it's breaking my heart. She's being such a brave soul though. These are the days il yearn for when they're all grown up. Rain batting the window while we have sofa snuggles. Days spent in pyjamas eating food from the slow cooker and sipping tea. Feeling full of love

  •   my_little_dumplings I'm finding it so hard! I'm still 2st above my pre-pregnancy weight! Breastfeeding isn't making my weight drop like last time. Haha. You look amazing regardless. Xxxxx 2w
  •   joannamatronic I'm glad I'm not the only one! It's taken me much longer to lose the baby weight second time around. I've lost it all now plus more but there were days I just couldn't understand why it was coming off so slowly! You look a damn sight better than I did after I popped 2w

teaandfairylights Sleepy morning girls.
Molly's been learning that singing to Margaux calms her down during a bum change

  •   sarahrevely I just have to say that I think I followed you on Tumblr before your first pregnancy, and watching Molly grow into the most sweetest girl has been such a privilege. I've been meaning to say this for a while but never got round to it! 2w
  •   teaandfairylights @sarahrevely thank you so so much. That's so kind of you to say measuring time by how fast she's growing up is horrendous haha! I can't believe I was writing that so long ago!! xxxxxx 2w
  •   sarahrevely Absolutely anytime, I truly think you're both brilliant parents (I don't go around saying that much, trust me!) who've raised a gorgeous little girl, and I have no doubt another one too and I just wanted to let you guys know that! I know it's crazy 😬, I've certainly changed so much since 2010/2011 xxxxx 2w

teaandfairylights #widn tagged by @lately_leah - I was in the middle of feeding my little dinosaur. I love feeding pictures, but not ones I've taken. I've had some soup, the first hot meal in days and I'm ready to hand her to papa to hopefully get an hours kip in before the night shift begins! 3w

teaandfairylights The OP (original princess) a few days before Margaux arrived on the scene.
Friday was a rough day for this girl. She's my best friend but our patience was tested, and the whole day was full of warnings and tantrums. Since the initial shock, she's been amazing. She had the most beautiful cuddle with Marmar this morning. The novelty of being a big sister has definitely worn off, but she's doing ok. Carving out an hour each morning to have breakfast one on one has made a huge difference, and I can't wait for our dining chairs to arrive on Tuesday so I can set her up crafty stations every few hours. It kills me that she might feel left out or less important. Splitting my time as well as finding time to eat, sleep and heal is unimaginably hard, and I dread Jamie going back to work. But, then it will be school and she'll soon forget a time without her sibling. Being with my sister on Thursday, and calling my brother together from the hospital reminded me how amazing it is that these girls will be together and on each other's team forever

teaandfairylights Looking more like a two month old than a two day old baby. She's such a little pig. I'm kind of obsessed with her

Thank you so much for all the kind messages they've been so lovely to read at 1am, 2am, 3am...
