Now that E and A have moved into the nursery, I thought it was about time I finished off all the little styling details I've been meaning to do. The colour scheme is inspired by classic penguin books, and I've stretched teatowels on wooden frames to make pictures for the walls. Granny Jill knitted each baby a gorgeous blanket and made cushions out of teatowels.
Until last night the babies have been sleeping together in one cot, but Young Daddy and I think that they're starting to disturb each other so we separated them into their own cots for the first time. I found this really hard to do, as I've been holding onto a little daydream that one day I'll come in in the morning and find them happily babbling away to each other or holding each other's hands. In reality, I think this is unlikely to happen and it's not as if they can't chat to each other from their separate cots. Plus they're still swaddled when they sleep so there's no chance of them managing to hold each other hands! I reckon the possibility of them sleeping through (that holy grail of sleepdom that I don't believe will ever ever happen!) is greater if they're separated, and it seems better to do it now before they've really got used to being next to each other.
