    Time is going way too quick. :nope: Alex is now over 6 months and i really really miss newborn Alex. I mean i enjoy him ALL the time, all his different stages especially now when he is soooo active and doing funny things all the time but i miss just being able to sit on the sofa and snuggle up with a tiny tiny Alex. Just knowing that I will never have that again with him.:cry:
    Im not broody as i dont want another baby until a few years time i just miss my baby being small.
    Anyone else feeling the same?

    gosh NO WAY NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST!!!

    Not sure if its because it was two but i really struggled with the first four months - Fynn being in NICU etc etc etc but now I LOVE IT!!!!

    Although atm I have one swinging on their chair and the other trying to rewire the TV most of the time I have never had so much fun.

    I have never been a baby person but toddlers nowwww thats where the fun begins xxxx

    If you had a hard time in the beginning especiallywith twins i can understand why you dont miss the time in the beginning. I didnt really enjoy the first couple of weeks as it was such a shock, i knew i was having a baby but you can never prepare what it will be like once the baby is out, if that makes sense.
    I am really looking forward to Alex being older and that butit makes me sad that i will never see him as a baby again. Weird i know, because thats what i am:haha:

    Haha, I don't miss my newborn Alex at all. But if you ever feel sad, go pick up a 0-3 and have a tear! lol! It's quite shocking to realize how small they really were.

    Nope! I never really liked the newborn stage. My favorite is 6 months - 12 months. And we've just started that. :D :D :D

    It is sad that they grow up so fast, but i love this stage, i can interact with him, take him out of the house withouth him screaming and i love the look on his face when he see's new things.
    We were at the mall yesterday and he totally enjoyed himself and did not want to sleep. He smiled at everyone that said hello and loved it there the all time. I will have to take him back.

    YES! I feel exactly the same. I am constantly looking at pictures of Kenny when he was newborn and really young and it makes me so sad he's growing up so fast. But then I remember how terrible I felt when he was a newborn not getting any sleep and wishing he was older, so haha! I just remind myself of that. But now he's just growing SOOOO fast!! Ugh where does time go!? :hugs:

    nope, I was tearing my hair out and my hormones were all over the place - plus Isla had bad colic. I don't miss that time one bit. I love the stage she's at now - cute and cheeky and very happy all the time :cloud9:
