Oscar & Caitlin - week 1

Oscar & Caitlin - home from hospital

You can tell Caroline had arrived by the time this photo was taken. Giveaways include bathed babies and tight swaddling. Caroline created order where there had been chaos, calm where there'd been panic.

We had two nights at home with Oscar and Caitlin before Caroline arrived. I was counting the hours down on the day she arrived - I didn't even know how to change a nappy, what to do with an express machine or how to use steriliser. And, having moved house three weeks before the babies were due, the place was in a bit of a state.

It wasn't long before Caroline had ironed out the creases (literally - ironing being something of an obsession of hers). I still miss her.
