Does everyone else have the feeling that time speeds up as you get older! I can't believe the girls are already over 2 years old and 2009 seems to have come and gone in a blink of an eye.
My sister (the american one) is here for a brief visit after visiting my folks for Christmas. She last saw C and E when they just turned one so she can't believe how mch they've grown. These first 2 years are magic as the babies change so quickly. We were looking at photos from the beginning of 2009 and Ciara in particular has changed so much. She is no longer a baby or even a toddler, she has metamorphosised (is that even a word?) into a little girl.
Enya still has a look of a toddler about her, the terminal cuteness of a toddler I mean. When we were up in Muenster the 2 boys (3 and 5 years old) kept fighting over who could sit next to Enya and who was Enya's friend- Ciara they couldn't care less about. Unfortunately they kept wanting to touch Enya or to give her a hug and so she kept running to me to get away from them (she is very cuddily with Z and I but needs time to warm up to strangers, even other kids).
Oh well, onward into 2010. May it treat us all well!!
