Dad for a year

My twins, known online as Smidge and Smudge, have just reached their first birthday, which means I’ve been a father for a year.

It’s been a relatively quick year, due to the twins having spent the first three months in hospital, but overall it’s been a good one. They’ve come through all the setbacks they suffered due to being extremely premature, and despite being low weight, they are progressing well.

The next year with them will be difficult, as I’ll be the stay at home Dad while Katie goes back to work for three days a week for now, going up to five days once the company workload increases.
