As the wave of pain finished I calmly made my way into the living room, I managed to tell Jacob to get everything ready to leave because the baby was coming before I was hit by another contraction. My god, I forgot how much this hurts!
Mum and Dad agreed to watch Kayleigh for us while we were at the hospital, we thanked them and left for the hospital. I was feeling nervous at having to go through the pain again, but I know my little bundle of joy would be worth it. I couldn't wait to meet him or her.
After eight hours of labour Mason finally came into the world weighing 6lb 8oz, followed eight minutes later by his sister Melody weighing 5lb 1oz. We were shocked it was twins, but were so delighted at the same time. The doctors said that Melody was a little on the small side but seemed perfectly healthy so we could take them both home.
I guess we were still in shock when we got home because we both just stood in the hallway holding them for a few minutes before realising we were now parents of three precious angels. Kayleigh was going to be so happy when she woke up and saw her brother and sister, I can just imagine the smile on her face.
The next few days passed in a blur of night time feeds, nappie changes, snuggling and soothing the twins, while making sure Kayleigh wasn't left out. It was hard work, but I loved my growing family more and more as each day passed. Mason was such a hungry baby, always wanting a bottle every two hours, whereas Melody would just lay gurgling happily to herself in her crib, although they were twins their personalities were already so different. I couldn't wait to see what they were like when they were Kayleigh's age.
I gave Lily a call and we arranged it for the twelfth, which was next Saturday. Seeing as the back garden had been modified we agreed to have it at the house and hire a buffet and trampoline for the kids. Me and Jacob had planned to go out and buy Kayleighs presents yesterday, but Mason was a little sickly and I couldn't bare to leave him. He seemed much better today though, so I called the sitter and asked her to come over as soon as she could and watch them while we popped to the store. I made sure both the twins and Kayleigh were settled so that when she got here we could just leave. Charlie arrived half an hour later and headed straight up to play with Kayleigh. She was so good with the kids, I had no worries when I left them with her.
I payed Charlie and said goodbye, before rushing up the stairs to say hello to my babies, while Jacob made a start on the dinner. Kayleigh was napping in her crib so I left her sleeping, I picked up Mason and snuggled him close inhaling his wonderfully sweet baby scent as I did, before giving him his bottle. Once he finished I placed him into his crib and walked over to Melody's, as per usual she was just laying there gurgling away. I scooped her into my arms and gently lifted her into the air while blowing raspberries onto her tummy, she let out a small giggle as I pulled her close and gave her her bottle.
I managed to have a nice relaxing bath before the twins wanted their 11pm feed. I fed Melody while Jacob fed Mason, once they were full and contented we tucked them in and headed to bed ourselves, I was shattered, looking after three children under five is hard work.
Seeing as Jacob had today and tomorrow off work we thought it would be nice to take the kids to the beach for the afternoon. We sat and made sandcastles with Kayleigh while the twins had a kick about on a blanket. While I gave the twins their bottles Jacob took Kayleigh in for a little paddle, I could hear her laughing as the waves splashed at her feet, I couldn't help but let out a little giggle too her laugh was so infectious.
It was starting to get dark so we headed home, so that we could get the kids bathed and in bed, we had a busy day tomorrow.
Stay tuned for chapter 9 :)

Welcome To The Stone Family Blog.
I would like to introduce you to my founder, Jenna Stone and her husband Claude Stone.
Jenna's traits are:
Her favourite's include:
Jenna is an artistic person, and can always be found painting her worries away. She wants a big family, she say's a home filled with laughter is the place to be. When she isn't painting she can be found either out in the garden or at the library reading. Being Eco-friendly she likes to recycle, take quick showers and just generally take care of the planet. She still remembers the first day she met Claude like it was yesterday. He was walking past as she left the library, and her being the bookworm that she is had her head stuck in her favourite book and bumped into him. Claude caught her and as their eyes met they instantly felt the attraction towards one another, and from that day they never left each others side.
Claude's traits are:
His favourites include:
Claude is very athletic, most days he can be found working out at the gym or with his family.He is also very charismatic and loves to make friends and meet new people. He is very career orientated and because he is a schmoozer he makes friends with colleagues very quickly. He is very family orientated and would love 4 or 5 children. He has always wanted a large family and never thought it would be possible until he met Jenna. He and Jenna were engaged within 6 months of meeting, they had a whirlwind romance and neither could imagine life without the other.
What will the future hold for the Stone's.
