We stopped the monthly shots at 12 months but said we’d do one at 18 and then annually.
Each time we hit these milestones I honestly feel like a bit of a rock-star! Ruth and I are pretty amazing seeing as we’ve not killed either of the twins.
As usual so thankful to God for the gift that they were to us and to everyone who has been involved in their little live so far!
Today they get to meet their Glasgow cousins for the very first time!!! This is incredibly exciting!
As usual you can see the rest of the series here: www.irishmark.net/tag/birthmonths/
My favourite #Banksy piece is "Ballon Girl", specifically the instance that appeared on the Southbank in 2002 which also had the phrase "There is always hope". The full image depicts a little girl reaching to the sky after her balloon which has escaped her grasp. On it's own, the image feels utterly hopeless but this version with the phrase transforms it. I don't know if it was the artist himself who added the phrase or whether someone else added it later but this transformation is what makes it my favourite. It's why we have a vinyl of it on our living room wall. This simple statement changes everything about the girl and the balloon and speaks of a simple but important truth that everyone needs to hear.THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!This #EasterSunday I celebrate that truth. I believe that truth exists because of what Jesus did.#HappyEaster #POTD
Many in Ireland are celebrating the #centenary of the #EasterRising this weekend and as a proud Irishman I too want to celebrate too but… The cost of life was so great. I'm a pacifist. I live in the real world and while I understand why war exists I cannot condone it. Ireland's independence came from a bloody war so while I'm glad of our independence I also remember that so many lost their lives on both sides and so many of them didn't need to. I pray for other nations in conflict and continue to hope for peaceful resolutions. #peace #lovewins #1916rising #easterrising1916 #proudirishman #POTD
Happy St Patrick's Day!He's associated with Ireland, booze and Christianity but sometimes we forget that he was also a slave.He was #trafficked from England to work. #ModernSlavery is still a massive issue. Today there are 20.9 million estimated slaves worldwide. We CAN make a difference. Charities like @HopeforJustice are making a huge difference in the UK and across the world by rescuing those being trafficked, lobbying the government about the issues surrounding #HumanTrafficking and making people aware of the signs of trafficking.On this Paddy's Day, as we remember this legendary dude, let's think on his experience as someone who was trafficked and also the millions of people currently held in slavery.I really recommended following/supporting @HopeforJustice because they are an amazing organization making a really positive difference. www.hopeforjustice.org #stpatricksday #paddysday #paddysday16 #twinsofinstagram #POTD
