twins timeline

Changes in Mahi-Meha since their birth on 18th May 2005

This timeline is made of pictures of my twin daughters, Mahi and Meha. It shows how they have changed since their birth. Click on thumbnails for larger pictures. Pictures of a month are added in the first week of the next month.

The thought of making a timeline came to me in September 2005 when I first saw the two pictures of August 2005 kept in this timeline. They were looking so different in spite of it being the same month! I found it fascinating and the Twins Timeline was born 3 months after Mahi-Meha were born.

The updates to the timeline were stopped once they were 3 years old.

Mahi Meha
Got surrounded by their favourite soft toys, dolls and purses. Most of the time at home is spent around these toys and their imagination around them – “dolly is thirsty/hungry”, “dolly is afraid of fire-crackers”, “dolly is being naughty”, “dolly is sleeping”, “I am putting off the dolly to sleep”, “I am giving her a bath” … and what not! Almost all things that we do to them they do to their “dolly“. Girls and their dolls!! 😀

Here they are busy in one of their favourite play. They just love to play in sand with their beach set. Even a couple of hours are not enough and they have to be dragged out of the sand pit under some pretext or the other.

The bonhomie between the two is ever increasing. Although they have their fare share of fights, they are very fond of each other. Some people say it’s their karma, after all they have been together even before they were born. Meha is kissing Mahi in the left pic and vice versa in the right one.

Mahi Meha
It was jungle day at school and here are the tigers! Whiskers made with eye-liner, yellow dress with black ribbons stiched on the dress as stripes and a paper plate with a tiger face. The credit for the make-up goes to the ever creative masi (maternal aunt), Reena. 🙂

Rakshabandhan celebrations. Mahi enjoys getting dressed like this. Although Meha is smiling here, she gets irritated soon. She prefers her jeans and tops. Tomboy! 😀

They turned two on 18th May. An unexpected cyclone in Srinagar, Kashmir (we were on a vacation) blew away our plans of the birthday celebrations. However, here are the cakes which they could not cut.

They now talk a little. So they not only fight and play together but also talk to each other now. 🙂

Mahi is in pink and Meha is in green. This is a glimpse of what they keep doing all throughout the day. They are getting naughtier day by day. 🙂

The joy is evident on their faces.

They are improving. They still fight a lot. But now they have slowly started to realise the importance of each other’s presence. They have started sharing things. Sometimes they also play together. Now I realise how good it is for them that they are twin sisters. They will have each other for company all through their lives. Hope they get along well. Touch wood! 🙂

Now they enjoy watching and imitating animals. They are getting more savvy. Jeans, top, purse, hair pin, anklet and will wear shoes soon.

It is really very difficult now to click their pictures because they are extremely restless. It is all the more difficult to click them both together. These are 6 attempts to click them together “properly”. These pictures are taken in Lonavala on their (and our) first holiday since their birth. 🙂

In one of their many similar night-dresses. Their mischivousness shines through their faces. Everyone heavs a sigh of relief when they go to sleep. 🙂

  1. Thanks everyone 🙂

    I think this would be my only comment here and will not keep posting “thank you“s to keep this clutter free. But I read (and relish :D) each and every comment posted here. Whether I mention it henceforth or not my heart-felt thank you notes can be safely assumed after every comment 😉
