With the addition of baby Joanne and her twin brother James, the Potter household was officially full. Thankfully Penny had the help of Eddard, Fleur, and Ginny because juggling two toddlers and two infants was proving to be a lot of work.
Hermione wasn’t too happy that she had two new baby siblings taking up all of Penny’s time and attention.
But Irma was okay with it as long as she had some music to distract her.
Apparently she wasn’t the only one in the house who loved to boogie down to some sweet jams.
But no matter how busy Penny was with the twins, she always made time for bedtime stories and tuck-ins at night.
In the morning, the girls had breakfast in bed. They were sooooo hungry that they didn’t want to go downstairs to eat.
On the weekends, everyone took shifts to keep each other sane. One would be sleeping, while the other three would take care of the little ones. Fleur made sure James and Joanne were full and happy…
While Ginny cleaned breakfast crumbs from Irma’s hair.
Two new cribs were bought to replace the older ones. After 11 babies, they’d become a bit messy and tattered.
Penny also replaced the old dollhouse with a brand new castle! The girls were so thrilled and forgot all about the attention-sucking-little-siblings for a bit.
Ahh potty training. Everyone’s favorite activity. Luckily Hermione was an independent little lady, so she mostly taught herself.
The babies were finally asleep, and both girls were calm, so Fleur had a bit of a nap while Eddard finished up some paintings.
Hermione was OBSESSED with their new dollhouse. ❤
Penny got in a quick workout while she could. She had to keep in shape to chase two toddlers around.
Hermione seemed to forget all about Crookshanks, so Irma claimed him as her own. We’re still hoping that one day we can adopt some pet kitties…. but no luck yet.
Bedtime for the girlies… and screaming time for the babies,
And finally everyone was able to sleep through the night for the very first time.
Bright and early, the girls woke up ready to learn and play.
They look like they’re plotting something…
Hermione found Crookshanks again and remembered why she loved him so much. ❤
Somehow Irma got downstairs into the basement with a plate of food. Sneaky little one!
After a long day of playing, learning, and eating, the girls took a nap on the sofa together while Penny made some surprises in the kitchen.
It’s birthday time! First up was Fleur with her delicious strawberry cake.
Right after was Hermione with her cherry cake! Happy Birthday ladies!
With new birthdays comes new bedroom remodels, too! Hermione and Ginny got to share a room now.
And even though Eddard and Fleur were young adults, they saw how much help their mother still needed and decided they’d be okay sharing a room together and helping out for at least a bit longer.
Sleep tight, Potter family. ❤
