So I have a lot to say (!) but not a lot of time to say it.  I've been solo for over a week - my mom has been staying at her house - and I am surviving.  The twins are thriving (in my expert opinion) and over 7 pounds now.  They are getting more alert every day and have found their arms, legs and lungs! They are eating every three hours like clockwork and take about 30 minutes each to feed, burp, and change, which gives me about two hours between feedings to try to do things around the house (and sleep at night!).  That is if they are not fussing.  Today we broke out the baby carrier for the Dynamo who was just not happy until I put him in it -

He's still in it now which allows me to write this post as well as fold laundry, eat breakfast and use the bathroom! (seriously!)

In other news, battynurse sent me the most adorable baby blankets for the twins!!  They are terrific and the whole family loves them, even kitty -



Thanks battynurse!!!

Thanks for all the support on my last post.  I stopped breastfeeding altogether after I pumped for an hour and a half and produced ONE ounce.  I knew then that I was done.  I did feel a little sad about it but know I am doing what's best for me and my babies.

And just like that it's time for another feeding.  Imagine that! :)

  2. So glad you like them and glad that things are going well.
    My cats always want to sit on the blankets too. I only let them sit on the one that belongs to them but they sure try.

  3. Awesome that they're doing so well. Dom takes an hour to eat/change (sometimes 1:15) so even with twins, it sounds like you have as much "downtime" as a mom of a single which is nice since you have TWO to take care of. Isn't it awesome? All of it? Hope you're having the time of your life and that you all continue to thrive!

  4. Awww what a little cutie. I practice using the carrier/fabric with my niece and she falls asleep in that thing like no other. I'm the only one that uses it and now she's 4 months old and when she sees me putting it on she starts to smile and move around! She'll suck on the material and look around for a few minutes now and then will fall off to slumberland. So glad that yours is working for you and bottle feeding is going well also!
