What It Means to Have Two Babies at the Same Time

Only one pregnancy but two babies! One pregnancy but a lot more risk, worry, and monitoring. Both mom and dad get to hold and hug a baby. No jealousy. If multiple visitors come over, there are two babies to hold and snuggle. Babies all around! Every time I give one baby a big hug, I... Continue Reading →

Things Right Now

I have mentioned the hugging in a couple other posts. But seriously. It is the best thing. Especially when I pick them up at daycare: when they see me, they get this big smile, walk over to me, and put their arms around me. * Babies have started getting into our trash cans. They know...

Getting Ready for Christmas

Plus of course, the babies don't... Continue Reading →

They have flown by at a snail's pace. Sometimes I try to remember last year, the experience of two... Continue Reading →

Sleep, sleep, sleep

The babies' sleep regression lasted a little less than three weeks. It was the same kind of regression they had earlier this year (the 4 month sleep regression that hit them around 5.5 months; this 9 month regression hit around 10 months). As far as these things go, it probably wasn't too awful--an hour to... Continue Reading →
