Time flies! I swear I was just celebrating my 21st birthday and now I have to say goodbye to my twenties. Crazy stuff. I've hardly given it any thought since the kiddos have kept me "entertained" but now that its here I can't not notice, right? I have big plans by the way... plans that will make you want to eat your heart out.. wanna know what they are? Ok, my birthday will involve diapers, feeding and lots of kisses (drools) from my babies... awesome =)
I actually already went out on Saturday. My Mommy & Daddy (along with my 3 year old niece) watched the babies so that Jeff could take me to the movies. I HAD to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, I am a big Harry Potter fan so I was going to die if I couldn't watch it. The bummer was that it was the first time I didn't catch the midnight showing... BUT I caught it at 9am.. you know I'm a parent when I go to the movies at 9 in the morning, Jeff said we got the senior citizen special and I can't say he was wrong. Oh, I had popcorn and soda at that time too. Don't judge, my hours are completely screwed up and its dark inside so technically it was night for me. Review? It was good, I'm not completely satisfied because there were small details they left out but it was way better than Half Blood Prince. I don't want to give anything away but I will say I loved the animation of "The Tale of The Three Brothers". Anyway.... now I'm off to go take a nap (best present ever!)
People with 1 baby: it's hard but good for you for managing!
People with 3 or more babies: I don't know how you manage so I bow to you!
My twins? They are pretty good babies. They only fuss when they have really bad gas and are in pain. For the most part they are on a very close schedule which is hard because you have to take care of them at the same time. But it beats having to deal with one after the other, trust me I tried it and immediately went back to put them back on same schedule, as much as its possible of course. The one day & night they were on separate schedule I just didn't sleep and had a massive headache the next day. Its hard dealing when I'm alone but its not impossible. Hopefully their tummy's continue to adjust and their fussing time gets cut down, its not a lot of fussing but since its times two its pretty time consuming.
My days consists of this: feed/burp/change diaper/pump, sneak in some food for myself, feed/burp/change diaper/pump, maybe pee, feed/burp/change diaper/pump, massage them and give them a bath, soothe them here and there when needed, feed/burp/change diaper/pump, maybe take a nap, feed/burp/change diaper/pump, greet Jeff home and run to shower and eat and sleep, and back again to feed/burp/change diaper/pump.
It is a lot of hard work and of course I expected that and do not and will not complain because they are sooooo worth it, but I will say this: I would not have survived this far without MY Mommy. I just don't know if she does it for her baby or my babies.... the line is very thin there... and does it matter? no, cause she loves us all yadi yadi yada BUT since I'm her baby it should be all about me, right? hee hee I may be a mother but that doesn't mean I can't still be my Mommy's spoiled baby. Just saying...
Jeff is back to work so I try to let him sleep in the nights as much as possible but the poor guy still doesn't get enough sleep and I think has been a walking zombie at work. He actually tends to sit up, in his sleep, to "take care" of the babies a.k.a the blanket. He talks to the blanket and literally pats it so it can burp. He does it constantly but every time I try to videotape him he stops. I'll get him some day! And yes, I will share it =)
Seriously though, thanks Mom soooooooo much! We love you.
Thanks also to Jen for coming over when you have a chance to hook me up.
And to my kids, thanks for letting me experience mommyhood even if you demand lots and lots of attention, you are awesome and soooo worth it.
I've been a mother for a whole month already!
Its amazing, unbelievable and exhausting all at the same time =)
My babies are very smart and advanced, they can: sleep, pee, poop, and eat! Crazy, right? I know, I know... I'm very proud of them so I tend to reward them with kisses and hugs. They deserve it. They may not give Mommy enough time to do things (how selfish of them!) but they sure do give her lots of diaper changing time. Love it! Except for this one time where I gagged 3 times changing Natalia's poopy diaper, I had teary eyes and all.... that was really stinky! Noah has been a gentleman about it but then he goes more often than her so I guess that's how he makes up for putting me through poopy good times.
I have plans for pictures that I want to take of them but not enough time. Or maybe I do have time but any free moment I have I like to spend it staring into space, no kidding. Anyway, Miss Natalia and Mr. Noah are very expressive but apparently don't like to show it in pictures. We will keep trying though, no worries. Here are some more pics of my little darlings taken today:
These are from my camera, I don't have too many pics because as you can imagine I also don't have enough time to take too many pics. BUT Jeff has more on his camera and I will share those as soon as I can. For now, these are my babies:
Jeff's birthday on 10/29
The 4 of us
And these are the name blocks I made for their nursery,
