chubby tubbies


i figured it was time to write a real post. i find myself with the time as my boys are lovingly being held by their dad and their grandma which is nice for mom... not sure what i would do without either of them. don't even want to think about it. life is busy to say the least. my days fly by filled with lots of feeding, changing, burping, cuddling and basic hygene (for me). the boys are so good for the most part they sleep well at night which we are extremely thankful for. i find the days hard when i am alone as feeding two is time consuming and can be stressful when one gets food and the other has to wait - man those little tiny mouths when they scream make life a bit heartbreaking. like today all three of us cried and cried. we sing the patience song alot and i am trying to teach them that as humans we only have two hands.
yesterday our midwife came over and we weighed the boys. Ari has caught up and passed his little brother he weighed in at 8lbs 11oz. Noah is just a bit behind at 8lbs 8oz. Incredible.
Its amazing how fast they are growing. I hope you continue to read this as I promise to try to be more creative in my writing.

Are you kidding? Of course I still read your blog! Your boys look amazing, and you all are in my prayers. I can imagine that some days are overwhelming, like today. I can't wait to meet your boys and hold them close while you do something else! I hope you have some time to chat when we are home for our holidays. Love and peace to you and your beautiful family!

Heather,

I'm sure we will all continue to read your blog, since we love and care for you!!

I know you are doing a great job as a mom! It's probably the toughest job in the world... and especially with two! You are amazing to be able to handle it (despite the bad days).

I love you lots and hope to talk to you soon.

You have a faithful reader no matter what you post about! Now being a singleton mommy I have to ask a silly question. Is it possible to feed both babies at the same time? You know like one on each breast?? I really have no idea so I had to ask!

Beautiful twins! I think about what if I have 2??? It's in my husbands side of the family (his brothers are twins). It's hard I'd imagine, but such a blessing more than anything. Imagine a built in best friend forever. Lucky babies!
