Pretty much. Unfortunately. Mine are 19 months & we still wait for daddy to come home to go on walks without the stroller. It's just too much to run after 2 babies alone.
Do you have a small, enclosed park nearby? I am able to take my girls to the park and let them wander there. It's small & enclosed, so there's no real danger. Although I've found it's nearly impossible to socialize with the other moms because I'm so busy making sure both girls are safe.
I'm a few months ahead of you in terms of our twins' age, but things haven't gotten too much easier in public. I made the mistake of taking them to a bookstore a few weeks ago & letting them out of the stroller. They both ran in different directions. One was 3 isles over before I could get to her. It really freaked me out (& I don't freak out too easily, but there was a creepy guy wandering around the store).
The thing I am noticing that's become much easier, however, is how much they play together now. They always have done things together (parallel play), but they interact a lot more now. They really enjoy each other's company. It makes me so happy to see them together. I feel really jipped that I'm not a twin.
