hi mamas- i can't believe the girls will be 12 weeks old this week, but it's true. i think this is my first time posting here since their birth (it's all been such a blur). i think things are starting to settle down and we are getting on more of a routine so maybe i will be able to read and post here more often :)


we have been breastfeeding exclusively and it's going swimmingly, but it took a good 8 weeks before i could nurse without pain. we had some latching issues and a tongue tie but the girls are old pros now and we don't have any issues. one of them is *almost* sleeping through the night, usually just waking once or twice to nurse. the other lady sleeps til 1 or 2 and then is up hourly- owch.


i'm still trying to get a handle on the logistics of getting out of the house more often, but it's harder than i expected it to be.


i hear them waking up so i better run, but i'm hoping i will be around more!

OMG they are adorable!!! I love it when people post baby pics-thanks!


They look very different. It amazing how babies so young can look distinctly different from one another. They are beautiful!


Im glad to hear everything is going well.
