Since I can't seem to find much time to post lately, I thought I'd share some of my current thoughts/events lately.
I love our girls (all three of them) more than anything.
Seraphina needs an MRI when she reaches 4 months and I know I will be a nervous wreck when they have to put her under for that. (update on that later)
I finally got the twins on a schedule today until we reached the dreaded 6:00 hour in the evening. What's with the evening hours where the twins just go crazy crying for no reason? I'm convinced they are just tired.
The twins were weighing in at 10 lbs even and 10 lbs 12 oz at their 2 month appt and had their first shots since the hospital. They were not happy at all with the shots and the entire event really wore them out. They slept almost all day.
The girls are cooing and smiling like crazy, even at 5:00 in the morning when I want them to go back to bed.
I have had stretches of 6-7 hours of sleep from each girl, but it's not consistent yet. Of course, they both don't have their long stretches of sleep at the same time. I've had 5 hours of sleep straight a couple of times. Yay Mommy!
The girls have been eating 4 oz every 3 hours lately and I swear, they are on a growth spurt. They rather eat than sleep lately.
Naps are still a challenge. I have to separate them during naps. Otherwise, they wake each other up. They do sleep in the same crib at night and seem to do okay then. We do have to use a white noise to help them sleep; they hear every little thing.
Speaking of sleep, I started sleeping them on their bellies lately (as I did with my first daughter) and they are sleeping better since. I know my Mom used to put me on my belly and she said that's what was recommended when I was a baby.
It's difficult to believe that I used an egg donor for our twins. It really doesn't cross my mind much, and if it does, I have no negative feelings about using an egg donor nor do I have any regrets about our choice to use one.
I feel so incredibly lucky for my family.
