My two golden gates

As much as a fought to not have this picture taken, here it is. Our first Easter. I was feeling a bit whale like to say the least and really didn't want to be on this side of the camera. But, I am glad to have it. We have so much to be thankful for this Easter season!

I am reading (ok scanning) this book called Juggling Twins. It gives great advice and tips to handle the overwhelming feeling that having two little ones can cause. I read the chapter yesterday about feeding two newborns. Not only is it full of information, it is very funny. I find myself laughing out loud at the comparisons it makes. For example, "Feeding twins is much like painting the golden gate bridge. Once you finish feeding, burping, changing, swaddling, swaying, shushing, rocking, and pumping times two it is time to do it all over again." That is the truest statement! If I'm lucky I have an hour or an hour and half to do laundry, wash bottles, empty the diaper genie, shower, sleep, etc.

My mom left on Sunday (just a little traumatic) and Eugene is back at work full time. So, it's just me and the babies. I'm no longer in the majority... kind of scary.


So sweet, holding on to one another

Double fisting has a new meaning at our house!

Oh my goodness, I love Eugene with the two bottles and the slightly terrified deer in the headlights look that says, "Um, so am I doing this right?" And the pictures of both babies snuggled up together are so sweet. You look fabulous you brat- very un-whale like!
