twin life five months in ..
We are alive, we aren't that tired and we didn't get a night nurse.
I was scared to death when we would tell people we were having twins because nothing positive was ever said back once we uttered those words. We got a lot of "oh wow good luck" , "bless your heart" and my favorite "that sounds like a nightmare" I won't even revisit what people said about my appearance when I was actually carrying them, it still makes me mad thinking about it. People can be really honest and for some reason it was a lot of really old men. Weird. I was so confused because all I felt was excitement. I wish I could track all of those people down and tell them how awesome it is, how sweet these babies are and how they have slept through the night since two months old in their own rooms, with no help from a nanny or night nurse.
The first three months are hard, I mean with one baby they are hard. Lots of sleepless nights, trying to figure out a routine.. etc.. but once you hit that three month mark I feel like its smooth sailing. As soon as they started sleeping through the night we were golden.
The girls really are a dream, I am sure at some point I will be like HELP ME. Some days are harder than others, I do have three kids so I feel like that is pretty standard..I really really genuinely am enjoying this so much. Twin life is pretty special and fun to be apart of and I feel really lucky that I get to experience it with this sweet crew of mine.
I also have a feeling I will go back and read this in a few months when they start to move on their own to remember how much I bragged about how easy and wonderful it has been but for now it's pretty magical.
