I have been trying to post a bunch of photos of a month now. This isn't all the gifts and since I am typing one handed at 11 at night while a baby feeds,I suspect this post won't have any fancy links or anything, either.
I spend a lot of time like this in the middle of the night. These twins eat every two to three hours, day and night. I am awake and seeing 1AM through 5 AM more often since becoming pregnant and having twins than I ever did while in college or grad school. Babies sure do know how to make a noise in the middle of the night. It makes a frat party seem quiet.
OK, back to posting about knitting. Check out all these amazing handknits and handsewn flannel blankies! All sizes, tasteful colors and designs -my friends have good taste!
So far, we've been managing here with a hodgepodge of helpers. A few hours of paid help here and there. (not much, we can't afford a nanny or housekeeper although heaven knows one would be helpful about now)
The professor has only been working a very little bit on school stuff. Instead, we've been working flat out on baby stuff and barely keeping up. A team of kind and thoughtful friends have brought over food, held babies, run errands and generally been so supportive. I can't believe how many people have helped fold our laundry, for instance. If you're one of those people...thank you.
The dogs are continuing to adjust well and do a lot to protect and support their babies. More on that another time, I guess.
In the daytime, the babies can both look very active, bright eyed and alert. I try to remember this when there is a lot of fussing. (and since one of the guys has problems with his digestion just now and is on medication, there is a lot of fussing...) That's the update for now! I hope thisfinds you well...I'll try to tell you more stories someday soon when I am not giving up sleep to do so. :)
