Thought Vomit...

  • Life with twins in exhausting, in the absolute best way. 
  • We are a traveling freak show. So much so, that when I go out and don't get stopped by at least three people I start to feel odd. 
  • Watching my husband interact with our boys is one of my favorite things. 
  • We know we want another baby, and I am absolutely terrified it wont happen. I think we're leaning toward not doing another fresh cycle for several reasons that I might share more about in another post someday, so its up to three frozen embryos, a spontaneous pregnancy or a change of heart about another fresh cycle waaaay down the road. 
  • Laundry. There is A LOT of it. 
  • Ever since the boys started sleeping through the night and dropped a feeding I've needed to be a lot more careful about what I eat. Gone are the days of this nursing mama eating anything and everything she wants!
  • The boys are both drooling a TON, and constantly have their hands in their mouths. I am afraid for my nipples. 
  • Once the boys started sleeping through the night it became very difficult to wake up with one of them in the wee morning hours. On the nights it happens I find it much harder than it was when they were tiny newborns-  I guess its because back then I expected it. 
  • One week until Christmas. We just ordered our Christmas cards. Whoops!
  • I think we're going to transition the boys from the co-sleeper (its a mini) into one of their cribs in our room this weekend. I have a feeling there isn't going to be a whole lot of sleep going on... for any of us!
  • We are working on changing our spare room/office over to a playroom for the boys. It will be really nice to have a space to keep some of the larger toys. 
  • My hair is falling out like crazy. We figured out my thyroid was way off which could be a contributor, or it may just be postpartum hair loss.... either way, no thank you. 
  • I really need to sew some stockings for the boys....again, Christmas is in ONE WEEK.
  • We've traveled for Christmas every year we've been married. This year we are not making the 2 hour drive. It will be just the four of us, and I'm looking forward to the nice relaxing holiday. Hubs is taking the whole week off, so we will have daddy home for a nice chunk of time!
  • The boys take 4 or 5 one hour naps per day.. I can't wait until we can drop a couple of those and make a couple of the others LONGER! It is so hard to get things done!
  • I would not change a single thing about my life right now. I am so deliriously happy- it makes me realize just how unhappy I was in the years we were struggling to get pregnant.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as a family of 4! An intimate week with hubby at home sounds perfect. We would like to make a playroom out of our finished basement too...and get our living room back! I'm glad to hear you sound so content and happy right now. :)

Oh the baby least they sleep for an hour ;-) I do a little happy dance when I get a WHOLE HOUR, lol. Sounds like things are going great =)

N was drooling like crazy around that age too, but his first tooth didn't pop through until he was 8 months old...then he got 5 in a month. He's not a biter during nursing though, I think some babies are and some aren't. I'll cross my fingers for you that your boys aren't!
