|Love those edible toes!|
Changes continue these past few weeks and we're adjusting accordingly.
I'm adjusting to slowing down and realizing the lack of an agenda is actually a good thing. But also am adjusting to racing through tasks so I can actually get a few things done on borrowed time.
I'm adjusting to the fact that you might see my boys playing outside in their underwear at any given time of the day. Sometimes I just can't meet their needs fast enough...
I'm adjusting to getting a lot done with one arm and have gotten used to the permanent cramp in the other because Little Lady doesn't like to be put down. As a result, I'm mastering the Ergo and Moby baby carriers.
|Yes, I really look that tired. Eeek.|
I'm adjusting to the boys' latest milestone: COMPETITION. Everything is a race or someone always has to be in front! It's nothing short of maddening because inevitably a fight ensues. However, with twin boys I'm pretty sure this phase isn't going away anytime soon. If you missed my Facebook status the other day it read, "The boys are fighting over who is looking at who..." Next their going to tell me "He's breathing my air!" You get the picture.
|Cue the song "Anything you can do I can do better...!"|
I'm adjusting to this growing peanut, who's not going to stay little for long! Up 2lbs in two weeks at her last check up, we've seemed to get some feeding issues under control. So long size 'newborn!' Of course she still sleeps A LOT during the day despite my efforts to stir her awake, and the predictability of our nights vary, but they're do-able. Ready to play for 1-2 hours after she's done with her middle of the night feeding, she's bound to get her internal clock straight soon enough. Yes, just let me believe she will.
And I'm also adjusting to the boys and I being hot and cold with each other lately...sometimes blissfully playing, listening, and cooperating; other times yelling, screaming, arguing, and throwing a fit. Recently we enjoyed breakfast together and I got two 'thank yous!' when I served their cereal. I also got a 'You look pretty, Mommy!' from Garrett, so yea, my month has been made. Yesterday's trip to our old stand by - the children's museum - and today's jaunt to the outdoor mall's water fountains were both successes, where they could burn off energy and I could peacefully feed their sister. There's a trend here...when baby is calm, mama is calm. I guess I'm adjusting to relinquishing control too.
But anytime I get a "That was a lot of fun!" from the backseat on the way home, I know I've done ONE thing right for the day.
