Where has the time gone?
The twin babies are a little over three months old now. I have to be honest, month two was HARD. I mean so hard that it made me want to run away from life.
At first I felt ashamed. “How can I feel so miserable when I’m so blessed?”I like to think of myself as a spiritual person and I knew that God gave me these babies for a reason. I just didn’t feel like I was worthy or capable of being a great mom to three.
“How was I going to divide my attention and love into three for them?”Harrison was also having some acid reflux issues. At first we didn’t know what was going on; he would just cry and cry for hours on end. But after a couple of doctor’s visit, it was ruled that he had acid reflux.He’s been taking Zantac as well as Mommy’s Bliss probiotics. Let me tell you it has done wonders. He is just the sweetest and happiest little boy now. ❤They say the moment your kids are born you just feel love and it comes naturally. That totally didn’t happen for me. I felt like I had failed as a mom, as it took time for me to find joy in the chaos.
Being waken up every 1.5-2hrs every night for almost two months WRECKS complete havok on the mind and body. At the start of month three and I am in LOVE.
They are smiling more, sleeping more and starting to “talk.” Harry is weighing 10.5lbs while Ally is a little under 10lbs. Harrison wakes up twice in the night, but Ally can sleep 6-8hrs straight before waking up. It has been A-MAZING!Sammy can even interact more with them now as they are more alert.
She’ll play music for them, read stories next to them or show them her toys. They even will all sit still to watch a movie… well enough time for me to cook dinner or do the dishes. Trolls and Finding Dory are their current favorite. The twins have started teething in the past couple of weeks so that has brought another challenge but they are now at the point where they can handle a bit of Tylenol and enjoy teethers. Harry loves this corn one that was given to us at our mini baby sprinkle.
