    Default 6 months in

    I meant To post this here but posted it on my sept board by accident. I think thats the exhaustion setting in!
    And I'm exhausted! The babes turned 6 months on the 6th. What have I learned so far

    One baby= piece of cake, two babies=exhaustion, three babies= I don't even want to think of it, anyone with triplets you are my heros!
    I valve sleep much more
    I could now be a professional diaper changer
    Anything goes with multiples

    Before giving birth I kept hearing the first 6 months are hell I think "hell" is an exaggeration. Was it hard dealing with sleepless nights and breastfeeding two babes and having two babes needing your constant attention, yes, but its manageable. I think the first month was closer to "hell" then anything. But once I figured these babes out it did get a lot better. My only wish would be for them to STTN but I know in time that will come (if DD1 STTN so will these two).

    It's amazing how different they are. Brad is so laid back, calm, loving and has the greatest belly laugh and Kaylee is a bit of a diva but so funny and adventurous and has the greatest smile. I fall in love more every day (corny I know!).

    I just want to thank all the wonderful ladies here. Without all your words of advice and support I don't know if I would have made it through so easily.
    Here's to hoping the next 18 years are as smooth!

    Aww ... yay! Congrats on surviving 6 months!

    And that's too funny you posted about one baby being piece of cake on your month board. Oops! But so true.

    I edited that part out I think some ladies still read it. No has yelled at me yet so I might be in the clear! I was scared because there are some women on my board that love to speak their minds and if they saw that they would go crazy.

    Congrats on 6mo in. And as to some not liking your comment about one baby being a piece of cake, if they had twins, they would get it. Did I think one was easy when I had only one, sometimes, sometimes not, it was my reality, and sometimes it really sucked. lol. Then I had twins and knew how much easier only one baby really is. lol

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.

    My thoughts exactly! I actually did think one baby was a piece of cake most of the time. Sure, I was exhausted, but Isaiah was an easy baby. He had his moments in the first month, but after that life was good. Enter the twinkles, the first month was sheer survival. After that, it did get easier. However, I never feel rested. There are days I want to stay at work rather than pick up the kids and go home. Why? Because it means that I get to look at my couch and wish I could lay down, but I have to do laundry, vacuum, make dinner, make kid #1 do his homework and practice his violin, etc... There are days that I truly contemplate taking a personal day off of work just to sit in my house with no one there and just sleep and do nothing.

    Glad to know I'm not just being a wuss. Facebook kills me with all the parents of one 6 week old with the mom wearing regular-people clothing and looking rested. Screw that, dude, one's easy.

    Ha! So true! I remember sitting at the soccer field after slogging both babies in their dang double stroller through the stinking mud and crap, and hating all the moms of singletons who could put their babies in a wrap or sling and make it to the field without huffing and puffing, or feeling like they just ran a marathon. Said baby slept the entire time they were there and they didn't have to do anything, except sometimes feed them. I was trying to feed two, calm down two, and it exhausted me! There were days that I would get back in my car and I was near tears because I really didn't want to take my DS to soccer or anywhere else with both babies. Let's not even talk about my attempted trips to stores with a stroller and a cart! Let's just say that I basically did too much and did not ask DH to do enough. It is different now. The twinkles are banned from DS's gymnastics class. DH will watch them or take him.
