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!
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
