Well, the last 12 days has been very interesting indeed. They sleep probably 3 hours at a time and feed consecutively (thank God!). I love them with all my heart. I can already tell they are different as night and day - Taylor is high maintenance, a very greedy eater (in an amazingly cute way - she snorts as she eats 3-4 oz at a time), and loves to be held. Avril is so laid back, snacks when she eats (1 oz every hour or so) and loves to be swaddled in the swing. I too fear giving one more attention over the other, but they don't seem to mind yet (I think all they care about is a clean diaper and a full belly). Bottom line, so far so good. I would like a little more sleep though (the most I've gotten at a time is ONE 6 hour session). The rest is like 3-4 hours at a time...
Oh well, they're soooooooooooooooooooo worth it. <3 My DH already said "let's have another one." I was ready to punch him in the face. HAHA.
Krista - I know you saw these on fb, but here is a pic of "sister time."
You're doing amazing Mama. I have to ask, how bottles do they go through in a day? And yes, I saw the pics and your babes are so cute my kids didn't look that cute when they were born! Congrats and I'm so glad you are adjusting well.
Such a cute pic! I am glad you are getting some sleep already! That is awesome!

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