The twins are now almost two months old!  Where has the time gone?  They are starting to sleep longer stretches at night but we are still getting up for feedings....sigh!  It is crazy how your body actually adjusts to getting up in the middle of the night. The first few weeks it was excrutiating but now I can admit it is so much easier. Don't get me wrong, some nights I am a walking zombie but still able to get up much easier then the first few weeks that the girls were home.  I will also admit that secretly I can get a lot done in the time after the baby has eaten and is getting ready for bed.  I usually pump, write my blogs (yes that is right, usually in the middle of the night), put some bottles in the sterilizer and now I have started throwing a load of laundry in.  I will in no way be getting up once the babies start sleeping through the night but for now it is nice to have that little bit of time where the house is completely quiet and it is easy to get a few tasks done.  With that being said, my favorite part of getting up during the night (oxymoron I know) would have to be the newborn snuggles.  You can look down at the babies and they are just so peaceful looking.  A newborn snuggled up to you has got to be the best feeling in the world!  So yes I am sleep deprieved right now but when you look down and see little faces like this, it makes it so much easier!


  1. I get it for sure. Getting up in the middle of the night for feedings is SO HARD but their adorable little newborn faces and snuggly bodies are just irresistible.
