Ah, my little buddy-babies. That title is for you. Along with all the developmental leaps and bounds you’re making, you just never settle down. Never. You’re no longer content to keep nursing as I pull up a blog page. You’re all, “OOH. WHAT’S THAT? CAN I PUT IT IN MY MOUTH?”
And no, darlings, you may not put my friends’ blogs in your mouth. Sorry.
Ah, well. I’m getting through my Google Reader, bit by bit. I have approx. 130 posts bookmarked that I want to come back to and comment on. I got through ten today while they napped. I’m getting to all of you, I promise. I’d just wipe the Reader and call it a loss, but there are such important things going on in everyone’s lives and I have things I want to share about it. It’s happening, it’s just slow.
In the mean time, thank you for your comments and commiserations on the sleeping stuff. I really can’t wait for them to sleep better. That’s probably been my biggest thing since they were born. I just need sleep, and it just isn’t happening.
I did manage to survive my first serious-knock-you-down illness as a twin mama. H and I both got a vicious stomach virus plus respiratory symptoms that landed me in the ER on Sunday afternoon (due to the horrid cramping I was having, I seriously thought I might have either a bad ovarian cyst or an ectopic– yeah, an infertile husband and a tubal ligation and nursing twins, and I somehow still thought it could be pregnancy-related. HAH.) Luckily, it wasn’t influenza, just a really bad virus, that very luckily passed during the late evening Sunday. So glad I exposed myself, my husband and my infant twins to the emergency room. Awesome.
Lastly, I really, really need to post more often. I’ve gotten so lazy, and I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever post something that isn’t a complaint. So, in an effort to remedy that, I’m putting this here so I won’t forget: I want to take a picture a day of both boys by themselves for the month of February. And I’d like to make them GOOD pictures, too, not just especially sweet snapshots. I figure this has the dual purpose of capturing a slice of life with the babies, but also getting me back in the habit of my hobby. And so, you know, I can also post them here and remark on them and thus get back to blogging more regularly, too.
So. Is that a belated New Years resolution? Perhaps.
And now, the beasts have been held off as long as possible. Back again soon with remarks on Thrush The Fourth and my first post-partum period (NURSING TWINS. WTF, body…), and, of course, the much belated seven-month update.
