our little seven month olds
Wow, has it really been almost four months since I posted anything here? Time seems to play tricks on you when you are attempting to parent two little ones. Sometimes the days seem to creep by, yet the weeks and months pass too quickly.
The twins are now 7 months old. Though they can be exhausting, they continue to be such a blessing to A and me. Each day, amid the diapers and bottles and craziness, there are moments when they both look at me and laugh, and I stop to remember how truly fortunate I am.
Baby boy is completely nuts! He is now army crawling...his belly stays on the floor, but he is super fast. We've already had to take the curtains down and are doing a major childproofing bonanza this weekend. Baby girl has no real interest in moving yet, but gets very annoyed with brother when he comes over and starts eating her toes/hands/head. They are both sitting on their own, they love toys, and they love bouncing in their jumperoos.
They are growing up and learning so much. At Christmas, they didn't even look at their presents. On Sunday, they actually sat and went through their Easter baskets, looking for new things to play with!
They never got the nursing thing at all, so I'm still pumping. We have been feeding them 2/3 breastmilk and 1/3 formula (plus two meals of solids per day), but we are running out of freezer space so lately we've decreased the formula to just 1/6. I must say, I am pretty proud of myself for pumping this long. I feel like my body did a lot of things wrong in this process, but this is something it got right.
