Two months-

The girls are two months old today... it's been crazy here! They are sleeping much better though, they actually sleep from 11-midnight until 6-7am most nights! We're still nursing exclusively. My supply dipped a little, but the girls started cluster feeding while I started eating oatmeal every day, plus drinking more water, and well, that seems to be all I needed to do. I have Fenugreek on hand in case I need it. The girls coo a lot, they love mobiles and they are sooo ticklish. J loves her pacifier, while G would rather suck on her fist.

V is doing much better with them, although he does still get very jealous at times. I have to say considering how much change he's went through in the last 6 months, he's done very well.

As a treat we took V and the girls to the zoo for the first time this year. Oh my goodness, he freaked out over everything... he just loved it. We haven't hardly went at all since I was pregnant because it was too much walking and I had a lot of guilt about that. It was a nice treat though, he loved it so much. It was difficult having to stop and nurse and change everyone's diapers, plus physically I am still weak from the pregnancy... but I loved it. I really did. Seeing his face light up just made my day.

I'm so glad to hear an update. I am glad you are doing okay. The fact that you made it to the zoo with two small babies and a preschooler is amazing to me. Btw, your little girls are beautiful.

Wow so wish my daughter would sleep through the night like that.

AAMTB, thanks!

Rebecca, believe me I know how fortunate we are! We were having a heck of a time with sleep until two weeks ago (just 3 hours a night) and I know that most babies aren't sleeping through the night yet. I'm sure that the next growth spurt will shatter their habits, but I will savor it for now :)

My kids are 18 months apart and I think its a learning journey to figure out what activities you can do that work for everyone. Now the baby needs to nap right during prime "get out of the house' time for my son. Itry and figure out a couple of days where she gets to stay home and sleep well an then a couple for him to go and do things which is also more effort for me and then one day where we just stay home and get stuff done here. It's a balancing act. You are doing a great job!!
