Thank you to my wonderful husband for pushing me to take a staycation. I spent the night at a hotel downtown and had about 10 hours of glorious sleep. Slept in and had breakfast in bed and relaxed with coffee and a book. And to top it off I came home to a clean house and happy twins and toddler. You’re amazing Ryan!
Our sleep deprivation continues with Ryan and I waking up almost every hour last night. Luckily Ryan was home! On a happy note it was warm a couple days ago and I took the twins and Ian to the park to meet up with Ian’s buddy’s (and their mom’s who are my buddy’s 😜).
My friend Anna mentioned that the twins could go in the baby swing together and I was like, “oh my gosh, they can?! They’re already big enough?” Brilliant! They loved it in the swing and Ian had so much fun pushing them.
Also, another first: I nursed both twins at the park while Ian played. My friend Megan held Leo while I nursed Dylan and then vice versa. It went great and I felt like Super Mom.
So overall even though I have been struggling at night with the constant wake ups, day-to-day life is great. I have a great rhythm and routine going with Ian and the kiddos and overall we have so much fun together during the day. This lack of sleep time is such a short moment in our lives and I constantly have to remind myself of this and that I am so blessed with what I have and the help and support. Having twins and a toddler is hard work but so rewarding and I love it!!!
