3 Months - A Blink in Time

Wow - they are 3 months old (3 months and 11 days) - unbelievable how the time has gone by - They are getting so big - when I last weighed them Sean is now up to 16 lbs and Nick is up to 13 lbs - insanity! I can't wait until they are at the next doctor appointment and I can get their official weights and lengths. These boys are so big!

Life is getting under control and they are getting on a nice schedule - They eat about every 3 - 4 hours during the day. And I get 5 to 6 hours at night - feeling rested. Every now and then we have a bad night of sleep where they revert back to an every 2 hour schedule of fussiness.

They are now up for 1 hour to 2 hours between feedings - little catnaps here and there for 15 to 30 minutes with a few longer naps 1 to 2 hours where I can get things done. Unfortunately it is hard to get them to do the long nap at the same time. I can only catch the catnaps with them at the same time.

I can't wait until it is warmer out and we can go for really long walks to help me lose this extra baby weight that is hanging on. I am tired of the extra 30 lbs I am still carring around. My boys are laughing and cooing and it so wonderful to see their big smiles!

Aside from failing at breastfeeding after I had to switch to formula for their jaundice - we couldn't get a good latch to get them getting anything from me we had to go full time to formula.

I am succeeding at cloth diapering. Cloth diapering twins - everyone said I was insane. It is super easy - and they look so cute in their diapers! I am a fan of the covers with inserts - easy to change and easy to wash. I like the pockets for when I go on trips.

I am going to try to be more diligent about posting - it is a nice place to keep my thoughts down. Thanks for visiting -
