How is it that babies get cuter every day? Madeleine and Riley are now a week old. Amazing. Here they are posing for the camera in their bouncy seats.
So far, life with newborns is amazing, wonderful, and sometimes downright confusing. Some questions:
1. Why will Maddie and Riley sleep in their crib when napping during the day, but insist on being held to sleep at night?
2. How the heck is it possible to get a proper "latch-on" when nursing when one only has two hands to a) keep both flailing baby arms under control and b) get the delicate baby mouth to open wide enough to stuff in enough boob?
3. Why will the twins sleep seemingly forever during the day, but love to be up at night?
These are, of course, rhetorical questions unless anyone has advice that they'd like to share.
I'm managing to rest, eat, and stay clean only because my mom and stepdad are here to help. Otherwise, I'd be a lot cause. And I'm having to resort to wearing my husband's size XL button-up-the-front shirts because I don't really have any nursing-appropriate clothes. So I look like a slob. But I'm very comfortable! And who's seeing me anyway?
Will try to post more as I can.
