In the spring of 2014 I found out I was pregnant with twins and started documenting my journey in a weekly post. I will be periodically posting these past writings, starting from the beginning. This was written December 8, 2014.
We’ve got a couple two month-ers on our hands! We are watching them grow before our very eyes and boy are they growing fast. Not just size wise but developmentally too.
Lucy is our flirty sassy pants. She wears her heart on her sleeve and always let’s you know exactly how she’s feeling. She has a different expression for every second of the day but it’s her innocently coy smile that is always melting our hearts.
Karson is more introspective, He’ll calmly and contemplatively observe everything and take it all in. He is so loving and always wants to be held but he also loves playing on his playmat for short periods of time until he wants to be held again.
They can’t wait to meet Santa. We’ve been getting them into the holiday spirit, singing lots of Christmas songs but they also love the Itsy Bitsy Spider and The Wheels on the Bus.
Lucy weighs about ten pounds and Karson is still under nine. We’re keeping our eye on our little Big Guy. He’s a more passive eater than his sister. It seems like all we do is nurse though and I’m just waiting for the day when he starts cruising past his sister. She’s just about grown out of her newborn sized clothes and Karson will be close behind as he’s just about the same size in length. Saying goodbye to those tiny little clothes will be hard but I’m happy to see them grow.
It hasn’t taken them long to find the comfort of Daddy and my shoulder and they are also starting to figure out they’re not the only one vying for our attention. Every once in a while one will look over at the other with an expression that says, “Um wait a minute. What is that?” They are also picking up on each other’s cue to cry which hasn’t really been an issue until lately. If one starts to fuss, the other is sure to follow.
We’re managing to get some sleep around here but it’s been pretty shotty lately. I suppose sleep is overrated anyways. I’ve started wearing them around the house, one on my front and one on my back. This has really helped me get a few things done every once in a while, especially when Daddy’s gone.
We’re nine weeks in and although I can’t say it’s gotten any easier, I do think it has become more fun as they are starting to interact with us more. We’re looking forward to the babies’ first Christmas and all that will come with it. Although they won’t remember, we are sure to never forget.
