    11 Month Twins: Developmental Milestones, Skills, and Updates

    We are 1 month shy away from the boys first birthday! I know at each month I say it’s so crazy how fast time flies and how fast the boys are growing but I say it again because it’s so true!!! Can’t believe it that they’re already 11 months old!! In this last month, I got to spend some more time with the boys because it was my spring break for work. We spent my spring break being pretty busy but also really nice to get out of the house and hang out with some friends. They even got to go on a little playdate with other kiddos while all…

    Introducing Solids to Twins

    Per doctor recommendation, we decided to introduce solids to the boys when they turned 6 months old! Like everything else I do for the twins, I did some research to figure out how to go about doing this thing. Everything we do is new to me since I am a first-time parent and I don’t have too many mama friends. I try to just figure this all out on my own with my own research. How to know when your baby is ready for solids! has interest for your foods. My boys began to have major staring issues when we would eat anything. They would also open their mouth if…

    Tips for Increasing Breastmilk Supply

    Breastfeeding has never been easy for us. With an inconsistent supply of milk, it was hard trying to produce enough breastmilk for 2 boys, whose intake is only increasing. I did so much research and followed all of these different things listed below to increase my milk supply! Consistently follow a pumping schedule. This was number 1. I would pump right after I breastfeed to empty out my breasts. My lactation consultant taught me that lactation will increase 2x once the breast is emptied. Pretty much you get a refill as long as it’s emptied. More stimulated your breasts are, the more milk it will produce. Even when my boys…

    Feeding twins at 0-3 months

    The first 3 months was so bittersweet for me. As much as I enjoyed my babies in the first 3 months of their lives, it was the hardest season ever trying to get adjusted to their feeding and sleep schedule, let alone getting adjusted to having 2 additional humans move in to our home. Feeding issues at birth From birth, we had feeding issues. The boys would inconsistently latch while we were at the hospital, so I had to use the hospital breastpump. I remember I would pump for 15 minutes or so, only to find that there was just 1 or 2 drops that came out. I would use…

    Motor Development from Tummy Time to Walking

    This past weekend Wyatt started walking! I’m 100% positive that Owen will follow along soon as well. I wanted log and track their motor development from birth to now at 10 months. Wyatt has always been a little bit ahead of the game in the motor development department. It’s so interesting to see them develop differently even though their environment has been exactly the same. The only difference is that Wyatt was positioned further down in pregnancy while Owen was positioned above his brother having “more room to grow” as our doctor would tell us. Hence, Owen our 2nd born is 1 pound heavier, 1 inch taller, and couple centimeters…

    10 Month Twins: Developmental Milestones, Skills, and Updates

    This past month has been crazy! My blog. It has been now 1 month since I started blogging, and it has been a lot of fun for me as it serves as an outlet where I can write out and process how things have been going for us. I also joined several Facebook groups and have been learning a lot from the mom blogging community. I’m still pretty noob and don’t know how to really work this wordpress site, but I’m learning as I go, and I’m pretty proud of myself for being to get this thing rolling. Home without Husby. Paul went on an emergency trip to Korea so…

    Daily Schedule for 9 Month Old Twins

    I heard somewhere that babies thrive on routine. When they know what to expect for the day, they are happier. For us to implement an expected daily schedule, I would have be a full-time, stay-at-home mom, and currently, these boys have multiple environments and caretakers as I work 3 days out of the week. So I see following a routine as a luxury in its own way. I’m a believer of routines. Routine looks like doing a sequence of activities at the same time everyday. Well, that sounds like the perfect day for me! NOT. I do NOT like routine. I am total go-with-the-flow kinda gal. I like spontaneity. I…

    9 Month Twins: Developmental Milestones, Skills, and Updates

    The twins were SICK all month long!! This past month, the boys went through cycles of getting each other sick. One would get sick and then when he finally got better, he would say, “Okay, now it’s your turn!” Runny noses, coughing, and clinginess for 30 days… The cold weather and added rain probably didn’t help either. Having sick babies is no fun, especially when you have TWO sick babies and they BOTH want to be held all day long. (There were a few days like that this month, and my attitude was just plain stinky on those days) My body tells me I cant hold both of them anymore.…
