    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…

    What to take in your hospital bag when you give birth

    Just a warning, I kind of write in detail on some birthing things so be aware! As a first time mom, I had no idea what to do. I had no idea you were even supposed to pack a hospital bag? But my perinatologist recommended that I should get that bag packed a couple weeks before my induction date which was at 36 weeks. At the hospital, they gave me a booklet that a list of things to bring, but I also decided to google and pinterest to figure out what more I might need to bring. For me, I ended up getting our bag together by 34 weeks, and…

    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…

    Our journey to conceiving and finding out I was pregnant with twins!

    I hope to eventually blog about my entire pregnancy journey from getting pregnant to birth, but for now I want to share our story of getting pregnant and finding out I was pregnant with twins! The journey: our fears in growing our family. We previously had lots of fears about having children. Responsibility. I used to say, if you have a child, you’re stuck with them and can’t return it!! Yes, I do realize it is a bit of a ridiculous joke, because you should never consider children as items to be returned. But my perspective was that welcoming a child into your family is such a tremendous life change…

    Postpartum: Overcoming Anger

    I generally don’t consider myself to be a person who gets angry easily. Trained to be patient Working with kids with special needs for the past 6 years, I really feel like I was in patience training school. No matter how much my hair was pulled, my skin was scratched, or face was spat at, I was able keep my emotions steady. I really felt proud to be working in the field that I’m in and to keep at it to the point where I’m pursuing a higher degree in it. I found that I truly enjoy working with children and teens with behavioral problems and to teach them appropriate…

    Do you want more kids?

    One of the few questions we get asked here and there. When Paul and I got married almost 4 years ago, we both agreed that we didn’t want to have kids right away, but when we do start having kids, Paul wanted at least 3 children and I wanted 5. Yes, I admit I’m a bit cray cray, and do I still want 5? Maybe I do.. Maybe I don’t.. Fear of Having a Third I really would love to have a daughter. I mean, I describe myself to be a “pink person” and I love “girly” and “glittery” things. When I used to nanny a 3-year-old girl, I used…
