    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…

    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…

    Diaper Caddy Organization for Baby

    Diaper caddies are a necessity in our home, and I’m sure, in any home with a babe in diapers! It’s a perfect organization/storage solution to keep all baby essentials in one little neat place. When the boys were newborns, we used to have 3 of these organizers–1 for each room: our bedroom, the twins’ room, and living room. Now we have 2 because the boys moved out of our room completely when they hit 3 months, so we no longer need one in our room. Since caring for these boys require all our attention, I figure that I should make things easier for us.. call me lazy if you want,…
