I'd say it's official. Luke is sleeping through the night and Taylor is sleeping through the night with some help from the pacifier. The last 2 nights have gone really well. Last night we fed them at 8:30, put them to bed around 9:30. Taylor woke at 3, wanting her pacifier and then they woke up at 4:30, Nick fed them and I fed them at 8:00.  Whoo hoo....the night before Taylor woke up a lot more but she seems content with the pacifier. So I'm hoping this keeps up and we get full nights sleep! Good for us all!

Things I've Learned as a New Mom

  • BJ's brand formula is the exact same as Enfamil and it's CHEAP! 52 oz for $19.99. Taylor's Neosure is $14.33 for 12 oz.
  • It's super helpful when people fix meals for you. We still have a few meals left and it's great for the days when you just don't have the energy.
  • Diapers are an awesome gift. We just now at 3 months started buying diapers.
  • It's important to ask new moms how they are doing, to not blow them off for a glimpse of the baby. It means a lot when people ask how you are, and have normal conversation with you. 
  • Going to the grocery store when your husband comes home is like a mini vacation.
  • Belly skin and belly buttons never return to the way they were before twins.
  • The calmer you are the quicker the baby calms down. (most times)
  • Days pass by much faster at home with the babies then when I worked in an office.
  • Nothing is ever clean enough.
  • There is nothing softer than baby's skin.
  • The days you have headaches are the days the babies cry a lot.
  • A baby's smile will make you forget about all the crying.
  • Just when you forget a baby boy can pee on you, he will pee on you and all over himself.
  • Take a shower every day, put makeup on, do your hair and dress like you'd leave the house. You feel way better about yourself and you can jet out the door when hubby gets home if you need to. lol
