1 Month Old Twins!
On Sunday my babies were 1 month old! I can't believe how quickly time is going by. They are such precious little boys and I want time to slow down so I can enjoy this cute baby stage more. Overall I've found being a mom to twins so much easier than I'd expected. I'm sure a lot of that has to do with the fact that they normally sleep pretty well. I don't do well with little sleep so when they sleep good things are much easier.
They had some rough nights in the last few weeks because we've been dealing with thrush, Isaac latching wrong, and my milk supply being a little low. But things are getting better. The thrush is clearing up and Isaac has been latching correctly again, so I don't want to scream every time we nurse. Also I started drinking more water and eating oatmeal and my milk supply seems so have gotten better. I have been giving Isaac a 2oz bottle most evenings to help out since he's such a piggy, but hopefully my milk supply will fully catch up and I won't need to much longer.
Isaac is around 9lbs now and Caleb is around 8lbs (according to my home scale) which is great. At 2 weeks Isaac was 7lb 9oz and Caleb was 6lb 12.5oz so in 3.5 weeks they've both gained over a pound. Can you tell which is which? LOL
I love seeing how different they are already. Isaac is definitely more demanding and vocal. He loves attention. Caleb is calmer and easy-going. Both love to be cuddled and talked to. They have started being awake a little more during the day which means they want more of my time, but they still sleep quite a bit too.
I am so blessed to have these two little boys, and their 3 adorable older brothers who love them to pieces.
